It is easier to claim it is paranormal than taking the hard route and find out what really happened.

One should definitely get permission before doing something like this, especially if one works for the government.  They HATE surveillance (if, you know, it's not their idea...).

Like the whole thing about the kirby dolls...

Kirby dolls...?  I'm afraid you've lost me there.

Google doesn't seem to be enlightening me, either....

all government monitoring snark aside.

why would you think this was a good idea to try without talking to your boss first?

Sorry, I meant Furbies

Security concerns

Furbies were banned from the National Security Agency of the United States due to concerns that they may be used to record and repeat classified information.[16]

Oh my gosh, that's the funniest (yet totally plausible) thing I've heard all week.

Well, she might have felt she be laughed at, which is not out of the realm of possibility.  Still a very foolish decision...better to be laughed at than reprimanded.

The genius employee who found the infrared camera and turned it in because he thought people were spying. Yes, spies always leave their equipment out in the open. The intellect of middle America never ceases to amaze me.

I can understand why she was reprimanded to be honest though.

Not sure which is worse, her getting cameras into a government building, or the fact that someone as irresponsible as her could be employed there in the first place.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

We are often quick to criticize the lack of supportive evidence whenever we attempt to debunk a story. Yet, here we see a misguided individual who, at the least, showed some perspicacity in an attempt to validate an unknown. Should we, at least, acknowledge that attempt at validation rather than seeing this as a kick in the butt for Butte.
