Something strange is starting to happen in my house. Is it possible to subconsciously control other people into doing what you want. This seems to be happening a lot recently and it's too spot on for it to be just coincidence.
Incidents in the last two days:
1. while playing SSBB with my brother, he suddenly asks if i want to take a lunch break. When i'm finished eating i notice my brother has just been sitting there waiting for me; said he wasn't hungry, just thought i might be. We had just eaten an hour or two ago at the same time and there was no reason for him to think i was hungry, but it's all i could think about while we were playing.
2. My sister had been playing her music loud as fuck. yesterday i'd was so annoyed and just wanted to go yell at her to turn it the hell down. When she went to the bathroom, she had disconnected her iPod from her speakers and brought it with her, only to conveniently drop it in the toilet and break it.
3. Today i was sitting here on my couch lurking /x/ and my sisters decided to put on Christmas movies, this pissed me off, I'm an asshole and their loud ass movie was annoying. My 11mo niece was in the same room sitting near me trying to pull my laptop charger; in my mind i was thinking i wish she would break the bluray player instead (she breaks fucking everything). Sure enough she slobbered all over the remote and our bluray player doesn't even have a play button. It's useless until the remote works again.
4. My mom made some cookies last night; she made a shit ton of huge ones, but also made an entire batch of smaller ones with only chocolate chips for my niece. In my mind i was thinking, why the fuck does she need a whole jar of cookies for herself? earlier today my mom snuck two from the jar and gave me the last two, completely out of character for her to do something like this.
I don't want to subconsciously control people, i'm a selfish asshole so nothing good can come from it. Am i just paranoid?
The Nelson Mandela/New Zealand Effect

Nelson Mandela died AGAIN.
> He died in the '90s (in prison)
> Then he died in 2002
> Then he died in 2009
> Then he died a year ago.
And now he's dying AGAIN. Has Nelson Mandela ever been asked to explain this phenomenon?! Or is he actually literally dead now?!? This is really retarded to happen over and over again.
Another really annoying thing is the position of New Zealand. It's the same exact thing - in the '90s and earlier, what made New Zealand unique from every other large populated island was that it was the farthest from a continent and it was northeast - it was NEVER so close to Australia that they could be shown together. It was so far that you wouldn't pair them together, but ever since the late thousands - they're neighbors and New Zealand is now South East of Australia - going against what we used to know about that island. Fiji also looks too close in the picture. That used to be in the middle of nowhere, too.
If somebody can explain either of these phenomenons or any other time/space anomalies, by all means, tell us about them.

Creepy Unsolved Crimes Thread

It's that time again, /x/.
Put on your trench-coats and Fedoras and light up a cigarette in a dimly-lit office with a shot glass of fine liquor, it’s time for a creepy unsolved crimes thread.
I know we had a thread like this semi-recently, but people enjoyed it even more than usual, and it seemed to end a little prematurely. So, what’s the harm in trying again? Maybe this needs to become a more regular event on /x/.
Unexplained disappearances. Perpetrators vanishing without a trace. “Suspicious” suicides. Bizarre, ritualized murders and messages from an anonymous killer. Indecipherable pieces of evidence. Incomprehensible acts of theft and terrorism. Horrific acts of violence with no apparent motive. Inexplicable or even supernatural elements to crime that defy conventional understanding. Tales of corrupt officials and conspiracies, tampering with evidence and suppressing the truth. Abduction, torture, ritual-murder, human-trafficking, secret societies and more.
Rookie Mode: Post a Wikipedia link.
Veteran Mode: Post a Wikipedia link AND a green-text summary in this thread that explains why the crime/event is so creepy, and inspires people to go and read the Wiki article.
As per usual, I’ll post some great copy-pasta from the previous iterations of this thread to get things started, and to keep this thread alive if things get slow.

