There are 15 People on the Planet Right Now Who Seriously Think They’re God.

Entertainment
This is apparently such a common occurrence that there's an entire section to it devoted to it on Wikipedia. It seems that the life of the average person is not enough for some, and so these folks decided to get really ambitious and aim for godhood. It kind of worked out for some of them--as L. Ron can tell you, there's a lot of money in organized religion--and they've gained a following. Others, well, not so much, unless you count notoriety and criminal activity as success. (Which perhaps it is.) Either way, these 15 living people are currently claiming that they are, in one form or another, a living version of Jesus or God. All of them take a Christian(ish) bent on things, and note that while not necessary, beards are big among the self-deifying crowd.  And no, Kanye&nb...

War tears families apart. It is a violent, awful thing that has plagued civilizations since they were formed. Many of us are aware of this fact, but it's difficult to wrap your mind around just how dreadful it is without first-hand experience. It was, at least, until now. In just a few simple photographs, you'll realize the cold grief and terror that families feel during wartime. These seven soldiers, seven children, were killed while they served our country. Now, all that is left behind is their families' memories of them and their bedrooms at home. This is heartbreaking. Marine Cpl. Christopher G.

They Caught This Creature Climbing Buildings In Russia…But What Is It?

If there's going to be a bizarre, otherworldly-looking creature spotted scaling the side of a building, why wouldn't it be in Russia? After all, Russia does tend to attract more than its fair share of paranormal activity. But just because it could happen doesn't mean that it actually will.The video below started circulating back in 2013. It reportedly shows a monster climbing an apartment building somewhere in Russia, and the worst part is that it kind of looks like Slender Man. Although it's freaky, there's an overwhelming amount of evidence that points to it being fake. (source: GloverX )First of all, what would a monster get out of climbing the side of an apartment complex? That feels like a major plot hole to me. That being said, I'll still be drawing the blinds tonight. Re...

We're often oblivious to the abundant creativity around us. That's why, when someone comes around and highlights them, we often celebrate them as true "artists." Those people see what we take for granted.  Recently, a Twitter account started to collect the greatest collection of "faces" in everyday items. They might not be the same art you're ready to tout as the next best thing, but this guy talented at seeing the true world around us. 1.) "You wouldn't like me when I'm angry." 2.) Ahhhhhhhh..... 3.)

Caracas is the largest city in Venezuela, and it is also the capital. This capital city is reported have the highest per capita murder rate in the world (as a country, Venezuela also has the highest murder rate per capita). Murders, violent crimes and lesser crimes all go unsolved. That's because most of this city's population lives in poor slums. There are neighborhoods covering nearly every corner of the city, filled with poverty and squalor. No one there cares to stop the crime, nor do they have the power to. In the middle of Caracas stands a tall building, one of the largest slums in the world and a monument to the life that most people live there. 70% of the city's population lives in slums.

In Skopje, Macedonia at Goce Delchev University, students are forced to live in conditions that would be unsuitable for even prison inmates. The buildings are covered in mold and filth. They are falling apart, but if the students want to receive an education they must go here. Goce Delchev University is even considered the second best state school in the country, but the conditions at the Skopje dorms are so bad, the education doesn't even seem worth it. This large dormitory houses 1,200+ students every year. It is the biggest student dormitory in the country. Imgur The conditions inside are sub-human. Leaking pipes are a common occurrence everywhere. Imgur "...

Imagine coming across this large, abandoned building while out on a walk. It's in the middle of the countryside and the doors are locked. Curious, you step up to the window to peek inside. It seems to be full of something, although it's hard to see exactly what. (My own curiosity would kill me.) intuh A photographer stumbled across this building and felt exactly that. Luckily, he was able to peek inside and discover what was waiting for him. The storage barn (located somewhere in Portugal) is actually packed to the brim with old, classic cars. The pictures originally surfaced back in early 2007, and took on a life of their own. The story behind the barn is that it belongs to a former classic car dealer from the 70's...

Recently, three strange books were discovered hidden within Harvard's enormous library. The tomes covered the topics of Roman poetry, French philosophy  and a treatise on medieval Spanish law. But that wasn't the weird part. The weird part is that the books give off a distinctly creepy vibe. They're covered in thin, crackling leather. It's a shiny material that looks familiar and strange at the same time. When researchers discovered what material the books were bound in, they probably had to sleep with the lights on for a few nights. The strange, leathery covers of the books already had an air of creepiness to them. Road Trippers But it wasn't until they were more closely inspected that researchers real...

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DTBT_ATF'); }); If you've ever had a panic attack in your life, you know that they are absolutely awful. While a panic attack on dry land is bad enough, imagine having one while you're scuba diving 50 feet underwater. If you think that sounds harrowing, seeing it happen will make your whole body tense up. The following video was recorded by a scuba instructor in South Africa last summer. He was out with a group when one student panicked. She spit out her regulator and took off her mask. Unable to calm her, the instructor initiated an emergency ascent. This girl is lucky to be alive. (via Reddit)After watching that, I feel like I'm seriously on the verge of having a panic attack myself....
