When it comes time to pick a vacation destination, you might say there are just too many places to choose from. Allow me to make a suggestion, though… Maybe instead of picking some place you’ll enjoy, choose a destination that will help you face your fears of jellyfish! I know, it sounds crazy, but just wait until I tell you about Jellyfish Lake, located on an uninhabited island just off the coast of Koror in Palau. On this small, rocky island is a saltwater lake that’s home to literally hundreds of thousands of jellyfish. Flickr / Stephen Masters Even more [More]
Picture this. You wake up on what seems like regular day. It’s a little cloudy, but that’s no big deal. You put the coffee on and take a stroll outside while it brews. When you get outside, you look up at the sky and notice something on a telephone pole nearby. Much to your horror, it looks like a massive group of spiders hanging out on an immense web. If this scenario sounds too far-fetched to be real, check out the video below. If you have even a slight fear of spiders, you might want to skip this one. (via [More]
Even though the price of oil and natural gas has hit a multi-year low, that doesn’t mean hydraulic fracturing (more commonly known as fracking) has stopped. For those who don’t know, fracking is a particularly destructive method of drilling for oil and natural gas. The complicated process tears through layers of rock to get at pockets of oil and gas by essentially creating small earthquakes that release the precious materials. While it’s a technological breakthrough, there are many aspects of fracking that are poorly understood and worse still, intentionally kept secret. There is also a growing body of evidence that [More]

With that in mind, anytime you see a video or a picture of a supposed UFO flying near planet Earth, just remember that it’s probably a hoax. Of course, even if it is a hoax, it can still be pretty cool to check out what others are presenting as “evidence.” Take, for example, the following (clearly fake) video of an alien “tripod” walking around the city of Novosibirsk [More]
As we’ve previously discussed, tarantulas, despite being pretty harmless, are still notoriously terrifying creatures. Even though they can bite humans, their bite isn’t able to do much damage. Still, most people would be frightened to come across one in their everyday lives. Well, please allow me to make your natural fear of tarantulas even worse. There are some species of tarantulas that can hiss by rubbing together the bristles on their legs. Usually, this noise is a defense mechanism, so if you happen to keep a tarantula as a pet and it starts making this noise when you get close, [More]
Jellyfish are right up there with wasps on the list of creatures that pretty much everyone hates. The difference with jellyfish, though, is that there are some subspecies whose stings can kill you almost instantly. (With a wasp sting, the only way one will kill you is if you’re deathly allergic.) So, just how much worse is a jellyfish sting than a wasp’s? Check out the video below demonstrating the impact a box jellyfish’s venom has on the heart of a toad. WARNING: the following video is definitely not for the faint of heart. Well that’s terrifying. What makes the [More]
By this point, if you find a former mental asylum, you can assume that it’s haunted. It’s really just a matter of how haunted the joint is. Is it plagued by playful ghosts, or overrun with specters of the angrier variety? When it comes to exploring the old Westborough State Hospital in Westborough, Massachusetts, the answers to those questions are respectively “yes” and “the latter.” That’s at least judging by this video that was posted in December by a pair of urban explorers. Upon reviewing the tape, they noticed what appeared to be a pair of glowing eyes watching them [More]
Some people might think you’re paranoid if you invest in a home security system. But the fact is that even if you don’t have a history of break-ins, it’s never a bad idea to be prepared. For evidence of this, I present the following video recorded on an admittedly terrible home security camera by Redditor drunle. In a post on the social sharing site, he says that the creepy figure in the video below is a regular stalker of his… I’d say it’s time to invest in some better locks. However, this isn’t the first time the YouTube user has [More]
googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DTBT_ATF’); }); For the adventurous among us, urban exploration is an exhilarating pastime. However, you must be careful when you’re exploring these places. Abandoned buildings are sometimes not as abandoned as you might think. That’s a lesson that urban explorer Jaroslava Langova learned in a terrifying way. Watch it all unfold in the video below. Don’t say we didn’t warn you. (via Reddit) I think I peed myself a little bit there at the end. It’s not like I had any urban exploration plans, but if I did, this video would make me think twice.

The way that ghosts behave has always intrigued me. Why do they do the things they do? While it’s highly unlikely that we’ll ever get a real answer, that doesn’t mean we can’t speculate. Personally, I think most spirits screw with us for fun. Being dead sounds like a pretty boring gig, after all. If you could, why wouldn’t you spice things up by pranking the living? I know I would. For evidence of such mischievous activities, I present to you the following security camera footage from outside a mosque in Malaysia. It’s freaky activity, but it’s certainly not evil. [More]
