24 Abandoned Houses From Around The World That Are Beyond Creepy

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…

2. Not exactly welcoming, am I right?

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBM_BTF’); });

3. This house in Detroit, Michigan, looks like it came straight out of a horror movie.

4. This house in Denmark looks like it belongs to a witch.

5. The vulture sitting on the roof really doesn’t make me feel good.

6. I’m convinced that this farmhouse is haunted.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCI1_BTF’); });

7. Okay, this one may be creepy, but it’s also stunning.

8. What’s creepy about this isn’t so much the house itself, but the mannequins hanging out on the porch.

9. I’m not going anywhere near this Floridian horror.

10. And I’m going to avoid Ohio, too.

11. This ghoulish home is in Scotland.

12. I wouldn’t go there in the daytime, let alone at night!

16. I’m afraid to ask what’s inside this house in Ontario, Canada.

17. The Bennett School for Girls in New York isn’t exactly a house, but it’s definitely unsettling enough for this list.

18. Although it’s beautiful, this Scottish home is not on my list of places to visit.

19. I have a suspicion that the inside of this Pennsylvania house is way more disturbing than the outside.

20. The following mess in Coldwater, Michigan, is totally “Blair Witch Project” material.

When People Believe Fake News, They Reach Peak Insanity And Do Crazy Things

If the radio adaptation of “The War of the Worlds” has taught us anything, it’s that you shouldn’t always believe the “news” you’re hearing.

Unfortunately, many are quick to trust false information without checking the legitimacy of the sources they’re getting it from. But mass panic isn’t the worst thing that can happen.

Twenty-eight-year-old Edgar Maddison Welch from Salisbury, North Carolina, became convinced that an online conspiracy theory was true after reading fake news stories that began surfacing last month before Election Day. According to “Pizzagate,” the Comet Ping Pong restaurant in Washington, D.C., its owner, and even Hillary Clinton and her former campaign manager were involved in a child sex-trafficking operation running out of the eatery.

Although the rumor is obviously false, that didn’t stop Welch from bringing an assault rifle to the pizzeria to “investigate” the matter.

This Is The Insanity That Happens When You Are High On Crack

I’m sure we’re all aware of the dangerous effects that drugs can have on our brains.

Paranoia, delusions, and the inability to think rationally are only a few, but apparently being immune to feeling excruciating pain is one of them as well.

When a man in Brazil got high on crack cocaine recently, his altered state of mind made him think that it was a good idea to play in traffic. However, running in front of cars wasn’t the craziest thing he decided to do. You really have to see this to believe it.

This is so painful to watch.

If you or someone you know has a drug addiction, please get help here.

17 Of The Creepiest Things People Have Come Across In Cemeteries

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.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBM_BTF’); });

2. The hair makes it even creepier.

3. There’s no doubt that this is foreboding, but I’m really curious about what’s inside.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCI1_BTF’); });

4. Who just casually brings a severed animal’s head into a cemetery?

5. This tree is growing out of a grave.

6. Those are supposed to be below the ground, not above it.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCI2_BTF’); });

7. Well, that’s just lovely.

8. This horrifying sight is a cow’s tongue.

9. Great, someone’s been performing voodoo rituals in the cemetery again!

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCI3_BTF’); });

10. What a nice way to commemorate your loved one.

11. We all knew it was inevitable that a creepy doll would show up in this list.

12. How is this at all respectful to the dead?

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCI4_BTF’); });

13. I can’t help but feel terrified looking at this poor creature.

14. This is what’s thought to be a voodoo-practicing witch’s tomb in New Orleans.

15. What an interesting (and unsettling) choice for a headstone.

16. Does anyone else feel like she’s going to get up and start walking around at any second?

17. I have no idea why, but the person who found this actually took it home with her.

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.

That Feeling When Your Trail Camera Captures Something Creepy Is Not A Good One

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.

Redditor TheBeef1991, who posted the video online, has no explanation for what those eyes belonged to. All I know is that I don’t want to find out.

