According To A Woman’s Account, Aliens Are Both Real…And Can Use Smartphones

Funny
Most elaborate debates about the existence of aliens are missing one thing: hard photographic evidence. There's no proof of the beings taking humans for rides in their spaceships over the years. However, that all may change if one woman's story is true. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DCBP_ATF'); }); A woman from Plymouth, Illinois, reported earlier this month that she experienced a large period of lost time that she believes was caused by an alien abduction.

The Letter That Jack The Ripper Sent To Police Is Demonic…He Signed It ‘From Hell’

The Letter That Jack The Ripper Sent To Police Is Demonic…He Signed It ‘From Hell’

Funny
Most of us are at least a little bit familiar with the story of Jack the Ripper. You know, the brutal serial killer that stalked the poorest London neighborhoods in 1888. While Jack was completely merciless when killing and dismembering his victims, what most people don't know about him is that he also enjoyed taunting the police with chilling letters. According to historical accounts, police officers in London received several letters from Jack the Ripper that detailed his brutal escapades. Wikipedia Strangely, however, each of these letters appears to have been written by a different person based on the handwriting. This has caused modern historians to declare most of the letters false -- all except for one, that is. Let me introdu...

He Was The Greatest Surgeon Of His Time, But His Operations Had Astounding Death Rates

Funny
Today, many surgeries are considered to be relatively minor medical procedures. When you show up at the hospital, it's a safe statistical assumption that you're going to leave that place alive. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DCBP_ATF'); }); However, that wasn't always the case. Surgery used to be quite dangerous, and not always just for the patient, as the story of Scottish surgeon Robert Liston will demonstrate... During his career Liston was known as a surgeon with "the fastest knife in the West End. He could amputate a leg in 2.5 minutes." Wikipedia googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DCBM_BTF'); }); Now, I know what you're thinking. That's barbaric! Why would anyone...

Just When You Thought Taxidermy Couldn’t Get Any Creepier, This Happens

Funny
Taxidermy as it functions today mostly falls into the hobbyist realm, and very few professionals out there make a living with this bizarre art form. Back in its heyday, however, experimentalists went wild and let their imaginations run free.They liked to take things a step further, and they created some seriously weird stuff in the process. Just take this dancing fox, for example. It looks just as crazy as it sounds. Talk about nightmare fuel. (source: Eccentric Antiquities)Everything about this video is creeping me out. I respect taxidermists, but I think the person responsible for this thing went a little too far. Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/taxidermy-nightmare/

What Happened To These Twins On A Highway In The U.K. Is Absolutely Insane

Funny
Some stories are almost too bizarre to believe, since the actions of the people involved in such stories seem to defy logic and explanation. Then, just when you think there's a conclusion, everything twists and you're left scratching your head. While you probably haven't heard too many stories like that, the tale of two Swedish twins on a trip to the U.K. certainly falls into that category.

Then, right in the middle of talking, one of the women makes a run for it and heads straight into traffic. YouTube / Adrian VERNE She is struck by a truck and seconds ...

Funny
Now that summer is almost here, you're probably gearing up for at least one beach adventure. We all know that the ocean (and by extension, the beach) can be a place full of terrifying creatures. One of the most notable is the jellyfish. Now, jellyfish come in a variety of shapes and sizes and their sting's potency can vary, too, but bottom line? They're all pretty horrible. However, if coming across a few is unavoidable, which ones should you be truly concerned about? That would be the Irukandji jellyfish... The Irukandji is an incredibly small jelly, but it also happens to be the deadliest in the world. You also don't have to be near them to be stung because they can fire their stingers at prey or what they perceive to be attackers. Wikipedia ...

Clowns are supposed to be funny, fun-loving figures who dance around doing silly things that make us laugh. But sadly, that assessment of clowns has not been accurate for a number of years.
