Calling all veterans: The most notorious /x/ cases and mysteries. Things that started here. Info uncovered here. Shit that went down. I want to hear the shit you remember following post by post.
Do you know Xvox? It was supposed to be some /x/periment concerning synchronicity, allegedly all anons went insane in the process.
My personal experiences with synchronicity pretty much align with everything discussed in the left over threads but I can't say this has a significant effect on mental health. Can post anecdotal evidence if there is interest.
Synchronicity is ALL about recognizing thought-patterns and acting upon them. You can literally know the future beforehand, without any possibility of coincidence since the concerning details are too significant.

Reb is still around, I don't remember what he does.
The !DOCTOR was great, lots of 2spoopy stuff from him, Caustic as well.
Canadian Explorer was probably the last contributing tripfag we have had in a while. Mostly urbex stuff, I remember he got involved in some sort of cult by accident? His story was in the old archives I don't think it's in the new one anymore but it was a good read. So far as /x/ could tell, it was real too.
Even if this hoax or supposedly promotion of an upcoming ARG, it turned into a pretty damn good creepypasta.
Linked your post in the 'Strange Coincidences' thread. You should contrib there.
come on people, I know you have some goddam stories
MY favorite thing to come out of /x] in a while has been the alien and owl comics
I want to thank everyone that has contributed so far. After the Slenderman murders I need usernames of people that frequent here for further police investigation, then I am going to write a book using this info to make money.
Please post more!
Stuff I was around for that was awesome:
Spooky phone number ARG (pretty sure this is still going and no one knew it was was an ARG for a while)... If anyone else was there, you'll know what I mean when I say people running over payphones with cars.
Tracking down the Jeff the killer photo (albeit not entirely successfully)
Various Google maps and Google Earth investigations
Believe it or not people used to have decent threads about the derp web and creepy/interesting things they found there. I actually miss that the most... A bunch of non RP faggots up to their elbows in weird onion sites and trying to figure out if they were real or ARG, and what they meant.
What was fucking annoying:
Reading threads in general
I could go on but these are the highlights.
I began reading from these archives, specifically this image: http://img705.imageshack.us/img705/6220/xvox1.jpg
Somewhere early in that thread, some anon mentions he heard the words "Hellraiser" and "Cube" on the radio.
Yesterday some anon posted a comic of the hellraiser univere and I got curious and got to reading about pinhead and the cenobites and such.
ALSO:I am getting a shit load of Error:Upload failed.
There was this guy from a slav country who posted shit going down because of some shit he did during war. There was footsteps on his roof and his door getting slammed on. He eventually stops posting and never replies again. Can't remember many details, but the IRC was shpooky.
I know this was a while ago. But I was a part of that whole 12.42 thing that went down. Withthe weird ass websites, backwards letters, quotes from random philosophy books, and the tripfag, DOA, who destroyed his computer when he realized that because he downloaded one of the videos he was going to be tracked. Everything that happened that summer was hazy. Last I heard from Daniel Morgan, one of the lead players in what happened that summer, he was talking with some dude on youtube. I wonder what he meant by "previous phases".
12-42, for which there has been some renewed interest. I honestly think D.O.A. was promoting his ARG, but whateves, it's still a good read.
People talk about Saturn quite a lot,
whoever that is,
and it's common knowledge around here that Satan and Moloch are the same, so take that into account when you consider the popularity of Satanism.
Lucifer is popular, obviously, but not as popular as the archangel Uriel, who more or less dominates the board.
I have a lot of it documented on my phone.
I've made several threads on it since the actual investigation, but literally no one seemed to remember at all. Either that, or they were trolling.
A few years ago I joined a stream called Brogaming or whatever. They played some horror games and star wars crap. It was pretty fun. Turns out the guy, Alex, was actually Jadusable and he discussed how he came up with the whole BEN creepypasta and shit.
No clue what happened to him. Not sure if he still streams. I remember him advertising for some shitty kickstarter thing
>tfw we jedi now
12:42, Cult of Saturn, Ordo Saturni, the-organization.com, Mizar, Hanz, Mia, False Prophet, Ixaxaar, Temple Ov Blood, Jodi, The Cult of Mars, The 11th Circle, The Order of Phosphorus, 973-eht-namuh-973.com
And it is all related too.
well there's nothing much to really investigate. I left it alone after a while. I can't really make sense of it all, but it was really interesting. Shortly after the investigation my computer broke. I still have a lot of the bookmarks though, so if I wanted to re do some research I could.
