Haunted Thursday: Part Two





Children and parents who frequent the local playground in Firmat, Argentina began to notice something VERY unusual four months ago. One (just one!) of the swings on the swing set was swinging by itself. It was creepy at first. And then it got worse. According to this article in The Sun (a London newspaper) the swing moves non-stop for ten whole days before it comes to a rest. Then, after a little while has passed, it starts to swing again.

Scientists have no idea what's causing the movement, but they've ruled out the wind, as well as magnetic and electrical fields.

Read the article, and see a video of the phenomenon here.

Oh I'm sorry! I'm really a 45 year old plummer who likes to hang out around teens and authors. I also can turn invisible and like to swing on swings in parks. I hope you do not hold it against me.

I like uncertainty in things like this. Wouldn't it ruin things if they found out why? It'd be a bit like when I heard that King Tut wasn't really murdered. The true story just wasn't as interesting and I wish I didn't know. Not that I'm saying I know there's a logical explanation...

I agree completely, Sharon. I love uncertainty--and I can't stand those people (like the Amazing Randi) who devote their lives to proving that psychic powers don't exist or that Bigfoot is only a hoax! It's one thing if they don't have any imagination, but why do they want to ruin everything for the rest of us?
