The world is full of creepy things. I mean, just take a look at clowns. Why the hell do they exist? Why thought they'd be funny? Why are they so pale? If anything they're something to be scared of!
Clowns are man-made creations though, even if you strip away the insane machinations of humanity, we're still left with some super frightening crap that's naturally roaming around the earth right now. I mean, have you ever seen a cassowary? They're basically modern-day velociraptors that love killing human beings and being generally evil.
And it's crazy for me to say, but there's something I find even creepier than giant, human-killing birds.
Weird stuff like this, for example.
This crazy, alien-looking nest was found by an Imgur user whose parents opened their water-meter box for the first time in a long time. Of course, they live in Australia, which makes the find all the more harrowing. Who knows if there aren't hundreds of deadly poisonous spiders camping out in this thing?
He took to Imgur in the hopes of finding answers and, like always, the internet came through.
People were freaked out.
Even the water tries to kill you in australia
Close the lid. Call the water service and report a suspected leak. They can deal with that sh**!
If you touch it, you'll probably get an arm like that guy in District 9
But it turns out there was no cause for alarm.
It was a hive for Tetragonula stingless bees. That's right: He happened upon a nest of bugs in Australia that won't harm or kill you, which basically makes him the luckiest guy in the world.
He even provided a link of different examples of their hives that look way creepier than they really are.
You can read more about these stingless bees and how they live here. Even though I know they're pretty much harmless (aside from "nipping" people), I still wouldn't want to come across something like that in real life.
