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.

Board Games Are More Important Than You Think They Are

They've become a defining part of my family.

Remember when you were a kid and you'd have a family game night? Or your friends would come over and you'd open the game cabinet and play at least three different games together?

Maybe it's just me, but those are some of my best memories from my childhood. My family loves games, board games, and electronic games.

Of course, as I got older, gaming consoles like PlayStation and Wii became more and more popular. That meant that the game cabinet was opened less and less, collecting dust.

Thankfully, I live in New Jersey near the shore and Hurricane Sandy left my family with no power for five days. Sure, it was scary not having power and walking around my neighborhood seeing fallen trees or roof shingles, but we were inland enough to not have had any flood water damage.

No power also meant no PlayStation or Wii games. The gaming cabinet was opened again, this time with vigor. Now, four years later, and I still think about sitting in the dark with a flashlight playing Scrabble with my family.

That was also the week I learned how to play Yahtzee and dominated my dad in every game. My sister constantly was looking for someone to play her to Battleship. We exhausted Rummikub.

The game was already a family favorite, and that's including extended family. Family barbeques had been ending with late night games of Rummikub for at least a year by the time Sandy hit.

We were ready to strategize and crunch numbers, but after day three, we never wanted to a number ever again.

This semester, there's been a surge of board game love again in my family. My sister bought Jenga, which we are currently trying to exhaust ourselves with. My favorite board game also had a comeback: Life.

I loved this game so much that I had the SpongeBob version as a kid. I would play it with my best friend, just the two of us, playing game after game of Bikini Bottom themed Life. Now, I have a car full of "kids" that I've started to make pets in my head. I can handle having five pretend dogs, but not five pretend kids.

I don't know what it is about board games, but my family has always had an affinity for them. We've gone through our cycles of playing video games and card games, but we always come back to the classics. Maybe it's more a defining part of my family than I originally thought.
