Serenity - A Unique Love Story CHAPTER - 3

“They were from two different worlds. Two entirely different people. But upon their coming together, they created- they found- their own path and together they had their own world and in their own world, they were the same. Everyone else outside of it- everyone else was over there. Away. And they together- they together were here. They were right here. They were the same.” 

"And she ran into the night. Darkness enclosing her figure as she drifted further away. What have I done? There was a sharp pain in my chest. Never had I felt such a pain until tonight. I have to find her." - Cole Haven

I guess you all enjoyed the first two chapters of "Serenity." Here is the third chapter written by Lori McDermett, a writer, a pianist, a singer, and a girl with a lot of other god gifted talents.



"An ice cream shop? Serenity I have been to one of these before." First thing on the get Cole to live list was an ice cream shop.

"But have you had a EXTREME CHOCOLATE SURPRISE?!?" As she speaks, she flails her arms around as is her life depended on it.

"I cannot say I have." Her jaw drops and she turns away briskly.

"AUNT HELLEN!!! EMERGENCY!" She screams as some older lady comes out.

"What's the emergency dear? Is everyone alright?" The lady by the name Hellen says. I look at Serenity waiting for her explanation as does Hellen.

"Oh by the way aunt Hellen this is my new friend Cole. Cole this is my aunt Hellen." Her aunt nods at me and offers a warm smile which I return.

"It's nice to meet you Cole. Now Ren, honey what was your big emergency exactly?" Ren? Must be a family nickname of some sort. Serenity's aunt awaits for her answer once again.

"Well you see my friend Cole here has never had one of your EXTREME CHOCOLATE SURPRISES!" Her aunt gapes at me.

"Well we can have that now, can we? I'll bring you guys out one right away." She scurries to the back to make up this concoction. I feel something warm against my hand and look down to see Serenity has taken my hand dragging me to a table. No more than two minutes later her aunt comes out with a giant bowl of ice cream. How on earth are we ever going to finish that!?

"Dig in kids!" Her aunt says while handling us each a spoon. Serenity starts eating as soon as it hits the table. I stare at the bowl overwhelmed about not knowing where to begin. Serenity must have sensed my hesitation because she starts stirring it all together to make one giant flavor instead of a bunch of flavors scattered.

"This way you don't have to chose" she says with a mouthful of ice cream. I laugh at her carelessness, she urges me to take a bite and I do. And man I am glad I did. This is the best thing I have ever tasted!!! I moan in appreciation. She chuckles knowingly.

"Now either you are on the verge of an orgasm or you're enjoying that ice cream a little too much." We look at each other for a second, then crack up laughing. Twenty minutes later we finish up and I head to pay. Her aunt just pushes my money back.

"It's on me. Now go on kids. It's getting late and you have school tomorrow." Serenity hugs her aunt as she whisper something back and forth, giggling every now and then.

"BYE, AUNT HELLEN!!!" She randomnly screams and runs out the door. I offer my hand to bid my farewell but she grabs me and pulls me in a hug. tears are lightly slipping down her face as she releases.

"Thank you Cole." And she leaves it at that. I walk out to catch up with that little spirit fire to see Shawn cornering her. I walk towards them trying to figure out what's going on. I finally arrive at the scene and he is closing the space around her.

"Hello Shawn. What is it you want on this fine and now horrible evening?"

"Oh Serenity and I were just talking. Right babe?" He wraps his arm around her tightly making her uncomfortable.

"Get off me Shawn." she struggles to push him off.

"Shawn she said get off. So get the hell out of here." My breathing picked up as my anger grew inside me. I clenched my fist.

"And who's going to make me?" He smirked and pushed Serenity against the wall and kissed her forcibly. Anger reached it's boiling point, I couldn't hold it on. I was about to pull him off when all of a sudden he is on the ground with Serenity on top, beating him to a pulp. I couldn't believe my eyes. Seeing she had the power in her to kill him, I grabbed her arm gently and pulled her away from that bloody bastard.

"Now I suggest you leave before she could actually do some permanent damage not only to your face but ego."

He stands up, runs off to his car and speeds away. I turn back to Serenity and she's crying. Her delicate hands holding her usually beaming face, pouring all her fears and frustration into them. I tilt her chin to look at me and just stare into her orbs. Even with mascara running down her cheeks still she looks better than anyone on the planet. We stare at each other for a while with her hands in mine. Her eyes are desperate begging for help, but looks frightened to do so. I lift her slowly feeling the same little shocks of energy as I did earlier. Never once my gaze leaving hers. Then all of a sudden like as if a magnet pulled us towards each other, we were leaning in. And just like that our lips met. I was slipping into a trance of peace and happiness. I felt needed and wanted. Her lips dancing across mine urgently. I responded back to her with the same amount of urgency. My insides were bursting with joy and excitement. If this is what they call love, count me in. We slowed down a bit considering we actually have to breathe to survive but the slower we got the more pleasure consumed me. My body was under her spell and I loved every minute of it. Her lips fit perfectly on mine. My hands roamed her feeble body hoping to be closer. Then it came to a stop as we both gasped for air, still holding eye contact , except now her look changed as she was grateful and happy once again. The lightness in her eyes was enough happiness for me for a lifetime. Then the thought hit me. I can't go another day without her. My life wouldn't mean anything without her.

Wait what am I thinking? I just met this girl and already I'm thinking of my life without her. So, I did the only stupid thing I could think of.

"I'm sorry."

And she ran into the night. Darkness enclosing her figure as she drifted further away. What have I done? There was a sharp pain in my chest. Never had I felt such a pain until tonight. I have to find her.

“Time. Time has a way of standing still during the moments that define one’s life.
The first kiss, the birth of one’s first child, a paralyzing car accident, hearing of the death of a parent, the last kiss.”

Top 5 Most Weird World Records

“We all die. The goal isn't to live forever, the goal is to create something that will.”

What is the greatest thing you can do for the world? I have my own opinions and before you come up with a list of things let me ask you another simple question. What is the greatest personal achievement for a person? Simple, we all want to be remembered after we die and so there is no other greater achievement for a person more than getting himself immortalised. We still remember hundreds of people who lived thousands of years ago for their greatest achievements. So, by immortalising ourselves we are not only achieving the greatest goal in our lives but we are also doing the greatest thing we can do for this world. So, what are the different ways to immortalise yourself? History will tell us that people have tried everything under the sun to get themselves remembered forever. Making and breaking world records is one among them. World records definitely inspire us to strive harder but sometimes they provoke people to come up with weird and bizarre ideas. There are some world records which are truly weird and after reading this article you might even think that these people are insane but the bottom line is, people will remember a world record holder forever no matter how weird the feat is. Warning: Some videos in this article are gross.

