The Fresno Nightcrawlers
Start writing a post

There is a phenomenon that has been popping up in the Fresno, California area for over a century. Strange creatures that walk along the streets at night. These beings, commonly referred to as the Fresno Nightcrawlers, consist of one pair of long white legs and a small head. They appear to be something akin to the monster in Dr. Seuss' "What was I Scared Of?"

These beings are believed to be a species of nonthreatening extraterrestrial. There have been arguments that this is a spiritual phenomenon instead of an alien one, but nobody has been able to account for their strange shape.

Sounds silly, doesn't it? Silly indeed. Though a firsthand encounter has never been reported, the Fresno Nightcrawlers have wandered onto security camera screens before. For the longest time they were regarded as a hoax until the SyFy Channel's "Fact or Faked" did a special analyzing the security footage. The footage is unaltered and appears to be genuine.

Lets take a closer look at these little buggers.

The Fresno Nightcrawler footage first surfaced in the 1990s and has been a mystery ever since. The owner of the footage has never wanted much to do with it and has chosen to remain anonymous. In the footage, two pairs of pants entities walk through the frame.

Have I sparked your curiosity yet? Don't worry, there's more!

The second video footage was caught on a Yosemite National Park security camera in March of 2011. They were hoping to identify a group of vandals who had been stealing and damaging private property. Needless to say, they were pretty spooked to see what really showed up.

Similarly to the previous video, two pairs of pants entities walk through the shot on their way to some unknown destination. It is unclear how many of these entities exist, but both videos show two separate figures. Perhaps they travel in twos?

Their motives are also unknown and seem to have no ties to other extraterrestrial phenomenon. There are not accompanied by any flying saucers or connection to any known cases of alien abduction. So, what do these little leggings want?

While the Fresno public is intrigued by the phenomenon, nobody seems to show very much worry since nothing negative has been associated with the sightings.

These sightings are not a recent development. The local Native American tribe insist that these creatures have been walking around for a long time. They have been accepted as one of nature's mysteries for most, but what if they aren't part of nature at all? What if they are aliens? Where do they come from? Why are they here?

The Fresno Nightcrawlers aren't the most menacing or the most exciting cryptids, but they are shrouded in mystery and definitely count as unexplained phenomena. What do you think about these little guys? Are they some sort of extraterrestrial? Ghost? Maybe they're just a myth all together.

I began suffering the symptoms of PCOS — acne, fatigue, weight gain, and an irregular cycle — when I was about 16, but I wasn't diagnosed until about nine years later.

The symptoms were, of course, frustrating, but I am now thankful for all of the time I spent trying to manage them naturally with my diet, herbs, and vitamins. Now that I am diagnosed, I do take a small dose of prescribed spironolactone which has helped immensely, mostly with my skin.

I'm not one to talk about personal issues, like the first-hand misogyny I experience as a woman, usually because it makes close family and friends uncomfortable. However, I have recently become exhausted with the number of comments I get, so I decided to rate all the ones I received in the past month to prove that misogyny is alive and real.

With the pandemic, so many of my friends and I discussed how it was hard to find new things for date night when so many places were closed. It seems like date nights were just endless nights of bingeing Netflix and stuffing my face with Halo Top and SmartSweets. I tried those other date night ideas like cooking together and playing cards. But even those things can get old after a while. Finally, I had it and decided we need to make date nights COUNT again, even if we had to social distance.

Here are 5 different and unique ways you can spice up date night with your partners.

- Since my late teens, I have had wavy, unruly hair that is susceptible to frizz from heat damage.

- I've made a conscious effort to try and eliminate heat styling products from my hair regimen in order to do less damage in the form of split ends and hair loss.

- When I first tried Tineco's MODA ONE Smart Ionic Hair Dryer, I was immediately amazed by how quickly it dried my thick strands and how straight/sleek my hair was with minimal work.

Up to my late teen years, my thick, soft, silky straight hair was the envy of nearly everyone I encountered. I totally took it for granted till my hair began to evolve into being more wavy and unruly with random patches of wavy and straight hair.
