Did you know that in some parts of the world it's possible to hire a robot to photograph your event rather than a person? They can also be purchased to be used as waitresses or information dispensers. You guys, what even is this world anymore? We're going to wake up tomorrow and people will be marrying robots, somehow mating with them and the human race will be long gone.
Everyone's clutching their pearls at the news of measles outbreaks in the United States, where the disease had been once eradicated due to vaccinations, but this has been happening for years. Mumps, whooping cough and chicken pox are also resurging, and I have heard so many arguments that scare me much worse than the tinfoil theories do.
It's what some might consider to be a freaky and strange phenomenon. Christmas eyebrows, or styling your brows to look like Christmas trees, is indeed a thing, whether you like it or not. People are actually pushing the hairs of their eyebrows into opposite directions to mimic the look of a Christmas tree before adding all kinds of adornments to their "trees."
Urban legends have always been irresistible nuggets of life, reeling us all in with their promises of darkness and jump scares. Many urban legends have been made into media, from movies to TV shows like Supernatural, and the fringe stories that people used to share at parties grew into global phenomena shared over the Internet. But what about urban legends that ring of truth?
Freaky places to visit (or that you can't visit!) are always interesting, and here's one I have never heard of until now: North Brother Island in New York is an abandoned plot of land consisting of 22 acres. Nobody is allowed to go there, which is probably a good thing because they might get scared enough to have a heart attack and die out on the island.
If you're like me (and a lot of other people), you can fall into the black hole that is the Internet for hours reading useless but interesting information. Buzzfeed is one of the biggest fun black pits that exists and right now they have an article up about the scariest pages on Wikipedia that you have to check out if you love the strange, macabre and downright terrifying.
Let's talk about freaky phenomena in general for a moment. When you think about the freakiest thing you've ever experienced, can you honestly confirm that it was true? Whether you saw a ghost, heard a voice or experienced something totally weird, did it really happen? Or was it your imagination playing tricks on you?
You know the story. A hitchhiker (usually a woman but not always) asks for a ride and the driver picks him or her up. Once they reach their destination, they disappear, only to leave the driver to discover that he or she had been dead for many years. He or she often tells the story in a tavern or bar to a group of grim locals who inform the driver that the hitchhiker was a girl who died in a car crash on prom night or something like that. The urban legend is so popular that it was the subject of the pilot episode of the hit CW series Supernatural.
EVP may be most well known as a fictional method of speaking to the dead popularized on movies like Ghostbusters, but actual paranormal investigators do utilize electronic voice phenomena when they attempt to collect data on the unexplained. A team of researchers traveled to 19th century Gwyrch Castle, where sightings of a ghostly woman and reports of terrified dogs have been reported.
