Gas Station Ghost-Bug

Last week on The Skeptics’ Guide to the Universe, we dissected a news story about a supposed “ghost” that was caught on a gas station security camera. Proving beyond a reasonable doubt that we have the raddest listeners ever, “markav28” on the SGU forum just posted this fantastic YouTube video. His rational explanation is so well-thought out, I’m nearly convinced that it wasn’t an undead ancient plastic Indian insect after all! Enjoy.

Oh, and while I’m on the subject of the SGU, I can’t believe I forgot to say:

Happy (belated) Birthday to Mike, who runs! Thanks for all you’ve done for the show, Mike — you’re a truly kick-ass skeptical warrior.
