Operation Freakout It’s best not to speak out against the Church of Scientology or you might just have a poorly titled operation carried out against you.

Operation Dynamite Operation Dynamite was the Church of Scientology’s 3rd and most devious attempt to have Paulette Cooper incarcerated or put in a psychiatric institution.

13 Amazing Pets Who Saved Their Owners
Pets can be very loyal and in some cases they are able to save their owners life when something bad happened to them. Here are some pets who saved their owners. Subscribe to World5List http://goo.gl/cpJSA6 Find us on... -- http://www.boredbadger.com -- http://www.facebook.com/world5list Pets Who Saved Their Owners Let's face it we can't leisurely look through Instagram without coming across an adorable puppy or kitten photo, and what would our days be like without these cute and cuddly critters?\ Kelsey New Year's Eve is an exceptionally fun and exciting time for most individuals, but this wasn't the case for one Michigan man. The man was watching a football game and decided to go outside for commercial break to get some firewood when he slipped and fell on the ice. Fidge We've heard of a cat scan, but this might be a little extraordinary. This heroic animal might just be what hospitals all over the country need to order. One woman claimed that her pet cat, Fidge ended up saving her life. She alerted her of her Breast Cancer diagnosis before it was too late. Dopey Don't be fooled by the name because Dopey is an intelligent dog with a special gift. There's plenty of research that prove dogs can sense when their owners will have an epileptic seizure. One strong bond was formed by a 12-year-old and his 4-year-old service dog named Dopey. Sergeant Stubby Dogs really are man's best friend, especially if that man happens to be a soldier in World War 1. Sergeant Stubby became the official mascot of the 102nd Infantry Regiment of the U.S in the first World War. He served 18 months and was active in seventeen battles on the Western Front. Nanook Dogs are pretty great swimmers, but there are quite a few breeds that don't take so keenly to the waters. Lucky for one man that's not the case with this chocolate Labrador named Nanook. Ferocious Lion Saviors It's hard to imagine a world that exists where little girls can be kidnapped from their families and then be beaten and raped until they give in to marrying a person. That kind of world does exist, but lucky for this little girl she had some help from the top of nature's food chain, three lions came to her rescue after she had been missing for a number of days and was being attacked by seven men. Lily The tornado that went through Joplin, Missouri was one of the most devastating ones to ever hit the United States. There was one sweet pup who worked tirelessly during rescue efforts and saved many people in the aftermath of the tornado. Killian It's easy to understand why parents have started putting nanny cams in their house just as a precaution, but lucky for this family that it was their pet dog who ended up saving their young son from abuse. The South Carolina babysitter was arrested after being attacked by a dog, but it turned out the dog was actually protecting his 7-month old owner. Heroic Bear One unexpected savior came when a senior citizen was hiking and a mountain lion suddenly attacked. The lion ended up biting down on the California man's arm, but he was lucky enough to be saved by a bear. The bear ran from a nearby area and scare off the mountain lion. LuLu If you first came across LuLu, the potbellied pig you probably wouldn't think much of her. Lulu's owner suffered a heart attack while vacationing in the Northern woods of Pennsylvania. Togo No plane or ship could reach an isolated Alaskan village known as Nome in 1925 and the town was struck by a case of diphtheria. This is spread through the air and takes two to five days for symptoms to occur.

8 Creepy Facts About Space
Aliens and UFO's are popular topics on YouTube. But those aren't the only scary and creepy things when it comes to what all is out there in the universe! Subscribe to World5List http://goo.gl/cpJSA6 Find us on... -- http://www.boredbadger.com -- http://www.facebook.com/world5list Scary Facts About Space It is human nature to be afraid of the unknown. It is our fear of the unknown that horror movies and thrillers prey on. So it is only natural that outer space, humanities biggest unknown, would be the source of some of the most terrifying objects and occurrences in the universe. Here we will explore some of the most terrifying facts about outer space. 55 Cancri e - Jannsen 55 Cancri e – a planet that Kay Jewlers wishes they could get their hands on. 55 Cancri e otherwise known as Janssen has gained much attention in recent years because of its unique elemental make up. The Real Death Star (Starkiller Base) If you saw Star Wars The Force Awakens you definitely remember the death star rip off called the Starkiller Base. In the movie, the Starkiller Base is a planet like headquarters that drains the energy of a solar systems sun to power its own weapon. Rogue Planets Rogue Planets – they are exactly what they sound like. A planet that is not bound to a solar system, that is just flying through space at millions of miles per hour. The Supervoid In 2004 astronomers noticed one of the strangest occurrences to date in the observable universe. They noticed a uncharacteristically cold spot in the universe that spanned over 1.8 billion light years. This is the largest structure in the universe. Black Holes Black holes are one of the most interesting and terrifying bodies in the universe. Our known laws of physics seem to break down when it comes to explaining black holes. If you have seen the movie Interstellar you already know what we are talking about. Gliese 581 c Scientists are constantly looking for habitable planets near our solar system. Part of the reason for this search is to see if humans can achieve interstellar colonization. Europa Next we will bring things back a little closer to home, specifically to one of the moons of Jupiter. Jupiter has around 67 known moons, many of which have become a point of interest to scientists that are in search of extraterrestrial life. The Multiverse Europeans once believed that they were the only country in existence and then they discovered “The New World”. There was once a time where humans believed that the earth was the only planet in existence. We soon learned that we are just once of many planets in our solar system.

8 Old People Who Committed Crimes
Old people commit crimes and break the law too. Some even rob banks! Check out these bad grandpa's and grandma's who all got in trouble with the police. Subscribe to World5List http://goo.gl/cpJSA6 Find us on... -- http://www.boredbadger.com -- http://www.facebook.com/world5list Not every little old lady is as sweet as your grandmother, and not every old man is as crippled as he looks. Just because they’re elderly doesn’t mean they’re innocent. Drug Dealer Grandma This granny’s got more than butterscotches and tissues in her purse. And that smell isn't her dental cream...It’s the rank odor of crime. Darlene Mayes, a 75-year-old grandmother living in Vinita, Oklahoma, puts most drug dealers to shame Strapped for Cash Apparently, social security just wasn’t cutting it….so what do these elderly men decide to do? Rob a bank, naturally. In April 2010, former mobsters 73-year-old Jerry Scalise, 71-year-old Arthur Rachel, and 69-year-old Robert Pullia were plotting to rob a La Grange bank in Chicago. Not only that, they were also planning on robbing the home of late former mob leader Angelo LaPietra. Sandy Jell-O Who wants to pay for something when you can find a way to get it for free? That’s what this elderly couple did, except they weren’t clipping coupons. Toys for Granny Next time you’re grandparents come to your house for the holidays bearings tons of gifts, you may want to ask where they came from. Seventy-three-year-old Virginia Kelly, who just so happens to be a foster mother and the president of the Latino Foster Parents Association, turned out to be a real-life Grinch, stealing Christmas from poor children for years. Playing with Fire If you think you hate your in-laws, check this out. This family drama all started with a marriage and a dowry. Don’t Mess with Grandpa’s Cash If you think you want a career helping the elderly, you may want to reconsider. In 2009, James Amburn, an American financial advisor living in West Germany, had invested approximately 2,496,500 dollars on behalf of a bunch of elderly German pensioners, promising a 12 percent return. Geriatric Bonnie & Clyde This husband-and-wife duo proves that not all old people should be trusted. Ray, who was no stranger to theft and forgery, married Faye soon after he was released from jail due to petty crimes. As their need for money increased with each child born into their family, his crimes intensified. Hatton Garden Burglary This next crime earned the title, “Largest Burglary in English Legal History”...and yup, it was committed by a bunch of old guys. While old, they were definitely seasoned veterans. Once the Hatton Garden Safe Deposit Company locked its doors for Easter in 2015, four elderly men, ranging from 58 to 76 years old, entered the area through a lift shaft and then drilled holes into the nearly 20-inch-thick vault wall to get around the main vault door.

7 Amazing Discoveries By Amateur Archaeologists
The amateur archaeologists in this video all made some amazing finds and discoveries. These lucky people found gold, artifacts and other expensive stuff burried under the ground... Subscribe to World5List http://goo.gl/cpJSA6 Find us on... -- http://www.boredbadger.com -- http://www.facebook.com/world5list Just because you're not a professional with a degree, doesn't mean you can't find incredible things in the dirt. Sometimes, all you need is a metal detector and a lot of luck to find some of the most amazing archeological finds... Ancient ruins, coins, swords, even a World War Two bomber can all be found without any kind of proper training. Anybody can find priceless artifacts if they just look hard enough... Number X. Ballarat Nugget Gold is super valuable... at least that's what the late night infomercials say, anyway. As of writing, gold is sitting at about $39 per gram, which... yeah, that's pretty good. To put that into perspective, a gram of gold could put gas into your car, and buy you a pizza and rent a movie (if you stretched it). In other words, a gram of gold is a pretty decent night in. Number X. Roman Era artifacts Ran Feinstien and Ofer Raanan are two Israeli novice divers who were diving around the ancient port of Caesarea when they stumbled onto something crazy.... a wealth of ancient roman sculptures and artifacts. Number X. 3,000 year old Bronze-age sword For this next entry, let's head all the way to the Denmark... assuming you aren't already in Denmark, I guess. A pair of Danish friends, Ernst Christiansen and Lis Therkildsen, had brought a metal detector out for a walk out in a field, in the town of Svebolle. Number X. World War 2 Bomber found by Veterans Let me introduce you to Operation Nightingale. It's an archaeological project that lets veterans go out into the field and practice some basic archaeology at various sites. The project is used as a means to give injured veterans, or veterans struggling with psychological trauma a different kind of therapy, if they want it. That's where a group of veterans in the UK come into play. Number X. Mr. Rajaguru's Bizarre temple adventures An Indian schoolteacher walks into a forest... No, that wasn't a set-up for a joke or anything, an Indian schoolteacher, named Mr. Rajaguru was actually walking in a forest, when he found an ancient temple. That's a pretty productive hike, if I do say so myself... Number X. gold bracelets in Denmark Remember the "Apocalypse" list we did awhile back, and how we went on and on about vikings? Well that's because Vikings are cool... At least this writer thinks so, anyway. Back to the topic, though: A small team of amateur archaeologists discovered a huge cache of golden viking bracelets in Denmark. the bracelets were all found relatively close to each other... and that's a really big deal. Number X. Roman Emperor's needed slaves for their tunnels... or the other way around? Probably the other way around. Tivoli, Italy. The home of Roman Emperor Hadrian's Villa. It's a villa... with a giant system of underground tunnels! Honorable mentions: Janet Stephens, a professional hairdresser and sometimes amateur archaeologist, discovered an ancient roman hairstyle that had been lost to time. Which is super impressive and cool since it's literally a revival of history. Number X. Ithaca Ever read up on your greek? Ever hear of a little obscure book called... The Odyssey? That question was rhetorical, if you've seriously never heard of or read The Odyssey, go find your local library, if those even still exist.

