Anybody live(d) around paranormal activity?

Anonymous 3223

Yeah my neighbor's house was haunted.

Never had anything happen where I live, though.

I don't really believe in this stuff and I feel like a total retard even typing this out but there's this… thing in my house that likes to play little pranks sometimes. Just little things like opening and closing doors, randomly turning kitchen appliances on and off, knocking shit over, etc. I'm not sure if he's a spirit or a demon or what but I know I'm not going crazy considering both my parents and sister have reported getting fucked with as well or maybe we're all going insane. Again I don't really believe in supernatural stuff and I'm sure there's logical explanations for all of these occurrences but even if it is real I don't really mind. He doesn't seem to be a malicious entity or anything, everything he does is pretty harmless. We even have a little name for him, we call him 'Riggy'. Don't know where the name came from or why we call him that but it's cute I think. It's sort of become an inside joke in our house where whenever some minor inconvenience happens we just say 'oh, that must've been Riggy getting up to no good again.' Kek this is so stupid I apologise.

Reading this thread and the other thread from another board just made me realize how much fucking losers you all are lmao. Literally, get over yourselves. Nobody feels sorry for all the fucked up stuff you did. Even though most people who posted stuff they've done feel no empathy you'll always be fucked up and it'll make your lives worse. I doubt any of the people who did horrible things have stable lives, relationships and are happy. How retarded do you have to be to not recognize you're creating your own hell.

Like >>3230 says I think one of the things you realise as you get older is like, IQ 135 or IQ 140 or whatever, it's above average top 2% or 1% or something but as an advantage that rapidly deteriorates once you get into competitive streams. If you're working as a scientist or analyst or something you aren't competing with the 98% who are less intelligent than you, because they never made it here or even wanted to come in this direction in the first place. You're mostly with peers, and the truly gifted (the top 0.001% or something) are the ones who stand out.

You ARE special in primary school, in that out of a cohort of 30 or 50 kids you might be the smartest. But our whole system is built to stream that so in high school maybe you're one of the 10 smartest, and then in uni because you probably pick a smart person's course you're top 50%, and if you do well and go into the field you're just average.

I was also 'gifted' and my main lingering complaints about that are 1) I was never obligated to work hard 2) I was praised far too much for idle work or ideas without effort. These traits have created a lot of problems for me now, in adult life, when I do have to work hard and am not so easily praised. But that's also just my own laziness and inability to change. Even if I had been socialized perfectly I wouldn't have been anything special lol, I just would have been a somewhat more successful version of myself.

near death experiences Anonymous 3049[Reply]

have you had one? a year ago i drank too much water and went into a coma. it got me to actually value life and i felt like a new person after getting out of the hospital. i didnt even aknowledge how much it affected me at the time - i mean i didnt even aknowledge how close i was to dying - so the effect was mostly subconscious. i now understand how big a role fear plays in human behavior. having lived most of my life comfortably i have been too used to taking everything for granted.

I once fainted and while I didn't have a full-on NDE, I did briefly feel like I was somewhere more real than reality and sort of "heavenly" for lack of a better description, and both of those are symptoms of an NDE, or so I've heard.

Anonymous 3185

I had a couple. I had a bad infection from a cat scratch on my neck as a kid that had me in the hospital for a while, and I got into a roll-over accident going 105mph. The air time I got felt like an eternity and it still plays in my head when I'm doing really bad

I tried to kill myself a little over a year ago by cutting my wrists. Definitely the closest I've come to dying. Very surreal experience.

Not an NDE, but once at PE lesson just when I was about to be hit by the ball, time has literally slowed down for me and I deflected the ball. It was maybe 2 secs at most but for me it was like 5 seconds. Now I know it was an adrenaline burst or something like that.

