anyone else here have that thing where you can definitively remember doing/using/watching something, a tv show, a type of tool, etc. but can find not even a trace of evidence that the aforementioned thing ever actually existed at all? pic unrelated
Well, this isn't exactly the case for me but I do remember seeing that movie "Hotel for Dogs" or whatever it was called before it actually came out. I think the ending was also a little different but I remember seeing it years before it actually came out and my friend who I saw it originally with also remembers this.
OP here, my own experience was as follows: I remembered watching some live action fantasy show as a kid, from what I remember was low budget and cheesy as hell and had a guy who looked like hagrid in it who caught this fish one time. It was basically the best shit. Anyways, years later I discovered the internet, decide to try to find said tv show. I had no success. a few years after that, my friend and I tried again, with absolutely no success. I could remember the library I checked it out at with my mom when I was about 3 or 4, and I couldn't find any trace of the library either. I finally found the library, and it was closed down, but it still looked the way I remembered. I'm still trying to find this show, I can remember the intro that played during the theme song and everything, I just cant remember any names.
There was a tv show in the early morning I would watch before school as a kid. It was set in a caveman era and there were dinosaurs and creatures and they seemed to be people in costumes and suits. They would always sing a song about time, rocking around the clock, something prehistoric in the title as well. To this day my mother tells me I didn't watch tv before school. Any ideas?
>>14658449 Yes... I remember a song that was very popular, and one day I started humming it to myself, and thought maybe I'd search for this song online to hear it again, but couldn't find a trace of it.
>>14658584 any idea how old you were when you watched it? The only thing I can think of that would kind of fit that description is Eureeka's Castle. It wasn't live action, though there is a character that looks a little like Hagrid.
I have a couple of extremely specific events/memories that have happened to me a few times. Every time they (or probably something similar) happen I get a weird deja vu feeling. I can't even explain the events because I only get the feeling during them, then I forget until the next time it happens. I just know the feeling now because I've experienced it enough. The most recently it happened to me was a couple of weeks ago, and I felt almost physically disoriented because of it, like my mind went to another place entirely.
>>14658449 I once sprained my ankle so bad, i could see the size of my shoe, underneath the sole. My dad is a Ron Swanson kind of guy, and refused to let me go to the hospital, so he drove me home in this big land rover he had at the time and I remember the roaring of the engine sort of matching up with the pulsing ache in my ankle. I remember that I did not go to school for a month and that I used a hobbyhorse as a crutch. I remember having a picture taken and developed with a fisher price camera i had (pic related).
I've struggled with this injury for years, but my parents cannot remember it at all. They only remember a different and much less crippling accident i had, later in my childhood.
>>14658634 OP here, I think I have heard of that also, and thats pretty much the situation I am in, neither of my parents can remember me ever having watched the show, which does go along with the memory as I dont remember them being in the room as I watched it.
>>14658780 OP again, thats really interesting actually. I hate experiences like that, where you can really distinctly remember something happening, but nobody else seems to remember it. I will forever imagine your dad as basically being ron swanson from this point on.
>>14658673 >>14658746 >>14658795 >>14658842 None of these. I watch dinosaurs to this day. It was people in costumes and a real set that looked like a child's version of a prehistoric civilization. OP, maybe we were abducted and watched this and were trained to believe it was in the comfort of our homes. In all seriousness though, it was on channel 9 or pbs around 5:30 in the morning
>>14658449 I remember an animated movie for children I watched during christmas time, must have been 8-9 yo...it was about vegetable people that were once human but turned into vegetable, they were all living in greenhouses. A flood was coming and I remember that the ending was kinda disappointing...sort of like a artsy kid movie. must have been slav watever I passed a lot of time to find it but never been successful
I have a memory of watching either a scary movie or TV show with my grandma. All I remember of it is a little boy (probably about 8ish) walking down a long hall in a house with lots of doors on either side. He opens one door and behind it is a creepy witch (or what I remember to be a witch), I think behind her is a crazy storm reminiscent of the Wizard of Oz. We used to always watch scary movies together like Polterguiest and the Exorcist... It really bothers me that I can not for the life of me remember this one. And of course she has no idea what it is.
I have this weird memory of my dad and brother teasing me with this really horrible toy, it was this frame with a button on it and when you pressed it, a face would appear in the cloth or whatever the stretchy material was. I was only 5-8 years old at the time and most of that time is a huge blur to me except a few other equally weird events, only a few of which i know ACTUALLY happened.
I remember watching a Musicvideo on MTV. It was animated, if I remember correctly only in black and white. Refrain was sth like: This is the sth. sth sth. It's here just you and me Let's sing our magic melody.
During the refrain the girl sang and the boy tried grabbing her by the hips trying to dance with her, but she didn't like it.
Song was titled Magic Melody iirc.
Was 6-8 years ago. Just remembered rescently, maybe two months ago, and tried finding the song. Couldnt find anything.
>a kind of messed up child hood and feel really disassociated with everything sometimes. But I tend to block out a lot of childhood memories and replace them with new different memories
Memory is much more "plastic" than we would like to admit. If things do not fit in with our schema we tend to disregard them, infact retroactively we change memories or can incorperate new information into what seems to be old memory.
Memory implantation is really interesting, Loftus and Pickrell pioneered it.
I remember watching an episode on The X files in the late 90s/early00s about two drunk teenage girls seeing little tree people on their property. I rewatched the series a couple of years ago and it wasn't there.
>>14660013 Maybe it was from another series that aired around then, like Millennium.
I've been searching for a song I heard on the radio one time. I'm using wikipedia to give me lists of songs and then YouTube to check them. So far no luck, but I'm only about a third of the way through all the possibilities (it's really slow going).
I've experienced something like this. A few years back, I recall reading a news article that a native american tribe had a contract with the u.s. stating that they could have their land back after a certain year. A couple weeks after I first read the article, I tried to find it again, but all trace of it was gone. I blame the u.s. govt.
I was so sure that there was this "Got Milk?" marketing campaign using a blue monster as a mascot in the 90's. The commercials would be about a unseen cameraman interviewing local dairy-related people inquiring about the big blue monster that steals milk. While being interviewed, you could see the blue monster in the background doing shit like walking by really quick looking at the cameraman with his big soulless puppet eyes. He looked like something straight from Sesame Street but a little bit more on the creepy side, not nightmare fuel, but easily creepy. I fucking could have sworn this shit was real, I was legitimately surprised that all my google searches yielded no results after I was feeling a bit nostalgic and decided to reminisce on a whim. I want to assume that it was just an intricate dream, but damn...
When I was about 4 or 5 my sister had brought home a VHS tape from her work filled with random music videos. I remember the video for the song Tarzan and Jane by Toy-Box was on it, but there was another video with a song saying "One Eye." I don't know if it was just the chorus or the name of the song but I remember a black woman sang it in the video and there was a red alien/monster cartoon with one eye in the video as well. I also remember some of the tune to it. My sister remembers the tape but has no idea where it went and doesn't recall that video. It pisses me off so much I can't find it. I still try to google it from time to time.
I often remember movies having completely different endings, especially when I rewatch some of those I saw in my childhood. I probably made them up and convinced myself that is how it was. I often fell into trance-like states when I was a kid, not noticing anything around me, when I was drawing or just thinking. Probably something like that happend and I just played the movies to the end in my head.
Today I just tend to mix up situations I saw in my dreams and real life. This often makes me look for books or movies that just don't exist.
I remember seeing a film about a buncha guys whose friend (played by Tom Hanks) is getting married so they organise some kind of party for him with strippers and hookers meanwhile his bride goes to see male strippers and a guy sticks his cock in a hotdog bun and serves it to her.
