The Doppelgänger

fuckyeahnightmares:

All my life I have been very attuned to the paranormal/spiritual. I’ve had a hand full of memorable experiences since I was a toddler and this would be my clearest memory of anything to do with the paranormal. It was in Colorado. At the time, I was most likely 7 years old or so. I was sleeping over at my best friend’s house, like I had done many of times before. It was around 8’o’clock, the house was still bustling with my friend’s mom watching tv, all lights on and other family members hanging around the kitchen. I was never afraid in this house and I never saw anything of the paranormal sort before. My friend and I decided to play some hide and seek. I started out as the seeker and my friend went off to find a place to hide. The house wasn’t very big so there were very few places to hide. The only spaces we could play in was the living room and the hallway that led to a bathroom, and two bedrooms. As I was counting down I heard my friend giggle in the direction of the hallway. I started off going down the hallway checking the bathroom. Once again, I heard an even clearer giggle in my friend’s bedroom that was at the end of the hallway. I went into the bedroom and heard the same giggle underneath the bunkbed. Fyi, the room is a mess and the floor was covered in toys, so it took a little effort to finally get a good look underneath the bed. I was on my hands and knees pushing a few things out of the way and then I saw my friend laying there…but it then it wasn’t her, because at that moment her skin turned pale blue and her eyes sank into black empty sockets. Whatever it was, lurched its head and hands towards me while opening its black mouth unnaturally wide, screeching. I immediately ran out of the room, back to the living room. I could still hear its screech as I ran away. I was so shocked that I didn’t scream or cry. Shortly after, my friend came out of a cabinet/closet in the hallway because she waited long enough. The cabinet was at the beginning of the hallway, in other words, the opposite side of where I heard those giggles and saw what I saw. It was so clear that I remember its quick jerky movements, the blueish green veins around its eye sockets and the sound of its screaming even now. It was so real. I’ve never seen it since and I’ve never told my friend.

FYNK James: 8/10 Giggling is a tell-tale sign of spookiness! Thanks for sharing the scares!

Hey everyone.. sorry I’ve been MIA the last few days. On Saturday morning my girlfriend of…

Hey everyone.. sorry I’ve been MIA the last few days. On Saturday morning my girlfriend of almost 5 years unexpectedly lost her father; a man who was loved and admired not only by his friends and family, but the community at large. Everyone in town knew my girlfriend’s father, Gil, and he was everyone’s friend. Going anywhere in town with Gil, he always had to stop and talk to someone. He knew everyone in our small town, and he was the kind of person who would give the shirt off his back to anyone who needed it. I can’t even count the number of people whose lives this man’s kindness and generosity has touched over the years, nor the number of people who called him “dad.” This man welcomed me into his family right from the beginning, and I am so thankful for the short amount of time I got to spend with him. He loved his kids, his family, his two grandchildren, and playing metal guitar with his band. He was only 51 years old…

So it’s with a heavy heart that I say goodbye to a great man and a great friend. Unfortunately this also means I will not be checking my facebook/twitter and other social media accounts very much while our family is going through the grieving process, and preparing the final arrangements for our good friend, Gil.

Thank you all for your support and understanding.
-Brian

It’s Better this Way

by cnkguy
It’s Better this Way

Anon submitted:

Please post this anonymously if possible. I haven’t told anyone about this because it unsettles me to even think about it & I’m not completely certain I wasn’t just dreaming (or experiencing sleep paralysis, which seems likelier) but here it goes.

I woke up one morning, as I often do, to my boyfriend shuffling around the room as he prepared to leave for work. It was early & I was sleepy, but I prefer to stay awake at least long enough to say goodbye before he heads off.

After gathering his jacket & shoes, he sat on the edge of the bed and tucked the blanket around me. “Alright, I’m leaving now,” he said before kissing my forehead & nose as always. “See you later.”

I mumbled my goodbye & watched, bleary-eyed & squinting hard (I wasn’t wearing my contacts), as he left.

Some time later, I awoke to the sound of his familiar shuffle around the room. I immediately noticed how the lighting had (somehow?) changed from the bright, clear sunlight of a cloudless day to a warm, heavy glow. It was as if the entire room was washed in a hazy burnt orange filter. I don’t know if that makes any sense to anyone, but I distinctly remember how dense the light felt, how strange & orange everything was.