1. Most Maggots Moved by the Mouth in One Hour

Maggots are the most disgusting, slimy, and creepy creature found in decaying organic matter. The mere sight of maggots can evoke fits of coughing and vomiting in some people. Charlie Bell, a former steel worker from UK created a world record on April 7, 2009. This record is considered as one of the most grossest world records. Why? Because he moved 17 kg of maggots by his mouth in one hour. He carried two square foot of live maggots in one hour from one container to another using only his mouth. He broke the previous world record of 15 kg but it is obvious that he might have swallowed at least a kg of maggots while performing this feat. Before attempting this disgusting record, he practised at his home using boiled rice. After breaking the record, he confessed that, "It was like putting my head down a filthy public toilet."

2. Most Feet And Armpits Sniffed

“A good fragrance is really a powerful cocktail of memories and emotion.” I think most of you will agree with this quote. So, what memories and emotions comes to your mind when you come across a stinking sock? We all are familiar with this stinking feeling but do you know that sniffing stinking feet and armpits can immortalise you in the Guinness book of world records. How? Let me tell you. At present, Madeline Albrecht of Cincinnati, Ohio holds the world record for most feet and armpits sniffed. She achieved this record by sniffing approximately 5,600 feet and an indeterminate number of armpits. Do you want to know how she achieved this? She didn't went from home to home asking people to let her sniff their stinking feet and armpits. If you have any thoughts about breaking this record then you should consider this possibility but Madeline created this record by just doing her job. What job? She was employed at the Hill Top Research Laboratories, a testing lab for products by Dr. Scholl. Her job was to sniff feet and armpits which she did for a stinking 15 years.

3. Loudest Burp - Female

I came across a funny quote while surfing the net, it goes on like this, "Women do not snore, burp, sweat or pass gas. Therefore, they must bitch or they will blow up!" I don't know how accurate this quote is but I think as far as burping is concerned, most of the women avoid it in public because it is usually considered an unladylike behaviour but on 16 February 2008, Jodie Parks from USA proved that women can also burp like a cow. This pretty and demure looking American housewife created a word record in burping on the set of Lo show dei record, in Madrid, Spain, in 2008 where she took the record at 104.75 decibels from 8 feet 2 inches away. Her loudest recorded burp was 107.7 and after six burps, her average was calculated at 104.75. Jodie is also known as "Queen of Burps." So, what do you think "burp like a lady" actually means?

4. Farthest Milk squirting Distance

Before getting into the details, let me get one thing clear. Today, the term "squirting" is often associated with women but this record has nothing to do with it. Here, squirting simply means to eject liquid forcibly in a thin stream from a narrow opening or orifice. The furthest milk squirting distance record was created by a Turkish man named Mehmet Yilmaz, who's eyes don't water like normal people but they milk. Confused? In September 2004, he created this world record by sucking milk through his nostrils and squirting it across the table through his left eye at a distance of 9.2 feet. I know weird world records like this is enough to bring tears to your eyes but as far as it is tears, there is nothing to worry.

5. Most Cow Brains Eaten

"Food fighters in Japan think of themselves as athletes. They have a higher recognition of the game and are constantly thinking about records. I probably won't continue for long because it puts pressure on the body. But I am at the age where I can perform my best."

Do you know to whom does this famous quote belongs to? Have you ever heard about Takeru Kobayashi? He is a skinny 35-year-old guy from Japan who is currently ranking third in the world for competitive eating. He made his grand entry into the world of competitive eating in 2001 when he won his first Nathan's Annual Hot Dog Eating Contest. Today he holds several records, including four Guinness Records, for eating hot dogs, meatballs, Twinkies, hamburgers, and pasta. Among all these records, his most weird and impressive world record is for eating more cow brains than any other person ever. He achieved this feat by consuming 17.7 pounds of cow brains in just 15 minutes.

Serenity - A Unique Love Story CHAPTER - 2

“As the earth dies your spirit will bloom; as the world fades your soul will rise and glisten. Amongst the dehydrated crevices of a desert earth you will stumble upon your diamonds; in between the dry skulls and cracked bones you will find your sapphires.”

"Why are you so bitter? You look a thousand years old when really you're what, 17? What's caused this? You should be enjoying all the things like the sky or the way the birds chirp every morning. Some people even didn't wake up today. Do you realise what they would give just to see the sunset one more time?" - Serenity Banks

I'm sure that you all enjoyed the first chapter of "Serenity". You are now familiar with the characters of this unique love story and know about their social life and school life but their personal life is still an enigma for you. I know you all want to know why they are behaving like this and what is going on through their minds. “Every man has his secret sorrows which the world knows not; and often times we call a man cold when he is only sad.” As the story progresses, you will come to know about their pasts and you might even be able to make a wild guess about their futures. So, here I present to you the second chapter of Serenity written by Lori McDermett, an angel.



After a two hour lecture from my uncle about how I can't be late today, I finally decided to give in and just be on time. So here I'm at 7:55 waiting on Saint Serenity. I see uncle Don walking with some girl towards me, discussing the papers in her hand. As they get closer I notice how angelic she looks. She looks so calm and carefree. I'm soon forced back into reality when I see her waving in my face.

"Oh, hey I'm Cole. Cole Haven, I will show you around but if you end up on someones hit list today, don't blame me." She does the unthinkable then. She laughs and pulls me into a hug. I NEVER do physical contact. EVER. But for some reason this feels nice. She pulls away and smiles.

"So to English then?"

"Is that your first class?"

"Yup, I have the same schedule, so it would be easier for you." I turned and motioned her to follow. She is soon on my heels asking fifty questions a second.

"Where's all the lockers? Is that the only bathroom? What's for lunch today? Are we close to English yet? Why aren't you talking?"

I sigh. "Because I'm thinking."

She cocks her eyebrow. "What are you thinking about?"

That made me stop. What was I thinking about? I always have thoughts but why can't I remember? Was I really listening? No that can't be, I would have to care to listen. I shook my head and walked into the English room.

"This is the English room. Mrs. Pew is our teacher and you can sit anywhere you'd like to." I then make my way to my regular seat pulling out my spiral when I felt a presence join me. It's her.

"Now what Serenity?"

