    I felt the same way. I mean, it startled me a tiny bit, but that was about it.

    Well umm, *spoiler* I guess!

    I was sat in a dark room with my headphones on full when I checked it out, and had never previously been informed of the idea that comics could suddenly animate in front of your face and blare a horrible noise in your ear.

    Like looking at a painting of a cow and hearing it moo, except completely unlike that. haha

    Apparently there are these sounds that people are hearing all over the world from "the sky" and they are now calling it "UAO" - unidentified audible objects - and that they only just started this year.

    This is a montage of some example videos

    This blog has been following and debunking / exploring a lot of them.

    Some people are likening it to the sounds of the trumpets of the apocalypse. Or something.

    That video creeped me out! Now I'm going to be paranoid when I go outside...

    Four things I think it could be... 1) it could be the trumpets (of the apocalypse) or 2) (I hate to be all NIN fan about it) it could be the Presence (although it's not showing up visually yet) or 3) Massive shifts in atmospheric pressure change in high altitude or 4) Government(s) conspiracy.

    I've been keeping an eye on that topic lately and getting super creeped out by it in the process.

    I like this video.



    A later news article says it was speaker feedback.

    I caught up on this subject a few days ago too, if it's legit it's very creepy and awesome at the same time. But I have a feeling that at least some of the videos (in general, not necessarily the ones you posted) are bullshit, in one video the sounds heard are very clearly the blaring of the Tripods from Spielberg's War of the Worlds. Is there a way to tell if a sound has been added in a video artificially?

    EDIT: The blog you linked to is very helpful, it appears that some of the videos are definitely fake, in that they have the exact sounds (blaring, birds, background noises and all) as others. But there also genuine videos for sure. Some of the rumbles/hummings/whistling sounds seem undisputable, the question is what is causing them. Right now, my money is on atmospheric, electromagnetic phenomena. Similar occurances have been recorded as far back as mid-19th century. One person in the blog commented that in that period of the 19th century, the largest solar flare ever recorded had occured (Carrington super flare). Whatever the cause, the sounds are creepy as hell.

    Ditto. I remember the stories kind of creeped me out, but the pictures scared the shit out of me when I read them under the covers with a flashlight at night.

    This video is by far one of the freakiest "sounds from the sky" videos out there. It's like a scene from a David Lynch film.

    Holy shit...it just hit me. This is exactly like what I noticed before bed about a week ago. I live about two miles from a small airport (no jets, just small planes), and chalked it up as air traffic...until I realized that it was drawing out a lot longer than any plane I'd heard here before, and without seeming to change distance. I creeped me out a bit that night, but I honestly hadn't thought about it again until now.

    Oh man those Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark books freaked me out as a kid. The one where the guy's in the back seat of the woman's car, and you think the guy following her in his car flashing his headlights on is the killer, but he was just flashing them on every time the guy in the backseat of her car would rise up to stab her, just to scare him back down....wigged the hell outta me.

    Haha I saw that game live, and about 150 other Rays games this past season. The sound is the wind. Tropicana Field is the last indoor baseball stadium (some have retractable roofs now) and when it storms, which is quite frequently in St. Pete, then wind can get to sounding pretty crazy.
    Oh and Rays to win the World Series in 2012

    I love the real short ones like that. Since I haven't lived with my parents in years (and never in a two story house), that one in particular doesn't really get under my skin. But it is kind of spooky to imagine that scenario.

    I lived in an old house that had me convinced it was haunted. Similar to the "mom downstairs" I recall my wife yelling at our daughter to go to bed after seeing her cross the computer room down the hall. At that very moment her older sister was standing with us and said "um, mom she's already in bed, that wasn't her". We'd occasionally see/hear other odd stuff since then until we called the landlord and asked if they ever heard reports of odd stuff in the house. The landlord got instantly defensive asking "What what did you see? It's all been reported as benign and never malevolent. Have you told anyone else?" Right then I knew this was more than a bunch of weird coincidences.

    I meant to look for those when I went home for Easter last week, and completely forgot. Decided to take a back road on my way home from my Saturday bagel walk, and found the first and third books - with the original artwork - at a garage sale for ten cents each. These are going to stay in my bunk when I go back out on tour. Can't wait to read these in the dim light in a small bunk out on rural highways in the middle of the night.

    My grandpa used to tell me about this when I was a kid and we were camping in the woods. Nice, huh? Gotta love local legends.

    Thanks to these clips, I'm inspired to fire up Netflix and watch this for the first time since the original airing.



    This episode scared the fuck out of me, my brother, and my mom when we watched it that night.

    A few years ago, a mother and father decided they needed a break, so they wanted to head out for a night on the town. They called their most trusted babysitter. When the babysitter arrived, the two children were already fast asleep in bed. So the babysitter just got to sit around and make sure everything was okay with the children.

    Later that night, the babysitter got bored and went to watch TV, but she couldn’t watch it downstairs because they did not have cable downstairs (the parents didn’t want children watching too much garbage). So, she called them and asked them if she could watch cable in the parent’s room. Of course, the parents said it was ok, but the babysitter had one final request… she asked if she could cover up the angel statue outside the bedroom window with a blanket or cloth, at the very least close the blinds, because it made her nervous.

    The phone line was silent for a moment, and the father who was talking to the babysitter at the time said, “Take the children and get out of the house… we will call the police. We do not have an angel statue.”
    The police found all three of the house occupants dead within three minutes of the call. No angel statue was ever found.

    Has anyone ever heard of the Eridanus Supervoid? It's a hole in the universe that was discovered in 2007, with absolutely nothing it it. No planets, no stars, no dark energy, nothing. It's bigger than any other known hole in the observable universe. At one billion light years wide, and nobody has any concrete idea what caused it (because it shouldn't exist according to what we know about the creation of the universe being relatively uniform) or what it's doing there.

    One billion lightyears wide is inconceivably massive, see. And there's nothing in it.

    The best explanation anyone has right now is that it's a super-super massive black hole, sitting there in space, munching on entire galaxies. Here's a picture, it's crappy but can help you get an idea of the scale involved.
