Man Kept All His Nail Clippings In A Jar — Since 1978

Richard Gibson keeps his most cherished item on a shelf in his Lafayette, Louisianaa, home.

It’s not a picture of his loved ones, nor a prized trophy, it’s a jar containing every single toenail and fingernail he’s clipped off himself since February, 1978.

“I remember it well. I still have the manicure kit,” he told The Huffington Post.

Gibson, a 58-year-old oil investor, was clipping his toenails when he decided to put the clippings into the manicure box instead of the trash can.

“I started doing it again and again and then decided to see how long it would take to fill the box,” he said proudly.

It took only two years to fill the box, but by then he was hooked, and moved his collection to the glass jar he currently uses.

“I have no idea how many nails are in the jar,” Gibson said. “It’s well into the thousands.”

Gibson’s commitment to his keratin collection hasn’t been easy at times. He says his ex-wife used to insist he hide the jar when visitors came to the house.

However, it’s finally paid off: A picture of Gibson proudly holding the jar appears in the newest Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! book, “Reality Shock!” debuting Sept. 9.

“I haven’t told her,” he said. “I’m waiting until I can show her the book. She’s always been annoyed by them.”

Gibson figures the jar is 99 percent full, but hasn’t thought about what to do when the last toenail reaches the tippy-top.

“I don’t know what I’ll do,” he said. “I’ll probably put them into something else. I’ve got enough room for several more months worth of nails.”

Surprisingly, he has no set schedule for adding to the jar.

“I only cut them when I break a fingernail or toenail,” he said. “I don’t cut them that often — they’re long.”

Nails are the only clippings Gibson collects. He is a longtime fan of Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! who has submitted 70,000 weird facts for inclusion in the popular column.

“I’ve had 750 of them printed, but this is the first time I’ve made it into one of the books,” he said. “It’s not like winning an Oscar, but I am proud.”

Nigerian Parents Arrested After Teen Son Dies During Religious Fast

Published

on

A Nigerian couple have been arrested in the US after their 15-year-old son reportedly died during a 40-day religious fast.

Kehinde Omosebi, 49, and Titilayo Omosebi, 48, of Reedsburg, were on Tuesday charged with child neglect causing death and child neglect causing great bodily harm.

The father was said to have walked to the Reedburg police station on Sunday, to report his son had died on Friday, Chief Timothy Becker said.

Investigators who went to the Omosebi home reportedly had to force their way in, as the doors was padlocked on the inside. No food was discovered in the home. They found the “extremely emaciated and deceased” teenager, and also found a gaunt 11-year-old child, along with his mother, Titilayo, who was also undernourished, according to the report.

The father, Kehinde, told authorities that the family began fasting on July 19, and that he was a “religious minister affiliated with Cornerstone Reformation Ministries,” which is believed by police to have been made up.

The mother and 11-year-old were transported to a hospital. The mother reportedly refused medical treatment due to religious reasons, and was taken to the Sauk County Jail.

The child remains in protective custody at Children’s Hospital in Madison, while, according to Becker, the parents are eating while in jail.

This Illuminati Conspiracy Theory Of Celebrities With Black Eyes Will Shock You..

Published

on

A bizarre conspiracy theory has emerged suggesting that celebrities seen sporting a black left eye are part of the Illuminati. Former US President George W. Bush, along with the Pope, Prince Philip and Prince Andrew, have all also been photographed with black eyes.

According to some conspiracy theorists, the black left eye is part of a cult or ‘Illuminati’ high-level initiation ritual during which the pledger is said to be forced to ‘eat pain’ in a quest to become more powerful.

Author and internet radio show host Sherry Shriner –  who wrote the book Interview With The Devil, in which she claimed to converse with Lucifer – has spoken of the link between these black eyes and ‘soul scalping’.

According to Shriner, government leaders, people on TV with their own shows and hundreds of popular entertainers have sold their souls to Satan.

‘You cannot be on TV now, without signing on the dotted line. The bizarre recurrence of facial bruises on Illuminati politicians and entertainers has resulted in speculation that their souls have been replaced in a satanic ritual called “soul scalping”,’ she said.

Shriner, who died earlier this year, believed all the powerful people in the world have been soul scalped.

She said that this can one done in a number of ritualistic ways, all of which result in a ‘possession’, whereby the human soul is removed and the body taken over by the demonic entity.

In conspiracy circles, this process is also known as a ‘walk-in’. Some people believe the blackened eye is a result of soul scalping.

Meanwhile, celebrities have come up with various explanations for how they got their black eyes over the years.

The Pope was said to have hit his eye when riding through the streets of Cartagena, Columbia in the ‘Pope-mobile’ last year.

Several news reports stated that he had made a joke about the injury, saying that he’d been punched.

Conspiracy theorists have pointed out that even members of the royal family have been spotted with black eyes over the years.

Some researchers suggest a link between the bearers of black eyes to the worship of the Egyptian sun god Horus, whose left eye was black and represented the moon and whose right eye was white and represented the sun.
