that was moderately interesting, but I fail to see the practical use in doing that experiment into the sky. Your link does seem to hold some credability for an explanation, but again, whats the point?
Episode 312: Korn's Groovy Pirate Ghost Mystery
October 27, 1999
It's Halloween in South Park again, and all is not well. Father Maxi denounces the holiday as evil, and expresses his disgust in inviting the band Korn to perform, which could only compound the evil that day. Korn and the rest of South Park start seeing pirate ghosts (or are they ghost pirates?) around the pier, making the concert a distinct impossibility. With the help of their space chicken friend, Niblet, Korn foils the ghosts, and reveals that Father Maxi was actually creating the illusion of translucent pirates. This is demonstrated by shining a flashlight through cotton swabs, and making spooky sounds with a cup of Swiss cheese.
Kenny's Cause of Death:
While in his ED-209 costume, his legs were bound by towlines from tiny spaceships, then he was brought to the ground and fatally fired upon.
JONATHAN: ...You all perceived us to be mean, evil people, but really we're just normal guys. And we all perceived pirate ghosts to be real, when actually, they were just cotton swabs. So I guess the lesson is: it's easy to perceive something some way, and then be wrong. So we all need to learn to be a little less perceptive.
Jonathan: I think I've got this groovy mystery solved!
[Outside. The mystery has apparently been explained. The priest is now under arrest]
Chef: Well, I must say I still don't get this at all.
Jonathan: It's simple. Priest Maxi didn't want there to be a Halloween, so he decided to scare everyone away from the docks.
David: Yeah. And then he used this flashlight and some cotton swabs to create the ghosts. [shows the flashlight and swabs, then shines the light through the swabs. The pirate ghosts appear in the distance]
Fieldy: [with some cheese and a cup] Then all he needed was some sound effects created by this cup and a piece of cheese. [holds them to his mouth and sounds] Aaaaraargh!
Jonathan: And all he had to do then was create a ghost ship, by using some candles, a mirror, and two squirrels. [genuflects to place the candle between the mirror and the squirrels. A pirate ship appears on the lake]
Chef: Father, why did you go to all this trouble?
Fr. Maxi: Because Halloween is an abomination of God. I would do anything to stop this wretched, unholy holiday!
Chef: Including killing people and wreaking havoc all over South Park?
Brunet: Don't you see that by trying to stop Halloween you've scared the hell out of everybody?
Fr. Maxi: No.
Barbrady: Okay buddy, you can explain downtown! [takes the priest away]
very interesting, but again, what would be the point? what were they intercepting? an EMP bomb?
