Navy Has Classified Video of Infamous UFO Incident
By MJ Banias

The Pentagon has Top Secret-classified briefings and a Secret-classified video about an infamous UFO incident, the U.S. Navy said in response to a public records request.

The files concern the 2004 encounter between the USS Nimitz and a with strange unknown aerial objects. In 2017 and 2018, three videos of bizarre aircraft taken by Navy pilots from their fighter planes made national news. In December 2017, The New York Times ran a story about Navy pilots who intercepted a strange object off the coast of San Diego on November 14th, 2004, and managed to shoot video of the object with their F-18’s gun camera. In September of 2019, Motherboard reported that the Navy confirmed the videos contained footage of “unknown aerial phenomena.”

In response to a Freedom of Information Act request sent by researcher Christian Lambright seeking more information on the incident, the Navy said it had “discovered certain briefing slides that are classified TOP SECRET. A review of these materials indicates that are currently and appropriate Marked and Classified TOP SECRET under Executive Order 13526, and the Original Classification Authority has determined that the release of these materials would cause exceptionally grave damage to the National Security of the United States.”

“We have also determined that ONI possesses a video classified SECRET that ONI is not the Original Classification Authority for,” the letter continued.

Motherboard independently verified the FOIA response with the U.S. Navy.

“The Department of Defense, specifically the U.S. Navy, has the video. As Navy and my office have stated previously, as the investigation of UAP sightings is ongoing, we will not publicly discuss individual sighting reports/observations,” Susan Gough, a Pentagon spokesperson, told Motherboard. “However, I can tell you that the date of the 2004 USS Nimitz video is Nov. 14, 2004. I can also tell you that the length of the video that’s been circulating since 2007 is the same as the length of the source video. We do not expect to release this video.”

Gough was not able to comment on the briefing slides, and when asked if the source video held by the Navy was a higher resolution, contained audio, or other data, she stated she was unable to provide any additional information.

Many in the UFO research community have speculated that it could be the enigmatic ‘Grailian’ full length raw copy of the original 2004 UAP footage. Popular Mechanics reported in November that several original witnesses of the Nimitz incident allegedly saw a longer higher resolution video of the UFO encounter. Gary Voorhis, a Petty Officer who served on the Princeton, a ship in Nimitz fleet, told Popular Mechanics that he “definitely saw video that was roughly 8 to 10 minutes long and a lot more clear.” Others, such as Commander David Fravor, have stated that longer videos of the incident probably do not exist.

Luis Elizondo, the former Pentagon staffer and the man who played a key role in making the Navy video public, told Motherboard that straightforward messaging does not seem to be the Pentagon’s strong suit. When the New York Times ran its 2017 story concerning the Nimitz UFO incident, it also broke the existence of $22 million dollar UFO investigation program called AATIP, the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, and that Elizondo, a career intelligence officer, ran the project. The Pentagon has repeatedly changed its story since then; as recently as last month, the Pentagon said that AATIP had nothing to do with UFOs.

“The Pentagon has a long history of sometimes providing inaccurate information to the American people,” Elizondo said. “This is true as recently as this week regarding the draft memo involving Iran, and two weeks ago when the press finally received the truth about Afghanistan despite 18 years of statements to the contrary.”

“As in the case involving UAPs, I can only hope that the inconsistent message is due to the benign results of a large and cumbersome bureaucracy and not something more nefarious like a cover-up or deliberate misinformation campaign,” Elizondo added.

Elizondo, who resigned from the Pentagon in 2017, said that he is “not able to comment further on the existence of a longer video due to my obligations involving my NDA with the Government and the fact that I am no longer employed with the U.S. Government. However, as I stated before, people should not be surprised by the revelation that other videos exist and at greater length"

A New Look at Who Is In Our Skies
By Diane Tessman

Who would have thought that "Tic-Tacs," those trusty breath mints, would change the name of the game in the quest to find the answer to the UFO puzzle?

