The Internet is a Fascinating Place!
The internet is not only an invention that has made our lives a lot easier—it’s also made life a lot more interesting. From bizarre viral videos to obscure quizzes and head-scratching optical illusions, there are so many fun things to discover. You just have to know where to look! Here are some of the best weird things on the internet to laugh at, puzzle at, and tell your friends about.
9 Weird Things on the Internet
If you’ve ever owned a cat, you’ve probably witnessed them jump from a height (whether it’s a table or a tree) on more than one occasion. This site takes your jumping cat to a whole new level. It’s simply cats bouncing up and down on your screen. You can also move the cats around with your mouse or click a button to make it rain cats!
Even though the Oprah Winfrey Show has been off the air for many years now, the internet is still obsessing over the reactions of audience members when they realized Oprah was about to do an extravagant giveaway. The Beesbeesbees site is proof that the phenomenon is nowhere close to dead. It’s a video on a loop of audience members reacting to Oprah’s giveaway—but with a twist. Rather than getting cars or luxury electronics, everyone is getting (you guessed it!) bees.
The Endless Horse
This idea and visual is incredibly simple yet perplexing. It’s simply a virtual drawing of a horse with extra-long legs. Legs that are so long, in fact, that they seem to never end. You can keep scrolling and scrolling and the horse’s legs will only keep growing.
We’ve all done it at one time or another: pretended we’re an NBA star while gracefully throwing a ball of trash into a trashcan and shouting “Kobe!” Try your hand at throwing virtual trash into the wastebin on this website. Even if you make the basket, the trash will come back out and you can just keep throwing one piece of trash after another into the bucket. It’s strangely satisfying!
Salad Fingers Video
This bizarre creepy video is an animated creature that just may haunt you in your sleep. Even the intro music seems like something straight out of a horror movie. Be warned: you cannot unsee salad fingers!
It’s hard to explain exactly what is enjoyable about this image. All you have to do is move your cursor and the worm-like animation will jiggle with it. The faster you move your cursor, the more intense the jiggling will become. Just be careful because if you’re sensitive to flashing lights, this may not be the website for you. But don’t worry: there are plenty of other weird things on the internet for you to see!
If you’re a competitive person, you’ll probably find this site incredibly frustrating. This is a virtual game of checkers where all the pieces move automatically all on their own. You have no control over the outcome. It’s pretty mindless, but it can be fun to watch!
The Dividing Circles
This is probably one of the more interesting weird pages on the internet. The game starts with a single circle. Click on it and you’ll have two smaller circles. Simply keep clicking on circles to multiply them. You can purposefully divide some circles and not others to change the visual layout on the screen. The circles of various shapes and shades of green make for a makeshift piece of abstract art!
The Falling Graphic
This bizarre site gives the illusion that you’re falling into oblivion. The oddly-shaped layers on the graphic change color and there’s even some ominous music in the background. Probably don’t go on this site if you’re prone to motion sickness or you’re pretty sensitive to heights.
