Went to our friends Juan and Ana's new flat last night. There were 8 of us, and somehow we ended up talking about scary things.

Andy told us about his uncle, who was disabled and staying at his house a few years ago. Last year, A walked in one night to bring him a cup of soup. The uncle complained that the cup was "broken", but he didn't notice anything significant, told him to drink it and left the room.

Came back in a while later to take the cup back, and the uncle goes:

"Oh, the cup's been fixed"
So A is like... "What do you mean? Who fixed it?"
Guy points and goes "That woman standing there in the corner. The one with the long dress."

A stormed out. He says he remembers how, after he ran out, his uncle kept knocking on the wall and yelling at him to come back in.

The uncle died in that same room last year, and now A sleeps there

I mean HOW?!

Ugh. God.

What the f*ck is so scary about that?

It just sounds like his uncle had dementia and was seeing things.

People hallucinate at times when health is failing. My neighbor always saw some swarthy man in her bedroom.

Possibly! It depends on how you look at it. It reminded us all of that one scene in Pet Sematary,.. this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qnXo...

Not sure, wilde. I know he went around in a wheelchair.

Yes, could be, if that's what you like to believe. I personally like to believe there are scary things around we can't always see.

It's best to first and foremost try to explain these instances via any known causes, THEN call it 'ghostly' if you cannot.

My dad has dementia and on days where his brain's not receiving adequate bloodflow, sees and hears things.

only if that's how you want to do it, bunny. I don't see how that's "best". to each their own, and all that.

Please tell me you don't believe the earth is 6000 years old.

PLEASE.

I hope I never have dementia...that would be probably the most awful thing...

Any mental disorder or deterioration is 'the most awful thing', really.

My dad has vascular dementia, caused by years of diabetes and heart disease being harsh on his body.

Absolutely not, if that makes you feel better!
