What is the best thing to ask a ghost ?

Paranormal researcher Matt Schulz believes that simple questions are likely to get the best responses.

Schulz offered his advice during a midnight expedition aboard the 149-year-old ship 'Star Of India' docked at San Diego. "It sounds strange, but a question like 'What kind of pie do you like? Cherry or Apple?' actually seems to get a response from spirits," he said. The technique relies on asking simple questions that anyone could relate to.

"Once, we were investigating an adobe house and trying to contact the ghost of a girl and we asked her if she liked chocolate or vanilla better and she said clearly, as if she was in the room, 'Vanilla.'"

"Trying to make contact with a ghost? The key to getting them to respond may be pie -- or at least a question about it."

I've always thought that asking how they died would be the worst question, if the inability to accept their death is a big reason for them being a ghost in the first place. I wouldn't want to talk about such a personal subject to complete strangers just because they come in to my home and demand it.

I would just get outta there. There is a line in a classic Chinese movie that I love where the hero is having a sword fight with someone and says, "I'm going to have to kill you. Please don't haunt me."

1) What is your name? 2) Do you know what year it is? 3) Do you need something from me? 4) Are you looking for something? 5) Are you alive? ( do you know your dead may be shocking as some believe that certain spirits do not know they are dead) 6) (if no to 5) when did you die? 7) How did you die? These are the questions which may give you leads (ancestors newspaper archives, cemetery records etc. physical backup evidence) that you can follow.
