These Creepy Photos Will Probably Never Be Explained…

Uncategorized
3. This painting is fairly old, so why is there a UFO in it?! Is it a meteorite?! Is it aliens?! What do they know that we don’t?!?! 4. These lights appeared over Phoenix in 1997. The Air Force claimed that they were flares, but then they reappeared in exactly the same place in 2007 and 2008. More flares? Or some sort of alien spaceship? You decide… 5. Is it a ghost? Is it a demon? Is it a child on a camping trip? We will probably never know folks. We will probably never know… 6. This photo was taken in 1941. So why has that man got cool sunglasses on?! Time-travelling hipster…? 7. NASA ‘took’ this ‘photo’ during their last ‘flight’ to the ‘moon’. A likely story… If it was taken on the moon, then why is th...

Woman Explains Why She Paid To Have Her Daughter Kidnapped

Woman Explains Why She Paid To Have Her Daughter Kidnapped

Uncategorized
In a Guardian column published this morning, an anonymous woman has discussed her decision to have her 17-year-old daughter “kidnapped” and sent to a tough boot camp in Utah. As she explains, she’d always had high hopes for her children but, as a teenager, her daughter started hanging around with a bad crowd. She developed “an attitude”, her grades dropped and then she declared her intention to drop out of school, and become a hairdresser. As her mum wrote: “I was distraught. There is nothing wrong with hairdressing, but I wanted her to get a proper education first, so she would have choices.” Desperate, knowing that once her daughter turned 18, she wouldn’t be under her control any more, this woman researched and found a boot camp for tro...
Six Glaringly Obvious Gaps In ‘Stranger Things’ That Need Filling

Six Glaringly Obvious Gaps In ‘Stranger Things’ That Need Filling

Uncategorized
Stranger Things is one of those shows that you binge-watch it, excitedly taking in all the “facts” being presented to you and just like an excitable child at Christmas accept all of them as honest truth, because all you care about is where the hell Will is and how he’s going to be rescued from this real-life dungeons and dragons saga. But just like Christmas, when you have some time to reflect, you realise that all isn’t as it seems. In the same way that a man was never going to shove his arse down your chimney (who has a fucking chimney these days anyway?) without either dying or being arrested, there’s no way that a group of twelve year old boys would be allowed out of the house to go “demogorgon” hunting when one of their best friends has just...

8 Amazingly Cool Places From Harry Potter You Can Visit In Real life

Every time you watch a Harry Potter film, you can’t help but think it’s one of the coolest looking franchises ever. Regardless if you like the films/books or not, stylistically, it’s amazing. Thing is though, what with it being a work of fiction, you can’t visit the world of Harry Potter. You can, however, visit some of the cool places from our real world that feature in the blockbuster films… Platform 9 3/4 Very much the portal into the wizarding world (or at least one of them), Platform 9 3/4 is in Kings Cross Station, predictably between platform 9 and 10.

This Harry Potter Fan Theory Could Explain Why Uncle Vernon Hates Magic So Much

This Harry Potter Fan Theory Could Explain Why Uncle Vernon Hates Magic So Much

Uncategorized
Uncle Vernon hates magic to such an extent that he drags his family to an isolated rock in the middle of the sea to avoid it. He doesn’t even like Harry, you’d think he’d enjoy the idea of him being shipped off to boarding school for the vast majority of the year. But no. He’s completely adverse to magic, abhors everything it stands for, and does everything he can to keep it out of his life. But why? One reddit user has an interesting hypothesis. Referencing the recent stories that J.K Rowling published on Pottermore, he suggested that Vernon Dursley might be descended from “scourers”. Now, in case you haven’t read the new stories, scourersare wizards, but not good ones: “[They’re] an unscrupulous band of wizarding mercenaries of m...

Beirut Attacks: The Hero Who Sacrificed His Life To Save Hundreds From Suicide Bomber

Uncategorized
His amazing act of courage killed him, but he has been hailed as a hero after his sacrifice saved dozens, if not hundreds of lives. Today, the news of his daughters survival has been celebrated by thousands. Elie Fares, a Beirut-based physician, told PRI that many families, hundreds of families probably owe their completeness to his sacrifice. Isis have since claimed responsibility for the attack on social media, but this is yet to be officially verified. Many have taken to Twitter to hail Termos as a hero and to remember his selfless act and other victims. Tammam Salam, Lebanons Prime Minister, condemned the attacks and described them as unjustifiable – he called forhis citizens to unite against plans to create strife. The bombing is the deadliest in the capital since the end of Le...

