I'm knee deep in novel work today, so I won't go on and on about bookstores or publishing or whatnot (except to say that I still don't like this idea I hear that full-price hardcover books are some sort of "bargain" when you know they'll end up discounted, remaindered, or in paperback soon enough. TWENTY-FIVE BUCKS! A quarter of a hundred! As an entertainment "investment"? If you can get the same reading experience for cheaper, why wouldn't you?)
But anyway, I'm going to keep it short and link to some debunking videos.
For example, have you heard about/seen the pantry ghost? Go on. Watch it.
Then another from James Randi, testing a psychic on his 90's television show. That's called cold reading, and The Amazing Kreskin talks about it a bit over here today at the AV Club. He's a "mentalist", but he admits it's all magic tricks and illusion.
And then there's the compass trick.
Why my interest? I guess I just want to know what's true.
So, ghosts and psychics: real or crap?
