Weirdest Glitch in the Matrix Stories


Lyla Boretz, Reporter

With weird conspiracy theories constantly floating around the internet, it’s not surprising that one of them is about the world actually is a government simulation. Real or not, these stories will have you wondering if everything is really as it seems.

Teleporting Cellphone

“My friend and I were talking to our roommate and her girlfriend one night. Roommate had just received her new phone and was sitting in bed using it while the four of us chatted.
So, our roommate had sat her phone down while we were all chatting. She goes to pick it back up and it’s gone! Like, she had just sat it down for a few minutes tops before she noticed that the thing has poofed. I call it for her and we can’t hear it. We take the comforter and sheets off the bed and shake them all out. We look under the bed, behind it, EVERYWHERE we can. That phone is GONE. Even though we hadn’t left her room at all during our conversation when the phone disappeared, we tore apart the whole apartment trying to find it.
Finally, we decided to try her car.
It was in the locked trunk.
We lived on the third floor and were all in the same room watching her use it before it teleported.”

Wacky Hands

“I was putting makeup on and from the corner of my eye, I saw what looked like the shadow of a hand slap down onto my nightstand. Would’ve dismissed it as my brain playing tricks on me or something, but I heard it too, and it sounded like a really loud smack.

Was weird but I’ve experienced so many small unusual incidents like this (things randomly falling, or shaking) so I guess I’ve become apathetic to it. That was the first time I ever actually heard the thing too though.”

Psychic for an Hour

“To this day I cannot explain what happened. I was watching TV with my friends and we landed on some old ’80s movie I used to watch over and over but hadn’t seen in a long time. I had the dialogue memorized and it all instantly came back and I knew what was going to be said next.

Here’s the freaky part — we changed channels and kept trying to find something to watch. I noticed that everything we watched was the same — I knew every line of dialogue as if I was remembering it from having memorized it. These were all things I had never watched before!

Here’s the really freaky part — it started happening even when my friends were talking. An instant before they said anything, I knew word-for-word what they were saying. The effect only lasted an hour or so but it was bizarre!”

Sharp Bend

“When I was like 10 or 11 I was going to the beach with my aunt and her friends. There were two cars of ours. To get there, we had to go through a very large industrial area. We didn’t know the direction, so our car was following the other. Suddenly, they did an unexpected turn and so our driver had to take a sharp bend.

At that moment we heard a very clear, loud voice inside the car saying laughing “Sharp bend, hm?”. The driver immediately hit the brakes. We looked at each other, puzzled; we all recognized it as a voice not belonging to any of us.

At the very same time, we noticed that the other car has stopped as well. The other driver got out of the car with a scared face and shouted to us, “Did you hear that as well?”

They heard the very same thing inside their car. The area around was full deserted.”
