Memes, 🤖, and Mana: MISTERY MISTERI ANGKERNYA JAM 12 MALANM Banyak sudah cerita-cerita seram yang muncul pada jam 12 malam. Jam 12 malam identik dengan jam munculnya para makhluk halus Pendapat seperti itu mungkin muncul karena malam adalah kegelapan, di saat langit menghitam dan semua menjadi bayang-bayang sehingga orang beranggapan setan akan muncul pada saat tersebut. Tetapi sebenarnya malam merupakan tempat sugesti semesta, apalagi tepat pukul 12 malam. Ini adalah saat bergantinya hari. Dimana jam menunjukkan pada titik 0 dan ini waktu yang tepat untuk mengsugesti manusia. Konon kabarnya, ketika waktu pada titik 0 maka emosi manusia pun pada titik nol. Jika emosi manuisa pada titik nol 0 sugesti apa pun akan mudah masuk pada pribadi seseorang. Maka dari itu para orang pintar (dukun) atau para penyihir akan meniupkan kutukan atau mantranua selepas tengah malam. . Tak hanya dukun dan penyihir, setan-setan pun akan lebih senang jika bekerja di malam hari karena manusia lebih mudah diperdaya. Meskipun pada dasarnya setan itu akan muncul kapan saja dan di mana saja. Mereka tidak mengenal waktu ketika menggoda manusia. . Hanya malam adalah waktu tepat untuk menjerumuskan manusia pada jurang kenistaan yang paling dalam. Keadaan malam yang sepi membuat para dukun-penyihir dan setan lebih mudah berkonsentrasi pada misinya. Pada saat kita tertidur maka aura yang kita keluarkan cenderung lebih natural, tidak terpengaruh aura siapa pun sehingga aura dunia cenderung lebih tenang dan tidak kacau. . Karena itu malam menjadi pilihan para setan untuk menjalankan kejahatan. Aura yang netral menyebakan mereka lebih leluasa untuk menggoda manusia. Maka dari itu ada sebuah kepercayaan, jika orang biasa tidur lewat dari jam dua belas malam maka dia akan sulit terkena pengaruh sihir, baik santet atau pelet. Karena jiwanya masih sadar ketika waktu menunjukan titik nol. Bagaimana menurut kalian yang hobi begadang?

Barbie, Memes, and Rosie: Kisah Boneka Barbie yang Jadi Pembongkar Kasus Pembunuhan Rumit Seorang Gadis 6 Tahun HUMANDoD Rosie Tapia, gadis 6 tahun dari Salt Lake City, Amerika Serikat, menjadi korban pembunuhan pada 1995. Sayangnya, pembunuhan tersebut cukup rumit dan belum terungkap hingga kini. Namun, pada minggu ini, polisi kembali mencoba mengungkap pembunuhan tersebut tepat pada ulang tahun Rosie ke-30, seperti diwartakan Daily Mirror pada Rabu (23-1-2019). Dan satu-satunya petunjuk tersisa yang bisa digunakan untuk mengungkap kasus pembunuhan ini adalah sebuah boneka Barbie. Ibu anak sekolah itu, Lewine Tapia, mengatakan boneka itu ada di antara beberapa barang yang tersisa di kuburan putrinya. Sekarang, Koalisi Kasus Dingin Utah mengatakan, dua orang penyelidik yang terhubung dengan kasus tersebut, diduga memiliki fiksasi dengan boneka Barbie. Mainan itu dibawa pulang oleh Lewine, ia menjelaskan bahwa, benda itu bisa menjadi barang yang sangat berarti. Menurut tes DNA, boneka ini sedang diselidiki dari mana asalnya. Salah satu pendiri koalisi yang menyelidiki kasus ini, Karra Porter menjelaskan, "jika ada seseorang yang datang kesana mengetahui siapa yang meninggalkannya disana, mungkin informasi akan diterima. Bahkan mungkin, kami bisa menghemat sumber daya untuk menyelidiki kasus ini," terangnya. Meski demikian, ibunya, Lewine sendiri mengatakan tidak yakin bahwa investigasi ini akan membuahkan hasil. Dia hanya mengatakan bahwa, "Saya berharap Tuhan membiarkan saya hidup sampai kita menemukan orang yang membunuh putri saya." Rosie diculik dari rumahnya pada dini hari 13 Agustus 1995, dan secara brutal mengalami pelecehan seksual. Tubuhnya ditemukan di sebuah kanal beberapa jam kemudian. Tetapi, tidak ada yang pernah dihukum karena pembunuhan yang mengerikan itu belum berhasil terungkap. Satu-satunya benda yang mungkin bisa mengungkap pembunuhan itu hanyalah boneka Barbie yang secara misterius ditinggalkan di kuburannya. Sumber: intisari-online.com

Beautiful, Complex, and God: sartorialadventure: cestriankiwi: josef-tribbiani: bigwordsandsharpedges: The native Maori people of New Zealand have tattooed their faces for centuries. They had a complex warrior culture before the arrival of Europeans, and suffered under early colonialism, but have experienced a cultural revival since the 60′s.  The marks are called moko, and are etched with chisels instead of needles to leave grooves along with the ink. The true form is sacred, unique to each person, and distinct from European tattoos that mimic that traditional style. There arent many pictures non combat related that look this badass Actually most Tā moko are done with modern tattoo equipment these days, but some people get them done the traditional way. And, as others have said, they’re not for Non- Māori, as they have specific meanings and significance. If you want a tattoo with Māori style, you can get a kirituhi. These avoid any designs associated with particular tribes or famous people you’re not related to. Kirituhi is a Māori style tattoo either made by a non-Māori tattooer, or made for a non-Māori wearer. Kirituhi has mana of it’s own and is a design telling the unique story of the wearer in the visual language of Māori art and design. Kiri means ‘skin’, and tuhi means ‘to write, draw, record, adorn or decorate with painting’.Kirituhi is not restricted to only Māori people, and it is a way for Māori to share our cultural arts with people from around the world in a respectful manner, and for non-Māori artists to enjoy our beautiful art form as well. I happily do kirituhi for my clients around the world and it is a privilege to do such work for them.Kirituhi is no lesser an artform than moko, however it is different and I believe these differences must be acknowledged and respected, so that the integrity of our taonga Māori – moko, is maintained around the world. Moko is uniquely Māori and it is strictly reserved to be done by Māori, for Māori.If either the recipient or tattooer do not have Māori whakapapa, then the resulting design is a Māori Style tattoo or kirituhi, NOT moko. The word moko originated from the Māori atua (god) of volcanic activity and earthquakes, Rūaumoko – therefore the origin of tā moko is divine and sacred – to me this is no small thing, nor should it be dismissed. As my mentor once told me, ‘moko is about 99% culture, and 1% tattoo’. (source)
