Published 5 years ago

Imagine a situation: you’re going to the bathroom in the middle of the night and notice someone standing outside your window. You freeze in panic and your mind begins racing: should I run to my phone and call the police? Scream? Or maybe look for a weapon? Then suddenly you feel relieved when you notice that the “person” outside is just a shadow of a tree. If you’ve ever found yourself in a similar situation, don’t worry – you’re not alone.

People are sharing the times they were terrified by innocent things and it’s absolutely hilarious. Weird reflections, spooky shadows, unfortunately placed gloves, and smoothie accidents – check out all the ordinary things that nearly gave people heart attacks in the gallery below!

I was so freaked out, I barely slept. I even tried creeping in there with a flashlight while my son was sleeping. Well, this morning I go to investigate a bit further. It turns out my husband just forgot to put the mattress protector on when he changed the sheets. I could kill him.

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