"You said anywhere. So, I chose the spot next to you." She said so innocently. But she doesn't understand I like being alone with nobody bothering me. It's easy that way. I can get things done faster and more sufficiently. She's now staring at me waiting for a response. When she gets none, she reaches in her bag and pulls out what she needs and some sanitiser. I watch curiously as she squeezes some onto her hand and then offers some to me. I shake my head and she just shrugs and puts it away. I'm just about to question this when in walks the cow herself.

"Good morning class. Today we have a new student. Her name is Serenity Banks. I trust you to treat her as an equal. And it's nice of you to actually be on time Mr. Haven."

"You know how much I love seeing your glowing self every morning." I reply cheekily. She walks to her desk and pulls out a clipboard and begins her lesson. I tune her out until I hear Serenity squeal. I look at her as if saying what the hell. She giggles and explains.

"Weren't you listening? We are all assigned to learn a scene from a Shakespeare sonnet and perform with the person sitting next to us. She just assigned us Romeo and Juliet! Isn't that great!?!" Sunshine is practically spitting out her every word. Is she actually this excited over a scene from Romeo and Juliet? I just grunt in response.

"Oh, cheer up this is great!!! I love Rome and Juliet. the fact they were willing to die just to be together is just true passion." Her eyes twinkling as she speaks. Her voice smooth and creamy. Wait, I didn't just say that. Ugh, I'm turning into a crazy girl by hanging around this chick. I've got to get out of here. I stand up as soon as the bell rings and try to make my escape.

"Cole, wait up." She yells as she jogs over earning herself a few glares but she just smiles back at them as if not noticing their menacing stares.

"So, what did you do to make them all hate you so much?" She questions. "It's not every day you see such anger pouring out of the aura."

I look at her straight in the eyes. "Some things are better left unknown." And then I head to robotics, when Shawn decides to show up and attempt his slice at me.

"Hello Cole, aren't you going to introduce me to your new friend?" He asks looking her up and down. It's as if he is removing all her clothes. I look at her to see if she realises it but of course she only has that bright happy gaze of joy on her face.

I roll my eyes at him.

"For starters I would never do such a horrible thing to her, for I know the consequences of knowing you. And secondly she is not my friend. She is more than capable of answering herself." He laughs at this and slaps my shoulder.

"Oh that's our Cole, alright. I'm Shawn. And you're?"

"Serenity. Serenity Banks. You wouldn't happen to be Shawn Harp. Would you?" Something new was written across her face. Like a hint of anger. But she masks it well to where most people would fall for this.

"Yes, I'm." He gives her a cocky smile. So you've heard of me?"

She smiles,"Oh, well in that case..." She grabs some random kids drink and dumps it on him. "I prefer it if you would stay the hell away from me." And she grabbed my hand, leaving me dumbstruck and pulled me to our next class.

"LUNCH OH HOW I'VE MISSED YOU!" I scream as I dive into my nachos and pudding. Serenity laughs at this. I look up to everyone staring at her, so I clear my throat.

"Everyone, this is Serenity. She just moved here so stop staring at her as if she's a caged animal." I snap. They all look away mumbling their apologies to her. Then Liz is the first to speak.

"Hi, I'm Liz, I didn't mean to weird you out but it's just that no one ever sits with us." Everyone nods their heads in agreement. But being the strange person she is turning out to be, she smiles brightly at all of them.

"Well, it's their loss now. Isn't it? So what's the rest of your names?"

"I'm Alice and I like you. I can tell there is something special about you." And they shake hands.

"I'm Zane and I'm extremely busy at the moment. About to have another...BREAKTHROUGH! Oh schools security is weak." She giggles and looks towards Max and he blushes.

"I'm Max. And I'm also very sorry for staring. It's just beautiful people like you never come around. You have the brightest eyes I've ever seen. Just wow." He looks at her and awe and I glare at him sending him the message to back off.

"Thank you Max. It's lovely to meet all of you." Now everyone is back to eating and it's silent other than the sound of Serenity's humming. I will never understand this one...

Finally the day is over. I'm done with my time with the princess of happiness. I start walking my way towards home when I see a shadow appear next to me. And do you know, it's Serenity.

"What do you want?" I ask.

"Well, that's no way to treat your neighbour now, is it?" She smirks at me. My jaw drops. She lives next door? No. No way is that possible. So I'm stuck with her at school and then at home. Wait, how does she know where I live? Then as if she's reading my mind, she states,

"I saw you while unpacking yesterday. You were in your own little world, not caring about what's going on around you." Well now that I think about it, I was in a rush to get away from hell on earth. I was probably consumed in thoughts.

"Oh..." Was all I said. we finally reach the front of our two houses and she just looks at them.

"Do you live alone?" My body froze instantly. I haven't spoke about my family since it all happened. So I took the cheap way out on this and kept it vague.

"No." Simple, yet it gets the message across quite clearly. She looks as if she wants to press it but decides against it. And as if flash of a bright idea struck her, she runs inside. I then start making my way towards the door when I hear her shout at me. I turn and she's standing next to me.

"You want to go some place?" And in that moment something changed between us. Maybe for the good, Maybe for the worst. So, I branch out on a limb and go with my gut for the first time.


"SLOW DOWN!!! I'm not running my way up this hill no matter how hard you drag me." I'm exhausted and she pushing my limits isn't exactly what I call fun. Let me fill you in. After I agreed to go somewhere, she decided we can start an adventure. So far we have ran all over the town, had some coffee, chased birds, outran some dogs and now she is dragging me up a hill so we can watch the sunset over the horizon.

"We are going to miss it if you don't pick up the pace! Now move your legs faster and it will be over with quicker." I pick up my pace a bit and she's right, we made it there just in the nick of time.

"Wow. This is beautiful." She says staring up at the sky with wonder and amazement.

"Ya...I guess so..." I don't know what's so great about the sky. It's Just a bunch of gases. She looks offended by this.

"Why are you so bitter? You look a thousand years old when really you're what, 17? What's caused this? You should be enjoying all the things like the sky or the way the birds chirp every morning. Some people even didn't wake up today. Do you realise what they would give just to see the sunset one more time?" She rambles on. She's right. I should lighten up.

"And what do you suggest?" I yell throwing my hands up. She smiles her million dollar smile and grabs my hand, sending bolts of electricity through me.

"I have an idea..." And we are off again, headed where ever the wind takes us. Or in my case, wherever Serenity takes us.

Please post your valuable comments and suggestions about this unique love story.

Serenity - A Unique Love Story

"There comes a point in your life when you realise who matters, who never did, who won't anymore, and who always will. So don't worry about the people from your past, there is a reason they didn't make it to your future."

