I had a very interesting e-mail recently that I thought might intrigue those of you who are interested in the paranormal, especially if you don't yet have plans for Halloween.
Personally I have never been brave enough to dabble too much in what is rather vaguely termed 'the occult'. Ouija boards, whilst they make a great theme for some jewellery pieces I have my eye on, have always made me slightly nervous ever since The Exorcist, a situation not helped by Dan's massive paranoia about all things Oujia.
But I can't deny a certain amount of interest, despite my wimp-ness, and as such I thought that The Ouija Experiment was worth posting about.

All right, all right, I'm hamming it up now. Forgive the bad jokes, please. In all seriousness, there are things in this world and the next that none of us can explain or understand, and meddling with these things without appropriate caution (and sometimes even with) should not be taken lightly, and I implore you to please consider any such action carefully, however fascinating the paranormal may be.
The Oujia Experiment website also states, "This is a real experiment using previously unexplored technology and as such we can give no guarantees regarding consequent results and aftermath. We have taken all neccessary safety precautions but are legally obliged to make users aware that participation is purely at own risk."]
This aside, what IS the Ouija Experiment? Well, at 10pm on Halloween this year, an attempt is being made to contact the dead... via Facebook. Yes, you read that right. Via the internet, The Ouija Experiment aims to create the world's largest ever Ouiji board, with 100,000 participants focusing their collective energy to contact 'the other side'.
This is going to be a live experiment; and my e-mail contact Christine suggests that it could very well work. She says, "We’ve looked at a new theory where electromagnetic fields generated by electrical devices resonate with EMF created by the presence of spirits."
Whether you're an unconvinced sceptic or a curious believer, you can always pop over to the Ouija Experiment site and find out some more about what's going to happen and how it should work. Personally I'm looking forward to the results of this experiment and may muster up the courage to take part myself. But what do you guys think?
