11 Of The Weirdest Things On The Internet

Welcome to the internet-- I'll be your guide.

11 Of The Weirdest Things On The Internet
Reddit: "Smart Things Blog"

As most of you know, the internet is full of some really bizarre stuff. There are pictures of cats with their face stuck in bread, some strange Tumblr posts, Slenderman, a woman with a wookie mask laughing at herself and the moderately offensive flying spaghetti monster. You may think you've seen it all. I'm here to tell you something: you haven't. Not even close.

Today, I'm going to take you on a tour of some of the weirdest parts of the internet...

(Click on any of the hyperlinked blue text to view.)

1) Don't Hug Me I'm Scared

This video begins as what seems to be a fun children's song with goofy characters. Oh, how wrong you are to assume that. It starts to get creepy at about 1:30, and just gets more scarring as it progresses. There's just something blatantly eerie about these videos. What do I mean "these?" There are actually 6 "Don't Hug Me I'm Scared" videos currently on the internet.

2) Tight Pants/Body Rolls

This is easily the most obnoxious, most catchy video I have ever seen. I first saw it in an art club meeting when we were just hanging out watching strange videos. Leave it to art kids to find stuff like this.

3) Shoes (Caution: Profanity)

This video is actually 10 years old. I remember watching it when I was younger, as I'm sure some of you do as well. I feel like you have to be the right kind of sleepy to find this funny (as in, that special moment of sleep deprivation where everything on the internet suddenly becomes the funniest thing you've ever seen).

4) Salad Fingers (Warning: this video is hardcore creepy)

This series truly exemplifies the strangest of the strange on the internet. Some of my closest friends showed me this particular episode this past year, and I was thoroughly disturbed after even just the intro music. I can't even put into words how creepy this video is. Enjoy.

5) Little Baby's Ice Cream

This is an actual ice cream company's actual advertisement. I'm not making this up. If you ask me, this video is both effective and ineffective in the sense that it's super gross looking (and therefore does not seem appealing), but it's insanely memorable because the image is forever burned into your mind. I eat Little Babies...ice cream.

6) OMG Laser Guns

The internet not only has bizarre videos, but also bizarre websites. Check out this random one of a squirrel with a laser gun. Pew pew pew.

7) Texter

There just something oddly amusing about this website. It has words from "Alice in Wonderland" that you can essentially just doodle with if you're feeling creative. This one isn't the craziest thing on the internet, but I found it rather quirky and figured I'd share.

8) I Love You Like a Fat Lady Loves Apples

This is a simple game/website with a large, older looking woman sitting at a table eating apples. There's creepy music in the background, and if your apple is out of reach, a leg with fishnet stockings kicks it back out so you can reach it. Keep eating apples and the woman will grow larger. Eventually, something else happens to her, but I won't spoil the surprise. You won't expect it.

9) Eel Slap

This is an interactive website where you slap a man with an eel. That isn't some gross euphemism or anything. It's completely literal. If you'd like, however, you can gently caress his face with the eel. It's up to you.

10) Prime Number ******** Bear (Caution: Profanity)

If only I knew about this back in the day when I was learning prime numbers. The internet: making learning fun. For full effect, turn up your volume.

11) Staggering Beauty (Caution: flashing lights)

I love this website. I don't know why. I just do. Move your cursor over the little worm guy to make him move. Then try wiggling the cursor super fast-- you won't regret it.

I've only just scraped the surface of the "hidden gems" of the internet, but I hope this has been an interesting learning experience for you.

Human creativity never fails to surprise me.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

11 Reasons Why Getting A Cat Is The Best Thing You Can Do For Your Mental Health

Cats may mess up your puzzles but they'll always love you unconditionally — as long as you have some catnip, that is.

Scout Guarino

Alright, everyone, it's time to stop spreading the rumor that all cats are mean, aloof, and hate everyone. Like dogs, each cat has its own personality and tendencies. Some like a lot of attention, some like less — each person has to find the right cat for them. As for me, my cats Bienfu and Reptar have seen me at my worst, but they've also helped pull me out of it. They're a constant in my life and they give me the strength to get through the day in spite of my depression, and there's even scientific evidence to support it!

I never considered myself a cat person, but Chess immediately stole my heart.

Madelyn Darbonne

In 2016, a stray cat gave birth to a litter of three grey kittens on my aunt and uncle's property. I had never considered myself to be much of a cat person, but these furballs immediately stole my heart. I got to watch them grow up until they were old enough to leave their mother's side.

I Saw My Ex With The Next Girl, And Because I Care About Him, I'm Not Jealous Of Her, I'm Happy For Him

I always thought if I truly cared about someone, seeing them happy with someone else would make me jealous.

We have all been there. Mindlessly scrolling through social media and then we see that post. We see someone we once saw a future with creating it with someone else. However this time it was really different. A lot of times when we say we are happy for someone we don't really mean it.

Some people are so good at downplaying their sadness that even they don't realize how much they do it. When you ask them how they are they will always say that they are good, even when they aren't. They exhaust themselves by plastering an energetic and carefree persona in the spaces that you watch them in because at least to you they can control how they appear. They can pretend to be the happy person they want to be when everyone is telling them how funny and bubbly they are all the time.
