Quote from: MV on April 29, 2010, 12:19:03 PMspeaking of ouija boards, i wish art would just go ahead and tell his fucking ouija story rather than referencing it repeatedly and refusing to go into details. i mean... how bad could it REALLY be? come on. it's not like he's being asked to recall the moment of his mom's rape by 4 street thugs on a sketchy barbados street corner as he helplessly looked on in shame like some balding husband in a cuckold video.

Quote from: Pirate King Atomsk on May 26, 2008, 07:37:24 PMI've had at least one possible experience. I was surprised to find it was a very common one, too - thanks to C2CAM.I was probably 8 years old or so when I awoke from sleeping in a cold sweat and numbing sensation all over my body. I felt an extreme sense of terror when I realized I was awake, but couldn't move. I attempted to call out to my parents, but unfortunately, I couldn't speak either. At the height of my struggling, an old, witch-like face of a decrepit woman loomed in towards me and screamed like a banshee right in my face. As she did this, it felt as if all the energy I had in me was sucked directly out of my body. I don't remember what happened after that for awhile, but when I regained full consciousness she was gone, and I could move (ever so slightly)..and speak, even though it was very weak and raspy. My parents soon came in to my calling out for help, and (as any sane parent would), they told me it was one of my frightmares and I was fine. But since that night, I've never felt quite the same health-wise. Years and years later, I discovered that what I experienced has happened throughout history in an almost exactly similar fashion. It's referred to by medical professionals as 'sleep paralysis", but there is no exact explanation as to the almost ever-present appearance of the woman during this event. Due to this fact, many others call it the 'Old Hag Syndrome". Apparently, as the story goes, the old hag visits primarily young males and takes their youthful energy for her own purposes. There's supposed to be something specifically about the energy of males. I believe on one of Art's shows, someone said that it's because she does something "sexually" to the victim. So, long story short, I may have been raped by a witch.
Quote from: b_dubb on August 31, 2010, 10:49:55 PMi grew up about a mile north of the Dayton International Airport. back in the late 70's i was in the living room which had a West facing bay window which was very large. my brother (17 at the time) and i (8 at the time) were busy wrestling, beating on each other. good brotherly fun. when suddenly we both stopped, looked at each other, and immediately knew something was WRONG. at that point we both looked out the West facing LARGE window and saw a huge disc shipped craft pass slowly, deliberately overhead. i remember the disc changing in appearance - at first a disc with aluminum surface, then two objects - a disc and a large sphere connected by what looked like lightning (the sphere looking like a small sun), and then the ship looked very old. we watched the ship fly over the sight till we could no longer see it. as it was basically above the house. then we could see it again in the East (again a large window here facing to the East) as the disc seemed to turn up and begin to rise and then suddenly GONE. shortly after that, two F4 Phantoms from Wright Patterson AFB went screaming overhead - heard a sonic boom here which is noteworthy because that kind of speed is forbidden except under emergency conditions. The F4 Phantoms looked like triangular DOTS in the sky as they zoomed overhead. the disc was about the size of an aircraft carrier compared to the size of the F4's. if they were at the same attitude, that's roughly what the size comparison would be in terms of scale. immediately after that event i have no memory of what happened. except that we were both really scared. i think i may have gone to bed because i was so shocked. no idea really.years later i was reading a UFO book which described the incident we witnessed. Air Traffic Controllers at the Dayton International Airport picked it up on radar and were able to actually view it from the tower since it was only a mile north of the tower. Wright Patt AFB also picked it up on their radar (Wright Patt was only 15 minutes away) and scrambled fighters to intercept. newspapers, police and emergency personnel (i'm assuming fire department) were contacted with reports. the sighting occurred in late summer ( Aug/Sept ?) and during the late afternoon. naysayers frequently bring up the weather balloon confound. weather balloons don't travel at high speeds in a totally linear path. i don't believe this was an experimental aircraft because the amount of thrust required to keep something that massive in the air would create so much noise that everyone within 15 miles would have been made deaf from the roar of the engines. and since there was no noise you would have to float the idea that the USAF had figured out anti-gravity back in the 70's. skeptics are welcome to try and find alternative explanations. but they won't change my opinion that what i saw was a craft produced by an alien intelligence from another place and possibly another time.additionally ... there have been multiple events in the Dayton area that merit discussion. one that i remember that NEVER get's discussed was an event that occurred in 1987-1988. during rush hour traffic, a glowing red orb passed at low altitude over the city of Dayton, Ohio. cars, trucks, and all electrical equipment within a several mile radius were rendered inactive. so basically everyone in rush hour traffic was left stuck on freeways, bridges, roads while this glowing red object passed overhead. people were getting out of their cars and watching the object pass overhead. so imagine thousands of people standing by their motionless cars on a freeway during rush hour (afternoon - happened around 5pm). people STANDING ON THE FREEWAY. watching a glowing red object fly overhead. that night on the news, the news anchor, visibly shaken and confused, reported that the Air Force said the object was a satellite in a decaying orbit with an exposed nuclear power source that was emitting an EMP which caused the localized electrical failures. what's scarier? alien spacecraft? or a nuclear bomb falling to earth from outer space?when people discuss disclosure i usually respond with WHY? our government won't tell us the truth about why we go to war. where the bailout to the financial sector went. they don't tell anyone about anything. EVER. they will dole out bullshit at the drop of a hat. but they never discuss the truth. so why do we look to our lying government/military to tell us the truth about ANYTHING? if they know anything about aliens/alien technology, they don't want to disclose anything about it. because they'd have to share with our "friends". because we learned from the atom bomb/h bomb program that once that knowledge is shared it's only a matter of time till someone really unpleasant get's their hands on itso ... believe. don't believe. it's up to you. but don't wait for the government to tell the truth because that is NOT in their nature. b_dubbps - i have two other ufo stories (but the big one is described here) and couple of ghost stories. i'm patiently waiting for my bigfoot experience. but growing increasingly convinced the big hairy dude is merely a mythic beasty.
Quote from: robin on September 18, 2010, 12:51:04 AMI know this is going to sound whacked, but here we go..... I attempted suicide when I was 22 (I'm now 44.) I won't go into the boring details of why I attempted suicide, I'll just explain the "supernatural" part (I put it in quotes because I don't know what else to call it.)I took approx. 100 sleeping pills with a lot of vodka (and almost died, actually.) I was hallucinating after a few hours. But the main part of the story, for this website, is that I was being poked over and over and "taunted" by very tall "black" "creatures". (I put "black" in quotations because I don't mean "black" as in African American, I mean "black" as in they were burnt from a fire and their skin was charred. And I use the term "creatures" because they were quasi-human. And I mean "taunted" and poked as in I was being tortured by melevolent beings. And I mean "tall" as in they were maybe 6 or 7 feet tall. They were also very very skinny.) This really really happened..but was it a hallucination or a real event? I've always wondered wtf .. .anyway.... do you guys think I went to "hell" and was punished, or what??? I'm so confused. I'm not Christian, but my family is......was I influenced by their beliefs, or what ? Wow, after reading this, it sound CRAAAAZY, but it really happened, and, mind you, I have a subscription to Skeptical Inquirer magazine (for the past 3 years). I'm a skeptical and rational person. What do you guys think of my experience?
