Hey Pandas, What Is The Most Bizarre Thing That Has Happened To You? (Closed)
I firmly believe everyone's had their fair share of bizarre events in their lives, so what was it? Please share.
Another thing is the connection between me and my dog. My dog was in the backyard playing and I was cleaning the attic. No-one else was in the house. When I was in the attic I think I hit my head on something sharp and hard and I went unconscious. My neighbours said they heard my dog barking like crazy in the backyard, like really loud so they came over after a while to complain. They knocked and ran the doorbell but no-one answered since I was unconscious and my dog doesn't know how to unlock the backyard door to come in the house to greet them. They got worried after a while and came into the house by breaking down the floor. They saw my dog in the backyard and opened the door to see if I was outside. My dog they said ran faster than a cheetah and went directly under the attic latch. They came inside the attic and found me unconscious bleeding and took me to the hospital with my dog since he wouldn't leave my side. I still have no clue how he knew I was in danger (lots of bleeding) but I love him so much. Thanks, Loki
For me, existence itself is the most bizarre thing that's ever happened to me. Like, I didn't exist, and now here I am. This transition from non-existence to existence always baffled me.
My seven-year-old son and I were in the grocery store. He was very tall for his age. I was placing my groceries on the conveyor belt. He kept reaching over to grab candy. After two more attempts, I said, "Jon, look! You do that one more time and I am going to smack you." I was placing soup cans on the conveyor belt and up comes Jon's hand. I smacked it and turned to see an old woman. "I just wanted to get some gum," she said. I was so embarrassed. Jon screamed, "Mom, you smacked that old lady!" The cashier shoulders were going up and down in laughter.
A few years ago my alarm woke me up, I prepare myself in the bathroom, had breakfast and chatted with my housemates. I took my bike to the train station, commuted to the city, walked to my work, greeted my coworkers and starded to noticed someting was wrong... I felt really heavy, like I couldn't walk any more... Slowly I realised I was still in bed dreaming everything. After my alarm clock whent off, I just fell back sound a sleep. I was an hour late and I was furstrated I had to prepare myself all over again.
About 5 months ago my uncle died. Me and my mom were watching Netflix and then she got a phone call. She said that she had been getting spam calls all day and that she wasn’t going to answer it. In my head a voice screamed at me to answer the phone. I yelled at her and told her she needed to answer the phone. She picked it up and it was the police saying they had found my uncle dead on the floor inside his home after someone called in a wellness check. I still get chills about hearing that voice.
Being born. Because if I wasn’t born I wouldn’t be here.
When my great grandmother died me, two of my cousins, my aunt, and my nana all woke up at the same time and we just had that feeling that she was gone. We woke up and we just knew it. Its was sad yet comforting that somehow she must have given us some type of signal or something. Once we woke up about 15 minutes after that my nana called and said that she just got off the phone with my cousin (who had lived with great grandma at the time) and grandma was gone. Miss you great grandmother, love you ❤
It was Christmas eve, and I was coming out of my local grocery store to my car. As I was about 2 cars away, some dude in this elf costume comes out of nowhere. He's like, "Howdy, man! Do you want to buy some candy canes?!?" He literally looked like he was on drugs, so I just kept walking to my car. Right as I was backing up, the dude jumped behind my car! Thankfully my car has this emergency braking feature, so I didn't run him over, but jeez, I ain't going to my local grocery store anymore.
how different i am from my family. i am the compleat opposite from anyone in my family and it is kinda weird. i am the only one with blonde hair and I just look and act a lot different.
For me, the way my girlfriend and I met and started dating. We took AP Studio Art together in high school as strangers, then friends, and then crushes. Our attraction was not evident at first even after a few dates that we went on as "friends". The spark revealed itself after she was admitted to the hospital and nearly died. Almost losing her made me depressed and it brought us together.
Well the most bizarre thing is 2020. I don't know why this year is so unlucky and full of terrible things and so on...
