They act the victims, but to the occult-trained eye, it is obvious that they are themselves the harbingers of all this misfortune. Perhaps it has something to do with the newborn female offspring they brought with them?
I totally agree. Maybe we need psychics and people with Second Sight at our airport terminals, rather than metal detectors, X Ray machines and chemical sniffing technology.

Did you see the bit about him surviving the Boxing Day Tsunami? That was long before the wedding. Clearly, it's the husband who's cursed.

Maybe he was carrying the souls of the Boxing Day victims, who have entered his baby and now they are acting through her to wreak their vengeance.

In related news, the Vatican needs more exorcists.
http://www.smh.com.au/national/sympa...401-1crnr.html

So it was the Vatican's lack of action against this tsunami revenant demon child which caused all the recent destruction? Is there a pursuable class action in there somewhere?

Everybody always assumes that the Antichrist is male. Maybe Damien is just a bit of misdirection.

It's "Elinor", according to the original article. And Svanström means "swan power". Definitely occult.

Not really. In this case it basically means river (or at least, of the different
types of flowing water it can be translated into, river is the one that sounds
"right" in a name).
Ström in the meaning of power is specifically electric power.

Sorry.

Shows what you get for using Google Translate.

So ström would be closer to the English word current?

Either that, or they named their boy "Hydroelectricity"...

The aptly-named satanic leaf-tailed gecko:

If this guy didn't have his picture in the Monster Manual, he should've.

I really want to see a new series with this guy introduced as the nemesis of the GEICO Gecko. Like Spidey and Venom.

The orange-red eyes seem to be common... the tail is a curious mimicking adaptation. You saw that Boulenger reported on them back in 1888?
