Section 12 Group 2

Sorry this is late guys. In class we discussed the legitimacy of ghosts and spirits. Then we tried having a few floaters. We also discussed our confusion about the change in what Dr. Oliver said about what was needed to be excused from a final report. It was nice having another person from a different group come and collaborate with us & get a freest perspective on things. See you Monday!