6 Places More Mysterious Than The Bermuda Triangle...?
The Bermuda Triangle is a mysterious place where ships and plains mysteriously disappear without leaving a trace but the Bermuda Triangle isn’t the only crazy phenomenal place on earth. Subscribe to World5List http://goo.gl/cpJSA6 Find us on... -- http://www.boredbadger.com -- http://www.facebook.com/world5list One of the greatest mysteries in the world is the Bermuda Triangle. A large area in the Atlantic where planes and boats mysteriously disappear Without a Trace. There've been thousands of stories to come from the Bermuda Triangle in attempts to explain the strange phenomenon but few offer concrete evidence. But you might be surprised that the bermuda triangle isnt the only crazy location on earth. The dyatlov pass If you wanted around the darkest parts of YouTube for long enough you have undoubtedly come across the story of the dyatlov pass. Going on a camping trip after graduating college with some of your best friends sounds like a great idea. That is exactly what 10 students from the Ural Polytechnic University did in 1959. On the morning of February 2nd 1959 the group of students set out On their hike. The South Atlantic anomaly. In the South Atlantic regions including much of South America and parts of South Africa there is a belt of cosmic radiation that causes severe interference for our technology. This this is called in Van Allen radiation which is a product of Earth's magnetic field holding onto charged particles from solarwinds and other Cosmic radiation. These zones in which the particles float are called radiation belts and in the case of the Earth's belt they are called Van Allen belts as they were discovered by James Van Allen. The Devil's Sea. The Devil's Sea is sometimes referred to as the Bermuda Triangle of the Pacific. the reason you probably haven't heard about it is that it is usually only referenced in Japanese culture as it lies just off the coast of Japan 100 km south of Tokyo. Point Pleasant, West Virginia West Virginia is a scary place and not just because it's the meth capital of America. The name Point Pleasant might ring a bell is it was the backdrop for the popular Richard Gere movie, The Mothman Prophecies. The movie was the dramatic retelling of the events that took place in the town of Point Pleasant from November 1966 to December 1967. Bridgewater Triangle, Massachusetts. Besides sports teams New England has little to offer with the exception of a couple haunted spots. This 200-mile expanse lies in the Southeastern part of the state just a few miles south of Boston. What makes this place so interesting is that it's famous for Supernatural, extraterrestrial, cryptozoological, and just plain old murderous activity. The Bridgewater Triangle first came to Media attention in the 1970s when people hiking through the forest claim to see reptile like birds that resembled pterodactyls. Just a few years after that another man hiking through the woods claim to see a Savage Hound so large it was able to eviscerate 2 of his horses. On another occasion a different group of people claim to see cult activity in the area. San Luis Valley, Colorado. you might remember us mentioning the San Luis Valley in Southern Colorado in a previous video. This was the place where a cattle rancher came out to find almost all of his livestock dead completely skinned alive with some of their organs almost surgically removed. maybe the most interesting part is that many of these animals were bled dry.

11 Most Overlooked Unsolved Mysteries in History
There are a lot of unanswered questions about mysteries in history. We explore some of the most overlooked mysteries in history. Subscribe to World5List http://goo.gl/cpJSA6 Find us on... -- http://www.boredbadger.com -- http://www.facebook.com/world5list It is the fate of some questions to go unanswered throughout the ages, but even these unresolved issues can become neglected when enough time passes. Coming up… Poseidon’s ancient city, European mummies, lost civilizations, and more. Join us as we explore some of the most overlooked mysteries in history! City of Helike When you worship the god of the sea, you might do well to fear his wrath if you anger him. The Greek writer Pausanias described an amazing city called Helike that worshipped Poseidon and was a bustling metropolis of trade, commerce, and religion… until it was destroyed. Carnac Stones Stonehenge is a famous and long-standing architectural and historical mystery, but it’s not alone in this category. The Carnac stones are a lesser known but equally confusing phenomenon. The Fall of the Minoans The legend of Theseus and the minotaur in the labyrinth is a wonderful tale, but it raises some unanswered historical questions. On the island of Crete, where this wonderful civilization did in fact prosper, despite a story of bull-headed demi gods, there lie the ruins of an ancient civilization whose extinction is still a mystery. Tarim Mummies Finding well-preserved bodies is always an interesting day in the life of an archeologist, but some of these graves provide more questions than they answer. In the Tarim basin of Western China, a team on a dig discovered two thousand year old mummies in early 1990s. Easter Island There are many obvious mysteries about Easter Island, and almost all of them are centered around the giant, iconic heads that litter the landscape. But these photogenic monuments take away from one of the deeper, more subtle mysteries. Rongorongo predates the statues, and is a manuscript describing a language of possibly the first inhabitants of the island. Bog Bodies The preservation power of tar pits allows us to take a deeper look at ancient creatures like the wooly mammoth, but when it comes to humans, things get a bit weirder. The marshes and wetlands of Northern Europe are home to a number of interesting, boggy landscapes, but as a traveler you might be inclined not to dig too deeply. Jack The Ripper Some crimes go so long without being solved that the cold case just gets buried in the decades. For over one hundred years, various historians, crime-writers, and detectives have been trying to solve the identity of the man known as Jack the Ripper. The Mary Celeste There are many mysterious disappearances that take place in the vast realm of the sea. In 1872 the American merchant ship The Mary Celeste departed New York for Genoa on November the seventh. A Canadian ship found her off of the coast of Azores Islands completely adrift. Devil’s footprints Some historical mysteries lead in a direction that few want to follow. In the early morning of February 9th, 1855, townsfolk in southern Devon came across a set of footprints that chilled their hearts and raised some pretty severe questions. A single, straight line of footprints looked as if it had been branded in the deep snow with a hot iron. Voynich Manuscript Just because something is an unknown mystery for the ages, doesn’t mean it can’t be beautiful. The Voynich manuscript is what remains of a large, elaborate book dating back to the early fourteen hundreds. What makes this article unique is that it’s in a language no one has ever seen before, and no one knows what the book is about. Indus Valley The collapse of the Mayan metropolis was impressive and well-studied, as the society crumbled due largely to disease brought by the conquistadors. It’s odd then that a similar ruined civilization in India should receive so little attention, considering its size and the mystery of its decline. This concludes our list of most overlooked mysteries in history. What baffling ancient secret did you find most compelling? What odd historical unknown did we miss? Let us know in the comments below.

Subscribe to World5List http://goo.gl/cpJSA6 Find us on... -- http://www.boredbadger.com -- http://www.facebook.com/world5list Who would have thought that the happiest place on earth is also the creepiest? What many don’t know is that Disney has a tremendous amount of ghost sightings. Haunted Mansion Ghosts The Haunted Mansion seems to be the most appropriate place for a Disney spirit to hang out, and there definitely isn’t a shortage of spooky stories that emerge from the allegedly haunted attraction Unknown Little Boy We’ll begin our spooky stories with that of a little boy that is said to haunt the Haunted Mansion. A Bizarre Memorial That little boy in the picture isn’t the only child that loves to play in the mansion...there’s another one, but this one is a tad bit creepier. Ghostly Employee Unlike the eerie little boys that disrupt the Haunted Mansion ride, this next ghost might just prove to be more helpful. Pirates of the Caribbean Ghosts While the Haunted Mansion seems to be the most obvious place to find a ghost, the Pirate of the Caribbean ride is another popular spirit hot spot. George George is definitely the most famous Pirates of the Caribbean spirit. According to legend, a man named George, who worked as a construction worker in the early 1970s, helped build the ride but died a tragic death on the job. Other Pirates of the Caribbean Ghosts There are a few other ghosts that have been seen roaming around the inside of this popular attraction. Other Ghost Sightings While most of the famous ghosts are seen on two of the park’s most popular rides, they aren’t the only places you can go ghost hunting. The Unamused Ghost When one individual boarded the Dinosaur ride in the Animal Kingdom, an undistinguished older man sat down next to him. Haunted Dolls According to the word on the street, several Disney employees loved working at the It’s a Small World ride so much that they never really left. The Tower of Terror Bellhop One of the employees that was hired to be a Tower of Terror bellhop died from a heart attack during his shift. Space Mountain Hitchhiker If you ever find yourself sitting next to an empty seat on Space Mountain, it probably won’t be empty for long. Roy Disney Some Disney guests have claimed to see the ghost of Walt Disney co-founder Roy Disney on Main Street U.S.A. Every time he’s spotted, he’s smiling. These are just some of the ghost sightings and stories that we found floating around. We’re sure there are other Disney legends and ghostly tales that we haven’t heard of.

Top 10 Most Awesome Metal Detector Finds Ever
Metal detectors can change people’s life! Here are some metal detecting finds people found in various different locations. Subscribe to World5List http://goo.gl/cpJSA6 Searching for things with metal detectors has been a hobby among amateurs and professionals alike since its development in the 1920s because there’s really no telling what you might find. The Boot of Cortez Even though deserts look barren, they might be rich in valuable metals such as one lucky metal detectorist discovered in 1989. Torc Finds If you’re looking for more inspiration, here’s another story of a guy that bought a random metal detector and hit the jackpot. One day, a 35-year-old man named Dave Booth bought a metal detector. Antique Gold Chalice Next time you head out to the beach, you might want to bring along a metal detector. In 2008, a man named Mike DeMar was searching for treasure along the coast of Key West when he struck gold. Anglo-Saxon Treasure You don’t necessarily have to head to the beach or spend hours in the scorching desert to find some great treasures. One man found everything he’d been looking for right in his own backyard. Hidden Cash Speaking of finding things in your backyard, that might not be the best spot to hide your stolen cash... Ringlemere Cup Sometimes, your hobbies make you rich...like Cliff Bradshaw. In 2001, Cliff, a retired electrician, had always loved archeology and metal detecting, so he decided to make a hobby out of it. One day, while he was scanning a field in East Kent, England, he found a crumpled up piece of metal. Roman Remains Sometimes when you’re digging up ancient artifacts, you’re bound to find the unexpected. Metal detectorists, Dave Derby and Alan Standish, were scanning a site that was known to yield valuable artifacts in Nether Heyford. Roman Coins What’s better than finding a skeleton from the Roman era? Finding their stash of cash, of course. In 2009, thirty-year-old newbie metal detectorist Nick Davies was on his first metal detecting adventure, looking for hidden gems in Shropshire, when his metal detector started beeping. Axe Head If you ever dabble with metal detecting, don’t be discouraged if you don’t find something within your first few tries. Finding something of value on your first excursion is almost unheard of, and fortunately for Steve Hickling, he never gave up. Antique Pendant Who says you have to be an adult….or even enrolled in kindergarten….to be able to find valuables with a metal detector? Four-year-old James Hyatt and his father were in a field located in Hockley hunting for treasure with their metal detector when they unearthed the find of a lifetime. It’s true that you’ll never know what’s below the surface of the Earth unless you look! Have you ever found anything valuable using a metal detector? Do you know of any other great metal detector finds that aren’t on our list?

