This is a question Premonitions

When I was 14 I had a really scary dream about being run over. A few days later, as I gently bounced off the front of a volvo who seemed incapable of indicating, I found this vaguely reassuring.

Last week 'emadex' managed to respond to this weeks question a good five days ahead of time, so it would only be courteous to ask: What spooky premonitions have you had?

This question is now closed.

I have an uncanny way of saying something incredibly rude just as a teacher walks by. For example, a kid in my year called Lawrence has some major major issues. He onced punched a girl in the tit "to see if it hurt" and would often tell us about how he liked to watch videos of girls fingering knobs. Yes, fingering KNOBS.

Anyway, I was walking along with a friend when I spotted Lawrence, so I said to my friend very loudly, "That's Lawrence, the bloke who likes to finger knobs!" just as our principal walks by. Luckily, all he did was smile serenely and walk on.

Whenever I answer the phone...
...I can tell who's calling before even picking the phone up. I have this uncanny knack of visualizing the callers name and number as if it were displayed on a little screen on the phone - which it is, but I never get it wrong so that must count for something. Or not.

it seems i can kill Rock stars...
by merely talking about them.

it struck me as a little odd that Skip Spence died the day after i had been having a chat with a friend about Moby Grape.

Rick Danko was next. i'm a huge fan of The Band, but still, it was a little odd. my mother teased me about it a little when i mentioned that it had happened with Skippy as well...

George Harrison wasn't a HUGE shock really. he'd been going downhill for a while, and who doesn't talk about The Beatles all the time?

John Entwisle... slightly more obscure than George, but still not unbelievable. what can i say -- i'm a musician myself. i yap about musicians all the time.

Zal Yanovsky... okay now THIS is where i started getting really paranoid...

but for the record, i did NOT kill any Ramones.

When my wife was pregnant...
...for the first time, I had a premonition that it would be a boy or a girl. Imagine my utter amazement when it was!

ah, teenagers.
Last week while sitting on the big, yellow concentration camp on wheels we Americans call the "school bus," the kid in front of me was talking about how he likes to go really fast in his oversized SUV with all his friends. I said "I'll be laughing when you get into a crash, you dumbass." No more than 24 hours later he and his friends ended up in a ditch in the woods, each of them with at least one broken bone, due to having gone an estimated 70mph(112km) over the speed limit with no seatbelt.

My dreams are the opposite
If i dream about it, it won't happen... if i dream about someone i like i'll neber get with them (then again that could be the sad point in my life :( *goes away and cries*)

Oh arn't dogs ment to be good at this? If you are in a plane crash or something they start whining, and they know when there will be an earth quake.

Like others who have posted answers, I also must have had a 9/11 premonition
as I chose a different baguette from my normal that day. 45 minutes later, the first plane struck.

In order to save the world from disaster, I've been eating cheese and coleslaw every day since.

Not quite a premonition .. maybe

Missus RadG is a Teacher, and we play a fun little game come school photo time!.

In all the schools she has ever taught in I have always instantly been able to point out the P.E. teachers from the crowd.

In all of her class photos I have always , without fail been able to point out the trouble makers ... often months before they start to kick off.

When I am out in the pub (rare these days cos I am a very old bugger now), I can, without fail and with total accuracy spot who is going to kick off (and thus position myself and my mates on the opposite side of the pub).

Precogition is basically an ability of some ppl to read micro expression in the face of other ppl, anything else is just cooincidence.

Fear my girth !

Hmm. Had some freaky dream sequences one week and they happened in roughly the same order.
Hmm. Had some freaky dream sequences one week and they happened in roughly the same order. 'bout once a week. Not important though.

One was darkness, 'sept for Firestarter stuck in a 5 sec section looped. Then my IPOD starts acting erraticly. Firestarter got stuck in a wierd 5 second loop. It seemed to have fixed itself though.

Another time is where I was trying to escape a bright orange extention cord we have that was trying to kill me. Not too long later the fecker electrocutes me in the garden. Fortunatly the RCCD saved me from being fried.

Lots of odd things like that.

not quite premonitions
but I keep inventing things just before it's announced they're in development, like ADSL, I said "well why not just send a digital signal down, it's only a bit of copper", a few weeks later it was announced - buggers!

Oh but I won a tenner on the lottery last week just because I "felt" like I should play, I've only played 3 times and won twice :-D

It's been a while since I've done this, but,
When I'm walking down the street, I can look at a person and know that they're going to take an immediate spill right in front of me. And sure enough, not ten seconds later, they do. Sometimes I'll even count down, 5..4..3..2..1..::stumble:: and they'll trip over an upturned brick or their own stupid feet.

