Watching This Guy Turn Himself Into Creepy Statues Will Give You Nightmares

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DTBT_ATF’); }); Being a horror junkie, I have come across all kinds of terrifying photos and videos. Though many of them have certainly creeped me out, most haven’t actually gotten under my skin and haunted my dreams. That’s because they weren’t even half as unsettling as this freaky performance. In his work entitled, “Transfiguration,” French artist Olivier de Sagazan sculpts his face into monstrous statues that look like they came straight out of the “Silent Hill” games. When you see it for yourself, I’m sure you’ll agree with me when I say that I definitely wasn’t expecting to come away this disturbed. The sounds make it so much worse. Well, I’ll be lucky if I get any sleep after seeing that. Anyone have a night-light I can borrow? Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/terrifying-transfiguration/

These Real Haunted Hospitals Will Make You Feel Better About Not Having Healthcare.

These Real Haunted Hospitals Will Make You Feel Better About Not Having Healthcare.

Everyone keeps talking about Obamacare, but nobody seems to want to talk about the real healthcare horror: haunted hospitals. Yup! Hospitals are arguably one of the scariest places even without ghosts, and currently neither Congress nor the president are doing anything to tear these places down or at least perform some kind of exorcism. Here are some haunted hospitals that are scarier the bill for the time when you sprained your leg. 1.) Tranquille Sanatorium in British Columbia, Canada was one of the locations of the most recent A-team reboot, but the facility has a past even darker than the film’s box office record. There are rumors that a nurse was once killed by a patient there and visitors often claim the presence of celestial orbs floating around. filmthompsonnicola.com 2.) The Beechworth Lunatic Asylum in Australia is famous for how easy it was to get admitted there, requiring only two signatures. Over 9,000 […]

These Animal Skeletons Are Out Of The Closet And Running Amuck In Your Home.

These Animal Skeletons Are Out Of The Closet And Running Amuck In Your Home.

Marc Da Cunha Lopes is a French artist who loves biology and science fiction. In his series of photographs entitled, ‘Vertebrata’ the artist explores both in the coolest fashion. These skeletons, which appear to be creatures from some unexplored moon in the Guardians of The Galaxy universe, are actually just blown up skeletons of birds, monkeys, cats and other critters. He set them in abandoned households and other locations so that in Da Cunha’s mind it appears as though “they are looking for those who made them.” This is way creepier than I thought it’d be… (H/T: Wired) If your friends have ever wondered what it looks like to disturb a creepy alien monkey skeleton from its slumber, give this a share on Facebook.     Read more: http://viralnova.com/skeletons-out-of-the-closet/

20 Of The Weirdest Things People Have Ever Seen On Planes

As is true with all forms of public transportation, you’re bound to come across some bizarre things if you regularly travel by plane. It’s pretty much guaranteed that you’ll witness strange happenings and encounter people behaving in odd ways. What’s worse is that you’re stuck with them for at least a couple of hours and there’s not much you can do about it.

This Is What Happens When You Take Your Terrible Ideas On The Road.

Rules of the road? What rules? These people live on the edge when it comes to transporting themselves and their belongings. Several metric tons of fruit? No problem! Just load it onto a sedan. Furniture? Just throw it in. Other cars? Livestock? Fellow humans? The more the merrier! 1.) “But now we never have to buy fruit again! Which is good, because the car is no longer functional.” 2.) “Honey? Yeah, I’m gonna be a few minutes late. I got stuck behind a house again.” 3.) When threatened, the painted lumber bus will rear up on its hind wheels to intimidate its enemy. 4.) “Everything I buy is expensive, so naturally, I treat it with the utmost respect.” 5.) The carpool lane never specified what kinds of passengers are allowed. 6.) “Bungee cords? Bungee cords are for the weak!” 7.) “I really like what you’ve done with the place.” 8.) […]

This Old Video Is A Tutorial For One Seriously Disturbing Procedure

Brain surgery is a delicate procedure now, but back in the day, it was even more nerve-wracking. Doctors had to use tools and techniques that would be considered barbaric by today’s standards. The movement toward using more modern methods in the 1920s eventually picked up steam, but it was a slow process, as this brain surgery training film from that era illustrates. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBP_ATF’); }); It’s a little hard to follow, but here’s a transcript of the video’s text for your reference: Drilling a pin-hole through scalp and skull, 4 cm. to right of middle line, well in front of Rolandic fissure. After penetrating the skull with the grooved drill, stilette and blunt, hollow needle are inserted along the track. On reaching cavity of Lateral Ventricle, cerebrospinal fluid appears. Cisternal or Sub-Occipital puncture. Needle inserted immediately above 2nd cervical spine, pencil in patient’s ear to guide aim of needle. […]

These Hotels Are Haunted, But You Can Still Check In... If You Dare.

