This does not only include ghosts but I mean vampires and werewolfs? Do you believe that they exist and that the government might have a branch specifically investigating such creatures or events?

I think the government is itself made up of vampires and werewolfs and time travelers. I mean, how more more obvious can one be than to have a name like Wolfowitz and be fascinated by war? Didn't Cheney look suspiciously like an uncloaked Darth Vader, especially at the end of this episode, The Empire Strikes Back? And wasn't a recent President somewhat Zombie like? We've been told for years that the government has ghost programs in the military, and who might be involved? CASPER Weinberger! And does anyone NOT think the IRS isn't made up of a bunch of bloodsuckers? It is a plot, I say, and now they are shorting the rolls of aluminum foil and putting little triangular holes in it (look sometime) to keep us from making effective hats.

No they do not exist. As a matter of fact, these "things" have been investigated by scientists for a long time. Did you know you can create the same kind of images and halllucinations of ghosts etc by being exposed to highly charged magnetic fields, or to signifcant emotional stress. Moreover, some people are lots more prone to these images than others.

But I did enjoy the Twilight series of books....it was a very good story.

Vampires and werewolfs perhaps...
Zombies and undead for sure...
Ghouls and liches every one.

But not time travelers. Time travelers would make better decisions. Besides, if time travel were possible, where are all the tourists?

Vampires and werewolves, the legends of 100s of generations. Never seen, observed nor experienced. How could they be?
But of course, all stories originate somewhere, don't they? We all know stories about Vladimir Dracul, or some hairy Mexican family thought to have some sort of decease.

Regardless, i wouldn't mind meeting some vampires resembling Cullens, or a werewolf, as cute as Jacob!

Of course they don't exist...but just to be on the safe side, make sure there's a sturdy wooden stake close by when you go to bed tonight!

Talking eeek!

Ghosts - absolutely, I've seen them, and so has DH. It is very creepy when you and your hubby, or you and your mother can see the same person (grandmother) at the same moment. Harmless, thank goodness.

Vampires - I WISH!!! Anyone seen Spike lately?
He can bite my... er... neck anytime!
Angelicus, not so much. He's better as an FBI agent... I dislike anyone who is dark, self-pitying, and tragic.

EMOTIONAL vampires - Drama Queens - succubi - desperately, endlessly needy people who suck the life, and soul, and every single thought, word, and deed out of everyone they meet, endlessly and pathetically; who couldn't shut up their selfpityparty if they were paid to - oh lord the world is FULL of them! Maybe we could get a "real" vampire to bite THEM?

I do believe they are generally known as hallucinations. LOL!

Consider this question: "Do you hear voices?"

A paranormalist might say you were being visited by spirits if you say, "Yes".

The psychiatrist would say, "You are experiencing auditory hallicinations".

LOL!



Seriously though, maybe something paranormal exists, but there seems to be little or no verifiable evidence.

I was married to a vampire.

And, yes--she did suck the life blood out of me.

I've been divorced from her now for about 32 years. The happiest 32 years of my life!
