If you are watching television, and the signal cuts out to static, turn the TV off immediately. If you watch the static on TV for long enough, the static will suddenly pause. All sound in the room will cease; even the white noise of the TV itself will disappear. If this happens you must not look away from the screen. You will probably not notice at the time, before you lose your gaze on the TV, your body will freeze as well. Time around and with you have paused completely. Specks of the black and white dots slowly come to life, creeping slowly in seemingly random directions. Not static as you know it, but organizing themselves into a moving picture again in front of you. As the static returns to normal, and the white noise of the TV comes back, you will regain control of your body. You must never watch that television again. It will only play static, even when unplugged. If you watch the static any longer, these same events will reoccur, but with disastrous results. What exactly happens is unknown, as it is obvious that anyone that has been unfortunate enough to experience this has disappeared. It is rumoured that if one continues to watch the static again, or during their experience, looks away, the white and black specs will slowly start to move again, but you will not. Your eyes will then be permanently fixated on the screen as you watch the picture come back to life, and what seems to be your station’s signal return. You learn soon this is not the case, as all sound is still absent, and the picture on the TV shows a familiar surrounding: the room in which you sit. The only thing you see next is movement on the TV, as you see yourself from behind, and subsequently, the cause of your disappearance.

    “If this happens you must not look away from the screen.” Well I’m already fucked, what the hell would happen if I looked away and, I dunno, ran? Before my body froze anyways. And if my body ALREADY froze, then what’s the point of telling me not to look away?

    *head explodes*

    I think it would have been better without the rumor part at the end. That always gets me, if no one survives, then why are there even rumors about it? They would have to be wrong, or if they were right, then it would have to be a coincidence.

    Eh, not scary to me. If I were watching my old TV on sattelite, then I would FREAK. But I’m watching Netflix on my new TV, which I’ve never seen go static. Good pasta but it just doesn’t apply to me. 8/10.

    I would classify the static on the TV as the TV being possessed by a Class C Poltergeist, followed by an attack from Candle-You-Know-Who, who is a Class B Poltergeist (according to my own Ectology method.)

    I’ve always been intolerant of static, and even though I don’t get it on my digital television, whenever I do hear it, it freaks me out as I feel sparks are gonna attack me.
