A little anecdote for everyone...
Years ago, a few friends (Gareth, Sean & Matthew) and I used to use Ouija boards regularly (every other night) in a garage at the back of my friend's
(Matthew) house. Most of the time nothing happened, and on occasion some of the guys would be quite blatantly moving the glass and making jokes out of
it. Sometimes little things happened (light bulbs exploding, temperature drops, etc).
One day in particular, Sean, Matthew & I were sitting in Matthew's living room when we heard a loud bang coming from the kitchen. We all jumped up
and went into the kitchen to investigate. There we found Gareth looking a bit stupid - he'd been making a toastie in the cheese toastie machine and
had clamped down the power cable along with the bread & cheese! This of course caused the bang as the plug fused.
After laughing off his stupidity we heard a heavy thud back in the living room. We walked back in to find that a book had somehow dislodged itself
from the bookcase and was lying open on the carpet. To our amazement it was open on a very interesting page... There was a picture on the page of 3
young men jumping up off a sofa and a caption below reading - 'And they jumped up to investigate the noise.'
