Not sure if anyone caught this on Reddit, but it's intriguing to say the least.

Let me preface this that I do not know this person, nor whether this is real or a hoax. But regardless, it's an intriguing and frightening story.

So, apparently there's a guy about to turn 40 who retells a story from when he was six and woke up claiming he was 40 with a family and was killed in a bomb blast in Boston on his 40th birthday. The guy says he has no memory of this incident, and his parents say he collapsed and forgot the whole thing after I guess a few hours.

Here's the story on reddit.

I hope for everyone's sake, this is a hoax. Or just a lucid nightmare from his childhood.

Not totally on topic but when I was about 6 I apparently told my next door neighbours about a ski accident I had where I broke both my legs. I told them so much detailed information that they where convinced it was a past life memory and prompted one of them who was a journalist to write some books on the paranormal.

I have never been skiing and never intend to in case it was a premonition of some kind.

Well, if this is true.

The wife is a bit of a bitch, for not being more understanding, but he should have told her earlier also.

Because yeah, easy enough to not be in town on your birthday.

Although........
Final Destination does come to mind.

Well, he should stay out of Boston. I have a city I won't go to because of something similar (luckily its neither Paris or Las Vegas!). And when my main teacher, Harold Schroeppel, was in his 50s he was told by Swami Rama "You have 89 years", and he died when he was 89 (although he may have expected it, and thus created it occurring in his own universe).

Could you elaborate or is it too personal to discuss with starngers?

It may be that this is more common than previoulsy thought.

I'm 38 and am a bit freaked about turning 40 too. That dreaded "check-up" is not something I look forward to.

As for the guy in the OP, stay outta Boston!!!

Glad to. Harold was well on yoga level, and "hung out" with the big boys of his time. He knew Swami Rama well, and Rama was a guest in his home at times. My favorite story is Harold told us how Swami Rama was taking a shower in Harold's newly-installed downstairs shower and Rama would open his mouth to let the water flow in and it would flow out the other end as a cleansing technique. I don't know how he knew this, and it doesn't seem possible, but Swami Rama was the yogi who was tested at the Menninger Clinic because he could stop his heart at will. This stuff is way off topic, so back on topic....

....the fellow should stay away from Boston! Especially during his 40th year. If he lives there maybe it's time for a location change for a year, which would probably be exactly what he needs and is "supposed" to do.

No, glad to. While doing one of Harold's longer techniques while he moderated I had a very clear "look" at myself likely dying of natural causes in a specific room in a specific city during a lecture tour. Some of his techniques work on shifting the future once you can see it, but I still won't go to that city. As I amended my post, luckily it wasn't Paris or Las Vegas!

Agreed as off topic, apologies to the OP, I would be interested in you starting a thread about this though.

On topic, I think it would be benificial to the person in question to be out of town if only for his own mental state as I imagine it would be a very traumatic build up to the day.

the tail is not even internally consistent :

the tails about his fathers death and moving to boston are classed as significant harbringers

but the fact he married a young lady called " Darlene " some years previously didn't warrant any mention or concern

think about that

Agreed, I wold be very wary of marrying someone who had the same name as my wife in an early death premonition.

Unless I misread and he found out about the incedent after he was married. Also to call his son by the same name was just asking for trouble IMO.

You realize this was posted in r/nosleep right? From the sidebar:

a reply to: behindthescenesSo he says he going to New York for his birthday, but what if he got that one little detail wrong like the daughters names and it really was New York where the explosion happens instead of Boston? Kinda scary.

Did no one notice this off to the right?


It's a horror story. It's not real. Nothing is going to happen on 23 October.

Lots of things will happen on October the 23. just not the fictional story in the post. It is an understandable error but the point in my opinion remains valid.

Whoops! Missed that part. I guess Ill go erase that off my doom porn calendar.

Plus, I wrote it in ink.

No no. I just dont buy it. Even if there is the SLIGHTEST chance his entire family would die and he isnt resourceful enough to either flat out lie about something, "My mom is dying and wants to spend the week with me", or "I have testicular cancer and need to see a great specialist in Atlanta this one week, sorry only opening"...what ever.

Then he doesnt entirely believe it.....please. The fake "I just dont know, it could be just a dream...who cares if I guessed everything else right almost. I would be known as a crazy mad man by now for the sheer level of my efforts to empty Boston on that day. I would call in bomb threats to every building in the city I could and muster every ounce of fear porn power to save as many as I could. BUT at least my freaking kids. EVEN if just in the off chance I was right.

This is BS man.

a reply to: adjensen
Just noticed your post. Its a crappy horror story. Its awful. The premise is great, execution is totally unbelievable. Maybe a lifetime story or something.

I can understand this.

Recently unknown to me, my well meaning and loving wife arranged a surprise 60th birthday for me. The worst thing about the whole thing is that it caused me to focus on my age. Before that I never thought much about my age. I knew I was getting older but I never thought about exactly how old I was.

My birthday really focused my mind on that fact that I am now 60!!!!!. Now I find myself thinking I am old. 60 is that magical age when people transfer from middle age 50 something into an OLD person. Now when I look for a job I worry about my age when I never did before. When I think about health and fitness issues I cant help but think of my age.

I have always believed that we are only as old as we feel but now somebody stuck a great big branding iron on my mind and burned in the number "60."

Psychologically; the birthday has harmed me.

Sometimes well meaning and loving people don't think about the implications of their good intentions particularly when someone has near life long heath issues and the economy is very quiet.
