The K-Files


Welcome to week 4 of this revamped paranormal review now called The K-Files. This week I present to you prototype logo #4. This will be the last new logo, so get ready to vote for which one is your favorite.

This week, the Top Story changes the subject with a look into alien abductions and the media. Next, I present a bit of background for a common ghost-hunting tool. Finally, in an odd story, I give my take on a so-called ‘money pit.’

Prepare yourself; here come the K-Files…

:: Top Story ::

Time to put break from all that cryptozoological brouhaha and move on to something a bit more…extraterrestrial.


By Amy Wilson - Herald-leader Staff Writer

It seems that you can Google "alien abduction," read big books, do extensive research and still come up with one conclusion: The more TV you watch, the more knowledge you have of the appearance and behavior of abducting aliens. And the more knowledge you have, the more likely you are to be abducted.

Or think you've been abducted.

Or are willing to try to convince the rest of us that you've been abducted, experimented on, had your eyes pulled out, your private parts probed and your nose implanted with some kind of thing that only the aliens can find on careful review.


Alright, the big debate: Are aliens abducting humans for scientific study? Or is just all in our heads? Already assuming not only the existence of intelligent life in the universe but also that this intelligence is indeed interacting with mankind, this phenomena (or theory, or whatever you want to call it) is about as extreme as the UFO debate goes.

Over the decades, there have been scores of abduction stories all describing essentially the same thing. This means either they’ve experience the same event, or they’ve all been influenced by the first few reported encounters.

I like to think the former, the above article argues for the latter.

According to the author, reports of alien abduction come in waves. Whenever something about the subject is released by the media, for example, it will influence people to jump on the bandwagon. It’s a fair enough theory, but I still don’t fully buy it.

Although I will admit that many abduction stories may be hoaxed, I think the numbers speak for themselves. According to a mentioned poll, 3.7 million Americans have reported being abducted by aliens, and 50% of those questioned believe extraterrestrials have visited the Earth.

I guess we’ll just have to see what the recent influx in alien-related television content does to the abduction reporting. If there is indeed a big increase in the near future, I may rethink my stance on the abduction phenomena.

In either case, the article also presents some of the positive indicators that you have been abducted by aliens. They include:

Have you ever woken up startled? Do you have to sleep against a wall? Ever been afraid of your closet? A fear of doctors? Had the feeling you were going crazy? Are you aware of the cosmos, interested in ecology, the environment, vegetarianism?

Frighteningly, I answered ‘yes’ to all of these questions. Perhaps there is a reason I’m so interested in aliens and the paranormal? You never know.

Back to the basics.

South Florida man inadvertently invents a 'ghost meter'

By Margo Harakas - November 7 2005

Fourteen years ago, Lechter launched a company (now called Technology Alternatives Corp.) to produce ultra-low-radiation computer monitors.

When people asked how they could verify the claim that his monitor had nearly zero emissions, he responded by manufacturing a comparatively inexpensive gauss meter that they could use to take their own readings.


It seems that the gauss meter, a widely used piece of ghost-hunting technology, was created for a very different purpose—proving that a low-emission computer monitor lived up to its claim. Its creator, George Lechter, was in fact a skeptic of ghosts.

How ironic that his invention is now a staple tool for ghost-hunters.

According to the article, he is now doing a bit of ghost hunting himself, with an electromagnetic theory on ghosts. He compares them to radio waves—a form of energy that cannot be destroyed. Sounds reasonable enough to me. The human body has a good deal of energy, like brainwaves and the like, and I could understand that energy existing after the body is gone.

Anyway, best of luck to you George.

I want in on some of this action.

For Sale: Island with Mysterious Money Pit

By Heather Whipps - Special to LiveScience

It may look like a fixer-upper at first glance, but what is buried beneath scrubby little Oak Island might just make its estimated $7 million price tag worth the investment.

Oak Island, in Nova Scotia, is famous for its Money Pit, a mystery that has endured two centuries, claimed six lives and swallowed up millions in life savings.


Ok, so let me get this straight. A kid started digging up an old clearing over 200 years ago, and to this day, people are still digging in hopes that there’s some kind of treasure buried there.

As if enough time and money hasn’t already been committed in this thing, now they’re saying $7 million more would be needed to finish the job.

I cant wait for them to raise the money, get everything dug out, and find a lone scrap of paper with the word “Ha!” written on it. I’m sorry, but I smell a Al Capone’s vault let-down, here.
