Cemeteries

Cemeteries, a place where people pay respect for the souls taken away by the death-reaper. I'm not gonna get into spirits, mediums, and ghosts. Instead, I'm gonna write about property.

What do think about living next to a cemetery?
Its no surprise that land value beside cemeteries are all categorized as low-value property. That kind of place has the potential to stir up the resident's imagination and it could possibly make someone go cuukoo. Also, they say that the soil have higher level of contaminates. After all, its a place where they dump dead bodies. So, its understandable that no one wants their private living house to be associated with a cemetery.

Given a choice, no one wants to live next to a cemetary, but would you consider your options if the government give build you a house and give it out for free. Alrite, maybe you'll take the house, but I'm almost certain that you will NEVER stay there. But what if the cemetery is a tombstone cemetery? That type of cemetery where its just tombstones erected everywhere. No dead bodies or whatsoever. Lets be rational, its a peaceful place, its quiet, there are less crime, no ghost will ever linger around there. I'd say its the perfect residential area, provided you are not a psychic or medium by profession.
Question is: Would you mind living right next to a tombstone cemetery?
I'm just wondering cause I've read the smartest argument this week:
Girlfriend: "You can't live there - it is only 1 mile from the graveyard the ghosts will come at night"
Chris: "there is no such thing as ghosts"
(Rookie error - got me nowhere)
Chris: "Ghosts can't travel that far"
(not bad but didn't convince her)
Chris:"Ghosts don't live in the graveyard, they stay where the body died"
(This she accepted without question. Strangely the fact the 40% of my street was destroyed by bombs in WWII didn't lead her to the conclusion that there might be ghosts closer to home)

Definitely NOT near graveyard/cemetery as the surrounding outside the graveyard is the "DIRTIEST"!! coz the ground inside is the most blessed and too "clean" for "anything" to ENTER! Stay inside, it's the safest :P

Hey

I wouldn't really mind living next to a cemetary...dead people or not. The only thing I would have a problem with is the mourning relatives.

it's not the dead people...they're dead so I don't think they will bother me. But the mourning relatives on the other hand...(~.~)" Now that's a nightmare!
