This Kid’s Mirror Reflection Moves Faster than He Does, Freaks Out Netizens

Everyone knows that the mirror shows someone’s or something’s reflection but sometimes, optical illusions make you see something that isn’t really there or see the reflection in a way that you might not expect.

Take for example this rather terrifying video of a kid whose reflection appears to move faster than he does. It was so creepy that a lot of netizens are freaking out and expressing fear for the kid’s life.

The unnamed kid lives in San Antonio, Texas. One night, his mother filmed him while he was making silly faces on the mirror. There’s really nothing out of the ordinary with the mom filming her kid doing something that many might label as unnecessary or simply ordinary but knowing moms these days, it was something that you might easily see on social media.

But this mom got more than what she bargained for when the video showed the child’s reflection moving much faster than he does!

Is it just me or did his reflection walk away quicker than he did?” the mother shared on Snapchat.

In the clip, the boy could be seen making faces – and his reflection did the same thing, as it should. But as the kid put his hand down, the mirror reflection moved away from the frame a fraction of a second faster than the boy.

A lot of people couldn’t help but wonder if there’s a thing as a ‘delay’ in mirrors, just like live broadcasts in televisions, perhaps.

I’ve never heard of a mirror that’s got a .5 second delay,” someone wrote.

Another netizen said she doesn’t want to find out how the mirror reflection moved faster than the kid because she believes it is something that often happens at the start of a horror movie.

Everybody knows mirror images are from another dimension, they can do what they want,” someone joked.

But others sought a scientific explanation to the scary video. Some claimed that the boy must have stepped back before moving towards the camera while others said it was just the angle of the mirror against the lens of the camera.

Wanted Yaya Ad Goes Viral for Extremely High Standards

A wanted yaya ad goes viral for the extremely high posted by a certain “Mr. Leng.” Netizens couldn’t help but make comments about this photo, especially because the qualifications were similar to that of a beauty queen.

The real question now is whether Mr. Leng is really looking for a yaya or a beauty queen? LOL

Wanted Yaya Ad with Extremely High Standards

What qualities would you look for when it comes to looking for a yaya (nanny)?

Many of us are likely to pick hardworking, with experiencing handling and caring for small kids, and preferably someone mature, such as older than 30 years old (because some people think they’re more capable of caring for kids than younger nannies).

But a certain “Mr. Leng” posted a wanted yaya ad that got netizens scratching their heads (and some laughing) because the qualifications aren’t like what we’d expect for a nanny.

In photos circulating online in various Facebook groups and individual accounts, the ad by Mr. Leng appears to have been posted inside a restaurant.

The obviously Filipino restaurant was selling silog meals, batchoy, and other Pinoy favorites.

In the post, Mr. Leng is searching for a yaya who’s at least 5’8” in height. This number 1 qualification got many netizens laughing because it’s rare for Filipino women to be of this height, unless they have a mixed nationality.

If you have no idea, most Pinays have an average height of 5’ to 5’4”.

So, Mr. Leng is really pushing it when he posted this height requirement.

Next, he wanted one who’s Chinita, has flawless skin, and “maputi” (fair-skinned). It’s clear that he wants a mestizo (mixed nationality). After all, Filipinos have naturally brown skin, possibly morena (dark) complexion.

To top it all, the yaya has to have the vital statistics of 36-24-34 – and that, my friends, made everyone think that Mr. Leng is really looking for a beauty queen, not a yaya.

Perhaps it’s a joke – and that’s really the best explanation we can come up with over Mr. Leng’s extremely high standards for his wanted yaya ad.

What do you think of this ad?

What are the Qualifications to Becoming a Yaya?

You don’t need to have an educational degree to become a yaya, but some nanny agencies or employers might require at least a grade school diploma.

Other qualifications might include:

  • Police clearance
  • Recommendations (or past experience)

The black gothic theme for the photoshoot and the couple’s sad faces made the pictures look like they were posing for a funeral, not a wedding! Do you agree?

However, it turned out that the couple from Basak San Nicolas in Cebu City are getting their bread and butter almost literally from the cemetery. It turned out that the bride, Kayra Mae Geocallo, owns a funeral parlor while the groom, Stoney Jey Palomar, works as an embalmer.

It’s actually a perfect match for the couple – and the cemetery is their perfect location for their prenup shoot. But many netizens still think the pictures are giving them some goosebumps.

For those who think that they don’t look happy together, it might really by just for show. The two have been together for 11 years and actually have a four-year-old daughter.

Ultimate Anime Fan? New Dad Names Baby as “Naruto Uzumaki Namikaze”

Would dare name your child after an anime or cartoon character? A new dad angers his family after naming his baby as “Naruto Uzumaki Namikaze” – but he’s got a good explanation for it. He’s definitely the ultimate anime fan, huh?

New Dad Names Baby as “Naruto Uzumaki Namikaze”

Finding the right baby name for your baby can be a challenging task for new parents. There are so many things to consider, especially when it comes to the name meaning, how to spell it, how significant it can be for the child and the family, the potential for bullying or embarrassment, etc.

But one dad threw caution to the wind after deciding to name his child after anime characters. His decision angered his family, but netizens are divided over praising and bashing him for what he did.

Before you take your side in this “Naruto Uzumaki Namikaze” issue, it’s a good idea to ask why he did it in the first place. For sure, he had his reasons.

When Jamesey Bolivar Maribojo, 29, knew that he’s going to be a single dad for his new baby, he decided to name his baby with this rather unusual name. Not only does he love anime and the Naruto series, but he explained that he felt like he could relate with the experiences of the protagonist who grew up without a family.

Mahilig ako manood ng anime, mula noon hanggang ngayon. Kung alam niyo ang Naruto: Shippuden, ang kuwento niya ay wala siyang pamilya na kinalakihan. Bilang single parent, 24/7 akong nag-aalaga sa anak ko. Bago kami naghiwalay ng nanay niya, nagpasya kami na ipangalan siya kay Naruto,” he explained.

Pero ako di ako nakontento sa ‘Naruto’ lang. Isinama ko rin ang apelyido ng nanay ni Naruto na si Kushina Uzumaki at apelyido ng tatay niya na si Minato Namikaze. Ang naging name ng anak ko, Naruto Uzumaki Namikaze P. Maribojo.

Jamesey said that his former partner allowed him to pick the name, but his family got angry. They told him that the kid could be up for bullying and might have a difficult time writing such a long name.

With that background story, we can all agree that the unusual name does appear impressive, right?

Naming Rules in the Philippines

There aren’t any restrictions on what you can name your kid in the Philippines. It’s not even unusual to find people with real names like “Baby,” “Don,” “Doña,” “Jesus,” etc.
