This Girl Having A Panic Attack While Diving Is The Scariest Thing You’ll See All Day

If you’ve ever had a panic attack in your life, you know that they are absolutely awful. While a panic attack on dry land is bad enough, imagine having one while you’re scuba diving 50 feet underwater. If you think that sounds harrowing, seeing it happen will make your whole body tense up.

The following video was recorded by a scuba instructor in South Africa last summer. He was out with a group when one student panicked. She spit out her regulator and took off her mask.

Unable to calm her, the instructor initiated an emergency ascent. This girl is lucky to be alive.

After watching that, I feel like I’m seriously on the verge of having a panic attack myself. This is why I don’t like to swim (or to be near large bodies of water in general). Excuse me while I kiss the solid ground.

This Guy Was Filming A Bird…Only To Realize That It Definitely Wasn’t A Bird

Winter is coming, and apparently, so are dragons.

Recently, a man shot a video that some are saying is footage of a real dragon…or a pterodactyl. No one is really sure, but what we do know is that the video was taken near the border between China and Laos. This border is roughly 263 miles long and ironically, it contains the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. At first, the man thought he was filming a bird, but he quickly realized that it looked like something else entirely.

Watch the bizarre footage and decide for yourself: Is this a clever hoax or a real-life dragon?

Hilarious Snowman Halloween Prank Is Back And Better Than Ever (Video)

Though it began several years ago, the Scary Snowman Prank is still going strong. This year, the guys behind the prank decided to start their fun a little early, just in time for Halloween.

The snowman was set up outside of Style Newport on a busy pedestrian street in Newport, RI, and at first glance, it simply looks like a grumpy wintertime decoration.

Watch as unsuspecting passersby get spooked by the giant snowman and react accordingly. Some jump, some yell, some swear, one slaps — it’s a medley of hilarity.

Head to the Scary Snowman’s YouTube page to see all of the pranks from past years.

Giant Wolf Spiders Are Scarier Than Anything You’ll See On Halloween (Video)

There are certainly a lot of things in this world to be fearful of, like Ebola (especially now that it’s come to New York), sharks and evil clowns.

But nothing — and I mean nothing — is as scary as what you’re about to see.

Facebook user Bobby Brown was in a garage when he spotted this monstrous wolf spider. According to his description, the massive arachnid was an estimated 4 inches wide, its body alone nearly the size of a Gatorade cap.

If the size of the spider isn’t enough to make you sick, wait until the end of the clip, when the cameraman zooms in to reveal thousands of little baby spiders clinging to the creature’s back.

It is quite possibly the worst thing you’ll ever see in your entire life. If you think you can stomach it, watch the clip up top — but know that you’ve been warned.

Grizzly Bear Charges Mountain Bikers (Video)

Two mountain bikers had a scary close encounter with a grizzly bear sow that charged at them while riding the trails of Jasper National Park in Alberta, Canada. If you watch the video closely you can see the bear(s) appear at 0:34, 0:40 and 2:40 mark. Feel free to skip everything between 0:50 and 2:00. I recommend viewing it in full screen and 720p:

The full story from Brad Paras who filmed the footage:

While mountain biking in Jasper, Alberta on August 4, 2013, my cousin Dan and I were charged by a grizzly sow three times.

We were riding single track just outside of Jasper town-site (9c) when the encounter occurred. I rode to the top of a hill and applied the brakes to wait for Dan and plan my descent. My brakes squealed a bit, then I heard a growl and looked to my right to see a grizzly bear charging at me.

After careening down the hill a bit on my bike, I was able to distance myself from the bear. According to Dan, who was subsequently charged, the sow stopped on the trail where I had been standing.

When Dan arrived on the scene, he created a distraction, which drew the bear to him. He managed to grab the bear spray from his bag in time to brace himself, but the bear stopped approximately 10 meters from him – just outside the spray’s effective range. Frankly, I’m glad we didn’t have to injure the mother in any way.

Meanwhile, I worked my way along the bottom of the gully toward Dan so that I wasn’t alone in the rough bush. As I reached him, the sow and her cub charged toward us slightly once more before heading away in the direction that we had come from.

We waited a few minutes, then walked away from the scene along the trail with bear spray in hand.

I’ll Have To Leave Every Light On Tonight Because Of These Creepy Stories!

Lots of terribly creepy stories circulate through society around Halloween. People love to feel frightened, even if they know the tales about ghosts and ghouls aren’t true…

But these campfire stories aren’t just fiction. Each have a ring of truth to them. Although we can’t prove that these certainly took place, read them for yourself.

…and leave the light on tonight.

1.) The Ourang Medan

In February 1948, several ships near Indonesia picked up distress calls from the Dutch freighter, SS Ourang Medan. In broken, accented English, a man stated, “All officers including captain are dead lying in chartroom and bridge. Possibly whole crew dead.” Indecipherable Morse code followed the message, then one final grisly message: “I die.” When search parties boarded, they found all crew and officers of the Ourang Medan dead, their eyes open, faces looking towards the sun, arms outstretched, and a look of terror on their faces. Even the ship’s dog was dead. The bodies appeared unharmed. The ship suddenly caught fire and sunk, erasing all evidence of its existence.

