A few of my parts have just ... disappeared. I build with them one day, and the next ... I can't find them. I think they rolled away and got eaten by a cat.

Sometimes, on Friday the 13th, when the planets are aligned, and theres a blue moon, all of my 2006 sets start gathering in small groups and square dance. Other than that little happening, not many significant things have happened :\

Yes... there was a Jaller Calix I was customizing, and I was going from my computer to my workbench in the other room... straight shot, right? Didn't go anywhere else. Didn't do nothin' else. That was, oh, four years ago? It vanished. Haven't found it since. Have completely cleaned the one room twice and remodeled the other room. Never saw it again. No idea how that happened, just glad it wasn't a customer mask. - Heir

Don't blink. Don't even blink. Blink and you're dead. They're fast, faster than you could believe. Don't turn your back, don't look away, and don't blink. Good luck. No, I haven't. I once had a Rhotuka vanish into thin air, though. Same thing happened with Bulk's wrist blade, actually.I blame the cracks in reality. Blasted Silence.

Oh mine move all the time, I don't dare disturb their work. Sometimes they talk to me, tell me to do horrible things to innocent people, I don't dare disobey. jk but seriously, nothing like that happens to me much. If it does though I can usually find a rational explanation for it.

I can guarantee that any seemingly random configuration of letters that you came up with to create the name of your OC has already been used for something far more embarrassing.

First of all, correction: Bionicle is a noun refering to a story, life cycle, and branch of the LEGO group, there is no "s". And as for my experiences, I once saw my Takadox (in April, 2007) turn his glowing head to look at me at night. And my MOCs seem to change direction slightly overnight. How do I know? Stop motion. I left the MOCs and camera in the same spot, and when I turned it on in the morning, I found that they had moved and slightly (but noticably) shifted the angles of their limbs. One of them even had it's mask off...

I was posing my Zaktan, a couple Inika, and a couple other BIONICLE, and then I left my room for a couple of minutes. No one else was near my room. I came back ten minutes later to find my Jaller's arm hanging from Zaktan's blade. I asked my sister if she touched them, but she was never up there. She was with my Mom the whole time, so she couldn't have possibly touched them.

I once put a couple of sets on a shelf, before a trip to Japan. When I came back, both sets had moved up a shelf. The cool thing is, that the sets were the Jetrax and Axalara.

I have most of the parts of him today. But the Wierd thing is,There is like no way he fell from the Window,Becaus he would have fallen into the Graden the People in the Lower Floors have,But he fell in the Parking lot sone.

Yeah, all my Makuta congregate in the corner of my room with their hands over their masks :P Well, Lohkar, one of my MOCs, falls off my desk about twice a day, but that's about it.

Why are orange and black such a good color Combination ? Purple is pretty, and so is blue. Pink hurts your eyes, green is quite mellowing, black is very threatning, red is cool, orange is SO awesome, yellow's hard to read... But you can't see white at all! Oh, wait. I forgot brown.

Here's my thoughts: If a person tells the truth and says, " I always lie," Is he lying? Or is he telling the truth? And what has a mouth, but no head, and a body, but no torso? Do caterpillars like to tend to supporting colum of stone's every need? Or is that name misleading by nature? Speaking of nature, why are the children of animals called offspring? don't many young beasts come alive in spring, and thus, should be called onspring? Heeeeeeyy..... I got the first post on a page for the first time. Who knows; it may happen again. What the... It did happen again... and again...

Well this isn't really 'paranormal,' per say, but one time I did throw a Rahkshi staff piece just randomly and it hit a plant, which proceeded to squirt sap into my eye (it wasn't far from my face). Unfortunately it wasn't Lehrahk's, otherwise that would've been awesome.

Well, bodies at rest typically stay at rest (unless acted upon by an external force, obviously), so beyond the movement from, say, gravity or people, I've got to say no. Now, my sets occasionally scream at me due to a curse I placed on them--but there's no movement involved. ~ BioGio

well, once i was posing stormer 3.0 hanging on a branch outside, and i turn around to get the camera, stormer falls, and lands on his feet 0_O

I had roughly the same thing happen with Onewa Hordika a few years back. Left him standing on a table, and just as I came back into the room, he fell off, landed on his feet - and even seemed to bend his knees to cushion his fall. I know it was just gravity acting on him as he landed, but it still looked like such a natural movement that it caught me by surprise at the time.

This happened when I was a new member. My original Makuta Dralcax MOC (not a self MOC, my username at the time was krakua91 and I changed my name to my MOC name much later), and a Visorak I had rebuilt with different colors and a GITD spinner, were both posed on the top shelf of a bookcase at the head of my bed. I woke up with the Visorak jammed between the bed and the wall, the Rhotuka on my pillow, and Dralcax in a slightly different pose. I know the Visorak had simply fallen off and knocked Dralcax's leg, but it looked like they had gotten into a fight overnight.

Recently I was making a stop motion that used Gresh stars, and he wouldn't stand. I got really mad at one point and said(almost a shout): "My god, can't you just stop being difficult for 5 minutes!?" Then in his current position he stood up, and didn't fall over again for about 5-6 minutes. O_O

I posed Hahli Mahri and Takadox on a shelf once. I left my room and when I ret-urned, they were on the floor, Hahli with her claw in the air and Takadox flat on his face. Not anything para-normal though, just the wind and weak lime green joints.

Wormholes, wormholes everywhere. Anyway, Once, a while back(i think in 04 or 05)me and my friend were playing with my sets outside, and we could've sworn they were moving whenever we weren't looking at them, creepy stuff man. and more recently, maybe a year ago, i was on the computer downstairs with a MOC beside me, and it suddenly fell off the desk, this has happened sometimes when i hit the desk with my leg, but this time i didn't, and i don't think my dog could have hit it, cause the desk was completely still. ~ELM~
