Finally, definitive proof of ghosts.

Normally I’m fairly skeptical of paranormal phenomena, but this is so convincing that I must admit that ghosts are real. How anyone can watch this and not be convinced is beyond my understanding.

I mean, just look at it:


Making money off the credulous: The Ghost Bottle.

Did you know that ghosts can’t penetrate glass, cork, or wax seals? I was surprised to learn as much myself, but it must be true because some folks out there are selling Ghost Bottles that they claim contains one ghost of random temperament:

Each Ghost is captured from a reported haunted establishment, (house, hotel, ship, cemetery, etc), by our Ghost Hunters.

We seal the ghost in it’s own bottle.  The bottle is sealed for your protection.

No maintenance required; except occasional dusting.

You may release the Ghost at your own discretion and at your own risk.

The Ghost in the Bottle is contained mysteriously and is therefore sealed with wax shortly after the Ghost is caught. The bottle is sealed for your protection. It comes with very important information . We supply the Ghost, you supply the name. Individual Ghost experiences may vary as “Each Ghost is Unique”!

Each Ghost also comes with a “Ghost Certificate” which is signed by the Ghost Hunter that captures each Ghost and is engraved with a Ghost Hunters seal.

“The Ghost Bottle is 10.5 X 2.5 inches”

See what the mystery is all about.

Purchase at your own risk.

Make sure you read the warnings page of this site if you plan on opening the bottle. Remember, nothing may happen right away, but many have reported that strange things have happened subsequent to the opening.

Many people nationwide have already purchased a bottle or two. Some respond stating that they did break or open the bottle and nothing happend and went on to say that it was a neat gift novelty and great conversation piece.

But there are quite a few that broke or opened the bottle and stated that nothing happened at first but, later began hearing noises during the night, missing car keys, T.V. remote, refrigerator door left open and some reported that they have seen ghostly images.

There is a special technology that takes place when our Ghost Hunting professionals capture the Ghosts.  So, have fun and be careful not to open or break your bottle!

You have to admit that this is the perfect non-product to sell to folks who are silly enough to buy into such nonsense. If they break the seal and nothing happens it’s no big deal because you’ve already told them that was a possibility, but if something does happen and they get all freaked out and try to sue you can claim you told them not to break the seal. Because you know that there’s someone out there crazy enough to try and blame what they think is a haunting on the folks selling these bottles of air. So how much does a bottle of ghost go for these days? A mere $20.

There is at least one interesting aspect to this nonsense to ponder. What are the ethical implications if ghosts are real? Most definitions of ghost define it as a disembodied spirit of someone no longer living (read: their soul). These guys are cramming what could be considered sentient entities into bottles and selling them for $20 each. That could be somebody’s Uncle Joe or Great Grandma Miller sitting on your whatnot shelf. How shitty of an afterlife would that be? One day you’re hanging around the house you used to live in minding your own business and not really harming anyone and the next day you’re a “great conversation piece” for some schmucks who can’t think of anything better to spend $20 on.

Still, as a means of separating fools and their money, you have to give it high marks.

Amazing real footage of a ghost at a gas station!

At least that’s what the following news report would have you believe:

It’s amazing to me how many idiots you can find to put on camera and claim they just saw a ghost with even a pathetic bit of “proof.” And the news crew is doing nothing but encouraging the idiots to think like idiots. What could it possibly be? It’s so weird and spooky! It MUST be a ghost!

Fortunately, there’s still a few critical thinkers out there:

All it takes it stopping long enough to consider what you’re looking at before the answer becomes pretty obvious. Oh, but we can get on TV if we jump to stupid conclusions!
