Leadership Lessons from a US Army General Maj Gen John Gronski (retd) - burst 11
"A gunnery. Sergeant michael burkhart was the who was the explosive ordinance disposal team leader went down to that site with two young marines and they were going to conduct a post blast analysis to determine a tactics techniques procedures insurgents. Were using so we could try to prevent these attacks from happening again in the future and when gunny burkhardt got down there with two young rains was chaotic. The soldiers were cisterna. Seen the ad that a chaos there were two reporters from the omaha world herald newspaper there there were embedded reporter so anyway going burkhard gets down. There sees the destroyed up. Armored humvee sees a crater near that up armored humvee bow four feet in diameter a couple of feet deep makes an assumption that that's for that roadside bomb that destroyed that humvee was placed jumps down into crater. Take a closer look as soon as he did that. He realized he made a mistake because he could see in the dirt in front of him to artillery shells. Red detonation cord running in the nose was a roadside bomb. That an insurgent have placed their so. He took his k bar knife. Cut the red debt. Detonation cord to neutralize that roadside bomb. He didn't see a third artillery shell into dirt behind him in that crater. An insurgent was off in the distance. Hit a button. On a that nation device that artillery shell exploded not going burkhardt about fifteen feet into the air lands on the dirt road unconscious pants soaked with blood. Our soldiers call a medevac helicopter. Ride away go up tomb start. Cut his pants off. Start tending to his boons after few minutes burkhart regains consciousness. The soldiers couldn't believe that and and he's laying there and he asked the soldiers if he has both of his legs because they had no no sensation from the waist down. They sure to me had both of his legs. They continue to work on 'em couple minutes later. He gets a tingling sensation in his legs. He tells the soldiers he wants to stand up. Soldiers couldn't believe that this guy had just gotten blown up and so we struggles to his feet. He standing there to soldiers around him. The medevac helicopter comes in lands on the ground behind them. The soldiers point to the stretcher On the ground in front of the misogony. We've got you know. Gotta put you on a stretcher and carry you to that helicopter. He looks at the soldiers and he says i'm not going to have you carry me that helicopter on a stretcher. I'm going to walk there under my own power. Because i don't want the insurgents of the pleasure of seeing me being carried that helicopter and easy. He says that he raises his hand into the air and gives the insurgents which i will call a one finger salute reporter reported from the omaha world heritage takes a picture of him standing there Groin protector. you know. In in front of his private area there. No pants on finger thrown up into the air soldiers around him. You'd say the helicopter the background. That picture became an iconic picture of the iraq war but what is deleted Point of the story. And the reason i tell this story and the reason. I think it's important. The leadership point of this story is member told you. He had two young marines with them that day. He knew he was going to have to recover from his wounds. He knew what all the roadside bomb attacks were getting that those two young marines were going to have to be out there probably later on that day routes realizing roadside bombs. The reason he wanted to walk to that helicopter instead of being carried there had nothing at all to do with what he thought and surgeons for thinking. He wanted to walk to that helicopter so we would not shatter the confidence of those too young marines. Pseudo leadership point is even after getting blown up ten minutes earlier. His main concern was not with his own wounds. His bank concern was with those two young marines. Who he was leading an isn't that what leadership is all about. And we talked about that looking out for the welfare of those you lead rather than your own welfare and that's exactly what gandhi burkhardt exemplified that day. And that's why. I like to tell that story that i read read that story. I had to read it again. Because i was laughing because i could just see i. I have friends who are marines right by the way. There's no such thing as an ex marine okay. the just doesn't exist. I've been told that countless times by my friend there's just no such thing they they may be quote unquote have retired at the end of their name. But they're still all. And and and i just thinking about them go. That's exactly what jimmy would. That's exactly what he would have done. That's what bob would have done. He would have done the same thing. I i can. Just see it. I just great story but it was truly the surprise in that lesson was not. I thought it was going to be resiliency. It is but the point is that he cared so much about making sure that those other two young marines were their that their mental emotional state was not shaken. Yeah and you