Is It A Wall Or A River? Internet Debates Another Optical Illusion

(PCM) Everyone is wrapped up in yet another internet photo debate over whether or not this image of a picnic in Germany shows a wall or a river in the background. It was posted in a German Facebook group and the debate has commenced.

The internet folks love a good optical illusion, as you can recall both The Dress, The Underwater Or Jumping In and the Girl with the Missing Leg photos left us pretty baffled! Usually they end up being fairly easy to figure out, but this one is really getting to us!

We are kind of leaning towards a river because the wooden planks look like they could be part of a dock of some sort on the left hand side of the image, however the rest of the background really does resemble a wall.

What do you think? Let’s hope some super internet sleuths hop on this case quickly and let us know once and for all just what in the world we are looking at and in the meantime, can we hop on in there and join the party!

Mystery Of The South Carolina ‘Nightmare House’ Is Unraveled

(PCM) We recently shared the story about the mysterious South Carolina Zillow listing for a home that was being dubbed the “nightmare house” due to the fact that no one was supposed to ask questions about the secret tenant that resided in home’s upstairs apartment.

This led to much speculation with some wondering if the so-called tenant, who wasn’t required to pay any rent and was not to be disturbed, was actually a ghost or some kind of evil spirit. Well, it turns out the first HotPad listing was correct and the tenant is indeed a professional artist, by the name of Randall McKissick.

70-year old McKissick was once a world-renowned artist who has since fallen on hard times. He suffered a divorce, an eviction and an anxiety disorder. His work was shown at galleries all over the world, but since the dawn of the digital age, McKissick found his work could not keep up with the growing technology.

McKissick was childhood friends with the homes owner Michael Schumpert Sr, who allowed him to reside in the apartment upstairs rent free to help him get back on his feet. Schumpert Sr. got into a car accident back in December of 2016 and suffered a broken back, it was actually Schumpert’s son Michael who penned the ad trying to sell the home, as they don’t know what else to do and do not want Randall to have to leave.

Well, for starters, he could have made it a little less creepy sounding and of course everyone knows once the internet becomes involved, nothing stays secret for very long! The house has since been taken off the market and Michael claims he does not know what the plan is next.

The family is looking into alternative home options for McKissick, but money is a bit of an issue and he comes along with three cats. His anxiety disorder also makes it very difficult for him to deal with change. For now it looks like McKissick is staying put until the Schumpert family can figure out what to do, and he told the News & Observer, the publication who first uncovered his identity, that he would love to paint again, but he just has to find that spark!

Mystery Creature Washes Up On The Shores Of Indonesia

(PCM) Locals in Indonesia were shocked when the bloody and gooey carcass of some sort of mystery marine creature washed up on the shores of Seram Island. It is pretty terrifying to look at and not something one should view if you have a weak stomach.

Just how the mystery creature, which Indonesia’s Marine and Coastal Resources Management team is saying could possible be the carcass of a humpback whale, came to wash up on the small island remains a mystery, as well as, it’s cause of death.

A team of marine biologists are working on testing samples and getting the mess cleaned up, however they believe the creature may have been brought to the area due to the warm current, as it is not an animal that is native to the region.

The creature is also baffling other marine biologists across the globe, as many are curious as to what type of animal the creature actually is and some feel it may be a very large species of dolphin rather than a humpback whale.

The Indonesian government is also assisting with clean-up efforts. Whatever the creature turns out to be, it is definitely a rare species and, to us, looks like something straight out of a sci-fi flick! Yuck!

The Longer You Stare At This Image The Creepier It Becomes!

Photo credit: Jeff Lee Johnson

(PCM) An artist by the name of Jeff Lee Johnson was recently commissioned to illustrate a rule book for a Fantasy Flight card game and one of his pieces titled “Blue Plate Special” is going viral due to all of it’s subtle nods to outright gore.

Seriously … the more you stare at this image the more it engrosses you and the creepier it becomes overall. You suddenly begin to notice all of the horror elements tossed into the image which at first glance appears to be nothing more than an innocent diner scene!

Folks on Reddit and IMGUR have been having a field day picking out all of the gory references pictured in the image. A full list can be found below:

The blind man is eating an eyeball.
The knife is bleeding onto the pie.
The woman has a tentacle.
There’s a tentacle under the stool.
There’s a tentacle-monster under the counter (there’s a lot of tentacle stuff).
One of the men at the counter has a mosquito face.
The bloody hand print on the window.
The scratch marks (or gills) on the blind man’s neck.
The skull in the coffee cup.
Everything on the menu costs 15 (truly terrifying).
The notebook has the word tentacles written in it.
Everything’s tilted, and the people may be losing their balance.
The blind man is reading the paper.

Can you find any other references? Be sure to leave us a comment and let us know what you think and check out some of Jeff Lee Johnson’s other work here!

Mysterious Zillow Listing For South Carolina ‘Nightmare House’ Leaves Everyone Wondering!

(PCM) A Zillow listing for a home in Cayce, South Carolina has everyone talking after it was shared via Twitter by user @valhallabckgirl who called it a “nightmare house” and after looking at the listing we can certainly see what she means! It really does look like something straight out of a horror film.

The listing claims that the 4 bedroom/3 bathroom house is a diamond in the rough, but just one thing! Don’t even think about trying to ask about the mysterious tenant who lives upstairs rent free! The listing reads as follows:

“Upstairs apartment cannot be shown under any circumstances. Buyer assumes responsibility for the month-to-month tenancy in the upstairs apartment. Occupant has never paid, and no security deposit is being held, but there is a lease in place. (Yes, it does not make sense, please don’t bother asking.)”

So this has of course prompted people to begin jumping to all types of conclusions regarding this property and it’s mystery tenant. The listing goes on to state that the home is being sold as is with no repairs or clean-up and no warranties are expressed or implied. The sellers do note that not much is known about the property, but it does have active roof leaks. This would definitely have to be an investment purchase to deal with all of those issues, not to mention the mystery guest upstairs!

The listing for the home was posted on Zillow 32 days ago and the asking price for the home is $130,000. The home was also listed on the real estate website, HotPad, where the mystery occupant was described as a professional artist living upstairs, however that listing has now ended.

What do you think is going on here? Could there be a ghost living upstairs and the property is haunted? Is it just a really eccentric artist-type? Either way it is very creepy and certainly sparks our curiosity. Wonder if anyone will tour the property and get to the bottom of this whole nightmare, and can they please let us know what they find! Inquiring minds want to know!

Curious About What Humans Will Look Like 1,000 Years From Now?

(PCM) Human beings as a species are constantly evolving and with the continued growth of technology, it leads us to wonder just where human evolution will end up in the next 1,000 years or so. We have always heard the rumors that there will eventually be chips implanted under our skin for identification and different chips implanted in our fingers to that we could swipe to use as payment when shopping. Many even wonder if one day we will become so obsessed with our smart phone that they will eventually just be implanted permanently in our ears or in front of our faces … look at the invention of Google Glass!

The folks over at Tech Insider have considered many of these ideas and have put together a video that shows how they think humans will evolve by the year 3017 and it is definitely a little freaky! Not to worry too much because surely none of us will actually be around by then, but it definitely sparks some food for thought.

The video. which can be seen below, suggests that by the year 3017 we will have found a way to possibly merge our bodies with machinery, be living on different planets such as Mars and even potentially make ourselves immune to all diseases and reverse the process of aging.
