Daily 2 Cents: Hatman Played With My Toys -- Russian Space Weapon? -- Cape Cod 'Summer of Sharks'

Hatman Played With My Toys

Timothy Smits from the Netherlands wrote to tell of his weird experience:

“This is a story that happened to me a long time ago. I could not have been older than 10 as I'm in my 30s now. That probably now was around the late '90s. When I was a young boy, my bed was in the opposite corner of the room, facing the doorway. In front of my bed was a carpet with a road and a little township printed upon it. I used to drive little toy cars around on it.

I recall waking up that night to an eerie feeling, noises coming from next to my bed, scratches, scurrying, squeaking of toy wheels. I sat up straight, trying to get my bearings and stared into the dark, at the carpet. I swear I could see my cars move on their own. Flabbergasted, I sat there thinking, this couldn't be true but there they were, moving back and forth over the roads. I slowly looked up at the doorway which was open for some reason. I never sleep with the door open as my door is directly in front of a staircase and I didn't like looking down that staircase. For some inexplicable reason, I noticed that the dim light coming from the front door downstairs was blocked. Part of the doorway was darker. I could make out a silhouette of a person wearing a long coat and a large brim hat. The very second I realized what I was looking at, I was overcome with terror and screamed at the top of my lungs: 'Mom, Dad, wake up!' as I backed up in the corner facing the doorway.

Seconds later, my parents light came on and they opened the door. As my parent's light filled the hallway, the silhouette dissipated and nothing was left. I sat there terrified with my toy cars scattered across the carpet. My mother asked what was wrong and why was I screaming. I didn't know what to say. I pointed at my cars and told her that they were moving on their own and that a man was standing in my doorway. She soothed me and calmed me back down to a state where I was able to sleep again. I agreed that she could not stay with me all night and let her go back to her own room.

When she got back into bed with my father, I overheard her asking if he recalled my door being open when they went to bed. They both agreed that it was closed and they mumbled about it for awhile. I slowly fell asleep after an hour or so of listening to them mumbling. This occurrence has stayed with me the rest of my life. I believe now that I experienced the Hatman phenomenon.”

Russian Space Weapon?

A Russian satellite that launched to Earth orbit last October has been behaving oddly, raising the possibility that the craft could be some sort of space weapon, a U.S. diplomat warned.

Russia has described the satellite in question as a "space apparatus inspector," Yleem Poblete, assistant secretary for arms control, verification and compliance at the U.S. State Department, said at a conference on disarmament in Geneva yesterday (Aug. 14).

"But its behavior on orbit was inconsistent with anything seen before from on-orbit inspection or space situational-awareness capabilities, including other Russian inspection-satellite activities. We are concerned with what appears to be very abnormal behavior by a declared 'space apparatus inspector,''' Poblete said.

"We don't know for certain what it is, and there is no way to verify it," she added. "But Russian intentions with respect to this satellite are unclear and are obviously a very troubling development — particularly when considered in concert with statements by Russia’s Space Force commander, who highlighted that 'assimilate[ing] new prototypes of weapons [into] Space Forces' military units' is a 'main task facing the Aerospace Forces space troops.'"

Rattlesnake Bites Back

Drenched in his own blood, Cody Coots had to be carried out of the Full Gospel Tabernacle church, one of the few in the country which still allows snake-handling.

Cody's father Jamie, 42, was killed when a rattlesnake bit him in a similar ritual back in 2014 but that does not put him off performing the same death-defying service.

After he was bitten and collapsed on the ground, Cody asked to be taken to the mountaintop where God would judge whether he should live or die.

But his friend, also named Cody, instead drove him to the hospital where a doctor said the snake came close to severing his temporal artery which would have killed him.

Cody's friend said: "Most people bit in the face are dead in five, ten minutes. I mean, his own daddy got bit in the hand and within seven minutes was dead. Read more at Horror moment US pastor is bitten by a deadly snake during a service leaving him drenched in blood


Cape Cod 'Summer of Sharks'

Beach goers along Cape Cod are being told to use caution after a shark attack and multiple shark sightings.

On Friday, Barnstable police said there was a great white shark sighting off Barnstable Harbor and urged everyone at north side beaches, including Sandy Neck and Millway, to use caution.

A short time later, Sandwich police said that a fisherman reported seeing a shark near his boat.

Coast Guard Beach was also closed for an hour Friday due to a shark spotted within 50 yards of the shore, officials said.

On Thursday, the Cape Cod National Seashore said a shark was seen in the waters off Race Point Beach in Provincetown. Video shows the shark feeding on a seal near the shore. Read more at Barnstable beach goers warned to use caution after great white shark sighting
