Boalt Hall Ghost Stories

I cannot believe I haven't posted on this topic yet. Right now, the library is haunted by a persistent moaning. Ok, in reality, the air pressure in the main reading room is higher than it is in the rest of the library, so air pushes out on the doors, cracking them open and whistling past them. Why is the pressure higher in the main reading room? [insert gunner joke].

So, I suppose the reading room ghost story is debunked, but has anyone heard any others? Does Dean Prosser still stalk the halls? Does Chief Justice Warrne still occasionally whisper wisdom
to Con Law students? Inquiring minds want to know!

I've definitely heard some strange noises while in room 100. Me and the people sitting in my row could not figure out where the noises (sounded like a machine groaning or something) were coming from. The noises lasted for about 5 minutes and then stopped.

The clock noises are a little disconcerting in an otherwise quiet lecture hall (apparently moving the hands every minute requires quite a bit of mechanical effort).

Peter O'Toole is a walking cadaver. Al Gore said, "bla bla bla ... something ... something bla bla bla." Ellen DeGeneres is trying hard and sometimes scoring. Pan's Labyrinth is getting early nods. Alan Arkin gave a classy thank-you speech.

There is a chirping noise in 100. It is either a cricket or some oblivious soul rocking back and forth in his/her chair. (or a ghost)
