PARANORMAL INSECT ENCOUNTER CANNOT EXPLAIN ZimplyParanormal posted:11/11/2013 2:59:57 PM I HAVE HAD MANY PARANORMAL THINGS HAPPEN TO ME THROUGHOUT MY LIFE, INCLUDING SEEING UFOS THAT FOLLOW ME HOME AND SENSING A FAMILY MEMBER DEAD TO FIND OUT LATER OF THEIR PASSING. I HAVE SEEN MANY APPARITIONS AND HEARD MANY THINGS, THAT IF IT WASNT FOR MY DOGS, I WOULD HAVE THOUGHT I IMAGINED MOST OF THEM. WILD ANIMALS DON'T USUALLY FEAR ME AND DOGS RARELY BARK AT ME WHEN THEY SEE ME UNLESS I AM ACCOMPANIED. LATELY I HAVE BEEN MORE OPEN TO THE PARANORMAL SINCE, ITS JUST TOO MANY THINGS THAT HAVE HAPPENED TO ME TO IGNORE! BUT THIS ONE WAS EVEN WEIRDER THAN THOSE (IF THAT COULD BE POSSIBLE) SINCE I HAVE NEVER HEARD OF AN INSECT PARANORMAL ENCOUNTER, NOR CAN I FIND ANY ONLINE. I HAVE HEARD OF INSECTS HOARDING TOGETHER IN A HAUNTED HOUSE IN LARGE QUANTITIES, BUT NOT A SINGLE AND UNSUAL LARGE INSECT BEHAVE THIS WAY. THE STORY GOES AS FOLLOW: ABOUT A WEEK AGO, WHILE FOOD SHOPPING, I HAD AN ARGUMENT WITH A FAMILY MEMBER OVER THE PHONE REGARDING A TRIVIAL SITUATION. I FELT UNFAIRLY ACCUSED BY MY FAMILY MEMBER AND OFFENDED, I THOUGH IT WAS BLOWN OUT OF PROPORTION AND THERE WAS NO WAY OF REASONING IT SEEMED, SO I LET IT GO AND DECIDED TO GO OVER THE HOUSE AFTER I WAS DONE FOOD SHOPPING. AS I APPROACHED THE ENTRANCE THERE WAS THIS HUGE BLACK INSECT IN THE ENTRANCE TO THE DOOR. THE AREA WAS SOME WHAT LIGHTED. THE INSECT WAS ABOUT 5 TO 7 INCHES LONG AND 1.5 INCHES THICK, IT WAS SHAPED LIKE A CIGAR WITH INSECT LEGS. NEEDLESS TO SAY, THIS BUG WAS UNUSUALLY BIG AND THICK, I MIGHT HAVE SEEN THIS BUG ONCE BEFORE. DO NOT LIKE BUGS AT ALL, UNLESS THEY ARE BUTTERFLIES, BUT I STILL WONT TOUCH THEM. I LIVE IN A WARM CLIMATE, SO BIG BUGS ARE COMMON PLACE. MY FAMILY MEMBER HAS A BIG GERMAN SHEPHERD, AND IT BARKS AT EVERYTHING AND EVERYBODY, BUT IT DOESN'T USUALLY BARK AT ME. SO I CALL MY RELATIVES NAME OUT LOUD (HE WAS EXPECTING ME), HOPING THAT AT LEAST THE DOG WOULD HEAR, BUT NOTHING! I LOOK THROUGH THE WINDOW, BUT IT WAS AS IF NO ONE WAS HOME EVEN THOUGH THE LIGHT WAS ON INSIDE AND THE HOUSE WAS COMPLETELY SILENT, NO TV OR MUSIC, BUT I KNEW FOR A FACT THAT HE WAS THERE, THE HOUSE IS A ONE LEVEL AND A BIT SMALL. SINCE STRANGELY HE OR THE DOG COULD NOT HEAR ME. SO I TRY TO STRETCH MY ARM AROUND AND SQUEEZE THROUGH THE ENTRANCE ENOUGH TO BE ABLE TO QUICKLY RING THE DOOR BELL BUTTON WITHOUT GETTING TOO CLOSE TO THE BUG, THE BUG WAS ON THE FLOOR OPPOSITE TO ME. AS I AM TRYING TO REACH OUT TO RING THE DOOR BELL, TO MY SURPRISING HORROR THE BUG STARTS TO SCREAM LIKE IN AGONY OR FRANTIC FEAR (LIKE AN ALIEN IN A HORROR MOVIE THAT IS GETTING KILLED AND IS SCREECHING IN AGONY WITH A HI PITCHED SOUND), AND THE BUG STARTED JUMPING AROUND 5 INCHES HIGH