    I actually gathered up a couple of "ghost hunting" gear and went out to the local cemetery. When I set up recordings and went on with asking questions and setting up the spirit box I got nothing. The spirit box said a couple words but its hard to understand what it's saying because it skips through radio stations and the spirits are suppose to talk through the white noise. Well I pretty much got nothing, but when I got home and listen to the recordings it was amazing. I got all these strange voices that sounded like an interfered Skype call. Others were voices out of the spirit box that we didn't even here till we listened to the recording. There was one that we actually asked the name and they said "Price". It was on a head stone 10 feet away from where we went. I found this other strange noise that I could have sworn I've heard before but couldn't put my finger on. It was the sound of a cow bell and then a low pitch whistle and it happened in a split second on the recording.

    PS I just googled spirit box. You paid $160 for this?

    Yikes. Now that's scary.

    But the only ghost that might come through that thing is the spirit of Charles Ponzi.

    Ok, well, VIncent Price aside, welcome to RJ.

    Hopefully as you get older you'll learn to use that cute noggin of yours to think a bit more critically about all the superstitious BS that is prattled about everywhere in the world around us.

    Example: *If* a "spirit" *could* affect radio waves, what would this tell us about the nature of "spirit"?

    HINT: Understand the fundamentals of science, the scientific method and have a grasp of the principals of at least classical physics *before* you spend money on a "research device". WIthout the ability to think critically you will remain one of the billions of gullible marks that constitute the alleged "human" race.

    Broseph saidI know a guy who thinks Sasquatches may be real. I lost a bit of respect for him after finding that out...


    I had a friend, otherwise quite bright, who believed in aliens and those crop circles. So I handled it simply by telling him this is not for discussion between us. You will never convince me, don't even try. I have other friends who are real into the Jesus stuff and we simply do not bring that to the table either.

    I don't disrespect them at all for their beliefs. At worst I look at it as everyone having their own eccentricities and so if it isn't something that harms them or others, I mostly leave it at that, outside of a hopefully well placed joke.

    Were he ever about to give all his earthly possessions to the international crop circle appreciation clique, I'd probably then have interfered.

    The only spirits I'm interested in are dark rum, white rum and occasionally spiced rum.

    I believe in it a couple of years ago me and my friend went out to this huge abandoned building. Most of the building is out of bounds because all the floors were taken out although we did manage to climb one floor up but that was it. We took torches and a camera because we were convinced we might find a ghost or something and was really disappointed when we found nothing.

    We got home and loaded the images onto the PC. We had took two pictures of this set of odd looking stones sorta in a circle and some were stacked at the back of the circle. The first pic was just the stones and the second one had smoke coming off the piled up stones even though the pics were taken in the same minute. Clearly there was something supernatural about that so I'm a proper believer now.

    I'll message them to you because some people in the forums can be quite horrible to people if they disagree on something.

    Ray Stantz: Everything was fine with our system until the power grid was shut off by dickless here.
    Walter Peck: They caused an explosion!
    Mayor: Is this true?
    Peter Venkman: Yes it's true. ... This man has no dick.
    Peck: Jeez!
    Mayor: Break it up! Hey, break this up! Break it up!
    Peck: All right, all right, all right!
    Venkman: Well, that's what I heard!
    Peter Venkman: Well, you can believe Mr. Pecker...
    Walter Peck: My name is "Peck."
    Venkman: Or you can accept the fact that this city is headed for a disaster of biblical proportions.
    Mayor: What do you mean, "biblical"?
    Ray Stantz: What he means is Old Testament, Mr. Mayor, real wrath-of-God type stuff!
    Venkman: Exactly.
    Stanz: Fire and brimstone coming down from the sky! Rivers and seas boiling!
    Spengler: Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes!
    Winston Zeddmore: The dead rising from the grave!
    Venkman: Human sacrifice! Dogs and cats, living together! Mass hysteria!
    Mayor: Enough, I get the point! And what if you're wrong?
    Venkman: If we're wrong, then nothing happens! We go to jail; peacefully, quietly. We'll enjoy it! But if we're right, and we can stop this thing... Lenny, you will have saved the lives of millions of registered voters.
    Walter Peck: I don't believe you're seriously considering listening to these men!
    Mayor: Get him outta here.
