                                                  If you submit to the poll, tell me what you put and why you think that way please.                                                  

I'm bored all the time and that is why I'm....bored.

                                                  i put they are cool.  
i dont think i have ever seen one but if i did, i would be like "no way, cool" i dont think i would be scared. y should i. if anything they are lost spirits.  maybe i will be one, who knows. they were once alive u know. so i dont think i would freak out.

                                                  i voted cool as well. i think ghosts have been built up over the years to be evil and harmfull. i dont really think so. think of all the ghost stories you have heard and read about. how many of those people got physically harmed? not many if any. so if most cant harm you, what is the big deal. people pay to go to parks and movies to get scared. why not have a ghost do it for your for free and you never have to leave the house.  laugh.gif  tongue.gif  biggrin.gif , anyways, thats just my thoughts.

                                                  I voted for "just plain creepy" because no matter how cool your ghost is, they still make your skin crawl.  It's an irrational reaction, but a real one.

                                                  After the vibes I was feeling from my experience in the oak grove, I find that they don't bother me. Unless of course I feel like I am in some kind of danger.

                                                  i voted 'just plain creepy' because i did not wet my pants but i also did not think it was cool to see a ghost.  i was too busy freaking out.                                                  

if there was a meteor,
adrift amongst space,
set about on a collision course
not with Earth, but my face...
i wonder if id even know,
at what time i might,
be passed off like an old style
and by the meteor be smite?

                                                  I voted Cool. I have seen a couple of ghosts now and have not felt threatened by either of them. I would like to learn a lot more about them biggrin.gif

                                                  I voted 'Plain Creepy' - it would be interesting to see or experience ghostly activities firsthand, but at the same time, rather unsettling as well.

                                                  I voted cool because for me it confirms that there is definitely something beyond human death. Maybe we'll get some answers one day to some BIG questions?                                                  

I was just thinking that of all the trails in this life, there is one that matters more than all the others. It is the trail of a true human being.

                                                   Hmmm I voted nothing new...... They don't freak me out and you wouldn't get me running the other way from one.....
<lol> The fact is that I seem to move in to places that have Ghosts, the one exception is my flat that I'm in now.....

                                                  I voted cool, just because I would be more interested in examining the thing, following it around, trying to figure it out.


If the thing took umberage at this and slapped me upside the head I would most likely wet (or otherwise soil) my britches and run for the zip code screaming like a girly-man.

One extreme or the other, no middle of the road.
Guess I'm just wishy-washy.

Still would be cool, though.

                                                  I voted cool, but I would have also liked to have voted creepy, if you saw one for the first time, you most likely would be at the very least,  nervous. but then afterwards you would think 'cool' I just saw a real ghost.
