Anybody catch the live Halloween Ghost Hunters
show? I enjoyed it until the two girls started grilling the "Hunt for the Hunter" contestant. Actually, I enjoyed it until those two were on the screen at all. I mean, quit complaining about how your feet hurt, you're "missing Halloween" and aren't seeing any activity ~ I'm sure there are thousands of people who would LOVE to have taken your place.
I wasn't impressed with them having a "celebrity guest", that wrestler dude (lame SciFi tie-in), but atleast he was a bit knowledgeable and interested in what was going on. And when he freaked and took off I laughed my butt off! That was worth watching all the other boring parts for! :icon_lol:
The other one with the British folks seems a bit overdone (no offense). The show "A Haunting" is recreated, so it's not actually authentic.
None taken ~ I agree with you. Seems that every single place they go is "definitely haunted" despite any real evidence.:icon_roll But it's still entertaining to watch imho.
is definitely not authentic ~ entertaining yes, true nope. I've even seen a couple stories on there that I'd read and heard about elsewhere extensively, and they added elements to the story that were very dramatic but that I'd never heard of ~ seemed obviously added for effect and only effect. For instance, the one about Bobby Mack's nightclub ~ I've seen umpteen shows about that one, but when it was on A Haunting
was the first time I've ever heard that the handyman was "possessed by the spirits there" and attacked anyone or whatever he was supposed to have done. Yeah, right. I watched the first minute or two of that one and deleted it.
Anybody got any personal unexplained experiences????
A few. I'm not counting them as definitely caused by ghosts since, despite me actively trying to debunk them all, what I saw could possibly have been caused by something natural I simply haven't uncovered yet. But they sure were creepy.
For instance, when my mother was dying of cancer (at home ~ thank GOD for Hospice), I slept in the same room with her and would often fall asleep with the bedside reading lamp on. Not long before she died, I would almost get to sleep and would get an intense feeling of someone sticking their face in mine and staring at me, then a shadow would pass over my face scaring me and making me open my eyes and sit up. This happened repeatedly one night. The shadow was definitely too big to be a moth (even though we have some big ones here in Texas
~ this shadow was big and long like an adult hand and arm) and nothing was near the lamp that could have caused it ~ nearest curtains were five+ feet away, no other "flappy things" near. Seems iffy, but the feeling could have been from stress I imagine. Even though it sure didn't seem like a dream or somesuch since I wasn't ever fully asleep (it would happen only a minute or two after I closed my eyes), I'm not willing to throw that possibility out. Neither am I willing to throw out the possibility that it was someone coming to take Mom over.
Another time I kept hearing footsteps coming up the front porch steps of a house I lived in for a short while. Atleast half a dozen times it happened over the course of the month or two I lived there. The footsteps were heavy, loud, and clear as day and I was wide awake each time. They always seemed to happen at the same time at night, too. The house had a violent history ~ husband shot and killed his wife and her lover there when he came home and caught them. I didn't know this until after I'd heard the footsteps a few times and mentioned them to my roommate who owned the house. Nothing outside near the steps that I could find to cause it. The house was pier and beam though, so maybe settling. IMHO the "beats" were too regular to be just a house settling, but still the possibility is there.
I've had a couple other experiences that I can't explain. I'm not putting my hand on a bible and swearing they were ghosts, but so far I can't explain them in any way that makes more sense. Occam's razor and all that.
I am still not convinced it was a ghost though. Our mind is so powerful. It could have been my mind showing me a person. I find it all very interesting. I am not convinced that ghosts roam our earth but I can't prove they don't either
My thoughts exactly. But it sure is fun to think that they might be real. :icon_cool :red_mouth