One Halloween I was sent to write a story about an alleged haunted baseball stadium, was lead around it by a psychic , when we got onto the field I asked him if he could see any of the ghosts, he told me yes and then he pointed to one section of seats in the stadium saying they were all there watching us. I walked over to that section and from the field took a photo of all the empty seats and stairs and standing areas, didn't see a thing. Got back to the network and had them develop (yeah that long ago) the film...and once they did that, turns out...dozens of fans watching the game, all looking like shadows or something but clearly looked like human shapes...me looking at it from the field saw nothing...after years of Halloween stories involving staying overnight in haunted places, interviewing people who said they are werewolves and vampires, stuff like that where nothing happened this was the only story on that day that caused me to wonder what just happened. A little creeped out.
My answer is kind of a mix between a crazy (but great) coincidence and the bizzare thing. And it probably sounds like it’s made-up, but true story.
Sooo my dad works in a building next to my school. Every day after school I’d go up to his office on the fifth floor and he’d drive us home at about 5. Most of the time I just chill and do homework and stuff there, but on this day I watched YouTube. Do you guys know the channel Bright Side? Well, I was watching one of their ‘survival hacks’ videos. One of the tips was that in the case of a falling elevator, DO NOT DO THE COMMON MISCONCEPTION OF JUMPING. Instead, lay down flat on the floor so your whole body absorbs impact. You still might get injured or die, but it would be much better than jumping and risking hitting your head on the ceiling.
Anyways, I’m super grateful I learned that because later on that week (this all happened a little over a year ago) I went up to his office. But as I reached the 4th floor, instead of the doors opening, the elevator kinda...glitched. All the lights flickered our and I heard some creaking sounds. The elevator shook a little then started falling. Pretty slowly at first, but then it picked up speed.
I freaked out, but super-di-duper quickly laid down on the floor as the elevator dropped. Less than ten seconds later—the elevator was going super fast by now—the elevator hit the floor. It really hurt, but since I was only on the 4th floor, I was fine. I called my dad and the police got me out of the elevator.
So yep, that’s my bizarre experience! I learned a tip (THXXX BRIGHT SIDE!!!) and it saved me (I probably would’ve had died, but at least broken bones...). Yay!
When I was 15, I was drawing/colouring in some fire as part of an art project, and had the lyric "singing with a voice on fire" stuck in my head on repeat. Got up to stretch, looked out the window - and there was a car on fire right outside my house.
For me everything I have done is bizarre I'm different from everyone else in my family so yep I do pretty weird things
Kinda more paranormal than bizarre but whatever. I once woke up in the middle of the night in my old house. I was just staring at my Lego bin, and the drawer just opened. Yes sure I have cats BUT THEY WERE NEXT TO MEEE. THAT HOUSE WAS HAUNTED! HAUNTED I TELL YOU!
The way my cat and dog stare at the ceiling and look around and follow things that aren't there
Basically most of 2020 but one this one stands out. Upon reopening restaurants after the lockdown, our (Nevada) governor stated "Restaurants and sushi bars can reopen but sushi bars may not play music." I still have questions...what if the sushi bar is in a restaurant that plays music? Does the restaurant have to abide by the sushi bar rules or does the sushi bar get a pass? Or do they cordon off the sushi bar in sound proof hermetically sealed plastic sheets? What if someone in the sushi bar hears the music from the restaurant? Will they get a fine? Will they get COVID? I didn't know sushi bar music caused COVID. Why didn't anyone tell us? This is total bonkers!
I had a friend with astigmatism so bad that she barely could go through the doors without glasses. Astigmatism f*cked her length and width perception pretty bad. It was so funny, bizarre and crazy that we though she was just pretending to be that way.
Now, 15 years later, I'm that friend too. With exactly the same problem and almost exactly the same numbers on glasses prescription. Dear friend, I'm sorry for making jokes about it. It sucks!
