Student Group Receives Eerie Messages From Ghost of Former President

Ghost-Adventures-Reseda-4

The night before Halloween, several members of a local student group reported receiving a series of haunting text messages from the ghost of a former president they believed to be gone forever.

Sally Rowe, SoC ’20, received the first messages sometime before 6pm. “I was minding my own business when my phone lit up. It was a text from Gordon,” she recounted. Rowe said she was “shook” at the sudden signal from the Great Beyond. “He’s…he’s been gone for months…I don’t know how this is even possible.”

Emma Cook, WCAS ’19, had a similar experience later in the evening. “He questioned me about my life,” she said, visibly upset. “He seemed content with wherever his spirit is now, so I don’t know why he’s tormenting us.” Cook said the messages started friendly but the spirit grew agitated when she didn’t immediately respond. No physical harm came to her by supernatural means.

There have been stories in the past of students being haunted by former leaders no longer with us. The occurrences often happen in mid- to late-October, with reborn spirits flooding back to campus to attempt connection with those they left behind. Students have generally described the hauntings as friendly, though contact with the unknown leaves them all with anxiety and dread.

“He questioned me about club events that happened weeks ago,” organization president Lewis Danowitz, BSM ’19, said. “I was terrified – how did he even know what I’ve been doing? Has he been watching me? I’m so worried he thinks I’m not doing a good enough job.”

While the encounter has shaken students, they seemed to all appreciate the chance to reconnect with a lost soul. “I think he misses us,” Rowe mentioned. “I just hope someday he can move on and be free.”

Club treasurer Alan Mejia, WCAS ’19, has since been spotted shouting to no one in particular, “Why doesn’t he want to talk to ME?”

    The domestic cat (Felis silvestris catus or Felis catus) is a small, typically furry, carnivorous mammal. They are often called house cats when kept as indoor pets or simply cats when there is no need to distinguish them from other felids and felines. Cats are often valued by humans for companionship and for their ability to hunt vermin. There are more than 70 cat breeds, though different associations proclaim different numbers according to their standards.

    Cats are similar in anatomy to the other felids, with a strong flexible body, quick reflexes, sharp retractable claws, and teeth adapted to killing small prey. Cat senses fit a crepuscular and predatory ecological niche. Cats can hear sounds too faint or too high in frequency for human ears, such as those made by mice and other small animals. They can see in near darkness. Like most other mammals, cats have poorer color vision and a better sense of smell than humans. Cats, despite being solitary hunters, are a social species and cat communication includes the use of a variety of vocalizations (mewing, purring, trilling, hissing, growling, and grunting), as well as cat pheromones and types of cat-specific body language.

    Cats have a high breeding rate. Under controlled breeding, they can be bred and shown as registered pedigree pets, a hobby known as cat fancy. Failure to control the breeding of pet cats by neutering, as well as the abandonment of former household pets, has resulted in large numbers of feral cats worldwide, requiring population control. In certain areas outside cats’ native range, this has contributed, along with habitat destruction and other factors, to the extinction of many bird species. Cats have been known to extirpate a bird species within specific regions and may have contributed to the extinction of isolated island populations. Cats are thought to be primarily responsible for the extinction of 33 species of birds, and the presence of feral and free-ranging cats makes some otherwise suitable locations unsuitable for attempted species reintroduction.

    Since cats were venerated in ancient Egypt, they were commonly believed to have been domesticated there, but there may have been instances of domestication as early as the Neolithic from around 9,500 years ago (7,500 BC). A genetic study in 2007 concluded that all domestic cats are descended from Near Eastern wildcats, having diverged around 8,000 BC in the Middle East. A 2016 study found that leopard cats were undergoing domestication independently in China around 5,500 BC, though this line of partially domesticated cats leaves no trace in the domesticated populations of today. A 2017 study confirmed that domestic cats are descendants of those first domesticated by farmers in the Near East around 9,000 years ago.

    As of a 2007 study, cats are the second most popular pet in the US by number of pets owned, behind freshwater fish. In a 2010 study they were ranked the third most popular pet in the UK, after fish and dogs, with around 8 million being owned.

    My Chemical Romance

    They’re gonna clean up your looks
    With all the lies in the books
    To make a citizen out of you
    Because they sleep with a gun
    And keep an eye on you, son
    So they can watch all the things you do
    Because the drugs never work
    They’re gonna give you a smirk
    ‘Cause they got methods of keepin’ you clean
    They gonna rip up your heads
    Your aspirations to shreds
    Another cog in the murder machine
    They said all
    Teenagers scare
    The living shit out of me
    They could care less
    As long as someone’ll bleed
    So darken your clothes
    Or strike a violent pose
    Maybe they’ll leave you alone
    But not me
    The boys and girls in the clique
    The awful names that they stick
    You’re never gonna fit in much, kid
    But if you’re troubled and hurt
    What you got under your shirt
    Will make them pay for the things that they did
    They said all
    Teenagers scare
    The living shit out of me
    They could care less
    As long as someone’ll bleed
    So darken your clothes
    Or strike a violent pose
    Maybe they’ll leave you alone
    But not me
    Oh yeah
    They said all
    Teenagers scare
    The living shit out of me
    They could care less
    As long as someone’ll bleed
    So darken your clothes
    Or strike a violent pose
    Maybe they’ll leave you alone
    But not me
    All together now
    Teenagers scare
    The living shit out of me
    They could care less
    As long as someone’ll bleed
    So darken your clothes
    Or strike a violent pose
    Maybe they’ll leave you alone
    But not me
    Teenagers scare
    The living shit out of me
    They could care less
    As long as someone’ll bleed
    So darken your clothes
    Or strike a violent pose
    Maybe they’ll leave you alone
    But not me
