** According to TheOtherWiki, the Saints began play in the same year that the Superdome was designed so they were not yet a losing or a winning team. League rules of the time decidedly did not favor expansion teams, an expansion team of the time would not be expected to become competitive for at least a half-decade. The Saints needed ''two'' decades to get their first winning season, and several more to get their first playoff victory, and another two decades to reach the SuperBowl. By comparison, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who initiated their franchise with an [=NFL=]-record 26-game losing streak, were in contention to reach the SuperBowl in only their fourth season. And, by the way, that Buccaneer losing streak was broken...against the Saints, in the Superdome.

* Lake Shawnee Amusement Park, located in West Virginia, was built on top of a desecrated Indian burial ground which was the site of the Mitchell Clay settler farm in 1783. Three of the Clay children were killed by natives; Mitchell Clay led a group of settlers in retaliation, killing several Indians. In the 1920s, it was purchased and developed into an amusement park. At least six park-goers were killed and the park was abandoned in 1966, with rumours of it being cursed and haunted. Still an AbandonedArea to this day, tours are run in the days before Halloween.

** In another episode, a farm is haunted by the zombiefied family who used to own the place, because a later owner removed the tombstones from the family cemetery and built over it. (Ray says that this "meets all the criteria" for this type of haunting.)

TruthInTelevision to a point: from time to time a real estate developer in America ''will'' actually be chagrined to discover that their brand new subdivision was at one time the cemetery of a local tribe or a forgotten frontier settlement. Its also worth noting that in decades past less scrupulous developers occasionally quietly disposed of such remains in the nearest empty hole, and even the more respectful tended to gather the remains and inter them en-mass in the local public cemetary with little to no effort made to identify them. This trope, however, seems be a case of a SpaceWhaleAesop resulting in positive real world changes: These days the discovery of such sites by GenreSavvy developers not wishing to [[TemptingFate Tempt Fate]] [[note]]or at least not wishing to lose potential home buyers who don't feel like putting their own skepticism to the test...[[/note]] usually results in [[SlaveToPR very public demonstrations]] of utmost respect, proper archeological investigations, and dignified relocation or reinterring of the remains

To appease them, the housemates gives them a muddy patch of dirt in the backyard where the swingset used to be. The spirits wants to honor the land like their ancestors would have wanted; by building a casino on it.