I joined them. There was this forum where you could become a member, which contained further information and tips to join either the White Temple or the Black Temple.
Don't forget Voices of X.
Does anyone remember the site called Indigo Construction or something like that? It was disturbing similar to The Clothes Store but of 12-42 (the same false advertisement vibe, same color scheme, similar fonts, cryptic messages etc.), but I can't find it now.
There was this experiment where a bunch of anons wanted to have a shared lucid dream together, where they could be whatever they wanted and do whatever they wanted without getting legitimately hurt in real life.
There were succesful tests done by drawing sigils on hands or by using astral projection. A map and forum about the experiment were made, and everyone was really excited. It went on for a few months, then suddenly died out. I never tried it myself.
I Used to tripfag with Cannibal, Mr. E, and a few other people back when draw threads were common on /x/.
Allegedly Mr. E committed suicide, although I don't exactly remember what happened.
>nothing but obvious bullshit
/x/ saddens me. All of you faggots are completely unable to properly identify lies and photoshopped pics, yet at the same time, you can't identify what's really interesting: some of the most interesting posts and threads often go ignored in favor or retarded threads about tulpas, ghosts and stupid ARGs.
Everyone here wants truth, yet most simply foster bullshit. Funny how /x/ is the only board that kills its own purpose.
There was this group doing an experiment.
Put simply, all they wanted you to do was paint certain sigils somewhere. On a piece of paper near your bed. On your hand. Spraypainted somewhere in town. Hidden in a mailbox. They claimed it was just an experiment, and it went on for a few days.
People complained about nightmares and fever dreams, and a feeling of being watched by an invisible thing. They said people were starting to avoid them and the places where the sigil was painted. Then everything stopped for some reason. No more experiments, and no more people investigating them.
I think they called themselves "The Nowhere Men" or something like that.
>complaining about thread
You act like you have something better to do. You're complaining about /x/ and yet you're still browsing. If you ask me, you're the one with no life here. In fact for a while I stopped using 4chan altogether because all I would see was the same tulpa ghost bullshit. We know that half the shit in this thread is ARGS, but at least ARGS are actually interesting. If you have something better, tell us. Make a thread out of it. Otherwise fuck off. 0/10 troll
There was this website called Esoteric American or something like that. /x/ found it.
The goal of the website, according to them, was to increase spirituality and knowledge of foreign cultures in America.
They had one how to called "Yokai". You would write Japanese symbols and place some food in a jar, and sleep with it under your pillow. They even gave a tutorial on how to get rid of it if you didn't want it (I think you buried it in the middle of the woods).
Apparently, it would trap a small harmless spirit who would whisper wisdom and advice into your ear at night if the spirit thought you deserved it. But they warned they were mischievous, and would lie or cause minor annoyances in your house if they were not entertained.
People tried it out, and they had weird dreams. Not nightmares, just weird. Like dreams you get when you have a bad sickness and they span on for ages with nonsense happening.
The website suddenly shut down and they stopped returning e-mails with questions.
I heard nothing more about it and moved onto the next ARG or whatever.
I wish /x/ didn't drop things interesting things so quickly, this legitimately had my interest.
>namefag acting like a namefag
Way to miss the point: interesting things do happen around here, but they simply go unnoticed. That's all I was saying.
One of the most interesting subjects I've seen mentioned in the recent months was masks.
It started last year in like november, there was a thread about masks, how they're perceived and used in various cultures, and the interesting things that can result from them. The anon replicated masks from various cultures and tested them to see how it would affect his behavior, based on the widespread idea among those cultures that masks, by changing how you look, end up changing who you are. Thread was largely ignored save for some anon and me.
And just last week, some anon posted about an obscure Melanesian cult that made an extensive use of masks, allowing them to be overcome by a god of punishment, and act as his executionner. Ignored by everyone but me.
I've made some friends along those threads and started to exchange information with them on the subject of masks, and we share our respective experiences. And I came to some interesting conclusions myself.
But then no one will care about my own post. People around here want ghosts and stuff, not "masks". When a subject doesn't fit the usual categories, they get annoyed and leave. Don't even get me started on long posts like this one, and I'd be surprised if you read it aside from the fact that it's a reply to yours and, being a namefag, you feel obligated to defend your image.
