After the encounter
with Todd, Amanda realized that she wasn't tired and it wasn't likely she was
going back to sleep any time soon. So she decided it was a good time to check
her stats on her blog.
She noticed that one
of the links came from the less than savory forum site's paranormal thread. She
sighed and followed the link.

she was abducted. That would explain why she has no memory. Check this
"Oh come off
it," another posted, "She's a Russian sleeper. They're just waiting
for the right moment to wake her. They landed her there by lake Champlain to
keep us off the trail. After all, nothing significant comes from the Northeast,
except stupid libtards. The reason why the government hasn't said anything is
because it's still being run by the libtards, but the POTUS will drain the
swamp, you'll see."
there's always that person who does his/her best to turn a thread into a
political war. Sure enough, there were hundreds of replies. She skipped those.
It was like watching a car wreck. No one likes it when it happens, but when it
does, unless you force yourself to look the other way, you will be there for
hours, staring at the destruction.

posts said. This one seemed to be for the previous post, but maybe it was just
as relevant for the whole thread.
it. If you read her PHP books, she is really smart. She's probably a sleeper
probably more of a possibility than a UFO. If they have been on this particular
site and read the posts, it's likely that any life with some intelligence will
run in the opposite direction, then set up a blockade so that no other race with
any intelligence would be infected with our stupidity."
intelligent life here, move on!"
"I rest my
still bang dat hoe."
Amanda exclaimed then facepalmed. I will not
get sucked in, I will NOT get sucked in, she thought.
Amanda took deep
breath and decided to not read the responses to the last post and clicked the
link on the original post.
It was a website
dedicated to UFOs.
"UFO is an
initialism that stands for Unidentified Flying Object. It may mean that the
object is not of this world, but it doesn't always mean a flying saucer or a
space ship from another planet. It just means that the object has been
officially unidentified. This site is dedicated to being a repository of images
taken of such objects."
Maybe a reasonable site, Amanda thought.
She checked the page
of the meteorite that was seen in Vermont. As it turns out, there were a few
videos that were posted of a bright streak going across the sky and landing
behind the mountains. One showed the same meteorite landing behind the trees.
One was from a dashcam that caught the same streak as they were driving. The
driver and passenger were going berserk.
One person, who was
living on the lake, recorded the meteorite landing with splash. The shaky video
ran through his house and onto his deck. The person on the video was yelling
obscenities that he bleeped out. The camera panned up and in the moonlit sky you
can see the waves on the water.
"Holy, *bleep*! It landed in the
water." There was a lot of rustling sounds as the person holding the
camera tried to keep it steady.
Someone in the
distant background exclaimed, "Did you get that on camera?!"
"I don't… Yeah,
I think I got it." The cameraman said breathlessly. "I-I'm not… sure,
but I think I got it."
The page continued
on. The Government denies that there was any meteorite at all. The videos were
hoaxes. There's no official record of a meteorite in that area. There was no
news report either, which is interesting as nothing really that big happens in the
