Al is one of the most famous heads of the mafia, and most gangster movies have been based on his life story. Al is one of the more recent ghosts that can be seen in Alcatraz prison in San Francisco. When he was there he took up playing the banjo. Nowadays, it’s been reported that his banjo can be heard playing his ghostly sad songs.

#7 – Michael Jackson

Here we have 100% proof that Michael Jackson has returned to earth as a ghost. You can see his spectral form caught on camera, moonwalking across the hallway of his former Neverland home, in a style that is clearly his own and definitely not just the shadow of someone in the film crew. Also, this story must be true because Larry King featured it on his show. And they play creepy music in the YouTube clip. And Michael once had a song called Thriller.

Becket, King Edward the 5th, many ghost soldiers and tons of ravens hang out at the Tower… it’s a an all night ghost party!

Ouija Board and the Ideomotor Response (Source: Wikipedia) Following its commercial introduction by businessman Elijah Bond on July 1, 1890, the Ouija board was regarded as a parlor game unrelated to the occult until American Spiritualist Pearl Curran popularized its use as a divining tool during World War I. Spiritualists believed that the dead were able to contact the living and reportedly used a talking board very similar to a modern Ouija board at their camps in Ohio in 1886 to ostensibly enable faster communication with spirits. Paranormal and supernatural beliefs associated with Ouija have been harshly criticized by the scientific community, since they are characterized as pseudoscience. The action of the board can be parsimoniously explained by unconscious movements of those controlling the pointer, a psychophysiological phenomenon known as the ideomotor effect Ideomotor phenomenon is a psychological phenomenon wherein a subject makes motions unconsciously. The phrase is most commonly used in reference to the process whereby a thought or mental image brings about a seemingly "reflexive" or automatic muscular reaction, often of minuscule degree, and potentially outside of the awareness of the subject. As in reflexive responses to pain, the body sometimes reacts reflexively with an ideomotor effect to ideas alone without the person consciously deciding to take action. The effects of automatic writing, dowsing, facilitated communication, and Ouija boards have been attributed to the phenomenon. Mystics have often attributed these effects to paranormal or supernatural force. Many subjects are unconvinced that their actions are originating solely from within themselves. Scientific tests by the English scientist Michael Faraday, Manchester surgeon James Braid, the French chemist Michel Eugène Chevreul, and the American psychologists William James and Ray Hyman have demonstrated that many phenomena attributed to spiritual or paranormal forces, or to mysterious "energies," are actually due to ideomotor action. Furthermore, these tests demonstrate that "honest, intelligent people can unconsciously engage in muscular activity that is consistent with their expectations".[9] They also show that suggestions that can guide behavior can be given by subtle clues (Hyman 1977).
