Amazing that so many ghost hunters have been there but were unable to bring back any kind of documentation of supernatural activity on the island.  One guy was possessed briefly?  What, did the ghost possess him then think, fark this, this guy's breath is terrible?

This is some brilliant history writing: "The trouble started back in the late 19th century when Poveglia served as a checkpoint for ships going to Venice. After a pair of ships carrying plague victims arrived in 1793, the island was sealed off..."

FarkinNortherner: The Muthaship: topcon: It's just an island. BFD.  There are no such thing as ghosts.

Yeah, but do you want to be on the demo crew if they put in a new hotel there?

Piles and piles of the remains if plague victims.....pass.

London has the most extensive underground railway system in the world and is practically built on the corpses of plague victims. So far no zombie apoca.....


Have you seen the people after they get off the tube? Then there's that smell...

My wife used to think our house was haunted by a guy named Walter S., who had lived there thirty years ago.  Any time something weird happened, she'd blame it on "old Walter" and sometimes ask him to stop.

After a few years I'd fixed all the old creaky stuff and broken appliances, and now the house is running smoothly.  No weird noises.  No doors that shut on their own. Lights in every corner of the basement.

Oh, and I found out that Walter S. was still alive and had a place two towns over from us.  He's in his eighties and on his fourth wife.  Was totally a smug SOB when I pointed that out to Mrs. R.

If I had the money, I'd be on it in a second. The place sells itself. Start out with creepy tourist tours and overnight 'experience' stays and work your way up to a resort.

Just keep some meddling kids and a dog on retainer.

I looked at it from many angles on Google earth, and found that there really isn't a suitable spot for both a Super Walmart and a drive thru Chik-fil-a so I'm gonna have to pass.

FunkOut: Shadowknight: Slaves2Darkness: Beats me, but my friends call me a null void. I kill Ouija boards, end hauntings, and stop supernatural crap. Course I'm an atheist and don't believe in any of that shiat, but hey keep farking those ghost chickens.

Same.  Atheist from early on, never really believed in the supernatural once I got past the "had a bad dream and want to sleep with mommy and daddy" phase.  But there is one weird thing:

Three separate "psychics," over the course of five years, and three separate occasions, were reading auras as a sort of party trick.  Each one looked at me, would ask me to move to a different light, and would confusedly proclaim that I had no visible aura.  Just, you know, nothing.  

Happen once, I'd say the person was trying to be mysterious.  Second time is a cool coincidence.  Three times, even my skeptical mind started to wonder what the hell that meant.  I assume there is some sort of web group out there on  Google+ that shares pictures of a random ten people that says "Tell this person he has no aura.  Will creep him the f**k out."

/make of that what you will
//I think it means I'm the Devil

I think that means you're an NPC.


That would explain this exclamation point that's always hovered over my head, and my obsession with always killing exactly ten of a thing.

nitefallz: There's no evidence this place ever was anything that is being told about it.  There's another island nearby that WAS absolutely used for plague victims and I think this is a case of fiction and mis-represented history becoming urban-fact.

I did some minor research into this awhile back when it was featured on TV as being haunted.  Mostly came up with info indicating this is the wrong island.


Wait, did you hear that... Omg look... Something moved... Oh man... This shiat is haunted for sure... Look! Look! Omg! Wow...

/isn't that a summary of every farking ghost hunter episode?

So most haunted means...not really haunted?

Or hey maybe they finally proved the existence of ghosts there and I just didn't hear about it.

That place sounds like it really does have some supernatural stuff going on inside it.


My childhood nightmares were about giant skeletons eating people, so, yeah, sod this place.
