The Master Mystery (1921)
Toads Entombed in Stone and Coal Found Alive After Hundreds of Years
It is one of the strangest phenomena reported. Something that can’t happen, but stories saying it does turn up again and again anyway. Stories of animals found alive locked deep within stone or wood, with no observable way they could have entered. This is the mystery of entombed animals.
According to official and reputable sources there have been over 90 recorded unexplained cases of amphibians being found alive but fully encased in coal pockets or stone geodes. Of these cases, 40 involved frogs or toads. The most well respected case is documented in the Reader’s Digest book – “Mysteries of the Unexplained”. There is a pattern to the various discoveries. In most cases the frog is discovered in a chamber full of mucous and is usually very pale or white in colour. After a few minutes exposed to air it comes-to-life and is usually quite active for a short while before turning grey and apparently developing respiratory difficulties. In most cases the animal dies within 24 to 72 hours but there are some references that when these poor creatures were quickly allowed into fresh pond water they seem to have survived indefinitely.
Creepy mystery arm. No one can be seen behind the girl from where this arm is coming. Look closely.
We Interrupt This Broadcast for a Special Premonition…
On the morning of Saturday, June 1, 1974, the movie Mrs. Lesley Brennan of England was watching was interrupted by a special bulletin announcing that an explosion had ripped through the Flixborough Nypro plant, a nearby chemical plant that produced materials used in nylon, and that several people had died. About noon that day, two friends paid her a visit, and she asked them if they had hear about the accident. They had not.
And neither had anybody else, because the explosion actually took place at 4:53 P.M. the death toll was twenty-eight, and many were injured. When they heard later newscasts about the explosion, the three women at first thought the newscasters were stating the details incorrectly. But a check of the paper the next day showed the actual time of the explosion.
Brennan could offer no explanation. Perhaps she had fallen asleep and actually dreamed the telecast. Whatever happened, she had relayed the story of the event to two friends almost five hours before it actually happened.

Brú na Bóinne (Irish: Palace of the Boyne) is a World Heritage Site in County Meath, Ireland and is the largest and one of the most important prehistoric megalithic sites in Europe.
The site is a complex of Neolithic chamber tombs, standing stones, henges and other prehistoric enclosures, some dating from as early as 35th century BC - 32nd century BC. The site predates the Egyptian pyramids and was built with sophistication and a knowledge of science and astronomy, which is most evident in the passage grave of Newgrange. The site is often referred to as the “Bend of the Boyne” and this is often (incorrectly) taken to be a translation of Brú na Bóinne (Palace of the Boyne).
The site covers 780 ha and contains around 40 passage graves, as well as other prehistoric sites and later features. The majority of the monuments are concentrated on the north side of the river. The most well-known sites within Brú na Bóinne are the impressive passage graves of Newgrange, Knowth and Dowth, all famous for their significant collections of megalithic art. Each stands on a ridge within the river bend and two of the tombs, Knowth and Newgrange, appear to contain stones re-used from an earlier monument at the site. There is no in situ evidence for earlier activity at the site, save for the spotfinds of flint tools left by Mesolithic hunters.