This is the quote which I always feel connected to. We all know that life is not fair and it is really unfair to some people like me. What is the use in crying over spilled milk and I have learnt that when life gives you lemons, don't look here and there. No one will come forward to take your lemons and if you are not willing to do anything with your lemons apart from collecting more lemons, then you will hit bottom before you even realise it. So, I just follow the simple rule, "When life gives you lemons make lemonade".

I really hate my life. I can't even blame myself for my current situation. Most of the people are pushed into darkness mainly because of the choices they had made. I didn't made any wrong choices in the past but still I got ambushed by Karma.

A week ago, when I was drowning in darkness, I met an angel named Lori McDermett. She is really an angel, she changed my perception towards life. She is very young but she is very matured for her age. She loves music and her ambition in life is to become a music composer one day. She loves reading books especially biographies. She has never before written a story in her life but today she wrote a story for me. After reading the story, I realised that this angel has some real writing skills. The way she expresses a situation, the use of similes and metaphors, and the emotions, all are very strong in her writing. In this article, I'm going to share the first chapter written by this angel, Lori McDermett.



I've waited for this moment since I ever laid eyes on Shawn Harp, but now that it's here, I can't go through with it. This isn't what Serenity would want. Is it? No. She would want me to move on and let it go because "things happen".

"Please...please don't...I'm really sorry man all this happened. I didn't mean any harm I swear. I didn't kill Seren...AHHHHHH"

I couldn't let him finish that sentence because I know he poisoned the only good thing that's ever happened to me. Now she's gone. A lost soul floating around, waiting on anything to sweep her in the right direction. The time is now or never...

Nine Months Before

!BRINNNNNGGGGG! I have to cover my ears or else I swear they are going to explode. Thanks to that awful reminder that this isn't a dream, that I'm in fact still in this nightmare. Let me explain my situation a bit. My name is Cole Haven, I hate all the fake bimbos and douches who attend this jail or as most call it school. You see I'm different, I know this but the problem is everyone here just doesn't understand the reality of life. All they care about is who's going with who to prom or who just knocked up who this year. But in my honest opinion, who gives a shit? This is high school. You know the thing that magically ends in four agonising years. Anyways, I've been "bullied" ever since my second grade due to my essay over transgenders and their confusion. No one really understood, needless to say they thought I was a freak of nature. So, I have no friends, no one cares, and a whole bunch of people eating at my back. I just love life!

"Mr. Haven, you are late again". My English teacher Mrs. Pew so generously points out.

"And you're over weight. What's your point mam?" Well if she is going to state the obvious, so am I. She's fuming, like she is trying to expand herself more than ever before but it's not possible. When I say fat, I'm not using it just for fun because obesity isn't something to be taken light.

"PRINCIPLE'S OFFICE NOW!!" I can't help it. I love watching the reactions of others. I salute her in goodbye promising to be back tomorrow. The Principle's office is now my home away from home. Don is one of the only people who understands my advanced thinking and humour here at Killjoy school. Yes, I know what you are thinking. I'm on a first-name basis with the principle, but it's because I've known him all my life, he is my uncle. All of a sudden, I'm being pulled out of my world of thoughts and slammed into a wall. Then I see him. Shawn Harp. The one person who has broken all social rules to ensure that my life remains a living hell. But hey, at least he is consistent.

"Look what we have here. What is a shit face like you roaming the halls for?"

"I don't know what are YOU doing"? I snickered a bit, he was asking for that one. He glared at me and shoved me against the wall.

"You treat me with respect, got it?"

"Whatever..." I shoved him off me and kept walking, mumbling about how I can't wait to leave this jail. I was plotting my revenge, when I run into the famous Macy Slade. The rich snotty, prep girl who always has coffee in her hand. How she keeps it perfectly full at all times is beyond my head. So, yes the coffee is now all over her and yada yada...

"You...You...YOU'RE GOING TO PAY FOR THIS!! Why don't you ever watch where you're going".

"Aw did someone's dad cut of their credit card?", as weak as I may sound, I know everyone's weaknesses. Why? Because they are so fake. It's easy.

"When Shawn hears about this..." She kept going on and on but I've learnt to tune it out. So, here's the thing, Macy Slade is a first class slut and blonde. She and Shawn have been on and off, mainly using each other to climb the social ladder.

"HELLO?!!! Are you even listening? Uhg I swear you're stupid". She stomps off in her heels and whips her high ponytail barely missing my face as she turns. By now I've reached my uncle's office. I smile at his secretary, Jo-Anne, and head on as she nods me in.

"HONEY I'M HOME", I yell as I plop myself in a chair. He looks up from his computer looking tired and stressed. He worries too much, no matter how big or small the problem is, he still worries.

"What do I owe the pleasure of the company of my favourite nephew?"

"Well I was sent here because the dumb cow of an English teacher like to point out the obvious". My uncle sighs at this but makes no remark. He just looks down and continues typing and I start filling his files that he always leaves out. If there's is one thing I can't stand, it's a messy work place. How can people sit around in filth and accomplish anything? Then he looks up and speaks.

"We have a new student coming. Her name is Serenity Banks. She was the head of her class at her school before but is now in second..."

"Because I'm first." I interrupt.

"Well yes...Anyways she will be needing someone to to show her around tomorrow and since I have to punish you, this will have to do for now".

How is that a punishment you deserve? I HATE PEOPLE! They are all the same.

"Give me detention for a week, a month, LOCK ME IN DETENTION, JUST DON'T MAKE ME SHOW HER AROUND".

"My decision is final". He says with that voice, that just says, drop it you're not going to win this. Well, this is just another great person to add to the list that want me dead and gone. It's only one day, right? I can do this.

Lunch finally rolls around and man I can't explain how much I love lunch. It's a break in the middle of the day, just to eat. Believe it or not, I sit with actual people. It's just a group of the outcast. There's Zane Colder who can hack anything. Least to say, he's a computer genius. Then there is Liz Eclarety, she is leaning towards the dark side if I say so myself. Her hobbies include art. That's it. Next you have Alice Dayle who is just always there...Then there is Max Jawslen who is obsessed with lights. Don't ask. And lastly there's me. My only dream and goal in life is become an architect. Building the impossible is my goal. So there you have it ladies and gentleman, the outcast.

I'm now happily enjoying my sandwich when the devil and his blonde minion show up.

"Macy said you spilled her coffee all over her".

