10 อันดับข้อเท็จจริงที่รบกวนจิตใจอย่างแท้จริงเกี่ยวกับป่าฆ่าตัวตายของญี่ปุ่น

รู้จักกันอย่างเป็นทางการในชื่อป่าอาโอกิงาฮาระหนึ่งในสถานที่ลึกลับที่สุดในโลกนี้รู้จักกันดีในชื่อป่าฆ่าตัวตาย ตามชื่อที่แนะนำนี่เป็นเพราะคนจำนวนมากที่เอาชีวิตตัวเองไปที่นั่น แท้จริงแล้วมีผู้คนหลายร้อยคนฆ่าตัวตายในป่าที่หนาวเหน็บที่สุดแห่งนี้ในแต่ละปีบางทีป่าอาจดึงดูดผู้คนที่ต้องการเอาชีวิตของตัวเองเนื่องจากมีประวัติการฆ่าตัวตายที่น่ากลัว - เกือบจะเหมือนกับคำทำนายที่ตอบสนองตัวเอง หรือบางทีอาจจะมีบางอย่างที่ชั่วร้ายอย่างแท้จริงที่ทำให้จิตใจและความคิดของผู้คนเปลี่ยนไป หรือเราอาจพบว่าความผิดปกติของแม่เหล็กมีผลอย่างน่ากลัว? นี่คือเหตุผล 10 ประการที่ทำให้ Suicide Forest เป็นสถานที่ที่รบกวนจิตใจอย่างแท้จริง

10. สถานที่แห่งนี้เต็มไปด้วยริบบิ้น
หากคุณเข้าไปในป่าฆ่าตัวตายสิ่งแรกที่คุณจะสังเกตเห็นคือริบบิ้น และในขณะที่มันไม่ได้ฟังดูน่ากลัวในตัวเอง แต่เรื่องราวเบื้องหลังสำหรับพวกเขาก็คือ แต่ละคนเป็นตัวแทนของคนที่อย่างน้อยที่สุดก็เข้าไปในป่าโดยมีจุดประสงค์เพื่อฆ่าตัวตาย อย่างไรก็ตามหลายคนมักจะใช้ริบบิ้นสียาวกับพวกเขา พวกเขาจะผูกมันไว้กับต้นไม้เมื่อเข้าไปในป่า เหตุผลนี้คือในกรณีที่บุคคลนั้นเปลี่ยนใจและสามารถหาทางกลับออกไปได้อีกครั้งบ่อยครั้งที่ถ้าคุณทำตามริบบิ้นเหล่านี้คุณมักจะพบศพที่ส่วนท้ายของพวกเขา มักจะห้อยลงมาจากต้นไม้ มันเป็นเครื่องเตือนใจที่น่ากลัวอย่างแท้จริงสำหรับภาพความงามอื่น ๆ ของภูมิภาคที่หลายคนมาที่นี่และไม่เคยจากไป


9. สิ่งของส่วนตัวกระจัดกระจายไปทุกหนทุกแห่ง
การค้นพบที่น่าสะเทือนใจอีกอย่างที่คุณควรจะพบใน Suicide Forest คือของใช้ส่วนตัวมากมาย สิ่งต่างๆเช่นโทรศัพท์มือถือโน้ตบุ๊กและแม้แต่เสื้อผ้า บางครั้งสิ่งของเหล่านี้จะถูกค้นพบในกองเล็ก ๆ เกือบจะเหมือนกับว่ามีคนหลายคนในช่วงเวลาที่ต่างกันหยุดอยู่ในจุดเหล่านี้เพื่อเอาชนะความคิดของพวกเขา บางทีอาจจะเป็นครั้งสุดท้ายคุณอาจพบขวดเครื่องดื่มเปล่าข้างกล่องและซองยาตามใบสั่งแพทย์ คนส่วนใหญ่ที่เอาชีวิตของตัวเองมาที่นี่ทำด้วยการแขวนคอตัวเอง แต่บางคนที่เข้ามาเลือกที่จะใช้ยาดังกล่าวเกินขนาดยิ่งไปกว่านั้นสิ่งที่ทำให้สิ่งของเหล่านี้เป็นเรื่องที่น่าสนใจยิ่งขึ้นคือการตระหนักว่าแต่ละรายการเชื่อมต่อกับคนที่มีชีวิตครั้งหนึ่ง คนที่รู้สึกสิ้นหวังที่เอาชีวิตของตัวเองมาที่นี่ และเพียงเพื่อตอกกลับบ้านให้ไกลขึ้นพวกเขามีแนวโน้มที่จะทำเช่นนั้นใกล้กับจุดที่พบสิ่งของ