RIP Oswald. He was an old tripfag, lots of the things in the stickied thread we have now were originally dumped by him. Apparently, he was good friends with Aeris, too- but he passed away of liver cancer a few months back.
Never forget :'(
There was this string of threads a few years ago where an anon was investigating some local cult.
Apparently, while hanging out by one of the locations he knew they hung out, he got stung by a giant red wasp and got a really nasty mark.
His skeptic and curious attitude suddenly changed to crazy and an absurd desire to become a member despite finding nothing about them beyond the fact they like to spraypaint abandoned buildings and leave behind empty plastic water bottles.
Threads were rather dead besides me and a few others, though we basically assumed he either got possessed or got some insect borne disease and lost it.
I see your point, and I apologize for coming off as an ass hole. When you posted on here it just seemed like you were complaining. As for an image, I rarely use this name. Haven't used it in over a year til this thread was mentioned. And then I mentioned 12-42 using this name and a friend of mine at the time, riker, came along.
Aside from me acting like a whiny bitch, I would never have even noticed those posts, because the whole reason I stopped using 4chan was because everything I saw was so full of shit. I literally just came back today. And one thing I can remember enjoying was investigating those little ARGS that you and this fellow here >>14677359
don't quite enjoy. Personally I enjoyed them because of the interaction level that people have as a community. Again I apologize for coming of as an asshole.
What you said about the masks though did strike me as interesting. If you have anything else on that topic please feel free to share. Personally I'd like to hear more.
There was this urban explorer guy who who was investigating reportedly haunted locations in his small rural town.
He ran two blogs for it: one for a barn place, one for a really difficult to reach and get into house in the woods.
It was pretty cool. There was nothing really big, just weird stuff.
Does anybody remember threads from a guy claiming that his dad knew an immortal black guy.
I forget his name, but i remember that he was homeless or something and that he protected the guy's dad.
There was that guy that cut his french toast into the shape of a turtle, then that night he had a dream about a tortoise. Two days later he was putting wax on his car and someone asked him what word started with 'f' and ended with 'uck' -- the guy was wearing a turtle neck sweater!!!!
Pretty good shit, I was in one of the threads I think. What happened to her anyways? The last I remember is Lette herself posting as /x/ found her and told her about the thread
It's funny. I almost completely forgot about many of the 12-42.org basics (I couldn't even remember the site name or anything until like last week when I saw a passing mention somewhere), but I'll never forgot some of the images there, like the ones posted earlier or like the one body wrapped in saran wrap or the one parrot being torn apart.
Those were pretty great and, dare I say, spooky times.
yea. I remember we got bored after that and tried to make up some random cult thing. I remembered the website we used last week. Nobody's posted, but to my surprise people still registered after we got through with it
>Captcha: has cultsl
I enjoy the neighbourhood shaman guy. He doesn't post very often but his threads on shamanism and defense against stuff are pretty sweet. Other than that we have like, no good trips on here anymore, jut that alpha and xenu phaggot.
I always like seeing that Jack guy. You know, the mirror, knife, candle person. It's always funny seeing people try his game and go nuts.
I wish it was a cult thing! I remember expecting each of us to be tracked down and murdered thanks to that DOA character.
>No captain silty butt, either
Unfortunately, since its discovery it is no longer paranormal
ffs I remember trying to remember how he did that code to get that one video. he was being such a pussy that day. didn't want to link me the site so I could use that stupid hotkeys thing.
Those cicadas. I quit pretty early on, but I'm told that some people arrived after they were finished accepting their first round of applications.
You think they killed them guys? Why else would they go to /x/ except to rake in paranoids with weak ties to their families? Why else force them to travel, to weed out all but those with absolutely no ties?
How did they put cicadas on 5 continents?
My theory is they are just a bunch of average /b/tards organising in obscure chans (like that chanolgy-only chan). They tried to do "le epic mistery" to feel important or jst to have fun at lots of people who thought it was some secret organisation.
Why? Because in one of those music video in youtube that were in some files there was nexcerpt of Kant's yadda ydda reason yadda yadda. I don't think a serious organisation would use something like that to make a challenge.
I remember a thread a while back, think it was a creepy picture or gore thread and someone posted a picture of a partially decomposed body (soft tissue, eyes, think cattle mutilation) and it turned out to be one anons missing girlfriend
There was a big search for the origins of a song about 5-7 years ago.
