  1. I had a personal experience tuesday morning at about 05:00...

    I was driving to the Walgreens pharmacy due to an intense sinus headache, planning on buying some Nyquil. I knew I was sick but all of a sudden i became severely nauseous and stopped the jeep to get out and lose my cookies. I woke up lying on the pavement beside a huge puddle of upchuck, i looked up at the sky and saw the beautiful stars but I was too weak to get up. 

    I was on my back in the middle of the busiest intersection in my city, I slowly got up and scanned my surroundings. I was in the middle of the intersection of two 4 lane streets, strip malls and street lights all around me where shining bright... but no cars, no humans, nothing but neon lights and sodium vapor lights as far as the eye could see!

    This was one of the oddest experiences I ever had made even more surreal by the total lack of other humans. Suddenly I felt like i was at the start some sort of apocalyptic Science fiction movie. Really strange, As I slowly stood up to climb back in my jeep I thought how great it would be if a cop showed up. 
     

     

    really odd to wake up laying in the city's busiest intersection and see no other humans.

      It was weird! I used to spend a lot of time fishing at night and coming and going to the beach at all hours of the night and I never saw the streets this deserted. Wilmington, NC has 117,000 people, the county has 229,000 people including Wilmington, not exactly metropolis but it seemed like no one was home the morning of the 1st.

      Even more troubling if you woke up to find Rod Serling standing over you, saying ...
      "You're travelling through another dimension, a idmension not only of sight and sound, but of mind ..."

      Get yourself checked out, and get better.

      I'm fine now @MigL, weird experience for sure. If I had seen Rod Stirling I think I would have vapor locked!
