creepy stuff outside of work

  1. I had a strange encounter of the extraterestrial kind.
    when I was 13y/o my mom and I saw a UFO. We were in the middle of this wide open field in my mom's car. Suddenly it became very bright and I looked out the window to see Just how big this full moon was and this great big disc with red and green lights was hoovering above the car, approx. 25' above. It made no noise at all. I was so scared that I couldn't say "MOM!" It was like a dream, but only it wasn't at all. She stops the car and gets out now all the lights go on in the car and I freak out. She gets back in and I look out the window again and this disc just disappears. No noise. Just vanished into thin air. We didn't say a word all the way home except,"Did you see that?" "Yeah, did you?" "Yeah." And that was it. Years later when I said do you remember that thing we saw in the sky? She would get crazy and say, "I don't want to talk about it!" It was just like something out of a sci-fi movie and it scared the living crappola right out of me! Anyone else ever experience anything like it? Just wondering...

    Ummm, no can't say that I have. However,do you ever get the feeling that your not alone when you are?? My sister lives in a house thats about 65-70 years old and I get the major creeps when I have to use the downstairs restroom, and don't ask me to go to the basement!

    Hmmmmmm, can't say that I have had any wierd stuff like that happen? One night in the North California Mountains, we were watching the stars and constelations. We saw a couple meteor's (falling/shooting stars). Then we saw what we thought to be a huge shooting star. Unlike the rest that were red -> yellow -> orange, this one turned bright white. It was huge, and made a woosh, and came what appeared to be very close (??? 100ft off the ground ???) and then exploded. It was amazing!!! I thought it probably was a huge piece of space rock (meteor), because they claim most meteors/shooting stars are the size of a grain of sand. Clearly this would have had to been bigger like maybe, 1-2 feet, before it exploded? Pretty cool!

    Please don't put me in a padded room after reading this. Here goes:

    Since I was a child, I have always had very vivid dreams. Some of my dreams were recurring. In the first recurring dream, I would be floating higher and higher above my house, like a balloon. I would have fun at first, then get scared because I didn't have anything to hold on to. I would try to wake myself up when I was holding onto the top of the pine tree in front of my house. I was afraid that if I let go, I couldn't come back.

    The second recurring dream delt with a dolphin. I would be swimming with the dolphin and it would pull me under the water at amazing speeds. The weird thing about this is that I didn't ever see a dophin, I just assumed there was one there. I never even needed to come up for air. The whole dream was just one big sensation, with very little visual stimuli. I saw some blue fashing lights, like speeding through a tunnel, and I would feel a pulling sensation, but that was it.

    The third dream still goes on today. It started when I was 14. I used to have this dream 4-5 times a night, but now it only happens about once per month. Once again this is purely a sensation dream. I get a tingling at the base of my skull, it travels down my spine, wraps around my feet, and then comes up and exits through the center of my forehead. As the sensation goes further out, I lose feeling in my extremities. I usually freak by the time I can't feel my shoulders, and I wake up. One time I couldn't wake up and the dream continued, and it felt like I was floating just under the ceiling in my bedroom. I was too scared to open my eyes and look down. Some people have told me that I was almost having an out of body experience. I was always too scared to go through with the dream willingly, because it felt like my soul was being ripped out of my body and I was always afraid of dying. I had no control over this dream. The scary thing was that I don't think this was only a dream. If I was very relaxed, this could happen. If this was an out of body experience, I am bummed that I was too afraid to go through with it. Think of all the free vacations I could have. I could go to some exotic island at night, and still be at work the next day!

    I think I saw Bigfoot one night. Does that count as weird?

    My parently live near Mt. Rainier in Washington State. I was about 18 - 20 years old, driving home from Tacoma with my best friend, and was about 15 minutes away from the city proper. It was dusk. All of a sudden I saw a HUGE biped creature walking fairly quickly from the road into the surrounding woods. This thing was easily 8 feet tall, but was much too human-looking to have been a bear or another kind of animal.

