If there's one sucker born every minute, well then it follows that approximately one sucker dies every minute, too.

That's exactly like my invention, and mine was first.

I think a ceased and deceased letter is order.

I think you should meet the Maker first, and establish your Mark.

Aren't his devices basically just EMF detectors that you can get at Home Depot for 20 bucks?

I wish I could come up with a way to scam stupid people. I wonder how much he's made?

some people watch jersey shore and have no shame about it. Me, I watch Ghost Adventures and have no shame about it. I look forward to it every friday night, I eat that shiat up. Its right up there with pro wrestling for my ridiculous entertainment quotient I need every week.

I would so have sex with the girl from Jersey Shore. No, not that one, the orange colored one. No, not that orange colored one, the other one.

No, it's a "Spirit Box", which is a radio stuck on "scan".

Why did I click that link? That was a commercial masquerading as an article.

Surely an issue this grave deserves a better epitaph. Coffin.

No, he didn't invent a device to communicate with his dead daughter. He added a new label to chinese teslameters, added two zeros at the end of the price, and resold them,

Galka donates one-third of the profits to local bereavement groups.

ok

2012-04-25 11:43:16 PM  
I'd usually scoff at the people who might buy this kind of crap, but in this case, I have a hard time feeling this way. Anyone who's ever lost someone very close can probably understand the desperate feeling to communicate with the dead, even if it's only a brief moment. I feel sympathy, because I've been there myself.

On the other hand, the guy selling it should have his head bashed in. Taking advantage of the bereaved is just about as low as one could go.

No, "tesla" is also the unit for measuring magnetic flux density.

That is some funny shiat. I love it when Zach runs into stuff in the dark, 'Did someone just scratch me!!' The scariest thing about that show is some people actually believe their theatrics. And the slogan, 'with no big camera crews following us around' -except the other two dudes with cameras.

I'm watching one of those paranormal investigator shows right now. The current episode is about a guy who moved to a new house, and then a week later woke up in the middle of the night with his hair smoking and falling out. His Weeners was not to consult a physician, but to instead call the "Oklahoma Paranormal Society" who promptly came and investigated his home with thermometers, EMF meters, digital cameras and recorders.

During the investigation, one of the team members was "spiritually attacked" by a "demonic entity" and the homeowner's chihuaha had a seizure and died.

Chihuahas are always having seizures. It's a way of life for them. BFD.

Not a lawyer, but I'm pretty sure there's some sort of federal law being broken here. Think about it, if it was legal to do this, then con artists would have built a cottage industry out of it by now. He's just not that slick.

This, especially when it happens suddenly and there is no chance for a goodbye. Grief can make you think very illogically.

Look up Frank's Box on Youtube. Even better look up Radio Shack radio ghost box and you'll see that with $20.00 and an hour you can have the same pseudo-experience. Alternately, you can just turn the tuning knob on your radio back and forth fast and hear the broken speech too lol. I used to be amazed by Frank's box and the like, but they all appear to be coincidental hoaxes that rely on the delay and the human brain into tricking us into thinking we are hearing conversation.

Sorrow makes us all children again - destroys all differences of intellect. The wisest know nothing. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure. ~Author Unknown

How very softly
you tiptoed into my world.
Almost silently;
Only a moment you stayed.
But what an imprint
Your footprints have left
On our hearts.
--Dorothy Ferguson

"To Remember Is Painful
To Forget Is Impossible."
~Maureen Connelly

"The deep pain that is felt at the death of every friendly soul arises from the feeling that there is in every individual something which is inexpressible, peculiar to him alone, and is, therefore, absolutely and irretrievably lost."
~Arthur Schopenhauer

Sorry for the copy-pasta. Just a couple of quotes I keep handy. Hate to bring them out.. They invoke great sadness.

Way to profit off of the death of your own child.
