Rant of the Week: “How Do You Spell Oija?”

Every week we pick the wackiest, scariest, nastiest or funniest rant from the
hundreds of letters received by us here at ParaScope headquarters, and present
it to you as our Rant of the Week. This week, “Davidson” ponders the spelling
capabilities of portals to the netherworld. Enjoy.

“Religious groups say that ouija boards are from the Devil. If you have a
bunch of baptists over and want to get rid of them, pull out the ouija. They
say that using that type of device will bring Satan or some demon into your
life. I have used ouija boards a few times, and it seems to me that it is
either my hand or the hands of one of the others touching the pointer that do
the actual moving. You want a certain answer and pull the pointer
subconsciously to the answer you want. I find it interesting that the ouija
board can never spell better that the person asking the question. There are
those who actually believe that these devices can contact the spirit world or

All rants are printed “as is,” with spelling and grammar goofs left
uncorrected. Some rants may be edited for brevity or clarity, to the extent

Alias Carlos Allende:
The Mystery Man Behind the Philadelphia Experiment

The key figure in the bizarre saga of the Philadelphia Experiment is a man
known as Carlos Allende, who claimed to witness the teleportation of the USS
Eldridge at the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard on August 15, 1943. Allende
reported his experiences to a UFO book author, and his story became one of the
most popular unexplained legends of the 20th century. But who was Carlos
Allende? ParaScope is pleased to present this classic article from FATE
Magazine, in which Robert A. Goerman revealed the elusive individual to be
Carl Allen, a "master leg-puller" from Pennsylvania who single-handedly
fabricated the Philadelphia Experiment


Photo Gallery: Edgewood Guinea Pigs

Between 1955 and 1975, Army Intelligence used 7,000 enlisted soldiers as human
guinea pigs for experiments involving a wide array of biological and chemical
warfare agents. Approximately 3,500 of these soldiers were given doses of
powerful mind-altering psychochemicals, including LSD, PCP, BZ and
scopolomine. These "volunteer" test subjects were not told which drugs they
were given, and were not fully informed of the extreme physical and
psychological effects these drugs would have on them. Take a peek behind the
walls of Edgewood Arsenal with this special ParaScope photo gallery, featuring
images from U.S. Army documentary footage of the experiments. "Edg wood Guinea
Pigs" can be found in ParaScope's image gallery, or accessed directly at:
