It's not October yet, but we can all be pleasantly freaked out by this video of a supposed ghost going HAM all over this quaint Irish home.

Ashy Murphy posted this video and the one below to her Facebook page a couple days ago. Both videos seem to show her standing in the corner of her kitchen while the lampshade freaks out, the bread box opens and a cabinet door swings wide.

But the kicker is this nonsense:

I mean, we don't believe in ghosts or anything, or are at the very least highly skeptical. And all of these things that happen seem pretty easy to reproduce with string and a buddy.

Still, though. This is one of the most compelling pieces purportedly capturing ghost activity that we've seen in a while.

What do you think?

Lucille Fleming has a mean arm on her and she proved it at the Aug. 26 Rangers game.

The 103-year-old got to throw out the first pitch for the game, making one of her dreams come true.

She described the event as "heavenly" and said she recently survived a harrowing trip to the hospital in hopes that she could see her Rangers play.

Just look at that curve.

The Rangers should have kept Fleming on the mound because they didn't have too much luck against the Toronto Blue Jays that game. Fleming's favorite team lost 12-4.

Way to root for your home team, Lucille.

How was your weekend? Good? Great!

But it was so good that you probably fell behind on the important stuff that happened in the world. And you probably fell way behind on all the weird, nonsensical stuff that happened.

Don't worry! We're here to bring you at least the latter!

91-year-old Chilean woman has a calcified fetus inside of her.

For more than 60 years, Estela Meléndez though she just had an uncomfortable lump in her abdomen.

That was until the 91-year-old Chilean woman had an x-ray taken after a fall. Then CNN says, doctors discovered that what was actually in her abdomen was a fetus that had died in utero and then calcified over time.

"The doctor said I had a tumor and that they needed to operate on me," Meléndez told CNN. But when a second X-ray was ordered to confirm, doctors couldn't believe their eyes. The mass they were looking at turned out not to be a tumor, but a fetus...

For the elderly woman and her family, the finding has been quite a shock. Meléndez's husband of 74 years, Manuel González, died in January at age 91. González made a living as a fisherman and a boater in the coastal town. One of her few regrets, Meléndez says, is that she and her husband were unable to have children.

Here's what it looks like:

Since the fetus has calcified, the doctors said it poses no risks to Meléndez' health. And considering her advanced age, they said it might cause more harm to remove it.

According to Wikipedia, this is phenomenom is called a lithopedion

Lithopedia may occur from 14 weeks gestation to full term. It is not unusual for a stone baby to remain undiagnosed for decades, and it is often not until a patient is examined for other conditions or a proper examination is conducted that includes an X-ray, that a stone baby is found.

Fewer than 300 cases have been found in the past 400 years of medical documentation.

Un. Freakin. Real.

Agnes Fenton will turn 110 Aug. 8.

For such a long life, she has very simple advice to give anyone hoping for many years ahead.

As reported on Northjersey.com, she gives most of the credit to booze.

She told ABC that her only serious health problem was a long-ago benign tumor and that the doctor discharged her with one word of advice.

"He said, 'Agnes, you must drink three Miller High Lifes a day.' "

"So Aggie's enjoyed three beers and a shot of scotch every day for almost 70 years," the ABC correspondent marveled.

Fenton prefers Johnnie Walker Blue Label, the top-shelf stuff.

"Each of our centenarians has their different secrets," said Stacy Andersen, a project manager with the New England Centenarian Study. "If Agnes feels hers is alcohol, maybe it is, but certainly we don't find that to be consistent across all our centenarians."

She didn't say her century-plus long life was only brought to her by keg after keg of sweet Miller beer. She also thanked the high and mighty.

"When I was 100 years old, I went to the mirror to thank God that I was still here. And I thank him every morning," she said in a voice one must strain to hear. She sat in a wheelchair at the kitchen table in her green-shingled, Cape Cod-style home near Route 4.

When you get older than 90, every minute of the day is Miller Time.

So if you want a long life, shoot for the moon.

Ruby Holt spent the majority of her life on a farm in Tennessee, but just before her 101st birthday she finally got to go to the beach.

After discovering she had never been, two employees at her assisted living center applied for a grant through a charity organization called Wish of a Lifetime, which funded her entire trip to the Alabama coast on the Gulf of Mexico.

What did she think after taking a stroll on the sand and putting her feet in the water?

"It's cold."
