    Pretty interesting story, which they say isn't a hoax.

    As the former "ghostbuster" of the group (Go ahead...say it Ceno), let me point out that in this day and age, ghost photos are exremely easy to fake, and usually are if they look like a living person. Most ghost photos look like all sorts of white anomolies on film. I once threw a wad of toilet paper in the air so it fell down around me and acted like something was "getting me" while a picture was snapped. The results were hilarious, but a lot of people thought it was real. We told them it wasn't, and was a good example of how people wanting to believe in something bad enough will think anything is real.

    I'm sure Bobolito could concur, almost anything is possible these days with someone who really knows how to use photoshop. Good ghost photos need to be backed up with correlating evidence.

    I've seen stuff like this before, and in the end it's just some place looking for publicity. BUT I'm not saying that the picture is faked...just that the likelihood is small.

    BTW...Spongemonkeys ARE real!!

    No you don't.

    So, you are in to all those ghost phenomena.

    Pretty spooky...LOL...[​IMG]

    Just kidding.

    Ghost sightings are pretty cool.

    I personally like tornado sightings.

    I love watching tornado chaser shows on t.v.

    They are pretty interesting.

    Delta...I didn't know you used to be a ghost hunter....I LOVE when they have those specials on Discovery channel.

    Gamer...although I don't wish the consequences, I would love to see a tornado live in person, as scary as that would be. As dorky as it sounds (and I'm not dorky by the way! [​IMG] ) the weather can be pretty interesting when it gets active

    Yeah, it can be.

    I used to live in Tornado Alley (Illinois and the other states that make up Tornado Alley), but the closest I came to a tornado was 5 miles away.

    I was 4 or 5, I think, and the sky got pretty green.

    It was pretty neat to see.

    We didn't hear the sirens, though, which is lucky.[​IMG]

    Yes I too saw the green sky of the famous 1990 F5 Plainfield, IL tornado. Although I was 15 or so miles away...I thought it was near us [​IMG]

    Uh, 15 or so miles away is near you. If you're dealing with one of the tornados that is in contact with the ground for hours at the time and it decides to change direction 15 or so miles isn't that far. I actually had the pleasure of watching Twister in a theater in Warrensburg, MO the same night there was a tornado warning so when we left the theater the sirens were going off. Creepy, although not as bad as those poor people in TX who were watching Twister when a tornado ripped the front off of the movie theater. That's good movie making right there!

    Edit: Actually, I found that was just an urban legend that actually happended in Canada of all places. Apparently a tornado ripped through a drive-in movie screen early in the morning and Twister was scheduled to show later that day. The media apparently took the story and ran with it. Eh, either way, it's still a good story.