‘Raven’ From That Classic CBBC Show Looks Seriously Different Now

When you’re only eleven years old I’m pretty sure there’s no such thing as a shit TV show. You’re so wide eyed and impressionable that you can’t help but find yourself awed by shows about kids being cooland taking on mythical challenges. This is where ‘Raven’ comes in. There was one badass guy who was the raven, who helped the kids on their quest and awarded them golden rings.

There are plenty of pretty great festivals available in Europe these days, if you can tear yourself away from the tradition of the classic British few. But the toughest part is picking which one. Do you go for one of the one in anamazing far away location with great views for instagram and memory-making, but an obscure line-up of small bands you’ve never heard of?

A year ago Lady Gaga revealed during an interview on SiriusXM that she had been raped as a teenager and now she has opened up on the documentary The Hunting Ground”, explaining how the experience molded her as a person. The 29-year-old music icon said: I didnt tell anyone for, I think, seven years. I didnt know how to think about it. I didnt know how to accept it. I didnt know how not to blame myself, or think it was my fault. It was something that really changed my life. It changed who I was completely. It changed my body, it changed my thoughts. Gaga said that the pain lasts for much longer than a single night. When you go through a trauma like that, it doesnt just have the immediate physical ramifications on you.

Everyone knows Neil Buchanan from Art Attack, right? He was thebright and cheery guy who gave us some seriously killer advice on how to use felt tips and glitter. When we were all enthralled by his amazing bits of large scale garden artwork and his love of sequins and PVA glue, he was secretly living his dream of being a rockstar on the side. No joke. It has transpired that the glue stick wielding TV presenter has been a part of rock band Marsielle since 1976, fourteen years before Art Attack began inspiring kids to make a mess. Marseille were the first band to win the UK Battle Of The Bands at Wembley, a victory that came thanks to judges Brian May and Roger Taylor of Queen fame. Neil went on to become more famous for his seriously big collages in random outdoor spaces, but deep dow...

Claiming that your upcoming horror filmis one of the “scariest ever” is a risky move. First off, it’s going to generate a lot of hype. People will be expecting your film to make them cry, scream and sweat. They’ll want their heart to pound, their blood pressure up and their knuckles white. They’ll want to leave the cinema, knees shaking, and they’ll be expecting to not sleep for a week. Claimingthat you’re releasing one of “the scariest movies ever”will get people into the cinemas, but albeit with such sky-high expectations, that – no matter how good your film is – they might not be satisfied when they come out… For upcoming horror The Woods, however, Lionsgate are risking those, “doesn’t live up to...

I’ll never forget my favorite memory from my first music festival. My best friend and I were sitting in a giant field, listening to Ben Harper sing in the sunshine, surrounded by a couple thousand peaceful and happy people. She turned to me and said, Man, if hippies ruled the world. I knew exactly what she meant. If we could just craft a lifestyle where everyone got together over what we had in common rather than what separated us, the world would be a better place. As we drove out of the festival on the last day, I remember looking around at all the garbage left behind. The previously picturesque farm was littered with broken styrofoam coolers, abandoned tents and piles of garbage. If we were hippies, we would be doing a really bad job if giventhe chance to rule the world. Music fe...

This past Saturday, I saw Phish perform. Not in person, though. The actual band was playing three nights at some lavish resort in Riviera Maya, Mexico — any true “Phans” dream — but I caught the concert at some bar around the block from my apartment that was streaming the webcast. I deemed it the next best thing to physically being at the concert. And while those who actually made the trip to Mexico may have had an extra $2,000 — and a week off work — to spare, I dont think they were any more loyal than the rest of us. Not even a little bit. I mean, all of us in attendance spent our Saturday night packed into an overly-crowded dive bar solely to watching the concert on a projector screen — if thats not dedication, I dont know what is.

We’re hoping that that time is just showing off to your mates on a camping trip and not when you’re actually in survival mode (unless that’s your kind of buzz, in which case you probably know this already and your mates call you Bear Grylls) This cool little trick for starting a fire is so brilliant because it’s so simple.  So if you are going camping this year, or you’re going to one of the festivals that allows fires, then store this nugget somewhere safe in your brain to be used at the appropriate moment.  Read more: http://www.hellou.co.uk/2015/01/cutting-gum-wrapper-half-survival-technique-know-35088/

This Firefighter Received The World’s Most Extensive Face Transplant

Uncategorized
Patrick Hardison used to joke with children that he had fought a bear. If anything, the way he actually got his scars was even more heroic. Running into a burning building to rescue a woman in 2001, the firefighter’s face had been burnt beyond recognition.

He spent years being stared at, and even his own children were initially terrified of his disfigurement.

Operating simultaneously on Patrick and the donor (26-year-old David Rodebaugh, who waskilled in a cycling accident), doctors spen...

