ok seems people have been wondering the point of the thread. the point is I was watching some show about ghosts and was wondering what other peoples opinions were and thats exactly what happened. isn't this off topic? does it need to make sense?
Well, I saw some strange things in my life. But that's all I'd call them: something strange happened to me and I can't explain it. But I won't call it ghost aparitions .. who knows what it might have been?So theres been alot tv shows on lately dealing with ghost, aparitions,spirits or whatever you want to call them. And I have to say theres alot of stuff that goes on that cant really be explained. so the question I post to you. Ghosts - Real or not? Discuss.
Probability? Very high.There are many strange things happening around me that I could blame on some unknown outside forces. Like the other day, a saturday if I'm not mistaken. After I got up, I took my usual morning dump and read an interview with Charlize Theron on the movie Hancock in my tv-guide. After I was done, I went down to the living room to pick up the daily newspaper. They always have some interesting quote of a random person on the front page. And what would I read there? A quote from Charlize Theron (the quote was in no way related to Hancock by the way). Only minutes later, a paper boy dropped some weekly shopping ad which attracts readers with a random famous face on the front page. And whom would I find there? Charlize Theron.
Now give me the figures on the probability of said things happening in such a short period of time. It's a conspiracy ... Charlize wants me ... badly!!! :lol:
Of course you have a point there. But still, it is quite a coincidence that I decide to read just that part of my tv-guide on that morning. And the newspaper, which arrives every day except sunday, decides to put up the statement of that very person for that day. And the ad, arriving once a week, decides so, too. And that saturday was in no way related to the release of the movie in Germany, because movies only are released on thursdays, and the release was like one month ahead. Surely, they'll start talking about it prior to the release, but there are so many variables in this case that one has to wonder about the probability of them coming together.Probability? Very high.
If a new movie that the press is pushing is soon to come out, and especially if they expect that it would have a huge following, You can be pretty sure that the stars who play the main charcters will be all over the news, whether related to the film or not. Everyone will put them on their front covers and will request interviews with them, because they know that people will read their papers if they know a certain celebrity is interviewed. Everyone expects to hear at least something about the upcoming film, so they will read it, thus the paper will sell more if they include at least something from the said celebrities. It makes good business sense.
This will come to a climax once the film is already out and after about a week it will die down. Unless the movie is phenomenal, in which case they'll be writing about it for months to come, until the academy awards knock at the door.
When I was a kid and my Mom and Dad wanted to go out they would bring us, my brother and I, to one of her friends houses for them to babysit us. Well a couple times we stayed the night and both times we heard weird shit. There were all sorts of weird noises that would come from down stairs and it was the scariest thing I've ever been through, we weren't the only ones hearing the noises either the people watching us heard them to and went to check them out to find nothing. For some reason the noises only happened when we were there, maybe it was because we were using a room they normally left empty, I don't know it was just scary as hell.
