I am not convienced nor married to the idea that the events are related. If I gave that impression I apologize. "house ghost" is as good an answer
as any, and I like it better than "torb is crazy", but I'll gladly accept the "torb is crazy" one if that is peoples concensus.
Again, the only reason I 'feel' there is a connection between these events is due to the simularity of the shadows when a shadow was experienced.
It's not much, but being there and experiencing these things as I did, the shadow was a common enough and strong enough thread to tie the events
together for me. That doesn't mean or prove anything. A series of non-related events is just as cool with me as not.
All of the events Can be explained away by some form of 'rational' explanation, and the 'rational' explanation is usually the easiest one.
Missing gloves are no big deal, happens all the time. Having the missing gloves turn up in a location that requires a ladder or a forklift to reach,
and having said gloves appear in said location while an Active search of the limited space in which the 'crime' took place is In Progress and No One
saw Anyone put said gloves in said freeky location is not so common.
A note about the metal floors of the fridge: if you dropped a fresh fish onto the floor of the fridge, its +5C degree body would melt through the
layer of frost and skin and scales of said fish would instantly freeze to the floor. If you grabbed the fish and lifted it off of the floor, you
would rip the skin and scales off (the ones that were stuck to the floor)
The only unprotected body part I ever had had the nerve to 'stick to the floor' was my hand (which were a Lot tougher than my feet) Within two
seconds my hands were frostbit and numb. No one was willing to experiment with their feet to see how long they could last bare foot in the fridge.
I'm not opposed to the idea that Humans carried out Pranks... but please keep in mind this is a small island in the middle of nowhere with a very
small population... everybody is bored and Gossips. Nothing remained 'secret' for very long there, Especially a good prank. No one ever admitted
to nor was accused of carrying out the 'pranks' I've documented here...
Creating a cannon to shoot water balloons at passing ships? okay, we did that. Hiding kids playtoys that make goofy noises underneath the floor
boards of the box loft? okay, we did that. Reorganize all the time cards.. okay, when didn't we do that? Pranks were common.
The stuff I included here was some of the more less than common events.... things that made me (or us) go 'huh?'
The downstairs curtain fluffs... okay, MAYBE some natural bizarro event generated just the right puff of wind to cause the curtains to move in that
way that a slow moving human sized object passing through the curtains would generate... but not the upstairs ones. There was NO other activity
upstairs to generate the puffs of wind, only two curtains were affected (door to 11, then the door to 10) 11 and 10 are at right angles to each
other, so the puff in question was generated in holding 11 (a dead room, only the one door, no other way for air to flow in or out, and no activity in
the room) puffed through the curtain in that oh so special way, went ten feet down the hall, stopped, turned left, puffed Into holding 10 (another
dead room, no way for air to get in or out except through the one doorway) all while I stood another 20 feet down the hallway Watching this.... the
only conclusions I can come to are a)I'm crazy or b) I saw something weird. (keep in mind that this was Before Jamillia filled my head with arabic
The Namco moving around... again, of Course a human could have done that... I relate it to something more like parking your car... of course your car
Fits in the back yard and there's a way to actually drive the thing back there, but you never have put it back there in your entire life, no one in
your family nor any of your friends or neighbors has ever taken your car and stashed it in your back yard.... you park your car out front where you
Always do, you go into your house to get something, you come back three minutes later and discover that your car is gone... so you look around and
then discover the thing in your backyard.... weird. Same goes for the gloves... you expect to find them on the ground, not 12 feet up in the air
stuck behind some pipes... if they 'fell' out of your pocket and landed on the ceiling, that, in my book, goes into the 'weird' catagory.
If just One human had been caught stealing gloves or restacking totes, then All acts of weirdness would have been tagged to that one 'jolly joker'.
We couldn't explain away this stuff. Other stuff we could explain away, but not these events.
There had not been a murder on the island since the early 1930's. No deaths in the freezers or cold storage facility ever.
you seem to take 'house ghosts' rather lightly... I would imagine most folks would find such a thing to be Very Interesting... (hey, if it can do
that sort of stuff with gloves and forklifts, what can it do with a pair of dice, yes?)
If 'house ghost' is a normal, mundane explanation for you, then I guess your world is a LOT more exciting than mine *grins*
thanks for all of the feed back.
