With Halloween nearly upon us all I was wondering if any posters have had some encounter's of another kind.

When it comes to inexplicable weirdness, are we excluding the positive RL stories in the media and cheerful fans that we've been seeing over the last couple of weeks? ;)

I once went an entire month commuting to London without a single delay, every train both ways left on time and arrived on time.  There was something really spooky about that.

The correct answer is "No, nobody has ever seen anything paranormal".

Funnily enough I watched an old Hammer House of Horror last night. It was hilarious.

I posted this story a few years ago, but here it is again -  a friend of mine was made redundant and got a job as a security officer at Hatfield House in Hertfordshire.

He worked the afternoon shift and one part of his job was that every so often he had to walk round a prescribed route around the house and grounds and 'clock in' to the time clocks.  He got to know most of the staff that works there and as he walked through the gardens, he would sometime see one of the old gardeners pottering about in the flower beds.  My mate would nod, the gardener would smile back.  One day one of the archivists/librarians asked my mate to give her a hand to  carry some old boxes of photos from an attic room to her office.  She was going through them to put on a kind of  'upstairs - downstairs' display.  As my mate looked through the photos he saw a group shot of gardeners, one of which was the old boy he nodded to.  He pointed to him and said 'He hasn't changed much'.  The librarian told him he must be mistaken as the photo was taken in the 1920's, and all the old gardeners on it would be dead by now.

He hasn't seen the old boy in the garden since.  Now my friend is not someone who believes in ghost, he still doesn't, but he swears blind what he saw, and says there must be an explanation - he just can't think what it is.

Absoluetly not, and a wasted sheet of toilet roll, which by rights in the interest of been green I should've tucked back into the loo roll to be reused.

If anyone has I suggest they talk to James Randi.
He has been prepared to give a $1,000,000 prize to anyone who can prove it.
The offer has been on the table for nearly 50 years.
It'll still be on the table in 50 years time.

Nevermind James Randi, how about Most Haunted as proof these things don't exist. Thats been on for a million years and I don't think they have ever caught anything but specs of dust on camera, ever.

The offer has only been made the last 10 years, and it is not for people who 'see' or experience anything paranormal, its for people who make a living claiming to be psychics, spoon benders, and the like (which most people agree are tricksters and charlatans - bit like that show Most Haunted).

 

A few years ago now, friend of mine had missed the last bus and was walking home from his girl friends village into town.  As he's walking along the country road he sees another man in front, walking in the same direction.  He speeds up his pace to catch up with the other walker and when he's a few paces away calls out "Hang on mate, I'll walk along with you".  The other man then just slowly de-materialises into a mist in front of him.  To say he was scared was an under statement.  He ran the last couple of miles to his home and terrified his mam and dad with his condition when he arrived.   It must be some strange ' I'm a real man me, not believing in ghosts' thing because like the story above, my mate says he doesn't believe in ghosts but has no explanation to what he saw that night  all those years ago that terrified him.

I think we all saw the England defence do that in 2008.

Well I don't know about anyone else, but that's me convinced.

If Scooby Doo was real life, the number 1 crime in America would be dressing up as a ghost.

Not so much paranormal as cryptozoological, about 2 years ago I was driving down Tan House Lane in Halifax (its the one that runs round the back of shibden Hall) it was about 9:30 pm and dark, as I passsed the last of the speed bumps and started to accelerate into the 40mph stretch of road, something large and dark ran across the road about 15 metres in front of me. I'm convinced it was a big cat, it was black and about the size of a large labador or medium sized rottie. It was not a dog, its gait was definitely feline.

 

apparently other people in the shibden valley  area claim to have seen a large black feline.

I have done that thing a few times where you think of someone who you haven't seen for ages and then you see them soon after.

Actually I have an open mind about the paranormal, sure, people can scare themselves with shadows and what have you, but there are several well documented poltergeist reports for example.
