August 2016 Discussion Post: Which Creepypasta Do You Most Fear?

This month’s discussion topic is a mash-up of two suggestions, from Anonymous and Mockingbird: The way I see it, it’s likely that whichever creepypasta you personally find the most unsettling probably matches up with the creepypasta that you’d least want to be real – or at the very least, there’s probably some serious overlap, right? …

June 2015 Discussion Post: Do You Believe in Divination?

Last month’s discussion post about superstition was a lot of fun to read! June’s post will be tangentially related: this month I want to know if you believe in divination.

This month’s topic is a logical progression for that line of questioning: Which topics and …
