If people think ghosts are real why aren't there ghosts of dinosaurs or prehistoric cavemen?

What's the crossbow death of someone beside the Wakehurst Parkway got to do with ghosts anyway ?
I believe the perpetrator was caught in that instance.

Fatigue, drugs and alcohol likely play a part in these 'sightings'.

Hi Guy's
I heard this story but had to find out for myself. The locals in Picton in NSW say that there town s haunted.
There was a lady whos name is Emily Bollard and she was walking thru a tunnel late at night in 1916 and was hit by a train and killed.

The tunnel now is a walk thru tunnel but still there and i drove to Picton and had to ask a local lady who told me how to get there then she said " are you sure you want to have a look at it".

I took my camera and i did find it and its is creepy just looking at it.
The locals say Emily Bollard has been seen in the tunnel and around Picton late at night.

Drive up Argyle Street thru the main Street and on the left hand side of the road not far from the Mc Donalds is the old Maternity Hospital which is now a Private home.

Locals say a Cranky Matron haunts the halls and residents have reported hearing the sound of crying babies at night.
They say that Picton is the most Haunted town in NSW.

I also drove to Junee on day and had a look at the Monte Cristo Homestead and took about 30 Pictures in the process.
When you drive thru the gate at the Monte Cristo Homestead theres a sign saying its "The Most Haunted House in Australia.

Maybe the Loch Ness Monster is a dinosaur ghost and Bigfoot is a caveman ghost.

Not about haunted anything, but about a road whose name I forget but someone will know it, Magnetic Hill?
You stop your car, neutral, handbrake off and your car rolls gently uphill, I even run a level on it and it's uphill.....
It's near Windsor or Richmond NSW........

It's at Grose Vale and is an optical illusion.
Nearly bought a property nearby

I wouldn't go near it, that's for sure... I did tell a story about it here though, from when I was a teenager. Running around on the grass up top, and being told off by the guard.

Woodend (Hanging Rock strawns lane) a very good optical illusion that gives impression you going up hill.
Maybe Slowsnake spirit level is possessed......

Go there? and prove me wrong, if it's downhill the car picks up speed or momentum, this hill is different, the car moves about a foot a minute, I got out of my car to watch it creep, in these days of phones that are not phones but cameras that can be used to make phone calls it should be so easy to disprove!....

Some spirit levels can be questionable at times depending which type you use.

This story is a bit trippy.
Good friend of mine has had rottweiler dogs for many years.
She lives in the south of WA.
Anyway she had to have her last one put down from cancer and decided she doesn't want another one, too painful.
About 2 weeks later she was driving along a quiet back road and it was covered in fog in a farming area.
She was driving slowly allowing for the conditions when suddenly in her headlights she spotted a dark shape. She stopped and it was a young rottweiler dog wandering along the road in the middle of nowhere.
She stopped, enticed him to her car and took him home. Did all the usual checks, couldn't find an owner, checked with the local vet, drove to the farms nearby,nothing.
Years later she's still got him and he has the same markings as her last dog.

Lived in a WA regional pub, oldest in town, was told it was haunted, I ended up living there for 6 months, was waiting to find a rental that allowed a cat!
I had the bar keys and awoke at 1am and wanted a snack, so the stairs were normal up to landing then up to 1st floor, so it's pitch black except for the street lights shining into the foyer through double glass doors.
I get down the first stairs to the landing, and I could feel the hairs on my arms prickle, and I heard very faint women's voices which I though were from the street, as I descended the 2nd flight the air was almost electric/static like, I get 3 steps down and the hairs on the back of my neck were really standing up as I walked between 2 non existent women having a conversation, I **** myself and kept going down, there was no one there, I ended up forgetting the snack and opened a bottle of brandy, took 3 nips to calm me down, freaked me out, I ended up going out front door in my undies and around the back to the fire exit stairs!

Asked the owner next day, she said it is/was haunted by 2 sisters, they always argued over the same man, one sister killed the other and threw her body down the well in the wine cellar, then joined a nunnery, they showed the bars CCTV footage to me, and there was a woman standing behind me, she was wagging her finger behind my back...freaked me out, had other strange occurrences happen too, and I wasn't the only one!.......creepy
