Eternity would get boring otherwise.
Unlike any other living thing on Earth, electric bacteria use energy in its purest form – naked electricity in the shape of electrons harvested from rocks and metals. We already knew about two types, Shewanella and Geobacter. Now, biologists are showing that they can entice many more out of rocks and marine mud by tempting them with a bit of electrical juice. Experiments growing bacteria on battery electrodes demonstrate that these novel, mind-boggling forms of life are essentially eating and excreting electricity.

I know one of my visits was definitely not sleep paralysis because it was in the afternoon on a fall day with my friend/neighbor who brought me to this swimming hole in the woods under the guise that she saw a plane crash.
When we got there, there was no plane crash, and I saw something mechanical? fly out of the woods, which I believe was to distract us. My friend kept saying what is that? I told her we better get out of there, as we turned to run, the air seemed to liqufy, and too my horror this grey thing was maybe 2 inches from my face.
Don't remember riding our bikes home, and we were gone for hours.
I refused to talk about it later with my friend, which I now regret, but something about red eyes stood out, and the grey with the black eyes. I wish I was making this up, but it is true.
So unless we were tazed, and magically transported back home, I still have no idea what happened to us.
My mom says we told her we saw a monster. We were maybe 12 or 13.
This was back in the 70's
