LIGHT AS A FEATHER STIFF AS A BOARD

  Author: 17  Category:(Ghosts) Created:(8/28/1999 10:49:00 PM)

I was at a birthday party when I was in 7th grade. It was about midnight, and we had all gotten bored. We had decided to play the game light as a feather, stiff as a board. As you know if youve ever played the game, one person lays down and closes their eyes. Then 10 or so people circle around that peron, and they all pick him\her up with thier hands. Then they continuously chant, 'Light as a feather, stiff as a board'. Everytime you say it you go around the circle and one person at a time, taking turns, lets one of their fingers go. The object of the game is to get the person to float in mid air. We said the saying several times, and finally I and another friend were holding our 165 lb. friend in mid air, each only using our right pinkie. We were just about to let go of her when she opened her eyes because someone laughed. She immediately fell to the floor, with astonishing force behind her fall. Everyone was scared from never experiencing something so strange in their lif! e. And the really wierd thing was, that with only two people using their right pinkies to hold a 165 lb. girl in mid air, we never felt any of the weight. So if you are a person up to try a breath taking experience without getting scared, go ahead and try this one!

How it changed my life:

From then on, at birthday parties, I allways took ghost games seriously, and never participated in them again, because of believing so deeply in them.

Date: 10/29/1999 8:51:00 AM    Try sitting in front of a the bathroom mirror, in the dark and chanting Mary Worth, Mary Worth several times until she appears in the mirror and tries to get you
Date: 11/6/1999 6:33:00 PM    That was pretty scary stuff! We only thought you needed 3 people surrounding the girl on the floor like in 'The Craft'. We tried and thought it was fake then. Thankyou for telling us how to REALLY do this.
Date: 11/6/1999 6:35:00 PM    And I thought seances were freaky!
Date: 11/11/1999 5:01:00 PM    My cousin and her friends did this. Each of them had two fingers on the girl when someone opened the door. It broke their concentration, and they dropped her and she was paralyzed. Exactly how is it done? Like getting the person "stiff as a board"? If you can give me any links or instructions, my e-mail is northernwitch@netscape.net
Date: 11/15/1999 8:21:00 AM    I would like to know how you made the light as a feather, stiff as a board. Pleas e-mail me at Valley_Girl_69_98@yahoo.com. My friends and I have tried it but we can never get it to work.

Date: 2/16/2000 12:50:00 PM    I THINK THAT STORY WAS REALLY GOOD, BECAUSE THE SAME THING HAPPENED TO ME AND MY FRIENDS.
Date: 2/18/2000 9:00:00 AM    I am a witch, and I have tried to play before and it really does work. Concentration is very important, you have to be serious to get really good results! If anyone has questions or comments or knows anything that I should know mail me at gblnkng98@yahoo.com.

