Quote from: Garrettimus on November 14, 2011, 03:18:47 PMPardon me if my English isnÂ´t perfect.Well, my dad was installing a small chandelier a long long time ago by the time he was married for the first time. After attaching it to the ceiling, he went to another room and minutes later he hears a "boom". The chandelier was lying on the floor.He repeated the operation and then it happened again. He got angry and he cursed at it! Then he was slapped out of thin air. In the face. His first wife at the time heard the noise and actually saw a red mark (hand) on his face.There were no previous episodes of that kind in the house. He left the chandelier alone.
Quote from: Avi on November 14, 2011, 04:17:49 PMWow, thanks for elaborating. See, I knew there was more to the story: Ghosts Decry Inefficient Chandeliers, Demand Compact Fluorescents! Was this a new chandelier, or an old chandelier being moved within the house? Did your dad replace the original light fixtures after the incident? Of course, if ghosts start objecting merely to foul language, we're all in trouble, damnit. Ouch!What is your native language, if you don't mind my asking? You seem to be doing very well in English, but I hear there are ghosts who don't like split infinitives, or ending sentences with prepositions. You'll have to watch your cheeks as you type.

QuoteI think a podcast with the two of us talking about randomness would be incredibly entertaining.
Quote from: Garrettimus on November 14, 2011, 04:37:57 PMThank you. IÂ´m Brazilian, I speak Portuguese. IÂ´ve been to Los Angeles in 2010, I love the U.S.As far as I know, it was a new chandelier. I donÂ´t know all the details by heart, IÂ´ll talk to dad and let you guys know.
Quote from: analog kid on November 14, 2011, 03:54:15 PMI've never had any unexplainable supernatural experiences. This despite growing up with a mom who was a channeler and a medium.

Quote from: Treading Water on November 14, 2011, 05:48:58 PMGarrettimus, welcome to the forum. Your English is fine. I'm looking forward to more stories.
Quote from: Avi on November 14, 2011, 04:58:56 PMCool. Please don't be put off by my joking; yours is a very interesting occurrence, indeed.I love Brazilian music, Guarnieri and Villa-Lobos, especially.
Quote from: Usagi on November 14, 2011, 05:56:38 PMI'd advocate slapping said ghost back for perpetuating grammar myths! Perhaps it would depend on what decade the ghost lived in...
Quote from: Garrettimus on November 14, 2011, 06:07:43 PMI like jokes, no problem. Thanks.Where are you from?
Quote from: Eddie Coyle on November 15, 2011, 02:50:10 PM Reagan was shot the next day...I'm going out on a limb and saying it had nothing to do with what I saw the night before...though Reagan was shot by a Hinckley. And the protagonist on Greatest American Hero was....Ralph Hinckley
Quote from: b_dubb on November 16, 2011, 07:32:29 PMthis is one of those matrix moments. like the other night ... there was this strange ass punk song playing on the local college station. i shut off the car and went inside. the next morning i go out and start my car up. there's that same strange punk song playing on the radio. at the exact place where i'd shut the car off the night before. freaky
Quote from: Avi on November 10, 2011, 06:16:35 PMAs for Fry's Girl, she called me an asshole several threads over, so I believe the road is wide open. But the more I think about it, the more fitting it seems. Fry's Girl would rock your world, my dear Flaxen. A romantic rendez-vous at the shooting range, followed by a foray into tanning hides, ends with a midnight dip in the stock tank, where you lovebirds could bathe one another while tearing off strips of deer jerky with your teeth. Yowza!
Quote from: Centurion40 on November 15, 2011, 10:20:10 AMShe went back, tried to tighten the light bulb (wondering if the bulb was loose and she was also worried that there might be faulty wiring) and pulled the cord to turn on the light again. After the light came on, she stood back, staring at the light, pondering what the problem might be. She said that, at that point, she saw the cord pull itself down and the light flicked off. Scared, she took off out of the house and waited outside for the potential buyers.
Quote from: Vatar on November 20, 2011, 10:02:12 PMI've always wondered how much electricity and water is wasted by spirits turning lights and faucets on. I think the EPA should do a study to measure the impact of paranormal activity on global warming.
Quote from: Usagi on February 04, 2012, 02:49:20 AMThank you for posting this, even if it was difficult. It's good to get things like this out in some way, considering how rarely the opportunity seems to present itself "in real life".I was going to make a joke about the sound you heard in the U District just being the usual Ave bum gone astray, but I figured I shouldn't since your brief account had a ring of authenticity. But, I guess I just did. Damn.
Quote from: CoastCanuck on February 06, 2012, 05:51:37 PMOn my drive to work this morning, (it was still dark out), I saw a bright green object in the sky. It travelled from west to east, faster than anything that I've ever seen. I only saw it for about a second, then it was gone. I'm positive I saw this object.
