No, I do not believe we are the one species out of the billions upon billions that exist or have ever existed to have privilege... or punishment, however you choose to look at it, of immortality.

"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. It doesn't happen, what does happen is you get results. Lifting Barbie weights does nothing but waste time.

I don't believe in actual ghosts, but I've certainly had some strange experiences or coincidences that make me believe that there could be energy in our atmosphere which we can't or don't know how to tap -- or maybe we have lost the ability to tap this energy -- a sixth sense. I base my opinion on things that are impossible to explain (like how the pyramids were built, and random instances of genius).

Keep a sense of humor. Remember, laughing burns calories too!

Definitely!!!!!!!! I've had a few things happen around here that have been a bit freaky having my name called out when I'm home alone, my hubby has been feeling taps on his shoulder and someone calling his name and onetime out in the backyard he was doing yard work and he heard a womens voice say it's mom ( my mom had passed away about 2 months earlier and she loved my garden) so yes I do believe.............

My family lived with a "Wallwalker" for many years until we moved. A shadow of a person walking across our dining room wall, into the living room then up the stairs into one of the bedrooms. We ( me, daughter, son. Husband says he never saw it) would see it nearly everyday, and kind of missed it on days we didn't. Since we lived in the country, someone walking around outside would not have been likely and never shoe imprints around the house in rain or snow. We thought/checked out of every possible explaination but never found any. It was our friendly ghost we shared a home with.

I believe in something along those lines. I lived in a haunted house.

The lady that lived there before us held séances and played with Ouija Boards. She opened doors and couldn't close them. We got the brunt of that.

No, I don't believe in ghosts. But, for some reason, ghost stories/movies can still scare me or give me nightmares. I've also got this habit of keeping my feet under the covers at night--when I was little, I was convinced that, if my feet were exposed, something might grab them during the night (maybe something bad, like a ghost or monster, that lived under my bed...). I still feel a little antsy or won't sleep well if my feet are exposed during the night. Makes me feel a little silly when I think about it, LOL.

I've never seen a ghost, but I believe that places can be haunted, if that makes sense. There are plenty of creepy places I won't go at night. Maybe there are spirits with unfinished business that stay in places, make weird noises, move things around? I don't know.

I believe in a lot of the "odd" things because I think it is pretty narrow to think that only the things we can see are real. If you believe in God, you can't see Him but believe anyway so why can't ghosts or aliens exist even though we can't see them? I think just about anything is possible and I like thinking there are mysteries out there.

I don't believe in ghosts....
but I know some intelligent people who truly believe in spirits from the dead being able to communicate with the living...and they pay good money to a psychic to do it. They absolutely believe the 'psychic' because the psychic came back with information that "they couldn't possibly have known". Try telling them that their body and face language lets the psychic know when they are on the right track and they will continue wanting to believe. .
What's up with that.

You knew this question was going to be asked sooner or later this time of year. Do you believe in Ghosts, or hauntings? I do believe in such things. I believe people can leave their happy, sad, or violent impressions on places, and haunt them.
