Subject: 'Found' Anomalies

Greetings List,

I'm always thrilled to run across what I call "found" anomalies
- casual reports of strange goings-on delivered in the midst of
unrelated narratives. They're few and far between, which makes
them all the more memorable.

Here are two gems I've kept for years.

From Thor Heyerdahl's Kon-Tiki - 35th Anniversary Edition,
1984, Pocket Books, page 118:

"We saw the shine of phosphorescent eyes drifting on the surface
on dark nights, and on one single occasion we saw the sea boil
and bubble while something like a big wheel came up and rotated
in the air, while some of our dolphins tried to escape by
hurling themselves deliberately through space."

While the context would suggest that the sighting is of some
kind of squid it sure sounds like a UFO. I don't know if Kon-
Tiki was originally published in Norwegian. If it was, could
any Norwegian speakers on the List compare the original text for
a translation or other error?

Another favorite quote is from big-game hunter Jim Corbett's
Man-Eaters Of Kumaon, 1946, Oxford University Press. Corbett
says on page 17, referring to a bungalow in Champawat:

"I have a tale to tell of that bungalow but I will not tell it
here, for this is a book of jungle stories, and tales 'beyond
the laws of nature' do not consort well with such stories."

While fascinating, this remark may of course have nothing to do
with UFOs. I guess we'll never know.
