You never did tell me your stories....
Gold medals aren't really made of gold. They're made of sweat, determination, and a hard-to-find alloy called guts.
You are such an a-hole sometimes!!! I think I love you!
Totally forgot about that! You gonna still be posting around 10:30 tonight? I'll post them when I get home.

I really wasnt trying to be, he knows what I am talking about,
Haha I won't lie, my stories are pretty damn good. If you can give me a logical explanation for any of them, it'd be greatly appreciated :) I'll share them tonight.
Hahaha Wasn't high or drunk either of the times. But one of the times freaked me out enough that I took about 5 straight shots afterwards just to calm my damn nerves.
Alright, so here we go.
Story 1: This is kinda 3 stories, all combined into one. That'll make more sense when I'm done. So when my fam first moved to Iowa, we had a little 3 bedroom house in CR. One night my mom and dad were in bed (no pics) and my dad was asleep, but my mom couldn't sleep. She was laying there, and she saw a little dark shadow walk by her door. The shadow came from the left, which is where my bedroom was. I used to sleep walk as a kid, so she figured I was sleep walking. She walked out into the living room, and didn't see me. So she went into my sisters room next, and she was in there fast asleep. So my mom walks into my room, and I'll be damned if I'm not asleep in there too. So the next day she told my dad about it, and he started giving her a hard time about the "little troll man" that wanders around our house. Needless to say, he didn't believe her. Well about 2 weeks later, they're talking in bed because neither of them could sleep, and they both see the same shadow walk out of my room, and down the hallway. They get up, both my sister and I are still asleep. My dad was a HUGE skeptic and openly admits, there was absolutely no way that what he saw wasn't a ghost. It had shoulders, a neck, a head, and all 4 limbs, so it wasn't just a shadow or anything. Well, on Easter Eve one night, still in the same house, I woke up to go to the bathroom, and I saw a little shadowy guy walking around in the living room. I was young enough, I honestly thought it was the Easter bunny. So the next morning I told my parents that I was taller than the Easter Bunny. They had no idea what I was talking about until I told them that I saw someone in the living room that night when I went to the bathroom/csb #1
I believe it was 2 years ago, maybe 3? It was the night of the Iowa vs Arizona football game, at Arizona when we lost. My ex gf's parents were out of town visiting her little sis at Mizzou, No pics of ex or sis. So her parents asked us to house/dog sit while they were gone. Her parents live in a wooded area, and it really is kinda creepy at night, but beautiful during the day. So that night, we're sitting on the couch, she's laying down sleeping, and I'm watching some ftball game that was on before the Iowa game. So directly above the living room, is her parents bedroom. And there have been multiple times when we'd be alone in her parents house, and clear as day you could hear footsteps going from one side of her parents room to the other. There is no doubt in my mind they were footsteps, it was unreal. That's not this story though. So she's asleep, I'm awake and sober. All the sudden, there's a HUGE thump upstairs in her parents room. HUGE. It sounded like a huge guy jumped up, and then stomped both feet on the floor as hard as possible. Their dog, a pretty large hunting dog, got up and immediately started barking, and ran to the foot of the staircase, barking while he's looking upstairs. My adrenaline starts pumping hardcore. I honestly thought someone had just broken into the 2nd story of their house. That was my first thought. So I grabbed a big ass knife, and went upstairs. The dog wouldn't even go with me. She just stayed at the base of the stairs, whining as I walked up. I get up there, and absolutely nothing had changed. Nothing was on the floor, nothing looked out of place. It was incredibly weird. I literally have no explanation for it. The sound came from directly above me on the floor. It was not outside. Needless to say I came back downstairs and slammed some shots/csb#2
I got one for you. Other day I am pooping, I finish and go to wipe and I am not making this up, but there was no poop on the TP, it was like I didn't go at all
Once again, takes place at my ex gfs parents house. I was there real late one night, just "hanging out" in her bedroom. She still lived at home at the time because she was in radiology school in CR. I left sometime around 3am to head home. Her parents have a hardwood floor in their kitchen and dining room. I was walking down the stairs to get to the front door, and I hear steps on the floor. They were absolutely footsteps, I have no doubt about it. I get to the bottom, and turn on the kitchen light, and there's nobody in there. I figured it was her dad because he used to stay up really late, but he was asleep on the couch. So I don't think anything of it, just that it's kinda weird. About 5 minutes after I left, my ex calls me, and tells me that she's creeped out because she can hear someone walking around downstairs, but she can hear both her mom snoring, and her dad snoring in the separate rooms so she knew it wasn't one of them. Plus they always put their dog in the laundry room at night. I asked her if she wanted me to come back, and didn't say a word about what I heard on my way out. She said no, and that it would all be alright, but she was just a little creeped out. Literally right after she told me that, her computer turned on, and started playing music. I was on the phone with her while it happened. Now obviously electronics can do weird stuff sometimes, so I didn't think much of it, but it was a strange coincidence. I talked to her for a few more mins, and she thought she was okay to try and sleep. I get a call about 10 mins later, and she's freaking out. She could still hear her parents snoring, but could hear someone continuously walking by her bedroom door. She called her mom from her room, her mom turned on the lights, and she slept with her mom for the night/csb 3.
So Brad, take those stories for what they're worth, but there's not a whole lot of ways to explain those weird ass situations.
The ol phantom poop. Love those.
I'm always afraid to trust them
No cant say I got anything for an explanation. Great stories too
Nothing like that ever happened to me so I still do not believe in ghosts. Oh, and shame on the no pics
Haha thank you, I'm always told I'm a decent story teller.
Damn freeky csb's mclovin.
I believe in ghosts, ufos and all that ish.
I had a friend whose roommate stopped by the black angel in IC. Not sure what he did, but they both started hearing noises like cupboards slamming at night, and i guess his roommate was seeing short figures.
At my old gig at the hospital basement, there were certain areas where it felt like i was being followed from behind. I have heard stories from other people about some of the things they would see also.
As far as UFO's.....one morning i was delivering papers and i was looking at the sky watching what i thought eas a plane. As i kept watching it, i saw the aircraft flying in a pattern that i don't think a plane could make (a V shaped pattern). I watched it until it decided yo straighten out and fly straight.
My wife and I have always wanted to believe in stuff like that, but neither of us have had any experiences until this past May in Key West (a place that should be haunted, if any place could be). We were having a late dinner at a restaurant near the marina, sitting at a table that was along the water on the outside of the building, There was one empty table behind me, then us, then a couple of other empty tables. It was close to 9:00, there was very little breeze where were sitting and we were not drunk. The waitress brought us our check and it was in one of those plastic folding covers. I had put my credit card in the little slot and had stood it up on the table for her to see. All of a sudden, there was the distinct noise of a piece of silverware being dropped onto the table behind us. As we turned to look, the credit card folder was knocked off of the table into the empty chair next to it. It did not just fall over - it flew into the chair like somebody slapped it off of the table - and when I tried to recreate it, there was no way it could happen unless you slapped it with some force. As for the noise behind us, there was nobody there, had been nobody there and I searched all around and couldn't find anything that could have made that noise. When I tried it with a piece of my silverware, it was the exact sound we heard. It was like something made a noise behind us, then moved past our table and slapped the folder off of it. It kind of weirds us out to this day.
I'm just saying.............
