Off course: Long time ago there was an woman who had 12 kids and she was so angry and didn`t want anymore so she swored that if she ever got an new kid it should be an devil. Later she got pragnid and borned guess what ?, an devil and since that day the devil has terrorised New Yersey (don`t ask me why) and taken many kids away from people. (Some people also belive that it stolen the independentpapir(i`m not shoore if that word is right))

A second try, a second change...

Oh, and don`t ever make fun of my russian accent English, for Gods sake, i`m a 13yo Norwegian! Don`t expect me to speak this language 100% fluent and expecialy not without tons of grammar and spelling mistakes (Lol, I`m shure there are 6, 7, 8 only in this siggy)...

The thing is, I've heard so many variations to this story. A woman's 13th child was born demonic and flew out the chimney; and is thus the Jersey Devil. I kinda feel it's nothing more than El Chupacabra for the east coast LOL. At least with the goat sucker, there have been goats and other similar farm animals found dead and completely exsanguinated

Oh yeah, and Smeagol1, that egg you have in your signature that hatched March 1st, what is it. I mean it's a black egg. Isn't supposed to hatch into a creature or something?

The thing I never understood about that story is why would she wish for her next child to be a devil? Wouldn't that just make her life harder? "Well, I've got twelve kids. If I have another one then I hope it's a demon! Yheah, that's gonna help matters".

Sounds like a real nice urban legend to me, but you won't find me hanging around the pine barrens without a double barreled shotgun. tongue.gif

Well, as of today, my husbands obsession has grown. He spent ANOTHER day over there(we are from PA) and got close enough to ask a bunch of locals some info.. them claiming the fire department burned the building down to thwart random gawkers like my husband.. my husband found the foundation of the building though.. nothing more...

I have no idea what this proves.. he went touting his camera and knife..LOL!

sounds pretty cool, but if you could birth a demon by wishing, we would have a lot more of the things going around. i guess.

I also watched a couple of shows on the  jersey devil, i sorta remember hearing that a indian put a curse on the woman, not sure though it just something i remember, they also showed the remains of the foundation, they went in search of it that night and don't know what they heard could have been faked but it sounded like a cougar or something and they all took off back to their car, sounded also like something was stalking them

by the way frank one of my fav. movies in donnie darko thumbsup.gif

i heard that the Jersey devil was nothing more than a person who has not evolved into a modern human, but instead chooses to live life as a neandathal back to basics, (so to speak). However how he/it/she could of managed it in this day in age is open for debate.

In preperation for a short story I was writing, I did quite a bit of research into the Jersey Devil.

Little seems to seperate the Devil from other local urban legends at first. Upon further investigation you'll find that THOUSANDS of people reported encounters with the Jersey Devil in a one-week period in 1909.

Most of the good stuff is here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jersey_Devil

However, its a bit dissapointing (and funny) to see what is a commonly accepted representation of the Jersey Devil (found in that link).

After all that hype, he doesnt appear to be very threatening...

For some reason this story has always scared me. it's like a scary bedtime story. It reminds me of the mothman at times. it's an intresting story, and I guess there are still blood related people still alive and search for teh devil still. Kind of creepy, but I would do that to.
