Hairy Humanoids Are Lurking The Sewers Below

Accounts of hairy hominids really run the range of the strange. We have reports from forests, deserts, tunnels, and even places where they have no business being at all, such as the United Kingdom and every state of the United States, yes, including Hawaii. With such a presence across the board, it seems that there are few places where one would not expect to run into one of these beasts, but one of these must certainly be the dank sewer systems that run beneath our feet. After all, why should anything of this nature be lurking down there? Yet, there are more reports of Bigfoot-like creatures than you might think originating from the sewers, and here are some of the strangest. This is some seriously weird stuff, so get ready for a wild ride.

One very odd account comes from the May 14, 1982 edition of the Herald Journal, in Syracuse, New York, in which it was reported that an 8-foot-tall hairy monster was running amok in the city sewers of Buena Park, California. The creature, cleverly dubbed “Buena Foot,” was said to have sparked more than 200 calls to police asking about it or reporting sightings of the beast, and a “monster watch” was even mounted without much success. However, there was one report of some men who had claimed to have used divining rods to find the presence of the creature. The bizarre news report itself says it all, reading:

Police said they have received more than 200 telephone calls from people curious about reports of an 8-foot-tall, man-like creature living in the city’s sewer system. “Buena Foot” failed to appear at a “monster watch,” but two men using divining rods claim they saw footprints and handprints that prove a huge humanoid is nearby. Hundreds of people nationwide have called police to inquire about their safety and the safety of relatives in the area since five people reported Monday, they saw the beast walking down a storm tunnel. “We’ve had 200 to 500 calls easily,” Officer Terry Branum said. “We’re telling people we have investigated the area and found nothing there. Dennis Ruminer, a member of a group called the Special Forces Investigations, which investigates unexplained phenomena, claimed Wednesday he found footprints and handprints of the beast in a drainage tunnel.

We were looking around the mouth of the tunnel when someone shouted, “There’s a track,” Ruminer said. “There were a lot of people around and as we went to look a kid stepped on the track, so we only saw the front part of the track. “It was a humanoid foot with five big toe marks and about 7 inches across the ball of the foot. Before we got a good, clear look at it, another kid stepped on it and completely obliterated the track.” But Ruminer said he and his partner, Tom Muzila, used divining rods to track the creature and went inside the tunnel, where they found a handprint. Ruminer said the team made a plaster cast of the print and took pictures of several other sets of prints discovered farther back in the cave. Frank Missanelli, manager of an apartment building near the drainage ditch, said he heard the beast but did not see it. “It roared and growled just like the dinosaurs in the movies,” Missanellia said. About 100 believers held a “monster watch” Tuesday night, but failed to spot anything resembling the beast.

What in the world was going on here? There have certainly been other reports of strange creatures apparently taking shelter in such dark places, such as an odd case mentioned in the book Monsters of Illinois: Mysterious Creatures in the Prairie State, by Troy Taylor. In May of 1963 there was a rash of sightings of a strange hairy wild-man in the area of Centreville and the outskirts of St. Louis, Illinois, in the United States. The sightings started on May 9 and escalated until the police claimed that they were getting around 50 calls a night from people who claimed to have seen the beast, sometimes right in their yards and with at least one report of the creature attacking a man, although police never did get a view of it themselves. Some reports mentioned that the fierce and bizarre beast had a habit of disappearing down into sewers or tunnels, and one such report came from a group of children, who claimed that a creature that looked “half-man, half-woman, and with a half bald head and half a head of hair” was often seen lurking around a housing project in St. Louis on 9th street and that it had a habit of plunging down into a tunnel on 12th Street. Unfortunately, the sightings dropped off and stopped by the end of the month, meaning we will probably never know what these people saw.

