Wow, I really don’t know what to say about this one. Usually stories you hear like this are on the level of Daily Mail fodder or one of those Onion-esque websites where the story turns out to be total bullshit. THIS story, however, coming out of Westfield, NJ is very, very real and it’s truly creepy as hell.

A NJ family has abandoned their $1.3 million home after receiving terrifying letters from someone named “The Watcher.” Since moving in, the family has received numerous written letters from The Watcher claiming the home “has been the subject of my family for decades,” and “I have been put in charge of watching and waiting for its second coming.” Good gawd! I’d get the hell out of there, too!

The new owners have several children, and other letters asked, “Have they found out what’s in the walls yet?” and “I am pleased to know your names now, and the name of the young blood you have brought to me,” Castro reported.

The bone-chilling letters were enough to send the new family packing. The incident was so unnerving that Westfield Mayor Andy Skibitsky addressed the issue at a Town Council meeting Tuesday night.

The owners of the home are preparing to sue the previous owners claiming the old owners knew about The Watcher and didn’t disclose that information to them before buying the house.

If anyone has any information on The Watcher, you’re encouraged to contact the Westfield police.

German man follows divorce rules and gives his ex-wife literally HALF of everything

“The car is quite well preserved for its age, but there are some signs of wear. In particular, half is missing”
 

“Thank you for 12 ‘beautiful years,’ Laura! You’ve really earned half. Greetings also to my successor.” ~ Der Juli

As we all know, divorce can get really, really nasty. Like really nasty. Case in point, one man in Germany who goes by the name “Der Juli” online, is giving his ex-wife, Laura, exactly half by lovingly sawing in half all of their joint assets. She gets her half and he gets his half. Makes perfect sense, right?

According to reports, there are hints that Laura was apparently unfaithful and that’s why Der Juli is so pissed off. Der Juli is currently selling his half on eBay with each item having a write-up detailing its use.

All I can say is thank goodness they didn’t have any children or pets. I’ll just leave it at that.

No word from Laura. Yet.


“In my opinion, this conversion is the perfect solution for users who want to save space, but can not afford a MacBook Air”
 

“The wheel moves despite minor limitations, and the front brake engages perfectly”
 

“Unlike my ex-wife, I cannot say anything bad about the bed, really, have always slept well in it”
 
More after the jump…