Nobody remembers this film except for me, and I can't find any details about it on the Internet.
>>14658449 Yeah. I can distinctly remember reading that Hitler had in interest in H.P Lovecraft and his men came to him wanting him to put out an english copy of Mein Kampf, but his wife warned him not to and so he didn't. But every time I go to try to find that information it's like it never existed in the first place.
It was a text adventure game (with some art) that I found online. Possibly flash. It was based on the Aliens series. Involved investigating some colony. The ending (or at least one of them) involved joining some semi-alien queen and some transhumanism shit and getting in this gigantic ship thing, and I think they were heading for earth.
It was very creepy, had a very desolate atmosphere. I've been almost obsessed with finding this. I think I saw a link to it somewhere on 4chan, at least 4 years ago.
>>14658712 If it helps, I can explain why this is. It's nothing supernatural. There are two types of memory, short term and long term. Short term is extremely short (like how I accidentally misspelled "short" as "shirt") memories that are completely discarded minutes after forming. Kinda like RAM for your body. It's basically the what you experience life with. Anything your brain deems necessary to retain is moved to long-term memory, which is everything from remembering breakfast this morning to your trip to Disney world when you were 5. Déjà vu occurs when your brain fucks up and you begin experiencing what's happening right now (like you usually would using short-term) with your long-term memory, making it feel exactly like you're living through a distinct memory from long ago, except really vivid. That's why you can't remember any of these events bride they happen, and you can't predict what will happen in the forthcoming seconds during déjà vu.
TL;DR déjà vu is just a lapse in short-term memory, causing you to experience the present as though it were a memory.
>>14661806 There's no absolute consensus on what déjà vu is. That's one of the most popular theories with a lot of experts backing it, and by far the most logical one to me. As for group déjà vu, I don't really know. Does it have something to do with drugs? Maybe it's linked to the fact that humans are hard wired to interact with each other as if we're in a pack in a safari trying to survive. Kinda like how you yawn and stretch when you see somebody else do it because subconsciously you all want to be limber enough to try and outrun a wild boar or something. Maybe it's a fault in that system that could cause a small group to both feel déjà vu.
in the early 2000s me and 4 of my friends went to this punk rock show at the campus. All of us were sober.
it was some relatively uknown band but they were really really good, and I even bought one of their CDs
I lent the CD to one of my friends who went with me so he could burn it.
A few months later I asked him about the CD and he had no idea what I was talking about. I reminded him of the concert we went to a few months back, still he didn't remember anything.
I asked my other 3 friend who went to the show, and NONE of them had an recollection of going at all.
10 years have passed and I have talked to them several times individually to see if they were fucking with me because it was really really weird, and they honestly say they don't remember anything at all.
The band name was the Crush or the Crash or something
I'm not an /x/ regular, nor am I sure if what has been happening to me is what you're explaining, but I figured I'd chip in anyway.
Basically, the last two or three years I've been getting regular moments of deja vu? Thing is, it just doesn't feel like what I associated with deja vu before - It's less of a feeling and more just a click that goes off in my head.
Recently I've been testing it to see if I really 'know' what's going to happen next or if it's just a sortof feeling or response, and it doesn't seem to be the latter at all - The most recent 'good' example being that I was at work, not doing much as the day was winding down and instead was talking to my friend on steam. That flash of 'this is going to happen now' happened and I knew the next three messages he was going to send me and lo and behold, he did.
For the record, they were rather vague - First message was a generic response (yeah, I agree) and the next two was regarding an unrelated topic that didn't tie into the conversation we were having currently, but like I said - I knew what was coming and basically waited for it to happen, and it did.
I have numerous examples of this happening - Sometimes I try and attribute it to stuff like, 'well, it's expected behaviour' etc, but other times it's just so foreign, I'm expecting completely unrelated occurrences and I know they are going to happen and they always do.
I think the best other example happened to me over a month ago, was listening to the radio and had that feeling come over me. Again though, it's weird - It's not like a voice saying, 'this song is going to play', it's more just a feeling of knowing - Anyway, I muttered the artist and title and that was the next song to start playing.
Figured I'd throw it out there. No idea, most likely just generic deja vu and it's not really something I can do anything about, has just been happening frequently last few years.
>>14661895 >I think the best other example happened to me over a month ago, was listening to the radio and had that feeling come over me. Again though, it's weird - It's not like a voice saying, 'this song is going to play', it's more just a feeling of knowing - Anyway, I muttered the artist and title and that was the next song to start playing. Occasionally when I'm listening to music on my phone, usually while playing vidya or running or cooking or something my mind is occupied by, I will just think of the next song that plays. It happens so often it's kinda freaking me out when I notice it. I always have it on shuffle, and I have 153 songs. It just seems more so creepily common now that I'm cognitive of it. I'll just be listening to a song, singing under my breath, and the song will be getting down to the end. As the last couple of notes are played, I will sometimes just start singing the next song to myself and it will show up. Happens maybe once a day or so. I tell myself that I subconsciously make a game out of trying to guess the next song, and if I'm wrong I just don't consciously notice it and move on. In the end that's more plausible then me wing some sort of iPhone music shuffle wizard, so that's what I end up believing. If you eat 100 skittles and 3 of them are actually M&M's, your perception of that bag of skittles will be that there were a shit ton of M&M's mixed in there. TL;DR: It's probably just shit your mid does subconiously+observation bias.
>>14661668 Because it's wrong. Hitler surely didn't know about Lovecraft, but Lovecraft had an interest in Hitler. Sonia Greene wrote that Lovecraft read Mein Kampf in one sitting and she was mad at him for that. Lovecraft himself wrote that Hitler was a clown, but that he loved him.
>>14659938 There's a book by AC clarke and stephen baxter called the light of other days where they invent wormhole cameras. there's a whole court scene where they talk about memory disturbances, called confabulation, where you make up old memories without even realizing it.
>childhood deja vus/memories .... http://io9.com/5921310/how-to-give-people-the-feeling-of-deja-vu >One way to create the sensation is simply to implant false memories in someone — a task that is surprisingly easy. There have been multiple experiments where, with just a little coaching, people will remember a specific memory of being lost in a mall as a child and found by a kindly old lady, despite their relatives confirming that that never happened. Other times, people have been convinced that they saw a person in a Bugs Bunny costume entertaining them during a childhood trip to Disneyland, despite Bugs not being a Disney character. People will remember all kinds of things, with a little prompting.
Three things for sure, but with some other memories that are iffy on whether they were just dreams or imaginations.
Either way, the first was that I had nearly drowned when I went on a vacation trip with my Aunt, Uncle, and sister. It was at a water park, and before I went under I remember the lifeguard yelling to get me out of the pool. I was rescued somehow and I distinctly remember waking up from complete blackness on the ground and choking up the water. My aunt commented on how pale I looked. No one seemed to care at all, either - it was just weird, I guess. After that, I just got up and we went onto the random water slides and shit, as if it all never even happened. I've never asked about it after that, mostly because it just sounds crazy to ask about something like that.
Earlier than that, when I was around 5 years old I fell off the wooden jungle gym in my backyard. I don't honestly remember how it came to it, but I do remember right during it and getting patched up by my mother afterwards. I remember the wind getting knocked out of me, and then seeing the huge scrape on my chest that I got from it. I've asked about this, but no one remembers. It might just be insignificant, honestly.
