    Do any of you believe in ghosts? There was a show called ghost hunters on the sci fi channel that may have uncovered a few sightings that make you think about things a little more. Chase and I were discussing this one tonight and I thought I would get some opinions from some of you all on what you think. Here's what they have to say:

    They tried to reproduce what you see in the video and couldn't even come close to it looking the same.

    WARNING!! This video is real and if you are easily scared, you shouldn't click this link!

    Large file - not for dial up

    You can see more of this stuff on the TAPS website.

    I've seen this before, but a much smaller version.

    Looking at this bigger version i honestly think that its just the way the dust is blowing towards the lens in a strange formation. Still wouldnt like to spend the night in that place tho.

    There was a programme of british television a few months ago where a couple of people stayed in Alcatraz (sp) looking for ghosts, they done a load of sound recordings and when they reduced the white noise and played them back later you could clearly hear voices threatening to kill the presenters and stuff :pale:

    spooky, dont know how much of this is set up to boost the shows ratings or something

    It's called EVP recordings. Here is a link:

    The movie 'White Noise' was about that. Interesting...

    I think it may be someone...I would just say someone walking to the camera, then running away? perhaps cause they shouldnt be there? perhaps they stole something..
    Thing that worries me is he/she doesnt obviously turn round, they are just suddenly facing the other way..

    A screenie from that lightend up in photoshop may yeild some good results...

    If you look at the dress/gown hanging up you'll see that when the "ghost" retreats the garment is disturbed by moving air probably caused by a physical object displacing the air around it! Since ghosts aren't supposed to have any physical matter I really doubt it is a ghost! Maybe something on a trollry or suspended from the ceiling and a partial reflection off a piece of glass so that in reality the event happened behind the camera and all we are seing is a faint reflection!

    Not that I don't beleive in ghost mind! I swear the workshop I spent my apprenticeship in was haunted by the boss' former partner! It happened so often it became more annoying than scary. we'd catch something at the other end of the workshop in the periphary of an eye but when you tried to focus on it or turn to see it was gone! I spent 2 or 3 minutes one evening keeping it/him in the corner of my eye trying to make out exactly what it was I could see!

    Ghosts are not at all what people think.
    Personally I don't believe in them - even though I have actually seen one. I think I understand what was going on...