8. Ghosts Of The Dead“ กระตุ้น” การฆ่าตัวตาย
ดังที่เราอาจจินตนาการได้ว่ามีเรื่องเล่าเกี่ยวกับผีและวิญญาณมากมายที่อาศัยอยู่ในป่า อย่างไรก็ตามบางตำนานบอกว่าวิญญาณเหล่านี้กระตุ้นให้ผู้คนใช้ชีวิตของตัวเองขณะที่พวกเขาท่องไปตามต้นไม้เป็นความเชื่อที่แพร่หลายในคติชนของญี่ปุ่นว่าเมื่อมีคนเสียชีวิตอย่างกะทันหันหรือรุนแรงสิ่งนี้จะทำให้พวกเขากลายเป็นยูเรอิ กล่าวกันว่าวิญญาณผีเหล่านี้ถ่ายทอดความโกรธและความโกรธไปยังผู้ที่สงสัยในทางของพวกเขา ยกตัวอย่างเช่นหลายคนมักพูดถึงความรู้สึกวิตกกังวลอย่างกะทันหันโดยไม่มีเหตุผล หรือคลื่นแห่งความกลัวหรือความตื่นตระหนกเอาชนะพวกเขาโดยไม่มีการเตือน ลองนึกภาพดูว่ามีความรู้สึกเหล่านี้ในขณะที่จัดการกับความคิดฆ่าตัวตายอย่างแท้จริงนอกจากนี้เรายังอาจสังเกตว่ามีสถานที่อื่น ๆ อีกมากมายทั่วโลกที่ผู้คนพูดถึงอารมณ์เชิงลบที่รุนแรง ในขณะที่เราจะตรวจสอบเพิ่มเติมในรายการสุดท้ายของเราเหตุผลในวันนี้อาจพิสูจน์ได้ว่าทางธรณีวิทยาเมื่อเทียบกับอาถรรพณ์

7. สัญญาณเตือนมีอยู่ทุกที่ที่ทำให้ท้อถอยการฆ่าตัวตาย
หากข้อใดข้อหนึ่งข้างต้นไม่ได้ตอกย้ำจำนวนคนที่เอาชีวิตตัวเองในป่าฆ่าตัวตายกลับบ้านสัญญาณเตือนจำนวนมากที่มีอยู่รอบ ๆ เตือนผู้คนโดยเฉพาะไม่ให้ฆ่าตัวตายอาจจะทำได้ และป้ายเหล่านี้สามารถพบได้ทั่วไปในป่า สัญญาณเหล่านี้ไม่เพียง แต่มีคำเตือนที่พยายามโน้มน้าวให้ผู้คนเปลี่ยนใจไม่ฆ่าตัวตาย แต่ยังโฆษณาหมายเลขโทรศัพท์ขององค์กรหลายแห่งที่พยายามช่วยเหลือผู้คนในกรอบความคิดที่มืดมนเช่นนี้สัญญาณเหล่านี้จะสร้างความแตกต่างให้กับผู้ที่เข้ามาในป่าด้วยความคิดที่จะเอาชีวิตของตัวเองหรือไม่บางทีอาจเปิดให้มีการถกเถียงกัน อย่างไรก็ตามข้อเท็จจริงที่ว่าเจ้าหน้าที่ได้ใช้มาตรการเหล่านี้อาจแสดงให้เห็นว่าพวกเขาจัดการกับปัญหาอย่างจริงจังเพียงใด และเมื่อเราดูประเด็นต่อไปก็ง่ายที่จะเห็นว่าทำไมพวกเขาถึงทำเช่นนั้น

6. ประมาณ 100 ศพต่อปีพบในป่า
คิดว่าในแต่ละปีมีผู้เสียชีวิตราว 100 ศพถูกนำออกจากป่าที่น่าสยดสยอง และยิ่งไปกว่านั้นยังมีอีกมากมายที่ยังคงอยู่ที่นั่นเป็นเวลาหลายปีก่อนการค้นพบกลุ่มพิเศษเข้าไปในป่า หากพบศพใด ๆ ให้แจ้งตำรวจทันที สมาชิกคนหนึ่งของกลุ่มซึ่งโดยปกติจะเป็นสมาชิกที่มีอายุมากกว่าจะยังคงอยู่ในที่เกิดเหตุเพื่อให้แน่ใจว่าไม่มีสิ่งใดรบกวน หากบังเอิญพวกเขาพบใครบางคนที่ยังมีชีวิตอยู่และอาจยังคิดที่จะเอาชีวิตของตัวเองพวกเขาจะพาคน ๆ นั้นกลับไปที่“ บ้านปลอดภัย” ที่อยู่ใกล้ป่า เมื่ออยู่ที่นั่นพวกเขาได้รับการสนับสนุนอย่างยิ่งให้ยอมรับความช่วยเหลือที่จำเป็นในการกลับมาจากที่มืดที่พบตัวเอง ไม่ยากที่จะนึกภาพออกว่าทำไมคนที่ทำหน้าที่น่ากลัวเหล่านี้ถึงเบื่อหน่ายกับ“ นักท่องเที่ยว” ที่มาเที่ยวป่าและมองว่ามันเป็นภาพที่น่าชมอย่างไรก็ตามในขณะที่เราจะสำรวจในประเด็นต่อไปเราไม่สามารถแน่ใจได้อย่างแน่นอนเกี่ยวกับตัวเลขเหล่านี้เนื่องจากทางการญี่ปุ่นไม่ได้เผยแพร่ตัวเลขเหล่านี้อีกต่อไป

