Ok, so we all know skinwalkers in the woods, ghosts in abandoned hotels/houses/apartment complex and alien probing you're mum's anus greentext stories, most of which are fictional. How about you tell some shit that you actually experienced in your daily life which was bazooper creepy?
>father always pisses with the bathroom door open

my rationalized guess: you were used to that situation

>your father replies
you saw the light on, which was only on because someone forgot to turn it off, and when you called for him your brain kinda hallucinated a response automatically even if there wasn't one. a pavlov's dog kinda thing?

I have plenty but one of the spookiest shit is back when I saw something akin to a werewolf or a shapeshifter when I was a kid. Sounds like bullshit but bear with me

>suddenly hear a growl coming from the woods a few steps away from me 
>see what it seems to be a dog but it's so dark I can't even tell what breed it is or if it's even a dog at all, it looked more like a sort of shadow in the form of a dog 
>slowly start to back away in confusion as the "dog" shifted into the shadow of man 
>it kept growling at me but now with a human voice as if he was trying to imitate a dog 
>all the while standing still and shifting between a man and a dog, at one point it seemed like it was both things at once but it kept shifting over and over 
>I kept walking backwards without getting my eyes off of it and I ran to the house once I got far enough from the woods
>look back

of course, logically no one believed me, not even to this day and I never expect people to do so. When I asked around that place had a few bizarre stories but nothing about werewolfs or shit like that 
still, i'm sure it was real but I don't remember being that scared, mostly because my brain was too bussy trying to process what was happening, it's still hard to describe. If I were to describe it, looking at the shifting was like seeing something that distorts and overlaps over itself while still being 2 different things at the same time, really confusing

This is the only paranormal experience I've had outside of creepy sleep paralysis and shadow men.

This happened on the night of the 31st of December going into the new year of 2017. Now, I don't know if you remember but near the end of 2016, there was a lot of discussion over whether we live in a computer simulation. I've never been a full believer but the logic of "if it is possible, then odds are that we are in one" made sense to me as the time as I was not religious. This is important to note as on the night of December 31st 2016 I felt something that I can only compare as a computer reboot. I'll go into details as to what exactly I experienced:

I got home from my New Year's party early at around 10PM (didn't stay long because I didn't really feel like it that year.) I did some 8chan browsing for a bit and then went to bed. Now, I don't know when I woke up, but it was still as dark as it was when I went to bed. Initially, I woke up and was completely lucid, not feeling tired at all and fully aware of my surroundings, however I could not move an inch (I don't remember if I was able to blink or not). Nothing happened for a while, I just thought it was strange I couldn't move, but I've had sleep paralysis in the past so at the moment I just assumed that's what was happening. After a few minutes, I heard a "shut down" sound, not shut down from your computer but more like the sound of a machine powering off with a swoosh, then nothing for maybe 10-15 seconds then I started having a ringing in my hears that increased in intensity over 20 seconds, sounded like the sound you hear when you have tinnitus, but extremely loud. At the same time as the ringing started, progressively my vision started getting brighter and brighter (not the lighting in the room, but more like if you had a low intensity flashlight pointed into your eyes that would ramp up in brightness) until I wasn't able to see anything but white with rectangular shapes moving in a circular pattern in the brightness, if that makes sense. At this point, my heart was racing, and the only thought I remember going through my head was "holy shit, those theories about us living in a computer simulations were real, and they're shutting off the simulation going into 2017. Everyone else on Earth must be going through this right now." Then, the brightness stopped at once, however now it was like I had completely lost my sight, I couldn't see my room anymore. The only thing I could see at this point was those rectangles moving in the circular pattern and I was able to notice they had a blue tint. Eventually this went away too, leaving me with simply seeing nothing. I remember wanting to get out of my bed and move around at this point, but again I had no control over my body. The last thing I remember is remaining in this state which is what I imagine being blind is like. I assume sleep took me after a while.

I woke up the next morning, and the first thing I did was get up and go talk about the experience with my dad (we lived together). However, he hadn't been home from the party until 4 in the morning and barely slept.