These Hotels Are Haunted, But You Can Still Check In… If You Dare.

The “Tower of Terror” is a popular attraction at Disney World. Its basic concept is that there was once a very successful hotel that, in the midst of its glory days, had something truly tragic happen and now ghosts lurk its halls (plus, dropping its riders from really, really high up). If that sounded enjoyable to you, you’re in luck! There are real hotels that have similar stories out there. Unlike the fictional hotel in the ride, instead of becoming crumbling shadows of their former selves, these haunted hotels are still taking guests! Check them out! 1.) The Hotel Chelsea in New York City has had some super famous guests, including Jimi Hendrix and Bob Dylan, but its INfamous for its haunts. Sid Vicious of the Sex Pistol’s girlfriend died here and she is said to appear along with Sid himself, who overdosed on heroin shortly after her death. strawberige.com 2.) […]

These Products Show Why Google Will One Day Become Our Supreme Overlords.

Here’s one word that most people know, all over the world: Google. Google is probably one of the most powerful companies that currently exists. Luckily, they seem to use most of their data-collecting powers for good (unlike Time Warner or Comcast). Google is so powerful, though, it makes you wonder… What if there was an evil, Hydra-like coup within Google? What if the bad guys controlled Google? As it turns out, that might already be happening. The company has been pushing some seriously advanced, but shady, projects through the works. If they start attaching laser beams to sharks, it’ll be time to worry. Google built these creepy barges on the San Francisco bay. They say they are possibly going to be used for “interactive learning centers”, but they didn’t say much more. The Google owned Motorola has invested in a product that will be “coupling an electronic skin tattoo to […]

These 15 Places Are Dead Last At Various Things… Poor Towns.

When I was a kid, my dad would say that no matter how good you are, there is always someone better. Apparently the opposite is also true! No matter how bad you think you are at singing, you can always type in “bad singers” on Youtube and you’re bound to find someone worse than you (example: Paris Hilton). Compiled mostly from statistics at city-data.com, here is a list of whole cities and countries that are the absolute worst at something. 1.) Orange County, VT is the worst in America at trying to quit smoking. wikipedia 2.) Youngstown, OH is the worst at preventing arsonists from burning the city down. wikipedia 3.)

That being said, there are some that are a crazy cut above the rest. Some reasons killers give for their crimes don’t make sense in the slightest and prove that they are absolutely insane.

The Future Of Space Isn't NASA... And That's Not A Bad Thing.

The Future Of Space Isn’t NASA… And That’s Not A Bad Thing.

Space: it’s the final frontier. Space has long been exclusively navigated by the world’s most well-off nations (U.S and the Soviet Union) but the future of space exploration seems to be in the hands of private companies. Since it will be privately funded, CEOs will be able to determine the flight paths (and the style.) These guys are seriously ambitious. Here are some of the craziest projects in the works from privately funded space programs: 1.) Check in to the Space Hotel: Robert Bigelow, owner of the hotel chain, Budget Suites of America, has also founded Bigelow Aerospace. It aims to facilitate travel destinations in space. 1565today.com 2.) A Giant Solar Generator: The Shimuzu Corporation is planning on building a mega-scale solar generator on the moon’s surface.

These 10 CGI Works Of Art Are Just Too Creepy To Handle

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DTBT_ATF’); }); Computer-generated imagery, or CGI, is an awesome technology that has allowed us to create amazingly realistic simulations in movies, video games, and more. But while CGI enables us to produce cool effects, it can also inspire some people to bring the dark scenes in their heads to life. Let’s just say that these scenes, some of which you can see below, are completely freaky. Prepare yourselves, because we’re about to take a journey down the rabbit hole. 1.

