When Your UFO Is Broken Down, There's Only One Way To Travel

When Your UFO Is Broken Down, There’s Only One Way To Travel

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DTAT_ATF’); }); If you’re a UFO lover like myself, then you’ve probably at one point or another considered the possibility that aliens are already here on Earth, living among us. While I wish I could say I have the answer to that quandry in this article, I do have a compelling piece of evidence…well, sort of. Earlier this month, the following video was uploaded to YouTube. In it, a flatbed truck is hauling something that looks a heck of a lot like a traditional flying saucer. Check it out for yourself below. (via Unexplained Mysteries) Of course, my gut reaction is to say that this is simply a unique-looking piece of construction material. However, there is that old saying that the best place to do something secretive is out in the open, so maybe it could be a real UFO. Who knows? Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/ufo-truck/

Some Of Your Favorite Horror Movies Were Inspired By Real Events

Everyone loves horror movies, especially around this time of year. I mean, who doesn’t love a good fright every once in a while? It makes you feel alive (and thankful that you are safe and sound in your own home). While most horror plots seem outlandish, more of them are inspired by true stories than you might think. Want to see if your favorite scary movie is based on real events? Then check out the video below. (via Laughing Squid) I didn’t think it was possible for those movies to be any scarier, but I have a whole new appreciation for them now. I don’t think I’ll be sleeping tonight.

An Alleged Murderer Left His Mic On In The Bathroom  What He Said Is Chilling

An Alleged Murderer Left His Mic On In The Bathroom What He Said Is Chilling

WARNING: spoilers ahead! As part of the holy trinity of modern true-crime stories along with Serial and Making a Murder, The Jinx is a documentary that follows Robert Durst, an extremely wealthy real estate heir to a New York City mogul and accused murderer of three…possibly more. The documentary is well worth a watch, but if you don’t feel like spending six hours with an alleged serial killer, the insanely gripping last two minutes of the final episode may be the most important scene in the series…and of the true-crime genre. The premise sounds almost comical — Durst excuses himself to the bathroom and begins talking to himself, forgetting his microphone is on. But what he says while he’s in there isn’t funny at all. The day before this episode aired, Durst was arrested for first-degree murder. He is currently being held in federal prison, awaiting his trial for the […]

This Plane Crash Was Tragic, But The Cockpit Recording Is Even More Horrifying

This Plane Crash Was Tragic, But The Cockpit Recording Is Even More Horrifying

Statistically speaking, flying is the safest way to travel. Still, many of us live in constant fear of the possibility of a plane crash. There were probably a few folks aboard Western Airlines Flight 2605 feeling the exact same way when it crashed while approaching Mexico City in 1979. The crash occurred after the pilots made a mistake and landed the plane on a runway that was closed for maintenance. Even more tragic is that the pilots realized their mistake in the final moments before impact. However, their fate was sealed when one of the plane’s wheels struck a truck that was parked on the runway. Their final seconds were captured in a shocking cockpit recording that was recovered after the crash. Consider yourself warned, because this is pretty gut-wrenching stuff. It’s amazing how disturbing a 28-second recording can be. The McDonnell Douglas DC-10 crashed at Mexico City’s Benito Juarez […]

Nutella Lovers Beware! There's Some Gross Stuff Hiding In Your Hazelnut Spread

Nutella Lovers Beware! There’s Some Gross Stuff Hiding In Your Hazelnut Spread

After seeing some misleading advertisements about the ingredients in Nutella, one YouTuber decided to conduct an experiment. He saw on the jar that one of the main ingredients in Nutella is palm oil, which is not healthy in any way, shape, or form. For that reason, he sat a jar of Nutella in a hot car that reached about 140 degrees in order to separate the oil from the spread and show just how much is hiding in each bottle. He let the jar sit for more than eight hours. Wait until you see how much oil he poured out after the fact.

When the media tries to interview Janet and her sister, she becomes possessed by an angry entity who uses her to speak.

A UFO Spotted In This Video Might Explain Last Week's SpaceX Rocket Explosion

A UFO Spotted In This Video Might Explain Last Week’s SpaceX Rocket Explosion

Last week, the world was shocked when a rocket from Elon Musk’s famed private space flight company SpaceX exploded on the launch pad at Cape Canaveral during a test. The explosion (which was technically a fast-moving fire, according to Musk) also destroyed the rocket’s most precious cargo, Facebook’s first satellite. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBP_ATF’); }); While the exact cause of the explosion is still being investigated, hawk-eyed conspiracy theorists have quite a novel explanation.

