25 Puzzling Experiences That Still Can’t Be Explained


This was a long time ago, but one time my girlfriend and I were sitting on my back porch just hanging out. Then all of a sudden this random kid runs out my back door, yells dinner’s ready, and then jumps off my porch and runs through the bushes. I go inside to ask my parents about it and all they knew is the guy just came through the unlocked front door and ran through the house.


Someone broke in to my apartment (climbed through the window from the fire escape) and did my laundry.


I was out with my parents one night eating dinner. When we got home, I got out of the car and went inside ahead of my parents. No one was home except our family dog. When I stepped into the foyer and switched on the light, I turned to walk into the living room. Sitting there in the dark was the dog looking at me like he was terrified. Eyes bulging and skin shivering. As I was rounding the corner to console him, I realized that he was sitting next to a perfectly round, red circle (with a diameter of about three feet) that had somehow been drawn into the carpet. After running my fingers through the color and not seeing any come off onto my skin, I reached down to see if perhaps my dog was bleeding. No such luck. My parents followed me in and were equally puzzled as to what this perfect red circle was and how it got there. We assumed it was blood and cleaned the carpet as if treating a blood stain. Within a few minutes all traces of the circle were gone. We had no idea what it was or where it came from.