Another case which is hard to categorize originates in the rugged Cascade Mountains of Skykomish, Washington, where there is a long abandoned train tunnel called the Cascade Tunnel, where there reportedly dwells a hulking beast with shining yellow eyes. One account of this creature was written of in Brad Steiger’s book Real Monsters, Gruesome Critters, and Beasts from the Darkside, in which a witness called “Dave” tells of a frightening encounter within the tunnel. The witness says that he had gone to the tunnel to investigate the reports and take some photos, and that when he was about 40 feet in he had seen the glowing yellow eyes of the creature himself, remarking that no normal animal’s eyes shone like that. The eyes apparently belonged to an indistinct, massive shadowy figure standing out in the dim murk that was reported as standing at least 9-feet tall.

Startled, Dave fled to his truck in a panic, and as soon as he got in he claims to have heard a loud, metallic bang from the tunnel entrance, which was enough to send him roaring off in his vehicle. A few days later, Dave went back to the site with some other people who were curious as to what he had seen and they would also see the yellow eyes peering from the darkness. None of them would ever go back. Was this a Reptilian humanoid of some kind? Was it a Bigfoot using the tunnel as a shelter? Was it a ghost, spirit, or some other supernatural entity? Interestingly, there have been Bigfoot reports from that very same area, but the glowing eyes seen here seem to be a remarkable detail.

Speaking of hairy monsters in the sewers, from Linda Godfrey’s blog we have a case of what appear to be actual “werewolves” running about the sewers of the town of Minot, North Dakota. Godfrey claims that she had first gotten wind of these reports from a mail sent by a witness she calls “Pete,” who said that he had apprehended a burglary suspect who had quite the outlandish tale to tell. She writes of the account and even touches on a similar account as follows:

“The guy [burglar] went on to explain,” said Pete, “that he and a friend of his were fooling around by a large culvert down by the river. (This particular culvert is about six feet across, easy for a man to walk in. It is inside the city of Minot and leads right out to the bank of the river.) The suspect said that he and his friend had seen something in the shadows that was about seven feet tall. He told my friend that they had also stepped on what they thought was a body while they were walking in the culvert. He stated that he and his friend had run out of there. “The suspect had said that werewolves were living in the sewer system. While this sounds, of course, crazy…I have been noticing a few things since hearing the story: The city police department has had a couple of calls within the past couple of months concerning manhole covers being displaced, or off of manholes around town. Normally I wouldn’t think twice about those types of calls, but it now strikes me as odd.”

Personally, I’ve never been able to shake that mental image of two criminals stumbling over a dead body as they flee the culvert after spotting a seven-plus-feet-tall “something” watching them from the shadows. And Minot may not be the only place where people should take extra care around city water and drainage systems. In “Monsters Among Us” I shared the story of a brother and sister who claim to have seen something similar in a Los Angeles suburb. And Minot does boast a river and lies near several wildlife refuges so the habitat is certainly there.

Very odd, to say the least. Moving out of the United States we have a rather outlandish report given on the site British Bigfoot Sighting Reports, concerning what is referred to as the “the Beast of Barmston Drain,” supposedly a a “half-man, half-dog” creature that emerges from the sewage to terrorize the countryside of Hull, in England. Some of the reports have been truly dramatic, such as one witness who actually reported having seen the monster jump over an 8-foot-high fence with a full-grown dead German Shepherd in its jaws. The beast has acquired the nickname “Old Stinker,” and Hull historian Mike Covell has supposedly had over a dozen reports of the creature roaming along the drain, even going so far as to organize a “werewolf hunt” to try and find it, without much success. The drain itself is officially called the Beverley and Barmston Drain, built in 1798 to drain the salt marshes of the area, According to Covell, the drain has a long history of tragedies orbiting it, and British Bigfoot Sighting Reports writes of his research into this:

He has uncovered hundreds of tragedies, spanning the length of the 23-mile-long drain, the earliest being the death of 19-year-old Master Teesdale, who drowned in July 1824. Mr Covell says more than 100 people have drowned in the drain, including a double suicide where two young lovers bound their hands together and jumped in. He said: “Master Teesdale was the first, but then men, women and children followed almost at a rate of one a year. The summer months were the worst, when children would swim in ‘Barmy Drain’ and it got so bad that Hull Corporation openly discussed paying for lifeguards to be stationed along the drain during the hotter months. “It has a very dark history but walking along it during the day, it is a peaceful oasis surrounded by heavy industry.” The year 1892 was a particularly terrible one, when an unknown boy was pulled from the drain in May. In December of that same year, George Sowen killed his two children, aged four and six, and threw them in the drain before he jumped in himself and drowned.

