If i was to lock you in a room with the infamous real life "Annabelle" doll while it's inside it's case, and you had to spend five freaking hours in there with the doll, with the lights off. Would you do it? I'm only asking because I'm bored, and this entire forum is in jest, so I felt like having a bit fun with this. Besides, I'm curious to see what some you will say to this challenge.
Edit: To be fair though, I would allow you to have a flashlight in the room while your stuck in there, but that's about it.
Would these atheists know they would be stuck in there for only five hours? If not, they would probably rip up the infamous "Annabelle" doll in utter agony and desperation.
They might still do the same thing even if they did know it was only for five hours.
...and to avoid sounding racist against either atheists or theists (?): Anyone would.
By the way, my bet this is a NO GO. If someone answers your question I loose. If not I win.
Good grief, I must be bored.
Oh I wouldn't be that cruel. I would obviously tell them that it would only be for five hours, but the lights would be off the whole time. However, I would give them a flashlight, a chair, and a radio if they wanted to keep them entertained while being locked in that room. Of course what they do in that room is their own business.
And you're on. What are the stakes of this wager missy?
What is an "Annabelle" doll? A prop from a horror flick? And considering the room is dark, do I get a bed for a little snooze?
the infamous "Annabelle" is based on a true story allegedly about some demonic spirit attaching itself to an old raggedy anne doll. the doll is currently being kept by paranormal experts, the warren couple, who has the doll tucked away in their basement inside a glass case with a holy cross over it. They claim that once a month they get a priest to bless the room to keep the doll at bay. I'm not saying you have to believe in that stuff, but I'm just telling you how the story was explained to me when I looked it up.
Annabelle was recently featured in that James Wan horror film that was also allegedly based on a true story, "The Conjuring", which had a spin off film this year called "Annabelle", where it explains the doll's origins allegedly.
As far as the bed goes, eh sure. Why not. I'll even throw in a pillow and blanket for you too if you like, since I'm such a nice guy. Would that work for ya?
...anything for a peaceful nap! The doll's presence, (with or without a cross on top of it) wouldn't bother him a bit, I would gather… right wilderness?
BTW I loose. I'll pay you a virtual dollar... Alright, Steve!?
Deal! It was a pleasure doing business with you.
ditto A good laugh is almost as good as a good rain during a drought!
- and imagining wilderness sleeping peacefully with a Raggedy Ann doll… extra pillow and all...priceless.
Well, it almost works. The bed is fine, the doll is fine (it can even have the other pillow). The only kicker is that weird character outside the door with the key. I think I'd better have some good friends out there with watches to verify that the door opens in 5 hours.
You will, of course, wake me after the time limit? Wouldn't want to overstay my welcome there...
*edit* And you may NOT take pictures of me sleeping with a dolly! I do have my masculinity to protect, after all!
Don't worry, there won't be any pictures, and sure. In fact, I was just going to watch TV for five hours while you were in there anyway, so your masculine image will be protected. You can even have friends help time exactly how long you'll be in the damn room. So we have a deal?
That leaves the matter of value. How does $100 per hour sound, with a penalty of $100 per minute over 5 hours?
(I do expect compensation for my oh so valuable time, you know. It will keep me away from HP forums for 5 whole hours - an eternity!)
Paypal is preferred...While Ms. Hill can spend hers, no one takes them around here. It's kind of "virtual", too...
If I agree to this, then would you agree on the condition that if the doll tries to kill you and you try to leave the room before the five hours are up for any reason, then you forfeit all the money that I'm supposed to pay you?
I'm tougher than a dolly, especially a raggedy one. Sure.
I don't know wilderness. I heard the last guy that made fun of the doll, while visiting the Warren's haunted museum inside their basement, ended up dead a little bit later in a motorcycle accident. Although that might've been a coincidence, but that hasn't stopped people from speculating the doll's alleged powers.
However, I'm game. Just remember if you try to leave the room, or if your friends try to help you get out of there before the five hours are up, then you forfeit the money.
OK. Deal. But I've gotta run to town - the chainsaw needs a new spark plug and I need to cut up some...uh...wood. Yeah, wood. Firewood, you know? Visitors coming over tonight - gotta fix the chainsaw.
Uh... why don't they just remove the doll from their house?
According to the Warren's official website, they kept the doll locked up because of how dangerous it is allegedly. In fact, there was even accounts of one priest that called Annabelle a stupid doll that couldn't hurt anyone, and that priest ended up in a car accident on the way home after saying that. The same goes for some teenager and his girlfriend that saw the doll on display in the Warren's museum. The guy basically taunted the doll saying that if it was really attached to some demon that scratches and hurts people, then he challenged it to scratch him to prove the stories were true. The couple had a good laugh about it, and the Warrens asked them to leave.
On their ride home, they were laughing about how stupid they thought the doll was, and they ended up in a motorcycle accident. The girl survived, but she was in the hospital for about a year. The boyfriend however died on impact, as they ran into a tree.
If they took the doll out of it's case, then there's no telling what that doll might do because it's said to be one of the most powerful haunted dolls in the world right now. Therefore if you removed the doll from that house, then where would you put it?
You can read more about it on their official site if you like. I already read it. Although I'm not quite sure I believe it or not ,but I certainly wouldn't want to mess with it. If anything, I would probably want to stay as far away from that doll as humanly possible.
Here's the link to their site that tells the full story behind the doll:
What about leaving it in the case, in the basement and burning the house down?
I submitted the story to snopes. I love snopes.
I honestly don't know. You'd have to ask the Warren couple about that one, as I don't know if that would work or not. Although I'm not an expert on paranormal activities, but I have seen quite a few horror films in my time. And based on those, it seems like whenever you get rid of a demonic entity that it never truly goes away. It just goes somewhere else. Like in some exorcism films, the priest that performs the ritual usually ends up possessed themselves . Maybe if you destroy the doll, then that demon might attach itself to something else like a car, a person or whatever.
Anyway, whats a snopes though? is that like a show or something?
They investigate urban legends although they haven't posted anything about this one yet.
Sure, but you'll have to wait until after wilderness has his turn first. Besides, it won't be as scary if you have company while being in that room alone with annabelle.
Watch it - Rad is always trying to horn in on my action. He's probably hoping I'll soothe the doll into inaction and get by scot free.
Hey, I don't normally get paid to sleep. How's your ticker? Can it take a scare?
Ever read Piers Anthony, where the incarnation of death comes for an atheist that has slit his wrists? Instead of collecting a soul, it simply dissipates into the air leaving a startled Thanatos with nothing.
I figure it's the same with demons; they cannot touch a non-believer. We simply slip through their clutches, uncatchable.
All right, but to be fair you can't let me know if Wilderness makes it out alive.
This gave me a good chuckle.
I think I'm just open minded enough about spirits/ghosts that I would probably have to say no. I could sit in there and try to remind myself that logically nothing was going to happen, but I think I would probably end up in panic mode sooner rather than later. I live near an abandoned mental hospital and even driving past it at night gives me shivers. Creepy stuff is creepy even if it's all in my head.
