21 Creepy Wikipedia Pages That Will Have You Locking Your Doors Tonight

4. Chelyabinsk meteor

This was the 2013 meteor that hit Russia. 1,491 people were injured and there’s basically nothing stopping another from hitting your city. Or a bunch of them falling everywhere like the apocalypse making it rain.

5. The Lottery

The Lottery is a short story by Shirley Jackson that originally appeared in The New Yorker in 1948. The story itself is creepy, but not terrifying (it’s basically the OG Hunger Games). Reading the Wikipedia article, however, makes you reflect on the themes of the story and how realistic it is that our society could end up doing something like this. It’s too real.

6. Armin Meiwes

Hannibal
Hannibal

Armin Meiwes was a German cannibal who found someone who voluntarily let him kill and eat him on the internet. Before the victim died, Meiwes severed the guy’s penis and they shared it.

Meiwes has since become a vegetarian but claims there are “about 800” cannibals in Germany.
