If you’re into urban exploration, then chances are you’ve found some pretty cool abandoned buildings on your travels.
And you’ve most likely discovered a decrepit house that made you feel a little uneasy at some point. I’ve always wanted to experience that for myself, but after seeing all the unsettling homes below, I’m more than happy to limit my experience to looking at photos.
Prepare to get the chills when you feast your eyes on these examples of urban decay from around the world.
1. Nothing is foreboding about this Slovenian home at all…
Have you ever gone to a cemetery and found something that gave you the absolute chills?
I’m disappointed to say that the only creepy things I’ve seen are the graves themselves — which aren’t actually all that scary. I know it’s strange to want to have a disturbing experience, but just imagining the awesome stories I’d be able to tell keeps me hoping that one day it will happen.
If only I could have been in these people’s shoes, because they made some seriously unsettling discoveries while walking through graveyards.
1. This apparition showed up right after a funeral.
I really need to start taking more trips to graveyards. Maybe then I’ll find something worthy of a horror story. But for those of you who aren’t as weird as me — you might want to avoid them whenever possible.
Trail cameras are great tools for hunters and those who enjoy seeing everything nature has to offer. However, because these cameras are pretty much continuously running, they’re bound to catch some weird stuff every now and then. Sometimes, though, that weirdness turns to terror in mere seconds.
Take the following footage, for example. It was recorded on a trail camera in Deming, Washington, which is a little less than two hours outside of Seattle.
See anything creepy in the fog?
Okay, that admittedly goes by pretty quickly. Here’s a still with the glowing eyes circled to make things a little easier.
What you’re about to see is possibly the craziest and funniest thing you’ll see all year. Mr. Sebuyama, a blogger for a Japanese humor website called Omocoro, recently published these hilarious pictures of himself wearing nothing but a pink sweater. The pictures were a part of a satirical article/guide he wrote about an ingenious idea he had on how someone could keep warm and not spend any money on electricity simply by wearing nothing but a pink sweater-bodysuit. So with out further ado, here’s Sebuyama’s guide to staying warm in the winter:
Hello, I’m Sebuyama. Day after day this severe cold continues, so how can people cope? Take me for example: I don’t have money to buy any clothes, so even indoors I’m left shivering from the cold.
If you’re one of the millions like me who think, ‘I don’t want to rely on a heater, but all I have is a single pink sweater,’ then my investigative report will show you what to do.
1) Put your legs through the sleeves of the sweater.
2) Put your upper body through the large bottom hole of the sweater.
The trick is to fold your body into half so it will fit inside an article of clothing designed for half your body.
3) You’ll find your head is approaching the neck-hole of the sweater just as if you were putting it on normally.
4) Just keep pushing your head through until…You’re done!
Once fully inserted into the sweater, you’ll find your once shiver-inducing room has become your personal tropical cabana! The combination of curling your body up into a ball and the sweater provides an unprecedented level of warmth using a minimum of resources.
Now you needn’t worry about keeping up with your utility bills or whatever horrors global warming decides to unleash next. You can even continue with your work as usual, but now in warmth.
Sebuyama next took his invention out for a field test, because keeping warm indoors is all well and good but we’re busy people with lives to lead out in the world. Won’t curling ourselves up into a single sweater interfere with that?
Here he comes!
Clearly a bit of an unusual sight, but let’s not let that distract us from the field test.
The single sweater continued to keep him warm despite the chilling wind and damp asphalt.
Clearly, it was harder for him to walk in this way but that only burns more calories and keeps you warm by doing exercise.
Sebuyama buys a baked sweet potato (yakiimo) for 100 yen at a local produce shop for the next step in his test, to see how easy it is to eat while looking like a turkey-man.
This little square is a good enough place to relax and eat his yakiimo.
At first, Sebuyama found an issue in his new body-warming technique. He was unable to bend any further than he already had to pass the sweet potato to his mouth. To make matters worse, a pigeon started eyeing his snack.
Things were looking grim for the field test but then he remembered he still had fully functioning hands to eat his potato with. All was well again.
Sebuyama says he was both impressed with how warm he kept and how friendly everyone in town was to him. Some people even asked him for an autograph.
There you have it. If all you’ve got to wear is a single sweater, then you now have the tools to manage even the worst winter Mother Nature can throw at you.
And to think, during this unusually cold winter all I needed to stay warm and cosy was a pink sweater…well, and a whole lot of courage too. Source: Omocoro (Original Japanese article) / RocketNews24 (for English translations) Share Sebuyama’s winter warming guide with your friends below.
