Seeing Ghosts?


Here's the photo allegedly showing the ghost of Toys R Us, the tale of whom we cover in "Ghost of a Chance". Legend has it that the crew of "That's Incredible" shot several rolls with both infrared and regular high-speed cameras. The ghost is said to be the figure leaning in the background of this infrared image, and is not present in the high-speed version of the image. None of the sites I visited featuring this photo supply the non-infrared version. Go figure.

I did have a ghostly experience recently, although I didn't see anything. I'd gone into this old church, which oddly enough was called The Holy Ghost Church. We'd gone in to see the priest and he meets us in the main building and invites us into his home so we start to follow him out. As he goes, he turns out all of the lights and when he does I feel a cold hand touching my shoulder... but when I look around there's no one behind me.

Of course I figured out rather quickly that what had happened was that I'd gone into this very old building, and it being a church as well my expectations of having some sort of supernatural experience had been raised rather high; so unconsciously I'd made it happen. So I thought no more of it.

Apparently the time when you're most receptive to seeing ghosts is when you're seven years old. I don't know they figured that out... did they just ask a bunch of seven year olds? Because I think if you ask a bunch of seven year olds if they'd seen Superman flying around a high percentage of them would insist that they had.

Indeed I did see many ghosts when I was seven; as well as flying saucers, witches, big foot and quite a few times I'm sure there was a dinosaur or robot skulking around the dustbins.

Hey, why the reruns?

We had a few reruns as we were all away for the holidays. Get ready for all new shows in 2009!

About ghosts... I'm skeptic but most people I know believe them. And even people who claim to be skeptic believe in evil eye.
