At Least One in Five People Say They've Lived in a Haunted House?

There are a LOT of haunted houses in this country. And I don't mean the haunted houses people go to this time of year with fog machines and people dressed up as werewolves or whatever. I mean ACTUAL haunted houses. According to a new survey, one out of three men and one out of five women say they've lived in a haunted house at some point in their lives. And the majority of them say they didn't know the place was haunted when they moved in.

But . . . 15% of people would be cool with moving into a haunted house, if it meant it cost less than a non-haunted one.

The survey also found the top three signs that make people think their house is haunted . . .

1. Strange noises, 54%.

2. Getting an odd feeling in certain rooms, 45%.

3. And their pets start acting weird, 34%.

A Building Is Evacuated Over a Suspicious Package . . . Which Turns Out to Be a Journey Cassette

After last week, obviously NO ONE'S going to take a chance with a suspicious package. So let's hope those situations all turn out like THIS.

The Duke Energy Building in Charlotte, North Carolina was evacuated yesterday morning after someone inside found a, quote, "small manila envelope handwritten and addressed from out-of-state," according to the police report.

The entire block was cleared out and the bomb squad came in.

But fortunately, it wasn't a bomb. No, it was . . . a JOURNEY cassette tape. I suppose that IS a suspicious package, but suspicious because, you know, why is someone mailing a Journey cassette in 2018?

There's no word which Journey album it was, or why someone sent it.