5. ไม่มีการให้หมายเลขอย่างเป็นทางการอีกต่อไป
ในความพยายามต่อไปเพื่อหยุดยั้งผู้คนจำนวนมากที่มาถึง Suicide Forest เพื่อเอาชีวิตของตัวเองเจ้าหน้าที่จะตัดสินใจยุติการเผยแพร่ตัวเลขอย่างเป็นทางการ และเช่นเดียวกับผู้ที่ประสบความสำเร็จในการสละชีวิตของตัวเองแล้วยังมีความพยายามอื่น ๆ อีกหลายร้อยครั้งที่อาจมีหลายสาเหตุด้วยกันบางทีพวกเขาอาจถูกพูดถึงเรื่องนี้หรือเพียงแค่คิดว่าการกระทำที่วางแผนไว้ดีกว่าซึ่งไม่ประสบความสำเร็จไม่เพียง แต่ตัวเลขที่ดูเหมือนจะดึงดูดความสนใจของประชากรชาวญี่ปุ่นเท่านั้น แต่ถึงแม้ผู้สร้างภาพยนตร์จะตั้งเรื่องราวของพวกเขาไว้ที่นั่นโดยปกติจะวนเวียนอยู่กับตัวเอกที่ฆ่าตัวตายหรือคิดเรื่องบันเทิง บางทีหนึ่งในตัวอย่างที่ดีที่สุดคือภาพยนตร์เรื่อง Sea of ​​Trees ของ Gus Van Sant จากปี 2015อีกครั้งนี่อาจเป็นการสาธิตที่ดีว่าปัญหาการฆ่าตัวตายนั้นร้ายแรงเพียงใด การกระทำนี้ทำให้คนฆ่าตัวตายในป่าลดลงหรือไม่

4. การตั้งแคมป์ค้างคืนขมวดคิ้วและท้อแท้
สำหรับผู้ที่ต้องการกางเต็นท์และตั้งแคมป์ใน Suicide Forest คุณจะท้อแท้อย่างยิ่งที่จะทำเช่นนั้น และถึงอย่างนั้นคุณต้องอยู่บนเส้นทางที่เป็นทางการจริงๆ ในที่สุดความทะเยอทะยานดังกล่าวถูกมองว่าไม่เคารพโดยชาวญี่ปุ่นจำนวนมาก อาจเป็นเพราะเหตุนี้ผู้ที่มองหาการผจญภัยที่น่ากลัวมักจะพาตัวเองลึกเข้าไปในป่าห่างจากเส้นทางและสายตาที่จ้องมอง สิ่งนี้มักทำให้ผู้คนหลงทางและสับสนยิ่งไปกว่านั้นอุณหภูมิมักจะลดลงจนเป็นจุดเยือกแข็งในตอนกลางคืนซึ่งอาจทำให้เกิดปัญหาต่อไปสำหรับผู้ที่ต้องการค้างคืนในป่าเหตุผลหลักคือการกีดกันผู้คนให้อยู่ในป่าเป็นเวลานาน โดยเฉพาะอย่างยิ่งหากพวกเขากำลังเก็บงำความคิดฆ่าตัวตาย และเมื่อเราก้าวไปสู่จุดต่อไปก็จะเห็นได้ง่ายกว่าว่าทำไม

3. หลายคนเชื่อว่ามี“ พลังงานชั่วร้าย” อาศัยอยู่ในป่า
ในทำนองเดียวกันกับตำนานเกี่ยวกับการปรากฏตัวของผีที่น่ากลัวหลายตำนานหมุนรอบแนวคิดเรื่อง Suicide Forest เพียงแค่เป็นสถานที่แห่งความชั่วร้ายที่บริสุทธิ์ ไม่ว่าจะเป็นเพราะวิญญาณหรือเพียงพลังงานชั่วร้ายบางคนก็สมัครรับทฤษฎีที่ว่าสิ่งเลวร้ายเกิดขึ้นที่นั่นเพราะพลังเหนือธรรมชาติหากเราเชื่อว่าความชั่วร้ายปรากฏออกมาจากเหตุการณ์ในอดีตการที่ผู้คนจำนวนมากเอาชีวิตมาทิ้งไว้ในจุดนี้ก็จะมีส่วนทำให้เกิดสิ่งนั้นอย่างแน่นอน อย่างไรก็ตามก่อนที่จะมีการฆ่าตัวตายในช่วงปลายศตวรรษที่ 20 ป่าก็มีอดีตที่น่ากลัว ตัวอย่างที่ดีในเรื่องนี้คือการปฏิบัติในปี 1800 เมื่อหลายครอบครัวพาผู้สูงอายุไปที่ป่าและปล่อยให้พวกเขา "ตายอย่างสมศักดิ์ศรี" ในป่าไม้เป็นเรื่องที่น่าสนใจอย่างแน่นอนหากคิดว่ามืดมน อย่างไรก็ตามสำหรับประเด็นต่อไปเราจะย้อนกลับไปที่ประวัติศาสตร์ของป่าและความเป็นมาของป่าไม้ และในที่สุดทำไมมันถึงมีลักษณะทางจิตวิญญาณที่มืดมนเช่นนี้

