Daily 2 Cents: Tall Alien by the Road -- White Owl & UFO -- 'Zombie' Warning Issued in Florida City

Tall Alien by the Road

I recently received the following account:


I have been wanting to tell someone who cares about what I seen for a very long time, someone that will believe me and not judge. It's been many years ago but I remember it as if it was yesterday. I was at work one day in Greensboro, NC. lunch time rolled around and I left for my friend's house in Allen Jay (High Point).

Anyway it was the early spring, a beautiful day approx 12:15 pm. As I remember is was 1992. As I turned down a road called Nance Ave on the way to my friend's house. Actually I was almost there. As I drove everything was fine. All of a sudden there was a 8- 9 ft alien (maybe even taller) standing on the left side of my car on the side of the road. I couldn’t believe my eyes. I slowed down to look up at it and it was very tall. The eyes were kinda large and shaped like the normal cat's eyes that we see a lot for aliens. He was so black and dark...his cloak (as it looked to me) came up and it looked like he had on a toboggan type cap, but again it was so black that it kind of melted in together with the cloak. It was terribly skinny. And his eyes were very shiny. Very thin and very tall. No hands were visible or feet, he was just standing there looking straight at something. As I drove by slowly I kept watching in my mirror at what I was seeing and all of a sudden it turned and was looking at me.

Now the road I was on is somewhat hilly with up and down small hills. I was so fascinated with what I was seeing I wanted to go back. I never took my eyes off of the alien as I could see just a little bit of him. Still as I went to turn around, I still had a visual on the alien. As I whipped my car around, maybe 3-4 seconds with my eyes not on the alien, well he was gone. I was scared, but also fascinated.

I think the only one who believed me was my friend as I told her and took several shots of tequila at her house, that never phased me. She said when I came flying threw her door my face was very white and she knew something was wrong. I was trying to calm down before I went back to work. I have never seen another one, but have seen mysterious thing at the NC coast where I go.

Thank You. DB


White Owl & UFO

Mendota, California: At approximately 10:15pm as my kids & I were driving through a dark, lonely road through fields (outside of Mendota, CA) we saw an object in the sky with white and red lights moving through the sky super fast! It caught our eyes, because we’ve never seen anything like this. (Just a minute or so prior to noticing the flying object a white owl flew right in front of our car windshield, so close that it was almost touching the glass. it looked at us and flew away fast. We all froze and had chills).

We watched as the flying object moved super fast from one end to another & closer.

Then it suddenly slowed down, hovered & lowered. We saw a clear disk shape going in circles with white and red flashing lights! There was no question as to what we were clearly looking at. Then all of a sudden it was gone. Right after we lost sight of it, two bunnies appear on the road in plain darkness in front of our car. Then, another. We were so scared, we couldn’t understand what the heck was going on.

It was the scariest thing ever! My body froze so bad that I was having difficulty moving & driving. I was super stiff until I got home! The scariest part was that we were stuck on that road with no one and nothing around and we had to drive toward our last sighting of this thing, because it was the only way out of there to reach the highway.

Found a picture of a UFO sighting from 2010 which most closely resembles what we saw (except for the blue light). We did not take any pictures ourselves as we were in shock.

'Zombie' Warning Issued in Florida City

LAKE WORTH, Fla. (AP) - Residents of a Florida city who received alerts about a power outage were also warned to look out for zombies. That's right - zombies.

Lake Worth residents received the message during a power outage Sunday.

The alert warned that more than 7,000 customers lost power "due to extreme zombie activity."

City spokesman Ben Kerr later posted a Facebook message saying officials were investigating the bogus alert and that he wanted to "reiterate that Lake Worth does not have any zombie activity currently." Read more at Florida city warns residents of power outage, zombies


Hey folks...I have decided to no longer be a part of 'The Existence of Strange Things' radio show. I want to thank Sean Forker, Butch Witkowski and Vance Nesbitt for their friendship and support. I enjoy webcasting and broadcast radio...it has been a big part of what I do for the past 8 years. I plan to eventually catch-on with another show...but the current situation was simply untenable. Thanks. Lon
