Famous Poltergeists

The Jaboticabal Poltergeist is the most brutal poltergeist in Brazillian history. In 1965 a poltergeist began its onslaught on an 11 year-old girl named Maria Jose Ferreira which involve stones appearing in the air and being thrown, furniture being thrown, Maria receiving many cuts bites, and scratches, and needles appearing in her skin (Alan Boyle). Yet, more of an odd tale is a poltergeist in Stoke Lacy, a small town in England. Here, a woman died in a car crash in the 1930's while fighting over the steering wheel (Alan Boyle). Her spirit wished to inflict the same fate upon others, but had promised not to hurt anyone (Alan Boyle). So, what this poltergeist does, is simply throws motorists into a fence, completely unharmed (Alan Boyle).

Poltergeists are said to be noisy, harrasing ghosts (Benjamin Radford). They typically only do small disturbances like making loud noises, throwing small objects around a room, pulling sheets and pillows off beds, and throwing stones at people (Benjamin Radford).

It is thougt that poltergeists occur when children "generate poltergeist activity by channelling energy into the quantum mechanical vacuum" (Zeeya Merali). Teenagers can also attract some poltergeist activity, due to the change in electron activity around the brain that can cause disturbances in the nearby area (Zeeya Merali).
