TM 166: Do you believe in ghosts?

Say what/Smoke's better than air
My sister likes to channel old dead guys from Atlantis. There's a reason for that: my sister takes after our father, by which I mean she's batshit crazy.

I don't disbelieve in ghosts. But I believe in what I see, and ghosts would be one of the few things I haven't run into yet, except in the sense that every so often MI13 gets sent out to look into some weird haunted thing which inevitably turns out to be, I don't know, aliens or mutants with a grudge or whatever the flavor of the week is.

I don't believe in much of anything, when you get right down to it. I've seen a lot of strange things, half of them being people I work with; I've flown into Fairyland/England's collective subconscious on a helicopter, and there's this dragon from outer space who talks like a Cockney and thinks stealing my cigarettes is a great gag. Not a lot of belief involved there, just experience. Result of working for the Department of Really Weird Shit. So for me, ghosts are in the same category as God and heaven: I'll believe in it when I see it.

You honestly and truly haven't come across any ghosts? That's kind of shocking, Pete.

What's shocking about it? Don't tell me you have. Really, don't tell me. Aliens and fairies, all right, but I like to think there are some monsters under the bed that really are just the stuff of crap horror flicks, not real life. Too optimistic?

Just a bit too optimistic there, yeah. Wishful thinking.
