My huge collection of paranormal-themed askreddit threads

My huge collection of paranormal-themed askreddit threads

Here it is folks, my collection (so far) of paranormal-themed askreddit threads. I've separated them according to the amount of comments. I stopped adding to it a couple months ago, so any new threads created since then are not included. Also, at the end I added some askreddit posts that may be of interest if you enjoy this sort of stuff; like unsolved mysteries, scariest thing police officers/paramedics/whoever has experienced, or scary true story threads. Enjoy! Please feel free to add a link to any I have missed! Disclaimer: I have not read through every single one of these.
