That makes no logical sense for any intelligent creature. You're going about your business, nefarious or otherwise and get stabbed in the eye, which you loose, what creature that obviously isnt a savage monster, would stick around for some more punishment? That seem ridiculous.
In a VERY violent confrontation you can be mortally wounded and not be aware of your wounds - in humans when they are attacked this way, the brain releases a flood of endorphins that eliminate any pain - the body goes into shock and in this state (if your limbs are intact) you may get up, walk around, at least until the shock wears off or loss of blood overtakes you...This is a medical fact which I know from unfortunate personal experience...this creature may have had a similar reaction - life is extremely tenacious...
I suppose the electrical effect had to do with its death. When it expired a charge was released. The lack of body might have to do with the almost timely arrival of fellow creatures which caused the sleep in the humans and the removal of the body.
Yes I suspect you may be onto something here...also my impression is that this may not be the first time that Dan's family had been visited...and that the visitors simply got careless this time...
Maybe it needed to transport (for lack of a better word) out of there but could not do it when Dan was on top of it sharing the good news. When Dan went for the axe it transported? It may have died on the other side... but was not allowed to take Dan with? I do not believe the electric shock was a defensive measure but a result of the move through space.

Someone said they think your crazy for having a knife handy. Anyone unprepared when were in our most vulnerable state is crazy imo.
I have 2 knives that I keep handy 100% of the time.
The black one I keep on the floor by my bed within arms reach. The silver one I have clipped to me wherever I go, I don't exactly live in the cleanest or safest place, there is a bullet hole near the stairs to my apartment and the prior tennents found it prudent to install a secondary caged door....o.O.

This is called BASIC DETECTIVE WORK.
Fact: A man who was attacked by a giant fish beast and forced into a bloody knife weilding conflict with said beast is NOT going to get out of bed the next morning and go an an internet message board to chat about current world events.
FACT: Mr. Tanna posted on ATS all day long on the 2nd, not ONCE mentioning the hell on Earth he had just encountered.
FACT: Mr. Tann's mind set does not seem to have been effectively altered or impacted based on the level of calm and normal type printed in his own responses.
18 posts btween said event to the first mentioning of it on here. I find it more than difficult to believe. That would be the equivelent to having been attacked by a demon on your way to work and then stopping off for coffee and doughnuts.
Some of you people are so gullible it is painful to read your posts. Use some critical thinking for once, instead of blindly believing everything hook line and sinker.
But hey, believe him if you want to. To me this is a huge red flag.

First of all, if there even is a wife, she has not posted a thing. Dan Tanna is typing AS his wife, though I wouldn't expect any of his gullible fledglings to detect the same patterns as well as the over usage of "my husband". Face and neck hanging in shreds....please.
Look how many times John McClane here goes on and on about the rage, and the bad @ss BS references about protecting his family, and the instant victimization syndrome as soon as someone "flames" him. This whole thread is a self serving, flamboyantly desperate attempt at attention and the only thing more trite and pathetic than the story itself, is all the "I believe you posts", and the props hes getting from individuals who will believe ANYTHING.
Call this a flame, I really don't care, ignore me, say whatever you want but if you truly care about truth, regardless of the subject, and want to preserve what little credibilty exists in the average ATS post, then you guys really need to toughen up and stop being OOOOd and AHHHHHd by every cretin with an emotional void , too many beers and a keyboard.
This thread is intellectual cancer, and deep, deep, down inside, I think most of you know it but reality is so boring, you may as well drink another six pack and ask more questions about an imaginary event. I believe in many things, and my mind is always open, but I think the OP is either; mentally incompetent, or 100% grade A full of crap. Choice number 2 is the most viable. I sympathize with those of us missing screws, but I LOATHE liars.