I talked about it with a few people shortly after it happened, and no one had felt this. Usually people would ask me if I drank on that night, which I did, and they'd say that's what caused it, however I didn't drink a lot, I was able to drive home just fine.

To this day, I haven't heard about anyone experiencing something like this. The closest would be alien abductions, and while I'm not very knowledgeable on the subject and while it is similar to what people report, as far as I could tell everything happened within my room and I wasn't taken anywhere.

Has anyone on here experienced something like this, or heard about something like this before?

The Holy Father in Heaven is my protector. I've only had this happen once thought, unless I forgot about it if it happened again.
When I was a little kid, I walked into my room and all of a sudden what looked like a skeleton pirate thing popped up from behind the bed and then immediately disappeared as it fully stood up while cackling with an echo.  It stunned me with fear at the time but was important character development for me in that it might've made me less easy to scare as I grew up.
Replies: >>369
Did this skeleton shout "rattle me bones"? If so, I do believe you were frightened by a plastic toy.
>>321 (OP) 
There's a small room - well, more of a niche - in the basement of my parents' place that invariably would make my skin crawl whenever I passed by it. Again, the room itself is nothing impressive - it's barely 16 square feet across, and the only thing inside it was the water pump of the house, as well as various stuff that more or less got dumped there. Old toys, gardening stuff, etc.

At any rate, for the longest time I thought that it was the sound of the pump itself that scared me. Bear in mind it's a fairly old model going back to ... hells if I know. Might as well have been there when the house was first built, and that was back in the 50s. Anyway, I rationalized my fear as somehow stemming from the pump itself. Some sort of infrasound perhaps.

Cue my grandmother (who also lived in the house) passing away, and my parents decided to do a bit of house-cleaning grandma invariably would have objected to. Hey, turns out grandma has been keeping the leg prosthesis of my grandfather boxed away in that room. Nevermind he's died some 30 years before her.

It's obviously not the same as having a literal skeleton in the closet, and I don't know if my grandmother intentionally kept that thing as a memento, or if she simply forgot about it. And while it's not the proverbial skeleton in the closet, I'm no longer sure it was the water pump that gave of the nasty vibe.

I experienced lost time few years ago

>Too late to make it to the store before closing
>Side street was not far from the last intersection I remember being at
I did not feel sleepy or nauseous at all. I did not see any strange lights or similar things, so ayyys ruining my grocery night is probably what happened. I mentioned this to a doctor, got checked, but I had no health problems that could cause this.
Replies: >>425
I recall having a similar experience while driving home on a local highway at night. Not in the sense of lost time, but more in the sense that I drove straight past the exit I was supposed to take before I actually realized where I was and how much time had passed.

Leaving ayys aside, my best guess is that driving in low-traffic situations can be so extremely monotonous that your higher brain functions basically shut down. So your actual consciousness dozes off while your subconsciousness ensures you keep your feet on the pedal and don't cross the line.

None that I can think of, but a few nights ago I awoke at 3:00 AM to the sounds of my door being knocked. My door as in the door to my room. I live alone and I keep that particular door locked out of habit. I didn't hear any more knocking once I was fully awake but I never opened it until hours later. 

This was most likely a somewhat lucid dream consisting of door knocks that woke me up abruptly, and I confused it for real life. Still kind of creepy.

I have a window by my bed, Every month or two, I wake up to a perfectly bright day outside.
>The clock says 2 or 3
>I think that's PM and not AM, and I shoot out of bed, panicked
>Realize my alarms haven't gone off
>By the time I move to the window, the light outside vanishes, and it's night again.
So far this has happened to me three times, and I don't know what could be causing it. When it happened a few nights ago, I managed to get a good look at the window, and it was more like a spotlight than true daylight. My window doesn't point at a highway and there's some distance to the next neighbor.
Nothing else too strange happening so far. I heard a bizarre humming sound when my area had a total power outage recently (late at night, so no one cared) but I wasn't able to get a look at what was making it and all bets are off when the power goes down.
This one is far-fetched even by the standards of /x/, but here goes:

When I still was in elementary school (4th grade, to be exact), our class went on a school trip to a nearby youth hostel. Now, the school trip in itself really was nothing special, and the strange event I want to bring up only occurred on the very last afternoon we spent at the hostels, when everyone was more or less sitting on packed bags and ready to take the bus back home come the next morning.

