Does chanting bloody mary three times in front of a darkened mirror actually summon a vengeful spirit of a woman? I think not. For one, I doubt that the lighting conditions would matter much. I've tried it on about three different occasions, and my mother even did it with a candle once and nothing happened.

Do you believe in this "Bloody Mary"?

There's already threads about Bloody Mary, but no, I don't believe it at all.

No man, what you have to do is go out and find a crop circle, after you have done that, you must stand in the center of it on a copper plated barstool, while juggling three red water ballons filled with...

Nope I don't believe in it anymore. It's just a fun way to try to scare your friends especially on Halloween. The whole thing is just an interesting myth.

Hell yeah! Here's what you do - get a few drunken mates over, and get one of them agree to do it, citing that 'you have to be alone for it to work'. Then, listen at the door, and burst in just as they're at their most nervous! It's great fun grin2.gif

Back in business!

I do. I'm afraid of her, even dreaming about her scares me. No thanks, but how she came to be is interesting. I heard she was a Ohio woman who's husband killed her children. =/

I always thought that "Bloody Mary" was the name for Mary Queen of Scots whom had a blood lust like no other and therefor was dubbed. "Bloody Mary." because of that. And the urban legend...well...I have no idea where that came from.

[Oh, and MoonPrincess. Love the avi. Sailormoon is awsome. Just wish they hadnt butchered the stories cause it had a lot of homosexual characters Like Zoicite(whom was male)and had the hots for Malachite, and Fisheye(whom was also male).]

That's what I heard at a Ohio site. Though I don't know which story to believe, but I'm leading more to Queen of Scots. =/

[Thanks.]

No need to be afraid of her. She doesn't exist. xD

Well here's a good link to some of the stories behind Bloody Mary. But as to the referrence to her as "Bloody Bones" that is not to be confused with the bogart "Rawhide and Bloody Bones"

Thanks for the link, Little_Nephilm. I'll read parts of it now.

No problem. I can understand about childhood fears. I'm still afraid of ghosts myself. I've always known they exist cause I could feel them around me. And the idea that you cant really kill that which is already dead scares the bejeepers out of me.

That's why I've taken the time to acctually learn as much about them as I can so that I know exactly how to fight one if it decided to become malevolent.

I first heard the story when I was in first grade. I thought that it was mostly a girl thing. Later, I heard the legend again and I was not phased by it then either. It is a fun one to tell  kids about though. Try it on camp outs or slumber parties. It's sure to keep at least one of them up all night!
