Slender Man Staring Contest: Shoutout This Week To Destiny

Slender Man Scary Story HalloweenThe shoutout this week is to a reader named Destiny, who wrote in about an encounter with Slender Man:

Dear Anita wirawan,

I recently read your story and It got me thinking if slender man is really real. Well, I was at my grandma’s house and I looked out the window and actually saw him! I found myself staring at him,and he stared back! It was like a staring contest between the both of us!

I said hi to him then blinked. He was gone.

Thanks for your email Destiny. Well I gotta say you are braver than I am, if I ever saw anything like Slender Man I wouldn’t stick around for a staring contest X).

That is a danger of Slender Man stories though, that after reading the stories you’ll start to see Slender Man type stuff in your life at least for a while.

Picture of the haunted Barog Tunnel in India.This week’s shoutout is to a reader in India named Vikrant.

He wrote me this email about trying to visit the Barog Tunnel after reading the story about it:

Hi Anita.

I’m back from Barog but no gain any new experience bcz I’m not reached the old tunnel this time bcz heavy rain in Barog

& station master Mr Dutta suggest me you should not go there bcz this weather is so risky.

Well Vikrant I know that you didn’t reach the Barog Tunnel like you wanted, but how cool that you even went out there! If I ever get a chance to visit India I hope to at least see the Barog area like you did. Anyway, better luck next time.

Keep the emails coming folks I love reading these.
