Yep, pretty disappointing Jess

Seeing flying pigs and unicorns means you're really out of your mind but they look way cooler!

The breathing thing happens to me sometimes.

The only time I hallucinate is when I don't get enough sleep. These aren't of the 'woah, trippy' variety. These are the 'oh crap whats that crawling on the wall' and the 'oh crap whats that moving closer to me' variety.

What makes them even worse is that I'm still awake enough to remember that I live next to a graveyard.

Good, then I'm not just weird haha.

Oh, you mean when you stare at something for too long when you're tired and it appears to be moving? I remember being tricked by that as a kid. I was half asleep and thought there was a skunk in my bedroom. Yep, I was a little idiot. c:

That sounds fun, actually. I'm strangely jealous.

I don't have to be staring at it for long - I just look and see something move.

It's mostly stuff jumping between walls. Sometimes I'll see what looks like a person walking around - Forgot to mention, but someone also died in this house too.

Speaking of skunks, my dad screwed up big time back when I was only a few years old. We had a skunk running around, destroying my moms plants. My dad traps it UNDER the house - and shoots it. Guess what smelled like skunk for the next month?

That's awesome.

I live near a graveyard, so it's fun to wander around there. But some people down the street from that graveyard have an angry German Shepard. :c

That's funny- my sister just found a skunk in her basement really early this morning. X)

Yeah, shooting something with anal scent glands under your house is generally not a very good idea.

Skunks used to live under my garage. Sometimes we see them wandering around in the yard. They're actually cute. c:

Going to clean the cats' litterboxes now, then going to bed. Goodnight, DCC.

I don't think I've actually ever seen a skunk. Not joking. Only in pictures and stuff.

I almost agitated a skunk while walking home once. Luckily, I'm not an idiot, so when its tail lifted up, I knew not to cross its path.

Ouch, skunks are nasty. D:

Luckily in Australia we don't have skunks so fortunately I don't have to deal with them :3, but I've heard their stench is unbearable ;-;. I'd actually probably have no idea what to do if I encountered one, the number one priority would probably be to get away as far as I can from it. xD

The only skunks I've seen are in pictures (cos I'm from the same part as Rainbow) but they do look cute.

You should have walked up and kicked it.

You'd have only smelled like crap for about a year month.

Edit - Where'd you find your avi? I'm thinking about switching mine, but I'm wanting to run with the same idea. (Move name, other meanings.)

You're not alone. Although I've seen animals that didn't get very fortunate. Kinda depressing tbh.

Ah same. D:

It is depressing, I've seen dead possums lying around and they look so bony and thin, although my mum has a hatred for them, for eating up all the vegetables in our garden, it was really sad looking at it. Also once at school we found a dead pigeon with its foot at odd angles along with a rumour there was once a pigeon with some part of its body leaking out ;;. It was really sad to hear what was happening to all these poor animals. D:

When I was walking to school one day, I found a frozen cat. Literally, a kid poked it with a stick and it was as hard as a rock. I was so sad to see that.

Kinda gory so spoilered:
Spoiler:
Then one day we had all these dirt hills over by where I lived and we'd bike on them when the weather didn't suck. One day there was a deer carcass laying off to the side, and it seems something had stripped it bare. It's hard enough finding them in the city, but how can a deer carcass be in the condition it was at that time?

All I've seen in person are dead squirrels, turtles, birds, possums, and tons of insects.

And I've also never seen a skunk in person.

I don't see dead animals often. Which is good, because I have an extreme fear of dead things, lol.

I hate dead animals. :(

I don't mind squishing insects but seeing poor animals getting run over or beaten is really sad. D:

And I was also expecting a frozen cat in that spoiler :x, I was about to half cover my eyes haha but it is definitely sad what happens to some animals. It is good you don't see dead animals often, I think the last one I saw was a year ago thankfully.

Curiouser and curiouser~ I haven't seen any dead carcasses of animals lying about the place in my country since forever and I always wonder why. Animals die everyday right? It's so very curious why I don't see a single one of those bodies anywhere. Ninja road sweepers, perhaps? *laughs* xD

(The first thing i see when i come here is a post about a dead cat )

Ninja road sweepers most likely isn't the cause. Rats, birds and most other animals will be quick to scavenge carcasses for food during the night/early morning. In fact near my house are several fox burrows who are very docile, but whenever there's a dead bird you can be sure it's gone within an hour.
