You would probably already know by now if your house was haunted. OR WOULD YOU? Mwa ha ha ha ha! How do you know someone didn't die in your house years and years ago? It's a possiblity. And now you can find out, thanks to this super creepy website, DiedInHouse.com. Readers beware! Once you peek inside your house's history, you can't unlearn whatever you discover.
Yes, for just $11.99 you can arm yourself with the kind of information that will ensure you'll never have a peaceful night's sleep in your home ever, ever again until you sell it or move out. Thank you, Internet!
I mean, say you actually sign up for this service, and they find out there was a triple homicide in your very bedroom, or that a wife stabbed her husband with a chef's knife in the bedroom, or that a thief clocked a homeowner over the head with a candlestick? (Is this starting to sound like the game Clue?) Even if someone just peacefully passed away of old age in your home, it could change the way you feel about your house. In a deeply uncomfortable way.
By the way, a seller is not obligated to disclose this information when you buy or rent a house. You actually have to go digging this it. But why would you, unless you already suspect you're being haunted? What was that sound? Did you just hear that? It sounded like someone scraping a window. Did you see that? I thought I saw a face in that mirror. I'm scared! Will you hold my hand? Please?
Oh, haha! That was just a tree branch scraping the window. And that was MY face in the mirror. Man, I really need to brush my hair and take off this Scream mask.
Anyway, maybe you live in a brand-new house so this isn't even a possibility. Except maybe a construction worker had a terrible, suspicious "accident" no one ever told you about. Maybe a rabbit died while your house was being built. See? There's no end to the possibilities. Aren't you so glad someone has put this idea in your head? Don't let it bother you or anything. I'm sure no one died in your house and that weird noise coming from your closet is nothing.
Would you actually want to find out if anyone has ever died in your house or would you rather not know?