The last is of a person I knew in my old town before I moved. There was a girl I was apparently friends with since I was little, but I don't have any other memories of her other than her first name, and the last day I saw her (when I moved). We moved when I was 6, so this will sound stupid and corny as hell, but she gave me a farewell kiss and said she liked me. I remember my parents joking about this for days, and I was really tsun tsun about it. In high school I ended up meeting a girl with the same name, but I never found out if it was actually her. I asked my parents about it at the time but they had no idea who I was talking about. >mfw at that point
I used to get deja vu all the fucking time growing up into my mid teens. Like something happens and you feel like you've gone through the exact motions of that scene before. Get this strong feeling that you predicted the future.. then it fades and you don't even really remember what it was. Pretty sure it's just a glitch in the brain as it's storing new memories in real time. Trippy though.
I remember an event that happened as a child. I was around five or six when it happened.
I went to the local(ish) grocery store with my mom. As we were getting out of the car, I slammed my thumb into the door. I remember being in the back seat behind the driver's seat (it was a small grey car) and gripping the door with a fist when I slammed it. There was blood everywhere and I remember my mom giving me a towel ( i think it was green) that she kept in the glove box and drove me to the hospital about ten mins away. We got admitted right away since it was clearly an emergency. And i even remember my mom telling me "Anon get back in bed! You're still bleeding!" when i tried to go to the bathroom that was connected to the room. I still laugh because I wasn't tall enough to reach the light switch and the reaching made the towel fall off and I got blood everywhere. I can't remember what happened after that.
My mom says it never happened. I remember it so clearly. I remember the blood, the pain, and the screaming.
>>14665232 I even remember stepping on a fork and it went completely through my big toe (horizontally like across the toe). I remember why it happened too. I was around three and was already running by the time I was two years old. So i was running in the house in the dark (couldn't reach light switches and it was 3am hah) and i ran into the kitchen to get something to drink. BAM stepped on that fucking fork and i was a fat kid so there was enough force for it to be driven in. I stopped running and hopped over to the steps. I was in a daze, most likely shock, and I don't remember crying at all. Just yelling for my parents. They both came down and saw the fork. My dad grabbed a big metal mixing bowl form the kitchen and filled it with salt water and had me soak it while he tried to get it out. He managed to and we just stuck some bandages on there.
My mom doesn't remember that. And I haven't really talked to my dad since I was four so I couldnt bring it up.
I was around four years old. Around the time my mom left my dad. He got mad one day and decided to take it out on our cat. He stomped on the cat and kicked it down the stairs. She was pregnant too. I was downstairs when it happened and the poor thing was spazzing out. Kind of like it was trying to run while lying on its side. And blood was coming out of every orifice on its body. It was super gross but it scarred me. I remember my mom being in the bathroom downstairs and screaming at my dad for being a dick and killing my cat.
Asked my mom about it years later and she told me "You never had a cat when we lived there. Your father is allergic." wtf last time I talked to him (about three years ago) I asked him if we ever had a cat when I was living with him. He said he hated cats and never got one for us since he was allergic.
I remember going to the park with my father once when I was young. I cannot remember why but my other siblings were not there. I spent the duration of my time there playing with two little red head kids, a brother and sister. My father's fat ass sat on the bench and watched until it was time to leave. When the time did come he called me over to him and told me to get in the car. I protested, asking him to let me say goodbye to the kids I had been playing with and he said "What kids?" and I turned around and no one was there. Bear in mind though that my father is a bit of a twisted man-child so it is possible that they just left and he was fucking with me.
I remember watching this one-shot cartoon when I was younger, somewhere in the mid to late 90s I think. It was on either Nickelodeon or Cartoon Network, part of one of those shows they used to have where they'd show short, one-shot cartoons that sometimes were turned into full series.
Anyway, it was about this little girl who was a compulsive liar. She lied about every little thing and hurt people and all that bullshit. Then she finds a tiny monster in her room that explains it was born from her lies. She keeps lying and it gets bigger and bigger until it gets huge and tries to eat her. There's this scary, dramatic scene where she tries to avoid getting eaten. Then she tells the truth. The monster shrinks a bit. Then she runs out of her room and confesses a bunch of her lies to her mom and they make up. It ends with the monster being really tiny and the main girl stepping on it as she walks out the front door with her mom to get ice cream or some shit.
I only saw it once but I can't remember what network it was on or what show it was a part of. Anyone else remember this thing?
>>14658449 sheet this stuff is interesting /x hadn't heard about the mandela effect until this thread here are some others from that blog; http://mandelaeffectDOTcomSLASHmajor-memories >shame i don't have any memories of stuff the main stream don't remember. sure i had loads as when i was younger but am old fag now and society quietened my inquisitiveness
back around mid 2007 there was an advertisement for an indoor garden hydroponic system that was supposed to have been the result of years of studying the effects of led lights on plants was supposed to be able to grow various garden produce quickly it had a website with a name that went something like tryagarden.com
had the inventor on the tv hyping it up
the ran that informercial for several months and i thought i would check it out later
when i got around to looking for it there was no mention of it anywhere
>>14666377 i remember a ton of shit like this, as would be expected of infomercial products. there were little pot-sized units as well meant to be an indoor herb garden to sit in the kitchen. of course really i don't think they were kidding anyone it was for marijuana, which might have been why the boom eventually faded.
Back from when I was a kid, I remember in my grandparent's house there was a room where my grandfather worked. The door had a handle attached so that I couldn't reach it from ground. Now they don't live there anymore and when I asked my mother about it she says there was no doorhandles out of order.
Also, I remember talking some things over with my friends, but when I try to bring up the subjects they look like we haven't talked about that at all. There are several talks i "had" this way. Not sure if those fake memories are me talking to them telepathicaly, talking to them in parallel universe, or my subconsciousness making stuff up from what I know/imagine about them.
>>14659682 Depending on how old you were, it could have been a number of movies. Don't know about the scene specifically, but maybe watching stuff like Hocus Pocus, The Witches of Eastwick or Roald Dahl's Witches might jog your memory. Even if not, they're all pretty decent movies. If you have anymore questions, let me know, I watched a lot of this kind of stuff when I was a kid.
I remember watching a music video as a kid where these children find a naval mine on a beach and they play with it until it explodes and kills them. I've looked for it since on google but couldn't find anything.
I also watched some whacked out safety video in high school where a drunk dude pours lighter fluid onto a barbecue and engulfs his entire body in flames. I know I definitely am not making this up, because other friends remember watching it, but I haven't been able to find that either, and people will post the most random shit on youtube these days. It's rare that you won't be able to find something.
Eh, not paranormal. But maybe somebody will recognize it.
I've got a pretty spooby one here, I promise I'm not bullshitting.
>When I was around 4-5 I absolutely definitely had a friend called Nicole, but everyone I knew at that time denies her existence. She and I always played out in my back yard. She lived up my road in a house on the corner and my friend Sam (who does exist, saw him today) was with us most of this time. Now he and my mother both say that there was no girl and it was just me and Sam. Her house is owned by some black family and she's not in any old photos. I know for sure that she's real and have extremely vivid memories of going to church with her and building Lego with only red bricks.
>I also can't find her on Facebook or on any other social networks.
>>14661183 I've got thousands of these tiny snippets of memory that only contain really brief and vague details like that.
There's this song that I swore was on Pokemon when I was older but it's not on the OST. It was really quiet and relaxed I think it was bells and a violin cuts in at some point. The more I think about it it may have been from Courage the Cowardly Dog but I can't find it. I want to so bad because it was a beautiful song.
ibremember playing ps2 too long and tripping everything is sliding to the left breety fast, i was still trying to lvl up on headhunter, high speed on motorcycle was needed, i did it, fell from the chair, got dragged up by something, into something, somewhere. then i saw my mom doing weird stuff with 5 man and dad watching aside
>>14658449 Making this thread actually made this memory come back. Thanks, I guess.
