Ah! October, the month of everything scary, creepy. Fun times with the macabre. Thrills with decorations, costumes and the occasional joke. Who wouldn't impressed? From the small child to the doubting adult, there is much to ponder about All Hallow's Eve.
I know for a fact that Halloween is one of Jean's favorite times of the year. The blog thread this week is a prime example and fitting tribute for the end of the month. I've not been fortunate to have seen a ghost as some of our posters have, but I've definitely felt odd sensations, heard my name being called and so forth. Of course, being an intelligent adult, my first course of action is to debunk the experiences like Ghost Hunters and Ghost Hunters International.
A funny thing happened to me this week, however. When I got to work, a couple of the guys were checking out an ap on their iphone called Ghost Radar. Apparently, this ap is free on the net. Download it and watch the scope cycle before you, catching unknown specters within your field of vision or a certain distance away.
Not only does this meter calculate where the specters are in your vicinity, it names them. Charles haunts our breakroom and something named Dark lingers in the hallway. The PRO Shop department is riddled with activity as is the back room, according to the scan. Our Ops team hears activity while working in the wee hours of the morning every day.
Do spirits of Native American Indians walk our halls? Could these be Civil War soldiers killed in battle? Settlers who died from sickness or mishap? Like Poltergeist, I'm inclined to wonder if our store wasn't built upon unknown graves.
Whatever the case, I'm thinking Ghost Radar is an uber cool device. Dare I use it at home where #2 claims to have seen three people standing in her doorway? Stay tuned...
What do you think about Ghost Radar and would you be interested in using it?