Seeing the future. I know everyone is gonna be like WHAT?! that's impossible but its not cause I've done it.
Now it isn't like visions its more like I just KNOW
So when I was a kid like five I was one the train with my dad and brother and we were going to pick my mom up at work when two teenagers got on the bus. I said, "Those are bad boys the take stuff." My dad clapped a hand over my mouth and was like, "SHHHH"
They didn't hear and went on to the next train car. About 20 minutes later they came running out with a women's iPad and kindle they jumped at the next stop.
That's the only one that was big but I have had other moments like pushing on of my friends out of the way before a poster fell on them. Sometimes I can feel it like todays not gonna be a good day with one of my friends we will get in a fight. I also have moments where I space out and can feel something greater something sorta inhuman. I'm Christian so usually I believe its god. But I dunno.
So, I'd had a crush on a guy in fifth grade. I'd long suspected the feeling was mutual. He'd always been a little weird though, and was very interested in horror movies. he wasn't creepy or anything... except for this one time. On the last day of school, he came up to me and said something like... "Enjoy your life as an immortal", gave me a creepy grin, and dashed away. Spooked me out and stopped crushing on him since. If it was a reference to something, no one laugh at me. But it was definitely bizarre at the time.
More paranormal than bizarre. Me and my family were at the light house in St. Augustine Florida. My mom was getting a picture of me and my aunt when she turned around and said "I'm sorry sir but my daughter seems too young for you." Nobody was behind her and we were the only people in that room. Me and my aunt love anything paranormal so we got excited. St. Augustine is well known for being haunted.
My brother, Dad, and I had to go inside, and we forgot the key. My stepmom, Mary, was inside working on something, so technically Dad could have called her, but he also forgot his phone. So Dad, being very logical, was like ‘’yeah lets just yeet him over the fence” and so we boosted my brother over the fence to go through the back door and open the front. Well we did it and we all got inside and 2 minutes later Mary comes downstairs and says ‘’James, next time you come in, please don’t slam the door so hard that the windows upstairs shake. And screeching at the top of your lungs while I’m on a zoom call wasn’t great either, everybody heard it.”
Charlie: “I wasn’t screeching?”
Mary: “Then were you trying to sing?”
Dad and I: *cackling too violently to say anything*
(Note- Charlie is a fairly good singer, but if he tries to hit really high notes it sounds like a cat got its tail stuck in a screen door.)
I have run out of gas in my car only 2 times in my entire life.
The first time I was in my 20s driving in the pine barrens of NJ. When the engine cut off I was stranded on a road that was lined with pine forest. The very first car that came along had two guys who gave me a ride to a gas station and returned me to my car. The second time I ran out of gas I was in my 50s and I was traveling through the pine barrens again. The very first car that came along stopped and asked if I needed help. Again they took me to a gas station and returned me to my car. Now I never let the tank get below 1/4 full. It is said the Jersey Devil lives in the pine barrens and maybe he was looking out for me. Bizarre luck for sure!
I had what had to have been a glitch in the matrix when I was in middle school. There was this woman in a green coat that I saw everywhere. She was extremely distinctive looking; very tall, very thin, and had very pale blonde hair. I saw her everywhere, in the car next to mine, in the supermarket, walking on the sidewalk outside my school. And then she just vanished one day. I never saw her again.
When I was in 7th grade, my dad brought home a neglected chocolate poodle named Jeremiah. Jeremiah quickly became a fantastic member of the family and my best friend.
Fast forward only 3 years. My father passed away suddenly of bone marrow cancer. I was 15 and without my dad. I couldn't handle it and once I was left alone in the house many months after my dad's passing - I contemplated suicide. Jeremiah NEVER came upstairs to my room unless it was bedtime but I remember him running up the stairs and barking madly at me! He would not stop until I went downstairs. If my dad did not bring home that crazy little fluffball - I would not be here today.