When I was between the age of 2-7 (when I still lived in New York), I had a "memory" of a game I would play on my dad's old 98 computer. We had snood, some maze game, 3d pinball, etc. But, as a child I often played this game called "fingers" or "thumbs" the name will make sense later. I really only played this game alone, but occasionally had my dad nearby. I digress, this game had a PAC-man like style to the board. It was maze like, and an overhead view. You had two sprites a male and a female (the names escape me), and the goal was to collect keys to unlock the levels door to progress through to the next level. The main enemy were these little fingers, the size of the finger means the severity and speed of enemy. Cont? It gets kind of creepy.
>>14667595 Cont. If the finger was a middle finger, it was slower, but killed in one hit, pinky was faster than you, but was weak as shit. The female character could use a "stealth" like thing and was fast, but had no weapons. The male had no stealth, so he was seen from down any hallway (remember the map is a pacman thing), but he had lasers that could kill enemies. The fingers could only hit melee, and didn't actually kill you, the arrested you. If you failed on the early missions, there was a pixelated drawing of the two in a jail cell, with the fingers all looking at them. As the levels progressed, the maze became longer, there were more enemies, and the started getting armor. Also, bosses started to appear, the first few just bring hands. Also, I started to notice as the level progressed the "jail" picture was more and more gruesome. The first one was as mentioned. The second one, the guy had a cast on, and the woman was bleeding, the third had the same people, but the fingers were reaching into the jail cell. The fourth mission is when things started getting weird. The fingers started being more realistic, and noises started occurring. I also noticed that the first person to be caught would fall down, scream, and get swarmed. Once this happened, the second character when stopped would look as if they started crying. And there faces would have blue tear streaks on their face.
>>14667681 Once the second person was captured, the fingers would swarm, too, but they would then back off, and show a bloody mess that was your second character. Then the jail scene appeared, and fuck. This literally freaked me out so much as a kid I cried. The first person who was swarmed was in the background outside of the jail cell, being dragged away with a blood streak behind them. The second person (it was the man for me), was sitting up in a corner, crying hard, with blood coming heavily from his face arms, and legs. This put me off for a few days, but as a stupid kid, I cAme back. Continuing after this one, just cut it a bit short, since I didn't say I would in the last part.
>>14658449 Dude, I have a very distinct memory of having the first two episodes of a mecha anime that I've never since been able to track down. I was 13 years old (this would have been in 2002) and staying the night at a relative's, who had premium cable.
The anime featured two types of mecha, Modular Frames, which could be loaded out with different configurations for versatility but were structurally vulnerable, and Dedicated Frames, which couldn't be reconfigured but were way more durable, and generally more powerful. I remember it used that exact terminology.
Actually for the last year I've been wondering if this show even existed that I've had flashbacks from. It was a tv show maybe 10+ years back from Australia (don't know how I remember, can't remember the characters or their speech) which was about these maybe 25 year old guys and girls lives. I remember there was always summer there and there were maybe 3-5 guys and same amount of girls in the show and they partied and shit. Maybe I remember it because it was a whole new concept for a boy of my age. Must've been somehow famous show since it aired in Finland.
>>14667716 After returning, I beat the third level for the first time, and advanced to the fourth. It started off with an animation of the two running, hands held, away from a horde of fingers. The thing that stood out, was that there was one HUGE thumb in the very back that wasn't running towards the pair, but was just watching. This mission was by far the hardest. It started out with an instant attack, no time to plan, and the map was a straight hallway. As the map appeared a text box appeared at the top. This was the first time the two people spoke in the game.
Female: "I'm scared" Male: I don't remember his line, it was something along the lines of "me too" Then a text box appeared that said "escape"
I of course started to run, with both characters. As the enemies got closer, I tried to fire with the males gun, but I realized he had none. Then another box appeared "no fighting. Run."
I constantly have moments where I get de ja vu and it will continue for about 5 minutes, and I swear that I'm predicting everything that happens in those 5 mins, like it all fits.
But I also once had de ja vu in the exact place I'd had de ja vu before (had it from looking at the same sign) and thus got de ja vu of having de ja vu and got stuck in some weird cycle for what felt like a few minutes.
>>14667752 Not much else eventful happened, I realized if one of your characters got caught, and one escaped, the next mission would only have that one person. I of course played it until both escaped. I never saw the jail picture for this map, and I'm kind of glad. Sadly, the next mission was the last one I ever played, because I got too scared.
The next map was a prison, full of cells. The first thing that occurred was a text box that said "you shouldn't be here", but no enemies appeared. As I walked my characters down the hall, you could approach cells and activate them, opening to show either dead people, empty, people who would just flee, and the occasional sane person who would speak to you. Most of them said "get out", or "they killed so many". As i progressed through the mission, it became more and more morbid. Dead bodies piled, blood on the floor, and bloody scribbles that, I guess, was writing. Around the end of the mission, an ungodly amount of enemies appeared, along with that thumb. As the attacked, they killed the girl first, since I was too slow to activate stealth, leaving her defenseless. Then they jumped the guy attacking him. After he was beaten it becomes a bit hazy. The jail scene appeared, and fuck, that still gives me the fucking shakes.
>>14667809 The jail scene had a bloody pulp in the background with fingers all around it dancing. I guess this was the girl. After looking away form it, I saw the man, standing in the middle of the room, staring at me. It scared the piss out of me, and I screamed like any 5 year old would. He said "this is your fault, all of this, why did you do this, Ryan" he said my name. He fucking said it. It could have figured it out by my account that I was logged into on windows 98, I don't know. Then the still picture started moving, the thumb entered, picked up the man who started crying, then squished him like a bug. The thumb turned to me, and said "you're next, Ryan." I noped, turned off the computer, and don't remember anything for a week or so.
>>14667362 No unfortunately. That's the song people commonly point me to though. The song I'm thinking of was a lot simpler. No piano or extra instruments just the bells. It was less somber too just sort of peaceful.
>>14667844 The next complete memory I have after this was a few days before I moved. I had just woken up, it was a nice day, around 10 am. I walked out groggily to my dad, and asked where our computer was. "I sold it to mister and misses Jaxson next door." I of course was sad, since all my games were gone, but also relieved since IT was gone. Skip to when I was about 10. I asked my dad something along the lines of "do you remember that game with the fingers". He said " I have no clue, buddy." Trying to sound sincere, but clearly didn't care. Still to this day, I have no clue at all as to what that was. I ask my dad occasionally now, when I visit him, but he still has no clue and chalks it up as my childhood imagination. I silently agree, but know deep down it was real. It had to be. This is the first time I've ever told the story In its full. I guess to get it off my chest? Maybe. My only word of advice is to not play any games with fingers. Thanks for listening, if anyone has.
Oh and that pic in my first post, as ,>>14667632 said, was zeek the geek, lol. I wanted to see if anyone would get it.
I remember this one time on some Spanish news network (I don't speak it so I've no idea what was going on) there was a lady crying hysterically and the screen cut to people dragging out what looked to be grey mush in large plastic bags. It was really freaky and to this day I can't find a record of it.
I remember this one show with puppets like they were really ugly and tried to be realistic but god. I didn't know how to change the channel so I was forced to watch it. There was like, a cat and a dog and a raccoon I think??
also this other show called "Max the Cat" which I am 100% is/was a real show about an orange cat that travelled around the world and it just kinda looked like a storybook that with narration but I can't find it anywhere.
Once when i was in 6th grade our class was ready to take a math test and i had sworn i had taken it before, and i began to fill in answers without even reading the question fully because i remembered the answer. My teacher then called me after class to yell at me for cheating because i didnt show any work and i got everything right.
Honestly this kind of shit gets to me more than most ghost stories or things like that. Just something about realizing how faulty and worthless your senses and memory actually are is pretty terrifying.
