    That sort of thing will probably become much more common once Orbo is in wide use.

    Yes; two things of note:

    1) The club is closing for good soon

    and

    2) It has a history of "paranormal" activity.

    Which means this is a publicity stunt to draw attention to the club and perhaps keep it alive a bit longer.

    Like a lot of paranormal activity, this one probably started when someone went to a bottle. Not for a genie but for an excessive drink.
  1.  
    I miss a good ole ghost story whether true or not, films/movies just don't cut it the same as hearing a local tale.
  2.  
    Oh dear, is this what such an esteemed organ as The Times has sunk to? And Rupert Murdoch even wants to charge us for content like THAT!? Most local rags would think twice about publishing such twaddle.

    Nah, it's the folk from between the interstices. They're all shook up by the LHC.

    Well that seals it for me.

    ?
    The actual people who saw the ghost aver that the movie about the ghost is accurate?

    I guess that clinches it.

    Harrisville,, old village in the old town of Burrillville. I know it well,, nuff said. A friend of mine lived there back in the 90's in an old house on a high bank overlooking a small river. Him and his girlfriend got the bright idea to try and contact a guy who drowned there many years ago using a Ouija board . Didn't work out too good. He claimed they were grabbed and bitten by something they couldn't see, objects would get thrown around, one being a knife that flew off the kitchen counter and stuck in a wall. The best part was they heard something in one of the rooms upstairs and went to investigate. This was the middle of the summer but the room was ice cold and he said he could see his breath and that the widows were frosted over. He moved out. The experience bothered him so much that even years later he refused to go anywhere near the place, would only give me the address.

    This guy played in a band I was in at the time and I remember him starting to act weird and then out of nowhere he up and quit with no explanation. When he told me about the incidents years later he said that was why he quit. I wish he told me at the time because I would have jumped at the chance to look into it.

    Thanks for that Lakes, I'd been trying to remember the name of "The Stone Tape" for years. I see it's available on TubePlus-watch it if you dare!

    Supernatural reports have long been associated with sight - but now it seems visions of ghosts might be more closely related to something that's smelled.

    Research being conducted by a US university has shown there are possible links between the air quality of a room and the hauntings reported to have been seen in it.

    A team of researchers from Clarkson University in New York said that human experiences reported in many hauntings are similar to mental or neurological symptoms reported by some individuals who have been exposed to toxic moulds.