Someone claimed it was a John Lennon song from an alternate timeline, and it was very difficult to find anything on the song.
Eventually the origin of the song was found.
It was Welcome To Tomorrow by Ellison Chase.
Just read through the comments and it was 5 years ago.
Coudln't remember if it was when the video was first posted or not, but the comments mention /x/ finding the origins of the song.
Don't have a link to the "boyfriend"'s blogspot, but on it he pulled the stupid "must stay quiet...I'm being watched" crap last post I saw a couple of years ago, so basically you can say it's confirmed fake. Don't know who the corpse is or what happened, but it's on Bestgore. Story is probably locatable with diligence - I don't think it'll be anything noteworthy.
There have been several copycat threads.
I remember the original, and somebody started posting photos, maybe twenty, of this dead body, from different angles, in different states of decay.
There are a couple of photos on bestgore now, but back when the original thread popped up, everyone collectively shat themselves because nobody could find the source on the photos.
Based on timestamps and other things, it looked pretty damning for the guy posting the photos.
i use to have a bunch of links (chanarchive, googledocs) but i just checked all of them and they're all 404 (this was a few years back). i know here DeviantArt and Facebook but there's nothing on there and she doesn't seem to like it when it's brought up to her.
Slenderman murders happen.
Feds told they better be on top of this when next one happens.
Feds start a whole bunch of "What ever happened to so and so?" threads.
Anons happily supply info for dossiers.
It made me mad how that Franco asshole totally hijacked the Karin Katherine Waldegrave thing with his own fantasy RP bullshit. That person was a real woman, a fucking interesting topic, and even if there was nothing paranormal about her besides being a schizo, it was still interesting to keep up with. I knew it was over when Franco had to make everything this fantasy kidnapping government bull.
Also, updates on Chipchan, she probably really is just a crazy person. She lives near a police station in her city, and she now frequently leaves the house, which is a bit cleaner. I loked her up recently. Apparently she still has her cameras on, and does sleep now, and lives a relatively "normal" life compared to when everyone first found out about her.
Oh, and does anyone remember when we tried to do an astral meet-up? Supposedly, someone got the servitor Xyxephus to set up a plane for us to visit while we slept. It was pretty great stuff.
[spoiler]the 12-42 investigation is the most fun I've ever had on this website[/spoiler]
man that would take a lot to be honest. It was a different experience for everyone. Some people took it into their own hands. Some people did group searches. Like it's really hard to explain. The only people who really knew were Happyphantom, Mr.ContactCare, and Daniel Morgan.
Here's your chance anons to make /x/ history tonight.
Coast2CoastAM, call it up tonight and explain Slenderman and copypasta to Noory and the audience, become famous!
Jesus, sorry about that. All of these photos are raw screen caps that i took from my mobile. Superior cropped version coming through. (I think. I can't tell by the thumbnails)
It's a website that was initially found as "The Clothes Store". Going deeper led to both a forum and a bunch of pages with gore, autopsy photos, etc. and a bunch of talk about esoteric stuff.
it's been a while. Really. I apologize. All I can really remember is that it was something. I don't know if it was an ARG, or some fucked up cult. I really don't remember. All I remember is that the people involved to this day still take it seriously if you ever talk to them. They still take it seriously even though the site's long gone. If you ask them anything they will always give you similar answers. There was a picture I posted in this thread. I don't know what Daniel meant by "previous phases", but he makes it seem as though they have something bigger planned. Even though he described it as a solitary path when one of the commenters, Rob Oto, said he would like to contribute. I don't know what he has planned, or if he has anything planned. All I can tell you is it was hella interesting to investigate. If I can find one of the archived threads I will link it.
i remember Canadian explorer as well as when he got caught up with some weird cult. he has always been one of my favourite trip users. I think I might even have screens from that thread saved so I'll dump them when I get home from work.
I remember enjoying the doctors posts, as well as heaps of cannibals posts too. Again, if the thread is still around when I get home I will dump all that I have
As for other memorable tripfags, I'm going to say that despite the totally anticlimactic ending, and the fact that so many people here hated him, the Mizar RP over the years was fun.
They don't work anymore but --
http://12-42.com/Vyamhita/ this one still works.
http://theinsightnetwork.12-42.com/06041600/ this one works as well
http://theinsightnetwork.12-42.com/4_Truce_SWORDS/ This is one of the vids
Put these through the wayback machine and they may or may not work. Well. The last 4 will.
