Daily 2 Cents: Possessed Doll in Singapore -- Oak Cliff, TX Abduction -- Human Tongue Has A Sixth Sense

Possessed Doll in Singapore

The doll was found beside a busy street in Singapore. The Arabic word on the cloth is translated as 'Allah'. Stories from twitter revealed that the doll is possessed and has been moving around on its own when the original owner isn't home. She binded the eyes and left it far away from home so it wouldn't follow her back.

Some say the doll can be heard talking when it's left alone in a room and is found with its head turned in a different direction. It is said that it spoke in a Malay language and sound like an adult female.

Original owner found that the only way to get rid of it and make sure it won't come back is to cover it's eyesight. The curse is probably passed on to someone else who found it and untied the cloth unknowingly.

Edit: turns out it the Arabic thing meant "bismillah". I think it's to trap whatever jinn or curse is inside from coming out or following the owner back home. Others speculate it's a product of black magic.

The doll has been missing since. On the very day the locals started trending a freaky suicide (guy hanging beside an apartment block) and murder case which is highly unusual in Singapore but is most probably a coincidence and not related. It's irrelevant but you don't see multiple creepy images start appearing on the same day in a small country like Singapore so many assumed they were all linked though obviously it's not. - Reddit.com

Another Possible Abduction

Front Royal, VA - 1/2/11 - unedited: It as during the night, after midnight. I was asleep. I woke up but could not open my eyes. I could smell rain, and felt my legs/feet being set down. there was some sort of cloth covering me and I could feel the edge of it across my lower neck. A voice in my head, coming from my right, informed me that I could open my eyes by saying,"Now you can look." I became fearful, but turned my head to the left and opened my eyes. All I saw in a split second were two large almond shaped eyes. I felt an incredible amount of love, then I blanked out immediately and fell back asleep. When I woke up that morning, I found out it had rained during the night, and I did not have my window open due to it being January. - MUFON CMS

Human Tongue Has A Sixth Sense

In addition to recognising sweet, sour, salty, savory (umami), and bitter tastes, your tongue has a sixth taste sense - the "sense of carbs" - that allows you to perceive carbohydrates -- the nutrients that break down into sugar and form the main source of energy.

The "sense of carbs" also triggers the pleasure centre of the brain and could explain why people often find diet foods unsatisfying, a research shows.

"The mouth is a more capable sensory organ than we currently appreciate, able to distinguish carbohydrates from artificial sweeteners when both taste identical," said Nicholas Gant from University of Auckland in New Zealand.

Carbohydrates are extremely powerful stimuli that have profound and immediate effects on the brain and the systems it controls, Gant added.

For the study, researchers asked participants to squeeze a sensor held between their right index finger and thumb when shown a visual cue.

At the same time, the participants' tongues were rinsed with one of three different fluids.

The first two were artificially sweetened - to identical tastes - but with only one containing carbohydrate. The third, a control, was neither sweet nor carb-loaded.

When the carbohydrate solution was used, the researchers observed a 30 percent increase in activity for the brain areas that control movement and vision.

This reaction, they propose, is caused by our mouths reporting that additional energy in the form of carbohydrates is coming.

"This 'sixth taste sense' for carbohydrate is likely one of many additional food qualities that are detectable by receptors in the mouth," Gant was quoted as saying in media reports. - IBN Live
