Evansville resident here as well. I saw about a dozen videos on my social media feeds of these things. The consensus seemed to be the Starlink theory. The videos were pretty cool.

I grew up about 1/2 hour north of Evansville and I can state unequivocally, it was meth.

You gotta be on meth to see that video.

My family is from Evansville, the ones who stayed.... yeah, not great.

I personally don't knwo what that thing is therefore the only possible explanation it's from another world.

Ugh. Nothing redeeming about the city that I've seen.

I do like Louisville, though.

It really is a drag sometimes.

Dad was born there; he got out.
Dragged us back there for a couple of years when I was a teenager, but we all managed to escape unharmed.

Well I got was about a five second clip of some guys climbing some metal stairs and one of them calling the other a farking pussy. Were those aliens? I'm afraid to go back and look again because I've only got one free article left and something big might happen in Evansville. Help!

Totally StarLink. I saw a launch like that driving between Lafayette and South Bend a few months ago.
 
2021-02-05 5:20:39 PM  
The videos of the guy throwing a beer and of the penguins were more compelling than the UFO

I like using I-69 to leave KY and visit family in Ft. Wayne. Going back, not so much.

I escaped Indiana and ended up in Kentucky. I'm doing it wrong..

CSB: Back in my freight pilot days, the FBO (now called Tri-State Aero) in Evansville would have a hot pizza waiting for freighters coming in for fuel if you called in on the radio about 20 minutes before landing. Between the lower fuel prices, and the free pizza, I know freight-dogs that would purposely plan fuel stops there whether they really needed the fuel or not.

Do you remember where the pizza was from? Evansville, IN is basically nothing but chain restaurants, but we actually do have a few independently owned pizza restaurants. Some decent steakhouses as well.

I despise living in this area, but it is still an insane amount better than where I grew up. Petersburg/Otwell sucked hard. And honestly, for the two years I lived in Henderson, I preferred it for many, many reasons over Evansville. And oddly, I would rank a lot of Kentucky over Indiana. I just despise Indiana that much.

If you ever get the chance, read George Ade's Fables in Slang and More Fables in Slang. They are dated by a century and a quarter but still provide a laugh or two. One of the Fables, "THE FABLE OF THE EX-CHATTEL AND THE AWFUL SWAT THAT WAS WAITING FOR THE COLONEL", ends as follows:

"Next Morning, as a south-bound Passenger Train was crossing the Ohio River, the Porter on the Atlanta Sleeper jumped eighty feet from the Trestle into the Water in order to Escape with his Life."
