Crazy, Drugs, and Fall: I was never able to float anywhere else but my room in that specific house, and never in front of my mom or friends. I never told any family or friends. I'm only saying this here because no one knows I've actually floated a few times (3+ times... can't remember for sure) in my life till a hit my head on my room ceiling. I was a little kid back then (maybe between 5-9). Was very pure, poor, and innocent. I had an extremely sheltered life till high school One day my room ceiling fan was on when I did it. It hit my head hard. I didn't fall immediately, so I had to put my hands in front of my face so I wouldn't get hit again. I was slowly moving back down screaming in pain. I fell on the floor a few seconds before my mom ran in. I had a bunk bed so she thought I got on the top bed and moved into it... Since that day I was never able to float again... me... I would always float straight up slowly and could never control the speed or direction. Simply up. Then as soon as my head touched the ceiling I'd slowly go back down without trying. I couldn't control that either. Up to the ceiling and right back down... I don't remember if I even knew about Dragon Ball when this started... I don't remember if I intentionally tried doing this the first time or if it just randomly happene... I remember wanting it to happen the other times it worked though. As an adult when no one is home, I tried thinking about being a kid again in that situation, but nothing has ever happened... Now that I'm older, I think it may have been a ghost/spirit interacting with me for some reason. I guess I'll never know for sure, though I've had multiple ghosts encounters in my youth before becoming a teen (again 3+ times, but not for sure...). I had a strange childhood, but my life has been pretty normal since high school. I'm 27 now I know I'll be called crazy, high on drugs, or at least told I was just dreaming, but I know I personally went through those bizarre events. There's a reason I don't share this with people I know. I don't want them to think I'm crazy too... I know most won't believe. Maybe no one...

 arguing for "[Expletive Deleted] Boomer," even
 though it would have a vitality and rebellious spirit

 But when I read or hear "OK Boomer," I start to
 think there might be something special about baby
 boomers after all. We boomers may not be
 different in kind from other generations, but we do
 seem to inspire rhetorical creativity in our critics.

 weird al is by their tents looking at the forest, qun by side
 on the other side of the fire, one of his friends is looking out the other direction and appears to have a gun too
 >i see they're finally taking commandos seriously
 the other 3 people, 2 girls and a guy, are sitting close together. the guy's tending to the rabbit and the girls are wrapped in a blanket

 >shouts at me again
 >have no idea what to do

 suddenly hear a loud bang and the tree next to me explodes
 well a chunk of it explodes off

 they settle on dressing me appropriately tomorrow so i could reintroduce myself

 >on the verge of tears cause i smell like deer shit
 want to head back, but no! have to be strong if i'm ready for friends
 >heading towards camp, i see mary-jane wandering around the forest

 smile at mary-jane
 >smile and the world smiles with you afterall
 >she doesn't smile
 >she takes a step back
 >"have you seen my friend Ben" she says
 she says it really fast
 repeat it back to her a couple of times to digest it and look down
 oh no! my parents say it's rude to break eye-contact
 >look back at her in the eye
 >"well" she says
 again i repeat it, think and then say "your friend ben, i have not seen" so she'll think i'm mysterious and mystic
 notice she's covering her nose
 >why?
 >she suddenly looks really scared
 >i go to comfort her and she immediately runs off into the forest
 >that was weird
 >carry on and come to the old factory river
 >you should never swim in it because there was a factory upstream that leaked its sewage into it
 my dad was really upset about it but apparently it wasn't illegal due to some weird loophole or something
 >hear talking
 crouch low and walk downstream towards the voices, hiding behind bushes
 >see weird al and angry steve playing in the water
 >see all their stuff about 100m away on the shore
 >their guns!
 >guns are bad my parents always say and as the only resident on-site, it's my duty to confiscate them until they're ready to leave
 walk over and take them, weird al and angry steve don't even notice, too busy playing
 >guns are heavy and so, after around 20 minutes, i put them in a ditch and cover them with leaves so i can get them later
 carry on towards their camp
 >get there and it's empty, not a soul in sight
 rabbit leftovers are on a spit over the fire's remains
 since no one's around, i decide to take a bite of the rabbit, just to taste it
 easier said than done, end up accidentally breaking the spit trying to tear a bit off
 >lose my balance and trample over one of the tents
 woops
 >draw a peace sign in the dirt in kry ptonian as a way of apologising
 the rabbit didn't even taste very good in the end
 make my way back home, i would return in the evening

 id completely forgotten about the cherries on my face
 >mary-jane must've thought i was some sort of cherry bandit
 >face is all washed now though
 >put on my best suit, afterall this is my last chance to make friends
 >thinking about it, up until she ran away, me and mary-jane actually got on pretty well
 maybe there's hope for us yet?
 work my way back to the edge of the clearing
 >their camp has a huge fire
 >they're all out of sight though, no stories or cooking
 see that they didn't put the tent i trod on back up
 see the other tent rustle
 weird al rushes out past the fire
 >in the moonlight i just about make out him running 20m or so and then stopping
 >he stands still for another 30s with his back to the camp before running back to camp
 >just before he reaches the fire, he stops and looks in my direction
 >has he seen me? hurrah i can finally introduce myself
 >he starts shaking and shouting
 not wanting a repeat of yesterday and I make myself visible by stepping out of the busges so they don't think I'm a deer or something
 weird al shouts at me and this time i hear what he says
 >"Ben? Is that you?"
 >l repeat it back
 >then realise what i said
 >of course im not ben, idiot
 >remember to smile
 >find it hard to smile and talk so just shake my head