2. การปะทุของภูเขาไฟฟูจิ
การสร้างป่าลดลงจนเกิดการปะทุจากภูเขาไฟฟูจิในปี 864 ผลที่ตามมาคือลาวาขนาด 12 ตารางไมล์กระจายไปทั่วบริเวณที่ป่าตั้งอยู่ในขณะนี้ เมื่อธรรมชาติที่แข็งตัวของลาวาได้ยึดพื้นที่กลับคืนมาในขณะที่ต้นไม้และก้าวล่วงขึ้นมาอย่างอุดมสมบูรณ์ ในหลายศตวรรษที่ตามมาชาวญี่ปุ่นบูชาภูเขาไฟฟูจิในฐานะเทพเจ้า นอกจากนี้ความผูกพันทางวิญญาณที่ยิ่งใหญ่ยังก่อตัวขึ้นระหว่างประชาชนและภูมิภาคการปะทุครั้งนี้ยังนำไปสู่การก่อตัวของระบบถ้ำที่แปลกประหลาดและโพรงภายในป่า หลายสิ่งเหล่านี้ไม่ได้รับการสำรวจและมักมีตำนานและตำนานติดมาด้วย นี่เป็นการเพิ่มชั้นของการวางอุบายให้กับป่าไม้ลึกลับการเริ่มต้นสู่ป่านี้มีความเชื่อมโยงกับธรรมชาติที่มืดมนหรือไม่นั้นเป็นการคาดเดาและมีไว้สำหรับการถกเถียง อย่างไรก็ตามสำหรับประเด็นสุดท้ายของเราเราจะหันไปหาวิทยาศาสตร์และการค้นพบล่าสุดที่อาจทำให้เกิดความกระจ่างในทางที่ดูเหมือนว่าป่า Aokigahara จะทำให้เกิดหรืออย่างน้อยก็ขยายความคิดที่มืดมน


1. ความผิดปกติของแม่เหล็กอาจทำให้เกิดการฆ่าตัวตายหรือไม่?
ในช่วงไม่กี่ปีที่ผ่านมานักวิจัยบางคนเสนอว่าความผิดปกติทางภูมิศาสตร์อาจทำให้เกิดความคิดที่มืดมนในผู้คน โดยเฉพาะคนที่ฆ่าตัวตายอยู่แล้ว เป็นความคิดของนักวิจัยบางคนว่าความผิดปกติทางธรณีแม่เหล็กเหล่านี้เกิดขึ้นใต้พื้นดินที่ป่าอาศัยอยู่ และเนื่องจากการรบกวนเหล่านี้เปลี่ยนแปลงตลอดเวลานั่นอาจแสดงให้เราเห็นว่าเหตุใดอัตราการฆ่าตัวตายจึงดูเหมือนพุ่งสูงขึ้นในช่วงไม่กี่ทศวรรษที่ผ่านมาในป่าที่น่ากลัวทีมที่ดำเนินการวิจัยยังดูบันทึกกิจกรรมทางภูมิศาสตร์แม่เหล็กในช่วงหลายปีที่ผ่านมาในประเทศอื่น ๆ พวกเขาจะพบว่าสิ่งเหล่านี้มักส่งผลให้มีการฆ่าตัวตายเพิ่มขึ้น และในทางกลับกันสิ่งเหล่านี้ก็ลดลงเมื่อความผิดปกติทางภูมิศาสตร์ดังกล่าวหยุดลงข้อสรุปที่น่าสนใจอย่างหนึ่งของการศึกษาคือการรบกวนทางภูมิศาสตร์เหล่านี้ดูเหมือนจะส่งผลกระทบต่อผู้ชายมากกว่าผู้หญิง แม้ว่าจะต้องมีการวิจัยและศึกษาเพิ่มเติมเกี่ยวกับทฤษฎีนี้ แต่ก็เป็นเรื่องที่น่าสนใจอย่างแน่นอน

When his doctors refused, he decided to take matters into his own hands. Hepburn attempted to remove one of his legs with a hacksaw figuring that his doctor's would have to finish the job he started. Paramedics arrived shortly after Hepburn called 911 and found him dead with his right leg almost completely cut off and a packed bag for the hospital sitting beside him.

Lam's body was discovered after residents of the hotel began to complain about the taste and color of the drinking water. As it turned out, Lam's body had been lying in the water tank for two weeks. Her death was ruled accidental but there were some interesting circumstances surrounding the case that led many to suspect foul play. First of all, there was no way for Lam to get on the roof by herself, as there was an alarm. Second of all, there was no way Lam could have opened the water tank by herself, and of course there is the last known footage of Lam seen alive, showing her behaving erratically.

Forensics quickly established that the body was female and had been dead approximately 18 months, but the identification of the female was a bit trickier.

2. Allen Showery

10 Scary Cursed Objects Scientists Still Can't Explain
Many objects around the world cause interest and intrigue, but other objects attract attention for all the wrong reasons, causing suffering, stress, anxiety, and sometimes, even death. This list is full of mysterious objects like this so keep watching to find out the top 10 most cursed objects in the world.

