Leaks are sometimes very difficult to see, but I have to say that TVs are a strange place to have water. Plastic bags are strange - particularly if hung up behind an inside door. Maybe keep an eye out and perhaps talk to whatever is there if you find some more.

Thanks for listing these! They are chock full of information.

The presence of water - small puddles on the floor, droplets that can be felt on the skin, splashes from above, and other phenomena, are well known in the paranormal community.

I know a psychic medium who thinks that pools of water are signs from John the Baptist. She has some fairly compelling reasons why. I think it's an interesting angle. I'll read more, hopefully, when she completes her book.

Since this is not the plumbing forum, or the condensation forum, I think most people come here to find an alternative reason for activities that defy conventional thought.
Some of the reasons for water pooling in the links that oicupaul shared, were boarderline laughable.

There isn't a "scientifically rational" reason for everything. Trying to an unusual connect event to something scientific or "rational" begins to sound crazy when the causes are so far-fetched.

No different from someone who can't find their car keys and immediately assign their disappearance to a ghost, evil spirit or a poltergeist.

Some people somnambulate and don't know it. Some of these overnight, strange occurrences might be attributed to the "witness's" own actions. Day-time "blackouts" can be an explanation as well. Someone frequently experiencing these "events" might want to rule out organic or psychological causes in themselves just to be cautious.

Ok so I had to look up the word 'somnambulate'. Sleepwalking. Now I know where the word 'insomnia' comes from so thanks for that. And the name of the sleep aid drug, Somnil.

I've actually seen somnambulation in action. As innocuous as a kid going for a pee in his sleep. In the dark. Other people will get up and go eat - turning on lights and all - in their sleep and know nothing about it. Murders have been committed in this state, even someone driving somewhere and killing someone. That's of course rare.

Sleepwalking may well explain many strange occurrences, now that you've mentioned it.

Read a book called "Passing Strange" by Joe Citro. There is a story in there about a family plagued by unexplained water in their house in Windsor, VT, in the 1950's.

I would put another plastic bag up and see if it happens again. A person can sleep walk and not know it. as for the other one, I imainge it was done by the cat.

If the afterlife means I have to worry about finding a toilet when I have to go, and the possibility of carrying my prostate problems with its middle of the night awakenings into the next world, I'm not sure I'm all that keen on it.

No problem with the hassle of hunting for a toilet. Just piddle on the floor wherever you'd like.
