I recently heard a podcast where a ghost hunting group said their average “investigation” lasts 4-6 hours. I guess I’m doing it wrong, because mine often take days or weeks. Then again I actually solve the mystery instead of just settling for faint, ambiguous lights and sounds as evidence of anything. The harder you work and the more effort you put in, the more likely you are to find a plausible scientific explanation. If you only put in a few hours of work, no wonder you can’t figure it out. Maybe they’re so skilled they only need a few hours to get stumped…