I remember vividly having a conversation with my mother when I was young about how some people eat grasshoppers as snacks, and how her mother had bought a bag when she was younger and told my mom she'd get a dollar if she ate one, which she did. A couple years back I got the chance to try some, and remarked about it to my mom, who claims not only to never have eaten one, but to not know anyone personally that has. Nothing life-changing, but a bizarre thing for her to forget or for me to misremember so detailed.
I also remember watching a show on TV once when young, no idea what it was about, but this small portion I caught was about aliens or monsters or something stealing people's bodies and going about their lives in their skin. All I remember was it was a sort of office setting, and a woman who worked with the main character (a guy I think) walked in and smiled, but as she passed through the sunlight he could suddenly see through her like when you put a light to your finger, except she was opaque white all the way through with red and blue veins all around her silhouette, until she stepped out of the light and returned to normal. I don't even really know how to go about finding out what show it was, but it scared the shit out of me and coupled with my delusional-level OCD as a child I legitimately feared it was real. Dunno if this sounds remotely familiar to anyone.
There were a lot of weird things that happened to me as a kid in the old house that my parents can remember me reacting to (I kept my closet shut always, and I slept with the light on during the night for a year or two) but they don't recall happening at all, though I think in general kids can have imaginations so wild they seem vividly real. Those don't really belong in this thread though.
My brother described this weird deja vu like thing that happened to him quite a while ago, where he had the deja vu feeling (that he had seen the events before even though he was sure that he had not), but it lasted extremely long, and at some point, his memories that he was sure he couldn't have had acquired started disagreeing with the actual events, like there was some stranger who was supposed to turn right, but he didn't in actuality. And then, after a while, it just ended.
I'm not sure if this exactly counts, but I once watched this very weird video - seemed to be based on various pieces of art being animated. It was like following this one guy going from one scary situation to another. I remember one specific scene from it involved a creature in the "Hell" section of Garden of Earthly Delights, by Hieronymous Bosch (pic included, the weird creature eating a person is the one in the video). It also sort of had a nightmarish feel to it. I've searched for this video so many times in the past 4 years or so, but no matter what, I can't seem to find it. I've posted online before, and no one else seems to have heard of it.
I remember back in, maybe around 2004 I had this little booklet at home with adds for mobile games, and among them was this vampire game. The description said that you play as a vampire, wake up in a crypt, break out and than have the whole city at your disposal, the way they described it sounded like you were really powerful and not evil at all, but still have the ability to do bad things. I really wanted to play it but I had a shitty phone and couldn't download it. I was so intrigued and really wanted to play that game. After some years I found out about the pc game Vampire the Masquerade Bloodlines, and it came out around that time so I figured it was a mobile version, but I can't find anything similar to this, no mobile Bloodlines game, nor any mobile vampire game that sounds like this. I also have something else I've been looking for, when I was really little, at my grandparents home, we watched a movie about what I guess was Dante's Inferno, and it had this one scene that made me cry, the main character walked in a cave and there were two bald men, one of them was eating the other guys head, it was very gruesome and bloody. I can't find this movie with this scene anywhere. I'd really appreciate if anyone knows anything about any of this.
One time my boyfriend rolled a joint, and he set it on the table right next to us so he could walk over to the computer and hit play on the movie we were about to watch. I had watched him walk over to the computer and come sit down next to me, and when he went to grab the joint it was fucking gone. Like straight up disappeared off the face of the earth. We spent two hours looking for it, moving ever single piece of furniture in the living room into a different room. We never found it. It just blew our minds that it literally vanished like that. Pretty pissed too.
My supervisor at Long John Silvers plunged her uncovered arms past elbow depth into a bucket of cole slaw. I think she was putting something into the slaw. The next day I mentioned it at the end of the shift and she looked really weirdly at me. Nobody else could remember it happened. I never talked about it afterwards.
>>14658449 I'm glad you started this thread. I usually have déjà vu sensations regarding books, movies and series, places and life situations in general, all of them real. However, for as long as I can remember there have been in the back of my head several dreamlike locations I don't recall dreaming about, and obviously I have never visited. Among all those places, the most vivid ones are these: >A megalithic city surrounded by huge, white walls >A steampunk-looking city with great zeppelin-like airships that is under some sort of oppressive dictatorship. >A luxurious flat in a great metropolis with soaring skyscrapers >A vast system of tunnels in a praire environment
It is hard to explain, but they don't feel like real experiences, not like dreams either, so to speak I feel like they are a predetermined part of my mind.
>>14668410 Also I recall two imaginary friends from my early childhood. They were a married couple of creatures that lived under my bed: the female had huge eyes with long eyelashes, big, red lips and was covered in purple fur, and the male was noticeably smaller, covered in short brown fur and had a triangle-shaped nose. I know that I didn't make them up, and they looked like something out of the Muppets or Sesame Street, but they aren't present on any of them. Any ideas?
>>14667595 I remember playing a (flash?) game that was mechanically similar. Probably a different game, though, since I don't remember any spooky shit or fingers, though I don't remember its name either.
First, I was like 4, and I had this CD with some kid's songs on it and I remember there being one track that I really hated, it was track 5, and I always skipped it because I hated it so much. And then, one day, the song is suddenly track 4 (and it still is, and there is no record of it ever being anything else. Naturally). I remember being 100% sure that it had been track 5 before. In fact, I seriously believed that randomly changing the order of songs is normal behavior for CDs for a good long while because of this.
In the other one, I was 5 I think. There was a movie we had on VHS that I liked, and one day when I was home alone watching it (which sounds a little weird now that I mention it, maybe there was someone else home but at least I was unsupervised), suddenly there was a video of some creatures that were basically skeletons that had skin dancing in the middle of that movie and I found it very uncomfortable to watch, so I stopped. Later, in a similar situation, I watched it again and it still had that creepy video there. But now it doesn't. And again, there is nothing to indicate that it ever was there, but I remember being creeped out by those damn skin-skeleton creatures twice and one of those times I remember very clearly (I vaguely remember that there was another time but that isn't as clear, I actually think I just remember thinking that the one time I remember was already the second).
I actually never thought anything much of these, but now that I think of it, this is fucking scary. CDs don't just randomly change the order of their songs on their own, and even if someone accidentally recorded a creepy video over a movie on a VHS, you can't just get the overwritten material back. At which point did I acquire these false memories and how and why? How many of my other memories are false, too?
>>14668556 Thanks, but no. Like I said it was an atmospheric adventure game with a lot of text. No action to speak of, as far as I can remember. Funnily enough, finding that game a couple weeks ago is what reminded me of it.
I remember watching a music video on MTV years ago with my sis. In the video there was some white guy who had dreads and was dressed in a jumpsuit (?) and he was being bullied in school by the jocks and was eventually drowned by them. I can't remember if he lived it or not. It was maybe a korn or slipknot song but my sister has no recollection
>>14658449 I have one of these, just something I could nver find again, and also a story about how plastic memory can actually be.
First, what I cannot track down.
I used to watch a lot of PBS and ETV what I was a kid. I was always a night owl and having had my parents divorce when I was young just made it that much easier to stay up undetected.
Mainly I watched ETV because they had some really weird stuff on at night. Old Twilight Zone episodes, Read All About It, and stuff like Outerscope. The shows were usually sort of creepy but in that "Kid born in 1982 watching weird 60's70's stuff" and not that there was something off about them.
Anyhow, there was this little show of a bunch of shorts that had some cartoon, some live action. It was interesting, and it was newer too, probably late 80's.
Anyhow, as one segment ended the screen went dark and a plastic baby, hanging by twisted phone cords with bloody cuts all over it's body appeared.
