If kids actually have the ability to "float" down stairs and "fly" like some people think, somebody would have gotten it on tape by now.

It's nothing but childhood dreams.

I remember falling down the stairs head first (about 6 steps) and getting up and laughing about it.

I tried it again and it didn't feel so good when i did it on purpose  disgust.gif

The great clown Pagliacci is in town tonight. Go see him. That should pick you up." Man bursts into tears. Says, "But doctor... I am Pagliacci." Good joke. Everybody laugh. Roll on snare drum. Curtains. " - Rorschach

I don't think I've ever floated down the stairs but I remember falling down the stairs a few times when I was younger.

I've always had a strange memory. When I was around maybe four, I used to enjoy seeing if I could get down the stairs in as few steps as possible. Well one day I decided to go for it big time. I leapt from the very top step, and landed at the bottom of the stairs perfectly well and unharmed, as if I'd just jumped down one step. I vividly remember just sort of gliding down the stairs.

I was reading in article the other day in Paranormal magazine and the writer of the article had a similar experience where he fell down the stairs, bounced down each step and landed at the bottom unharmed. He says he did some research and its quite common and a lot of people have memories like his or like mine. Even the editor of that magazine recalls it.

I then googled this and found a few random forum topics by people who have a memory like this.

Does anyone else recall floating dow

I have never "floated" down the stairs as a kid, but I do remember having some dreams where I rapidly flew down them and then woke up when I hit the bottom. Like some others have said in here, I too played on the stairs with my toys from time to time, and Hell, I even ended up falling down the stairs and hurting my neck pretty good :hmm: But anyway, saying that kids could just magically "float" down the stairs without realizing it sounds pretty silly, doesn't it?

i've had dreams my bed could breath, and i had a dream where i kept opening a door and there was an endless number of doors in the door frame, and i remember that if i could kick really fast in the hallway at my old house i could float up and down the hallway, now i'm gonna make a movie about a house where all this stuff actually happens

I never had stairs in any of the houses I've lived in so this whole thread just makes me feel left out ;_;

Pretty cool experience. Too bad you can't it again. I've heard a few stories of people (adults and children) who were supposed to take a pretty bad fall, but *somehow* managed to come out of it unharmed.

Do you remember the stories of the kid that dressed up like superman and jumped out a 2 story window and died?  Can anyone confirm that story?

Memories of stairs and hallways like that are usually just childhood dreams. I've always had dreams as a kid of my bed spinning really fast and then I would wake up.

That's right. Grasp at straws now. Certainly no kid could ever tell the difference between a dream and waking reality once they wake up. And even if by a small chance they couldn't, common sense says they'd realize it was a dream as they got older.

Imo, these memories aren't "real". They may have happened, but are being remembered differently than they actually occurred. Stairs are often seen as dangerous places for kids (and adults too), so I think it would be reasonable to say that some of us want to connect a kind of "mystery" to them. We've all gotten hurt on the stairs before (*cough*, some of us more than others <img src="http://www.unexplain...IR#>/laugh.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":lol:" border="0" alt="laugh.gif" />), and I think it's within our nature to want to remember our experiences different. Seems strange, considering that stairs are everyday, mundane things, but every kid I've ever met has had such a strange fascination with them. They're the only toy a kid needs. For most of my childhood I played on the stairs like they were the only things I ever had (they were the only place I played in the house in general, with toys and without). I personally don't remember ever having "floated" down the stairs (I never, ever, walked on stairs until I was about ten, I always crawled up and down them because, guess what, I was terrified of falling. <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/laugh.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":lol:" border="0" alt="laugh.gif" />)

Anyway, summing it all up: stairs are a mystical place for a lot of kids. I think it's natural that we'll, at some time or another, want to connect a mystery with them, in some way, regardless of whether or not it really happened.

See above.

Wel, this thread was started in 08 and the OP has since left, but here's my story anyway. It had to do with stairs, but not going down them.

From the time I was 7-12 I was obsessed with basketball, both the NBA and shooting around with my friends and myself. My grandmother was very lenient so whenever it had gotten too dark or too cold/hot outside, I'd be allowed to play inside with a hoop on a closet door as long as a use a toy ball instead of an actual basketball. Once at around 8 I'm doing my nightly thing. My mom had went to her boyfriend's and my grandmother was reading a newspaper. So after about 10 minutes I go for a layup and as my feet leave the ground it was if gravity stopped working and everything around me slowed down. I touch the top of an at least 10 foot door and with ease safely land at the 2nd to last step on the stairs next to the closet to the upper level of my home. As I'm standing on the stairs, my mouth is open and I couldn't believe what happened. I'm still in awe to this day. Like I said, my grandmother had a newspaper in front of her face so nobody saw me.

Let me debunk you skeptics before you waste your time. The following are 2 things I no doubt expect some to grasp at straws for as Fell and Ebonykrow have shown us.
"BUT WATE! U MUST HAVE BEEN TALLLL!" Seriously, if I was one of those 5/6 foot kids growing up before I turned 13 do you really think that I would be that dense to go out of my way to post this story? If anything, I'm a short guy. Was always about around a foot shorter than my peers.

"BUT WATE!" U MUST B ON SUM SORT OF MEDASIN 4 DELOOSHUNS! OR U PASABLY SUFUR FROM SEZURS AND ACTULY R NOT PROPORLY MEDIKATED!" As with my last point, I wouldn't bother posting if I was.

But if it hasn't happened to you skeptics first hand, there must be a "logical, scientific explanation".

I have the distinct childhood memory of pitching headfirst over the railing that runs around the top our front stairs and falling in slow motion straight to the bottom, possibly hurting my arm bad in the process.
I think I remember slipping past the lower stair railing and landing off to the side of stairs, but it's almost impossible to do that without hitting the railing unless you did some fancy twisting. Obviously it must've been a dream but the recollection was persistent enough for years that I had to ask my mother whether anything like that had actually happened to me.

"logical, scientific explination" warning: it is possible for people to acomplish amazing feets of self propulsion, just watch cirqe du soliel, sometimes untrained people, mostly young people because they have not yet accepted such things as physically impossible, can pull off these amazing jumps, it is very rare that this happens, and you are fortunate to have landed safely, but this does happen sometimes, and it is not in any way paranormal, the slowing down would have come from the adrenaline rush such a feat would produce