The Volunteer Group Hunting Down The Missing People Police Couldn’t Find

Uncategorized
It’s very hard to imagine – especially in a world of mobile phones and constant social media posts – just how someone can go missing forever. But people do vanish all the time, and in Britain alone, almost 275,000 people are reported missing every year. In fact, one person goes missing in the UK every two minutes.What’s even scarier is that police, driven by lack of evidence, are often forced to close cases down unresolved, meaning that thousands of people’s disappearances remain a mystery. Nicholas Hoult and Charlize Theron’s latest movie, ‘Dark Places’, focuses on a group of amateur investigators called ‘The Kill Club’ who, curious about cold cases, meet up to try and fill in the gaps that the police left behind.

In case you missed it, Bear Grylls has a TV show. Well, another one. And this time he’s sent a load of people to a deserted island to see if they can survive. They’re just about managing it. First, the TV show broke the British TV swearing record, because it was so sweary. And then people accused Bear of fixing it because just when the islanders were about to start dying from hunger, a fishing net mysteriously appeared and suddenly they had fish to eat. And now, in a more shocking turn of events, 19-year-old studentPatrick Dauncey lost his footing whileclimbingon the show, and fell 30ft onto rocks below. A small group of the islanders had gone off on a hunting exhibition that involved them clambering across some very dangerous and slippery rocks. Thankfullythey have doctor...

Miley Cyrus Posts Threat About Leaving The Country If Trump Becomes President

We all make threats about things. When your mum wouldn’t let you eat chicken dipper and potato smileys for dinner, you threatened to run away. Miley Cyrus is basically doing the same thing. Except it’s Trump, he’sthreatening to ruin things, so she’s saying she will leave the country if he gets into power. The difference is, she could actually do it because she’s an adult who is particularly wealthy. What she didn’t account for was that it might work the opposite way, in that people might vote for Trump in the hope that Cyrus leaves town. People are saying that’s what they’ll do, but they don’t mean it… right? Surely no one will vote for Trump? Wrong. Lots of people are. Tuesday was known as Super Tuesday in the US, with severa...

Mel B Just Pissed On Bear Grylls On TV

Filming his latest wildlife survival TV show – Running Wild – Bear Grylls was demonstrating how a jellyfish can be boiled up into a delicious, protein-rich stew. Unfortunately, the jellyfish in question didn’t take kindly to the idea of being made into a meal, and so stung Bear right on the hand. Now, if you’ve ever watched any type of survival show (Bear’s or otherwise), you’ll know that one of the best ways to remedy the pain caused by a jellyfish sting, is to put urine on it.

Twister Dance comes with five songs, including a "Till the World Ends" Twister remix from Britney Spears. A full music video of the remix premieres Sept. 9 at midnight on the game's website. The video features Spears, back-up dancers and Twister Dance (see below).

Illegal Hunter Mauled To Death By The Lion He Was Trying To Kill

Five menhave been attacked by the lion that they were hunting outside theKruger National Park in South Africa. While three managed to climb a tree, and another ran away, the fifth man was mauled to death, along with his two dogs. The men were hunting big game illegally, as none had licences, and While we don’t condone killing an endangered species for sport (the EOL classes the status of the lion species as ‘vulnerable’), describingthe death of a 24-year-old man as ‘poetic justice’ for the death of an animal, is perhaps a bit strong.

She eventually discovers that the town is abandoned due to a fire ragingbeneath – a fire caused by a cult burning an innocent child as “a witch”, thirty years previously. Now, the only inhabitants of the town are hellish monsters, and the same cult responsible for staring the fire, and for letting the evil in. And, a video game isn’t all that this film is based on.

Police Are Hunting For A Teacher Who Got Pregnant By Her 13-Year-Old Student

I don’t really feel like I should have to point this out, but one of the key rules of being a teacher is to make sure you don’t have any kind of intimate relationship with your students. You’d think it’d be a pretty easy rule to abide by, but judging by the news it sadly doesn’t seem to be… 24-year-old teacher Alexandria Vera is currently on the run from police, after admitting to a relationship she had with a 13-year-old student. The student, who she taught English at a school in Houston, Texas, had originally communicated with her via Instagram. After exchanging messages on social media, they then swapped numbers and agreed to meet up. After meeting up and kissing in her car, she drove to the boy’s house the following day and engaged in s...

