    It's Halloween Eve so that means.....

    give us your best ghost story. I haven't ever personally experienced an encounter with a ghost or spirit but like hearing about them from others that have. Below is a great website with tons of ghosts stories people have written in. It's a great way to waste an evening and scare yourself to death.

    Let me recommend Ghost Hunters on SciFi if you are at all interested in ghosts. I consider myself a skeptic, but this is a great series and keeps you entertained. I've heard many stories, but I hate when people make them up and you can tell, but they still show up on "documentaries." Bobby Mackey's (http://www.bobbymackey.com/hellsgate.html) in our own back yard is supposed to be great example of paranormal activity, but anywhere that has a psychic named Echo investigate it loses some credibility. I prefer scientific evidence rather than someone telling me what they supposedly see.

    Here's some interesting links:
    COPS
    The Ghosts Of Ohio

    I'll add more when I have more time.

    The orange glow you see is the city of Detroit, once again on fire.

    Ahh...Detroit.

    A wonderful place to be from.

    I know Bobby, and while he himself was a strong skeptic at first, there have definitely been some very strange things that happened there. They filmed a special for the Discovery Channel there not all that long ago, I believe.

    Ghosts are about as real as the impact of grit on the game of baseball.

    Yeah, I saw that. It's interesting, I just wish a true scientific investigation would be performed instead of the whole psychic investigation thing. I don't doubt things have happened. I'd love to see Ghost Hunters do an investigation.

    I always wondered a few things abour ghosts. Who decides what clothes they wear when they appear? Do they have a wardrobe?

    Someone said ghosts wear what they were wearing when they died as people. What if I died wearing parachute pants? That wouldn't be very scary, and I'd be stuck in clothes that don't age very well, fashion wise.

    Or what if I died in the raw?

    And is being a ghost something you apply for, or do you get chosen?

    Also- I can't imagine a worse existence. You have to stay up all night, for eternity, rattling things around trying to scare people when most just attribute your hard work to "the house settling."
