Architecture firm that potentially designed building(s) in the compound, refers to it as the "Neal Sanctuary": http://grummelengineering.com/RESIDENTIAL.html

>could just be a shitty website though
>There are, according to the White Pages and multiple other similar website, five people said to be living at our 17700 SE Forest Hill Dr, Damascus, OR 97089 address. Their names are Anthony Neal (referenced in the architecture site), Sharon Neal, Greg Neal, Natalia Neal and Dean Neal.
>Dean and Sharon are 65+ years of age, Greg 50-54 and Natalia and Anthony between the ages of 35-39. Perhaps Dean and Sharon are parents to Anthony, Natalia being his wife or sister. Greg being in an odd age range for this match, potentially another child if Dean/Sharon are substantially older. Also, the fact that their residence is referred to as the 'Neal Sanctuary' seems a bit strange to me.
>"Yeah /pol/ actually cracked the case yesterday, just some new age spiritualist that were using a church to dodge taxes. The "complex" is actually just a large botanical garden with caves that work like greenhouses."

A Curiosity of Spirit

Chapter 1: Spirit’s Missing Time
Last January I was at JPL on a project when a colleague of mine in the unrelated MER program was working a Spirit glitch. Spirit is one of the two rovers still operating on Mars. Spirit’s expected mission was for a little over 90 days long, but six years later the rover is still operating. Spirit has performed well beyond expectations, but even the best robot is going to have its off days. One of these off days was in late January 2009. My friend and colleague, who I’ll call Rich, was a senior software engineer on the team tasked with maintaining the mobility flight software, the code that controlled the rover’s movements and experiments.
Spirit had refused an instruction. It had been sent instructions to move, it acknowledged receipt of those instructions, but it did not move. In and of itself that was not highly unusual, the rover is given license to ignore move requests it does not believe it can fulfill successfully or safely. But not only did Spirit not move, its non-volatile flash memory was missing data about its motionless hours. Through a separate subsystem they were able to estimate that it had been awake for at least an hour during the gap, but what it had been doing or why it had decided not to move was unknown. Imaging before and after the event showed no change, cameras, IDD, suspension values, terrain; all were the same. This was the mystery my colleague and his team were engaged in solving. Why did the rover ignore its command to move? Why did the rover record nothing? Presumably the one question would answer the other.
Salad Fingers: Cage (What Really Happened)

Salad Fingers stared nervously from between the bars of the cage at the stitch-headed boy, who was kneeling down and holding something aloft, as though proffering it to him. It looked like an old ring, scuffed and dirty, but in place of a diamond was a human molar.
“Uh, wuh what’s this?” he stammered.
The boy babbled his incomprehensible gibberish, punctuating it with a sickening shriek. Salad Fingers backed away, suddenly very afraid. The child breathed heavily through his mouth, an eager wheeze, staring at his captive from his bulbous, featureless black eyes. He smiled, and stepped forward, holding out the ring to Salad Fingers.
Salad Fingers tried to quell his growing disquiet, telling himself that the boy was merely playing some strange prank with him. Though he knew in the pit of his twisted soul that this was not true, he made an effort. “Uh, uh I don’t like this game. I, uh, think I’m going to go home now.”
The boy frowned, and seemed to concentrate. His lips appeared to ground against the words he spoke, forcing them into coherence. “Yooourrre my wiiiiffffe nooow.” He then slid his hand into his pocket, and produced a rusty iron key.

I'm not sure if /x/ still cares about this, but I think I got something.
Someone posted this site, a while back, you can type in certain words (look, feel) and each string returns a different file.
I just tried the key 'view' and it downloads an AVI file-- which I nabbed a couple screens from, though it wouldn't play right on my shitty computer. Can anybody check this out, please?

