11 Mysterious Things Caught on Tape in TEXAS

11 Mysterious Things Caught on Tape in TEXAS

August 18, 2019 100 By William Hollis


Texas has really been on my mind a lot lately,
and I wanted to honor the state in my own way with a countdown. I respectfully dedicate
this list to everyone who has been affected by Hurricane Harvey. If you’d like to help
with the relief efforts, links will be posted below. 11. “The Gamer Ghost”: This alleged ghost
was caught on video rummaging around the property of an arcade in Dallas The phantom blob glides over the grass and
quickly fits through an entranceway. It’s pretty convincing to me. Here’s a second
video of it. This looks like a cheaper camera, but it picks up the same shape. The only possible
explanation I have besides the paranormal is maybe an insect is crawling across the
lens. 10. “The Institute of Texan Cultures”:
This famous museum in San Antonio has many pieces of history and a wealth of strange
occurrences at night. Workers often hear their name called, have their clothing tugged on,
and sometimes see a transparent ghost that they think originated from one of the many
ancient Native American artifacts on display, or maybe even the sacred land that the museum
was built upon. Here’s another video taken one night showing
a door pop open for no reason at all. This wasn’t a regular door either. It was
a locked security vault and nobody was near. I guess this could be a publicity stunt to
draw visitors to the Institute, but I doubt they would disrespect Native American culture
by faking all of this. Or at least I hope not. 9. “The Alamo”: These books appear to
be flying of the shelf all by themselves at an Alamo [“Al-a-mo”] gift shop after hours. It’s hard to tell if they were truly pulled
out by a ghost or if someone was just pushing them out from the other side of the shelf
and playing a prank. We’ll never know for sure, but if this were to happen anywhere
in Texas, then a historical site like the Alamo would be a very likely location. 8. “The Marfa Lights”: These strange lights
have been floating around in the desert for years with no reasonable explanation. But floating is not all they can do. These
lights are also known to change sizes, split apart, merge, and disappear at random. Sometimes
they even seem to land on the ground and travel at high rates of speed, which makes some people
suspect that they are U F Os. I personally have no idea what these lights
could be, but maybe we can figure it out together. Some people say that it’s a natural phenomenon
that’s caused by a build-up of electricity. However, I don’t see any obvious weather
disturbances in any of these videos. 7. “Ghost Prints”: These railroad tracks
in San Antonio are said to be notoriously haunted by the spirits of schoolchildren after
an incident with their bus and a train. Even though no such incident is officially on record,
a lot of locals still believe in the legend. One of them is Yazmin Mendez, who even says
that she has video proof to back it up. She recorded a paranormal experiment with
some interesting results. Here’s what you have to do: first, put baby powder all over
your car and then slowly drive across the tracks. Sometimes childlike handprints appear
on the car from the ghost children as they touch your car, like Yazmin says happened
here. I definitely see what she means, but at the
same time, I couldn’t help but notice that real kids were standing all around both cars.
It could be just a coincidence, but it could also be their handprints instead of a ghost’s.
But even still, there are plenty of other people who say that they have successfully
replicated this experiment, so this video definitely could be real. Let me know if you
believe the results of this Texas ghost test. 6. “The River Monster”: Okay, so this
is the size of an ordinary gar fish . . . And this is the size of one when you live
in Texas . . . This gigantic specimen is estimated to be
about 60 years old and weighs about 200 pounds. They eat just about everything in sight and
their only predator (besides humans) are alligators. Nothing else is big enough to stand against
them. They are basically living dinosaurs and definitely one of the most mysterious
species to be found lurking in Texan waters, so tread carefully. 5. “Dry Creek Grave yard”: There’s a
grave yard in the community of Poetry that is famous for a very strange phenomenon: flashlight-controlling
ghosts. Apparently spirits will sometimes take control of flashlights in this area,
apparently using them to communicate with the living and answer basic questions. What’s really weird to me is how the light
slowly fades away instead of turning straight off like normal. And this isn’t the only video I’ve found
where this happens: Can somebody explain how this is happening
if it’s not being caused by the paranormal? You can’t see the bottom of the flashlight
in the second video, so maybe their hand is still on it, but nobody is touching the flashlight
in the first video, so that one looks especially real. And if you have ever tried this at Dry Creek
Grave yard, then we would definitely like to read what happened to you next, so please
