    I don't take drugs or under any medications of some sort for that matter. I also don't drink but I've had a few "sleep terrors" episodes before, and a couple of them were pretty intense! One of them was about someone or something choking me with both hands and it felt like it was sitting on my chest. I was fighting it with all my might and I could even hear myself grunting to muster up all my strength to fight it but to no avail. Then, I prayed fervently and that's when it let go of me and then I heard a loud thump on my rooftop. This happened around 2 AM. Another "sleep terror" incident I had was about an old hag clutching my left shoulder with her bony claw like hand and I can feel it's face and it's breath right against my left cheek. I remember not being able to move or yell for help. It was a scary feeling of helplessness. It was so intense that even after I woke up the next day, there was a residual sensation of it's hand on my left shoulder. I've done some research on this and the scientific explanation for it is sleep paralysis where your brain wakes up before the rest of your body wakes up. But there is always this feeling of an evil presence associated with it. Since then, I am not able to sleep unless I exhaust my self to sleep. I normally sleep around two or three in the morning due to these unusual experiences.

    I've always been interested in the paranormal, everything from ghosts and demonic possession to UFO's and ESP. Then I found a college that offers paranormal courses and was certified through them and have done a few "investigations" here in Hawaii. There are a lot of ghost tours and just plain weird stuff here... it's great, especially with all the local legends and superstitions. If you're ever in Hawaii forget the beach go to Morgan's Corner, the Pali Look Out or Manoa Valley.

    When the ship I was stationed on pulled into Hawaii, I was out in town in Waikiki I think... and I was surprised to see a flyer taped on a store window about a satanic worship ritual happening that weekend. I was amazed at how open this type of practice seems to be over there! Is this common in Hawaii?

    It's quite a little melting pot that's really open to anything. And all the Asian/Pacific cultures that take root here bring in their customs and legends making it very interesting.

    Sometimes I see persons in my room. Shadows, and when I start staring at them they fade. 2 years ago I got a new room and they are not here anymore...

    I've actualy been asked before by people trying to "figure my dreams out" if I was a drug user. I told them I just make this stuff up to get attention.

    No kidding? I love TAPS! I watch it every chance I get.

    Paranormal stuff has always really freaked me out, but regardless I find it very interesting. I'm not really sure if this is classed as paranormal, but here locally, there are a lot of weird stories about "things that go bump in the night". One that really sticks out in my mind is from the mid 1800s of the Santer, a kind of skinny, ape-like creature with a face similar to a bat and had a specific taste for dogs and sometimes children. They said it would roam all across North Carolina, from Cherokee to the Piedmont, and up into Virginia seasonally. Finally, a group of men got a hunting party together and tracked it to Wilkesboro, and supposedly a man from Asheville delivered what they believe to be a killing shot, although the body was never recovered. The weird thing is, I was on the topic of weird happenings with a guy I used to work with and he told me of a time when his Dad had gone deer hunting and made a kill, and when he went to recover the animal, there was something crouched over it that matched the description of the Santer. He raised his gun and shot, trying to scare it off and it raised up, looked at him, then bounded off into the woods. My friend's Dad left the deer there, stunned, and ran out of the woods.

    I actually live in Wilkesboro (and was born in Asheville, lol), and though I can't clarify any truth in this, according to the Weird U.S. guys from the History Channel, you can read sighting reports in the local newspaper archives. Weird stuff!

    Murphoid- that sounds a lot like a chupacabra. I found this originally under the title of chupacabra on YouTube but it's subtitles contained profanity but I found it under a different title with no subtitles. To this day no matter how often I watch it I still get chicken-skin... enjoy.

    Im a huge Ghost Hunters fan. They are one of my friends on myspace, so I get continous updates. Very Cool I must say. I also have gotten my husband, my dad and mom addicted as well. I moved to Idaho on the edge of WA border and Im looking for ghost hunters as well. I have had my share of expericences also. When I lived in Iowa I was alone in the house and I had this distinct aroma of my grandfathers cologne that was very pronounced. I had no doubt that it was his cologne. The whole thing is that my grandfather had passed away about 5 yrs before, he had never been to this house. Very creepy,but felt like he was there for me. I have had other strange things happen since then but those are usually at night kinda like dreams but very real. This instance with my grandfather was in the daytime while I was watching TV and laying on the couch. If there is anyone near Spokane, WA or closer to Idaho let me know. I am a little scared of the dark, but my curosity to the paranormal might out way that.

    My wife and I have at more that one experience with spirits. Most of them good(only 2 really nasty ones that she had to deal with) The latest events happed about a week ago ( just a few days after my Mother-in-law, Linda, passed away) .. we kept finding what looked like peanut shells around the house and these also showed up at her other 3 daughters houses. The thing is Linda loved to eat peanuts and had a habit of dropping some of the shells every time.

    I used to go ghost hunting all the time with friends in Waupun and Fond Du Lac

    There used to be a cemetery out on the highway with a monument of a lady whose legs were sometimes crossed and uncrossed. I remember we were all afraid to be alone in the dark in the cemetery after all the stories. We went online and looked up haunted places in the area and found tons.


