There are a couple of different origins as to where they came from which we will explore today.

This underwater photo, taken in 1972 during the Rines expedition which was held in Loch Ness. It Seems to show a plesiosaur-like creature. 

 

Could this be the Loch Ness Monster?

▶ Do Giant Cookiecutter Sharks Exist?

There are two known species of cookiecutter sharks: the cookiecutter shark (Isistius brasiliensis) and the largetooth cookiecutter shark (Isistius plutodus). Both are about the same size—reaching lengths of around 50 cm—and both belong to a family of deep water squaloid (Squaliformes—the dogfish sharks) sharks: Dalatiidae (the sleeper sharks belong to this family as well). The two Isistius species are epi- to mesopelagic creatures; it is thought that during the day they remain in the mesopelagic zone (from 200 m to 1000 m below sea level) and then at night they venture nearer to the surface. This behaviour is known as diel (influenced by day-night changes) vertical migration, and many other mesopelagic creatures, from fishes to shrimps, perform this behaviour.

Cattle mutilation

fuckyeahnightmares:

Cattle mutilation (also known as bovine excision) is the apparent killing and mutilation of cattle under unusual or anomalous circumstances. Sheep and horses have allegedly been mutilated under similar circumstances.

A hallmark of these incidents is the surgical nature of the mutilation, and…

It’s not much of a scare but a friend and I used to play around with the Ouija board when we were younger. We thought it was cool to do something like that because it was forbidden. For weeks we would play with it and talk to the spirits who were around. They’d give advice, tell us how they died, or just spell out random words. I really don’t remember all the details of it now. Not that it mattered.

Oh great, the one time I choose to view this blog while home alone, and I just felt something brush against my cheek, like someone’s hand caressing it, and saw a shadow on the wall in my hallway mirror. My apartment is very old compared to most in my town, about 30 years, and I’ve always felt iffy about one of the rooms. I live here with my boyfriend and another friend, there are three rooms total so one is unused. I keep it closed because it just feels… wrong. And the shadow that passed my mirror was headed to that goddamn room. FYI, I’m absolutely terrified right now.

Not really a scary story, but my mom used to see her grandfather for years after he passed. One day, she was leaving her room, opened the door, and he was there. She screamed, mostly because she wasn’t expecting anyone to be there and said, “Don’t DO that!” and he looked sad and faded away. She said, “No no! Just announce a little better!” He showed up again, but thought it was an interesting story you’d like. :)

I’ve always believed in the paranormal—but i’ve never had much of a profound experience—however—i have had small occurrences happen to me that keep be from becoming a skeptic (i am a very practical person), my first experience was when i was around 15 or 16 at a family friends house when i was watching TV, nothing scary at all, in fact it was a cute pet show on animal planet, but i happened to look up at an angel statue sitting on the entertainment system where a blue orb sort of ‘faded’ into existence and hovered around the figure for at least five minutes before it dissapeared from view, i really wasn’t frightened by it, i was very calm, and i made sure to look for anything that could be reflecting this odd, perfectly round, blue orb, the blinds were closed on the tv and no one seemed to see it but me though there were two adults in the room at the same time—i always think back to this and wondered what this weird phenomenon could possibly be.

▶ not really scary but a bit creepy and weird

 submitted:

i know someone and once, when she was around 11, she got really ill more than she had been ill in her life before, she’d caught some bug or flu or something but it was quite serious. she went to sleep and had a dream about a ball of newspaper and a lake of orange paint. after that she woke up, but she was hallucinating  - her eyes were open and she was walking around but she could not see her surroundings as what they actually were. she sat herself down and saw that she was in a lifeboat and she was dragging people out of the sea, whilst watching dead bodies float by, people all around her were screaming and crying. in reality, her parents said she was sat down grabbing the air thinking there were people there, but she was extremely distressed and scared, crying her eyes out and screaming. eventually she got better and it stopped. she didn’t get that ill again until she was about 14, she went to sleep and had the same weird dream about the orange paint again for the first time since. and then she started hallucinating again. her room was shaking and tilting and rocks from a massive iceberg crashed through her window, she was seeing these things so vividly, her parents found her screaming again. she had never seen titanic, but i suggested these were maybe some form of repressed memories. we looked on the internet for titanic survivors and discovered that one, a girl who escaped off the boat and had helped drag people out of the sea into lifeboats, was 13/14, the same age my friendwas when she had these hallucinations, had died almost exactly 9 months before she was born…

When I was about 7 or 8 my best friend and I had a sleepover at her house. She had a clown doll that we really hated that was standing downstairs in the livingroom. We ate lots of candy and then went to bed. After a while I woke up, terrified, because I was having a nightmare about the clown, chasing us up the stairs, to the bedroom we where sleeping in. I looked at my friend to find her staring at me, pretty shocked. We opened the bedroom door, without saying a word, and we found the doll sitting in front of her room.

Fuck Yeah Nightmares Mod Fey: oooh heeelll no. Dolls are considered ‘empty vessels’ and are considered very easy to possess. I hope that she was able to get rid of it (they’re also notorious for returning to their owners!) 9/10 for scares and thanks for sharing!
