Anyone have any urban legends based on where they're from? I just wrote a hub about some from my part of the world, and in that spirit, I like to know about other urban legends from your part of the world!
If you mix Pop Rocks and soda your stomach will explode, and Little Mikey from the Life commercials died from it.
I tried this, my stomach didn't explode. And Mikey didn't die.
There are many legends in my part of the world, but I think they're the opposite of urban legends...this is the land of Shunka Warak'in and the Nimerigar, not to mention ghost lights and phantom planes.
and...Close Encounters of the Third Kind...alright, I'll admit, we Wyomingites don't have much to do that isn't mind-altering.
I've heard some stuff about, Wyoming. Hey, thanks for your comment. Sure, I would love to hear about the urban legends in Wyoming. I'm always up for anything with some horror in it - anything that even slightly defies our everyday simple reasoning. And besides, they make for good movie scripts. Sure I'm game!
A few miles down the road from where I live there is a spot on the highway where a young girl in her teens died many years back. The story goes that she is still seen walking around on the side of the road looking for her locket.

When you look closely at the tree trunk, you can see the possum trap is embedded within the trunk and is almost completely grown over.
We also have forests in which the Tyepos live. They are responsible for many hunters going missing, to never be found and people think that a place called 'the bonegarden' is where the remains of the missing hunters are.
Hope this helps
That's a lot of great stuff. Could make for great movie material. I should be paying you guys. Lol.

What stories do you have to share? I'll start.The Great Molasses Flood of 1919. On January 15, 1919, a tank of molasses flooded the streets of Boston, Massachusetts after exploding when temperatures reached 46 degrees. A 40 ft wave of 2,300,000 gallons of molasses swept through the streets of...

What are your local urban legends?Where I'm from, Maryland, U.S., we have an urban legend about the goat-man, related to a guy who used to dress up like a rabbit and run around with an axe in the 70s (really!). What are some local urban legends from where you're from?
