Deaths Of Some Minors Linked To An Evil Suicide Game?

March 28, 2019

Parents are worried as kids nowadays use mobile phones frequently By JOEL CALAMBA ESCOL Filed under Trending News 2nd part of a series A number of minors are reportedly committing suicides after allegedly playing suicidal games on mobile phones. The suspects who created this mobile phone app known as ‘Momo Challenge’ are still at large and the local and international police are also ‘facing a blank wall’ who these culprits really are. Momo Challenge, according to reports, started in Mexico in 2016 and it easily spread all over the world thru the worldwide web otherwise known as the internet. In the Philippines, the death by suicide of an eleven-year-old elementary pupil named John (not his real name), was also linked to the dangerous game called ‘Momo Challenge.” Although there is no enough evidence that would link the kid’s death by suicide, but his mother revealed that prior to his son’s death he was able to check on John’s mobile phone and she learned that her son was exchanging suicidal games with his friends. “During Valentine’s Day, my son has told me that one of his classmates inflicted harm on his body part by slicing his wrist with a sharp object,” his father also told the media in vernacular. One newspaper even called the Momo Challenge an evil suicide game which is reportedly threatening children of killing their family and visiting them at night if they won’t complete a series of dangerous instructions from an anonymous person who identify himself as Momo on mobile phone apps However, many parents believe that Momo Challenge was only a digital hoax involving a creepy doll with bulging eyes ordering children to do self-harm or else Momo will hurt their families. In Argentina, warnings were issued by both the police and schools as this popular WhatsApp challenge has also reached United Kingdom. Law enforcement agencies investigated the reported influence of Momo game involving a 12-year-old in Argentina. This probe even worried many parents of the real dangers it can pose to minors and small children who are now very dependent on mobile phones. This dangerous game was also similar with the “Blue Whale Challenge which also became popular among children’s and gamers in 2017, as it allegedly resulted to the deaths of two American teenagers, including deaths also reported in Brazil, Russia and other countries of the world, including the Philippines.### Source: Erwin Tulfo, CBS            

Who Is Momo and How He Victimized Innocent Kids?

March 25, 2019

'MOMO CHALLENGE' CREATOR HUNTED BY POLICE BY JOEL CALAMBA ESCOL News Feature Filed under TRENDING NEWS First of a series (Editor's note: We will run a series of articles about the 'horrors' of Momo Challenge to inform and educate our parents how important it is to shield our children from the dangers of playing these suicidal games online, as well as to monitor what our kids are doing in internet cafes and on their own mobile phones and tablets.) The controversial Momo Challenge app has allegedly resulted to the deaths of a minor kid in the Philippines and other countries of the world. The very reason that we find it very important to help our parents with minor children to regularly check the activities of their kids in schools and on internet cafes. Watch this video below of Erwin Tulfo's coverage of the recent death of an 11-year school kid who allegedly committed suicide to follow his master's order. Video credit to Erwin Tulfo We feel that it is also our parental obligation, being members of the Fourth State, to also become watchdogs against the proliferation of these online games that threaten the lives of innocent children. I am especially referring to suicidal games such as "Momo Challenge" and "Blue Whale Challenge," as these games already and reportedly  took some lives, not only in the Philippines but in some countries of the world. Although there was no enough evidence yet that points out to these suicidal games as the culprit of this horrible suicides made by minor children in Mexico, Argentina, Philippines and other countries. Why did Momo love to victimize minor kids? 1. Kids, whose age range from 8 years old to 15 years old, are easy prey because they are still innocent children. They can be easily brainwashed in whatever an adult person instills into their innocent minds.  2. They cannot weigh things accurately whether they are wrong or right. 3. Kids would easily believe whatever information feed to them because they are very innocent on almost all information. In short, they are inexperienced individuals and they cannot depend themselves in terms of brainwashing strategies of bad elements. Who is Momo on Momo Challenge app? Momo was actually a creepy doll with bulging eyes created by a Japanese artist named Keusuke Aiso a few year's ago. It was displayed at a gallery in Tokyo, Japan. Aiso named his creation Mother Bird. This creation, according to the artist was inspired from a ghost called "Obume," a Japanese woman who died during childbirth. An unscrupulous psychopath created a gamer's app reportedly on WhatsApp platform and stole this image online, and then used it as an icon for his new app. He named his new creation "Momo Challenge." The challenge includes 50 tasks, in which some of those tasks ordered the kids to self harm, kill their pets and eventually commit suicide.  The local and international organizations are now tracking down the identity of the Momo Challenge creator to stop him from spreading his dangerous suicidal game , as well as the creator of Blue Whale Challenge.    How Momo Challenge can trigger suicide? Participants of Momo Challenge are given 50 tasks to accomplish within 50 days. And these include tasks that kids are ordered to harm themselves. If they don't do the very difficualt tasks like inflicting harm into the kid's own body, or killing their own pets, Momo will threaten the kids that he would kill their parents. The reason that innocent kids could really harm themselves in the process, so that they can advance to the next challenge. Below is an actual video on YouTube. This is very important for the parents to watch so that they will be informed and properly educated how their siblings are lured into doing the tasks, or else members of the family will be harmed by Momo.   Video credit to Vlogger Si Ugok