know jay that think about this as leaders we face adversity almost every day in whatever organization were leading the some degree and and sometimes things get tough honest and the point is as a leader. You can't be thinking. I'm an figuratively. I'll use this. You know you can't be thinking. I'm cold i i'm hungry. You know i. I'm shivering right. No you you've got to show those you're leading that you know what i've got the resiliency to overcome this. And because i do you have the resiliency to overcome. They might be called. I might be hungry. I might be weak. But i'm going to take care of you before i take care of myself. And that's the essence of leadership. We underestimate the modeling of behavior. Don't we when it comes to leadership absolutely. Yeah and you know what the other thing i learned in my forty years of leading soldiers also leading teams in the business sector. Is the people you lead are always watching you practice. You know you could. You could put down in writing. What your leadership philosophy is or you could verbally give some guidance about behaviors. You're looking for but those you lead are going to be watching to see you. Know how do you adhere your own guidance. Behaviors that you're looking for you. Exemplify those behaviors and your followers are always watching and your actions speak so much larger than larger louder than your words. Do

Now where you just seconds ago arrived from his a figure in a robe of pure white silk hood drawn head down you cannot see their features their hands clasped together in front of them under the folds of this long robe related is gonna kinda gather himself begin slowly cautiously approaching this figure but he probably won't have complete amount of time before the others show as you do take a few steps forward. Your vision begins to shimmer. You see double triple even as everything is duplicated in your site just to the edges. The rest is a blur as it begins to shake and move not change in any way but just be disturbed. The figure starts to stand. Do you continue to walk toward it. The you bet your bottom. Do as you take another step forward your vision breaks even further as if the very surface of your eyes. We're glass that.

"the herald" Discussed on Flash Fantasy: Rift Walkers
"Herald sees all. There's the herald lewis speaking of riddles again. Then we are inside place pointing towards one of these symbols. that's situated near a franz foot orlando asks. If ron what does that one say history check please. In eighteen nights they herald has long. The herald speaks for us all quite appropriate for the voiceless herald. If you ask me so the hetero cannot see yet it sees all their herald cannot speak yet that speaks for all but perhaps they herald is not one but many randy are. Do you remember the last time that we are here. We a group of seguin's who lived in valley and they could not leave here but apps. This riddle means that they are all somehow connected to mattera. Perhaps it would be in line with. I believe these basic sanguine theology. But let's keep looking perhaps. Are there any more symbols on the ground. Plenty related is going to pick two or three just trying to go through and see we can find. Actually there's there's really only six of them arranged in sort of a pinwheel of patterns around a center etching that contains nothing than just for mechanical purposes. Can me end or no or both due to the equivalent. Four history checks to saving the rest. Go for it. You want to know noah gateway. I don't think that one worked nineteen and four. So four as you're reading along at honestly doesn't make sense and you're inclined to move to the next one. The fron rolled a not twenty and got an eight for the other one man. Some real highs and lows harboring reading languages. So as you read your your first one it to doesn't make much grammatical or linguistical sense in any way shape or form and you're inclined to also move onto the next one this one here. The herald has no hot. The blood of the herald runs in of knock maters. Children does go along further with what she had suggested earlier front. This one here says the herald is cursed. The herald is freed by the curse. I don't know about you. But the more we read the more. I feel like it is perhaps specifically those people that we had met previously although we do have limited information. I'm not sure. Perhaps we must free them from developing. If i recall correctly the last time we were here they said that they were the only thing the only hope they had the escape was even which we now have well and can i take a look around. The disc is like just floating in space or does it kind of is it like a stone platform amidst field or some other walkout into no. It's a it's a stone platform as you. You could walk to the edge in. It seems to extend down just infinitely into the darkness before running out of your vision. You can continue to. if you'd like. Try to decipher the other. Two runic messages. Sure let's go for it. I'll take a look at the one. That reese was was looking at and i'll take a look at the one that a