Does Your College Kid Love Instant Ramen? You Should Show Them This

Does Your College Kid Love Instant Ramen? You Should Show Them This

When you’re in a pinch and need a quick and easy dinner option, you might turn to instant noodles like ramen. While these inexpensive noodles have become a staple in college cuisine, they’re not exactly something that many would deem a healthy meal. Just like any other highly processed food, they can be full of salt and other ingredients that have been linked to various medical problems and conditions. I was never the biggest fan of ramen noodles during my time at college, and now that I’ve read about the heath risks that they carry with them, I definitely won’t be putting them in my shopping cart anytime soon. Ramen noodles do not digest like most foods. In the video below, you can see the noodles sitting in the stomach hours after being consumed. This can spell trouble for the digestive system, which is forced to work overtime to try […]

They Managed To Enter The World's Only Floating McDonald's...And It Was Creepy AF

They Managed To Enter The World’s Only Floating McDonald’s…And It Was Creepy AF

In 1986, the World Exposition on Transportation and Communication (aka Expo 86) was held in Vancouver, British Columbia, and McDonald’s was determined to have the best exhibit. Thus the “McBarge” was built on the waters of False Creek. The world’s second floating McDonald’s restaurant was supposed to be the centerpiece of waterfront development and new technologies in the area. Unfortunately, the McBarge never became as popular as its creators had hoped, and has since been abandoned. But luckily, through a strange Canadian maritime law loophole, the guys at Vancouver’s Worst Ghost Hunters gained access and filmed what’s left of it. As a guy who gets seasick inanely easy, the combination of being out on the water and devouring fast food doesn’t exactly entice me, so I can see why this place closed down. Since the filming, the barge was moved to Maple Ridge, British Columbia, where it was refit. Apparently, […]

Is there a more hated member of the animal kingdom than wasps? Sure, there are some insects that are more feared (spiders, scorpions, etc.), but talk to anyone about wasps and it’s very unlikely you’ll hear anything even slightly supportive of them. If you’re like most people, you already hate these buggers…a fact which will make the following video of a researcher excavating a giant wasp’s nest in New Zealand entirely terrifying.

What Thomas Edison Did To Show The World The Dangers Of Electricity Is Insane

What Thomas Edison Did To Show The World The Dangers Of Electricity Is Insane

Around the turn of the century, the United States was locked in an ideological battle over the future of the nation’s power grid. The two sides dealt with direct currents and alternating currents. While both forms of power deliver electricity, they do so differently. Thomas Edison was a firm believer in the direct current, while George Westinghouse and Nicola Tesla were proponents of using the alternating current. As a way to discredit his competitors, Edison held several public events during which he attempted to show the supposed dangers of using an alternating current. He did this by electrocuting and killing a number of animals with the technology. The biggest and most controversial of these events was held on Coney Island in New York City back in 1903. At this event, Edison electrocuted and killed a 36-year-old circus elephant by the name of Topsy. Cameras were rolling so that future generations […]

46 Years Ago, The National Guard Shot And Killed 4 Kent State Students

On May 4, 1970, the realities of the Vietnam War reached Kent State University in Kent, Ohio. Students were protesting the war as a result of President Nixon’s declaration of the United States’ intention to attack Viet Cong. More than 1,000 protestors and demonstrators were at the university campus. According to Kent State, the protests started peacefully. However, once the young protestors clashed with the police, violence ensued. Getty Images / Universal History Archive / Contributor The National Guard was called in on May 2. Although the university attempted to ban it, a large rally was held on May 4 at noon. Approximately 3,000 people attended the demonstration and filled the commons area. The National Guard dispatched about 100 armed guardsmen. When the demonstrators were ordered to disperse, they began throwing rocks at the National Guard. The protestors moved toward Blanket Hill.

This Satanic Priest Talking About His Religion Makes A Surprising Amount Of Sense

This Satanic Priest Talking About His Religion Makes A Surprising Amount Of Sense

Of all the world’s religions, Satanism is probably the most misunderstood. For many, it’s the most reviled because its central tenets run counter to most forms of Christianity. Because of this, most people don’t give Satanists the time of day and simply dismiss them as being evil crazies. However, parts of this belief system make sense. Anton LaVey (pictured below) founded the modern Church of Satan that is the dominant Satanic organization today. YouTube / Toxic Thrash Metal As a former circus performer, LaVey knew how to put on a show to deliver his message effectively. This led to LaVey giving many interviews about his beliefs before his death in 1997. YouTube / Toxic Thrash Metal In these interviews, LaVey talks about why his version of Satanism is practically humanism. “No religion had been based on man’s carnal needs of his fleshly pursuits,” said LaVey in one interview. He goes […]

The final frontier on Earth is our vast and somewhat unexplored ocean’s depths.

