Peter Venkman: How to Catch a Ghost

Halloween is the one time of the year where ghosts and spirits have a free night to come out and party without getting anyone upset. Even though everyone knows that the ghosts are out there, there is no scientific proof that ghosts exist because no one has ever caught a ghost, except for one man... Dr Peter Venkman.

Peter Venkman Interview

Kidzworld has searched far and wide to find a ghost specialist who claims to have caught more than 1000 ghosts. He is Dr. Peter Venkman and here is our exclusive interview with the doctor about how to catch a ghost.

Kidzworld: What kind of Doctor are you?

  • Dr. Peter Venkman: Parapsychologist

Kidzworld: How does that help you catch ghosts?

  • Dr. Peter Venkman: Parapsychology is the study of the brain into another dimension. Most humans only interpret information with their 5 senses… sight, sound, smell, touch, taste. Parapsychology adds one or two more senses... or three. One of them lets you contact spirits and ghosts.

Kidzworld: So why do you catch ghosts?

  • Dr. Peter Venkman: Haunting is illegal. It is just another form of trespassing and harassment. If ghosts can’t mind their own business, they have to be prepared for the consequences.

Kidzworld: Which is???

  • Dr. Peter Venkman: An eternity in limbo.

Kidzworld: How do you catch a ghost?

  • Dr. Peter Venkman: With a trained 6th sense, proton pack, trap, and ecto-containment system.

Kidzworld: Can you explain how that works?

  • Dr. Peter Venkman: Sure. First you look for signs of a ghost. Unusual sounds, cold drafts, re-organized furniture and household items… etc etc. You know... ghost stuff. Then, like hunting a rabbit, be very, very quiet. When it arrives, you fire the proton stream from the proton pack that polarizes the negatively charged energy of a ghost paralyzing it’s movement. Step on the trap's remote and a force field draws the ghost inside. Make sure your trap is compatible with the ionization rate of the ecto containment system and you’re good to store roughly 500 ghosts per unit.

Kidzworld: Do you have any advice for kids at the Kidzworld site who wish to catch ghosts of make contact with them?

  • Dr. Peter Venkman: Yes. Do not try this at home. A proton pack is nuclear and if used improperly, it can turn your whole town into a barbecue with everyone on the menu. And then I’ll just have another bunch of ghosts on my hands.

Here's my own forum for stories I write. I love writing, but I get kinda lazy sometimes. Expect a slow trickle :P It'll be a mish-mash of short stories I write. Some will be parts of an overall story, similar to chapters, and some will not. I'll try and note what page each part of a story is on and stuff. Now, the first one, that I wrote back in eighth grade. Very random and kind of odd. I didn't write it to be accurate, but to be silly and have fun.  Xp Starts out seeming very morbid, but trust me. It's not actual stuff. Note: It's not my best writing, though. I've improved. *** The dragon destroyed the entire village. Fires burned everywhere. Dead bodies laid on the ground to rot and appease the hunger of animals. Only one person--I mean two--were still standing; Khedra and Sammich. Trembling, Sammich stared at the horrendous beast. Khedra, brushing sand out of her bronzed face, spun, looking for it. "Sammich, where is it?! Tell me now or I'll slap you!" she shouted. "O-over there," Sammich said, pointing. "Where is there?! I CAN'T SEE IT, YOU DERANGED DONKEY!" Khedra yelled. "Open your eyes, woman!" She opened her eyes. Seeing the dragon, she grabbed her curved blades from the sand at her feet. "Don't just stand there, Sammich, fight it!" Khedra exclaimed, right in his ear. "But I don't have a weapon!" Sammich replied. "Because you're not scary!" "You said I'm not scary?!" Sammich bellowed. His English accent made Khedra's cheeks puff up with suppressed laughter. "Don't you laugh at me!" he continued, stomping over to the dragon, who was staring him down as a father does a disobedient son. Sammich grabbed one of the dragon's legs and started yanking on it, without effect. He looked like a savage, screaming his head off in a long battle cry. The dragon snorted, lifted its leg, shook Sammich off, and flew away as Sammich landed with a miniature mushroom cloud of sand and a loud POOF! The dragon clearly believed the young man wasn't worth his time. Chuckling, Khedra sheathed her curved blades while striding to Sammich, lying, frustrated, in the sand. She stuck out a hand, offering help to her friend. Sammich, scowling, with an adorable pout, took her hand and allowed her to pull him up. "We got rid of the dragon, everyone! You can stop hiding, now!" Khedra announced. The villagers disguised as rotting and torn bodies picked themselves up. The mage nearby let the illusion of fire fade from the houses, and stepped out from one of the buildings. "Bye, peoples!" Sammich called, shaking sand out of his tousled, chestnut hair. Khedra and Sammich ran off into the desert, towards the Oasis. *** I'm working on another one, now, so I'll at least post the fragment I have done tomorrow. This one I'm posting tomorrow will be better XD

However, when you become pregnant, you know theres a CHANCE you COULD get pregnant, if you don't want to, use protection. People know the consequences with doing the "dirty", so if you think youre mature enough to do it, you can be mature enough to be a mom. And if you don't think you want to be a mom, theres adoption. Theres too many people who cant have babies for unknown reasons, I think that if you abort a baby, youre just throwing a smack in the face to those who cant have children.
