November 17, 2011 update- it appears that as usual- Snake Oil Salesmen have the most fragile of egos.

How DARE I criticise Your Holy Ghost Stories, oh frauds.?

I'm a Cynical Older Male.

A God who could make good children as easily a bad, yet preferred to make bad ones; who could have made every one of them happy, yet never made a single happy one; who made them prize their bitter life, yet stingily cut it short; who gave his angels eternal happiness unearned, yet required his other children to earn it; who gave his angels painless lives, yet cursed his other children with biting miseries and maladies of mind and body; who mouths justice, and invented hell - mouths mercy, and invented hell - mouths Golden Rules and foregiveness multiplied by seventy times seven, and invented hell; who mouths morals to other people, and has none himself; who frowns upon crimes, yet commits them all; who created man without invitation, then tries to shuffle the responsibility for man's acts upon man, instead of honorably placing it where it belongs, upon himself; and finally, with altogether divine obtuseness, invites his poor abused slave to worship him!
Mark Twain, author and humorist (1835-1910)

Ridicule is the only weapon which can be used against unintelligible propositions. Ideas must be distinct before reason can act upon them; and no man ever had a distinct idea of the trinity. It is the mere Abracadabra of the mountebanks calling themselves the priests of Jesus.

Ghost Stories from Moongrim

The Oregon Caves Chateau on 2010-10-04

My mother came out to visit me and my family just recently. One thing she'd wanted to do when young, but never got to do: Visit the Oregon Caves. So before her coming out, I reserved a number of rooms for her and my family, at the Oregon Caves Chateau. Part of the nuance of such was that it (the ...

Military Brat's Boogeyman on 2009-01-05

I was and still am a military brat. My first paranormal encounters began with my earliest memories of my life at Quonset Point Naval Base. My father was a computer analyst/programmer and as such we got to live on base in a mobile home park. Since my earliest memories were of mobile home parks, I alw...

Dude, I sure as heck wouldn't leave my haunted bedroom to allow a much younger brother to take up residence in it for me.

At the very least I'd sack out on the couch. Until you move your baby brother's stuff back into his original room- you're a coward and a reprobate.

Fergie- I'm onto ding dongs.

I don't see you getting onto JesusSlaves inappropriate rantings.

So why are you singling me out?

So let me get this straight.

Big Tough Guy- you.

Exchanges his bedroom with his baby brother, so that HE can get to enjoy scary spirits in the middle of the night?

There is a demon in that house.

You.

Yo, Jesus Slaves...

If God's Gift is Eternal Life, then why are so many Christians filling up cemetaries?

Oh wait, you gotta die first before you get your reward eh?

Upon which you'll find out that your "reward" was for following the wrong religion.

Hypothetically speaking---

IF ghosties exist, then they must some form of 'energy' that we've not encountered yet.

Continuing with that hypothesis- ghosties using that self same energy must be able to... Lack of a better term... Channel it.

Which begs the question: Why?

I've encountered stories from many associates who've had the exact same thing occur. Not guitars of course, but usually child toys...
Ergo- they may be attempting to communicate. Perhaps some form of Ghostie Morse Code.

Having worked hotels in my younger days. I'd say that yes, there are some maintenance folks who do work at 2 in the morning.
More than likely a security person in a "middle of nowhere" hotel would be curious about whom is doing laundry at 2 in the morning.

Best guess? If a printer is networked, then someone can tap into it, regardless.

Printers more or less, have their own coding sequences, often down to the particular make and model. A samsung black and white printer may not necessarily have the same coding that a samsung color printer would- for instance.

My own network at work, gives me access to printers clear across the country.

How do I know this? When I got a call from someone across the country asking me why I was printing stuff from their printer.
And Shaitan hates Muslims, Lucifer hates Mormons, Beelzebub hates Catholic Christians, Old Scratch hated Martin Luther so much he gave him bowel troubles.
And so it goes, you know you don't have a proper cult (religion) until you're being persecuted by someone/anyone, even if they don't exist.
According to this post- http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20100803132438AAAHGyO

There have been 13 deaths recorded at Kingda Ka.

Money always trumps safety.
Yowza.

I'm not the least bit religious, and I don't have ANY problems with ghosties.
In addition to a recorder, another idea for an experiment: Have someone or two, hold a conversation at various levels of loudness and in several different places over time downstairs, so as to try and emulate the conditions of what you heard.

Thus if you decide to go with discerning further- you can/could find out what spots would be the best to 'listen in' if such occurs in the future, and where the conversations are coming from- if you were inclined to point a camcorder at the spot.
Make a sketch. See if the locals recognise him. I don't suppose you've checked to see what or where he was staring at? May be important.
Finding out more about him- I'd recommend contacting the local VA.
Http://www2.va.gov/directory/guide/home.asp?isflash=1

Because more than likely, someone, there is aware of him and has dealed with him.
Failing that, there is the possibility of contacting the local homeless shelter- for possible information. From my time on the streets- soup kitchens required one to sign in before getting something. If you tell the manager at the kitchen your story- you'd have a better chance of finding more info, privacy issues and all.

At the very least, someone at the kitchen may let word out about the dude and find out if anyone there knew him.

And ZzSGranny, yes technically it is impossible to 'puke one's guts out'; however, with my own work with Vets and alcoholics in mine life- one long term alcoholic can, over time, cause rips and tears in one's esophagus and eventually cause parts of it to be totally or partially expelled.

Which is indeed a gruesome sight.

Almost sounds like a couple episodes from "Supernatural"...

Well if you can find some stalwart folks with a set of video cameras- it'd go a long way towards ascertaining whether the car and big rig are in fact ghosties or just another set of nervous locals stalking whomever is coming by- or the inspiration for the series of horror movies: Wrong Turn.

I do find it strange that you made no mention of seeking medical care, nor of the after effects of getting rear ended- whiplash usually has some long lasting effects.

It ain't shapeshifting, crecentblue03, that we've got a problem with. As plenty of stories involving Skinwalkers and the like have been reported and taken into account.
What we have a problem with- is obviously fictional accounts, disguised as a 'real' encounter.
What we don't know for sure is, if there really is a life after death. Or if folks are just projecting their own desires.

So where did this account occur? What were the circumstances? When did it occur? What was the person's emotional state prior? This reads less like a personal account than it does a story outline.
