10 Creepy Things People Found in Their Homes

Finding pentagrams carved into your concrete patio is not exactly a warm welcome to your new house… but that’s exactly what our interview guests on Episode 115: The Satanic Slaughterhouse discovered in their home! And they aren’t alone in their creepy finds. The Internet is full of photos of weird things left behind by former homeowners, usually uncovered by unsuspecting and mystified new residents. Here are just 10 creepy things people found in their homes:

1) It seems this obvious serial killer also enjoyed self portraiture. I found this painting tucked away behind the washer/dryer in the laundry room of my new house.”

2) If you hear slow, rhythmic rocking noises in the middle of the night, it’s time to find another rental. “Had to go to the attic to check for moisture in a house I’m renting. This is the only thing stored there and it sits directly above my bed…”

3) I would have much preferred to find a Jumanji board. “I found a Ouija board behind a heating vent”.

4) The former owner was probably trying to burn it before it killed them. “Bought a house. Found this creepy doll in the furnace room.”

5) I guess there’s no property disclosure law for satanism. This person found evidence of Satanic rituals and activity in both his basement and attic after moving in. The realtor showed him neither when he saw the house. Probably for a reason.”

6) Um… what is “IT”, exactly? “Boyfriend and I move into house and discover this engraved above his bedroom door. “It Never Stops.””

7) That definitely explains the scary noises in the basement. “A couple discovered there was a chapel hidden underneath their home dating back to the 1700s. They found it by checking out where the metal grate by their front door led.”

8) Seal it up right now, forget you were ever here. “I just found this in an old closet in my house. I nearly shat myself.”

9) How are the recently deceased supposed to read this? No, wait, I don’t want to know. “Found this in the pantry in my new house.”

10) This old baby stroller looks not at all haunted. “I should never have opened the attic”.

Woman Thinks a Ghost is in Her Closet But Finds a Stranger Wearing Her Clothes Instead

No one wants a ghost living in their closet. 

And definitely no one wants a weird transient stranger living in their closet. Or asking them for hugs. Or wearing all their clothes. Honestly, having a ghost sounds better than all those things.

Unfortunately for North Carolina college student Maddie, she got everything except the ghost in a very strange scenario that’s probably left her wishing she’d just been haunted instead.

Last week, Maddie began to believe a restless spirit had taken up residence in her closet after she heard mysterious rattling noises coming from inside. Startled, Maddie cried out, “Who’s there?!” And was even more startled to actually hear a reply:

“Oh, my name is Drew.”

Oh, whew, okay, no worries, it’s just Drew.

Wait, WHAT? WHO IN THE FRENCH TOAST IS DREW?

Drew, it turns out, was a 30-year-old stranger who had somehow entered Maddie’s apartment and decided to camp in her closet. Because, why not, right? But it gets weirder.

“I open the door and he’s in there, wearing all of my clothes," Maddie said. "My socks, my shoes, and he has a book bag full of my clothes."

After discovering her uninvited, overly-clothed guest, Maddie - who may be the most chill person to ever find someone living in their closet - let Drew talk to her and walk around her apartment while she calmly called for help. While he tried on even more of her wardrobe, temporary roommate Drew remarked how pretty Maddie was, and asked if he could have a hug (a hard pass there from Maddie). 

When Maddie’s boyfriend arrived on the scene, Drew decided to take off, and was later arrested at nearby gas station (probably trying to move in to the bathroom or something). He now faces 14 counts of felony charges including breaking and entering, and possibly several crimes against fashion - no word on that one yet.

As if this story isn’t odd enough by itself, Maddie revealed that this is not the first time she thought her house was haunted, nor the first time she’s found a stranger in her home!

Sometime after she moved in, Maddie noticed some of her shirts and pants were disappearing, and found someone else’s handprints on her bathroom wall, all of which led her to think a sticky-fingered ghost was haunting her place. But then in December 2018, Maddie came home to find “two guys in the living room.” No further details about those interlopers were provided, like whether the two guys were arrested or found to be wearing all of Maddie’s pajamas. 

But Maddie, who always locks her doors and has found no signs of forced entry, is just as perplexed as the rest of us about these strange occurrences. HOW are people getting in? WHY are they coming in? Are humans the only trespassers in her home, or is there also a ghost squeezed in there somewhere? Where have all her pants gone?!

Now, after so many mysterious disruptions, Maddie is ready to move on, and she owes the final deciding factor to new BFF Drew: “I can’t stay here. My closet, it stinks," she said. “I’m just ready to leave."

We’re right behind you, Maddie.

The 12 Best "Ancient Aliens" Memes on the Internet

In the world of memes, there may be none whose hair lives in greater infamy than that of Giorgio A. Tsoukalos, better known as "that Ancient Aliens guy!"

With his explosive bouffant 'do and ardent belief that ancient humans once interacted with alien astronauts, Tsoukalos has become an icon of memedom. Although Tsoukalos has appeared on multiple shows across multiple channels, was the consultant producer of 23 episodes of Ancient Aliens, and speaks five languages, he is most famously known for the History Channel still-frame of his emphatic upraised hands and righteously big hair:

And also, of course, for his simple but totally quotable meme catchphrase: “ALIENS.”

It’s no surprise, then, that a (probably) limitless number of Tsoukalos’ Ancient Aliens memes abound across the universe - I mean internet. As an homage to aliens, memes, Tsoukalos, and his hair, we’ve compiled 12 of the best Ancient Aliens-inspired memes for you to enjoy!