Robinson Terminal If there’s one thing the city of Alexandria, Virginia is known for it’s the history of this important American city. Basically, most of its history lies in the shipping industry as well as the tobacco planting which made up a large portion of Alexandria’s economy. There was much dispute about whether or not trade should be allowed on the Potomac river and whether or not the ships should be allowed passage in the late 1700’s. 9. Lost Dark Age Kingdom of Galloway Oh, there’s nothing quite as exciting as the Medieval Times, and no I’m not talking about the Dinner Theater show which features chivalry, rivalry and revelry! Although, I wouldn’t say no to a Dragon’s Wing and an adult beverage. Perchance another morrow because now it’s time to tell you about a cool archaeological discovery. 8. Giant Colossus Unearthed Everyone makes mistakes and this includes archaeologists and historians. It’s just a part of human nature, you’ve got to fall off that horse and get back on again. Or however that old saying goes. 7. Ancient Prenup Upon first glance this document might look like some romantic Egyptian poetry or some kind of perfectly complex ancient code of law. Turns out this eight-foot long scroll written 2,480 years ago was a form of hieroglyphic shorthand which came from an ancient prenup. Not the most romantic sort of thing, but here I thought prenups were fairly modern pieces of document. Well, turns out I was incorrect. 6. Easter Island Did Not Destroy Itself Through Ecocide For quite some time historians, archaeologists and science came together as a community believing the Rapa Nui, the native Polynesian inhabitants of Easter Island in the Pacific Ocean had committed Ecocide destroying their forests and devastating their food supply and soil to basically starve themselves. 5. Long Lost Temple of Artemis Discovery Sometimes researchers and archaeologists go by their instincts and in this case it turns out they would be pretty on the spot when searching for a mysterious hidden temple dedicated to an ancient deity. They knew this temple to Artemis must be on the Greek island of Euboe because it had such a long association with the deity. 4. World’s Largest Dinosaur Footprint Who would have guessed that Australia was actually a real-life Jurassic Park at one time. If you didn’t guess it, mate, well I don’t blame you. It was around 130 million years ago when dinosaurs decided to get a bit cozy on the river delta of what is now the remote Kimberley region of western Australia. 3. Long Lost Declaration of Independence with Different Signature Placement Listen, there’s very rarely any drama that occurs when it comes to archival documents but when it does it should most certainly make headlines. A piece of the Declaration of Independence had been stashed away in a West Sussex Record Office in England. 2. Pyramid Fit for a Princess Have you heard the saying a castle fit for a princess… but what about a pyramid? At the site of Dahshur in Egypt, a 3,8000 year-old pyramid with an alabaster block and the name of pharaoh Ameny Qemau was discovered. 1. Renaissance Couple Buried with Their Hearts Oh, it sounds like some weirdly romantic Romeo and Juliet story but it’s something only a Renaissance couple could have conceived as remotely suitable as a way to reciprocate one’s love.

5 Miracles Science Can’t Explain
Science has explanations to many questions in different fields, but for these miracle happenings not even science has any answers. Subscribe to World5List http://goo.gl/cpJSA6 Find us on... -- http://www.boredbadger.com -- http://www.facebook.com/world5list Every now and then scientists come across an event that doesn't seem like it can be explained rationally. Many of these situations are seen in f quantum physics but this is mostly due to our lack of understanding in the field. Some of the most interesting stories that science can’t explain come from the medical field. These stories range from the disappearance of a fatal disease to people returning from the dead. Join us as we look at various miracles that science can’t explain. Lynn Jennifer Groesbeck How does someone who has been dead for 14 hours call out for help? That is exactly the mystery that Spanish Fork police have been unable to answer. Early one morning on the Spanish Forks River officer Bryan Dewitt received call from a local claiming that there was an overturned car in the river. The man on the phone said that he could hear a baby crying and someone screaming from within. The water was rushing far too fast for him to reach the car so he was unable to help. Police immediately rushed to the scene of the accident and began trying to reach the overturned vehicle. Sharyn Mackay Here is one of the most popular medical miracles that science was unable to explain. You might remember back in 2009 where a woman from Northern Ireland was diagnosed with spindle cell carcinoma. She was one of 10 cases where the disease had spread to her kidneys. Doctors told Mackay that many of the most lethal tumors were inoperable and chemotherapy was likely going to be ineffective. In true Irish fashion they told her to grab a beer because it was time to tell her family that she was not going to make it through the year. Mackay and her family were devastated by the news. Ruby Graupera-Cassimiro You have undoubtedly heard stories about people going for a few minutes without a pulse and returning to life via the magic of defibrillators. But rarely do you hear stories of people coming back and living normal lives after the 5 minute mark. It is after this 5 minute mark where your brain begins to experience permanent damage due to oxygen deprivation. Despite this little fact there have been some people who have returned to the land of the living without experiencing any adverse effects from their temporary death. Grayson Kirby If you participate in a demolition derby or bull riding you should expect to get a few broken bones every now and then. Grayson Kirby decided to take the risk of participating in a derby and got a little bit more than he bargained for. During the competition he was part of a nearly fatal wreck. Nearly 50% of the bones in his body were either broken or outright crushed in the accident. Both of his lungs were collapsed and he had severe organ damage and internal bleed. In the ambulance the paramedics said that they were unsure if he would make it to the hospital. Water-house Friderichsen Syndrome Water-house Friderichsen Syndrome it might sound like a textbook publishing company but it is actually a rare blood disease. This bacterial blood infection often causes massive hemorrhaging into the adrenal gland. The symptoms that follow usually include low blood pressure, comas, organ failures and shock. The infection can be brought on for a number of reasons from meningitis to pneumonia. In the case of a medical student in 1975 it was the latter. While the disease is treatable if dealt with in a timely fashion it usually leaves the patient incredibly disabled. In the case of this medical student she was working at a facility that had a 0% success rate with the infection. These have been some of the strangest miracles that science can't explain. Let us know some of your favorite miracles in the comments below.

10 Extinct Animals You Never Knew WERE Real
Once scary, bizarre and strange creatures roamed our earth. Here are some extinct animals you didn’t even know ever existed. Subscribe to World5List http://goo.gl/cpJSA6 Find us on... -- http://www.boredbadger.com -- http://www.facebook.com/world5list The world if full of life, but not all life continues on, and if it’s not documented, or discovered, how can we know about it? Join us as we talk about some extinct animals you never knew were real. 1. Megalodon Ok, we’ll admit, you probably did know about this one, but not for the reasons of it actually being real. 2. Gigantopithecus From Jaws to Planet of the Apes, it’s honestly not too much of a surprise that there was an ape that grew to massive sizes. But what sets the Gigantopithecus apart was just how big it could get. 3. Giant Swan Ok, so we’ve had the giant sea creature, we’ve had the giant land creature, where’s my giant bird? And no, we don’t mean Pterodactyls or other dinosaurs, we meant a literal bird that isn’t around anymore. 4. Irish Elk Any hunters out there? It’s ok if you’re are, we’re not judging you, we’re using it as a point of reference. 5. Elasmotherium From giant antlers to giant horns, it’s not hard to imagine certain creatures on Earth right now being descended from the Elasmotherium. 6. Great Auk They say that history is written by the victors, and if Penguins are victors, then the Great Auk is the loser. 7. Laughing Owl From the ironic, to the creepy, let’s talk about the laughing owl. Now, technically, there are species of laughing owl still out there today. The one we’re talking about was one native to New Zealand. Species name Sceloglaux albifacies. 8. Falkland Islands Wolf I’m not going to lie, I love wolves. I love just about everything about them. So when I came across the sad tale of the Falkland Islands Wolf, I knew I had to put it on the list. 9. Bluebuck Speaking of hunting to extinction, let’s talk about the Bluebuck. This creature might be self-explanatory, but it’s still a really cool creature to think about. The Bluebuck’s were native to Southern Africa for some time. 10. Barabary Lions Many creatures on this list are considered ancestors of certain other creatures on our Earth, or “tales to astonish” in many ways. Yet, one very sad tale of extinction is very recent, and it is entirely the fault of humanity for this creatures extinction. We speak of course of the Barbary Lion.

7 Cursed and Haunted Objects
There have been objects that seem to always be followed by horror and bad luck. Here we explore some of the world’s most cursed objects. Subscribe to World5List http://goo.gl/cpJSA6 Find us on... -- http://www.boredbadger.com -- http://www.facebook.com/world5list Cursed Objects Throughout history in all cultures there have been objects that seem to always be followed by death and bad luck. Annabelle You may have heard of the Annabelle doll in recent years because of the horror movie series The Conjuring or the eponymous film that came soon after. The Annabelle doll is said to be possessed by the ghost of a girl named Annabelle Higgins. The Myrtle Plantation Mirror This is a mirror that not even Justin Timberlake would be happy to look in to. On the Myrtle Plantation in southeastern Louisiana there exists a mirror that many believe to be one of the most haunted objects in the world. The Dibbuk Box Happy Hannukah ladies and gentiles, here is a cabinet you won’t want to store your most kosher of wines. A man name Kevin Mannis first purchased the Dybbuk box at an estate sale in 2003. Upon purchasing the box Mannis immediately began to have horrific nightmares. The Dead Man’s Chair– The Busby Stoop Chair In 1702 a man named Thomas Busby entered into the counterfeiting game with another local named Daniel Awety. Busby soon fell madly in love with his counterfeiting partners daughter and was planning on marrying her. Robert The Doll Annabelle isn’t the only doll that has an unsettling history behind it. Robert is the 20th century doll that inspired those terrible Chucky movies. The origins of the doll have been traced back to a turn of the century painter named Robert Eugene Otto. Otto reportedly received the doll from a Bahamian servant who apparently was accused of practicing black magic. James Dean’s Car American bad boy James Dean was one of the most famous movie stars of the 1950’s. His untimely death at the age of 24 shook the nation. He was killed in car wreck after he lost control of his beloved Porsche Spyder while speeding down Route 466 in Salinas, California. The Iceman This iceman might even give frosty the snow man a few chills up his spine. The Iceman is a mummified body that was found in the Otzal Alps in Italy. The mummy was named Otzi after the area in which he was found. Scientists believe that Otzi lived around 3,300 BCE and died from exposure. There are many seemingly haunted or cursed objects around the world but few seem to be as malevolent as these. Mummies, cursed cars, talking dolls, mystical mirrors and angry wine boxes are more than enough reason not to anger the spirits. Let us know if there are any more cursed objects that we may have missed.

