I don't. Could balance a broom given enough time and the right broom.

I am not so sure anymore. Here's my story.

Years ago, I took a girlfriend on a dinner date on the Queen Mary, which is now permanently docked in Long Beach, CA. It was already dark when we arrived. I did not know about the history of the Queen Mary, and only thought it would be romantic to bring my girlfriend, as we were just beginning to date.

Only in certain hallways, I felt an eerie feeling, like something was there. Other hallways felt normal. I felt it was strange that I only got the feeling in the certain hallways. I didn't want to scare my girlfriend and didn't mentioned anything.

At the restaurant on the ship, there were only a few people. There was only one couple a little bit away from us. I was seated so I saw the couple, whereas, my girlfriend had her back to everyone else and only faced me (this was how they seated us).

The restaurant was dark, with lit candles on each occupied table. All of a sudden, the candles and candle holder on the other couple's table fell down strangely, the candles seem to slide in one direction toward the candle holder, while the candle holder slide in the direction toward the candles; like someone using two hands to push inward. The restaurant host, waitress, me, and the couple all saw it, and I could see everyone's eyes were opened wide in shock, no one said a thing. The waitress quickly went over to the couple's table and scooped up the candles and candle holder without bringing candles back. My girlfriend didn't see or know and I didn't tell her at the time, to not scare her.

During the weekend, I flew home and on a television show by coincidences, they featured the Queen Mary as being haunted and they even have ghost tours. I didn't even know about the Queen Mary been haunted before that.

The Queen Mary is a pretty big ship. I've had a few friends visit it for paranormal reasons, personally I've never been.

(Now that I'm not dying of heat exhaustion, starvation, and intoxication, I can write a bit more lol )

Here's a spoiler for you guys... 95% of all the "evidence" "sounds" "shadows" etc that you see on tv for paranormal investigation shows is fake, planted, producer/director demanded entertainment.

As some of you may know, I *used* to be a paranormal investigator for a NBC station.
I've had the pleasure of working with some shows such as Paranormal Witness, Ghost Hunters, Haunted Collector, etc

The reason I am no longer in the business is because when I was approached by our producer to fabricate evidence, I refused.

What really happens during most investigations is that you sit around or walk around in the dark and nothing happens and its a long, boring night... And of course, as a "viewer", you wouldn't want to watch that on tv... You want shadows, doors opening, banging, sounds, scary stuff... You want to watch people that are "so-called" professionals act like they are scared out of their mind and worried a demon is going to kill Zak. You want to see that glass with the fishing string tied on it fall off the bar -- but it really doesn't happen that way... Well, most of the time.

Very very rarely do you come across something that does happen, that cannot be explained. My job/goal was to help people sleep better.. I debunked 99.99% of all evidence gathered or haunted reports. (You'd be shocked how many people would get upset when I'd tell them their house wasn't haunted)

There were a couple of times though that I was completely baffled at things that would happen, I'd try my best to debunk them, but never could..
