I’m getting a little tired of people claiming that orb artifacts in digital camera photos are actual images of otherwise invisible spirits. How can a camera, designed only to pick up visible light, see ghost orbs, whereas the people in the pictures cannot? Well, here is a tentative explanation, courtesy of the website skeptoid.
Now for my spooky story!
When I was a kid, I had the bad habit of not watching where I was walking. It was sometime around 1958, and I was walking along Rosemont Avenue in Chicago.
There was a construction crew laying in a new main sewer pipe. I was looking at that, and then at the ground, as I started to cross Maplewood Avenue. From the rear I heard someone yell “Watch out!”, so I looked to my right to see a car coming north on Maplewood. I thought to myself, “Oh, I see the car, so I won’t get hit.”
It was then that a hand literally grabbed my right shoulder and firmly pulled me back towards the curb. I looked over my right shoulder and there was no one there, but I could see about 20 feet behind me a construction worker running towards me with his hand stretched out, as if trying to grab my shoulder. He ran up to me and I said to him “Thanks for pulling me back from being hit by the car!” He said “I didn’t do that!” I said “Well someone did, anyways thanks a lot!”, and went on my merry way.
