I lived in a townhouse with neighbors who always wanted to believe something spooky was happening. One day they seemed all shaken saying that during the night they had heard footsteps coming up the stairs, then a jar of coins started to rattle on the bedside table. I asked them what tim ethat happened. I then explained that I couldn't sleep and went to make a cup of tea for my wife and I. I walked upstairs with the two cups and had to close the bedroom door with my foot, which unfortunately slammed. This vibration rattled the coins. My neighbors seemed disappointed.

When I was eighteen my friend told me about this ghost (Nona) that her family used to contact through an Ouija Board. We brought it to my house and into my bedroom. We put on a spooky Pink Floyd song and tried to contact her. After asking to speak with her Tami said, "Are you there Nona?" The little piece we were holding slid to No. We both screamed, "You did that!". Then we screamed, "No I didn't!" at each other. We threw the board on the ground and ran out of the house. From the time we did that weird things started happening in the house.

@Kalimata: I love "non-locality"! It proves that there's something we cannot explain AT ALL (yet!). But it exists!

[quote">Dissociative identity disorder...[/quote">
@El_Chinche: That's a distinct possibility & explains many 'supernatural' things. BUT that would mean this sort of thing happens to @FancyLad (or @FancyLady if she has it) a LOT! A WHOLE LOT! Not just once in a while, eh?

@zombunny: Raccoons? LOLZ! @FancyPup would drive them away, right @FancyLad?

@QueenZira: You got the quote right, it's a classic line! (I paraphrased it)

@5cats: give me 5 minutes and a bottle of superglue and I promise you, NOTHING will move in your bathroom!

@ Fancy: it's time for you to leave the "spice" alone.

Two weeks ago I was on the PC, there was a loud "clunk" in the bathroom. I turned to see what the cat had done this time, but she was sleeping on her cat-perch. (Well, awake now, ears up! But obviously was asleep when the clunk occured)

So I go see what the noise might have been: a back-scrubber had fallen into the bathtub. How did a flat object fall off a flat surface?
Unless you can explain it? I file it under: Weird but True!

A few days later my toothbrush fell into the sink in similar circumstances. BUT it may have been resting on an angle against the toothpaste, which provides a possible explaination and thus is "Weird but Explainable"

There is more to this reality than we (currently) can explain.

I am quite sure that people have seen or experienced weird stuff, some of this is/was explainable - there may be things we either will never be able to explain or things that we do not yet knoe how to explain. To jump from that to the idea that these are- what- souls-spirits, dead humans in other words is a huge leap with nothing to back it up.

I don't know if I believe or not, however I have experienced some pretty unexplainable spooky poo before...

there should be another option. Having seen something that appeared to be a ghost but I just don't believe in ghosts.

I've seen what people might consider a ghost experience, but personally believe they don't happen and it must of been something else.

I don't believe in ghosts, but I'm pretty sure everyone has a soul, an inner spirit.

Nothing has happened to me so I can't believe it YET.

I dont believe, but I am not close minded. There is no such thing as "supernatural" only "Nature" and "things about nature we havent been able to explain yet".

Just because we didn't see it happen, and can't think of a natural cause of some event, doesn't mean there isn't one.

Preach, brotha, preach.

Stupid question. We all know if you say Biggie Smalls three times in the mirror he comes back from the dead to try and kill you.

I believe in spirits and an afterlife, that's not foreign to me at all, and I wouldn't rush to call someone crazy if they ever told me they had an experience either.

"There are more things in Heaven and Earth Horatio than are provided for in your philosophy."

And maybe it's just me, but I've always promised myself that if I was ever in a similar situation I'd try friendly conversation. After all, they were alive once too right? I'd bet they'd be thrilled just to be treated normally again.

It just feels like the right way to keep peace between the worlds, for the betterment of everyone involved. *shrugs* YMMV.

@Fancy, your experience is reminiscent of the events that preceded the formation of religion.

My advice: Start your own religion based on this event of unknown (to you) method.

Dissociative identity disorder,after years of dealing with internet bs fancy's mental state has finally snapped and his mind created another personality to deal with it. This separate identity, whom I will dub the fancytroll, is now trying take over as the dominant personality through series of inane pranks in the hopes that fancylad will break down into a catatonic state allowing him to take over and turn IAB into a website dedicated to celebrity gossip.

Hey it's just as realistic an explanation as ghosts.

Fancy, I am not saying it is not weird or creepy, but at this point it is unexplained, not supernatural. You are making an unwarrented conclusion.
