“Both of my lungs collapsed at the same time (almost over 50% collapsed) and I was walking around like I was perfectly normal. Until I decided to go to the ER for bubble sounds in my chest. None of the doctors could figure out why this had happened to me. They didn’t know how I was just up and walking around and laughing.”—owlsunflower
“I turned to the other person in the room, who I barely knew, and said “My sister is getting engaged right now,” without having the intent of speaking at all.
He politely asked why I said that, and I had to shake my head and say “I don’t know.”
A few days later I found up that, sure enough, ah that exact moment on the far side of the world, she had said “yes” to Mr. Right.
I hadn’t even known she was dating.”—bookeater
“When I was 10 I had a radio and bean bag chair in my room. As I was starting to fall asleep the radio suddenly changed the channel multiple times before I heard the bean bag chair in my room slowly fold in on its self making the noise a bean bag chair would make if someone where to sit in it. Not sure what caused this but certainly freaked me out.”—jillyboel1
“I had a sleep paralysis nightmare when I was a kid, where I saw a red-eyed dark figure standing in the doorway. It’s always stuck with me, and I’ve called him the boogeyman ever since. One day I was browsing Reddit and somebody painted a picture of their “sleep paralysis demon”. It was like the guy had painted my exact dream. And then a bunch of people commented that they had seen the same creature. It always makes me uneasy to think about.”—level1biscuit
“My dad owned a small garden shop, so I’d stay behind the checkout after school till the shop closed. This was until I see a tall man wearing all black, like a trench coat, walking past my dad and smiling at me before going into a staff only area. I jump up to stop him, even though I was 7. This back area filled with new shipments. I turn the corner but nobody is there. There was nowhere he could’ve gone. I ask my dad to check the CCTV after closing, but it’s only shown me jumping up and running, and running out of frame. Weird stuff, never felt comfortable there again.”—bariton3
“I was walking to work one really early winter morning, and about 30 feet from my house it felt like it got significantly colder. I zipped up my jacket and kept walking, about a third of the way to work the light I was going to cross at went out. No crash I could hear or anything obvious, it just went from green to dead. I thought, “weird but I got work to do.” At the halfway point, with no sunlight anywhere, a street light way ahead of me went out. I stopped because as it flickered before dying it made me uneasy. I stood for less than a minute, and all the streetlights in front of me, starting from the closest to the first light, started flickering and going out, and it was only the ones on my side of the road. At this point I said nope, turned around, went home, and called in. I heard sirens later in the morning but was not going to investigate. Been maybe 5 years and it still freaks me out when a street light suddenly flickers and goes out.”—fireice1992
“So when I was a kid, I slept with my bedroom door open because my cat liked to cuddle me. Our hallway was just a round hallway, and I could see the bathroom door and my parent’s bedroom door (though it was dark, it was in view). I also slept with my lights only dimmed.
One night, I can’t sleep for some reason. I for some reason call out for my mom, and I see her standing near my doorway, kind of turned away from my with her hand on her face and her hair draping. I know it’s her because she slept in a big purple t-shirt that night, but she’s completely still. Static. Mind you, I’m wide freaking awake. I might have been watching TV before this (3 am Disney channel, probably). When I call out to her, she doesn’t move at all.
Blink. She’s gone.
I start freaking out and calling out to her for real, and that’s when I hear their door open and close and my mom rushes to my aid. I think she either slept with me all night or I stayed up all night watching TV to pacify myself. I started sleeping with my door closed out of that and I don’t look too carefully in darkness.”—pepper-reddits
“I used to fence. I was at a tournament and had just started a bout against a competitor. You win the bout by being the first to 5 points. I score what I believe to be first point, but the official indicates the match is over and I’ve won. I stood there confused for a second, but my opponent seems to agree and salutes and approaches for a handshake, so I go along with it. I check the scorecard and it says I’ve won 5-2. Totally lost probably 4 or 5 minutes of time. Hasn’t happened since to the best of my knowledge, but it’s been 20 years and I still wonder what happened.”—wickedpixel1221
“Long story short, I lost a jacket at a roller rink when I was in 3rd grade. I had a lucky rabbit foot in the pocket that I bought at the skate shop inside.
Months later, my mother, who is adopted, found her birth mother and her half sister. The first time I went to my newly found Aunt’s house, she said she had a jacket that might fit me. It was my jacket, rabbit foot still in the pocket.”—jiveabillion
“At friend’s house. Friend was in garage working on dirt bike. Driveway empty because parents left a while ago. Go inside to grab a soda but decide to look for his cat. Who I haven’t seen all day. I walk into the office and as I’m calling her name, a deep man’s voice goes “Meow” right into my right ear. I jump and run around the main floor looking for who said that. Didn’t find anyone.”—JmyKane