Date: 3/1/2000 11:01:00 PM  From Authorid: 4887    it never works when i try it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!ladydina79  
Date: 3/3/2000 10:30:00 PM    is there any evil or ghosts or anything like that involved in this "light as a feather, stiff as a board
" game?
Date: 3/8/2000 5:05:00 PM    light as a feather stiff as a board hu? well, although many of you think it's some kind of amazing occult thing or ghoasty sort of stuff, it's not. It works i'll give you that, but it's nothing to be scared over. All it is, is the power of suggestion. You suggest to yourself and to the person being lifted that they are as light as a feather. You tell this to your brain and with deep concentration, you can actually manage to lift them without feeling the weight, but as soo as no one hold them up they fall. It's sort of like the classic example of the mother who pickes up a half tonne truck off of her child. For any other looking for info, cantanc me at "vampire201@hotmail.com" plaese be sure to specify who you are and what you are looking for on the letter or it will be trashed. thanx.
Date: 3/13/2000 5:44:00 PM  From Authorid: 820    Awesome!! I've tried it, but it somehow never worked!! Great story!! ~nicole~  
Date: 4/26/2000 8:52:00 PM    alrite, all light as a freather stiff as a bored is, well its finding the center of gravity, and you can do it with anything, really only 1 person is holding all the weight! It has nothing to do with ghosts or spirits or any of that stuff...its simply gravity....
Date: 5/5/2000 10:29:00 PM  From Authorid: 7157    THat was cool!!! I heard of that happening jojann  
Date: 5/6/2000 6:59:00 AM    i actually had an experience too, where the person got stuck in the air, but then she wiggled out and dropped down! it was sooo freaky but funny when she got stuck! If anyone is interested in telekinesis, i have a page about it on my site, its.. http://www.clik.to/iceblue. see ya
Date: 5/29/2000 1:31:00 PM    It worked with my friends too, but I love that kind of stuff so I do it whenever I can.
Date: 5/30/2000 7:43:00 PM    is it true that it really happened? it is very cool. i might want to try it one with my friends and cousins. it will be cool!!!!!
Date: 6/13/2000 11:41:00 AM    Hey, SOMEONE EMAIL ME AND TELL ME HOW IT WORKS CAUSE I CAN NEVER GET IT TO WORK MY EMAIL IS , bruceb_25@hotmail.com
Date: 8/26/2000 11:21:00 PM    first of all, you are supposed to use your index finger and when they get up in mid air you are supposed to let go and they are supposed to float!DUH!
Date: 9/28/2000 5:42:00 AM    I've heard so many people saying that only witchces are capable of the metaphysical. I am a male witch and I can tell you this is not so. People think spells can only be done by witches but this is also not true. A spell is "mindpower" its your inner will and how badly you want it. Everyone can do spells and just because you can work magick doesnt mean your a witch, being a witch can be a long hard journey but it is honestly not what Hollywood makes it out to be. If there is anyone who can send me info and outlines for "light as a feather stiff as a board" it would be very much appreciated. Send to oogachaka30@hotmail.com
Date: 9/28/2000 8:21:00 AM    If you really want to scare yourself go to a mirror light a red candle and repeat "Bloody Mary, Bloody Mary" until her grotesque bloodstained reflection appears. Is this just an urban legend - see for yourself.
Date: 10/8/2000 1:57:00 PM    It is fake! It never works. Peole just make it up to try to have some fun. It has never worked and never will!
Date: 10/11/2000 7:45:00 PM  From Authorid: 2011    I've heard of this before, but I nevere tried it.  
Date: 10/12/2000 5:49:00 PM    The way it works is mind over matter. If you believe the person you are trying to lift is light as a feather and stiff as a board, they will be. It also works in a sitting up position with two people, one on either side of the person to be lifted.
Date: 10/15/2000 6:01:00 AM    yeh i played it and it didn't work!!!!
Date: 10/20/2000 8:12:00 PM    Its nice to hear that i'm not the only one thats ever had this work.
Date: 11/6/2000 12:24:00 PM  From Authorid: 13455    THAT'S A COOL STORY...THANKS...MELODY  
Date: 12/4/2000 6:46:00 PM    Hey i think it is so cool,but when i was at my birthday party,i tried it,it never worked.So any helpful hints you can give me would be nice.E-mail me at Raquel146@hotmail.com .Thank you.Keep trying
Date: 1/16/2001 10:49:00 AM    better if you had pics!
Date: 1/21/2001 2:31:00 PM    I have been researching the concept of levitation for a little bit,and I think this stuff is really neat. If you got to www.castleofspirits.com/levitation.html, like I did, you should find several neat ways to levitat.
You may also find some theories on how it is done.
Date: 1/30/2001 1:59:00 PM    I thought the story was good! Cuz I once, but at a Halloween party, was the person floating in mid-air! I WAS FREAKED OUT!
Date: 2/9/2001 6:08:00 PM    i think that is really kool im in to thaaat stuff but never done that
Date: 3/15/2001 11:39:00 AM    i want to ask what are other ghost games u can do besides "light as a feather, stiff as a board"??
Date: 4/10/2001 3:28:00 AM  From Authorid: 13609    omg, it worked!! how cool!! Thats very scary tho too  
Date: 7/29/2001 10:04:00 AM  From Authorid: 12823    I think it is fake. Just a matter of distributing the weight evenly.  
Date: 7/4/2002 11:47:00 PM  From Authorid: 18516    I'd like to see it for myself. That'd be pretty neat tho.  
Date: 4/10/2003 10:57:00 PM  From Authorid: 19586    It would be interesting to see it first hand...  
Date: 7/1/2005 8:46:00 AM  From Authorid: 51292    Interesting...I think my friends and i tried this when we were younger. It never worked for us though..80(
