"A Texas family has fled their home after finding some.. unnerving things in their daily family videos. The videos were being uploaded to YouTube and subscribers were pointing out a being or creature in almost every single family video. These are just two screenshots of the creepiest sightings, out of the many videos. The family has been blurred to protect their privacy."
THE WYOMING INCIDENT
The Wyoming Incident (or The Wyoming Hijacking) is a lesser known case of television broadcast hacking. A hacker managed to interrupt broadcasts from a local programming channel and aired his/her own video.
The video contained numerous clips of disembodied, human heads showing various emotions and “poses.” and contained a couple of messages some of which are displayed here.
The video had effects on the viewers.
Complaints included vomiting, hallucinations, headaches, etc. Specialists have determined that the cause were frequencies played regularly throughout the broadcast.
In this clip, the frequency being played is somewhere between 17 and 19 hz. This range of frequency, when played for long periods of time, causes the eyes to subtly vibrate, sometimes inducing visual hallucinations.
You can watch the video (if you dare) here: X
As said in the description the video:These videos were part of an “alternate-reality game” created by the folks at SomethingAwful, and they were about a fictional television broadcast signal hijacking akin to the real Max Headroom Pirating Incident in 1987.

Woman with severe osteomalacia - Osteomalacia is the softening of the bones caused by defective bone mineralization secondary to inadequate amounts of available phosphorus and calcium, or because of overactive resorption of calcium from the bone as a result of hyperparathyroidism.
Resurrection Mary -
One of Chicago’s most famous and often sighted ghosts. Resurrection Mary is a beautiful blonde, blue-eyed girl dressed in a white dress, white dancing shoes and a thin shawl, and sometimes clutching an evening bag. She is named after Resurrection Cemetery where she is supposed to be buried. She appears on the road and sometimes asks for a ride, before vanishing when the car reaches the cemetery.
Sightings of Mary go back as far as 1936. According to legend, Mary was killed in a car accident on a winter night in 1934 after an evening of dancing. She got into an argument with her date at the dance, left the ballroom and began walking home. She was struck by a car and killed. The driver left the scene and was never found. Her parents buried her at Resurrection Cemetery in her white dress and dancing shoes.
Many drivers have offered Mary a lift over the years. In most cases she gets into the car, talks to the driver as though she were a normal girl but promptly vanishes when the car passes the cemetery. In other cases she will ask for a lift to the cemetery and the driver is unaware that she is a ghost until she gets out of the car and disappears through the locked cemetery gates. She has also been see staring through the bars of the gates. Other motorists have reported hitting a girl in a white dress who suddenly ran out in front of their car. Sometimes the car passes through her and on other occasions they have thought that they have hit her and the body vanishes when they call for help.
She has been reported dancing at the old ballroom that she left on the night of her accident until closing time before asking someone for a ride to the cemetery. Those who say that they have danced with Mary describe her as aloof and cold to the touch.
In 1976, a man was driving past the cemetery late at night when he saw a young woman in a white dress standing inside the gates of the cemetery clasping the bars. The man reported to the police that someone was locked inside the cemetery. Officers who investigated found no one inside, however, two of the iron bars of the gate where the girl had been standing where found pried apart and bore what looked like human handprints seared into the metal.
The “Cervine Birth” video is most likely a hoax, as the only source that really has any information on it is Creepypasta (and we all know the stories there are real), but I found the ‘audio’ from it and decided to share because it’s pretty creepy and right up my alley.
The story of the video goes that in 2009, an amateur filmmaker uploaded a video to Youtube that opens up on a foggy field, then zooms onto a white figure that turns out to be an albino deer lying on the ground. The deer stares into a mirror, then the deer in the reflection begins convulsing in an unnatural way. The real deer is still lying on the ground. The real deer then secretes a black substance from under its tail, and it then gives birth to a still, human-like creature covered in the dark tar. A close-up of its face is shown for a second before the film cuts back to the mirror, now broken.
Anyway, the audio is cool and the video probably never existed but it’s a really creepy concept and I love it.
