Strange Things

The Hum

‘The hum’ is a strange noise that has been heard since people became aware of its existence in the 1970s in Bristol. The hum is a rumbling noise that is only heard in certain parts of the world, in completely silent areas. The thing that makes this even stranger is that the hum is only heard by certain people.

Some have tried to explain this, however they have failed. The sound has never been located, and after hearing tests, it was declared that those who heard the sound had normal hearing.

Some people who have heard this noise claim that it is like torture. There has been one suicide directly related to the noise.

One person who heard the hum said “It’s worst at night… It’s hard to get sleep because I hear this throbbing sound in the background. You’re tossing and turning, and you get more and more agitated about it.”

UVB-76

UVB-76 is a Russian radio station that has played a static buzzing noise since the 1970s, however, every few months a coded message is said aloud on the station. It is unknown why this station exists or what the messages mean. You can still listen to this at any time.

The WOW! Signal

On August 15th, 1977, a radio astronomer named Jerry Ehman was looking for evidence of alien communication in radio waves. He discovered a signal that said “6EQUJ5”, and he circled it writing the word ‘Wow!’ next to it. This code was distinguished from various 1s and 0s.

Some people claim this signal came from Earth, but if this was true, it would have been received in other places. It was not. This signal has not been repeated since. Wow_signal

Room 428

The Ohio University (in Athens, Ohio) is commonly thought of as haunted. Room 428 of this university has been considered to be haunted so horribly, that it is inaccessible to students. There have been witnesses claiming to see things flying across the room, falling off shelves, doors randomly opening, and unexplained dark shadows.

One of the doors in the room has a strange demon-like face imprint in it. Whenever the school has replaced the door, the imprint has returned. The ghost is said to be a student who committed suicide in the room.

Mysterious Deaths

Elisa Lam

On February 19th, 2013, Elisa Lam was found dead in a water tank, after the hotel owning the water tanks started receiving complaints about the water. After checking the security cameras, footage of the last time Elisa Lam was seen before her death was released.

In the video, Elisa makes strange gestures to an unseen figure in the distance, and appears as if she is attempting to hide at certain parts. She presses many buttons in the elevator multiple times, yet nothing appears to be working. Finally, after she leaves the faulty elevator it immediately starts working.

Many people have questioned her strange behaviour in  the video,  yet there is no explanation. Some have claimed she was taking hallucinogenic drugs, yet it has been proven that there were no drugs in her body.

Many people also wonder why she was in the hotel in the first place. The hotel was not one of high quality, and it had many negative reviews.

Despite countless theories, nobody knows what happened to her.

Taman Shud

In 1948, a man was found dead on an Australian beach. All pieces of evidence that could have been used to identify the man had been removed. However, police discovered a hidden pocket inside of his trousers. The pocket had a small piece of paper in it that said Taman Shud, which is Persian for “finished” or “ended.” The paper was ripped from a poem. The rest of the poem was found nearby in a parked car, next to a code that is yet to be deciphered. Nobody has figured out who this man was, who killed him, or anything else about the case.

Who Put Bella in the Wych Elm?

In 1943, four boys were poaching in a forest near Hagley, Worcestershire. They found a tall tree called a Wych Elm, and they decided to climb it in attempts to find bird’s nests. They soon found a skull inside of the tree and a severed hand nearby.

When the boys showed the police the area, the police found a wedding ring and tattered clothing nearby. The body could not be identified, and no suspects were ever found.

However, in the years after the boys found the dead body, strange graffiti began appearing in the town. The graffiti would always say “Who put Bella in the Wych Elm?”

The creator of the graffiti was soon caught, however their name was never released. Police did not believe that the graffiti artist was involved in the possible murder.

Rant – Simple Grammar Mistakes

Grammar is the difference between “Let’s eat, Dad.” or “Let’s eat Dad.” Grammar can entirely change the meaning of a sentence. Grammar can make a piece of writing excel, however, if one does not know how to use it properly, it can ruin the fluency of reading. I am bothered most by the fact that the grammar failures I see many people make are extremely simple.

Y, R, and U are letters not words. They are written why, are, and you. (As in; why are you so horrible at grammar.) I despise when people write like this. It takes half of a second more to write the entire word. It only takes pressing two more buttons on a keyboard, or writing two more letters with a pencil/pen.

Sentences, names, dates, and many other words start with CAPITAL LETTERS! Maybe, people don’t understand how the Caps Lock button works. If you press the Caps Lock button, EVERY LETTER YOU WRITE WILL BE CAPITALIZED. If you hold the Shift key, letters you write will be capitalized while you hold the key down. It isn’t complicated at all, so learn how to do it!

Contractions are when you use apostrophes to combine words. For example; they’re, you’re, or haven’t. I find it torturous to read sentences that use the word ‘your’ in sentences like “Your terrible at grammar.” Your is defined as “belonging to or associated with the person or people that the speaker is addressing.” (Thanks for the definition Google.) You’re is short for you are.”

One thing about these simple grammar mistakes I truly hate, is that people blame auto-correct for most of their failures. They need to be introduced to a simple action known as proofreading. If you don’t know what proofreading is, I suggest you return to the first grade.

 

 

Prison Escape ~ Choi Gap-Bok

Choi Gap-Bok was a man who was very skilled at yoga. In fact, he had practised yoga for nearly 23 years. This man was 50 years old when he was arrested because he was under suspicion of robbery. He had been in and out of jail for a large portion of his life, but on September 17th he escaped his prison cell.

To escape his cell, he received lotion and covered himself. Next, he walked up to the 5.9 inch tall, 17.7 inch wide food slot and slipped through. This took him only 30 seconds! He managed to do this while the guards were sleeping.

Prison Cell

After he escaped his cell, he climbed out of a window in the prison. He then entered a residential home and stole a credit card and car keys. After traveling a short distance, he abandoned the car and ran into Mount Nam. He moved through the mountains at night, and hid  during the day to avoid the police.

A note written by Choi Gap-Bok was found in a village saying “I am Sorry, signed Framed Thief Choi Gap-Bok”. The police managed to find him near the village, and he was caught.

He still claims that he is innocent, and that he was framed. However, he was returned to the prison. His new cell has a much smaller food slot.
