    Found these newspaper cutting about the male hating ghost that existed in Ward 5 of the Royal Derwent Mental Hospital in my town.[​IMG] The Asylum was closed in 2000 and has since been demolished.

    Interesting. George Anderson told me it worked something like that except he gets visual clues as well. If you believe him about that. I think he's full of it but oddly believed him when he described it. Maybe has some real ability masked by the $$.

    No idea who the guy in the video is - but imagine Chris O'Brien asking him a question and how long and convoluted a process that is. Now imagine this guy answering him, explaining the obvious with flourish ..... slowly. People could actually die from all the air being sucked out of the room.

    Watch: Ghost Moves Motorcycle in India?



    An eerie piece of security camera footage from India appears to show a motorcycle moving on its own and some viewers suspect that it could be the work of a ghost. The video in question was posted to Twitter on Tuesday by film producer Amber Zaidi, who mused that the spooky scene was "captured on camera or else nobody would have believed it." Where, exactly, the incident occurred is unknown, but the timestamp on the footage suggests that it took place at around 1 AM this past December 30th.

    In the video, a motorcycle initially sits parked along the side of a deserted street before it suddenly starts slowly moving. The bike almost completely turns around in the road, but falls over with what appears some considerable force. Alas, the footage ends there without any indication of what became of the motorcycle after that nor how its owner reacted to later finding it knocked down in the road. Be that as it may, the video has quickly gone viral on social media in India with people offering all manner of theories for what they are seeing.

    While some social media users declared that the bike had been moved by some kind of spirit lurking in the street, more skeptical have put forward some pretty compelling prosaic explanations. One prevalent theory is that the bike had faulty wiring which allowed for it to start on its own and then it moved along the road because it had been left in gear when parked. Another interesting argument is the event was caused by the ground vibrating. And, of course, there are those who simply declared that the footage was a clever hoax.

    A ghost would have to build up an enormous amount of energy to do that. Even household ghosts need 24 hours to build up enough energy to move a book let alone a motorbike.

    A ghost or anybody else would have had to have put up the kickstand. At right around the 00:10 mark it sure looks like that's what happen. Weird.

    EDIT - you know what Harley Davidson calls their kickstands? You would think it would be manly and cool. No. When the Terminator swings off that hog he puts down the Jiffy stand.

    He should have waited 48 hours then. He dropped that bike half way through a turn ! Maybe he had an appointment.

    I tried to see if there was any weight added to the bike before it began moving, wondered if someone actually sat in it and did what it did and the person later cropped out of the video, but I did not notice any weight differences before movement...Nothing appeared to grab the handlebars either as far as I can tell...

    Since we cannot hear sounds, not even when the bike fell over, could it be the bike was left idling and vibration caused it to drop into the low gear?

    Vintage Christmas Gift Caused Terrifying Paranormal Activity for Mississippi Family

    Whitney Merritt, who lives with her family in the city of Brandon, stated that her mother received a vintage doll carriage from a friend of a friend’s and she decided to wrap it up as a Christmas gift for her granddaughter.

    At first, they heard banging sounds coming from the walls of their home as well as in the attic. The bangs were so loud that Whitney thought someone was knocking on her front door but when she opened it, nobody was there. She tried to come up with a logical explanation such as the house settling, but as the activity worsened, they couldn’t ignore it any longer. In fact, at one point, the noises in the attic were so loud that her husband Michael went up to investigate with a shotgun expecting to confront an intruder but nobody was up there. And that was just in the first week…

    The second week wasn’t any better as Whitney woke up in the middle of the night by a loud noise and in the morning she found two coffee mugs broken on her kitchen floor. The following night, she again heard a loud bang and found another broken coffee mug on the floor. After sweeping up the broken pieces and going back to bed, she heard what sounded like someone dropping dishes into the sink but when she checked, nothing was in the sink.

