That's some imagination! Too bad it sounds too looney to be true.

Ooh, that belongs in a Creepy Thread. :D

'Next door a newly married young couple moved in and we heard screams in the night.'
It's called sex. Maybe you should try it sometime.

Sounds like a bad Stephen King novel.

Wingnuts across the pond, too, I see.

Get your ass to rehab all right.

Building a stone floor over an older wooden floor? My experienced with construction is limited, but that doesn't seem really sound to me. I smell a big fat lie...

Sounds like they need an exorcism - from a plumber!
9/26/2006 11:34:59 AM
ugh - they've got these twits in England too?

I'm with Axver - I totally expected this to be some 'sex is bad' rant after that point.

This has got \"urban legend\" written ALL over it. It's even less plausible than most.

\"Building a stone floor over an older wooden floor? My experienced with construction is limited, but that doesn't seem really sound to me. I smell a big fat lie... \"
Building a 2 storey building over a big stone room with an alter without anyone noticing is even less plausible.

AUDREY FARBER: And then, the strangest thing happened....
NICK DANGER: That usually goes along with just being married.

Hmm, a basement room with a stone table. That MUST have been a mortuary or a sacrificial killing site, huh? It could have been used for a wide variety of things.
Even if it was a mortuary, so what? Phantoms, demons and witchcraft are all creations of your imagination. You don't need to be afraid of imaginary beings. You don't need to be afraid of what a room may have once been used as. And, you don't need to be afraid of the dark. Grow up a little.

Well, I can tell you that a beam killed my teacher who was a wife beater. I mean, it´s not true, but everybody says idioticies in internet.
9/26/2006 3:29:20 PM
It's most certainly a lie/urban legend.
Note that the building is a rental. You can bet solid money that no landlord would permit someone to dig up the floor like that, even if the tenant HAD worked on the conversion. Hell, you can't even paint your apartment/flat without consulting the landlord.
And what flooring professional would put carpetting over flagstone? What the hell do you attach the carpet to? And how? You can't nail the carpet into stone. You have to nail it into a wood subfloor!

That wasn't a table. It was the capstone of an old abandoned well. Didn't you see \"The Ring?\"
On a more serious note, why were ancient ruins always used as places of ritual murder? How come this room (if it existed, which I doubt) couldn't have been a pantry or a root cellar or even some ancient pub? How do we know the table wasn't used for drying kachinka dolls? I just don't get why they always jump to the conclusion that it was always a OoOOoOoooooooOOO sacrifical altar.
hell, I bet Stonehenge was just the place where the Druids would gather on weekends and get wasted. After all, alcohol is far more common in history than ritual murder is.

\"Next door a newly married young couple moved in and we heard screams in the night. Next day we learned that they had been awoken by a feeling of intense cold and had been horrified by a green mist rising out of the stone flagged carpeted floor by the side of their bed. They sensed a ‘being’ in the mist\"
Sex and LSD tend to have that sort of effect.
9/26/2006 6:20:31 PM
I see I'm not the only one who thought that they overheard the young couple having sex. They probably asked them about the screams, and the embarassed couple made something up. Although the rest is clearly invented, so maybe there never really was a couple. Hm.
9/26/2006 9:39:55 PM
Getting an early start on Halloween, I see. But I've heard much better ghost stories than that. You have to make things sound at least a little plausible.

\"Whether the room had been used as a mortuary or for sacrificial killings was never established.\"
Because those are really the only two possibilities, right?
9/27/2006 12:57:12 AM
"The building had been nursing home at one time but the lack of entrance and the substantial ceiling forming the floor to the bedroom above led to the conclusion that it must predate the Nursing Home. Whether the room had been used as a mortuary or for sacrificial killings was never established."
how to you make a leap from "it was a nursing home" to "sacrifical killings"
