Researchers at Clarkson University in Potsdam, NY are investigating the possibility that “ghost sightings” and “haunted houses” may not be evidence of an afterlife, as much as they are hallucinations produced by toxic mold.

Frisky Reads: Get In Trouble By Kelly Link

I was the kind of kid who eschewed children’s literature for Mary Higgins Clark and Steven King by the time I was maybe six or seven. By ten I was reading, and worshiping, Neil Gaiman’s Sandman graphic novel series and making my way through A Midsummer Night’s Dream. By high school, my favorite book wa…

News Crew Scratched, Terrorized By Ghosts During Visit To Local Haunted Home

First and foremost, I will start by saying that I love horror films, ghost stories and any excuse to scare the bejesus out of myself.

First Time For Everything: Sex In A Haunted House

Let me be clear: this house wasn’t in any way meant to be spooky. Nor was it Halloween. Even worse, my host didn’t forewarn me that there might be anything even vaguely strange about his place. The only thing he did mention, while unzipping my skirt, was that he was planning to put in a…

Ghosts Seeking Ghosts: There’s An Online Dating Site For You

Dating must be so much easier when you’re a ghost. No more worrying about what to wear (nothing!), who picks up the tab (you don’t eat!) or whether or not he’ll come back to your place (you don’t have one!). Your biggest concern when you’re a dead dater is what decade your date passed i…

We’re Breaking Up: Guy Who Exorcised A Ghost From A Woman’s Vagina With His Penis

Dear Huang Jianjun,

I know you take your ghostbusting extremely seriously. Killing ghosts has been your passion since you saw “Ghostbusters” in the ’80s. I’ve always wanted to be supportive of you and your dreams, so I refrained from telling you that I thought your idea to start a ghostbusting business was absurd.

Talk about sexual harassment in the workplace: Bartenders at a pub in the UK say someone in their bar is indiscriminately pinching their butts.

Ghost Loves Fruit Roll-Ups

Do we even need to debate this? Obviously, this supermarket in Australia is haunted. There’s no way that fruit roll-up could have just fallen off that shelf on its own. Not a chance! I’m hoping this means you can still eat food in the afterlife, which would be great news. I have a feeling that…
