Ghosthunters UK on YouTube
Ghosthunters UK was a TV series about ghosts. We've discussed it before but now it's now on YouTube woohoo!
The chap who saw the Roman soldiers in the cellar was called Harry. I think he died a few years ago. His account is in the first episode.
Had a great day's cycling, between Chester, Llandudno and Conwy. Saw the Beluga XL land at Hawarden Airport, rode along the coast a bit, had pizza and beers at the Liverpool Arms on Conwy Quay. Out for 11 hours. Epic.
Heard a discussion of this on R4 t'other day, where it was stated that the lie detector tests are often indeterminate. In this case the producer decides whether it's a yes or a no.
So someone who is already relying on a dodgy discredited pseudo-scientific gimmick can be publicly called a liar...
Years ago I was driving a big Peugeot, waiting to pick up one of my kids late at night in town. I was way too early so parked up discreetly on a side street. Two merry young women then opened the doors and jumped in, thinking I was a taxi service!
They were polite and cheerful but hopelessly...
I've noticed that battery-operated watches stop if I don't wear them. If I then reset the time on one it will merrily tick away and stay working as long as it's used.
Watches must sulk when I don't pick them.
My sister's mate was once picked up hitchhiking by a weird bloke. He begged her to allow him to 'put just one finger in, just a bit!' and she was considering letting him do that just to get away when she noticed he had webbed fingers...
Yup, you grow out of it.
The ex and I were strongly anti-Church. Can remember my sister telling me how my little nephew had asked her the usual question, 'Can God even see me when I'm on the toilet?'
I felt proud that my own children would never say that!
Indeed! Been there.
When my eldest was a toddler we lived in an upstairs flat with windows that opened wide. I repeatedly told the ex NOT to leave them open.
Of course he did, repeatedly, probably to wind me up. One day he did it and I didn't know, but Junior did. I turned my back on her for...
Last night we watched Astral, which is a fillum about astral projection. Dunno if it's been mentioned yet on'ere.
The introduction said it was based on real events (or near as dammit) and recommended people didn't try this themselves.
Techy reckons it was accurate. He knows a lot about the...
It's likely that everyone DOES pray. Most of us are taught to do it as children. It comes naturally.
Who hasn't muttered 'Please God, let my fuel last another mile!' or 'God, make this cold go away before my holiday!'
Besides which, I've read that 'the desire to pray is a prayer in itself...
The trouble is, appearing on TV looks easy when it's not. People turn up thinking it'll be a breeze and they especially believe they're there to put a point across rather than be made a spectacle of. They think they'll be able to handle it.
The ex and I once went on the Kilroy show and it was a...
I was eating rhubarb* & custard and talking about weird stuff with Techy. Glancing down, I spotted A SKULL MADE OF CUSTARD on my spoon!
Techy scrabbled for his phone to take a photo, which took a minute or two, during which time the skull slid a bit and lost some of its shape.
It's still a good...
Did Donne at university. Once, all alone, I watched an edition of Mastermind which had a contestant who specialist subject was Donne, and I got every question right! But there was only the cat as a witness.
A condiment name translates badly into a dialect of the Cree language. This becomes apparent when Heinz try selling it to Cree people in Canada:
New Heinz condiment Mayochup has an unfortunate translation in Cree
