Lightbulb Got voices?

Of course you do. Who doesn't? However...do you get voices from the dead that can be recorded on audio tape?

...

Well, apparently it does happen. The kind folks at Ghost Investigators Society have a non-profit organization which investigates this particular phenomenon. Known as EVP, which stands for either 'Electronic Voice Phenomena' or 'Elvish Vortex Police' (depending on your particulat state of sanity at the moment,) this is something that has been bantered about for decades.

It's interesting to note that Alexander Graham Bell, the inventor of the telephone, thought that it would be possible to construct a machine for talking with the dead.

Anyway. Here is a link to a list of some *authentic* ghost recodings. Feel free to give them a listen and research a bit before voting.

I played Pink Floyd's 'The Great Gig in the Sky' backwards and listened to the background hiss...and Aleister Crowley's ghost told me that 'PTDC' stands for 'Pretty Terrified of Dead Crowley.'

Good luck getting to sleep tonight.

if a ghost is so supernatural, how the hell did it get it's voice recorded on a damn tape recorder. And a non profit organisation? Never believed in them either. What the hell is the point in running an organisation without profit. surely if your even just trying to help your fellow man you'd like to get something in ruturn. maybe thern they could get some good quality tape recorders and some brand new tape that didn't have other peoples voices on them already.

If the voices are still there after you turn off the tape machine...well, then you know something else is going on. You could have gnomes!

Yes, that means you're hearing voices and are well on your way to total mental health.

And gnomes are completely fictitious. Of course we can't rule out the fifty foot stay puft marshmellow man.

Grass clippings aren't good for smoking. Stick to the traditional stuff, Zoom.

I called the EVP and gave them this tape. Apperently it's creator of Sesame Street, Jim Henson.

Exclamation Satanic puppet

SamNMax: That is about the most...wrong thing I've seen all day!

I discovered where the voices are coming from. There is a little blue elf named Hicklebottom living in my glove box who lives on stale ketchup packets and apparently uses my car radio to transmit EVP messages to distant tape recorders.

...

Well, I guess that solves that.

Yes, everything... except the case of the voices on the tape!

Nope, I'm just listening to Baldric read a book on tape.
