    Nothing unusual.

    That's Blue Jacket.

    Tecumseh was in Chillicothe.

    And now, for something completely different.

    More advanced species obviously reduce the number of lights involved in their spacecrafts until they reach an efficient number:

    Chillicothe was the name of where the Shawnee tribe lived. Which moved around so there is no one Chillicothe. Old Chillicothe is also called Old Town which is on SR 68 north out of Xenia. It's also close to where Simon Kenton ran the gauntlet.

    Tecumseh's birth site is not known for sure. A plaque on State Route 68, south of Old Town and Goes Station in Greene County, says Tecumseh was born in the Shawnee Village at Old Chillicothe (now Old Town). Some historians believe he was born in the Shawnee Pickaway settlement on the Mad River, west of present day Springfield. All agree, however, that Tecumseh was born in 1768, just as a meteorite shower lit the night sky. The spiritual Shawnee considered this an auspicious sign and he was named Tecumseh, Flight of the Panther, the Shawnee name for meteorite showers.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    iirc, the last time I was through there, there was also some sort of a marker in a little roadside park on the right as you were going north, but my brain is full of holes, so I could be wrong. The site that was said to be Old Chillicothe was a cornfield at that point.

    I kind of doubt anyone can really point to a spot and say, "This is where Tecumseh was born" with any real accuracy. The Shawnee didn't set up a lot of historical marker signs back then.

    But I think Heath was thinking of the outdoor dramas.


    On another note, why are UFOs always seen near AF bases? hmmmm....

    The theory is that that is why they keep coimng back.... for more light bulbs, because their planet is a WalMart-free zone.

    So let this be a lesson to you earthlings.
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations

    Well, it's perfectly clear to any sane human being that Xenia is the center for terrestrial operation of some alien society. The 1974 tornado was, in fact, a sophisticated weather control operation performed by the aforementioned aliens to raze Xenia in preparation for the building of their super secret Ops center. Now if you'll just look at this little flashy-thing for a moment...
