I have camped out on/near two civil war battlefields - both scout trips. These sites have high occurrences of paranormal activity. Gettysburg is supposed to be "the most haunted place in America".

I slept pretty well, if I recall correctly.

I dated a girl that went from natural to super for about five grand. I liked natural better but she moved on to richer pastures anyway.

My grandpa gave us a train set for Christmas. We had it set up in the basement.
One day as me and my brothers were heading down the stairs the train started up running.
Turned out he had passed the night before.

As a Christian, my belief in the supernatural is what sustains me. If one professes to believe in Christ, then one believes in angels and demons, God and Satan, Heaven and Hell. It does not get more supernatural than that, does it. I have seen both Christ and Satan at work in my life and the lives of others.

If you're in a relationship with a woman that has that kind of work done, odds are she's not doing it for your benefit. LOL

Okay okay, I'll spill. One time long ago, I was sleeping over at my girlfriends house. There were about 6 of us in the bedroom. Some on the beds, some on the floor and me on a long sleeping couch. It was dark in the house as in all the lights were out dark. Around 1-2am. The couch I was laying on faced the bedroom door, which was open, and beyond that was the long hallway. We were all talking and carrying on, about boys probably and about every 5 minutes or so, something moving in the hallway would catch my eye. The family had no pets and her dad was sleeping downstairs. Finally after the second time I saw it, I watched it and saw the shape of a trenchcoat and a hat but no arms, legs, or head/face. It was darker than dark and it moved up the steps in a fluid motion, down the long hallway, like floating and then over the banister (like it was falling). It was tall and made no noise. Thirty minutes or so passed and I asked the other girls if they happened to see anything in the hallway.

Well all heck broke loose! They all screamed yes and jumped on the bed. We all described exactly the same thing. A figure in a trench coat with a hat but no body parts (that we could see) and that it was doing the same motion over and over. We all had to scream until her dad woke up and turned on the lights.

That was more than 20 some years ago and I still remember it like it was yesterday.

I have been in the room with people close to dying who are obviously seeing and experiencing things that others in the room could not see or hear. I have heard one explanation that those people are so close to death but still alive and they are basically moving between two worlds, the here and the here after. One explanation was that they were seeing and conversing with others who had gone before and were sent back to show them the way to their new home.

I used to have a 21" RCA television....the kind with knobs and a pull button to turn it on. In other words, pre remote controls.
It turned itself on more than once.
