These Mysterious Patterns On The Ocean Floor Have a Surprising Explanation

It’s not often that we look for evidence of extraterrestrial life at the bottom of the ocean, but if aliens did want to hide their existence from us, the ocean would be a pretty good place to do it. That’s why when researchers find something freaky on the ocean floor, my inner conspiracy theorist immediately starts shouting, “Aliens!” Take this beautiful, odd-looking geometric pattern on the ocean floor, for example. It was found off the coast of Japan’s Amami-Ōshima Island. YouTube / Marinestation Amami The pattern is made of sculpted…

These Sounds From Ancient Stars Are Pretty Freaky

In space, no one can hear you scream because it’s a vacuum, and sound — as we know it here on Earth — can’t travel through nothing. However, that doesn’t mean there are no other sounds. In fact there’s a whole field dedicated to researching the hidden sounds of the universe. It’s called asteroseismology. Asteroseismologists measure the vibrations of stars. The frequency at which different stars vibrate can give scientists an incredible amount of data about what each star is made of. These vibrations can also be processed to create…

NASA Cut Their Live ISS Feed After This Bizarre Object Appeared In The Background

NASA might be the leading space exploration agency, but they sure seem like they want to stop us (the public) from finding out about alien crafts watching us from orbit. With a disturbing regularity, the cameras on the outside of the International Space Station (ISS), which are always streaming, seem to capture unexplained objects hovering in the distance. However, without fail, almost as soon as these objects are spotted, NASA cuts the live feed. The latest example of this happened just last week when a horseshoe-shaped UFO was spotted hovering…

When Traveling To Colombia, Beware Of Devil’s Breath…It Can Turn You Into A Zombie

You might say that these days, the world is experiencing a bit of a thawing period concerning the war on drugs. Of course, the majority of them are still illegal, however, punishments for possession and recreational use of these substances have been significantly reduced in many parts of the world. That being said, there are still some drugs out there that you should stay away from forever and ever. One of those drugs is a mysterious substance known as “Devil’s Breath.” Burandanga or Devil’s Breath, as it’s widely know, is…

R.I.P. Prince…But Is His Death Part Of A Massive Conspiracy Involving Chemtrails?

The world was shocked this week to learn of the death of award-winning musician Prince. At the time of this writing, the cause of Prince’s death has not been released to the public, but there is plenty of speculation out there. While, of course, reasonable explanations have arisen, there are also the slightly unhinged explanations for Prince’s death flooding social media. The craziest so far has got to be from Alex Jones over at Infowars. Jones believes that Prince may have been the victim of a government conspiracy. The reason?…

This Is Why You Don’t Mess With Sharks…Watch A Spearfisher Get Attacked On Camera

Common sense dictates that if you’re spearfishing and you see a shark nearby that you leave it the heck alone. Nothing is going to anger these killing machines faster than poking them with pointy metal spears. If you ignore this piece of advice, things will turn bloody and horrible for you. Don’t believe me? Then allow me to present the following video of a not-so-bright spearfisher in Australia doing exactly what we just talked about… This guy is lucky to be alive. (via Daily Mail) Nothing about this video is…

In The Water, It’s A Fireworm, But On Land? It’s Pure Nope!

I don’t think it’s controversial to say that ocean-dwelling creatures are pretty much the worst. Sure, on land we have spiders and rabid animals, but those things that inhabit the deep sea are so creepy, especially when you consider just how little we know about them. One critter that we do know a bit about is the innocent-sounding bearded fireworm. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBP_ATF’); }); The bearded fireworm is a kind of marine bristleworm native to the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea. Wikipedia googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBM_BTF’); }); If we’re making comparisons,…

Even Different Species Of Coral Fight Each Other…The Animal Kingdom Is Brutal

It’s no secret that the animal kingdom is harsh. When it comes to survival, most non-human animals have to kill or be killed. When we think of animals competing for food and breeding rights, we typically envision beasts like lions and sharks duking it out. As it turns out, however, the same aggression extends itself across the animal kingdom, and it affects even the most innocent creatures, like coral. We often forget that coral reefs are made up of living beings, and like all other animals, they must fight for…

This Man Was Able To Survive Underwater For 3 Days Before His Rescue

Life doesn’t always work out the way you want it to. Maybe you didn’t get that promotion, or maybe, if you’re anything like Harrison Okene, the ship you were working on capsized, sunk, and left you trapped inside of a rapidly shrinking air bubble for three days. It might sound insane, but this actually happened. Okene had to survive for three days inside of a capsized boat at the bottom of the ocean before being rescued. Okene was working as a cook on a tug boat operating off the coast…

They Go To The Desert Each Day To Dump Toxic Waste, And It’s So Illegal

By this point, it should go without saying that dumping toxic waste is illegal. Still, it’s something that a surprising number of companies regularly do. YouTuber Luke Murray works for one of those companies. In a video uploaded this week, Murray says that his employer is forcing him and his coworkers to dump and then burn two or three barrels of toxic waste products every night in the Nevada desert. Murray zooms in on the barrels for a moment during the video, and each one is labeled Hocut 795-H. According…
