The scariest place to be when you’re a kid? Alone, at night, in your bed, right before you sleep. You just know right when you close your eyes, all the stuff of nightmares is going to come alive and scare any chance of sleep out of you. And it’s probably all true! Who knows what’s going on around you when you sleep. …
Here is how subsidence craters are formed: an underground nuclear explosion gets set off and creates a hole underneath the ground. The ground collapses because nothing is supporting it anymore and then boom, giant crater. It is so gnarly to see because the ground looks like its melting into the core of the Earth.
Here’s some truly frightening footage of airplanes landing at Birmingham Airport in the UK. “Landing” actually might not be the best term for these though because the airplanes look more like they’re spinning sideways and tilting out of control and praying that their wheels touch the ground instead of bouncing off…
Buildings were evacuated in downtown Chicago this afternoon as 69-mph wind gusts whipped glass out of under-construction skyscrapers, smashing them into nearby buildings and shattering them onto streets below.
Villains from movies come in all shapes and colors and quirks and motivations but they all have one thing in common: their smile. They all smile that same maniacal howl where they’re in a joke that no one else is on. It’s proof that they see the world completely different from the rest of us. It’s that crazy darkness…
Typhoon Haiyan was one of the most devastating tropical cyclones in history. The Category 5 typhoon killed thousands and ravaged the Philippines with billions in damages that it’s still recovering from. Here’s a brief glimpse of what it was like to be inside the typhoon. It’s absolutely frightening.
And here I thought stingrays were jolly surfers of the ocean. Not to crabs! Watch as this giant stingray catch a spider crab and vacuum suck the poor crab right into the stingray’s mouth. It’s like one minute the crab is there, the next he’s been vaporized. Poor crab was too busy molting to realize the UFO of the sea…
Dear Lord. Cleaning the windows of skyscrapers is already a scary enough job but cleaning windows of the 91st floor of the 1600-foot tall Shanghai World Financial Center while the wind violently throws around the scaffolding like some unhinged, unbuckled roller coaster swing? That is absolutely pants laundering…
The town of Doyline, in northwestern Louisiana, stood in for fictional Bon Temps during True Blood's HBO run. Vampires and other supernatural beasties menaced onscreen, but the real-life town is facing a far greater concern: the to-be-decided fate of 15 million pounds of toxic explosives.
A hippo in Botswana, apparently quite annoyed by the paparazzi, made its feelings well known when it thundered after a boatload of tourists. The result, captured in the video below, is kinda like Jaws meets Moby Dick meets the "Must go faster!!" scene in Jurassic Park.
A pet alligator was seized after some 37 years spent chilling in its owners' backyard ... and maybe snacking on neighborhood cats. "You cannot own a reptile like this in the City of Los Angeles without having a proper permit," an Animal Services rep said. "And obviously for an alligator, we would not permit that."
If you have coulrophobia, or even an aversion to clowns, you may not want to read this. Because there are a lot of clowns here and they're all doing something strange in the town of Wasco, California: They're wandering around late at night, clown-style.
The world's tallest water slide is located at the Schlitterbahn water park in Kansas City, and also in my nightmares. It's called Verrückt—which means "insane" in German—with good reason: At 168 feet and 7 inches, it's taller than the Statue of Liberty, Niagara Falls, and 23 Shaquille O'Neals stacked on top of each…
There's no other way to say this: You'd better get some toilet paper, because you're about to get the crap scared out of you.

The internet just made me scream like a little girl. Want to know how?
You wouldn't want this version of Sesame Street's Bert to get anywhere near your rubber duckie. Special effects expert Nacho Díaz created this silicone model and posted the results on theeffectslab.com's message board. And it's utterly horrifying and creeptastic.
The era of easy antibiotics may be coming to an end in our lifetimes — a gene that causes a variety of bacteria to become antibiotic-resistant is widespread in the Delhi water supply, according to a new study.
Cyber-terrorists have already compromised the U.S. military's computers and caused blackouts in Brazil, according to tonight's 60 Minutes. Better stock up on canned goods and flashlight batteries for the next big cyber-attack!
Dan Aykroyd doesn't belief we'll ever have a "formal" relationship with aliens - because of 9/11. But that doesn't matter, because the 23 other species constantly observing the human race should all be arrested. Watch Aykryoyd's Larry King rant. [Videogum]