The Discovery of Giant 'Globsters' Washed Up In Philippine Shores

March 24, 2019

BY JOEL CALAMBA ESCOL Filed under Trending News * Some locals say the beasts washed up in Philippine shores are bad omens * But scientists say they are dead bodies of whales already under state of decomposition People have different reactions to reports of recent discoveries of dead sea creatures washed up in Philippine shores. Many believed this phenomenon was a sign of the second coming while others also believed that these are signs of bad luck. But authorities said these are only speculations of people, especially Filipinos who are used to Philippine traditions and superstitious beliefs. In Dinagat Island, locals were shocked to see a huge sea creature washed up in Cagdianao shore. No one could actually tell what was this sea creature they've seen for the first time. They were stunned on the huge form and creepy white-hairy body of the said sea beast that was washed up for the first in Dinagat Island in Philippine history. The 20-foot long sea monster was approximately 2,000 kilograms A certain Paul Garcia suggested the sea creature found in Dinagat Island was similar to that of another sea beast found in Margate, South Afria on October 25, 1924. The said creature was given the name of Trunko or otherwise known as a Globster. He said it was a half whale half polar bear. Science called these rare species of said sea creatures as Globsters, an unidentified organic mass that usually washed up in any shores around the globe or any body of water or shoreline.   But scientists who saw the images of said sea creature are quick to say that it was actually a 20-feet long whale carcass. It's hairy body, scientists said, may have turned  white because it was already under the state of decomposition. In May of 2017, the same hairy monster was also found in the shores of Mindoro. People felt the terrible smell of the decomposing body as they went near the body of the animal. It was as big as a truck or a giant elephant which puzzled onlookers as to the real identity of the sea monster scaled at an estimate of a 2 meter wide hairy mammal. Vox Krusada, a law enforcement officer told the media that it was more likely the remains of a dead whale. It looks hairy as the body was already under the state of decomposition. The white hair may have been part of the decomposing muscle fibers of the whale. Unless proper authorities have officially identified the sea monster, they are naming it a "globster." Meanwhile, the biggest discovery of a globster was in Indonesia in May of the same year. The rotting sea monster, according to reports measured around 50 feet in length. It was approximately weighing 35 tons (the total weight of four elephants combined). Asrul Tuanakota, the first resident who discovered the dead sea monster during a night time revealed that at first he simply thought it was just a stranded boat. Later, he finally discovered it was an enourmous mammal washed up on the shores of Hulung Beach. Locals who witnessed the discovery thought it was a giant squid. But a certain Marcus Chua from the Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum told the media that there are no records of giant squids in Indonesian waters. In fact, he said it may have been the whale from the Baleen species - a humpback.     Source: allthatsinteresting, Independent, geek livescience