Now the youth hostel itself was neatly nestled against some densely wooded hills, with nothing more than a grassy playground with soccer goals, monkey bars, and the likes between it and the trees. And considering it would be my last chance, the little smartass that was me decided I'd be going to explore these woods for a little bit. So it simply marched off. And a first, the thicket wasn't all that impressive - it was just your usual, middle-European deciduous forest in early autumn. Full of trees, yellowing leaves, and dead branches on the ground.

The actual anomaly was the burned smell I suddenly noticed at some point deeper in the woods. I genuinely had (and have) no idea what caused it - there was no smoke anywhere, and while my country does get the occasional forest fire, the temperatures on that were far too mild to cause one. Being a stupid kid, I promptly deduced that I was nearing some kind of hobo's fireplace or whatnot, and ran my scared ass back to the hostel. Didn't talk about it with anyone, and was well on my way back home the day after.

My parents picked me up once I was back in my hometown. While inside the car, my mother had asked me if I had heard the news, and when I replied I had not, she explained something terrible had happened in America: Some terrorists apparently had crashed planes into the World Trade centers. Or to put it differently: I came back at 9/12/2001 and the day when I suddenly was overcome by this strong burning smell was 9/11. I'm still pretty convinced this really was a mere coincidence, not to the least between the time difference between New York and my country is about six hours (New York UTC-5, my country UTC+1). So if the first plane crashed into the North Tower at 8:46 local time, it should have been around 14:46 in my timezone, and I remember it was in the late afternoon (around 4pm) when I went exploring, but the strange coincidence of dates still spooked me pretty good once I realized how they added up.

A lot of paranormal things happened at my old house out in the sticks. I always chalked it up to my childhood imagination until my mother corroborated a lot of the events. It was mostly average occurrences. Electronic toys acting up on their own and making weird noises, sometimes even without batteries up in the attic. Noises we thought were animals on the roof or in the walls. Items going missing and showing up in my closet, which seemed to be some kind of hot spot. It had an entrance going into the attic. I would sometimes have nightmares and sleep paralysis episodes where this dried, burnt figure with orange glowing eyes would stand at the foot of my bed and retreat into the closet whenever I moved. I say figure because the eyes were freakishly large and it had vaguely human proportions. No other features were on its face. It would turn into a shadow and bounce around the room furiously before going back in. I don't know how I fell asleep. I think its because as a child I was basically gaslit into thinking nightmares and imagination were just this vivid for everyone. The few times I looked at the clock after waking it was 3am. 
Another thing that was fucked was the tapping. I had two very large windows in my room, and there was a time where I'd hear tapping on one of them in the evening when I was alone. It wasn't the rapping of a birds beak on glass. More like a finger. I'd peer out the blinds and recoil when it started again. I almost chased the noise outside once when it first started because I thought it was my father. He had recently left my mom on bad terms. I thought he wanted to sneak me out. Fortunately I checked the driveway first and saw no car. My mother only heard it once and promptly hit the window believing it to be an animal. This memory would eventually creep her out, but only for reasons she filled me in on as a teen. Turns out she was seeing this guy in town and he was kind of shady, showing up at random times at our house or her work. There was one time we were curled up on the couch in the living room watching the Jirachi movie on VCR when we heard a cell phone go off outside. My mother immediately called the cops and I never knew why until she explained the context to me years later. 
That window would eventually be removed. Not because it was spooky, but because it broke during a fight I had with my cousin. My mom took it out and promised a replacement soon, but a single mother living 40 minutes away from the nearest hardware store can't often find time or money between work and school. I went a couple of weeks with nothing but a sheet tacked over it before my grandfather found out and threw a fit. Those nights I had to go lights out after dark or else I would get lots of bugs, and I mean lots. If you've ever seen a porchlight out here in Florida, you'd know how many hundreds of insects can accumulate there. I fell asleep once with my ceiling light on and woke up to something biting me and bugs covering the walls and ceiling. I'm talking every variety imaginable. Some huge. I developed a fear for insects touching me after that. 
There was another time the neighbors horse broke the fence and decided to stick its head in my window like it was a stall door. I guess the wind blew down the sheet and this thing expected some oats. I woke up to something large snorting in the darkness and screamed. This spooked the horse and it thrashed before ducking out. My mother quickly ran in and shone the flashlight around until we saw the painted mare still wandering around in the yard looking very contempt. This incident is how my grandfather found out actually. Fun times all around.

