Apparently, there’s not a whole lot happening up in the town of Gilford, New Hampshire, because the biggest news story coming out of there this week is rooted in this video, which shows a glass falling onto the floor of the Ellacoya Country Store…all by itself!
Store worker Heidi Boyd can be seen in the surveillance tape walking out of frame…just in time for the drinking glass to jump off the checkout counter and shatter to pieces on the ground. There’s nothing suspicious about the timing of her departure, of course.
As WMUR points out in the report, the window behind the counter (out of frame) is sealed shut, making it virtually impossible for someone to have pulled the glass with a string.
I’d argue that people aren’t “thinking fourth dimensionally,” to quote Doctor Emmett L. Brown. I’ve certainly seen enough David Blaine and Criss Angel specials on TV to know that illusions don’t always have an immediately obvious explanation. But the whole haunted ghost theory can be fun too. Those who believe it’s all a hoax for attention should direct themselves to the store’s Facebook page, where Heidi posts the following:
“R YOU KIDDING ME …WE DID NOT MAKE THIS UP PEOPLE. I WAS THE ONLY ONE IN STORE!!!!! COULDNT SLIDE OFF AND LEAVE EVERYTHING UNDER IT UNTOUCHED !!! PEDASTLE HAS 3/4 “RIM AROUND THE PLATE !!! SO EXPLAINE HOW IT COULD SLIDE OFF. UMM CUZ IT DIDNT THATS WHY !!!”
Well, that certainly clears it up. I wasn’t so sure at first, until I saw her use of all-caps and exclamation points for emphasis. She’s GOT to be telling the truth.
Now haunt me with your comments down there…