fraud was looking at massive seen again. I've got an eighteen so relaxing. Dear is able to read his. I if ron this is what you meant to say. Last time it's the herald calls us. All the herald's call must be answered. Well rolando but ups. You showed the threat to study a little. This was simple. translate they herald. Speaks from the void. Devoid is beyond bus has been examined the middle or no or does that even need to be no nothing. Nothing is in the middle. It's it's blank. It's very smooth stone. Can i investigate like the disc anything in particular you're looking for. I mean my investigation is a twenty four now. So i'm just kind of always investigating. They're just like shifty everywhere. I felt that was very anxious in his anxiety. Has only been like compounded by you. All i'm trying to think if there would be something specific. I think he would look for anything that would potentially be like require activation or like movement. I guess like is there. Any sort of kinetic aspect to this disc yeah. I think that's definitely something you can figure out by just walking around. No it does not seem like this platform is able to be moved as i said if you if you were to peer off the edge just extend forever into the deep down darkness. Yeah and the aren't the moving pieces. It does not seem so. Is that all that's in. The room is literally the disk and we can't see anything else or you still see the starry night. All around you yes would would. They have told near that it was or veil. Yeah okay. i'm assuming that everybody at least is now aware that it's the single if you what you say is true. Then maybe it'd be best to go talk to these single and people. Maybe they wrote this hour. We intended to get to them. Don't know i've never been here before nicer. Have i now. This might sound silly. But i wouldn't be the first silly.

The USS Indianapolis: The Deadliest Shark Attack in US History
"At fifteen minutes after. Midnight july thirtieth. The ship was struck by two torpedoes from a japanese submarine. the torpedo. strike was totally unexpected and the indianapolis went down in only twelve minutes. An estimated three hundred souls went down with the ship. This left however almost nine hundred sailors floating in the water. There were few lifeboats and not everyone had a life preserver. They were floating in the middle of the ocean and no one knew where they were. Little do they know that their nightmare was just beginning stranded floating in the open ocean. There were several problems at the survivors. Were facing the first risk was obviously drowning. The longer you're in the water the greater the risk of exhaustion. The greater the risk of your life vests becoming waterlogged and the greater the risk of drowning. The second was dehydration. You can't drink seawater so everyone would. Effectively be slowly dehydrating especially considering that they were out in the open sun. Finally the most terrifying prospect was sharks. The location where the ship sunk was in some of the most shark-infested water in the world and the sharks. That were there. Were some of the world's most aggressive the oceanic white tip shark. The ship sank in pitch darkness while the sailors in the water could hear each other. They could barely see each other. The sharks were attracted by the sounds of the explosion and the movement of the men and of course blood in the water the first night the sharks mostly attacked the dead bodies in the water. When the sun came up most of the men began to join up and link arms with each other by joining a group in improve their buoyancy. They were able to give each other moral support and they could keep the sharks at bay and a group. The men could all clearly see the sharks. They were swimming under and around them survivor. Edgar herald recorded the scene in the open water as quote at any given time. You could look out and see big fin swimming around and around and around all of a sudden. You heard a blood-curdling scream and you look to see. The shark had taken him under and quote. The men in the water waited for relief to arrive but no one showed up. As the hours passed it went. In today's men became delirious from the sun exhaustion and dehydration. Some began swimming to illusionary islands. Off in the distance some would break away from their groups and started thrashing making them easy targets for the sharks. When someone in the group died they would often push the body away trying to placate the sharks for a while by offering up one of the corpses

"Are no strangers to receiving negative feedback on their stories. Recently, the Miami Herald's executive editor, Monica Richardson, who is the first black journalists to hold that position in the papers, 117 year history. Says she received a racist email. It was really brutal because of the language and the tone and and really the hatred that it portrayed and how this resonates with Different communities at different moments In that email, the sender expressed anger over the Miami Herald's coverage of recent Cuban American demonstrations, which shut down in Miami Highway.