9 Of The Weirdest Things Named After Famous Celebrities.

9 Of The Weirdest Things Named After Famous Celebrities.

As if celebrities didn’t have inflated egos already with their millions of dollars and motion pictures and stuff, turns out that when you become a superstar people are also compelled to name things after you!  Here are some of the weirdest things we could find that are named after celebrities. JEALOUS. This spider is called “Calponia harrisonfordi” and is named after the Indiana Jones star which is cool, but I kinda wish it was a snake. Lady GaGa has a whole genus of ferns named after her. The DNA sequence of these ferns is actually guanine, adenine, guanine, adenine (g-a-g-a). Same DNA but born this way! Johnny Depp has a 500 million year old fossil named after him because its lobster claws resemble those of Edward Scissorhands. In 2006 California passed ‘Tom Cruise Law’ which prohibits the sale of diagnostic ultrasounds to anyone except appropriately licensed clinicians. Apparently Tom Cruise […]

Here's Why You Always Show Up Early For Your Flight...This Guy Is Crazy

Here’s Why You Always Show Up Early For Your Flight…This Guy Is Crazy

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DTBT_ATF’); }); Most airports and airlines suggest that you arrive at least two hours before your scheduled flight. This ensures that you’ll have enough time to get your boarding pass, go through security, and find your gate. Two hours might seem excessive, but it’s always better to be a little early than it is to be late, especially when it comes to air travel. If you miss your flight, there’s not a whole lot that anyone can do about it. There’s no way to get on the plane once the doors have closed…unless you happen to be very motivated and are okay with breaking several laws to do so, that is. The guy in the video below, who jumped from a jet bridge and ran across the tarmac to catch his flight from Madrid to Gran Canaria, Spain, happens to be that kind of person. In case you’re […]

These 12 Real Animal Hybrids Seem Too Cool To Exist. But They Do.

These 12 Real Animal Hybrids Seem Too Cool To Exist. But They Do.

Hybrid animals may sound like science fiction, but they’re not. Hybrids are typically the topic of my own secret dreams. Said dreams usually revolve around owning a gorilladillo (a cross between a gorilla and an armadillo). Apparently, I might be closer to achieving that goal than I thought. You wouldn’t think that the animals below are real, but there are many living examples of such creatures. Unfortunately, most (not all) hybrids end up being sterile so they cannot be bred even further. That doesn’t mean we can’t clone an army of Ligers, though! 1.) As was foretold by the prophet Napoleon Dynamite, a liger is a cross between a lion and a tiger. It’s Napoleon’s favorite animal because, as he claims, “it’s bred for its skills in magic.” flickr 2.) The sheep-goat is a cross between a sheep and a goat. It was probably made as a concession of peace in the […]

Of course, many didn’t agree with that change at the time, which isn’t very surprising. However, it might shock you to see just how many people actually still believe this. A poll was created recently on Debate.org, asking whether women should be allowed to vote. Almost half of the respondents say no, and an alarming number of the comments are so ridiculous that your head might just explode if you happen to be a woman. 1. “Heterosexual women are too emotional to vote. Women, for the better parts of their days, live in a fantasy world and whichever candidate makes them ‘feel’ good at the current moment will get […]

Here’s Photo Evidence That The Matrix Is Real… And This Isn’t Reality.

If you haven’t seen the sci-fi action movie juggernaut that is The Matrix (I mean, it’s only been out for 15 years now), the basic concept is this: The world as we know it is a computer program designed by a bionic race of robot monsters to lull humans into a dream so they can harbor their energy like a battery. … if that’s too confusing for those who aren’t science fiction buffs, don’t worry. Basically, imagine if your entire world was just a computer program. The movie claims that any instance of déjà vu is just a “glitch in the Matrix.” Here are some pictures that prove that we ARE in the Matrix and our machine overloads think we wouldn’t notice. Or maybe these were just crazy coincidences. Either way? WHOA. The program did not properly render these trees. imgur Or this cloud. imgur *double take* imgur Yeah that’s not […]

WTF? Writer says skip the movie ‘Fury’ — unless ‘you’re a fascist’

http://twitter.com/#!/jtLOL/status/520624841582342144 Writer Noah Gittell is not impressed with the new Brad Pitt movie, “Fury,” about a U.S Army tank crew fighting in Germany during the closing weeks of WWII: FURY is the most sadistic, jingoistic, and militaristic movie I've seen in a long time. Tarantino-levels of violence with none of the wit. — Noah Gittell (@ReelChanger) October 10, 2014 Newsflash: maybe a movie that attempts to accurately depict WWII might not be “witty.” Now here is the stupidest thing you’ll read today: @ReelChanger Doesn't sound good. Recommend seeing it? — Courtney Boyce (@BoyceCourtney) October 10, 2014 @BoyceCourtney Not unless you're a fascist! — Noah Gittell (@ReelChanger) October 10, 2014 WTF.