Does this tragic history have anything to do with the creature said to lurk here, and is it perhaps more spiritual in nature than a flesh and blood creature? Or is is all tall tales and urban legends? Although the reports are rare and scattered, one wonders if there is anything to them all, and Covell claims that many of the witnesses are honest people who have nothing to gain from telling such stories and who genuinely seem to be afraid of what they have seen. Covell has said of how it has grown since his initial reports:

It was a bit strange but this couple, who I have known for years, are trustworthy and very sincere people. They were genuinely scared by something, I’m just not sure what. If it was just these two people seeing something, I might start getting suspicious, but other people came forward with similar stories. I have walked the drain a couple of times armed with recording equipment, during both day and night, but it’s not the kind of thing you can openly ask people to participate in – ‘would you like to come looking for werewolves with me?’ Even I think it sounds crazy. But everyone who has reported sightings have been really down-to-earth people who are shaken by their ordeal.

The sewer doesn’t exactly seem to be the most prime of locations for hairy hominid reports, but still these cases remain. What is going on here? Are these spirits, ghosts, interdimensional interlopers, or actual real undiscovered creatures using these dark, dank places to hide? While such reports are rare, they illustrate that the phenomenon of hairy humanoid monster reports is even more bizarre than many people may think, and it all goes deep down the rabbit hole of the bizarre.

Earth is threatened by asteroid collision a day before US elections

A refrigerator-sized asteroid could hit Earth a day before the US presidential election , which is scheduled for November 3. American astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson announced this on his Instagram page.

“Asteroid 2018VP1, a refrigerator-sized asteroid in space, is speeding towards us at over 25,000 miles per hour,” he wrote.

At the same time, the scientist assured that there would be no particular harm from such a collision, since the asteroid is relatively small in size. According to Tyson, if “the end of the world comes in 2020, it is not the fault of the universe.”

According to NASA, the probability that an asteroid will enter the Earth’s atmosphere is 0.41 percent. It is expected to flyby at 384 thousand kilometers.

Asteroid 2018 VP1 was discovered on November 3, 2018. It belongs to the “Apollo” group – these are asteroids whose paths cross the earth’s orbit.

No protection from dangerous asteroids

Humanity does not have the technical ability to prevent a large asteroid from falling to Earth. Currently, there are no such opportunities. The only means is to notify the population. However, we cannot predict where on Earth the asteroid will hit. The orbit and angles of entry into the atmosphere are determined with an error. It turns out that one asteroid can have a whole track from possible points of impact, which can stretch for half of the Earth.

The origin of life when an asteroid falls

Japanese scientists studying the origin of life on Earth simulated on an experimental setup the conditions that arise when an asteroid falls into the ocean. It turned out that with such an event complex organic compounds such as amino acids are formed in water.It turned out that the shock produces amino acids such as glycine and alanine, which serve as building blocks for proteins involved in many biological reactions.In the early stages of development on Mars, as on Earth, falls of meteorites and asteroids were common, and the formation of amino acids induced by impacts could well be the first step towards the origin of life, scientists say.

US presidential election

The US presidential election will be held on November 3. The current leader of the country, Donald Trump, is running for a second Republican term. His main rival is Democratic candidate Joe Biden. 

According to the data on the number of views in the past debate, Biden’s speech was watched by 600 thousand more people than Trump.

Most states vote in whole or in part by mail. Earlier, Trump called Biden “the worst presidential candidate in history” and jokingly promised to leave the United States if he loses the election.

“Ummite Letters” of Aliens. KGB experiment or shocking truth?