Martinez spoke with Richardson about why she felt compelled to respond. Now, these protests are there about something that we all care about their about fairness. And so that was not the question that I was trying to raise. It was really about people how they handle Being under pressure and that tension on issues of race and so this one was particularly as I said, the word I used. I like to think of was brutal. And so I decided to respond. Monica and you know, there's been a discussion last few years about how much of someone's humanity can go into their job when they are journalists. And it sounds like in this case your humanity came out when you read that email. It did. In fact, I wrote two versions of the column in the first version was very polite, and I came back to it and just wrote it strictly from the heart. Overwhelmingly the response that I got the positive response that I got was from the human community. So the it resonated not just with me as an African American woman, but it resonated with the Cuban community as

"All reports seemed to be of the same thing this roughly seven foot tall gray man with red eyes giant wings. The man would spread his wings and rise into the air without ever flapping them. That's fucked up shit like what are the wings. You mean that. It's not a bird. That's not a bird birds birds. I've seen birds before and they flap birds flat. They do it implies kind of implies like some sort of technology for some reason in my mind. I'm getting in a buzz light year from the toy story movies. He's got this rocket imply some sort of a like a technology rather than wings. Maybe it's like a What do you call it like a bio biotech where they've incorporated like biology technology biotech biotech. We haven't had on sponsor this not once in this episode the episode where. My mother contributed this episode. Did i tell you know affiliation to this episode. But so this man would spread his wings. He would rise into the air with flapping them. It was like he was rising effortlessly to peer the humans that were gawking at him. Inexplicably gawking at him. Witnesses to have seen the mothman state that he can fly up to one hundred miles per hour and jumped from tree to tree in and he looks pretty clumsy when he moves around on the ground. But and like you brought up in the beginning as well. There's all these reports of like the mothman being pretty ripped like he's got abs and things like that like i. I can't i can't help but question. Is he wearing clothes because if you can see his odds it implies this isn't how do i mean we're we're being very gender biased. Here is saying moth man. But if you ain't dangle it actually might be a moth lady like if you're not getting right up there in anathema look but then they would be breasts assuming that mouth mouth folk have breaths breasts but it's legitimate now come on legitimate. It is a legitimate question if these things exist if big foot exists if mermaids exists if month man exists i mean a copy that they're the only one of the species miss they were created in a lab and there's only one of them exists in the entire universe. It implies that there is a species of them that they must be communities of. They must come from somewhere. And that implies breeding reading it implies breeding and to bring is brought to have you bits and bobs. It is thank you for that science lesson. Because as i was watching the movie i i did think that i was thinking really no. It's not a girl. I actually was thinking. It's very very very generalize to say did you see Did you see the statue point pleasant. Yes i did very ripped and very masculine by the way. But you know that's from february no reproductive organ no reproductive unless unless okay again we're we're seeming that being in a slightly him and when we say it's always bipedal it's just something that stands on two legs and has in the face and is at face for that that implies humanoid but what we're what we're kind of their reproductive organs.

