    So it's Halloween and nobodies done the traditional 'tell your personal ghost/paranormal experiences' thread. So, here it is.

    Tell us how your house is plagued by the specters of dead canaries, or how you keep seeing spongebob laughing at you in your peripheral vision.

    Or prehaps just something that's actually happened. I recall quite a variety of fascinating experiences related here over the years, and halloweens as a good a time as any to remind people of them! (Yes, I know there are threads like this that happen a couple of times a year, but this is one just to mark halloween)

    So guys and girls, it's time to scare the bejesus out of your fellow members with your true tales of haunted houses, witches and demons...

    One time, I dressed in a sheet with two eye cut-outs for Halloween.

    ...

    Scary stuff, I know.

    Never saw a ghost, don't believe in them. Always loved stories of the unexplained.

    On a related note, I woke up to a local radio station playing EVPs. My radio turned on right when they were playing one of the clips, it was kinda creepy to wake up to ghosty voices.

    I don't have any real proof, but something or someone messed around with my Energon Duststorm while I had the old display.
    Put him back on the shelf one day with the crane arm as support. Came back home to find that he had toppled over because the arm was raised over his head.
    Still puzzles me to this day...

    Well, while at Waverly Hills Sanatorium I spotted a brief glance of a man standing in a doorway. He had a white lab coat and had his hands tucked inside the pockets. Only saw the image for a brief second.

    Then I took this photo in another hallway where a ghost of a dog has been spotted.

    [​IMG]

    The only editing done to the photo is levels and contrast.

    No idea what it is. At the time I took the photo there was NOTHING there that I could see. Motor_Master was with me at the tour he can testify about there being nothing.

    One time I heard a loud noise behind me. I looked behind me and didn't see anything. But then I realized that...


    I just farted.

    To be serious, I had an old "hand-me-down" black bench that used to belong to my great grandmother. She sat on it on the patio all the time. She died and left it to my father.

    I was living with my dad at the time and we had this miniature maltese. Every once in a while, it would look at the bench, across the room from anything like a TV or computer, and just stare. Then he would start growling at it as if someone was there.

    There's an old legend about a ghost which haunts one of the oldest buildings on the college campus here in town.

    Supposedly, it will appear to anyone who proposes marriage at midnight on a given day.

    I'm not quite sure if anyone recalls the war of 1812. But I pretty much live where the battle was. And I live right across from this place called "Todd's Inheritance" (google it). 200+ year old house. There's a graveyard in the back with tombstones marked way back to the 1600's. Never really saw anything though.

    People from the area ask where I'm from, and I tell them I live near Todd's and they flip out. Old friends who used to visit were freaked out by it and got a uneasy vibe. I'm only guessing since I've been here for five and a half years; I'm used to it.

    I think I had a ghost or something in my house/room for the first few years I was here. It would have posters and things fall off the wall. I had x-mas lights around my walls and it would make a chain/line them fall down and hit me in the head. I finally went back to my old pagan roots and explained as long as stopped messing with things, it could share the room with me. Nothing has happened since.

    My Aunt lives in a 200 year old farm house. Doesn't really creep me out much. But I know it's haunted.

    Then there's that indecent in the old theater back in High School. A friend of mine and I were talking in this hallway thing right before you go into the auditorium. It divided the auditorium and the lobby. There is this section in the auditorium where there are no seats, and it's not there for wheelchairs. It's just randomly there in the middle.
    This guy walked in from the lobby and stoped; and asked "How are you girls doing?" then walked into the auditorium. A few seconds later he asked the same question, exiting from the auditorium and headed towards the lobby. He also asked if we wanted to see his tattoo (which was some kind of duck, or bird) then left the hallway into the lobby. My friend and I stared at each other like; "dude o_o he was hot" and ventured after him. Only to be sort of blocked and nearly trip over some students from the drama program from my school, whom were sitting by the door. We asked where the guy went. And they were confused. They told us that we were the only ones they saw go in there, and leave. Another old friend of mine came up and asked what was going on. We told him the story, he told us "I wonder if it was the ghost." "...Ghost?" "Yeah a guy fell from the cat-walk up in the rafters years ago. Remember how they're no seats in that one section of the auditorium? That's because a guy fell out of the cat-walk and landed there."

    We have some train tracks were supposedly in the '20s, a school bus with children got hit by a train. Well since then, the story is that if you park your car in front of the tracks, turn it off and put it in neutral, itll be pushed over and past the tracks by the ghosts of the children. I tried it 5 years ago with my bronco and it worked. It wasnt on a downslope either. Ive also tried it with my wife's car and she cant explain it either. She's a bioscience major and I was surprised that she couldnt come up with an exlanation. Its cool because right before the car starts moving, the back end will vibrate as if wind is hitting it and then youll start to roll.

    What the hell, I'll be serious for this one.

    Three years ago my buddy lived in this house and would tell me all sorts of stories of his girlfriend being posessed and seeing ghosts, his roommate's girlfriend seeing the same ghosts at different times, and hearing weird stuff that sounded like it was coming from off in the distance but I always just laughed at him and blew it off since I didn't believe in it at all. I went to his house a couple times and got a super creepy vibe but I figgured it was just because of those stories he'd tell me were in the back of my mind.

