The Aztec’s Were Crazy

Once you can get past the terrible narration, you can appreciate the absolutely terrifying nature of this whistle.  It’s theorized that these whistles were used to strike fear in the enemies.  Or to send send the human brain into the next state of being.

I guess when you don’t have metallurgy, or guns, or those fun things, you have to make your own strange things to pass the time.

This video is somewhat easier to watch because the woman can carry a conversation better:

She also has a collection of whistles to blow though and terrify you with.

Creepy Abandoned Hotels

https://youtu.be/O8xRsZCr4T8?list=TLGGrjPuiLhtnQkyNjA4MjAxNw

Igloo City is my favorite one on the list.  Yes I have a soft spot in my heart for Alaska, I think it’s one of the most exotic ones because of it’s weird look.  It also looks like it was just abandoned.  Some of the others in the list are truly abandoned, and look like they’re about to fall down and that’s what makes them creepy.  This giant igloo in the middle of Alaska, that’s creepy.

Geode Skulls

I gotta say, these things look so ace.  The skills and craftsmanship that is necessary to carve them are amazing.  It’s also important to find geodes that are large enough to get a fully sized skull out of them.  Well, maybe not exactly life-sized.  But larger than a keychain anyway.

Mohawk Skull

As you can expect though, they are crazy expensive the larger and more intercriate you get.  This Mohawk one unfortunately has already been sold for $1,190.

You could have gotten this screaming skull for a cool $999.95, unfortunately that too has been sold.

Teeth

I couldn’t find this last skull on the store, it’s my favorite though.  The insides look like brains don’t they?

Prices seem to range from about $60, up to over $2,300, and size seems to range from small necklace up to full alien.  Yes, they carve alien skulls.  These will be the source of conspiracy theories in a few millennia.

50 Scary Spots of the States

Thought Catalog has put together a list of the best urban legends from all 50 of the US States.  Most are pretty meh, a few you can tell were grasping, but a few are truly out there.  Especially the ones seeped in truth and conspiracy.

At first I thought that the Idaho Pocatello High School ghost sighting looked like the best of the list, but after watching the video, it’s the standard “best ghost evidence ever” that’s the M.O. of those types of shows.  So in other words, nothing concrete is shown.  Here’s the video if you want to see:

However, if you live in Vermont, here’s a list of 10 scary urban legends from just that state.  Surprisingly, there’s no overlap between the two.  I like the Though Catalog pick though, it’s more paranormal.

This tower is pretty cool though, even if people jumped off it and ghosts haunt it now.

Creepy LEGO

LEGO House 1

Almost anything made out of LEGO is pretty cool.  These are pretty good works of art themselves.  The scene made, the lighting effects of the photos, all of it is really cool.

It’s hard to tell from the photos, but these are massive structures.  Probably big enough for small pets to live in at 5′ by 6′ by 3′.  The bottom house uses between 110 and 130, thousand individual LEGO bricks.  And, before you ask, yes it’s only black, grey, and white bricks.

McDonalds Hellscape

McDonalds 1

Art is weird.

I mean, look at the detail this person went to to make this super creepy McDonalds landscape:

McDonalds 2

It’s very detailed, and very percise, but it’s also very wrong.  Like, seriously, very wrong.  But it’s art, so someone likes it I guess.

Caving – For Real

Remember Ted The Caver, that was one of the best short stories I ever read on the internet.  If anyone knows of any other stories that are similar, please, let me know.

Robbie Shone is a real life caver, who actually spends his time going deep down into the bowels of the earth in natural, and man-made caverns.  His photographs don’t show the constricting, creepy nature that Ted’s story had, but still offer a sense of amazement.  I wouldn’t want to be in any of those places, especially since they are all artificially lighted.

Cave River

Why would you want to go in there?  That looks horribly like a death trap.  Holding onto a rope for your life while (what looks like) fast moving water is pushing you towards certain death.  It looks like a great photo, but that’s about the extent I’d want to see.

empty cave

That looks pretty cool.  Still eerie looking if you ask me.  It also looks like there’s a giant cliff that that guy is standing on.

