5 Ghosts of Presidents Haunting White House
5 Ghosts of Presidents Haunting White House Number 5: Abraham Lincoln The most well-known White House ghost is the shade of Abraham Lincoln, who was assassinated in 1865. The first person to report seeing Lincoln’s ghost was First Lady Grace Coolidge, who lived in the White House in the 1920s. She reportedly saw him standing at a window in the Oval Office, looking across the Potomac to what had once been Civil War battlefields. A well-known Lincoln ghost story was reported by 20th-century British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, who was a guest at the White House. After a long bath, and naked except for a cigar, he walked into the adjoining bedroom Another interesting Lincoln sighting was in 1942, when Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands answered a knock at the door of the White House bedroom where she was staying, saw Lincoln standing there in a coat and top hat, and fainted. Others said to have seen Lincoln within the White House include Presidents Theodore Roosevelt, Herbert Hoover, and Dwight Eisenhower; First Ladies Jacqueline Kennedy and Lady Bird Johnson; and presidential children Susan Ford and Maureen Reagan. Both Maureen Reagan and her husband saw Lincoln at the fireplace in the Lincoln Bedroom, like Churchill. Number 4 : Willie Lincoln People have also reported seeing Abraham Lincoln’s 11-year-old son Willie Lincoln, who died in the White House in 1862 of typhoid fever. Staff members of the Grant Administration first saw Willie’s ghost in the 1870s. He was seen as recently as the 1960s, when President Lyndon Johnson’s daughter Lynda Bird Johnson Robb saw Willie’s ghost — he had died in the room in which she was staying — and she says she talked with him. Number 3 : Dolley Madison First Lady Dolley Madison planted the famous White House rose garden in the early 1800s, and then 100 years later, First Lady Ellen Wilson requested the garden be dug up. But garden workers reported that Dolley Madison’s ghost appeared and refused to let them tear up her garden. Since then, an unexplained smell of roses is sometimes experienced inside the White House and it’s attributed to the ghost of Dolley. Number 2 : Andrew Jackson The Rose Bedroom was President Andrew Jackson’s bedroom, and many White House employees claim to have seen or heard the former president in this room; they say he is either laughing heartily or swearing heavily. First Lady Mary Todd Lincoln is among those who heard him cursing in the room. Number 1 : Abigail Adams Abigail Adams and her husband John, the second president of the United States (1797-1801), moved to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue from the former U.S. capital in Philadelphia. At the time, Washington, D.C. was still just a town, built mostly on swampy land on the banks of the Potomac River. Because the East Room of the new White House was the warmest and driest, Abigail used it to hang the wash. Her ghost, clad in a cap and lace shawl, has reportedly been seen heading towards the East Room, arms outstretched as if carrying laundry. There were quite a few sightings during the Taft years, but some tourists reportedly saw her as recently as 2002. (Lincoln has also been seen in the East Room; it’s where his body lay in state after he was assassinated.)

5 Most Isolated Communities At The End Of The Earth
Throughout history, people have moved across the great expanses of the globe to establish communities. Some of them have even grown into large cities which harbor millions of individuals. However, some people have chosen to remain in smaller groups that are totally off the radar. These communities have withstood the test of time in near isolation. In fact, many residents have never left the small area of isolation they call home.

7 Mythological Ways To Become Immortal
Ever wanted to become immortal? You probably have, as have many other humans. Everyone desires to avoid death either out of thirst for knowledge, a love for living, or simply out of fear. On the other hand, most humans see it as a curse. Humans are fascinated by life. Since it goes on forever, there are so many myths associated with immortality. Here, we delve into the theories and myths advanced on 7 Mythological Ways To Become Immortal . 7 . Catch Hold of the Holy Grail The Holy Grail is one of the most known pieces in Christian mythology. This is the bowl or cup that Jesus drank from at the last supper. It is also the container that Joseph of Arimathea collected Christ’s blood with at the cross. 6. Drink Ambrosia Ambrosia, a drink that tasted like honey and delivered by doves to the Olympians, was the source of Greek gods' immortality. Many mortals and demigods like Heracles were allowed to drink it while others stole it. 5. Eat the Golden Apple The Golden Apples found in the Norse mythology could be one of the answers to how to become immortal. Golden apples are extremely important to the Norse deities compared to the Greek ones. 4. Eat the Magical Peaches Peaches of immortality play a crucial role in the journey of the Chinese to the west. The monkey king, Sun Wukong, got immortality after eating peaches that he was assigned to protect. 3. Get a God Angry Many Greek myths involving mortals described them to be extreme pride or hubris. So, many of them were punished to live forever because they had challenged or tricked the gods. 2. Taunt Jesus In Christian mythology, there was this Jewish man that taunted Jesus on his way to be crucified, who is said to have hit Jesus with a shoe and asked him to hurry up. 1. Consume a Mermaid Wondering how to become an immortal? As Japanese legend has it, one way is to eat a mermaid. Japanese mythology describes a mermaid-like creature called Ningyo.