12 Of The Most Contaminated Fruits And Veggies — You Probably Eat These Every Day!

As kids, we had tons of reasons for not eating our fruits and veggies — they’re yucky, they look funny, they smell…

Nowadays, though, we know that there’s no excuse. Fruits and vegetables are essential ingredients in a healthy diet, providing a plethora of vitamins and antioxidants that keep us living long and happy lives.

But as it turns out, there may be one big reason we didn’t realize…some of those fruits and vegetables are pretty dangerous to our health.

A recent report published by the Environmental Working Group states that these 12 fruits and veggies are incredibly susceptible to harmful pesticides. The chemicals have been linked to hormone problems, cancers, and various other illnesses. So before you eat these foods, definitely give them a good washing.

Here are the fruits and vegetables from “The Dirty Dozen,” ranked from the most contaminated to least.

1. Strawberries

2. Apples

3. Nectarines

4. Peaches

5. Celery

6. Grapes

var OX_ads = OX_ads || []; OX_ads.push({ slot_id: “537251602_5714477e05dbc”, auid: “537251602” });

7. Cherries

8. Spinach

9. Tomatoes

10. Sweet bell peppers

11. Cherry tomatoes

12. Cucumbers

var OX_ads = OX_ads || []; OX_ads.push({ slot_id: “537251604_5714477e05f5b”, auid: “537251604” });

If this has got you down, the study also released a list of the fruits and vegetables least likely to be susceptible to pesticides.

The roundup, known as “The Clean 15,” features fruits and vegetables that contain either no traces or insignificant traces of pesticides that shouldn’t have any negative effect on your health.

1. Avocado

2. Sweet corn

3. Pineapples

4. Cabbage

5. Sweet peas

6. Onions

7. Asparagus

8. Mangoes

9. Papaya

10. Kiwis

11. Eggplant

12. Honeydew

13. Grapefruit

14. Cantaloupe

15. Cauliflower

It’s always good to know what goes into your food and what it contains. You can combat many of the effects of pesticides by either washing your fruits and veggies thoroughly or opting for organic produce.

These Lights Appeared Over Phoenix In 1997, And No One Has A Logical Explanation

On March 13, 1997, the people of Phoenix, Arizona, experienced something that changed many people’s perceptions of the world around them forever. The Phoenix Lights hovered over the city almost 20 years ago, and the phenomenon has yet to be fully explained.

Starting around 7:30 p.m., reports began flooding into police stations and news agencies of mysterious lights appearing in the sky about 300 miles from the Nevada state line through Phoenix, and all the way to the edge of Tucson.

The most famous of these lights were the ones over Phoenix, which you can see in the image below. Thousands of witnesses claimed to have seen these lights hovering over the city. They lingered for a few hours before disappearing.

Witnesses who were close enough to the lights claimed to see a V-shaped UFO nearby. Below is a newspaper clipping containing a drawing by one witness who had been at a higher elevation when the formation passed over the city.

Needless to say, the sudden appearance and disappearance of lights in the sky stirred up some controversy. The government was quick to step in with an explanation.


Air Force officials claimed that the lights spotted over Phoenix were actually slow-falling, long-burning LUU-2B/B flares dropped by crafts on a training exercise at the Barry Goldwater Range at Luke Air Force Base.

While this is the widely held explanation for the Phoenix Lights, there are many in the paranormal and UFO communities who don’t buy it.

Many still cling to the explanation that the lights seen over Phoenix belonged to a massive UFO carrying out surveillance.


(via Skeptic)

What actually happened over Phoenix back in 1997? While the flare explanation does make sense, I still find it weird that the Air Force wouldn’t warn the city ahead of time about the exercise. I think there’s more to this story than the government lets on.

Love Cockroaches? How About A Cold Glass Of Cockroach Milk?

No one really likes being around cockroaches. Anyone who says otherwise is lying, or is just really, really gross. Despite these very obvious facts, it’s possible that one day, we all might have to get a little cozier with our cockroach neighbors if these studies are to be believed.

