Ouija Boards and the occult


Yikes! Last weekend I saw The Excorism of Emily Rose, and was literity freaked out. *Warning Movie Spoilers follow* When the priest mentioned to the lawyer the "witching hour" was 3 a.m.--which is meant to mock the "holy trinity hour" that is at 3 p.m. (when Christ died and was resurrected) I was in disbelief. I know it's only a movie (however it was based on a real events), but it got me thinking about the supernatural and such. The movie also made an emphases on dark forces and evil happenings. Dark forces? Well I was bored so I googled the following: "witching hour", "holy trinity hour", "supernatural forces", "excorisms", and somehow landed on a message board that mentioned something called a ouija board.For those who do not know what a ouija board is, let me clarify. A Ouija board is used in divination and spiritualism. The board usually has the letters of the alphabet inscribed on it, along with words such as 'yes,' 'no,' 'good-bye' and 'maybe.' A planchette (a slidable 3-legged device) or pointer of some sort is manipulated by those using the board. The users ask the board a question and together or one of them singly moves the pointer or the board until a letter is "selected" by the pointer. The selections "spell" out an answer to the question asked.

Some have concluded the user(s) are guided by sprits of the beyond. They can either be good or evil spirits. Some say lighting a white candle and saying a protection prayer, will help to attract "good spirits". On this message board a user mentioned there is a online ouija board over at the witchboard . And I guess there are rules to play by some of the rules are:
  • Never play alone!
  • Never let the spirits count down through the numbers or go through the alphabet as they can get out of the board this way.
  • If the planchette goes to the four corners of the board it means that you have contacted an evil spirit.
  • If the planchette falls from a Ouija board, a spirit will get loose.
  • If the planchette repeatedly makes a figure eight, it means that an evil spirit is in control of the board.
  • If you should get an evil spirit, quickly turn the planchette upside down and use it that way.
  • The board must be "closed" properly or evil spirits will remain behind to haunt the operator.
  • Never use the Ouija when you are ill or in a weakened condition since this may make you vulnerable to possession.
  • The spirit of the Ouija board creates "wins" for the user, causing him to become more and more dependent on the board. Addiction follows. This is called "progressive entrapment."
  • Evil spirits contacted through the Ouija board will try to win your confidence with false flattery and lies.
  • Always be respectful and never upset the spirits.
  • Never use the Ouija in a graveyard or place where a terrible death has occurred or you will bring forth malevolent entities.
  • Witchboards are so named because witches use them to summon demons.
  • The very first Ouija boards were made from the wood of coffins. A coffin nail in the center of the planchette window served as the pointer.
  • Sometimes an evil spirit can permanently "inhabit" a board. When this happens, no other spirits will be able to use it.
  • When using a glass as a message indicator, you must always cleanse it first by holding it over a burning candle.
  • Ouija boards that are disposed of improperly, come back to haunt the owner.
  • A Ouija Board will scream if you try to burn it. People who hear the scream have less than thirty-six hours to live. There is only one proper way to dispose of it: break the board into seven pieces, sprinkle it with Holy Water then bury it.
  • If you must use a Ouija board, make your own. Arrange the letters and numbers, into a circle so whatever is trapped within that circle can't escape.
  • If you place a pure silver coin on the board, no evil spirits will be able to come through.
  • NEVER leave the planchette on the board if you aren't using it.
  • Lecherous spirits from the Ouija board will sometimes ask young women to do rather . . . ah, odd things.
Three things NOT to ask
  • Never ask about God.
  • Never ask when you are going to die.
  • Never ask where the gold is buried.

Do I believe the ouija board can summon spirits from the beyond. I don't know, but I'm afraid to use it. Maybe you can summon the spirits or just maybe there is a scientific explanation for the moving of the planchette. Based upon some of the experiences some has described including my own mother, I think I'll just pass. I'll just stick with horoscopes and tarot cards for now.

