    Earlier today I was watching this show and they were talking about bizarre and unsolved mysteries. One of them really got me. There are certian people in the world who constantly hear a low humming sound almost like the sound of a generator. And they don't know why or where it comes from. One guy in Michigan went looking for days to see if he could find the source and he couldn't. He tried living under ground and he could still hear it. And there are only about 1,000 some people in the world this happens to. I don't know why but I thought it was cool.

    Anyway have you guys ever had any bizarre things happen to you that you couldn't explain?

    I've never really been a superstitious person, but about 5 years ago when I was in college, I had this strange, continuing incident regarding rotten apples. I kept finding rotten apples in various areas on and off campus. I was confused mostly because I found them in areas nowhere near any dining facilities. Granted, I knew some people toss food/trash anywhere, but those apples turned up in the most random of places. Always rotten, too!

    After seeing the 10th apple in a matter of 4 days, I was beginning to wonder if someone or some force was trying to tell me something, haha! Those apples were just starting to get to me! Sadly, I never figured it out. The apple madness ended the following week.

    That's strange maybe someone was taking the "Apple a day keeps the doctor away" too far..

    There is this house in the woods near my house that kids use to have beer parties in but then there was a fire and some people died so they stopped having parties there. Well once in high school a few friends and I were out out for a walk near the house and we started hearing people talking and laughing. We followed the noises and it was coming from the house but nobody was inisde. We went pver to it and looked through the windows and there was nobody inside. The noises started getting louder so we freaked and booked it.

    Isn't that just tinnitus (aka ringing in the ears, a misnomer because it really isn't a ringing), which you can get from head injuries, among other causes? I have it, one of my VA-compensated service-connected disabilities.

    Plus I can get it as part of pre-seizure hallucinations. For a few years it took the form of video game sounds. I could look all around and not find the game, it seemed like it was always in the next room. But when I'd go in that room, the sound was now coming from another room. All because it's self-generated in my brain, I'm not really "hearing" any actual sound at all. Couldn't that be what's happening to these other guys?

    I dont know.
    But sometimes when a thing comes to me , I had the feeling that it used to happen to me before. Im pretty sure about that but I couldnt explain.

    another example ,sometimes I have the feeling that someone is breathing and watching me from behind when Im alone.
    Im strongly sure that I felt that breath ! But there was no one.
    when I turn around , that feeling disappear, and it continues breathing when I turn back.
    Im not scared but Im so curious and that feeling it bothers me.

    It happened about 3-4 times since I was 14.

    MusicMan91 saidAnyway have you guys ever had any bizarre things happen to you that you couldn't explain?

    For about a year in the late 1990s I began to see the future in my dreams. No important content, no save-the-world messages, just mundane stuff in my life I'd dream a few days before it happened. Skeptics would chalk it up to coincidence, but try this one:

    The dream I'd had was so unusually vivid, and the memory so strong, that I felt compelled to e-mail it to several friends, to make a record of it. Though I didn't know why, the content wasn't really all that special. And I'd never e-mailed a dream before.

    Three days later I unexpectedly met one of those friends on a sidewalk in downtown Seattle. I liked hanging out with him, and I took him into a small indoor downtown mall that was right there, to window-shop while we talked, and get us off the sidewalk. He told me a new restaurant had just opened upstairs the day before, featuring grand opening deals. We agreed to try it.

    We were offered an outdoor table for 2, on a patio overlooking the street below. We ordered, when a very loud motorcycle drew my attention. I looked down, and suddenly gasped - this was my dream. I excitedly reviewed my e-mail with him.

    The dream began with my entering a large, old brick building downtown, which this real mall had been converted from. Inside were small eccentric shops, staffed by people with red hair & blue, their bodies heavily pierced & tattooed. We were near the Univ of Seattle, some of the students actually appearing that way, and working in these shops we looked into that day.

    In my dream the restaurant table had the unusual feature of being constructed of about 20 wooden slats with open spaces between them. So was our actual table, the slats oriented in the identical direction as the dream. We sat on high cocktail chairs, same as here. Our table was at the end of a row of 8 tables. Again, exactly the same.