"She ended up gathering enough courage to be able to run back to a friend's house. Call nine one one. Both herself and her friends reported seeing the flying man walk up the porch and peer in the windows. It's now we have a peeping. Tom cryptic awesome. I would quite literally shut my pants though. Let's be honest. i would took my pants. If i saw something outside inexplicably set my pants whilst tear paralyzed shooting and can't do anything about it. Because i'm paralyzed all of this. All of this happens around. All of this happens around close to the factories. So you can't again coming back to that thing about You know black mold and we'd fumes from ventilators and huntings might be in furnace fairness leaks and things like that. Is it possible that a byproduct of the tnt making processes possibly tripping people out. maybe maybe maybe Could be blackmailed yet. A man named woodrow from the same area of west virginia reported seeing on november. Second nineteen sixty six. So this is that the as you spoke in the beginning that connection between man this was just a few days before the most popular citing the creature was reported. He was driving along minding his own business as you do when something appeared in front of him and cut him off. It was so bad that he had to pull over to the side of the road. And get out trying to figure out what the problem was when he got out of the car. And he saw Easel hovercraft basically hovering in front of him. Like a literal hovercraft type of thing the side. The hovercraft opens in the stole alien like figure gets out and starts walking towards him would reports that it looks similar to the flying creature that was reported a few days before the incident so this again is shut down things. Start stop working. You can't tell me that there's not some sort of like manipulation control thing going on there you can't. I agree with you on all of those other things. I'm just saying fear doesn't need extra lake. Sometimes this this happened not so long ago sitting in traffic and and it's in the middle like it's ten o'clock at night and there was a man who was out of his car and he's walking past my car in the middle of the street and i locked my door and inexplicably was fearful not inexpensive expectedly powerless paralysed. That's after after. He pressed the lock by. This is where i die so sale. He could have had some of those psychic powers. You know you never know iced but anyway so this guy guy reports that look very similar to the flying creatures. That was reported a few days before this incident. The creature then tries to talk to him. But i'm gonna do this just for the laugh but inexplicably woodrow doesn't understand alien languages. So he didn't respond and he didn't understand what the what the creature was saying to him. So he just stood there staring at it in silence inexplicably. I'm just gonna pepper. Who's gonna pepper that word throughout the rest of the the creature and the creature basically gave up and it got back into top across and it flew away so it sounds pretty much like woodrow inexplicably. A narrowly avoided abduction. Good fan. yes. I think when i was watching the film i actually put in my notes because they loved the quotes so much because because the richard gere is asking the the he says there are more advanced than us. Why not just tell us. What's on their mind. If you're going to give us a warning. Just tell us explicitly explicitly. What's happening and the author says you're more advanced than a cockroach. Have you ever tried explaining yourself to one of them. And that's that's a fair in. That seems like that's what was happening to woodrow. Maybe a cockroach and he was trying to communicate and it was like forget about it. that's awesome. Thank god it's to these creatures are coming here and looking at us like creatures like i really fair a fair assessment most to be muslim. Let's be honest. that's another. Another incident happened in salem in west virginia in the same timeframe of the previous sightings that we've just spoken about newell partridge was sitting at home watching his usual tv shows and it's black and white television. When suddenly he began seeing strange patents. Appear not only where these strange patterns going across the screen but it was in color which is very odd for a black and white tv because of black and white tv. don't make color by itself. He also began hearing strange noises outside of his home so he took his flashlight to the direction of the noise. And and so. Two black bicycle like lights shining at him inexplicably inexplicably unfortunately meals. Doug was also taken the same night and never returned. his dog went missing. That is fucking tragic. That is fucking tragic. That's like the skin walker ranch thing with the dog that got zapped and turned into a pile of ash like leagues alone guys. I would be absolutely gutted or something happened to my dog because of an inexplicable event multi working back in. I've got one more a one more on this one's a real doozy for you. So this is on december fifteenth in nineteen sixty seven tragedy struck on a bridge. I think this is probably the most famous story of the moth man. It is the the the silver bridge which was a very poorly constructed connector between west virginia and ohio and eleven father felt shaking. We job when. I can fucking crazy. I mean if they had gone exactly when they normally go that weekend. I would not be talking to you just it would have been. Let's it. that's crazy so thanks to the mothman like actually kinda the mothman. Your life expected me Select five. Pm traffic was at a high and there were many 'cause stuck on the bridge and the traffic john according to the survivors so there were survivors as you might have been one of them or your family. But according to survive as they saw an approximately seven foot gray creature hovering above that bridge just before it collapsed for a long period of time. People in that area believed that the mothman caused the bridge to collapse high the with digging by the authorities. It was discovered that there was a faulty eibar holding the bridge up not to mention the bridge any weighed about one thousand five hundred pounds at the time of collapse. If you do the research into this incident the mothman is continuously mentioned. So the questions did. He caused the tragedy. They was also this report. I've i've heard about. I've read about that. There was a sonic boom just before the bridge collapses while like this booming sound and the others that think that he calls the stomach sonic boom with his wings flapping his wings caused a sonic boom but many more sightings were reported back by people living in the west virginia highest states all reports seemed to be of the same thing this roughly seven foot tall gray man with red eyes giant wings. The man would spread his wings and rise into the air without ever flapping them..

