Whether you're interested in mysterious disappearances, serial killers, disturbing controversies, or even perusing declassified CIA documents, the internet can deliver.

Those Wikipedia rabbit holes always lead somewhere a bit more unsettling as we learned once Redditor TheFalcor asked the online community, "What is the creepiest mystery/rabbit hole you have stumbled upon on the internet?"


"Their skin..."

"Green children of Woolpit"

Two kids randomly showed up out of nowhere in a village called Woolpit in England. Both the children were green and spoke an unknown language. Their skin lost its green color soon after and they only ate beans. One of the kids died from an illness and the the other grew up and learned to speak English. She said she was from a different planet made up of green people. Anyways, this happened in the 12th century and many don't think it actually happened.

"I suppose..."

Not creepy maybe but very curious and weird, that story about some person called Msscribe who pretended to be several people in some Harry Potter forums just to create drama. I suppose the level of commitment and the depth of the webs she spun makes it a bit creepy. I always wondered what went on in that mind.

"There are some..."

The Dyatlov Pass incident, the story about nine Russian hikers found dead in 1959 and no one really knows what happened. There are some crazy theories though.

"Some of her captions..."

There's a YouTuber called "Kate Yup" and all her videos are ASMR of her eating seafood. There are several theories that she is kidnapped or suffering some sort of violence because of hints in her videos. Some of her captions had hidden messages like help or sos and she has made videos with bruises on her arms. Also, she made a video where she ate 12 HONEYCOMBS. Someone could be forcing her to to eat these large and unhealthy amounts of food. The whole channel is honestly just scary.

"Some people say..."

Trepanning - It's literally drilling a hole in your head. I remember getting far enough down that rabbit hole - out of curiosity only - and reading some peoples' instructional guides on how to do it 'safely'. Some people say they get high from it, others say they do it for some spiritual/transcendent feeling of relief. But drilling a hole in your own head is actually a thing some people do.

"It stopped being funny..."

Pizzagate, a lot of people in my social circle back then were into it (I was in some pretty lousy social circles if that wasn't a big enough hint) and I just sat back and watched these people drive themselves nuts trying to prove that a pizza joint had a child sex trafficking dungeon in the basement. It stopped being funny when somebody actually showed up at the place with a gun demanding that the children be released, or something like that.

"While I believe..."

The entire story and all the stuff online about Flight M370, kinda creeps me out.

While I believe the Twitter thing that happened some time after, with a guy receiving a message from, what was assumed to be, the black box from flight M370, was debunked as fake, there's still some very interesting proof and theories about this mystery.

And I think stuff like the Bermuda triangle have always been really interesting.

"A website..."

A website that shares videos of a bunch of autopsy photos and documents, detective evidence, execution videos and photos and general graphic things that happen to people in general.

It's a bad place and I refuse to share it. I found it in college around 2014 and never went back since.

"A few years ago..."

A few years ago I read about the FBI or CIA releasing some documents and decided to go and read a few. Found some from a couple of decades ago (I believe the 1970's). Anyway, there were some documents about mutilated cattle in some midwestern and western states. Genitalia cut, tongues removed, organs missing, etc. Clearly not wolves. I don't know if they found out what it was (I didn't read all of them) but definitely an interesting read.

"How to build a time machine"

Two piqued my interest, one from years ago about a man that left instructions in an Australian restaurant on how to build a time machine, I think he claimed people were after him? I've not been able to source it since.

The other is John Titor, apparently sent back in time to retrieve a rare IBM part to kickstart computers again, he purported the many universes theory and seemed to know his stuff. Lots can be found on him.

Also, if you fancy the far out, Bedtime Stories on YouTube is well worth listening to.

And David Paulides Missing: 411 interviews are eery af.

"Pretty Darn Creepy"

Maybe not a mystery, but Delta P and the Byford Dolphin Incident is pretty darn creepy.

arcsine

It was an accident that took place on a diving bell for divers doing deep depth work in an oil rig. Essentially, the four man dive team was supposed to enter a little dive bell, which was then brought onto the rig and attached to a larger decompression chamber by two dive tenders. The divers would enter the chamber, the chamber's door would be sealed, and then the dive bell would be removed. After that the divers would be free to slowly decompress in the relative safety of the chamber. At least, that was what was supposed to happen.


Instead the divers had entered the chamber, when one of the tenders began to remove the bell without the chamber door being sealed. The one mystery in all this is why the render made that mistake, but it's possible exhaustion and difficulty hearing over noise on the rig played a roll. Most newer chambers have safety systems that prevent the bell from being detached under pressure, but the old system on the Dolphin didn't, and the chamber was under a lot of pressure.

The resulting explosive depressurization killed five out of the six people involved, and left the surviving dive tender badly injured. Three of the divers had their blood start to boil the second the chamber failed, which caused the fat in their blood to separate and clump in a matter of seconds. The fourth diver, who was closest to the door, was instantly sucked through the 24 inch gap between the chamber and dive bell, shredding his body. The only real silver lining is that everyone who died did so pretty much instantly, likely without feeling any fear or pain.

"You don't keep a project for years"


CIA and projects of remote viewing. You don't keep a project for years without results. Stuff like MK ULTRA. You cant tell me the CIA and FBI dont know something paradigm-changing that they keep from us. Bob Lazar and everything he came out with. that one super-secret clearance high-up joint chief of staff who called a government agency (i believe national reconnaissance agency?) Saying "I want to be brief on what you do essentially no one here knows" and they said to this powerful man" we know who you are and if you needed to know something well tell you"

There is surely a load of world-changing life-changing information and techniques that could put us in a new age that is locked away under the keeping of 100 men

Well that was a close call. That is everyone's main life mantra. If you really think about it, you'll know it to be true. Everyday we live, is another day we've survived, and death isn't the only thing we frequently sidestep. I have lost track of the amount of times my heart has almost gotten me into trouble. If I had been able to be with the people I thought I wanted in the past, I'd be in a mental ward right about now. Dodging a bullet doesn't even begin to cover it.

Redditor u/Not-an-Ocelot wanted to hear about the times that have made people give some extra thanks by asking... What's the biggest bullet you've ever dodged?

When your time is up, your time is up. And when we march off into the afterlife it feels like everyone wants one of two or two things. People want to go out in a blaze of glory and/or in peace and without pain. I don't know if both is possible but I'll choose option two please. What I know for sure is I definitely don't want to be smoted by a stupid death. Like, Lord, please don't let me die choking on fried chicken and an XL frozen Appletini at the Dallas BBQ because I was laughing to hard at my own jokes. Please.

Redditor u/BlueD_ wanted everyone to fess up about the times they almost met their maker in a less than dignified manner by asking... What's the dumbest way you almost died?

We may not know it, but sometimes things that seem routine or are just one of our personal habits can really hold back our lives.

One little change to cut those things, or to include new things, can really change the quality of our lives for the better. We have to be willing to drop old routines, which is hard and scary; and we need to be willing to accept new ideas into our space, which is also hard and scary.
