Toowoomba by name too-woo by nature, am I right?
According to various news sites Toowoomba, Australia is the world’s Most Haunted Town. Evidence has been flooding into a Facebook page called Toowoomba Ghost Chasers set up by Kylie Samuels and Katie Harvey. Shame then that the evidence provided to back up this claim is mediocre, at best. The latest batch of evidence includes a ghost in a red dress floating through an old train station, a gray ghost sitting on a tombstone and a “blue mist” wafting through a cemetery but a quick look through the Facebook page reveals psuedo-scientific ghost hunters getting excited about any little oddity that turns up in a photo submitted to their page. The priority with these ghost hunters is headlines and attention rather than accuracy and a decent methodology so I can’t even bring myself to pass comment on their collection rubbish photos which look like a whole bunch of nothing to me. Boring. Except, of course, for this particular gem. Described as a mournful spirit sitting on a grave.
Isn’t that just a shadow from a gravestone? Come on, guys… really?
This is a ghost photo that has left ghost hunters clueless apparently. Where did it come from? What does it show? The Express reports ‘Ghostsnghouls.com, which posts the picture, said: “Little info exists about this photo which appears to show a boy’s disembodied head floating in the woods behind a cemetery. What do you think of the spooky image?”‘
I too was completely baffled by this photo and while inspecting it I actually noticed something that others seemed to have missed. If you look closely at the gravestone to the right of the photo you can actually make out another face which I believe belongs to the most attractive, talented, brilliant and all-round lovely woman I’ve ever seen.
I bet she’s got a great blog… she looks the type.
For real though? I have questions. Why is her face smaller than the baby? Why does she look terrified? How does a ghost get in the womb? Are we even pretending that we don’t know this is just an illusion given sentimental value by those who saw it? And why aren’t we talking about the evil lady that appears at the 26 seconds mark?
