I screamed, and closed my eyes real quick.
That could give someone a heart attack.

17. I had another Konqueror window open concealing the link and
still got a jolt.

But if I saw the image head-on, I'd be sitting in a puddle of my own cowardice by now. :D

16. That was the first one I have experienced, and I hope it never
happens again. I am actually gun-shy now about surfing the internet and clicking on things. I think I'll just stay in DU and quit wandering around.

Warning: not for the easily chilled or the weak of heart...

My husband is out of town and I am alone so I'm I bit more nervous than usual.

I'll mark this thread and maybe when he gets back I'll muster the courage if he watches it with me.

40. Hee. hee. hee
But sorry if I spooked everyone...

Here's a link to site where I originally found the little video...

http://www.museumofhoaxes.com /

if you can't find it, look toward the side of the homepage, under "most popular topics", "Eerie ghost video"...

I will admit, I still get a bit of a chill watching it myself...

Practical jokes are juvenile, especially when you play them on people you don't even know.

32. How well do you speak Dutch?
I lived there as a teen, and much of my family is from the Rotterdam area, but I would be hard-pressed to carry on a conversation right now.

It was not meant as a practical joke, I just needed someone to commiserate.

My husband is out of town and I was very jumpy last night.

44. Fright Night
"Welcome to Fright Night - for real."

Considering that it's the film they ripped that hag from, and I screamed loudly enough to wake my roomie & send my kitties scrambling away, I'd say the quote fits.

Once I calmed down, I sent the link to the two friends I'm planning a vacation with. My comment was that we have to look into "this place" for a destination. I believe in spreading sunshine wherever I go. Heh-heh.

Yup that's some scary shit even if you are expecting something to happen like I was let alone seeing it unawares. I hope your friends don't hate you for too long for sending them the link. I imagine they'll be paybacks so watch your back. :)

47. Sorry if I freaked anyone out...
But it's been a long week and I'm Jus' trying to fun you all.

Once again, here's the link to what everyone's been talking about, ifn't you haven't seen it yet.

Once again, not for the squeamish, weak of heart, young children, or pregnant or nursing women...

http://www.princeton.edu/~ccaro/mist_or_ghost.html

You do have to look really close to see the Ghost, focus on the car if you can't quite see it.

There is also a faint, barely audible scream that can be detected shortly after the so-called ghost first appears.

Have fun,

Longgrain....

What makes it effective: The scream after playing the "hobbit music" and keeping the zombie slightly out of focus while the serene background remains in focus.

61. And it takes a bit longer than you'd expect...
UGH I finally clicked on it (not as scary in the daylight!) and I waited...nothing happened...looked out of the corner of my eye...thought maybe I was missing something in the HOLY MOLY!!!!!!

Yup, that's how it went.
