ok here's mine. sorry it's kinda long.
when i was a kid i checked out a book in the school library (part of a series about bigfoot, the bermuda triangle, the loch ness moster, etc.) it was
called "project blue book" a short book describing ufos in a relatively kid-friendly format. my dad saw the book and said, "hey, my uncle worked on
that." he told me his uncle pulled him aside (the only boy, who would become man of the family) and told him the government found a crashed ufo with
"3 skeletons in the desert with 3 legs each." and the reason he told my dad this was because he believed dad would have to deal with this at some
point in his lifetime (dad's still alive, so i guess that's still possible). as a kid i assumed "the desert" meant the sahara lol. later i realized
it was probably roswell. based on his description i think he never saw the aliens (only the most obscure and bizarre cases ever reference 3 legged
aliens, that i have found). i don't think he heard the story directly from superiors, either. i think by the time he heard it, it was distorted by
many tellings and maybe also some sexual innuendo (you know how military guys are). for a while, i wondered if my dad was messing with me, so i asked
him again as an adult. he confirmed it and gave more detail, that the uncle got promoted to (i think) brigadier general at his retirement as an
honorary position. so he was high ranking. i DO think the guys investigating cases for blue book had to know their real job duty, whether it was
"geniune investigation" or "explaining away and debunking".
my mom told me she saw a bunch of ufos as a kid, with her best friend. they were in her friend's backyard at night, she describes it as a bunch of
brightly colored lights zigzagging around in the sky, doing impossible maneuvers.
i saw my first ufo in my early 20's, driving on a highway at night. it could have been military aircraft. a strange formation of many craft, each
with 4 yellow lights forming a diamond shape (not a perfect diamond, the front light was too far ahead) imagine a military jet had a single yellow
light at the nose, tail, and each wing tip, now picture one of those followed by 3 more in a v formation, then another single craft, then 2 more v
formations.... it's easier to draw it than explain
i couldn't count them because the curving hoghway made it really hard to keep track of which
ones were new and which ones i already saw, but there were at least 10 craft with 4 lights each, possibly 16 or more. they flew north along the texas
coast. (i was driving east).
not long after that (maybe 6 months or so) a customer i knew came into the restaurant where i work and said he had a weird encounter. he was driving
east on the same highway during the day and he came to an area where 3 pickup trucks were all stopped, and his truck started to stall. a small white
(i think) ball of light zipped into his truck through the back window. he had to explain this several times for me to understand that the light had
enetered his actual truck, i kept assuming he meant it was in the sky. but it zipped back out, and he started his truck again and came right in for a
drink. he was visibly shaken. he had told a few tall tales before so i didn't entirely believe him, but at that moment a stranger walked in and
asked "did anyone see the trucks stalled on the highway?" turns out he was another one of the trucks' drivers, only he never saw any weird lights and
just couldn't figure out why all the trucks broke down at the same time, in the same place. neither of us told that guy about the light, either... it
seemed too weird.
the last ufo i saw has a much weirder and more elaborate backstory, and i hesitate to tell it. i have always had nighttime anxiety, and i've always
been scared of the night sky. some nights are worse than others. i also have elaborate, detailed nightmares about alien abductions and really hate
to see pictures of "alien gray" faces. in the dreams, i usually feel like the noses are different (from the classic depiction) but when i wake up i
can't remember what the noses actually look like. they are small, but they have some kind of weird shape that's totally different. so occasionally i
consider the possibility that i may have been abducted. or i may be repeatedly abducted. here's my most vivid and elaborate dream, (and least
nonsensical) i'll try to keep to short.
i was on an alien spaceship, but i was somehow also aware that 2 people had breached security at a us military base (although that was somewhere else
and i was never there). i was walking down a hallway with a large group of humans and a hologram of an alien told us all to go through a doorway,
which was a hole in the floor, and the door itself was a pattern of hexagrams (a lot like bee honeycomb) that opened. i went through the door into
another area and i was with an alien that i knew (i think of him as "the anesthesiologist" because he kept me calm) and 3 aliens that i didn't know.
i don't remember what they were going to do exactly, but i remember that I DID NOT want to do it, so i looked to the alien that i knew because i
thought he might be more likely to listen. i grabbed his upper arms and very strongly psychically told him "this is wrong, you know this is wrong"
until he changed his mind. he actually did come around to my way of thinking, and immediately the other 3 aliens killed him on the spot. at that
moment, i 100% knew they were NOT the type of moral, ethical being humans should associate with and they did NOT have my best interests at heart. so
i was immediately resistant to them. they managed to get me into a room with one other girl, and one smaller shorter alien who kept trying to regain
control of my mind, but i wouldn't let him. i wouldn't look at him, i kept my face turned away and kept saying "leave me alone!" he was so focused
on me he didn't notice that the other girl started to feel really sorry for me. she attacked the alien to get it to leave me alone. she ended up
holding it by one arm and one leg and swinging it around the room, she must have bashed its head into something because she killed it. we looked at
eachother and looked down at her arms, the fight had left marks and bruises on her arms. we looked at the marks and looked at eachother both knowing
that meant she would have physical marks on her body as evidence of this when she woke up.
because of this, and many other (usually shorter, less detailed) dreams like it, periodically i wonder about abduction. i stumbled across a few
theories about how to check yourself for alien implants, i thought, hey, what's the harm in looking? the only method i found that didn't involve
serious equipment involved using a strong magnet (it called for a neodymium magnet, which i didn't have, but i have some really hefty refrigerator
magnets) so i passed the magnet over my body trying to find areas where i felt "pulling" like something metal might be in my body. i felt such a
slight pull in only a few areas (particularly behind and to the left of my left knee) that i couldn't rule out it being psychosomatic (all in my
head). so i gave up and went to bed. i woke up the next morning with strange pain in my inner right arm, in one small, localized area. so that day
i tried the magnet again, on my arm i particular, and felt the pulling again, but still it felt too faint to conclude anythi