let us know in the comments section. 4. “The Seat”: A simple couch may seem
like the last thing in the world that you would ever be afraid of, but there’s a used
one for sale in Waco [“Way-co”] that everyone is too chicken to buy. That’s because strange
things happen to anyone who goes near it. It all started when a customer simply dropped
the couch off over a decade ago because it caused too many bad things to happen to his
personal life, though he didn’t care to explain exactly how. The first thing that
the storeowner noticed, aside from the nervous mannerisms of the person who dropped it off,
was that he himself felt weird when he sat on it. The cursed furniture also smelled like
sulfur [“sul-fer”] – a pungent stench that is usually associated with the under
world. Despite all of this, he decided to put it
on the sales floor anyway. Soon doors all around the store began to open on their own
and no cell phone signal could be found when people tried to use them within the general
vicinity of the couch. That’s not all. After two workers touched
the couch, they were both separately involved in incidents with their cars. There’s also
a dark red stain under the cushions, when it was DNA-tested, and a hole that could have
been caused by a discharged round. Exactly what happened on this couch is anyone’s
guess. 3. “Samantha Stares Back”: The Driskill
[“Dris-skill”] Hotel is one of the most legendarily haunted hotels in all of Texas.
This is where you’ll find a painting of a senator’s four-year-old daughter named
Samantha, who supposedly fell down a flight of steps at the hotel and met her end. Her
soul is said to reside in the painting now, and she will change facial expressions if
you look at her for long enough. Just look at happens when this YouTuber named
Emily takes a glance at the painting. After freaking out for a bit, Emily bravely
walks back up to the picture and takes another look. Try to examine the picture when the
camera zooms in on it and tell me if you see Samantha’s eyes move. I personally do not
see it, but maybe I’m missing something. If you want to find out what else this painting
can supposedly do, then be sure check out my other video called “7 Haunted Paintings”. 2. “Hugo’s House of Horrors”: A YouTuber
named HugoBlog is curiously poking around an old abandoned mansion with his friends
in Houston [“Hew-stin”] as they search for nothing in particular. The crumbling estate
looks like it can fall on their heads at any minute, but they bravely keep going in as
deep as they dare. I don’t speak any Spanish, but I tell by
their voices that they get weirded out by something and decide to leave. Later they
are all reviewing the video of their exploration along with some digital pictures when one
still shot in particular grabs their attention. Can you see the silhouette of a girl peering
at them through the railing? I definitely can. Another YouTuber named Luis Gomez says that
he went there too, and that his camera picked up two children standing in a doorway looking
at him, much like the photo you just saw. But this story gets much weirder than that.
There’s a bunch of text at the end of the video that says someone met their end in the
house. Nobody was able to find the person responsible. I wasn’t sure if I believed this story,
so I did some Googling and I managed to find the exact same text on a Houston police blotter.
The police gave an address, and when I put it into Google maps, it took me back to the
house in the video. In other words, the story is real and somebody
really did meet their end at this location. Nobody knows why. Needless to say, HugoBlog
has not been back since. Before we get to number 1, my name is Chills

what something called a “kissing bug” is doing at number 1 until you realize that
this is what it’s version of a “kiss” is. These bugs are known for doing the same thing
as mosquitos but on people’s faces at night, especially on their lips (hence their name).
As this bug helps itself to your face, it is also potentially spreading a nasty ailment
called Chagas [“Sha-gahs”]. The C D C recently released a report that
says you have a 30% chance of getting Chagas in your lifetime. If this happens, you could
feel fine for months before displaying any ill effects, and even then these effects might
be mild at first. You could feel fatigued and feverish, and you might think you have
a bad flu when really the bug’s ailment is just working its way deeper into your body. It can lay dormant in your system for decades
before striking. It could make your heart increase in size so badly that it doesn’t
beat properly anymore, or your entire digestive system could grow so large that you can’t
even stand to eat or use the facilities anymore from the horrible cramps all throughout your
body. This ailment can take your life if it is not
detected early enough, and even if it is detected, it might still be too late to completely get
rid of. You can only control it with things that are so powerful that only the CDC is
allowed to administer them, and even these come with alarming side effects that nobody
would want to have. And to think, all of this can come from a simple bug bite in the state
of Texas. Thanks for checking out this video. Be sure
