Scary indeed.
I can't imagine how they must have felt.

I can see Hollywood taking something like this, calling it ‘13’, and embellishing it with some wonky supernatural angle.
Tis a sad thing for that town in any event. I do wish the article was more informative about the ‘cult’ itself as opposed to the aftermath.
 
 
“You tell yourself to just
enjoy the process,” he added. “That whether you succeed or fail, win or
lose, it will be fine. You pretend to be Zen. You adopt detachment, and
ironic humor, while secretly praying for a miracle.”

And it doesn't really seem to be a ‘cult’ at all; just a (relatively) large number of people committing suicide in a certain period of time.
:/

No… This isn't a cult… This is about the suicides among young people on Bebo who think it's cool to be popular and forever remember among their peers. I've seen this before on another article from SA (my friends goes there frequently and linked me the page).

The only link between the victims is that they all knew each other as friends, so once one killed themselves, another one would do it too. Sorry for ruining the CULT thing. :p


Edit: Here's the link to one of the articles about it:

At least they succeeded. They must have read this: How Not To Fail and decided to be dedicated.

for some strange reason, it made me think of “the suicide club”.

It's an manga and also a movie, in case you were wondering. In the manga series, they were focusing on how kids suffering could commit suicide together, or commit suicide after close friends do it too. It also highlighted on how some people tended to glorify suicide, making it so that young people were more prone to do it.

That movie started getting pretty ridiculous towards the end though
