Woman Finds Ex-Boyfriend In Her Attic 12 Years After Breakup

This is one of the weirdest things I've heard in a while.

It's right up there with odd Canadians hanging out in US centric forums. Wink

"Most everyone has heard of the mysteriously ghoulish "things that go
bump in the night." For one South Carolina woman, that "thing" was her
ex-boyfriend, who she found living in her attic more than 12 years after
they had broken up.

Tracy [last name withheld], a Rock Hill, S.C., resident and single mother of five, says she heard a thump from up above and saw nails start popping out from her bedroom ceiling Saturday, Yahoo! News reported.

Around 2:30 a.m. Tracy felt as if "something just ain't right," she told the Charlotte Observer. When she heard noises in the attic and saw nails popping out, she thought "there was some poltergeist stuff going on."

It wasn't the devil dancing on the ceiling. It was her ex-boyfriend, who had been living in her attic for...."

That's the same as egocentric, right?

Centered on one's self. Selfish. Derived from the latin words "ego" meaning "I,"

Philosophical theory stating that everyone is stranded in their own private universe and cannot truely know or be known by anyone else.

What do Canadians have to do with your story about South
by Ziks511 / September 14, 2012 2:45 AM PDT

Carolina? Are you having trouble with your mind jumping around, James, and inability to focus? I'd really suggest you see your doctor. It could be a sign of any number of serious problems, from poor neural circulation to early onset Alzheimer's ir Manic Depression. This may sound like a dig, but honestly, if you think there's a connection between those two things, there's something really wrong, and I would feel happier if you got a doctors advice.

This is not a put down or anything else except honest worry, and the hope there's nothing wrong.

None of the stories may be related, but one can't help notice how they all contain that element of "weird". See, some elements of Liberalism is wearing off on me. You should be proud. Happy

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
