nWoD? I don't know what that is. And I don't know what they saw, either, I did see something move but not a fucking DEMON. They swear too it, one of them is scared to talk about it cause it freaks him the fuck out, apparently they didn't get no glimpses out of the corner of their eyes, they saw it head on in the lights and watched it take off like a rocket.

That's when I realise I know the guy. He's one of my elementary school teachers, retired several years before. He looks very old, and judging from the things he's saying it seems his mind is long gone. The girls look pretty nervous, so I ask him what he's doing in the woods several miles from home in the middle of the night. He looks confused to hear me say his name, but he doesn't recognise my face. Nevertheless he excuses himself and leaves. The rest of the evening is uncomfortable and the girls are weirded out.

>paranormal as icecream
Just because you have a friendly soft warm and cuddly death machine does not make it any less of a death machine, my friend.

I'm a New Englander. The birth place of the Maine Coon is in my state. Cats are considered apex predators across the world and especially around human civilizations for a reason. They adapt to climates and food sources and will most certainly evolve best to destroy things.

Pic related. This is what you get when you mix a Norwegian Forest Cat with the god forsaken soil and winter of the northern North America. A god damned super predator.
We used to visit my younger brother when he worked at an old gay man's seafood restaraunt called the Look Out Inn. There lived a gay chef named Butch. And he had a cat. a Maine Coon named Elwood. Elwood delighted in eviscerating actual factual raccoons by the boatload, and would stalk the dumpster. I can't tell you how many carcasses the cat has created over the years. An animal that answers to man does not usually have this kind of repetitive success and murder power.

But he loves people. Like all Maine Coons. Loves water, too. Like all Maine Coons.

Foxes have the creepiest shrieking ever, I swear to god.

I once was on my way to a bro and somehow ended up in the middle of a group of foxes that were hiding in a several bushes near a school ground. I somehow must have surprised them cause they started shrieking (possibly to wanr each other of my presence) and boy was that fucked up.

On an unrelated note:
A few years back when we still lived in a house with a garden, we had a bunch of foxes live under our shed. 2 adult foxes and at least 5 puppies (or whatever they are called) that were only a few months old... they used to play in our garden during dawn and dusk before going out to hunt food.

Agreed, Mainefag. I've dug through my families old, OLD copies of the "Foxfire" books (they're compilations of 'lost knowledge' of the pioneer days; everything from cow milking to tree splitting to making split-rail fences; things almost everyone used to know just like most people now know how to drive.) Part of one book covered old stories about mountain lions, except the pumas in question were occasionally black, and were referred to as "painters" (That's "Panther" as warped by various filthy American regional accents, dear Eurobrethren.) The occasional genuine Panther wandering much further north then usual in those early pioneer days, mountain lions with duskier coats mistaken by jumpy men on cloudy days, or legends springing from the "black == satan" connection plus the already-extant dislike of pumas... take your pick.

But it's clear that, even since early pioneer days, nobody fucking likes mountain lions. Anybody who's kept domestic cats knows what I mean - if you imagine that silent hunter's competence in a body ten times as big, with the strength and feral will to kill a man, you know why nobody fucking "trusts" them. At least a wolf will give you warning, run you down with a pack.

But pumas? NOOOOOPE.JPG. Spooky fuckers.

Sorry to burst your bubble, anon, but that particular picture isn't a Huntsman. It's a Sydney Funnelweb.

Sydney Funnelwebs are like Spider version 1.0. They are dinosaurs. Their fangs aren't on pedipalps that face eachother, they're faced down like railroad spikes. And they can rear up and crash down on things, capable of piercing fingernails and soft shoes. Even crush mice heads. And worse, they go *looking* for trouble. Yes, they are the original Headcrab. Huntsmen are actually rather tame and inoffensive. They're just huge and leggy.

At least in Finland you can imagine an encounter will involve wolves or deer. England? Fucking no. Some marching band led by a gorilla riding an elephant, or a riot caused by faulty tea cozies. You never hear this shit happening to Scotland. At least Ireland has some kind of logic with dealing with car bombs and stupid drunken shenanigans. But does England ever get the normal weird shit?

My dad is a lifelong hunter. He's been hunting since he was 15. He's killed dozens upon dozens of just about any animal that it is legal to hunt in the US. And he's indirectly caused the deaths of many more by taking complete and utter nubs out and helping them successfully bag something.

