So, after reading another thread on here, I decided to start one of my own about some anomalous events that occured to me in the past. I have posted
about a few of them, but never put them together, and I figured the skunk works would be the place. So, to begin, here is a rundown of the events:
November '99 - I get a call from my girlfriend, who is at my house. She is terrified, crying, begging me to come home. She says there are strange
noises, and various electronics keep turning themselves off and on. I go home, a little pissed off, because it sounds really stupid, and the girl in
question had always seemed a little nutty to me, anyways. I get home, and she is huddled in a corner, with a knife. I ask her a few questions, and
eventually, we come around to the TV and VCR, which she claimed had been a couple of the offending devices. I walk over towards them, to turn them on
and assure her they are functioning properly. When I am about two feet away, they turned on. I backed away, and they turned back off. I was like,
ok...a little strange. I move back towards them, and I hear my computer turn on, which was in my bedroom at the end of the hall. By now, I'm a little
pissed about it all, and so I head down the hall. I see the bedroom light is on now, too. I get about halfway down the hall, and they both shut off.
So I'm a little creeped. Then the front door, which was down the hall by the bedroom door, swing open violently, but I don't see anyone there. I go
down the hall and shut the door, and then waited to see if anything else would happen. Nothing did, and that was the end of that event.
December 99 - I see a strange ball of greenish light fly over the area where I lived. This occured at dusk, as I was turning onto my road, on my way
home from work. Approx two weeks later, I begin recieving unusual messages on my answering machine. The calls would last in duration from a few
minutes to one that lasted over half an hour. These messages consisted of some heavy breathing, and what sounded like an animal, perhaps a dog, being
beated and howling in pain...never anything more or less...the calls would come in at various times, yet never once while I was home.
January 00 - Late january, I leave work, and instead of going straight home, as I almost always did, I went to the closest mall, which was about 30
mins away...on my way back home from said mall, I sstop back in where I work, to pick up a couple of things. One of my managers there calls me over,
and tells me that there had been a caller looking for me. The person who called said they were from the state police (I think it was state, either
state or county sherriff) and that they were looking for me. They also stated that they had already been to my house, and wanted to know if my manager
had any idea where I might be found. Well, I was a little weirded out on that, because I was a real do good homebody then, so I couldn't imagine why
the police would be looking for me. So I head home. It had snowed during the day, so I could see the tracks of boots that had gone to my door. They
had, in fact, gone inside. (the lock on my door was broken at that time.) I could also see that they had left. I went inside, and being the good boy I
was, I called the state dispatch to see if I could find out why they might have been looking for me. After talking to three different people, they all
tell me that there is no record of anything involving me, and that if there had been, they would know. Thus, it seems, whoever it was that had called,
and gone to my house, was not actually a police officer.
Things seemed to calm down for a bit, after this period. The strange events resumed the next winter.
November 00 - The "wrong number" phone calls begin. By this time, I have caller ID. I begin to recieved 3-4 wrong number phone calls a day. To a
number, keep in mind, that had been at that address for 14 years. The callers ask for various people. Occasionally, some of them are extremely
bizzare. One was even a tape recorded conversation between an elderly lady and another person, about how she was dying. There didnt seem to be any
reason for this, that I could figure, but this continued for almost six months.
february 01 - I am making dinner, talking on the phone to a friend. Suddenly, very loudly, an inhuman sounding voice says "Human." It was loud
enough that my friend I was talking to heard it as well. I checked the TV, computer, etc, but they were all off. Nothing else occured, and I have no
idea where that might have come from.
April 01 - I am woken up in the night by the same voice as about, saying "you're dead." I have never been sure whether to attribute this to an odd
have away half dreaming state, or what.
Again, the summer is calm...strangeness resumes in September...
September 01 - On the 10th, I come down with a mystery illness. I felt fine in the morning, went to work, but within 30 mins, I could no longer stand,
and nearly lost consciousness. I turned incredibly pale (which is a feat for me, as I am rather olive-skinned, you could say) and weak, but otherwise
I felt fine. After about 20 mins of sitting, I managed to leave work and go to a doctor. The doctor could find nothing wrong with me, he said, and had
no idea what it might be. He took some blood samples, etc, and sent me home to rest, and said if I felt close to losing consciousness again, get to
the hospital. I went home, and slept until the next morning. Of course, well all know what happened sept 11th. On the 12th, the wrong number plague
resumed, but much increased. I began to recieve 10-15 wrong numbers a day. Also on the 12th, I was followed on my drive home from work. I lived in a
very out of the way place, and so I found it odd when someone had followed me my entire route home. So instead of turning down the road I lived on, I
continued past, looped back around, and drove through three of the surrounding towns. The car following me never left. Finally I decided "the hell
with it" and went home...the car behind me followed me to the end of the road I lived on, which was a private road. After I turned down it, the car
stopped at the end of the road, then turned around and pulled out.
