Tsunamis are absolutely mortifying. There's something hard wired into our DNA that basically just trembles in fear whenever you see one in action. The sheer power of those tsunamis is at once humbling and traumatizing. We're just grateful that these guys were able to get out of that intense situation safely.

This is one of those videos where it feels like what's happening is far too absurd to be real life. Yet, here we are. A throwback gem which involves a golf course out in Brisbane, where golfers are forced to deal with a hole that has literal sharks swimming around in the waters. Shout out to bull sharks for being so impressively adaptable to their environment.

It's everyone's nightmare that some foreign object will find itself in their path while speeding down the freeway, and it's a common enough occurrence that fears of it happening are completely founded. This guy says that the tire was rolled onto the freeway by some guy, which is just about the stupidest cause for any serious accident. Luckily he was able to walk away from it.

Creepy Times People's Kids Mentioned "Past Lives"

Kids are weird and they lie a lot, but there's a really strange tendency for three and four-year-olds to mention "back when I flew helicopters in 'nam" or "my previous mother wasn't as nice as you." Is it a weird combination of dreams they had, the power of suggestion, and the fact that kids sometimes don't know what they're saying? Almost certainly. Is it also extremely creepy when a very small child insists that they were a crooked cop who was buried in an unmarked grave? Very much so, yeah. Here's a twitter thread of people's kids saying similarly creepy stuff.

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.

The Most Dangerous Things People Have Eaten

We've all heard stories about stuff like poisonous blowfish, but when you really think about it, there's a surprising number of foods that can kill you. It's not just poisonous foods, but also strange and specific allergies, extremely dodgy and less than hygienically stuff, or just something you might just choke on. There's a wide world of dangerous food out there, and many of us have found ourselves on the wrong end of the spoon. People will also eat the worst things, simply out of politeness.

Safety Failures Of OSHA-Defying Boldness

Sure, the get 'er done mentality is an effective way to motivate yourself to complete tough jobs and long hours, but when it's used by your boss to justify lowering you on a backhoe over the side of a cliff, you're entering safety failure territory. Anyone with a physical job is regularly tempted or ordered to take scary shortcuts in the form of safety failures that would make OSHA faint. Gotta admit, jacking a car up with a plastic chair doesn't really seem worth it.

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.

Frightening Signs That Mean Serious Business

With the many threats in this world, we thankfully have ominous signs to go with them. While it's extremely frightening to see a sign that says "falling snakes" or "invisible poison gas area" or "molten lead splatter zone" it's still better that we have the warning in the first place. With all the varied and creative threats to dodge, it's no question why we have all these creepy signs that make their message clear.

People's "Man, I Gotta Get Outta Here" Moments

Maybe it's a 6th sense, maybe it's sheer panic, maybe it's using your eyes to see an angry pig barreling at you like you're made of slop. There are moments in our lives where we know that the right thing to do is just leave and never come back. There are also those moments where a particular place beats us down to the point where we say "screw this, I'm out.' There are moments we just know when it's the time to nope on out.

So, apparently these Sixgill sharks can get up to 11-14 feet. Reports also indicate that they're generally harmless (unless they see camera flashes), like to chill out in the deep depths, and are known to hang out closer to the surface at nighttime. So basically, if you're a diver who likes to go for night dives in the Puget Sound, you might come across one of these behemoths.