5 Cities That are Going to Disappear Soon
The next time you take a trip to see the magnificent beaches of Mali, take a leisurely gondola ride in Venice, or wonder at the architecture of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, make sure to bring your best camera. If scientific studies are accurate, photos will be the only way your great-great-grandchildren will see them. Mother Nature has slated a number of places to significantly shrink or disappear from the earth entirely by 2100 due to climate change, changing soil and sea levels, natural disasters and economic problems. It’s not too late, but these places may very well become the next Atlantis. 5. Beijing, China The land under Beijing is sinking by as much as four inches per year because of the overconsumption of groundwater, according to research published in the journal Remote Sensing this month. The rate of sinking threatens “the safety of the public and urban infrastructure,” the study says. 4. Mexico Mexico City, the worlds’ third largest city with 18.7 million people, is sinking far more than experts had originally predicted. Scientists are alarmed by the extent to which Mexico City has sunk; over the last 100 years, parts of the city have sunk as much as forty-two feet 3. Venice, Italy Venice may soon have to ditch its nickname of The Floating City - as it is sinking into the water more than five times quicker than previously thought. Venice sunk about 120mm in the 20th century due to natural and human causes. 2. London London is actually sinking, but very slowly. The land is made mainly of sedimentary rocks and since erosion is becoming a big problem environmentally, London is starting to sink. 1. Washington D.C, USA Washington, D.C., where the powers that reign over the United States reside, is sinking into the ocean. Scientists predict that the land underneath the nation's capital will drop more than 6 inches in the next 100 years, according to new research from the University of Vermont and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).

10 Scientifically Impossible Places That Actually Exist
The Seven Wonders of the Natural World may have been named too quickly. Wonders like The Grand Canyon and Victoria Falls are certainly big, and anyone who sees them will surely be impressed—but sheer size isn’t enough to truly leave a person in awe. There are other places in this world, though, that are far stranger. Places that seem almost alien, as if they could only exist on a planet that evolved separately from our own. These are places that scientists have had to struggle just to understand how they ever could have been formed. Places that will truly make you wonder—not just because they’re beautiful, but because they seem to follow scientific laws that don’t exist anywhere else on earth.