What if only a few atheists go to heaven?
A religious person believes his deeds won't go unpunished, be it bad karma or hell, if he doesn't behave like a good person he will be punished in the afterlife.
The only people with real intrinsic altruism are atheists, who do what they do because it's right, and not because they fear eternal torture or because longing for compensation like eternal pleasure in the afterlife.
I mean even the most evil being and monster would behave and be "good" if he seriously believed he'd be tortured for all eternity otherwise. It has nothing to do with being a nice person if you are religious and are nice, just with some basic planning skills, your deeds say nothing about your true character.
But now take an atheist who is a good person despite believing it's all for nothing. He's just a nice guy, for no other reason than because it's nice to be nice. Doing good deeds for no reward, refraining from doing evil not out of fear of punishment, being good because it's right, wouldn't someone like he be among Gods chosen people?

OK, this is strange.
I've become convinced that my Zoloft is causing me to jump to another dimension that is just slightly, slightly, slightly better than this one.
So I doubled the dose today and I won over 1,000 dollars in a recognition award I didn't expect to win!
Philip K. Dick talked about KR-3, a dimension-jumping drug, in Flow My a Tears, the Policeman Said.
I'm starting to believe him.
Are antidepressants working because you jump to another dimension?

I was the only one there when my brother died. Today would have been his birthday, if he was still alive, and lately I haven't been able to get him out of my head. Little Joel, seven years old forever. Because of me, because I couldn't resist my curiosity about those damned woods, that damned house. Because I wouldn't go alone.
I've replayed the events of that terrible day over and over again, tried to make sense of it. I never told anyone what really happened, I lied. I told them we got separated in the woods and I couldn't find him. That I searched for hours until it grew dark, and finally went home hoping he was already there. A flimsy story, but believable enough. Certainly I must have looked haggard enough, exhausted enough for my parents to believe the lie.
The police, my family, my neighbors, they combed the woods for weeks hoping to find some trace of him, a scrap of clothing, a shoe. Anything. I helped too, though I knew there was no hope. Because he wasn't lost, not in that sense at least. Something took him. Something that wasn't a man, something that wasn't an animal either.
It could have been me it found, shivering in that closet on the second floor. Could have been both of us, if we had hidden together. Just dumb luck. That phrase, repeating in my head: Just dumb luck, could have been me. Survivor's guilt, I think they call it. I'm writing this... I guess you could call it a confession, out of the dim hope that it will alleviate that guilt somewhat to finally tell the truth, to tell what really happened. I doubt you'll believe me either, you'll probably just regard it as just another campfire story, something to scare the kids before bedtime. That's OK, you don't have to believe me, but please, would you just listen to my story?

Want to know why Stephen King's Dark Tower series goes to shit towards the end?
A lot of the first five books are littered with occult truths of the Illuminated Ones. As a bestseller, King assumed himself untouchable, and began his self-described magnum opus hoping to shed some light on the inner secrets of reality. The big boys got scared, though. It's likely the upper echelons, concerned as they are with the greater fabric of the universe, began to worry that one day they'd be staring down the barrel of a wasteland cowboy's hand-cannon. The official story within the Sleepers, however, is that King was giving aid and succor to the Rainmakers.
So King gets "hit by a truck". And if you're still reading this, you've probably read the last few books of the Dark Tower after that. Suddenly, the strange death of the central character in order to
save King's life in the real world at the time of this "accident" makes far more sense as an extended metaphor.

The secret of Thelema and A?A? exposed. The KEY
22 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: troll-face-meme-generator(...).jpg]
The A?A? is a magical order that was created in 1907 by Aleister Crowley and George Cecil Jones after they left the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. The acronym, A?A?, has been assigned many sources (its true meaning is revealed only to initiates); some proposed meanings are incorrect (see table below), though it is unequivocably understood to correspond to the English phrase "Silver Star'. The order is a Thelemic magical fraternity, the goals of which are the pursuit of light and knowledge. Its motto is: "The method of science, the aim of religion." The holy book of the order is Liber AL vel Legis (in English, The Book of the Law). While the A ?A? is not part of Ordo Templi Orientis, O.T.O. does consider the A?A? to be a close ally.
What does A?A? mean, /x/? What is the logical construction? Why do alt numpad codes map to symbols in the way they do, such as •???
Game over capitalism. Can't stop the funk, you can't stop the funk. Logical necessity don't real.
