(Daily Star)   The strangest thing about this tale of a spooky mansion owned by a creepy millionaire is that no van-load of ghost-busting beatniks with a talking dog is involved (possible nsfw content on page)   (dailystar.co.uk) divider line

That's spooky?

It just looks like a half-built building, to me, but I'm from San Jose-ish, so maybe my sense of spook is skewed.

He said: "The 'homeless' - the majority of whom are so by their own volition or sheer laziness - are one of the filthiest burdens on the public purse today. The chance of my offering an opportunity for them to occupy Hamilton Palace is just ludicrous."

Nice guy.

Sometimes you wonder, where did all the money go?

I've never seen a multi-million dollar pile a shiat before.

Not really in keeping with the village's rustic aesthetic.

Yep, yep, grenades and porn, that'll do it to you everytime.

Invite them to start squatting the place and tell the police to ignore the complaints.

I was there a couple years ago and far as I can tell the Winchester house is nothing but a Disney walkthrough attraction.  It's so polished and touristy there was nothing creepy about it.

At least the Haunted Mansion has a couple of thrills involved!

Having said that, it was a neat attraction nonetheless

Agreed on all counts. It just seems that many other people find it creepy. :)

Now I'm picturing what the Winchester Mansion would be like if they did a ride through it.

Grenade attacks and pornography offenses, you say?

Make that "one beatnik, two yuppies, and one nerd".

Sorry.

I wouldn't unless I could frame him for arson when I did it. As it is, the place is probably a money pit that he probably can't get anybody to finish, nor sell. Best to just let it sit there as a reminder of how he was such a coont that he couldn't get anyone to finish it for him even with all his millions
