Report Posted To GCBRO Web Site On: January 31, 2005
TIME: 8:30 pm
LOCATION: Canadian County, Oklahoma
OBSERVED: A large creature jumping down the road very fast. The creature took two or three jumps before he was at the end of the road. The creature stopped and stared at me and my friends and then began to continue on his way. (very scary)!
Activities of Witness: I was sitting in my car in front of my friends house with a few of my buddies. No drugs of alcohol were being used before or after the strange event.
Description of Creature: A large grayish creature about six to seven foot tall that walked up-right. The creatures head resembled the one of a horse. The creature also had very large yellow eyes.
No cool pictures, but in my state it is legal to eat roadkill. So many deer are killed out of season by drivers that the state senate found it to be better for sanitation to allow people to keep their car-kills than to require them to be left on the roadside.
It is illegal for ice cream to be given away for free by a commercial entity.
Until recently, a house inhabited by seven or more unrelated women was considered a brothel unless the building was owned and operated by an educational or religious institution. Ono now are many sororities starting to build houses on local university campuses.
East Tennessee is one of the two hardest locations in the world to predict weather for. Because of the combinations of mountains and rivers and the meeting of the Northern Jet Stream and Gulf Jet Stream, weather is often difficult to predict and can vary greatly from one year to another. The only place more difficult to predict weather for is some place in eastern India, but I don't remember the exact location.
I'll raise your side of beef, and throw in a Big Prawn at Ballina

.. every now and then I hold grave fears for my country
and many are the wierd things to be found in Queensland...
Ogopogo- sea serpent in Lake Okanagan in British Columbia, Canada
It has been conceded that Ogopogo is one to two feet in diameter and is dark green in color but its length varies from fifteen to seventy feet. Ogie has two or more visible humps and moves in an undulating motion through the water, often at very high speeds. The creature's head resembles that of a horse or goat and is bearded. Ogopogo has been mistaken for a log, a sturgeon, andOgopogo even a beaver!
Orchardists, looking down from the sheer slopes along the lake, have regularly claimed to have spotted Ogopogo swimming on the surface. Boaters have recounted being mysteriously capsized by a dark, fast-moving, underwater form. Six times a year, on average, someone reports seeing the creature.
Descriptions vary, but certain characteristics have been repeated through the decades: Ogopogo is greenish in colour, snakelike, and ranges upward to 25 meters in length. Some say the head is horse like; others that it's reptilian. Many have photographed what they claim is Ogopogo, but the pictures -like those of its better-known counterpart, the Loch Ness Monster- have always been inconclusive.
I have a cement tree!
A well thought out and researched post! One never needs to stray from Wilders to locate weirdness!
Living dangerously in Danzig, Big....err...Cochise
Weirdness is as weirdness does........nothing is weird unless you view it from a weird perspective......perspective weirdness can be extremely weird depending on your view of what is weird or not......a friend of mine used to say I was weird but he was very very weird and so his weird perspective of me would obviously have been clouded by is excessive weirdness......which makes the whole aspect of weirdness very weird........Would you consider that to be weird??......