    Also have a thing for ouiji boards, especially haunted ones

    I'll post more when I have time

    This happened several years ago at an old farm house in Fond Du Lac county.

    Our friend had just moved and we were all staying at her house the week her family moved in. It was me, her, and i think 3 or 4 other friends. Well anyways, we were all outside the first day relaxing after taking everything off the U-Haul and this pickup truck shows up.

    It's the neighbor guy (who still lives 1 or 2 miles down the street) and he starts talking to her dad, and this goes on for a couple minutes before her dad bursts out laughing and just walks away.

    Then he comes over to us with a real serious face and says to all of us, "things happen in this house". and just walks off.

    And we're all thinking he was drunk, high, or whatever because he just sounded crazy when he said it.

    I mean I believe in the stuff, but I just expected him to come over and you know, introduce himself, and say something more like "This house has a history and some people think it's haunted. People have seen and heard some strange things. Just thought you'd like to know"

    So we laughed about it for a little while and then her dad came out and gave us money to all go out to dinner, for helping them move in.

    We grabbed a movie on the way back from dinner and almost hit a deer on the way back, which shook up the girls we were with.

    This is when the weird stuff started happening.....

    When we parked my friend Julie forgot her purse in the car, and went back to get it (and we were all just several yards away.
    The door was unlocked and the moment she reached to open the handle the doors locked, she though it was our friend Jamie just being a jerk, but Jamie denied doing anything. Then he unlocked it himself and Julie tried again and it locked right away! This continued for a few more times before Julie was like "stop it!" and ran and grabbed Jamie's keys from him.
    THIS is really weird. She puts the key in the passenger side door hole to unlock it and the moment she does the key spits out and the door just unlatches itself and opens.... she described it as "felt like someone pulled my hand out with the key in it"

    She grabbed her purse and we all went in sort of spooked. She said she didn't think it was Jamie after that.
    It didn't help that the movie we rented was the Ninth Gate, which is a creepy movie in itself.

    Well we watched it trouble free for most of the movie before we had trouble with the TV.
    It kept switching to the History channel....yes, the history channel which at the time had a documentary paranormal stuff.....which freaked us out. We looked to see if anyone was sitting on the remote forcing it to stay on the channel but we found all 3 remotes and nothing was doign anything. After a little bit we were able to stay on the channel where we could watch the DVD.

    Nothing happened until later in the night after this.

    I had a really weird dream of clocks and running through sand hour glasses... and eventually I ran into a room that was the room I was sleeping in and the door was closed after I ran in. I turned around and waited for something, then it opened and there was a girl with the head of bird.... that motioned me for her to follow, i did and she opened doors leading to the kitchen....then she starts going through the fridge and was making me a sandwich....i didn't eat it and then she grabbed my arm and i woke up.

    I was freezing when i woke up, even though i had sweats and a sweatshirt on. I turned on the light and my door was open.
    For some reason i felt the need to check the doors to the kitchen. Everything was open, including the fridge....and there was a sandwich sitting on the counter.....

    It freaked me out so much.

    I guess some of my friends had similar dreams, but I dont remember them in detail.

    One was about a tractor in the field of the house, one was about hearing a girl singing after waking up from a dream with a little girl, another was about being led to a well outside by a man with no face and almost falling in the well, although the no faced man held on to my friend so they wouldn't fall.

    It was freaky, I only stayed one more night, and nothing really happened. A few of us just stayed at another house for the week, we were all freaked.

    Apparently my friend still has stories about the house here and there but she's in school and isn't always there...

    I'm not sure I believe in actual ghosts, but I do believe that people can leave a mark on the earth so to speak.

    There was a place in Tallahassee that was a Tuberculosis hospital that was then changed into a mental hospital for children in the 60s until it was closed by the health department due to "not staying up to fire code" and possible abuse charges.


    After it closed it became a place for college frat guys to have to go spend the night for initiation and started to get kinda beat up and stuff stolen out of it, etc. But it was always a place kids broke into at night for scares and such. We went several times and took a lot of pictures. It really had an "aura of sadness" to the place . You could kinda feel the death and sadness just being in there.

    As for weirdness, nothing ever happened while we were there.... but we did scare the **** out of many a college student with chains and various moans we would do in stair wells , following around other people who would come in LOL.

    I've also felt the same sadness and loss feelings when visiting many civil war battlefields and older cemetaries.

    Ok I wanted to go check this out before I posted in this thread. In San Antonio we have a famous ghost story about a train track crossing on the south side. The story I've always heard around here is that there was a school bus full of children crossing the tracks. It became stuck on the tracks. And a train came at the same time and hit the bus killing some kids and the driver. There were no crossing arms on the crossing and there still isn't any today.
    So the legend is that if you go to the tracks and place and park your car in neutral 30-40 yards back from the tracks, the ghost children will push you past the tracks out of harms way.

    So I go do some tests. Many say " Oh its because your rolling down hill." No! its not true. You actually roll up hill! I know! its weird! I even took a leveler out with me and a basket ball. It is up hill.

