It's Ghost Day!
Boy, it's been a looong time since I featured a ghost. So today, I'm offering two for the price of one. (The price? FREE! So really, what could be better?)
The first ghost has chosen a rather unlikely location to haunt--a gym in Overland Park, Kansas. Motion-sensitive security cameras recently captured a white orb weaving around the barbells and stationary bikes. I must admit, at first I wasn't terribly impressed with this story. Then, at the end of this CNN video I learned something interesting. Apparently the gym's motion-sensitive cameras aren't all that sensitive after all. They can't be set off by just any old thing. Six hundred other businesses have the same system, and no one else has ever reported the cameras being accidentally tripped. So were the gym's activated by a ghostly presence? Watch the video and make up your own mind!
The second ghost is exactly where you'd expect to find one--a centuries-old English mansion. According to the BBC, a millionaire businessman recently fled a 52-room Nottinghamshire house after he and his family, "were haunted by mysterious figures and found unexplained blood stains on bedclothes. . . . He said the paranormal experiences began on the day they moved in, ranging from tapping on the wall and unexplained voices to ghostly presences taking the forms of their children."
Whoa. Read more here.
