In 2004, after a paranormal experience he won't discuess, Roto-Rooter plumber Jason Hawes created the Syfy channel show Ghost Hunters. Who knows what dark, evil mass inspired him, but now—like an aged carny handing down his tricks—the clean-domed spook chaser is training new recruits in Ghost Hunters Academy. It's not an easy job. There's a reason it's not called Ghost Catchers.
Hang on. There are a couple more tips that really help if you want to see ghosts:
1. Be delusional.
2. Get thwacked out of your mind on hallucinogens.
3. Make sure you're a plumber who wants a reality show and are willing to make a complete idiot out of yourself to get it.
