This website serves to subtly introduce the general public to paranatural concepts through a credible, FIOA compliant archive, but structured in such a way that it is easily dismissable as fiction, allowing for a slow infusion of knowledge of these topics without causing any wide-spread distress. This is in direct response to the Mt. Washington incident, wherein it was determined that a skeptical, but informed public would be a safer one, and generate more reliable leads, increasing the amount of credible inquiries, and decreasing the quantity of "dud" reports.
