mine is kansas so ill post the story for that


KANSAS -- GATEWAY TO HELL

The small town of Stull, Kansas, has a notorious reputation. It is said that its small cemetery, and a place halfway around the world in India, are the only two spots on Earth where Satan appears in person, having been materializing there since the 1850s. The evidence? Visitors to the Stull Cemetery tell of being assaulted by a strong wind that fixes them to the ground, temporary paralyzing them. Interestingly, the town's name was changed from Skull to cover its association with black magic.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

Wednesday, 3rd. September, 1862

“I make further note that on this journey, we passed by the place near to the river where it joins the lake as shown to us on the last expedition by the Dhilumi Clan of the strange rock ruins and ...(unclear)... and I ventured then to visit the small ceremonial Dhurs at the place of the rock columns and ruins. It was an eerie place, but somewhat beautiful as the point jutted out into the lake, taking view of all directions, I make observation that no similar placement of rings were seen at the stone structure in the Valley of Wolvi. I refrained from entering the ancient site of the rings for I knew them to be special - I took to view the place and further observe the strange stone structures”.

I've never heard of it ( the ruins, not the lake) either, but the idea it slips out of sight after an earthquake right before the eyes of the explorer is a little hard to digest, imo.

I encourage you to get your teeth into it. Apparently, there is also a pyramid under the silt at Lake Cootharaba which is a doorway to Andromeda. It is terribly mysterious...

The earthquakes are quoted in a Government report:

In comparison to the time-scale of geological processes, the recorded history of earthquake activity in Queensland is too brief to obtain an accurate estimate of the true rate of earthquake activity in the area. According to Rynn (1987) the first earthquake report for Queensland was from Cape York Peninsula in 1866. However, recent research indicates that apparently there were significant earthquakes in 1861 and 1862.

Come visit the Oregon Vortex!

The fat cats in Washington want you to think it's just a bunch of optical illusions and magnets buried in the ground, but the people in the know are certain it's a hole into another universe where our laws of physics don't apply! Who are you going to believe? A bunch of eggheads or your never-lying eyes?

While visiting Southern Oregon be sure to also visit... oh I guess that's all we have down there.

*rolls eyes at the only entry listed for Louisiana on the OP's link*

I'll look up something in my Weird Louisiana book and get back with you on this. ;)

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

Coral Castle.  Also the fact that people choose to vacation in the middle of the state during the late summer months.

Ok, here in South Carolina we had a guy who was having sex with a horse. He got sent to jail, horse complained she hasn't gotten a card, letter or phone call from him since.

No, not a big mystery, but what a love story, eh?
