So this happened and I am so confused. Put mug next to sink. Ran to store. Come back 20 mins later and find this, scattered from end to end, wall to wall in my kitchen. 3 ppl home and awake and no one heard anything. 3x as much water on everything than was in there to start. Wasn't thrown cuz it wouldn't be that shattered and scattered. Looks like it exploded but how?? Why? What could cause this ?

It was literally turned to dust and rubble all across the kitchen - it wasn't hot/cold by the stove/a.c not an animal/human wasn't wet and slid I have pics if anyone wants.

I personally do not feel anything in my home. It's in a little town in NEPA that my sister owned and her husband's family had owned for 40 years before that. It is a half double opened into one, my sister had bought the other side about 15 yrs back. Nothing was reported by them.

My estranged husband hated this house, calling it an energy vampire. Saying something was wrong with it. During the time my sons gf lived here, things would move after they were set down, drinks moved across room, keys and object put in odd places. At that time you heard bumps and bangs and footsteps that I always attributed to the house being large, open and old. My husband would always say he saw a woman but I never saw anything. The strangest thing I've encountered was someone whistling at me when I was home alone.

Recently my roommates claimed to have taken a photo of a 'demonic figure' in the attic bedroom but are unable to produce the pic.

My roommates are getting freaked out and after the mug incident, I don't know what to tell them. I don't think it's paranormal but it's not out of the realm of possibilities. This house is odd, but has no feelings of being 'occupied'

As I finished writing the toilet seat slammed in an empty bathroom. Now I'm not sure what to think. Can anyone shed some light?

As for the mug. That could've resulted from stress fracture due to micro-bubble in it. Going from hot to cold will wear n tear on certain materials over time. Then they crack or shatter.†

From the whole gambit of information you provided, it sounds most likely that you are in a house rife with paranormal activity. I think more and more that with cable TV and particularly the internet that these things are 'rare' but not actually 'that rare'. If it is at a level you can not be comfortable with, then you might try paranormal protection techniques. That subject is not a specialty of mine, but you can learn more about those things on the internet and perhaps from other members on this forum.

Would the drinking glass at my place have exploded(not cracked or broken) due to wear/stress, it was empty sitting on the glass shelf,the glasses next to it were untouched,is that† scientifically proven or your opinion.I've never heard of it before it happened.

Maybe after you went out, someone else used the cup, left it full of water, left it closer to the edge + condensation = smash. Just an idea though

That would have been a possibility I would have considered had the mug been broken just near the counter. There is an island in the center of my kitchen that would have stopped the pieces from sliding into the places they were found†

Ok. I will post a few pics and†show where the mug was left and where debris was found

But it was not even glass. Can ceramic mugs explode like that?? I don't even know. I searched the internet a bit, and found nothing but I am not going to make a career out of it. But I can say I have never had or even heard of a ceramic mug exploding in all my born days and I'm a heavy coffee/tea drinker.

Iím not sure either. They can have similar molecular structure. I assumed it was a glass mug.†Are you just going by the photo? It does look pretty ceramicish. Hey @Dawnd713, what was the mug made of?†

Tim, I doubt it is a coincidence but the old Papameter spontaneously flew across the room and left a gouge in the drywall at the opposite end of the room. And upon further thought I believe it occurred just about the same time that shattered mug photo got officially posted.†
