I dunno.  The Brady home had that ghost in the attic.

Hi, Ricky! Good headline.

How's Karl and Steve? I was just talking about you guys in another thread.

I'm not sure why, but I find rich aristocrats rather amusing.  If they're British.  Must be a result of old movies.

My 1100 sqft ranch is a house. A 10 sqft castle with 8' thick walls is not a house.

10K sqft dammit!

Chillingham Castle?? Pfft! Scarington Manor is far more haunted.

Haunted by the ghosts of the life and family you've always thought you could have if you just worked a little harder, but just can't bring yourself to get.

That can't be somebody's name.  Can it?  I picture Buzz Killington riding Chuggington the train over to the Chillingham Castle.

tuna fingers: That can't be somebody's name.  Can it?


No, it's the name of the nearby town from which the castle takes its name.

If by "equally haunted" you mean, "not at all", then I'd tend to agree.

My daughter, who seems to have an affinity for scary stories asks me from time to time, "are there such things as ghosts?"
All I can really tell her is that there are legions of people out there trying their hardest to come up with some sort of conclusive proof that there is, and have always failed.  So for now, I think the answer is still no.

I got drawn into a do they or don't they exist conversation on another forum and was just shocked that the majority of people believed in ghosts, no questions asked.  And if you don't believe in them, you're closed-minded for not taking people's ghost stories at face value.

I don't know if ghosts are real but I definitely believe in the realm of the supernatural.
Religion aside I find it extremely difficult to think that once you're gone you're gone. I definitely belief in the existence of the 'soul' and that we're more than just the tangible flesh, blood, and electrical pulses.

My official stance is that until I actually see evidence in person, they don't exist. Unofficially, I'm still unable to explain the weird pinging noise from the kitchen lamp shades that only happens at night. I would chalk it up to the glass cooling except it happens when they've been off for hours. But if that's the thing that amuses our 'ghost', fine, have fun...

If all houses are equally haunted, then technically NO house is "the most haunted."   Your headline, while amusing, is most illogical, subby.

I may be making this up but I assume that it could be something to do with the glass cooling as the room temperature gets cooler at night?

I think where most people go wrong is "I don't know what this thing is, so therefore ghosts."

A friend of mine is on one of those paranormal investigation teams.  He put out a call one day recruiting new members.  I said to him, "Why don't you add a sceptic to the team?"  His response was that they are ALL sceptics.

Now, I find that sorta hard to wrap my head around.  By that mode of thinking, his group's entire purpose is to disprove that ghosts exist?  Sounds kind of counterproductive to me.

I guess what I was really getting at was...  I've seen the way these people react to the slightest little shred of evidence.  They get all like, "OMFG!!!  DID YOU SEE THAT?!"  I think it would be refreshing to have someone on the team simply say, "uh, dude...  That's a shadow."

I don't take people's ghost stories at face value either even though I saw a ghost myself when I was 13 years of age. Back in 1975.

I would today dismiss it as a teenager's over active imagination if it wasn't for the fact that I mentioned the incident to my siblings a couple of years ago and two of them told me they had also seen something ghostly in that house. Oddly none of us were frightened by it at the time nor did we mention it to anyone else until decades had passed. I also had a strange experience a few months ago.

I don't mind if you don't believe me - why should you?. Maybe it wasn't a ghost. I don't really know what it was.

I've seen and otherwise experienced my fair share of freaky stuff, but I haven't yet seen any kind of investigation as to whether this kind of phenomena might be very real, but have their effects solely on the mind - all the study in this area seems to focus instead on the outside physical world.  The fact that objective physical evidence is extremely hard to come by may indicate that what is considered "supernatural" may in fact be "something that messes with your synapses and by extension, your senses".  I don't guess it's very practical to wire up every ghost-hunting team member to a portable EEG though.
