Police discovers suspect in secret room

Stock speculator “Antique Chang” was wanted by the police, who suspect that he has fraudulently driven up the prices of some stocks. Chang designed his house with secret passageways and hidden rooms so that he could evade arrest, but sharp-eyed investigators caught him with the help of his own CCTV cameras.

We’re not sure whether Chang should have built a secret pocket within his secret tunnel that’s his way out of the secret chamber of his not-so-secret house. Meanwhile, see what UK was planning on doing with CCTV surveillance videos back in July.

England’s ‘most haunted’ house up for auction

Wymering manor, which some consider to be England’s ‘most haunted’ house, will be going up for auction. In addition to the property, the house’s 30 resident ghosts will be included in the sale. The spooky property is more than a thousand years old and used to be a monastery. Fortunately, it seems the ghosts are of the friendly variety:

The building has gained a reputation among ghost hunters for high levels of paranormal activity, including sudden drops in temperature and strange apparitions. A former resident, David Scanlan, found the living and the dead got along fine.

He said the spirits ‘seem to be quite nice and quite friendly and it’s almost like we get on with them and they tolerate us’.

Will you ever consider staying in Wymering Manor if it gets turned into a hotel? Let us know in the comments!

Doctor indicted for mixed baby scam

A Taiwanese doctor and two friends were indicted for violating reproduction laws after police found they had arranged fake marriages with Uzbek women in order to satisfy their fascination with mixed-race babies.
Prosecutors requested a two year sentence for the ringleader, while lighter sentences were sought for his two accomplices.

Interesting Fact: Many people in Taiwan are fascinated by mixed-race kids because they are different. Why? Think about it. Every kid born here has black hair and brown eyes, so when you come across a kid with blond hair, or different colored eyes they immediately stand out from the crowd. It’s understandable, but these guys took the phenomenon to its extreme.

Lingerie thief mistaken for ghost

A Taipei-area woman thought she saw a ghost in her storage room. The “ghost” turned out to be a lingerie enthusiast trying on her bra and panties. When the woman found out that the intruder was a pantie thief rather than a malevolent spirit, she was furious. “I just bought those,” she said, “now I don’t want to wear them.” In his haste to flee the scene, the lingerie enthusiast left behind all his clothes and a bag with his ID inside.

Did you know that the seventh month of the lunar calendar is traditionally the Ghost Month here in Taiwan? For one month out of the year, the gates of the underworld are open ghosts are free to roam among the living. Although not all ghosts are bad, it’s just as well to appease them to be on the safe side. Every year before the doors to the underworld close again, we throw the ghosts a huge party to send them off.

Australia goes to the polls

The Labor Party swept to victory in 2007, with Kevin Rudd coming into power as Prime Minister. For a while, Rudd was enormously popular, but his plans to institute a new tax on mining companies and his failure to implement the government’s emission trading scheme caused his popularity to plummet. The Labor party rose up against their wounded leader. In the end, he was replaced by his deputy, Julia Gillard. In this weekend’s election, Gillard’s toughest rival is Tony Abbott, leader of the Liberal Party. Abbott promised to be tough on immigration if he becomes Prime Minister. Although polls show Abbott way ahead of Gillard, the Labor/Green party coalition still has more support when counted together. ‘Crocodile Harry’ has predicted a Labor victory. This is the closest election in Australia in 50 years.