Top 5 Secret Texts Hidden on Historic Artifacts
Could the pierced ears of King Tut's ancient mask be linked to a secret inscription hidden underneath? Mind Boggler presents 5 mysterious texts hidden in secret objects in secret places... including red marks found in the unexplained shafts and tunnels of the Great Pyramid of Giza, an ancient unknown language with magic rituals written with unsolved symbols, the broken beard of King Tut's mask that revealed an amazing link to Queen Nefertiti, incredible graffiti secretly engraved on the watch of Abraham Lincoln, and a secret message for the future hidden under a giant obelisk in Rome. 5. Magic Words Using a bit of technological magic, UC Davis researchers in 2015 unlocked the secrets of a tightly rolled silver scroll revealing ancient spells and incantations written in an indecipherable form of Arabic, that used Greek letters and magical sings. The magic amulet consisted of a 2 inch long extremely thin silver foil with miniature text from an unknown religion and was recovered from an site in Jerash, Jordon , a city founded in 2000 BCE and inhabited by Greeks,Romans,and Arabs. Archaeologists believe it dates to the mid 8th Century when a devastating earthquake in the region buried the town. Due to its age and fragility , researchers relied on CT scans and 3D modeling to virtually reveal the scroll’s text. 4. Pyramid Scheme The great pyramid of Giza, constructed in Egypt around 2500 BCE, contains numerous hidden passageways and secret chambers. Mysterious, narrow shafts lead from the king’s and Queen’s Chambers deep into the interior of the pyramid. For years, researchers had been prevented from exploring the depths of the shafts by stone doors secured with copper pins, but in 2011, Djedi , a specially developed robot ,peered beyond the doors to reveal stunning hieroglyphs drawn in red paint. The shafts should have been too small for men to fit , and researchers hope the symbols will shed new light on their purpose . 3. Pharaoh Secret Perhaps one of the most famous artifacts in all of Egyptology , King Tut’s golden face mask may not be what it has long seemed..As a secret text on the inside of the iconic treasure indicates the mask may have been made long before Tutankhamen’s reign. The discovery was made in 2015 after a museum worker broke off the mask’s beard and tried to superglue it back in place. Under the mask and beneath a cartouche of the king’s name were traces of “Ankhkheprure Neferneferuaten ,” Queen Nefertiti. It is now suspected that much of King Tut’s elaborate golden tomb was originally intended for his stepmother.. Adding great intrigue to that mystery of the king’s ascension and the fate of Nefertiti, whose lost tomb has never been found . 2. Lyncon’s clock When the civil war began on April 13, 1861, Abraham Lincoln’s watch in the hands of Irish watchmaker Jonathan Dillon, who commemorated the bombardment of Fort Sumter, by carving a message into timepiece that was hidden for 150 years. Donated to the Smithsonian Museum in Washington DC by Lincoln’s great grandson in 1958, the text wasn’t revealed until 2009.Inside the watch there are actually inscriptions that says “ Jonathan Dillon April 13-1861 Fort Sumpter was attacked by the rebels on the above date J Dillon..and April 13-1861 Washington thank god we have a government “ Additional secret message appear to have been added later, including the unidentified name LE Grofs as well as “Jeff Davis” 1. Fori the Force When the Mussolini Obelisk was erected in Rome in 1932, a hidden message to future civilizations wad buried beneath it. The text, known as Codex Fori Mussolini, cannot be read in its original form due to the 300 tons of stone on top. But Professors Bettina Reitz- Joosse and Han Lamers, using obscure sources in Rome’s archived, pieced it together. The message includes a 1200 word, 3 part eulogy written by Aurelio Giuseppe Amatucci describing the history of fascism and rise of Mussolini, the concerns of the Fascist Youth Organization, and the construction of the monument itself . Dr.Lamers says “the text presents Mussolini as a kind of new Roman emperor” and a “savior of the Italian people “ . The message was designed in a way that it could be discovered by the razing of the obelisk, which was intended to send the “the voice of fascism into the Future “

