Uh-oh.. sinister 'members only' clubs ?

Is there a secret handshake involved too ?

Yes, yes! Neil, tell us what this social club is all about biggrin.gif

Yep, it's so sinister that anyone can get a Membership!!
No funny handshakes for the Members, although the local Masons hire the room upstairs for their Lodge Meetings!
The only Uniform you have to wear is Lederhosen with an ABBA T-shirt. It only has to be worn once, upon your initiation to the Club.

Oh, you guys are intense about it. smile.gif I don't think I believe in that kinda thing. Orbs and such caught on film. But we did a ghost tour and took all the pictures and such. it was silly fun.

Awesome - yes we stayed at the Marshall House 2 years ago. I still have footage I have not gone over from there, but did not catch anything at this point. I put the video camera on night vision and placed it at the top corner of the bed and was able to capture wall to wall - the only way you could tell the camera was running was because there was a box of tissues that sort of flickered in the wind of the ceiling fan - I mean, IS IT TOO MUCH TO ASK FOR A CIVIL WAR SOLDIER TO WALK THROUGH THE ROOM???!!!

I believe that there's something out there for certain smile.gif People usually make stories up, simply because since the dawn of time, we have been used to talk silly things about what we don't understand..yet smile.gif

Look at the prehistoric humans - they believed that thunder and lightning are deities punishing them for some reason. As humanity evolved, science has demonstrated what these things really are. Who to say that one day, we won't really understand ghosts, or even get to communicate with them without the whole horror story attached?

That's sort of my take on it Cosmin. I used to believe in the standard, face value definition of a ghost when I was younger. Now I am not so sure that holds much water.

I can't put my finger on a definition. I think some "residual hauntings" are things that may somehow be etched into the environment. Like the picture I saw in the early 90s. It was a picture of an old house being burned down. It was taken by the husband of a little 80 year old woman I use to work with at a local newspaper (she was our proof-reader - a retired school teacher). She and her husband were "salt of the earth" types, very religious and didn't even own a television set. There was an old house on their property which was at one time used for storage - it was the house her husband grew up in. They decided they wanted to clear the land so they had what was called a "controlled burn", where the local fire department came in and set the house on fire and stayed there to make sure nothing got out of hand. So the husband took pictures of the event. Most pictures were of them just standing around, nothing abnormal. But in 2 of the pictures there was clearly the misty figure of a woman standing in the window of the house which was on fire. She was wearing a light blue blouse and had her hair brown pulled back. (She was not visible except for in the pictures - which were standard 35mm film) The window she was standing in was the old kitchen window. Mr. Newton (the man that took the photos) instantly recognized the woman as his mother when she was younger. In one picture she was not as formed as the very next one taken. And the thing about it was, is that she did not die in that house. But I guess here energy somehow was captured in the environment. This is just something I can not explain.

In another instance, the woman that was my lawyer during my first divorce, was also my friend (and the girlfriend of my best friend) during high school. We had a few instances at my friends house. My friend actually had 2 little sisters that died in in house. 1 was 8 years old when she died, and the other was an infant. Later on his mother also passed away in that house. To make a long story short - Katherine (my lawyer) saw his eldest sister 2 times, not in the same year. The first time I had something happen there I was in 7 grade. I had gone in to use the bathroom (we had been sleeping on the back porch) and when I went into the bathroom, I left the door open and left the lights off - and walking out I heard a faint crying coming from behind me out of the bath tub. I told my friend that his sister (the one that was alive which had been adopted after the death's of his two little sisters) must have been sleep walking and was in the bathtub. We checked and the bathtub was clear and his sister was sound asleep in her bed. That is when I first learned of his two younger deceased sisters and he told me that his mother had seen one of them as well. He never had - and was not frightened by the thought of it - being his sister and all.

Another time, many years later. A friend and I "felt" the presence - broad daylight, it was very thick, almost like a cross between walking in water and opposing magnets. The stronger it got the more I felt I was going to faint. Bryant's parents were out of town that week, so he, and some friends of mine decided to spend the night there - except for Bryant , who slept in his old bedroom, the other 3 of use slept in the living room. We all 3 saw a pulse of light, about the size of a basketball ( I would estimate about a foot from the ceiling and 2 feet from the wall) It just flicked on and then flicked out. Sort of like a lightning bug mores than a light switch.

I won't bore you with anything else. And I don't have an explanation. But I can understand that unless someone has their own personal experience - it is a very difficult subject to believe.

Never thought about that version, to be honest biggrin.gif

Wow! Amazing stories man! Thank you VERY MUCH for sharing smile.gif I am a curious person, by nature and I do believe that there's more to life than meets the eye and more than we can understand at the present time. For now, all we can do, is believe and try not to get frightened, although it is in our nature, whenever things concern something that we do not understand.