As I read the USS Nimitz F/A-18 Navy pilots' descriptions of their encounters with the Tic-Tac capsules, it seems to me that there is an element of hot-dogging fighter pilots on both sides. The difference is, the Tic-Tac pilots or pilot-system, have highly superior technology. It seems that each side has the persona of "Top Guns."

This does not seem alien, it suggests both sides are of human origin. Real extraterrestrials likely do not behave as we do with combative humor and competitive machismo. ETs might just pulverize the other craft and be done with it, or quite the opposite, they might be horrified at the jet pilots' aggression and zoom away.

The Tic-Tacs could have stayed out of the way of the Navy maneuvers which were scheduled every year for that area, at that time. It seems they did not care if they were seen and if skirmishes and chases ensued. In fact, they seem to enjoy it or at least willingly participate. Did they want to be seen and analyzed? It was predictable the U.S. Navy would be right where it was on those days.

Analyzed and videotaped the Tic-Tacs have been! The U.S. Navy F/A-18 Hornet pilots, Navy radar operators, and other personnel from  the USS Nimitz, have bravely related their accounts of the 30 to 40 footlong oblong, windowless craft, whichflew circles around our fighter jets from the Nimitz on several occasions in 2004. The USS Roosevelt' personnel added their voices, recounting their similar experiences in 2014 and 2015 with the same unknown, unidentified, craft.The Navy now admits that these are legitimate UAPs - unknowns but real.

This has raised a stir in the UFO field causing Michio Kaku to state, "Even if not smoking-gun proof, the declassified videos - bolstered by confirmation of multiple sightings of unexplained aerial vehicles during 2014 and 2015, including at least one near-collision - are giving ufology new weight. We've reached a turning point." 

Dr. Kaku continues, "It used to be that believers had to prove that these objects were from an intelligent race in outer space. Now the burden of proof is on the government to prove they're not from intelligent beings in outer space.The possibility that they are vehicles from other planetary civilizationsnow has to be put on the table."

It is time to add even more new weight to UFO reality; the Tic-Tacs tend to verify this new weight: We have ignored ample evidence and we have carelessly skipped analysis, on the possibility that UFO occupants arehumans who have traveled back in time, having found the keyto do so. If the entity or system in the Tic-Tac is artificial intelligence, then it is our artificial intelligence creation.

I hasten to add that I firmly believe the galaxy and the universe teem with life, some of it is advanced life, and extraterrestrials may indeed visit Earth. However, humans tend to forget or ignore the fact that we will evolve and advance in the future. What is impossible today will be possible tomorrow; that's how it is.

Our science and technology have entered a Golden Era with exponential leaps forward. In 5 years, we may well be 200 years ahead of where we are now. It is impossible to keep up withcomputer innovations and discoveries, and soon quantum computers will become common. Granted, we are not evolving spiritually as fast, but the science/technology revolution cannot be denied.

Strange craft in our skies have been with us since 1947 and perhaps since ancient times;I believe, the occupants arepredominantly our descendants. They may be from different phases of time, some 75 years from now, while others are 500 years ahead of us or 25,000 years ahead.After all, once the key to traveling back in time is found, endless possibilities openwhich we who are still chained to "time," can only imagine.

Of course,most people accept the "fact" that traveling back is impossible. This is perhaps why we assumed, without sufficient analysis and consideration, that ETs are the answer.We also have been shown frightening aliens on media screens who gave us an adrenalin rush, so weliked that.We grew both fearful and entertained by an assortment of ETs.

Of course, the fact is, Einstein never said traveling back in time is impossible. He said he could not figure out how to do it and that it had challenges.

We have sold ourselves short, figuring that it must be extraterrestrials who are so advanced because we who walked on the moon in 1969, nonetheless, just don't have what it takes. No wonder many people are depressed; we have lost confidence in our worth and in our own species in the 21st Century.Many days, I do understand!

