I was watching Ghost Hunters today and shocked at how easily they claimed a place haunted, especially after spending alot of time saying that they’re skeptical and go in trying to disprove hauntings. Granted, they did notice a few odd occurances (a lamp moving about 3 or 4 inches within 4 minutes, some anamolies on thermal cam, and a human-like shadow caught on video tape), and even said that it they could all possibly be chalked up to normal occurances, but they never decided to persue that alley (or at least didn’t show that part on tape). I got rather frustrated when they just decided to say the place was haunted rather than find other reasons. After that was over, I changed over to the Discovery channel to watch the Mythbusters. Then an idea sprang in my head. Jamie and Adam seem to be very objective about whatever things they persue (they even took the pyramid healing power myth seriously). Surely the team could try to take on the myths of haunted houses? So tell me, is my idea good or would they just eventually resort to trying to blow up ectoplasm?
Oh, and when I pitched the idea to my girlfriend I even had the brilliant idea of combining the names of the two shows. “Hey! They could even call it Ghost Bu-- oh, damn.”
