Daily 2 Cents: Two Men Go Missing For 7 Hours in Roswell -- The Jersey Shore Shark Attacks of 1916 -- Arcane Radio Update


Two Men Go Missing For 7 Hours in Roswell

After no victims were found at the scene of a one-car rollover accident in Roswell this week, crews had to rush back hours later when the driver said he woke up surrounded by donkeys in a field.

Two men rolled their vehicle in the median of U.S. 70 west near mile marker 324 Friday at about 2 a.m., according to state police.

Multiple fire and police agencies went to the scene, but couldn’t find victims. Seven hours later, at about 9 a.m., 911 dispatchers got a call from a man who said he was lost and had been in a car accident that morning.

The man said he and the passenger were drinking the night before and didn’t remember what happened next, according to state police. He also said he woke up in a field next to some donkeys.

The driver, whose identity hasn’t been released, suffered injuries to a shoulder and his hands. Police said the passenger suffered back injuries.

The driver was issued multiple citations, but the charges haven’t been released. - KOAT

UPDATED:

A driver and his passenger mysteriously vanished for several hours and had no memory of what happened.

The two men had been involved in a car accident in which their vehicle had rolled down an embankment, but when paramedics arrived on the scene to offer assistance they were perplexed to discover that the car was empty and that the men could not be found anywhere around the crash site.

The mystery only deepened when, seven hours later, the pair allegedly awoke in a field of donkeys with no idea of how they got there or where they'd been for the preceding time period.

The town of Roswell itself has long been associated with the unexplained ever since a mysterious object was believed to have crashed there in 1947, an event that has been at the center of conspiracy theories and speculation for the better part of 65 years.

It isn't clear exactly what happened to the two men in this latest incident, but based on a police report suggesting that the men had been drinking heavily before the crash, it seems that alcohol, rather than extraterrestrial visitors, may have been the primary culprit. More at THP

Oklahoma official suggests public executions

Tulsa County Assessor Ken Yazel suggests public hangings in the town square to reduce crime.

Why stop with public hangings?

Yazel wasn’t clear where Tulsa’s town square is located, but I’ll assume it’s Bartlett Square on Main and Fifth streets.

With the water foundation, criminals could be waterboarded in front of a crowd.

How about going all William Wallace and have them hanged, drawn and quartered?

Stoning could be a possibility, but that requires crowd participation.

Burning at the stake is an oldie but goodie. The city could handle two problems at once, if officials use residential green waste as fuel to the fire.

This is such a perfectly medieval idea, it seems a waste to stop at lawbreakers.

To my knowledge, Tulsa has never had an old-fashioned witch hunt. This is not a metaphor. Real witches.

According to the 18th century B.C. Code of Hammurabi, a float test was effective in ferreting out those practicing black magic.

Since there is rarely water in the Arkansas River, the Tulsa townsfolk will have to rely on Big Splash.

The alleged witches could be shot down the big slide and then we’ll see if they float or not.

Clearly, Yazel’s idea is not only morbid but so out-of-touch that it’s silly.

Execution is still a legal punishment for certain types of murder in Oklahoma. It is a punishment taken seriously to the point of multiple mandated court appeals and oversight.

It’s so strictly governed that the state gained international notoriety when it failed the execution protocols a few months ago. The state is still trying to figure out how to move forward with legal executions.

Yazel’s comments, which he has not backed away from, came during a discussion at a public Budget Board county meeting about the scheduling of jury trials, jail overcrowding and crime rate.

By throwing out ideas like public hangings doesn’t add anything to the legitimate conversation.

The Huldra Legend

In Scandinavian folklore, the Huldra is a seductive forest creature. Male hulders do appear, called Huldrekall. Like the female counterpart, the huldrkall is a shapeshifter who often lures girls under a fair countenance (Glamour). Both male and female hulder could be revealed as rather ugly when the glamour was lifted from them.

In some traditions, the huldra lures men into the forest to have sexual intercourse with her, rewarding those who satisfy her and often killing those who do not. The Norwegian huldra is a lot less bloodthirsty and may simply kidnap a man or lure him into the underworld. She sometimes steals human infants and replaces them with her own ugly huldrebarn. In some cases, the intercourse resulted in a child, being presented to the unknowing father. In some cases, she forces him to marry her.

The Jersey Shore Shark Attacks of 1916

The Jersey Shore shark attacks of 1916 were a series of shark attacks along the coast of New Jersey between July 1 and July 12, 1916, in which four people were killed and one injured. Since 1916, scholars have debated which shark species was responsible and the number of animals involved, with the great white shark and the bull shark most frequently being blamed. The attacks occurred during a deadly summer heat wave and polio epidemic in the northeastern United States that drove thousands of people to the seaside resorts of the Jersey Shore. Shark attacks on the Atlantic Coast of the United States outside the semitropical states of Florida, Georgia, and the Carolinas were rare, but scholars believe that the increased presence of sharks and humans in the water led to the attacks in 1916.

Local and national reaction to the attacks involved a wave of panic that led to shark hunts aimed at eradicating the population of “man-eating” sharks and protecting the economies of New Jersey’s seaside communities. Resort towns enclosed their public beaches with steel nets to protect swimmers. Scientific knowledge about sharks before 1916 was based on conjecture and speculation. The attacks forced ichthyologists to reassess common beliefs about the abilities of sharks and the nature of shark attacks.
