10 Most Funny Doomsday Predictions Ever

10 Most Funny Doomsday Predictions Ever

From the doomsday chicken hoax to the Shemitah 2015. Our Video On This: 10) Doomsday Hen: In 1806, a common hen started laying eggs with the words “Christ is coming” written on them. This led to mass panic with the local townsfolk believing it to signal the apocalypse. And when they found out it was just a hoax… they were really angry. The owner of the hen was Mary Bateman, and she simply wrote the words by hand. It is probably not by coincidence that she was soon accused of being a witch. After the execution strips of her skin were sold as lucky charms to protect from evil spirits. 9) Joanna Southcott: Joanna Southcott was a self-proclaimed biblical prophet. In 1792 she started claiming to be the woman chosen by god to give birth to Jesus for the second coming. In 1814 she announced that she was pregnant and would give birth to the Messiah on Christmas. She died on the day of her prediction and the autopsy found that she wasn’t even pregnant. She was just crazy. But she was said to have over 100 thousand followers. Her followers refused to bury her body for months expecting her to rise from the dead. But she never did. 8) New England’s Dark Day: New England’s dark day is the name given to the 19th of May 1780. On this day the sky was unusually dark during the hours of day when it should have been bright. It was as dark as night so people were forced to carry candles. The theory is that it was caused by a combination...
10 Most Epic Underground Cities

10 Most Epic Underground Cities

An underground city is a series of linked up underground areas… I have a list on the best ones. Our Video On This: 10) Wieliczka:Deep inside the Wieliczka salt mine, in Poland, is a huge underground city. As miners often spent their entire lives underground, they carved out dozens of statues and four chapels within the mine. They also carved out 3km of corridors, over 20 chambers, and even a tavern. Which makes sense – miners love their alcohol – even miners in underground cities. The most impressive part of the city is the chapel of st. King which is visited by around 1 million people each yearThe city also features an underground lake, and according to mythology, a family of goblins live on an artificial island in the middle of it. The mine was built in the 13th century and produced salt from then up until 2007. Many of the statues in the mine depict mythical creatures. So it sounds like a really fun place… apart from the drunk tourists stumbling around in the dark. Further reading 9) Beijing Underground City: Below the streets of Beijing is a huge underground city. Built by chairman Mao during the 1970s, it’s purpose was to house the population of Beijing in the event of a nuclear war with the Soviet Union. Stretching 85 square kilometres, it is often referred to as the underground great wall. It was constructed by over 300,000 workers and dug mostly by hand. Which doesn’t sound like it would be very effective. Built inside the city are schools, hospitals, farms, factories, theatres, warehouses, and living areas. The complex...
10 People You Won’t Believe Actually Exist

10 People You Won’t Believe Actually Exist

From the real-life Papa Smurf to an Indian child with super hands, these are 10 people You won’t Believe actually exist. Our Top 10 video on this: 10) Michele Kobke: 24 year old Michele Kobke made headlines in 2013 due to her tiny 16 inch waist. Unlike many others in this list, who were born differently from other babies, she made the conscious choice to modify her body. By sleeping in a corset every night for 3 years she reduced her waist by 9 inches. Even know her waist is actually smaller than most 2 year olds, she still wears tight corsets with the hope goal of slimming down by another 2 inches – a goal that doctors have warned against. They warn her that if she continues to do this, the damage to her spine may prevent her from being able to stand up. She already suffers from the blatant health problems that come with having a stomach that small. Which sounds quite bad to us modern humans… but back in the Victorian era she would have been the talk of the town. Further reading 9) Mandy Sellars: Many Sellars is Unique. She suffers from a condition that has never been discovered in another human. She was born with legs twice the size of other babies – and as she grew into adulthood her legs and feet never stopped growing. To this day doctors are baffled by Mandy’s genetics. In 2010 they were forced to amputate one of her legs. But 22 months after the surgery, the leg started to grow back. At this point the new leg weighs...
10 Ghost Sightings Caught On Tape

10 Ghost Sightings Caught On Tape

It’s hard to tell the true stories behind these ghost sightings. You will have to decide for yourself wether or not they are real. OUR VIDEO ON THIS: The pieces of footage(as seen in the video above): 10) Our first video is a segment of security footage that emerged in 2013. It appears to show a man leave his apartment and walk down the corridor before being suddenly attacked by a dark entity. Some claim the man was attacked by a type of ghost called a shadow person, and that it was trying to drag him into the underworld. 9) Our next video comes from the 8th oldest pub in Britain. Ye olde man and scythe pre-dates the 14th century and was once used to hold prisoners before their execution. Some disturbing cctv footage of the pub has been released. A shadowy figure can be seen flickering behind the bar. The security camera mysteriously stopped recording at 6:18 AM. It is said to be the ghost of the Earl of Derby, who was executed there in 1651. 8) In 2009 a video was recorded at Dover castle in England. The video appears to show a ghostly figure walking across a road. A security guard then runs in frame. We can only assume that he saw the figure and approached the area in disbelief. But he finds no answer. 7) From a creepy theatre we have footage of a chair appearing to move on it’s own. The footage was recorded at night when no one was in the building. The really creepy thing is that this activity happened shortly after a psychic had performed there. That...