12 Rare and Most Expensive Gemstones In The World
Watch 12 Most Expensive Gemstones In The World 12. Jeremejevite Jeremejevite is an aluminum bearing borate mineral with associated fluoride and hydroxide. It was first found in the Adun-Chilon Mountains in Siberia in 1883. This gem has a similar hardness as quartz, 6.5 to 7.5 on the Mohs scale, and therefore is ideal for jewelry making. The Jeremejevite goes for about $2,000 per carat 11. Fire Opal Fire Opal is actually not technically a mineral but instead is a mineraloid. The reason being opal does not have a crystal structure that is required for all minerals. As noted in the chemical formula, opal is a hydrated form of silica or silicon dioxide. Opals can form in a variety of different colors depending on the environmental conditions during formation. The Fire Opal goes for about $2,300 per carat 10. Taaffeite Taaffeite is not very familiar to many due to how rare it is. In fact, it is so scarce that it’s considered to be a million times rarer than a diamond. It was discovered by gemologist Richard Taaffe in 1945 in a jeweler’s shop in Dublin, Ireland. The light violet, almost clear gemstone is the only one that has been initially identified from a faceted stone. The Taaffeite goes for about $2,500 per carat 9. Demantoid Garnet Demantoid is a green gemstone that has a “diamond-like” adamantine luster. Fascinatingly, its brilliance and dispersion actually exceed that of a diamond’s. It is also difficult to look for a demantoid larger than 10 carats as these stones are typically small in size. With the low supply, they are only usually seen on antique jewelry pieces. The Demantoid Garnet goes for about $3,300 per carat 8. Black Opal Opal gemstones have a different evaluation process than other gemstones with each one of them having their own distinct individuality. Compared to other opals, black (with body tones from N1 to N4) are considered rarest and most popular. Its body has a black color with a firey pattern that looks spectacular in contrast to the dark background. The Black Opal goes for about $3,500 per carat 7. Benitoite Considered as one of the most beautiful gems, Benitoite has a striking blue body color that has a dispersion higher than a diamond. As its name, it was discovered by the headwaters in San Benito River in San Benito County, California where it’s now declared as its state gem. While it has a high dispersion, its intense blue color can mask it. The Benitoite goes for about $3,800 per carat 6. Padparadscha Sapphire Padparadscha (pronounced pad-pah-raj-ah) sapphire, the world’s rarest sapphire, has a beautiful pinkish orange color that exhibits the mixture of the hues of ruby and yellow sapphire. Its name is derived from the Sanskrit/Singhalese word for “aquatic lotus blossom” due to its color. The Padparadscha Sapphire goes for about $8000 per carat 5. Red Beryl Red beryl (also known as bixbite, “scarlet emerald” and “red emerald) is an extremely rare type of beryl with a raspberry pink to almost purplish red color. Despite its name, it is not an emerald but it’s an entirely different gemstone. It was first discovered in 1904 by Maynard Bixby. Meanwhile, its gem quality stones can only be found in one site – the Wah Wah Mountains in Utah. The Red Beryl goes for about $10,000 per carat 4. Alexandrite Alexandrite is a very rare (and very hard to acquire) gemstone variety. It is popular for its remarkable optical properties: it undergoes dramatic color shifts depending on the lighting condition. This is caused by the rare combination of minerals including chromium, iron, and titanium. The Alexandrite goes for about $12,000 per carat 3. Jadeite Jadeite is jade’s most expensive, beautiful, and rarest variety. While it can be found in many colors, its association with the rich-emerald color of “imperial jade” continues to be highly valued. The finest stones in this color can be found in Myanmar. The Jadeite goes for about $20,000 per carat 2. Musgravite Nearing the top of the list is Musgravite, an extremely rare gemstone in the taaffeite family. The mineral was first discovered at the Musgrave Range (thus its name) in South Australia. It has shown up in other areas such as Antarctica, Greenland, and Madagascar but in highly limited quantities. As of 2005, there are only 8 known specimens of this stone to exist. The Musgravite goes for about $35,000 per carat 1. Blue Diamond Two of the most stunning examples are the Oppenheimer Blue and the Pink Star. The Oppenheimer Blue diamond is the largest Vivid Blue diamond to appear at an auction and was sold $57.5 million for weighing 14.62-carats which makes it worth $3.93 million per carat. Meanwhile, the recent world record breaker, the Pink Star diamond, was sold at a whopping $71.2 million for 59.6-carats (or $1.2 million per carat) becoming the most expensive gemstone ever sold based on its total price. #Expensivediamonds #Gemstones #Pinkstardiamond

7 Giant Human Skeletons Ever Found
It has been reported that the world-renowned and highly trusted Smithsonian Institution was allegedly accused in a lawsuit of covering up the existence of giant humans in our past. Some of their skulls may have had horns, others double rows of teeth! Some supposedly had six fingers and elongated heads and carried giant weapons. According to the report, a ruling by the US Supreme Court is what forced the world’s largest museum to release classified documents from its early 19th century archives, going far in proving the allegations. The evidence, along with testimony from Smithsonian whistle-blowers, was said to show that thousands of giant skeletons between 183 and 366 centimeters (6–12′) tall were dug up all over the United States—only to be destroyed under direct orders from high up in Smithsonian management. Indeed, a surprising number of reports of giant skeletons do exist in old newspapers. All the same, you might want to take these claims with a bag of salt.