"So today we're talking about the mothman and one of the most famous stories about the mothman begins at point pleasant in west virginia. The small town had a population of five thousand at the time and was generally considered to be a very quiet little town with a low crime rate. West virginia is in the appalachian mountains. And it's as well known for all of its creepy ghost stories. The state in particular is a hot spot for your sightings and stone. I did not know about that but so much about. You is starting to make sense now. That i do know that we know that you've seen ball. Lightning is the shadow people. And then there's the extra bone in your foot so if there's something that you would like to admit on the podcast now to the public maybe that'd be the time. Are you an alien. I think we just leave it up to everyone's nelson liberty cover blown cover blown nine but it was a very unsuspecting town. Basically nobody in point pleasant was particularly involved or invested in the paranormal so it was a pretty big shock when a group of teenagers said that they'd been chased by this flying man with glowing. Red eyes this happened on november fifteenth nineteen sixty six when roger scott berry took his friends on a little ride to the clinic. Wildlife management reserve mclintock's. That's a difficult word not to make fence if you just dropped over to structure consonant from from that word. The mclintock's mcclintock wildlife management reserve. The nature reserve is very popular with teenagers at the time because they would go to basically hang out and drink and do drugs and do whatever it is that teenagers do but unfortunately for these teenagers. The hangout session was abruptly stopped when they pulled up to an old. Tnt factory located on the nature reserve. Which i'm just going to interject here and say that hanging out altea factory sounds like a terrible idea. That sounds like you're really old idea. You in west virginia so your options are like okay. I suppose if you wanna risky friday night. let's go hang out somewhere where the whole place might blur in just a second. If you think a match or you know wh- jumping out of an airplane. Sure i suppose. I suppose but i'm going to defend my. Tnt factory had not been in service for quite a while so the teens like basic help defense and explore around this old factory when registered confronted the gates they this giant flying creature with glowing red eyes hovering just above the gate so of course roger puts his car in reverse and decides getting the fuck out of any high tails. It back to town because really who wouldn't. Apparently the flying creature took off behind the car and it trailed then for miles. The teenagers were completely paralyzed with fear. Because you know why wouldn't you be and almost didn't make it back to town. But luckily the flying creature got tired of chasing them and flew back to its lair at the tea factory to do supernatural being shit. Whatever it is that what is it that cryptic reaches up to when no one's around and then not scaring the people of being harbingers of doom. Do they just chill. What does it what. What are they games. Something actress solitaire. You know those sorts of that awful solitaire that you plan a windows computer just to pass the time at work. Cards board games but roger. Maybe they all getting together and digging now that famous painting the dogs playing poker like maybe one day. Somebody's going to stumble upon a real all the mothman and bigfoot and things from skin walker on just hanging out having a game of cards that roger basically roger the teenager he was completely scared out of his mind and he he drove directly to the point pleasant courthouse to report what he had seen with his friends. Surprisingly the sheriff who was on duty very seriously because these teenagers were not known for being troublemakers. The sheriff immediately jumped into his patrol car and he drove onto the factory on the nature reserve and but he did not report seeing anything out of the ordinary but he did tell everybody in town about what rajaie and his friends had seen so zero discretion on the sheriff's pod. Keep yourself buddy. Is there some sort of doctor. Patient confidentiality surely. The police should have something like that as well when you have a town of five thousand. Everyone knows everybody's But the next day a large group of townfolk basically out to the nature reserve to catch up the line creature red handed as you can imagine. They did not find any trace of the creature for a for the back story on this factory. I had to look into it and during world war. Two eight thousand acres of this nature as was basically an ammunition factory