Bad News: These 25 Things Will Probably Kill You. Watch Out For #7… Every Single Day.

Entertainment
As humans, we have to accept that at some point, we will exit this mortal coil. Dying is a certainty. However, what isn't certain is how we will die. Chances are, one of these 25 things on this list will kill you. The odds of you dying by dog bite, bee sting, flood or gunshot wound is a lot higher than you may initially think. After going through this list, you may just be inspired to stay indoors for the rest of your life (but you'll still want to watch out for #7). 1.) Fireworks: About 10,000 people in the US are admitted into ERs due to firework-related injuries annually. Your chance of death is 1-in-615,488. 2.) Tsunami: It varies on your location, but your chance of death is 1-in-500,000. ...
Taxidermy Is Already Creepy Enough Without These 30 Bizarre Creations

Taxidermy Is Already Creepy Enough Without These 30 Bizarre Creations

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DTBT_ATF'); }); I don't like taxidermy one bit -- it really freaks me out. Just knowing that the stuffed creatures were once living, breathing animals is very unsettling to me. No matter how accurately portrayed they are, they are still pretty disturbing. It makes me imagine the same thing happening to me when I die, and that's a horrifying mental image. But the critters you're about to see are on an entirely different level -- and not in a good way. They'll make you wonder if the people who made them have ever seen real animals at all. Prepare yourselves. This isn't going to be pretty. 1. This is just plain terrifying. 2. Wait -- just kidding. THIS is. 3. Imagine waking up to thi...

What Happened In This Town Full Of ‘Witches’ Was Absolutely Insane

Blog
The city of Triora, Italy, is as beautiful as a painting. Tourists flock there from all over the world each year to marvel at the stunning region's medieval architecture and picturesque hillsides. Hidden within the confines of this fairytale city, however, is a history of violence and paranoia that makes the Salem witch trials seem like child's play. In 1587, particularly bad weather led to a massive crop failure and subsequent famine. Instead of blaming the climate, however, townspeople decided to blame the presence of witches. Wikipedia The local government called in the Inquisitor of Genoa and Albenga, along with Priest Girolamo del Pozzo, in order to substantiate the city's claims of witchcraft...and that's exactly what they did. ...

In Skopje, Macedonia at Goce Delchev University, students are forced to live in conditions that would be unsuitable for even prison inmates. The buildings are covered in mold and filth. They are falling apart, but if the students want to receive an education they must go here. Goce Delchev University is even considered the second best state school in the country, but the conditions at the Skopje dorms are so bad, the education doesn't even seem worth it. This large dormitory houses 1,200+ students every year. It is the biggest student dormitory in the country. Imgur The conditions inside are sub-human. Leaking pipes are a common occurrence everywhere. Imgur "...

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DTBT_ATF'); }); Scary stories don't always have to be hundreds of pages long. The more skilled the writer is, the easier it is for them to convey the essence of the story in fewer words. And when I say "short stories," I'm not talking about those that are several pages or even several paragraphs long. I'm talking about two-sentence tales. Don't believe me? See how well you're able to sleep tonight after reading through these truncated nightmares. 1. "It sat on my shelf with thoughtless porcelain eyes and the prettiest pink doll dress I could find.

10 Of The Most Insane Things People Do In The Name Of Beauty

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DTBT_ATF'); }); What's the craziest thing you've ever done for beauty? Going to bizarre lengths to look younger, fresher, and more vibrant is nothing new. For centuries women (and men) have searched for the secret to eternal youth. In Ancient Rome, elite women used the sweat and dead skin cells of gladiators who survived their battles as face cream. It's a vomit-inducing thought, but are we really much better today? Here are 10 of the most insane things people are doing for beauty right now. We'll let you be the judge. 1.

This Bizarre Medical Condition Forces Some People To Walk On All Fours

Blog
Congenital genu recurvatum, or knee hyperextension, is a rare condition that occurs once in every 100,000 live births. People with this condition, which appears more often in women, are born with a deformity in their knee joints. Their kneecaps are dislocated to the side, causing them to bend backwards to varying degrees. While some are still able to walk upright, others are forced to use their hands as an extra pair of feet. The first documented accounts of the deformity go back to the early 1800s. In 1886, a girl named Ella Harper was featured in a circus and called "The Camel Girl" because she walked on all fours. Wikipedia The condition has been associated with injur...
When You Put The Wrong Batteries In A Talking Toy, Things Can Get Really Creepy

When You Put The Wrong Batteries In A Talking Toy, Things Can Get Really Creepy

Blog
Making sure you have the right batteries for your devices is just common sense. Using the wrong batteries can easily damage things, especially if they're too powerful for the gadget in question (I learned this the hard way). Using less powerful batteries, while not necessarily destructive, can lead to equally odd malfunctions. Take, for example, the clown toy in the video below. Using a double A battery instead of a C turned this lovable toy into something demonic. (source: whymarshmallow)Someone call an exorcist! That toy is possessed. I would lock that thing in the closet until it stopped talking. Better yet, I'd just burn it in the yard. Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/bad-batteries/

Our lives are unique journeys, but so are our deaths. Every human life is like a snowflake, never to be repeated or copied in any way. No one can say they ever see their deaths coming, but it would have been impossible for these 22 people to even guess how it would happen for them. Some of these left me speechless. 1.) A Russian woman, Fagilyu Mukhametzyanov, died of a heart attack while at her own funeral, because doctors wrongly declared her deceased. 2.) A new bride, Maria Pantazopoulos, from Montreal drowned to death at her wedding photo shoot, when she fell into a river. 3.) A man, David Pendleton, after losing his wife, was fatally shot to death by his own burial plot. ...

On every iPhone, there is a simple feature that allows you to take panoramic photos. The camera setting works by taking a picture while you move your camera from left to right. Most of the time, it works like a charm. However, sometimes whatever you're taking a picture of will move. Or maybe your hand will slip a little during the recording process. When that happens, the camera will glitch... resulting in a weird, photographic nightmare. 1.) Everything about this is so wrong. 2.) Ew. Ew. Ew. 3.) I'm dreaming this, right? 4.) Nope. Nope. 5.)
