Estate of Man by Nick Hyde (1971)
As someone old enough to vaguely remember when the whole high/low cultural divide was kind of settled, its vehement revival these days, especially with regard to books, is befuddling.
If you think the “highbrow/lowbrow literature” debate is a bunch of bullshit, and have reasonably adventurous reading tastes, then you’ll probably like this article.
This youtuber explores abandoned mines. He states that the Horton mine located in Nevada was one of his creepiest experiences. As he ventures further down the tunnel he feels the presence of something negative & unwordly. He sees one of the chains swinging by itself. Just one chain, none of the others are moving. The chain’s movement is pretty irregular also. The moment he said he didn’t feel comfortable in there the chain started to be yanked slightly harder to the right as if indicating excitement. Most take this video as a legit paranormal file. (Video)
There’s a part two to this. He went back. There’s the follow up.
I have no fear of ghosts, but exploring abandoned mines is a NO NO.
those things were built for temporary access, the goal was to gut the earth of everything of value then leave
no fucking shit things start moving by themselves, you’ve got tons of rock crushing a gouge that was haphazardly torn out with explosives
I love how he attributed a sudden gust of air to paranormal activity, when that actually means that a pocket just opened up
like somewhere in the mine a collapse just happened, which means a further collapse could be imminent, or even there’s a bunch of toxic gas being pushed up or down towards your tunnel
The term Canary in a Coalmine comes from the practice of having small birds at junctions in mines, as a protection from gassing deaths. Birds have a much lower tolerance for toxic gas, so if the canary was dead, it was time to bail. A carbon dioxide or methane leak occurred somewhere, and due to the way that gasses behave, just started flooding the mine.
At least he had the sense to leave after that, cuz holy shit.
I have no fear of ghosts either, but I think the thing people are looking at is that only the one chain is moving that much. I can understand a collapse causing the movement, but I’d figure a similar movement would be in all of the other chains too. Then again, I don’t know the layout of that area and I don’t know the physics behind it all.
But do heed this man’s words, everyone. Mines are the place to not be.
Yeah, but all the chains are swaying to some degree, so there’s obviously some shifting in the ceiling and they’re placed far apart. I’m willing to bet each chain is attached to a load-bearing support, and that particular support is getting worked over harder than the others.
Gamers can be such utter babies sometimes.
I felt this needed sound.
the skeleton war isn’t for everybody. some skeletons just want to dress up as meat products and direct you to the pharmacy and that’s okay
