Someone needs to explain the concept of confirmation bias to 'paranormal investigators'. Slowly. With visual aids.

I had no idea what that headline meant. Then I read the article. What a couple of assholes. I hope the landlord wins his countersuit with attorneys fees.

Yeah, it sounds like they have classic buyer's remorse.

"We decided not to live here."
"Ok, well, I'm sorry, as our contract states, the deposit is non-refundable."
"Well, you have to give it back to us. Because....our house is haunted...yeah...haunted"

You are so very outraged because this has never happened before. Fark never links to Daily Fail and Daily Fail never lifts stories from elsewhere. This is the first time ever!!!

Since four headlines ago.

This claim is bullshiat. There's no way any supernatural being tore the bed covers off that woman. If anything it would've pulled the sheets up over her face, or put a bag over her head.

Just because you're dead doesn't mean you lose all sense of Ugly.

Once you're dead...you're dead. You don't have a body or a brain. So how the f*ck are you supposed to haunt anyone? I never got that even when I was a child. Humans make sound by passing air through the voice box creating sound waves and someone else hears those waves, the brain interprets the sounds as language or sound, whala. Communication. Eyes intercept photons at the back of the eye focusing them on the rods and cones, which in turn take that energy, turn it into electrical impulses, your brain builds a picture you see. You hear, by interpreting the modulated sound waves..in your brain. You move your muscles...never mind you get the picture if you're smarter than a 6 year old. Believing in ghosts is the ultimate childish neoteny, and places us at the bottom of the human evolution.
Humans are sophisticated schizophrenic tool using apes.

Science fiction author Clifford Simak once theorized that ghostliness is an evolving survival mechanism.

Here's me as judge.

Judge: Okay, so, I am going to order psychiatric evaluations for any person who utters total babble that could only be the result of schizophrenia or the like, and anyone turning up positive gets involuntarily commited. Okay, tenants, tell me what happened.
 
2012-04-15 10:49:48 AM
I really wish I could be in this courtroom to hear what the judge has to say.

Sadly, the percentage of people who believe in this childish nonsense is rapidly increasing.

Well said.

Howerver... How can you be so well-thought-out and intelligent about everything else in this post, but not know how to spell voilà?

"Whala" isn't even close to being the word you were looking for. It is a word, but it means "to lash or thrash with stripes" and I really don't think you meant that.

Unless you did, in which case: Carry on.

The family has a teenage daughter? How old? Many so-called poltergeist hauntings are really the shenanigans of girls getting their period and going through puberty. They can't handle what's happening to them so they turn their angst outwards, into doing stuff like throwing pebbles at other family members when they're not looking, and smearing turds on the bathroom mirror.

Given the psychological predisposition towards trusting girls, people believe the precious snowflakes couldn't possibly be responsible.

If someone's pronouncing it "whala", they're saying it wrong.

As with many things, there are multiple possibilities and theories out there as to what ghosts may be. I'd like to believe there is something weird and spooky going on. It makes life interesting. I am going to at first be highly skeptical while trying to keep an open mind. I believe most paranormal activity can be explained, however.

I will go ahead and admit that while I do know how to spell such words correctly occasionally while I am typing I will accidentally put in the phonetic spelling because in my mind I am "hearing" it as one thing and my mind's eye is "seeing" it in New Times Roman(usually) and my hands sometimes get the wrong message between the two.

according to the landlord's attorney: 'I think she is in over her head and she can't afford the rent. She needed to show her ex, the father of her kids, that she has a good place for them to live.'

much more likely than ghosts.

As a demon, I am getting a kick out of this post.

Charges haven't been filed against me since 1809. Since then most families just blame the landlords, and in some cases, realtors can be legally liable for our demonic activities. psssh, suckers....
