Other states get UFOs, but the best VA can come up with is the Bunny Man? Lame.

I live in Florida.  The whole place is one whole chaotic mess of unexplained.

Meh, never heard of Oklahoma's lake octopus and doubt most have.

/just like the rest of those

For a state with stuff like the Jersey Devil and all sorts of bizarre phenomenon, the best this slideshow could do is that someone hung some shirts in trees?

Okay, I chuckled when I eventually got to Tennessee.

My favorite -- Rumor has it the beast was once a scientist who was conducting an experiment on goats when things went horribly, horribly wrong.

Oregon -- The Mysterious Rocks of Nehalem Bay

I've lived in Oregon most of my life and I've never even heard of that.

Thanks subby, I like these unexplained phenomena stories.

Many of these I have never heard of.

I like these:
Missouri -- Black-Eyed Child
New Jersey -- The Mystery Shirts
New York -- The Ghost Plane of 1933
Oregon -- The Mysterious Rocks of Nehalem Bay

Pennsylvania -- When A Ghost Calls - I have 2 phone numbers of close friends who've passed several years ago, still in my phone. One of the numbers rings once in a long while. The line hangs up as soon as I answer. Now I just say 'Hi, I miss you..' and hang up.

Listening to 'Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun' whilst reading the slideshow.

I live in Thailand. I don't even know where to begin, but frankly, it's amazing that this place manages to function at all.

The North Carolina poop monster?? Really? It was a fungus! So many other cooler choices in this state. Like the Devil's Tramping Ground, or the road where you can roll up hill.

/durn whippersnappers!

Tennessee made me snicker.

On a related note, we also have one of the coolest and creepiest ghost stories in history - the Bell Witch.

The "El Diablo" blobs?!??!

Oh ffs. We've got so much more in California--most especially the fact that we're, you know, CALIFORNIA.

No way is a haunted elevator at the Landmark Theater the weirdest unexplained thing in WA...

I came in here to decry how I would never make it through an alphabetical slideshow when I'm from Wisconsin, but as always a Peter saved the day.

All I know is that whenever I eat particularly spicy food, I, too, fear the poop monster.

hey, look on the bright side: we are the only US state to have a nuke dropped on us ... by our own government!

Of course they are. All fairy tales.

Who created that crap? The same folks that worried about the mayan prophecy? I got 2 or 3 slides in and gave up.

These seem to be one third unusual non-annual animal behaviours, one third the consequences of fracking, and one third unusual runway approaches.

Speaking as a resident of Gettysburg we have much better ghost stories than the one listed. Took my class on a ghost tour this year and had the head ghost hunter in to discuss how he investigates. It was a trip

/he calls himself a skeptic
//he and I have very different definitions of the word

I think it's scary they would name a nuclear reactor "El Diablo" - The Devil.

Yeah, no one can explain a bunch of stupid ghost stories and hoaxes.

Good old Stull, Kansas. Drive through it all the time. If I ever need a gate to Hell, I know where to go.

On an unrelated note, I would like to add that I've been drinking wine on this fine evening and I just realized now after 10+ years that Fark is way more entertaining when inebriated.

I have a working theory that a lot of the werewolf sightings here in WI are escaped research animals from the assorted labs in the Madison area.  The more you know.

I certainly don't believe the dino sighting by hunters in Georgia, that thing would have been dead with about 4 lbs of lead.

Of course people drown in Sawyers Pond in Emmett. They're all drunk. That's all there is to do in Emmett, drink and screw.

Weird, I was born and raised in Wisconsin and I never heard of UFO's and alien abductions at Bong Park.

Unexplained phenomena of the internet: Not only are articles like this deemed worth the bandwidth to write and publish, but websites all over the globe expend further bandwidth in order to disseminate them as far and wide as possible...even to the extent that the bandwidth they use to do so is more than they can afford to pay for, prompting them to plaster their site with advertisements or to charge users $5 per month.

The Brown Mountain Lights, the Maco Light, Judaculla Rock, or the ghost of Frankie Silvers would all have been far more interesting.

gawd. We'll never be able to live it down. Other states get the Greys with their anal probes. We get Carrot Top.
