Buncha' drunken hick stories, mostly. Little reproducible.

Here's a real phenomenon from where I live:

It's called O-Mi-Watari (御神渡, "God's Crossing"). Rapid temperature changes on the lake's surface cause these trails of ice to shoot up in meandering patterns across the lake. Haven't seen it this year yet, though.

Most bizarre were the many reports from residents all over the state [of Connecticut] of horrific screams coming from nowhere.

The horrific screams were from residents that suddenly realized they lived in Connecticut, which is basically nowhere to begin with. Mystery solved for this one.

I lived about 60 miles inland from Pawleys Island and have seen the Gray Man. It was right before Hugo, we went down to the beach to watch the retards that were surfing and I saw him. I knew who he was and what was going on, it wasnt a dream or hallucination. It was sort of weird the feeling I got when I saw him, like I was looking into another world or something. It was pretty cool.

My home town was home to a serial killer who was a barber and cut my hair once too. Pee Wee Gaskins was his name. Some of his family still lives in the area I hear

Relatively Obscure: Okay, I chuckled when I eventually got to Tennessee.

Well that whole thing sucked but Maine in particular got ripped off. How is that "unexplained"?

45cal: Was thinking they would do the strange lights from the Upper Peninsula whose name escapes me right now. There is even a sign at the park that tells about them but they still don't know how they are formed.

they were able to recreate the lights. inversion layer.

It should be legal to kill people who believe ghosts are real. Just to help clean the gene pool.

Pennsylvania could have had prison cell 17 or anything from Gettysburg, but instead they chose to go with prank callers.

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

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?

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