But aliens, I mean space is endless, which means that there are infinite galaxies and planets able to sustain life. It’s possible

  • for post-mortem: I heard a theory that the logs where one keeper was “quieter than usual” and the other was crying was because the crying one was guilty over killing the quieter lad, which is why he was... YOU GUESSED IT... quiet. what do you think?

  • GUYS WHAT ABOUT KELPIES!?!?! See we have a legend about evil horses in Scotland, like if you get on the horse you'll get stuck on it and it'll try and drown you. We even have a giant statue of 2 horse heads in the country. So What if they got drowned by a Kelpie? Yeah you get what I mean. Anyway anyone else who's Scottish or Irish (it might be Irish) Do you know what that story about the guy who was a cannibal and made his whole family hunt down people to eat in their house. In the Edinburgh Dungeons their is a part where they talk about this story and it's like a guy saying he's gonna hunt you down and stuff. If you know what I'm talking about then say something.

  • Scottish lighthouse with three missing men and no one mentions selkie? Tut tut. (I know it's not Supernatural, but still.) Or sirens. Come on. Celtic mythology has loads of things that would fit better than aliens. LOL. Also, Lighthouse keepers WERE traditionally more likely to be victims of selkies, especially if they were actually washed out to sea in a storm or in high winds. The selkies would save them by turning them into seals or carrying them off as husbands (or wives for the women) and turning them into selkies as well.

  • I haven't come to the theories part yet but I think what happened was that one of the guys went crazy and killed the other two and then made the last log saying the storm is over and the sea is calm and God is above all? Because he was the only one seeing the storm and was going insane about it and in his insanity killed the others until he found calm again? And then after realization of what he had done, maybe he jumped into the sea to end his own life too?

  • #postmortem - Would it have been plausible for all three men to have been fishing close to the shore? Makes the story of a giant wave washing them away slightly more beleivable than all three falling in at seperate occasions like some sort of slapstick comedy

  • For Postmortem: the "healing sheep" and "hallucinating (storms)" gives me some ideas(?) mulberry leaves are said to be good for sheep, and though the ripe berries are edible the unripe ones may cause hallucinations and stomach aches to humans. The black mulberry is able to grow in cooler climates, like Britain and Scotland. As for the "no signs of violence" two could have been collecting the ropes/tackle box supplies and one just *shoved* them into the ocean with an oncoming wave, and then jumed in himself (or just..shoved the other two off the cliff, who needs an axe with those jagged cliffs :) ) idk what im talking tbh anyway i love the show and ghosts aren't real. sorry ryan #postmortem #shaniac #DemonsLiveOutsideMyWindowAndImOnTheSecondFloor
