I'll bet is not a ghost.
2003-04-15 12:21:35 AM  
I'll bet it's just an excuse the people on the floor made up when they threw up everywhere.
2003-04-15 12:31:31 AM  
"He slimed me!" comes to mind...

It sounds like the Farelly Brothers do Scooby Doo

Watch out Steve! I'm gonna heave!

Okay Jack, enjoy your yak.

Amazing that college kids can convince the paper of this "news". I'll bet Pritchard has about 500 "ghosts" by now, and they do more than barf (I prefer the term "TechniColor Yawn" myself).
2003-04-15 11:11:49 AM  
That was the plan? Get her?
2003-04-15 11:12:26 AM  
Hey, that same ghost haunted my frat house when I was in college! What are the odds?
2003-04-15 11:12:47 AM  
Ectoplasm looks gross coming back up.

Get a stool sample, Venkman

The phantom puker?

Indiana State. That explains it.

Freshman year of college we had one of those in the ladies room...I still don't know how they managed to puke on all sides of the stall and even hit the back wall 5 ft. ABOVE the toilet. I've heard of projectile vomiting, but this was unbelievable. I'm pretty sure it wasn't all only puke too...which horrifies me.
2003-04-15 11:18:23 AM  
heh.. surprised no one beat me.

I'm kinda grossed out, thanks.
2003-04-15 11:29:26 AM  
We had a ghost like that in college. But he was called Flatulent Fred
2003-04-15 11:32:51 AM  
Had a ghost in an old apartment one time, was called Nosepicking Ned. Man the rocks he would leave on the walls... ewww.
2003-04-15 11:36:15 AM  
ghosts don;t puke. angels do sometimes, and aliens do constantly, but ghosts never puke. everyone knows that.
2003-04-15 11:36:39 AM  
I'm going to go round blaming a ghost for all my unpleasant bodily functions. No, it was a ghost that made that B.O. smell. No, it was a ghost that did that dump in the middle of the floor etc. etc.

Pissonyou:- Anally expelling satirical magazines?

Man, I'm getting tired of using that phrase.
2003-04-15 12:04:48 PM  
Pissonyou: There was a madshiatter in my dorm too.
Must have been like Santa Claus, delivering presents all around the world in a single night.
2003-04-15 12:04:53 PM  
That article made me think of this one

Folklore professor? Damn, they'll give anyone a job...

Hmmm...too much jungle juice for ol' Barb eh?
2003-04-15 01:15:24 PM  
We had a "ghost" that would leave a condom in our dorm's hallway at least once a weekend :) But then again, we had some dirty whores living in our dorm....
2003-04-15 01:17:25 PM  
Thanks, been wondering what happened to my winter formal date from 38 years ago.
2003-04-15 01:25:52 PM  
Barfing Barb? Just call her Ralph.
2003-04-15 01:44:11 PM  
Oh the joys of college!

I remember running for the toilet just to have the seat cover hit me in the head...must have been the vodka shots.
2003-04-15 01:54:06 PM  
"Booooooooooo *ralph* booooooooooooooooo..."
2003-04-15 01:58:52 PM  
This isn't a barf pic. but it's me last Friday on my 23rd birthday right after we were tossed out of Ruby Skye in SF.

Best. Birthday. Ever.

Not as scary as the Pooping Poltergiest though.
2003-04-15 02:04:02 PM  
So the instances of overdrinking and partying are down in this particular dorm where the "ghost" of someone who partied and then puked herself to death still haunts, eh?

$50 says it's a complete scam to keep kids from drinking. I wonder when the "stealing ghost" will finally appear. Or the "cheated on test and then died of bad concience".

My guess is that the "ghost" in my dorm's ladies room ate vast quantities of those WOW! potato chips, then washed them down with copious amounts of alcohol (taking special care to mix beer AND hard liquor)...then wandered into our bathroom. I had nightmares for weeks, I swear. I'm still puzzled about how the mess got 5ft. about the toilet on the back wall. There are some questions you don't ever want answered, though

*looking at Ivana_Stolichnaya homepage*

Heh.. Chico..
Looks like good times at Chico State. The pictures are what everyone associates with the town.

I grew up there, but don't really like the place now. I go back once a summer and end up missing Seattle. The Mongolian grills there have no spice.
2003-04-15 02:42:56 PM  
I feel for that guy in Minky's post. There is a picture with me hugging a plastic trashbin out there somewhere. Pictures like that just ain't right.

The funny thing is, I wasn't going to drink that night.

Only a few weeks left 'till I get that diploma and get the fark out of Terre Haute! :D

The "Barfing Barb" story is more of an urban legend than anything else, but the students still get a good laugh out of it. What's even funnier is that every year, there's SOME stupid farker who gets all freaked out and tells EVERYONE they heard/saw Barb last night. (No, I'm not one of them. I live off campus.)

This legend is pretty well-known here in Indiana, too. I've had incoming students from as far away as Evansville ask me about it. It was also part of an Urban Legends discussion in my American Folklore class.

Guess what ISU's basketball team is called?

cscx there is nothing wrong with indiana state

hey all i will vouch 100% with this story i go to indiana state. last year i was staying over in a friends room in burford hall. i knew about the "ghost" from my folklore class, well anyway, it was about 2:00a.m. and i heard this amazingly loud puking coming from down the hall. me and my friend got up to check it out. he heard it all the time, so it was no big deal to him...but i didnt believe him. we walked down the hall and it got louder the closer we got to the bathroom. when i went in, there was no one anywhere. but you could tell the sounds were coming from in there. this story is 100% true

I'm with you Cosmicgirl - I'm packing up and moving out the second I finish my last final. Then I'm done with Terre Haute forever.

I've never heard/seen Barb, but I too live off campus.
2003-04-15 05:31:08 PM  
AW- What's your major?
2003-04-15 07:27:32 PM  
I went there, and heard the story about a million times. Theres also another story where a girl jumped out of the 12th floor window in Cromwell Hall, and then all of a sudden there is a cross that appeared directly below the window. They say they have tried to wash it off, but it keeps coming back. I personally do not remember if the cross is there nor do I even remember looking for it. Been farked up wayyy to many times since that point. But anyway, I think its a crap story, but who knows. Never heard the ghost myself, but girls have told me about it...
2003-04-15 08:35:27 PM  
too bad that story was skeefed from part of one from the statesman... anyway, i've seen my fair share of people puking at parties (i'm in a fraternity), and you'd be surprised how far that stuff can go... just make sure you cut that one blonde chick off at 6 beers else she gets REAL crazy...

My major is psychology, Cosmic. Yours?
