Zoo

"Lions and tigers and bears,OH MY!"

All through the month of April, Minnie will help me explore the people, places and things that WE call creepy, strange and downright weird. To be honest, Minnie finds almost everything creepy and strange so having the entire alphabet at our disposal is going to be a challenge. You might find what we discover delightful, or you may agree with us. Please share your opinions either way. Have fun road-tripping the Alphabet by visiting others doing the challenge as well.

You can find all sorts of creepy things at the zoo but most of them are not in cages. I feel sorry for the animals that are caged up for human entertainment. The term "zoo" was first used by the London Zoological Gardens, which opened for scientific study in 1828 and to the public in 1847. The number of major animal collections open to the public around the world now exceeds 1,000,000 and around 80 percent of them are in cities. How would you feel if you were put on display in a cage or denied your freedom? I loved the scene in the movie "Five Monkeys" where Brad Pit set all the animals from the zoo free. I admit that as a child I loved going to the zoo and for a brief time I considered a career as a zoologist. Why? Because I love creepy crawlers and things that go bump in the night. Have you been to a zoo? What animal did you love to see? My favorites were the monkeys and the bears.

Last letter of the alphabet and it has been a challenging month for me but I managed to blog every day. I wish that I could have had more time to visit my friends and make some more new ones but my mothers accident and other obligations has consumed my time. I hope to visit you all soon. So did you enjoy the A-Z challenge? Glad it is over or are you a bit sad like me?

Tomorrow is a holiday and hopefully there will be some sunshine, gardening and Barbecue. Hope you all enjoy the first day of May!

Sometimes YOUNGSTERS can be amazing to the point of strange and unexplained. Don't you love getting the chills? Here are some examples


 
And from Norway:


So today's post may not be so creepy, strange, or weird but for me it is strange that I can still be totally amazed by youngsters 
today whether they have talent or not. Do you know any totally amazing youngsters? I know many... Here are some highlights from Banzaicon 5, an anime convention I help my son arrange each year.

X-FILES

Yes, we want to talk more about Aliens and the government because they both are creepy enough to deserve another letter. What we found out is that the truth IS really out there. You can find it where special agents Fox Mulder and Dana Sculley would never think to look--on the FBI's own Web site.


The FBI has been quietly posting documents on the Net about reported unidentified flying objects, alleged alien abductions, and unexplained animal mutilations. More than 1,600 pages dating back to the 1940's are now public on the site, although most contain blacked-out passages and missing names. The Freedom of Information Act have opened up files that may not reveal all there is to know about the possibility of life on other planets, but they give true believers--and even skeptics--a peek at the government's investigations into decades of mysterious sightings.

There are a total of 16,000 FOIA files online, including details about the 1962 Alcatraz Prison escape, Amelia Earhart's disappearance, and the agency's goods on Marilyn Monroe, Pablo Picasso, Elvis Presley, and Bonnie and Clyde. The agency plans to put up to 1.3 million documents on the Net.  "The institutional bureaucracy of the FBI has always been to keep anything that embarrassed the county or FBI a secret," said Dawson Rambo, who runs an extensive X-Files fan site. Andrus of the Mutual UFO Network suggested that the FBI's Web site itself could be part of a bigger government conspiracy. "The U.S. government has lied for over 50 years about UFOs and now no one wants to be put in the position to admit that," Andrus said. "So they have elected to leak the information out gradually. This latest FBI release is just part of that tactic."

One thing that we still have not learned after the freedom of information act has opened up files for the public is, "What really did happen to John F. Kennedy?" It seems that information is so devastating that a whole Generation has to die out before the truth is unveiled. Have you watched the show X-Files? Do you believe we have been visited by an alien life form? What do you think happened to JFK?

They feed on dead flesh What is more creepy than that? Remember those old western films where vultures scooped in to nibble on the poor dying man in the desert? There are some cultures that put a dead person on top of a mountain to let the vultures consume the remains. I don't know about you but the thought of being eaten by a bird or any other animal even after I am dead is just to creepy for words. I guess being eaten alive, having your bones picked slowly by a vulture would have to be the worst kind of death. What about you, what kind of death do you fear the most?

UFO'S

Unidentified Flying Object...UFO...This could mean many things but the first that comes to mind is flying saucer...ALIENS! The idea of a life form more intelligent then our own is scary. Does such a being exist and if so for what reason would they want to visit us "Earthlings?" Books, movies and television have explored UFO'S and Alien invasion extensively. War of the Worlds, X-Files, Under the Dome, Signs, Contact, just to mention a few off the top of my head.Do you have a favorite?I believe that it is a reasonable conclusion that there are other advanced civilizations out there among the stars. Why not? Our galaxy is a new one in the vast space of the universe. Still I find UFO'S and aliens very scary indeed. How about you?

Some people keep these spiders as pets. Although I do not have a phobia of spiders both Minnie and I find them creepy, especially the big hairy ones such as shown in the video below. Do you have any strange kind of pet like a big hairy spider, a rat or a snake? Just too creepy for me!