facility and they were a lot of underground bunkers to create and to house the explosives and these bunkers Essentially just scattered randomly around these eight thousand acres of land and then after world war two. The area became known as the mcclintock. Wildlife management preserve oddly enough to where to go from. Tnt factory to nature of there's going to be a whole lot of chemicals in there and then in the eighty s it was found to be highly contaminated area big surprise highly seminated area full of explosive explosive byproducts so the nature is on the fed federal hazardous waste cyclists and is still currently eligible for clean up. So they haven't done anything about it yet and hunters and fishermen continued to use this area for game but it seems pretty risky to be doing that on a highly site and really. Do you want to eat anything you know. Eat a fish that came from their sissons dodgy but to make matters worse in may two thousand ten one of the underground bunkers exploded due to twenty thousand pounds of unstable materials. Still being in the bunker. So mothman in a that you is that maybe the moth mankind fiddling with stuff underground bunkers and there's obviously a story that the month man's layer is one of these random bunkers serve. Anybody feels brave. And you're in west. Virginia and you wanna go and explore have a look through some bunkers but understand that it might be the last thing you ever do the planet. I have the following day. After and his friends reported flying creature a new mother by the name of muscle bennett witness the same creature hovering above her own car. She was leaving her house and almost made it to car when she looked up and saw roughly seven foot toll flying men with glowing red eyes hovering above the car instinctively. She dropped to the ground with a baby underneath and lay there for while while the man flew above her marcelo reported feeling paralyzed with fear. And again everybody. He sees this. They reported feeling paralyzed with fear. You've got to wonder if he's got some sort of like a psychic kind of thing that he can do people man psychic anything. But it's the same thing with alien abductions extra special power. When you're duchesne's alien abductions. People feel paralyzed expected to be paralyzed alien inexplicably reasonably paralyzed terrified. I think it might be some sort of like a mind. Kind of control have a mind. Control an alien walks into your house right now. Do you think that you're just going to be like. Hey let's play. Some cards. Might be careful. Careful might be fearful good point all right so marcello marcello was reasonably paralyzed with fear and stayed on top of her baby for a few minutes. Covered the baby up..

"I absolutely adore that accent. It is so charming. It reminds me of movies like gone with the wind and like i absolutely i absolutely adored if and when when when i come to america i'm gonna spend as much time as i can in some of the southern states so that i can pick up myself and my southern accent. I i absolutely love the southern accent. I love them. Just hang out with my family. So the the other part of the story that she had told me and she forgot to mention on the call was that sometimes. It wasn't just. Because i when i was doing research didn't run across the hitchhiker's so that was interesting to hear the checker part but sometimes it was a man and a little girl as well. Okay so and she doesn't believe that was the mosman because of course she was really stuck on what happened the wings which is a major point. I but i imagine if you're magical enough to do everything else to get high wings if you wanted to buy but nonetheless. She also said that one of her friends. We're not gonna name her since we didn't get permission but one of her friends was driving along. It was almost in a car accident. And all of a sudden her car screeched to a halt without her doing anything and she heard the flapping of wings feels like the mothman saved her family. Her i am this reinforces my theory. That it's some sort of angelic interventions seriously like that that's fully and again you know. I think the renaissance probably maybe give us idea. Angels look like that i remember. I'm so i'm social. And i'm sure many of the listeners out there or you know somebody out there is going to be able to either. Correct me because i'm wrong about this. Oh be able to give us the actual source of it. But i'm pretty confident. There's a passage in the bible that speaks about angel's not being these beautiful white beings and that you never would actually want to see an angel because they're kind of terrifying to look at. I feel like it's the summary of prophecy the movie..

