This Is Why Trucks Carrying Human Waste Should ALWAYS Have Tops

Imagine that you are casually driving down the road. Suddenly, a semi truck nearly slams into you, and spills 27 tons of human waste in the process.

That’s exactly what happened on November 23 in Brisbane, Australia. As the security footage below shows, the semi was not at fault, but that didn’t make the situation any less awful. You’d think that a truck hauling around raw sewage would have a top on it, but that unfortunately was not the case.

The near wreck would have been a minor incident had the spilled sewage not been involved. I can’t help but wonder — how in the hell did they clean it all up?

I feel so bad for whoever was tasked with sanitizing that area. If you have any friends who are bad drivers, be sure to share this with them. Maybe the fear of a raw sewage spill will help them stay alert on the road!

They Wanted To Know What Made A Rattlesnake Rattle, So They Cut It Open

Rattlesnakes are considered some of the most sophisticated creatures in the world, and they have the tails to prove it.

Scientists believe these defense mechanisms to be highly sophisticated warning signals, which makes rattlesnakes uniquely terrifying. It’s a one-of-a-kind trait that not many people understand, so let’s take a closer look at what’s really going on when these serpents defend themselves.

The noises that they generate ward off predators. Their tails rattle about 50 times per second, and they can keep that up for hours on end if necessary.

The rattles are made of keratin, and every time snakes molt, their tails get a bit longer. When rattlesnakes travel, they keep their tails up to avoid damaging them, since they rely on those noisemakers for survival.

The guys in this video wanted to learn more, so they went ahead and cut a rattlesnake’s tail open.

And there you have it, folks. It’s never a bad idea to learn about creatures that pose a threat to humans. You never know when you’ll hear that telltale rattle.

If You’re Still Looking For A Halloween Costume, This Just Might Work For You

I’m a big fan of quick Halloween costumes because yes, I’m a super-lazy person.

However, it can be hard to pull something together fast without it looking really cheap. Plus, it’s way more fun to create your own creepy getup than just buying a generic one at the store. That’s why I’m totally loving this gruesome makeup job.

If you’re in the market for a creative yet completely freaky costume, you have to check out this woman’s easy tutorial on how to give your face the appearance of being unzipped.

Who knew cotton could look so much like bloody flesh?

If This Is Happening In Your Restaurant, You’re Doing Something Very Wrong

In the food service industry, there is nothing more disturbing than walking into the kitchen and seeing something gross. Luckily, thanks to stringent health and safety standards, the odds of this happening are actually pretty small. That being said, unsavory stuff does happen now and then. One time, I saw a rat just chillin’ in a restaurant kitchen, and the worst part was that no one seemed to care.

If you think that’s a gross story, just wait until you see what this cook found when he started his shift one day.

I think they need the ghostbusters of rat exterminators to take care of an infestation like that. Nah, you know what? Just burn the whole place down. What’s the nastiest restaurant experience you’ve ever had?

10 Photos That Prove The Praying Mantis Is The Most Badass Insect On Earth

When it comes to the animal kingdom, the undisputed champion is the sloth (in my personal opinion, anyway). But what about when it comes to insects more specifically? I would like to nominate the praying mantis for the title of “Most Badass Bug.”

They might not seem like much at first glance, but they’re scrappy and they fight creatures much bigger and stronger than they are (and often win). Just have a look at some of these photos and videos. I think they’ll make you understand my logic.

When a praying mantis sets its sights on you, you don’t stand a chance…especially if they catch you off guard, like this poor lizard.

They don’t discriminate on the basis of cuteness either. In some areas of the country, hummingbirds are on the praying mantis’ menu.

That one never stood a chance.

The same goes for frogs.

And spiders, apparently.

They’re also experts when it comes to blending in. This particular species of mantis actually evolved to look like a wasp.

Let’s just say they go for some unusual prey.

Even though the cat survived this time around, I bet it’s scarred for life now.

They’re also disturbingly good at fishing, which freaks me out.

Eventually, every living thing meets its match. For this poor praying mantis, it happened to be the web of a rather large spider.

(via Reddit)

Even though they are fearsome, I’d much rather have to deal with a praying mantis invading my home than a snake or spider.

This Is A Real Fish From The Deep Ocean…And It’s Made Of Pure Nightmares

Despite knowing more about the ocean depths than we’ve ever known before, it’s still safe to say that there are many untold horrors lurking there, miles beneath the surface. Of the few we know about, they would best be described as alien creatures.

The deep-sea hatchetfish certainly meets that standard.

These freaky-looking creatures are found in the temperate waters of the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian Oceans.

Beyond their generally creepy appearance, these buggers have also evolved bioluminosity to help them catch food in the dark depths of the ocean.

We don’t encounter them much at the ocean’s surface. They spend most of their time at depths of anywhere from 160 feet to almost a mile down.

The shape of their body is where they get the name hatchetfish from.

While they share a name, deep-sea hatchetfish are not related to their much less creepy counterparts found in fresh bodies of water around the world.

Ugh, that has got to be literally the creepiest fish in the world. I guess the only saving grace of drowning in the ocean is that I’ll be long dead before my body reaches the depths that these fish call home.

This Giant, 5-Foot Earthworm From Ecuador Is Creepy As Hell

Earthworms are some of the many organisms on this planet that keep our society going. Without them refreshing the soil, you can bet that we’d have a pretty big agricultural problem on our hands.

Despite that, worms are pretty creepy to look at, which is why we’re here to give you some perspective. The next time you pick up a rock and see a bunch of worms underneath, take comfort in the fact that they’re not five feet long.

If you don’t feel like that’d be such a bad sight to behold, I give you the five-foot earthworm in all its glory.

Nope! So much nope. I mean, I guess earthworms are harmless, but I just can’t seem to shake the creepiness of this one. Are we totally sure this isn’t a snake?

These Audio Tapes Reveal Jared Fogle’s Sickening Plan To Get Close To Children

Jared Fogle rose to fame by becoming the face of Subway. He lost astronomical amounts of weight by incorporating the sandwiches into his diet, and he quickly became the brand’s spokesperson.

Fogle is now imprisoned in Colorado and serving a hefty sentence for the distribution and receipt of child pornography, as well as traveling to engage in illicit sexual conduct with a minor.

Most horrifying of all are the charges of sexual abuse. These audio tapes reveal how demented and twisted his actions were, since he had a very specific plan that he used to get closer to children.

Sickening is the only word that can describe people like him. Fogle used his star power to get closer to kids, and it’s highly likely that he caused immense trauma to his victims. It’s always scary to see the horrifying people behind the masks we see every day.

It’s Still Not Ideal, But I’d Take This Type Of Shark Attack Over Any Other.

This has to be the rarest of all shark attacks, and thank goodness for that!

A shark swam up to this guy in the water, preparing to pounce. What happens isn’t your average attack… but it’s disgusting. I suppose it is less disgusting than being ripped to shreds, though. It’s certainly not as painful.

See what happens when one nurse shark swam up to a tourist. It’s ridiculous!

For those of you who want to live in this moment forever.

(H/T Daily Mail)

Nurse sharks, like the one featured in this video, usually don’t pose any threat to humans. …but I guess anything goes in those Cancun resorts. I heard they even put salt on the rims of their glasses. Wacky!