December 01 - Someone broke into my house, and got on my computer. I wasn't able to figure out what they did, beyond accessing my email. Various
items on my desk had been moved around, and the books on my bookcase had been moved around. Nothing was missing.
June 02 - My house is broken into again. Again, things were moved around, and my computer had been used. However, this time, someone had accessed not
only my email, but messenger programs as well, and somehow had editing my message histories, removing some items and adding others. (I know a bit
about computers, but no idea how one would do this?) I am not sure what else, if anything, was done. I did find out about two weeks later, a few of
the falsified message histories had actually been printed, because they were mailed to my girlfriend at the time. What they contained were messages
that made it appear I was cheating on said girlfriend. This whole situation was really bizzare. There were several other strange points revolving
around seperating this girl and I. I was followed, threatened by various anonymous means, and similar events that I'd rather not disclose. Again, had
someone claiming to be a
police officer call looking for me. Again, it was not actually a police officer.
These events stretched into october of 02.
November 02 - This was the month of the random pull-overs. I was stopped six times in two weeks by state police, for no stated reason. They did the
routine license, insurance, registration. They would shine flashlights in the car windows, and once searched my car. Never a single time did they say
why they stopped me. Twice I was asked why I was out driving. Eventually, after about 30-45 mins each stop, they let me go.
Also of note, another UFO sighting this month, again right over the area where i lived.
Jan '03 - I wake up in the middle of the night, twice in this month, with every light in the house on, and the desk lamped turned to shine directly
in my face as I sleep. And, of course, all the lights had been off when I went to sleep. (edit) I meant to put this in the original, but forgot to,
because I was trying to figure out exactly when it happened, and don't remember precisely. In any case, during the winter of '03, the most
terrifying thing to ever happen to me, occured. It was about 1230am, and I had just turned out my light, and turned to face the wall to go to sleep.
Immediately after that, someone sat on my bed. Like you would if you were to sit beside a person laying on a bed, and lean over and look at them. I
could feel their back against mine. The house was locked, windows locked, and I had arranged it so that whenever my door opened, it made a loud noise.
(Was getting paranoid) So I don't see how anyone came in. And I don't know who it could have been. No one else had a key to the lock, and I kept it
locked at all times, by this point. I was afraid to move, or to look. I didn't know if the person might have a malicous intent, and, in the dark, I
figured if I moved and let them know I realized they were there, and they did have a bad intent, I would be at a real disadvantage. So I just lay very
still, and after half an hour, they got up. I never heard anyone leave. About half an hour after that, I finally turned the light on and checked the
doors, windows, etc, and made sure all the rooms were empty. Everything checked out... (/edit)
Feb '03 - A couple of strange occurances. First one, kinda minor. It was approx 930 at night, I way laying in bed, reading a book. Suddenly the
floor lamp next to my bed shook violently, then stopped just as suddenly. That was it. About two weeks later, said lamp randomly burst into flame,
without even being turned on. Second one, was again around 930pm, and again I was laying in bed reading. A common habit of mine. Next thing I know, I
am sitting up in bed...and it is 330 am...one of my contacts is missing, and the eye missing the contact is very irritated. Im totally confused. I
can't figure out what happened to my contact, so I go looking at my eye in the mirror, cant find it off the the side, or anything. Eventually, I give
up, and then I found it. Laying in the book I had been reading. The book that was laying in the floor, next to the bed when I "came to."
March '03 - Another UFO sighting, this one a little more intense. It was witnessed by me and an ex-girlfriend. We pulled over in a field to look at
it, and it, eventually, flew directly over us. This was, needless to say, the last time said girl came anywhere near my house. (the sighting occured
in a field only a few hundred feet from my house.) It is also of interest to note that from late 02 until this time, well, a little beyond this time,
there are large portions of my memories just missing. No idea why.
Things calm down signifigantly after this point. In January of '04, I moved to a different town. Two days after I moved, I was followed home. The car
following me pulled into the driveway across the road, a person got out, took a picture of me, got in and drove off...and then things were normal
again, until I moved again, that fall....again, two days after I moved, I was followed home, and this time the person took a picture of the house I
lived in. (that might have been what they were doing the time before, as I was standing in front of the house.) Then they drove off. It was, I think,
the same car even. Since then, I have moved again, but this time, instead of moving instate, I moved across the country...and so far, nothing more has
Now, there are a few events i have left out, for personal reasons, and probably a few I forgot, as well. However, I am curious what anyone might make
of these events? If you have questions, ask...I just find them all to be strange, and wonder if there is any connection between any of them. What do
