This paranormal board gets weirder every day. I'm half expecting to see this pop up eventually:
"My plants died! I'm a very good gardner, so my plants don't die. I think a witch put a spell on them!"
Honestly though, Alcohol WILL do these things to you. When you're drunk and you wake up, you may THINK you remember everything - but you don't.
It's not that you're doing them unconsciously, it's that you were running on Autopilot during this time. I've known a lot of people that have
gotten seriously, seriously smashed - and the next day they'll wake up and we'll be like "Man! I can't believe you almost committed suicide last
night! How you feeling?" and then it's "I did what?". They'll remember most of the rest of the night - but there'll be moments that they just
I've been smashed a few times (not many, I'm not that kind of person) and I've been high a few times (maybe 5 or 6 times), and whilst I remember
MOST of what I did, I can't remember it all. I remember, shortly after I first joined this board I got a bit high. I then looked at some television
static and I could've sworn that there were symbols and numbers and words in the static! Thankfully, the left side of my brain took hold again and
went "Alright genius, if there's writing there, then why does it stay the same when you look at it, but when you turn away and then look back it's
different? How about it's an optical illusion numb-nuts?". And there's other things that I can only BARELY remember (like how I was able to make a
full meal, and then wash and rinse everything afterwards, is beyond me - although I somewhat remember doing it, and a bit less remember eating it).
So yeah, alcohol and drugs will do these things to you. It's not "evil energies" taking hold of you, and it's not hypnotism (remember, you can
only be hypnotized into doing something you either already want to do, or which you don't care if you do - you won't kill someone you love if
you're hypnotized) - it's that you're smashed, your brain has been fried, neurons aren't firing right, and you're running on emotional and
So, yeah, call the number. There's a good chance you just talked into an answering machine for 3 and half minutes, spilling some sadness or
something. If it was an actual person, then they can tell you what it is. No, mend-bending aliens and creepy government officials won't hypnotically
force you to do things you don't want to.
You probably woke up with blood and a trashed room because you and your drunk friends were having some fun, someone lost their balance (probably you),
smashed some things up, cut yourself - and you didn't do anything about the wound (because you were too drunk to notice - your pain receptors numb
with alcohol and other endorphins).
And as other people have said, yeah, cut back on your drinking. I knew a guy named Pascal, and his brother, and they said that getting "drunk" meant
that they pass out. They had a whole level-system for levels of intoxication. Sure there are levels of drunkeness - but they're all part of being
In my family, we drink a LOT (hey, I'm Italian - we have a bottle of wine a day at LEAST). But we realize that getting totally plastered, it's not
that great, especially when you're throwing up afterwards. We work ourselves up to a point, and we know when to say no. Once you've worked yourself
up into drunkness, you only need a quarter of the amount you've been drinking in order to keep yourself there.
Have a good night man, and be careful, and Deny Ignorance - don't accept rampant skepticism, nor ramptant conspiratism. Find the middle path.