To Attract Customers, Chinese Restaurants Were Adding More Than MSG To Their Food

To Attract Customers, Chinese Restaurants Were Adding More Than MSG To Their Food

Nowadays, it seems restaurant owners and chefs will do just about anything to distinguish themselves from the establishment next door. And while that might normally mean offering a free drink if you check in on Foursquare, in China, it’s a bit more extreme than that… Recently, 35 popular Chinese restaurants were shut down for adding ground poppy powder to their dishes. While that might not sound like a big deal, what you don’t realize is that the powder is highly addictive and is used in the creation of opium, morphine, heroin, and codeine. The poppy powder they were using is extremely hard to detect when cooked correctly, which is why the restaurants had been getting away with it for so long. (via AnonHQ) Well, that’s one way to get people to keep coming back to your restaurant. Another way? COOK GOOD FOOD! Novel idea, I know. Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/chinese-food-msg/

If you’re not taking steps to ensure no bodily harm comes to you or those around you, then that’s just plain dumb. For example, one thing you should never do when building something is use your own hand as a hammer. I wish this was just a hypothetical, but sadly, it’s not, as you can see in the video below. It’s equal parts horrifying and impressive. Well that’s going to leave a mark. Hopefully he has really good health insurance and his employer is all paid up on their premiums!

When He Bit Down Into A Chocolate Egg, He Tasted This Nastiness

When He Bit Down Into A Chocolate Egg, He Tasted This Nastiness

Growing up with two brothers, I’ve been pranked countless times for their amusement. After having bugs thrown on me and finding gross things in my food on a regular basis, I’ve become very wary of anything my siblings do around me. If only this man was as cautious about his friends… These guys thought it would be funny to prank him, so they gave him what he thought was a delicious chocolate egg to enjoy. However, he quickly realized that his Kinder Surprise was NOT a cute toy in a plastic shell when he bit down. He had to know that they were doing something weird. Read More: This Family Played The Funniest Thanksgiving Prank On Their Gullible Daughter This is why it’s probably not a good idea to bite into anything your friends randomly hand you. They really can’t be trusted. Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/kinder-egg-prank/

Woman Appears To Be Attacked By Violent Ghost In One Seriously Creepy Video

Woman Appears To Be Attacked By Violent Ghost In One Seriously Creepy Video

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DTBT_ATF’); }); I can’t make it through a single horror movie. The last time I watched one, I was only a teenager and I spent the next three days (and nights) with all of the lights on in my house. But ironically, I love ghosts. While all the cool kids were out partying in college, my friends and I would sit down with a bottle of wine and watch “Ghost Adventures.” Something about the absurdity of yelling at every sound in a creaky old house is exciting, and the possibility that they could come across something truly paranormal just one time was intoxicating (or maybe that was just the wine). But nothing they showed on TV ever matched the level of creepy in the following video.

What Astronauts Heard On The Moon Is Incredibly Eerie -- Is This For Real?

What Astronauts Heard On The Moon Is Incredibly Eerie — Is This For Real?

Going to the moon is a goal for almost every astronaut, and in the late 1960s, humans accomplished that goal for the first time. It was a monumental technological breakthrough. Many people thought that we would never do it, but in the heat of the Cold War, America made it to the moon. On our journeys since, some irregularities have occurred. Take these sounds, for example. Bizarre noises were heard on the dark side of the moon, and as you’ll hear in the video below, they were absolutely chilling. (via Unexplained Mysteries) If that doesn’t give you the willies, I don’t know what will. I have to hand it to those brave astronauts for going up there. Space travel is clearly creepy.

