Dark Matter No.3: Are You Afraid of Ouija Boards?

Let's get one thing straight - the ouija board is a game. A toy. An object made by people over 100 years ago, yanked into the 21st Century by the same type of charlatans who brought about its existence. I own 5 now, including a wood burned one that I made by hand, and a 1919 William Fuld board which adorns my fireplace mantle year round. I even have a planchette tattooed on my right arm. The tattoo was painful, but I feel fine with the artwork on me.

Have I used them in all seriousness? Yes, including my handmade one; it was brought to the Shaker Heritage Society and used by myself and two men who fully believe they're psychic. However, both of those men are also narcissists.

Guess who the planchette moved for? It wasn't me.

Did I believe I was ever in any sort of danger while using the ouija board? No, in my opinion, I was in no more danger than I have been, was, or will be at any point on any other investigation. Tools are tools to me, as is intent.

Watch the vlog and see.
