Who You Gonna Call?

Prolly not these guys.

Something strange going on in your neighborhood? You may want to give Brooklyn Ghost Investigations a call. For $20 an hour, the group of self-proclaimed paranormal investigators offers to go to your house to help chase away whatever goes bump in the night.
The group, which claims to have honed its spooky craft by watching such TV shows as "Ghost Hunters" and "Paranormal State," has one client: a man who said he saw two apparitions in his apartment.

Cicconi and another member of the group, Sergio Ocasio, 20, went to the man's house and waited until 3 a.m. to catch a glimpse of the ghosts.

"I caught something on tape," Cicconi said. "It looked like two lights moving around, like the spirits were playing with each other."

He said they used a homemade Ouija board - often used in seances to supposedly talk to the dead (or undead) - to coax the bogeymen to leave. But it didn't work.

"Sometimes, spirits are afraid to talk or to show themselves to us," Cicconi explained.

Not that i don't believe in ghosts. I'm chinese. Ofc i believe in ghosts. We are a superstitious lot. But these guys sound pretty lame. Dancing lights? pfft. I certainly wouldn't trust them to help me with a tree spirit that sucked out my life essence with its hideously long tongue. And yes, trees in china have tongues. Obliviously. Duh.
