When exploring abandoned places is your passion, you need to be ready for the unexpected to happen at pretty much any moment. Seasoned urban explorers all have their own kind of rituals and safety precautions when they’re on the job. For example, in interviews with urban explorer Seph Lawless, he said that he occasionally carries a gun with him while exploring certain places. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBP_ATF’); }); However, for photographer and urban explorer Freaktography, nothing could have prepared him for what some believe he encountered inside this beautiful abandoned home in Ontario, Canada. Freaktography googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBM_BTF’); }); The old [More]
When it comes to the cutest, cuddliest members of the insect kingdom, which species do you think of? If you’ve seen Pixar’s A Bug’s Life, then you probably think of caterpillars. Sure, they’re still bugs, but they’re undeniably adorable. That being said, allow me to burst your bubble for a moment. There’s a caterpillar out there that has a taste for flesh. See that fly in the photo below? Things don’t end well for this critter. Reddit / Razuto22 The blur behind it is actually a carnivorous caterpillar that’s native to Hawaii. Reddit / Razuto22 The poor thing didn’t stand [More]
If you own a drone, you know that the more expensive ones make it very clear when they’re running out of power. The cheaper ones…well…not so much. They just tend to just drop out of the sky whenever they please. The drone owner in the video below clearly went the cheaper route, and he ultimately paid the price. His drone fell out of the sky and right into the ocean. While it was sinking to the bottom, the attached GoPro camera kept recording. A year later, the drone was recovered and the footage was posted on YouTube. The resulting video [More]
The Blue Hole near Dahab, Egypt, in the Gulf of Aqaba is one of the most dangerous underwater caves in the world. While part of the cave is explored almost daily by tourists and recreational divers, its deeper caverns are strictly off limits to all but the most skilled of professionals. Despite this restriction, every year there are at least a handful of divers who attempt to navigate to the bottom of the cave. Many of these folks get lost or become stuck and end up dead. The following video was shot by a pair of divers exploring the Blue [More]
Younger Internet users don’t know how good they have it in 2016. They’ll never know the slow, painful experience that is a dial-up connection. Aside from the excruciating sluggishness of it, there was also the horrible screeching when you finally connected to the Internet. It was terrible. So what noise could possibly be worse than the dial-up sound? How about the dial-up sound slowed down by 700%? It’s literally 700% creepier… Well, that will be the new soundtrack to my nightmares. Holy crap, that’s terrifying. I’m so happy for high-speed Internet. Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/internet-connection-from-hell/
What is it with ghosts haunting bars? It seems like half of the ghost stories I read about are set in bars and pubs. Perhaps it has something to do with bars being places of life, or maybe spirits are drawn to these haunts because of the sadness that drives people to barstools around the world. While it’s a common paranormal trend, it’s always terrifying. Take the footage below, for example. The owners of this bar in Moscow became concerned when they kept finding broken glass and toppled furniture every morning when they arrived at work. After they found bizarre [More]
Life doesn’t always work out the way you want it to. Maybe you didn’t get that promotion, or maybe, if you’re anything like Harrison Okene, the ship you were working on capsized, sunk, and left you trapped inside of a rapidly shrinking air bubble for three days. It might sound insane, but this actually happened. Okene had to survive for three days inside of a capsized boat at the bottom of the ocean before being rescued. Okene was working as a cook on a tug boat operating off the coast of Nigeria when it happened. In May of 2013, the [More]
Do you have coulrophobia? Coulrophobia is the informal term for being afraid of clowns. The reason the term coulrophobia is considered informal is because it is not listed as a specific mental disorder in the DSM-5. Still, though, the fear of clowns is very real to a lot of people. Research into the matter says that traditional clown makeup exaggerates facial features and body parts, like hands, feet, and noses. While the intention is for these things to be humorous, they often come across as sinister. Now that we have the technical definition out of the way, allow me to [More]
Despite our modern technology and interconnectivity, America is a still a nation full of surprises and rich regional mysteries. Pick a random exit on the interstate pretty much anywhere and you’re sure to discover something memorable. If you happen to be traveling through Michigan, you may want to stop in the town of Paulding to experience its ghost light first hand. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBP_ATF’); }); Yes, I said ghost light. The Paulding Light, as it’s called, is a strange light that regularly appears in a valley just outside of town. Wikipedia googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBM_BTF’); }); The bizarre beam was first [More]
If aliens are living on Earth, as many conspiracy theorists suggest, then where are they hiding? Assuming the first part of that sentence is true, the only logical place for them to hide where no one would accidentally stumble across them would be at the bottom of the ocean. I know it sounds far-fetched, but reserve your judgement until you see the following deep-sea exploration video… It features a very alien-like creature cautiously approaching a deep-sea ROV. Could it be from another world? Sadly, the chances of that fish actually being an alien are slim to none. Likely what we’re [More]