7 Most DEADLIEST Creatures Of The Amazon!
The Amazon is like a lost world all on its own, with ancient creatures, poisonous beasts and ravaging predators roaming through the thick jungle. Many of these organisms were able to evolve relatively unobstructed for thousands of years while the underbrush around them grew more and more unwieldy. Hanging around the South American equator, these animals thrived in the hot, wet and humid greenery and swam in protected schools through the flowing Amazon River. There are so many creatures yet to be discovered in the Amazon river,that it can be a little overwhelming at times. We have spotted many strange and unusual creatures in the Amazon rainforest, but even though we recognize them, we know precious little about them. And Today we are going to look at the Most Mysterious Creatures of Amazon River .Lets Begin..

7 Scientific Plans for Colonies in Space
Until recently, the idea of living on another planet has been little more than science fiction. Lately, though, we’ve had the chance to see one of wildest dreams slowly unfold into reality. SpaceX and Mars One have started projects to colonize Mars, the European Space Agency has been talking about colonizing the Moon, and China has openly described plans to build mining colonies in outer space. It’s just a matter of time now before we see the first colonies in space. As crazy as some of these ideas might sound, you just might be able to visit any one of them in the near future.

Top 5 Haunted Castles And Bridges Built By The Devils
Who knew that the Devil had a flair for architecture?The Devil might be synonymous with evil, but if these legends are true, he might also be a master architect, mason, and engineer. As things go, there are several castles and bridges across the world whose construction is credited to the Devil. Most of these castles and bridges are still standing today despite being hundreds or even thousands of years old. If the Devil actually built them, then he’s a very good architect. However, don’t think of hiring him for your next construction project because he definitely doesn’t have the required license and almost always requires a life as payment.

7 Creepy Real Life Stories Of Mysterious Creatures
From Lizard man to Mothaman Here are 7 Creepy Real Life Stories Of Mysterious Creatures 7. The Lizard People Somewhere in the underbelly of Los Angeles, The Lizard People are said to hiding in the shadows, in a lost city that was nearly wiped out by a meteor, over five thousand years ago. 6. Bigfoot No list of mystery creatures is complete without one of the most sought-after creatures in history: Bigfoot. Hundreds, even thousands, of stories of sightings of the hairy beast have surfaced over the years, but many have been debunked and few have ever been backed up with even the grainiest of photographic evidence. But one story stands out in particular, a second-hand retelling of a creature assumed to be Bigfoot, told by none other than President Theodore Roosevelt himself. In his 1892 book, The Wilderness Hunter, Roosevelt told the story of an encounter between an ape man and a man named Bauman. 5. The Loch Ness Monster Although Nessie is far from the only legend of a lake monster, it is by far the most famous. The earliest reports of the Loch Ness Monster date back over 1,500 years, but the key account that landed the legend in the mainstream occurred in April of 1933, when a man named John McKay and his wife spotted the creature in the loch. 4. Chupacabra Stories of the Chupacabra vary, but the general consensus is that the creature is about four to five feet tall, with short, powerful legs and red, glowing eyes. It is believed the Chupacabra preys on livestock and animals like cats, sheep, rabbits, dogs, chickens, dogs, hogs and more. 3. The Jersey Devil Perhaps New Jersey’s most famous celebrity, even more famous than Tony Soprano himself, The Jersey Devil has been haunting the state for over a century now. Believed to live deep within the Pine Barrens, The Jersey Devil is rarely reported to be seen these days, but for an entire week in 1909, throughout the state and Delaware Valley. 2. Mothman You might recognize Mothman from the 2002 Richard Gere film, The Mothman Prophecies. But this legend dates back well before Hollywood got their hands on it. The stories started in November 1966, and spanned through December 15, 1967. 1. Slenderman While Slenderman is undoubtedly a fictional character created by Eric Knudsen (Victor Surge) as an internet meme in 2009, it has actually manifested itself in reality, earning it the top spot on this list. You may have never heard of Slenderman until the character made headlines in 2014.

