I got a new toy in the mail. It's a parabolic microphone. Have you ever heard of these?
They are built for spying on people. Yet you are warned not to use them for anything illegal.
Have you ever looked at the spy equipment out there for anyone to buy? It's kind of scary what they have. Which in turn is really scary to think about the things out there that we don't even know about.
However, I did not get my Parabolic Microphone to spy on anyone or listen to them talking two houses down.
Nope, I got mine for ghost hunting. OK, stop laughing! I really did.
I saw this being used on one of the many ghost hunting shows out there. They say it can pick up things a normal human ear can't. Like ghosts talking to you. Or EVP as they call it.
EVP means Electronic Voice Phenomena. You hear them talking about EVP's all the time on Ghost Hunters and the other ghost shows.
One June 27th my sister, Maureen and I are going on another ghost hunt so I thought this would be a fun thing to take along.
You can hook it up to a recorder so you listen to everything again later and see what it was you thought you heard.
I don't know if this will really work or not but it sure would be fun if it did.
I tried it out at home and let me tell you...you do hear things that you normally wouldn't be able to. I was able to hear my sister, on the other side of the house, breathing. No, she is not one of those people who breathe loud or with her mouth open either. She was just being normal and even when I stood next to her I couldn't hear her. But, when I had the parabolic microphone on I could hear her from the other room.
So, who knows? Maybe I'll catch a ghost one day talking to me. If not, heck I can always listen to my neighbors two doors down. LOL
