High Strangeness: UFO Missing Time Madness

UFO Missing Time Madness

The great thing about writing this blog is that, if I'm ever feeling too lazy to write something, I can just give you a report on my current MUFON assignments and let the UFO witnesses do my work for me.

After a couple of very slow months, I am suddenly inundated with cases -- 6 new ones just this week -- and there are some real doozies in the in box. Three in particular caught my interest, because they're all historical cases -- two from 1973 and one from 1997 -- and because two of them involve missing time (my favorite!), and because they're all fucking nuts.

Here are the highlights from the case reports:

CASE # XXXXX: The Case of the Feisty Grandmother (reported in full)
October 23, 1973 -- "My grandmother had come to Wisconsin to pick me up. We stopped at my aunts house(a mobile home) in the country. I was up in the living room and looked out the window of the front door. I saw the object and called grandmother. I looked at the clock by the door and it was 9 p.m. The object was above a field across the street and when she came to the door it started to move Soundlessly it disappeared behind the trees. Moments later I looked out the door and noticed it back over the field. I looked at the clock and it was midnight. Grandmother was feisty and went out the door to investigate. It disappeared like turning off a switch. This would have been the end of the story except that after my military service I went to help my mother move to fla. and she had a Winnebego Motor Home. We stopped at a rest stop in the hills of Tennessee and I slept on the upper bunk above the cab The next morning my pillow had a large area of blood from one side of my nose and in the middle of of it was a large black Crystal. I left it there and we sold the Motor Home later. Wish I knew where those three hours went."
Have to admit, I'd love to know who bought the Winnebago and what they did with the bloody pillow and the black crystal.

If you could, would you leave your implant behind in a Winnebago?
CASE # XXXXX: The Case of the Kid Who Was "Druck" or On Dope or Maybe Even Intoxicated (and Still Is) (aftermath only; trust me, you do not want to read the whole thing) 
June 1, 1973 -- "... THE NEXT THING I REMEMBER WAS WAKING UP IN MY TRUCK,I WAS PARTIALLY IN THE DITCH, UP AGAIST A MAILBOX, THE TRUCK WAS ABOUT 150 FT FROM WHERE I STOPPED TO LOOK FOR THE LIGHT, JUST BEFORE THE INTERSECTION OF CTH X AND XXXXX RD THAT I WAS GOING TO TURN ON TO GO HOME. I LIVED ON XXXXX RD 2 MILES EAST.I WAS VERY EXCITED, I GOT HOME WOKE MY PARENTS UP AND TOLD THEM I THINK I SAW A UFO, THEY WERE LAUGHING TELLING ME I WAS DRUCK OR ON DOPE.THE NEXT DAY THE NEIGHBOR CALLED AND ASKED IF I WAS OK, HE SAID LAST NIGHT, HIS YARD DOGS WERE BARKING FOR A LONG TIME WHEN HE FINALLY GOT UP HE COULD SEE MY TRUCK AT THE END OF HIS DRIVEWAY, HE ASKED IF IT WAS ME? I TOLD IT MUST HAVE BEEN, HE ASKED FOR HELP IN FIXING HIS MAILBOX, I DID HELP FIX IT. I NEVER TALKED ABOUT THIS WITH ANYONE, I DID ONE DAY ASKED MY MOTHER IF SHE REMEMBERED THE NIGHT I WOKE HER AND DAD UP, SAYING I SAW A UFO, SHE TOLD ME JUST THROUGH TALKING AND LAUGHING ABOUT MANY TIMES WE KIDS GOT IN TROUBLE, SHE SAID,, WHEN YOU WOKE ME UP THAT NIGHT I WAS SO MAD AT YOU,SAYING IT WAS 2 AM AND I HAD TO GET UP AT 5 AM TO GO IN EARLY. SO FROM MY CURFEW TIME OF 12 THAT I WAS GOING TO HOME ON TIME OR NEAR TIME I WAS 2 HOURS"
What can I say? I mowed down a few mailboxes in 1973, too.

CASE # XXXXX: The Case of the Black Light and the Strange Words (reported in full)
June 16, 1997 -- "All I know is what I seen. The light hit my chest after that my ex wife's daughter had a black light in her room and with the black light on I had writing on my chest only seen by black light on. it affected my body can't understand what these words mean on my chest"
Now, strictly speaking, this case does not involve anything even remotely resembling a UFO, with the possible exception of the black light, so as far as I'm concerned I am under no obligation to investigate it. Which is great, because the people involved seem really terrifying. On the other hand... I suspect that this investigation could draw me into a nightmare world of drug smuggling, cock fighting and human trafficking, and I'd hate to miss out on that.

Stay tuned...

When someone waits decades after the fact to report an event, we have to at least doubt the accuracy of the account. After all, psychology has demonstrated that memories don't get sharper over time, but rather they degrade and can become embellished. Personally, I always wonder why a witness waits for so long before making a report that not even the most superficial investigation can be conducted. Thus, the report essentially is no more than a tall tale. These are fascinating, but really what can you or anyone do with these other than file them away?

Mark, your new friend Jenny Randles has an amusing cautionary tale about how a sighting with a mundane explanation got turned into a lecture-headlining abduction tale by zealous investigaters.

I sent you a page scan via Twitter. For those who have numerous Randles books, it's Time Storms, pages 206-7 of the Berkley Books mass market paperback, printed 2002.

Thanks for the page scan, Terry... very funny story.

Purrlgurrl, what I've come across more than once is that the witness keeps the experience to him- or herself out of fear, but then by chance they see a cable tv UFO show that reminds them of what they saw, and they decide to file a report. Once they realize that someone else has seen the same thing, they want to share their story!
