Interestingly, not long after I posted that I saw not one but two instances of independent creation being brought up (though ...

Huh. You're still here? I'll be damned.

A True Scary Encounter

Banes at 12:00AM, Oct. 13, 2016



I continue to be an occasional fan of true scary stories found online. The “realistic” ones are cautionary tales, and might even give an important reminder to be on guard and keep one's eyes open…and the more unusual/“unexplained” stories are pretty darned entertaining and addictive!
