Strange and Unexplainable Things

Q: Nature does some strange and unexplainable things. I read where in 1877, Memphis, Tennessee experienced a rain of snakes that measured in length from between 12 and 18 inches. On September 4, 1886, three separate showers of polished stones fell on Charleston, South Carolina. And in 1893, a yellow-tinged cloud passing over Paderborn, Germany, released a shower of living pond mussels. Can you explain these phenomena?

A: Right around this time, lobotomies were becoming a popular form of therapy and a vice for some doctors. Of course, in the Southern states, it was explained as voluntary experimental psychosurgery.

Q: I heard that in 1981 in an Elmhurst, Illinois park, four teenagers were hanging out on a summer night when they were awestruck by an incredible creature sitting atop the mausoleum’s stone wall. They described it as being 9-feet tall with dark gray leathery skin, a muscular body, golden horns on its head, huge wings and a long curling tail. They were close enough to have smelled its breath “full of the stench of decay and sulfur.” It flapped its wings, flew straight upward and disappeared. Did they see a gargoyle?

A: My guess is they were probably honor students at the Timothy Leary School for Gifted Children.

Q: Can you explain away the signs of phenomena that might indicate that your house is haunted?

A: I’ll try. Noises–buildings settling. Cabinets opening and closing–poor hinges. Lights turning on and off–electrical shorts. Items disappearing and reappearing–family members borrowing stuff. Unexplained shadows–eye lens damage. Feelings of being watched or touched–alcohol paranoia. Cold or hot spots–alcohol withdrawal. Physical assault–haunted house.

Q: There’s a story about a possessed Barbie doll that moved by itself from a shelf in a basement bedroom to a kitchen on another floor. Is it possible for an inanimate object to become possessed?

A: Of course! Haven’t you heard of Chucky?
