A pair of potential Bigfoot sightings, a flying car's successful test flight, and an appearance by the 'prime creator of Earth' in Australia were among the strange, unusual, and enlightening stories to cross our desk this week.
This past week saw a pair of stories featuring possible Bigfoot sightings, beginning with a compelling account from a motorist in upstate New York, who took to social media to report seeing a hairy bipedal creature dash in front of his car at incredible speed. The account was particularly interesting as the witness begrudgingly shared it online "at the risk of ridicule" and actually wound up hearing from several friends who had similar experiences seeing a strange bipedal creature in the area. Meanwhile, a peculiar video purportedly showing Sasquatch lurking alongside an off-road vehicle went viral on TikTok with some expressing amazement at the scene and others scoffing at how it appeared to be fake.
Those who have longed for the day in which a flying car becomes a reality received some welcome news this week when a Slovakian company working on just such a vehicle managed to successfully complete an inter-city test flight with their prototype. The remarkable accomplishment saw the 'AirCar' depart from the city of Nitra, smoothly fly approximately 45 miles over the course of 35 minutes, and land safely at an airport in the Slovakian capital of Bratislava. Demonstrating the feasibility of the vehicle, it transitioned from an aircraft into a car in a matter of minutes upon landing and then triumphantly cruised into the center of the city.
By far the weirdest story of the week unfolded in Australia where a man claiming to be the "prime creator of Earth" disrupted a press conference to air his grievances with the government. The bizarre incident occurred as a police commissioner was addressing the media about a newly enacted coronavirus-related lockdown. Suddenly, a bearded stranger burst through the crowd of reporters and demanded to know if the official had received his cease and desist order. Confusion over the curious interloper was compounded when he subsequently claimed to be God, which understandably led to the man being ejected from the event by police.
