This Halloween Decoration Was Pulled From Stores Because It Goes Way Too Far

Putting up scary decorations is an awesome way to set the mood for Halloween. When I went trick-or-treating as a kid, I loved how much my neighborhood was committed to creating a spooky atmosphere. But while my neighbors used headstones and skeletons in their yards, one company thinks that it’s a good idea to make […]

Yes, This Beetle Is Real, And No, Nothing Is Sacred Anymore

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DTAT_ATF’); }); There’s not a bug spray on the planet that’ll make me feel safe from this thing. The world’s largest beetle, otherwise known as Dynastes hercules, is beyond creepy. Almost the size of a human fist, not only does it have a needle-like nose, but this sucker can fly.

Far From A B-Rated Horror Movie, These Ants Might Actually Take Over The World

If Humans Suddenly Disappeared, This Is What Would Happen To Earth...It's Not Pretty

The end of the world is a scary concept, right? We tend to equate the possibility of the end of the human race with the end of the world in general, but the truth is that when humanity dies out, Earth will keep on chugging along without us. It’s fun (and kind of freaky) to […]

Look Closely At This Road, And You Just Might See A Ghost Cross Right In Front Of A Truck

We typically think that ghosts come out at night. After all, part of what makes the idea of them so spooky is that they haunt us in the dark when it’s hardest to tell what we’re seeing. On National Highway 10 in India, however, a new video seems to show a shadowy figure crossing the […]

If there’s one thing life has taught me, it’s to never underestimate what small critters can do. I used to work at a pet store, and whenever I reached into the hamster cages, I’d furtively hope that they’d spare me the pain of taking a chunk out of my hand. Even squirrels are not to […]
