NEWS: Children in Ohio Creek Have Close Encounter with a Crocodile

The phrase “you don’t see that every day” rang frighteningly true for a group of children swimming in an Ohio creek last week, when it was discovered they were sharing the water with a seven-and-a-half-foot crocodile! The group of 16 kids were in a creek in Preble County as part of a weekly activity related to nature. They had just finished a lesson about how fish escape predators lurking in the shadows, when they suddenly encountered the foreign reptilian predator themselves.

VIDEO: Creepy Faceless Dolls Terrorize Confused Missouri Towns

For a little over a week now, the towns of Crystal City and Festus in Missouri have been besieged by creepy dolls that keep popping up in random places. While so far none of the dolls have been identified as Annabelle or Chucky, their presence is almost as disturbing as the horror movie creations, as the Missouri dolls have either no faces or no heads, and no one knows where they’re coming from.

NEWS: Flat Earth Enthusiast Plans to Launch Himself in Homemade Rocket Again

Flat Earth enthusiast 'Mad' Mike Hughes hopes to once again take to the skies inside of a homemade rocket at a launch scheduled for this weekend. The 'self-taught rocket scientist' made worldwide headlines last year when, after a series of failed attempts, he successfully soared nearly 2,000 feet into the air via a steam-powered craft that he built himself in an attempt to prove that the planet is flat. Having come away from the stunt largely unscathed, Hughes reportedly plans to up the proverbial ante with another launch this month.

Back in April 2017, one woman unwittingly and explosively captured video of a green meteor firing across the sky.

Written Confession: Strange Rock Looks an Awful Lot Like a Tiny Skull

Written Confession: Strange Rock Looks an Awful Lot Like a Tiny Skull

A listener of The Confessionals recently reached out via social media and then email for opinions about a strange rock he found in Texas. He first submitted photos of the rock/skull to the Paleontology Department at the University of Colorado, which responded that it “vaguely resembled a skull.” We think that the weathered-looking artifact, though it is no bigger than a man’s thumb, looks a bit more than “vaguely” like a skull. The object appears to have eye sockets, a nasal cavity, and possible mouth with teeth. The closest comparison we can draw at present is to a fetal chimpanzee skull, though there are many other possibilities as to what it could really be. Here are the details of its discovery:

NEWS: Fake Russian Doctor is Also a Former Vampire

At some point or another, we’ve all probably visited our family doctor and needed to give a blood sample. What we’ve probably never done is wonder if our doctor is sampling a little of that blood for himself. It’s an eerie thought that may now be being entertained by the people of Chelyabinsk, Russia after a local “doctor” was discovered to not only be a fraud, but also be a former vampire. Here’s the strange story:
