Daily 2 Cents: Followed by Spirits -- Pub Ghost Stories -- CIA Admits Causing 1950's UFO Wave Over Norway


Followed by Spirits

I guess I will start at the beginning, when I was about 4, my mom used to tell me that she would see me in bed and talking with ghost she described as a "little boy" and although I don't really remember this I feel it could be relevant to the rest of the post.

Fast forward a couple years to when I was 6. We were living in a different house in a run down part of town, and pretty much as soon as I moved there I began seeing things. It started with a dog, a black lab, I would see him sitting in the doorway to my room rather often, he would disappear whenever I looked away but he was there.

Then I began seeing a woman, she was tall, with dark hair and wore a long white dress, kind of like a wedding dress, she was rather pale and always appeared half in the shadows, she would only ever be at the door to my mothers room.

My last and third experience in this house was this thing I can't really describe. Imagine a bee's stinger, about the size of a human thumb, colored black and yellow stripes. Well that would appear sticking out of my closet door every night. Every. Single. Night. I would tell it to come out, I would scream for my mom, I would tell it I am not scared of it, but it just stayed there halfway up my closet, sitting there, doing who know's what. It was there until just before we moved, it went away one night and I haven't seen it since.

Our next house as a trailer. Experiences were less often here but something new started. Whenever I was in a situation where I was about to be injured badly I would experience it in the third person. I mean like it was a TV show, I would see my body take the blow then suddenly I would be on the ground in immense pain back in my body. This has only happened 3 times I can remember.

In this house I occasionally saw what I would describe as a cliche grim reaper. He would be tall, with a dark robe, holding a large scythe, and he would only appear in the top corner of my room, like he was watching. Waiting.

My last experience in this house I was babysitting my sister. I was sitting in a position that I could see every door in the trailer except the back door. Suddenly a kid about my age fell to the ground with his head and shoulders sticking out of the little room that leads to the back door, he quickly got up and moved back into the room. Now, this door is impossible to open silently and was locked and dead bolted, with a dead bolt that only opens from the inside. When I went to investigate there was no one there. Not a soul in the room. I was terrified.

These experiences have been coming fewer and farer between as I get older, but my little sister who is 7 years younger than me began having them at the same age as my first ones in the house with the dog when we moved to our next house. She described a blue man, who would come into her rooms at night and talk to her, he would sit on her bed and watch her sleep. She was horrified of him. Around this time my sister also had about (not exaggerating) 100ish imaginary pet's, she made "mii's" for a lot of them on our wii, she had pet horses, dogs, cat's goats and a sheep.

One day we had a Pagan friend of ours who is very spiritual come over who did some stuff I am really not sure of what it was and hung up a bunch of "go away evil" type tokens (in an attempt to rid my sister of the blue man), however from the day after on we never heard a single thing about any of those imaginary pets. The blue man still came.

The last ever sort of experience I had, was a couple years ago in that house. I was hit by a car on my way to school and I experienced the entire event from a third person perspective, I saw my back as I rode my bike over the intersection, I saw my body hit the car and bounce off, then I was on the ground, in pain, screaming.

I moved into a different house earlier this year, I often feel I am being watched, but I haven't seen anyone, I haven't seen any animals, the only things that happen are occasional opening and closing of doors and weird sounds, but they are still there. I know they are. They have been following me my entire life and I just don't know what to do, who they are or why they are here.

I need help or insight, why are they following me, who is it I saw, and should I be worried about them? - Reddit.com

Pub regulars' ghost stories turned into a film

A landlord is hoping a new ghost film shot in his Croydon town centre pub will reawaken some old spirits.

Dean Terry, who runs The Ship in High Street has produced a half hour film based on the tales of regulars who say they have seen ghosts lurking in the near 400-year-old boozer.

The amateur film-maker wrote and directed The Lock-In, which stars five actors from The Breakfast Cat Theatre Company.

Mr Terry, 51, said: "I loved stop-motion animation as a child. There wasn't any technology back then so you had to have a lot of knowledge in what you were doing.

"I would just do silly things like make wildlife documentaries in the park with my friends but when I got a bit older my life went in a completely different direction."

That different direction saw Mr Terry spend 20 years touring the world as a professional singer, including a four-month tour supporting The Godfather of Soul James Brown.

After a spell in hotel management Mr Terry became landlord of The Ship in 2005. But it was only in the last few years that the Steven Spielberg fan was tempted to step back behind the camera.

He said: "Over the years I heard all these different stories from regulars about the ghosts they have seen.

"There are a lot of these stories about so you start to think maybe there is something in them."

With support from the pub's owners Marston's Inns, the film was shot over five Sundays.

The plot features a regular telling a similar tale to the ones Mr Terry had heard, leading to stranger events later in the film.

The Lock-In will serve as a prequel to two 90-minute films to form a trilogy, which he is now writing and hopes to start shooting by the end of the year. But does Mr Terry, who bravely lives above the haunted pub, believe in ghosts himself?

"I wouldn't call myself a believer but I certainly wouldn't like to be the one to say, 'no, there's no truth in it'." - Croydon Advertiser

CIA Admits Causing 1950's UFO Wave Over Norway

The CIA has revealed sightings of mysterious flying crafts travelling at high speeds with flashing lights were actually test flights of US military aircraft.

Top secret U2 spy planes flying at 18,000 metres created the phenomena and the CIA recently posted on their Twitter account, reports Aftenposten newspaper, saying: "Do you remember the reports of unusual activity in the sky in the 50's? That was us."

U2s flew at higher altitudes, way above most passenger planes and military aircraft. When the sun set below the horizon the U2s were still high enough to reflect its rays, and other pilots saw them as bright, silvery objects in the night sky, the CIA explained.

The official explanation was kept secret to avoid the Soviets learning of US military intentions during the Cold War. - The Local

WikiLeaks Documents Discuss Extraterrestrials, UFOs

Here’s a look at some of the mentions of unidentified flying objects (UFOs) and extraterrestrials in the U.S. government cables released by WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

Prominent Lithuanian Politician Says UFOs Directed by Russians to Exert Influence

A 2006 cable from the American Embassy in Vilnius, Lithuania, recounts a cryptic comment by the Prime Minister’s adviser Albinas Januska. The cable states: “Reflecting his self-image as a patriot fighting off Russian influence, he [Januska] also warned of the existence of ‘a group of people, who are directed from the East, a group of UFOs, who are making influence from the Cosmos,’ adding elliptically that, ‘there also exists a decreasing group of persons, who are trying to rationally analyze the situation and to objectively evaluate what is happening.’”

UFOs can refer to unidentified foreign organizations as well as to unidentified flying objects; aside from his reference to the cosmos, it could seem Januska meant the former. Januska held much power in the country, as is noted in the cable: “Albinas Januska’s continuing influence in Lithuanian politics cannot be overstated. In addition to being a cunning strategist, he is extraordinarily well-connected among Lithuania’s political class.”Read more at Openminds TV