 

cramped cave

That’s more like it if you ask me.  Has the Ted The Caver look and feel to it.

Pokemon Fusion (Kinda Stupid)

I don’t know if I’ve ever posted about the Pokemon Fusion site before, I know it’s been around for years, but it was never really interesting.  That is until I stumbled across this collection of images.

As a general rule of thumb, I don’t post fan art for a variety of reasons that include, but are not limited to:

  • It’s stupid
  • It takes something that’s a sprite and 8-bit, and adds an stupid amount of detail
  • It’s stupid
  • None of it looks good

That being said, I still agree with everything above, but I think there are some merits with the below pictures:

Zubro is an example of a really creepy Pokemon fusion.  Both it the sprite example, and the fan art.  However, it’s also a great example of adding a stupid amount of detail:

Zubro

 

If you try and fuse Starmie or Staryu with anyone else, it looks extra creepy, and extra awesome:

Starix

 

The fan art of Starking looks like a Digimon (and let’s be honest, Mega Evolution is basically a rip off of Digivolution)

Alternate History Thursday – Egyptians

In the age of the internet either everything on it is true, or everything on it is false.  It depends on how you intemperate the equation.  Anyway, in our current world, the above video is alittle skeptical, since it’s a video.

In our alternate history, we are traveling back in time to the age of the Egyptians.  Which just so happens to be 5 weeks ago 2 turns of the dial form Tango St. Alpha.  Here we find that the
Egyptians, or Echoguisaans as they call themselves, were world renowned scientists and knew everything there was to know about the natural, and scientific worlds.  They invented a few thousand different processes of science stuff.

One of them was the discovery of alternate universes.  This ground breaking discovery polarized their world.  Either it was the greatest discovery of all time, or it was the sign of the downfall of civilization.  (Spoiler, it was the downfall of their (and a few dozen other) civilizations).  After the first reports of the other side came  back the populous made pilgrimages to the other side.  The high demand directly led to the construction of more portal ports.  However, to quote Dr. Ian Malcolm:

If I may… Um, I’ll tell you the problem with the scientific power that you’re using here, it didn’t require any discipline to attain it. You read what others had done and you took the next step. You didn’t earn the knowledge for yourselves, so you don’t take any responsibility for it. You stood on the shoulders of geniuses to accomplish something as fast as you could, and before you even knew what you had, you patented it, and packaged it, and slapped it on a plastic lunchbox, and now

This statement from Jurassic Park accurately describes what the Echoguisaans had created.  For they didn’t know it, but each new portal they opened up didn’t actually end up in the same dimension, although it was thought that.  Each one was somewhat different.

It wasn’t proven until nearly 2/3 of the population had already migrated to the new lands, but by then it was too late.  The people had dispersed and inter mingled with the natives and were never going to leave.  Half of the remaining 1/3 of the population tried to get portals closed down for good, while the other half just tried to get somewhere else.

Eventually civil war broke out and the portals, like all scientific discoveries were turned into weapons.  Rebels took over key portal ports went over and then managed to reverse the polarity on the portal generating device and cause massive radiation bursts that led to direct connections to yet other dimensions.  These un/”natural” openings were not governed by science, and laws and so were opened into dimensions that didn’t abide by the same laws of physics that the Echoguisaans (or us regular humans) do.  The people quickly labeled the spirits, or ghosts, and rushed to destroy the remaining portal ports before any more could be turned into these spirit bombs.

After months of battling all the portal ports were shut down or destroyed.  In a first for humanity all the relevant information regarding their creation, implementation, and organization was voluntarily destroyed.  In the following years the “spirits” trapped in their world abides by their own laws and lived out their lives as best they could.  But since we have no understanding of where they came from, how they got here, what they’re doing, or what they want, we don’t understand them.  We can’t communicate with them, all we can do is watch them move an ancient statue of their old friends hoping to get noticed and eventually maybe return home.  Or just mess with us cause it’s fun.