Hi /x/. I need some help. I am a Catholic, and I believe in angels, demons, heaven, hell, purgatory, and tormented spirits.
So a few years ago, my grandmother, who is also catholic, told me and several of my cousins that there was a way you could find out the name of your guardian angel. Being curious, we asked how. It was a simple sort of ritual/rite during which you light a white candle, kneel before it, say the Our Father, the Guardian Angel prayer, and then hum a low note until your breath is gone. After that, blow out the candle, inhale some smoke, and the first name that pops in your head is the name of your Guardian Angel.
I got really excited and tried it as soon as I got home. The name I got was Kendra. I was really excited and talked to my "angel." But after three days, things got weird.
My youngest brother began waking up every night at three am, claiming to hear someone moving around downstairs. I heard voices in my room at night. Things went missing. That kind of thing. I guess I never made connections, but I was only 15.
It stopped after a week or two, but then I started talking to Kendra again. Little things like how my day went, what was bothering me, those kinds of things. Again, weird things happened. I felt like someone was folowing me. Something cold and heavy. Bad things happened to those close to me. Mom sprained her back, my Dad began to have weird fits of anger, and I just couldn't shake whatever was following me.
These episodes happen off and on every three months or so, but only for 1-2 weeks each time. I'm wondering if maybe that innocent "ritual" my grandma told me about attached something weird to me? Or am I paranoid?

=== OPINION THREAD ===
Has anyone seen the new movie:
The Conjuring - ?
I just saw that movie last night. I've been hearing a lot of really mixed reviews, mainly either that's it's 2spookey4me or shit.
Personally I fucking loved it, whether it really is based upon a true story or not. I do know that the Warren family is real; I did a bit of research on them years ago.
I was surprised at the lack of audience though. There couldn't have been more than 30 people in the theater. For being a new movie, that's a little surprising.
So, as it's relevant, I'd like /x/'s opinion.
TL;DR - Anyone see The Conjuring, and if so what did you guys think about it?
Pronunciation Book Thread
2 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: bored.png]
There's a youtube channel called Pronunciation Book (youtube.com/pronunciationbook) that, since like 2010, has been uploading simple videos that are just 1) black text on white screen and 2) a voice pronouncing the text. It has dozens of millions of total views, and is pretty well-known (I first saw it back in 2011, and there's a parody of it that intentionally mispronouncs words).
A few days ago it started posting numbers, starting with 77, and counting down each day. But instead of pronouncing the numbers, it is saying sentences like "I have been trying to tell you something for a thousand days". I am very rarely creeped out any more, and I guess this isn't really "creepy" but it certainly is unexpected.
I refuse to believe that this is marketing, because no one would make a fake business literally for years just to market something. I also refuse to believe that this is a troll, because if so, I tip my hat, he's been doing it so long.
TLDR PronunciationBook, a channel on youtube, has apparently been trying to communicate through single words/phrases since 2010.

Hello /x/, were having a debate at college tomorrow, and the teacher told me and 3 friends that we have to defend theocracy. The problem is 3 of us are atheists. Could any of you, religious or not, give any arguments we coud use? I personally think its the worst system ever, but i guess thats why the teacher told us to do it.

Last night, I think I spoke to what you people call 'The listener'.
Here's the conversation I had with this person.
You're now chatting with a random stranger. Say hi!
You both like Demons.
Stranger: Why do you have demons in your interests?
You: Because I've been interested in Demons for a very long time.
Stranger: Have you?
Stranger: How did you become interested in them?
You: Through various stories I've been told a child. I've always enjoyed Christianity, and Satanism, along side with the summoning of them through Ouiji boards.
Stranger: Ah, I see.
Stranger: I find theology to be interesting as well.
You: That's pretty cool.
You: The most interesting of these stories I like are about the Fallen Angels.
Stranger: Yes, they are interesting stories. Not the most...accurate, though.
You: do you believe in the Angel Of Death?
Stranger: Yes. He goes by the name of Samael.
You: Is Samael the Correct name?
Stranger: Yes, why do you ask?
Stranger: There are other angels of death, like Azrael, though.
You: Do you know what they look like?
Stranger: Yes...why do you ask?
You: I've always wanted to know what they look like.