At the bottom of the screen it said "1-900-CUT-BABY) and played a weird organ music. No voice, no movement, just this faded in to the screen, lasted for WAY too long, and faded out and the next segment started.
Two segments later some words popped onto the screen.
"We understand that we may have offended some viewers with the 1-900-CUT-BABY segment. We offer the following as an apology."
They fucking ran it again.
I was terrified, but my response to being scared by things on the television, especially at night, was to freeze up and watch it. I suppose that's some leftover animal instinct. If I move it might make it chase me, and I have to watch it to make sure it isn't coming at me.
Now, as an adult, I get the joke and I think it's pretty funny. I'd lov to find that show again, but as a kid it scared the beejeepers out of me.
The only other segment I rmember was a little animation talking about life in the future, and your recreation and stuff. "A day in the life" sort of thing
>>14668915 Part of the future cartoon bit had him jumping into a recreation pool with other people, ad they splashed around as the camera panned away. The narrator explained what the thing was called. Something like Sensory Experience something, and the initials spelt out S.E.X. on the screen.
So that's that. I've tried searching Cut Baby and all I find is some jackass going on about how me misses the way Subway restaurants used to cut their bread.
Second story about the plasticity of memory coming up.
When I was about three I used to have a craft book that was from a show I liked. Turns out the first episode aired a few years later than I thought it did. My mom remembers the book but claims It must have been lost in a move. I still wonder where the hell that book went.
>>14658449 Not necessarily paranormal, but my grandmother had a huge box of old sixties and seventies Mad Magazines and some comic books. I used to reread them EVERY. TIME. I. VISITED HER. even though I'd read them all a thousand times. Anyway, there was, I remember very clearly, a Wonder Woman comic called Wonder Woman Battles The Elements. And there were four women: Earth, Air, Water and Fire. They had cool costumes and she had to fight each one. I've been looking for it online, any mention of it ever and I can't find it anywhere.
A creepypasta about a wolf called old rorshak or something where he terrorized a bunch of towns and eventually got cornered by hunters, injured, then pulled himself to some rock with a shittin of dead wolves.
i vividly remember putting my hand in the organs of an live person. i remember the smells and the texture, and the immense heat coming from the body and my hands covered in blood. This obviously could of never happened but for some reason i remember it so clearly. Maybe i was a surgeon in a past life or something.
>>14668925 So, when I was about 15-16 (I remember as I wasn't driving yet) I was at a friend's house for the weekend. We got to talking a bit about old Saturday morning cartoons that we had enjoyed as kids.
I told him I remembered one on ABC that started off with a bunch of kids with picket signs walking circles around a treehouse chanting "Kalabra Jot! Kalabrat Jot!"
Then in side the treehouse was a giant green caterpillar that looked much like the one from Alice in Wonderland. As he spoke to the audience he would sometimes tell us that we could contact him at "Dot Dot Jubba Dot Dot" and these real human hands in white gloves would make a weird liquid flapping sound at the bottom of the screen and write messages.
One thing that has bothered me is that New Zealand is on the wrong spot on the map. I dont know when this changed but it cant have been too many years ago. I know a lot of other people have noticed this as well. Look it up on google and see if it seems wrong to you.
>>14668960 He remembered it too and we'd talk about it on and off for years. Once I was out on my own it would pop up into my head and I'd spend hours looking it up online. "Kolabra jot, kolabra jot" I tried spelling it different ways, I tried looking through a list of every ABC animated series from that time and never found anything.
I'd forget about it and months or a year later it would pop up into me head and I would look again.
I didn't find out what the show actually was until about 12 years later.
Here it is, and you can see how insanely off my memories were.
>>14667983 http://www.bcdb.com/cartoon_story/71102-Max_The_Cat.html http://www.delphisfilms.com/4-productions.php?xlang=fr&xmode=8&xid=131&xtri=1 I saw it too on treehouse years ago, was very cute, trying to find a video of it as well, but above link is proof it existed anyways!
I've noticed that the iPod shuffle function isn't really so shuffled. I think it generates a shuffle list dependent on the song you start shuffle on. I've noticed several times that the same songs will play in a row if I don't change what's on my phone.
As a kid, I remember several times dreaming of events that later happened. I can't remember all of them, but I do remember one specifically.
I walk up a brown wooden staircase with close walls that were a tannish brown color. There was one of those cheap wooden banisters on the right. The door at the top was a cheap wooden one with a brass knob on the left. As I walk up and open the door, I enter a room with a very specific light on the wall: a replica of an old street lamp. The light is turned on and I walk into the room, seeing a couch on the left, a small chair underneath the lamp, and a book shelf full of kids toys on the right. It's the that I notice two friends of mine are with me, a brother and sister who lived near my dad who I played with often. The boy then pulled the game crossfire from the shelf and we started playing it.
Three days after having that dream, I visited my friends' house for the first time, and that is exactly what happened. I had never been there before and yet everything was exactly as I saw in my dream.
There was a book I really liked, about twin siblings, a boy and a girl I think, and there was something far off in the desert (like a sphere or something?) calling them to it. Also there was a big shaggy dog, I think.
Can't find anybody who knows what it was called, thus far.
>>14661769 There are times I feel déjà vu and I can predict what will happen - at least after déjà vu I have the vivid memory of remembering (hope this makes sense) what would happen. Is this just very predictable events? Or my ability to pick up on fine details and make accurate predictions subconsciously? Or is my brain fucking up the perception of time and the order in which I experience things?
>>14661895 >>14661924 Can you create some sort of physical proof that you predicted these things before they happened? You need to find some way to prove to yourself that you didn't subconsciously revise your own memory to implant the idea you were predicting things when really you weren't.
>>14658449 Sometimes I have dreams that are so vivid I end up remembering them as if they were videos instead. And since perception of time is crappy when sleeping, I end up remembering these as if they were films/games I watched/played a long time ago. At least that's my theory.
There's a space opera I remember watching years ago but I just can't find it anywhere. I don't even remember the name but I think it was Australian. It was about, I think, some young people in space? Teenagers or something. There were wormholes too. And a holodeck type room with a beach. It's been bothering me for a long time but I just can't seem to find any trace that it ever existed.
>>14668296 Are you sure the game you're describing wasn't a ps1 game? Because the plot is similar to the first nightmare creatures, where the zombie vampire mummy thing you play as is the lesser "evil" of all the shit that got summoned to the city
I remember driving really fast at night down a highway, in a car from the 70's while expertly manouvring between other cars. Thing is neither I nor family or friends own such a car. And I can not drive.
I remember my uncle used to play this one PS1 or Dreamcast game where the protagonist was this girl with short blonde hair who hunted aliens or mutants or something, i dont remember what they were, but you started on a desert and then ended up in some kind of moon base or laboratory, i remember this game because the plot was like, really fucked up, small baby flies were enemies, one of the bosses was this giant dog thing that chases you and had a vacuum on its mouth and if you didnt outrun it or shot him enough he would eventually eat or stomp you, crunching/splashing sounds and all.
Then there was this other boss that was a some sort of giant thing that made baby noises, and if you shot him enough in the belly or head or arms they would FALL OFF, it also spat acid or something like that, in that same place just a little before you entered the boss room there were these enemies that were like little babies that had an horrible laugh, and if you stepped on them they exploded.
This was in 1995-1997 i think, it was definitely in 199X something, i was 9 years old at the time and i was scared shitless of that game, i want to replay this game because thanks to the girl of that game i discovered masturbation kek.