    I placed my car 40 yards back and set it in neutral. Your car just sits there for 30 sec or so, and then the car slowly starts to roll up at less than 5 mph. As its rolling you can hear gravel on the ground as if people are walking on them. As you get closer to the tracks you start to feel strong pressure in your chest and it becomes harder to breath. You car rolls over the tracks and you just need to turn the wheel to avoid going off road, and the pressure is released.
    I also did the baby powered test. I cleaned the back of my car with cleaner and a towel while wearing gloves. Then put baby powder over the back and back sides. After the event you can actually see little hand and finger prints. I think I may go back soon and get some video and audio but I don't have much equip yet. But just wanted you all to know about this one. Theres a site that says some thing about it too.

    Is that the Waverly Hills Sanitarium you're talking about?
    I want to go there! Didn't TAPS do a live all night long ghost hunt there last Halloween? I didn't have cable at the time, so I missed it.

    If you've got pictures, please send them to me! I know you said you didn't experience anything, I'd just like to see pics.

    Well here is a very recent story, it happened a few nights ago.

    So I went over to a friends house to spend the night. When I got there, there were 2 of my other friends there. So we go out and eat some mexican food and go back. We all then decide to go to jack in the box.. and keep in mind this was about 2 hours after we ate all that delicious mexican food. We decided to go to our old middle school, where it is supposedly haunted, and let me tell you, there couldnt have been a single person there, like thiefs, or homeless people, because anyone would have already crapped their pants there.

    So anyways, it's 2 AM and we are all out walking towards the school, the first thing we see is a dark, dark, dark, school. That initially freaks us out, but we keep walking on the street. Then at the entrance my friends stop and start freaking out. Honestly I wasnt all too scared. I was willing to go into the place alone if I had to.... That is until just 3 of us stepped into the entrance when things felt really bad. I was more aware, than ever before. Just 3 minutes into the entrance, and we heard a blood curdling scream, not once, but twice, one exactly like the other, but for some reason, we didnt freak out, mostly move our heads in that direction. Also keep in mind that this is pitch black and it adds even more to the mood. So we keep walking slowly, and we all hear a door slam shut, and we just make a mad dash to the streets. My heart was beating so fast because its one of those moments where nobody should make any sudden movements, or you will scare the living hell out of everyone else. I was the only one telling them that we should go back. It wasnt too scary although that scream and door slam did startle me. I wish we went back though, I was curious for more. We ended up staying out the rest of the night, and just doing stupid stuff.

    A few years back me and two good friends were making our way home through an area of Norwich called Catton in the small hours of the morning. We cut through an alley way which we had used many times before. This alleyway is about 100m long with a 90 degree bend in the middle and is lined with 6ft fences on either side. As we entered the alleyway there was a lady walking her dog in front of us. i can remember her turning around as we entered the alley (the moonlight caught her face). I can remember thinking she must be scared with three lads following her at night in a dark alleyway. anyways she turned the corner in the alleyway and we turned it about 10 seconds later. There was no one in the alleyway in front of us. I asked my friends where could she have gone? they replied that neither of them had even seen a lady. The alleyway was too long for her to have run away and my mates never even saw her. I believe this was a ghost.

    This is pretty weird. Google earth has a marker for the bus accident that was suppose to never have happened according to the city.

    Creepy...I have heard of that story before about the bus accident and how the kids push your car across the tracks. That is so cool that you were able to do it!

    I have another creepy story that involves a bus that my grandfatehr told me. It was up north (I recall Penn. for some reason) and it was my grandfathers cousin and his partner and they were eating at a restruant. Well, they left the restruant and went to the cop car where a boy walked up to them and knocked on their window. They exted the car to talk to the boys and he started crying uncontrolable. So they asked him if he was lost and he noded yes. So they asked him to come in their car and they would take him to the station. Well, they get going and when they pass an certain intersection the boy tugs the partners shirt and still crying points down the street they just passed. Well they U-turned and turned down the way. They kept on going and when ever they thought of turning around they boy would belt out in tears even louder than before. Well way out of the way and out of town. There is a big clearing in the trees that shouldn't have been there. So they stopped and told the boy to stay and went to go chekc it out. When they looked over the tree clearing, they saw a rolled over school bus down in the deep ditch. They called for paramedics and and started doing precedure. When they finally pulle dout the bus, there was a whole class, teacher, and driver inside. All were in pretty bad condition as thier bus took out a whole bunch of thick trees and then rolled down a decient drop. Well evenyone was ok except for one boy. He had bleed from the skull and there was no pulse....it was the boy who lead them there. They ran back to the car and the boy was gone...no signs what so ever. The report read that they were on patrol when they found the bus...but they know better.

    Ya, I've also heard about the Bust Accident, countless times. But considering the shady people and their programs that have "recorded" the events there, I wouldn't beleive it, unless of corse someone I would trust would do something there,etc. I'd love to see some TDH pics./video of our little paranormal affairs!

    But in other news, its happened again. My Indiana Jones figures are haunted. Or at least their accessories are. Came in, sat some papers down on the bed, sat down on it, went through the TV channels, got up, and left. About 45 mins. later, I come back, and well what do you know, a repeat offender, one of the whips has moved from the feet of the toys, over to the side of the desk.