This is the link with one of the really fucked up vids.
It'll take a second to start.
this is the first time i've ever been hesitant opening a link. I may have participated in the investigation and capped some of it, but i never actually dug this far. [spoiler]Which vid is it[/spoiler]
my friends and I were all over this shit, but we never actually watched the videos. I think I'm gonna send the link to them first. This entire thing was scary enough before the snuff and gore and what not.
I don't have a cap but does anyone remember that thread a few years back, with the dude who fought in the bosnian war. He said he killed innocent villagers, and he believed the ghosts of the one he killed were coming after him. I remember his last post was him holed up in his basement saying he heard scrathing at the door.
Yep, there it is.
"stop calling me stop talking leave me alone quit quit quit i said id leave you alone now leave me alone quit quit quit stop stop stop stop stop go away go away go away stopstopstopstopstop"
and this is why it's bullshit.
I was doing some ARG involving lions and ended up e-mailing an Ivy League professor about it and making a phone call to some poor dude in the midwest because we thought we might have found his phone number as a clue.
yea. I thought it was weird at first. but 12-42 references a lot of weird things. It'd be difficult for me to go in and dig up all the links.
That sounds fucking hilarious
The ARG might have been 12:42 now that I think about it, because I recognize the name. But I participated in a few (there was mylightisfading as well, but that didn't go anywhere I think). This one involved the visuals of soundfiles and going into the source code of blogspot pages.
Also that MIT professor is still in my contacts and I found the e-mail. It might have been called ALAN V?
I sent him this link http://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread603464/pg1
This apparently is the girlfriend's body. Found it on a "best of /x/ " archive link in this thread
Anyone remember the sleep experiement website that ended up being a massive troll? Good times. Other than that, I knew the chick that used to stream things back in 2011 or so that got made into a picture with email@example.com on it. She was pretty nuts.
There's 3301 Cicada, which I believe is still ongoing. Lots of rumblings about sinister intentions on their part.
It's more of a /g/ thing though.
i remember a few years ago there was a thread on some kind of creature named "pleasant" or something that was like a reanimated animal(s) somethingsomething hitler experiments somethingsomething it was in the eastern united states at the time. i used that story to freak out a good number of friends hahaha
I was trying to find it again for awhile. I'm pretty sure that it got enough interest that it was put into the /x/ archive back when that was still a thing (no idea why it vanished that was the greatest shit). It was pretty well worked out and made to be believable though. Of course no one went like 'surprise it was all just a story i made up yay' and it stuck with it being totally true. but it was cool and i wish i screen capped it haha
>People started getting attacked in the 'other place' and they would die in the real world.
roleplayfags pls go
Weird ass voodoo statue on Google streetview
Moments after /x/ discovers it, it gets 'blurred' (even though it's obviously not a person... at least not human)
Anyone has the picture summary thing of the thread?
When you start to lose your mind give us a call! Or you could always call ghost busters.. BUT THATS ONLY IF THERE ARE GHOSTS!!
Vox/Axe pastas, minus the slashfic bullshit afterward
Not much in particular except memories of people coming up with good OC. Even the ones that were precursors totoday's RP bullshit, where there was a bit of interactivity with the OP and the story.
In high school, I started a thread on /x/ using a picture of my face that I'd poorly photoshopped to look ghostly. Someone recognized it, posted my first name, and wouldn't tell me who they are, instead, leaving a bunch of clues in the thread, leading to physical clues left in real life.
The clues were pretty difficult and very intricate. Some had really amazing drawings. The metastory through the clues was pretty dark, about a serial murderer, but I thought it was cool. There was also a possible promise of taking me to the prom if I figured out who they were in time. I posted to a thread on /x/ continuously but one day the guy stopped posting back.
Then, it rained, and I think I solved the clues faster than they were being placed, so I never learned who was leaving me the clues. It's been about four years, and looking back, what I should have done is:
- taken the handwritten notes
- asked the teacher who taught a course the person was taking if she recognized the note (they had revealed they were taking a certain AP class that few people at our school took)
- maybe just staked them out
I can't find the archived thread.
