There are far more creepy stories out there than I ever would have believed. Ghosts, humans, demons, robots – the list really goes on and on.
Even if you think you’ve seen everything there is to see, and maybe think you can come up with an explanation for most, if not all, of those things, these posts might make you think again.
1. That will scar you for life.
used to download movies using one of those illegal apps. I was a teenager, about 16? Perverts LOVED to title hardcore, illegal po*n Disney titles. You never knew what you were going to get. Sometimes you’d get disney movies, sometimes you’d get edits with Disney intros and title cards, then it would cut into po*n.
I’ll never forget the time I downloaded Goofy Movie and it was… a horse. And a woman. It was awful. I remember I cried and deleted it immediately. I didnt tell anyone (you wouldn’t download a car) and for months I expected the FBI to show up and arrest me.
2. Just a tip from a “friend.”
Long ago I was working laptop tech support and I specialized in wireless issues. This was the early days of 802.11b.
Some guy calls in saying he needs help to setup wireless security. WEP was a s**t-show, so we didn’t fully cover it, we just did best effort support. I asked the guy why he wanted wireless security.
He explains, “When I came home there was a document printed out on my printer saying I really needed to setup wireless security.”
So yeah, we got him setup with WEP, heh.
3. Let’s hope that’s all it was.
When I was a kid (10-11yo) and I was taking my first baby steps looking for p*rn, I found a p*rn website with bunch of women who were all missing their arms and legs.
It was somewhat jarring that there were so many and I started wondering what had happened to them and if whoever was filming the stuff had taken their limbs.
Haha, kids be kids (… Unless?) It was probably an amputation fetish website or something.
4. Some Amazon employee has a dark sense of humor.
A few days after we got an Alexa my wife and I were playing around by asking it random questions to see what she’d say.
We asked her “to tell us a story”.
Without missing a beat she said “there is a disfigured child in the basement calling for help”.
5. That’s what happens when you invite robots into your room.
One night I was listening to music on my Alexa and playing Minecraft then I turned off Minecraft and then my Alexa and set off to sleep then a few minutes later my Alexa glows a red light and plays a very loud static noise it scared the s**t out of me
6. Alexa freaks me out.
Ask alexa “who is listening to me right now”. It gives a range of really weird responses including one really long monologue about “The listeners” and why they listen.
You can also ask why alexa is recording you. It will sometimes give long monologues about the greater good and a need for monitoring. Other times it just responds that its not recording.
these are just some of the prerecorded answer options alexa has. If on the first try you don’t get it as an answer you will eventually if you keep asking. If you want to hear the listeners answer off the bat ask Alexa “Who are the listeners” I just tried it with my alexa and she gives the monologue upon first question.
7. I don’t like this.
Unfortunately I was on the receiving end of those body dysmorphia type of tumblr posts at a sensitive time of my life, and fell into that rabbit hole for a year or so. Looking back on it, those posts were a lot more f*cked up than I realized.
The romanticization of anorexia is jarring to say the least, especially to anyone who was impressionable towards that stuff. Real f**ked up s**t. Worst part was just how healthy most posts were made to look, not healthy in a weight sense of course, but they were almost most definitely photoshopped to make it seem like anorexia brought flush, flawless skin, beautiful hair, and an overall healthy demeanor.
In reality, none of that is possible nor comes from that, it was just so romanticized and almost s**ualized, showing as much skin as possible and making it look like it was beautiful or something.
It was disgusting, and I can’t imagine the amount of people who fell into that hole worse than I did and I hope they are healthy now.
8. The government came for them.
There was a sub about methods of switching universes in the multiverse. The sub had a number in the sidebar and people would swear that they successfully switched universes because the number was different or a partner has a scar they didn’t before, stuff like that.
Anyway it just stopped, no word as to why, no nothing. Everyone just stopped posting and commenting all of a sudden.
Sadly I can not for the life of me remember the name of the sub.
9. That’s a bad time to freeze.
When I was around 13, I randomly came across a video on Facebook (shared by a FB friend) of a woman being decapitated. It was two men and the woman plus someone holding a camera.
They explained that she wronged their gang in some way (I don’t remember those details) and one man proceeded. I couldn’t click away I was so frozen in shock. I saw the whole thing. Her image is burned into my brain for life.
When I see similar graphic scenes in movies or shows like GOT I always picture her. May she R.I.P.
10. I’m off to tape up my webcam.
As a teenager looking for p*rn I stumbled across a website which looked like one of those live cam sites, but then I noticed most of the people weren’t engaging with the audience, and they were all kinds of people. Old people, kids, people of all different ages, ethnicities and whatnot.
I clicked on a random livestream of some oblivious teenager doing her homework and the people in the comments were saying stuff that made me realize she didn’t know she was being livestreamed, nor did anyone else on the site.
It seemed to be some weird website of hacked webcams or security cameras where the people had no idea about it. It was creepy as f**k and I’ve never kept my webcam pointed at me when not in use since.
