    There's nothing underneath us, we're next to the canal and the nearest railway line is on the other side. Occasionally RAF jets will fly over but not on this occasion. There aren't even any roads very close by. Something obviously caused a wobble, I'm not seriously suggesting it's a ghost though.

    I know ghosts don't exist, GDW, but it might be quite cool if they did...

    But I reckon it's dodgy plumbing.:(

    Is it a cat? Some pets like to do stand-up wee wees in a toilet. Apparently. :)

    Please folks please, let's be rational about all this.

    There's no other explanation - it's simply God moving in mysterious ways, reminding us unambiguously of his divine presence, in accordance with his unfathomable plan.

    Now let's have no more of these absurd "explanations" that quite frankly are grasping at straws. And whatever you do don't go attempting to investigate - that would be putting your faith to the test, which (as is written) is a big no-no.

    Have you floaters in your eyes? Do you wear spectacles with no surrounding frames?

    O ye of little faith and a background in the dismal science.
    It has to be an extreme event. Maybe it's the ghost of a past resident who died when they flushed a plane toilet while sitting, sweating, on it. Fear of flying and so on.

    What? No?

    I know it's not a ghost, it is weird though.

    I'm just trying to explain fleeting visions. I have floaters and frameless glasses and sometimes see ne'er-do-wells crossing outside my kitchen window.

    Nope, I sit on the fence as usual with the vague hope of persuasion and no ill wind.:D

    A gettersnipe, perhaps. When you're in the gutter you can look up and see more than women's knickers.

    Well, thanks for that. Guess who will be using the not haunted downstairs loo from now on.

    Tell us, if it happens again!

    And don't watch the Haunting of Hill House, whatever you do...although, there hasn't been a Phantom Pisser, yet.

    Oh, and be grateful it's only wee wee. :)

    I started watching HoHH, but about 4 episodes in I worked out the twist at the end and it all just became a bit sad for me, not the spooky thrill I was looking for.
    I love my paranormal stuff normally, but since working with a very well known psychologist whos done a lot of work on the paranormal, I'm 100% convinced ghosts don't exist. I just like pretending they do for a (safe) scare.

    I'm glad you've clarified @Orkrider2

    I didn't have you down as a credulous imbecile! I confess to becoming more than a little worried for a while.

    I spotted Rac's comment (e.g. "if you're seeing floaters, you need to get a more powerful flush"), but failed to spot the double-meaning in my own comment.

    I wonder if perhaps I'm beginning to attain that high-level ability of creating an innuendo subconsciously. It would be great if I was able to slip one in and give people pleasure, without effort.