Also works with bikers, skateboarders, and people walking into poles. People dropping shit, people spilling stuff, people cutting themselves with knives while cooking.

My success rate is something around 80%. I almost never have enough time to warn them. Even when I call out "hey", they'll turn their heads but keep walking right into that open sewer.

I'm not into this kind of stuff usually. In fact, I laugh at people who are into this stuff. I can think of lots of explanations for the fall predicting. Could just be my ability to spot careless people. Or to see small problems in the environment. But I always, always get the timing right.

On September 10th, 2001 I had a dream that our civil liberties were going to be eroded. Okay, that one was a joke..a depressing joke. A couple days before the 11th, one of my people *was* on about how insecure our airports are. However he is a very paranoid person so I don't think that really counts.

I used to fancy this girl...
but couldn't tell her, you know how it is. So on msn me and my mate decided to do this. I would have me screen name as something about me liking this girl. If she didn't sign-in in half an hour I would be able to take it off. Fifteen minutes into the dare I chickened out. I told my mate I'd give it ten more seconds before I put back my original name. As I counted to ten the girl signed-in! I was freaked although my friend, and his sister's boyfriend, were having a right good laugh. It was probably a coincidence though.

Not spooky...
I keep having preminitions about TV films, such as the time that i placed a bet that "Demoliton Man" would be on TV on the next week, and surely enough it was.

Strange thing is, it keeps happening. I am sure the TV exec's are spying on me...

My friend, who regularly emails me, sent me an email one day talking about how her life was going great at that moment in time. Then she put something along the lines of 'i bet now im saying this, you will drop dead tomorrow, hehe'
I didn't drop dead, but two of our friends did die the following week in a car accident

Okay, laughing boy. I can't prove it happened, and you can't prove it didn't happen. Can we prove any of this happened? What if we're all a bunch of pathological liars? Anyway, it did happen, whether you believe me or not, and if I'm the only person in the world that believes me then that's fine with me. Now, sorry for getting off topic. get on with it.

Not a permonition per se
I have a young nephew who was only toddler when september 11 occurred, at the time his favourite pastime was building up two towers from bloks then smashing them down. After sep 11 he stopped this curious trait but was far too young to understand what was going on. The creepy thing is he has a bear he has name after me, sweet isn't it, his favourite entertainment is now to run the bear down with a tonka truck. I now live in mortal fear of large lorries.

Oh, I hope not.
Most of my dreams are about things such as a man putting a curse on me so that I can only talk about paella, or having to pretend to be Ayer's Rock by lying on the floor with a brown cloth over me.

Ok this was my nan...
But thanks to her i get these deja vu things i think.

When my mum was a kid, my Nan had a dream she was standing on water with nothing else around here. She looked down and could see her father singing deeper and deeper into the water and drowning.

Next day in the garden whilst playing with my mum and uncle, he dropped dead.

True story and it scared the hell out of me as a kid...more coming soon

When I read this QOTW and before i looked at the replies....
I had a strange feeling there would be a load of pedantic bastards posting things like "Yeh right that's total bullshit/bollocks/rubbish" and "Its all coincidence and nothing else" as if their opinions mattered. Weird eh?

When I were a nipper...
I think it was my last year of primary school, in fact yes it was, it was 1996. On night near the start of the year I had a really nasty little dream about a bloke walking into a big, safe building and shooting lots of children. Within two days, the little Scottish town of Dunblane had become infamous for just such an event. Which, being a kid, scared the living piss out of me.

At least this question I can answer plenty!
I always get really scary deja vu's and can tell whats going to happen next as wekk as odd dreams...i think i get it from my nan (will tell later)

About 2-3 years ago I was staying with my Nan in wales while my mum went to some greek Island over the summer. One night I had a really scary dream about me and a girl I knew walking casually over a lava flow when suddenly i saw my mum on the other side and there was a big earthquake which made me wake up sweating.
Next day I told my nan and she dropped a plate when she heard. Aparently my mum phoned at about 7 in the morning telling my nan not to worry if shen the news and she was safe. There had just been an earthquake which is almost unheard of where my mum was staying.

This one comes to mind
I had a dream one night that I was watching CNN news and they reported that a plane had taken off from somewhere in Florida and crashed, killing a bunch of people. I am scared of flying and have often dreamed of plane crashes, so I didn't think much of it.

The next day I was in a magazine shop that had a television mounted on the wall, and on this particular day it was tuned to CNN. They came on with a report about the ValuJet plane that had taken off from Miami and crashed, killing everyone on board.

I threw down the magazine I was thumbing through and RAN out of the store, I was so freaked out.
