Greetings, and welcome to The /x/ Files, the weekly news digest for 4chan’s Paranormal board. Every Sunday, we take a quick snapshot of the mysterious world around us and bring it, in an easily readable magazine format, to the board. I am The Editor, the anonymous creator of this idea and collector of the news that will be following below. In the interests of legitimacy, I will be using a secure tripcode to post the thread; once the posts are completed, I will take the tripcode off and return to my anonymity.
Well, it took very nearly a year and a severe case of the flu, but I finally missed a Sunday. And while that day has come and gone, the flu remains, so this’ll be a severely truncated issue. But if I’m well next Sunday, you’ll get the full thing then. Anyway, on with the show!