AND BANGING /HITTING ITSELF ON THE WALL BEHIND IT OR OPPOSITE TO ME, SENSELESS LIKE A CRAZY PERSON IN AN INSANE ASYLUM. SO IMMEDIATELY BACKED OFF AND THE INSECT STOPPED THE CRAZINESS, NEVER HEARD A BUG DO THAT IN MY LIFE!! SO I TRY AGAIN RING THE DOOR BELL AND THE BUG STARTS GOING INSANE AGAIN. I DID IT AROUND 3 MORE TIMES AND SAME THING, MEANWHILE I AM ALSO TRYING TO SHOO THE BUG OUT OF THERE, (STILL MY RELATIVE IS NOT ANSWERING THE DOOR OR THE DOG EVEN REACTING TO THAT HIGH PITCH SOUND FROM THE BUG!). SO I DECIDED TO STOP TRYING TO RING THE DOOR BELL AND START CALLING OUT MY RELATIVES NAME AND THE DOGS NAME WITH NO RESPONSE. WHILE I AM CALLING OUT I SEE THAT HUGE BUG COME TOWARD ME AND STAND DIRECTLY IN FRONT OF ME POSITIONED RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF ME AND WHERE I WAS STANDING, LIKE 6 INCHES TO A FOOT IN FRONT OF ME, LIKE IT WAS BLOCKING ME OR CONFRONTING ME, EVEN THOUGH THE BUG FELT THAT IT WAS ON AUTOMATION, LIKE A ROBOT, PROBABLY FROM BANGING ITSELF ON THE CEMENT WALL AND SCREAMING! THE BUG JUST STOOD THERE PERFECTLY STILL AND WOULD NOT MOVE, IT WAS LIKE IT WAS NOT EVEN CONSCIOUS AT THAT POINT, IT HAD NO FEAR OF ME, LIKE A ROBOT. SO I START BANGING ON THE WINDOW AND FINALLY I HEAR MY RELATIVE OPENING THE FRONT DOOR. I WARN HIM ABOUT THE BIG BUG IN FRONT OF ME AND HE KICKS IT INTO THE YARD/GRASS, LIKE 10 FEET OUT. THE BUG DID NOT REACT TO MY BROTHER, AND I THINK IT MADE A VERY LIGHT CRICKET CHIRP. I TOLD HIM ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED TO ME, BUT HE DIDN'T PAY ATTENTION TO ME. THE DOG STILL DID NOT BARK AT ME. I AM AT HIS HOUSE FOR ABOUT HALF AN HOUR, WHEN THE STEREO TURNS ON ALL BY ITSELF, NOT EVEN THE DOG WAS NEAR IT AT ALL. I ASKED HIM ABOUT THAT AND HE SAID THAT IT WAS PROBABLY THE SLEEPING MODE THAT KICKED IN, (HE DOESNT BELIEVE IN THE PARANORMAL). SO AFTER ARGUING FOR ABOUT AN HOUR, EVEN THOUGH AT THE END IT TURN OUT TO BE A GOOD THING, BECAUSE IT CLEARED SOME THINGS OUT BETWEEN US AND WE PARTED IN VERY GOOD TERMS. SO I AM ON MY WAY OUT THE DOOR AS HE IS OPENING THE DOOR FOR ME SO I CAN LEAVE, WHEN TO BOTH OF OUR SURPRISE, THAT EXACT HUGE BUG IS STANDING RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE DOOR/ENTRANCE AND EXACTLY IN THE MIDDLE OF THE DOOR, LIKE A ROBOT, NOT REACTING TO US OR THE DOG THERE, AS IF LIKE A ROBOT. THERE IS A SINGLE STEP UP TO THE DOOR AND THE BUG WAS ON THAT SINGLE STEP, AS IF IT WANTED TO BE AS CLOSE TO THE DOOR AS POSSIBLE. THE BUG WENT OUT OF ITS WAY TO CLIMB OF THAT STEP AND POSITION ITSELF RIGHT IN THE VERY MIDDLE OF THE DOOR, AS IT WANTED TO BE NOTICED. ALSO SURPRISING IS THAT THE DOG LIKES TO EAT AND CHASE BUGS (SPIDERS, FLIES), EVEN EATS WASP AND LIZARDS LIKE A PREDATOR (GIVES HIM SOMETHING