3. My uncle killed himself and came back as a bird
“When I was 9 years old, my uncle committed suicide when he lived with us.
He had lived with us for about 6 months at the time, and I had become really close with him during that time. I remember as a kid I had a severe fear of crows because of The Stand mini-series, and he was always trying to help me realize that they were just birds like all the other birds that I loved. I couldn’t really shake that fear I had of them, and one of the last things he ever said to me was that he was proud of me for at least trying.
Anyways, after his funeral, walking to my first day back to school, a fucking crow followed me all the way there – 6 blocks. It followed me to school every day to school until we moved a month later, every day without fail. I literally started calling it Jim (my uncle’s name) and I am no longer afraid of them.”
4. We summoned a ghost to the house
“I read about the Phillip experiment and it fascinated me. My housemate and I tried to replicate it, (created a fictional character called Harry bishop and would try to contact it) we would ask him to bring the remote to us, turn the light off etc, it kind of became an ongoing joke.
Then one night I was drunk and was calling Harry names, teasing him etc, dared him to show me a sign and I kid you not the door to my hallway creaked open slowly and my cat went mental, ever since then we made a pact to never talk about him, I’ve moved since and I’ve had another few strange things happen.”
