What kind of noise is that supposed to be, Luna?

This is 100% worth sharing again.  It’s one of my favorite videos of all time.

HOW IT ALL STARTED
It began during 1692, after a group of young girls in Salem Village, Massachusetts, claimed to be possessed by the devil and accused several local women of witchcraft. 
In January 1692, 9-year-old Elizabeth Parris and 11-year-old Abigail Williams began having fits, including violent contortions and uncontrollable outbursts of screaming. After a local doctor, William Griggs, diagnosed bewitchment, other young girls in the community began to exhibit similar symptoms. 
HYSTERIA SPREADS
The girls blamed 3 women for bewitching them: Tituba, the Parris’ Caribbean slave; Sarah Good, a homeless beggar; and Sarah Osborne, an elderly impoverished woman. While Good & Osborne pleaded innocence, Tituba confessed to be guilty. 
She said "The Devil came to me and bid me serve him." She described elaborate images of black dogs, red cats, yellow birds and a "black man" who wanted her to sign his book. She admitted that she signed the book and said there were several other witches looking to destroy the Puritans. All three women were put in jail.
HANGINGS
The first woman who has hanged was Bridget Bishop. She was known for her gossipy habits and promiscuity. When asked if she committed witchcraft she responded “I am innocent as the child unborn.” 
Overall 19 people were hanged. 7 died in jail and a 71-year-old man was pressed to death with heavy stones after he refused to enter a plea at his arraignment. 
CONCLUSION
Trails continued to dwindle in the 1693. Many people realized it was ridiculous and began to speak out against it. A respected minister Cotton Mather warned against the dubious value of evidence against witches. 
In January 1697, the Massachusetts General Court declared a day of fasting for the tragedy of the Salem witch trials. Massachusetts Colony passed legislation restoring the good names of the condemned and providing financial restitution to their heirs in 1711.

THE CREEPY CASE OF EMILIE  SAGEE
Emilie Sagée was a 32 year old French teacher. And although the school’s administration was quite pleased with Sagée’s performance, she soon became the object of rumor and odd speculation. Sagée, it seemed, had a double that would appear and disappear in full view of the students.
In the middle of class one day, while Sagée was writing on the blackboard, her exact double appeared beside her. The doppelganger precisely copied the teacher’s every move as she wrote, except that it did not hold any chalk. The event was witnessed by 13 students in the classroom. A similar incident was reported at dinner one evening when Sagée’s doppelganger was seen standing behind her, mimicking the movements of her eating, although it held no utensils.
The doppelganger did not always echo her movements, however. On several occasions, Sagée would be seen in one part of the school when it was known that she was in another at that time. The most astonishing instance of this took place in full view of the entire student body of 42 students on a summer day in 1846.
As they sat at the long tables working, they could clearly see Sagée in the school’s garden gathering flowers. Another teacher was supervising the children. When this teacher left the room to talk to the headmistress, Sagée’s doppelganger appeared in her chair - while the real Sagée could still be seen in the garden. The students noted that Sagée’s movements in the garden looked tired while the doppelganger sat motionless. Two brave girls approached the phantom and tried to touch it, but felt an odd resistance in the air surrounding it. One girl actually stepped between the teacher’s chair and the table, passing right through the apparition, which remained motionless. It then slowly vanished.
Sagée claimed never to have seen the doppelganger herself, but said that whenever it was said to appear, she felt drained and fatigued. Her physical color even seemed to pale at those times.

MORE INFORMATION ON DOPPELGANGERS

Isn’t it said that when a doppelganger is seen by the original person, that death is an inevitable consequence?

 I should have kept on scrolling…

Yes, click on the more information on doppelgangers, many people have experienced it (Abe Lincoln, Queen Elizabeth) and shortly after died
For some reason, it seems to be a bad omen
