This sounds like a Yahoo Answers question, but I need advice from more intelligent people than the regular dumbasses that lurk there.

While I'm typing this and before, I've heard three loud bangs and what seemed like a faint scream along with a whistling noise that went on for about an hour (only the whistling). Then a power outage struck, and now all I have is my laptop and my flashlight. Don't call me a pus5y, because A) It's 2:00AM here, B) I'm thirteen, my dad's out of the house and my mom's sick, C) My cell phone's dead and the home phones won't work due to power outage, D) Another bang just went off, and E) You can't see sh1t outside my room. I'm just hoping the bangs are engines backfiring or something, not gunshots.

Regardless, I have no idea what to do as of the moment, and the fourth bang just now was alarmingly loud. I think it was close to my house. I have a sword to protect me, but I don't possess any firearms (XD). I'm probably getting overly paranoid, but I had no idea wtf is going on as of the moment. The only way I could get my mind off of things was listening to some MrCreepyPasta. Have you guys ever been in a situation like this? How'd you deal with it? Whatever the case, I don't think I'm going to get any sleep anytime soon.

Make sure all your doors are locked, but I'm sure you will be okay. Do you guys have a home phone? If you do, keep that with you.

I've had a similar experience. Behind my house is a little used road. Once when I was about 12 and home alone I went outside late at night for one reason or another and there was a creepy looking man dressed in all white standing there and as he saw me he raised a hand as if to say hello. I don't think I've ever been so creeped out and I definitely didn't sleep that night at all

I mean, unless you live in a really dangerous neighborhood loud bangs are extremely unlikely to be gunshots and even if they were it's extremely unlikely that whoever fired will come after you too.

Even if they're gunshots, you're still probably safe. It's the quiet you have to be scared of. Just prepare yourself so you feel safe but don't miss too much sleep.

Actually some people will say this is a bad Ideal, but if you want to get rid of your fear go outside and figure out what it is. If it.s a banging and the electricity went out it's probably just a transformer blowing.

Watch out, dumbasses lurk here also. Make sure your house is throughly sealed, just in case. It's probably some thunder or something. If it is gunshots, they would be close together. If you can, call somebody using the landlines (assuming you have a backup generator.) Lay low and avoid being seen if the bangs get very close to your house.

Keep all the doors locked. If you feel more comfortable having your sword/any weapon within arms reach, go ahead. See if you can find a flashlight or candle or something.

Assuming that someone is firing a gun, they have a target. Obviously, otherwise they wouldn't have fired that gun. If nothing around you has been hit by a gunshot, then either A) you're not the target or B) they're such a bad shot that a sword would be an adequate defense weapon against them.

I'm not gonna lie, gunshots are scary whether they're directed at you or not, but you probably don't have a reason to worry. The only way you would become a random target is if someone were shooting in a public place or if there was a serial killer who picked your house. A serial killer wouldn't be firing off a gun outside your house, and a public shoutout doesn't usually affect those in their homes.

Tl;dr they're not shooting at you, so don't worry.

I'm not gonna lie, gunshots are scary whether they're directed at you or not, but you probably don't have a reason to worry. The only way you would become a random target is if someone were shooting in a public place or if there was a serial killer who picked your house. A serial killer wouldn't be firing off a gun outside your house, and a public shoutout doesn't usually affect those in their homes.

Tl;dr they're not shooting at you, so don't worry.

Lol, I'm not silly enough to think they're going to shoot me. Fifth gunshot (I'm just going to call that from now on) just now, by the way. What the hell is going on...

Executions. Is the KKK very prominent around where you live? :P

A) I am not black
B) I'm pretty sure they're not
C) If they do, there's a white trench coat in the closet. I'll just wear that and blend in with them.

Lol I'm just kidding.

I mean if it's guns, honestly it's something more like executions, because a gun fight would involve multiple successive shots, even if just a few of them. Also, if it's been going on for a while, and the police haven't been called then it's probably not gunshots. It still could be gunshots, but even a car door closing can sound like a gun shot if someone slams the door hard enough (not super hard actually).

I highly doubt it's a car closing at 2:00AM. Especially five times.
Here's the timing of the supposed gunshots approximately:
Gunshot 1: 12:37AM (I was at my desktop at the time so I remember)
Gunshot 2: 1:04AM
POWER OUTAGE
Gunshot 3: 1:36AM (switched to laptop)
Gunshot 4: 1:58AM
Gunshot 5: 2:04AM

What is this sh1t. Actually, I'm pretty sure gunshot 2 and maybe 3 weren't gunshots, but gunshot 4 was loud enough to scare the sh1t out of me. :X

Well, I'm just going to try and get some sleep. Quarter exams tomorrow, too. Just my luck this had to happen during exam week...

If your power is out, and you are hearing loud bangs both before and after, I'd guess it's a power transformer that's blown. The banging is probably power shortages occurring in the main transformer. Happens sometimes around my area when the power goes out from a lightning storm during the summertime. It's the same pop you would hear if a wall outlet in your house blew or shorted out, except on a much larger scale since it's a major power outage.

Other than that, your sword should take care of anything short of a gun. Even if an intruder has a gun, you have the element of surprise in your own home. You could easily position yourself to a prime location behind a door, and the moment he comes through - drop the blade through his shoulder. If you aren't tall enough, go for the leg. If you desire for a fatal attack, then just go for the neck or skull if the blade is sharp enough.

Cheers!

Why do I get the feeling if this kid's dad comes home from work early he's getting a sword through the neck.
