Yeah it is kinda sad but to learn about some one else that came before you  not some sort of hero that you might hear of in history class but a person like you and me whose life was a beacon of light to those who it touched; but only a dim light on an opposite shore to those who were not graced to have known them.   Or quite the opposite, some one whose life was full of tragedy because of their mistakes or because of others.  Real people with real emotions;  the family they did or didn't leave behind.  It is their story that I long to know; thats why I research as I do.  Because All any body wants is to be remembered. The greatest artists and writers in time have struggled to achieve this.  It is mans basic struggle for imortality even if only by a name.  People like me; seek out those that had no great deed that gave them that imortallity perhaps only because their time ran out.

I loved the sword swallower. He swallowed an umbrella, then accidently hit the button to open it while it was still inside of him!!!

ya, darwins are funny. I like the had to pee while driving on a mountain in the middle of a storm. He pulled over and started relieving himself over the guardrail. A bolt of lightning hit the rail about 100 yards up. The electricity travled down the wet rail, up the mans urine stream, and blew off his tallywacker!

Darwinian forces are not working fast enough....

Take the guy who took a knife and stuck it 4 inches into his chest, just to see what would happen.  He thought it was so cool just stuck in him, that he went next door to show his friend. His friend makes his int check and calls 911.  A huge surgical team removes the knife in such a way he does not bleed out.

The parents who did not know their son was making bombs, for fun, in his room.  He blew off his right hand, part of his face, and all of the back wall of his room.  When asked, he was just making them because "They were neat."

And that was just in the last two weeks....

Byberry

I live 1 mile away from here and traveled through this large, creepy estate several occasions. Its a must for all who are swift, risk takers and have a guide .

 :shock:

WHERE IT'S LOCATED:

Since there are no other pre-Revolutionary houses on Byberry Road is suburban Somerton, Pennsylvania, the haunted house on Byberry lane will not be hard to find. However, since this is a private home that doesn't offer tours, visitors are discouraged. Please respect the privacy of the residents.

Somerton Pennsylvania is a quiet suburb of Philadelphia. Located a hour from downtown Philadelphia, the old wooden house on quiet, winding Byberry Road has quite a haunted history.

IN THE BEGINNING:

The house, in the old colonial style, began construction in 1732. The house has been little altered or modified since its pre-Revolutionary War origin. The house, which sits back from the road, has regal white pillars that support the roof. The house has been occupied continuously, by one family or another since its construction. The current residents are David and Dolores Robinson and David's elderly father

GHOSTLY SIGHTINGS AND OCCURRENCES:

The Robinson's moved into the house, in 1960. Almost immediately they began to hear human footsteps made by "people" other than themselves. Some doors also opened by themselves. Mrs. Robinson, numerous times over the years, has seen doors open by themselves, with no draft or wind present to account for their movement. Sometimes a door would open by itself, immediately after she had shut it. One night Mrs. Robinson was awakened six times by phantom footsteps and self- closing doors.

Mr. Robinson Senior was surprised one night to find a woman in his room. He thought she had either a black veil or long black hair. She disappeared almost as quickly as she arrived. Since the Robinson's had no visitors that night it is assumed she was a ghost.

Still Haunted? Yes indeed.
In the midst of a dysfunctional world there is function.
