The remains of the windmill (left) allegedly destroyed by a tentacled UFO
Of all the negative effects for which the wind turbines are responsible, I just discovered one I hadn't even thought of. It seems that they have the ability to make you stark raving mad. I've come to this conclusion after reading some articles about a windmill in Conisholme UK.
This windmill has the dubious honour of being the first windmill (that we know of) destroyed by a UFO. This out of this world event happened on Jan 4, 2009. A 20 metre blade mysteriously fell off a turbine at Conisholme wind farm. Not only did the one blade fall off, but another was badly damaged. The residents of Conisholme claim that they saw strange flashing tentacle shaped lights above the wind farm the night it happened.
One gentleman recalls looking out the his window and seeing a massive ball of light with tentacles going right down to the ground over the wind farm. He thought it strange, but mistook it for a hole where the moon was shining through, that is, until he saw the tentacles. "It looked just like an octopus", he said.
Perhaps people who live in Conisholme are used to this sort of thing, but I have a few reservations about the whole thing. First of all, if I looked outside and saw giant tentacles coming out of the sky, I'd be hightailing my ass out of there. Secondly, if something like this happened to a windmill in our area, I'd be rolling on the floor laughing, but I wouldn't be telling reporters that I thought it was a UFO. When you say stuff like that, people start to think you're nuts. But since the windmill loving people of Conisholme don't seem to be worried about this, I think it's a done deal. Living in the proximity of windmills makes you nuts. Stark raving mad.