I saw a UFO. I witnessed the beginning of an alien invasion. I know what the end of the world feels like... Stay with me here.
I worked for a pizza restaurant back in the day. During a busy Friday night near Oakland California, me and a coworker were taking trash out back to the dumpster. There was a baseball game at the Oakland coliseum. Probably the playoffs or something. You could see the lights from the stadium from where we were. As we walked out back we dumped the garbage. I was still closing the lid to the dumpster and my coworker was faced the opposite direction. He yelled out, "UFO!". I immediately turned around and I swear to you I saw a UFO in the sky just East of the Oakland coliseum. It was a glowing green orb just sitting there in the sky maybe 900 feet above the ground and a half mile from us. It was real, in that moment as the panic set in, my mind went to my family, my friends and everyone in the Bay Area that was about to be aware of the Alien invasion. This was it, we were all going to know the truth about aliens and UFO's. There was no mistaking it, it was a populated area on a summer night and the coliseum was packed. We were just two of millions of people that were witnessing the beginning of a new era. The aliens were here, it was an invasion, we were under attack. I can still remember that feeling. It rushed into me so quickly. My eyes focused into the dark sky as that green glowing orb was unmistakably there hovering right where I knew it was.
Then I read the word "Fuji" on the side. It was a Fuji blimp. For a full second prior to this, it was a UFO and the world was at it's end. I knew the feeling of the end of times. That part was real. That was horrifying, real and unmistakable. That part I know for sure. If we ever see real UFO's that don't turn out to be Fuji blimps, that are here to harvest our souls and steal our water, I can tell you what you'll feel. The feeling is real.
This one episode of a show where they licked a FRICKIN PIDGEN!!!
Once when I was little, I was at soccer practice and kicked the ball straight through the net. It wasn't broken or anything.
Ok so im about to sound like a crazy person, but like basically me and all my first cousins that are related by blood kinda have this thing... so basically we can all see shadows or blurs of human-like figures sometimes, and we'll all see them in the same spots, and also my sister and cousin NEVER get burned even when they straight-up touch something really hot or even on fire, also i have this thing a lot of times where im really good at guessing the future, dunno if i just think logically or can notice patterns really well or what, but its like i can always tell whats going to happen next. So um yeah i basically sound like a crazy person but i swear its true.
I'm just bizarre.
When I was 5, I made up a song about being a dramatic maniac.
It just feels bizarre when I think back about it.
P. S. Could anyone tell me how to make an Ask Pandas post? I don't know how.
I know people say this a lot but 2020.
Or maybe that time in 5th grade when I got married.
I’m just chilling in Rivendell, right? They’re calling me Estel, and I’m thinking that’s a weird name, but otherwise life is good. And then my dad, Elrond, calls me into his office and tells me that he’s not my dad, that I’m actually the king of this place called Gondor, my dad was a guy called Arathorn II (weird name right?) and my name is Aragorn II, and my inheritance is a broken sword...Okay, weird, but I can deal. Then, my friend Haldir shows up to take me to go live with a bunch of guys called Rangers and we kill stuff. On the bright side, Elrond’s daughter, Arwen, isn’t related to me anymore.
One of the most bizarre things that has happened to me was about two and a half years ago. My family and my friends family were on vacation in Vancouver, Canada. We had just finished touring a beautiful garden and were ready to get back home.
So we called a shuttle bus driver to pick us up and take us to the ferry dock. My sister and I, and our friends' family had just boarded the bus. My friend, let's call him J, was on the second step before the bus driver rudely started driving.
It was then that we realized my parents weren't on the bus. We told the rude bus driver to stop, we even pressed those 'stop' buttons, but he wouldn't!
The other passengers all told us, "There is no time! We are going to be late!" Even though it was only 10 in the morning.
Finally, the driver let us go. Unfortunately, we had to walk back to the garden where my parents were at, as the shuttle bus took off.
