    I saw some of this. When I was 11 years old, I went back in time. I have only done it one time. I was crying because I didn't get a birthday gift on my birthday in January 31st. I cried in my bed, and then I stopped crying when I started paying attention to a sparkle in my room. I remained staring at it until I was inside of it. When I was inside of it, I was confused to where I was. I was under a bed. And I was not alone. I knew that I didn't belong there. There were four people in the room. Their shoes had belt buckles on them. I could only see from under the bed what I could see. What is most certain though, they were scared. They were two men and two women. They were scared. People knocked down the wooden door, and grabbed them, all four of them. They were outnumbered. I heard them burning. The door was left open, when they were taken away. I saw through the open door, I saw shovels, ghostly shovels digging graves, by themselves.

    The possible reason why Ryan gets more paranormal activity then Shane could be because ghosts are supposedly more interested in those who believe because they are more vulnerable.

    During the Puritan era if you did anything besides work, go to church or read the bible you were considered a witch. Hobbies like dancing or any type of hobby that was not related to Christianity you would be accused of consorting with the devil . Ice soccer would definitely get you burned at the stake. lol

I don't remember much, it was when I was like 6, I just got a cool feather pen which has since broke. if I knew it was haunted then I probably would've refused to go there. Also quick tip to people who want to go there, don't go near halloween it's packed, we had to wait like an hour just to get in.
    Edit: watching this video helped me remember it much better, cool place

    Also, another way they figured out if they were witches or not is, they out blocks on the “witches” feet and threw them in a pond. If they floated up, they were not a witch. If they stayed under they were a witch. No one is gonna float up with cinder blocks on their feet!

    1) Y'all are aware of the modern grouping of religions that consider Witchcraft either the religion itself or a major practice of their religion, right? Witchcraft is absolutely real, it's just not what the Puritans believed it to be.
    2) I live in Salem and used to work as a tour guide. It's weird seeing all the places I know and have talked about extensively in a Buzzfeed video.

    Witch trials were a worldwide problem, it was teribble .. I think that when everything seemed to go wrong,
    people wanted to blame someone or something and this is what they came up with.
    And yes it ended in hysteria I believe .. Witches are real but most of those people are burned innocent
    To be honest most witches are innocent and in a lot of countries those men and women still are not safe :(