Top 10 Legendary Greek Mythological Creatures
Top 10 Legendary Greek Mythological Creatures 10. Typhon Typhon was the most deadly monster of Greek mythology. The last son of Gaia, fathered by Tartarus, he was known as the “Father of All Monsters”; his wife Echidna was likewise the “Mother of All Monsters.” He was described in pseudo-Apollodorus, Bibliotheke, as the largest and most fearsome of all creatures. His human upper half supposedly reached as high as the stars, and his hands reached east and west. Instead of a human head, a hundred dragon heads erupted from his neck and shoulders. 9. Lamia Lamia was apparently a beautiful queen of Libya who became a child-eating daemon. In the myth, she is a mistress of the god Zeus, causing Zeus’ jealous wife, Hera, to kill all of Lamia’s children (except for Scylla, who is herself cursed) and transform her into a monster that hunts and devours the children of others. Another version has Hera merely stealing away all of Lamia’s children and it being Lamia herself, losing her mind from grief and despair, who starts stealing and devouring others’ children out of envy, the repeated monstrosity of which transforms her into a monster on its own. 8. Echidna Half woman half snake, Echidna known as the “Mother of All Monsters” because most of the monsters in Greek mythology were her offspring. Hesiod’s Theogony described her as: “the goddess fierce Echidna who is half a nymph with glancing eyes and fair cheeks, and half again a huge snake, great and awful, with speckled skin, eating raw flesh beneath the secret parts of the holy earth. And there she has a cave deep down under a hollow rock far from the deathless gods and mortal men. There, then, did the gods appoint her a glorious house to dwell in: and she keeps guard in Arima beneath the earth, grim Echidna, a nymph who dies not nor grows old all her days.” 7. Sphinx A mythical creature with the body of a lion and a human head. In Greek tradition, it has the haunches of a lion, the wings of a great bird, and the face of a woman. She is mythicised as treacherous and merciless. Those who cannot answer her riddle suffer a fate typical in such mythological stories, as they are killed and eaten by this ravenous monster. 6. Griffin Regarded as king of the creatures, the Griffin, with the body, tail, and back legs of a lion; the head and wings of an eagle; and an eagle’s talons as its front feet. As the lion was traditionally considered the king of the beasts and the eagle was the king of the birds, the griffin was thought to be an especially powerful and majestic creature. In antiquity it was a symbol of divine power and a guardian of the divine. 5. Chimera The Chimera was a monstrous fire-breathing female creature of Lycia in Asia Minor who was composed of the parts of three animals; a lion, a snake and a goat. Usually depicted as a lion, with the head of a goat arising from its back, and a tail that ended in a snake’s head, the Chimera was one of the offspring of Typhon and Echidna and a sibling of such monsters as Cerberus and the Lernaean Hydra. 4. Gorgon A dreadful female creature in Greek mythology. Perhaps the most popular Gorgon is Medusa, generally described as having the face of a hideous human female with living venomous snakes in place of hair. She was the only mortal among the three sisters who’s gaze would turn anyone into stone. She was famously decapitated by Perseus who was armed with a mirror and scythe. 3. Centaur The centaur is a mythological creature with the head, arms, and torso of a human and the body and legs of a horse. They are best known for their fight with the Lapiths, which was caused by their attempt to carry off Hippodamia and the rest of the Lapith women on the day of Hippodamia’s marriage to Pirithous, king of the Lapithae. Perhaps one of the most popular centaurs in Greek mythology is Chiron. He stands in contrast to the typical depiction of centaurs being indulgent and violent drinkers with his intelligence and enviable medical skills. 2. Minotaur Described as “part man and part bull”. The Minotaur was a creature with the head of a bull on the body of a man. He dwelt at the center of the Cretan Labyrinth, which was an elaborate maze designed by the architect Daedalus and his son Icarus. The bull-man was eventually slain by the Athenian hero Theseus. 1. Siren The dangerous and beautiful creatures in Greek mythology. They were often portrayed as femme fatales who lured nearby sailors with their enchanting voices to shipwreck on the rocky coast of their island. They were considered the daughters of the river god Achelous. Roman writers linked the Sirens more closely to the sea, as daughters of Phorcys. Sirens are found in many Greek stories, particularly in Homer’s Odyssey. Their number is variously reported as between two and five.
