Good story there. Do you have proof?

Drugs are bad, mmkay?

Yeah. I've seen those planchettes do crazy things too. Strangely, it was right at the same time as I moved them in crazy ways.

Father Malachi Martin? Not many people in the late twentieth century could claim to be a professional ghost-scarer.

Just another COS story.
COS = Crock O' Shit

Geezer was probably high off his ass.

"another benign ghost in corner of room looking on.."
With benign spirits like this, who needs evil ones?

Stories beginning with "I knew a guy..." is always the best..

Geezer Butler was most likely high as a kite. Or drunk. Or both. Either way, I'd be scared too. Well, of you, at least.

i knew a guy
"Some of my best friends are black!"

I used to hear stories like that all the time when I was a fundamentalist. Some even from the first person. Eventually I realized that the people who told these kinds of stories were (gasp!) not reliable story tellers. Furthermore, I realized that some of them would add bizarre, overspiritualized details to events that I had personally witnessed, until their descriptions had no resemblance whatsoever to what actually happened.
Suddenly, all of those crazy "I knew a guy" stories didn't bolster my faith anymore...

Sounds epic, but I'm going to have to ask for some kind of documentary evidence.
2/18/2012 7:47:50 AM
Does this sort of story ever work?
I mean on anyone with above room temperature IQ, so I'm not including fundies in the question. I know they eat this sort of shit up.
2/18/2012 7:48:45 AM
Or maybe 'this guy' was deceiving you because he wanted to screw with your mind.

Ouija boards are just a bunch of woo. They're completely benign, it's just all the superstition surrounding them which freaks people out. Same goes for anything else about the "occult." Add in the fact that fundies tend to be the most superstitious people on earth, and they totally believe any story like this.
Not to mention that "friend of a friend" stories usually always turn out to be total bunk. Just like I had a friend at work who swore up & down that he knew a guy who discovered that he had bought Elvis' lost motorcycle. Quick search on snopes and apparently lots of people have found motorcycles belonging to Elvis.

No capitalization. Almost certainly a troll.
2/18/2012 8:17:59 AM
Either a Troll or Bull.

"Ouija boards are just a bunch of woo. They're completely benign, it's just all the superstition surrounding them which freaks people out. Same goes for anything else about the "occult.""
Oh dear. Predictable response.
"Not to suggest I accept the original poster's story either... "I knew a guy"... "benign ghost in corner of room" indeed.
2/18/2012 8:31:34 AM
Yeah, sure and I saw an alien doing your mom.
2/18/2012 8:55:56 AM
Good term, but eh, I prefer BOBS, for Bunch of Bullshit.

I heard of a girl who said "Bloody Mary" thirteen times into a mirror, and then Bloody Mary got her and no one ever saw her again. I heard it, so it must be true.
2/18/2012 9:33:01 AM
If Satan is on the earth doing all the various things Fundies say he is doing, then i applaud him. At least he is doing SOMETHING. That's a hell of a lot more than I've seen of another supernatural entity they like to tout.
