I voted for the "Casper".

For whatever reason, ghosts are the only aspect of the paranormal that get my blood pumping. The rest is just ... meh.

But ghosts? Now we're talkin!

Aliens for sure. The thought of getting a train run on me in a UFO then dropped off like trash in the woods without a goodbye or anything scares me.

I say ghost because I'm more skeptical if Aliens even exists, whereas the former I wouldn't dismiss. Besides, if an Alien appears before me they are likely visible, spirits however may appear invisible.

OMG!! Political correctness has now crept into the paranormal? Now all of the "Beware of Ghosts" signs will have to be replaced.

Roflmbo.... Personally I think it's a bunch of BS, 'ghosts prefer to be called spirits'... Ghosts are just one kind of spirit. We ourselves possess a spirit. There are other otherworldly spirits besides those that are the lingering energies of a human. There are the non-human spirit forms like fae, jinn, black shadows, orbs, angels, demons.... and so on.

I have already seen what could have been a ghost, and it didn't scare me. While I believe there are probably aliens in far off galaxies, seeing one here would mean technology beyond comprehension, and that would be scary.

True. Technically, I am a ghost / spirit, who just happens to be 'driving' a human body at the moment.
Disembodied ghosts / spirits are to embodied ones what pedestrians are to those driving a car, imo. When
this old clunker stops working, I'll step out of it and maybe do a little walking before acquiring a new
'vehicle'.

Have seen & lived to tell about it; the ghosts.

The two times I saw a UFO were somewhat ominous: Something about seeing what you just saw, being pursued by Blackhawk Helicopters & F-16's is a little unsettling!

Especially as they were unable to "catch" it.

You can't catch them. You're either flying with them or blowing them to bits.
