I think my house might be haunted by my cocker spaniel Barney, who died several years ago. I sometimes hear him shake his ears and trot down the hallway at night.

That's ok, though. I figure he's just watching over us. And that's fine with me.

I've told this one before (and in last nite's short lived one) in any event here it goes:

I work in an old mansion in Indianapolis that is said to be haunted. The house was built in 1916 for a wealthy bank President who would eventually go bankrupt. In any event, his wife suffered from nervous ticks (probably schizophrenia) and one night decided she could no longer go on with life anymore, and drank Prussian acid (poison) and committed suicide. Her mother also was living in the house at the time, came in at some point, and saw her daughter lying dead, and also drank of the poison and died. Some versions of the story have a nurse giving her the poison on accident not realizing it would kill her. Supposedly the ghosts of these two women haunt the building to this day.

I have been working here for 2.5 years and I lived in the place for about 2. I never really experienced anything other than noises that can be attributed to an old building with a boiler and hardwood floors. Some of the other people who lived here at the same time though have reported hearing blood curdling screams, figures standing over them in the bedroom, and even footsteps when no one else was in the house. There is also a "haunted photograph" that we have hanging in one of our museum areas. The most interesting story I heard though was from someone who lived here 30 years ago when the building was used as part of a school. Her bedroom was in part of the "suicide suite" and looked out on to a deck. Well, she woke up one winter night to see a series of footprints that had been walking or pacing in the middle of the snow covered deck. Nothing was leading to or away from the windows, but rather simply in the middle.

I personally do not believe in ghosts, and maybe that is why I have yet to experience anything. I'll be honest though, sometimes the sheer size of the place is creepy and walking around at night when you are the only person here is not my idea of fun.

ksparrothd: meg12279: oh, and same house, a few months before, the hub and i spent the night. usually we sleep on the couch, but for some reason we were in their spare room. I had horrible, very vivid nightmares about being raped the whole night. when i woke up at six, i just got up and went downstairs and cleaned up, i was too freaked out to go back to sleep.

when i told my friends why i was up so early, the guy went pale. apparently his high school girlfriend had spent the night in the room years before and had the same dreams, and would never go back in that roon.

Did you wake up with ghost crusties on you? Hopefully not on the face.


luckily, no. had i gotten pregnant, that would have been an awkward conversation.

Many years ago, about 2 months before a return trip to Vienna Austria to visit and see some friends, I had an incredibly vividl dream about one of my math professors. He was in a hospital bed, reaching out to me, saying something that to this day I still don't know..

Well fast-forward to my trip.. I was visiting with another teacher, and he mentioned out of the blue that the math professor had died of cancer a couple months back.

I had no idea he was even sick. I hadn't had any contact with anyone else who would have known either, which makes all that much more creepy.

I was floored. Had I been standing I probably would have fallen down.

It still gives me chills 20+ years later.

A man went to a hotel and walked up to the front desk to check in. The woman at the desk gave him his key and told him that on the way to his room, there was a door with no number that was locked and no one was allowed in there. Especially no one should look inside the room, under any circumstances. So he followed the instructions of the woman at the front desk, going straight to his room, and going to bed.

The next night his curiosity would not leave him alone about the room with no number on the door. He walked down the hall to the door and tried the handle. Sure enough it was locked. He bent down and looked through the wide keyhole. Cold air passed through it, chilling his eye. What he saw was a hotel bedroom, like his, and in the corner was a woman whose skin was completely white. She was leaning her head against the wall, facing away from the door. He stared in confusion for a while. He almost knocked on the door, out of curiosity, but decided not to.

He crept away from the door and walked back to his room. The next day, he returned to the door and looked through the wide keyhole. This time, all he saw was redness. He couldn't make anything out besides a distinct red color, unmoving. Perhaps the inhabitants of the room knew he was spying the night before, and had blocked the keyhole with something red.

At this point he decided to consult the woman at the front desk for more information. She sighed and said, "Did you look through the keyhole?" The man told her that he had and she said, "Well, I might as well tell you the story. A long time ago, a man murdered his wife in that room, and her ghost haunts it. But these people were not ordinary. They were white all over, except for their eyes, which were red."

-Meh. I thought it was good

I requested an advanced ballot by mail
Received said ballot
Used a pen that bled through the ballot
Requested a second advanced ballot by mail
Received a god damn PROVISIONAL ballot

Currently trying to contact the Sec of State, Election office, etc.

After 2 years of all this bullshiat, the ads, the phone calls, the meaningless bickering with people. I may be robbed of my vote because of a god damn pen.

Closest I have. So my wife and bought the house we are in now a couple of years ago. The house is about 40 years old and the guy we bought it from was the only owner. His wife had died in the 70s and he had been a widower since then and his family had put him in a home and he died there. Anyway so we are moving in and I walk towards the master bedroom. The door to the master bedroom is on the N. with the bed facing W. I get to the door and right as I enter the room a small lamp on the bedside table (on the side of the bed closest to me) literally slid about four inches. My mouth dropped and I stared and the hairs on my arm stood up. I yelled my wife's name and I hear "I'm right here" from under the bed. My wife was on the other side of the bed underneath running an extension cord from the lamp that had moved to a plug. She looked at me and saw I had turned white.

/She still makes fun of me.

You wanna hear something really scary?

Once I met a person who attributed unexplained noises or events to "supernatural" or "paranormal" entities. This person believed that ghosts were real and that haunted houses existed, despite centuries of science and rational thinking. If something couldn't be explained immediately, it was obviously due to something from the "other world".

Pretty scary, huh...

I don't have a ghost story, but about ten years ago, I was coming home from a road trip and stopped at a small motel in Gallup, New Mexico. It was a little cheap drive-in motel like several I had stayed at the week before, but there was something about the room that just left me feeling completely uneasy. I felt like I was being watched every single second I was in the room. I went out to a movie and came back but didn't feel like I was alone. But something in that room felt...malicious. I tried to sleep in the room, but couldn't. I felt like I was going to be attacked, even though nobody was there.

I woke up in a panic at 3AM, threw my bag into the back of the car and sped out of Gallup as fast as I could. I've never been back since.
