Mass hysteria among hundreds of young students participating in the National Rural Youth Service Corps (Narysec) saw them fleeing the 3SAI Army Base and seeking refuge at the Roodepan police station.

If a kid came up to me and said the food had been poisoned I would investigate that.

This part of the article tickled me:

Only days after they arrived for their four-month character-building programme at the military base, the students swopped their beds at the “spooky military base” for the open space outside the Roodepan police station where they slept on Monday night.

I'm pretty sure we can stamp fail on the programme for that one.

"I warn you, whoever you are, oh you who wish to probe the arcanes of nature, if you do not find within yourself that which you seek, neither shall you find it outside.
If you ignore the excellencies of your own house, how do you intend to find other excellencies?
In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."

I believe in the possibility of the paranormal, but I also believe in the power of suggestion.

Could of been something paranormal but it could of been one kid making a suggestion and the others believing it then imaginations going wild.  Plant a seed and watch it grow.

Mass hysteria, indeed. What a mess.

really? Reptilians, new World Order conspiracies, every time anything at all happens someone will pop up to explain how it was the Government that did it to give an excuse to round everyone up into concentration camps or Take Away America's Guns; there doesn't seem to be any shortage of hysteria or credulousness in the "First World".

Life is a hideous business, and from the background behind what we know of it peer daemoniacal hints of truth which make it sometimes a thousandfold more hideous.
