Aports? I didn't believe in them until a couple of weeks ago, but I do now.

"I Got Up to See What It Was.
There in the Middle of
the Kitchen Floor was a
Large, 1/2" Metal Ball Bearing 
Much Like the Type
Used in Heavy Equipment."
Has anyone ever heard of an aport? I have heard of them but didn't actually believe in them, until a couple of weeks ago.

Kim and I were sitting on the couch while watching TV one night, when suddenly there was the sound of something dropping on the kitchen floor and rolling only a few inches. It sounded almost like a marble.

I got up to see what it was. There in the middle of the kitchen floor was a large, 1/2" metal ball bearing much like the type used in heavy equipment. We own nothing that requires this ball bearing, except maybe our car, and I assure you that wouldn't be in the kitchen. LOL

There was no discernible explanation for its presence there. It did not roll from somewhere like a closet. It was in the middle of the floor and had dropped from somewhere. We heard it hit the floor and roll for a short distance, yet there was nowhere or nothing for it to have fallen from.

If we hadn't been sitting on the couch and actually heard this event, I would never have believed it possible. However, I know what I heard, and I know that Kim heard it also. That metal ball bearing appeared in mid-air and fell a few inches to the kitchen floor, where it bounced and rolled slightly, then came to a stop only a second later.

This simple metal ball bearing now means more than it ever would have before. It is currently in my pocket to serve as a constant reminder that we don't know as much as we think we do.

Has anyone else had a similar experience? Please leave a comment or email us at
