I've experienced many phantom-smells that I couldn't find a cause for, some were like sulfur, others like the most beautiful flowers ever. For awhile I thought I might've had a stroke, but several doctors visits and an MRI haven't indicated anything to back that theory up.
About feeling watched, you may get a kick of this book called "The Sense of Being Stared At: And Other Aspects of the Extended Mind" by Rupert Sheldrake. People know when they are being watched and i'm reminded of a telescope experiment Sheldrake did. He set up a telescope and camera aimed towards a busy street in front of a window and taped the passerbys. While the telescope was left unattended, the people below just went about their day completely oblivious to the fact that the were taped. However, once a person was behind the telescope actively viewing the people below, a vast majority of the passerbys looked in the directly into the window where the scope was and subsequently right into the camera. They sensed something was up and tried to locate the cause. Fascinating stuff.

Just kidding. Sounds like The Wailey House case.

cool! I'll look for the book, thanks! I've been stared at my whole life. I truly felt like I was in the Truman Show. No matter where I go, I look up and whole tables are staring. The time I noticed it most was when I was having lunch in a Chinese place near our military base. A group of about 10 military guys were in there eating. I was looking out the window and eating, just thinking about some of the crazy stuff I've experienced in my life and I had a creepy feeling of being stared at. (I know it now because it happens so often) One of the military guys was burning a hole in me staring. I ignored it. Felt it again and this time 3 were staring directly at me, obvious. They started turning to each other and looking like some kind of weird frickin' alien movie (not kidding) and then without words being said back and forth, they all turned and looked at me. I swear they were using telepathy! (I'm telepathic, too, so that could have been it) Village of the damn military anyone? This is the kind of crap I have experienced.
