Recently, in an Austrian village…

Girl: [Telling story about girlfriends summoning spirits] The problem is, you don’t know in advance what you’ll get. You could get a good spirit, but if you get an evil spirit, it latches onto you and never leaves and hounds you until you commit suicide.

Man: The highest incidence of poltergeists is in households with 14-year-old girls.

Girl: Thanks a lot, dad!

Woman: You’re awful!

Man: Just stating a fact. Something about the psychic energy released during adolescence, maybe.

Girl: Great, now I won’t be able to sleep tonight.

Man: They did a study. Google it if you don’t believe me.

    Sounds like Portland, Seattle, Vancouver;
    an obsession with spirits, energy modalities, magical thinking. You can’t help but notice it if you spend any time in the Pacific NW. I, myself, attribute it to magnetic fields ;-)

    So it’s got nothing to do with the fact that your house was built upon the old cemetary.

    actually, i think my house was built on an old telephone-sex hotline. when i stare at the non-channels on the TV, all i see are half-naked women rolling around saying, “Ruf mich an! Ruf mich an!”

    As long as your phone doesn’t ring them (or calls you up) automatically, you’re safe :)
