I think *most* of the weird phenomenon occurs in South America and Puerto Rico. In those countries, many citizens accept some cryptids as a fact of
life. Many Puerto Rican farmers will tell you without a shadow of a doubt that the chupacabra is real. There are also many UFO sightings there and
some even believe in an alien base.
So I don't think high strangeness is exclusive to the US. Here, most of us who have interest in such things, don't know if bigfoot/aliens/UFO's etc.,
are real or not and are thought to be a little wacky by other people. Everybody I know, with the exception of a very few, think I'm nuts for spending
time wondering about such things. Most people I know never even think or consider that cryptids, aliens, and ghosts are real. They think such things
are 100% fiction. In the other countries I mentioned, many people claim to KNOW such things exist and even fear them.
Maybe it seems to you that the weird stuff happens mostly in America because of Hollywood? Most shows, such as Finding Bigfoot, Ghost Hunters, UFO
Hunters, etc., are made in America for the entertainment of the world. As a US citizen who does entertain the idea thought that aliens, ghosts and
cryptids could be real, I think those shows are crap and don't prove anything except that they want good ratings but fail miserably. The people in the
US who believe in the strange stuff we're discussing here are definitely in the minority. It isn't a big part of our lives or anything. I know most
"abductees" are from the US and I'm not sure why that is, so maybe that's almost exclusive to us, but I think most of the weird stuff happens
