An Australian man believes that his misguided desire for a memento while visiting a sacred site has unleashed an infamous curse upon his life and he's willing to travel a great distance to make amends. Steve Hill journeyed to the rock formation Uluru last June and, while there, pocketed a piece of the site, which is revered by the Aboriginal people, in the form of a relatively small stone. Remarkably, he did this knowing full well that there is a longstanding legend that those who pilfer pieces from the site are inflicted with the 'Uluru Curse.'
Telling the Canberra Times that he thought the tale was "a load of baloney," Hill now laments that the decision has tormented him ever since and beyond merely through feelings of guilt. According to him, weird incidents began unfolding in his life from almost the moment he left Uluru. On his way home from the site, Hill claims, his car was essentially attacked by what sound like crazed kangaroos. "Instead of moving out of the way, they were actually slamming into the car," he recalled.
It was then that he began to wonder if stealing the rock was such a good idea and his suspicions were strengthened over the subsequent weeks and months. Find out more about this odd story, including how Hill is not along in being struck by the Uluru curse at the Coast to Coast AM website.
