Creepy and Imposing Signs That Aren't Messing Around

They say what you don't know can't hurt you. The "they" in that phrase seems not to have ever heard about dangerous heavy equipment, poisonous trees, and looming monkey attacks. These creepy signs make their message clear about what's coming for whom, and that's probably a good thing. Even though these terrifying signs speak the language of fear, they're still trying to tell us something, and that's better than nothing.

Creepy Moments People Won't Forget Anytime Soon

There are a few types of creepy stories. Some are like a quizzical moment that people have a hard time explaining, like a weird coincidence or some kind of paranormal junk. Then there's the other kind of creepy, the kind where you wake up at 3 in the morning, look out your window and there's just a dude standing in the middle of the road staring at your house. Yikes.

Terrifying Signs that Speak the Language of Fear

Put simply, there are a lot of things out there that can kill you, such as electricity, fires, electricity fires, strong currents, loose animals, and accidentally wandering into firing ranges. Even a big hole can be ridiculously dangerous if it's deceptively placed. It's better that we have spooky signs to remind us that, while we're basically at the top of the food chain, we aren't invincible. The signs can get pretty creepy though.

Twitter Thread: Old Wax Figures are Some Prime Nightmare Fuel

Wyatt Duncan takes us on a journey of really not great wax figures that are presumably somewhere right now, moldering away in people's basements and love dungeons. Judging by how many creepy wax figures we've seen, it must be really hard to do this correctly. For some insight on why these are so creepy, here's a tumblr thread on the uncanny valley aspects of why unrealistic animation is less unsettling than realistic animation

Ominous Signs that Speak the Language of Fear

Some spooky signs and threats seem more cartoonish than others, but what these signs do is make you ask some deep questions about what had to happen for that sign to get there. There's surprise abandoned mine shafts, nearly invisible wasps nests, aggressive-ass geese, and unexploded munitions around every corner. The world has its fair share of uniquely spooky signs.

A passenger started recording a sparking wheel during takeoff from Montreal. The whole wheel comes off, but luckily planes are built with redundancy in mind and the thing landed safely soon after. No one was injured, but some pants were probably harmed.

Apparently all the oil in these trees makes them extra flammable, and when the wind spreads the flames through the canopy like this, it spreads quickly, violently, and it's absolutely terrifying.

Ominous Signs That Are Too Good At Being Spooky

Overall, it's good that we have signs like these, because it means someone is looking out for you. That said, such a casual reminder of your own mortality can seem a little off-putting, especially when spooky signs do too good a job. Some could even argue that some scary signs are scarier than they have to be.

This thing is literally multiple feet wide and when they get to spraying holy crap do those thousands of little bastards get pissed. It makes sense this guy used this as an opportunity to promote his pest control business, because that nest is a pants-crapping behemoth of nope-like proportions.

Apparently this can happen when someone is being rescued by helicopter? This 74 year old woman is said to be in stable condition. Seriously, this is terrifying. This is like the kind of crap they make you do in astronaut training.

This footage will give you a panic attack! Two window washers were trapped for nearly an hour, as they swung from the Devon Tower in Oklahoma City. Firefighters managed to secure the basket and get the two contractors down safely, where they refused medical services. Can you imagine what was going through their heads?!