    The third week was the worst as the dreamcatcher and lamp in her daughter’s room fell to the floor on numerous occasions. Then the bathroom door slammed shut when nobody was near it. The following day, a toy car began playing music even though the switch was turned off. That same evening, Whitney woke her husband up for work and as she began sweeping the floor, she noticed him walking into the kitchen but when she repeatedly asked him the same question without an answer, she walked into the kitchen and he wasn’t in there. She went back to the bedroom to find him still sleeping. She’s completely convinced of what she saw as she stated, “I saw him.” “I saw— I swear on my kids and I’m not crazy. Please don’t think I’m crazy. Cause repeating this to somebody, I know it sounds weird. Because I’ve never believed in any of that ever in my life. I’m not— But I saw a person walk past the door into the kitchen.”

    The next day was their breaking point as Whitney went to get groceries with her daughter while her four-year-old was at the grandparents’ house and the seven-year-old was at school. She received a call from her husband who asked if one of their children was home and she replied that he was in school. Michael explained how he heard the front door as well as their son’s door closing. After hearing knocks on the wall, Michael called his son’s name but received no answer. He noticed that the light in his son’s bedroom was on but when he opened the door, nobody was in the room, but the Xbox was turned on and a water bottle was “actively” dripping onto the floor.

    Whitney and Michael realized that the unexplained activity started happening after they received the doll carriage so they put it in the garage and they haven’t had any paranormal occurrences since. Then they advertised it for sale for $65 on Facebook Marketplace with the caption stating that it’s “definitely haunted”.

    As for the haunted doll carriage, Whitney found out from her mother that the previous owner’s husband had passed away in a motorcycle accident so perhaps that’s who she saw entering her kitchen.

    In a text message, Michael wrote, “We both strongly believe there is a spirit attached to that doll buggy.” “With what was going on, there’s no other explanation. It all started with all the knocking and banging on the walls out of nowhere and I knew.”

    There are artifacts in the video right around the 00:10 mark. It could have been a kick stand or just a glitch. All I can say is, it looks really interesting. And no matter what the cause I would be very pissed if I returned to find the Pig Iron on its side.

    Irishwoman catches spooky snap of 'trapped' ghost outside 'dungeon' church in Co Wexford

    Karen Furlong, 44, from New Ross, explained that she caught the spooky snap by chance at St Mary's Church in the town over the weekend. She told the Irish Daily Mirror: "I was sitting at home Saturday night and I got up to go into the kitchen and noticed it was snowing.

    "I ran out to the front and brought my phone with me, because the church is just across the road from my house. "I'm obsessed with the church, I always post pictures on Twitter and Instagram. They change the colour of a beautiful light on it, people always want to see what colour it's going to be tonight.

    "My son ran out behind me, and there was nobody on the street, it was just empty. "So anyway I took a few pictures, went in, sat down and posted a few on Twitter."

    "And I was just sitting up in bed when I looked at it, and I went: 'Hang on a second'. "I zoomed in and said: 'Oh my god, I think that's a ghost, a spirit!', and it just took off from there."

    Karen is "100% certain" it is a spirit or a ghost, and there are some local theories as to who the mystery figure could be - including rumours of "dungeons" in the church itself.

    The mystery figure appears in the wall at the bottom of the image:

    Right before it falls and hits the ground, there is weight applied to the front end.

    Ghost Photographed at Centuries-Old Cemetery in New Hampshire?

    A New Hampshire man suspects that a photograph taken during a late-night visit to a cemetery just might show a ghost lingering near a gravestone. Tyler Karanasios reportedly took the picture during a visit to the Pine Hill Cemetery in the community of Hollis last summer and subsequently shared it on a local Facebook group a few weeks ago. Posting the image as well as some comparative shots from the site, he explained that he and a friend had visited the 250-year-old burial grounds and "decided to take some flash photos to keep for memory." When they later looked over the images, they were stunned to see "what appears to be some sort of shadowy ghostly figure."

    Among the sizeable membership of the Facebook group, response to the spooky image was decidedly mixed as some users suspected that the anomaly in the image was some kind of spirit and more skeptical observers argued that the oddity was the result of prosaic elements such as the flash from the camera reflecting off of a tombstone or perhaps a shadow. For his part, Karanasios leans towards the ghostly explanation, musing that "I see a woman in a long cloak or dress of some sort."