The Dumbest Prison Escape Attempts Ever
These prisoners attempted some of the dumbest prison escape or break attempts that were ever tried. Prison break has nothing on these prisoners, or does it...? Subscribe to World5List http://goo.gl/cpJSA6 The thought of going to prison isn’t exactly the most soothing thing in the world. Being told when to sleep, when to wake up, when you can eat.. and then trying to determine what youre eating while watching your back and hoping you don’t take a shank in the kidney. We start easy with the story of James Russell who was spending some time away from home in the Olympic Corrections center in Washington. Russell decided he wasn’t happy with his accommodations any more and that he would get out of the minimum security facility with no more than a mild plan to borrow a phone from the first person he came across. Maybe Russell would have had more success had he implemented the plan of Kenneth Burnum, but then again.. maybe not. Kenneth Burnum decided his best bet for getting out of jail was to impersonate someone else. The only problem is that the person he chose to be was black. Andrew joseph Wilson is another high IQ inmate on our list as his escape attempt defies all logic and intelligence. Wilson was sentenced to only 20 days in the slammer for his crimes of burglary, theft. But prisoners aren’t only this dumb in America, the stupidity spreads all across the world.. like one now infamous prisoner in Brazil who got stuck in a hole in the wall while trying to make his escape. Now most people who plan to tunnel out or get out via a small opening would spend weeks planning, digging, and ultimately trying to lose weight to make sure that their plan went off without any issues. But one unfortunate prisoner out of a gang of four had obviously been hitting the commissary a little too hard as on his attempt through the hole, he got stuck. Ranking high on our list of top prison escape movies of all time is the shawshank redemption in which tim robbins delivers a highly regarded and epic performance of a man who escapes prison through unlikely circumstance. Also in prison escape attempts that stunk, William Alves decided he was tired of working in the prison kitchen and decided he would excuse himself from his sentence by stuffing himself in a trash can, covering up with leftovers and rotted food and would simply wait to be dumped. Also inspired by the media and their portrayals of high class prison escapes, two men at a Louisville Kentucky prison got the bright idea to tie a bunch of bed sheets together and slither down the outer wall of their facility. The only problem is the men were either never boy scouts.. or sailors, because their make shift bed sheet ropes failed them miserably. And in a more conventional approach, four inmates at the meade county jail in Sturgis decided rather than concoct some fancy scheme or escape plan, they would simply just fight their way out. At approx. 2 in the morning during a cell check, they decided to the guard making the rounds and then simply go bloodsport all the way to freedom. Ralph Wilson was equally as smart when he tried to escape the ripley county jail by prying some fencing apart. The only issue is that he tried to do it at 415 in the afternoon, in broad daylight, while the prison was hustling and bustling. And in perhaps the most creative and outlandish attempt at escape, a man who obviously didn’t have a pilots license or a certification with the FAA did his best attempt at reenacting Indiana Jones and the last crusade when he and his cohorts tried a Hollywood style escape attempt that even Michael bay would be baffled by.

CRAZIEST Things Ancient Egyptians Did!
Check out the craziest things ancient egyptians did! This top 10 list of ancient egypt facts has some amazing things from ancient egyptian civilization!

PEOPLE SHAVED TO AVOID LICE At almost any given time in Ancient Egypt, lice infestations were at epidemic levels. Maybe you experienced a lice outbreak happening during your school years, or camp or something!! Let us know in the comments!! But this, was much worse! In fact, the only way for people to avoid catching lice in Ancient Egypt was to remain as hairless as possible. 8. SMEARING SLAVES WITH HONEY TO KEEP FLIES AWAY Learning about how Pharaoh Pepi II kept flies away makes me thankful for modern insect repellant. Apparently, Pepi II despised flies - so much so, that he smeared naked slaves with honey and made them stand in a nearby room so that insects would stay away from him and flock to his servants. 7. BIZARRE METHODS OF CONTRACEPTION Several methods of contraception, which were arguably ahead of their time, were available to the Ancient Egyptians, who placed a high value on medical research. One of these concoctions consisted of a mixture of acacia gum, honey, and lint, used to block sperm from reaching the ovaries. 6. ROYALS PRACTICED INCEST In Ancient Egypt, it was common for members of royal families to marry their cousins and siblings. Rulers believed they were descended from the gods and therefore procreated with relatives because it was thought to keep their bloodline pure. 5. LAXATIVES FOR BEAUTY Ongoing research on medicine during the times of the Pharaohs has revealed the widespread use of laxatives among Ancient Egyptians. It appears that constipation was one of the conditions of the time that kept doctors busy. Ancient Egyptians valued slim, muscular frames, but as you’ll learn later, they were no strangers to obesity. 4. ROYAL WOMEN WERE LEFT TO DECAY Ancient Egyptian mythology was fraught with sexual taboos, including instances of necrophilia. Such tales were used to explain both positive and negative aspects of their polytheistic beliefs. However, while necrophilia had its place in storytelling, it was not considered an acceptable practice among mortals. 3. OBESITY WAS COMMON AMONG ROYALS Despite a fit, muscular physique being the standard for beauty in Ancient Egypt, many Pharaohs were most likely obese. To say that Ancient Egyptian royals ate a lot is an understatement. In fact, it was customary for Pharaohs to feast three times daily on lavish banquets prepared by their priests. On the menu were foods containing high amounts of saturated fats and high in calories, including beef, wine, and cake. 2. EXTREMELY HARSH PUNISHMENTS In Ancient Egypt, the deck was stacked against a criminally accused person from the beginning. The justice system operated on a “guilty until proven innocent” basis and police often beat confessions out of the accused. Those found guilty were often outright killed or subjected to horrific physical abuse before being sent into forced labor. 1. SLAVES BURIED WITH THEIR MASTERS Contrary to popular belief, human sacrifice wasn’t regularly practiced throughout Ancient Egyptian history. In the early days of Ancient Egypt, however, ritual sacrifices of servants, known as “retainer sacrifices,” were a component to the burial process of royals. Scientists have discovered evidence of these sacrifices, including numerous decapitated bodies in graves dating as far back as 3500 B.C.

8 Dangerous Beaches You Want to AVOID
Beaches are known to be relaxing and beautiful but these beaches are dangerous because of their wildlife. These are 8 dangerous beaches that you will want to avoid at all costs Subscribe to World5List http://goo.gl/cpJSA6 Find us on... -- http://www.boredbadger.com -- http://www.facebook.com/world5list If you seen the movie Jaws or possibly that terrible movie with Blake Lively in it you should have a healthy fear of going into the water. But sharks are not the only thing that make beaches dangerous there numerous reasons why a beach might earn such an unfriendly label. From erupting volcanoes to cantankerous creatures here we will explore some of the most dangerous beaches around the world. Kauai Hawaii you wouldn't have guessed that one of the world's most popular vacation spots would also be one of the most dangerous beaches on the planet. For years this has served as Hollywood's for Vietnamese rainforest and the backdrop to your favorite Jurassic Park movies. Kauai nicknamed The Garden isle is famous for its tropical rainforests and generally favorable weather has a dark secret that has taken 83 bodies in recent years. Gansbaai, South Africa You might be familiar with the name of this Beach as a video went viral in the past few years showing a great white shark breaching a cage with the diver inside. South Africa is well known for not having the best beach security and maintenance. While some of the more affluent can afford places that are well-kept and out of Reach from our generously tooth friends the poor people are often subject to waiting into shark infested waters on the less maintain side of the coast. Kilauea Hawaii Once again Hawaii makes the list but once again it is not for an abundance of sharks. As you might no Hawaii's notorious for it's Volcanoes National Park and it's black sand beaches of Kilauea. Unknown to many Mount Kilauea is still a very much active volcano. Since 1983 it has continuously been losing molten rock down into the beaches and from time-to-time has even been known to erupt. Fraser Island Australia Well, you're in Australia so you should probably expect to die anyway but taking a visit to Fraser Island might be a quicker way to reach the grave. Frasier Ireland and the city's north and south of it are notorious for having some of the most dangerous beaches on the continent. The Waters of the island are known for their strong rip currents and I've taken many a surfer to their death over the past few decades. Northern Australia As we just said find a YouTube video of some pretty Australians talking and stay away from this entire continent. The sphere of danger is so large in this part of Australia it couldn't be isolated to a single Beach so we chose to identify an entire territory. Specifically we are talking about the Northern Territory of Australia whose waters are home to the infamous box jellyfish otherwise known as those venomous jellyfish that will kill you. Beaches Of The Amazon Once again the radius of tear is too wide to be narrowed down to a single Beach so we must simply name a continent. In this case it's South America and beaches along the Amazon rainforest. As you may know much of the Amazon rainforest is unexplored and new species of animals are found there by the thousands every decade. New Smyrna Beach, Florida Speaking of Florida let's take a visit to another Beach that has been nicknamed the shark attack capital of the world. New Smyrna Beach located in Volusia County has the highest recorded number of shark attacks in the world according to the Guinness Book of World Records. Volusia County has multiple other beaches in it that do not Trail far behind. thus far there been 238 recorded attacks at New Smyrna Beach but we are sure that is far from over because old people don't listen and Floridians arent the most perceptive people in the country. Cape tribulation Australia We here at World 5 like to give credit where credit is due and we would like to come in Cape tribulation Australia for not deceiving its potential parishioners with a flowery name and then surprising them with Pandora's box of evils. Cape tribulation lets you know up front it isn't here for a good time. so what makes Cape tribulation the least ideal vacation destination? There are hundreds of inhospitable beaches out in the world but few stand close to the ones on this list. While some have sharks, some may even have a few unsavory malcontents at least they don't have anacondas, box jellyfish, dingoes, the realest iteration of an Angry Bird outside an over rated iPhone app. Let us know some of your favorite dangerous beaches from around the world in the comments below.