My girlfriend at the time texted me a link to a local news article involving a trial taking place that day.
At the top of the article was a picture of my girlfriend sitting in the courtroom. I was surprised since she hadn’t mentioned going to court. She definitely would have told me, and then in anticipation of it, asked me a bunch of questions, as I am in the legal field.
She responded, “that’s not me.”
We never did find out who it was.
The woman who looked like my girlfriend was not the only person in the photo. She was not even the primary subject of the photo. She was sitting in the gallery with a number of other people.
12. I would not be ok.
My niece was having trouble sleeping and kept telling her parents that she was hearing voices but she’s an inarticulate toddler so they didn’t totally understand.
Eventually they figured out her baby monitor was hacked and people were talking to her through it.
Makes my f**king skin crawl.
13. I hope it wasn’t the mob.
this happened last month, i was watching random stuff on youtube when suddenly i started listening 2 guys talking with a calm music in the background, one of the guys had a strong russian accent, they seemed to be playing something,.
I thought it was some YouTube video i opened but it wasn’t, i started to close everything until there everything was closed, there was only steam opened but i wasn’t in any voice-chat or anything and no media was playing (like stream or anything like that), it seemed to be some private call i got in.
So i closed steam and the 2 guys talking stopped, so i guess somehow i got into a random steam private voice call.
14. I guess that’s a thing that happened.
Years ago in a similar post on Reddit someone shared a website of this mentally ill, homeless woman, formerly an engineer or dev, who lived in a tent in the woods that she had hidden. She had access to electricity and the internet. She had her own website and I believe even posted on Reddit.
On her website she’d write about her s^x life and all the crazy sh%t she’d done. I think the worst was when she willingly became the s** slave of some man, at some point he tied her up in his basement, and that man would invite his friends to come over to r*pe her. Eventually word gets around town and all sorts of men show up, even some teenage boys.
One thing I distinctly remember is she h**ed having her partners speak during s^x. She posted a satellite photo of where her tent was and said if anyone could find her tent, they were welcome to come inside and f*ck her but they couldn’t say anything to her while they did it.
Crazy stuff – anyone remember this?
15. Depends on your definition of lucky.
I remember back in the day you could type in “Meet Chad” or something like that in the google search bar and then hit the ‘I’m feeling lucky’ button.
It would immediately bring up a page with a dude covered in poop.
16. I would have lost my mind.
I didn’t come across it, but once when I was around 15 someone hacked into my computer. This is 100% true and i tell it as a cautionary tale often. I had a ftp file server at the time because I was in a long distance relationship and we would send stuff to each other via the file server. One day I noticed someone had downloaded all of my photos from the server. I called my boyfriend and asked him why he was downloading stuff he already had. He swore it wasn’t him.
I ignored it until several days later a screen opened on my desk top that was a window for my webcam and was on with me on the screen, and a chat window opened. The person told me that if I didn’t take all my clothes off they would use my mom and dads credit cards to buy all sorts of things. Luckily my parents were super cautious of using their credit cards on the internet (this was like 2002) so I knew he didn’t have their card #’s. He had used the ftp server to upload this chat/video program, and who knows how long they had been watching me.
I freaked out. I unplugged my computer and unplugged it from the internet and didn’t turn it back on until I was prepared with fancy firewalls and security for the ftp server. I tried calling to police and my internet provider but no one could help me. And thats how I learned hundreds of ip addresses and what they were, I watched my firewall like a hawk. I never heard from the hacker again, but it sure scared the s**t out of me. Now I cover my webcams.
17. The definition of creepy.
So I decided to just type in something like mmmmmmmmmmmmm.com or something like it. Coca Cola used to (or still does) own a url like that. But just the same letter maybe 13-15 times. It came to a choppy video of a movie called South 32. It was cryptic and edited to just say “South 32” over and over again, for 4 hours.
So I tried a different letter. Same thing. And another letter. Same thing. The same website popped up for maybe 20 different urls in that type of sequence.
I tried submitting it to the internet mysteries subreddit but it didn’t gain any traction and I don’t believe it works anymore. This must’ve been 4 years ago now.
18. WTF cereal?!
When I was a kid, I had some cereal that had a website to visit to enter to win some prize or something.
When I entered that site into my computer, it didn’t take me to some kid friendly site or anything, it took me to a blank white page with just the text:
“We have been watching you.”
I was 12, alone in my room, casually browsing youtube on my old laptop when suddenly a jump scare opens on a completely different tab on chrome. I still remember my webcam’s light blinking.
I was so terrified that i wasn’t able to use my laptop alone for a good 6-7 months lol
20. Lesson learned.
This happened when I used to play Minecraft a lot back in like 2013-2014. I was with a friend on Skype and was trying to find other people to join to play a game in the lobby and I asked this one guy if he wanted to join. He gives me his Skype and my friend and I add him, then he starts inviting us to a video call and only one of us could join.
My friend joined and started screen sharing and this guy, who was probably like 12 or 13, was laying on his bed naked and had tied his legs and an arm to the bed posts and started ja*king off.