The Bitch Club


I was serving my mandatory sentence on blogexplosion.com (the surfing for credits and all). And happened to view this particular blog. I have to admit I was awestruck--nodding my head in agreement on each of these rules. I even lol at some. To give a better understanding what it means to become part of the oh so exclusive club that is called "The Bitch Club", here is the following entry criteria to join:

1) We have carefully chosen the word, "Club". That means, exclusive. That means, only the finest of the fine, the baddest of the bad, and the smartest of the smart get to play. Why is that? Because we can't be having people who would break the ring's rules climb on board and make it all stanky skanky for the rest of us.

Man! Damn it I thought I would be a shoe-in! Not to sure now, seeing how I'm not too smart.

2) If you want to join the ring, just shoot an email off to us and we'll check out your log. It'll help if you've already checked out other sites on the webring, including of course, ours. It'll give you an idea of what we're looking for. We will let you know if you're approved. If you already KNOW one of the fine Bitches on the ring, just let us know and we'll let you beyond the velvet rope. After all, it's all about WHO you know, right?


Hmmm...I think I will, even if I don't get excepted, I will always have fond memories of the time I applied at "The Bitch Club" lol.


3) N E 1 wh0 TyPeS lIkE tHiS 0r sez tehy R 1337 HaXx0r is teh ghey and CaN't PlAy wif deez fyne BiTcHeS, fo shizzle.


Bwhahahahahhaha, yeah 'fo sure. Check, but I do tend to have bad grammar and spelling :P


4) There are some things, blinky graphics and animated tags and .gifs and .jpgs, that are just stupid. If you're not sure if yours are stupid or not, chances are they ARE stupid.


Amen! Alert! Alert! If you aren't too keen on this, then don't visit MySpace.com. That site is just litered with visual headaches. Check...wait...I have some pics on my site, but for posting purposes.


5) If your site gives us a headache, keep on walking. There are colors, and then there are COLORS. Please, have mercy.


Come-on admit you like fluorescent colors blinking 75 times a second that may induce seizures. Check. I don't have crazy assed colors on my site.


6) If your site plays music, especially if it is happy teddybear dance music, if you have pictures of counted cross stitch or rainbows and fluffy bunnies, you may want to reconsider the moniker, "Bitch".And the Bitches say, you must give us a way to turn the tunes off. Ever had the crap scared out of you by sudden loud music out of a website? This is not negotiable.


"...happy teddybear dance music..." LMFAO!! Yeah especially when you have earphones on, that shit can make you go deaf. The combination of excessive images plus videos/music tends to make load times a lot longer, and not to mention it freezes my browser. Check.


7) "Bitch" doesn't mean rude, crude, or disgusting. But, we won't turn you away for a little cussing every now and again. Bitchiness comes from your soul--bare it all. Be honest, shoot straight, and be who you are. Bitch Club welcomes the forceful Bitch in all of us. Independent women who know what they want and how to get it, and aren't afraid to talk about it, is what this ring is all about.


Check.

8) Have a blog. Duh.


Check lol.


9) Keep the code on your site. Even Bitches have guidelines. Make sure your code
is on the site that you tell us it's on, or our automatic link-checker won't find you and it'll kick you off. We're busy Bitches, and we don't have a lot of time to be manually checking for links if your stupid ass can't put stuff in the right place.


Check.

10) No porn, pr0n, cam, naughtycam, naughty cam, dirty cam, boobie pics, naughty
bits, artistic erotic photography, voting, selling, disgusting dirty camwhore crap. Bitches are self-respecting.


Check, but I wouldn't mind seeing it.

11) Rule #10 does not mean your blog has to be "family-friendly".

Check. If I had to rate my blog it would be PG-13.

12) If you aren't 18 yet, you don't have the Bitchitude to join. Come see us after your birthday.

Check. Six years past that (thank god).

13) True Bitches always have something to say. Bitches ain't boring. Try to keep
your site updated at least once a week, or the rest of us might make you look lazy. Vacations are understood though. Just let us know so we can put you in the queue.


Check. I update quite regularly, and I try not to be boring.


14) These rules can be updated and changed whenever we'd like, because it's our Club, and we are Bitches, and we are forceful, independent women. Be one of us. You know you want to.


Damn straight I want to be one. I aspire to be the baddest of them bitches!

-Rachel WebBitch Extraordinaire


Bitch Extraordinaire you are lol (that was a complement).


