Who would you haunt?

Asked by Aethelwine (42969points) February 28th, 2009 from iPhone

Let’s say you become a ghost when you die. Who would you haunt?

Would it be a person? A location.?

Why did you choose this person/place? What would you do?

Do you have a message that you would like to send?

I don’t want to be stuck on the earthly plane.

I’d haunt…........ you? Can’t really think of anyone I’d want to terrorize.

Then, clearly, it would be my duty to haunt AstroChuck. He can’t expect to get away scott free with all those bad quips.

i probably wouldn’t haunt anyone.
it’s bad karma.
not only would it mean being stuck on this planet longer than desired, but it would also mean being mean to people and scaring the living daylights out of them. though, admittedly, it would be rather enjoyable.

if i really had to choose, i guess it would just be a close friend who i’d mess with for a while and finally let them in on the joke.

How about the ex? He deserves it for all the crap he put me thru when we were married and all the crap afterwards. He’s a spineless weasel so it would be fun to watch him squirm.

I’d haunt the library. Yes, definitely the library.

kwhull's avatar

Yeah, the library! Then you could be like Slimer in Ghostbusters II, that would be cool!

anyone who annoyed me while i was alive and scare the crap out of them.

I’d the people who influenced the most number of living (ie heads of state) and scare the shit out of em everytime they decided to do anything Machiavellian.

Why does haunting have to be bad? I have a friend whose life was saved by the ghost haunting her. She was carrying a bunch of stuff up the stairs and tripped. as she was falling, something guided her hand to the railing. I’d like to haunt someone like that. :)

That being said, I think I would haunt my cousin, provided I die before him. He makes so many stupid decisions that I’m sure he’s going to die decades before me, but if I die before him, then maybe I can do stuff like hide his liquor and pills.

@Sueanne_Tremendous Ooo, not me, It would mean hanging around him too much.

evelyns_pet_zebra's avatar

pretty much everyone I despised in life. I bet I’d be spending a little time chasing down some flutherites, just for fun. Not many, but you know who you are. And if you don’t know, well, won’t you be surprised. insert evil laughter here

I would haunt UW Madison. Great campus that blew a couple generations of art education. Unfortunately mine was one.

I promised my sister that I would haunt her if I die first. If she ever hears a disembodied voice say, “Up your ass!” she’ll know it’s me.

Likewise, if I ever hear a disembodied voice say, “Penis!” I’ll know it’s my sister! :D

Sorry to break it to you but you won’t “hunt” when you die, you’ll either go to heaven or hell forever, depending if you put your trust on Christ in this earthly life.
All those “ghosts” you hear about are really 1/3 fallen angels (demonic spirits) cast away from heaven with Lucifer, now they work to deceive all that there’s no sin no heaven and no hell.
Just a warning to all!

DrasticDreamer's avatar

@seVen I don’t plan on hunting when I die. I wouldn’t enjoy killing animals now and I know I won’t enjoy it dead, either…

Bri_L's avatar

@DrasticDreamer answers like this are why I have a “fluther crush” on you. You rock!

DrasticDreamer's avatar

@Bri_L Thank you! Hehe. :)

KatawaGrey's avatar

@seVen: But there is no sin and no heaven and no hell. Didn’t you get the memo?

Bri_L's avatar

@seVen – this is pretend. Like when you were a child and you pretended you were something else.

evelyns_pet_zebra's avatar

I have the perfect bumper sticker for ya, seVen, it says: If you can read this, you weren’t raptured.

And really, isn’t hunting and haunting sort of the same thing? Rather than using a bow or a gun, you frighten your prey to death.

I wouldn’t haunt anyone.. I’d like to be a happy loving ghost looking over my family, babies, loved ones, and friends…

partyrock's avatar

Or, maybe I’ll pop up once in a while to scare a good friend :) but all for laughs, nothing creepy!
