Paranormal Friday the 13th

Show Archive
Date: Friday - July 13, 2012
Host: George Noory
Guests: Kristy Robinett

In the first half, medium, paranormal investigator, and author of Ghosts of Southeast Michigan, Kristy Robinett, discussed the connections of Friday the 13th with hauntings, superstitions and the paranormal. Friday the 13th gets a bad rap, in part, because the number '13' feels odd to people, she said. Then, there is media hype surrounding the number, as well as strange ancient legends about witches gathering with the devil in groups of 13 on Fridays, Robinett added. The bad luck aspect of day has more to do with one's state of mind, she suggested, noting how people pour energy into advancing the notion that it is unlucky. Robinett cited an informal survey she conducted that found about 10% of people are more cautious on a Friday the 13th.

Her first paranormal experience occurred as a young girl, when she was visited by her deceased great-grandmother and told that her grandmother was soon to die. Robinett recalled being punished for sharing this information with her parents, and learning to keep her abilities 'in the closet.' As communication from the other side increased, Robinett said she sought the help of a Lutheran priest, who was astonished when she contacted his secret son and told her to seek the help of a medium. Robinett shared some of her negative paranormal encounters, including an experience living in a house with a demon, and investigating a haunted house where blood came up from the floor and spontaneous fires broke out. Sage smudging can sometimes backfire when cleansing a house, she revealed, adding that an unwelcome entity should be treated like a squatter and ordered out of the house.

During Open Lines, Kim from Omaha, Nebraska, told George about undergoing aggressive brain surgery and having an amazing near death experience on a Friday the 13th. "We looked at that as being a lucky day because my life was saved," she noted. More about Kim's remarkable story can be found at inaflash.org. Jason in San Diego phoned in to share his encounter with what may have been the 'old hag.' According to Jason, his afternoon nap was disturbed by a crushing heaviness on this upper body. "It felt like a pressure or weight right on the top of my chest... and I heard a woman's voice," he said. Steven from Bowling Green, Kentucky, spoke about losing his father and seeing an apparition of him standing at the foot of his bed. Steven revealed that his two sisters had similar sightings, and they were all suspicious of the being appearing before them. "It was a counterfeit type of an entity that was using [my father's] form... to try somehow to manipulate me," he explained.

Video: Robot Almost Human?

Scientists continue to work toward designing a realistic robot which can pass for a human. The FACE robot, developed by researchers from the University of Pisa, can display a range of emotions from happiness to sadness to anger. Software called Hybrid Engine for Facial Expressions Synthesis (HEFES) and a series of 32 motors allow the robot to simulate different human expressions, though not quite well enough to bridge the creepy 'uncanny valley.'
