When I was about 9 I was invited to go out for a day with my pal and his parents. They bought him a small ball with a long elastic, attached to a heavy weight. The weight was shaped like a flying saucer and was about 10" across. and made of tin. It was full of concrete for the weight, and very brightly coloured. There were two bats with it. After about 15 minutes, the elastic broke and we lost the ball. My pal was going the throw the base away but I asked for it as I was fascinated by the colours. When we got home, I went straight to the toilet. I sat there on the loo and had the base in front of me. I was holding it like a steering wheel. Just like a kid of 9, I was making all the tyre screech noises as I drove my imaginary car. It was that heavy that it slipped from my hand and fell to the floor with a thump. I heard it roll to the back of the toilet, then all was quiet. I finished with the loo but when I looked, it was not there. I called my granddad in and told him what Had happened. He thought I had dropped it in the loo but I told him how big it was and told him that it hit the floor in front of me. The toilet was only about 3' x 4' and yet that weight was never seen again. Although it was a bit silly, my granddad looked for it several times in a tiny room and so did I. He had no time for paranormal but he had heard the thump when I dropped it so this one had him beat. I know now, that this is a common phenomenon but it is strange when it happens to you.

That is one silly question. What is silly you ask? A 4th grader believing an object disappeared into thin air?? No, that's not silly at all it's understandable for a 9-year-old. What's silly is a man in his 60's thinking it is what's happened and of the opinion, it's a common phenomenon. Reaching your senior years so lacking in Critical Thinking skills is a pathetic achievement but it had to take a lot of hard work.

Although something prosaic actually happened to it, It would be consistent with the theory of small, natural, intermittent "Einstein Rosen Bridges" (Wormholes) that that are always popping "in and out"---and connect to another time or place.----And the weight simply dropped into one and vanished.--------I have already explained how virtually ALL so called "paranormal" events could be explained in terms of such ERBs on other posts, Indeed the ERB theory works better than the "Spirits" Theory to explain things that are seen and called "Ghosts", etc.---And it is backed up by TWO of the greatest physicists of modern times.---But why don't we see them? We DO ! only we CALL them "Ghosts" and other stuff, but they are EXACTLY what we would expect to see event wise, if we were not confused by the superstitions that originated in times BEFORE there ever WAS PHYSICS.----They said Einstein's "Black Holes" didn't exist either, until later ASTRONOMERS found them.
