I've still been receiving a steady stream of emails regarding the Chupacabra post from Wednesday, so I thought I'd check with everyone and see what other unexplained phenomena you all either (a) had experiences with, or (b) just thought were really interesting. Bonus points if you can through out any that are Texas-related, double bonus points if they've got ties to Houston and†triple bonus points if it has nothing to do with stolen kidneys, because I'm so not impressed with that one anymore.
It's probably not initially near as interesting as goat sucking pseudo-vampires or La Llorona, but one of the ones that I remember reading about a while back was how the development of Houston, unlike most large cities, is entirely unplanned, meaning there's no real blueprint behind how it grows.†If it's even partially true, that'd be really nuts. Anyone else ever heard this before, or did I just make this whole thing up? †
