This Poor Cat…Only In Eastern Europe. This Is Definitely Animal Cruelty!

Not to stereotype, but let’s be honest, there are a lot of crazy videos that come out of Eastern Europe. Granted, I’m sure an equal number of crazy videos are created in America and Western Europe. However, they don’t often get as much media traction as the ones from Russia and other former Soviet countries. Which is why when I came across the video below of a guy smoking cigarettes with his cat, I was hardly surprised…

How does he even get the cat to sit still for this?!

This is definitely a horrible case of animal cruelty. Animals can get lung cancer, too. And it’s not just from actually smoking themselves.

In fact, according to a study, cats who live in homes where someone smokes a pack of cigarettes or more every day are three times more likely to get cancer than cats in nonsmoking homes. Don’t ever subject your pets to this kind of cruelty.

Footage Of This Cigar-Shaped UFO Over Manchester Is Incredibly Clear, And So Freaky

Why is it that whenever anyone spots a UFO, their camera churns out a grainy video? It must be a law of physics that we’ve yet to discover. At any rate, the video below is not one of those. In fact, it’s startlingly clear.

This cigar-shaped object was spotted on a clear day over Manchester, England, back in 2011. The person filming was able to zoom in pretty tightly on the bizarre object. They were even able to make out some details. According to the video description, the object hovered for about 40 minutes before ascending out of sight.

That looks pretty real to me!

While I want to shout from the rooftops that we finally have an authentic UFO video, it’s important not to jump to any conclusions. In fact, because the video is so clear, we need to consider the possibility of it being a hoax.

Cameras Caught This Worker Jumping Out Of A Window After Being Yelled At By Her Boss

No one enjoys being yelled at by their boss. Sadly though, it’s bound to happen at least once. In those moments, we have to remember that even though we’re being yelled at, we’re still worthwhile. Sure the boss is mad now, but they won’t always be mad and they might even apologize later.

Still, that doesn’t make it sting any less when it happens. Bosses, on the other hand, also need to be careful when they’re dishing out the tongue lashings. Berating someone could trigger an underlying mental health issue which can lead to tragic situations.

A video currently going viral shows CCTV footage of a boss berating an employee. After he walks away the employee calmly stands up, walks to the window, opens it, and jumps out before her fellow employees know what’s going on.

This (potentially fake) video contains content that some might find disturbing.

It should also be noted that despite the viral nature of the video, no one so far has been able to verify its authenticity.

A UFO Spotted In This Video Might Explain Last Week’s SpaceX Rocket Explosion

Last week, the world was shocked when a rocket from Elon Musk’s famed private space flight company SpaceX exploded on the launch pad at Cape Canaveral during a test. The explosion (which was technically a fast-moving fire, according to Musk) also destroyed the rocket’s most precious cargo, Facebook’s first satellite.

While the exact cause of the explosion is still being investigated, hawk-eyed conspiracy theorists have quite a novel explanation. They think it was the work of a UFO.

Over the weekend, while reviewing footage of the explosion, a strange object was seen hovering near the rocket.

The object makes an appearance just before the explosion begins and cannot be seen afterward.

While a strange speck on the film is by no means definitive proof, it’s enough to make you suspect extraterrestrial foul play, isn’t it?

Check out the video for yourself below.

While it certainly would be a lot more fun to attribute some supernatural event to the rocket explosion, the fact of the matter is that spaceflight is dangerous business. The fire was most likely caused by a mechanical error, but the possibility of otherworldly interference is fascinating.

This Moscow Bar Is Apparently Home To A Ghost With A Severe Anger Problem

What is it with ghosts haunting bars? It seems like half of the ghost stories I read about are set in bars and pubs. Perhaps it has something to do with bars being places of life, or maybe spirits are drawn to these haunts because of the sadness that drives people to barstools around the world.

While it’s a common paranormal trend, it’s always terrifying. Take the footage below, for example. The owners of this bar in Moscow became concerned when they kept finding broken glass and toppled furniture every morning when they arrived at work. After they found bizarre footage on their security cameras, they called in a team of paranormal investigators to help them get some answers.

That is one unhappy ghost.

While there’s always the possibility that this footage is part of a hoax, I get the sense that it’s authentic. That being said, it’s up to you to decide what you believe.

What Happened To This Aircraft At 10,000 Feet Will Make You Stick To Taking Trains

If you’re making a list of the worst things that could happen during a flight, a hole being blown in the side of the airplane probably tops it. While it’s an unlikely scenario, this is exactly what happened on a flight that was leaving Somalia’s capital city of Mogadishu.

Shortly after liftoff, an explosion of unknown origin tore a hole in the side of the plane near the fuselage.

Luckily, the plane was at a low enough altitude (about 10,000 feet) to make an emergency landing.

Initial news stories reported that at least one person was killed in the explosion, and two more were seriously injured. An official count of casualties, however, has still not been released by authorities.

Getty Images

What we do know is that the majority of the passengers escaped with no serious injuries.

Even scarier than the pictures is this video that was taken shortly after the explosion. It was recorded by Awale Kullane, the U.N. Ambassador of Somalia.

