    Probably quite a bit. You get really familiar with animals when you depend on them for survival.

    So. In 2016 some documentary filmmakers were filming b-roll outside a town called Beaver, Utah. They allege to have captured something on film, in hi def, at 60 fps. The "object" appears at about 2:33 or so in the footage. Watch it a couple times at regular speed, then at .25



    here's one of the filmmakers talking about it, with slowed down footage included, and apparent links to the raw video files in the video descriptions. i don't know raw from edited video, so that means nothing to me, but it's still fun to think about :3c

    edit:



    might as well include this one, which is a deep dive into the footage, using 3d terrain plotting and cgi mockup comparisons and stuff, going into forced perspective etc. it's interesting! and pretty convincing!

    I WANT TO BELIEEEEEEVE :cry:

    I personally believe the majority of genuine UFO sightings are of experimental military aircraft, which is honestly more disturbing than believing they belong to extraterrestrials. ETs might be here for fun or science, but I know what experimental military aircraft end up getting used for.

    It was definitely a bug.
    The 3rd video that uses 3D mapping says if you think it's a small object moving close to the camera then you're a "Coincidence theorist" which is fucking laughable.
    The video creator states this because the object goes behind the hill in the background and because the object matches the parallax of the hill. It presents these two items as if they're indisputable fact, when they are far from it.
    He creates data which supports hiss hypothesis. He finds evidence to prove a thing He already believes.

    Are you sitting comfortably?

    Then let's begin.

    I was probably about three, maybe four, my older brothers were 5 and ten or so, and we went on a big ol' hiking and camping trip up on the peninsula in Washington state, aka, prime squatch country. My uncle (later stepdad) Bruce was with us with my cousins (later step siblings) Zach and Christy, who are a few years older than my brother and I. My dad and my Uncle Bruce were both prison guards at the time and my dad carried his duty weapon, a 9mm Beretta, with him on the trip in case we came across some unfriendly wildlife that needed scaring away.

    The place we we're camping at was called PJ Lake, if memory serves, and it's quite a hike to even get to the campsite, a good four miles or so, which the kids all managed pretty well despite how young we all were. Must be that fresh forest air, eh? Anyway, after a long hike we set up camp and do camping stuff until it gets dark.

    As night falls, and the forest goes quiet, it goes real quiet. To use the cliche, entirely too quiet. The kids got tired and went to sleep while my dad and my uncle stayed up (probably to smoke a joint, if I know them half as well as I think I do.) I don't remember much about what happened next but my dad sure as shit does and my Uncle Bruce, who was the toughest SoB I've literally ever known, basically refused to even speak about the incident. My older brothers also remember this with perfect clarity, and before he died my older brother Stevie told me the story and it was genuinely the only time I'd ever seen true fear in his face.

    A rock comes sailing into the campsite, smashing into the ground beside the fire and clattering into our kindling pile, followed by what my father describes as "a sound like a big, angry gorilla screaming into a grain pipe." My dad stands up, racks a round into his 9mm. This is the sound that woke my brothers, I was still dead tired from the hike so I didn't wake up until I heard voices, primarily my dad saying "Show yourself! I can hear you moving, I'm an officer of the law!" (which, not really? but I digress) and all the other kids asking what was going on, and I poke my head out of the tent to see my dad in a two-handed shooting stance with my Uncle Bruce standing directly over his shoulder with a camp axe in his right hand and a flashlight in his left, shining out into the woods and tracking with the barrel of his pistol.

    More rocks and sticks, usually not as close as the last one, more noises from the dark, new voices added to the first, from all sides except the shore of the lake and that crystal clear water, so clear you could see straight to the bottom of the lake during the day only now it was black under the moonlight. Howls from the trees, and all us kids huddled now in the same tent reassuring each other that it was probably just a mad ol' mama black bear making sure we know who's who and what's what in her forest, but I'll tell you this; I have never known my step dad to have been afraid of anything in this life. No man nor beast. He wasn't even afraid of the cancer in the end. But to his dying day, my Uncle Bruce refused to speak of that incident. Refused. We left as dawn broke so we wouldn't break our ankles hiking out and never went camping, hiking, or fishing in those parts again, or at least, not quite so deep into those parts.

    Edit: my dad and my uncle Bruce for their part were both very experienced woodsmen, with decades of combined experience hunting and fishing all over Washington, Northern California and the scrublands and mountains of Nevada, and my dad swears up and down that he, to this day, has never heard anything like the sound he heard that night, except for in one place: nature documentaries about the great apes.

    so it's been a running thing that my friend's house is haunted, due to the usual spooky occurrences.
    Noises, footsteps, his bedroom door was two like, glass parlor doors? and there'd be a bunch of rapid thuds on the glass like someone was knocking to enter but there's nobody there, etc.
    The basement had a door with locks on the outside that we never managed to open.

    one time I was sleeping over, I woke up because I heard footsteps in the living room and I figured "oh one of his roommates is down here." I could hear the floor creaking with their steps as they came down the stairs and walked toward the kitchen, and then back over to me, so I rolled over to be like "hey it's just me" and there was nobody there, so I made my friend let me sleep in his room lol

    but he's moving out, I was helping him with his couch and bed and stuff, and when we lift his box spring, a little pendant slid out from under it, right into his hand.

    jVnAsAl.jpg

    It's copper, and I think maybe that's Baby's Breath inside it, it's some kind of white flower. it looks old and spooky and kind of pretty, and I think it was the ghost saying goodbye.

    anyway, he gave it to me, because I always have my eye out for Relics

    it reminds me of when I was a kid, and I'd go with my mom to the cemetery to see my grandparents and uncles and shit. The older stones would have little windows. Black and white portraits behind glass that's gone cloudy with weather and age.

    That's kinda what I'm hoping!

    If I knew, I mean, I Want To Believe, but if I knew ghosts were real, I'd turn my home into a like, ghost haven. I'd collect their Tethers and keep them in my house, and I'd try to talk to them. My cats would fucking hate it.

    Screaming and throwing sticks in groups sounds very ape.

    "Tethers" makes me think of Phantom Brave. Where you live on an island with helpful ghosts and let them possess rocks and driftwood.

    I used to interpret everything as movement in the dark when I was tired, so the ceiling and everything else wouldn't stay still at night.

    The ghost just wanted to travel. It'll be friendly and/or leave you alone until it gets bored.

    After that. Good luck!

    I know no one's ever proven the existence of hauntings, but this right here is the kind of thing that makes me wonder.

    I used to, for some dumb reason, try and avoid sleep for as long as I could. My record was 40ish hours. It would have been longer but I actually fell prey to boredom before getting too tired to function

    let me tell you guys about sleep deprivation hallucinations. They're uh, not great

    I've been followed by a herd of shadow cats, saw my staircase streeeeeeetch upwards endlessly, had conversations with people and then turned around and I had been talking to no one

    I was actually getting ready to go to sleep after being up for a while and my tinnitus started acting up. It turns into unintelligible voices that are getting louder and louder and I'm actually sitting on my bed holding my ears, regretting every decision that led to this, as it becomes unbearably loud, and then someone in my head shouted my name and all the voices stopped and I was like "okay bed time"

    Sometimes I don't fall asleep for a long time, but the room starts to make less sense, and I stay awake in bed for hours and hours but morning never comes, and then I realise that I've woken up because I'm not in the same room anymore, and in fact the room I spent all that time in wasn't like my own room or necessarily a room I've seen before in the first place.
