Here is a quote from another thread I posted about the City in Canada recently.
While theories abound, city rep Alisa Thompson explained that the mystery sounds were a city worker grinding a blade on a grader. "The grader
blade needed to be straightened … and it makes a very strange noise. It's as simple as that." Thompson did admit it sounded "like some kind of epic
battle between a Kermode (bear) and (a) UFO, with Sasquatch and maybe a whale thrown in there. That would be great for local tourism."
The city was asked to reproduce the same sound, and was even offered money to do it, but everyone at city hall went silent because they did not
produce the sound originally.
And when a grader blade is bent, you unbend it because no amount of grinding will straighten a bent blade.
that's like a doctor saying he will shave off a few layers of your broken arm to straighten it.
Let's use a bit of common sense here.
First off please refer to the parts where I said I did not fully believe their explanation. If I believed everything I was told I wouldn't be on ATS
However, not looking at all the possible solutions, including what officially is stated, is willful ignorance when trying to determine the cause
of something unexplained.
Secondly do you think a city spokesperson is going to know the difference between a bent blade, dull blade, or otherwise? Assuming, for a moment,
that the report was accurate, that person probably has no knowledge of the process in regrinding a blade for a grader. So they use the terms they
understand or words they just string together for the purpose of their announcement.
This would not be the first, third, or fifty-millionth time in human history where someone said something that other people know would be inaccurate
to the field, but it passes muster for the rest of people.
I took a look at Terrac BC and there are several areas where I could see this kind of work being performed. The land appears relatively flat, so the
sound could carry well. However I'll admit I don't think refraction or reflection would cause it to change dramatically in pitch. AND as I've said
numerous times, the sound is very reminiscent of heavy loads of metal moving against or on metal.
By the way, Occam's Razor would dictate that "common sense" so far indicates it was more likely the spokesperson's story than some planetary super
event, but before you get all up in arms, again: that does not mean I am assuming this is case closed for the phenomena as a whole.
