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?

September 11 2001,
..not funny at all but very creepy.

Was listening to the Tom Mcrae song 'End of the World(Dose Me up)', whose chorus goes 'this is the end of the world news....sponsered by God', flicked over to the radio to get a traffic report to hear the announcer reporting that a plane had been flown into the WTC.

Still sends shivers down my spine.

This was one wierd dream....
I dreamt my old secondary school teacher was teaching a class, which I was in. I ran away and she ran the other way, but then she caught up to me and brought me back in. Suddenly everyone vanished and smoke covered the top of the room, which looked like a big cathedral. I then, without wires or anything, rose to the ceiling, and a big booming voice said: "WHAT DO YOU WANT?" So I said, scared shitless, "I want to be really good at ping pong and knives." When I woke up, I played ping pong that day and smashed my opponent, and I chopped some cucumbers like chefs off the TV. Wierd.

I have premonitions all the time, but about really stupid things - like pouring a bowl of cereal, or accidentially bumping into someone who is tying their shoe.

oooh another one....

last monday a friend of mine travelled to London to go see the Yeah Yeah Yeah's. I knew that he was going to get VIP backstage passes while he was there, but I didn't mention it, worrying i might crush his hopes if he didn't. He phoned me the following day to tell me he'd won VIP backstage passes to the party.
:: score!! ::

I also have this thing where I know what number someone's going to say. two instances of this come to mind, one was when I was on holiday with my aunt, and she was talking about something or another and said " i think there was uuuuummmmm....", and i thought "five", then she said "ummm...five people...blah blah". I was worried.
Also, I was watching that Derren brown russian roulette thingy, and I knew that he was going to choose barrel 3 as the one with the bullet ( i think that was it...might've been barrel 5), but that it would be wrong. he shot the gun, but it was empty. I then knew that the next one would be empty, and that he knew it was, but that the one after was the one with the bullet. he placed the gun to his temple, fired, then fired the gun away on the second shot. it was the one with the bullet in....i'm still worried to this day!!

when I was five years old
I dreamt that I was in another country, and I was stood next to a pool. Around me were glass panes as walls, and it was like a large conservatory over the swimming pool, and a life-guard ring thingy that they have to save lives. outisde was a green hill, with one single orange tree on it, with one orange. I remembered this dream vividly, but never really thought much of it for about 9 years. Then, when I was 14, my family booked a holiday to Florida, which I was extremely excited about. My father brought home some photos of some work friend's apartement in florida. In these photos was the bungalow, the pool with the conservatory like walls, and a slightly green hill with a few orange trees dotted along it.

we stayed in a hotel, and I told no one of my dream, it scared me waaaay too much. I still have the photos too.

Not huge but scary still
My mum loves going to greece, so do i but as I get constant heat stroke it isnt funto go every year so I miss out sometimes on going a broad and look for somwhere different.
This year mum and I decided to go to Austria. I decided on a 1 week holiday instead of to as well as having it a week earlier than planned so we'd have some extra time over ther summer together at home before I went back to uni as well as worried about the weather being bad and something else I couldnt put my finger on.
Anyways holiday went ok, rained a few times but it was ok, went on a few coach journies as well as walks.
A week after we came back we saw on the news about that coach accident tubling down off the road. Same jorney we did a week before, same coach too...

The other day...
Watching two lads "play-fighting" after a shift, to see who was the king of an invisible ring. It wasn't a premonition, but I could see the only way it was going to end was with one of them getting hurt, especially when an old security guard got somersaulted out of the ring. Giving the small 16 year old a taste of victory.

New challenger!

After writhing in agony, the past King of the Ring went to hospital to discover he had "soft tissue damage" after being forced out. I don't know who it serves right to be honest.

When i watched the first kill bill
i spent the entire film in a state of deja vu. It was as if i had seen the film all the way through, but forgotten it. Though that may be to do with what i had been smoking...

odd biology thing
myself and friends were sitting in english about 6-7 years ago, when for no apparent reason we both blurted out the phrase 'endoplasmic reticulum' at exactly the same time - how we laughed

Some of you are really good at predicting the future. They should employ you to write the TV listings.

I Err... Predicted My Ex Boyfriend...
A few months before meeting my (now ex) boyfriend, I had a very vivid dream involving being in someone's house and following them along the upstairs landing, down the stairs and kissing them halfway down when they turned round, there was more which I don't remember.

Anyway, a fair time later, I'm with my boyfriend David and we're walking through the hallway as I'm about to go home.

I notice something, I'm sure I recall this carpet pattern and what was on the windowledge, all at that angle... and it occurred to me I'd seen it in that dream before.

I recalled the rest of the dream before it happened, and with very scared bemusement, counted the steps he walked down, waiting for the 6th step, where sure enough he turned round and kissed me.

How strange... not unlike David, who I dumped shortly afterwards for being an immature little twunt.

My friends joked with me that he was literally the man of my dreams... if he's the man of my dreams then I've no hope.

EDIT: I also have a particularly fine knack at predicting radio playlists.

It's not really a premonition as such...
..but about 8 years ago I was waiting with some friends for our order in a local fish and chip shop, and I was browsing through the crappy women's mags on the counter (as you do) and as usual they all featured shock scandal stories about Princess Di on the cover. Flippantly I said 'god that woman is so bloody annoying, I wish she would just die'.

