Exactly. A lot more has been made on a lot less and unless one has experienced the wind 'pull' in those tunnels it looks like the wind is blowing first in one direction than in another and it looks 'unreal'. Or maybe it's a ghost?

I just thought it was interesting. I have no proof of 'real' paranormal activity or I'd claim Randi's million:D:

So are you saying that you think it's a paranormal thing?

Maybe it is, who knows? The reason I posted it was it really grabbed my attention when I watched the video - I found it ...compelling. Or are only 'real' (or provable) paranormal things allowed to be posted? I'm confused, but then I'm new here so bound to make a few mistakes.

As someone who has been on the tube a lot I would say that its pretty obvious that it was the train pulling through that caused the pushchair to move

Which is what I wrote. But not every body lives in a city with such a transit system and if one didn't know, it's a strange video.
And you never know, it  *could* still be a spirit of bad will. I've been in many subway systems and never seen anything pulled onto the tracks:eek:

Honestly though, I'm getting a bit in the way of a Ghostbusters vibe here. You know, with the runaway baby carriage and all. Maybe Vigo is looking for a new host.

Fast things moving past you create a low pressure area that wants to reach equilibrium. Boats sinking, fast cars driving past, subway carriages, strong winds in narrow spaces. I've run into very few people who aren't in some way familiar with Bernoulli's Principle even if they don't know what the name for it is.

So yes, it could be an evil spirit. About the same chances that my refrigerator is powered by frost dragons.

Then the best person(s) to fit the bill would be Old Cutty Soames ( a pram could look like a soam in a pinch). AND...it's underground!

Yes, I've felt that in the skytrain tunnels here.

So , you went with the frost dragon fridge, eh? I couldn't afford that line and got the Yuki Onna model. Hate that gust of frigid air every time I open the door and that horrible wailing sound it makes at night.
