    It's amazing that someone managed to film them together seeing how Princess Di-ed (www) in 1997 and MJ in 2009.

    Still, back in '97, he was just a ghost of his former self...

      Not in the same clips. Do a search of Ghost of Diana/Michael on You Tube. Theres one of her ghost on the balcony behind William and Kate and one of Michael Jackson at his own memorial service.

        Why not go to Vietnam, Cambodia or Nepal? Teach English for a year and while doing that ease yourself into a non teaching job like running a tourism business or exporting raw textiles or some such. All 3 countries are in the wildwest phase similar to what Japan was in during the 50's and 60's when Nichola Koizumi made his money running a black market and some other semi legal businesses. Play your cards right, make the right moves and you can make a go of it.

          I'm waiting till kids come of age (my son is in JHS and living with his mother) and they are independent. Get out of debt and save some money. Cant really do anything major for another 2-3 years. I feel like its shuffling deck chairs on the Titanic in this country.

            Nice! And unlike the recently infamous Italian captain, you've decided to go down with your ship.

                Maybe we should get the frog out of the onsen and set out some karakuchi sake and some dried squid tidbits to propriate the ghosts until we can call in an exorcist.

                        Unless you actually experience these things for yourself its hard to believe these things actually exist. (A few weeks ago I watched a few ghost apparition clips on Youtube, its really up to the individual if they want to believe in the afterlife or not). Im inclined to believe that ghosts will be among us after such a tragedy.
                        Well... it is actually your choice. If you "experience" them, and come to the conclusion, that it this not your own mind fooling you, then you can indeed "go off the deep end" as you say. You may be "inclined to believe that ghosts will be among us after such a tragedy."
                        Sorry, but would it not make much more sense to simply understand that a traumatic catastrophe like that, that may have wiped out every member of family, can shock your mind into a state, where it then might make more sense not to decide what is real and what not, for a while?

                          I do know of one actual case like that, where a friend of my brothers lost his entire family in a plane crash and his sisters were raped and murdered by mercenaries. Call it post traumatic stress disorder but it f--ked it up for years to come. Many people who have been through war zones experience the same thing.

                          Its quite possible people had hallucinations, nightmares as well.
