And if you're interested in "truth" as tautology
I give in, do explain that for me.
Moors murders victim, whose body in still missing, is being exploited by a 'paranormal group'.
A long article.
Unethical ghost hunters play detective
I've noticed people in privately owned houses usually want their houses to be exorcised after a ghost hunt. More official buildings and famous buildings are usually allowed to keep their ghosts because of fame and reputation and even more visits by ghost hunting teams.
When I was a kid, there was a story on the news about a program called adopt-a-ghost. The ghost would be transferred from the place where it wasn't wanted to a family or business where it would be welcome.
I remember being intrigued by the idea, but curious as to how one went about transporting the ghost from place to place.
It's hard to form a charitable impression from that.
I'd adopt the FLIP out of those spooks. Bring'em all over here, I say.
I have a magazine somewhere with an article about psychic investigations into the moors murders. Kept it to show on a MB I used to read about the murders. Unfortunately there were some creepy murderer-worshippers on there who'd brag about getting xmas cards from Ian Brady so the owner wisely closed it down.
I learned on there that the Bennett family are often pestered by amateur detectives and deluded 'psychics' who reckon they can track down Keith's body. I'm wondering if this lot are connected to the ones in the magazine? Maybe I'll dig it out and have a look.
I once heard a talk from someone who was supposedly investigating a haunting by a boy who had been killed. At one point he rather off-handedly mentioned that the boys mother had tried to kill herself during this investigation. It didn't seem to have occurred to him that then might have been a good time to stop (if not way, way before it got to that point). Horrible.
How awful. Shows that the 'investigation' is all about the 'investigators', not the dead person or their family. Totally exploitative.
I know people who've had a bereavement (not necessarily traumatic or recent, so it's not obvious) who've had strangers walk up to them and say things like 'I don't know if you believe in Spirit but I have a gentlemen here who says you must stop crying as he is happy now and he is proud because you are a wonderful person!' They then smile, squeeze the person's arm and walk away.
One assumes this is a prank. Maybe there are people out there who want to look like some sort of street Degsy. Nutters.
I'd be hard pushed not to lamp someone who did that to me in those circumstances.
'Lamp', heh, a good old-fashioned term! My late Dad used to say that.
Yup, we had a gruesome bereavement some years ago. Not a court in the land would have convicted me.
You'd have to be selective. It might get crowded.
Naah, the more the merrier.
Here's your answer: perform an incantation & trap it in a bottle. As we know, ghosts are stymied by glass. Easy when you know how.
Ah, so just like genies or witches (a la https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I_Married_a_Witch)
Much handier than that whole Ghostbusters type set up.
