The Ghost of Alexander the Great
"International spirit medium" Stephen Hermann claims he contacted the ghost of Alexander the Great during a recent seance. Alex's message: He urges the people of Macedonia to stop fighting and embrace peace. Surprisingly, he had nothing to say about that atrocious Oliver Stone movie about his life. [Balkan Insight]
And I guess he speaks English now, instead of ancient Greek (which nobody now would understand anyway). I suppose time hangs heavy when you're dead, so you might as well learn a foreign language...Posted by Robert G. in Mercer Island, WA on Tue Apr 14, 2009 at 01:27 PM
Alexander The Great and I speak regularly, and he said he liked the Oliver Stone film. The Director's Cut, mind you. Personally, I think he has a thing for Angelina Jolie. And Jared Leto. I can say no more. Long live JambiPosted by Hairy Houdini on Tue Apr 14, 2009 at 03:35 PM
I wonder if he mentioned anything about how much he enjoyed being buried in Australia?Posted by Accipiter on Tue Apr 14, 2009 at 04:37 PM
Maybe Alexander the Great hasn't kept up with recent changes in our political geography, but modern Macedonia has practically no overlap with the ancient kingdom of Macedon from which he hailed. It'd be like the ghost of William "Braveheart" Wallace telling the people of Northern Ireland to pack it in, very commendable, but relevant how?Posted by David B. on Wed Apr 15, 2009 at 12:29 PM
When you're dead maybe you don't have time to keep up with geo-political progression. Having said that, if that were the case I'd doubt you'd have time to talk to a medium either...Posted by Renquist in Glasgow, Scotland on Wed Apr 15, 2009 at 01:50 PM