    One night I went over to his place to watch a movie and when we walked in it just felt strange. We were waiting for his girlfriend to get off work so we went to his room and he showed me some guitar stuff he had recorded on his computer. A few minutes later his girlfriend showed up, walked into his room and casually said "Hey by the way there's a ghost in your hallway." Externally I laughed, but internally I started to maybe believe it...it was just that creepy feeling that I got when we walked in the door. So, we decide to watch the movie, and my firned's girlfriend wanted a glass of water but didn't want to go into the kitchen by herself. I said I'd go with her, and really felt for something in the hall as we walked by but couldn't feel anything, although that really super strange feeling was still there. I turned on the light in the kitchen, and nothing was there. I decided to ignore the feeling since it didn't look like there was anything to validate there being any sort of supernatural beings in the house.

    (I included a diagram of the main area below, to help clarify)

    I laid down on couch 1 facing the TV and my friend and his girlfriend sat on couch 2. We started watching the movie, but it was hard to concentrate since that feeling was really distracting. Probably about halfway through the movie, my stomach started feeling really unsettled and I was very uncomfortable. I realized I was hearing this toerrible sounding music, and since I had seen the movie many times before (Tango and Cash) I knew it wasn't a part of the scene. I listened closer and it got a little louder...it sounded like someone playing a guitar who didn't know how, just randomly putting their fingers on frets and strumming the strings. I finally realized it was coming from my friends room (room 1 on the diagram). I tried to keep calm but I was definitely freaked out. The sound stopped and I tried to focus on watching the movie. A little while later, my friend turned around and looked out the big front window and made the comment that it had started to rain. I turned around and looked out the window. The light from the hallway was reflecting in the window, and I saw a silouette of a guy, no older than 19 or 20, walk out of my friend's room into the dining area/kitchen. REALLY freaked out now, I just sat through the rest of the movie, every once in awhile looking toward the dining area/ kitchen, trying to see something to validate what I'd seen in the reflection. Finally the movie ended. My friend's girlfriend went to use the restroom, and the roommates' girlfriend, who we both knew, walked into the living area, stared at my friend and I for a few seconds with this REALLY weird look on her face, then went back in bedroom 2. By this point I told my friend I was out of there, and as I went to open the door, I heard a tearing sound coming from the dining area. On the end of the false wall/ fireplace (where I've denoted a *) my friend and his two roommates had hung several pictures of themselves. They'd been on the wall with tape for several months and had never fallen down. When I heard the ripping sound I looked over and saw one of the pictures being pulled from the wall (the ripping sound was the tape coming off the wall, obviously). It did NOT fall, it looked like someone was slowly pulling the picture off, then let it drop from chest high. I said by to my friend and got the heck out of there.

    [​IMG]

    Other things that went on at the house that I didn't witness:

    -The sound off in the distance sounded like bombs dropping. They said they originally thought their neighbor was playing bass-heavy music late at night, but when they went to knock on the guy's door he wasn't home, and they couldn't hear it outside.

    -My friend's girlfriend woke him up in the middle of the night once and pulled him out of his room to the living area saying they needed to get the horses to the river before the cannons fired. When he called her by her name and told her to stop, she pushed him away saying "Don't call me that, call me by my REAL name."

    -Flying things appearing out of nowhere, divebombing a person only to disappear just before they struck

    -People looking into the bathroom mirror, seeing someone in the shower behind them, then turning around to see nothing.

    -DVDs being knocked out of a shelf (one of the DVD shelves when the slots dip diagonally, so there's no way one could 'fall' out) into the middle of the room several feet away. It was always the DVD Shallow Hal, and when put back into the shelf it would appear in the middle of the room in the same spot on the floor a few minutes later.

    -There was supposedly a ghost living in their front yard who wore a red shirt with a burned/ melted face that would look in my friend's room (room #1). The window was eight feet off the ground. He could also bee seen through the big front window. In one of her 'possession' episodes, my friend's girlfriend told my friend to NEVER let him in. And that bad things would happen if it got inside.

    As a few after-points....my friend's girlfriend is completely down to earth with no mental issues whatsoever. She doesn't like talking about this supernatural stuff. My friend also has an aunt that has always been close to spiritual/ paranormal things and she admits to feeling other presenses in the house as well. The roommate's girlfriend doesn't remember seeing us that night whatsoever. This could easily be sleepwalking, so I'm not saying it was part of what else went on that night.

    Honestly, I was never huge into this sort of thing...but I swear honest-to-god something weird happened that night, and even if they were all coincidences I still felt that weird feeling, almost like my limbs were walking through invisible, very light liquid. And my upset stomach and discomfort were real too...which could definitely be psychological. Up to you whether to believe it or not.

    I totally did that when I was at Fort Sam. The bus story is true, although if I remember right, it wasn't quite that long ago. I looked it up in a local library--all the street names in the neighborhood were changed to the first names of the children who were killed, which is kinda weird.

    Anyways, it's a gravity hill, an optical illusion created by specific terrain features.

    I'm far too lazy for that. And yes I realized I just took the time to write out an explanation half the size of a novel. Oh yeah, and I've seen stuff at band camp that would make German pornographers retch....heh.

    Grimlock_13: You say witnessed the area of the painting being ripped off the wall. It was ripping off by itself? Nothing but air all around it?

    I heard about that on some TV show. Try it some time with baby powder on the back of your car, and supposedly, child-sized hand marks appear where they push you across.

    Yeah...but it was a picture, not a painting. :)  It was held on by tape. Nothing around it at all.
