  • ~So what's all this then ?!

Posted 17 January 2013 - 02:59 PM

I came across this today .
http://www.bangkokpo...keep-ghost-away

Ten men in small village,die suddenly .Some in their sleep,some while just walking .All were strong and healthy ,so a widow ghost is suspected .

"A spirit medium hired by the villagers said the "widow ghost", or pee mae mai, also known locally as the lai thai (sudden unexpected death syndrome) spirit, was responsible for their demise."

They claim to have a medical explanation ,but it doesn't seem to be common outside of northern Thailand .
It also doesn't affect anyone but full grown,healthy men .
Your guess is as good as mine .
But I have never heard of this before,so I looked around,and found some background .
Some men even put lipstick or nail polish on  ,so the ghost thinks they are female,as this seems to only happen to men  .Or they leave a male doll outside their home,so the ghost takes the doll instead .

I have never heard of this kind of death,in the USA or Europe .Has anyone ?

http://www.thaizer.c...ts-of-lai-thai/

This article,from 1990,says men died of the same thing ,in Malaysia and Singapore ,as well.
I dont think they have such folklore though .

http://articles.chic...mbarrassed-thai

Thailand has some very creepy ghost folklore ,if no one knows about it. Their magick is also pretty out there .
Thai horror uses many of these concepts .

This is a strange occurrence and I have never heard of it in the US.  I have a few theories on this.  There is some sort of virus that only effects young men, something that is consumed or their unusual practices draws these type of spirits.

Small rural areas have no means. To be honest ,it sounds like poison to me .

It says that some of the men did not show any sign of sickness, in which case obviously many did.

To me it sounds like an outbreak some sort of nasty acute respiratory illness.

2 things to note are that the deaths of elderly and those known to be sick wouldn't have made the news so the illness may not have been confined to young men and there are serious infections (e.g. meningitis) that mainly infect the young and otherwise healthy.

This must be a cultural thing.  In the 90's my roomate from Laos told a similar tale.  Another common haunting over there is the unquiet ghosts of mothers who died in childbirth forever crying out for thier children.

Some airborn illnesses can cause abstract mind condolences. So having the same diseases and it being respiratory does make more sense than a widowed spirit.. even if the airborn illness could be the remnants of an insane condolence mind abstracting widow.

You say get the ghost on video. Theres tens maybe even hundreds of thousands of different mediums of faded images/ and or people... so honestly.. In my skepticism. It defeats the purpose.

An by hire me im always and still am talking bout free. For the people who think im a joke.. People dont see my aspect though i suppose.

In the biblical days, when the Jews were in Egypt,and the 'Passover' occurred,the first born(of every family) were the ones that were to go into the grain houses to get the wheat granted to them in the days of drought etc. What they didn't know was that they were exposed to an airborne fungus that was present in the stored wheat.When the passover occurred,the firstborn were exposed & would have inhaled this toxin & surely would have succumbed to the effects.The blessings  that would have followed,being that the Jewish believers posted the blood of the lamb on their doorposts might have saved many of the Egyptians if they believed. In this story today,maybe these men were victims of something else rather than a supernatural cause & that there is a pattern of behaviour that corresponds to the recent mortality rates.

Like a cultist act... Thats the kind of stuff that tends to not be shared with us due to psychological Safety. Background storys.

Uh.... what?

There is one Google hit for "abstract mind condolence" or "abstract mind condolences", this thread.  What on earth does that phrase mean and what does it have to do with airborne illnesses?

Dear Kainfall! I believe in God,the Power almighty,Maker of Heaven & earth & in Jesus Christ,His only Son, Our Lord,who was conceived by the Holy Ghost,born of the Virgin Mary,suffered under Pontias Pilate,was crucified,dead & buried!On the third day he rose from the dead & ascended into Heaven & sitteth on the right hand of god!