Superpowers You Can Get RIGHT NOW!
Check out these superpowers you can get right now! From flying to telekinesis and superhuman strength, this top 10 list of superhero gadgets can turn you into batman or superman today! Subscribe to World5List: http://goo.gl/cpJSA6 Check out our "13 Amazing Pets Who Saved Their Owners" video at: https://youtu.be/bMwLm16_Q-0 Check out our "7 Celebrities Who Gave Their Kids Up For Adoption" video at: https://youtu.be/vVrlJFZ8sME 10. Telekinesis It might seem odd that arguably one of the most beneficial superpowers are so low on this list, but it'll make sense before long. Telekinesis is the ability to move things with your mind. Seen by such comic book characters as Jean Grey, Professor X, and more, the stronger your mind is, and the more control you have over your power, the more you can lift. 9. Immunity To Pain Another interesting one, but also one that's dangerous in its own right, is being able not to feel pain. Now, you might think, "Why would I want such a thing?" Well, when your body feels pain, it doesn't just affect the body, it affects the mind and your emotional state. You have to react to the pain, or focus to block it out. 8. Iron Suit If there's one thing that comics have taught us over the years, it's that you don't need to have "real" superpowers to be a superhero. Characters like Batman, Wildcat, and Iron Man prove that if you have the skills, you can do what's necessary to get the job done. Of those three, Iron Man has one of the most desired "superpowers" in the form of his Iron Man suit. 7. Wall Crawling Spider-Man is one of the most popular superhero characters of all time. And because of that, he is beloved for many of his powers. While I wish I was going to use this post about getting a real-life Spider-Sense, I sadly have to talk about one of his other powers. No, not webshooting, the other one, wall-crawling. 6. Bulletproof Today's world is violent, massively so in fact. And one of the biggest perpetrators of this violence is guns. Many people fear being shot, so you wouldn't be laughed at for wanting to be bulletproof. There are many characters that are bulletproof for one reason or another. Superman is because of his connection to the sun, Luke Cage is legendary for his whole body being bulletproof because of an accident. 5. Healing While many superpowers are based on being able to do something offensively, or even defensively, one power that most people agree would be cool to have no matter who they were is healing. Made most famous by Wolverine, having a healing factor would be dramatically epic. 4. Invisibility When people ask each other what superpower they want, invisibility is often near the top, and it's not hard to see why. It's practical, used by my superheroes and supervillains like Invisible Woman, Doctor Doom, and it can be one that you can use in everyday life. It makes perfect sense why people would want it. So, are we close to it? Yes, actually certain variations of invisibility are available right now. 3. Super Speed Ah, another one of the holy grail superpowers, super speed. The Flash, Quicksilver, Jay Garrick, and more have wielded speed for all sorts of great things...and bad things, but that's beside the point. 2. Super Strength The OTHER major holy grail superpower is super strength. Being able to life up cars with one hand, or punch through solid stone without a scratch to your hand. It's a very pleasing and intriguing thought. Even though some of us would just want to be the Hulk so we could smash things...not me though! 1. Flight The top 3 of this left are truly some of the superpowers people wish they had the most. But the biggest one in many polls is Flight. So many heroes and villains and characters fly there's no time to run them all down. However, the appeal of the power is worth talking about.

Proof That Giants Once Existed?
Have we found enough proof to conclude that giants were once among us? There is plenty of mysterious and unexplained evidence that might prove the existence of giants. Join us as we look at a few discoveries that might proof that giants existed. Subscribe to World5List http://goo.gl/cpJSA6 Find us on... -- http://www.boredbadger.com -- http://www.facebook.com/world5list Lord of The Rings is a nice read on its own it might enhance your experience to know that some aspects of the books might be more a little more fact than fiction. The Giants Of Ecuador In 2013 after heavy storms in Ecuador and Peru, a large female skull was found in the Loja province. The skull was dated by scientists and determined to be approximately 600 years old. The discovery of the skull sparked interest in finding the rest of the remains. Kentucky Dover Mound Since the late 19th century there have been many alleged discoveries of skeletal remains from so called giants. Many have been debunked but that still left more than enough separate discoveries to bring about suspicion of their existence. One of the stranger finds took place in Kentucky at the Dover Mound. The Dover Mound is a large Native American burial ground where some of the most strange physical and genetic anomalies have been discovered. One of these anomalies was the skeleton of a 7-foot male Adena man. The Lovelock Cave You would think by having Area 51 within your state lines you might just have your fill of the weird but that doesn't seem to be the case for Nevada. 20 miles south of Lovelock, Nevada there are caves that have been caught the eye of the world for over 100 years. The first strange reports from the area came in 1882 from a Native American tribe called the Paiute. The New York Giants While the giants we are going to be talking about have no relation to the Eli Manning and his band of Cro-magnon the coincidence is entertaining. In 1871 in the town of Cayuga the local newspaper reported on an archaeological dig that was taking place at the local Native American burial grounds. The dig gained media attention when visitors claimed that they saw giant skeletons being raised from the ground by the archaeologists. The Giants Of The Caucasus Mountains The generally uninteresting Caucas mountains have gained attention in recent years because of the alleged cave of giants found in 2008. The interest began in 2008 when a Georgian researcher by the name of Professor Vekua began researching the area. Vekua was a respected paleontologist best known for his work with the Homo Erectus Georgicus at the Dmanisi archaeological site. Giant Footprints One of the most cliché and but possibly best forms evidence that suggests the existence of giants are large footprints. There have been so many giant footprints that have been found over the centuries that it has been suggested that giants once walked the earth in large numbers. One of the most famous giant footprints was found outside of Mpuluzi, South Africa. It was found over 100 years ago by hunter a hunter named Stoffel Coetzee. Locals named it the Footprint of God. The print has been a point of interest to many religious groups who believe that the print belongs to Goliath. The print measure 1.2 meters long. Around the world, there have been similar footprints that have been found embedded in age-old rocks. In San José, a 2.5-meter footprint was found near a local ranch. In the same city, another 1.5-meter footprint was found on a cliff. Foreign explorers found a footprint twice the size of an average human's foot near a remote Chinese village. While these footprints are not proof that giants exist it does pose a challenging thought about how so many of these human-like impressions have been found around the world. These have been a just a few discoveries from around the world that suggest that giants once walked among us. While we may never be able to definitively prove the existence of giants until we catch one history has given us plenty of reason to believe that lived and still may live on this earth.

10 People who Fell into Animal Enclosures at Zoos
Subscribe to World5List http://goo.gl/cpJSA6 Find us on... -- http://www.boredbadger.com -- http://www.facebook.com/world5list Zoos are a place for the average person to see animals they might not ever get the chance to observe in the wild. Zoos also have the purpose of conserving certain species, trying to make sure they don't die out to extinction.. and in other cases they can be a sanctuary against poaching and hunters. Levan Merritt 1986 As encounters with great apes go, Harambe wasn't the first incident of a child falling into a gorilla enclosure. It happened at the Durrell Wildlife Park in Jersey, Channel Islands in the UK, when Five year old Levan Merrit somehow fell into the zoo's gorilla enclosure, falling far enough that he lost consciousness when he hit the ground. Beijing Zoo 2009 Pandas. They're endangered, and they're absolutely adorable. That cuteness draws in many crazy panda-fans for Gugu, a panda at the Beijing Zoo. People come from all over to see him, and more than a few have snuck into his enclosure. Pittsburgh zoo, 2012 For all of these stories, a surprising number don't end with someone being killed, considering they're usually just feet from dangerous and unpredictable predators. But fatalities unfortunately do still happen sometimes, as was the case for two year old Maddox Derkosh. Detroit Zoo, 1990 The Detroit zoo is a popular destination for many who wish to admire the wildlife of the world, and apparently also for those who like going where they shouldn’t be. This time though, the story has a happy ending, and the man had a good reason for jumping in. 33-year-old Rick Swope was enjoying his day at the Detroit zoo until he came across the chimpanzee exhibit.

Horror Stories of Cursed Dolls
You may have heard stories about the cursed doll Annabelle from the movie The Conjuring but Annabelle isn’t the only doll who is a scary paranormal haunted doll. Subscribe to World5List http://goo.gl/cpJSA6 Find us on... -- http://www.boredbadger.com -- http://www.facebook.com/world5list Cursed Dolls Everyone grew up with that one doll in their house that you could havesworn was watching you whenever you walked into the room. Maybe every time you turned back around it was sitting in a different position, or maybe its eyes just seemed to follow your every movement. You probably wondered if the doll was actually alive or if anyone in your family even owned it. These are just a few examples of situations that people have experienced around the world when trifling with dolls they believed to be cursed. While we can't promise that any of these porcelain punks is Chuckey's bride we assure you that these stories are anything but child's play. Annabelle Why not start with one of the most famous cases of cursed dolls. The story of the Annabelle doll was first popularized by the hit horror movie The Conjuring in 2013 & then once again in a separate movie simply called "Annabelle" a year later. The story of the doll begins with 2 college room mates in 1970, one girl, Donna, who had just began nursing school at the beginning of the year. While out shopping Donna's mother came across a large Raggedy Anne doll and felt the strange feeling that Donna might want it for her new apartment so she purchased it from a consignment shop. Donna happily accepted the gift and at this point all things were normal, but this was not a situation that would last long. Joliet A curse passed from generation to generation like male pattern baldness but slightly more sinister. The story of Joliet the doll is one that is sure to make the hair on the back of your neck stand up. There is a family who has endured a curse for 4 generations that kills the male child of the family with in 3 days of his birth. The curse began when a pregnant woman was gifted a strange doll from a jealous and vengeful acquaintance. It was said the lady went on to have twins, 1 boy & 1 girl. Honorable Mention Okiku It is said right after the first world war there was a young girl named Okiku who lived in the Japanese city of Iwamizawa. The 2-year old girl's 17-year-old brother purchased Okiku a doll as a souvenir while he was visiting a marine exhibition in the city. The doll had distinct short black hair, was dressed in ornate clothing, and had hallowed black eyes. The boy's sister loved the doll and played with it as often as she could. That was until she suddenly died of a cold. Her parents decided to keep the doll in their house as a shrine to their daughter. Robert The Doll One of the more famous dolls in the history of possessed objects is Robert The Doll. The doll served as the inspiration for the murderous doll Chuckey in the 1988 film Child's Play. While a knife wielding, homicidal doll sounds terrifying, the story behind the real doll is nowhere near as violent but is twice as unsettling. The doll first appeared in the late 19th century in the Otto family & the doll itself belonged to the future turn of the century painter, Robert Eugene Otto, who preferred the name Gene. The Otto family had hired a Haitian maid to look after Otto throughout the day, this was until Mrs. These have been just a few cursed dolls from around the world.

