I just found out something yesterday that made me go "Whoa!"
If you go back up a few posts, I talked about poltergeist activity I had experienced. I had done my term paper on it, so I knew quite a bit at the time.
Yesterday I was watching an old episode of Ghost Hunters (yeah, I know, but I watch it cuz Steve is cute, so there) and they were talking about poltergeists.
They said what I already knew, and then had someone check the minerals common in that area. They specifically said they were looking for quartz and limestone. Paul mentioned limestone earlier, as a possible natural recording phenomena, but I didn't link it to poltergeists.
After GH mentioned it, I googled the town where I used to live and found that there are about a half dozen limestone mines around the town, some of which are now abandoned.
Made me amazed!
I had also mentioned Bruce, the c-store ghost. I talked to Heidi, the assistant manager of that store, a couple of weeks ago and asked about him. She said that no one's heard from him since the remodel.
She did share a story that's good for a laugh, even though it isn't paranormal:
Kathy (the former manager) used to pin everything on Bruce. She was a big believer. She was in the basement with another employee cleaning up some water that had gotten in after a big rain. A friend of hers came to visit, and Heidi sent her downstairs.
Not long after that, Kathy and the other employee came running up screaming their lungs out. Kathy said Bruce hit her, and the other lady said he had grabbed her butt.
Kathy's friend came up almost doubled over laughing. What had happened was that when Kathy turned to talk to her friend, she lost focus on the shopvac she was using, and the wand came up and sucked onto the other gal's butt, which startled her so that she threw her mop, which hit Kathy.
Both assumed it was the ghost and ran out screaming.
That cracked me up to no end.
Anyway, I'm putting this here because I can't talk to normal people about this stuff, and Paul was the first paranormal believer that I thought of that I could share my limestone "Eureka!" moment with.
