    Note: This is only the beginning of the process, the rest is after the jump. This is a pictorial of the process Scottish forensic scientist Nigel used to recreate the face of a Crystal Head Vodka bottle. Is it really what his face would look like? No clue. Because when I wa... / Continue →

    These are the terrifying, predominately zombie/horror themed makeup transformations Stephanie Fernendez created for herself (links to her website with tutorials). Clearly she has the skills to pay the bills. Me? My water's already been shut off and they're coming to cut my e... / Continue →

    This is a video of Nick Santonastasso (who was born with Hanhart Syndrome and only has one limb -- an arm) dressed up as a zombie and scaring Norman Reedus, who thinks he's doing a Walking Dead interview in a hotel room. He definitely gets scared, but not as much as I would ha... / Continue →

    This is a series of photos from abandoned toy factories. Presumably after the dolls came to life and murdered all the workers, but possibly because analog toys have taken a backseat to video games for the past 30 years. Maybe kids just aren't playing with dolls anymore. I re... / Continue →

    Warning: The shots below the article are a little graphic (think the beginning of Bambi but with way more deer staring into your soul) depending on how you feel about the darker side of the circle of life. These are shots captured by a remote motion-detecting camera trap in ... / Continue →

    Because there's nothing more terrifying than getting scared with your loose pecker flopping around, Pennsylvania's "premier haunted scream park" Shocktoberfest will be offering nude tours of its haunted house this fall. Obviously, I will be attending every showing with a sock ... / Continue →

    Apparently some nutcase has been dressing up like Pennywise, the terrifying clown from Stephen King's 'IT', and posing for pictures/staring at people around Northampton, England. I would scream. I would scream like a little girl and run, I don't care how hard I was trying to ... / Continue →

    This is the dash-cam footage of a car traveling Taiwan's Badouzi Coastal Park when heavy rains trigger a landslide (you can see the top right side of the hill give way at 0:03) that ends with a giant f***ing boulder nearly crushing a car. Amazingly, the mud and water that hit... / Continue →

    This is a video from the University of Washington documenting a successful human-to-human mind control experiment. It went like this: Rajesh Rao sat in one lab playing a mind-controlled video game using a special headset. Meanwhile, in another lab, Andrea Stocco was wearing a... / Continue →

    Jumping spiders: for most people, a terrifying combination. For me, a challenge to catch bare handed. And now researchers at Taiwan's National Chung Hsing University have discovered that some species attach a silk 'dragline' before leaping onto their prey to help stabilize fl... / Continue →

    10-year old German boy Alexander Kettler was doing what any kid would, rummaging through his grandparent's attic looking for stashed away nudie magazines, when he discovered some mysterious cases. So Alexander's father Lutz pulled them out and opened them and, SURPRISE, mummif... / Continue →

    This is the 12-foot mech sculpture built over the course of a month out of parts from an old Nissan and other scrap metal. With this guy standing guard in front of your house, you definitely won't have to worry about the neighborhood kids trying to toilet paper your yard. You... / Continue →

    Meet 18-year old Fanny Schlatter. Fanny's right leg isn't feeling as beach-ready as it was a week ago because her Samsung Galaxy S3 allegedly exploded and caught fire in her pocket, leaving her with 2nd and 3rd degree burns on her thigh. *tosses cell phone across room* I'm n... / Continue →

    This is a video of parkour pro James Kingston leaping from rooftop to rooftop and performing a bunch of other death-defying feats of running and jumping around Cambridge, UK. I got a little sweaty watching it, and not just because it's hot as hell here and my A/C stopped worki... / Continue →

    Keep in mind 'cute' is subjective. Now that I think about it I guess 'chubby' is too but nine out of ten doctors have agreed I'm full-blown obese. This is one of two new species of recently described mini-spiders from China. How small is a mini-spider? Well the little guy a... / Continue →

    This is a small series (there's three) of Adventure Time characters imagined in real life by digital sculptor Thomas Lishman. They're all pretty scary. So the next time you're thinking about how great it would be to live in cartoonland, think again. You just can't see the de... / Continue →

    Presumably to compliment his existing brass knuckles and tribal face tattoos, this is a shot of some dude who got his eyelids tattooed to look like they're always open. That's probably gonna make it hard for him to find a sleeping partner. Because I remember dating a girl in ... / Continue →

    Seen here practicing for the circus, Richie Trimble provides us with a first-person view of what it's like to ride his nearly 15-foot "Stoopidtall Bike'. The bike measures 12-feet to the pedals and 14.5 to the seat. That's high. Almost as high as you'd have to be to think a ... / Continue →

    This is a video of Redditor Aussie50 tossing some piece of heavy machinery into a front-load washer and watching it shake itself to pieces on the spin cycle. It will never top the anthropomorphic dryer eating a brick video, although this one is pretty action-packed. It's a sh... / Continue →
