Break on Through

In 1997, rock historian Brett Meisner visited Jim Morrison's grave in Paris' Pere Lechaise cemetery and took a photo of himself standing above the singer/boozer/shaman impersonator's rotting corpse. Imagine his surprise when the photograph showed a white blobby thing apparently hovering over the grave. Obviously this had to be Jim Morrison's ghost, as the legendary performer really has nothing better to do in the afterlife than mingle with tourists. But since he's a skeptic, Meisner submitted the photo for professional analysis. Now, the results have been published in "Ghosts Caught on Film 2: Photographs of the Unexplained", which I'm assuming is some kind of peer reviewed scientific journal. According to the analysts, the photo is 100% genuine in that the white blob isn't a result of lightning or image manipulation. And as we all know, not lighting and not outright fraud always equals ghost. Judge for yourself in the video below. And while you're feeling inspired, why not send us your own spooky tale for inclusion in the first annual Amateur Scientist Podcast Halloween Spooktacular? Go here for the rules. And go here for more on this amazing photograph.
