Not quite sure what to make of that one. Once again, TikTok...so...ugh lol. The guy keeps looking into camera so...little 'dramatic'. If my device was 'talking' to me in a 'paranormal' way, think i'd be a tad bit more shocked and suspect despite being just woken up. Plus he has phone or something in his hand as the 'Alexa' is 'talking' to him. Think the last thing i will grab when woken up in middle of night is my phone and actually would be a tad more angry imo.

He really looks like just a regular guy, it is a bit believable. The fact that he is looking into the camera is suspect. Still this is very creepy. We know that ghosts use electronics to communicate sometimes.

When my radio started a slow garbled well, whatever it was doing lol i was looking to get away from the area i was in lol. It was exactly like running a record in super slow mode. I have never heard a radio station do that unless pulling a 'play the record backwards stunt'. Plus did it twice in between song playing perfectly and nothing being noted by station about it.

This reminds me of the "Tesla autopilot radar sees ghosts" story that made the rounds a few years ago. When that was all the rage, I was contacted by a former colleague, a USAF Lt Col, who actually believed the story after seeing "ghosts" on his Tesla radar.

Imo, a Lt. Col. brings something up, it tends to make someone listen. may not be a 'full bird' but still...

I never asked him, hopefully he was smart enough to not bring it up at work. I've known the guy since he worked for me as a 2Lt, he never was the sharpest knife in the drawer.

that describes a LOT of 2Lt's...... (and some Lt. Col's)...lol..... Lt's are always clueless, captains are always angry, generals demanding, col's somewhere in between, now a sgt maj, thats the one you have to watch, meanest, yet funniest and "helpful" (if you are on their good list...lol) guys to have on your side. they actually earned their rank from experience and when they speak base commanders stop and listen.

My knowledge of military is quite limited. I guess as a civilian you have an idea that people of rank should be smarter than average bear lol. I guess that isn't the case lol. I have noticed in what i have read and seen portrayed for Sgt. Major is spot on with Paul's description. Should put them in charge.

in a lot of ways, they ARE the ones in charge.......... Lt's get their rank from the classroom, (and they remain clueless until a bunch of grunts teach them the ropes, and how to survive, just enough for them to then become angry Capt's cause they get stuck in a position (and station) they cant stand and have to put in the time to move up to Major. Majors can be cool, more laid back and experianced, usually happy in their position... until they are forced to become a Colonel in training, (Ltc), running errands and getting coffee for the real Colonels....lol..(back to being angry? or either using that clueless facade they learned so well as Lt's....lol)...then they may get lucky and actually make Colonel, then, who knows what they actually do....lol.... they then fall back on depending on the SGM to actually run the batt's, and covering their butts with the Generals....lol..........(of course this is a generalization and im just speaking of the Army, the Airforce is another game...maybe Duke can say whether its the same over there....lol..... i shouldnt say much about them boys, im Army, and a grunt on top of that, i will probably offend someone, or at least make them cry....hahaha)
