Broadcasting live from the KTRH studios in Houston, George Noory hosted an evening of Open Lines with a special hotline for people who believe they've encountered the 'Grim Reaper.'
Abby said she had left the door to apartment open one day, and came back in to discover the Grim Reaper sitting on her couch. She claims her hand passed through the cloaked figure when she tried to touch him. According to Abby, Death told her, "I know how you can get 200 dollars," and after she refused his offer, he vanished.
Jeff in Nashville recalled the time he purportedly came face-to-face with the Grim Reaper. He said he fell ill at his girlfriend's house and went into a trance-like state. According to Jeff, he felt two hands press down on his shoulders. A reflection in the television screen revealed two 'minions from the Reaper' were holding him, he explained. Jeff said the minions brought him to within six inches of Death, who had entered the house by walking through a closed, locked door.
UFO Phil also phoned in to share his simple five-question test you can ask your neighbors if you suspect they may be aliens:
- Are you an alien?
- Are you from a planet other than Earth?
- Do you eat people and if so, who?
- On a scale of 1 to 10, how likely are you to attack Earth?
- Do you believe in Tom Cruise?
In the first hour, Richard C. Hoagland of Enterprise Mission discussed various space-related issues, including the new Cassini Saturn images (see them here) and the possibility of life on Jupiter's moon Europa, as well as his hyperdimensional physics model.
Hoagland also commented on a recent National Geographic article about a Russian climatologist's theory that 'global warming' is being caused by changes in the sun's heat output.
