    Question Most amazing things

    I want to hear some crazy stories of what you bub hubbers have seen in your lifetime.

    I will start.

    About maybe 6 years ago I was up north WA, I was a nanny. I had an old car to use and I was gettng a booty call one night and on my way back to the house in the morning around 530-6am, head lights on. I was just driving through some farm roads and just touching my head lights I see two very large very black cat looking animals jogging across the road. I mean huge! I looked it up a couple of years later and found that indeed there has been sightings of black jaguars in Australia. I was just in awe of it.

    Thats about the most amazing once in a life time experience I have ever seen. Unbelievable!!!

    BTW Im getting VERY frustrated with my keyboard right now. It just does not want to work and its driving my bonkers.

    I'll be back when the kids aren't fighting.

    I have seen a mini tornado sweep through our property, pulling fully grown trees out of the ground roots and all, tearing half of the roof off of the house and upturning a car, but leaving an empty wheelbarrow standing upright and unscathed and clothing hanging perfectly on the washing line less than a metre away.

    The path it tore through was very specific - you could see a clear line where it had been. This was in central western NSW.

    At the same property I have seen massive cat paw prints in the sand on the driveway which are rumored to be that of a black jaguar. My Dad swears he's seen the creature, but I never have.

    Pumas? I grew up on a chicken farm in outback WA, we had a few sightings as well

    I've had a willy willy throw me from my side of the road to the other and back again doing 120km/h not really amazing, sure as hell woke me up though

    I don't think I have personally seen anything amazing, sad life!

    I'm sorry this made me laugh!

    An amazing story happened to me when I was in high school In Sydney's west, I went home early because I didn't feel right... It was a odd feeling,
    It was a clear sunny day, 15 mins of being home the sky turned black and some random mini cyclone thing ripped thro our little town and I was home so I was able to help my mum gather things in the back yard so they didnt blow away and I was able to stop her from getting hurt from a falling branch!! I told her its time to go inside an as she stepped away it fell.

    A pride of lions eating a fresh kill, IN THE WILD!!
    Having a big male rhino attempt to charge us.
    A wild cheetah asleep in a tree, and my brother and I got out the car to see (big no no as you just don't know what other animals are lurking round)
    Being chased by monkeys (seriously the most scariest thing EVER when you are a little girl)
    Fireflies..seriously so magical when you are in pitch black darkness and you have them everywhere around you.

    Oh wow. All so amazing! Yeah Thermo, that made me laugh
    Bell & Bug, are you African? Raised there?

    My old boss was african and she told me so many stories.

    Finding body parts in the streets and the time (they are white) the black afrians were 'fighting back' against the whites (before they left). She had two pet cheetah cub and the black afrians killed them Also a time when she was a younge girl, someone threw a unarmed granade through the window, she ended up unpinning it and throwing it back.

    She would tell me all kinds of stories from back then. Truely amazing!

    Thats pretty awesome. I have had a few things like that happen but nothing to do with life saving. But yeah you get that feeling and just do something unusual and it turns out to be just in the nick of time.
