top 10 things ghosts might really be instead of ghosts

I'm writing this entry because my other blog "Reasons why ghosts don't exist" is by far my most popular entry.  I want to see if this will give it some competition.

The other thing is, it seems that any time you get really scared of something, it turns out to be nothing at all.  And then you're scared of that.  We are just a race of sissy's.

10.  A low thumping noise - I've mentioned this before, but it's really true.  A low thump at a certain frequency will make you automatically think there is someone else in the room.  of course there isn't, but you will think they are and furthermore you will think they are up to no good.  All you need is the right frequency.  After that, it's easy.

9. Your overactive imagination - Me, alone, reading a book about UFO abductions/Ghosts/Bigfoot.  Loch Ness Not so much since I was never anywhere near large bodies of water housing surviving plesiosaurs.  Every creek in the house was someone looking to abduct me, I was sure of it.  I would hunker down under my blanket and make a tunnel to breathe out of.

8.  Do not take while operating heavy machinery - If you are taking some medications, it's possible that you will be inclined to see things.  Including but not exclusively ghosts.  You might see garden gnomes or gremlins as well.  If you are on something, you shouldn't really believe your eyes.

7.  But they said these were sleeping pills! - Kind of like above but in this case you might be seeing someone that has taken sleeping pills and is now in some state of zombification.  Sleep walkers are just as creepy as ghosts.  Even more so because they are REAL.  That glassy stare.  That vacant look.  EEEEEEEK!

6.  What time is it...HOLY CRAP! - If you are up really late and you are really tired, you will be able to start seeing things. It puts you out of the running for believable ghost story.

5.  Just one more for the road - I swear 1/2 of the ghost stories start out with I drank 1 more for the road and then I started walking home.  Then a woman approached me in old looking clothes.  And the story continues from there any one of several.

4.  I love sleep overs! - And so do ghost stories.  Mass hallucinations?  Mass Hysteria?  It's all possible.  If you were exposed to a bunch of 12 year old girls on a sleep over, you have probably been regaled with the tales of a ghost story or two at least.

3.  Who left the TV on?!? - If you really don't think the TV is on and you wake up hearing it.  it will FREAK YOU OUT.  But it's just the TV.  OR it's the ghosts watching TV because they are waiting for you to wake up.

2.  Scientists trying to contact you from another dimension. - Hey, don't rule this out.  Maybe the scientists are trying to contact you through a wormhole or dimensional doorway.  Freaky.  So don't be afraid, you are going to be advancing science!

1.  What's family for?  well I hope more than practical jokes! - I really wonder how many 'ghosts' are in fact your siblings trying to pull a halloween fast one on you.  Hey, it happened to the brady bunch on several occasions.

My problem was that the air tunnel would usually collapse either leaving me uncovered as I scrambled for air, or increasing the heat to uncomfortable levels.
