if you mean paranormal as in the clinical definition of an unexplainable phenomenon, then yes. if you mean "ghosts" then i can't say for sure.

i was visiting my aunt in south dakota during a time when she was going through a new age spiritualist phase. we were doing some kind of seance thing where she and her friends were trying to contact a spirit guide. they were standing around a large oak dining table, with their hands on a small plastic bridge table that rested on top. as they asked questions, the small plastic table would rise on one edge or the other.

they asked me if i wanted to participate. i did, and as i asked questions silently in my mind, the table rose and fell according to the answers. oddly enough, it rose on the edge opposite from me, so physically i would have had to be the one pulling in order to move the table. only my hands were resting flat on top, barely skimming the surface, applying no pressure. finally i asked a tough question and the table rose along one edge, then rose again along another so that it was perched precariously on one itty bitty corner of one of the legs. before my eyes the table leg then began to flex and bow as though it were experiencing great pressure. i watched the leg twist, flex, and then as suddenly as it began the table came back to rest on all four legs and did not rise again.

later in the evening my aunt and her friends were standing around the table trying to get a different spirit named "alicia" to communicate. i was informed that this spirit had never successfully moved the table before. they kept encouraging "her," goading her into making an effort. suddenly the big oak dining table slid 6 inches to the right, making a heavy scratching sound against the hardwood floors. my aunt had to jump back to avoid collision. i was stunned. my aunt and her friends, however, just laughed and said, "not THAT table, alicia!"

The sunroom ghost. Brrrrrrr.

ghosts apparently don't live in my iteration of reality

(nor have I encountered any table-rapping spirits at any seance)

my friend Perrec, however, lived in a houseful of spirits for five years. he used to have conversations with them in the library.

the most I've experienced is a continuous unexplained feeling of unease in a particular room. no ectoplasmic ghosties, no unexplained cold spots, no poltergeist activity - all quite boring.

anyone got a ghost they could introduce me to?

Have you ever had a 'paranormal' experience ? yes
Or perhaps know someone who has? no

i shared a dream with a friend once.

I woke up one morning from a particularly vivid dream and recounted it to my girlfriend.

We then went down to have breakfast and one of my friends, who was in the dream, recounted exactly the same dream but told from his perspective.

It was one of those "drop your jaw" moments.

^ I did that too :eek:

Refer back to astrology question.

I think I got slapped by a ghost once. I was about to fall asleep alone in my room when I felt it. I shot up in bed and no one was there. It may have been a super-vivid dream, but I could still hear the echo of skin on skin and the sting of my cheek afterwards.

Are you referring to me? That's scary...

Marcus Bales 03-07-2008 02:07 PM

Now I'm really afraid of you.

YsaPur EsChomuw 03-07-2008 02:13 PM

Why? Come closer, I promise I won't hurt you...

Marcus Bales 03-07-2008 02:17 PM

Um, I gotta go to the grocery store now ...

craig johnston 03-07-2008 05:14 PM

there's nothing to fear but fear itself.

Marcus Bales 03-07-2008 05:24 PM

I'm back from the grocery store, munching now on Oreos, dipping them in cold milk. I'm not afraid any more.

Veruki 03-07-2008 05:30 PM

those oreos are going straight to your arse

Marcus Bales 03-07-2008 05:35 PM

What do you care? Now that you've given me the Horse's Ass Award, I'm drowning my sorrows in Keebler's Chocolate Lover's Chocolate Chip Cookies, too!

Veruki 03-07-2008 05:38 PM

I gave you that award to show my total respect and support for all the nonsense you contribute to this bored. I feel hurt by your lack of appreciation. Well I'm just going to take it back now and give it to someone who wants it. :( and... and.... I'm going to go watch porn with CJ....ha!

Yeah well I hope you remember that when the mummies come.

Marcus Bales 03-07-2008 05:46 PM

I'm afraid Veruki and Craig's Johnson are double entendring.

craig johnston 03-07-2008 05:48 PM

no fear of that! we are upright citizens!


Marcus Bales 03-07-2008 05:49 PM

I know Craig's Johnson is upright, but what about Veruki the Indian-giver?

Veruki 03-07-2008 05:52 PM

It's not my fault you didn't want the award, and don't blame me for my great posture...

Marcus Bales 03-07-2008 05:53 PM

I'm afraid that I don't like being given awards, however well-deserved.

craig johnston 03-07-2008 05:56 PM

the sw ohio dog-eared doggerel award goes to....


*half-hearted applause*

Marcus Bales 03-07-2008 05:58 PM

The Official Little Condom Award goes to: Craig's Johnson!