The Reason This Isolated Tribe Are So Aggressive Towards Outside Contact

Uncategorized
Living in a world filled with modern technology, it can be difficult to imagine what life was like beforeit all came about. And we don’t just mean before the invention of iPads. Incredibly, there are still people who live in a ‘Stone Age’ society. Isolated, usually in thick jungle or on a remote island, these tribes are completely unaware that the world has modernised without them. Although scientists often try to study these‘uncontacted tribes’ – as a window into our own past – attempts to approach them canend in disaster. Take, for example, the Sentinelese people. They hadlived without any influence from the outside world for over 60,000 years, beforethey werediscovered by colonisers in 1879. Seeing them as dangerous, these invaders captured two...

Pokémon Go Players Come Across People Having Sex In Park – Carry On Playing

Uncategorized
For a while it seemed like Pokmon Go was here to stay. I was preparing to get married at a lucrative Pokstop to keep the guests happy in 60 years (if I’m lucky). Me and the wife were going to go on a walking trip for our honeymoon so we could hatch our eggs… I even learned how to type ‘’ quickly so I wouldn’t have to type ‘Pok’, then ctrl+v an acute e that I had copied later, then ‘mon’ because I had to write so many articles about it! But, from what I can tell from my very small friendship group, the hype is pretty much over and only Sam from videos and my sister are still consistently playing it. The only mileage we get from it now is when the few people who still bother to play it come across something untoward when they’re...

Expert Predicts That Man Will Be Hunted For Sport By The Super Rich In The Future

Uncategorized
Every now and then, when my friends and I are at the pub, conversation rolls on to what we’d arrange for each other’s stag-dos. It’s all pretty samey, really. Head over to Eastern Europe, maybe a bit of paint ball, boozy lunch, kill a man for sport, go clubbing or something. You know, normal stuff. But how logistically likely is that, really? Getting to Eastern Europe will be a tad more hassle if we leave the EU so that’s not great, paintball’s easy enough, boozy lunch is good too but you don’t want to overdo it if you’re going out clubbing too and then there’s killing men for sport – not currently legal. But as an expert has it, we may not be waiting that long (in the grand scheme of time) for that to become a viable, albeit too...

GoPro On Dog Captures The Terrifying Moment A Pack Of Wolves Attacked

Uncategorized
This has to be some of the most intense GoPro footage we have ever come across. Tommy Berglund was hunting moose with his dog Klara when she disappeared into the woods. Swedish hunting magazine, Svensk Jakt, report that when Klara returned she was bloody with bite marks all over her, and that it wasnt until reviewing the GoPro footage that he realised what had happened. The vet was only 20 minutes away and Klara made a full recovery within three days. She has been wearing a protective vest which basically saved her life. Heres the footage, some viewers may find this distressing. Read more: http://www.hellou.co.uk/2015/10/gopro-on-dog-captures-the-terrifying-moment-a-pack-of-wolves-attacked-65852/
9 Mainstream Superheroes That Turned Evil Before Captain America Did

9 Mainstream Superheroes That Turned Evil Before Captain America Did

Uncategorized
Captain America’s gone all Hydra on our collective arses and no one (bar a few Marvel executives) is all that happy about it. Hydra are basically Nazis and Captain America is like the epitome of not being a Nazi. But, although the world is in huge shock (still), it’s not the first time something like this has happened. Here’s a list of a few superheroes that turned evil to comfort you in that there may be hope for some ol’ Steve Rogers redemption… 1. Archangel Before the battle known as the“Mutant Massacre”, Angel had lovely feathery wings that even the most regal of doves would envy. Sadly for him, he got pinned to a wall by said wings which were, in turn, damaged beyond repair. In a sort of a bittersweet moment,Apocalypse came to his aid and...

This Is What Would Happen To The Earth If Humans Suddenly Disappeared

Uncategorized
In most post-apocalyptic scenarios, at least some humans survive. There’s a Rick Grimes, or a Mad Max or even a Neo (the one) around toensure the survival of our species. But what if no humans survived? What if we all suddenly – for whatever reason – just disappeared? What would happen then? Well, according to the folks over at Mind Warehouse, the Earth would get on pretty well without us… Pretty haunting, right?

“I Could Kill Some Crazy Stuff With A Bazooka”: Chloe Grace Moretz On How She’d Survive The Fifth Wave

Uncategorized
Since starring as the high-kick wielding, eleven-year-old Hit Girl in Kick-Ass, we always suspected we’d want Chloe Grace Moretz on our team if anything seriously bad was about to happen to the earth. In her new film, The 5th Wave, the words “seriously bad” are a bit of an understatement when it comes to the predicament of the world as we know it. In short, some pesky aliens appear and go all rouge landlord: kicking humans out as if they’ve been the worst tenants ever via five deadly waves of f*ck off. Chloe said it was actually a “harrowing film to make”: “We were so isolated in the woods most of the time. It was scary to have that amount of distance between you and civilization and to put yourself in the mindset of Cassie (her character)&hell...