10. James Dean's car
James Dean was an incredibly popular actor decades ago. Just before he performed in his most famous role, a lead role in "A Rebel Without a Cause," he had begun trying to kickstart a career in car racing. He competed in one competition before Warner Brother's banned him from taking part in any competition while filming for the movie "Giant." Unfortunately, this ban went unheeded and James Dean sadly crashed his Porsche 550 Spyder and died. But the story gets weird when we focus on the car in question. Famous actor Alec Guinness recalls looking at Dean's car, turning to James, and telling him he was going to die in it, and that it was a sinister car. After James died, George Barris bought the wrecked Prosche for 25 hundred dollars. Strangely, a mechanic broke his leg getting it off the trailer. The car parts were integrated into other Porsches, two of which crashed, killing one person and seriously injuring another.

9. Thomas Busby's Dead Man's Chair
Thomas Busby was a murderer who lived in the north of Yorkshire in the UK around the 1600s. Busby married Elizabeth, the daughter of a man named Daniel Awety. He and Daniel became friends and partners in crime for quite a while, though supposedly, Busby was always in the foulest of moods with Awety. One faithful day, Busby grew so angry with Awety that Awety actually made his way around Thomas Busby's inn and threatened to take Elizabeth home with him. What made the dangerous drunkard even more angry was that Awety was sitting in his favorite seat.

Busby threw him out, and later that night, went over to his house with a hammer and murdered Daniel Awety. He was sentenced to death for the crime. The legend goes that Busby cursed his favorite chair before he left to be killed and wished death upon all those that sat on it. Strangely enough, in 1894, a chimney sweep was found dead out near Busby's gibit. The sweep had sat in that cursed chair. Again, during the second world war, a team of RCAF men were goading each other to sit in the chair. None of the men would make it back home alive and were killed in the war. Once again in 1968, the soon to be landlord, Tony Earnshaw, reported hearing two Airmen daring each other to sit in the chair. They both reportedly crashed in a car on the way back to the airfield. Fortunately, the seat now hangs as an attraction in the Thirsk Museum so no one can sit on it.

8. "The Crying Boy" painting
There are a load of supposedly cursed paintings in the world, a lot of which reportedly bring death to those that own them. One particularly interesting painting is "The Crying Boy" painted by Giovanni Bragolin in the 1950s as part of a series. It proved to be quite popular in its time, but it turns out the owners of this painting were met with a strange and eerie set of events. Multiple owners of the painting have been reported to have suffered a terrible fire in their homes, two of which happened for the same reason: a chip pan became too hot and exploded. Many things were destroyed in the blaze, but in both instances, the painting remained untouched. The rumor then blew up even more as the firefighter claimed that he had been to fifteen houses where he found that painting completely untouched. "The Sun," a popular tabloid newspaper in the UK, ran story after story claiming more and more people had been sufferers of bad luck through owning the painting. It was concluded that the painting must've been printed on flame retardant material, but for those families back in the days of the 60s and 70s, the curse is all too real. Another more modern painting that has been claimed to be cursed also exists in the UK, and is entitled "The Anguished Man." There are a lot of cursed artists out there, by the sounds of it.

7. The skull of Katherine Griffith
Katherine Griffith lived in Burton Agnes Hall around the 1600s. Supposedly, the story goes that one afternoon, when the house was almost officially finished, Katherine was robbed by a group of thugs, who also beat her to death. She had told her sisters before she died that she would never rest until a part of her was safe in that house. Yet her sisters forgot about this, and she was buried in the churchyard. The house preceded to be haunted by her ghost. The sisters, realizing their mistake, sought to make peace with the vicar and asked if they can dig up their sister. The grave was dug up and Katherine's skull was brought into the house. After a while, many attempts were made to get rid of it but every single time, strange and ghostly things would happen around the house. It is believed that all these years after, the skull is still in the house, built into the walls. Thank God she's in the house, because she'd be causing a fuss if she wasn't.

6. Robert the doll
Robert Eugene Otto was the first owner of this doll, which resembles a boy with a sailor's suit on. His relationship with the doll was very questionable. Supposedly, a young Robert began to blame mishaps and accidents on the doll. Servants also reported that he had closed door conversations with the doll, saying they could also hear a deeper tone voice replying and conversing with the child. Robert's relationship with the doll continued into his adult life. He reportedly treated it like a real person, and the two of them were inseparable. After Otto's death, many people reported hearing giggling and footsteps from the attic and children that passed by Robert's house would often claim to see the doll move from the window regularly. Although the doll is locked in a glass case in a museum now, people still report that lights flicker, cameras malfunction, and tourists must ask to take a picture of Robert, or suffer dire consequences. Speaking of dolls that inspire movies, did you know that the Annabelle doll is also real? It looks a bit different that the one in the movie, but it's just as scary.

5. The Basano Vase
The Basasno Vase is probably one of the oldest artifacts in this list. It was carved from silver in the 15th century. The legend goes that it was a gift made for a bride who resided in the northern village close to Naples. However on her wedding night, the bride was found lying on the floor dead, clutching the vase. After the woman's funeral was sorted out, the vase began to be handed down from family member to family member, but with each person that decided to take ownership of the vase came another suspicious death. Some reports even state that the vase had a piece of parchment in it that read 'beware, this vase brings death,' but that it was thrown out very early on. An archeologist took ownership of the vase, only to die of an unknown infection. And one of the vase's last known actions was to nearly hit a policeman on the head as someone threw it out of a window. It was handed over to police, who tried to give it to museums, who all flat out refused to take it. After a while, it was buried in an undisclosed location. Some even claim it was considered so dangerous, it was buried in a lead coffin and put in an ancient cemetery. Whereever it is, let's hope it stays in the ground.