Subscribe to World5List http://goo.gl/cpJSA6 Find us on... -- http://www.boredbadger.com -- http://www.facebook.com/world5list X Hidden Places People discovered in their own homes When you’re buying a new house, it’s important to do a thorough check of the rooms and hallways, to make sure you know what you’re getting. Students in Ohio Living away from home for the first time as a student can be a marvelous experience, and the house that you and your friends find will certainly live in your memories. Reddit It’s important, when you get a new house, to explore all the nooks and crannies Peepholes A thorough inspection of a potential house might save you a lot of trouble… especially if you find something creepy. Message Not all of these hidden finds are evil and ominous. A couple that recently purchased a home in 2005 went on to do renovations and found a secret passageway behind a bookcase. Armed room It’s possible that your house’s previous owner left you treasures and gifts behind, and it’s also possible that they aren’t the presents you want to find. Student Basement Again, as a student it can be hard to find the perfect place, but you can probably do better than a place that can be labeled “creepily occupied”. Religious Sometimes, if you discover something creepy or odd in your house, there’s no rush to investigate. Houseguest A home is where you go to feel safe from the outside world, but sometimes the things you fear literally live in your walls. Attic Not all of the odd, secret rooms we found are in America.

Mt Ste Odile The monastery of Mount Sainte-Odile is located high in France’s Vosges Mountains, and is home to numerous priceless medieval books and manuscripts. Singer Castle If the New York Times dubs a place “The Castle of Mysteries”, it’s probably got some whacky secrets. Dunnerden If you spend enough time engineering imaginary secrets, your real life might well involve them. Dunnerden is the name of a home in Aspen, built by the software developer Doug Carlston.

9 Awesome Facts About Easter Island
Rapa Nui or Easter Island is a remote island with a lot of theories about the inhabitants, the statues and the past and history. Here are some facts about Easter Island. Subscribe to World5List http://goo.gl/cpJSA6 Find us on... -- http://www.boredbadger.com -- http://www.facebook.com/world5list When one thinks about adventure they think of places like Egypt with its pyramids shrouded in mystery, and while Egypt is fascinating there is another place just as fascinating and full of mystery. Join us as we look at some awesome facts about Easter Island! The Statues: Easter Island also known by its native name Rapa Nui is most famously known for the many large statues that reside on the island. These statues are known as Moai and are believed to have been carved by the Rapa Nui people somewhere between 1250 CE and 1500 CE. While at first it appears the statues only consist of giant heads, archaeologists dug deeper down and discovered bodies! Its Name: Easter Island got its nickname from Jacob Roggeveen. He was one of the first European visitors who were recorded to have been on the island, when he came it was on April 5, 1722 and that date was significant due to it being Easter Sunday, which is how Jacob decided to describe it, and the nickname stuck! How Statues were Moved: Nobody is sure how the statues on Easter Island were moved given that they were transported 11 miles across the island without using wheels, or other means of transport that would have been available at that time. A Theft of a Moai Ear It was in 2008 when a tourist was found on Anakena beach trying to remove an ear off of a moai. A native islander happened to see Marko Kulju 26 at the time running from the scene with a peace of a Moai in his hand. Islanders Toppled Statues! Easter Island went through a very rough period where it faced devastation in terms of deforestation. The Island has Its Own Language! Rongorongo is the official script of Easter Island. It is one of the few known scripts that was created with no influence from outside sources. The Island has a Cult! In the 17th and 18th centuries there were many issues with deforestation, and overworking of the land which depleted the natural resources. With this came many strong religious beliefs. The Island has its own Currency! Since Easter Island is a part of Chile it does use the currency of Chile which is a Chilean peso. However Easter Island also does have its own currency as well! In 2008 coins were created and in 2012 banknotes were created and named rongo. Easter Islands Weapons There are many native weapons to Easter Island, but they were very limited. Some known weapons were spears made out of obsidian, short clubs, and stones that were thrown.

10 Best Doomsday Shelters and Hideouts
10 unique doomsday shelters, hideouts, bunkers and structures people have built to protect against a catastrophic event or an apocalypse. Subscribe to World5List http://goo.gl/cpJSA6 Find us on... -- http://www.boredbadger.com -- http://www.facebook.com/world5list Best Doomsday Shelters We can't really ignore the fact for much longer—now, can we? The world is on the verge of a total apocalypse and some people have been preparing the best doomsday shelters the world may ever see. Let's check out some of these end of the world paradise bunkers because we might need a few ideas sooner than we thought: Wyoming Survival Ranch If you're not really a people-person and more so when the end of the world happens than why not splurge and spend approximately $1 million dollars on 104 acres in Johnstown, Wyoming. New York Missile Silo If you've always dreamed of having a missile silo of your very own to live in well now is as good a time as any! This particular New York gem cost $3 million dollars on the market, but it comes with quite a few doomsday essentials. Luxurious Underground Shelter in Indiana Who would have believed that one of the most luxurious and upscale doomsday shelters are located right in the Midwest? Las Vegas Doomsday Shelter If there's any place I could choose to spend my last days on Earth it would have to be Las Vegas—Sin City would be the place to have one last hoorah. Doomsday Castle in South Carolina There have been quite a few theories of what might happen to cause a doomsday, but it's this theory that sparked our interest to find a unique and uncommon bunker Underground Kansas Condos If you have to live out the apocalypse with a bunch of other people—than you might as well do it in style. These $2 million-dollar condos have been called the most luxurious way to sit out the apocalypse. The Global Seed Vault This is one of those things that if the movie Wall-E would have included it probably would have turned out a lot differently. Project Greek Island Leave it to the Washington Post to reveal the government actually had some pretty amazing secret bunkers they built themselves—in fact, they had 33 building complexes for top-secret intelligence work under construction or built in Washington, D.C. since September 2001. Bunker 42 Soviet Russia was a place shrouded in mystery so it's no real shock to hear they had a secret military complex, bunker and command post in Moscow, Russia near the underground Moscow Metro station.

5 Incredible Unexplained Ancient Mysteries

These discoveries have raised more questions than answers Subscribe to World5List http://goo.gl/cpJSA6 Find us on... -- http://www.boredbadger.com -- http://www.facebook.com/world5list Unexplained Ancient Mysteries Throughout our archaeological record some historians have been unable to Interpret or identify the origin of various artifacts, stories, and structures. Join us as we explore some of the most interesting Unexplained Mysteries from around the world. Mystery Of The Wisconsin Giants A 19th century archaeological study of burial grounds surrounding the city of Madison show that the state of Wisconsin might have produced something bigger than a few cheese heads. August 10th 1891 on the Smithsonian institution reported that it found several large burial mounds on the shores of Lake Mills. In the 50 years prior to the discovery many people who would settle the land have reported finding burial mounds all across the area. Chariots In The Clouds If you've been watching our videos for any length of time you know by now that we have a bit of a soft spot for extraterrestrials and unidentified flying objects. Why modern science has not provided us with any definitive proof that we have been visited by aliens ancient historical texts and hieroglyphics might suggest that we once lived alongside these Cosmic beings. Stone Spheres of Costa Rica Sometime in the 1940s workers for the United Fruit Company came across a strange find while harvesting fruit in the Costa Rican Forest. While sifting through the brush 1 worker noticed a giant perfectly rounded Stone ball sitting in the clearing. The workers knew that there were inhabitants on the island but they were unaware that they were in that specific location. Ancient Vehicle Tracks In Turkey This led many historians and scientists to speculate if a similar scenario had occurred once before many Millennia ago. Gate Of The Sun It seems most of the ancient Unexplained Mysteries have to do with scientist disbelief in the upper body strength of our ancestors. Once again we have a Multi-ton megalith found in an atypical location. This one is called La Puerta de Sol or the Gate of the Sun Which can be found Near Lake Titicaca in La Paz, Bolivia. Structure is a single piece of carve Stone in the shape of a doorway.

10 Prehistoric Creatures That Still Exist Today
Creatures that existed already millions of years ago and survived various eras still live on our planet. These prehistoric creatures are the oldest living species. Subscribe to World5List http://goo.gl/cpJSA6 Find us on... -- http://www.boredbadger.com -- http://www.facebook.com/world5list Prehistoric creatures that still exist Fossils are amazing finds, and they let us take a look at what life used to be like… some of them, though, are still alive and breathing today. Coming up… colossal stingrays, hideous sharks, ancient crustaceans and more. Join us as we take a look at some of the oldest prehistoric creatures that still exist today! Giant Salamander This list is comprised of creatures that, for one reason or another, were able to last the test of ages with their unique evolutionary behavior, but this one is a little more confusing. The giant salamander is the largest amphibian in the world, and it lives in China. Giant Stingray Camouflage is a unique and interesting survival tactic that works for species across almost all walks of life, and the most successful hunters have used this tactic to survive for millions of years. Lamprey While a lot of these creatures look odd, some can be downright terrifying. The lamprey is one of the older living fossils, having its ancestors date back a whopping three hundred and sixty million years. Goblin Shark On the topic of horrifying prehistoric monsters, if you’re named after a fantasy villain, odds are good that you’re not a beauty queen. The goblin shark is a beast of the deep, dark seas, and if you looked the way it does, you might prefer a lightless world, too. Alligator Gar Not all of these living fossils are at the bottom of the sea, or off of mysterious coasts. Some live right in the heart of the USA. The alligator gar is a colossal fish that lives in freshwater lakes and rivers in North America. Solenodon It’s important to remember that not all prehistoric creatures are horrendously ugly. The Solenodon is comparatively cute. It’s a venomous burrowing mammal that looks a lot like a large shrew, and it lives on islands in the Caribbean. Ant Insects are found all over the planet, and have been roaming on the ground and in trees for hundreds of millions of years. Pelican The ability to grab and hold your prey has been developed by countless creatures in many unique ways, but once an animal can do it, they tend not to change that much. Horseshoe Crab Most of these prehistoric creatures appear pretty ancient, but this one really looks the part. The horseshoe crab is one of the oldest living creatures still in existence today. They live in shallow ocean waters and come to shore to breed. Sea Sponge Some creatures are so old that it’s incredibly difficult to determine… well, just how old they are. Sea sponges have been around for longer than we know, and are a unique group of animals that have adapted to all manner of sea living.

Giant Creatures That Existed Millions Of Years Ago
Check out these giant creatures that existed million of years ago! From the biggest prehistoric animals to gigantic mysterious creatures that once roamed the earth, this top 10 list of large animals is amazing!

