Bit different around here; its OK to have the elephant unattended providing the correct fee has been paid on the meter and as far as lap dances go, the dancer must only be six inches away. For some that is not a problem but for others....

Sure - but my default solution isn't to attribute to ghoulies, ghosties and paranormal phenomena, it's to find out the physical, temporal cause.

I'm a pilot - I've got ten thousand hours of flight time....I've seen UFO's. That is, flying objects I couldn't identify. I don't claim that they're from the far end of the galaxy.....just that I couldn't identify them.

Shakespeare was right: There are more things in heaven and on earth than are explained by my philosophy (which then meant science)....it just means science isn't done.

LOL I think the solution is to have another beer and see if the apparition stays.

Yeah, but now we know it was just a glitch in the matrix...

Have some fun today... search eBay for "Ghost detectors". Good Gawd, there must be TEN born every minute!

I see, hear and smell so many weird things while on night watch that I hardly pay any attention any more. I believe there are more things out there than can be explained but I'm to un interesting for most to bother. When I'm low on sleep I don't trust my senses. Dave

we had something in glens falls, ny back inda day that scared the cat..consistek=ntly--and for us, in a draft free place, we felt cold air passing--was spozedly the ghostie opf a female preteen who died there in the 50s.

a good friend of mine ate gun on board his boat in front if his fiancee--i wanted to buy the boat--the guy who was selling it to him decided that the mans ghostie would be a bad thing --and crushed the boat---damn--was a formosa 51. fully loaded for cruising. ready to go . woulda been fun to see if he stayed in the boat....i could use relief at the helm when single handing.........

I will "clean" your boat from any ghosts for a fee. That way I could make money to buy a boat. I could be the "perfect" candidate as I am atheist.

Sorry, but I don't think you could believe in your work

Because I do not believe in ghosts, it would make me the perfect candidate.

I could not compete with TV "ghost Hunters" experience, but I will work cheaper. I got two major tools: laser pointer and 500,000V "zapper".

I am "non believer" so the cross would not work. The silver bullet my put hole in the hull, and I my stab my self (or the boat owner) with the stake.
As a young boy, I went many times to a cemeterys and "haunted houses", but never "had luck" to encounter any ghosts. Why laser pointer? It is not natural light and will show any magnetic anomaly (change in air density). The high voltage "zapper" will energize the anomaly. Under some circumstance, heat energy residue from current or previous owner can manifest him self as
"ghost". High voltage can cancel the heat residue. No more "ghosts".
Do it your self kit: laser pointer from wall-mart for $3 and zapper for $45.
If you are not willing to do it your self (scare) then I will do it for reasonable fee.