I've never actually learned for certain who it is. Prime "suspects" are:
- guy I was dating at the time, who was more of a lurker, but it wasn't his handwriting
- guy whose girlfriend asked me about the notes via Formspring (that anonymous Q+A site that got wiped) and forgot to turn on Anon (not that it mattered, she had a distinctive way of writing, with fucked capitalization and shit)
- girl who might've been bi or just wanted to fuck with me, given we both went on 4chan a good deal
Someone said they knew who it was but that they had promised not to tell me, but it was a known liar. I haven't been in my hometown since I left for college and I'm not close with any of my high school buds, so, I guess it's just gonna go unsolved.
Just did some digging through an old folder and I found this, good read
This was the last thread of Canadian Explorers that I ended up seeing. I'm pretty sure I saved all of the photos from that thread too and have them on my HD somewhere. I'll dump them if anyone is interested.
Not anymore. I lost a huge archive of old /x/ stuff when my laptop died last year.
Made me quite sad really. Used to enjoy browsing through the old threads and reminiscing.
Used to have all the stuff related to the Texas Stilt Walker mentioned here >>14677849
I remember way back maybe around 2007 tho feels earlier of some guy who suspected that his neighbours were in a cult. He started keeping a diary and would find weird stuff in their trash and would hear them chanting at night and going out for a smoke in the middle of the night in robes
The white represents the fire shining on their body, the black is just the side that is not illuminated by the fire and therefore is dark.
Not everything is a conspiracy you know..
This guy and his friend had an experiance with this wild dog that looked like a hyena with womanly hair on its head. It would avoid the street lights as it chased them up this hill. I guess a lot of towns people had stories about it and some tacobell employees locked themselves in their store because it was outside. The guy ended up going to look for it and he got hurt somehow. Some Anons went to the hospital and they posted a video with the guys friend outside of it. People google mapped the place and all that, we even got to see the x rays of his injury. Think he got bit by a raccoon or something. Crazy shit. I never found out what happened but it was crazy cool.
I've been here on and off since 2010, and some of the stuff that is memorable to me is:
>Wampus' threads, she told the best stories
>When /b/ was raiding all the time
>During one of the /b/ raids, a guy started posted about how there was a girl in a dress out the front of his apartment just staring in. Turned out he was trolling and it was just his girlfriend, but it was an awesome two threads
>Daily sea monster threads
>The same 15 or so creepypastas being posted daily
>More recently, Blue's threads
There'd be lots more, but I can't really remember. When chanarchive went down though, we really lost a lot of awesome stuff and I'm spewing I didn't save a lot of the old threads I was apart of.
Thank you, you wonderful anon you. Does anyone have any thread screens to go along with these?
btw,OP here, just in case anyone here is a massive newfag like me, don't post tripfag charts/timelines...mods will end you.
I didn't have time to screen the whole thread but I saved the web page so I can post the screens to go along with the photos tonight. I'll dig through my hard drive for anything else I have. I wonder if anyone has kept contact with him, I hope he's doing okay
See…I once read an interview wit him where he got asked what the hell was going on in this pic.He refused to explain…..He would only say that he was really fucked up.
I remember that really good drawfag that went by matador. We ended up being good friends on deviantart and tumblr, but I haven't talked to her in years. I remember she was really into gore and serial killers.
awesome, can't wait. Was anyone able to dig up any Mizar screens?
Does anyone remember when /x/ and /lit/ were really close and shared a lot of crossposters?
This must have been around 2008-10. All my favourite pastas came out around then.
AL FUCKING SO
You have a lot to answer for, /x/. I took a 4chan hiatus for about two years in 2011 and come back and you have homogenised all the pasta. Some individual sat down and typed them all out in white text on a black background with the same font and heading style.
This is bad because before then the pasta was screencapped from all over the internet, not just 4chan. Shitty messageboards with fifteen posters and derp websites and all that. It gave a more realistic cobbled together feel.
So fuck you to the person who made all the creepypasta look the same, and I am disappointed in /x/ for continuing to disseminate the considerably less spoopy images.
I don't hang out with her much because her personality really scares me sometimes...
Also, I know she secretly likes my demon OCs when we first met on dA. She is a very strange closet weeaboo as well.
The one that occurs most often to me, and some friends say it also occurs to them, is when you learn a new word, a word you never heard before nor knew what it mean, and suddenly, everyone around you is using it as if it were the most normal word ever.
This was happening before the "new age of internet" so i dont think its the case that everyone learned it from the same source at the same time.
Its just... odd, as hell.