The ‘SuperCroc’ In Niger in 1997, scientists discovered the remains of a crocodile-like creature with a jaw bone the length of an average adult human. Sarcosuchus imperator, better known by its nickname ‘the SuperCroc,’ was twice the length and four times the weight of today’s biggest crocodiles. These massive predators grew to be as long as twelve meters and weighed up to eight tons. 6. Metoposaurus Reptiles and dinosaurs weren’t the only gargantuan creatures that existed in the prehistoric world. The metoposaurus was an early amphibian, and much like the ‘SuperCroc,’ it was much bigger than what we’re used to in modern times. It resembled a giant salamander, growing up to three meters in length, and subsisted on a carnivorous diet. 5. Terror Birds Terror birds, more formally known as phorusrhacids, were a group of large, carnivorous, flightless birds. They stood up to three meters tall and could run as fast as fifty kilometers per hour. With downward-pointed beaks that worked like a pick, terror birds were capable of crushing the skulls and vertebrae of their prey when using maximum force, often causing instant paralysis or death. 4. Cow sharks Most modern-day sharks, including nurse sharks and great whites, have five gill slits on each side of their body. There are, however, some exceptions to the norm. Cow sharks possess six or seven gills, a trait that goes back millions of years, to the earliest sharks. Considered to be the most archaic of shark species, these seldom-spotted six- and seven-gilled sharks are deepwater fish. 3. Aegirocassis benmoulae Picture a hybrid between a whale and a lobster. It might look something like Aegirocassis benmoulae, a species that was first discovered in Morocco in 2011 by a man named Ben Moula. This creature belonged to an extinct family of marine animals known as anomalocaridids and grew up to two meters in length (seven feet). A. benmoulae lived in the waters of southeastern Morocco around 480 million years ago, during the early Ordovician Period. 2. Giant Sea Scorpions Throughout prehistoric times, there existed a variety of large sea scorpions unlike anything the modern human has ever witnessed. Jaekelopterus rhenaniae bears the title of the largest arthropod that ever existed. It lived about 390 million years ago, during the Early Devonian period, and reached up to two-and-a-half meters in length, with spiked claws that grew as big as 46 centimeters. 1. Megalodon Sharks While nobody is quite sure exactly how big the Megalodon could get, one thing is for sure: these ancient sharks were far bigger than any that currently exist. Cartilage does not fossilize well, meaning that scientists have only been able to rely on teeth and small pieces of vertebrae. Estimates of the Megalodon’s size put it between 16 and 20 meters long. To give you an idea, the biggest fish currently in existence is the whale shark, which reaches up to 12.6 meters in length.

7 Creepy Places You NEVER Want To Visit
Our world is home to some really dangerous places where tourists should not go and visit because not every destination is a tourist paradise. Subscribe to World5List http://goo.gl/cpJSA6 Find us on... -- http://www.boredbadger.com -- http://www.facebook.com/world5list Places You Never Want to Visit As Melisandre of Game of Thrones once said: "The night is dark and full of terrors", but as you watch this video we'll change that phrase to the world is dark and full of terrors. Sit back, relax and promise to never venture to any of these places you never want to visit because you might get more than you bargained for. North Sentinel Island: India The Northern Sentinel Island has remained almost completely remote from the outside world where it's believe the tribes of the Andaman Islands—the Jarawa, Great Andamanese, Onge and Sentinelese have lived for almost 55,000 years. The Great Pacific Garbage Patch You know that saying speak no evil, hear no evil and see no evil—well, that's not necessarily the case with the massive amount of trash that ends up in the ocean landing in what we now refer to as The Great Pacific Garbage Patch. It's likely that if you ever end up anywhere near this trash pile you may be shocked to discover that humans created a disgusting wasteland of filth in the middle of the ocean. Edinburgh Vaults: Scotland Edinburgh is a city rich in both history and superstition—which is why it was no wonder that when the newly completed South Bridge began to experience flooding in the chambers people believed it to be cursed, refusing to even use the bridge. Snake Island: Brazil Unless you're interested in the study of Ophiology, a branch of herpetology that specializes in the study of snakes and ophidians you probably never want to step foot on Snake Island. As the name suggests is full of deadly, venomous snakes and off-limits to humans—it was rumored that there are between one and five snakes for every meter. Overtoun Bridge: Milton, Scotland If you like your furry four-legged friend you probably want to steer clear of the Overtoun Bridge in the village of Milton, Scotland. This strange bridge hasn't caused humans to jump to their deaths but it's caused hundreds of man's best friend to leap off of it. It's become such a nuisance in fact that there is now a sign that reads: "Dangerous bridge—keep your dog on a lead." At least 50 dogs in the past 50 years have jumped from the bridge—strangely enough both jumping and landing in almost the same spot, always jumping off the same side of the bridge. Surtsey, Iceland Sursey Island off of the coast of Iceland was formed after a volcanic eruption took place from 1963 to 1967—and then a smaller island was also formed nearby just a few months but was washed away by wave erosion. Wave erosion still diminishes the larger island, but it won't entirely cause the island to disappear—if you're curious and want to visit the island though it's probably not recommended since you never know when the next eruption might take place.

And before you say no way, this actually really happened. In 2013, Kevin Barrera’s father randomly found the aerial shot of police standing around his dead son’s body close to the train tracks. This was by far one of the biggest Google Earth mishaps, however, there were also times when people reported a murder than never actually happened. Have you heard of the mysterios case of a dragged body on the bridge? That’s right - they were the footprints of a gigantic hound! And then there’s the giant rabbit that can be seen from space. Wait, wait, wait, wait, what? If you’re planning on visiting, do it in the next 9 years - it is planned to stay there until 2025. Here’s a quote from one of the creators:'We like to see hikers climb up the bunny's 20ft sides and relax on his belly.' You’ve heard of the mysterious Atlantis before, right? When Google Earth launched a pretty detailed oceanic version, the odd sighting of a grid map in the middle of the ocean sparked quite a controversy. In 2009, the overlapping datasets made it seem like Google accidentally found Atlantis and the Internet went absolutely insane. Before you dig into this a little bit deeper, we should warn you that the image was removed in 2012 in order to stop misinforming the users. Google reported that Atlantis has yet to be found and explained that it was all just an unfortunate data miscommunication. Hmmmm, is this really true or is Google trying to hide something? That’s not even the end of bizarre encounters with Google Earth oceans. In 2016, the Internet went once again crazy as they discovered a sea monster close to the Deception Island - no, really, it’s called Deception Island. No one quite knows the real reason behind this image and whether it was just a set up or a coincidental thing, these pigeonheads will give you the creeps like nothing else. A Reddit user spotted 7 people with pigeon masks, creepily staring into the Google camera. ' Speaking of creepy, next on our list are dolls of dead people, randomly placed along the main road. But who makes these dolls? A lady called Tsukimi, who got the idea after she created a scarecrow in the memory of her father. If that didn’t take a weird turn and make you go aww, we’re not sure what else will. Moving onto something even more mind boggling is the discovery of a huge swastika in colorado… and its one government ground. So what’s this Google Maps crime talk, you ask? There were numerous times when Google was a witness to some pretty horrible stuff, but here are just some you’ve probably never heard of before. A man on a porch pointed his gun at the Google Maps driver in Detroit. Although the gun is now blurred from the maps, the story behind it remains. In the Netherlands, two men stole a 14 year old boy’s bike, phone and wallet. The thieves were twin brothers, later recognized by the police and sent to jail. Justice has been served, thanks to Google Maps. The next person didn’t have such luck. In 2014, a woman spotted two men that were responsible for robbing her house and holding her at gunpoint 3 years earlier. What? How is that even possible? It turns out she was just randomly looking through her neighborhood. The men haven’t been caught yet but it’s safe to say this might’ve brought some unpleasant memories to the woman.

Most Awesome Recent Scientific Discoveries
Recently a lot of awesome scientific things have been discovered. Let’s take a look at the unbelievable scientific discoveries of 2016. Subscribe to World5List http://goo.gl/cpJSA6 Find us on... -- http://www.boredbadger.com -- http://www.facebook.com/world5list 2016 has been a particularly busy year for science. In this year alone, we’ve made significant progress in many discoveries. It all started in January 2016 - precisely on January 1st in Malibu, California. Researchers from HRL Laboratories achieved a breakthrough in ceramic 3D printing tecnology and took 3D printing to a whole another level. Alright, what’s next on the list? January was also the month where scientists made people question their New Year resolution dietary choices by discovering a new enzyme called G3PP which prevents sugar being stored as fat. Also known as the ‘detox enzyme,’, G3PP can be found in all types of body tissue and it seems to be able to regulate the conversion of glucoes and fats and the production of energy. January 2016 was also the month of first head transplants being successfully carried out on a monkey by Chinese scientists. Sure, it might seem bizarre, but this is really a significant progress for neuro science. We’ve also discovered a ninth planet! And no, Pluto’s still not back in the game. While the space enthusiasts still mourn the loss of Pluto, California Institute of Technology kept busy and discovered evidence of a ninth planet which is orbiting the sun every 15,000 years. February’s discovery was slightly different - the University of Southampton announced a revolutionary step toward creating 5D data storage which can survive for billions of years. So what does this mean exactly? March marked the discovery of the most remote galaxy ever detected, called GN-z11. This fascinating galaxy is 13.4 billion light years away and "very close to the end of the so-called Dark Ages of the universe" - no, this is not sarcasm, this is the actual report. Heading into April, NASA astronomers discovered an asteroid called HO3 2016, orbiting around the sun and the Earth. Scientists refer to it as the “quasi-satellite of Earth” as it appears to be quite locked into its pathway around the Eart and is 9 million miles away. If you’re ever complaining about your slow computer, this one’s for you - June marked the discovery of the world’s fastest supercomputer. Called Sunway TaihuLight, this absolutely massive system claims to be the world’s fastest computer. Depression is still a big mystery in the medical world but in August 2016, researchers made significant progress when it comes to defining genes associated with depression. Ever wondered what is the longest living vertebrate animal on Earth? August 2016, researchers revealed it is the Greenland shark, found to be capable of living nearly 400 years. Fascinated about meteorites? The next discovery will blow you away - in September, we have discovered the second largest meteorite ever found, located in Argentina. In an extremely interesting September discovery, all non-african humans currently alive on Earth can be easily traced into a single group that exited Africa about 50,000 years ago September seemed to be quite an eventful month for science, huh? In baby news, a first mitochondrial donation baby was born in the UK. Ever heard of the three-parent technique? Here’s one for caffeine addicts - next time someone gives you crap about your caffeine consumption, tell them this: on October 3rd 2016, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee found that caffeine consumption might reduce the risk of dementia in women by whooping 36 percent. Ever wanted to see what a functioning brain looks like in real life? Done for the first time ever by the scientists at the Rockefeller University who used a technique called light sculpting to see real life neurons of a mouse brain in 3-D. And we’re nearing the end of the year - in December, UC Berkley designed one of the coolest robots we’ve ever seen. Known by the name of Salto, researchers managed to designed a robot that can literally do parkour and impressive acrobatics. Now hold up, we’re not done yet. Possibly the cutest discovery award of 2016 goes to the Googly Eyed Stubbly Squid, found by the Researchers from the Nautilus exploration vessel somewhere off the California coast.