I had a girl try to drown me when I was 8. She was up on a floaty and I was in the water. She would pull me up by my hair, laugh at me, and then push me back into the water and hold me there. I would thrash around and try very hard to get back to the surface and my brain was just on survival mode. I had no emotions or fear, as I was solely focused on breathing as much as possible when I was let up and attempting to break away. The intervals between her pulling me up and holding me down started getting longer and longer, and it felt like it was going on forever and I couldn't escape. Finally my mom came and ripped her off of me and chewed her the fuck out. It was so strange because minutes before the girl started drowning me, we were just playing games like tag and pretending to be mermaids. I don't know if she was retarded or a psychopath, but my mom always says that the girl had dead, empty eyes and was just staring at her unblinking as she was going off on her.

I had an ectopic pregnancy two years ago. I got pregnant two months after I had my son and I was freaking out. I found out while at the hospital for gallstones and pancreatitis. I immediately knew something was abnormal, because I had been spotting continuously, and I never did that with my son (I had ignored the spotting because I thought it was a weird period, since I had had a baby so recently). After I had gotten the gallstone removed from my bile duct, they sent an OBGYN to my room to talk to me. I mentioned the bleeding, and he said it was "implantation spotting". I asked him if he was sure, since it had been going on for a couple of weeks and was more like streaking than spotting, and he said it was fine (which is bullshit, and implantation spotting takes place way earlier than 8 weeks, which was where I was). Fast forward a few days later, I'm in the shower and have a dull, achy pain in my right pelvic region. It was uncomfortable, but not unbearable, but I knew that all the spotting plus one sided pain could mean an ectopic pregnancy. I rush to a different OBGYN, who does an ultrasound and sees no baby in my uterus, but instead in my fallopian tube. I am immediately rushed into surgery, and when I wake up the doctor is in my room, telling me I almost died as I had an insane amount of blood filling my pelvis. I at first was just relieved to be alive, but as time went on, I became very scared of being pregnant again. I was later told by the OBGYN that the pancreatitis had caused foPost too long.

I worked at a big tech company, and even though no one is probably actively watching what you do, there's enough tracking being done that your digital footprint is pretty extensive. At my company, there was a lot of emphasis on scrubbing user data, anonymizing it, and what not, but even then, things slip through, and we're supposedly one of the better companies in this regard.

Telemetry is really the only way a large software company is gonna be able to tell how it's products are working, and then there's the whole "we wanna sell/analyze your data" thing.

Basically, yeah, but it doesn't mean you're special :'(

When are homicidal thoughts "average", and when are they not?

I imagine most people have imagined beating someone up or shooting someone they really hated but would never go through with it or even truly want to; so what sets potential killers homicidal thoughts apart?

it's kinda like how most people have that sorta urge to jump when they're on the edge of a cliff, but most don't actually want to go through with it since they don't really want to die, and that sets them apart from suicidal people.

Most killers have average homicidal thoughts. It has nothing to do with how good of a person you are and more to do with risk averseness.

Does it count as on purpose if I started doing it for comfort during a very dangerous time of my life, but I didn't know what it was? Or is it still involuntary?

Idk I was put on Chantix and it made me hallucinate and go into psychosis within a month of taking it. I thought all the nightmares I was having at night were real. Like aliens, the end of the world, etc. It got so bad I started seeing strange light waves during the day and my inner voice split from my understanding of my inner voice and I thought it was God/angels.
It was horrifying. Especially when I didn’t sign up for that trip or even expecting it.
Like the exorcist scary.
Strange thing is though, I never experienced anything like that again when I got better. They just sedated me basically and waited it out.
Chantix is scary.

Anonymous 2377

Because the act of thinking is a mild form of hallucination. (Hearing a voice in your head that no one else can?) Dreaming is another example. "Using your imagination" is another.

Anyone can hallucinate, and under the right conditions, can become dlelusional.

Nothing like you're describing, the most I've experienced sober is hearing my name called out when no one's there, and intense math models I've tried to work through visually.

I ingested LSD before, while tripping I'd sometimes see images if I stared at a wall with a light pattern on it. After I tripped though I've had weird flashbacks, one happened last week where I was walking and I glanced down at my foot and saw ants crawling all over it, but when I quickly looked back there was nothing on my foot, it was pretty weird.