TO DO), BUT THERE WAS NO REACTION FROM THE DOG TO THIS BUG. THIS DOG USED TO LIVE IN THE OPEN COUNTRY AND USED TO HUNT LIKE A WOLF, I AM BASICALLY SAYING THAT THE DOG WASNT AFRAID OF ANYTHING. AGAIN, MY RELATIVE KICKED IT OUT OF THERE AND I RAN OUT THE OPPOSITE WAY OF THE BUG. I LEFT VERY DISTURBED AND CANNOT STOP THINKING ABOUT IT. I OBVIOUSLY HAVE A WITNESS TO AT LEAST PART OF WHAT HAPPENED. SO OBVIOUSLY NO ONE CAN SAY THAT I IMAGINED EVERYTHING. MY RELATIVE DOESNT BELIEVE IN THE PARANORMAL AS MOST MEN, BUT EVEN HE WAS SURPRISED, BUT DIDN'T SAY ANYTHING. I CAN TELL HE WAS A BIT PUZZLED. HE KNOWS I AM A PARANORMAL BELIEVER. MY RELATIVE HAS NOTICED ON MANY OCCASIONS THAT I HAVE AN EFFECT ON ELECTRONICS, ESPECIALLY COMPUTERS, HE WONT LET ME TOUCH HIS COMPUTERS FOR NOTHING (HE USED TO BE A COMPUTER TECHNICIAN AND STUDIED ENGINEERING) BY THE WAY, I CARRY MY SMART PHONE WITH ME AT ALL TIMES, SO I CAN BE READY TO CAPTURE PARANORMAL THINGS THAT HAPPEN TO ME SO OFTEN, BUT IT HAPPENS THAT I DID NOT HAVE THE PHONE ON ME, SINCE I WOULD HAVE NOT IN A MILLION YEARS WOULD HAVE EXPECTED ANYTHING UNUSUAL TO HAPPEN, SINCE MY RELATIVE LIVES NEXT DOOR FROM ME (LEARNED MY LESSON). AS USUAL, WHEN I NEEDED THE MOST, I DON'T HAVE ACCESS TO MY CAMERA, COINCIDENCE? I THINK NOT! (EXCEPT FOR ONE OF MANY UFOS SEEN AND SEVERAL APPARITIONS WHICH GOT ERASED MYSTERIOUSLY EVEN AFTER HAVING COPIES IN DIFFERENT PLACES) I CANNOT FIND ANYTHING ON THE INTERNET LIKE THIS. TO ME THIS IS NOT NORMAL NO MATTER HOW YOU CUT IT. I AM A MIDDLE AGED WOMEN AND WAS NOT BORN YESTERDAY, I HAVE BEEN VERY GOOD IN REAL ESTATE AND CAN STRETCH A BUCK IN 4 DIFFERENT WAYS. CAN SOMEONE PLEASE SHED SOME LIGHT ON THIS? THANKS! breeld posted:11/11/2013 6:34:50 PM Well, it definitely would have scared me! Of course, I`m scared of creepy-crawlies, anyway.Jaxerback posted:11/13/2013 8:21:18 PM Two words...lump and hammer..LincolnGenghis posted:11/14/2013 1:06:04 AM Maybe it was a Toe Biter.

What I consider paranormal was first, how the bug was "waiting" for me in front of and in the middle of the door, a step above the floor. Second: How before that bug came towards me like 2 feet from where it was and just stood there square in the middle of me and doing that right after it was screaming (loudly what sounded like an alien scream) in terror every time I got close. I have lived in warm climate most of my life, so I am very much exposed to bugs of all kinds and sizes. This for me, was very unusual. It went from the bug screeching in terror loudly at me like an Alien, to confronting... to waiting for me in front of the door on floor and the positioned it was in, after being kicked out far. I guess you had to be there. Please log in or become a member to add a post.
