Okay, What. The. Hell. Happened?!?

A group of experienced Russian hikers disappeared on a skiing trip. Their camp was discovered with tents ripped open from the inside, bodies half dressed (in winter, in Russia) and stained orange and with massive internal injuries that could not have been caused by other humans—as if they had been in a car crash. The final verdict was that the hikers died of a “compelling natural force.” Never has something so vague been so terrifying.

Supervolcano

A supervolcano is a volcano that can cause a “supereruption” big enough to cause an “extinction event.” The people who aren’t killed by lava will die when all the ash in the air blocks the sun and causes everyone to freeze death.

Just FYI there is one of these under Yellowstone and some people say it is overdue for an eruption. I am in the immediate die zone.

Next time you swim in open water imagine this cephalopod buddy cozying up to your legs. Not only is it huge and yucky looking, the colossal squid has rotating blades all over its body. That is just egregiously horrifying.

Sleep Paralysis

Whenever I sleep on my back I have dreams where I realize I am dreaming and try to move my body or scream without being able to. Some people think this is caused by a demon sitting on my chest. Sweet dreams!
