Things that go bump in the night  

Is "reality" limited to 2+2=4 factuality? Is there a supernatural realm of ghoulies and ghosties and long-legged beasties? What is the "holy ghost"? Is there such a thing as "the soul," or is that term solely applicable to jazz musicians and Tina Turner?

    Have you ever encountered the supernatural? When a former roommate lived in my apartment, I'd feel presences and hear footsteps. Flags hanging on the wall would ripple, even with the windows closed. That stopped when he moved out.

    Is there a supernatural world? We are spirit. Our souls survive our bodies, either to reincarnate or move on to heaven.

    If you were a ghost, where would you haunt? Old castles and giant mansions. Probably my friends, too.

    Have you had a supernatural encounter? I recently rented a place where I'd see shadows pass and hear noises when I was alone, and there were sections that were always cold.

    Is there a spiritual world? Everyone has a guide, but some of us are more open to signals than others.

    Where would you haunt as a ghost? To me, it's less "haunting" than trying to communicate.

    Have you experienced the supernatural? I've never seen a ghost, no. I have friends who have, though.

    Is the supernatural essentially scary or comforting? Its scary if you believe a higher being is out to punish you for wrongdoing, but not if you think that spiritual entities are there to help you along.

    What do you fear most in the dark? Myself.

    Were you a ghost, where would you haunt? The streets of Manitou. Id pop in and out of every place to creep people out for a second.