Mysterious Secrets Of Area 51
Area 51 has always been surrounded my mystery and by secrets. What is the government hiding at area 51? Aliens, UFO's, secret documents?! Subscribe to World5List http://goo.gl/cpJSA6 Find us on... -- http://www.boredbadger.com -- http://www.facebook.com/world5list Mysterious locations, forbidden signs, a base set in the middle of nowhere censored on Google Earth and tons of signs pointing to the possibility of an extraterrestrial life. Area 51 has been a subject of discussion for years and many have attempted to find out the secrets that lie behind the closed base doors. The name behind Area 51 The name ‘Area 51’ derives from its marking on 1950’s Nevada Test Site maps. That’s really all there is to it. Nothing special, right? Well, these four letters and two digits have managed to shake up even those who don’t easliy give into conspiracy theories. The consequences of crossing the Area 51 borders By crossing the restricted borders of Area 51, people can get punished in various ways, but one of the most common fines is a fee of around 600 dollars on average, depending on your intentions. Area 51 was the A12 Oxcart testing site One of the things we do know about Area 51 is that it was chosen as the testing site for the A-12 oxcart. In simplified english, the A-12 Oxcart is the world’s first titanium spy plane that flew at 2200 miles per hour, which meant that the plane could cross the continental US in just 70 minutes. One of the now well known secrets of Area 51 is its artillery and bombing place known as the Groom Lake - the dry lake the area was built around. After the World War II, the area became abandoned for a decade and then used as a testing facility for the spy plane. Among others, the site was also used for the F-117 program which tested the F117 planes, managed by the first class of frontline pilots. Alright, alright, let’s get to the good stuff. It’s time to talk aliens It’s no secret that probably everyone who’s ever heard of Area 51 associates it with extraterrestrial life. From the Extraterrestrial Highway to the alien themed hotel and testimonials by many ex employees. Ex Area 51 employees and their testimonies It’s debatable whether the activities of Area 51 are really off limits. Over the years, many former employees came forward and shared their stories on what’s actually happening in Area 51. Dr Boyd Bushman, an ex Area 51 scientist claims that aliens are real and friendly and that there is a group that works with aliens for 24 hours a day. The White House’s response to Area 51 conspiracy In 2011, The White House was forced to release a response to the two petitions signed by the public that demanded the acknowledgement that aliens have visited Earth, and urged to disclose any withholding of government interactions with extraterrestrial beings. This was their official response.

10 BIGGEST Underwater Creatures In The world!
Check out the 10 biggest underwater creatures in the world! This top 10 list of mysterious deep sea monsters has some of the biggest and most bizarre animals that were ever found! Subscribe to World5List: http://goo.gl/cpJSA6 Check out our "13 Amazing Pets Who Saved Their Owners" video at: https://youtu.be/bMwLm16_Q-0 Check out our "7 Celebrities Who Gave Their Kids Up For Adoption" video at: https://youtu.be/vVrlJFZ8sME 10. Japanese Spider Crab For starters, let's think about some sea creatures you'd see on or near a beach. What's the first thing you see? For me, it's a crab. They're always wandering around, and if you're not careful, you can step on one, and you'll regret it...trust me on that. 9. Giant Clams When you hear those words, "Giant Clams", you likely think about a movie you've seen, or a TV show that exaggerated the massive size of these clams. I'm curious though, which one was it for you? 8. Portuguese Man-Of-War The sea is truly full of wonders, and because of that, we're still trying to learn all the secrets that it holds. Take, for example, the Portuguese Man-Of-War. When you look at it, what species of animal do you think it is? A jellyfish? A good guess, but that's actually incorrect. In fact, the Portuguese Man-Of-War is a collection of organisms that work together to move and act. 7. Ocean Sunfish Sticking with the "oddities" portion of the ocean, let's talk about the Ocean Sunfish. This creature is affectionately known as the "Swimming Head". Can you guess why? That's right, it's because it doesn't have a tail. If you look closely at it, you'll see that it's literal all rigid, save for its mouth of course. 6. Giant Squid Whether on the land, in the air, or in the ocean, there are tales of massive creatures that roam the waters and have caused havoc for humans that have gotten in their way. The Giant Squid is most certainly one of them. In fact, many feel that the Giant Squid is the basis for the legend of the Kraken, which is understandable given how massive these creatures are. 5. Basking Shark Sharks are famous, and notorious for being some of the most vicious and aggressive creatures within the ocean. So it might just surprise you to learn that the Basking Shark is not only the second-largest fish within the ocean itself, but it's also one of most gentle sharks in the water. That sounds like an oxymoron, doesn't it? 4. Whale Shark So, if the Basking Shark is the second-largest fish in the sea, what's the first? Well, that would be the Whale Shark, another creature that sounds like an oxymoron, yet this time works out when you think about it. After all, whales are massive, and this one definitely qualifies. True, it's shark nature is downplayed, just like the Basking Shark, but if we're focusing on size, this is one creature that lives up to the name both times. 3. Oarfish Speaking of wonders, let's talk about one that is so mysterious, so odd, and so rarely seen that when it first was taken in a picture, people actually thought of as a hoax. We speak of the Oarfish. This is a large fish that is actually the largest "bony fish" alive. In fact, the largest one found was 36 feet long. 2. Blue Whale So, we've already talked about the biggest fishes in the sea, but when it comes to mammals, there is only one candidate, the Blue Whale. In fact, the Blue Whale is so huge, that it dwarfs many man-made creations. This is a creature that is nearly 110 feet long! That's basically an 11-story building, and it probably weighs as much as that building, if not more! 1. Lion's Mane Jellyfish When we talked about the Portuguese Man-O-War, we noted that its tentacles reached at their peak 135 feet long. But noted that this was a rarity. In contrast, the Lion's Mane Jellyfish averages a tentacle length of 120 feet. And that's not including their bodies. Which means that the tentacles alone are bigger than the biggest creature in the sea via the Blue Whale.

9 Dark NASA Secrets
A lot of conspiracy theories claim that NASA is hiding some important facts about their agency. Like almost everyone NASA does also have some hidden secrets. Subscribe to World5List http://goo.gl/cpJSA6 Find us on... -- http://www.boredbadger.com -- http://www.facebook.com/world5list Conspiracy theorists have for years been questioning if NASA is hiding things from citizens—although they have the best Public Relations teams to debunk most theories there are quite a few mysteries that have slipped through the cracks. We'll take a look at some of those dark NASA secrets that didn't quite get swept under the rug. If you enjoy the dark and twisted world that we're about to uncover, subscribe to us for even more interesting and informative videos! The Apollo 11 Missing Tapes Everyone that has learned anything about space knows about the Apollo 11 mission where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were the first two humans to land on the moon. It took place on July 20, 1969 and had people everywhere rejoicing with glee because the Americans had just narrowly beat Russia and other countries from achieving what at the time seemed entirely impossible. Apollo Astronauts Denied Insurance As is expected with any astronaut about to embark on the most dangerous mission known to man—life insurance wasn't going to be cheap. All of the astronauts also had a family to think about after their mission to the moon and there was no guarantee that they would make it back alive. The Apollo 11 astronauts had a pretty ingenious plan up their sleeve though to get by without life insurance—signing autographs. By the time, the mission was announced the crew was already famous, and they knew that autographs would be worth a hefty sum. NASA Removes UFOs from Photos It's an age-old conspiracy that NASA has mysterious files and photos on Unidentified Flying Objects and extraterrestrial life—now, we're no experts but there are so many interviews with former NASA employees floating around that we may start to believe the impossible. James Webb Space Telescope The Hubble Space Telescope now has a predecessor called the James Webb Space Telescope, the new version took nearly 20 years to complete, billions of dollars and a fierce political battle to complete the project. It has people wondering if it was worth it, and if it was then why did a large part of the telescope's project plans get hidden from public knowledge until now? Astronauts Internal Struggle Being an astronaut is not an easy job—if you want to enter into this lucrative career expect some fierce competition. It's estimated that you'll have a .08 percent chance of selection during the grueling process. Even though our parents like to tell us that we can be whatever we want to be when we grow up; they probably should have warned us that an astronaut might not be in our foreseeable future. We're more likely to get to be the first humans to live on Mars than to be chosen as an astronaut for space exploration. NASA Is Still a Boys Club With the release of the movie Hidden Figures it was widely recognized that NASA is and was a career that mostly men only chose to pursue. Hidden Figures tells the story of three African-American women that were known as the human "computers" behind the successful space missions of Neil Armstrong, Alan Shepard and John Glenn to travel safely to space. Whale Oil Powered Hubble Space Telescope NASA has attempted to quiet the rumors that the Hubble Space Telescope required whale oil to be powered—it wouldn't be such a far-fetched claim since the oil can withstand below freezing temperatures and could tolerate the harsh conditions of space better than anything that would have been produced in the years when the satellite was first conceptualized. NASA Involvement in Operation Paperclip After World War II, the world was a bit of a murky place as many Nazis had slipped through the cracks of justice. It was no different in the scientific community as they could easily blend in anywhere and change their name but with the CIA's covert operation called "Operation Paperclip" 1,600 German became part of our US space, military and technology program with these scientists. Stolen Moon Rocks This secret moon rock heist was a bit strange but sometimes people will do anything to make a little extra cash on the side. Three interns at the space station decided it would be a brilliant idea to steal the moon rocks from the Apollo mission that had been stored away for years in a safe in the Johnson Space Center. Are there any secrets that you think should have been worthy of this list? If so, comment and tell us about them in the comments below! If these dark NASA secrets blew your mind just wait and see what kinds of other universes you'll discover by subscribing to our channel! We hope you enjoyed and thank you for watching, join us next time as we discover other mysterious and strange secrets happening right here on our planet—no space exploration necessary.
