As you know, challenges are quite popular among us all and in the world of internet, they are like rituals that are passed on from one to another. People try all sorts of trick and take life threatening steps just to do something whacky. The worst part is that they motivate people to be a part in these ridiculous challenges.
Guess what, people are more stupid because they accept these challenges and do it exactly what their friends did without fearing the consequences. Recently, a dark challenge is doing rounds on the internet. It goes by the name ‘Blue Whale Challenge’. It is said to have originated in Russia and it has claimed the lives of 130 teenagers all over the world.
What Is The Blue Whale Challenge?
It comprises of about 50 unique challenges which are assigned to every player and they are encouraged to finish it off. It consists of only sinister kind of challenges like watching some horror flicks at odd hours of the night and finally claim your own life.
This suicidal game got its name from the mammal blue whale because the whales voluntarily move up the shore and wash up on the beaches. They do this to end their life. Such inspiration only to what..take lives and clean up mother earth off all the unnecessary weaklings and escapists?!
How does this challenge work?
If you’re really stupid and sick of life, you will end up seeking this app through private groups. It is unavailable for the general public to download. However, if you seek the game so bad, you’ll be found by the private groups and send the app.
Once you have installed the game, you’ll be talking to the administrator who will ask you questions about yourself and then ask for your confirmation to willingly play this whole game. Once the player accepts it, there’s no going back. The curator is another person who is in charge of sending tasks to the players and checking if they are really playing it or not.
If you want to stop mid way, and not continue it anymore, you have no choice but surrender yourself to them. They are known to threaten the players by selling all their private information on the dark web. The creators also threaten and warn the players that they will kill them by themselves or perhaps kill their family members.

Suicide is not a way out of trouble because the suffering will only be passed to all the loved, near and dear ones. Young children jumping off roofs and cranes and what not just to end their suffering.
