Fort Report: Alien Abductions, Bigfoot Casts and Bad News, and Tingling Bricks


Hello again, Oddnauts!

Welcome to another edition of the Fort Report, loaded with links to alien visitation, bad news for Bigfoot hunters, tingling bricks, witchcraft for weight loss, thieving sprits, craigslist for ghostbusters, and more! Read on for some of the best of WF’s leftover links, and remember.. don’t lick the brick just because someone tells you to.

Alien Nation: Have Humans Been Abducted by Extraterrestrials?

A prestigious Harvard psychiatrist, John Edward Mack, thought so. His sudden death leaves behind many mysteries, and an annual gathering of abductees. Vanity shares this great story.


When Southern Bigfoot Casts Are Really Western

Loren Coleman writes: “The proliferation of easy-to-obtain plaster of Paris and resin copies of well-known tracks of Bigfoot/Sasquatch, we all knew, was going to be a problem. The chickens have come home to roost. The field has to face the consequences of less-than-scientific decisions on how the evidence has been handled.”

Strange case of the tingling brick

Beamish Museum held memory days for former band members to contribute their stories – and one of the strangest was the tale of the tingling brick… that people used to lick.

On the hunt for Ghostbusters

Perth’s Spirit Hunters, a group of local not-for-profit “paranormal investigators”, are looking for someone to join their squad. Must have goatee. Just kidding. (Or am I?)

Ghost town, under water for 25 years, surfaces (+video)

Ghost town under water: After 25 years under water, this Argentine town is now above the surface. Tourists flock to the ghost town, a bizarre, post-apocalyptic landscape that captures a traumatic moment in time.

Stretch Marks and Witchcraft:

This bulletin posting was too good not to share. A Wiccan asks a health and fitness board if they know any good spells to cure stretch marks. Things go as you expect.

A convention of visitors from another planet

As the city struggles to bring more revenue to town, one Bisbee man has given new meaning to thinking ouside the box to bring people to town: Host a UFO convention.


Things moving on their own. Strange sounds in the night. Shadows lurking in the dark. What is it about the world of paranormal that frightens people so much? This reporter doesn’t know, so he invited ghost hunters to check out his studio and everyone got scared.

Frazier Museum launches new “Mythic Creature” exhibition

Bigfoot, Loch Ness, dragons, and unicorns are mythic creatures we have heard about since childhood. Now, you can visit them at a Kentucky Museum. It has to be way more fun than the Creative Museum, anyway.

Schoolboy blames evil spirits for thieving habit

A 15-year-old Gaza High School student in Chipinge who was convicted of stealing US$200 at Pyramid beerhall in Gaza, left the court in stitches when he blamed evil spirits for his acts and his father for not resolving the matter.
