Witnesses reported sightings of a grotesque creature, sparking rumors that the true culprit was something much more sinister than any predator they had ever seen before.

Four students leaving a party. A dark street. A short walk back to campus. But for one college freshman, the person trusted to walk her home seems to be the reason she was never seen again.

A horrific murder ripped through a Queens neighborhood and the killer was finally caught. After a failed defense, the murderer was sentenced to death, but that was not the end for him or for Kitty’s story.

For 50 years, psychology textbooks used the tragic story of a murdered young woman to teach students about the devastating impact of inaction by neighbors. The magic number - 38 - was chosen by the media as the number of careless onlookers who heard the woman’s demise in real-time and did nothing. But the true story of what happened that night teaches us that even when there are bystanders, there are still plenty of helpers willing to come running when they’re called to aid a beloved friend.

I always hate it when city people explain to country people what a dead animal is. We know. We live with them.

The problem with Monsterquest is they can't confirm the creature because they will be laughed at by the media and scientific community at large and they can't debunk the creature, even if they know what it is, because that destroys the mystery. Same exact show every episode just change the creature. The safari hunt is laughable because every teen from the town messes with their camp and they blame the creature. We've got a very wary creature so let's send out a huge and loud team to sneak up on it.

The argument about the Trinity is about the very identity and nature of God. There is little more important

The woman is a nut but it was very popular for traveling Christian speakers to switch to diet in the 90s. One Church I know of booked a famous prophecy speaker a year ahead of time only to have him rail against Big Macs. It was not well received. Paul said if any preach another gospel than Christ crucified let him be accused.

The New Testament was written during the Roman empire and slavery is mentioned often. You can't read our current American views into it. Many of the characters are slaves. The view is You are either a bondservant of Christ or a slave to sin. You will have a master

Just a side comment (I haven't heard the whole thing yet), I'd only ever heard Wonderland was about Jessica Simpson which, at the time makes the most sense. Thanks, ladies. 😊

It was getting quite sad not seeing a new episode for a couple weeks (again... so soon, but who had a baby this time?). I finally had it and clicked the cast and ta-da they have moved! And now there are a few episodes to binge. I guess that’s worth the inconvenience!
