Robots Are Going From Cool To ‘KILL ALL HUMANS’ A Little Too Quickly For My Taste

For all the movies and TV shows like Battlestar Galactica, iRobot, and Blade Runner out there that depict robots as being our eventual undoing, it’s a little odd that people keep making these things. If you ask me, robots are basically manmade harbingers of doom. Last week, for example, Microsoft’s millennial chatbot “Tay” decided that Hitler had some pretty good ideas.

As if Tay’s comments weren’t scary enough, a SXSW presentation got a little too apocalyptic recently when another robot named Sophia cheerfully said, “Okay, I’ll destroy all humans!”

I agree with Dr. David Hanson’s idea to keep robots looking like robots. After all, we should probably be able to distinguish them from humans when they ultimately decide to end us. (I’m probably going to regret writing this article when the Cylons finally take over, aren’t I?)

When A Woman Is Addicted To Drugs, Something Terrible Happens To Her Newborn

When a woman is pregnant, it is important for her to eat healthily so that her baby comes out of the womb in great condition. A mother’s diet while pregnant directly affects the health of her baby. As such, when a woman puts terrible things in her body, it can be highly detrimental to her unborn child. Women who continue to drink alcohol, smoke cigarettes, and use drugs during their pregnancies can expect complications to arise.

When this video was posted online, people got to see those disastrous effects for themselves. This baby’s mother used heroin throughout the duration of her pregnancy, so her baby became addicted in the womb. This disturbing footage captures what withdrawal symptoms are like for infants who suffer from Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS).

This is a truly heartbreaking sight, and it should be a lesson to mothers everywhere. Don’t use drugs while you’re pregnant. Better yet, don’t use drugs at all!

As It Turns Out, The Antibiotics That Help Us Now Might Kill Us Later

Everyone has a theory about how the world is going to end. Will we fall at the hands of global warming? Nuclear war? Super volcanoes? Sinkholes?

If you ask pharmaceutical scientists, they’ll probably tell you that the real destroyers might actually be antibiotics.

Well, the antibiotics themselves won’t kill us…just the insane bacteria that they ultimately create. Let the people at Kurzgesagt explain our impending doom.

It’s up to us to use antibiotics in ways that won’t make humanity come to a screeching halt like it did in Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Either way, I wouldn’t be surprised if the apocalypse ends up being James Franco’s fault in the end.

When You See What They’re Using To Make Art, Your Skin Will Crawl

The makers of Raid roach spray just did something artistic, and it’s quite possibly the weirdest project of all time.

Walking into an art gallery, you never know what you’re going to see. Just ask these unsuspecting patrons. Instead of pencils or paint, the creators who made these works used hundreds of dead cockroaches to create a stunning series.

That’s kind of morbid, isn’t it? Poor little guys. That being said, it’s kind of beautiful when you take a step back and just look at these pieces for what they are.

Trains Screaming Like Humans Are Somehow The Funniest And Most Horrifying Thing Ever

There are some things on the Internet that are best left unexplained. To ask why YouTuber theseheavenlybodies would insert panicked voices over several speeding trains would only lead one down a rabbit hole of more unanswerable questions…spiraling into insanity. All you need to know is that it looks like the trains are screaming, and it’s simultaneously hilarious and frightening.

I can’t deny that I’ve watched this video at least 15 times now, and each time I get more confused. The best thing to do is to embrace the chaos. One YouTube commenter described it as “Thomas and friends on mushrooms.” Seems about right.

Motorists Spotted This Creepy Woman Wearing White Walking Down The Side Of The Road

I’ve been covering the ghost beat here at ViralNova for a while now, and I’ve read a lot of similarities in these stories. Few are more uncanny than the common materialization of a “lady in white.”

Why is this specific haunt so prevalent, not just in American paranormal culture, but in Europe as well? Could it be remnants of an old folktale? Or is “she” part of a broader paranormal phenomenon?

In any case, this video of a woman in a wedding dress was taken this past week on a deserted highway in New Jersey. The figure perfectly fits the description of the these “lady in white” sightings.

According to Bill Hand, who originally caught her on tape, she was carrying flowers, wore a veil, and didn’t respond to offers for help. And he wasn’t alone…this radio personality explains the same thing:

As it turns out, there’s pretty much a “white lady” myth from every corner of the globe. Often, the ghostly figure is tied to a local woman of note who was confronted with tragedy. She becomes the town’s “banshee,” a harbinger of death.

The “white lady” is often seen while driving down a dark road such as in this video. She can also be seen at the front door of your house, which in England, marks the foreboding death of one of your family members. There was even a movie called Lady in White, which depicted a ghost woman searching for her daughter in Rochester’s Durand Eastman Park.

Watch As Mother Nature Proves She’s Stronger Than Any Man-Made Structure

With new buildings being constructed every day all across the globe, Mother Nature is slowly dying thanks to urbanization.

The towering apartment building below was in need of serious repairs, so when city officials got wind of some pretty gusty weather coming their way, they feared that the structure might collapse. They had the building evacuated, and it’s a good thing they did.

As you can see below, Mother Nature is determined to prove that she won’t go down without a fight. The day after the evacuation, strong winds sent the apartment building tumbling to the ground. Luckily, no one was injured in the windy demolition.

It Looks Like They’re Just Skipping Rocks At First, But Watch What Happens Next

They say the simplest things in life are the best. Let’s find out if that’s true, shall we?

For all the science nerds out there who know that sodium and water just don’t mix, imagine what would happen if you skipped some sodium metal across a pond. Actually, you know what? Don’t imagine it. Watch it all go down in the video below.

Don’t try this at home, folks.

If you’re anything like me and you love all of science’s little wonders, you’ve probably already watched this 30 times on a loop (and I don’t blame you one bit).

This Shark Broke Into A Cage…With A Diver Still INSIDE

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again — I’m terrified of the ocean.

Of course, sharks play a big role in that fear. While I understand that they aren’t as bad as people paint them to be, there’s no way I’d ever go swimming anywhere near them. I just can’t risk something like this happening.

During a recent shark cage diving trip in Guadalupe Island in Mexico, things went very, very wrong for diver Ming Chan. As he was watching great white sharks that were swimming just outside of his cage, one of them lunged at the bait tied there and broke in.

While the man who filmed all of this says that the shark was likely just confused and couldn’t swim backwards, that doesn’t make this any less horrifying.

Luckily, Chan is a very experienced dive instructor and reacted quickly by swimming to the outside of the cage’s bottom as this happened.

He is completely unharmed and says that this experience has definitely not scared him away from future diving trips. He is a much braver person than I will ever be.

Just When You Thought Taxidermy Couldn’t Get Any Creepier, This Happens

Taxidermy as it functions today mostly falls into the hobbyist realm, and very few professionals out there make a living with this bizarre art form. Back in its heyday, however, experimentalists went wild and let their imaginations run free.

They liked to take things a step further, and they created some seriously weird stuff in the process. Just take this dancing fox, for example. It looks just as crazy as it sounds.

Talk about nightmare fuel.

Everything about this video is creeping me out. I respect taxidermists, but I think the person responsible for this thing went a little too far.
