Werewolf mythbusters

Post by PariahPoet »

This thread is dedicated to debunking all the legends about how to become a werewolf. ^^
Here are some of the ones I have tried out of curiosity.



1. Wearing a belt of wolf fur- Busted!

I have indeed done this one. Wore a belt of wolf fur and meditated. Brought on a nice phantom shift, but nothing physical. Although it can be argued that I didn't do it right because the fur I used was naturally shed and spun into yarn, it was not a pelt, which I refuse to touch.


2. Drinking after a wolf- Busted!

Done this one too and it's a no-go.


3. Sleeping outdoors at night on Friday while the light of the full moon shines in your face- Busted!

Been camping since I was old enough to hold my head up, and many cases on a full moon.


4. Not going to confession for 10 years- Busted!

Am not and have never been Catholic, so no confession ever in my life!


5. Having a vision of the wolf spirit- Busted!

I saw a vision/hallucenation/apparition or something like that of a wolf when I was about 5.


6. Having a Dreaming that one is a wolf or running with wolves- Busted!

I have had many dreams of running in my 'rundi form alongside Joker in her wolf form.







Other methods yet to be debunked can be found here- http://werewolves.monstrous.com/how_to_ ... wolf__.htm


Anybody else want to take a turn at the mythbusting? ^^

Um, unless you've been bitten by a werewolf, you can't bust it. And I seem to remember more specific details Pariah. It was water in a wolf's pawprint that you have to drink, or you have to sleep naked under the full moon. And the wolf pelt was supposed to be bestowed by Satan, so a humane one spun of shedded wolf fur probably doesn't count.

Of course, maybe you read different myths. There are many out there.

Kelpten- Water from a pawprint was a different one. The one I was referring to was drinking after a wolf or downstream from one. They are different myths.

heres one you probably wont be able to debunk...or whatever



Ok so I have been on many sites about... "Hey do this and youll become a werewolf!" blah blah blah....


What about the ones that have to do with black magic and the devil and stuff??? Can they actually be debunked? If there was a strange side effect to this or whatever you may not even be able to tell others if it was or not?

Actually that never was in the mythology. It was invented by Hollywood.

Quack, d*** you!

Post by Scott Gardener »

A variation of the not attending confession, there's the myth of lycanthropy being bestowed upon someone unbaptized.

I'm 34 years old last April, and I've never been baptized. Not shifted once in the literal, physical sense. So, this one is totally busted. (Clang!)

Any of you know anyone born feet first on Christmas Day?

I was never baptized and my brother was born, Xmas feet first as i believe and nothing has happened to him, he's just a boring sod. I'm sure that the Mythbusters did do a special on "Busting the Supernatural" with the "Drinking downstream from a wolf" though they probably weren't so good at replicating the condition.

--Edit--

Seventh son busted! my dad is 3rd of seven and his youngest brother has experienced nothing out of the ordinary in his life!

I could easily see Jamie and Adam constructing a rig to hurl duckies at their stunt dummy "Buster" to see if a werewolf could throw one with lethal force.

I guess I can understand that if you went around saying you found a way to become a werewolf most people would think you had lost your mind

Scott's problem of "Can drinking cocoanut make a Werewolf drunk" has one problem: First, Jamie and Adam would have to find a gen-u-wine Werewolf.
Even in San Francisco, this is very difficult to do. Been there...owch.

And, Pariah; Should someone figure out how to do the Werewolf deed, not only would they not share it-they'd probably be topnotch Werewolf debunkers.
They would already know what worked and wouldn't want company...until they had a patent on it. :lol:

Hypothetical remedies

Post by Scott Gardener »

Other myths I'd like to see tested... cures, or at least supposed ways of preventing getting lycanthropy after a bite. I could see Kari, Grant, and Tory, or better, a group of volunteers perfectly OK with becoming a werewolf, taking a bite and then trying various things to rub on the wound, supposedly to keep from getting afflicted. Items that might come up include:

Vodka
Antibacterial soap (I know, but someone would start a myth about it working)
Belladonna and aconite (in homeopathic doses, so as not to kill the person applying it)

Of course, at the end of the episode, with the check in to see how it went, each would come out in Gestalt form, an ear kinked to one side or carrying the torn remnants of a shirt. All supposed remedies would be...

Busted.

You'd still have to find a real Werewolf... And the way to use Vodka to stop the Werewolf virus is to take it internally, not externally.

Then you'd get a drunk werewolf. :lol: With a kinked ear and lots of bruises (Plantigrade to Digitigrade is difficult enough when sober...).

With either a red mustache or an aluminum foil hat... :roflmao:
