This Guy Went Exploring In An Old Psychiatric Ward And Found Disturbing Records

It’s no secret that mental health care in North America used to be something very close to torture for those who found themselves in the system. Luckily, governments realized this in the 1980s and ’90s and began to implement reforms and shutter abusive facilities. As a result, many former psychiatric facilities throughout Canada and the United States are easy pickings for daring urban explorers. One explorer and photographer by the handle of Freaktography recently explored one of […]

Someone Is Putting LED Lights On These Statues…The Results Are Terrifying

When it comes to exploring old European cities, some of the creepiest things about them are the old statues that seem to be on every corner. They look even worse when the sun goes down. Depending on the city, it’s entirely possible that the history behind many of these statues has been lost, which really only makes them creepier. Well, a few years ago, a prankster with a twisted sense of humor decided that it would be […]

If You’re Visiting Yellowstone This Summer, Please Be Careful Around Hot Springs

Yellowstone National Park is one of America’s most spectacular treasures. And the park’s hot springs draw huge crowds every year. One wrong move near one of these springs, however, and your life could end in the blink of an eye. That’s why nearby paths are clearly marked and labeled. Despite all the warning signs, tourists still wander too close to these scalding attractions. Their latest victim was 23-year-old Colin Nathaniel Scott from Portland, Oregon. Scott was walking […]

Did The U.S. Government Poke A Hole In Space And Time? Some Say Yes

Have you heard of the Montauk Project? For those who aren’t familiar with it, it is a supposed secret government project with the aim of facilitating time travel and ways for us to travel between dimensions. Some of the stories (all of them unconfirmed) about the Montauk Project became the basis for Netflix’s most recent smash hit, “Stranger Things.” googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBP_ATF’); }); While the conspiracy theory of the Montauk Project breaks down into many different individual […]

Just When You Thought It Was Safe To Ride Your Dirt Bike On The Train Tracks…

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DTAT_ATF’); }); Remember in school when adults would tell you not to play near train tracks? They did this for a reason: Because trains can be really dangerous if you’re not riding them. (That should go without saying, by the way.) Even though trains are not as popular as they used to be, this piece of advice still holds true. It actually goes double if you’re a dirt bike enthusiast looking to shoot some cool […]

To Prove A Point, This Factory Foreman Drank Something Extremely Poisonous

Even if you’re not scientifically inclined, you probably know that mercury and the human body just don’t mix. Even a small amount of mercury can be deadly. Sadly, toxic mercury is found in a variety of devices that we use every day. While it’s hard to avoid exposure to the substance, you can (and should) avoid drinking it. This guy, however, appears to have missed the memo. (via Reddit) While I don’t know for sure what happened […]

There Is Something Odd About This Real Estate Listing…What In The World?!

House hunting is a stressful experience to say the very least. Never mind the actual process of buying when you’ve found a place you love. Most people take ages just to get to that point. Sure, it’s still a buyer’s market out there, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy to find your dream home. Usually, you have to settle or compromise on some fronts. Take, for example, the house in the photos below. It’s listed for sale […]

Police In Scotland Have A Real Paranormal Mystery On Their Hands

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DTBT_ATF’); }); If your house is haunted, calling the police is unlikely to help. Still, it can do you some good to at least have outsiders come into your home and verify that what you’re experiencing isn’t a hallucination. Strangely, that’s the exact situation officers in the Scottish town of South Lanarkshire found themselves in earlier this month. Officers received a call from a mother and her son complaining of an extremely violent haunting taking […]

Never Let Your Guard Down When You’re Hiking…Holy Crap

Most people would consider hiking to be a relatively safe hobby, right? Usually you’re hiking in parks that are regulated and patrolled so there’s help nearby should something terrible happen. However, even if you think you’re completely safe, you should still plan for disaster. I bet the hiking group in this video never expected to find themselves face-to-face with a dangerously fast landslide. But that’s exactly what happened. Luckily, they were saved by some quick thinking and […]
