Sorry to snap at you like that, but yeah, that's why me and the friend who didn't go crazy kept going back into the building. We were both insanely curious afterwards, but we froze up in that moment and just wanted to get the **** out.

i've got another story (this one happened to my brother)

asia has been known to be incredibly haunted, with some of the most aggressive ghosts in the world. when my family first moved to singapore, we were walking around town and my brother accidentally stepped on a pile of fruit. we thought nothing of it at the time, but we later learned this was an offering for the hungry ghost festival. we have never proven that the following occurrences were caused by this, but it was the best thing we could come up with.

there was nothing very intense about my brother's haunting, but it was obvious. my brother was a metalhead and always kept his radio on that station, but would wake up with the radio on the classical station. the volume would fluctuate all the time and anytime he would have friends over they felt like someone was watching them. also, his room was freezing cold...and we lived in the tropics with the windows open (airconditioning is expensive there).

my brother resorted to changing rooms with my sister (without telling her of the supposed haunting) just to get it to stop. for a couple months, nothing happened, but then the same things started up again. the same happened after moving back to the US. now, however, he is used to it and actually tells it to stop messing with his radio...and it listens, strangely.

The word "fruit" caught me by suprise I thought you were going to say "and my brother accidentally stepped on a pile of ____"

That would make a horrible Hungry Ghost Festival. Imagine the surprise when the ghosts come out expecting fruit, perhaps all revved up for some mangos this year or even a star-fruit or two, and find a big pile of shit.

Somebody would get their ass haunted all kind of nasty.

I can't say I've ever experienced anything which I'd seriously attribute to ghosts.

Though there was this time when I was playing some PS1 as a kid with my neighbour and after finishing, we turned off the TV and left the room. We returned to get some food, sat down at the table and heard these weird noises every now and again. It seriously freaked us out and we began to think it was ghost related... I grabbed a knife and did a lap of the house to check for intruders. Only later did we realise it was the Playstation drive occasionally scanning for a CD. We'd left it on despite turning the tv off.

I've had some pretty weird experiences but couldn't say if they were surely ghosts or not. I do believe in them! I don't see how they're all that irrational. It's not like they're some evanescent creatures that haunt old, forgotten houses. It's either just repeating events due to their traumatic nature or a spirit of a dead person that are no different then we are. Once you get into demons and people getting scratched and cut, then I don't know. That stuff is craziness. Oh and I thought this was pretty interesting :
