Buat yang ga nonton Jimmy Kimmel Live (semacam acara talkshow), dia selama 3 tahun terakhir minta orang tua upload video reaksi anak-anaknya waktu dibohongi permen halloween-nya mereka habiskan.
Reaksinya beberapa ada yang lucu memang. Tapi menurut saya kok agak jahat ya. Rata-rata usia anak-anak tersebut balita dan anak SD, they made the effort to walk around their neighborhood for hours to collect the candies. Kalau dikumpulin harga permennya pasti ga seberapa, yakin deh pasti orang tuanya bisa ngebeliin dua kali lipat lebih banyak. TAPI, itu ga sebanding sama usaha mereka ngetokin pintu rumah tetangga. Bayangin aja rasanya kita udah kerja cape-cape sebulan, udah ngebayangin gaji mau dibeliin sepatu atau tas atau buat tiket liburan. Anggaplah gaji kita terima cash, kita taro amplop disimpan di laci. Pas besoknya kita mau belanjain, tiba-tiba temen kosan bilang “Eh sori duit lo kemaren gua pake ya beli sepatu baru, abis bagus banget deh gua suka,” tanpa bilang bakal ntar gua gantiin or whatsoever.
Menariknya, (terlepas dari reaksi natural anak-anak adalah menangis dan kecewa berat - yang sangat bisa saya pahami kalau direlasikan dengan contoh kasus orang dewasa diatas) dari reaksi anak-anak ini bisa kita lihat mana orang tua yang berhasil membesarkan anaknya dengan baik (salah satu Anak bahkan berkata “It’s okay” tanpa bisa menyembunyikan kekecewaannya dengan menangis) dan mana yang … yah, saya juga ga bisa bilang ga baik. Ayah saya pernah bilang kalau ada fase dimana anak mengidentifikasi & (saya lupa istilahnya?) ‘mengkopi’ perilaku orang tuanya.
Miris melihat anak balita diatas dengan fasihnya bereaksi ‘That bitch!’ with that expression and adults seems find it hilarious. No, sure it’s funny, but then .. well? See the whole video here.
Playing hide-and-seek-alone is quite popular in various parts of Asia. Those who have tried it report that it actually works and that they felt their lives were threatened.
You will need:
A doll with legs. (The doll serves as a place for the spirit to enter, therefore it is advised that you not use a human doll or a doll that you really like because there is a great chance that the spirit will not leave the doll.)
Rice (The spirit that eats this offering is said to grow stronger)
Red thread (This symbolizes blood and acts of restraint)
Something from your body (Fingernails are the most commonly used, but some use their own blood, skin, hair, etc. Don’t use someone else’s body parts or else it becomes a curse.)
Weapon (Something to stab the doll with so that you can anger it. Real knives are dangerous, so most people use pencils or needles.)
Salt water or alcohol (Without this, the game won’t end. This material is used to get rid of the spirit.)
A name (Giving the spirit a name is the most powerful thing a human can give. Names give spirits great power.)
Step 1: Cut the doll and replace its insides with rice.
Step 2: Place something from your body into the doll.
Step 3: Wrap the doll with the red thread thread as if to hinder it.
Step 4: In a bathroom, pour water into a large washbasin and find some place to hide.
Step 5: Place a cup of salt water in the place before starting the game.
Step 1: Start at 3 A.M. because that is the time when spirits are most active
Step 2: Give the doll a name
Step 3: When the clock strikes three, close your eyes and say “First tagger is (doll name)!” three times. (If you’re talking to the doll, you must talk sternly.)
Step 4: Go to the bathroom and place the doll in the washbasin.
Step 5: Turn off all the lights
Step 6: Close your eyes and count to ten. Ready your your weapon and head to the bathroom. Go to the doll and say "I found you (doll name)!" and stab the doll. Afterward, close your eyes again and say "Now (doll name) is it!" three times
Step 7: Place the weapon next to the doll and go to your hiding place. You MUST lock the door as well as all other doors and windows.
Step 8: Drink the salt water, but do not swallow or spit it out. The salt water will protect you from the spirit.
When you want to end the game, take any leftover salt water or alcohol and find the doll. Keep in mind that the doll may not be in the bathroom and there have been instances of it being outside. When you find the doll, Spray the salt water in your mouth on the doll and do the same with the excess water you have left. Close your eyes and shout “I win! I win! I win!” The spirit in the doll will give up and and the game ends. It is advised to dispose of the doll by burning it.
Keep the game under two hours. After two hours, the spirit in the doll will be too strong to be removed.
You must play alone. The more people there are, the higher the chances of someone getting possessed.
Don’t go outside
When hiding, BE SILENT
Turn off all electronics before starting
When running away, DO NOT LOOK BACK. Also, don’t fall asleep while playing. The doll might stab you.
When discovered by the doll, you can get a small wound or even get possessed. If found by the doll, be careful because your weapon will be somewhere on the floor or in your pocket.
After the game is over, it is important to clean up properly. Be sure to put salt in every corner of the house, especially places where you put the doll and where you found it. Salt is said to scare away spirits.
People who have played have reported some of the following events that usually take place while playing:
Nemu website yang produksi tattoo temporer semacam bonus chiki waktu kita masih SD. Pikiran impulsif saya langung pengen pesen, tapi setelah menimbang harganya $5 (plus $2 untuk international shipping) rasanya kemahalan untuk 2 set yang cuma bisa saya pakai dalam 2 kali period (saat lagi ga solat).. Tapi ini vegetable ink sih.. bisa ga ya dibawa solat?