Every time I go to my friends house, she says things I was thinking, I tell her and we laugh. It has happened almost 10 times this month. And we say the same things at the same time, it has happened so often we don't even jinx each other anymore.
My aunt loved pigmy owls. They’re very small, incredibly rare and the chance of seeing one outside a zoo is uncommon. Three months after she passed from cancer, my mom (my aunt was her sister) and I were outside talking and a tiny pigmy owl landed in the tree about 6 feet away. It sat there for 5 minutes, just watching us. I’ve lived in Arizona 22 years and that was the only time I ever seen one. I really felt like it was her final goodbye to us.
my cats sometime bat at the air like there's a toy or something, but nothing is there. i also once had a dream about the next morning, but the next morning the complete opposite happened.
Someone got mad at me for getting my pencil. I was in the counselor's office and I came back then she took it. I asked for it back and she got mad. I got my pencil back after the teacher told her it was mine. She literally told me to use the one on the floor that didn't work. It was just stupid.
A few years ago, I swear I saw something in the bathroom mirror, near midnight. Three slashes appeared in the mirror, and it looked as if liquid silver were filling those slashes. They swirled, and then disappeared with a pop of dark grey smoke.
*haunted bathroom alert*
I was on holiday in Northern Ireland and was walking through Belfast with my girlfriend. I noticed out of the corner of my eye a lot of money scattered in the road. I instinctively went over to it and without saying anything, we picked up the notes. The only other person in the residential street was a person walking towards us on the pavement, but not taking any notice. It just seemed weird that so much money was all over the road and no-one else has noticed. As I'm from England, the money was Northern Irish bank notes, which I hadn't seen before. We took it back to the car and examined them. We weren't sure if they were real, but it totalled £130 in £10 notes. We had to try them to went to a restaurant and the money was accepted, so we also paid for our hotel with them, too!
I LICKED A TOILET SEAT
Had deja vu of being in a physics class, but it was the same event twice, on two different occasions. Weird
Well I went to Russia once and we were on the metro. Me and my sister were playing a game where we blow on each other then turn away when they try to blow on you. Then this old man with a walking stick comes over and taps me really hard on the head and then shakes his head at me. Then we were quiet and this one lady was like, 'come here, let's go find your parents.' I think he might have been someone important, someone we could have gotten in trouble from. I think that lady was trying to help us
I was at a Walmart one day, we were fixing to check out, and all of a sudden everyone started running out the front entrance. I didn't know why, I hear roumors that there was a box in one of the bathrooms that read "BOOM". I still don't know whatexaly happend...This was in Oklahoma btw... idk.
These didn't happen to me but still bizarre. I have three and they all have to do with death and spirits still being there. The first on ewas about my cousin who has two oler sisters. well he always talked about his "older brother" and everyone was always kinda freaked out because my aunt had had a miscarriage and they knew itwas a boy but no one ever told him that. Anywho one day my grandparents get a christmas card and everyone in their family signed it but there was another on in completely different handwritting and it was the name that they were going to use for the baby. When they asked him about it he simply said. "I gave him the card and he wrote it" kinda spooky. Also one day my mom woke up in the middle of the night and just went back to sleep. She later found out that her brother had died around that same time but because he lived in hawaii there was a time difference and she didnt find out until later.Last one, So after that uncle died, my aunt (His wife) started finding nickels everywhere and she was like "Is he leaving these for me?" and said to him "Darren this isnt gonna cut it I have children to take care of" so she started finding Quarters everywhere. She was also having a massage oen time and the massuse goes "excuse me but there's a man here and he's just pacing back and forth like he's anxious about something. She she had the lady describe him and she said, "Oh that's my husband! I just started dating again and so is our daughter" so yah pretty bizarre!
In the years leading up to her death, my mother, whose name was Mondaine, had a number of serious health issues. During one such crisis, we were sitting in her living room when the phone rang and the answering machine kicked in. We wanted to see who it was before picking up--this was in the days before cell phones--and a voice came over the line and very clearly said, "Mondaine has a tumor." Then the call ended. The answering machine did not record it.
