On Oct. 31, a hiker named Brian Nutall went for a brisk hike in Nova Scotia when suddenly, the Earth started moving. This was no earthquake, nor was Nutall getting frisky with a lady. The ground started moving up and down before his very eyes, almost as if it was breathing.
Nutall did not run. He did not hide. He did not fret over all the crazy stick people that appeared in The Blair Witch Project. Instead, he bravely stood there and captured a dreadful vertical video to document the eerie phenomenon. Nutall uploaded the footage a few days ago to Facebook. Now the video can be seen in various places where it has gathered in excess of a million views. What’s going on here?
Nutall has a theory about his moment near Apple River:
” … the larger trees are doomed to blow down but are currently spared, the smaller trees around them help hold each other up, as the wind pushes the trees into one another. The punishing prevailing winds have taken their toll on the side hill, the roots have loosened and the mossy ground from the once shaded forest floor are giving way, soon to be toppled over…”
NOPE. That’s a lovely description, but this has gotta be some supernatural shenanigans. It happened on Halloween! NASA tries to tell us the Earth “breathes,” but they certainly didn’t have this madness in mind. Voodooo, y’all. Do they have voodoo in Canada?
Nutall’s Facebook commenters have some thoughts too. The Ernest Scared Stupid mention is a nice touch.