(via EuroNews)

Well, that is utterly terrifying. Needless to say, officials are still investigating the cause of the explosion. In the meantime, I suggest that you all pay attention to the in-flight safety demonstration the next time you travel.

What These Guys Did To The Inside Of A House Is Absolutely Insane

No one really likes cleaning. Sure, it’s a necessary part of life and you don’t really want to live in your own filth. But you also don’t really want to clean it up either. That’s why maid services make so much money these days.

However, what if there was a different way to clean your home that would take care of the dirt and grime, but also be fun at the same time? These Norwegians had the same idea.

They rigged several (probably poisonous) chemicals to mix together in an attempt to clean the stairs using science. But who would rinse everything off? Well, that’s a no-brainer:

This footage is from the show Don’t Do This At Home, and judging by the force of that explosion, you definitely should listen to that sound advice.

How This Woman Manages To Escape From Handcuffs Is The Creepiest Thing Ever

In the medical world, there’s no shortage of weird, creepy diseases. One of the most misunderstood conditions is a disease by the name of Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, or simply EDS. EDS is a connective tissue disorder that’s passed down genetically.

Those suffering from EDS experience a wide variety of symptoms, and they often go misdiagnosed for years. Some also experience hyperflexibility, meaning that they can easily bend and dislocate their joints. This makes it possible for them to escape from sticky situations…like being cuffed by the police.

My joints hurt just watching this.

While it’s a great trick for parties, those with EDS who continually abuse their joints can expect to suffer serious long-term consequences. Don’t try this at home.

The Hairworm Is The Biggest NOPE Known To Man — It’s Worse Than Snakes And Spiders

Nature has plenty of creepy-crawly awfulness to offer. If you’ve read a few of the articles on this site lately, you’re probably very familiar with how terrifying this planet (and all of the creatures living on it) can be.

Well, allow me to take that to a whole new level for you. I’d like to introduce you to my good friend, the hairworm.

The hairworm is a nasty little parasite that infects grasshoppers. The larvae develop inside their buggy hosts, and once they reach maturity, they seize control of the insects’ brains and force them to jump into bodies of water.

Water is the only place where hairworms can breed. Once there, the grasshoppers drown and the hairworms wriggle their way out. The microscopic larvae are then unknowingly ingested by new hosts and the cycle begins again.

While that sounds horrible, reading about it doesn’t even come close to seeing it in action. In the video below, this guy decides to demonstrate just how many hairworms can develop inside one cricket before they force the creature to seek water. It’s so gross.

I think I’m going to be sick. While it’s possible for humans to contract hairworms, they’re not really harmful to adults. That being said, if you think your body might be crawling with these things, you should probably see a doctor.

They Found This Statue In The Woods And From The Looks Of It, The Thing’s Cursed

When someone says they’ve found a haunted object in the woods and it’s ruining their life, you might understandably not believe them, or at the very least, be skeptical of their claims. However, the case of the so-called “Crone,” an object that was found in a cave in New York, might make you change your tune.

Earlier this year, Redditor wiggedhikerthrway and his friend were hiking in the woods of New York’s Catskill Mountains. While they were exploring, they found a hidden cave with a peculiar wooden figure inside. There were nails in its eyes and a noose around its neck.

Getting a bad feeling from the object, wiggedhikerthrway told his friend to leave it and get out of there. The friend, being a skeptic of the paranormal, decided to take the object with him. Oh, what a mistake that turned out to be.

After some low-level paranormal activity on the first day (the object moving from place to place, banging in the night, etc.), things started to get very strange for wiggedhikerthrway’s friend.

They found the statue on a Sunday, and on Wednesday, his friend heard a loud banging noise at his front door in the wee hours of the morning. When he woke up to answer it, no one was there.

Standing there with the door open, he realized that he may have let something into his house that shouldn’t have been there. He went back to bed and when he woke up, there were muddy footprints all over his home accompanied by the overpowering smell of pond water.

That’s when wiggedhikerthrway’s friend went to stay with him for the next few days.

That’s also when they reached out to a paranormal investigator to try to figure out what to do. They had planned to destroy the object, but the investigator warned them that this would only make it worse.

Instead, they should apologize to the entity and return it to the cave. The investigator also offered to take the object from them and investigate it himself. Several days later, after another terrifying encounter with the entity, it arrived in the investigator’s office.

The specialist, Greg Newkirk of The Traveling Museum of the Paranormal and the Occult, has a large collection of haunted objects stored in his home. He started calling this object the Crone and placed it with the rest. That first night, he and his wife heard noises in their house. Inside the office, they found this broken crucifix.

They then set up a camera in the office to catch the Crone moving. Eventually, they got their wish.

Today, there is no doubt in Newkirk’s mind that the object is haunted. It’s now part of his traveling paranormal museum, but no one is allowed to touch it for obvious reasons.

Okay, that is the freakiest thing I’ve read all summer. I really want see what The Traveling Museum of the Paranormal and the Occult is all about for myself, but I’m honestly too terrified to be in the same room as that thing.
