They may have moved on from controversial dresses and DIY lip enhancements, but now teenagers have a new craze to keep themselves busy: black magic.
A game similar to the Ouija Board called the “Charlie Charlie Challenge” has taken over Twitter, Instagram and Vine over the last few days, which has people using pencils to summon a Mexican demon that will answer any question you ask it.
So how does it work exactly?
First you place two pencils on top of each other in the shape of a cross creating four quadrants on a piece of paper.
Two of them are labeled “yes” and the other two are labelled “no.”
You must then recite the phrase “Charlie, Charlie, are you here,” (or “can we play”) and if the top pencil points towards “Yes” then – congratulations – you have successfully summoned a demon!
Charlie will answer any important life question you wish to ask, including which member of One Direction you’ll eventually marry.
Because apparently Mexican demons have a lot of free time on their hands.
All you have to do is change the options in the quadrants to whatever you wish to know. Just remember to say “Charlie Charlie can we stop” when you’re finished, or else you will leave a portal to Hell open inside your home.
An alternate version of the game involves two players each holding 3 pencils in the shape of a rectangle. If the pencils move up or in, it is considered a “yes” response, and if they move down or out, it’s a “no.”
The Unicode Consortium responsible for standardizing text characters and emoji across different platforms recently announced that they'll be unleashing a new batch of characters for 2016. You can see some of the highlights above from Yahoo, including the much-requested "selfie" and "bacon" emoji.
The elephant in the room, however, is the lack of a taco emoji. HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO EXPRESS TACO BELL REGRET, UNICODE CONSORTIUM? You expect me to use my words like an Actual Human Being? That's gosh-dang absurd and you know it.
If you're curious the emoji subcommittee (again a Real Thing and not something we just made up) has some explanations for their selections. Otherwise, here's a list of what's the come in 2016:
