    Haha, that is a kinda creepy story.

    Unexplained things that have happened in our house:

    - My father's tape measure, the heavy metal ones you use to measure the house for carpentry and such, stayed on the the desk, unraveled entirely to the opposite wall where the tongue hit about 2-3 feet from my sister's head, then the whole thing fell from the desk top while trying to coil itself back up. About gave my father a heart attack.

    - My youngest sister frequently insisted she kept talking to someone. It disturbed my mother dearly after a while, because my sister became frightened of the person she was talking to, and I ended up cleansing the room to alleviate her fears and online, of all things, we were told salt around the bed is a superstition to relieve younger kids from nightly spirit visits. We put salt around my sister's bed for about 3 months straight before my sister stopped seeing whatever she saw. I'm not at all sure the salt helped, but it definitely made her and my mother feel safer.. so I suppose in that way it does work.

    - My father, when he was a little boy, thought he saw his mother in the hallway when he was sick, and when he called to her, she seemed to want to help him but couldn't speak. She sank into the floor when his mother heard him calling for her and walked into the hallway to see.

    My partial schizophrenic (term used loosely, of course) experience:

    I was sleeping in a hotel room on vacation with several people and the room was incredibly dark, it was 1:30 AM or something like that.

    I was trying to go to sleep, but I couldn't, I was sort of in a depressive state thinking about some very dark topics (isn't it amazing to be depressed on vacation?) and possibly painful truths when all of a sudden I realize things that had seemed normal in the dark hotel room had seemed to become different things.

    For example, as I was laying facing the door to the hotel room, something to the side of it looked precisely like a man hanging from the ceiling, and it was fascinatingly motionless, it was the perfect shape, with a noose like shadow and everything (keep in mind it is extremely dark in this room). The chair that I remembered was situated closer to the door had suddenly become an indescribable blob, one that was scurrying, and every time I closed my eyes I swear it was approaching me more closely and beginning to loom over me sort of. Of course, realizing that I was probably hallucinating, I knew it wasn't real, but it still felt alien and strange. I could also hear a pulsating sound coming from outside, which I'm still not sure what was from, that was undulating with intensity.

    After I finally fell asleep with the abysmally dark chair blob thing looming over me, I awoke to realize that the chair had actually been moved back to its original spot by one of the people in the room with me and that the blob was not the chair, but empty space. Same with the hanging man before, which I would have sworn was a lamp or something.

    Didn't happen again for the rest of the nights I stayed there.

    Can't wait to hear some fascinating stories by others.
    Had experiences like that nightly as a child for a long time.

    Mine are pretty boring.

    I was driving home one night after finishing the late shift, so it was about midnight, and it was pouring rain, when i saw a hitchhiker walking along the side of the highway.

    I remember clearly seeing a tall male figure with a hoody and smallish backpack. When i think back, it was odd, because he didn't look wet at all, and the rain was heavy enough that i had my wipers on the highest level.

    Against the whole "don't pick up strangers thing" i decided i would pull over and give them a lift to the closest town, because, well, fucking torrential rain at midnight.

    When i looked back in my rear view mirror to see the guy, there was no one there. It was a well lit area, with many lights as we had been passing a turn off. There was no where the person could have gone in the space of time it took for me to look back as there was no cover anywhere near. He simply wasn't there anymore.

    I got a horrible cold shiver (it was summer and about 90F still, even with the rain) and felt really panicky, and pretty much drove off as fast as i could.

    I'm still not 100% sure what happened, whether i imagined the person or not. but it kind of freaked me out.




    *Also, i'm really weird about houses. I get feelings in them. for example, the house i live in currently is over 100 years old, but i feel perfectly comfortable in it. Nothing makes me panicky and i can walk around in it at night without turning on every light available. Not every place is like that though, and on entering a place i will either feel a warm comfortable feeling or this kind of creeping cold gross feeling, and it has nothing to do with the occupants.


    Example:

    When i was 18 my mum and step dad built a brand new home on an estate in the country, the home was build over a filled in dam, for all intents and purposes should have had no bad mojo.

    i HATED that house, nothing would grow in the back yard, and it wasn't as if my parents didn't know how to grow things, they had been on a vineyard and organic orchard for the last 15 years, the last house we were in had the most amazing garden because mum is a great gardener. Yet, nothing, and i mean, NOTHING would grow in that godforsaken back yard, even with new soil and additives and all the knowhow of farming nothing. Not even weeds. It was barren.

    Also, for the first time in her long, long, life our dog (who was about 11 at the time and a Rottweiler - so old for a Rotty) started to escape and run away from home. She had NEVER done this before. She would also cry/whimper at the entrance to the dining room and refused to go in there.

    But the worst part for me, was my mum's sewing room. Even during the day it was cold in there, and it just felt wrong. Like something was waiting in there, it was a crawling sensation and i'd feel it even in the middle of the day. My bedroom door was diagonally opposite it, and normally i need to sleep with my door open, but in this house, i couldn't even stand to have it open a little. In the night there would be shuffling noises like footsteps when someone doesn't pick up their feet properly, and it wasn't the dog as her nails clicked on the tiled floor.

    Anyway, i fucking hated that place. Nothing has EVER felt as bad to me as that house. I thought i was the only one who was affected by it, but i was talking with my brothers a month or so ago about how much that place freaked me out and they said that my step dad had seen a partial face staring in at him through the dining room window one night, but that there was no one around when he looked.

    So yeah. fuck that fucking house.

    Terrible things happen to good people every day.
    Consequentially, I am not one of the good people.
    I am one of the terrible things.

    One time during a birthday party we had a seance and asked for a sign. I was sitting on the couch with some other girls, watching everyone sitting in a circle.

    Suddenly, the couch moved across the floor of its own accord--and this wasn't my imagination, because everyone screamed and jumped off.

    I can't say for sure that the birthday girl's mom wasn't playing a joke on us, but the couch was against the wall, and the girl herself swore up and down that her mom can't so much as budge the furniture by herself. Regardless of what you believe, it was scary enough that we stopped playing and one of the guests got so upset she threw up.


    Another time, and this is unconfirmed ghostageness, but my mother and I were driving in the hills and saw a low-flying World War II jet. I said, "That plane's awfully low", and then I turned to follow it, thinking it might be descending into a field somewhere. It disappeared into a low-lying cloud...and never re-appeared. Then we realized it had been flying silently. A ghost? The Wright Museum is about 50 miles away from that location, and they have reported haunted stacks and irregular phenomena with the aircraft. That's the only thing I can think--why the hell was there a silent jet from the 1940s flying over the hills? (It had 4 engines, it was not a crop duster).

    My stepfather's family had this experience once--the father took the boys on a camping trip one weekend, and the girls all stayed at home. They were dismayed to see one of the sons, Eric, run through the hall screaming that evening. When they went into the hall to see what had happened, there was no one there. Everyone swears--to this day--Eric was at the camp with them the whole time (nothing bad happened to him or anything). Just weirdness.

    Apparently, this phenomenon is not uncommon amongst people of Nordic descent (which the family is, actually).

    Ghost stories are woven into Christianity from the very beginning with the worship of the Trinity consisting of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost.