"Now, Now lets not get rash. I didn't spill her coffee intentionally on her. We both weren't looking and crashed into one another. Simple as that. Now if you excuse me, I have better things to be done". I pick up my food and leave the cafeteria with gazes burning the back of my head. Will this day just end!?

I finally make it home after the day in hell. I grab some food and head upstairs to do some research on the Serenity chick. Who names their kid Serenity? I pull out my keyboard and type her name in the search and up pops tons of things about winning a science convention at NASA or helping rebuild ecosystems. Oh God why me?!? She's a saint. Helping children's shelters, volunteering at old folks home. Does she want to be successful in life? Tomorrow is going to be like trying to manage a wildfire in a dried out forest.
To Be Continued...

Top 5 Most Weird Medical Syndromes

A syndrome can simply be defined as a group of symptoms that together are indicative of a particular disease or disorder. Common cold and cough are the most common medical conditions we are familiar with but still there exists thousands of mundane to highly unusual medical disorders. So, which is the most dangerous well-known syndrome? Yes, it is Acquired Immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). We are aware of this syndrome because it is the most fatal medical condition but do you know about any other rare and weird medical syndromes. I think some of you are familiar with human werewolf syndrome and vampire syndrome but in this article I'm going to explain about some odd diseases you have never heard of. These rare disorders are either biological or psychological or cultural in nature. While reading this for the first time, you may feel that these weird conditions are actually medical myths but no, they are as real as you and me. As a matter of fact, these weird conditions are very rare but still some unlucky people in this world suffer from these bizarre syndromes.

1. Sexsomnia Disorder

This weird and rare disorder is also known as "sleep sex". I always thought sleepwalking was the most weird medical condition but sexsomnia not only changed my perception but it also blew my mind. Why? Because a person suffering from this sleep disorder engages in sex or sexual acts while completely asleep. In short, this disorder compels a person to have sex while sleeping. This can be alone or with a partner and depending on this, the sexual acts may vary from fondling and masturbation to heterosexual and homosexual intercourse. In some rare cases, sexsomnia has been alleged as the cause of sexual assault and even rape. This disorder was officially identified in 2003 and since then it has been used as a defence against some alleged rape cases. Why? Because a sexsomniac doesn't remember the acts he had performed while he was asleep.

2. Genital Retraction Syndrome

Many surveys have proved that a majority of men are confused about the length of their manhood. I think, there is no moment more anxiety-inducing in a young man’s life than the first time he measures his manhood. I think most of the men will agree with me. So, how this is connected to genital retraction syndrome (GRS)? When the confusion about the size of genitals turns into a mental disorder, then it is assumed that the person is suffering from GRS. Let me explain it more clearly. It is a culture specific syndrome. People suffering from this syndrome believe that their external genitals are shrinking or slowly disappearing into their bodies. If the sufferer is a male then he believes that his penis is shrinking and if it is a female then she believes that her nipples are shrinking. This genital-shrinkage anxiety is mostly common in Asia and Africa, so it also known as "Penis panics" in these areas. In extreme cases, this syndrome can cause physical injury. How? This syndrome can compel a man to perform manual penile traction by using some clamping devices and an anxious female sufferer may pull her nipples or even insert iron pins into her nipples. Scientifically nothing has been proved to support this belief but some people attribute this condition to witchcraft and superstition.

3. Alice In Wonderland Syndrome

AIWS is also known as "Todd's syndrome" or "lilliputian hallucinations". So you will be thinking how "Alice in Wonderland" and "Gulliver's travels" are connected? If you had read these books then you will know that one thing is common between them, yes, the theme used in both of these books are similar. So, a person suffering from this syndrome literally lives in a world filled with wonder and Lilliputians. How? This is a disorienting neurological condition which affects human perception. A person with AIWS sees a object as either much smaller or larger than it is. Alteration of body image as well as alteration of visual perception occurs in this weird disorder. The symptoms of AIWS are fairly common in childhood but still some people carry it to their mid 30's. AIWS occurs when abnormal amounts of blood is pumped into the brain due to some abnormal electrical activity. This more than necessary blood supply to the brain affects the visual perception of a person. This condition is often associated with migraines and hallucinogenic drugs.

4. Walking Corpse Syndrome

Scientifically this syndrome is known as "Cotard's syndrome". If you are fan of Zombies then this syndrome will definitely surprise you. Why? Because this syndrome literally turns a person into a zombie. How? People suffering from this syndrome have the delusional belief that they are dead, decaying, or have lost their blood or internal organs. Weird delusion, isn't it? Apart from all these delusions, some sufferers also believe that they are immortal. A person passes through three distinct stages before becoming a chronic Zombie. In the first two stages, a person exhibits psychotic depression and withdraws himself from others. In the final stage, the person experiences severe hallucinations and chronic depression. This syndrome is associated with brain damage, schizophrenia, or other mental illness.

5. Persistent Sexual Arousal Syndrome

PSAS is also known as "Restless Genital Syndrome". What is the most interesting part of a sexual act? Yes, defintely the orgasm. Female orgasm is a mysterious topic and this syndrome makes this topic a real enigma. How? This syndrome causes spontaneous, persistent, and uncontrollable genital arousal in women. The weird fact is that these orgasms occur without any sexual desire. The physical arousal caused by this syndrome can persist for weeks at a time. It means that, a woman suffering from this syndrome will experience 200 plus orgasms each and every day. That is more than any woman can ask for. The sufferer has no control over these orgasms and it can be really embarrassing if the orgasms occur in public places, or in meetings, or even when the sufferer is having a dinner with her parents. Orgasms might provide a temporary relief but within a few hours, the sufferer is again bombarded with an onslaught of orgasms. The best and the worst thing about this syndrome is that there is no known effective cure.

Top 5 Most Weird Medieval Deaths

What is the greatest universal ultimate truth? Yes the truth is that death is an unavoidable calamity. Woody Allen had said, “I'm not afraid of death; I just don't want to be there when it happens.” It is not only him but each and everyone of us also have the same opinion about death. What do people wish for the most? Yes, people wish for money, health, love, and success but most importantly we wish to die in a peaceful manner. Many people will not admit it openly but we all know that it is the truth. Are you a fan of the "Final Destination" franchise? If yes, then you will know that death is not only inevitable but it is also damn cruel. No one wants to be a part of real life Final Destination. Death not only ends life but strange and weird deaths can also cause severe embarrassment. For example, imagine this scenario, a soldier returns from the war to his hometown and dies from a falling coconut that hit him on his head. The soldier not only suffered a weird death but death also stole the glory of a soldier from him. We know that medieval period was famous for Wars and violence but do you know that this period is also well-known for some strange and weird deaths.

