    Most of these are well-vetted and before the age of photoshop. View at your own risk!

    There was photo manipulation before photoshop. There was also pareidolia.

    There were also ghosts before photoshop too. Hence the photos..

    Well, since you just said in your latest thread that ghosts can be indistinguishable from ordinary humans, any photo of a person is potentially a ghost photo!

    Only if the person was dead when the photo was taken.

    Certainly, but as you agreed, there is no way to tell, right?

    It's like in The Sixth Sense: if you die and nobody tells you, there's no way for you to know!

    Indeed, by your logic, we all must be ghosts!

    Dammit... is that why I can't seem to lose this weight? I can't imagine a dead body has a very good metabolic rate!

    No genius. There are tell-tale signs a person might be a ghost. Are they wearing outdated clothes? Do they suddenly appear and then disappear? Are they someone who is known to have died? Do they NOT make noise when they walk? (See Kittamaru for details on that one.) Simple stuff like that. This ain't rocket science..

    Well then, clearly these people might all be ghosts:

    And since people who died recently would wear today's clothing, then any person you see in a picture or meet might be a ghost as well!
    Dunno - but not suddenly appearing or disappearing wouldn't preclude one from being a ghost. After all, that last garbage thread you posted was about a still photo. No appearing/disappearing visible in it.
    I don't know and neither do you. Nor do you know if they are known not to have died. Again: any person you see in pictures or in person is a potential ghost based on the criteria you gave in your previous garbage thread.
    No one makes noise in a still photo and a person walking in socks makes no noise. Again: anyone you meet or see in a picture is a potential ghost by your nonsense criteria.

    Really? Are they people we know have died? Did they appear or disappear shortly after this photo was taken? Did you forget the list already?

    Not if they appear and disappear or are people we know have died or make no noise as they walk.

    Oh so now where talking about photos instead of real persons? Sounds like you're moving the goalposts just as you always do.

    Yes..we'd know someone was a ghost if we knew they had died. There's no way you can deny that.

    Ah but then if they're dressed in out of date clothing, appear and disappear, and are someone who has died, we know they're a ghost. All the other criteria still apply. So you don't need to hear them walking.

    I don't know the answer to those questions and neither do you -- so you must accept that they may be ghosts.
    We have always been talking about real people in photos. That's what you've been posting here for a long time. I just added the real people you see on the street because you are moving the goalposts forward with your ridiculously all-inclusive criteria.
    You're reading what I said backwards. I said if you don't know that they had died, you could assume they were a ghost. Just like with the people in my photo and the woman in your photo in the other thread.
    None of those criteria apply to any of the still photos you've posted, except possibly the first, which as I've shown, is meaningless.

    *snrk* Beautiful Russ... simply beautiful. A shame he won't understand the point behind what you are saying (that his reasoning is flawed)... still, great posts for the comic relief alone!

    I am not disagreeing with you, but I wear out of date clothes. I have little fashion sense and even less spending money. I suddenly appear and disappear.

    I take pride in walking noiselessly. I've always admired the hobbits and never wear anything but soft-shoes like moccassins. I can sneak up on stray cats! Not that I try to. They just don't hear me coming.

    And oh!, I guess I mustn't be a ghost though because I know next to no rocket science.

    Do you love mushrooms?

    I've walked up on foxes, which scared them more than me. I walked up on a black bear once, too, and that scared us both.

    Yes. And I've snuck up on mushrooms too. I'm rather a fun guy.
