Toma Sota Balcu

The latest craze sweeping through LiveJournal, Xanga, and other blogging communities involves people posting this message on their blogs:

A girl died in 1933 by a homicidal murderer. He buried her in the ground when she was still alive. The murdered chanted, "Toma sota balcu" as he buried her. Now that you have read the chant, you will meet this little girl. In the middle of the night she will be on your ceiling. She will suffocate you like she was suffocated. If you post this, she will not bother you. Your kindness will be rewarded.

It obviously seems to be inspired by the movie The Ring. Other than that I don't know much about this (such as who started it, etc.), though I do know that I'm now safe.

Well, I found this anagram: A CASUAL MOB TOT

Which makes me think that I'm going to be killed by a well-dressed baby who 'runs a restaurant, and that's all'. Which is only slightly more disturbing than the original version.

But I guess I'm safe; I posted this on my livejournal. Mleh! Mleh, I say!

the word "Toma" means "it takes" in Spanish, if that means anything at all. The other words dont show up in any other language, commonly anyways. Sota is a Japanese name, but thats it. I couldnt find Balcu anywhere. Perhaps this will help in your search a bit.

there are a series of anagrams, all of which could be the name of the originator and their location:

tom sabo at UCLA
Tom Baso at UCLA
etc.

think it over, or she will kill you.

Why does this sound like something that would be pulled out of The Ring vs The Grudge?

Well, considering I've seen it on the top of every page and you lot have posted it again at least half a dozen times, am I going to get a cricket team of evil demon girls turning up tonight?

Do they crawl across the ceiling or what? If they crawl, I don't think they'll fit on my ceiling. They may have to take turns at killing me. Will they form a line or will they wander out and get a drink from the fridge while another one is killing me? If so, could I get them to drink the flat lemonade at the back of the fridge and leave my juice alone?

Enquiring minds want to know!

Ben, I think they work by an appointment system if ceiling space is limited.

So, is there supposed to be a time limit as to when this girl gets here, or did she get stuck in traffic, or what?

I've been waiting WEEKS to get a picture of her to post here...

tongue wink

while yes this thing would seem that it would be from the ring or the grudge i actually remember getting this thing before either of those movies came out, maybe someone who saw ringu created it? all i know is that this was before those movies and that it is a piece of junk, i never saw her

I feel foolish too, but as someone else said, better safe than sorry!

We are all so easily influenced by things that make us afraid... And gouvernments take advantage of that in order to grab power more firmly... Overcome your fears, I show the example by not pasting this message!

Love over Fear!

Wow. The amount of times I've read this since Jan 11, 2005, and not posted it somewhere, I should be dead several times over...

I guess I won't die... it's just in case though... seriously, I want to die of old age or something like that.
