This New York Supreme Court case’s real name is Stambovsky v. Ackley, but its nickname, “the Ghostbusters ruling,” is way catchier—and way more descriptive. Not to mention accurate, as the most famous part of the decision contains the phrase “as a matter of law, the house is haunted.”

Octopuses, undoubtedly the best creature lurking in the ocean, come in all sorts of shapes and sizes and colors but this one might be gnarliest of them all: it’s a ghost.

I can’t decide what I think this stream of fog looks like more. Is it a waterfall of ghosts diving off a cliff? A river of angels crossing dimensions? A giant snake made of clouds creeping on the Earth? Because the simple explanation of fog trickling down a waterfall isn’t supernatural enough for me. It’s a beautiful…