    I absolutely froze, I was so scared. I didn't want to mention it in case my friend hadn't seen it and thought I was nuts. We drove in silence for about 5 minutes. Then, in an uncharacteristically tiny voice, my friend hesitantly asked, "Did you see that?" In an equally tiny voice, I responded,
    "Yes." "What WAS that?" "I don't know." And then neither of us said another word for about 20 minutes. After we finally started talking about it, we compared details and both of us agreed on the basic description of what we had seen. Still don't know to this day what it as, but if I had to guess....

    This happened in the mid-1980's. An airforce pilot had to abandon his plane near Indianapolis Intnl Airport and it crashed into the lobby of the Ramada Inn killing, I think, 10 or 11 people. I worked as an MA in a clinic 1/2 block away. When we rushed to the scene (just as bystanders -- we couldn't get close because of the heat) it was the most horrible thing I have ever seen.

    What I think about most was the next day in the paper, they had a small story on the front page about a family who stated they had received a call from their son (a bus boy at the hotel) minutes after the crash stating that he was fine and for them not to worry. Later that day, they were notified their son was one of the few killed immediately when the plane hit the lobby. I think, how horrible for the family, but then again, he let them know he was okay. What do you think?

    My mother, who was a nurse and was raising six kids, went into a depression over the fact that my father left her for someone else, and she committed suicide 20 years ago this past Feb. 27th. She jumped off a bridge. 5 years ago this past Feb. 27th, my uncle/ my mom's only brother had a heart attack and died. When they were in their teens their mom died on a Feb. 27th. Me and my cousin call it D-day. "How did your D-day go?"

    So I was in my second year of nsg school ( I went to a large state university, something like ten thousand undergrads ), and I'm sitting there waiting on the first day of Spring semester for my 8 am lecture to start (pathophysiology, I was taking it w/ the group who were a semester ahead of me), and in walks this girl who I fell for then and there. Short, petite, kind of shy looking. I just had to get to know her, no ifs ands or buts. She sat right behind me that day and for the remainder of the semester, so it was easy for a shy guy like myself to get to know her.
    The semester is going along and I'm not making much progress (I was a little screwed up w/ drinking and drugs @ this point in my life). Then a couple weeks til Easter she starts flirting w/ me one day, I had an extra ticket to the Red Sox for Easter day so I asked if she wanted to go (w/ myself, my cousin and his gf) and she said yes. I was thrilled!
    Now before I go any further I'm going to tell you that I would later find out that this young lady is the neice of the woman my dad left my mom for. You following?
    So she's going to the game w/ me, I'm thrilled, we went out to dinner the week before the game, I was thrilled.

    Now we had been talking and I was aware of a situation she was having w/ her Ivy League, track star boyfriend. He had cheated on her, and she was conflicted over what to do about it.
    So I pick her up, gave her a little Easter basket, pick up the others, head up to Fenway, beautiful spring day. All day long she seems like she's got something on her mind, but I just keep trying to charm her. We had an exam the next day so we were doing a little studying, I was drinking a few too many watered down beers. Game ends, we head back home, I drop the others off, and then she tells me that her boyfriend (she went back and forth bet. calling him her ex and her bf) had sliced his wrists two nights earlier b/c she was going to this game w/ me. He was fine. An ambulance came for him but he only did superficial damage. He took the semester off and they got back together, and last I knew are still together.

    To make a long story short I fell for the neice of the woman who my dad left my mom for, and thus who was indirectly responsible for my moms suicide, and this young lady's boyfriend makes an attempt on his life, indirectly b/c of me. Is your head spinning b/c mine sure was?

    It wasn't until Mother's day when I was @ a cook-out @ mt aunt's that I found out that this girl was -----'s neice. My aunt had just moved into the neighborhood where this girl lived and I was telling her about going to the game and she recognized the last name of the girl(different from her aunt's so I didn't know). And we were both floored. It's totally a cosmic kind of thing. Kind of Shakespearean.

    I don't get to tell this story to hardly anyone- family and only a couple of close friends, so this feels great to post this kind of anonimously.

