This Explains SOOOO Much
"People who drink too much coffee could start seeing ghosts or hearing strange voices, UK research has suggested."
Oh dear. According to this BBC article, seven or more cups of coffee a day can make a person three times more likely to hallucinate. Scientists at Durham University studied a group of coffee-swilling student guinea pigs and found they were far more prone to paranormal experiences, including "seeing things that were not there, hearing voices, and sensing the presence of dead people."
More research needs to be done, of course. But I'm already considering cutting back on the caffeine.
