44 Creepy Facts That Will Infect Your Brain With Fear


***

The original intent of “assuming crash positions” on an airplane by tucking your head between your knees was not for safety, but for identification purposes. Officials realized that in the event of a crash, the passengers would all be assumed dead and the mayhem and fires would render identifying bodies impossible. Therefore, they suggested putting your head between your legs in order to best preserve your dental records to later identify your body for your family and records.

There was a serial killer named Albert Fish. He wrote letters to his victims’ parents to tell them how good their children tasted.

The last day of Konerak Sinthasomphone’s life. A 14 year old Laotian-American, kidnapped and drugged, and repeatedly raped. At some point during this terrible exchange Konerak managed to wake up a little bit, to the point where he could stand. He managed to break free, and ended up on the city streets completely naked with blood running from his anus.

Milwaukee police are called by two women, who find this boy completely dazed and confused. A large, well mannered blonde man walks up and casually tells these women that this is, in fact, a 19 year old Asian boytoy of his who drank much too much. The two women, Sandra and Nicole, are not buying this shit. They wait for the police.

The PD show up, there are two officers. These women are in hysterics, and the blonde man has remained cool as a freezer. He offers to take the boy back to his house, and tells them the same story about how this is a 19 year old boytoy who drank too much and stumbled outside. Despite the bleeding from his anus, and being COMPLETELY unable to speak a coherent sentence to let the officers know something was very, very wrong, the police officers actually offer to drive the blonde man and his “boytoy” back to his apartment.

The officers walk in, and it smells absolutely terrible. The boy is mumbling the entire time, and looking at the police with a discombobulated look. They digress, and see that the house is well kept, and looks completely normal. They leave the boy in Jeffery Dahmer’s custody. Can you imagine what he felt seeing the back of the heads of those policeman leave the apartment? What they also left was three skulls in the freezer, two skulls picked clean in his closet, and a drum filled with acid containing a penis and another head. That shit is fucking creepy.

What they also left was the decomposing body of another boy, Tony Hughes(?) (who was killed three days earlier), one room away from where they were standing. Immediately upon the officers leaving Dahmer beat the boy fatally. Afterwards he raped the corpse. He went on to kill another day; and all this despite the two women having a bad feeling, calling the FBI, and inquiring further AFTER the first incident.

How was Dahmer caught? Another boy broke free of the haze of drugs that he left them in and wandered down the street naked and bleeding, this time with a broken handcuff on his wrist. This one was much more coherent and led them straight to Dahmer. His final kill count was 17 people, all of them men and boys, and all of them were either cannibalized or dismembered.

When I was a child, I distinctly remembered seeing a small, dark figured man cross my fairly wide neighborhood street in 3 quick jumps, something that would have been impossible for even a tall person to do. Two more slightly related instances this memory reminds me of:

My bedroom window was a good 10 feet (3 meters) off the ground and one night I was going to bed and looked out the window for a moment only to see another dark figure’s head pass by my window, the eyes of which were easily visible above my rather tall window.

The last “sighting” I ever had was a bit later on, maybe a few months. I was brushing my teeth in the bathroom and looked in the mirror. The angle I was standing at gave me a good view of the living room, in which, for a brief moment, I swear I saw a glowing white, 8 foot tall guy inside the living room. I only saw him for just a moment because it scared the bejeezus out of me and I ran and forced my dad to check every room in the house before I would calm down.

People buy and sell children as sexual toys.

My brother and I used to stay in my grandmother’s house in rural Ireland, very isolated, not even a pub nearby. It was a small house, my grandmother slept upstairs and my brother and I shared a bedroom downstairs. I slept in a bed next to the window and he slept on the otherside of the room. One night at about 2am I was woken up by someone knocking on the window, very quick repetitive knocks, definitely a person, but i was too paralysed with fear to even turn my head. The knocking stopped after about 7 or 8 minutes. It happened again about 3 months later but this time my brother wasn’t there, again I was so frightened I didn’t move or look out the window. Flash forward 10 years, I’m at my grandmothers wake (funeral) and I get talking to the neighbours most of which I’ve never met before, bizarrely i remember the knocking and mention it to them in a joking kind of way not thinking much of it. Turns out one of the neighbours 19 year old sons suffered from paranoid schizophrenia and used to go wandering at night, the same year that I heard all the knocking he burned down a large barn and a field of corn before hanging himself from a tree.

There was a woman named Joyce Vincent who died in her apartment in 2003 and wasn’t found by anyone until three years later. The only reason anyone found her is because a police officer smelled the stench, of which her other neighbors had ignored, and finally entered the apartment to find her body.

That’s terrifying to think that even if you’re sociable and well-liked that you can be forgotten that easy in death.

A Russian doctor named Leonid Ivonavich Rogozov was on an expedition to Antarctica with other researchers.

There’s a small island called Ilha de Queimada Grande off the coast of São Paulo, Brazil, that is home to the highest concentration of Golden Lancehead Vipers, one of the most venomous species of snake in the world. The island is so densely packed with these snakes that there are up to 5 per square meter of the island. The island is so deadly, that the Brazilian Navy bans civilians from the island. Apparently there was only a lighthouse keeper who lived on the island with his family, but they did not survive long. After a while, snakes crawled through their windows. Panicking, they ran outside into the forrest where they were confronted with thousands of more snakes, and were bitten numerous times running through the forest, eventually dying. Oh also, the Golden Lancehead Vipers are unique to this island alone, and its venom causes your flesh to rot off your bones. Some fucked up shit.

When I was about 25 yrs old, my mother had to have major surgery to clean out the artery in her neck. Naturally we were all very worried about her. side note My 11 year old sister had a hamster . So fast forward to about a week or so after her surgery, whole house is filled with family as mom recoups on the couch. Lil Sister comes up to me cuz she is upset that her hamster is “all wet” I go to investigate… apparently while the whole family was in the hospital/worried about mom, nobody cleaned the hamsters cage. Lil Hammy had gotten a parasite that literally ate through his entire midsection, when I looked in the cage all the fur was rotted away from him belly/chest and the reason he was “all wet” was due to that hole…. I could see his little hamster ribs, and his grey little heart beating….every time he took a drink from the water bottle, the water was pouring out of this rotted out hole in his body. The image of it still haunts me to this day. Sorry for how long this is, I literally just joined reddit like 4 and half minutes ago….

The most unsettling fact that I know is not some conspiracy, but science. After the big bang, all matter and energy in the universe started expanding from one point. well, it was evidently discovered that the universe has reached escape velocity from itself. That is, that the gravitational pull of all matter in the universe cannot pull hard enough to bring it all back together. What does this mean? It means that all things will play out, energy-wise. Eventually, all the matter in the universe will use up all the potential energy, and just drift apart forever. Everything will die. And this existence only happens once.

Remnants of the cold war, “Number Stations” were created by government agencies to send coded messages/other information around the world to agents. Many number stations continue running to this day, and can be found on shortwave radio.

Some of them are creepy children’s songs from the 40’s, other ones are just a person reading off numbers all day. According to urban legend, a country (I believe it was russia) had a bunch of weapon systems configured to listen to a number station. If the number station vanished for a long enough period of time, then the weapons would be launched. Russia openly admitted that they don’t even know where every single cold war launch site is hiding, and though they have tried their best to shut down all of them, it is believed a few may still be in operation. For this reason, the number station continues to be broadcast to this day to keep any of the unfound/unknown bunker sites from launching.

It is believed by some that if this particular number’s station ever went offline for more than a few days, it would mean nuclear armageddon. And they are all aimed at various locations in the US.
