Twitter can be a bad place. If it occupied any physical space in the real world, parents would surely warn their children to keep away or else risk losing their minds. But every once in a while, when the stars align in a perfect sort of way, Twitter decides to create something pure and beautiful to offer a contrast to the nonstop deluge of hatred and conflict you'll find there on a normal day.

Today, the stars have aligned. World, say hello to Bongo Cat.


@StrayRogue first introduced the world to the adorable little feline with the simple caption "smack smack."

There's no way @StrayRogue could have known how quickly his creation would become beloved. In the comments section, new versions of Bongo Cat were quickly born.

Bongo Cat even transcended platforms!


The new meme seems to have the ability to cheer almost anyone up!


Before long, the Bongo Cat was EVERYWHERE.




There's no limit to the instruments Bongo Cat can play.


The cat is so powerful, he's even taken corporeal form!


There's no point to fighting it. Sit back and enjoy the time of the Bongo Cat.




Oh and did I mention? This era will never end. Bongo Cat is an immortal deity.



Bongo Cat forever!



...and ever...and EVER.....AND EVER!

"This research suggests that people may be drawn to conspiracy theories when—compared with nonconspiracy explanations—they promise to satisfy important social psychological motives that can be characterized as epistemic (e.g., the desire for understanding, accuracy, and subjective certainty), existential (e.g., the desire for control and security), and social (e.g., the desire to maintain a positive image of the self or group)."

Whatever the motivations may be, we wanted to know which convoluted stories became apart of peoples consciousness enough for them to believe it.

I hate ghosts, even if it's Casper. My life is already stressful enough. I don't need to creeped out by spirits from the beyond. Shouldn't they be resting and basking in the glow of the great beyond instead of menacing the rest of us?

The paranormal seems to be consistently in unrest, which sounds like death isn't any more fun or tranquil than life. So much for something to look forward to.

Some ghosts just like to scare it up. It's not always like "Ghosthunters" the show.

Redditor u/Murky-Increase4705 wanted to hear about all the times we've faced some hauntings that left us shook, by asking:

Reddit, what are your creepy encounters with something that you are convinced was paranormal?

A lot of talk going on about women's bodies, isn't there?
