You know, I must say it’s rather low for you to blame your rowdiness on the non-existent, but apparently at least one woman in East Yorkshire feels free to do just that. I guess people everywhere just don’t want to take responsibility for themselves anymore.
Leanne Fennell, 20, told neighbours that a ghost had been playing loud music and throwing empty beer cans into the garden of her home in Hull, East Yorks, when they complained about the noise.
Fennel has now been evicted from her council house after Hull City Council took her to court after ignoring a noise abatement order.
Council officers also seized four televisions, four DVD players and a CD player, which will now be destroyed, from the property in Wexford Road.
Furious neighbours had to put up with night after night of loud parties at Fennell’s home – which regularly ran on until the early hours of the morning.
Personally, I think that there is a fleshy (a live human being) off camera flinging the box forward, but I share video with you to let you decide. What do you think? Ghost or fleshy?
A fascinating concept in the research and study of psychic and paranormal phenomenon is that of the ‘poltergeist’. Poltergeist in its literal translation from the German means ‘noisy ghost’. Quite simply, it is kinetic energy that is manifesting from a source that makes itself physically known. Witnesses of such activity have spoken of items flying around the room, furniture moving, sounds of knocking from an unknown presence, and even actual attacks.
(I’m a librarian. I am walking through the children’s section and see a boy of around 12 browsing through ghost stories. He
picks up a book, opens it, and immediately drops it back on the shelf.)
Boy: “Ooh! That book’s too scary!”
Me: “What book is it?”
Boy: “Ghosts of Prostitutes.”
(I walk over and pick up the book. It is titled “Ghosts and Poltergeists”.)

There are two stories that are well known when someone mentions Greyfriar’s Cemetery in Edinburg, Scotland. First is usually the story of Greyfriar’s Bobby, one of the many tales around the world of how faithful our canine companions can truly be. Second is the story of the MacKenzie Poltergeist, where people have allegedly been physically attacked by unseen forces.
