Hello, I am Robert G. Male.
Welcome to WraithStop. Here you will find links that I think are of interest.
Furthermore these are links that I want to keep track of because they have given me either ideas or some other form of
inspiration for my writing. Links are listed in order lowest to highest both in the date they are given and the order
in which they appear (meaning: read them from the bottom up for a certain day's list). Some of these sites may require
you to sign up for free. Without further ado, the links...

Texas Chain Saw Massacre.
- This is all very reminiscent of Texas Chain Saw Massacre. Such criminal activity is heinous

- Wow, where to start with this one? Perhaps it should first be noted this made it on
Fox News even if only an article online. Those were some friendly, and likely technologically in-advanced aliens. That they had to
sacrifice their ship to stop a meteorite doesn't sound too smart. Maybe there have been too many movies and mini-series about