Do we even have a future? If we do, it will notbe at the scientific/technology stage we are, today!

We have been dumbed down these days, on purpose, by governments, religions, and corporations, for their own greedy purposes.  We can't see beyond our struggle for money to pay the rent and buy food. We are purposely kept in this dismal state, who has time for optimism to dream? To invent? To innovate? To explore?The answer: Only a wealthy few, and that makes us even more disgruntled.

The fact is, Future Humans would pose a bigger challenge to the status quo and the powers-that-be than would extraterrestrials. After the initial shock, some people would turn to advanced members of their own species who no doubt have the cure for cancer and other dreaded diseases, and who seem to have answers for many of our problems today.

Advanced methods could help tremendously, for instance, in counteracting global warming. I do suspect, though, that there is a non-interference directive which keeps our time traveling descendants from overtly contacting and helping us as individuals.

Some of us turn to extraterrestrials we feel exist in our skies, to give us hope and help.To each hisor her own belief, but we must ask, "Why would ETs from a far distant world, care about us, why would they hang around formillennia or at least since 1947?" Their home is far away. To answer that question,one mustdecide that ETs are ascended, ultra-caring, unconditionally loving beings who exist primarily to help humans. Are we sure this is the answer?

As Jacques Vallee pointed out years ago, why have there been tens of millions of UFO fly-overs on dark nights and bright days for years, all over this planet,which seem to have nothing to do with us?There are so many millions offly-overs, even landings, why would an alien race need somuch analysis of Earth's oceans, land, and life-forms? Wouldn't they have completed this in perhaps 5000 flyovers in perhaps a span of 5 years? Whatever and whoever accounts for the UFO phenomenon, it seems to belong on Earth and to Earth and is often just going about its business. Earth belongs to our children's children's children, too.

There may be college courses in the year 2350 which include a semester of field work back with the ancestors. Or, there may be urgent reasons why Future Humans patrol Earth skies, travel back to give warnings about nuclear warheads atop ballistic missiles, and harass nuclear installations which might well get hit one day soon by one of the F-4 tornadoes prevalent in these days of global warming. We currently have not fully understood the dangerous instability of various radioactive threats in rising waters, and within a more violent, chaotic planetary climate system. Of course, many nuclear power plants sit right beside large bodies of water.

Future Humans have a home: Earth. They are right here, right now, in a different layer or snapshot, of The Eternal Now.

In the earth of Earth, is buried radioactive waste which has a half-life of perhaps 100,000 years. (Radioactive half-life estimates vary widely depending what website one looks at, but 100,000 is a moderate number).Do our great, great, great grandchildren have to contend with the leaking radioactive mess we made?

What if the UFO message is, "We are trying to point out to you, our ancestors, that you are damaging our mutual planet with radiation, climate chaos, contamination of many kinds, killing our oceans and destroying our natural and mutual land."

What about abductions? It is very difficult to find an abduction not done by humans or humanoids. This evolutionary hominid to homininroadmap, instilled in our DNA, is unique to Earth. We must make many assumptions to say that an ancient race of aliens maybe called The Preservers, traveled around the galaxy and seeded humans all over the place. That is simply a story. Our DNA is reality.

The human race may have a smaller form in the future due the human population explosion; many UFO occupants are smaller than current humans. Perhaps responsiblefuture parents choose to create smaller humans to help save theresources of Earth; this is similar thinking to the fact we are advised to never eat meat again if we wish to help the planet. This of course is speculation.

It is true that the march of evolution is towardhumans having larger heads, less hair, and having faded(thinner) skin, perhaps from sitting in front of the computer all day, as muscles atrophy. Academic evolutionary experts advise us of this evolutionary roadmap, on up the road.

