  1. this was relayed to me recently. i know some of the people involved.

    a guy (we'll call him Bob) who works in an office of a chiropractor/energy healer/whatever (will call Mary) wants to go to vegas to celebrate his chinese guru's 60th birthday. i was told 60 is a big bday for the chinese (dont know if this is true, also dont know what kind of guru the guy is, prob something in the alternative healing world, doesnt really matter).

    so Bob goes to Mary, "hey, i am going to need a few days off to go to vegas for this thing." Mary immediately and impulsively replies "no". she said she had no reason to say no, other than when he asked, she saw a big black X over him or something. so now Bob is in a bit of a predicament. he does believe that Mary does have some intuitive ability, but also would like to go to vegas, as this celebration is very important to him.

    later on, Bob is at home and talking on the phone with a friend. he is explaining the situation and not sure what he should do. while he is explaining that he would like to go to vegas, but is a least a little concerned as well, Bob's mother comes over to him and shows him a notebook. Bob immediately tells his friend that he is not going to Vegas.

    apparently, Bob's mother had been to a psychic (not Mary) about a year prior and the psychic had told Bob's mother that on about a year her son was going to plan a trip to vegas and she should make sure he doesn't go. the mother, i am guessing as a sort of test to see if the psychic was actually on to something, did not mention this info to Bob at all during the year.

    besides the obvious question of why is Bob living at home with his mom, thoughts? crazy coincidence?

    It was completely straight forward. Unless you mean that you are confused as to how people are so crazy.
  6. You can't cheat death. It will be like final destination if he does not go.

    Mary does more than "crack backs". and obv if it was just the one person saying it, it would be a lot less interesting.

    On an unrelated note, last night when I got home from watching the bball games, I took my dogs out to go pee. While I was standing in my backyard, a ghost carrying a crystal skull wandered past me. PHENOMENAL.
  10. If Bob believes other human beings can see into the future than he probably wouldn't be able to enjoy the time anyway because he'd be waiting for something terrible to happen to him.

    so u are on the crazy coincidence team? was just relating a mildly nteresting story. or do u think that i am just making the whole story up?

    also in a slight hijack of my own thread:

    so i am walking down the street and have just crossed a crosswalk. there are decent amt of people about and i notice a guy walking perpendicular to me from right. i am paced to cross in front of him by 2 ft maybe.

    all of a sudden there is barking and a pit bull jumping up at me. guy had it and another dog on leashes. it was on his right side, so slightly obscured from my view. it bit around my right hand pocket (hands were in pockets) and didnt get hold of anything.

    guy quickly grabbed it and yelled at it. said sorry to me, i said "its ok." and kept walking. should i have shot it?

    objection, relevancy?

  14. Maybe bob should/shouldn't waste time trying out for X-Factor. The winner gets their own Vegas show.
  15. i was under the impression that he will be able to go to vegas in the future, but this vegas trip was ill-advised.

    i dont get some of the responses, i am quite confident that these events occurred. obv it is possibly a coincidence and on its own, it would be basically nothing. but other first hand experiences have made me think differently.

  16. thread was just what came to mind because it had to do with someones mom being stupid about supposedly paranormal activity when it's obv not.

    psychic predicts a guy will plan a trip to vegas? obv sorceress.

    my gf's mom goes a to psychic pretty regularly and it's just painful to hear the bullshit she comes back with.
  17. figured this would be a good place to post this old favorite ..

  18. I think your friend should not go to Vegas.

    Ever since I was like 12-13 and dismissed religion as being just fairy tales, I have dismissed all notions of ghosts, psychic powers, afterlife. I figured all that stuff cant possibly exist.

    Well the older I get, the more I am starting to believe in ghosts, psychic powers and realize that overall we dont understand at all how this universe really works. . . . so how can we know that some humans dont have special powers regarding ghosts/afterlife/feeling the future etc. Some humans have super muscle-memory (pro athletes), some have super math-logic (nobel winning scientist), so why cant some be connected to the universe in ways that others cannot comprehend.


    My gf's mom goes to see a psychic a couple times per year. Unless her mom is trolling me, the psychic has been dead on in regards to me , in regards to me and my gf and in regards to my gf's sister. And its not just general, vague stuff . I know about fake-psychics and the general 'reads' they do as they glean information off their clients etc etc. This stuff was much more specific and to be honest it freaked me out.


    Please update once he goes / or not

    not that it will change anything for you, but it is a bit more involved than that.

  22. Why did you need to change their names in the story? Does anyone here actually know these people?
  23. when i started i didnt know how detailed i would get in the story, so figured why not change the names. it prob wouldnt have mattered tho, you are right.