Does the old house have a history attached to it? The burned figure seems fairly specific as far as ghosts sightings or whatever it is are concerned .
A girl I used to work with about 15 years years ago told me her brother encountered a werewolf, or something similar.
They lived in Bury near Manchester in England and I don't know the area unfortunately.
Apparently this large pitch black thing that resembled a dog chased her brother and some of his mates through a wooded area, they reached the end of the path they were being chased along and climbed a chain fence at the end of it, her brother being the last one over. When they got down the other side and looked back at it, it was stood upright at the fence like a man I think she said it was well over 6' tall.
When their mam came to do the laundry, she found 3 big cuts down the front of the brothers shirt like from an animals claws.

I've never really had anything spooky happen to me, aside from seeing a big fuck off great dane looking dog staring at me through the trees in a local forest. I told it to fuck off back to its owner.
There was the dead body field in the same forest though. It was an open area with tall grass, no trees and overlooked a housing estate. It fucking smelled horrible there and after going there once our group of friends avoided it from then on. We called it dead body field because it smelled like something had died up there, but we never actually found anything.

They were, one of the recent sightings in Cheshire claimed that while the creature kind of looked feline, it didn't move like one.
I've seen wildlife trusts over the years say that they're indigenous wildcats, though at the rate they're actually seen by the public they may as well be fucking Bigfoot.

i don't know what you'd call this, probably me being a dumb kid and seeing shit and actually believing I saw shit. i think it was a morning before school and my mom was making breakfast, and for some reason i was in her bed because it was cold or something, no idea. anyways, i was tucked in with blankets and just kind of dozing off, when i saw something which i can only describe as a robot about my dad's height (pic related, even though this was before Gaylo 4) run through the wall, the bed, and then through me. and then it was over. I didn't feel different, just sort of thought to myself "that was weird" and that's it. I'm sure I knew at the time as well as now that it was just my semi-lucid brain seeing things, but it was still a bit strange

audible hallucinations are very common in the hypnopompic state.
Replies: >>865
Are visual hallucinations common too? I recall occasions when I was about to enter a state of deep sleep or have just woken up, in which I would often see or hear things or people that turned out to not be there. One time, I could've sworn my dad, who I hadn't spoken to in almost a decade, had broken into my house and started shouting at me. When I was fully awake, I realized that didn't really happen. I chalked it up being a nightmare, but it was so vivid and realistic that I'm not entirely convinced.
Just today, I was walking back home around 7pm when I was hit by a pretty nasty downpour. To be fair, it had been raining more or less non-stop all day, but while most of it was nothing a good jacket couldn't handle, it suddenly started pouring to the point my jeans were soaking wet in two minutes flat. To add insult to injury, this being mid-autumn meant the sun was pretty much gone by that point, and the dense clouds above only worsened things.

I'm half-walking, half-running down the street when I notice a person on the sidewalk some feet ahead to me. It's seriously dark at this point, so the only thing I can make out is that the figure is facing a nearby house, with its back turned to me. I just assume it's another guy surprised by the rain, but as soon as I blinked,the figure was gone.
My first thought was that I had seen nothing more than my own shadow. Except that doesn't make sense because there wasn't any light source to cast such a shadow, said shadow would not have simply popped out of existence, and the figure I saw very certainly was three-dimensional. In the sense that it wasn't just a projection cast across the pavement but a solid object with a clear-cut outline.