We are linked to our descendants by DNA and by collective consciousness. It is time for new thinking on the possibility that traveling back in time can be done and is being done; in fact, today theoretical physicist Jack Sarfatti offers a  zero-gravity, low power warp formula for warping space and traveling back in time, which has gained a lot of attention. It has promise, this might be it! And even if it isn't, I believe that one day we will ask, "Who is in our skies?" and the answer from our progeny will be, "We are."

Bright Fireball Frightens Residents of Puerto Rico

A blazing meteor-like fireball has been spotted hurtling through the sky in Puerto Rico after a series of powerful earthquakes.

The unusual celestial phenomenon has been branded a sign of the "end of times" by locals on the Caribbean island.

Citizens of the US territory have been jolted by a series of powerful earthquakes since the beginning of 2020, and assumed the blaring light ball was "something catastrophic".

The island has been recovering from the aftermath of Hurricane Maria since 2017, a deadly natural disaster that destroyed the territory and killed 3,057 people.

Frightened Puerto Ricans who witnessed the phenomenon took to social media to share photos and video of the fireball.

One Twitter user said: "Just saw a huge meteor or fireball about a mile into the ocean over Rincón, Puerto Rico.

"It was ridiculously bright and was pretty amazing and crazy."

While a second feared: “Wow if it hit it could be catastrophic, this is just going to get worse, we are at the end of times, Jesus Christ is about to blow the trumpet.”

And a third added: "Australia burns, Indonesia floods, earthquake in Canada, Puerto Rico & Mexico, Iran proclaims death for USA, the koala is proclaimed almost extinct, a fireball falls to the ocean, and an electric storm in Rio.

"We’re only 7 days into 2020 and I am truly worried."

National Weather Service satellites captured the blast over Puerto Rico at around 4.30PM EST.

Shortly after it appeared, eyewitnesses said the fireball disintegrated into thin air over the island.

UFOs and Grisly Mutilations
By Colin Bertram

The details are both grisly and strangely surgical: corpses found under the open sky with their eyes plucked out, tongues removed and private parts excised—all extracted with the utmost precision and leaving not a drop of blood.

Reports of such unexplained mutilations, carried out on both humans and animals, have baffled investigators for decades, leading to speculation about whether the perpetrators might be otherworldly beings conducting biological experiments on earth’s inhabitants. While scores of reports have emerged from U.S. western and midwestern states detailing mysterious bloodless animal mutilations, human cases have been far less common—and often much sketchier in their documentation.

The enigmatic ‘Project Grudge Report No. 13’

One of the most shocking cases, the Lovette-Cunningham incident, involves an American Air Force sargeant allegedly abducted by a saucer-like aircraft, after which his cleanly mutilated body was found in the New Mexico desert. In ufology circles, reports have circulated that the case was studied by Project Grudge, one of the earliest U.S. Air Force programs tasked with investigating sightings of unidentified flying objects in the years after World War II. (Project Grudge was a short-lived precursor to the better known Project Blue Book, which ran from 1951 to 1969, many documents from which are now declassified.) The result of the Air Force investigation into the purported abduction was allegedly a 600-page document labeled “Project Grudge Report 13.”

Problem is, no official information on Report 13 exists and the U.S. government denies its very existence, so its details are known only from second-hand sources who claim to have seen and analyzed the document. One account came from controversial conspiracy theorist William Cooper (1943–2001), who asserts he was tasked with analyzing an annotated version of Grudge Report 13 in the early 1970s. The other came from William English, a former Green Beret captain who says he too was asked to analyze the document, while assigned to a U.S. security service at a former Royal Air Force base in Chicksands, England.

English dictated two audio cassettes outlining what he remembered from Report 13, and according to Military Encounters With Extraterrestrials: The Real War of the Worlds by author Frank Joseph, English also participated in a 1991 Colorado radio broadcast where he discussed his findings. Cooper’s and English’s stories echo one another closely.

