I realize this piece of footage is does not have anything to do with the state of Oklahoma but it is has hit over a million views over the past few days on youtube. There is “ruckus” about this video and it has paranormal people talking. But why?
According to the shop owner of this IGA in Brompton, Australia he was told about the ghost that resides within the supermarket. They have pinpointed the ghost as well. Apparently a local boxer was gunned down outside while using the telephone. The bullet hole is still there and everything.
I do not see a lot of reports coming out of Australia when it comes to ghosts and claims of the unknown so I decided to take a better look and offer my two-cents on what could have possibly happened. Was it a ghost? If you want to believe that it is, that’s entirely up to you. But I personally think it was a lazy employee that didn’t want to take the time to return the haunted Fruit Roll-Ups to their rightful home.
Here is the first release of the story on a Good Morning Sunrise type of show.
You can hear some sarcasm (disbelief) by a couple of the hosts. I for one found it rather amusing that this clip made it as far as it did within the media.
Here is a more exclusive clip where it gives a bit more detail about the chewy event.
It seems the shop owner is pretty much convinced that a “ghost” did do this. What baffles my mind is the fact that he would rather admit he has a ghost compared to having imperfect stock clerks. When I was a teenager I worked at a local grocery store for a summer. I will admit that I did put items behind items that belong on other isles. I was too lazy to take them back to where they belonged. So, finding a box of haircolor behind the canned beets was not an uncommon thing. Oh, I wasn’t the only one that did things like this. We were all teens and we all wanted to have things done so we could get off work.
Notice in the video that the Fruit Roll-Ups belonged on the next isle over. Pay close attention as the store owner shows where the supernatural treats came flying from. It is a shelf full of what appears to me to be egg noodles/pasta of some sort? The noodles are lying there, all shiny, slick and plastic like. Is it possible that the roll-ups were tucked away behind the noodles? One swift movement of the air conditioning or even a loud non-paranormal noise could have made the roll ups finally slide from the noodle shelf? This may be a big giant theory/explanation but it’s better than a big bad boxer flicking Fruit Roll-Ups to get attention. I would hope that if he made a choice to use all that energy to make a paranormal statement that he would have at least used a more masculine product? Maybe not?
I personally do not think this story is paranormal at all. Closed Circuit Video that is motion detected can come on and record if there is a loud bang (from outside) or if an air-conditioning unit kicks on abruptly. There was no other movement recorded on the footage either. I would like to see this store produce more videos like this mainly because they are already convinced it’s haunted.
Have you ever been in a retail store and something just flew off the shelf? I have. It’s happened to me many times. I have even had strangers watch an item fall, we look at each other and telepathically acknowledge that “Yeah, it just flew off the shelf, glad you got to see it with me.” Was it a ghost? Probably not, but it was strange enough to instantly blow off for the sake of not being a bit paranoid. Over the years I have received a large number of emails about the retail area of where the old Belle Isle Power plant once was. Many people claim that some retail shops and restaurants are haunted. There are many reports on the internet about personal ghostly encounters taking place while people were getting great deals on a new pair of jeans or shopping for groceries.
How do you feel about the Supermarket Ghost footage that is getting nationwide attention? Ghost or lazy stocking skills? What do you think?
As a paranormal researcher I am asked a lot about the creature we call Bigfoot. The monster is very popular in our state and it seems that everyone that has stepped outside of the city limits for any amount of time has their very own Bigfoot story.
Just this weekend the TV Network Animal Planet was in Yukon, OK with high hopes of finding Bigfoot. Why they did not head to the southern part of Oklahoma is beyond me! Regardless, you can read about their visit to the Yukon area on this News9 Link.
People that have witnessed unexplainable (to them) monsters in the woods have a firm standing on their experience. They are convinced that a large creature was around them and no matter how much logic or possible explanation was given to them, they still believe it was Bigfoot.
I will admit that I am not a “fan” of the Bigfoot race that is currently taking place. I am not convinced that there even is such a thing as a monster in the woods. Being a self proclaimed city girl, I do not get along with the deep woods in the state of Oklahoma. I am more afraid of snakes and ticks than anything. The last thing on my mind is Bigfoot. Is it possible that Bigfoot shacks up in parts of Oklahoma? With as many sightings that are reported it’s hard to say that there is without a doubt no such thing as Bigfoot.
If you are interested in reports of Bigfoot you can visit websites that report sightings of the creature. You might be surprised that a bigfoot was spotted right in your own backyard! click here for one websites reports- BFRO.
Some reports of Bigfoot are nothing more than comical in my opinion. For example this report that hit local news some years ago. Click here to see photos and read the article. What do you think? Bigfoot? Bear? or Costume?
There are now countless photos being taken as hunters set up their game cams.
For example: This image was taken in Atoka, OK. Staged costume or is it Bigfoot?
