Peter Madsen: Murder on a Submarine

This post is being shared by Karalee, you can find her over at Tales of Belle.

Since I live in Denmark, I have been following the case of Peter Madsen and Kim Wall the day she was reported missing. I wanted to share the background of the case as well as the stories Madsen told and the evidence against him.

Peter Madsen is a Danish inventor who built a submarine, and the Swedish journalist Kim Wall contacted him for an interview. Last August, Madsen invited Wall to interview him while aboard his submarine, and they met for a 2 hour interview. However, the submarine never returned to the harbor and Wall was reported missing by her boyfriend.

Dream catchers: Do I believe they work?

First off, let’s look at the official definition of a dream catcher:

In some Native American cultures, a dreamcatcher or dream catcher is a handmade willow hoop, on which is woven a net or web. The dreamcatcher may also include sacred items such as certain feathers or beads. Traditionally they are often hung over cradles as protection. It originates in Ojibwe culture as the “spider web charm”, a hoop with woven string or sinew meant to replicate a spider’s web, used as a protective charm for infants.

So as we can see, in Native American cultures they have mostly been used for protection. Protection against what, though? Just bad dreams or are there any sinister undertones to it? In Ojibwe culture, they had a spiritual protector that was known among them as a “spider woman”, and it has been said that since she couldn’t fully protect everyone at the same time, they created these little dream catchers looking like spider webs so that they would have a part of her with them.

Abandoned places I definitely wouldn’t dare to visit, part 1.

There are many places in the world that have either vanished mysteriously, died out completely to become a ghost town, or they may just be a legend! Here’s a few of those I find to be the most interesting, legends or not. I would probably be too much of a scared-y cat to ever visit one of these places, but they’re still very interesting to learn about. There are many theme parks I could have put on this list, but quite a lot of them have been demolished over the past few years so there is not much left to see of them, if there is any at all.. This includes the infamous Nara Dreamland.

Vero Controversy

This post is being shared by Karalee, you can find her over at Tales of Belle.

By now everyone has probably heard of Vero. If not, Vero is a social media app that was positioned as the new ad-free Instagram with a chronological feed. Sounds good right?

Vero was created in 2015 as a relationship-first social network, and only in the past couple of weeks it has gained popularity mainly due to influencers promoting it. I for one do not jump on the bandwagon, and I like to wait and see if things live up to their hype. I am glad I waited it out. When the influencers started promoting Vero, I thought it was really odd especially since the app has been around for 3 years. When I also heard that Vero was going to be a subscription-based app, I wanted no part of it even though it was free to begin with. The millions of people who did join Vero were welcomed with technical problems and were unable to use the app for what it was intended for (uploading pictures and videos).

Need a hand? A horrific discovery.


(I’ve pixelated the picture because it was not a pretty sight.)

An article was posted on the Siberian Times news page saying that 27(!) pairs of hands had been washed up on an Amur River Island. Where did the hands come from? The police had no idea, they, and the public, suspected that maybe someone had gone grave robbing, or that there was a mass murderer on the lose. But it turns out that it could have been a forensic lab that mistakenly disposed of the hands the wrong away.

My Paranormal Experience: The Woman with the Knife

This experience is being shared by Karalee, you can find her over at Tales of Belle.

Me and my parents were on vacation in Canada, and we decided to visit the Banff Springs Hotel as part of our trip to Banff National Park.

While at the hotel, I needed to go to the bathroom. Before the entrance to the bathroom was a gorgeous sitting room and I admired the interior as I walked to the entrance. However, when I got to the doorway, I froze. Against the wall near the sinks was a woman with a pool of blood around her. I could see a knife near her stomach and she was clearly dead as the blood flowed from her body. The woman was also wearing a light-colored dress that looked it was from the early 1900s and contrasted with the blood around her.
