    One of my favourite things about Reddit is the occasional 'what's the scariest thing that's ever happened to you?' threads that crop up in the askreddit subforum.

Nevertheless, there's a motherlode of first-hand paranormal accounts in there. n.b I can't take credit for this list, I've copied it from elsewhere, but you may find these threads worth a few hours, days or weeks of your time.

    I've had to put off reading these, as I have work to do and won't get a thing done if I even peek at those threads.
    I'm greedy and have to read them all at once. :p

    Thank you thank you thank you!
    Now if only this new iPad would stop throwing me back to the top of a Reddit post so that I have to scroll back down for what feels like forever to relocate my place in the thread. :crazy:

    Great collection, thanks for posting! Kind of wish I hadn't read this one As a kid, what's the creepiest thing you ever noticed about another kid's family? though! So many parents doing so many screwed up things to their poor children.

    This post was particularly bizarre though:

    Yikes, that's pretty weird. At least the kid was still alive.

    What's worse is that I've already upvoted some of the grosser ones when they were newly posted.
