The New Crop Circle?

How does a 4-foot wide boulder find its way up an 80-foot tree? I love weird stories, but as soon as I heard this one, I thought "crop circles."

Very interesting! I just don't see tornadoes doing that, especially if it happened to more than one tree. Very odd. There is no mention in the story that anyone actually got a good up-close look at the boulders ... as in climbing the trees to have a look. Man, I wish I lived near there; that would be fun to investigate. I think I'll send an e-mail to The Amazing Randi and see if he'll mention it in a future online column of his.

Those UFO "investigators" are a hoot. Why in the hell would aliens stick boulders in trees in a remote forest? Idiots.

And crop circles ... here's my favorite site about those: http://www.circlemakers.org/

When I read it had been dubbed "Gobbler's Rock," I was reminded of "Gobbler's Nob" in Wisconsin. http://www.wnrmag.com/stories/2001/apr01/turkey.htm

My guess is, someone has thought of a clever way to put the boulders there.
