What strange thing have you experienced that you cannot explain?

Back when I was still a student I used to love wearing watches and I would never go out without my watch. One morning, my watch stopped at 9:50 or 10 minutes before 10. Not a big deal until I got home and I noticed that the clock in my room had stopped at the exact same time – 10 minutes before 10. Both clocks had different batteries, and the batteries were put at different times, etc.

A friend of mine explained to me that it is common for clocks to stop around this time, because that’s when the hands are going against gravity, and hands overlapping could play a part in the clock stopping at this time. However, a wrist watch doesn’t really hang the same way a room clock on the wall does, and they both stopping on the exact same day is pretty bizarre, in my opinion. This is something I still think about and I can’t understand.

  1. Wow, that is really amazing…! That never happened to me but I do have some “sixth sense” experiences often…! Although something like this is really incredible and I’m wondering what that means… Was it recently or long ago, did you realize what it was…? :/ I think such things always have some meanings…

  2. I don’t have an explanation. But your friend’s explanation sounds believable.

    As for things I can’t explain. I sometimes hear my children’s voices calling me. The voices are loud and clear. Yet when I ask them what they want, they say they didn’t call me. What’s even worse is that sometimes they are not even in the house with me at the time. But so help me … I heard them calling me!!

  3. there is so much we cannot explain with religion, science or philosophy. The answer is a message I suspect. There are natural phenomena that stop electronic clocks, but they stop a lot more than just the clock.

    strange things happen. i have shared before that sometimes when I am really stressed, I feel a hand on my shoulder.

  4. In the horological world (Science of Time) they say time stopped at 10.10 , that is ten minutes after ten.
    There are three reasons they state for this
    1) That was the time when the atom bomb was dropped on Nagasaki and Hiroshima, and it is a way of honoring the dead.
    2) Abraham Lincoln died at 10.10 and they say time stopped then.
    3) However a watch manufacturer will tell you that it is the best position for a proper display of the dial and the features on the watch.
    I don’t have strange experiences but I though I would share these facts with you.

  5. I think it was yesterday when I made a post about some particles like sawdust coming from above that fall on the slippers by the side of the roof’s edge. But there is nothing unusual in the roof. So where are those particles like sawdust coming from?

  6. That is a bizarre story. I think it was a sign from somebody telling you what, I don’t know.

    I have a few. One day I noticed the little matchbox (small toy) cars I have of Dustin’s were moved from one table to another. Took my breath away.
