Things That Make You Go Hmmmm?

Did you ever just wonder about things? Things I want to know is...

Are there Caveman Ghosts? You always here about ghosts in big period dresses or Revolutionary Soldier uniforms. Well Cavemen are all dead, did even one stick around? Hmmmmm?


Whatever happened to Early American style furniture? It was very popular in the 50's and 60's, even Lucy had in in Conn home. Will it ever come back? Hmmmmmmm?

haha, that's a good one, OP. I must say I've never entertained the thought. However, there are even sights of animal ghosts, but none of Neanderthals.

Cavemen didn't have souls because they hadn't been saved by Christ yet. So no.

by Anonymousreply 211/27/2012

Or maybe the cavemen had enough time to figure out they were dead

I think Early American furniture was passed down a few generations and never makes it to the tag sales.

Along the lines of Caveman Ghosts:

Why is that whenever you (either as a joke, for fun, or because you really believe) go to a "past life" psychic, either the psychic or the past lives that he or she says you had are ALWAYS famous people from the past. How many of the six billion of us actually got to be Caesar, Cleopatra, a Russian novelist, a political prisoner, Euclid, Shakespeare, Jefferson et al? Apparently a whole helluva lot!

For people who collect early American antiques, they never go out of style.

As for cavemen, ghosts, souls and the jesus freak at R2, I don't know what to tell you, OP. Well, I do know one thing, if you believe in people having souls being "saved" is certainly not required to have one. I don't know what R2 is on about.

Now R7 will come back and claim that Jesus freaks/republicans/freepers are so crazy that it's impossible to tell a joke from the real thing.

Except it's not impossible. You only need a sense of humor and a modicum of intelligence to recognize a joke post. And it helps not to be mentally ill.

R9, Sarah Jessica Parker's clothing line failed because it wasn't marketed to the right sort of stables.

Let's hope that fake Early American-style furniture never, ever makes a comeback. YUCK!!

If you really and truly want it, haunt donation places, the type that take the stuff others reject.

Sad to think, it IS solid wood and well made, although ugly.

eBay used to be filled with people selling off the Ethan Allen Early American style furniture I supposed was left in their parents house when they died.

My mother had one of these on either side of our couch. The top held a lamp and the bottom part held that week's newspapers on one side of the couch, and on the other side it held magazines. It's an example of 1960s suburban faux Early American furniture

How come we don't see more dead birds? In any given day we must see hundreds. Yet, the only time I see a dead bird is when it is splat on the pavement (usually a pigeon). The only other time is when they die of weird stuff like West Nile virus.

What gives? Are they simply ascended into heaven bodily like Jesus Christ?

What do you mean cavemen's didn't have souls? Where you actually there?

by Anonymousreply 2711/27/2012

do you ever think "wow I'm a descendent of said caveman?" Or "my ancestors were living in huts in the Dark Ages/Middle Ages and must have survived somehow or I wouldn't be here????" I find that kind of freaky to think about. I don't know why. Probably because the odds of surviving to adulthood back then must have been slight. Yet here we are.

There is some place out west that is supposedly haunted by Native Americans.

Why doesn't the US military put intradermal microchips or tiny GPS locators on deploying soldiers? That way we can track and find them if they go MIA. I am sure the CIA could come up with a tracking device no one else would have or be able to intercept except certain military search teams.

Yes, this has "bugged" me for a long time.

Why when we hear about those ghosts that are doing something they did over and over again in life, are none of these people headed to the bathroom? We do this over and over again every day, and thru the night. I'd believe a ghost sighting of a ghost headed down the hall to the bathroom every night before I'd believe a ghost sweeping the stairs.

Well, ghosts are supposed to haunt the place they lived and died at or maybe where they are buried. So you can't look for caveman ghosts in cool spooky 100/200 year old buildings, you would have to spend the night in a cave.

Janeane Garofalo did a funny stand-up bit about ghosts, and thought it was strange that ghosts always seem to be from the Victorian era or sometimes the Old West. She wondered why we never see a ghost from the 1980s with shoulder pads and big, crispy hair.

[quote]I'd believe a ghost sighting of a ghost headed down the hall to the bathroom every night before I'd believe a ghost sweeping the stairs.

Late one night I encountered a ghost in a bathroom in the converted old house where I work. The stall door creaked back and forth by itself fiver or six times. I laughed it off with an unspoken harrumph, "Ghosts! Bah!"

Then I entered the hallway and froze dead in my tracks. My jaw dropped open, the hair on the back of my neck stood up and my blood ran cold as I saw the figure of a broad-shouldered man of medium height running away from me down the hallway. "Who are you?" was my first thought but in a split second I realized, "you're not really there!" The figure ran through a table and made a rounding turn, disappearing into the front hallway. I was rooted to the spot where I stood for a moment. I yelled to my co-worker in another room and when I found her she told me I was white as a sheet.

It was funny how even as it was happening I knew my instinctive reaction to the ghost-sighting was the same cliche you see in the movies or read about in books.

i think ghosts only hang around temporarily, say no more than a thousand years, so that's why there are no cavemen ghosts left.