He has, in his life, actually SEEN 3 mountain lions. Two of them were just their hindquarters disappearing into the bushes as he put a light up on them. This man has killed enough bears over his lifetime to feed a medium-sized town for a year, and he has only ever killed one single mountain lion.

That's only partially because they're rare. The other reason is, they hunt by keeping out of sight.

When they catch wind of people, they duck into the bushes and kind of stalk around... sometimes just wary, other times actively hunting you. But at no point are they likely to be flat-out NOT hunting you.

This is very true - I've seen lions in Africa, and they look at you as if disinterested, but you can see their gears working, calculating angles and distances, and you know that if you step into precisely the wrong spot where they know they will get you, then it is your ass.

Although nothing on land has ever scared me like some of the diving things I've posted above (and I'm not even mentioning getting snuck up on by sharks and mantas, cos that's usually not a random encounter- you're looking at them. I've stood twenty metres from lions and been reassured by the fact that I've got a bush knife, and Maasai fight lions regularly with nothing more. You've got a chance. When you have a predator encounter underwater, all you hear is the music from Jaws, and a voice in your head saying "this is not your environment and you can't move very well and OHMAIFUCK WHERE DID IT GO I ONLY TOOK MY EYES OFF IT FOR A SECOND?"

Scarest land animal I ever saw was a tiger. In a zoo. I was peering into the enclosure all like "fuck you tiger, where are you", and then I saw its eyes, about half a metre from mine, and I swear to god I nearly shat myself. There was something incredibly primal about the situation, and the knowledge that it was probably early humans biggest "oops, I done goofed" moment not to spot a tiger when it mattered was pretty humbling.

Man-Cat was gone the next day. Apparently the adoption center employee came back and heard about what happened, then watched the security video. They sent him to another adoption center (Colorado is a no-euth state) probably out of fear that he had now gotten the taste of human blood. Maybe more out of fear that he had finally met his match, and that if we battle'd again, it's epicness would tear asunder the heavens.

Not an encounter but something that happened to a friend of mine.

She worked at a hospital during nightshift cause it's rather easy work, well payed and synchs quite well with university life.
However the bad thing is that she had a warden with a lot of old people so sometimes, they'd die during the night.

And this one time, she checked on someone in a room, some old dude, and noticed he had pretty much every sign that it will be going to end soon for him. He was breathing sudden and strange, he got a pale triangle on his face due to blood pressure sinking... These are the signs old people will die within the next few hours.
So she and a collegue stood in the room and waited for the inevitable. Around half past 4 AM the breathing became more eratic and finally stopped entirely. The man had died. And just when my friend wanted to do the necessary things that have to be done, the moment she took a step forward, the clock (old analogue clock with fingers) in the room stopped and then suddenly spun its fingers in a frenzy until the small finger had finished one revolution.

Actually it's more complex than that.

Spiders only have muscles to move their legs inward, to pull their limbs to the body, so to speak.
When they want to stretch their legs, they have to pump fluid into the leg and it gets bent straight by the pressure alone.

That's the reason spiders turn into theses handy packages when they die.

You say it was around 4 AM. Most radio clocks don't continually check in order to save battery life, and instead usually check every 30 mins to 1 hour, usually on the hour. The clock may have been slightly slow and been losing time, but not enough to trigger the radio re-set on the previous checks, and when it hit 4 it realised it was a few seconds too slow and re-set itself.

I still like the idea of it being paranormal in explanation though.

Still, unless we know for 100% certainty that this hospital had radio clocks, I'm going with the "old man trolls everyone on his way out from this mortal coil" theory. That or pic related.

>> No.16591648

I think you may be looking at the problem in a conventional idea.

Perhaps the old man had become synchronized to the clock itself, and as it lost time, so was he. His heartbeat, for lack of other stimuli, takes on the metronomic tendencies of the clock's "ticking".

When it was prepared to lose its metaphorical shit, so did his internal biorhythm.

See? Not entirely scientific, not entirely supernatural, and it sounds kind of nifty.

Every city has that one crazy guy who everyone recognizes and has a nickname for.
My city has (as I call him) The Beardy Arab. He's a slightly fat homeless middle eastern man. He's got a HUGE osama-style beard and an equally impressive hobo-fro.

Thing is, I see him all the fucking time. Usually he's in the corner of a crossing, staring into the beyond with a calm and enlightened expression. He's fond of popping into existence as soon as I think of him. I've seen him chill in the lobby to the cinema, riding on a bike the other side of town, and drinking found milkshakes as I passed him. He's always wearing that peaceful sagely expression.