1. Edward II of England

Edward II is regarded as the most incompetent ruler of England. Why? Because his rule was marked by political squabbling and a series of military defeats. If this wasn't enough to turn his reign disastrous, he is also rumoured to have been bisexual. Isabella of France was his queen and due to some political as well as personal reasons she left Edward II in 1325 and went back to France. There she joined hands with her lover Roger Mortimer and invaded England in 1326. Edward II was defeated in the battle and was captured by his own queen and her lover. Immediately after his abdication in January 1327, Edward II was first imprisoned at Kenilworth Castle. He was subjected to a series of torments which included being starved and thrown into a pit full of rotting corpses. They tried to kill him indirectly with all these horrible methods but as Edward was a strong man, he survived it and in April, he was transferred to Berkeley Castle, Gloucestershire. After surviving many more horrible treatments in this castle, he was finally murdered on 21 September 1327. How? It is rumoured that on this unfortunate day an assassin of Isabella and Mortimer entered his cell and held him down and inserted a red-hot iron poker into his rectum through a drenching horn. It is believed that the agonising screams of Edward was heard for miles around. Edward was murdered in such a horrible manner because his enemies wanted the world to believe that he had died of natural causes.

2. Sigurd Eysteinsson

Sigurd Eysteinsson who is also popularly known as "Sigurd the Mighty" was the second Viking Earl of Orkney. He died in a bizarre manner solely because of his stupidity. It is more appropriate to say that he was killed by a dead man. How? According to the Orkneyinga Saga, Sigurd challenged his enemy Máel Brigte to a 40-man-a-side battle. I don't know why the historians call Sigurd a mighty warrior but for me he was a coward. Why? Because in this battle against Máel Brigte, he treacherously brought 80 men instead of 40. Máel knew that he had been betrayed and fought valiantly but ultimately he was slayed and beheaded by Sigurd the mighty. He strapped the head of Máel to his saddle as a trophy and embarked upon his journey back to his homelands. Everything was fine for this mighty warrior but as the journey progressed, Máel Brigte's buck-tooth scratched his leg and broke the skin. At this point, as Sigurd was basking in his glory, he either didn't observed it or didn't took it seriously but after a few days the wound became infected and the mighty warrior died. As, Máel was indirectly responsible for this bizarre death, he is also known as Máel Brigte the Bucktoothed.

3. Caliph Al-Musta’sim

Al-Musta'sim Billah was the last Abbasid Caliph in Baghdad. In 1242, he became the ruler of Abbasid domain after the death of his father. The greatest resistance to his power came when the Mongol forces led by Hulagu Khan invaded Abbasid domain in 1258. Caliph Al-Musta’sim not only failed to raise an army but he also failed to negotiate with Hulagu. This failure cost him dearly as Baghdad was sacked by the Mongols and he was captured alive. The mongols were a superstitious people and believed that spilling royal blood would bring bad luck. Do you remember Game of Thrones, season 1, Khal Drogo killing Viserys without spilling any blood by pouring molten gold over Viserys head? If you think bloodless murder can't be performed in any other manner then you are wrong. Why? Because Hulagu killed Caliph by rolling him in a rug and trampling him to death with his horses. Some of his sons were also killed in this brutal bloodless manner. I think Viserys and Caliph are not familiar with each other but one thing is definitely common between them, they both not only died in weird manner but they also experienced the terrible agony associated with a bloodless murder.

4. Martin of Aragon

Martin of Aragon is also known as "Martin the Elder" was the king of Aragon from 1396 to 1410. Have you ever heard about "death from laughter"? No, then have you heard about "laughter is the best medicine"? Yes, everyone knows about this but do you know that sometimes too much laughter can turn lethal. There are many historical deaths attributed to laughter. You can check them out later but before that do you want to know how Martin of Aragon died? Martin was a die hard foodie and he had the habit of gorging on an entire goose which often resulted in indigestion. In 1410, when Martin was dining in his castle in Barcelona, his favourite Jester Borra came. Martin asked the jester where he had been, to which the Jester replied, "Out of the next vineyard, where I saw a young deer hanging by his tail from a tree, as if someone had so punished him for stealing figs." This answer was so hilarious to the king that he burst into an uncontrollable fit of laughter. The king laughed so hard that something inside him literally burst and he died. So, it was concluded that Martin had died from a lethal combination of indigestion and uncontrollable laughing. Do you find it funny? Go on laugh your way to death.

5. Béla I of Hungary

He was also known as Béla I the Champion or the Bison because of his brute strength. He was the King of Hungary from 1060 but he ruled for only a brief period of three years. Why? Because he died in a bizarre accident. How? Béla's father was a cousin of the First King of Hungary. So, after his father's death, he was forced to leave the country. During exile, he gained the title of "the champion" and came back to Hungary in 1060 and defeated King Andrew I to become the new king. Béla became the new king but with that he also made several political enemies. In 1063, while Béla was sitting on his wooden throne, it suddenly collapsed and he died. Weird, bizarre, and tragic death for a champion. Many historians believe that this wasn't an freak accident but was a cleverly executed assassination.

Top 5 Most Weird And Unusual Ancient Jobs

Today a person can choose from a wide range of jobs but in ancient times as the technology wasn't much advanced, only few jobs were available and people were recruited to these few jobs solely on the basis of their talent. We all are familiar with most of the ancient jobs related with military, religion, farming, politics, and arts but apart from these white collar jobs, certain bizarre and weird jobs also existed during the classical period of the Greeks and the Romans. People who were not talented enough to qualify for these white collar jobs were forced to do certain weird and repulsive jobs. Unlike today, these unlucky people were not offered with a choice, the rule was simple, either accept the weird job or die of starvation. Do you hate your current job? I can't help you to get a new job of your choice but this article will definitely change your attitude towards your current job. After reading about these weird ancient jobs, you will not only fall in love with your current job but you will also thank your stars that you were not born when these jobs existed.

