What is a paranormal resource?

I keep coming across this word, 'Paranormal' and I only that paranormal means anything that is above normal.

If a person is said to posses qualities that are not seen generally in most of the human beings or if a person performs something extraordinary physically which even a physically much well built cannot do, then that person is said to be paranormal.

According to the Journal of Parapsychology, the term paranormal describes "any phenomenon that in one or more respects exceeds the limits of what is deemed physically possible according to current scientific assumptions.

I would call telepathy, extra-sensory perception, psychokinesis are all paranormal qualities.

Anecdotal evidence:

Though not scientific, an anecdotal approach to the paranormal involves the collection of anecdotal evidence, which is an informal account of something that presumably happened. Anecdotes are often in contrast to empirical evidence, which are types of formal accounts that can be investigated using the scientific method.

Wikipedia says that Charles Fort (1874 – 1932) is perhaps the best known collector of paranormal anecdotes, who is supposed to have compiled as many as 40,000 notes on unexplained phenomena.

I would very much like to read his compilation which I am sure will make an interesting reading. Can anyone tell me where I can get that?

I read that http://psychics.co uk has a massive paranormal resource with lots of real life stories and one of the busiest free psychic chat rooms on the Web.

Thank you Wikipedia!
