The next time you’re alone in your room, turn down the lights. Think of something on your body that varies in length, such as hair. It must be clearly viewable from your perspective. Grab a ruler and, looking in the mirror, quickly grab a hair at random; you must confuse it. Hold it in position as best you can and note the length. Look down. Yours will be different.

Don’t look back up.

Don’t turn your back to that mirror ever again.

    Haha.
    I’m half tempted to try this.
    When I read the first part of this, I honestly wanted to go hug my mirror. xD

    Most “creepypasta rituals” offer a reward for your risk, while this just offers mild amusement at best, but still offers the suggested stick of “not turning your back on the mirror again” for whatever ominous reason.

    So why would I want to do this? Sounds like I just get one more thing to be paranoid about. No thanks. XD

    Why can’t we look back? Because the mirror will be jealous that my hair is longer? o_0

    Good one. There should be more like this, instead of “some random demon will horribly mangle for teh lulz.”

    And it has just the right amount of vagueness to make it really creepy.

    “Think of something on your body that varies in length”

    I tried this, and my mirror image was twice my size. Now I’m so depressed. :(

    Face it, man. Your mirror image has a bigger dong then you.
    You may never look at it again out of sheer shame.