Asked my uncle and he told me all the games he used to play were PS1 games: Resident Evil 1-3, Dino Crisis 1-2, Silent Hill, Alone in the Dark, Hercules, Jersey Devil, Bugs@Taz, Sheep Dog n Wolf, Darkstalkers, none of these are like the game i remember he used to play.
>>14661769 Pretty frequently, I get deja vu that occurs exactly as a dream did days, months or years before the actual event happens. That is to say, i've finished people's sentences or changed my own sentences in a conversation because I already knew the full content of what was going to be said. I had already dreamed it. It really creeps people out. Understandably of course. It makes them feel as though their life is planned out
It started off at like an airport or something,and you were in the entrance (everything was in black and white) I can't really remember much but there was a sports store that had golf clubs and a guy who sold tickets (not sure) and a janitor.
It was really creepy and I want to play it so bad.
This happens to me. Every. Fucking. Day. If i try to focus on the song it simply dissapears (i hear them when i'm ALMOST asleep but not completely). It freaks me out, those songs definitely don't exist.
There was this game i played when i was 4~7 i think, it was on my dad's computer and it was called "Murder K", i played it A LOT but i never managed to go through the first levels, i would usually play the same first levels again and again.
I only remember a scene where your character (was like a black humanoid with long head i think) was running through a hall, then you had to jump over some kind of wall and after that i can't remember anything.
I asked my dad if he remembered the game and he said he doesn't knows what the fuck i am talking about
I regularly have dreams that I believe to be continuations of dreams I've had before (like a new episode of a tv show), but when I wake up I realize it was actually the first time I've dreamt about them.
Op again, I'm honestly surprised and happy the thread is still alive, you guys all have some really interesting stories. anyways, since this seems to have become a thing where people ask for help finding said lost shows/games, I would like to see if anyone here can remember having seen the one I described in one of my earlier posts. the two protagonists were like 10 year old kids, a boy and a girl, and in the intro they were like holding hands and walking out of some super brown ugly ass attic and into the sky and some kind of thing like the THX VWEEEE noise would play only made from different instruments, like it was some sort of inspirational thing that was supposed to sound like ascension. anyways, I think they both had brown hair, although maybe the girl was blond. I remember in one of the episodes the boy meets some huge guy who kind of looked like hagrid but he was like, a swamp fisherman and he saved the boy from some huge ass spiny fish, of which you were only shown the fins. It seemed to have a pretty low-ish budget. there was also some kind of like were-wolf chick or something who I think fed the kid his own flesh or something at some point to heal his ass, and some crazy elven thief guy. I think at some point before all that the boy got separated from the girl who ended up with some kind of evil queen or something who she doesnt know is evil but she lives in a really pointy castle. thats pretty much all I can remember, I was 3 or 4 at the time so I'm surprised I even recall this much. also, I got it on vhs, so it would be pretty old now. anyone remember seeing a show like this?
>>14672352 OP again, I've had this happen too, its really weird. like I can remember what happened in the previous dreams really clearly, but I can't remember ever actually having dreamed them. like I dreamed about having dreamed about something.
>>14672349 Op again, this is /x/, but we'll help you as much as we can nonetheless. I have no information on this game, but I would quite like to play it, it sounds great. ugh, I'm just gonna change my name to OP
Remember a movie that I watched frequently as a kid. There was a dummy that would speak to this boy and would try to convince him to do terrible things. Thrre was a door in.. a cellar maybe? It ended up turning into some kind of vampire thing and his family ended up burning it. It was long before Goosebumps.
I've been playing bass for 7 years (i'm 20 now) and i'm studying music composition in university, i would really like to master this phenomena in my brain because i really like the songs i hear in my mind
When I was 4 or 5 I stepped on something on our carpet in the basement and my foot got fucked up really bad and I bled all over the place and fucked up the entire carpet. I remember I was too scared to tell my parents that I ruined the carpet so I just let the blood sit there and dry after the bleeding stopped. Around that time we were selling the house and some people came in that wanted to buy the house but didn't because of the creepy ass blood stained carpet. I remember my parents being mad at me for this because they had to replace the carpet to get anyone to buy the house. When I ask them about it today they have no recollection of it but I remember it so vividly.
I remember watching some fucked up puppet show about foxes and shit. In the episode i remember there was a evil giant weird black bird that stole one of the foxes eyes, put them in a cage. The voices sounded so fucking real, like they were actually scared. I still remember the bird telling the foxes eyes to dance, and the eyes started bobbing up and down. The fox then told his fox friend "My eyes are in a cave. I can see him."
There was this show I used to watch as a kid, which I had THOUGHT was some kind of weird 90's mlp spinoff. I've been looking all over for it, and concluded that I must have dreamt it.
it was a cartoon about "merponies" which were horses with colorful mermaid tails. The main character was called "Radical Star" and had this punky jem-esque riot girl look, with a purple star on her face and green/pink mohawk . They all lived in these enormous pink underwater caves (lol vaginas) and there were some characters, like the princess, these two obnoxious twin ponies who finished each others sentences, and the evil witch pony. The episode I remember the best was when Radical Star traveled through a long tunnel, to go and find the witch, and to make a deal with her, to gain power. In the end I think she decided it was wrong and left.
>>14658449 i think i do, i have memories of a game i played when i was little many years ago but i'm completely unable to find any proof of its existence. It was basically Mortal Kombat, but the characters were only Shokans, you had Goro, Sheeva and Kintaro and many other shokans all dressed with different armors.
I remember one video game I played...basically your little lady friend gets kidnapped by some dark force when you're young, you learn elemental magic, and you have to counter specific enemy's elements with the appropriate element. It's a little bittersweet, because your journey takes you to your adult life, you don't actually see your friend again until years later. She was named after some sort of flower. But I can't for the life of me remember the name or find any evidence of the game.
I swear I remember seeing a movie from the 80s as a kid involving a succubus marrying a kid's father. I also swear that the kid killed the succubus in the same way as in the South Park episode by playing a song backward on his radio. I can't find any evidence of this movie ever existing.

as a kid, my family would sometimes rent movies we'd seen in theaters from blockbuster. The thing is, I'd swear up and down to my family that there were missing scenes and sometimes alternate endings. They told me I was crazy.
Imagine my relief when I discovered right-wing Christian groups had threatened to boycott Blockbuster unless they edited their films to their satisfaction.
ever since I was a teenager I occasionally get the taste and texture of a food in my mouth that I remember hating when I was a baby, but have yet to run into the food in my cognizant life and am unable to identify it. When it pops into my mind though its so fucking vivid.
>>14661895 I kinda get the same thing, except when I have an episode of déjà vu, I always feel a powerful, indescribable urge to continue with my "predicted" motions, though like another anon said, probably just my perception of time derping out on me.
At the end of the movie Shrek, when that medley of all those old songs is playing and all the characters are dancing about, there's a part where the three little pigs spin on their heads.
When my brother and I saw it in movie theatres it was monkeys.
When we watched it at home for the first time, we both turned to each other in surprise when the pigs came on. We'd never discussed this before that day and we still bring it up to each other sometimes. Never met another person who didn't think this sounded crazy and I've looked on the net too. Dunno.
I used to have an old picture of an apparently slightly older me and 3 other people I-don't-know-who-are-supposed-to-be (An adult women, two younger ones and a young guy who strangely was very similar to me). I found said picture by accident when I was looking in some old boxes in the attic, since then I kept the thing hidden behind my books, and I remember that I looked at the thing for hours from time to time, one day the picture vanished with no trace of it anywhere. I asked for said picture to everyone in the house without any positive result. The funny thing is that the frame in which I placed it was disappeared too... along with its box (It was an Illuminated Picture Frame), but the rest of the pictures I found originally on the box along it were still on the same album in which I placed them
>>14658449 one time there was a fictional tv show where a kid dared another kid to eat a cheeseburger he found underneath his bed in his super messy room and he died and became a ghost and the show i think was about their relationship with living kid and ghost kid. but i haven't seen it in like 15+ years i think, although i'd like to find it again. maybe it was a pilot episode i saw or maybe just a scene from a sketch show or something.
