Not a good idea?

I guess I'm just curious because my bf isn't the sharpest tool in the shed and he want's a recorder to try an catch EVP's. His only knowledge of the paranormal comes from Ghost Hunters. He's low on common sense and I'm just afraid he'd be asking for trouble. Heck he even wants a ouji board?!
I told him no! That he shouldn't mess with things he doesn't understand.
Am I right on this?

Caution and a healthy respect for others is always the tool of a wise investigator, you can record but don't bring it in right away, spend some time tell your housemates about yourself and then introduce the recorder explaining that its only so you can hear and understand what they say
Ai-yah! No...smack him in the head for thinking about a Ouji

I don't see any problems with using a recorder to see what's there. I don't think it will be a means of inviting anyone new to the party, so to speak.

What you most likely got is an anomaly from the recorder because you aren't using quality eguipment That is what half the guys on TV get too! So then you run it through a computer, further corrupting it and making it say what you want it too. Just like the TV ghost hunters!
And you think how great a job I did, just like the guys on TV!
Above is exactly how NOT to do a ghost investigation. Truth is most actual investigations result in no EVPs, no pictures, nothing. When you get to this point, you have done it like the REAL investigators do. Most of us have spent countless hours getting nothing. True paranormal events are rare, but if you're seriuos you keep trying anyway. And once in a while you get real sucess, not a false positive. Not meaning to discourage you, just telling it like it is.
