Main Question or Discussion Point

no, my town isn't haunted *feels left out* :(

This is a thread that demonstrates how people get together to creep each other out, trying to top each other with more extreme ghost stories.

It creates a situation where it becomes socially more desirable to have seen a ghost (in this case : to live near some "haunted" place), such that the people who don't feel "left out" and "disappointed".

In this way, people teach each other standard ghost lore, and prime each other to want to see ghosts.

I saw as many jokes as anything. It seems to me that people are taught to ridicule such ideas as much as to believe in them.

My house is haunted. Whenever I go for a no. 1, I leave the seat up. Even if I haven't heard the toilet being flushed since, when I go back the seat is down. Also, whenever I run out of orange juice, a new, opened carton always appears in the fridge. I throw my clothes into the corner of my bedroom when they're dirty... a couple of days later, they're gone... the next day, they're in my wardrobe. And get this: clean as if I'd never wore them. Weird, huh? My girlfriend doesn't believe any of this. Whenever I try and talk to her about it, she just laughs, shakes her head and walks off. She's Scully to my Mulder.