Or how me and a friend in our youths really liked age of empires, we were on our way to the game store to check any new games and we were talking about AoE2 and how it would be so cool if they made a game that went from the past to the future, and BAM, empire earth.
Many things we think, others will think too, this much is obvious but the coincidences in time are astonishing.
Many times i came up with a new idea of theory, only to be exposed to it a few days later by chance.
I recall that there was a time where i genuinely wondered if my mind was being read because of all this coincidences.
I was around for the start of it. The idea was creating a sort of semipermanent dreamscape that any anon could acces if he desired so. the crepy part was that in order to do this they had procured a thoughtform namea Aeorah/Aiorah or something like that. It was supposed to serve as guide to guarantee of arriving to the common "place" to they never explained where did it come form, where did they make it's sigil or if someone had indeed created it for the task or repurposed it.
I attempted following the instructions but shit got weird fast. Let's just say a feeling of nausea and detatchment I personally reconize as somethign trying to pull you out of your skin ain't nice. Even if here didn't seem to eb any ill-will and it was, in fact, expected to happen in a way.
I never knew what happened to that experiment, but I never saw the end of it. Skeptics bear with me I am meerely retellign ym experiance, make of it wha you will.
I remember a while back there was this spooky story thread and this guy talked about when he was little. He said how his grandfather would threaten him and his girlfriend to never go outside his trailer at night (guy lived on a farm next to the forest) and he said that every night his grandfather would walk around at the edge of the forest with his shotgun as if he was guarding it from something. I can continue if anybody is interested? I remember it very vaguely though but I do remember the major parts
waiting on screens from senior anons. I've noticed many of the trips mentioned here have come out of the woodwork in the last two days lol, their ears burning or what.
here are all the mizar caps i found without looking too hard. they're not the most uncommon ones that were getting around but they're something. i should have some more laying around elsewhere. i'll keep looking until the thread 404's
Have a courtesy bump. Im genuinely interested in this. I am positive some weeerid shit was goin on there, some Anons claimed to have succesfully interacted in the dreascape but i read little else. Anyone else was around for that?
Fuck it I'll post it either way. This is it so far:
>kid lives with his little sister
>family consists of crazy mother and father + the crazy grandpa
>they all live together in a trailer except for gramps who lives alone on a farm above this small hill right in front of them
>the place is surrounded by a forest
So that's it so far right? Well, the guy kept going saying that this one time during the night his dog wanted to go outside to shit. He opened the trailer door and right away the dog started growling and staring at the forest which was about 20-30 ft away. As the dog was growling at what seemed to be thin air the kid heard his mother yelling from the woods "anoooon...comeee hereeee!..." very faintly at first. Then he heard her again "aaanoon...come here!." he was just about to step out of the trailer when his mom grabbed him from behind and slammed the door shut saying "Anon, that is not me. Don't ever dare take a step outside at night"
>Something is haunting the woods
The guy went on to explain this encounter with some creature. He described it as tall, silent and with bird-like head. Sort of like this picture but without all the prominent edges and detail, just smooth and black like a shadow, with glowing eyes. He said the first time he saw it was at night, he entered his small room and he saw his sister watching tv and the creature sitting right next to her. The creature turned his neck slowly towards him and just stared. He said that every time he woke up in the middle of the night the creature would just be sitting there, silently staring.
>he is an adult now and he said that if he ever mentioned the creature to his sister she would break down in tears. Apparently she would see "him" every time she was alone. Silently staring...
He explained that his mother knew about the creature and she would tell them to not be scared, that it would not hurt them and it was just "visiting" them
>Why does the mom know so much?
Well apparently the mother was a witch. Not one of those wiccan hippie faggots but a full blown WITCH. When she was little (7-8) she lost her virginity by getting gang fucked by lots of men as part of some initiation ritual.
That is all I can remember about the mother but I think she escaped the group or something with the father (he was a witch too) but she ended up getting haunted by a demon or demons. This is why the grandfather keeps guard during the night and also why little anon heard the voices in the forest and saw the bird shadow guy inside the trailer.
I have one more paragraph of the story but I'm just about to get busy. If anybody is interested then say so, I feel pretty stupid right now because it seems that I'm just typing for myself.
The last thing I remember was that once they grew a few year older little anon and his sister started to venture out into the forest during the day. The adults in the family didn't mind this and said that the danger was only present during the night.
>then one day..
