People Call Time On Google Earth ‘Mystery’

Everybody loves a good mystery. Curiosity about the unknown is human nature, and the spine-tingling sensation that can be found in things both weird and sensational gives a rush that rivals any other. With the strong reaction it can produce, it is no surprise that it is a favorite topic of clickbait merchants everywhere. 

Helped along by the overenthusiastic use of the warning sign emoji, Tiktoker Jason Cline is one avid producer of videos that showcase unexplained occurrences. His latest piece put the spotlight on a place in the Nevada desert. A thumbprint shape on Google Maps, when explored in Street View, appeared to show as some kind of ritual being performed by strange hooded beings.

Despite all the effort to give the zoom in heebie-jeebies, many viewers were not convinced. Some were more concerned about his distinctive filming set up, or had been convinced the whole thing was going to be a bait and switch. On top of that, it was soon pointed out that the scene was actually an easily discoverable art installation in a well-known ghost town called Rhyolite. 

This hasn't stopped the video from gaining traction, but it does impart an important lesson for mystery addicts everywhere. If you want to give the internet the shivers, find somewhere less googleable.

FOX's Malcolm In The Middle was popular for many reasons. Frankie Muniz as the hero. Jane Kaczmarek. Bryan Cranston's biggest role leading up Breaking Bad. And of course, the comedy. On the Internet, however, it's the show's opening credits that's had people talking for over 20 years. The collage of footage (set to They Might Be Giants) includes a ski jumper who is on fire - and people have been very serious about discovering its origin. And we're happy to report that YouTuber Kid Leaves Stoops did a thorough investigation and has shared their discoveries with us in this very detailed video.

New York City is definitely 'weird living situations' capital of the world, but this is next level. TikTokker @samanthartsoe felt a perplexing draft coming from her bathroom mirror and decided to investigate while documenting the exploration in a series of TikTok videos. What she found was pretty insane—a huge hold in the wall that her mirror had been concealing for who knows how long. And behind the wall? An entire apartment. At the end of the video, @samanthartsoe says she'll be giving her landlord a call and hopefully she'll update us in another TikTok video, because we'd really like to hear their explanation for this one.

3D Tour Of Cursed Louisville Home Is Twitter's New Favorite Horror Game

In Louisville, Kentucky there is a seemingly innocuous house on 8800 Blue Lick Road that went unnoticed for years until the seller of the property posted a listing for it a couple months back. The listing included a virtual 3D tour that revealed the property's strange and somewhat disturbing contents. Many dependable internet detectives investigated the tour and found two 'his and hers' toilets right next to each other, a creepy red exit sign in the kitchen, oddly placed portraits of twin brothers, hundreds of 'Girls Gone Wild' DVDs, and of course the infamous bathtub room, just to name a few. People who have completed the tour (or tried to) are losing their shit about it online. We've watched the speedruns (yes, speedruns) and we are shook.

This Land Mine Internet Mystery Is One Of The Greatest Trolls We've Ever Seen

Dating back to December 31, 2015 Redditor KnightofSunlight posted a mysterious photo to r/WhatsThisThing---the forum that asks the internet help for identifying unknown objects. Fast forward a bit and the thread determined that the photo this dude uploaded was actually a land mine, and that he'd been inactive for a long time; and that's when the sh*t really hit the fan.

It may not be Kim Kardashian’s butt or a couple of runaway llamas, but a single dress seemingly broken the Internet Thursday night.

The image above was originally uploaded on February 15 to Tumblr with the following caption:

Guys please help me – is this dress white and gold, or blue and black? Me and my friends can’t agree and we are freaking the f**k out.

Simple enough question right? It’s obviously blue and gold. Mystery solved.

But wait, when you turn the photo sideways it’s actually more blue and black. The more you really think about it, maybe it’s white and gold after all.

Then your mind explodes, and the evil dress has won.

One commenter thought we needed to elevate this to a higher authority.

SPREAD THIS UNTIL IT REACHES NASA WE MUST FIND ANSWERS

The dress was trending on Twitter and Facebook by Friday morning, with people of both camps (#whiteandgold and #blackandblue) arguing their case.

Buzzfeed eventually contacted the original uploader, a woman named Caitlin McNeill. She confirmed that it was in fact the blue and black dress seen below.

It’s called the Royal-Blue Lace Detail Bodycon Dress and sells for $77.

Although the more interesting question is, why do we all see different colors?

Wired has a good explanation of why this is happening.

Human beings evolved to see in daylight, but daylight changes color. That chromatic axis varies from the pinkish red of dawn, up through the blue-white of noontime, and then back down to reddish twilight. “What’s happening here is your visual system is looking at this thing, and you’re trying to discount the chromatic bias of the daylight axis,” says Bevil Conway, a neuroscientist who studies color and vision at Wellesley College. “So people either discount the blue side, in which case they end up seeing white and gold, or discount the gold side, in which case they end up with blue and black.”
