Written Confession: Shadow Figure Scares Sleeping Brothers

The following written confession was shared via Reddit: When I was in high school, my younger brother and I shared a bedroom. His bed was on one side of the room and mine was on the other.

Written Confession: Is It a Ghost Head or Just a Trick of the Light?

Written Confession: Is It a Ghost Head or Just a Trick of the Light?

“In this copy I increased the contrast because the original was in a very low light setting. My mom was trying to take pictures of the sunset from her bungalow. That is a tree stump that it appears to be standing behind. And a chair to the right. My mom was about 5 feet from the tree stump when she took the picture. The tree stump was only about 2 feet tall. I will send you a second picture that she took with the figure absent from a slightly different angle. She was the only person on this private beach that extended out to the shoreline. To me, it looks like a young boy. To my 6 year old daughter it looks like a dragon with its mouth open lol.  So to each their own! Oh, one observation I made, the tree stump has 3 “tiers” kinda like a cake.  The middle tier becomes obstructed in the picture with the figure.  Almost makes me think the apparition is in front of and not behind the tree stump. If it is in fact an apparition.  Just a thought!”

I lived there with my two high school buddies (M & R) from UT and they were getting ready to move back home while I was planning to move into another apartment in the area. R and I had always been into paranormal activities, including exploring houses which were formerly scenes of horrific incidents or doing ouija boards in known haunted areas. M had grown up Mormon, and although he is no longer, "f***ing with the devil" as he called it, was still out of his fun time wheelhouse.

Written Confession: Ghost Cat Caught on Camera in Arkansas

“My wife and three kids and I were in vacation last weekend in Eureka Springs Arkansas. We had to go visit the Crescent Hotel and do the ghost tour. Long story short, I caught a pic of what can only be described as a ghost cat. It was a ‘live’ pic on my iPhone.
