Taxidermy Is Already Creepy Enough Without These 30 Bizarre Creations

Taxidermy Is Already Creepy Enough Without These 30 Bizarre Creations

Blog
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. ...

I Didn’t Think It Was Possible, But These 2-Sentence Horror Stories Are Too Scary

Blog
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.

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/

What Gordon Ramsay Ate In Vietnam Is Insanely Disturbing…What Did It Taste Like?

Blog
Gordon Ramsay has earned himself a reputation as a celebrity chef and with an adventurous palate. While this makes for great entertainment for us viewers, it doesn't always look so pleasant for Ramsay. Take this clip from the 2011 season of his show, "Gordon's Great Escape."

Footage Of This Cigar-Shaped UFO Over Manchester Is Incredibly Clear, And So Freaky

Blog
Why is it that whenever anyone spots a UFO, their camera churns out a grainy video? It must be a law of physics that we've yet to discover. At any rate, the video below is not one of those. In fact, it's startlingly clear.This cigar-shaped object was spotted on a clear day over Manchester, England, back in 2011. The person filming was able to zoom in pretty tightly on the bizarre object. They were even able to make out some details. According to the video description, the object hovered for about 40 minutes before ascending out of sight. That looks pretty real to me! While I want to shout from the rooftops that we finally have an authentic UFO video, it's important not to jump to any conclusions. In fact, because the video is so clear, we need to consider the possibility of it being...

She’s Only 7 Years Old But Already Might Be Considered Indestructible

Blog
Have you ever wondered how cool (or is it horrifying?) the world might be if superheroes actually existed? As a proud nerd, this is something I contemplate often. Ultimately, though, it's a futile line of thinking, because superheroes just don't exist...right? If the story of seven-year-old Olivia Farnsworth is to be believed, maybe superheroes are a lot closer to reality than we all thought... Farnsworth (pictured below) was only nine months old when her mother, Niki Trepak, noticed she was different. Facebook / Niki Trepak Trepak says it was around this time that her daughter stopped napping completely, and only seemed to need a couple of hours of sleep each night. It went on like that for quite a while. "I’ll always remember when she was ...