4. The Hope Diamond
It was supposedly stolen by a thief from the face of an idol standing by an Indian temple. The thief suffered a slow, agonizing death shortly after this. It was then uncovered again and was sold to King Louie the Fourteenth by a French merchant who soon met his death as well. Of course Louie and his wife Marie Antoinette are often referred to as victims of the diamond, as they were beheaded in the overthrowing of the monarchy. From then, everybody that was reportedly to have owned the diamond has suffered a horrible death. There are a lot of jewels that are said to be cursed, such as the Delhi Purple Sapphire, another jewel stolen from it's resting place and passed around owners. Each owner has reportedly suffered bad financial situations and health problems. When will we learn that jewels stolen from spiritual places can cause bad luck by the bucketful?

3. Maori Warrior Mask
The Maori people are the indigenous, or original inhabitants of New Zealand before settlers went over there. Their ancient practices remain a bit of a mystery to historians, but what we do know is the masks from those times were carved before battle. It was said that if the warrior died in battle, his soul would be encased in the mask forever. Sounds like just another silly story? Well at the Auckland Museum, the masks are accompanied with their own warning messages, and one Wellington based museum know as Te Papa, a Maori name that translates as 'Our Place' tells pregnant women to stay away from the tour of scared Maori artifacts, or risk incurring a curse. I would say it is all a bit silly to be true, but you never really know with the ancient and mystical cultures.

2. The woman of Lemb Statue
Those that know the history call if the Goddess of Death. Having been created around 35 hundred BC, many historians believe it was probably a statue representing fertility. Lord Oliphant was it's first reported owner after it's mysterious background. Within six years, all the members of his family were dead. It's next owner, Ivor Menucci and his family died within a shorter, 4 year period. And surprise, surprise, the third owner, a Lord Thompson Noel and his family and perished within four years as well. It vanished for a brief period, and within that period, it came into the ownership of Sir Alan Biverbrook who died along with his wife and daughters. The two sons of Alan that survived the curse donated the statue to the Royal Museum of Edinburgh and is now readily available for any brave tourist that doesn't believe in (coughs) silly superstition.

1. Petrified Forest National Park
This last one is an extremely interesting case of multiple cursed objects. The Petrified Forest National Park in Arizona has enticed and attracted visitors for quite some time now. It has one of the world's largest collections of petrified wood, which results in an amazing experience, as well as an educational one for those not familiar with the science behind wood. All throughout its history, people have taken bits of wood home as little souvenirs so much so that they made it a felony. But has that stopped people? Absolutely not. Around 1930, people who visited the park and took a piece of wood would complain of experiencing a lot of bad luck. It has since become part of the national park's history. In fact, there is a whole room at the park dedicated to the telling of bouts of bad luck, divorces, incarcerations, and deaths that have followed from a stolen bit of petrified wood.

10 Urban Legends That Inspired Real Crimes
Urban legends are supposed to be fictional stories that we read for entertainment, while these urban legends might inspire a few nightmares at the end of the day. We know these stories aren't real, however there are a select few people who are greatly inspired by these stories and even risk their freedom to show their dedication.

1. Wrinkles The Clown
Urban legends surrounding clowns are less than positive, usually they involve someone going down the sewers having bad dreams or something that will cause you to have to go to therapy for the next 20 years. Websites are full of clown related urban legends that tend to pick up momentum on social media, then these stories end up perpetuating copycat incidents that once again end up on the news thus the never-ending cycle continues and the urban legend grows stronger. For example parents in South Florida were hiring a clown by the name of a Wrinkles to hide in their children's bedrooms and scare them at night. Why in the world would parents do this to their children? Well to scare them into behaving properly because nanny cams basically record everything that's happening videos began to surface of Wrinkles appearing under beds and placing stuffed animals next to the child before turning off the camera to wreak havoc, basically this is where horror movies get their ideas from. Granted this wasn't technically a crime, but it was likely that these parents probably got a visit from social services. Perhaps instead of saving for a college fund, and they need to put up a therapy fund for their child.

2. Penpal
Probably one of the most unsettling things one can experience is when they receive pictures of themselves in the mail from an unknown source, it forces you to realize that you're being watched, and there's nothing you can do about it. It forces you to realize that regardless of how protected you may think you are, you are still vulnerable. A story called Penpal made its way onto the website Creepypasta. It was about a boy who was participating in a school project where they released balloons to see if they can get a Penpal. The boy ended up not getting a letter. but instead he got tons of polaroid pictures. Initially they were blurry, but once he looked at all the pictures he realized he was in every photo. So it makes it all the more unsettling when there were true stories out there remotely similar to this seemingly urban legend. There was a story in Connecticut of a school principal named John Bean who was following his students to Walmart and taking their photo. In North Carolina a school's volunteer of the year got in trouble for taking pictures of elementary school girls without their permission. Walter Shore ended up pleading guilty to some pretty awful charges

