Probably depends on whether they would be carbon neutral or not?

Nothing wrong whatsoever, but the problem might be the luring bit.

As it happens, I've just opened a business which specializes in this very thing. Now, I can't tell you how exactly it's done (proprietary business secret), but for a very marginal fee, we can attract as many spirits to your home or business as you'd like. We can also get rid of them when you're tired of having them around, or winter comes.

All of our services are electronically verified, of course, and I don't want to brag, but we just did Justin Timberlake's house. He was enthralled!

We take all major credit cards and even PayPal!

I'm yet to be convinced electronic banking isn't a form of paranormal activity. All that spooky invisible money controlled by bits of plastic. It doesn't really exist you know.

Yep, which is fair enough, that was why I recommended John Edwards/his method - is it cold in the studio when he is on stage?

No idea, but he does wear pullovers so maybe that's a clue. On the other hand, somebody could have left the stage door open.

It exists just as much as the disembodied spirits of the dead do, and according to my new business plan, that's a lot.😀

Say, if you'd like to invest a few thousand bucks in a sure thing, I can arrange to take YOUR money. Then you'd see how real it was😀

It could be something a person could measure, the room temp before and after his performance
