Ouija board sparks hysteria at school in Peru

A group of around 30 students was left terrified after a Ouija board session at their school went horribly wrong.
According to reports, the incident occurred after a teacher's daughter at San Jode de Saramuro boarding school in Peru's Loreto region brought a Ouija board and a book of black magic in to class.

After she managed to convince her fellow students to participate, the situation soon deteriorated in to mass hysteria with at least one student ending up convulsing and screaming on the floor.
When a teacher arrived to see what was going on, they found several of the students lying on the ground - many of them incoherent and suffering from spasms.

The incident prompted panicked parents to take their children to local evangelical churches believing that they had become possessed by whatever had been summoned during the session.

The school ended up being closed for a week but has since been reopened.

Yeah I didn't like the new one either, wasn't remotely good IMO. Having said that I don't want to derail the thread so I think I'll leave it at that

Yes, indeed. Therein lies the dilemma; perpetuating a false or self-defeating belief. The belief becomes a filter to how we perceive events and ultimately how we react to those activating events. Further, we typically seek reinforcement of our beliefs, so the dissolution of a self-defeating belief can be a courageous act of self-reflection.

I agree. I was  just thinking how odd all these mass hysteria cases are. I mean i find it hard to believe its normal for an entire group to fall into hysteria. Why does it always involve ouigie boards and spirits and school children? Why doesnt anything like this happen during shootings when groups of people are hysterical? I think theres something more too it.

Not really its kind of blatant that people only acknowledge what they  choose to. I saw a story of emts rushing into a horrible scene. An old lady was standing out face hanging open after a horrible accident and several paramedics ran right by her looking for the victim before the leader asked them what the hell they were doing. Turns out her appearance was so gruesomely unrealistic that each one walked right by because thier brains didnt acknowledge her as a real presence. Funny how it works because that wouldnt happen to everyone. Kind of the same reason other people dont notice things outsi... [More]

Perfect deion of what's happening in our politics today.  Immaturity in adults could be the end of us.