Little anon and anette where walking around with anondog in the forest when anondog spotted something hanging from a branch. The kids went to see it and it was a humanoid shaped doll made of human hair sort of like the picture but without clothes, just a plain ass doll made of hair.
>The doll smelled like a rotting animal.
The 3 ran back to the farm and told the adults who lost their shit and asked the kids if them or the dog had touched it, they hadn't so they said no and the grandpa and the parents followed the kids to the doll. The grandfather burned the doll making sure he didn't touch it while he did. Anon said that during his time exploring the forest he found a lot more of these dolls, all made of black hair and with the putrid smell. The grandfather burned all of them and never touched them.
Anon and his sister moved out of the farm into the city when he was older. He says he never saw anything or experienced anything weird ever again except when his sister would break down when asked about the bird creature. His mother ended up going crazy along with the father. Grandpa and the dog died of old age.
>so what the fuck was that thing in the forest?
He never finished the story, he ended it by saying that he would keep going If anybody could tell him what in the world that thing was. He said his grandfather told him the name of the creature. Anon said it sounded like "Duali" but that he was young so he could have misheard.
That's all I got. If somebody screen capped or remembers this please let me know.
Fucking shit I forgot the picture.
Thank you guys
Oh, I wonder that all the time. I mean, I consider the part up to the first ending to be a classic. Seriously. I will read that shit to my kids when they're old enough to handle it. I just hate reading past that and thinking of what might have been. I hope she's okay.
This was only a few months ago, but there was a truly fascinating thread where a guy claimed his father had been saved out in the woods during a snowstorm by a "white man" who was some kind of weird tall creature with white fur who only seemed to appear when there was snow.
In exchange, every year the white man would "take" something. Some years an animal or livestock would disappear, or a neighbor would die inexplicably. In one case after an encounter with the White Man, a strange on foot walked down the road and was never seen again. The author's baby sibling was found dead in their crib with the window open. Even if fake, it was really detailed and interesting. Supposedly it was still following the family in some way. Reminded me of some minor deity who takes a "sacrifice" in exchange for protection.
It was a long story and I'm sure I'm fucking it up. I really regret not saving it.
This is what I loved about older /x/. Interesting, original story threads, especially ones happening "right now". Even though they were most likely fake/roleplaying, it was the kind of roleplaying I can get behind. Suspend my disbelief and participate in, you know? Not any of this Hi-I'm-a-vampire-werewolf-witch-haunted-by-a-demon-ghost sort of thing most prevalent now.
what happened to the anon in like colorado checking out this kind of suburban/foresty culty place that had a bunch of little statues of pyramids and goats? and then anons on google earth found like bigass glass pyramids all around the inside. what happened after that?
Anybody else here there when we investigated yvettes bridal formal?
I just checked the website again and it's gotten even weirder since
Not sure if you guys have looked into it again since, i've been a bit quiet recently
When did we do an "investigation"? I remember it popping up on weird links threads throughout the years, but I don't remember any organized investigation like with The Clothes Store.
I can't remember exactly but it would've been 1-2 years ago now, a couple of guys from /x/ rang the store asking about it and they'd just hang up, then im pretty sure one guy actually went to the physical store and they gave some weird excuse like the web designer has some sort of illness and they didn't like answering any questions.
We also found a map eventually on the website which had some interesting things on it.
not op but this is an Antony Gormley piece of art. He made thousands of these statues and put them all over the uk, I have some photos I took of some in Liverpool's Crosby beach. They're creepy but not at all supernatural,now that being said I can't find any of my own photos on my laptop ~sp00ky~
You can google then fairly easily though,
np, thanks for the contributions!
I remember a Chanarchive thread about some weird gaming forum. It was weird because it was overwhelmingly… normal. That sounds dumb but imagine:
-thousands of members
-every member had a photograph of "themselves" for their avatar and seemed like an attractive mid-20s person and their usernames were their full names
-all discussion was cordial and polite at all times, no flamewars or even arguments or disagreements
-at the same time… they never really seemed to "say" anything, like nothing they said was more than "yeah this game's cool!" or something
-tons of posts
Anyway, it was super creepy. Like a bunch of aliens posting on a forum pretending to be human under the guise of what they'd seen on Facebook. One theory people had was that it was created by some weird program/bot/etc. that stole pictures/names from people's Facebook profiles and cobbled together posts out of random things they'd said on there.
