Strange notes in the form of origami butterflies have been found in the city of Seattle. The ominous messages declare that the reader of the note, “is not safe.”
The appearance of these creepy messages are strange, and some of the theories are even stranger. In recent days, some Seattle residents have found little-folded up notes around the city in neighborhoods like Capitol Hill, Queen Anne, and Fremont. Some of the notes are folded into origami butterflies giving them a softer visual appearance. But when one unfolds the sweetly looking butterfly, inside is the phrase, “You Are Not Safe,” superimposed on a Seattle-specific image — the skyline, or the Fremont Troll. There’s also a date, “9/28/17.”
While the troll may appear ominous at first glance, it’s just a sculpture, but it is appearing on some of the origami warnings. Some of the notes also display a web address, www.allgodsmustdie.com.
One of the images in these strange folded notes depicts the Fremont troll surrounded by what could be a river of anything liquid. From blood to coffee or even water, the minds of those who have seen these are running wild. The date and website complete the message.
The website doesn’t seem to be working at all at the time of this writing, but even before that, The Seattle Patch reported that there isn’t much at all on the site anyway. If you were to visit it while it is working, you see a scramble of letters that eventually move together to form that phrase, “You Are Not Safe.” In the background, Wagner’s “Das Rheingold” plays. If you wait long enough, an image of what appears to be an upside-down psychedelic goat appears behind the words.
Another of the eerie notes unfolds to show a mirror image of the Seattle skyline. When you look closely, one side is missing the Space Needle. People have speculated about the note being a threat against Seattle’s most famous landmark. Or, could it be a reference to the heroin epidemic and King County’s safe-use heroin injection site proposal? No one knows.
Queen Anne resident Alyson Rae was among the Seattleites who found a few of the notes. They were scattered outside her apartment building over the weekend. When Rae unfolded one of the notes and saw what was inside, she was a little concerned. She went on Facebook and attempted to unravel the mystery, but input from people online has only created more questions and upped the creepiness factor exponentially.
Perhaps the oddest note of them all contains images of famous Seattlites. In front of rainbow colors, the note displays the odd and creepily drawn depictions.
Making an appearance, is Kurt Cobain (the deceased lead singer of Nirvana), Russell Wilson (the quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks), with what looks like small white devil horns on his head, and the Starbucks mermaid who has scars on her chest. At the top of the image is the most befuddling part: three men whose identities are debatable. The one in the middle is most likely former mayor Ed Murray; people think the one on the right might be Stranger editor Dan Savage. Some say the one on the left, the guy holding a book, is Judah Smith from The City Church.
Regardless of the inherent creepy factor, authorities are not concerned. And speculations as to why the messages appear, include a marketing campaign for a video game or some kind of viral advertising scheme. But no one is certain what the meaning is or the reason these strange notes appeared.
Guess I’ll find out on Sept 28. On my calendar.
LOL- TODAY is the 28th
I’m not worried. We officially got a Sep 23rd End of the World postponement until Oct 21st and I’m not gunna let some origami scare tactic move the date up to today!
Steve Scalise from Louisiana has returned with great joy and acclaimation and thunderous spplaudeto The People’s House. Giving God credit for answered prayers, the Capital Polce, Crystal and David, and many other.
Welcome back Steve!
My work firewall lists the site as “Games” and wont let me view it.
at least they picked a nice theme song for their site
Site runs now…about abortion and baby murder and how they are going to hell…I agree…
Don’t worry. Just lil snowflakes trying to be tuff, LOL.
Wake me up when real butterflies have warnings.
You WHO!! Just thought of something. Do all you campers have your concealed carry licences? In Lots of states now they are fairly easy to get, and I think a very good idea. The fact 0ver 17 million people have them is starting to get the ball rolling for a national reciprocity law, and that would be a very good thing. Yes, it would be better if the courts just read the Constitution, but it’s a start. And no I’m not worried about being on a list, I’m already on lots of them and so are you. Plus that list is getting so large it no longer matters; you cannot just go out and harass 17 million people with guns. even the Gov isn’t that stupid
“The bluest skies you’ve ever seen are in Seattle” when it ain’t raining. Is Ft. Lewis in Seattle? I’ve read plenty of homeless encampments there and in Portland. Sounds like a dangerous place to live, anywhere on the west coast. Leaving messages around willy nilly is one way to get your message out. When I was younger I wanted to take a black marker and write anti government statements in phone booths and other public places, alas no more phone booths.
FT Lewis is south of Seattle, Tacoma is outside the gate.
been there done that, my first post stateside after Vietnam.
there are too many sick bastards in this world,
/ guess the STRONG SHIT hit town…..this week…
Bunch of damn simple-minded, fruits out there on the west coast…
Wrong again. Native white Californians are the hardiest people for having to put up with the influx of illegals AND pathetic east coasters wanting paradise (which they pollute with their giant pickups and SUV’s and terrible NY/NJ dialects). No simple mind here. Go take a knee, tough guy.
LOL, was California uninhabited when the white natives found it?
All that’s on the website now is the rainbow origami butterfly moving in an out. That’s it, nothing else.
How many thousands of taxpayer dollars went to pay for this? Does the city have any laws against unauthorized structures on city land? Do these people have real jobs?
This looks like advertising by a group of nerds who have developed some new gaming software.
… either that or NK propaganda spread by the fat boy’s secret agents to scare Seattle into unilateral surrender.
I just got back from there. It is a message of anti-abortion.
Site runs now…Its about abortion baby murder and whats in their future for doing so…I agree…
Is it possible to get arthritis in your hands from folding so many origami’s? At any rate, somebody’s having fun with a printer!
Child sacrifice is the evil of our age.
Y’all need to get woke, because God will not have patience with this nation forever. The blood of children is running through the streets of your city. Have you even lifted up your voice against it?
