    Default The ghost mystery

    Just came across this local news item about a McDonalds haunted by an 1800s woman:

    VIDEO: Is Eltham McDonald's haunted by ghost of headless pregnant woman? (From News Shopper)

    Can anyone who believes in such claptrap explain why ghosts always seem to be from the past? Surely people these days can die in the same traumatic circumstances, with the same sense of unfulfilled duties etc. Why are there no ghosts wandering around in hoodies or onesies looking at their IPhones???

    Maybe the religious can also explain why god never appears to mortals anymore now we have cheap devices to record his presence?

    Catholics believe he's present in every Eucharist. Or do you mean stuff like this

    Boomers tend to believe in “freedom of speech”, which is a fascist concept used to spread hateful ideas.Given that hate speech is not possible without free speech, any defence of free speech is a form of hate speech. - Titania McGrath

    God is all powerful, so he can control all forms of electronic devices that might capture his image
    He is even more powerful than the iphone x
    and he supercedes all versions of windows.

    I don't believe in God, but if I did, I would ask him to smite you a bit, for your irreverant questioning.

    God even knows what that spotty twat in KFC means when he asks you if you want the 'bargain meal'

    'No. I asked for a large fries and two bits of chicken. Now fck off before I get God on your fckng case. you spotty twat'

    Interesting that the time count at top right is overwritten by some Chinese characters just before this "teleportation". Curious too that the teleported bike/man are so poorly defined compared to the lorry that almost hits them and the car that turned just before. Somebody needs to try a bit harder when doctoring videos.
