48 – Slenderman

August 14, 2017

In 2014, two twelve year old Wisconsin girls believed in monsters. They believed in one, Slenderman, so completely, they decided to kill their friend to prove their worth to Slenderman so they could become his “proxies” and live with him in his woodland mansion. Luckily, their friend survived, despite being stabbed 19 times. Who is Slenderman? And why do some people still believe in him? And what exactly happened the day this girl was stabbed? Find out in a spooky, how-to-create-a-monster edition of Timesuck.

    Thanks for sucking Slenderman. My kids had talked about it/him(don’t assume gender 😏) at length years ago, but it just never made any damned sense. In the digital age how does anyone believe in ANYTHING like this? Team America for the win! Anyhow, keep on sucking, hopefully Slenderman and Bojangles have a Highlander-style battle…I’m rooting for SM…& you’ll have a new head of research. HAIL NIMROD!

      Suckit Fucker.
      Dan love the podcast. Again, you hit this one out of the park. Gotta bust your balls though. You did it again, you referred to anti social when you meant introverted. Tisk, tisk. I thought you were a psychology major (or was it socialology). Anti social meansAntisocial personality disorder (ASPD), also known as sociopathy, is a personality disorder characterized by a long term pattern of disregard for, or violation of, the rights of others. An impoverished moral sense or conscience is often apparent, as well as a history of crime, legal problems, or impulsive and aggressive behavior.
      Love the pod cast. Rave about it to people all the time.
      Keep sucking!

        Also legally speaking, in America, a juvenile offender with dignosed schizophrenia being sentenced to life will happen about the same time as when we start hanging pickpockets in the town square.

    Can’t stop sucking, I think with the origins of vampires, zombies, and slenderman out of the way you should do my personal favorite, werewolves. If you want a perfect topic for this, it would be The Beast of Gécaudan, the creature said to have attacked 200 and killed a hundred of the victims in the 1760’s in France, and there’s a plethora of different theories to its exact nature. Sucks to Sucks!

    Oh Master Sucker, how could you give up the opportunity to say Fools Gold!! I remember when this exploded into such a trend, I had a few friends trying to convince me he was real and I was sitting here thinking “da’fuq is a slendermen?” Thanks so much for doing this topic and shining some light on a photoshop contest gone crazy