After that, I stopped inviting random people to Skype.
21. I’m sorry, what?
Humanbeef.com. Not around anymore.
I tried to find it on the way-back machine — to no avail. It was super creepy though…
ostensibly, a place to purchase meat — human meat. They had testimonials and photos / artistic renderings of processing employees wearing masks and of the final product. It’s been over twenty years (1998-ish) since I saw it, so my memory is a little faded… but I’m pretty sure the URL was humanbeef.com. I remember the color scheme being white and turquoise.
Anybody else remember it?
22. I would not like that.
Someone somehow guessed my name correctly in a 4chan thread.
I didn’t even give any clue to who I was.
Still don’t know who or how they did it.
23. Hubba Bubbles.
In the post above this one i just read a 2 paragraph comment about how to properly seduce a female dolphin.
24. This one did, anyway.
I was once reading a tongue-in-cheek article about paranoia, and it included a sentence like “they are watching everyone – even you, dryu_nya”.
The very next sentence said that they picked a name at random, but all the dryu_nyas out there must’ve shat so many bricks.
25. All that data mining.
I changed the email address attached to my Amazon account.
A year later I forgot and tried to sign into my account with old email address.
The same password worked but it was someone else’s account (name and address was different) and the guy hadn’t bought anything.
Why did he use my old email (it was unique to me and didn’t match his name) and how did the password end up the same as mine?
26. Why YouTube isn’t for kids.
Was casually surfing when I stumbled upon a video of a guy doing shotgun loading tutorials or something, the video was cut half and he was speaking another language and the gun accidentally went off and he blew his head clean off.
I don’t remember the website name or anything, I was just surfing funny videos to pass the time when I saw this. The amount of blood that went flying everywhere was horrible. I was just 11 when I saw this so it practically scarred me bad. It still chills me when I think about it.
27. How could you be?
I modded Discord servers for a while. Users send you all sorts of shock stuff when you ban them, typically just stuff like gay porn that doesn’t make me blink twice.
One guy sent me a home video of someone being beheaded. Wasn’t ready for that
28. This is the worst thing I’ve read in a while.
A lady on gaiaonline got mad at me in chatterbox. So she went on my profile and spammed it with gifs of someone beating a dog to d**th with a shovel.
I remember seeing the first one and crying a lot because at the time I was like 11 or 12. She sent like 10 before I got her blocked and later banned. I had to manually delete each comment from my public profile.
Each gif was from a different point in the same video. It was really sad and I didn’t go back onto my pc for a long time.
29. Some people just like to scare kids?
I’m not sure if this has been explained, but I remember discovering a youtube channel which went by the name of “Robert Helpmann.”
The channel has various videos of a bodybag (seemingly with something inside of it) which is referred to as ‘Daisy.’ I came across this when I was young, and it terrified me
30. A glitch in the matrix.
This isn’t the internet but more on a call. I was on a call with my girlfriend who was in Germany at that time (early 2019) when suddenly she seemed to be repeating what she was saying from a while back. I got confused and was trying to ask her why she was repeating herself before I realized that her voice was being looped back. I didn’t realize the loop point or how far back it was but she was clearly saying the same lines as she did before. When I hung up and called her back, she asked me why I hung up on her and didn’t call me back.
Then during the second call, it happened again after 3 minutes! I’ve never been able to explain why this happened and has never occurred again before or since. Definitely gave me the creeps and more than a few thoughts that I was living in a simulation.
31. They never think they’re insane.
I read Kyle Odom’s manifesto on here. Basically he was this mentally ill ex marine who was convinced he was being telepathically manipulated by aliens. He believed their main hideout was in this church and he had to k**l the leader to make it stop.
He ended up firing an entire clip of hollow point bullets into the back of the preacher of that church. The preacher made a full recovery which was deemed a miracle and Kyle Odom was arrested throwing his manifesto across the White House fence.
This is all a true story if you look him up.
32. That could have been super awkward.
I rang my Mum on WhatsApp to do a Video call , when she answered it was a man with his shirt off , middle aged (50’s) with glasses on sitting on a couch , it sort of looked like a hotel room . He had a foreign accent and said “Yes ? Hello? Who is this?”.
I hung up immediately and rang my Mum again and she picked up and she was on camera walking around near a pond . It was absolutely bizarre and has never happened again .
33. Can ghosts use the internet?
i was in a private call with a friend on discord and then suddenly we heard someone saying like “hello?! anyone can hear me? ” we both surprised and i’m 1000% sure there was only the two of us.
34. Never fall for the puppies.
Naive me got into kids chat, randomly got messaged by a guy asking if I want free toys. Childish me accepted, then guy led me to a 4 GB folder full of random dog photos.
Scrolling down a bit further there’s a few zip files, some photos were over saturated than the rest, others I can’t even make out.
Sh%t reminds me of some ol creepypasta and noped out.
Y’all, I don’t know what to think after reading those!
