    Once in a while you get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right

    •  Did I see his chopper over Oakland tonight? (1+ / 0-)

      Creepiest chopper sighting ever - two choppers to one side, regular size, flanking one enormous chopper with what seemed to be bombs at the gunwales. Flying very, very slowly along the 580 freeway in Oakland at about 7:30 pm tonight. THe central big helicopter gave me the freaking creeps. I was driving so I couldn't gawk at it but I saw big tanks on either side of it that had fins. They looked like enormous bombs. How could this be?

      I assumed it was some kind of horrible military convoy. Crossed my mind that if a chopper loaded with such enormous bombs crashed into a crowded urban area like Oakland, it could kill lots of people.

      Was it our fearless leader? And what the hell kind of enormous chopper was it that I saw, anyway? I'm going to go google chopper pictures.

        passed over Berkeley shortly afterwards, we noted it at our cohousing common meal, commented on the heavy sound and unusual configuration, matched it up with the Silicon Valley / Napa Valley itinerary and said "yep, that's gotta be it!"

        The "bombs" you saw were probably anti-missile defenses.


        P.S. So in other words, he flew over kos' house at about that time.

          Says he left Stanford campus at 7:20 pm, I saw the copters over Oakland a few minutes later.

          Why in hell does he have to ride in such an ugly mean helicopter? That thing looked like the personification of evil as it hovered over the highway. I was in the car so couldn't hear it. It gave me the holy creeps, and I've witnessed Phantom jets bombing civilians (in Lebanon). I'm glad I wasn't standing on the ground because it would have kicked up my PTSD from the LEbanese civil war.

          Glad I'm not the only one who saw this, it was really nightmare material (and I can't sleep for some reason). At least it wasn't a hallucination. How I wish this whole presidency had been a bad hallucination...

      •  They went right over my neigborhood (1+ / 0-)

        Yes! I saw those three helicopters flying over Oakland also, right about at that time. I didn't get as close a look at them as you did but I sure heard them; they were low and LOUD, louder than jets flying overhead. I figured it was ol' GW heading from his un-welcome in San Jose to what will hopefully be an equally rousing un-welcome in St. Helena.
