    Default Most amazing things

    South African, yes. And yep I have many similar stories like that too. Something an under 10 year old should never have to witness

    I saw a couple of big tornados in Texas when I was a kid. We were passing through in my father's truck and they were off in the distance...

    Most people on this site would have seen one of these, but my daughters placenta was so amaazing!! My doula showed me the sa and everything and her cord that was twicce as long as the 'norm'.. It blew me away I have so much respect for them now...

    I once saw a squirrel eat a fully grown live cat on the roof of a house... just joking, I just couldn't think of anything else

    I think mine is pretty low key in comparison, but while in Thailand, my BF and I were hanging out at the end of a jetty late one night with our feet in the water.

    There was a huge moon out, and I was just so impressed with how it was lighting up our feet!

    After a while, I realised that the moon was not shining on our feet, we were in fact stirring up glowing plankton!

    It was so incredibly beautiful! (it also made my fear of being attacked by a shark go away, as we would *hopefully* see it light up before it got us lol).

    Such a treasured memory... Too bad I was a bit high on pain killers at the time though LOL...

    Oh thats horrible Its sad enough for people to be burnt alive but children always make it ten times worse and then some. The things people in these type of jobs have to deal with would be so hard.

    The world's largest colony of Adelie penguins (about half a million breeding pairs) at Cape Adare in the Ross Sea. It was our first step ashore on a trip to Antarctica, and the most awe-inspiring few hours of my life.

    Second most amazing was a beach swarming with King penguins, Royal penguins and Elephant seals on Macquarie Island. Absolute cacophany, and absolute, all-encompassing joy!

    Third is seeing a polar bear hunting a seal in Svalbard - missed it by just a smidge!

    (We are polar junkies).

    The pumas in WA were rumoured to have been released after being pets of the americans stationed at the base near Exmouth, then bred. How true, I'm not sure.

    I stayed at my cousins very old house on their winery, we heard that it was haunted but she said they had smoking ceremonies etc, and there was no activity anymore. One night I dreamt about a ghost, she was a little indian banshee that kept jumping over the bannisters and not letting me go down stairs to get the farm gun to shoot her (kind of understandable, really). Anhoot later when my cousin and her husband came back to the house for the weekend - I told them about my dream. They pointed to a book up on a big library shelf and told me to open it - it was the ghost lady, drawn inside by a person unknown. They had inherited all of the books with the house, so someone else must have seen her and drawn her in it.

    Still gives me chills.
