    Its a Small Army...

    When I deployed to iraq, I moved into my own room(rare to have over there). The previous occupant, who had finished his deployment and gone home, had left a few of their belongings in a drawer.  All of them labeled Stahlnaker. Well a few days into being there, I learned that...

    Flick Off, Street Light

    Whenever I'm driving at the dead of night or the early morning before daybreak, at least one street light would turn off (or sometimes on) when I drive by within 15 feet of its presence. Literally, it happens on a regular basis whether in remote or urban areas. On the streets...

    Several, which I'd love an explanation for.

    When I was young, in school assembly, two friends each side of me, both sharing the same first name as myself, both fainted at the same time, leaving me in an empty space. Close dates with death, one I should have been swept out to sea after a huge wave engulfed me, when it...

    First, I have to say

    that I don't believe in ghosts, I am curious about the paranormal and have had strange experiences in the past, but nothing like what happened to me a few days ago. And even though I can't explain this story, I am sure that there's a rational explanation. I just don't know what...

    I think the strangest thing

    that has happened to me is this: long ago, when I was a teenager, I was casually reading a magazine in which someone described having a heart attack: I started to feel a pressure weighing down on my own chest, and an unpleasant sleepy feeling. I wondered if I was having a heart...

    Pre-universal Existance
