hi. i've been lurking for years and had an old account but forgot the pw. i can't post a thread because i only have four posts.. anyways.. i want to
share an experience that happened to my friend and i about 6 years ago, i'm 23 now, so is he.
i met a girl on myspace, picked her up with my friend, and met two other friends at my friend's grandma's unoccupied house. to this day i don't
remember where it is.. i live in LA county and it was some where off the freeway. off the 5 south.. i wasn't driving or had my license at the time,
my friend was. we hung out in the garage of this house. afterwards we decided to go home and part ways, we dropped off the girl i met on myspace and
were on our way to my friend's house.. it was around 1 am at this time. our 2 friends who we left at the house because they drove separately called
us and said they couldn't find their keys.. they searched extensively to no avail. so we had no choice but to pick them up but had to check in with
my friend's mom because we were under age at the time and let them know. so we did and went on our way to pick up our friends.. by this time it was
almost 2 am.. the destination was about 30-40 minutes away.
here's where the strange thing happens.. looking back, i remember it was completely silent.. no other car in sight.. no nothing.. and obviously this
is most likely due to the fact it was almost 2 am.. but looking back it's just something i remember.. it was eerily silent in retrospect.
anyways, the exit on the freeway showed up, i remember vividly us taking the exit, going up a slight hill and pulling up to an intersection stop light
right off the freeway ramp. to the left was where the freeway kept going, and beyond there were some mountains miles and miles away.. so we were at
this stop light.. thinking nothing of anything.. just waiting for it to turn green.
all the sudden, a humongous flash happened.. like someone built a thousand foot papparazi camera and snapped a shot of us in the car. the flash
enveloped everyting in my vision, and was as close as close can be. the flash made everything go blank for a split second like a normal camera flash
would, but it was extremely bright and close. looking back, it seems like the flash came from the top left corner of my vision, but when it happened
it was everywhere at once.
it all lasted a split second. but with the huge flash was a simultaneous "BOOM" FEELING that we both felt. like being close to a really loud bass
speaker at a club. it happened simultaneously with the flash and also lasted a split second. just imagine a large bass noise you feel in your chest.
the weird thing is.. all within this split second, both me and my friend reacted the EXACT same. we both clutched our chests and yelled out OH MY
GOD.. or OH.. i can't remember quite, but all i know is at the exact time of the flash and feeling we both started panicking and yelling,
automatically followed by a "DID YOU JUST SEE THAT, DID YOU FEEL THAT!?!" it was all so freaking strange. to this day i would even brush it off if
it wasn't for the fact how we both reacted at the same time feeling/seeing the same thing at this stop light completely void of all life.
god i will never find out what that was. so inexplicable.. i just dont understand and we still talk about it to this day. he will tell you the same
thing i did. we reacted and panicked at the same time.
on this site i managed to come across two threads of people experiencing some large flash.. so i'm really wondering if there's any correlation. i
don't remember if i checked the time but i don't think i checked.. i think we were way too flustered and so absolutely frightened that we didn't
check if there was a time slip or anything.
we then proceeded to pick up our friends and told them what happened. i will never forget what happened. i dont know what it was. and i dont think i
ever will.. if anyone has any information on similar experiences please inform me, thank you