A terrifying abduction, a curious autopsy

Both recount an alleged incident of March 1956 involving Air Force sergeant Jonathan P. Lovette, who was assisting Major William Cunningham in the White Sands missile testing grounds near Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico. While searching for scattered debris from a recent rocket test, Cunningham was shocked when he heard a loud scream. Thinking Lovette had perhaps been bitten by a snake, English recountsCunningham crossed the dune to aid his partner when he purportedly witnessed one of the more bizarre human-extraterrestrial encounters.

Instead of finding Lovette nursing a snake bite, Cunningham, according to English, recounted seeing the soldier being dragged by a long serpentine arm, wrapped around his legs, connected to a silver disk hovering in the air 15 to 20 feet away. Cunningham watched, frozen in horror, as Lovette was pulled inside the craft, which then rose vertically into the sky. The major then stumbled toward his jeep and radioed for assistance.

Security teams arrived and the disturbed Cunningham was confined to the base hospital for observation and treatment after retelling what he believed he witnessed. According to Joseph’s Military Encounters book, base personnel did confirm an unidentified radar contact near Holloman at the time Lovette vanished. The base dispatched search parties into the desert, but it would be three days before Lovette’s nude corpse was discovered—some 10 miles from the site of the alleged abduction. From all indications the body had been exposed to the elements for 24 to 48 hours. According to English, the report offered no explanation of what might account for the missing third day, and the autopsy performed on Lovette raised more questions than delivered answers.

First question was: Why had Lovette’s corpse been so severely mutilated? His tongue had been cut from the lower portion of the jaw, his eyes gouged out and his anus removed. In the Air Force medical examination report pertaining to the incident, English alleges that the coroner remarked on the apparent surgical skill used to remove the organs—in particular that the anus and genitalia had been neatly extracted like a plug. Perhaps most puzzling was the fact that the body had been completely drained of blood, but surprisingly, there was no vascular collapse usually associated with death by bleeding.

Though Grudge Reports 1 through 12 have been declassified, along with Report 14, no official mention or accounting of Report 13 exists. The Lovette/Cunningham case remains unsubstantiated and no follow-up reports regarding the incident—if it in fact did happen—are available.

The wider mutilation phenomenon

While easily disregarded as fiction, the alleged 1956 New Mexico incident offers intriguing parallels to other reported mutilations both past and present. In 1988, a body was allegedly found at the Guarapiranga Reservoir in Brazil. According to reports, the victim had been dead for 48 to 72 hours, but there was no sign of decomposition. The eyes, ears, tongue and genitalia had been removed, as had the digestive organs. Officials were never able to identify the victim.

Widespread reports of livestock mutilation also contain similar details. Since the early 1970s, incidents of mutilated cattle, sheep, horses, rabbits, deer, bison and elk have been recorded, with the bloodless corpses often lacking jaw flesh, eyes, ears, tongue, lymph nodes and genitalia. In 2009, The Denver Post reported four calves were found mutilated in similar ways. NPR reported on a 2019 incident in Colorado in which five young purebred bulls mysteriously showed up dead, drained of blood and with body parts cleanly excised.

“A lot of people lean toward the aliens,” Harney County Sherriff’s Deputy Dan Jenkins told NPR. “One caller told us to look for basically a depression under the carcass. ‘Cause he said that the alien ships will kinda beam the cow up and do whatever they are going to do with it. Then they just drop from a great height.”

So numerous did reports of cattle mutilation become in western and midwestern states in the 1970s that the FBI was asked to step in and investigate. But according to now declassified documents, they were unable to properly perform the task due to jurisdictional issues.

No official answer has ever been given to these strange and unsettling incidents, and they remain unsolved.

Ex Navy Boss Stumped By UFOs
By Billy Cox

America’s former Chief of Naval Operations stated recently that the unidentified flying objects that appeared to have outperformed Navy fighter pilots on videos recorded in 2004 and 2015 remain a mystery.

