@SuricrasiaOnline When I was 14, I was sitting on the foot of my bed, watching MTV's FEAR (a pulpy and very 1999-flavored ghost hunting show). As it broke for commercial, the TV stayed dark for a bit too long, and then something started to gradually appear in the TV screen. I realized it was accompanied by a quiet but distinct sound of a man screaming, as if it was very distant, but not distorted by distance. I was some combination of too terrified to move my body and *unable* to move my body, and so I stared for about a minute as the face became more distinct and the scream became louder (but still quieter than you'd expect from a scream).
For size reference: The face was about the size of my fist. I have big hands.
Eventually I managed to break eye-contact and look down at the floor because I was too freaked out to keep staring at it. Then I looked back and the face had mostly disappeared already, and over the next second or two it dissipated completely, along with the screaming.
Nobody else has ever reported having a ghost-sighting like this, and MTV has never run anything even resembling it. And yes, I was wide awake for the duration. And it was daytime, and sunny. And I hadn't done any drugs. So what the fuck
