    First one with the opening door - definitely weird.

    Scanned through the rest and pretty sure that same verdammit video with the guy and his stupid cat make their way into this. Like a bad penny it keeps turning up.

    End result: one turd in the punchbowl is enough for me. I'd like to know how they faked the door thing.

    lol, I know you believe it's a cat and have even gone so far as to show stills of it, but I don't think it is. I think it just coincidentally looked like that as it moved. Kinda like pareidolia. :D

    Stone-Throwing Poltergeist Plagues Family in Bhutan

    [​IMG]

    By Tim Binnall


    A family in Bhutan say that their lives have been torn asunder thanks to a mysterious spirit that keeps pelting the roof of their home with stones. The strange haunting reportedly began last month when Bhagilal Ghalley and his grandson Sunil were staying in a small hut where they were watching over cattle. In the middle of the night, they noticed that rocks began raining down upon the roof and the commotion continued until morning.

    The following day, Sunil and his father Sabir returned to the hut and the roof was once again inexplicably pelted with stones. They subsequently fled the scene, but, as they departed, they were also struck by the puzzling flying rocks. "Something was chasing us," Sabir recalled, "it followed us all the way." Over the course of the next few days, the proverbial rainfall of rocks continued night after night wherever the family was staying until they could no longer stand the situation and enlisted a shaman to help them.

    The sorcerer in question, Sher Bahadur, revealed that he took up the case when he was given one of the rocks at the center of the haunting and found it to be particularly strange. "This stone sparked and became like a magnet when I put it on a bronze plate for a ritual," he explained. Looking into the matter more closely, Bahadur somehow determined that the reason for the falling rocks was a distant relative of the Ghalleys was once a great shaman and that, "when he died, his family had not conducted the death rites properly. That is why he is haunting his family."

    However, another detail of the story suggests that the cause of the haunting may be closer to home. That's because the stone-throwing seems to be centered around 15-year-old Sunil and that the falling rocks only occur when he is present, which is eerily similar to other famous poltergeist cases. Remarkably, the family recounted one incident in which the teenager was riding in a car with the windows closed, yet the passengers wound up being pelted by the mysterious stones during the trip.

    'Ghost' seen in window of Edinburgh landmark causes stir on internet

    Eyebrows have been raised at Lauriston Castle after a man shared a photo of a mysterious figure standing in one of the windows - when the building was believed to be empty.

    Drew McAdam arrived at the 16th century attraction, in Davidson's Mains, on Saturday, prior to a show he was hosting for Magicfest.

    Is it a ghost at the window? Picture: Drew McAdam

    While wandering the historical grounds, the magician took some photographs of the estate.

    It was not until later, when Drew saw the images he had taken enlarged on his computer, that he noticed something in one of the photographs did not add up.

    “On bringing them up on my computer, I was going to edit them a bit, but noticed the strangest thing - figure at one of the windows, who I swear was not there when I arrived.," he said.

    "I have not edited this photo in any way. It is exactly as it came on the camera,” he added on a post to Facebook.

    The 64-year-old mentalist and mind-reader shared a close-up of the photograph, which shows a figure standing in one of the windows dressed in period dress.

    “Now, say what you want, but there is a figure at that window, and they are not wearing modern clothing.

    “Additionally, I had taken another couple of photos in quick succession – which you can see here, and the figure appears to have moved,” he said.

    Drew, from West Lothian, insists that the photos were taken when the castle was ‘bolted and shuttered’ with nobody inside, shortly before the custodian arrived to open it.

    Speaking to the Evening News, he said: “I put the photos up on the computer and thought ‘what the hell’s that?’

    “To me, it doesn’t look like a ghost, it looks like a real person. I know the house really well, some people said it was a mannequin or something but there’s no mannequins in that place, it’s a museum,” he added.

    Margaret Findlay, learning and programmes manager with Museums and Galleries Edinburgh, said: “We are all extremely privileged to work in a venue like Lauriston Castle, a building rich in history spanning over 500 years.

    "Of course the building has stories to tell. The house has had various notable owners over the centuries, and some of these characters are quite colourful and even notorious."

    Margaret said paranormal activity was not new at Lauriston: “Our staff at Lauriston Castle have reported hearing footsteps when no one is present, and the sound of silk skirts rustling.

    “Sometimes a shadowy figure is reported, disappearing through a wall. Visitors to the gardens have reported seeing a shadowy figure disappear. The ghost may be Sophia, wife of Andrew, Lord Rutherford, who passed after writing her husband a letter to be delivered only after her death.”

    Drew’s original post has been shared almost 500 times, attracting a mix of responses with many shocked by the images.

    “That is really spooky...I will have nightmares now,” one social user posted.

    Another said: “A lot of reports of ghostly activity in Lauriston Castle over the years, it makes for interesting reading.”

    Some, however, were more sceptical of Drew’s sighting, stating: “It’s the clearest (ghost) picture I've seen. But perhaps it's a cardboard cut out to gauge interest?”

    That does look too clear to be a ghost. Could have been staged to drum-up more visitors to the museum. They should found out when Sophia was alive and maybe there's images of her. The photographer has an interesting profession.

    It does look like a real person, or she has a very powerful spirit to be able to do so.

    I have always preferred those ghost encounters where they appear as normal people who just aren't there anymore a second later


    .... and if I was hosting a MagicFest there you bet your bippy I'd have someone just like that peeking out of the occasional window.

    Ghost face in the rear view mirror

    [​IMG]

    Seen in this photo, is a face in the driver’s side mirror. It was taken during the daylight hours. A named named Guillermo Sosa wanted to sell his white convertible car, so he bought an ad online to sell it. To his surprise, he discovered a ghost face looking back at him in the mirror. He was completely freaked out by it. He said that nobody else was around but him when he took the photo and nobody was inside the car.

    The Cooper family photo

    [​IMG]

    This photograph, has since become quite popular but it is so unusual, it hangs out among the rest. The Cooper family snapped a photograph back in the 1950’s and were completely shocked to see at the dinner table a horrifying upside down hanging body with them on that night. Was this someone who previously lived here? Or, was this perhaps a tortured soul trying to make contact with the living? Quite certainly, this is one ghostly standout.

    I got kinda scared watching the one about the door.



    A lot of people (ghost hunters) use that ball method but, that's the first time I saw it actually move by itself.

    These old eyes of mine could not tell where it was coming out of, was it a garage? Then it looked to me that it went next door to the neighbors, is that correct?

    You wouldn't happen to know how much a cloaking suit would cost, would you?

    Yeah, it does seem rather strange for it to be holding a flashlight and even stranger for it to take the long way to where it was going when it could have just cut across if it was a ghost? Then again, ghosts do seem to be creatures of habit.
