Ok, so I know I haven’t blogged in a while, and I apologize. I’ve been busy working on the new website for my new paranormal group, The New York Paranormal Society. Like this blog, we cover all things in the realm of the paranormal, be it ghost hunting, cryptozoology, ufology, and anything else anomalous. I’ve also got a 3-year-old running around and a new job to look for, so something had to be sacrificed. But the site is up, we’ve recruited some new members, and I should be back to making fun of blogging about paranormal news. Like right now. Here’s a story from Metro.co.uk that tells about a man who thinks his house is being assaulted by aliens. Thanks to NYPS member and future blogger here at The Occult Section Shannon Baker for sending this to me:
Radivoje Lajic first came to international attention in 2008, shortly after the fifth meteorite had crashed into the roof of his house in the northern village of Gornji Lajici.
And now, within the past month, another rock has hit the roof of his house, in defiance of all the odds – making it six strikes since the plague of meteorites began in 2007.
Experts at Belgrade University have confirmed that all the falling rocks he has handed over were meteorites. They are now trying to work out what exactly it is about his house that particularly attracts them. The strikes always happen when it is raining heavily, he says, never when there are clear skies.
Lajic has his own explanation, of course. After the fifth rock struck his house, he said: ‘I am obviously being targeted by extraterrestrials. I don’t know what I have done to annoy them but there is no other explanation that makes sense. The chance of being hit by a meteorite is so small that getting hit six times has to be deliberate.’
50-year-old Lajic has had a steel girder reinforced roof put on the house to protect it from the alien bombardment – which he funded by selling one of the meteorites to a university in the Netherlands.
‘I have no doubt I am being targeted by aliens,’ he adds. ‘They are playing games with me. I don’t know why they are doing this. When it rains I can’t sleep for worrying about another strike.’
Now, you have to admit that anyone getting hit by meteorites 6 times during the course of their life is completely weird. I mean, most of us will never have a meteorite hit our home. If it happened once, that would be a rare occurrence. But 6 times? Definitely weird. But aliens? I highly doubt it. Why would aliens use their highly advanced technology to span the vastness of space to come here and throw rocks at some poor guy in Bosnia?
