    I've seen supernatural things and happenings from supernatural things. Whether I consider them ghosts or not is another matter though.

    I have heard of it enough to beleive it probably happens, but you probably have to be sensitive to it. And I think I am not.

    No but as a kid, I slaped one of the people working at a haunted house accross the face. Think he was a wearwolf. He was sticking his head out some hole, so I'm lucky he couldn't chase me.

    Yeah, I've seen one, two actually. The latest one was when I worked in animal control. I worked the 1st watch (deep nights) sometimes with 2 other officers, often alone. We worked in an old animal shelter, an old building behind the Dallas Zoo infested with rats from the nearby creek. The radio room (a front office) was seperate from the main building and had a small glass window on the front door. Between the radio room and main building was a breezeway which lead to a courtyard and the other end was locked with strong burglarbars.
    At night I would continiously see from the corner of my eye, a head slowly pass by the small window of the front door. There was no way to enter through the burglar bars or the courtyard door! I would make my security rounds and everything was locked. In the daytime, this wasn't strange since people came to the animal shelter during business hours but at night I was often in the shelter alone and you can hear vehicles pull up to the building at night and the rattle of keys if another employee had to enter. Only 3 of us had keys to the building. At nights, we locked the parking lot so that cars could not even approach the building.
    One night I sat in the radio room with the other 2 officers, as it was a slow night and I saw the white figure from the side of my eye again. Before I could say anything, the other officers said "There goes our ghost." The dogs in the shelter would howl for a few minutes and we all know that dogs can see the dead.

    I never have.

    I went to Loyola High School in L.A. and back then, the Jesuits had its novitiate in Santa Barbara, CA that incorporated the house that Lindbergh family retreated to after kidnapping and finding of the body of baby Charles, Jr. was found (and presumably after the trial). It was said that after the family had left the grounds, the house was haunted by the spirit of baby Charles, trying to get find his family. Story goes that someone would be bowling in the alley in the basement setting up pins and everything...the noises were heard even though no one had seen or heard anything. Some of the guys would say that the felt the room get cold and then return to normal. Some of the Jesuits that I knew when I was in school believed that the house was haunted.

    By the time I was a junior and went on an overnight retreat to the novitiate, I was eager to find out about all the hubbub. One of my best friends SWORE that he saw something...to the point where he did not want to spend the night in the house or the guest rooms, so he moved into the dorms for the second night. I never saw or heard anything and a bunch of us went exploring but we never found anything. Still, it was regarded as haunted.

    La Llorona? My da used to work third shift in a state office building in Minneapolis, told me about doors closing and opening on their own and footsteps when there was no where around. My father in law works at a water treatment plant, told me about the ghost they have captured on the security video, walks around the grounds and whatnot.

    No, but I do love watching Ghost Hunters. I love hearing the explanations, like sometimes it's not necessarily a ghost that knows what's going on and trying to communicate and such, but sometimes it's just a sort of memory, a scene that replays the exact way over and over, whether or not someone's there. And that supposedly this "memory" can be attached to an object (for instance, and antique piece of furniture moved from one building to another).

    Whether or not it's true, it's definitely fun to watch. They're great at de-bunking stuff, and very objective.

    Personally, I believe they are all some variation of this. In fact, its not a ghost at all, but some kind of physical phenomenon that we just don't understand yet and we don't understand it yet because all researches start with the "assumption" that ghosts exist.

    I enjoy watching those shows too, but more for because I enjoy when they try to make it look scarier than it really is. They're hardly objective; almost every time they don't have an immediate explanation they assume its ghost. An objective person/team would go in there with no preconceived notion on whether ghosts really existed or not and let the evidence convince them one way or another.

    I beg to differ, they (I'm referring to Jason and Grant, the TAPS guys) almost never say the word "ghost", and if they have video or audio recording of something weird, they say something like "there's definitely some paranormal activity, but is it haunted? I don't think so". If they don't catch something on camera or audio, they'll only refer to it as a "personal experience".

    Now there are something like 5 different types of these shows now, and all the other ones I agree with you, they hear a bump and assume it's a ghost. Or travel halfway around the world to a cave that's supposedly haunted, and assume the "ghosts" can understand English. That just makes me laugh. I also find it funny when, they're obviously looking for and expecting some sort of "ghost" activity, then when they hear/see something, they freak out and scream like little kids.

    TAPS was the one I was thinking of. I agree they are probably the best of the lot, but I still hear them say many times at the end (when they experience something they can't explain).

    "It does appear to be haunted, but the ghost has never attempted to harm anybody. I don't think its malevolent, so I wouldn't worry or anything"

    They just said that on an episode I caught the end of the other night and I know I've heard them say that before. I paid attention the other night because they were doing a hotel in St. Pete (Renaissance Vinoy) that I'm quite familiar with. I used to work in Clearwater and we had our annual Engineering Banquet dinners at that hotel.
