pretend like it was Jack the Ripper coming to get them and get all bugged eyed, and take their flashlights to chase the sound. So, seriously, have any
of them ever come close to finding a ghost?
As for the ghost who is the subject of this thread, Houdini can be seen on internet videocam rolling over in his grave.
I've wasted more time than I'd like to admit watching ghost hunting shows. I'm not sure what I'm expecting to see. I justify watching dumb shows
by being on the treadmill at the same time.
Of course, it makes the EVPs impossible to hear, but I can rarely hear them even without the sounds
of a treadmill covering them up.
Anyway, to give you some perspective, the Ghost Hunters were holding this up as some of the best evidence they have ever gotten. Most shows, it's
a lot of "did you hear that?" and "did you see that?" to which my answer is "no" and "no". I swear, some alleged EVPs are stomach
gurgles. Haha! But from time to time there is something compelling... but the problem is, when there is something compelling you don't know if it is
"real" because this is, afterall, a television show. They may have a quota of ghost "sightings" in their contracts for all I know.
I love the new show Ghost Mine, I'll admit that. Most ghost hunting shows aren't great. My husband likes to play a drinking game when I have him
watch "ghost adventures", which is pretty hilarious. He drink when they say "dude", "bro", and takes a double drink every time Zak misuses
the term "debunk". There are a couple of other rules, I don't remember. Ghost Hunters is really my least favorite of the ghost hunting shows.
And like 99.9% of television, it is not a great use of my time.
I will keep watching, though, waiting for that moment that will likely never come
- the moment when somebody somewhere captures something definitive.
