Black Stick Men
I feel this way about black stick men. I keep an open mind, but the stories I've heard of these paranormal entities leave me wondering. Black stick men are a relatively new phenomena. According to witnesses, these men are unnaturally tall and so thin that they are two dimensional. They look like stick figures drawn by a small child in kindergarten class. They have no facial features and are a blank slate. They are said to watch people. They don't move fast or attack their victim, but instead slowly follow behind them from a distance. Those who have seen them describe feeling overwhelmed by fear and indicate that ignoring the creatures seems to be the fastest way to get them to leave you alone. One gentleman described seeing one of these stick men on a walk at night. He glimpsed the stick man with the light of a flashlight. He didn't describe any fear or action on the part of the figure. He only described it as there, watching him. This tends to be the standard description of these phantom creatures. They watch and they wait and what their purpose could be is as mysterious as the creatures themselves.
There are many theories as to what these stick men are. Some say they are ghosts or demons and others say they are alien visitors sent to observe us. I'm not sure what they could be, but this is one paranormal creature I tend to think might exist more firmly in the mind of the observer than in the real world. Of course, I am often wrong.