Being half-awake, I must have decided it was due to the fact that I had just woken up & I hadn’t put my contacts in yet.

I realized that my boyfriend had returned, perhaps because he’d forgotten something. I greeted him, but kept my eyes closed because he’d be gone again soon & I was still going to get an hour or two of rest.

After a few minutes he made his way to the window on wall furthest from the door & began pulling the heavy curtains closed. I told him to leave them open because I’m afraid of the dark & they block out most of the sunlight even during the middle of the day. I didn’t want to be alone in the dimly-lit room when he left again for work.

“It’s better this way,” he said.

Apparently the absurdity of that statement & the fact that he was saying it to me didn’t register then because I didn’t think anything of it in that moment. “Please don’t close them,” I told him. “You know I’m afraid of the dark.”

“It’s better this way,” he said again as one side of the curtain dropped. The room got a little darker. “It’s better this way.”

That’s when the feeling of unease finally hit me. My eyes snapped open & they immediately landed on whoever? whatever? it was, crouched right next to the bed. It resembled my boyfriend in stature, but its limbs were far too long & it didn’t have hair or eyebrows. Its skin sagged on its face, as if it was melting off its frame.

It was bent over just slightly, long hands on its jutting knees, staring at me with a wide, twitching grin. Its face was a few centimeters from mine, distorted as if I was looking at it through a fishbowl, & its jaw was clenched so hard I could hear its teeth grinding against each other.

I know my mouth dropped open because I remember the big exhale of air that comes with a scream, but no sound came out. I strained so hard that my lungs felt like they were collapsing, but, again, no sound. I couldn’t move my body, couldn’t even close my eyes to stop seeing it.

I panicked then, started hyperventilating & passed out.

When I came to, both curtains were drawn. I practically flung myself off the bed, grabbed my things & bolted for the door. Needless to say, I make sure I’m fully awake when my boyfriend leaves now & I don’t stay in the house alone.

James: 8/10 I’m pretty sure this was sleep paralysis but that is super vivid and unsettling, thank you! I looked up if curtains drawn means closed or open and it means both, so I guess we’ll never know if some entity closed the blinds or if they were already open.

1. Brazilian Joao Maria de Souza was killed in 2013 when a cow fell through his roof onto him as he slept.

2. Clement Vallandigham, a 19th century US lawyer, accidentally shot himself dead while defending a murder suspect – because he was trying to demonstrate that a supposed victim could have accidentally shot himself dead. (It worked, because his client was acquitted.)

10. US congressman Michael F. Farley died in 1921 as a result of shaving – because his shaving brush was infected with anthrax.

24. General John Sedgwick was killed by a sniper in the American Civil War shortly after uttering the words “They couldn’t hit an elephant at this distance.” (Contrary to popular belief, though, they weren’t his last words. They were his second-last. His last words were agreeing that dodging was in fact a good idea.)

25. Health fanatic Basil Brown managed to kill himself by drinking a gallon of carrot juice a day, in the belief it would make him healthy.

26. In 1992, Greg Austin Gingrich died in the Grand Canyon after jokingly pretending to fall to his death, then losing his footing and actually falling to his death.

27. Queen Sunanda Kumariratana of Siam (now Thailand) drowned in 1880 in full view of many of her subjects – because they were forbidden to touch her, so couldn’t rescue her.

Wayne Hartung Sr

On July 31, 2015, there was a blue moon, which means that there were two full moons in one month. This is an event that happens about once every three years.On that night in Pensacola, Florida, 77-year-old Voncile Smith and her sons, 49-year-old Richard Thomas Smith and 47-year-old John William Smith, were murdered in their home. They had been beaten with a claw-tooth hammer and had their throats slit. Richard Thomas had also been shot in the head.At the time, the police said that the bodies were positioned in such a way that it looked like they were used in some type of ritual. They later corrected themselves and said that the bodies were found in different rooms.

In October 2015, the police arrested Wayne Hartung Sr., the half brother of the victims. At the press conference, the sheriff said that a possible motive for the murder was witchcraft.It was committed during the blue moon, which the sheriff believed to be connected to Wicca. Also, Hartung’s family said that he loosely practiced Wicca and kept a book about it in his office. As of March 2016, Hartung is awaiting trial.
