    POLL: Year I Started to See and Hear Strange Things On TV
    Anon_124828 posted:
    I'm doing this because a few years ago I went through something that seems like sci-fi now that I look back. One day I just started seeing these strange commercials on TV I'm sure they were not real, they were too nasty, and also started to hear voices speaking back to what I was thinking to myself in my head, inside the TV and out of the air. If you read this and can provide your input please do. If anyone has any questions go ahead and ask, and thank you.

    Does anyone out there see strange images on the TV that are not obviously there like strange commercials or people and voices coming from the TV seem to answer one's own internal self-talk? (if you've gone through this you can relate) Which exact year did this start to happen?
