scary stories on the internet

What is it about the internet and scary stories?

There’s something about the internet that makes us just want to believe.

A news story. A viral video. A good Samaritan story. We just want to believe.

What is our obsession with time, why do we constantly crave more time and to know what time it is and why do we, more scarily, want to know how much time we have left?

We also want to believe the negative and are obsessed with what the media feed us. Stories of daily death tolls, massacres, suicide and the next threat to your very own existence.

We just want to believe.

And scary stories on the internet feed right into our need for that.

Have a read of the scary stories, surely, they can’t all be true? What about that one you read that has absolutely no chance of being true? Maybe it is?

Insomnia? The NoSleep subreddit

Sometimes we just can’t sleep and our mind starts wondering and suddenly we hear a noise…

It’s time like this where reality and fantasy distort and we can sometimes find it hard to separate, especially as our imagination runs wild.

Let your mind go and get lost in the NoSleep subreddit – maybe you will drift off to pleasant dreams or maybe you will be far too afraid to close your eyes for the rest of the night?

Whatever you do and what ever the outcome, don’t let the bed bugs bite, it’s just your imagination running wild, or maybe it isn’t?

live time real world births and deaths

Ever wondered what happens after you die?

As horrible and scary as it may be to believe… but the world keeps on ticking.

Nothing shows the importance of time and say’s “life goes on” as this live world births and deaths clock.

Turning births and deaths into statistics is quite a numbing thing to do, but when you see death after death appearing and the sheer volume of deaths you see within just a very short time period and think about the devastation and impact behind each and individual death it shows just how big and scary the world really is and how scarily enough… life does really go on as evidenced by the beautiful new births and joy others are feeling at the same time as someone’s life ending.

The internet can be a scary place, these are the fun scary places you can end up and whilst there are many more sites that didn’t make the list as they are just too dark and unacceptable, the above will give you a healthy fright.

Have fun, stay safe and have a great Halloween and remember… “Be afraid. Be very afraid.”
