Quote# 129299

I know this will generally be scoffed at, but I experienced a supernatural telepathic exchange with a crow on a golf course in Colorado some 16 years ago. I had hit my ball into the rough on a long par 4 with over 220 yards to the green. I was preparing to hit a punch out to set up a reasonable third shot when a crow landed on a branch of an aspen tree 20 feet parallel to my position. I was distracted by the noise and looked at the bird which was staring a hole in me. I heard a clear voice in my head say "use the three wood." I was startled, but played it off as my own mind having fun and addressed the ball with my iron.

The crow cawed again and the voice interjected "take the advice." I was overcome with the thrill of having what seemed to be a bonafide supernatural encounter, and I turned to my back and traded the iron for my three metal club. The crow didn't move but kept watching from his/her perch. One practice swing later, I launched into the ball, and amazingly the result was a beautiful trajectoried shot that landed softly on the green, a one in a thousand outcome for a player of my skill level.

I turned to the bird who had apparently watched me throughout the shot and was overwhelmed with a feeling of gratitude as it flew off without further comment. I have yearned for a similar experience since but nothing of this nature has ever surfaced since. There are indeed more things in Heaven and Earth than can be dreamed of by own impoverished philosophies.

That crow was Randall Flagg in disguise, you twat. Now you've gone and got yourself in debt to him.

So it was pure luck then and had nothing to do with the advice of the crow.

I experienced a supernatural telepathic exchange with a crow

I had the same thing with a hot dog once. It said "bite me!" and smiled. Being a heterosexual male I felt a little uncomfortable doing it, but supernatural encounters are rare, so I complied.

TFW a random crow is better at golf than you are.

You got lucky.

That's how it starts.

One day a bird is telling you to use the 3 wood, the next day the neighbor's dog is telling you to hunt women with a .44.

Y'know who plays golf too?:

In Soviet America, birdies hit you. >:D

If you tinfoil (ass)hatters on GP see signs everywhere, then the above was merely an omen of what was to come: and it's coming to pass.

Okay. What gives with all the wanna-be Beastmasters cropping up over there all of a sudden?

Another one that needs to be stoned for consulting with spirits.

You know, off all things wrong with this, the only one I'm bothered with is the following. Why, of all things, would your spirit guide (or whatever you want to call it) waste its single chance to give you life advice over a friggin' random game of golf? You obviously could use some better advice.

So crows are better with golf than Mr. Meseeks?