This Video Of Giant Wasps Destroying A Honey Bee Colony Is Heartbreaking

This Video Of Giant Wasps Destroying A Honey Bee Colony Is Heartbreaking

While it’s tempting to lump all hornets together under “the absolute worst“insect category, there is one species that stands above the rest — the giant Japanese hornet. These things are massive, merciless killing machines. They primarily prey on colonies of docile Japanese bees, eating their honey and larvae. Incredibly enough, it only takes a handful of these suckers to wipe out an entire honey bee colony — a sad fact that beekeeper Sakamoto Ryouta learned back in 2014. Luckily, he had already set a trap for the giant hornets, but it still wasn’t enough to stop the attack. Those poor honey bees… Considering that without honey bees, we could lose “70 of the around 100 crop species that feed 90% of the world,” these hornets are effectively killing our food source. Can’t we all just get along?! Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/hornet-attack/

When A Woman Is Addicted To Drugs, Something Terrible Happens To Her Newborn

When A Woman Is Addicted To Drugs, Something Terrible Happens To Her Newborn

When a woman is pregnant, it is important for her to eat healthily so that her baby comes out of the womb in great condition. A mother’s diet while pregnant directly affects the health of her baby. As such, when a woman puts terrible things in her body, it can be highly detrimental to her unborn child. Women who continue to drink alcohol, smoke cigarettes, and use drugs during their pregnancies can expect complications to arise. When this video was posted online, people got to see those disastrous effects for themselves. This baby’s mother used heroin throughout the duration of her pregnancy, so her baby became addicted in the womb. This disturbing footage captures what withdrawal symptoms are like for infants who suffer from Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS). (via Reddit) This is a truly heartbreaking sight, and it should be a lesson to mothers everywhere. Don’t use drugs while you’re […]

Child marriage is defined by UNICEF as “both formal marriages and informal unions in which a girl or boy lives with a partner as if married before the age of 18. An informal union is one in which a couple live together for some time, intending to have a lasting relationship, but do not have a formal civil or religious ceremony.” Usually, the child in question is a girl, and it’s true that poverty and religious tradition play into whether or not it’s legal or acceptable in any given country. The countries with the highest observed rates of child marriages below the age of 18 are Niger, Chad, Mali, Bangladesh, Guinea, and the […]

A Bear Rescued From A Bile Farm Jumps For Joy Over Newfound Freedom

A Bear Rescued From A Bile Farm Jumps For Joy Over Newfound Freedom

Around the world, people still do horrible things to animals all in the name of “medicine.” Whether it’s killing rhinos for their horns or using rattlesnakes and their venom, the practices are disturbing, especially when you consider the lack of scientific evidence to support the old-world beliefs. But perhaps one of the meanest and cruelest practices is illegally keeping bears in cages to harvest their bile. Stuck inside cages smaller than your closet for years at a time, the beautiful beasts suffer countless health issues, some that will one day even kill them. That’s why rescue workers search out these bear bile farms year-round in an effort to save the animals’ lives and move them somewhere safe. This is the reality of far too many bears around the world. YouTube / NatGeoWild Animals Asia, in particular, is extremely focused on ending the horrid and inhumane practice. And when they had […]

You Don't Want To Be Out On This Lake Right Now If You Can Help It

You Don’t Want To Be Out On This Lake Right Now If You Can Help It

Waterspouts can be pretty dangerous things if you happen to be out on the water when one forms. Luckily, they are rarities in most places. However, Qinghai Lake in China’s Qinghai Province is not most places. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBP_ATF’); }); Earlier this week, tourists spotted not just one, but three waterspouts forming simultaneously on the surface of the lake. “Water tornados,” as some call them, are formed by a convection current of warm and cold air over a body of water. While three waterspouts might seem insane, it’s not actually the most that Qinghai Lake has seen. Back in 2014, onlookers saw nine simultaneous waterspouts spring up on a particularly stormy day. That’s pure nightmare fuel, folks. And they’re not all that uncommon elsewhere, either.

This Snake Somehow Is Still Alive 16 Hours After Losing Its Head

This Snake Somehow Is Still Alive 16 Hours After Losing Its Head

When you’re a hunter who kills and cooks your own food, the last thing you expect is for your catch to come back to life at some point during the cooking process. That goes double if you happen to be into hunting and cooking rattlesnakes. Sadly, this is a thing that actually happens sometimes. Take, for example, what happened to the guy in this video. He caught a couple of rattlesnakes and was preparing to cook them when one seemingly came back to life…despite being headless and skinless. Mildly NSFW, especially if you’re about to eat lunch. (via Reddit) When this happens with dead animals, it’s usually because someone put salt on them, which can make the nerve endings fire and cause twitching. However, according to the video description, there was no salt or seasoning on the snake when it started moving. On top of that, what this thing did […]