The next day she did 0_o

I was on ski vacation. I just returned to the hotel after a day of snowboarding. I decided to lay down and rest. I closed my eyes and saw a blurry picture of acracked skull laying in a pile of snow (I wasn't sleeping, I just closed my eyes). On the next day, I saw a snowboarder kid crash against a boulder and crack his head open.

It also happens frequently that I finish saying something that other people started saying.
Example: A friend comes up to me and says "Hey, yesterday I was in..." and I jump in and continue what he said, "the mall and you bought a guitar."

Well, it's a bit like something from a Mills & Boon book but...
I came out to Australia in September, and about a month before I left I had an amazing dream. This was the sort of dream that leaves you on a high for most of the day and makes you not want to talk to people in case you begin to forget it. It was simply being on a place I knew to be a small island (I wondered if it was meant to be the Scilly Isles for a while)and a girl with long brown hair seemed to appear and we just seemed to end up together. There was one scene, in particular, which to involved a small railway, that looked abandoned and another scene looking out to sea, with this person feeling that all I had to do would be to make the desicion to go with this girl and it would make my life a lot happier. I'd been in Aussie, travelling with friends, for about two weeks when we drove through the Bundaberg sugar cane fields. The small railways, used to harvest the sugar cane, suddenly made me think of my dream and I felt a bit like the day I'd woken up from it. This played on my mind for a few days. My friends persuaded me to come on a three day trip on Fraser Island with them, despite the fact that I couldn't really afford it, and on the first evening, a girl with long brown hair introduced herself and the next night we got a bit closer. The next night again, we were back in Hervey Bay (where we left from to go to the island) and I meet up with this amazing girl again. That night ended up with us playing on the beach, in the moonlight and looking out to sea. I realised that I'd been a bit unhappy, for quite a while, and my life had to change in a big way. I'm now hoping to be accepted on a three year uni course and not planning to return to england too soon. On top of that, I've got some pretty amazing memories of that place and that girl to help me through whatever life throws my way.
Okay, long winded and a bit slushy, perhaps, but I think I'm going to take a bit more notice of these dreams in the future.

Not very useful
but I can usually predict which simpsons episode I will see next, without looking in a telly paper, and for some reason I always know when the phone is ringing for me.

Predicting things
The usual stuff when I used to be in school would be people walking through the door and I suddenly get a strange feeling that this certain person would walk through the door and they did! This often happened and still does now, unfortunely without the door fetish

I once had a dream...
...That I was lying sideways on a furry floor, unable to move, and all i could see were people's trainers. A little wierd, maybe.

A week or so later I dislocated my knee during PE at school, and I ended up lying on the sportshall (astroturf) floor, unable to move with the pain, gazing at the trainers of people that surrounded me before i passed out.

Ive also been watching crappy gameshows on TV and been able to guess the next topic when it's (supposedly) picked at random.
Nothing spectacular, but hey.

No one will belive me, and I care not a whit.
I feel that a lot of instances of premonition are cases of your mind putting two and two together long before 'you' catch on. I think those are still cool, as they illustrate what a neato toy your brain is.

I also reckon that some people are simply pre-cognizant, psychic or telepathic, easy peasy. *Shrug.*

Two things about the terrorist attacks that occurred on the 11th of September:

-Did not own a telly then. We had recently immigrated, and just hadn't gotten around to getting one. We were prioritising tables and chairs and beds. I woke up that day, a day off for me, and simply thought, 'Gosh, if something awful happened, how would I know? Would someone ring me? Which radio stations ought I have on in the background?' And dismissed the idea, made tea. A few hours later, my husband rang me. I reckon that one was coincidence. Scared me into crying, but, coincidence.

-I wrote a short story in my school's lit magazine when I was 17 that was lifted whole from a dream I had had. Details spared, it had rather a lot to do with a guy in a cave with a beard. I changed the bad guy to look like a prominent US figure known for extreme/unpopular 'Islamic' views, since this guy in a cave was totally unknown to me. That one, hrrm, that experience I find a bit harder to explain. (Yes I have the published story, wanna come see it? :) )

Best to just mind your own psychic business.

Bear with me here.
I once had a dream about the demon headmaster tv series. Now, ive never read any books or such, but i had watched the first series with my little sister. Well anyway, in this dream i basically plotted out the whole new series of the show with no background knowledge of it, and scared the shit out of my sis. We looked in the paper and the shows werent repeats or anythings sinister. So i had had one of the shittest premonitions in the world that could no way benifit me!! Fucksocks!

Melbourne Cup Day
I woke up on Melbourne Cup Day last year and my Mum was about to go to the betting place and wanted me to pick my horses. Being a lazy bugger I just said three random numbers and told her to put money on the corresponding horses. She told me to pick my horses properly but I have this strong feeling I should stick to the number I said when I first woke up. I looked at the form and only change one number because there was no horse with that number.
Anyway I got first a second place and highest profit I'v ever had on the cup.
I sort of the did the same thing this year but picked more horses so it wasn't as unlikely I still made profit though because I put twice as much on the winner.