3. Slender Man
Spoiler alert: this won't be the last time you hear about Slender Man It's amazing how a made-up character managed to inspire some pretty intense crimes We'll start off with the most famous crime where two young girls who lured their friend into a park bathroom and proceeded to do her in like Julius Caesar. Miraculously the girl survived. Why did the two girls do such a heinous crime they wanted to sacrifice their friend to Slender Man, so that they could go live with him in his mansion. Well as we know, Slender Man isn't real and he's based on a meme from creepypasta. the mansion actually came from a video game That was inspired by Slenderman. So he know that preteen girls aren't always the smartest people in the world, but did they really think that they were going to get away with such a terrible act? One of the teens was sentenced to 25 years in a mental hospital. If she was so gullible to do this to someone for the sake of an urban legend ,that's probably the best place for her.

4. Laughing Jack
You know what would really lift up our spirits? Let's talk about clowns again! Yay!! The story of Laughing Jack is definitely not for the faint of heart. Laughing Jack is basically an imaginary friend. Who is the opposite of nice. He infiltrates children's dreams very much like Freddy Krueger, and he replaces their organs with candy. Ain't that nice? Anyway,  of course you could read the story online and be able to tell right away that it's just a scary story And an urban legend. Yet one girl thought that Laughing Jack was the real deal. Apparently instead of being filled with candy, Laughing Jack told the girl to pretty much end the life of her stepmother the twelve-year-old not only did her stepmother in, but she also set the apartment on fire. The kid actually ended up admitting that she committed the crime. And she was eventually declared too incompetent to stand trial. That basically means that she'll be spending the rest of her adolescent in a psych ward.

5. Walking Sam
Walking Sam is a similar entity as slender Man, who drove teens from a Sioux tribe in South Dakota to harm themselves. Basically the urban legend has a few variations were Walking Sam is either wandering the earth to collect souls or he drives people mad because he looks so spooky. Either way Hundreds of people between the ages of 12 and 24 attempted to end their lives. The local tribe even had to remove nooses that were placed at the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. Out of those hundreds around nine people were sadly successful at their attempt. While one can say that the author of Walking Sam's story is an incredible storyteller. It is also Alarming at how gullible an entire generation can be? But because it's the Internet and a lot of people don't know how to distinguish fact and fiction. It's entirely possible that people thought this was the real deal.

6. The Call
The urban legend goes like this. There's a babysitter working the late night. She gets a call from a mysterious caller who says "Have you checked the children?". There might be some heavy breathing for a few calls and of course the babysitter is scared. When she calls the cops they trace the call and the big twist is that the call is coming from inside the house. This urban legend was inspired by an unsolved case from 1950 in Missouri. An 8th grader named Janett Christman lost her life one night while she was babysitting a three year old boy. She was later discovered at 1:00 a.m. Too late. Calls had been coming to the house, but unlike the urban legend, the police weren't able to trace them. The boy Janet was babysitting was thankfully safe. This story is often told at slumber parties as well as camp outs. Some have even tried to emulate the urban legend only to run-in with the police afterward.

7. Constant messaging
We've all heard that iconic urban legend, where a man is receiving Facebook messages from his long past girlfriend. It made us all wonder whether the girlfriend was actually alive she turned into a bot or she was a ghost still checking her social media from beyond the grave. However one man seemed to be inspired by the ghost messaging and decided to use it to try to get away with a heinous crime. Todd Colhab kidnapped a woman named Kayla Brown as well as her boyfriend Charles Carver. In order to make it look like Kayla and Charles were fine and enjoying life, Todd was posting on their Facebook pages, posing as them. There were status updates and everything. However, when deputies were searching Todd's property and ready to serve a search warrant. They passed a metal container and Kayla made a bunch of noise. She was found inside the container with a collar around her neck and chained like a dog. Sadly Charles did not survive the crime.

8. Pope Lick Monster
This might be better categorized in the people who do stupid things for urban legends. The Pope Lick Monster is a goat human hybrid creature that lives on top of a bridge above a railroad track. Legend has it that the public monster will hypnotize its victims and draw them to the tracks where they will get hit by a train. If you think that there aren't people curious enough to check it out for themselves, think again. There have been a startling amount of people who have lost their lives looking for the Pope Lick Monster. Most of them end up getting hit by an oncoming train. So in this instance would this be more truth than urban legend? Well the local police in Louisville Kentucky had to issue public statements declaring that anyone looking for the Pope Lick Monster will be trespassing plus in the United States wandering the train tracks can be considered a federal offense and receive charges of terrorism. So is it really worth looking for this terrifying urban legend?

9. Don't turn on the light
One of the creepiest urban legends is of a person in their bedroom hearing strange noises. When they wake up the next morning, they see a horrifying message written in bodily fluids that says "Aren't you glad you didn't turn on the light?" It's a story that has given us nightmares and inspired us to check every nook and crevice in our house before going to sleep. But this story did inspire someone to try it out for themselves. In 2016, a teenage girl from England received a text message. That said "I'm watching you.". She also got a text that said that he would end his life outside her bedroom window. The teen was so creeped out that she decided to sleep with her mom. She also didn't take the sender seriously when he said that he was in the house, but the next morning the sender was discovered to be in the house. He was sleeping under her bed.