    Actually, my life is pretty mundane, except for this horrible, horrible nightmare I had about 4 months ago.

    I don't remember what it was about...but before I went to bed my husband and I decided to play with the Ouija board. It moved, naturally, and I didn't move it and I totally trust my husband not too. Well we were done with it and I was getting up to go to bed and my husband was explaining how we have to put the Ouija away in it's box and not leave it out or else the spirit is still "active." So we put it away.

    Next thing I know, after falling asleep, was being somewhere in between awake and asleep, and feeling PETRIFIED like I've never had before. Apparently I was hyperventilating so my husband tried to wake me - and had his hands on my chest - and I sat up and his hands inadventertly traveled to my throat and then I started SCREAMING over and over - I guess I woke the neighborhood as dogs were barking and lights being turned on. I sort of remember screaming - and then I woke up. My husband was comforting me and I couldn't even tell you what I was dreaming - but the first thing I thought of was that I was happy the the Ouiga was boxed up. I mean that was like, THE FIRST THING I thought of. I was so scared, could not fall back asleep, and don't recall EVER being so afraid in my entire life. It was very, very strange.

    Wow, Susy--I've always been afraid to play with a Ouija board because of some other stuff that's happened to me, but your story reminded me of something else I did in college.

    Everybody's probably heard the story that there is "backmasking" (i.e., subliminal satanic messages) when you play Led Zeppelin's "Stairway to Heaven" backward. Well, a bunch of us were sitting around my dorm room one night talking about it and we decided to see. 2 of us manipulated the record and we really did hear a lot of creepy stuff. I specifically remember hearing the phrases "Prince of Darkness" and "My Sweet Satan" spoken but there was a lot of other stuff too. I was in a room with 5 or 6 people with all the lights on and I can't remember ever being that scared before. It really freaked me out. A couple of years later, I was telling my best friend and she wanted to try. I was reluctant, but eventually agreed. We played the record in her parents house in the middle of the day and I was again overcome with this feeling of dread and fear. After that, I swore I would NEVER do that again. And I haven't.

    Makes me happy we play CD's now instead of vinyl--you can't play those backwards!

    I would recommend for you to get rid of your O.boards. A friend of mine and her boyfriend and another couple actually invited some not so great spirits into their home after playing on one and their lives were never quite the same. This entity came into their home and started to play havoc and my friend finally left the home after a period of time. It tried to kill her a couple of times and that is enough talk for me never to play around with one.....

    You may think this is strange of me, but since I don't get to tell the above story hardly ever, I'm kind of interested in hearing what people think about it? What do you think it could mean? It's changed my life and how I approach relationships emmensely. Just hoping for some feedback.

    I absolutely believe in ghosts, spirits, whatever you want to call them. A dear friend of mine found a letter hidden in a staircase in a house she bought and was remodeling. This letter was stained by what appeared to be blood and was written before I was even born. It was about a murder, never solved in our area. We decided to play detective, as neither of us were working at the time, and things started happening that most of you wouldn't believe. The further into research we got, we found that my friend was an exact double for the murdered mans bride of only 6 months. A friend of hers on the police force told her to burn that letter because it could cause her problems she never dreamed of. Prior to this warning we KNOW we received warnings from the man that was murdered, it was too unbelievable not to believe. The things that happened clearly indicated that we were to back off. I believe to this day, he loved her because she looked like his young bride. We burned the letter and stopped asking questions and everything returned to normal. I really feel his presence still is with her because if we're on the phone and started talking about the murder, odd things happen. We don't talk about it now, better off not to take chances. I NEVER believed in such things until I encountered this situation, now I don't know what to believe.

    Oh my gosh, I am absolutely terrified of Bigfoot! I also believe I saw one one night walking through an orchid across the street from a house I was at!!!!! To this day, whenever there is a Bigfoot thing on TV I still get the creeps. The famous walking footage from the 70's has been proven to be something other than a human and I trully believe they are out there!!!!
