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.

Gay Men Expose Things They Do Not Understand At All About Straight Guys

As a woman, there are a lot of things I don't understand about straight men. But I suppose that is to be expected considering I have never existed on this earth as a man. What is funny, however, is that gay men apparently are also confused by the things that straight men say and do. This is probably because society has placed a lot more weight on one's sexual preference than is really necessary. Gay men, in terms of self-expression, have a lot more freedom. While straight men have very rigid expectations. A straight man is expected to be attracted to women, but that's not enough. He needs to be super manly, and love trucks and war, but also hate his wife? There seems to be a lot to unpack here.

Let's start with this Reddit thread.

People Expose The Sexist Assumptions Google Translate Makes

Many languages are gendered, so it's very difficult to be neutral when it comes to translating from English. The default is often male and this can lead to a lot of confusion, and assumptions when learning a new language. However, what people are discovering is that even with languages that are 'un-gendered,' like Finnish, Philipino, and Hungarian, Google Translate will still make certain assumptions about the pronouns.

Many people are very frustrated with how their language is appearing, and how sexist it appears on Google Translate and they're showing off the inconsistencies on Twitter.

That's mad sexist @Google Ő egy mérnök. Ő gyönyörű. She is an engineer. He is beautiful. Ő egy mérnök. Ő gyönyörű. He is an engineer. She is beautiful. Bekreftet

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.

A Hole Has Appeared In the Center of Antarctica And Scientists Are Rushing to Understand Why

Antarctica is one of the world's most mysterious continents. Covered in 98% ice, and the last in the world to be discovered and explored, this place is the most uninhabitable on earth, and is covered in ice that in places is almost 2km thick. First discovered in 1820 by Russian explorer Fabian Gottlieb von Bellingshausen and Mikhail Lazarev, it would take until 1895 that the ice continent would be explored properly. The continent is also wrought with controversy, with multiple countries staking claims to different parts of it, with some of them overlapping. 

But as the world has started to shift and the environment with it, scientists have started to witness hitherto unseen changes that had only been recorded historically in our findings in the ice. But a hole that was discovered in the center of the continent has got scientists abuzz over the developments. So what happened here? Is this natural or another example of man's effect on the global environment.
