Oh, my!

This is very interesting:




Who can tell me exactly what is going on here?

Um, people think the noise on the radio is ghosts talking to them. You betcha.

A radio medium?

Um, neat?

If I was a ghost, that would annoy the bloody hell out of me. No wonder why they said they were busy. They're probably all hanging out in the spirit world making fun of the fact that this guy admits to shopping at Radio Shack.

Sounds about as good as the CB radio band the tried here in the UK in the 70s.

I clearly heard them say "Buy A Ouija Board!".

Everyone here so far seems to get it. In case it's not clear, the person in this video has modified his little Radio Shack radio to automatically and continuously scan up and down the frequency dial, picking up fragments and smatterings of words from various stations as it goes by. He asks a question, and then waits until he hears a transitory word which seems (in his mind) to answer that question. And he thinks he's talking to ghosts.

This is a fine example of a psychological phenomenon known as confirmation bias. He is interpreteing random events to be significant because he wants them to be. The dead (heh) giveaway is the fact that, at times, he has to wait for quite a while before he can discern a sensible answer from amid the jumbled sounds he can hear. It's kinda pathetic, really.