1. Armpit Plucker

The title says it all but still I feel obliged to explain this weird job in detail. What do you hate most about your body? We hate unwanted hair on weird places in our body, especially women. The ancient people also had this same thinking about hairs but the problem was that they didn't had razors or any other device to help them to get rid of unwanted hair. We know that the ancient Romans were athletic people and they used to display their well toned naked bodies in public. During the 2nd AD in Rome, the ancient Romans realised the hard truth that their hairs on the armpits is a hindrance not only to their public display of beauty but the unpleasant odours emitted from these hairs can also cause embarrassment at the public baths. This hairy problem gave birth to a new job, the job of a armpit plucker. The armpit pluckers were not qualified in any manner and they were mostly found in the bath houses. As, the razors were not available, the pluckers used sickle-shaped hot iron and tweezers to remove unwanted hairs from their clients. During this period, the armpit pluckers were greatly in demand and majority of their clients were rich and popular people from the Roman society.

2. Groom Of The Stool

This is literally the most weird and repulsive ancient job. Have you ever imagined about a full-time job where a person has to wipe another person's bum after defecation? Definitely unimaginable but this job was practised during the early years of Henry VIII's reign. You will be surprised to know that this job was regarded as a symbol of higher social status. Why? Simply because the Grooms of the stool had the great and rare privilege of wiping the king's bum. The king's minions were often recruited as bum-wipers. Why? Because the recruitment of minions as Grooms of the stool ensured that the king doesn't have to bend to get his bum wiped. Obviously, the king bending in front of a servant is not only humiliating but also inconceivable. I think the social status associated with this job must have provoked many Grooms of the stool to boast about their job skills in public gatherings.

3. Funeral Clown

This weird job was also practised in the ancient Rome. How do you describe a present day funeral scene? We see friends and relatives of the deceased in appropriate funeral dresses and mourning over the dead. This is a simple present day funeral atmosphere but the ancient Romans didn't believed in this type of funeral scene. As a matter of fact, instead of mourning they enjoyed the funeral procession. How? To do this weird job they used to employ a funeral clown. The job requirement of a funeral clown was simple, he has to entertain the grieving relatives. How? A funeral clown was paid to dress like the deceased and a mask of the dead person was put on his face. After looking like the deceased, the next job of a funeral clown was to mimic the dead and to run around the corpse with other clowns. Why did the Romans indulged in this weird practise? Because they believed that this mocking the dead job will appease the spirit of the dead and will bring happiness and joy to the living. This job definitely helped ancient Romans to forget who had died and the funeral clown were well paid for their services.

4. Orgy Planner

This job is weird but I feel that Orgy planners were the luckiest guys on earth. Why? Let me tell you. Today, what you call a person who undertakes the job to organise a party, wedding or any other grand event. Yes, we call them a wedding planner or an event planner. I think most of you are familiar with the term "orgy". If not, then orgy means a wild party, especially one involving excessive drinking and unrestrained sexual activity. In ancient times, orgies were considered as the most common festivities. As the definition of an orgy signifies that it is not an simple activity but a lot of complex activities are involved. To make this complex event a little bit simpler, the ancient people recruited orgy planners to take care of orgy events. The job of an orgy planner was to take care of food, drinks, music and to find healthy and beautiful women for the event. During ancient times, orgies were sponsored by rich people and most often orgy planners were rewarded with any one or all of the above mentioned four things. Gaius Petronius Arbiter who wrote the satirical novel, "Satyricon", is regarded as the most popular orgy planner.

5. Vestal Virgin

Vestal Virgins were the priestesses in the ancient Roman religion. So, you will be thinking why did I added a religious job in this section? Because the severity of punishment associated with this job was really weird and brutal. In the ancient Rome, "Vesta" was regarded as the goddess of the hearth and to become a priestess of Vesta, a girl had to follow certain rules. The first rule for this religious job was that a girl should accept priesthood before she attains puberty. The second rule was a bit harsher, after becoming a Vestal Virgin, the girl should sworn to celibacy for a period of 30 years. The job requirement was simple, the Vestal Virgins had to keep the sacred flame in the temple of Vesta burning all the time. The burning flame was considered as a symbol of virginity. The Vestal Virgins enjoyed many privileges. Allowing the sacred flame of Vesta to die out due to laziness on the part of a Vestal Virgin was considered a crime and that Vestal Virgin was punished severely. Laziness was punished by whipping the Vestal Virgin till she bled. If a Vestal Virgin was caught having a sexual relationship with anyone during her 30 years then she was burnt alive. The rules of this job were simple, you can't sleep and you can't have sex for 30 years.

Top 5 Most Weird And Terrifying Ancient Birth Control Methods

Most of us know that birth control has dual advantages. Personal as well as social advantage. A person can use birth control methods or devices to prevent unwanted pregnancy. Socially, birth control helps to keep the growth of population in check. Today many contraception methods are used such as barrier devices like condoms, oral contraceptive pills, implantable devices, and surgical sterilisation. Continuous abstinence is also a good method but our hormones really make it impossible to follow this method. Birth control methods are really a boon to human beings but do you know about the history of birth control methods? I'm sure that after reading this article most of the ladies will breathe a sigh of relief and will feel lucky to be living in the modern era. Why? Simply because these weird, crazy, and disgusting ancient birth control methods will not only blow your mind but it will definitely provoke you to think twice before making love.

1. Crocodile Dung

The first thing that comes into our minds when we hear the name of Egypt is Pyramids and mummies. Ancient Egyptians invented many things including condoms. They invented condoms in around 3000 B.C. So, before they invention of condoms, how did the ancient Egyptians prevented unwanted pregnancies? By inventing the world's first contraceptive method in 1850 B.C. As, the ancient Egyptians were intelligent people they found out the simple truth that pregnancy could be avoided through blockage or a barrier. Their concept was great but their method was weird and disgusting. Why? Because they used dried Crocodile dung as a pessary (medical device inserted into the vagina). Shocked? They made their sperm barriers by mixing crocodile dung, honey, and sodium carbonate. The ancient Egyptian ladies used to insert this weird mixture into their vagina to block or kill sperm. I know you are wondering whether this weird method did really worked? It might have worked but it is still impossible to grasp the logic behind this method.

2. Weasel's Testicles

This concept is really weird and this method was followed in the Medieval Europe. This method has nothing to do with science but is based on mere superstition. During the sixteenth century, women used to tie weasel's testicles around their inner thighs. If this wasn't enough, they also used to wear weasel bones around their necks. Do you know why they decorated their bodies with these dead objects? Because they believed that these dead parts will make them inconceivable. So, how can the severed testicle's of a weasel make a woman inconceivable? I literally don't have any idea about their logic but one thing is sure, the sight of severed testicles around a women's inner thighs can force any man to take the path of celibacy.

