Note: possible movie spoiler if you read on...

Ok, so, here's a bizarre coincidence for everyone. My girlfriend at the time (over a year ago) and I both sat home and watched the movie with Milla Jovovitch, "The Fourth Kind". Anyway, in the movie, white owls were supposedly grey aliens in disguise or whatever.

The movie finished around 10pm. A short time after, (around 10:45 pm) we hear this crazy noise outside, horns honking, police sirens, etc. So we go outside, apparently there was a car wreck near the parking lot on the adjacent street before entering the complex parking itself.

We stayed out there and rubbernecked the situation for about 20 minutes, then decided to go back in, it was a pretty minor fender bender. Anyway, we live in Florida, it was last August (very hot month). On the way back in, my ex always liked to look at the stars, or basically just look up like many people do when it's nighttime and while being outside. She noticed two of these snow owls sitting in an oak tree right near our building! No lie, I was completely shocked, and couldn't believe it, with my own eyes, we both saw the owls. 100% true story. I immediately googled "snow owls in florida" after we got back inside, and sure enough, sometimes they do manage to make their way here, so it wasn't as uncommon as I would've thought.

Was just cool to see the movie, then the real deal a few minutes later, just thought I'd share. Hope everybody gets a kick out of my personal experience, I thought it was pretty cool, somewhat weird, but interesting.   :tu:

That is pretty spiffy, especially since owls are awesome*.
Cool coincidence, though.. coincidences always seem to bring a momentary thrill to me.

Just thought I'd follow up the owl conversation with this, in case everyone hasn't seen it yet. I'm a pretty manly guy, but even I couldn't handle the cuteness overload. lol

"White owls were supposedly grey aliens in disguise": I got goosebumps when I read that! I have never heard that before, but let me tell you about something that happened to me many years ago: a friend and I were using a ouija board regularly at the time and the 'spirit' we contacted described 'himself' as a 'Martian'. One night my boyfriend was walking me home along a streetlamp-lined road when a huge white owl flew out of a tree and landed about 15' in front of us. We continued walking and the bird flew up into another tree. I was thrilled with this and I said to my BF, "wow! did you see that? wasn't it beautiful?". He replied, "what? what did you see?" ...... he hadn't seen it!!

The next time I was using the ouija board I asked the 'Martian', "was the owl you?" and he said "yes".

What, in all the world, could I do to earn my living and still live as myself, as I knew myself to be? Temporary masks, I knew, had their place; everyone was wearing them, they were the human rage; but not masks cemented in place until the wearer could not breathe and was eventually suffocated.

No, we didn't report them, it was late, around 10:30 or so. Don't know if Animal Control is 24 hours. Not sure if it would've been a good idea to call AC either, aren't they kind of rough on the animals?

Heh, pretty crazy, wonder what it is with these white owls, almost like coincidence harbingers or something.  :tu:

I remember when I first watched that films & my boyfriend told me that i knew too much about the aliens so they'd come for me at the time they did in the movies (sure it was something like 3:20am?). I set my alarm for that time (I'm soft when it comes to horror films) thinking that they wouldn't come cause i was awake and i heard a big bang downstairs! Nearly died, seriously. But no aliens came ha  :lol:

The owls were just a visual metaphor in the film. The film makers chose not to depict the aliens except for a few blurred shapes and the owl.

Owls aren't aliens.
