    A friend (who happens to have an inactive account here) IM-ed me a question, and I started replying:

    But then I started going wayward:
    Other methods I told him:
    - highlight letters in a newspaper that form your message
    - rent a billboard
    - haunt their dreams
    - letter via carrier pigeon (don't let the fact that they're extinct stop you)
    - spread a rumor and hope the person hears the rumor
    - hack a traffic sign
    - post a /b/ GET milestone containing the person's contact info and the message
    - use a black hole as a quantum computer
    - record yourself miming and put it on youtube (or even better, interpretive dance)
    - tattoo the message on your forehead

    so I ask you: what are some "ordinary" means of communication?

    Ouja boards frighten me.. Strange experience. Subtly strange.. but strange nonetheless.

    With another. Felt a strange burst of energy and then my friend said that my eyes looked crazy and the tone of my voice changed.. as we were chanting. I've not done it since. Could have been nothing.. but then again it could have been something.

    This may sound strange, but your are probably very sensitive to the sort of psychic energy embodied in a ouija board. I have seen similar to what you describe before.
    There is another, more 'safer' kind of board termed a 'psychic circle'. It doesn't have the same feel as a ouija board.

    Haha! 'gentle.' Because a non-gentle does communicate a totally different sentiment, yes!