"Flashlights to read. Helium balloons and thou final scientific series. Is that it could be a large black batch with humanoid features. Oh just getting. That wasn't the last one and also be a heron that got caught in a garbage bag which actually is not a bad theory birds. Flying around with the garbage bag again. Doesn't explain the the cool apps or any or the is like nobody seeing is garbage bag but the sort of flying bag. Yeah maybe the science. That's all we have. I mean the only the only questions i have around the signs minutes related to anything like an existing creature like a bird or a bator heroin or one of those wondering cranes that ended up in west. Virginia is going to be some big birds. Like understand like you the crane. The crane has a ten foot one. Wingspan which is huge bugs. I mean those are big birds. If there were bats of that size or birds of that size regularly in that area you would be able to spot them during the daytime as well as the nighttime they would they would be far more sightings of them. Shortly and any Biologist zoologist would be aware of the fact that there are bats in west virginia of society of an unusual size. What's the what's the line from the princess. Diaries again unusual size to watch some of unusual size and something that is the size of a man with a ten foot wingspan. And it's a bad pretty sure we'd know about it by nal. I'm pretty sure it would be. It would be on a record somewhere. It would be the book somewhere. They'd probably be one in a museum somewhere. I think we'd be aware of that. Must be accounts. Were happening at exactly the same time. So why weren't they speckled through instead of over a five day span between between the five men that saw it and the teenagers which i'm sure will cover and the car this all happened in a very small span so if it were birds you think it would happen just not during this tiny time period year as you mentioned before as well they've been seen in chicago have been seen all over the country so them some wondering butts them getting around and if there if again if they're covering not much distance as well surely about flying from west virginia to chicago which is very unlikely thing that about would even make it that far that surely eat truly people in states along the way would have been like. Hey what the fuck is that. Big thing over there they wouldn't they would have been there would have been sightings of them as well so i don't know if i'm gonna bind. I particularly do not buy into the idea of a heron coveted in a garbage bag. I can visualize it. But he humanoid features it tastes the way the is device which many people reported different colors. I've been many people. Were reported the reflective also The pre cognition. That people were having before things would happen. Yes and and the fact that people claim that that this has also been a warning. Because most people believe it's a harbinger warning over a huge incidents including nine eleven And the chur noble experiments. so it's just little pub podunk west. Virginia it's sure well on that note we got a coal in.

"Well. It's so good you chose not a good idea. It's a good thing. I never brought up that joke. That's okay so what you gonna tell us. So i'm going to start with a little background on the mothman prophecies because i am from west. Virginia did grow with all of these stories and personal accounts. It was first documented in the late nineteen sixties and there have been several explanations which include everything from. It's a harbinger To warn of cataclismic events and other people say it's an alien life form and there's even been connections to ufo's and The men in most of the story stopped in nineteen sixty seven after the terrible tragedy at the silver bridge incident which we'll talk more about later as far as the science on this topic. Most of it keeps coming to birds different forms of birds by the way. So we have Als sandhill cranes because sandhill cranes have a ten foot. Wingspan awhile. But but it's people who go against that say well the crane's the art native to west virginia however they do wander and they're so there were twenty sandhill. Cranes spotted in west virginia from january. Two thousand seventeen to august two thousand nineteen so the theory is twenty eight wandered and it could be. That has a ten foot wingspan. Some people think it's an owl. That's a big. That's let's big al. But actually they took people and they cut out different versions of the moth man to sorta study it and see if they could determine in the night what size was and they couldn't and so part part of the rationale is it at night. You're at a distance. How big is it. we're not really sure. It doesn't really explain the humanoid aspects of the moth man because supposed to have the wings and you're awesome apps That that how is working out like nobody's business of course attributed to folklore which is natural and most of our episodes as well of course another theory mass hysteria an even keel who is one of the authors the big author that brought mothman to everyone's into everyone's focus so that while he believed that many of the mothman accounts were genuine too because there are too many to be a coincidence. Felt that the media attention. In general hysteria among residents to small towns lead to more sightings from those ear to believe in the supernatural so even the author of the book said he felt like mass hysteria was part of the sightings and then there are also copycat hoaxes. So people say well couldn't it always been a copycat who coaxes and in fact in fact Joe nickell who's a paranormal investigator. But also skeptic said that several the mothman sightings were in fact hoaxes including construction workers. Who tied flashlights to read. Helium balloons and thou final scientific series. Is that it could be a large black batch with humanoid features. Oh just getting. That wasn't the last one and also be a heron that got caught in a garbage bag which actually is not a bad theory birds. Flying around.