At the time, she'd had a collapsed lung and was developing Guillain-Barre syndrome as an autoimmune response to the inflammatory substance the doctors had used to seal her lung.
Although it was not the "issue of the moment," the thing is, she DID have a tumor, and would die some years later from colon cancer. If she'd had a colonoscopy anywhere in that earlier time frame, the tumor would have been discovered and she would have had a more favorable outcome.
So, although the message from the disembodied voice was true, it was incomplete and out of context. Perhaps the spirit realm would do well to study information theory?
idk if this counts but when I was around nine-ish I was playing outisde in the garden. It was fall so it gets dark pretty early. I heard a loud noise, kinda like someone was starting an old car or a small plane, from above me. As I looked up I saw a flying objekt above our trees. It was huge. Looked like a huge hard disk with round lights from under. I am 100% sure I saw a ufo!!! I went inside to show my dad but as we went back outside it was gone, no noise, no lights.. Nothing.. literally no one believes me but I am so sure I witnessed some form of aliens!
I SAW A UFO dont think im crazy im being serious so i in middle school but one day walking up the drive way and this middle school was a different middle school but at the time i lived in caroline county so i was in long 3 mile stretched out farming fields with power lines but while i was waiting for my bus alone on the top of the driveway i kid you NOT a FRIGING TRIANGLE SHAPED SPACESHIP WITH THREE LIGHTS ON EACH POINT AND I COULD SEE THE DETAILS OF THE SHIP BECAUSE IT WAS LITERALLY SO CLOSE TO THE GROUND CAME OVER LANDED AND OH MY GOD A DOOR OPENED AND I SAW WEIRD SKINNY GRAY THINGS AND I RAN BEHIND THE BUSHES AND THEY STOOD THERE FOR LIKE 5 MIN AND WENT BACK IN AND FLEW OFF I WILL NEVER FORGET THAT DAY
About 5 months ago my uncle died. My mom and me were watching Netflix and she got a phone call. She said she’s been getting spam calls all day so she wasn’t going to answer it. In my head I heard a voice scream to answer the phone. I yelled at my mom to answer and she did. When she answered it was the police saying that they had found my uncle in his house dead on the floor.
My father accidentally punched me in the face once. I am very short for my age and if he lifts his arm up enough it's at my head level. We were also in public, so he rushed us to the car as quick as possible. It really hurt.
Not super crazy, but I lead a pretty normal life so whatever. Anyway:I was going to visit a friend who had a puppy and we were all playing in the from yard when my friend goes: “Sophia! Pick up the puppy! There’s a neighborhood dog coming around, he’s a real bully. He just roams the streets!” So I’m looking around for a big mean dog, maybe one with a chain around it’s neck- and down the street comes with Chihuahua wearing a sweater vest and strutting the streets like she owned them. Out of laughter and panic my friend goes: “she’s a thug!”
Dream-ception. I dreamed that I dreamed that I dreamed that I dreamed that I dreamed and woke up in Inception(the actual movie)
This happened the night after I first watched it.
Since my 16th birthday, my memory has gone berserk. Usually, someone would bring something up and I would remember it even small stuff, but now I just can't. It's so bizarre knowing you were there but not having even a vague memory of an event. It works backwards too, sometimes I can tell what's going to happen a few seconds before it does, I have reoccurring deja vu, I'm remembering things that I buried, things that I happened so long ago I shouldn't remember them. Things I don't even want to remember. The worst thing is that sometimes It doesn't even give me the memory just the feelings. The most bizarre example was when I was walking along a chainlink fence running my fingers across it and this sense of nostalgic dread hit me like a ton of bricks and I had a break down right then and there and I don't know why. It freaks me out sometimes.
