…There would be one each time, a different number and suit, just leaning against the window at floor level. I never saw a court card, mainly high number cards.
I thought that maybe a street magician had a friend on the inside who was helping with a card-thru-window trick, but it wouldn’t make sense for a large financial institution to play games inside their own building….
I saw a very unusual frog
…During the ensuing investigation a “celebrity officer” from Scotland Yard called “Fabian” was brought in on the case. He had no luck himself and after h he enquired of locals as to “The owner of the large black dog he had seen in the lanes around Meon Hill” the locals refused to speak to him any more. Since then, there have been other “Black Shuck” sightings and in 1976, a plain perfectly round crop circle was discovered near the base of the hill….
Numerous staff members at the gym have been reporting stories of ghost encounters to me. A janitor said that he saw a misty-looking humanoid moving across the roof while screaming, and a cleaner was nearly pushed into the pool by an unseen presence. Several of the gym trainers have talked about hearing laughter like that of a young child, and one trainer in particular described locking the gym up for the night and seeing shadowy figures moving around by the second floor window. I have had a plethora of experiences around the area as well – with my first being when I heard some bizarre ice cream van-style music coming from a nearby landfill hill. I was effectively hypnotised by this music, and the phrase ‘I had the overwhelming urge to follow it’ came into my head. My father – who had been training with me – called me and snapped me out of it….
…Later in the day, apropos of nothing, I suddenly realised it was a Eurasian Woodcock, although I don’t know where I learned that.
I have never seen a woodcock before, and If I was ever going to I would have thought it would be on a rural heath, rather than on the clean flagstones under the Ludgate building….
While cycling in the countryside in June I saw a middle aged man kneeling in an empty field. His back was to me but I could see him tidying something away into a satchel. I thought he could have been a metal detectorist or a geo cacher….
Ghost looked a little like Amy Winehouse
…A young woman from the local village, riding a white horse, came up to the squat tower. From her elevated position on the horse she started to talk with him. The were friendly to each other, and when the Airman mentioned some upcoming leave she invited him to tea with her family.The day came, and he went down the lane to their farmhouse. An older woman answered the door, who bore a resemblance to the rider. when the airman asked after the girl he learnt that this was the girls mother. The girls ageing mother stated that she had died falling from her horse two years earlier.He returned to his post the next night, and with his last check-in he claimed he saw her again. She was coming to him. After he failed to respond to his next scheduled check, a unit was sent out. They found him dead….
…I was levitated six feet above the floor, on able to move my head. After a sharp right angle I would be released and dropped above my bed. The reality of the experience was often proven as I would find myself lying on top of a made bed, rather than under the duvet where I had been when I fell asleep….
A third-century temple to the secret god Mithras lies under the headquarters of Bloomberg L.P. At the altar of every Mithraeum is a frieze of Mithras letting the blood from the neck of captured bull. He is one of three blood letters, with a snake and a dog taking another third each. In 1996 Bloomberg acquired a 30% share in Merrill Lynch, whose corporate logo is a bull….