10. Slenderman... again
It seems that some of the most horrifying crimes have been inspired by the one and only Slender Man. With his tall and faceless persona, you would think that people would automatically know he isn't real or they'd head for the hills. There are a lot of people who are willing to risk their freedom and personal safety for the sake of the iconic urban legend. In 2014 a 13 year old girl heard her mom repeatedly with a knife.The mom miraculously survived. Then a 14 year old girl from Florida tried to burn her house down for Slender Man. If you think Slender Man is only hitting up the teenage girls He also inspired a man named Jared Miller to attack two police officers and a civilian before he took his own life. Investigators found out that he liked to dress up a Slender Man for fun.

The Mystery of the Bermuda Triangle

On the 5th December, 1945, 14 navy airmen left Florida and took to the skies in 5 torpedo bombers, on what was supposed to be a routine 2 hour return flight as part of a training exercise, known as Flight 19. But 1:45 minutes into the journey, the flight’s leader, Lieutenant Charles Taylor, radioed the control tower, alerting them that something was dreadfully wrong. Taylor reported that all 3 of his compasses had malfunctioned. He was heard over the radio transmission reporting “we don't know which way is west. Everything is wrong. Even the ocean doesn't look as it should”. Flying over the western part of the North Atlantic Ocean in what’s now called the Bermuda Triangle, the flight and crew, shortly lost contact with the control tower and were never seen again. Later that evening a search plane was sent in a desperate attempt to locate the missing flight and guide them back to base, but just 27 minutes after take off, the search plane and its 13 man crew became lost to the Bermuda Triangle.

Surreal activities in the Bermuda Triangle have been reported since 1492, when the crew of explorer Christopher Columbus edged ever closer to what he would call, ‘The New World’. Columbus’ log reported seeing strange lights, whilst the sea took on an eerie calm before rising high without wind. He also noted that the ship’s compass gave erratic readings, which panicked the already restless crew. Situated in between Florida, Bermuda and Puerto Rico, the legend – do you mean the phrase? – of the ‘Bermuda Triangle’ was coined by author Vincent Gaddis, in a 1964 article in the magazine Argosy, to explain the perceived phenomenon of airplanes and ships going missing without a trace, without explanation. He was compelled by mysteries such as Flight 19 and the USS Cyclops, which got lost at sea off the coast of Barbados in 1918, resulting in the loss of 306 lives: the biggest loss of life in US Navy history, not related to combat.

Gaddis reported that the Bermuda Triangle is a true mystery and that even the ‘U. S. Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard investigators have admitted they are baffled’. In the last century alone 1,000 ships & planes have disappeared without a trace within the 500,000 square miles of the Bermuda Triangle. Despite no wreckages to attain evidence from, there are endless theories about the disastrous paranormal mechanisms involved in the Bermuda Triangle. The area surrounding the Bermuda Triangle has one of the highest incidences of UFO sightings, leading some conspiracy theorists to conclude that missing aircraft fall victim to alien abductions or are even absorbed by portals to other dimensions. This has been suggested to be the case in explaining the story of the Ellen Austin, an American vessel that found a deserted schooner on the Atlantic Ocean. In order to capture the schooner for themselves, members of crew from the Ellen Austin agreed to man the ship back to shore, but during the journey the two ships separated and when the re-united the schooner was once again deserted, the crew of the schooner had once again vanished without a trace.

Author Gian Quasar believes that electromagnetic anomalies in the area's atmosphere have been responsible for historic compass breakdowns. He describes the electronic fog as ‘something that will seize the aircraft and travel with you… You are not flying into the fog, it is flying with you’. This is further supported by Floridian pilot Bruce Gernon, a claimed survivor of the Bermuda Triangle. He describes the Bermuda Triangle as an engulfing ring-shaped electric fog. As he flew through the fog, he was stripped of his visibility and his electronic and magnetic navigational instruments malfunctioned causing his compass to spin wildly. Gernon only managed to break through the supernatural fog when he noticed a tunnel forming in the cloud, when he broke out he had reached the coast of Miami, leaving Gernon to conclude that the cloud he’d flown through was a time vortex.

Whilst some conspiracists look to the skies of the Bermuda Triangle for answers, others believe that the answers lie deep underwater. With the discovery of the submerged rock formation known as the Bimini Road, off the island of Bimini in 1968, conspiracy theorists Paul Weinzweig and Pauline Zalitzki, have come to believe that this formation is man-made and therefore evidence of the underwater city of Atlantis. It has been suggested that the planes and ships that have vanished in this area, may have been affected by leftover technology from this empire such as the ancient crystals thought to have powered the civilisation. Despite the mystery that surrounds the Bermuda Triangle, the U.S Coast Guard state that the majority of disappearances can be attributed to human error or the area’s unique natural features and no studies have found conclusive evidence for unusual magnetic anomalies in the area. The Gulf Stream essentially acts as a river within the Atlantic ocean, it flows through the Straits of Florida into the North Atlantic and it’s powerful current is a possible explanation for why there is no debris from ship and plane wreckages, which may be swept away by the Gulf Stream, erasing any evidence of disaster.
