Daily 2 Cents: 'Grinning' Shape-Shifter Encounter -- Massive 17-Foot Burmese Python Captured in Everglades

'Grinning' Shape-Shifter Encounter

I stumbled across this account on Reddit...very bizarre:

This encounter has been on my mind for some time and I'm looking for some answers or information, I just didn't know where to post and who to ask for help.

I was 16 when this happened, me and my older cousin he was 19 at the time were coming back from a family party so our spirits where high even though it was 2 in the morning. On our route home there is a very long road that is quite wide, on both sides there are tall tress not something you'd call a forest but dense enough it creates darkness each side. However on the left side there is a thin strip of sidewalk and on the right the sidewalk is wider, so wide you could probably drive down it.

We were just having a heart to heart talking about various things like traveling, our family generally what we want our future to be like. We weren't driving fast at all because we didn't really want to go home. I caught something out of the corner of my eye. Not knowing what it was I turned to look out my window but I couldn't see anything. In my gut I felt something was off and a wave of sadness came over me for no specific reason. I just felt like crying. I was about to ask my cousin if he was alright but when I looked up I saw a figure run from the left side of the sidewalk to the right. It scared me so much because I've never seen anything like this before. It looked almost like a human but I knew it couldn't be as it was extremely tall and so skinny and it's arms were long and looked to be thin.

My cousin slammed on the breaks and I knew that what I just saw he saw too. Wanting to know what it was I looked to the right side and I was utterly confused. A man on the right sidewalk was sitting there next to his bike. He looked at us and smiled. He was wearing cycling gear and his bike was on the ground. I was shocked and confused. Why would he be cycling at 2 in the morning? I crawled over the console and leaned over my cousin so my face was right up to the window. I stared at the man as he smiled back at me but his smile had changed. It was so wide and toothy, he looked kinda normal but so out of place.

As I examined him more I noticed he only had one ear and where it should be was totally flat but everything else was just what you'd expect a human to look like. The man stood up and my cousin pulled me away from the window and back into my seat. He drove off so fast I didn't even have time to look through the mirrors to look back at the man.

I tried to talk to my cousin about it that night and various other times but he just snaps at me telling me to drop that topic and never to bring it up around him again. I know what I saw but at the same time I have no clue what it is.



Hell on Earth

The return of powerful winds Thursday pushed the destructive Ventura County fire closer to several communities, prompting new evacuations.

Communities both on the coast and inland were under threat. At 4 a.m., officials closed the 101 Freeway between Routes 126 and 150. According to the California Highway Patrol, that left no open routes between Santa Barbara and Ventura counties.

The Thomas fire has scorched about 90,000 acres and carved a path of destruction that stretches more than 10 miles from Santa Paula to the Pacific Ocean.

As flames raged toward neighborhoods in Ojai, Carpinteria and Fillmore, officials issued new evacuation orders in Ojai Valley, notifying residents with an emergency cellphone alert. Authorities said they were helping residents of five assisted-living facilities evacuate, while people at Ojai Hospital were advised to shelter in place.

Massive 17-Foot Burmese Python Captured in Everglades

hree hunters caught a 17-foot, 132-pound Burmese python in the Florida Everglades in southern Miami-Dade, a record for the program aimed at curbing the proliferation of the non-native species, according to media reports.

The giant snake was caught Friday at Big Cypress National Preserve, according to NBC 6 Miami.

“That snake could pretty much kill any full-grown man,” said one of the hunters who caught the python, Jason Leon, to NBC 6. “If that snake was alive right now, it would probably take like three of us to be able to control that snake.”

It’s so far the largest snake to be caught under the South Florida Water Management District’s python elimination program. Read more at 17-foot python that could 'pretty much kill any full-grown man' caught in Everglades


Australian Aborigines Carry the Unknown 'Human' DNA

New research has revealed fascinating details about Aboriginal Australians and Pacific Islanders, who according to experts, carry genetic material of an unknown human species.

The new research suggests people from Papua New Guinea and northeast Australia have traces of DNA belonging to an unidentified, extinct human species.

Apparently, there is still much that geneticists and scientists do not understand about this crucial moment in human history, and it seems that research on the subject is raising more questions than answers.

In 2016, researchers at Harvard Medical School published the findings of a comprehensive study of the human genome of all areas of the world and discovered something astounding about the Australian aboriginal population.
