A friend told me of an odd experience he had a couple of weeks ago. I thought I'd share it here to see what others make of it.

My friend was driving his car along the local high street in the middle of the afternoon. There are roadworks along there so the traffic was moving quite slowly. Looking out the window at the people passing by, he noticed a man walking along the pavement going in the opposite direction. The man was very distinctive looking and had an odd fashion sense so he kind of stood out. As my friend drove slowly on up the road, after travelling on about 100 ft or so, he swears that he again passed the same man, who was still walking in the same direction as before. What really creeped him out was that this time the man turned to face him and gave him "an odd look".

My friend is very open to ideas and into the paranormal etc, but is not the kind of bloke to make things up. He wonders whether the strange man was in some kind of time slip. He asked me what I thought but I haven't a clue (other than suggesting that the man might have had an equally oddly dressed twin brother who was following on behind - not much help!).

What do you guys think? Has anyone else ever experienced anything like this? Or do you just think my friend's mind was playing tricks on him? :think:

Ooh how strange :headscratch:

Does seem as if a high proportion of "time slip" or paranormal phenomena occurs whilst people are driving judging by other things I've read.

I've only read about the "missing time" thing when it's been connected with a suggestion of alien abduction.
Funny how you never hear about time slips occurring when people are just pottering about at home. Mind you, I sometimes lose track of what day it is :?

Yeah, could have just been deja vu, of course. The thing going against that is that the man behaved differently the second time he was seen, when he turned and looked at my friend.
But the mind can create some pretty weird things I guess.

reminds me of "where 's the day gone" or " knowing you've driven somewhere but cant remember driving there" ,
and it aint nowt to do with drugs or booze (im sticking to that aswell )

happened to me driving to work, it was a 1 1/2 hour drive I arrived on time but have no memory of the drive I didn't realize it till I was pulling in to the parking lot.
But I have heard of people micro sleeping while driving and I think that is what happened to me.
Although what I have researched is , it doesn't last an hour as in my experience.



Microsleep

Microsleeps are brief, unintended episodes of loss of attention associated with events such as blank stare, head snapping, and prolonged eye closure which may occur when a person is fatigued but trying to stay awake to perform a monotonous task like driving a car or watching a computer screen.

Microsleep episodes last from a few seconds to several minutes, and often the person is not aware that a microsleep has occurred. In fact, microsleeps often occur when a person's eyes are open. While in a microsleep, a person fails to respond to outside information. A person will not see a red signal light or notice that the road has taken a curve, which is why this phenomenon is of particular interest to people who study drowsy driving. During a microsleep, a pilot might not be aware of flashing alarm lights in the cockpit.

Microsleeps are most likely to occur at certain times of the day, such as pre-dawn hours and mid-afternoon hours when the body is "programmed" to sleep. Microsleeps increase with cumulative sleep debt. In other words, the more sleep deprived a person is, the greater the chance a microsleep episode will occur.

People with sleep disorders often experience microsleeps, but pretty much everyone can have them, particularly if they are tired. It should be noted that “Excessive Daytime Sleepiness”, a well recognized symptom, is not the same as microsleep, although microsleep episodes often occur during periods of Excessive Daytime Sleepiness.

Researchers have tried to quantify microsleep times and episodes in an attempt to develop a diagnostic tool like the commonly used multiple sleep latency test. However, this has proven difficult and at this time there is no agreed-upon clinical tool for assessing micosleep.
