This Old-Style Funeral Home Is Abandoned And It Looks Incredibly Freaky

Funny
In the realm of urban exploration, an abandoned, well-preserved funeral home is pretty much the holy grail of creepy locales. While that might sound like something difficult for the average person to find, Freaktography is no ordinary explorer. As he was roaming around in an unnamed city, Freaktography came across this old funeral home that had only recently been abandoned. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DCBP_ATF'); }); According to Freaktography, the building was constructed in 1897 for about $10,000.

When An Underground Water Pipe Explodes, You’re Going To Be In For A Bad Time

Funny
googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DTBT_ATF'); }); When people say you need to be a vigilant driver, you really should take them seriously. While accidents aren't a guarantee, anything that does go wrong while operating a large, moving piece of machinery is instantly 10 times more dangerous than it would be otherwise. Even a moment of distraction can lead to disaster. Unfortunately, though, being a cautious driver can only get you so far. There are just some circumstances that are truly too random for you to predict. Case in point: what happened to the poor driver in the video below. They're being careful and watching the road, but there is no way they ever expected this... Just wait for it. Oh man, I really hope they w...

A Man Died While Building A 45-Story Building. What’s There Now Is Heartbreaking Yet Amazing.

Entertainment
Caracas is the largest city in Venezuela, and it is also the capital. This capital city is reported have the highest per capita murder rate in the world (as a country, Venezuela also has the highest murder rate per capita). Murders, violent crimes and lesser crimes all go unsolved. That's because most of this city's population lives in poor slums. There are neighborhoods covering nearly every corner of the city, filled with poverty and squalor. No one there cares to stop the crime, nor do they have the power to. In the middle of Caracas stands a tall building, one of the largest slums in the world and a monument to the life that most people live there. 70% of the city's population lives in slums.

They Caught This Creature Climbing Buildings In Russia…But What Is It?

They Caught This Creature Climbing Buildings In Russia…But What Is It?

Funny
If there's going to be a bizarre, otherworldly-looking creature spotted scaling the side of a building, why wouldn't it be in Russia? After all, Russia does tend to attract more than its fair share of paranormal activity. But just because it could happen doesn't mean that it actually will.The video below started circulating back in 2013. It reportedly shows a monster climbing an apartment building somewhere in Russia, and the worst part is that it kind of looks like Slender Man. Although it's freaky, there's an overwhelming amount of evidence that points to it being fake. (source: GloverX )First of all, what would a monster get out of climbing the side of an apartment complex? That feels like a major plot hole to me. That being said, I'll still be drawing the blinds tonight. Re...

What Happens When You Package Dry Ice Is A Sound Straight From Your Nightmares

Funny
By this point, most of us have either heard of or experienced the wonders of dry ice. While it can be fun to play with, it can occasionally be a terrifying substance. Because dry ice sublimates -- meaning that it goes from a solid to a gas -- you need to be careful when you package it up. If the seal is not perfect on a package of dry ice, it can accidentally create a devilish scream straight from the depths of Hell. Check it out in the video below. I recommend wearing headphones for this one. (source: AmaZing Video)Well, that's a little traumatic. I'm not sure if I'll ever be able to look at dry ice the same way again.Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/dry-ice-scream/

People commonly attribute the phrase "I know that I know nothing." to Socrates. We'll never know if Plato wrote that down correctly, but it still holds true. More of us need to acknowledge just how little we know about the world. It can be a wonderful thing to realize, that we are all learning new things every day. Like these 17 little known, but awesomely strange, facts. 1.) After getting struck by lightning, you can be left with this weird tattoo pattern. It's called a "Lichtenberg figure," a temporary mark that consists of fractals. 2.) Lobsters don't seem to age. They don't die of old age, but external factors. 3.) Neil Armstrong went th...

This Guy Loves His Bees So Much He Took Them For A Ride Around Town…WTF?

Funny
Humans are very social creatures, so it only makes sense that we love having pets to care for and keep us company. While it might not make much logical sense to spend thousands of dollars and years of our lives loving a creature of a different species, we do it anyway. For some, though, when it comes to pets, cats and dogs just aren't enough. They prefer to keep more exotic company.Take, for example, Redditor Texas_Beekeeper. He loves his bees. In fact, he loves them so much that the other day he actually loaded some up and took them for a drive in his truck... ...And you thought I was lying! Reddit / Texas_Beekeeper Okay, so they may not actually be his bees. According to Texas_Beekeeper, he was "transporting a tire full of bees. Hun...

When you imagine going to college, you hope that you like your classes, you make friends, and your roommate has at least a vague idea of what's "normal." And that's all you really should be worrying about, right? Especially when you cringe at how much money you're spending to be there ;) . The last thing on your mind should be the quality, or lack thereof, of the dorm rooms. Until now. When this freshman at George Washington University showed up on his first day of college and surveyed his new "room" for the year, he got the shock of his life, and literally paid for it. Keep reading and you'll know why... In the Fall of 2010, this GW student showed up to his double occupancy room, only to find four beds strewn about. He and his THREE roommates put in work orders to at least bu...
