Four For Four

1. "Guzzlers" are artificial waterholes distributed throughout the American West.  They are important to the survival of a variety of wildlife.

2. People are not allowed to pump their own gasoline in New Jersey and Oregon.

3. "For decades, people have puzzled over Racetrack Playa, where hundreds of rocks weighing as much as 700 pounds roam across the surface of the dry lake bed, leaving meandering tracks hundreds of yards long."  Now the process has been captured on video.

4. "Americans built more than one hundred thousand kit houses, sold mostly by Sears, in the first half of last century. These were shipped out on boxcars, complete, with between ten thousand and thirty thousand pieces, braces to brads. Midcentury, Popular Mechanics sold several varieties of home designs—the Modern House, the Family House, the Plywood House. There's no telling how many of those were built. Totman's precut house was sold as a concept listing the materials at three prices: $1,800, $2,800, or $3,800."

The Loveland Frogman

The Loveland Frogman story has been going around for a long time now. It started way back in the 70’s and told of a legendary creature inhabiting the Little Miami River. Two different police officers spotted the Frogman on two different nights in March of 1972 which was the first and last reported sighting.
It wasn’t until recently while a couple was playing Pokemon Go nearby when they spotted the creature and immediately snapped a photo of it. Then that night of fun quickly turned into a chilling tale of horror.
“We saw a huge frog near the water,” the witness wrote in an email. “Not in the game, this was an actual giant frog. Then the thing stood up and walked on its hind legs. I realize this sounds crazy, but I swear on my grandmother’s grave this is the truth,” he wrote. “The frog stood about 4 feet tall.”
