We have had a very strange neighbor that has lived by us for a pretty long time. Well all of a sudden, we stop seeing him for approx 5-6 months. So one of my other neighbors called the police to check out the house. To make a long story short...they found him dead in the garage. They believed that he commited suicide by gassing himself with the fumes from his car. The scary thing is that I live within a 100 ft. of that house and I celebrated my 16th b-day in my backyard while he was dead in there.

Wow. That is a pretty creepy thought...While you were eating cake, and laughing it up, your neighbors festering corpse decomposed just a little bit more inside of his car. Sounds like something from a Chuck Palahniuk book. Very interesting story...Did you know your neighbor at all?

Actually. I didn't. He was a hermit that stayed inside all the time. Another thing thats interesting is that he always had really expensive cars and stuff. He also had a garage sale a while ago and he was like selling all of his stuff. Almost like he was preparing for it. It's so sad though. He was a loner and didn't see to have any family or friends. The other thing that is soo wierd, is that his body was lying on his back next to the car. He wasn't inside of his car. The car door was also left open.

I have barely seen some of my neighbors. But in my case, it's me who won't leave the house (computer).

Well actually he haven't smelt anything at all before it was discovered. My mom, a neighbor and two police officers walked up to the garage to check it out. The police officer told the other one to hold the garage door up while he would look under the door with his flashlight. As he lifted the garage door, some clear liquid came out. My mom thought it was water but it turned out to be body fluid. The cop peeked under and his face went white and quickly told the other cop to close the garage door. It turned out that the cop was looking at the dead guys head so he knew of course that something was up. I didn't know the guy at all. I would only see him drive in and out of his driveway with his expensive cars and such. He was a security officer and other things but he only worked night shifts. He has been dead for 5-6 months. Anyways, they opened the garage door all the way and I could smell the zombie corpse from across the street. My friend snuck into a nearby backyard and saw the guy. He said that he was pale white and could see his face. Another creepy thing to mention is that he had a photo studio set up in his garage in which one of the neighbors kids took pictures at his house. EDIT: I need to take pics of the house and show u guys. It is VERY creepy looking!

Nope. Im guessing because he was a loner and had no friends and family.

A couple of years ago - in a house across the road from me two people were found dead, they had killed each other and their bodies weren't found for several weeks.

Several years ago down the cul-de-sac my house is in a guy put a screwdriver through his neck (not quite sure how), but an air ambulance landed in the tennis courts near the bottom of my garden to air-lift him to hospital.

Three years ago I witnessed my dad fall from a ladder and crack his head open, I ran over to him and blood was spilling all over the floor and he was unconscious, his eyes had also rolled to the back of his head which was really scary, genuinely horrible to see. I completely cried for help (it was well passed midnight) and ran outta the house and down the road to the ambulance station (about 30 ft from my house). Literally screamed the doors down and well.. as they say, the rest is history, several hours later he was joking about the fall in hospital, although he was still finding it hard to remember peoples names and now he finds it hard to remember faces and names.

Many more things, even last week, a pikey was threatening to stab his girlfriend in the head just outside my house.

I hate pikeys.

There was a family I knew and I was sort of a friend with one of their sons. One morning the dad woke up and shot the two sons then shot himself in the head with a shotgun. It was pretty sad I didn't know them that well, but still stuff like that is sad and weird.

I have a neighbor like that *I think most of us do* but they stay in their house most of the day and only come out to really work on their yard. They were also cat people and called us after our dog died saying that they were so glad because now their cats could be outside safely.

I have a neighbor whom I haven't seen in over two years, but for some reason Ben still mows her lawn, and for some (obvious) reason he still doesn't get paid.

We all have a hermit, they're the foundation of our society.

And when my dog died, after being hit right in front of my house, as me and my brothers were lifting her into a box to take to a pet center, another neighbor came out of her house laughing "What you kids got there? A bunch of drugs? You trying to smuggle drugs, eh?" It was a joke, but needless to say it was at the absolute wrong time.

Once my mom, who is a real estate agent, was at a meating. Then one of her co-workers, who was apparently unliked said: I have something to say. Jokingly, everyone was making fun and were like: oh, what could you have to say. Kind of friendly joking though. Then he said: my son just shot someone last week. Then the man started crying. Can you imagine that?

By the way, what's a pikey?

A pikey. Good question. Some people call them gypsies (or gyppoes), others call them travellers. They're quite similar to carnie folk, only they don't necessarily accompany a funfair.

I was on a wild night out and a man was stabbed to death in the next street.
I went out for a meal with friends in a nearby village the other week, and just after we left, a siege began which lasted for a couple of days, and ended with a guy being shot by police.
Most worryingly, a nuclear power station where I used to visit (with my job) was found to have really poor safety standards and lots of leaks...

Looks like the house from Malcom in the Middle. That would be sweet to have a backyard like that. I would have a killer fort.

Alright. We got the police report. It turns out that he was holding a Dan Wesson .357 Magnum in his left hand. We know that he was alive up to November. I think that he shot himself on New Years and everybody thought it was a very large firework. There was also a Rugar Vaquero .45 Cal laying about 4 - 5 ft away from him. The ignition keys were left in the car and the right passenger door was open. So actually, I bet that he was holding the gun in his hand just incase the fumes from the car would take to long to kill him. He quit his security job in October and never returned his police equipment.

Well no ones ever commited suicide in my neighborhood. Though there was a kid down the street who overdosed on drugs but they think it was an accident. Anyways yeah there has been alot of death's in my neighborhood. All accidents. 5 I think. One of my good friends sophocated after he crawled in a hole and it callasped. And we have no hermits which is too bad because we have no one to create rediculously false but exciting stories about. Though there is a house across the street that looks like it might be haunted. Or maybe its just cuz the lawn hasnt been mowed in a year and half. Anyways, If anybody in my neighborhood commited suicide I'd be really suprised cuz they're all friendly. I know everyone by name.

I personally spend most of my days in Warring frontlines, seeing humanity at it's worst first-hand is a pretty day to day experience for me.

I'm stationed out in de_dust2 for most of the day, you know - keeping the peace and stuff though recently my unit has shifted it's post to a spawn point in Omah. Since we moved the amount of attacks on our position has almost tripled, ranging from small arms fire to full on artillery strikes on our position. It's pretty crazy, Yesterday I witnessed my good friend Dave take an artillery hit to the face sending him a good 20ft up in the air then back down into the ditch in which I had taken cover, his cold dead eyes starring into mine.

Luckily however, I had my defribulators on me which I hurriedly rushed out of my pockets and onto Dave's chest, reviving him instantly. He Thanked me and then the battle continued, We're currently mid Omah awaiting both a supply drop and a UAV before we progress. Hopefully we'll get a spawn camp grip on our opposition and the tickets will be over by christmas.

War is Hell.

My neighbor dissapeared for a few months. Turned out he splashed hot corn on his face on accident while cooking. He was out for so long because he is in his 80's.

For a few months? Did he just live on the kitchen floor, eating roaches?

and HOT CORN? Like... popcorn? I mean, seriously, Hot Corn?

If he was in his 80's, how would he survive a few months?
There are flaws in your story.
