Go home 2016 you are drunk. Also Evil. And a bit satanic.

So, with our GMing hats on, what's really going on here? And what's about to happen?

Well if all the waters turn red we're definitely in Revelations territory.

Ladies and gents I give you an intriguing NPC for your late 19th/early 20th Century games. Would fit perfectly in a 1920s Call of C'thulu game. She'd make a fantastic ally or a potential rival and given the early deaths of all her husbands she might even serve as a villain.
Miss Cora M. Strayer ran a detective agency on the South Side of Chicago in the early 1900s. She was awesome.

Why exactly is the BBC investigating this subject? What is it that we're not being told? Are we about to be surveiled via our own plumbing? Are they looking for a new way to collect the licence fee? I think we should be told.
When a man in Thailand went to the toilet, a python sank its teeth into his penis. What animals can navigate the sewers to pop up in your loo?

An interesting article with a nice description towards the end of what an ancient and possibly sacred tunnel is actually like. Could be useful research for a modern archological game or a semi-historical one.
The chance discovery beneath a nearly 2,000-year-old pyramid leads to the heart of a lost civilization

The authorities have their cover story ready to go but what did they really find?
​The good news: The Loch Ness Monster has been captured on sonar. The bad news: "Nessie" is a prop from a Sherlock Holmes film that sank in the loch in 1969.

And to think I was just going to go with an escape pod from the Nautilus.

Now this is a plot I'd like to see. Imagine PCs being hired to protect someone important from a vengeful revenant that turns out to be what's left of an innocent victim that the VIP had sacrificed to dark powers.

The 'legal name' thing seems to be pure bunkum so what's really going on here? Who is paying for these (the're still going up, one went up in Aberdeen recently)? What is the real message? 
Scores of posters have appeared around the UK warning of "legal name fraud". What do they mean and who is paying for them?

I am unsure what to make of this. When I followed the link I expected it to be a "satire" news site but it appears to be a genuine news page.

Just the thing to add a little spice to your police procedural/investigation game.
Baffled cops witnessed clothes flying across the room and a levitating dog at a property in Rutherglen last week.

I ain't buying the explanation.
Back in 2006, a sealed basement beneath a London orphanage was unlocked after many years. The building was actually scheduled for demolition, and so it's a good thing no one demolished the place before taking a peek inside the long-forgotten dusty space. At first glance, there were hundreds of large...

Of course that's just what they want us to think. So who was really resposnsible? 
Something odd went on with three of the four United States presidents elected during the 1840s.

Something for anyone looking for ways to inconvenience PCs searching for stuff you don't want them to find yet.

Ladies and gentlemen I give you an NPC for your late 19th - early 20th century game. Con woman? Wronged Royal? Murderess? Sorceress? Crazy woman? Supernatural being? It's up to your players to decide.

Do they get called in to investigate the deaths? Does she employ them in some wild goose chase? Perhaps they're struck by her ability to persuade people of clearly outlandish things and decide to investigate?
In the summer of 2013, I was sent to the University of Texas in Austin to research the life of Harry Houdini for a TV biopic. While perusing his collection of personal correspondence, I stumbled across the most insane letter I have ever read, sent by a woman who claimed...