Each year Oklahoma hosts the largest Bigfoot Festival/carnival/conference in this part of the nation. Hanobia Bigfoot Festival is held in the Kiamichi Mountains in eastern Pushmataha and western LeFlore counties lies Honobia, OK, a town with a history of strange sightings of an ape-like creature. They celebrate the fact that there are so many sightings and they welcome everyone. It is kind of like the “Roswell” of Bigfoot if that makes any sense. Signs like these are posted everywhere. You can also find a Bigfoot host/guide to take you out on a real Bigfoot hunt. With a click of a mouse you can have access to many Bigfoot videos on the internet. I do warn you… if you are into Bigfoot you may find yourself being sucked into that part of youtube where you may end up looking at even more paranormal things…such as people being born with teeth around their eyes or 3 headed squirrels!
I wish I had a great Bigfoot story to share but I don’t. But, I do have a story about a trip to El Reno Oklahoma where no matter who you are or what you believe the locals can possibly convince you that there could be such thing as Bigfoot.
While out doing a ghost hunt outside of El Reno we came across some locals from the Cheyenne & Arapahoe Tribes. The reservation outside of town is more known for the Casino than anything but it is riddled with claims of pretty much every kind of paranormal phenomenon outside of the Loch Ness Monster.
Finishing up an paranormal investigation a group of Tribal elders led us to a campfire. We sat around under the stars like small children listening to them share their first hand stories of ghosts, wolves, shadow people, shape shifters, screaming banshee’s and of course Bigfoot. The elders spoke to us about how they would set out food for the creatures and how they coexist with them. Of all the stories shared not a single person exclaimed the thought of fear when it came to the creatures. After our campfire tales we headed to the woods to see if we could witness a Bigfoot. That time of the year the monsters were supposed to be in the area so we were excited. We headed down and met up with a man who played strange noises over his car stereo into the woods. The noises were “Bigfoot noises” he had recorded. The method was to play back the recordings to get the creatures to respond back. He played sounds of owls, wolves and other animals that he claimed to be Bigfoot. The rumor is that Bigfoot will repeat sounds they hear, kind of like a Lyre Bird mimicking sounds. It was amusing and interesting to hear the woods repeat back the noises the man played on his car stereo. But what was the strangest noise we heard was not per-recorded and it kind of came out of the blue. The man played a screaming noise and from the woods, out of nowhere we heard a baby crying. The sound was of a very young infant, just months old. Nobody was in the woods making these noises back at us that we could see. We did shine bright spotlights into areas we thought a repeating noises came from. We were just amused until the baby crying took place, that sound pretty much made our skin crawl and jaws drop. It was truly an unexplainable moment. The man just smiled and said “He’s out there!” I never caught a glimpse of the Bigfoot of course and I am still not sure that they even exist. The baby crying moment was pretty bizarre and I would love to get more feedback about what we heard.
Is Bigfoot Real? Have you witnessed a Bigfoot? I would love to read your stories and get your opinions about this very popular paranormal subject!
The Ouija Board has fascinated people since the late 1800′s. Originally designed as a novelty item, the inventor Elijah Bond, The original Ouija Board is trademarked by toy maker that is still popular today, Hasbro, then later Parker Brothers. The board was nothing more than a harmless parlor game, during the Spiritual movement. The board soon took a nosedive into the paranormal realm as Spiritualist Pearl Curran made it her main tool in communicating with the dead. Before information and knowledge was available with just a click of the mouse. The phenomenal movement of a planchette in communication with an assumed deceased person the Ouija Board was magical and mystical to all of those that may have witnessed a talking board seance.
“The ideomotor effect is a psychological phenomenon wherein a subject makes motions unconsciously. As in reflexive responses to pain, the body sometimes reacts reflexively to ideas alone without the person consciously deciding to take action. For instance, tears are produced by the body unconsciously in reaction to powerful emotions. Automatic writing, dowsing, facilitated communication, and Ouija boards have also been attributed to the effect of this phenomenon. Mystics have often attributed this motion to paranormal or supernatural force. Many subjects are unconvinced that their actions are originating solely from within themselves.” - Wikipedia
The Ouija Board has survived many years as a toy and as a super scary spiritual tool. I thought it would be fun to go back in time and take a peek at the evolution of the Ouija.
During the 1930′s
Very rare 1950′s board
1990′s to present
Ouija just for HER!
Recently I posted comment on my team GHOULI’s facebook page asking, “Would you have a Ouija Board coffee table in your home?” the feedback was intense. Most people had no problem with it, stating “It’s just a table.” While other people decided to share their personal stories of horror. A few people have never touched a Ouija board and never plan too do so. I did as a few local teams and they just said “We don’t touch them” even after I reminded them they are sold at toy stores and at times a few feet away from infant car seats.
So, what are your thoughts? Have a story? Is it all nonsense?
PS- Outside of writing, blogging and chasing around ghosts I rejuvenate old furniture into new and fun pieces for the home! Well, I thought I would have some fun with an old coffee table and post it up on Ebay and watch the feedback. Outside of the controversy that is behind the Ouija Board reality is, this is just a coffee table. The table is for sale right now. I am just curious as to who is going to end up with it!