“I’ve seen the videos and, at least in my time, most of the assessments were inconclusive as to what it was,” said retired Admiral Gary Roughead, following a speaking engagement in Sarasota. “But the whole issue of defense against autonomous vehicles is one that the Department is taking pretty darned seriously.”

Three sets of gun-camera videos – one taken from an F-18 assigned to the USS Nimitz operating off southern California in November 2004, and two more from Super Hornets attached to the USS Roosevelt during maneuvers off Jacksonville in January 2015 – were authenticated as official government footage by the Defense Department last year.

The target of the 2004 footage, dubbed the “Tic Tac” for its oblong shape, reportedly plunged from 80,000 feet to 20,000 feet in less than a second, a speed that would have easily destroyed a conventional aircraft. The New York Times broke the story in 2017 and, last summer, in an unprecedented move, the Navy publicly announced it had issued new guidelines for its pilots to report “unidentified aircraft.”

Roughead commanded both the Atlantic and Pacific Fleets before serving as CNO from 2007 through 2011. Booked for a Sarasota Institute of Lifetime Learning lecture on China’s 21st century military strategy, the Admiral said “there weren’t that many” such events on his watch, but that developing “unmanned autonomous aircraft” remains a priority.

“I think we’re going to continue to see new technology in the form of unmanned systems that will begin to interfere with military capability. And we’re not alone. There’s no question that China and Russia want to plan.

“Without knowing what they may be — are they phenomena or are they vehicles that someone was able to get into place? — I think one of the great challenges that more people looked at is, where would these have come from? And quite frankly, I haven’t spent a lot of time on that issue.”

Retired Navy Cmdr. David Fravor, who chased the Tic Tac UFO and recounted that experience for The Times, also reported a related mystery occurring simultaneously underwater, beneath the Tic Tac. Roughead said underwater weapons systems pose the next great evolutionary hurdle.

“I remember there was one (UFO), and it may have been after I retired, that seemed to go under water,” he said. “If in fact it was a real vehicle, how did it launch and recover? Because as you know, it’s not an easy thing to get something that can perform extraordinarily well in the air and dive into the water and become something else. What that phenomenon was, I can’t help you out there.”

In fact, Roughead recalled how, in public speeches to defense contractors, he announced the next “game-changing” breakthrough will be submersible military assets, whose power-sourcing could be “more transformative than the autonomous stuff in the air.” He compared the scale of such ambitions to the Apollo moon shots, which will demand “a triad of business, government, and academia coming together.

“The aerodynamics and the hydrodynamics and the strength that’s required to be able to fly and operate at depths, and the power you need to move at high speeds in the air, then how do you convert that power to something under the water – those are huge technological challenges,” he said. “There’s no question in my mind that in the future of warfare, probably long after I’m gone, we’ll see that type of thing beginning to occur.”

Imagine, Roughead said, being able to park military technology at the bottom of the ocean, virtually undetected, at a strategic location, “tell it to go to sleep” indefinitely, and then activate it when needed.

But with a little foresight, he added, investigations into such mind-bending scenarios could be used to build bridges with rivals like China.

“We have to look for opportunities, we have to look for venues where we can bring caring people together to say, OK, there’s a technological issue here, how do we bring the bright minds together,” Roughead said.

“How do we protect our legitimate national security technologies and intellectual property, but still get after some of the hard problems? I think that’s a way for closing some of the gaps down the road and bringing trust between the two.

“The first step for me is, how do you define what it is that we can work on together (to) remove some of the sensitivities and suspicions? Until you have that discussion, you’re not going to make any progress. The journey begins with the first step.”

Swamp Known for Bigfoot Sightings Saved by Conservationists
By By Mark Price

A haunting Appalachian Mountain swamp well known to Bigfoot researchers has been purchased by a land conservancy in North Carolina for protection.

Foothills Conservancy of North Carolina says it closed on the 17 acres in Burke County in December, with the help of money from a private donor.

Multiple Bigfoot sightings have been reported in the area in recent years, according to Bigfoot researchers.

