Irrefutable Proof That Ghosts Are Haunting the Hotel That Inspired The Shining
Let’s consult this blurry cell phone picture from the Stanley Hotel.
On one night in 1973, Stephen King checked into room 217 of the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado. Sixty-two years before he arrived, a housekeeper in the hotel was struck by lightning in the same room. Opened in 1909, the Stanley Hotel has long been considered one of the most haunted places in the country, and, as King walked through the halls “he encountered some ghostly children wandering the halls and was even said to have witnessed a party in the MacGregor ballroom, attended by some otherworldly guests.” As the Stanley Hotel explains:
“After a century of collecting spirits, the hotel has become renowned by specialists and experts in the field of paranormal investigation as one of the nation’s most active sites. Chief amongst the hotel’s eternal guests are F.O. and Flora Stanley who continue to go about the business of running their beloved establishment as though they were still alive; Flora’s antique Steinway can be heard playing in the dead of night and Mr. Stanley has been captured in photographs surveying the goings-on in the Billiards Room, once his favorite place.”
Of course, like any paranormal activity, there’s very little evidence for any of this.
And the evidence that we do have is hardly convincing. But every once in a while, a picture or video comes along that makes you question your grasp of science and reality. Take a look at the video above. Does that look like evidence of spirits reaching out from beyond the grave? Do the dead walk among us? Is this irrefutable evidence that the soul is everlasting and lingers even after death, searching for a purpose, only to be caught on camera with a panoramic cell phone shot?
It certainly couldn’t be the normal distortion found in every single panoramic shot ever taken. It couldn’t be a blur from a low-quality cell phone photo. Yep. Ghosts exist. Case closed. Move along people.