3. Beaver Testicles

This is another weird ancient birth control method which involves testicles. This method was practised in Canada during the 16th century but unlike the above method, this one was not superstitious. To prevent pregnancy, Canadian women used to ingest beaver testicles. Disgusting but effective. How? At the beginning, they brewed a tea with beaver testicles and consumed it to prevent pregnancy. Later, when alcohol was available, the Canadians slightly changed this method. Still, the main ingredient was beaver's testicles but this time the testicles were dried and ground up into a fine powder. Whenever it was needed, they mixed this powder with grain alcohol and drank it. What is the ingredient that is present in a beaver's testicles which has the power to prevent pregnancy? It is still unknown and I think will remain unknown. So, why the Canadians experimented with beaver's testicles is not clear but they might have enjoyed the taste of dried beaver testicles with alcohol better than the brewed tea.

4. Animal Intestines

Currently, condoms are regarded as one of the best birth control methods. We know that condoms are made up of latex but do you know that ancient condoms were made from animal intestines? Condoms were used in ancient Egypt but according to the historians, the first and the most oldest known condom was made from the intestine of a pig. I know it is hard to digest but there are evidences to support this weird fact. This oldest condom was found at Dudley Castle in England with some Latin inscriptions. These Latin inscriptions suggested that this condom is from the 1640s. You will be surprised to know that these Latin inscriptions were actually a user manual on how to use this pig intestine condom. According to this manual, the user should immerse this condom in warm milk prior to its use to avoid diseases. I can't even imagine, how the ancient people used these animal intestine condoms dipped in warm milk.

5. Blacksmith Water

This method was a little bit effective but with horrendous side effects. I think everyone is familiar with a Blacksmith's water. Yes, the water a blacksmith uses to cool the materials he was working with. According to the history of birth control, a Greek gynaecologist named Soranus who was practising during second century AD suggested that women were told to drink blacksmith's water as a method to prevent pregnancy. The most horrifying fact is that this weird and crazy method was practised by women for more than 1,800 years. It is still not clear why women indulged in this practise but it is believed that most of the women thought that the lead in a blacksmith's water has the power to prevent pregnancy. Even during the first World War, most of the women considered this contraception practise as a boon because during the war a majority of the women volunteered to work in factories. Why? Because they believed that the magical atmosphere of a factory filled with lead would keep them sterile. These women never thought about the side effects associated with lead poisoning such as kidney failure, seizures, coma, and even death.

Top 5 Most Shocking Documentaries

We all love feature films but documentaries are the least explored form of media. Why? Because documentaries are not fictitious but they tell the real story of real people. We avoid watching documentaries because we are afraid to confront reality. Unlike feature films a documentary showcases the real tragedy and brutality associated with life. Most of the documentaries are based upon social causes and they are considered as a catalyst for social change. We want to make ourselves believe that life is as beautiful as it is portrayed in most of the feature films but if you want to confront the stark realities of life then you should watch these most shocking documentaries. Warning: Most of the following documentaries contain graphic and disturbing content.

1. Child Of Rage

This documentary was released in 1992 and it tells the true story of a brown-haired six year old girl, Beth Thomas who suffers from reactive attachment disorder. How did the girl acquired this disorder? This happened as a result of horrific physical as well as sexual abuse on her by her own sadistic father. This no holds barred documentary is in the form of an interview between Beth and her clinical psychiatrist. She describes how her father sexually abused her after the death of her mother. The abuses were so cruel and horrific that Beth herself turned into a sociopath without any sympathy for anything. She describes how she turned into a remorseless and brutal child by engaging in sadistic and sexual acts upon her own brother and animals. She confesses that she wants to kill her father and brother. Throughout this documentary you can see that Beth talks in a laid back and nonchalant manner. It expresses the horrific truth that the brutal sexual assaults has made Beth a child without conscience. This documentary is not only too shocking and horrifying but it is also a tearjerker.

2. Interview with a Cannibal

Have you seen the movie, "Cannibal Holocaust"? If yes, then you will be surprised to know that this documentary is much more shocking and horrifying than the movie. This documentary is an interview with the infamous cannibalistic Issei Sagawa who murdered an innocent woman and spent three days eating her flesh. Sagawa was arrested but he was declared insane and unfit for trial. On August 12, 1986, he was discharged from a psychiatric hospital in Tokyo and since then he has been a free man. This documentary is not only a proof that cannibals exist among us but it also explains what human beings are truly capable of.

3. Atomic Wounds

Atomic Wounds is a shocking documentary which tells the tragic story of the sufferings of the survivors of the bombs. This documentary is not only helpful to the people who are interested in nuclear science but also to the people who still have some humanity left in them. We all are familiar with the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki by the United States during the World War II. We know that lakhs of people died during this inhuman attack but do you know what happened to the victims who survived the bomb drops? The people who died during the bombarding were damn lucky because the people who survived it are currently dying a slow and horrific death. Watching this documentary will make you realise that humanity doesn't exist in this world. The victims of these atomic wounds can't speak but they are silently asking a question to each and everyone of us. Why?

Atomic Wounds

4. The Iceman Tapes

Feature films based on the real life story of contract killers and serial killers are always a hit among people. Why? We know that these killers are maniacs and lunatics but still we adore them because of their irrational thinking. The ruthlessness and brutality are other factors which attracts people to serial killers. So, have you ever heard about a contract killer nicknamed Iceman. If you had watched the 2012 flick, "The Iceman", then you will know who I'm talking about. The Iceman Tapes is an interview between the notorious contract killer Richard Kuklinski and a psychiatrist, Michael Baden. This documentary is extremely intriguing and gripping. In this interview, for the very first time Kuklinski describes about his evil deeds in detail. He explains about how he committed his first murder at the young age of 13 and how his tally of murders increased to 250 by the age of 51. This documentary will take you into the mind of a cold-blooded psychopath. Be prepared to get yourself shocked and stunned.

5. Aokigahara Suicide Forest

Aokigahara which is also known as the "Sea of Tress" is a forest that lies at the northwest base of Mount Fuji in Japan. It is also known as the suicide forest. Why? Because it one of the most popular and deadliest suicide points in the world. If the stories are true then Aokigahara is a home to quite a number of ghosts. Several instances of paranormal activity have been reported in this forest. If we go along with the statistics, then this suicide point is really a hot destination for people who are suffering from depression because each year more than 70 suicides are reported in this haunted forest. This documentary is truly disturbing. It is about a geologist who takes a walk through this haunted forest where he witnesses dead bodies hanging from tress. If you think hanging looks funny in feature films then you have no idea what you are getting into.
