Famished Trees that Engulfed Stuff

We tend to overlook the power of trees. Most of the time they just stand there, not bothering anyone. But given enough time, a hungry tree can envelope tons of stuff. Trees will munch on mailboxes. old toys, signs, and just about anything they can get their limbs on.

Cursed Weirdness from The Depths of The Internet

It shouldn't be a surprise that people are weird. We're weird as heck. We make life-like werewolf babies and fill our biceps with synthetic polymers until we look like cartoons. Naturally all those cursed images end up in the wonderful worldwide receptacle we call the internet. The weirdness never ends.

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: The Wildly Creepy Junk Kids Say

There are many clear signs that kids are weird and stupid, but sometimes that weirdness manifests itself as intense creepiness. Being  impressionable and not really understanding the world too good, kids have extremely vivid imaginations and sometimes just say things. Things about faces in the walls and dead people watching them. The kind of things you really hope are untrue.

AskReddit Thread: Scariest Space Facts And Mysteries

Someone on AskReddit got a thread going about the scariest space facts and mysteries that people know about. It's easy to forget that we're on a giant rock flying and falling and spinning madly on through space. I mean, we forget to look up at the sky enough as it is. Maybe a convenient forgetfulness.

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

Creepy Warning Signs That Mean Serious Business

We live in a world of unconventional hazards. It might seem cartoonish to think that you might get hit by a propeller, get bit by a plague-carrying rodent or fall down a hidden mineshaft. If those weren't things that could happen, we wouldn't need ominous signs that mean serious business. While sometimes horribly weird and unsettling, these creepy and ominous signs are doing their job.

Voracious Trees That Engulfed Things

Everyone things that trees are peaceful, but in reality they're the only thing out there willing to eat anything. No predator out there would think to eat a motorcycle. Sure, you have to lean that puppy up against a tree and wait a few years, but by gum after a decade or so those famished trees will engulf that sucker. It should be known that trees are low key monsters.

An Anxiety-Inducing, Informative Thread About Oarfish

Honestly, we're just relieved that he got out of the ocean. These oarfish look like they'd fit right into some kind of Pokémon game. They can end up being absolutely massive. Just imagine if you were out swimming around, enjoying some tropical waters, and ended up coming across one of these bad boys at their full size. Yikes. Yikes, indeed.

Un-Fun Facts to Quote Around Respected Colleagues

Knowledge is power, and some weird knowledge has the power to alienate strangers. Knowing how bleak, desolate, painful and precarious the world is can be a lot to handle, but it might make people think you're smart. That's kinda cool, right? Some facts are too sad, which is why it also helps to know wild sex facts to quote during an awkward silence.

Creepy And Strange Things People Saw Working Night Shift

Not too much good happens between the hours of 3 and 5 in the morning. If anyone is out and about, there's a good chance they're not out to shop for groceries or buy flowers for their mom. Sometimes people are out to lurk. Darkness does that. People see some creepy stuff working the night shift.

Uncomfortably Cursed and Wildly Misplaced Foods

Why should food be constrained by terms like "appealing" and "not horrible?" Why should food only go in a mouth? Why don't we put scrambled eggs in a shoe? It's all about breaking down paradigms man. Sure, a lot of these are horrible cursed foods, but sometimes it's time to really freak out the squares with some ham ice cream and peanut butter and jelly body art. Open up Satan's crock pot for some cursed foods.

Quick Tumblr Thread On How Dolphins Started

As we've all had hammered into our heads from an early age, dolphins and whales are mammals. Put extremely simply, dolphins started when some kind of weird pig/rat/wolf/hippo creature figured land was a bad move and there were more opportunities back in the water. That in-between thing looks like a failed science experiment. Nature has produced some strange things, like this cold-blooded freak-devil cave goat. For some mythological biology, here's Tumblr's take on dragon evolution.

Times People Said "Screw This" And Noped On Out

There are moments in our lives when, despite everyone's best efforts to keep us around, the benefits clearly don't outweigh the risks, and we have that freeing moment when we realize we can just leave. It can be a bad job or sketchy situation. Sometimes it just take a "screw this, I'm out" moment for us to notice that it's probably a better idea to set out for greener pastures.

Tumblr Thread About Horrifying Monster Mold

So, the Elephant's Foot mold sounds like some sort of mythological Medusa-level monster. Sounds to me like a big heap of forbidden pudding. Seriously, no thank you. Here's to hoping we don't find ourselves one day in the future, being enslaved by black mold overlords. 

A quick Tumblr thread shares the story of a terrifying monster mold in Chernobyl | Text - The image is of a reactor core lava formation in the basement of the Chernobyl nuclear plant. It's called the Elephant's Foot and weighs hundreds of tons, but is only a couple meters across. Oh, and regarding the Medusa thing, this picture was taken through a mirror around the corner of the hallway. Because the wheeled camera they sent up to take pictures of it was destroyed by the radiation. The Elephant's

Real-Life Glitches People Experienced

Sometimes everyday life gets altered in a way that makes us think we're living in a simulation. Sometimes it's just a creepy moment, sometimes it's a strange coincidence. Either way, sometimes something so strange or unlikely happens that we just have to wonder if we're living in a boring, crappy matrix.