 >they immediately scream and all run away
 >how weird
 run after them
 matching their pace is surprisingly easy, maybe cause the girls had short legs
 >follow weird al into the forest
 >the forest shields the moonlight so i can only see his silhouette
 >he turns to me
 "Roger, did you see that thing? it looked human but its movements..
 can't think of anything to say so just nod
 weird al keeps talking, saying how useful his Eyy Ar would be right now
 no idea what he means
 >eventually meet up with the others
 celebrations all round
 finally they accept me
 >they must've been impressed by my spiderman crawl afterall
 >angry steve says they should try to find the car
 "what about ben?" i muster in my best weird al impression to show Im one of many talents
 >'i hate to say it James, but i think he's gone" says the girl who's not mary-jane
 who on earth is James?
 suddenly mary-jane stops walking
 >"what is it Sam?" angry Steve asks
 >mary-jane whis pers in his ear
 >he raises his arm and starts pointing at us while counting
 >"Ben's not here" he says very slowly.
 Weird Al replies "yeah?!" before suddenly standing up straight
 >he just screams "RUN" and takes off
 >everyone scatters
 >begin to think my new friends are a little weird
 decide to go home
 Never did find out what happened to Ben, but that forest is full of ditches so he was probably just playing hide and seek. Still can't believe weird al and angry steve were playing in the
 water, my dad says the factory's chemicals mean that bathing in it will make your hair fall out for sure
 Anyway, that's my weird story

Future, Head, and Lol: Given that you've asked so many questions when I told you I would be willing to explain on a call when you get back, I'm going to take it that you're very good at being single minded and you'd rather focus on what you're doing than look into something else. I respect that and think that's a great thing. If you're open for talking in the future, you've got my number. We're always looking for sharp people to help us grow and Jake was right, I think you've got a good head on your shoulders. I wish you the best, if you're interested in what we're doing or if you think what we're doing is legit. We're expanding and looking for the right people to help with that, you came highly recommended so I thought I'd reach out. Are you open for a call when you get back or are you set doing what you're doing? iMessage sorry I missed your call. I am out of the country. What is this in regards to? Hi it's Well, that's exciting! How about when you get back to the States we can talk, I'll need maybe 3 or 4 minutes to explain what's going on. When will you be back? Would you be willing to tell me the name of the company? Sorry I don't mean to come across as a jerk lol. I guess to clarify, when I say MLM I don't mean a business structure We'll be back in a few days, is it an MLM? where someone is above and below If you're referring to a business structure where there's someone you. I get that's every business. What I meant is a business structu re where the majority of one's income comes from recruitment of other Not sure if your comment on me being single-minded is a passive aggressive jab or not. But sorry man, I'm just skeptical with the out of state number and not being able to find out the name of this above you and below you, that's every business I've ever heard of, including where you work, unless you own the business and have employees, then that's a pyramid where the people below you will never make more than you. To be frank, I am not looking to see if you're interested in what we're doina or if vou think what we're people buying into the business, not from the sale of actual products/ services business. I like to think I'm open minded, I just have a hard time supporting MLM's. They're not for me. Best of luck! Oh dear, that's called an illegal pyramid and those get shut down because thev're illeaal.

Ever read the Scriptures all the answers are there if we've ever done any leg work to see. If Columbus or all the idiots of those eras read scripture there would be no ... well what if the world was flat. The scriptures are clear. The earth is like a round orb that hangs upon nothing. In Isaiah there is a scripture that says look up and see all these things that have been created talking about the stars the plants all that and it says each one of them God calls by name so just reasoning alone tells us that God has a name for every star in the universe and it never ends put that one in your pocket and little things what happens when you die Read in Ecclesiastes it tells you that's why Abraham had face to put up his son Isaac because he knew he would see him again in the resurrection if God took him it goes on and on I'm gonna say something and I invite anyone to him in a polite manner as I would be absolutely polite tell you I am one of Jehovah's Witnesses and I've learned more about My faith my heritage of a G as I do in all the years I was Jewish I knew nothing they taught me nothing I knew the four questions that we did for Passover we did the candles where are this that and the other thing but we never learned about who God is and the only way you learn about who he is is by learning about his qualities his principles heart and on and on and I Still consider myself Jewish I just believe that all scripture is divinely inspired and it's like a instruction book God left for us until the end of this system which is coming soon just like the day of Noah on the flood came because it was not nothing but bad all the time so get ready people and then God will restore his original purpose that man will be brought back to perfection and live forever inPerfection on a paradise earth and who knows what else after that it says new scrolls will be opened so we'll always be learning I wouldn't doubt will be start tracking around that universe is not out there for nothing I invite anyone to talk to me politely and I will politely talk back and I love you all and draw close to God because as you draw close to God he draws you closer to him 10.6k views View Upvoters Do you think God stays in heaven because he's afraid of what's down here?

 Ecclesiastes it tells you that's why Abraham had face to put up his son Isaac because he knew he
 would see him again in the resurrection if God took him it goes on and on I'm gonna say something
 and I invite anyone to him in a polite manner as I would be absolutely polite tell you I am one of
 Jehovah's Witnesses and I've learned more about My faith my heritage of a G as I do in all the
 years I was Jewish I knew nothing they taught me nothing I knew the four questions that we did for
 Passover we did the candles where are this that and the other thing but we never learned about
 who God is and the only way you learn about who he is is by learning about his qualities his
 principles heart and on and on and I Still consider myself Jewish I just believe that all scripture is
 divinely inspired and it's like a instruction book God left for us until the end of this system which is
 coming soon just like the day of Noah on the flood came because it was not nothing but bad all the
 time so get ready people and then God will restore his original purpose that man will be brought
 back to perfection and live forever inPerfection on a paradise earth and who knows what else after
 that it says new scrolls will be opened so we'll always be learning I wouldn't doubt will be start
 tracking around that universe is not out there for nothing I invite anyone to talk to me politely and I
 will politely talk back and I love you all and draw close to God because as you draw close to God he
 draws you closer to him
