It can be something you did, used to do, experienced, witnessed, suspected, or felt. Good or bad. Ordinary or extraordinary. Alone or shared with someone else.

Talk about something that you KNOW is true/was correct/really happened, but NO ONE believes you when you talk about it. Or almost no one.

I used to be a really amazing singer. Pretty much no one I've met since high school (when my voice was in its best shape) believes this, because my voice and breathing are now in such terrible shape that I sound like absolute hell. I haven't sung in front of people in years because I hate how I sound and I can't take people's reactions or lack thereof. I wonder if I should give up any dreams of doing it well again and just start saying "I can't sing" and be done with it.

I was in choir in middle school and could sing bass through alto (even sang soprano for a spell), but then I kept going through puberty and stopped singing. I know the feeling.

I'm getting better at singing again though, it just takes a lot of practice. I still have friends who refuse to believe I can carry a tune.

I'm allergic to salmon. My only symptom? Shooting back pains. It has gotten exponentially better since I was 13 or 14, but I remember being in elementary and middle school lying on the floor in agony because I ate salmon - my parents thought it was some silly excuse to get out of eating it, but I think salmon is delicious! I've mentioned it to doctors before, and the closest they can come to explaining it is heartburn, but it isn't, I've had that before and this is way more localized and tons more painful.

I can eat a little farmed salmon now (not wild, even though it is the most delicious) and be ok, so it isn't worth the time it'd take to figure out what the heck is going on between me and salmon. My family still doesn't believe me, though.

Mercury? Going by the wild vs. farmed.

So I had an out-of-body experience when I was six. I thought it was pretty awesome at the time. I'mma tell you the story now.

The way my house was set up, there wasn't any room at the back door for shoes and coats. You went down to the basement and that's where all the stuff was. So I'm sitting on the bottom steps, tying my shoes (still learning how, at that point) when all of a sudden I'm across the basement, watching myself tie my shoes. I can see the top of my head and my fingers working. Freaked me out, because I didn't think there was a mirror down here... and why can't I see my face? So I look around a bit, then other me on the steps looks up and our eyes meet. Next instant I'm back in my body, trying to figure out what just went down, and my shoes are tied.

Hasn't happened since. I wish it would, it was a neat feeling.

I have two things!

I used to sing opera and I wanted to go to julliard when I was in high school or be a broadway star. I could hit my notes like nobody's business. Nobody believes me now because I'm years out of practice and when we go to karaoke I warble like a dying cat. :D.

Also when I was between the ages of 3-7 I used to swear our kitchen was possessed by demons, my mother didn't help by saying the boogeyman was in there. I used to have horrible nightmares about the chandelier in the kitchen and see/hear the strangest things coming from it if I would go downstairs at night. I distinremover ember having to leave with my mother at like 4am and hearing screaming coming
From the light. I felt like I was in the amnityville horror. These were amplified by the fact my bedroom was directly above it. I would never go into the kitchen alone after dark without being absolutely terrified. It wasn't until they remodeled and got rid of the chandelier when I was in second grade that I truly felt safe in my house.
PS: What the hell phone typing. I distinctly remember. Damnit.

2 years ago the radiator in my room would make a random bang noise. I think it was trapped air, but it would happen ever 5 - 10 mins. this only happened at night and lasted about 2 months. I didn't sleep that whole time but was in that 1/2 awake stupor.

I never felt so rested

I was in the car with my best friend, and we were at an intersection with four stop signs. A loose balloon floated across the street at a height and pace as though it was being held by a kid. We sat and watched it cross the street, waiting for the wind to take it, but it never did. It floated further down the road and disappeared around the side of a building.

the only thing I could think of to say was "wow, that balloon didn't even stop at the stop sign."

he responded completely deadpan with "I know, right? What a jerk."

I don't think anyone either of us have told the story to has ever believed us. :(

sounds like it was filled with helium, but most of it dissipated giving it only enough lift to float above the grown at creepy child ghost height and and it followed some light breeze.

That or its a ghost, which ever helps you sleep at night

When I was a teenager, I had constant weird shit happen in my room. Posters would suddenly be torn off the walls, Stuff would be moved around or out of nowhere falll, and once when I was on the phone, suddenly I heard a huge BANG behind me, and turned around to discover that my cds which had been resting for a couple of days in the same position on a shelf, were suddenly upended on the other side of the room.

I can see better in the dark than most people. No one believes me until they run into something I perceive as obvious, but even then it's brief. I'm not sure why I can do this, but eh, it's useful.

I definitely didn't invent them, but I was probably one of the first people to create Motion Comics.

To all comics fans in the universe: I'm sorry I was involved in this pioneering. I was in college and needed the money.
