How about that movie (cant remember the name) with Mel Gibson in it where the aliens travel all those light years just to eat people, but they dont know how to get through wooden doors..........

No worse than the one with Harrison Ford (Blade Runner?) where the ray gun or whatever it was won't kill the alien, but absolutely demolishes the car that is hit when he misses the alien being. Yeah, totally believable.

Used to have an area in Jersey* called "The Breda* Triangle"..........folk used to venture into it of an evening and became increasingly disorientated, especially when moving between the places of refuge within the Triangle. Quite often they later had no clear recollection of events.

Occassionally folk dissapeared.

*Breda - Dutch lager Beer.

It's just a crusty fart!! - the earth's crust having stored frozen methane and it's sudden release(fart) which maybe - MAYBE - has led to some disappearances - but I suspect most are that old problem of poor navigation and/or bad weather.

Ok , Iím going to tell you something very strange that happened to me , and I would not have believed it had I not seen it myself, so its ok if you donít believe me, I understand!.
I picked up a dive charter in Palm Beach , FL. 8 of us including myself & crew.
We were in the area of Freeport, Grand Bahamas & pulled in to the Xanado to have lunch, after lunch I when back to the boat and when I stepped onboard, I noticed the compass going around 360* over & over again, in an irregular way.
This when on for 20 minutes & the rest of the group came back in time to witness this first hand.
So I suppose there is somthing there,
Ive made over 100 charters over 10 years in that area & this was the only time I noticed anything strange & it happened at the dock !

Weird Stuff........

I've talked to ghosts on two occassions. Real ones who looked liked people, in fact at first I thought they were real people. But kinda weird to be able to put yer hands through people. I will admit to having had a few drinks beforehand though, albeit nothing special. But they were 100% real (for Ghosts!). and strangely enough I still don't beleive in ghosts.

Seperately, I have also woken up once or twice ("back in the day" ) covered in Ectoplasm...........

I also got teleported by Aliens once. Was tucked up in bed after a night out and having a dream that I was riding a motorcycle that was going to crash. As usual, just before the accident I woke up with a start. But unfortunateley I still went through the hedge.

I experience an unusual phenomenon occasionally. Before I go to bed I hang up all my clothes in the wardrobe all neat but then a gorilla breaks into the bedroom and scatters the clothes all over the floor. At the same time a goat crawls into my mouth and sleeps there. Never seen either of them yet. Strange that this only happens when I've had a pint or two though