Collage LIFE. Photo © Getty Images, © Shutterstock

Once upon a time, Europe was flooded with information from the alleged residents of the planet Ummo, and defectors from the USSR claimed that the KGB even managed to detain and study one of the aliens.

This story began in 1966, as usual, with devilry. Bored students at the University of Madrid organized an esoteric circle in which they practiced table-turning and talking with spirits – a rather strange activity for Catholic Spain.

Once, one of them came up with a “wonderful” idea – to try to call into conversation not the souls of long-dead ancestors and not demons, but aliens. And what was the surprise of young scientists when some “inhabitants of the planet Ummo” from the constellation Virgo responded to the call. Yes, they did not just respond, but began to actively talk with students, telling them about their own planet. They talked so much that one of the students, Fernando Sesma, even published a brochure on this topic.

Had he lived in the Middle Ages, he would have been burned at the stake for communicating with demons, but, unfortunately, the grain fell on fertilized soil. Here and there in the media, there were reports of flying saucers, and the book began to be bought. Sesma was already rubbing his hands in anticipation of profits, but one night, he received a phone call in his apartment.

Contact

A muffled voice on the phone told the student that a resident of the planet Ummo was talking to him, that aliens had been exploring Earth for 70 years and that the last resident troop was landed on the planet in 1956. In the Alps (in a mountainous region that belonged to France), six agents of the Ummite civilization landed from a space “saucer”: two women and four men. They had to not only study the flora and fauna of the planet, but also study the culture of people.

According to the ummit, the diversity of human relations, nationalities and cultures amazed the aliens so much that they decided to postpone official contact with earthlings for a while in order to get to know them better. Sesma’s interlocutor was outraged by the multiple inaccuracies that were present in the brochure, and demanded that the earthling fix the mistakes.

Already in the morning, Sesma considered the night conversation a good prank, but, to his surprise, a few days later he received in the mail a whole pile of documents describing life on the planet Ummo. Each of the sheets was marked with a special emblem. The documents claimed that planet Ummo revolves around the star of Yumma, its coordinates were given right there, and the civilization and culture of the Ummites were also described. It turned out that the structure of their society resembles the era of victorious communism. Each of the inhabitants of Ummo was a neuron of one huge brain, united by a “common soul”. The Ummites were very similar to earthlings, light-haired, light-eyed, and the average height was two meters.

Smells played an important role in the Ummo civilization, there were their own ideas about God, reminiscent of Kant’s ideas, there were also eschatological ideas about the end of the world. The arts never existed on the Ummo, but the Ummites were good engineers, and all important decisions were made together through some semblance of the Internet.

Since then, Sesma began to receive letters from the Ummites with enviable regularity – every second Tuesday of the month. Letters came to him from all over the world: from America, from Australia, from Africa and even from behind the “Iron Curtain” (from the territory of Eastern Europe and from the Soviet Union). A year later, in 1967, information began to be dictated by telephone, and at the beginning of the summer Sesme was told that the Spaniards should wait for guests: on July 1, 1967, an alien ship would land in the suburbs of Madrid.

An agitated Sesma warned the local police about this, but they only laughed at him.  On July 1, a flood of messages from local residents poured into the Madrid police and local newspapers. All of them saw UFOs in the sky over Madrid, and at the site of the announced landing they found several strange cylinders and ten strips of polyvinyl with the inscription “Ummo” in Latin.

Finally, journalists became interested in the aliens. They found that in Madrid alone, 65 people received letters from the Ummites. The contactees were not only in Spain, but also in France and in other European countries. Some have received letters since 1962. Obviously, the letters and information from the Ummites should have given humans a chance to get used to future alien intervention.

In the Spanish town of Burnet, they even recalled the appearance of strange, very tall, fair-haired people in black suits, who kept themselves apart, and then disappeared somewhere. The result of their appearance was the disappearance of a whole bus with tourists who were never found.

After covering the problem in the media, scientists got involved. The astrophysicist, head of the National Center for Scientific Research of France, Jean-Pierre Petit, was most interested in the question. At first he wanted to expose the invention, but in the process of studying the materials he changed his mind. The data about the science of Ummo were so interesting and difficult to understand that they baffled the scientist, and he began to lean towards the opinion about the authenticity of the documents.

