Something was going on. Jason felt it in his bones. Polly was too happy, too cheerful. No woman could be that upbeat and still be faithful to her husband. Jason sat down to a delicious, warm meal every night, and Polly sang to herself as she washed up. What kind of woman could be cheerful doing dishes? Try as he might, Jason never heard anything that hinted of a secret romance. It drove him crazy. Life was not this perfect.
Maybe Polly was seeing the milkman, or the grocer. Jason started getting up early in order to see who it was that delivered the milk. Much to his disappointment, the fellow looked as if he’d been born several centuries ago. Then Jason started doing the food shopping, and checked out every single male employee in the local grocery store. They were either antediluvian relicts - like the milkman - or still in diapers.
Later that month Jason was over at his father-in-law’s house working in the garage when he over heard his father-in-law call to Hank...Polly’s high-school boyfriend. Now he knew! He knew why Polly was so happy all the time. Her parents must have told her that Hank was coming home, and she was planning on running off with him.
Enraged with jealousy, Jason was waiting in the kitchen when Polly got back from church. He was beyond reason. He snatched up a newly sharpened steak knife, howling: “You’ve cut out my heart, now I’ll cut out yours!” Jason leapt around the table and ripped Polly’s still-beating heart out of her chest. Blood streaming everywhere, he sailed out the back door into the dark night and flung her heart, still thumping, over the side of the bridge that spanned the creek next to their home.
Jason cleaned up the blood-stained house with extreme care and buried Polly’s body deep in the woods outside of town. Then he wrote several letters, carefully mimicking Polly’s handwriting, and mailed them to himself and her parents. Within a few days, everyone in town believed that Polly had been secretly seeing a man from the next town and that they had run away together.
Late one evening, he went out to the bridge to gloat in triumph over his unfaithful wife. Polly had gotten what she deserved, he thought. As he stood staring down at the water, he became aware of a vibration under his feet. Da-dum. Da-dum. Da-dum. It floated softly through the air, a simple rhythmic thudding. Da-dum. Da-dum. Da-dum. Jason’s hands began to tingle as he recognized the soft thudding sound. It was the same beat he had felt when he held Polly’s bleeding heart in his hands. Da-dum. Da-dum. Da-dum.
The heartbeat rang in his ears, thundering so loud that he was afraid it would wake the neighbors. Da-dum. Da-dum. Da-dum. Jason clapped his hands over his ears and ran back to the house. But he could not escape the terrible sound: Da-dum. Da-dum. Da-dum. Even the floorboards seemed to vibrate to the slow, steady rhythm. Da-dum. Da-dum. Da-dum. It sounded like a heart-beat. Polly’s heartbeat. Da-dum. Da-dum. Da-dum.
Jason screamed in terror and flung himself out of the house, running toward the bridge as the heartbeat grew louder and louder in his ears. Jason leaned over the railing.
“Curse you, Polly!” he shouted.
Da-dum. Da-dum. Da-dum.
With a wild shriek, Jason flung himself headfirst off the bridge like a diver, and was smashed to death on the rocks below.
Underfoot on the bridge, the pavement still vibrates to the beat of a dead heart. For now and always.
Da-dum. Da-dum. Da-dum.
NOTE: Heartbeat Bridge is located in Ellicot City, MD along Bonnie Branch Road. This tale has been told since the 1860s by people living in the area to explain why a heartbeat can be felt through the pavement by people standing on the bridge. Lon

The following report was posted on the MUFON CMS today (12/7/2012). It details an incident in Baltimore City, MD (where I'm located) on 4/12/2010. The reason I'm highlighting this incident is because similar sightings have occurred in and around the Baltimore metro area for several years...including large triangular craft that appear, then quickly disappear. My database currently includes 34 daylight reports in this area since Jan. 1st 2010. The UFOs have all been very large...either dark triangular craft or large white / silver circular craft. Each appear for a few seconds...then suddenly disappear. Many are seen over parks or large shopping complexes. Baltimore is near many government and military installation...are these experimental craft with the ability to cloak? Lon
1. I was flying a kite across the street from my house with my girl friend and vary young son. I had kite in air playing for awhile about 15 to 20.
2. As I was flying the kite I notice the flash at me as if the sun bounced if this object in the air and hit me in the eye it was slightly to the right of kite and I said to my girl friend do you see that and at first I thought may be its a trash bag or something for the first few seconds but then I started to have a OMG moment and I said Kas do you see that then said yea and I was looking all around the park for other people and their was some people across the field and across the street working but I tried screaming at them but I could not get their attention. I know this was something not of our making not that I know of.
3. I first thought wth is that and I try to be rash so at first I thought it was a bag from a store cause I seen them get blown up like that but as it was it was moving it just stopped and was hovering. I seen these things on tv and I can point out the kind that I seen that was caught on tape man time those round metallic balls
4,5,6 The Object seemed to be spinning because the way this light kept shinning off of it you could 100% tell it was metallic and what came to my mine was mercy because when it was spinning some times seemed liquid like it would see minor shape changing as if it was liquid but IDK really but since that I had a fascination with mercury. I will even Polly graph for this this was not a blimp a weather balloon. I was so mad that I did not bring my camera because I was going to just to record my son. The Object started moving West then slightly NW then what blew my mind the thing just disappeared right in front of me. Now if we have Military Equipment that can do that I swear who do we need to worry about.
Now me and my girl friend was like omg what was that, that was crazy I mean we just saw something I really kinda believed could exist but I really never believe people be abducted and its thats still not their but you can say seeing is believing. But this story is not done a lady came out of no wear or at least it felt like it but apparently she started walking the track and we talking to her and told her what we saw and asked if she seen anything she said no I just got here. Well I thought about going to get my camera but I figure we get ready to rap it up but we started flying the kite again about 20 minutes later the Object appeared right in front of us again sightly sw to my location and I seen this with my own eyes because it I had my kite in the line of site of the orb I started calling my girl and telling her to look again this time it simply ether reflected light from the spinning in to my eye so and then after about 3 seconds it disappeared and this time I ran home told my step father and grabbed my camera but it did not show. My Girl/wife seen it the first time but the 2nd sighting happened so fast Im not sure if she really seen it or says she did to please me.
I think of trying to fly a kite again and seeing if this will happen again but who know - MUFON CMS
