What does /x/ think of Billy Meiers?
For those who don't know, Meiers claims that he has been regularly visited by aliens called "plejarens" and has produced enormous amounts of photos, videos, physical evidence, and also many predictions on future events and discoveries.
Unlike all other UFO contactees I have seen, whom are basically blatant hoaxes, the Meiers case interests me because 38 years after he went public in 1975, researchers are still analyzing his evidence and experts still seem to be stumped in debunking Meiers.
The evidence I personally have found to be most compelling:
-complete failure in reproducing fake photos and movies as good as Meier's using 1970s technology (ie no digital photo editing)
-Meier's great number of accurate predictions: in 1958 he predicted cell phones, global warming, AIDS, and other modern ideas/objects. He also, in 1976, predicted that mars had water, and claimed jupiter's rings to have a composition different than what was believed at the time.
and this is literally just the tip of the iceberg. It fascinates me the sheer volume of transcripts and photos Meier has produced, in comparison to the evidence suggesting Meier is a fraud.
Obviously skeptics have found a few specific photos to latch on to as proof of Meier's hoax, but until someone explains to me how a 1 armed swedish farmer with no technical no-how or tools made an immense amount of high quality evidence in a short amount of time with no help (or at least, 38 years later no one has claimed to be a "co-conspirator"), I simply cannot help myself from accepting what this man has said as true.

Sup /x/!, first of all excuse my poor english (not a first language for me).
Well I'm currently studying visual arts, and in order to pass this specific drawing course I need to create an artist's book (basicly a work of art with a book format).
So, tired as I am of drawing nude models, fruits, landscapes, and other random cliche shit, I thought, HEY, fuck this, I'm making a bestiarium.
Something like an illustrated recopilation of paranormal, magic, ghostlike creatures, etc ... pretty much anything that would be fun to interpretate and draw (things like big-foot, chupacabras, etc, won't do, we have a very defined image of how the look, and I'm trying to let my imagination shit rainbows here).
The idea is to have a worldmap as an intro for the book, where I would tag the different creatures (according to its sightings), and then create individual files for each one of them, with sketches of how they supposedly look like, and a small version of the legend where it comes from that specifies where does it lives, why or where do they appear, what it does to humans, etc.
I already have a couple of local folklore legends in mind, (will dump them later if the thread gets replies) but I would really like to hear yours.
In case you guys like the idea and reply with interesting stuff I guess I could post results later to get suggestions, critics and just for the fun of getting trashed online.
Oh, I've also been thinking I could add like a little section of "advices" on the book, with tips to repel certain creatures, what to offer them get favors, symbols, elements or items that represent them, etc.
If the story you're sharing specifies this type of data would be awesome and very welcome. If not just dump what you know and I'll investigate the rest.
I AM AWARE OF SEARCH ENGINES, I just thought this collab thing would make the process much more interesting.
So that's it, share share share. (and again, sorry if this was poorly translated and difficult to read.)

When I was 20, I was out of a job and didn’t have any university or plans on going to university. I was basically lost in limbo without knowing where to turn next. I was living at home and spent hours on the internet staying up all night and sleeping all day. I was always a bit of an introvert that preferred the company of me, myself and I. Staying up through the night and disregarding the day was a ‘way out’ of the norm and avoiding people all together. Then I got the ‘classic’ talk from my dad that all kids get when they’re useless, sitting at home doing nothing. I was tired of hearing it, so I decided I needed to move out to continue my lazy, anti-social behavior.
I have family way up north in the sticks. There is nothing around except a couple saw mills and a couple nickel mines. My grandfather has a piece of property that is over 350 Acres of unexplored bush. It was hardly farmable…just a giant section of woods, streams, ponds and rock. My grandfather has a timeshare in Florida, so he was gone for the rest of the year. I called him and asked if I could go up there to live. In exchange I would do lumberjacking for wood to sell and use. I remember his comments exactly…’…Yea…I don’t give a shit…You’re wasting your time up there. No work, no school, no people, no internet. But if that’s what you want, go ahead and knock yourself out…Just don’t burn down my fucking house…’ My bags were already packed, I knew he wouldn’t mind. I told my dad what I was doing. He was pretty much speechless and had a look of concern. He then told me I was wasting my life and should go to school. I told him it was what I wanted and needed to do. We parted ways. I got into my 93’ Civic Hatch that had a shot suspension and bald tires and took a 14 hour car ride to no man’s land. I was happier than a pig in shit.

This is my first time on /x/. I've come here in case some folks can provide some clarity about the causes of certain dreams. I normally wouldn't do this because dream interpretation is speculatory pseudo-science, although some of you may disagree.
I've recently had a few dreams/nightmares that were a bit off-key for me. I've been dreaming about spiders and other arthropods that I'm totally cool with. In reality, I think spiders and other arthropods are really neat critters. But, In my nightmares, I'm terrified of the spiders. Whenever I have a dream concerning bugs or spiders, I wake up in a cold sweat, only to shrug it off, but wonder "Why is my subconscious acting this way?"
I'll provide some recent events with my life that may or may not be concerned with dreams I've been having.
I just entered [community] college last month and am enjoying it despite the new stresses that it brings. With it comes stuff like wanting to be stingy and money-smart, and when I buy something I feel as if I don't need, I get really perturbed and beat myself up over it.
Meanwhile I met a potential girlfriend. She's the perfect combination of pretty and cute, and I definitely feel some sexual tension going on. I can tell she's attracted to me. I really like this chick and we get along great.
The most recent dream I had involved said babe, and a shit ton of bees.
>Be on a date with said girl
>Walking along a sidewalk
>We're doing the whole "get to know each other" thing, talking about ourselves
>A guy who's clearly in a panic who's running in the opposite direction runs between us, knocking her down and staggering me
>Yell "WTF's the matter, dude?!"
>He exclaims "THE BEEEEEEEEEEESS!!! THE BEEES! RUUUUUUUN!!!!!!!"
>Look where he came from
>A billowing cloud of yellowish-black is brewing at the nearest stoplight, enveloping cars and carrying away people