Petyo even wrote once that more than 90% of his discoveries are the result of ideas suggested to him by the Ummites. For example, the scientist proposed to revise the Big Bang theory, since the speed of light is not always the same, and time under certain conditions can flow backwards.

What was it?

Modern researchers of the problem have several versions of the appearance of the Ummite letters. The first version says that the letters are authentic, the Ummites exist. In Russia, they were even associated with a whole series of deaths among ufologists. However, there is still no direct evidence of the existence of the Ummites, and the letters do not carry any fundamentally new information for humanity. Scientists have long scanned the space where the star of Humma should have been, but they did not find anything there.

The second version says that this story is an operation of the special services. For example, the Spanish special services at one time stated that the letters were a provocation by the KGB. Say, in such an intricate way, the Soviet Union wanted to change the political background in Spain, because the country remained practically the only place in Europe in which there was no communist party. Again, there was no evidence, except that the lilac emblem of the Ummites somehow very suspiciously resembled the Cyrillic letter “zh”.

After the fall of the USSR, there were people who allegedly saw the “blue folder” “leaked” to the West, into which the KGB put all documents related to the study of extraterrestrial intelligence. And supposedly it said not only about the authenticity of the letters, but also about the fact that in the USSR it was possible not only to catch, but also to study one of the Ummites. A former KGB officer P. Klimchenkov who fled to the West told about this to one of the American journalists. The third version was that the Europeans became the target of a prank by a leftist youth group, which thus spread their ideas.

But the most popular was the assumption that the Ummite letters were the fruit of a complex hoax, behind which stood a whole group of scholars who disliked the dictator Franco. In 1992, psychologist Jose Luis Peña admitted this, who said that in such an intricate way he wanted to test the readiness of humanity for contact. He was indeed among those who received the Ummite letters. And in 1966 he even claimed to have seen a spaceship with the emblem of the Ummites. By the time of recognition, the scientist had already suffered a stroke and completely lost his speech.

Wait and see

In the 21st century, Ummites communicate with people through tweets. They report that there are now 240 aliens on Earth, that 432 more Ummo agents will arrive in December 2020, and preparations for contact between civilizations will begin in three years – in 2023. Then a certain hierarch with powers will arrive on Earth.

The Ummites have already had their harmful influence on the earthlings. For example, in Bolivia, a sect has emerged whose followers call themselves the children of the Ummo. Perhaps a group of students engaged in table-turning really looked into the abyss somewhere. And the abyss, as it should be, looked at people in response.

“In October the world is waiting for something”: a new catastrophe predicted

In social networks, they began to actively discuss the prediction of Jordan Maxwell that in October 2020, humanity will face an unprecedented catastrophe.

This spring, Maxwell revealed that he knew about the coronavirus back in 2019.

“I said it would come 6 months ago,” he said in April.

He explained that he has a best friend, he is an astrologer, but not an ordinary seer, but a genius, the level of Nostradamus. He told him that people would be tested by the stars “a kind of new biological weapon that will hit the world.” Moreover, the apogee of disasters falls on October.

“In October, the world is waiting for something that no one has ever seen before,” Jordan said.

According to him, this month will bring problems to all countries on the planet. Unrest and riots will break out in many places. But in the end, the world will go through a “death experience”.

“In October, the whole world, humanity, all countries will be involved in some kind of major ‘shutdown’ that will cause political and social unrest on a scale that we have never had to face before. It will be a tremendous, incredible disaster. “

Earlier, the soothsayer also noted that people can go crazy and start attacking each other all over the planet.

Maxwell’s prediction is now actively discussed on social networks around the world. Moreover, supporters of various conspiracy theories are actively involved.

“If people start going crazy and attacking each other all over the planet, which he says will happen (we already see this, albeit on a smaller scale, in the USA), then I would say that the trigger is for this ( although there will be many other factors) there will be 5G, “one commentator wrote
