Do you believe in ghosts and other related phenomena?
This was prompted by a dream I had this morning. The details are trivial (especially given the random nature of some dreams) but the gist of it is that someone I know had just died in a horrible fashion but I can't find their body. As I'm looking around, two clock radios in the room both start making that buzzing/static noise that occurs sometimes with incoming phone calls/text messages, and also similar to how the ghosts communicated in the movie White Noise. I realize that I don't have my cell phone on me and there isn't one in the immediate vicinity so I immediately assume that it's the person's ghost trying to contact me.
I wake up right after with a very distinct feeling of fear. I don't know if I woke up because of the fear or other reasons, but it got me thinking.
I've never personally seen a ghost, despite living in a city with a semi-famous ghost, however I have interacted with a few people that claim to have seen or even talked to ghosts. One such person was an older lady who used to drive my sister and I home from school; she was never one to lie or make up stories yet she claimed there was a ghost living in her attic (the ghost lived there before her) that she would talk to occasionally.
Stories about encountering ghosts or things of that nature are also encouraged.
Semi-related; when the movie version of Silent Hill came out (heavy fog plays into at least the first game, I haven't played the rest), that night, a lot of my city was covered in a very heavy fog. The best idea, of course, is to take the opportunity to visit the cemetery that was across the street from where we were. Despite being on a major road next to a shopping mall this cemetery manages to remain very dark. Nothing actually happened but just the coincidence of the fog was very creepy.
