Seems counterintuitive, but we know some of you readers are all about getting your adrenaline rushing. Some are true tales pulled from Reddit, while others are so freaky we hope they are fiction. He was found hanging in his room , unblinking eyes staring at nothing. A note tucked into his pocket was found only after the police cut him down.

Still, there were plenty of undying themes of abuse and self-hatred that sent chills up our spines, along with some old-fashioned scares. Something like 85 percent of our foot control comes from the big toe, so I call bullshit on that corpse finding the boy post-dinner, pre—physical therapy. The eyeballs are grapes, which checks out. The ears are dried apricots, which is ingenious.
