R.I.P. Prince…But Is His Death Part Of A Massive Conspiracy Involving Chemtrails?

The world was shocked this week to learn of the death of award-winning musician Prince. At the time of this writing, the cause of Prince’s death has not been released to the public, but there is plenty of speculation out there. While, of course, reasonable explanations have arisen, there are also the slightly unhinged explanations for Prince’s death flooding social media.

The craziest so far has got to be from Alex Jones over at Infowars. Jones believes that Prince may have been the victim of a government conspiracy. The reason? His outspoken opposition to the phenomenon known as chemtrails

Yesterday, Jones’ website ran an article with the headline: “Did The Chemtrail Flu Kill Prince And Merle Haggard?”

The article goes on to speculate that Prince may have been suffering from a mysterious illness known as “Chemtrail Flu.” That is, an unknown flu-like illness said by conspiracy theorists to be spread via chemtrails.

As evidence, Jones cites an April 21 news story from TMZ that reported Prince’s jet needed to make an unscheduled landing in Illinois on April 15 due to a medical emergency.

The following day, Prince supposedly told his fans at a concert that he was battling the flu.

The final piece of evidence Jones presents is this 2010 interview in which Prince speaks out against chemtrails and speculates as to their purpose.

Hmm, now that is an interesting theory. The question, though, is does it have any basis in reality? He may have suffered from some odd strain of flu, but one spread via chemical agents in jet trails? Probably not. I think we’ll just have to accept that Prince passed away for no good reason. Life is terrible like that sometimes.

R.I.P. Prince.

These 10 CGI Works Of Art Are Just Too Creepy To Handle

Computer-generated imagery, or CGI, is an awesome technology that has allowed us to create amazingly realistic simulations in movies, video games, and more.

But while CGI enables us to produce cool effects, it can also inspire some people to bring the dark scenes in their heads to life. Let’s just say that these scenes, some of which you can see below, are completely freaky.

Prepare yourselves, because we’re about to take a journey down the rabbit hole.

1. Their smiles make me shudder.

2. Wait, nevermind — this one is much worse.

3. I really, really don’t like those teeth.

4. I’m 500 percent sure that’s going to show up in my nightmares.

6. How do you even come up with something this twisted?

7. The music makes it so much creepier.

8. You might want to move back from your screen for this one.

9. You’re also a terror-aholic.

I have to admit that these are cool in their own creepy ways, but they sure are unsettling, to say the least.

If You’re Looking For Something Terrifying To Do, Why Not Explore An Abandoned Jail?

While we don’t encourage people to explore run-down buildings, when they do — and subsequently share their photos — we can’t help but be in awe of what these daring adventurers find…

To get to an abandoned prison in Burwash, Ontario, Redditor trishm and her friends needed to sneak past an army base in the middle of night — and that was just the beginning of their journey.

When they entered the insanely creepy building, they were greeted with graffiti, decaying walls, and a claustrophobic feeling most likely shared by the inmates that once served their time there.

See that super ominous looking structure? That’s exactly where they were headed!

The Burwash Industrial Farm (also known as the Burwash Correctional Centre) was built in 1914. Between then and when it closed in 1975, the jail held anywhere from 180 to 820 inmates.

When the nearby Highway 69 was built, signs were posted warning drivers that any hitchhikers could very well be escaped convicts.

“Welcome to Hell!” Cheery.

Using inmate labor, a small town was built for the guards, prison staff, and their families. The town housed around 1,000 people and featured a church, post office, and even a public school.

var OX_ads = OX_ads || []; OX_ads.push({ slot_id: “537251602_5705c7298e9ef”, auid: “537251602” });

In 1966, convicted murderer Wayne Ford and two other inmates successfully escaped the prison. They walked 16 miles before stealing a car and driving to Toronto (which was more than 200 miles away).

The three were eventually caught and transferred to maximum security facilities.

Here’s one of the prison’s cells complete with a rather uninviting mattress. Feeling sleepy?

Trishm believes that this room was probably used for solitary confinement.

var OX_ads = OX_ads || []; OX_ads.push({ slot_id: “537251604_5705c7298eb69”, auid: “537251604” });

Just a razor blade…and blood! No biggie.

Since Burwash’s closure, the government has proposed many projects for the facility, including turning it into a maximum security prison and even an Angora goat farm.

In 1980, the land was parcelled off to the Canadian National Defense Department, the native Burwash people, and a few others. It’s also used for an annual music festival.

Nearly all of the Burwash facilities have been demolished, except for this building, known by the prison as “Camp Bison.”

In 2012 Burwash’s access to Highway 69 was cut off. The only road to it now is a decommissioned one leading to Highway 637.

Trishm claims she saw a ghost while exploring the prison, and I don’t think I can dispute this claim, seeing as how I personally would never go anywhere near this place!

What Astronauts Heard On The Moon Is Incredibly Eerie — Is This For Real?

Going to the moon is a goal for almost every astronaut, and in the late 1960s, humans accomplished that goal for the first time. It was a monumental technological breakthrough. Many people thought that we would never do it, but in the heat of the Cold War, America made it to the moon.

On our journeys since, some irregularities have occurred. Take these sounds, for example. Bizarre noises were heard on the dark side of the moon, and as you’ll hear in the video below, they were absolutely chilling.

If that doesn’t give you the willies, I don’t know what will. I have to hand it to those brave astronauts for going up there. Space travel is clearly creepy.
