Two schoolgirls in China have committed suicide in an attempt to travel back in time.

The girls decided to end their lives after one of them lost a remote control to a door, China Daily reports, via People's Daily. Xiao Hua told her best friend and fellow classmate, Xiao Mei, that she was worried about coming clean to her parents. The names are reportedly pseudonyms.

In an effort to avoid potential consequences, the girls allegedly took inspiration from a popular television show and committed suicide to travel back in time.

They left notes explaining their decision before jumping -- and subsequently drowning -- in a pool.


In a note obtained by the Shanghaiist.com, one of the girls explained her reasoning for her rash decision by writing: "In my life, I have two secret wishes. One is to time-travel back to Qing Dynasty and shoot a film with the emperor, and the other is to travel to outer space," the Christian Post reports.

The chain of events has raised concerns about the influence of media on young children, and the State Administration of Radio, Film and Television has placed restrictions on airing certain shows between 7 p.m. and 9 p.m., according to People's Daily.

But some aren't too sure about the story.

Anna North, a writer for Jezebel, observes that the article seems to highlight the apparent dangers of time travel-centered shows. She wonders whether the government had an influence on the direction of the article.

A show influencing someone is one thing, committing an act because you lack common sense/intelligence is a whole other ballpark. No, it's a whole other ballpark in a whole other fucking state. Taking the show down because a couple girls are retarded is...retarded.

Sorry, but Suprgamr232 hit the nail on the head with his post.

Don't get me wrong, I feel for the families of those two girls... but if they honestly believed that jumping off a roof into a pool will somehow turn back time and neither of them thought "Hey, you know what? This might be dangerous, we might actually get hurt" throughout the entire process then I let the Darwin's wheel turn. Genepool cleansed, nothing to see here.

The fools dont they know they need 1.21 gigawatts of electricity
Also spot-on. lol.
