How can two veils exist and be used as a sacred objects at the same time? The whole concept is absurd and one bad apple does ruin the bunch. If one is not authentic they both most likely are not. Its all about the shrine and generating cash. Shame on the Roman Catholic Church!

i am really shocked to read all this ignorant comments about this man that claims to be 179 years old.maybe he has ten or twenty years less,but the fact is that this is extra ordinary person respect to all the others living people of the world, and i will tell you why. If you could like i do measure through this man's photo his vibrational energy you would understand that this is a exceptional person,because he has aquired the vibrational energy of over 1 million Bovis unity,compared to the vibrational energy of us common people that is less than seven thousands Bovis unity,and to many people is notorius that a high vibrational energy is index of longevity. My thought is that all the world competent istitutions should investigate to try to find out where and how this man has aquired all this vibrational energy,instead of being deaf to this important signals that nature gives to humanity

Wow, none of you have any good evidence to how this can be a hoax, because it isn't. Also shut up about the god damn CGI already. You skeptics always jump to the conclusion of "Oh my god, it's really crappy CGI." I've delt with paranormal cap my entire life, My family believed in witchcraft, and I'm learning the arts of black magic myself. Science exist, but so does the supernatural. Trust me, I've seen alot to know.

Eh bleh. The only scandal here is that anyone cares at all about modern "poetry". You could take a Pikiwedia article, chop it up into eight-word chunks, and publish it as a "poem" these days.

"Gayle Newland says that for two years she thought she was meeting and having sex with her boyfriend, Kye Fortune..."

No... Gayle Newland was the person pretending to be Kye Fortune. And Gayle/Kye claims that the alleged victim knew that Gayle was Kye.

Gayle claims she told the alleged victim about her Kye personality, and the woman then added Kye on facebook. The alleged victim says that Gayle, posing as Kye, sent her a friend request, and that she had no idea who Gayle and.or Kye were.

Should be easy enough to prove which one is lying: facebook just has to say which party initiated the friend request.

A variant of the "love triangle" prank was done in the 1970s, by the staff of BBC consumer magazine programme "That's Life", on a British agony aunt; they sent a letter under the pseudonym "Thelma", which in essence was a condensed version of the plot of Shakespeare's "Hamlet", and the column replied with all the "wrong" (according to how the plot of "Hamlet" resolves) advice! They gleefully broadcast this, upon which that agony column vowed that thereafter they would be more careful in checking correspondents' names for anagrams.

I consider fascinating this story but at the same time I didnt believed it could be true. No face with capacity to speak, to whisper, could share the same brain. Certainly it was a fiction, independently of you finded the source of the news. Nevertheless, congratulations for accuracy work searching! (sorry about my errors; I dont know English! I hope this line make sense).

"Go on an overnight paranormal investigation.....

Yes. If you spend the night in a supposedly haunted place with a bunch of other people that already believe, or want to believe, being hyper aware of every little noise and visual noise in your peripheral vision, the odds are good you will become a believer.

What you will have * experienced* are the sounds of settling timber as it cools, the nocturnal wildlife, drafts, regular visual glitches and noise in your peripheral sight you'd normally ignore automatically, but now try to explain, and, quite possibly, falling asleep for five minutes, dream and wake up again. Given the preoccupation of the mind, it won't be hard to guess what you'll dream about.

Its obviously fake, as the carpet can be ripped by anyone, the shower can be turned on by anyone, anyone can tamper with the lighting, and anyone can scream like that. Probably just a prankster or just plain out fake

From the entry: Boyfriend was really a girlfriend

I would just like to point out a few things. First, if I was a guest in a hotel and heard screams like that coming from a room, I would STAY IN MY ROOM and LOCK the door cause god knows what is going on to the person in there! A lot of people aren't heroes and would hide and call the police. Second, its a small time hotel by the sound of it. Maybe there's not that many guests. The screams and audio seem to be coming from a walkie to me, so most likely the securities walkies. Lastly, you do scream like that in your sleep. Or you can. They're called night terrors. It's a legit psychological thing look it up (Yes I am a psychology major I am not making this up)