So cross your eyes, fingers, legs, toes and anything else that will help get into this club lol. No seriously though, it is interesting I find it hilarious.

**Damn it! Cannot get this post to format properly in Internet Explorer. And I have edited it for like the 100th time! Why do I care if it views properly in Internet Explorer you ask? Well as a courtesy to my 2 viewers who use the cursed Microsoft bastard child. Please cross over to the dark side and use Mozilla FireFox, the world will be a better place for all :P **

Hurricane Katrina

I'm deviating from my usual posting subjects for this post. I was going to post yet another stupid site that makes me laugh. But after watching the news I was not in the mood. You guessed it, I was watching the media coverage about Hurricane Katrina and the aftermath. Such heartbreak and devastation, kind of puts my own problems in perspective. Most lost EVERYTHING, including family and friends.

I couldn't find any banners or buttons for donations for the victims of Hurricane Katrina. So I created my own:



If anyone would like to use it to promote donations for the victims of hurricane Katrina, you are most welcome to. Link the button to the following address:

Only Beautiful People Allowed!

Remember in high school where exclusive groups and clubs only allowed the popular, attractive, and jocks? While the rest of us were left out in the cold, cursing and despising their very existence (ok maybe just me). Well get ready for the high school version 2.0, because a new online community which came about a few months ago, wishes to ONLY grant membership to the "beautiful people".

Here is a snippet on the approving criteria:
"The decision to allow you to enter our exclusive club lies with our members; who are given the chance to rate all new applications during a three day rating process. The majority vote is final.

We are proud to be the first online community in which existing members decide whether or not a new applicant should be accepted through our revolutionary rating technology. Once you have uploaded your profile, you will be rated by existing members of the opposite sex over a three day period. They will judge whether your picture and profile are deemed attractive enough to grant you coveted access.
"
Three days?! Three days to decide if you are attractive enough?! What do they take out a microscope and make sure your organelles are attractive too? Blah...Whatever if you're still curious I would check out the pixs. Some try too damn hard to fit in over there.

This site wasn't so bad until I couldn't view it with my Mozilla firefox browser. Apparently it wasn't as beautiful as Internet Explorer LOL.

the Phat Phree

This website had me in stitches for hours (ok not literally, more like 30 minutes). This site publishes prize wining articles like Look at my striped shirt , Iran Nears development of the F-Bomb, and my personal favorite Key to city stolen. If these articles sound fake, stupid and outrageously retarded, there is a reason--most if not all are made-up with a twist of reality thrown in.

If you do visit this site make sure to check out the special sections on the NBA and MLB. Those were a riot.

Free online storage

Streamload is offering 10GB worth of free online storage. Kind of comes in handy if you forget your storage medium and need to save a file thats bigger than 10MB. Or if you need extra storage space and cannot afford an extra harddrive.

Stupid Sites Unleashed!

Readers submit a stupid or crazy site to create a listing of stupid and crazy sites.

Itchy and Scratchy except cuter


Ever watch the Simpsons and wish itchy and scratchy was an actual animated series? Well look no further, Happy Tree Friends provides the same level of cartoon violence and laughs as Itchy and Scratchy but much cuter characters.

Dog Condems


Wow the title speaks for itself!




<---- And look it's meat scented too, Yum!

Bubble wrap

Ahh who can resist the ever so addicting bubble wrap, because you can't just pop one. You must pop ALL!!! Who cares if you don't have bubble wrap, because now you can cyber pop. Yes this site has a online bubble wrap where you can continuously pop your little heart out. Just don't do this at work, you might become to engaged and forget about your job duties and as a result--get fired. Don't say I didn't warn you.

Photoshop alternative

I'm all about the free--software that is. Don't have Photoshop? Can't afford it, well try GIMP, it is a open-source photoshop alternative. You have full functionality of Photoshop without the price tag. Try it out.

Silly animation that makes no sense

Another brilliant piece of work hosted on your favorite moronic site Ebaums World. This particular piece is about a jubilant singing hippo and his friends the pig, monkey and of course his faithful bird. The subject of this song? Noodles of course, the hippo has noodles on his back. Why? I have no freakin clue, but it makes for a catchy song.