However, the Jonas Ridge Bog is prized by environmentalists as an increasingly scarce example of a Southern Appalachian Mountain marsh, places where the soil is “nutrient-poor, acidic, and saturated,” according to Nature.org.

In other words, creepy.

“Southern Appalachian mountain bogs are rare,” the Foothills Conservancy reported in a release. “At the highest elevations in Burke County, Jonas Ridge Bog is habitat to unique species of plants, animals, and insects.”

Among the species is a beautiful but carnivorous plant, the mountain sweet pitcher, which eats insects, experts say.

The Foot Hills Conservancy intends to give the bog to Burke County to protect, with future development limited to an interpretive hiking trail, according to the release.

Conservancy officials told McClatchy News they were not aware of folklore connected to the bog area, which borders the Pisgah Loop Scenic Highway.

However, Burke County has its share of mysteries, including tales of 15th century settlers fearing witches, and the Brown Mountain Lights. The latter is “a series of ghost lights” that appear sporadically near Brown Mountain, reports RomanticAsheville.com.

Burke County’s rugged mountains are also believed by some to be home to the legendary half-man, half-ape known as Bigfoot or Sasquatch.

Bigfoot 911, a Marion-based cryptid research group, told McClatchy News that eight Bigfoot sightings have been reported “from around the Jonas Ridge area of Burke County” in the past five years.

Southern Appalachian Mountain bogs are a perfect fit for Bigfoot lore, because they are often remote and “less than thrilling” places for people to visit.

The Nature Conservancy says the “bogs are one of North America’s rarest and most incredible habitats.”

“Most people in North Carolina will never see one. ... Although near 5,000 acres of bogs were once found in North Carolina, only about 500 acres remain,” the Nature Conservancy reports. “Many bogs have been lost to draining, ditching, and development.”

Man Says He Lost His Virginity to a Ghost Called Molly

Rob Mac, 30, says he lost his virginity to his first love, a ghost called Molly who once haunted his home. But heartbroken Rob says he never had a chance to say goodbye.

Rob’s revelation came to light in a trailer for the new season of First Dates Ireland, when he opened up to his date Leona. Ahead of his TV debut Thursday night, Rob spoke to 2FM’s Jennifer Zamparelli about the romantic paranormal experience.

The tattoo-loving, music graduate who said he’s been susceptible to paranormal activity since he was a child, explained to Jen that shortly after he moving into a Limerick apartment with his mother at age 16, they realised the home was “extremely active”.

“She’s a white entity, she would come into my room, stand in the corner, look at me and smile,” said Rob, adding that he never felt fear.

“This entity started appearing to me frequently and the relationship between her and I developed in terms of her understanding and neutering and her just being so kind,” said Rob.

“One night it did progress into something very physical and.. yeah it happened three times”.

When asked by a curious Jen how one has sex with a ghost, Rob delved a little further into the details, explaining that “she literally got on top of the bed and straddled me”.

“It was different, I've never taken drugs in my life but I’d imagine that’s what it feels like it was very euphoric, it was amazing,” he gushed.

Rob explained that after their sexual encounters, the house became hostile and “beyond active,” something he thinks may have been in revenge from a husband he didn’t know Molly had.

“We had to flee the apartment. There were plates smashing, lights turning on and off. It was absolutely crazy we ran out of there, literally”.

When asked about the Louth woman who was forced to divorce the a 300-year-old pirate when he turned against her, Rob said he envies her opportunity to end the relationship.

“In a way I kind of envy her because at least she had that choice I didn’t, like I don’t see her anymore. I don’t have an option, I’m heartbroken in a way. I would consider it my first true connection with a female,” he complained.

Rob says he’ll never rule out sex with more ghosts in the future because “there’s a much higher chance of walking away from that without catching something”, ultimately he feels like they understand him better than people.

“I find a lot of people don’t get me and I think they [ghosts] get me”.