I'm not sure I'd call this a reality glitch or whatever, maybe a case of overactive imagination and mixing things up? Before "The Mask" was released to video or DVD after it finished its run in theaters, I could have sworn that at some point near the end, Tina wore the Mask and turned into a super-sexy cartoon version of herself and gave Stanley a huge kiss before taking the Mask off and tossing it. I was confused and disappointed when I watched it again and realized this was not the case.
>>14672621 I've dreamed about songs, sometimes with lyrics sometimes without, but I have no musical talent, and the songs that I do remember upon waking seldom seem as cool as they did in my dreams. At least you might be able to make your dream music a reality someday if you keep studying.
When I was fifteen, my mother and I accompanied an elderly friend to a hospital in Seattle. I remember the long car ride from our small orchard valley in eastern Washington, through the Cascades; looking up at tall buildings of downtown Seattle and gray skies, and all the people. Before this, I had never been to Seattle, so I was just a small town kid gawking at big city bustle.
I remember taking our elderly friend to the hospital, looking out the windows of a waiting room at construction sites, amazed and wishing I lived there. I remember the typical magazines and children's toys, like that one where you make wooden round blocks on brightly colored metal move in spirals.
A few years after that, I asked my mother and friend about the trip. They both were confused, and denied that it ever took place. I couldn't understand how that could be. It would be one thing if I was a small child when it happened, but I was a teenager at the time. And neither of them were the kind of people to troll like that.
It still weirds me out to this day. I went on a senior field trip there, and then to eventually visit with friends. Downtown Seattle was just like what I remembered, with the streets ridiculous to navigate and the constant light patter of rain, with people not even bothering with umbrellas. I wish I knew one way or another if that actually happened or if I conflated it with previous trips to Auburn Super Mall.
I remember an old in between segment on Teletoon. It was about a bunch of smiley faces (almost like Pacman) going up and down escalators. I used to giggle at it all the time as a kid and my mom thought it was adorable. Now, she has no idea what I'm talking about and I can find every other segment I can think of but that one. Anyone know?
>>14668975 >>14669736 I seem to remember there being a site documenting this misremembering phenomenon called either 'The New Zealand Syndrome' or 'The Sri Lanka Syndrome', but, ironically, it seems to have vanished off the face of the Earth.
>>14675132 The Sri Lanka syndrome is lame - Sri Lanka is shown within a few miles of India, whereas New Zealand moved from Oceania to boating distance of Australia. Sri Lanka is nothing compared to New Zealand....
I remember splitting my lip like part of it hanging off and running crying in an old apartment I once lived in when I was like 3. I can't still state the layout of the apartment correctly but my parents don't remember it.
Actually, just remembered something. When I was young (9-10?), I ventured up to the second floor (3rd for Muricans) into my Mum's room. It was the only room on that floor, literally at the top of the stairs.
I remember sitting on her chair looking through her tarot(?) cards like you would do with pokemons, just basically fucking with them and trying to find the coolest picture and whatnot.
She came in, caught me, and flipped out saying never to touch the cards again because I could set the house on fire and make bad things happen. Asked her about it in January and she denies it through and through.
a read a comic hear once called "the forging" or something it was about the creation of earth and had lots of greek mythology and alien mercenaries and at one point noah built a ladder of semen need it in my life again
>>14658449 i remember a puppet tv show where these two characters cut the earth in half with a knife. i remember my parents wouldn't let me watch it but i saw it a couple of times some how. it use to give me nightmares bigggggg time.
>>14658449 a friend and i have a shared memory of checking out a porn shop that was basement level and had five or six glory holes. we talked with the owner for a couple minutes. we both distinctly remember it but no one else has heard of the place, ever saw the place, and we cant find any evidence it was ever there.
>>14658449 Your brain makes up stuff ALL DAY LONG, you may not know it, but it does.
Think about how often you see your nose while you go throughout your day, possibly a couple times in fleeting glances. How does it know what to replace that "missing info" area with? It just takes some of the image from your other eye and kinda fudges it in there. Now, this isn't that big of a deal to anyone most of the time, but think about the amount of "false data" that is generated over the course of a lifetime. This could account for things like incorrect directions, streets that you swear were on a map but aren't there now, etc, etc.
Now, another thing many do not know is that the optic nerves that connect to your cornea go all the way to the front of your eye, and that is where your blind spot is. (Google finding your blind spot for instructions on how to find it) This spot is sometimes near the edge of your peripheral vision, and causes "hallucinations" or false sightings/presences in your mind. It also causes a lot of accidents where you glance both ways and see no cars coming, but as soon as you pull out a car is there.
I remember a movie I watched on Betamax back when I was a kid and I loved dinosaurs. It was a cheesy B/W movie that we had bought used from the local video store when they clearanced all of their Beta tapes in favor of VHS. However, I remember a lot of scenes in that movie that were not actually in the movie upon later viewings. I remember them tying a rock to the T-Rex's tail and rolling it down a hill, and I loved that scene - however, on subsequent viewings it was no longer in the movie??? (there were other scenes like that in that movie too, but I';ve forgotten all of them now that it has been 25+ years, lol)
Tried to make a post from my phone through data collection. 4Chan said I'd been banned for "spamming." Was in a thread on /mlp/ apparently which I have never accessed before checking why I was banned. The post was some Russian guy. The thread HAD been spammed by all these Russian communist propaganda pictures. How does this work? The ban only said it was that one post and it was only for a couple days so I couldn't contest it through the form and was too lazy to go onto the IRC. Anyone better with this kind of stuff want to tell me what happened?
>>14658449 >inb4 "anon you are crazy" Some 12 or so years ago I was watching iSat one night and I watched this documentary on a photographer. He made art with people, making them pose and shit. EVERYONE WAS COMPLETELY NAKED IN THE DESERT. In one shot a little girl (naked) appears and asks "Can I be art too?" And everyone just acts very nicely and she is let into the human sculpture. It was really fucking weird and I can't ever remember the name of it.
I knew the New Zealand thing, that's come up before here on /x/. I seriously remember it being on the other side of Australia, and I'm not the only one. But then again, I'm an Amerifat, what do I know?
The 'stein-stain' thing is super weird for me, because I remember a third, more different thing. I remember the bear family having a name that was different from that of the authors, 'Bearenstein'. Because, like, bears and wordplay and shit. So I apparently can't remember anything right.
But then there's one thing that can't be attributed to faulty memory. This came up a lot in the last thread like this that I was in, but I remember Nelson Mandela dieing. Like, back in '05 or thereabouts. That's how I learned who Nelson Mandela was, because of the news coverage. It was mentioned a time or two that some 24-hour news broadcast channel (CNN) got a false tip about his death and reported it before confirming. Anyone know if that's true?
>>14659959 the fact that BerenSTAIN looks deeply wrong to me, somehow, perhaps suggests that the brain really, really wants to read it as STEIN. Maybe that is why many people saw it that way. BERENSTEIN has a nice rhythm to it, it's symmetrical and easy to read.
Or maybe it's a parallel universe thing bc I do indeed remember it as "steen". If it had said "stain", my child brain would have read it that way, or so I thought.
>>14676722 if you know how to spell a word you don't read it again
>first time reading it >berenstain... hmm... okay well I guess that means berenstein >second time only glancing at the title from then on your brain ONLY saved berenstein and you never read that word actively again
