You'd think with this fear I'd stay far away from ghost hunting shows on TV. NOPE! I love watching those shows. They scare the crap out of me but are so interesting. Especially the EVP (electronic voice phenomenon.) I like closing my eyes and listening because if you watch the subtitles they put up for what they think is being said, then your mind picks out the words. Closing my eyes allows me to just listen and sometimes I hear words and other times I don't.
What scares me the most out of those shows is the pictures or things they capture. Now, I'm not totally convinced. The shows are shot in complete darkness, (one show explained it by doing a daylight show. The reason for doing it at night is there are no shadows and they don't have to waste time ensuring that what they are seeing is a shadow and not something else,) and with limited visibility, your mind can play tricks. Is that really a figure you're seeing or is your mind completing the outline of a figure?
This picture was when one of the shows went to Boothill graveyard in Arizona. The show, I forget which one, said this is one of the few ghost images that hasn't been disproven. All attempts to recreate it have failed so far. Apparently, the guy in the black hat is holding a knife.
Most of the time, the shows only capture a few things that I think could be something paranormal or not of this world. I really enjoy the shows that debunk too. They go to scary places too. Like an island in Mexico full of dolls. In Destination Truth, they went to this island in Mexico and as they were talking, this doll's eye just popped open. What's even creepier, they had just been discussing that doll's eyes opening. No idea if it was co-incidence or not, but holy crap! That is one place that is off my vacation list!
I hate dolls that have eyes that open and close. =|