    We were facing in the same positions, and to my left in the dream was the railing above the street & sidewalk below. To my right was a curved archway with double open doors, through which I could see people drinking at the bar inside, and here was that identical scene in real life, the doors the same size & style, the bar in the same position. Even the contrast between the bright daylight outside versus the dimmer lighting inside, that made the people inside hard to distinguish, was a carbon copy of the dream.

    And when the loud motorcycle had made its appearance in my dream, I awoke and the dream ended. So it was now that the motorcycle snapped me "awake" and into the realization of what had been happening. I'll mention, though, that in the dream my dining companion had indistinct facial features, but certainly a man, so I couldn't say that it was my friend now sitting with me.

    What strikes me is that our meeting was accidental, and especially to location. My dream and e-mail were before this restaurant opened, neither of us had any idea what it looked like inside. We were led to that table, we didn't choose it ourselves. And neither of us could have stage managed the loud motorcycle.

    Yet what did it all mean? Nothing, as far as I could tell. Nothing came of it afterwards, no aftermath. It was just a step-by-step, moment-by-moment, extremely detailed prediction of an ordinary activity of mine, 3 days in the future. And it still spooks me.

    It's not ringing but a humming and it is constant. Some are worse than others and it usually intensifies at night.

    That's exactly what I have, and it's tinnitus. A constant hum, that gets worse at night when other masking sounds have become still. For that reason I have a noise generator in my bedroom, that provides a background sound. Although most times I just fall asleep with the TV on. Plus the VA gives me hearing aids, not only because my hearing is faulty, but again, with the secondary goal of raising the ambient sound level to block out the tinnitus.

    When I was 13 years old I was letting my dog outside to go the bathroom late at night. We were at my lake house so I had to go outside and watch her. I heard a huge stomp as if someone jumped over my fence. I got scared so I called for my dog and went inside ASAP. I was looking outside from the window and I kid you not I saw someone run by. It didn't look like a person though. I am not a believer of ghosts but that was no person but at the same time looked like one. I also heard the stomp so to be honest I have no clue what it was.

    That's not tinnitus. That's southbeach tunnelling under your condo building.

    One evening I knew something really bad was going to happen to my dad. I remember sitting/standing on the stairs looking at him for a very long time, like it was the last time I was going to see him.Believe it or not, but the next day he died (with no immediate cause). That was absolutely the most creeping sensation i've ever had and I hope never have to experience that again. There's some bizarre things going on...

    Ooooooooh I got one. I was having dinner at home one night. Then (what looked like) one of the light bulbs in the light above flickered then popped (like it had exploded or something) and a piece of, what I thought at first was glass, fell. I didnt think about the glass but checked the bulbs to see which one I had to replace and to look for what might of happened.

    No broken bulbs no broken glass everything was fine icon_confused.gif

    So I looked at the piece that fell to the floor. It was a piece of ice (or what looked and felt like ice) icon_confused.gif

    Have no idea how ice got up there was created up there etc...

    So I put the "ice" in the freezer. Went to the PC to see if there was any kind of explanation for this. About 10 minutes later went back to the freezer to look at the "ice" again and it had melted, not a damn piece left of it. It was about the size (length wise) of an iphone and the girth of a finger.

    There is no way it could have melted that fast in the fucking freezer (if it was ice) in that amount of time.

    guyathome74 saidI once met someone and they placed their hand on my chest while I was sitting in the back seat of a car with them. Then they told me I had a demon in my chest and that if I accepted, they would help exorcise it. No lie. Totally freaked me out because they were serious.


    Well, did you go through with it?
    Honestly...I could probably use an exorcism.

    Sometimes I have these dreams and I'll be somewhere plain as day and something horrible will happen and then sometime later I will be at the exact place I had dreamed about and it doesn't occur right away it can be months after the fact. I get this eerie feeling as if I have been here before and then I remember my dream and wait for something horrible to happen but it doesn't. For example one time I dreamed about being at a football field watching my brother and then a bomb was dropped during the game. Well I ended up at that field and no bomb was dropped. Kind of creepy!
