Abandoned Hashima Island (Japan

Hashima Island began life as a vibrant coal mining facility. At one point, with a population density of over 83,500 people per square kilometer, was the most densely populated piece of land on the planet. Barely 2/100 of a square mile, today, aside from rats and a few feral cats, the population of the island is zero and visitors to the deserted land mass say the abandoned and undisturbed buildings look like the aftermath of a zombie apocalypse.

Creepy red eye

It’s a fairly rare occurrence but something all of us experience from time to time. That unusually strong sensation that you’ve been there before or already experienced what you’re doing (or reading) in the present time – it’s called déjà vu. For most people, the feeling passes quickly leaving us slightly frightened and more often, confused. But not so for a 23-year-old British man who researchers say has become victim to one of the strangest cases of déjà vu ever recorded in modern medical history. For the past eight years, he’s been “trapped in a time loop”, feeling as if he was reliving every moment of his life – over and over again.

Aztec Death Whistle

For decades, archaeologists thought the ancient Aztec Death Whistles were nothing more than disturbing skull-shaped toys for Aztec children. They studied how they looked, how they were made, and where they were found. But nobody thought to blow into one. When they did, they found that the disquietingly-decorated skull-shaped clay objects made a spine-chilling noise described by one archaeologist as “the scream of a thousand corpses”. Yeah, they’re that creepy.

Ghost caught on security cam in Japan–woman walks through it (circa 2011)

This video surfaced around 2011 and sparked much discussion. Years later, the consensus is still out – hoax or real? In the video, which was captured via a security cam on the streets of Japan, you will see a woman walking down the sidewalk (top-right side of frame). As she approaches a man standing stationary on the sidewalk, she turns her head to look at something on the opposite side of the street. By all appearances, she is about to walk right into the man. Instead, she walks right through him.

After four years of study, it was announced that a global space-based shield was impossible using existing technology. By then, the world had begun to recognize that dozens of British scientists who worked its projects had begun to die mysterious deaths.