Earlier this month, a team of researchers discovered something shocking about a certain subspecies of cockroach.


googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBM_BTF’); });

This particular species actually produces a protein-rich “milk” thanks to specialized crystals in the creatures’ stomachs.


“If you need food that is calorifically high, that is time released, and food that is complete, this is it,” senior study author Subramanian Ramaswamy told the press.


googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCI1_BTF’); });

While it’s a pretty gross prospect, these findings could have major implications for fighting world hunger. However, we shoudn’t expect to see cockroach dairy farms anytime soon.


“They wouldn’t go and kill lots of cockroaches for it. They would isolate the gene for this protein from the cockroach and then express it and grow it up in a yeast system in very large microbiological vats and produce large quantities,” Professor John Carver explained.


(via Unexplained Mysteries)

That is terribly gross. I guess I would drink it if I didn’t know what it was. But if you handed me something labeled “cockroach milk,” I would just vomit right there on the spot.

This New Line Of Beauty Products Contains Something Truly Bizarre

When it comes to making money, few financial institutions rake in more cash than the cosmetics industry.

In fact, Americans spend an average of $40 billion a year on makeup and skincare products. Thousands of people out there (ladies and gents alike) will stop at nothing when it comes to looking and feeling a little more fabulous.

One trend that’s really taken the industry by storm is Korean skincare. Over the past few months, Korean brands that Americans once had to search high and low for on Amazon have started popping up in major retailers like Ulta and Sephora. Cosmetic lotions and potions by a company called TonyMoly are quickly becoming cult favorites, and that probably has something to do with the fact that their products contain ingredients that aren’t often included in skincare items that are made in the U.S.

TonyMoly makes a line of products that contains helix aspersa muller glycoconjugates, otherwise known as snail slime. While it’s a little unconventional, the company claims that the compounds found in this mucus can help smooth out wrinkles and fine lines while preventing further damage to the skin.

And since Korean skincare brands started using snail slime, others have followed suit. Although it’s a fairly new addition to contemporary cosmetics, ancient Greeks actually used this slime to fight inflammation.

If you’re an adventurous skincare junkie, why not give it a try?

(via The New York Post)

The fact of the matter is that this isn’t the first bizarre element to find its way into anti-wrinkle creams. If you go through your stash right now, you’ll probably notice that even some drugstore brands add things like urea and placental protein to their formulas. The use of snail slime actually seems pretty tame in comparison.

It’s Called Casu Marzu And It’s Considered The World’s Most Dangerous Cheese…

When you’re looking for a special kind of cheese to spice up your sandwich, which one do you reach for? For me, it’s usually cheddar, but some might want something a little more…exotic. For these folks, I would recommend trying the special Italian cheese officially known as casu marzu. Translated to English casu marzu literally means “rotten cheese.”

Casu marzu actually begins as a different kind of cheese altogether called pecorino sardo. However, instead of letting the cheese ripen in a darkened basement, cheesemakers bring the pecorino sardo outside and place it in the sun. There flies are allowed to lay eggs in it.

As the eggs hatch, tiny maggots feed on the cheese and release enzymes that speed up the fermentation process.


Surprisingly enough, casu marzu is in very high demand even though it’s been outlawed by both the Italian government and the European Union. Despite the ban, Sardinian locals continue to produce casu marzu and sell it on the black market.

While Sardinians claim there are no ill health effects from eating casu marzu, studies have found that it can occasionally cause severe allergic reactions that last for weeks. It’s also possible that some of the maggots will manage to pass through your stomach alive, which can cause problems down the line.


Casu marzu is known as the world’s most dangerous cheese. Not because of the possible health risks, but because the maggots are known to jump as far as six inches when they’re being eaten. So…wear some eye protection!


(via I Love Cheese)

Well, even though that sounds interesting, I think I’ll pass. I know maggots are a good source of protein, but I’d prefer to avoid eating them unless absolutely necessary.