2.) Deadliest Phone Number

First issued in Bulgaria in 2000, every person who had the cell phone number 0888-888-888 has died in a terrible manner. In fact, it claimed the lives of at least 3 people; one by a sudden onset of cancer and two others in a hail of bullets. The number was suspended indefinitely in 2007.

3.) The Man in the Mask

The book and movie The Man in the Iron Mask was based on an actual person. In 1669, King Louis XIV sent a man to the Fortress of Pignerol who was neither charged, tried, or convicted of any crime. He had to wear a mask of velvet and whalebone. He was even assigned a special guard to make sure he was not seen, heard, or recognized. After moving to several prisons, the masked man died in 1703, with no one but the king of France knowing who he was or why he was incarcerated.

4.) Abe Lincoln’s Dream

Just before he was shot, Abraham Lincoln told several members of his cabinet, as well as his wife, Mary, about a dream he had. In his dream, Lincoln saw a soldier standing by a casket and heard people weeping. “Who is dead in the White House?” Lincoln asked a soldier in his dream. “The President,” he was told.

5.) Devilish Twin

Edward Mordrake, a handsome and talented man, was born with another face on the back of his head…a girl’s. Although it couldn’t eat or speak, the face’s eyes moved independently from Mordrake and could even laugh and cry. Edward begged to have his “devil twin” removed, but no doctor would attempt it. He committed suicide at the age of 23.

6.) The Missing Brother

On September 20, 1885, a man received a letter from his dead brother of 13 years. The letter informed him that he was mentally ill and still alive. The handwriting on the letter matched his brother’s, so he had his coffin exhumed, only to find it empty. Although the letter said that the brother planned to visit, he never came, and no further communication was ever received.

7.) Curse of the Mongul Tomb

On June 21, 1941, Soviet archaeologists opened the tomb and removed the skull of a Great Mongol Khan named Timur. They did this despite warnings by the locals that disrupting the tomb would lead to a great war. The next day was when Operation Barbarossa happened, and was the longest and most brutal invasion carried out during WWII. Hundreds of thousands died within the first weeks.

8.) Bloody Stains

Students at Sydney’s Riverwood Primary School returned from summer break to find 1.5 liters of unexplained blood in the school playhouse. For an adult, 1.5 liters is about 30 percent of total blood volume. DNA tests so far only tell us that it belonged to a human male and the DNA doesn’t match anyone in the database. No explanation was ever discovered for the blood.

9.) Undeveloped Film

In 1997, Rita Swift found an undeveloped roll of film while looking through a guest room’s cedar chest. The note attached stated “Taken in our backyard, 1969.” The first 16 photos were quite typical, but #17 through 19 showed what pictures from another time. The camera was a Brownie Hawkeye 20, and the images were shot hot using 620 black and white film. However, the last three photos look like they were taken with a pinhole camera and depict several people dressed in mid-1800s Native American garb. The first photo is a close-up of three men dancing in a body of water. The second shows a large animal, like a cow or an ox, and several people surrounding it. The third is of a large fire and a large group of people dancing in a circle.

10.) Possessed Limbs

Since childhood, George Boyer “wanted to be one-legged.” Therapists convinced him that this desire was irrational, but at the age of 68, his bizarre desire became too urgent to ignore any longer. He planned the amputation, and when the big day arrived, he sat down in his backyard, stuck his leg out, and pulled the trigger. The shot only partially severed the limb. With blood spurting everywhere, he had to struggle to fasten a tourniquet to his shattered leg, then call for an ambulance. After making it to the hospital alive, the Florida man had to persuade his doctors to amputate the leg rather than save it. After 12 days, they agreed to remove it…and the one-legged George lived happily ever after.

11.) Edgar Allen Poe’s Story

In Edgar Allan Poe’s 1838 story, “The Narrative Of Arthur Gordon Pym Of Nantucket,” three starving shipwreck survivors murder and consume their companion, Richard Parker. In 1884, three real-life shipwrecked sailors were tried for the murder of the fourth sailor. His name was also Richard Parker, and he was also eaten.

12.) She Lives In The Walls

A 57-year-old man in Japan set up security cameras inside his house after realizing that some of his items and food were missing. He watched the video one day later and saw a small woman sneak out of a bedroom cupboard. She ate his food, stole some money, and even took a shower. Before dawn, she disappeared into the cupboard again. Thinking her to be a one time thief, the man called the police to report her. After a thorough search though, the police discovered the woman still hiding in the cupboard. She had reportedly lived in it for over a year without the elderly man being aware.

There’s no shame in sleeping with a light on tonight. Or with a security blanket.