Drunk person crashed their car into my house at 60 miles an hour.
being alive and 2020
I'm an accident baby, yay
I was having a really weird dream the other night. It was something about rats chasing me up the apartment stairs for some reason, which was weird and freaky. I told my mom the next day, me not knowing what this dream was telling me, and she helped me figure out the meaning of the dream. Turns out, it means I'm insecure about something (myself). I can say that it is true, as I have a Winter Recital this month and am trying to get more fit so I can be happy with myself in the costumes, and in the future. It's amazing how dreams work, right?
You know how if you take a video, then rewind it and play it and rewind it and play it so it goes back and forth seamlessly? I was at a gas station and the person there glitched. He just--it was--he looked possessed. Scared the s*** out of me lol
There's a character limit to what I can type....
1) Ninja Deer
2) The turkey who decided my chrysler was competition for a female turkey.
3) Turkey Vulture mating tree
4) How people react when I interact with my animals, or any animal.
5) The praying mantis that fixated on me and followed me everywhere for about a week to a week and a half.
6) Cows.....just Cows....
7) My Cat who proved that the 9 lives thing is real.
8) I've had so many brushes with Death I'm considering it a friend and those brushes as high-fives
I have more...but yeah...
Precognition. Ok, bear with me. Quite a few years ago I dreamt I was going on a date with Toby Maguire (No idea why him, but it could be because I have then recently watched the first Spiderman movie of 2002 XD) Anyway, so we go to a local mall of ours first and I run into my best friend there and I introduce Toby to her. Pretty normal so far. Now, this was around the time tazos were still a big thing and I was a sucker for it. Told Toby I just want to get a chips pack or 2 and see what I get. He seemed very chilled and said he would wait for me at the fountain. So I go into the one store and made the purchase, ripped open the first bag and got Patamon(Digimon). Couldn't remember the second one though. Anyway, got back with Toby and we headed off for a picnic which was up to where I could remember.
Now, fast-forward 2 weeks from that dream. So I didn't go anywhere with Toby Maguire but I did go to that same mall with another friend and everything that happened between running into that same best friend right up to the tazo (At the same store) and the specific one I got in the bag of chips as well as meeting my friend back at the fountain was exactly the same. Was so bizarre to me that I have remembered it all these years.
I was on a plane and some guy offered me a thousand dollars, and I refused but then he just put a hundred dollar bill in my hand and told me to keep it saying he won a ton on money. As a kid I was super confused he never asked for anyting or made a suggive commet. Just a super nice guy.
So this is going to sound completely ridiculous. A few years back I was going through the worst depression I had ever had after the loss of my grandfather. One night I was in my room, laying on the floor crying and listening to the local alt-rock station. I was feeling absolutely awful and helpless. The radio shifted mid-song to the middle of another song where it started with the lyrics “everything will be alright, alright”. On my floor, there was some spare change that fell out of my pocket. This is hands down the weirdest thing and I feel ridiculous sharing this but it’s true. A penny lifted up and LAUNCHED ITSELF across my room!! Never in my life have I seen anything so strange! I’ve had some other supernatural types of encounters, but none as bizarre as this one!
My parents always wanted two kids, and I am the youngest of those two.
The thing is, my Mom had two miscarriages before my older brother was born.
If one of those babies had survived, I wouldn't be here. I both, neither would my brother. We would be a completely different family.
It was a sunny Saturday, and I was in a restaurant for lunch with four or five school friends. One of the girls (I'll call her Abby) was known to us to have had dreams that came true (not necessarily a good thing) and flashes of precognition. She was sitting across the table from me WITH HER BACK TO THE ROOM when suddenly she covered her face with her hands and started saying "Oh no. Oh no. Oh no . . ." I could see a waiter with a trayful of milkshakes heading for a table near us. He rounded a corner and the tray and milkshakes overbalanced and ended up in a customer's lap. I said to Abby, "Was that what you --" and she, without turning around, nodded her head "Yes."
