No it doesn't. It slips on the wet high chair table, as it has a little air under it. You obviously haven't ever fed a baby in a high chair. :lol: :lol:

Not very extraordinary evidence.
The job of a skeptic is to investigate the unexplained; not to explain the uninvestigated.

It's an almost empty light-weight plastic container with an unbalanced metal spoon being pressed down into it. In what way is it even conceivably moving "by itself"? :befuddled:

I mean, jeez. In a similar vein, just look at these cars being moved "by themselves!"



Isn't it amazing! Must be angels or something! It's the only plausible explanation! How else could those cars be moving by themselves like that!

The kid was sitting in the high chair and shaking it. That's why it is called the "high chair's table."

Is this really your "best evidence" you ever found after ten years of posting here?
:lol: :lol:

See those two long hairy things that come out of your hips? They are called "legs". Now if Baby's legs are continuously banging againt the high chairs support beam, between both legs, do you think that may make the table shake.

( On a happy note, the evidence is that Gorgeous has never seen a high chair and this means he hasn't bred and his genes will be leaving the gene pool. ) :lol:

No Gorgeous, I feed my baby in a high chair and as my baby kicks its legs his bowl and "sippy cup" move around the high chair's table. That's why many brands of baby bowls have suction cups on the bottom.

You were unaware how baby's sit in high chairs as you never saw one in your entire life.

Gord has it right. The kid is clearly pushing the bowl around with his left hand and the spoon when trying to load it.


Ridiculous attempt to sell a proud parent's om nom nom video as evidence for supernatural powers. :roll:

He sure was talking to someone. There're at least two other people in the room. And are you sure they were even speaking English? And if so, do you know how to get a little critter to eat his fruit and veggies?


BTW, that ghostly other noise was a phone call. Do you know what a telephone is, georgie? And what it does? Or a video. And how taking one works?

I think he was just responding to the cup moving away from him. To be specific, he was talking either to the movement of the cup, or to the cup itself.

I do the same thing. For example, if I put my loose change on the table and a quarter lands on edge and starts to roll away from me, I'll declare "No, mine!" as I try to catch it.

Besides, no self-respecting ghost would show itself so ambiguously.

To me it seemed he was talking to every single savored bite of - what was it? Tangerines? Pudding? Honey?
