A building collapsed in Nairobi, Kenya, last week, leaving 23 people dead and 93 missing. Rescuers have been working tirelessly since the moment they stepped onto the horrific scene. Just as they were giving up hope on May 3, however, the team came across a six-month-old baby in the rubble. Miraculously, the child had no significant injuries and only needed treatment for dehydration, which she received immediately. Her name is Dealeryn Saisi Wasike, and her parents could not believe their eyes when they saw that their little one was alive and well after such an awful ordeal. The baby not [More]
The Brazilian wandering spider is one of the world’s deadliest arachnids. It also happens to be fairly aggressive and will go out of its way to bite you if you disturb it. The tarantula hawk — which is actually a wasp — is similar to the wandering spider in that they both deliver extremely painful bites/stings. Very rarely do the two ever meet, but anything is possible, and in the following video, these deadly creatures come across one another in the wild. Normally, tarantula hawks hunt tarantulas, so this one must have thought the Brazilian wandering spider would be as [More]
While on a whale watching trip off Mexico’s Baja Peninsula, a group of tourists managed to witness an incredible sight. It happened after a friendly seal swam up to their boat, something that is quite common during marine life tours, but what left them stunned with amazement is what the seal decided to do all of a sudden. The playful little guy went for a ride on the back of a whale, using his massive body as a real, live surfboard! Seems like he’s having a whale of a time. Definitely gets my seal of approval. Sorry, had to say [More]
The human brain is the most complex organ of any species, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be easily tricked. In the following video, you’ll be asked to stare at the black dot in the center of a photo of a castle. If you keep staring at the dot after the false color image has gone away, and the black-and-white photo returns, you’ll be surprised to see the castle in full color (even though it isn’t)! According to Metro, the illusion occurs because staring at the false color desensitizes the cone cells responsible for color, so when the black-and-white image [More]
googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DTBT_ATF’); }); For years, people around the world have claimed to hear creepy noises coming from the sky. While some say they are simply changes in atmospheric pressure, others take them as a sign of government conspiracy, aliens, or even the apocalypse. The most recent video comes from Slovakia, where YouTuber Martin Mikuaš captured some truly unsettling noises on October 15, 2016. Listen to the strange sounds for yourself. Personally, I’ve never heard anything like them. Read More: Some People Think These Noises In Jerusalem Mean That The End Is Near For Us Do you think these noises [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]
When you are born blind, you are faced with an incredible disadvantage. As much as we like to think that we live in an accessible world, life is unimaginably difficult for people who have to get through life without their eyesight. But even if they can’t see, blind people come up with new ways to perceive the world around them with the help of their other senses. Take this man, for example. Watch what happens when he’s asked to draw things based on what he thinks they look like. What an amazing experiment. Seeing how blind people learn to identify [More]
googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DTAT_ATF’); }); The connection between twins is remarkable, if not a bit strange. Stories of twin telepathy have circulated the internet for years, from sharing pain to sensing each other from hundreds of miles away. Some of them even go as far as to consider themselves to be one person rather than two, like 42-year-old identical twins Paula and Bridgette Powers. The Australian women have been living together all of their lives, sharing a room, dressing alike, and creepily enough, speaking in unison. They say that it just comes naturally to them, but is it bizarre twin telepathy [More]
googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DTAT_ATF’); }); There’s not a bug spray on the planet that’ll make me feel safe from this thing. The world’s largest beetle, otherwise known as Dynastes hercules, is beyond creepy. Almost the size of a human fist, not only does it have a needle-like nose, but this sucker can fly. Should you come across one of these, we suggest that you run like the wind…unlike the person in this video. Sufficiently creeped out yet? Thought so. Everything is awful and life is full of pain!

When kids misbehave, parents sometimes temporarily take away something they enjoy but don’t necessarily need. Video games, ice cream, their cellphones…but when 10-year-old Johnathan James did something his parents disapproved of, they took this idea to a horrific level, depriving the boy of water for five days. While that might seem ridiculous already, when you consider that our bodies are made up of more than 60% water and we need it to function, the reality of just how terrible this “punishment” was sets in. Watch this shocking news report by CNN, including a heartbreaking interview with Johnathan’s twin brother, who [More]
