As of September 2014, there were 1 billion websites on the internet, and the number is increasing like amoebas on a Petri dish. A good majority of these websites are of course porn and various personal blogs. You will also get the standard news websites, social media sites, business sites and boring sites that serve no purpose. Scattered among these normie websites are some weird websites that you cannot unsee once seen. Like diamonds in the rough, these sites can creep you out, make you laugh and make you question your sanity at the same time. Sometimes you may think, maybe this is why the internet truly exists.
Here is a list of top 10 weirdest websites that will definitely make your day:
The internet is for cats people. No one gets it more that whoever created this gem of a site. When you go to the URL, you get this text: “loading a cat and buffering a song.” That’s all you need to know about this site. Basically, it’s a place where you can go to watch cat GIFs played to highly appropriate tunes. You will be greeted with a cat driving a car to a cool Daft Punk-like tune, or a cat “hugging” a plush toy to an unbearable Italian love song. If you don’t like the cat GIF you get, you can switch to another cat by clicking on the top right corner. And yes, this is the ultimate website for procrastinating. If you are at work and you miss your cat, you can just visit this site and feel the love. It’s not like the office network can censor cats anyway. If you are a dog person, this site would be one of those odd websites.
Having a bad day? Then skip the bar and visit this website. Click on the giant blue button below the picture of Darth Vader with a talk bubble reading “Noooooooo!” You will hear Vader’s agonized “nooooooooooooo” while ominous music plays in the background. Does that reflect your mood? Star Wars buffs will immediately recognize the “noooooooooo” from the end of “Revenge of the Sith.” It’s Darth Vader’s cry of pain after he hears his beloved has died. Let’s face it; your day was probably not as bad as the guy’s who just had his skin burned off in a giant lava pit only to wake up and learn that his pregnant wife had died. As far as weird websites go, this one actually may serve a good purpose.
Weirdest websites on the net can sometimes surprise you in like a Fresh philosophical, metaphysical manner. Go to the Endless Horse website and you will be greeted by a picture of a horse as you’d expect. The horse is drawn using punctuation characters. Here’s the mind-bending twist: the horse never ends. The Endless Horse has four very long legs that you have to scroll down to see. You could be scrolling down, down and down forever but you will never see the hoofs of the horse. Endless horse, get it now? Why would anyone visit a site like this? Why would anyone even create a site like this? These are excellent questions to ponder while you scroll down to see the horse’s legs.
Just when you think you have seen all there is to see of weird internet sites, then comes Eel Slap. The title doesn’t leave much to the imagination. As you would suspect, the site has a giant GIF of a man getting slapped by a slimy eel. Lovely, right? Well, the GIF is actually interactive. You can move the mouse left and right so you will be the person slapping the man with the eel. That’s quite the POV right there. If you feel like slapping anyone during a particularly hard work day, you can just visit this site and get the satisfaction of virtually slapping someone. With an eel! A slimy one that leaves a trail of goo across the man’s face. It’s far more satisfying than taking a Tylenol for that headache.
The internet is full of creeps that have the time to create super strange websites. Whenever you are feeling inadequate or ugly, go to this website. The site is created by a blue-eyed white man with an oval-shaped face who thinks he looks like Barack Obama. The homepage shows pictures of the two men side by side for comparison. Of course, they don’t look anything alike. But that’s not the point of the site. Below the pictures is an extended explanation as to why the site’s creator thinks he looks like Barack Obama. Apparently, a lot of people tell him that he does. It doesn’t help that the text sounds like it’s written by an eight-year-old. You kind of feel sorry for this guy, but mostly you just want to laugh. It’s really unclear if the site is meant as a joke, a self-satire or if this guy genuinely thinks he’s a whiter doppelganger to America’s first biracial president.
What is the internet if it can’t tell you when the world is going to end? Possibly one of the weirdest sites on the internet, Exit Mundi presents visitors with a list of scenarios where the world is going to end. Nuclear holocaust, terrorists who design pandemics, SARS, and colossal asteroids, the possibilities for apocalypse are nearly endless on this website. Also, the site creator-preferred version of the end of the world is a giant tsunami that overtakes the earth. The caption below that particular scenario says “any day now.” Given the reality of climate change, may be Exit Mundi is not wrong. Maybe it’s not all that bad if you missed a deadline or if you are about to declare bankruptcy. We are all going to die anyway.
This is hands down one of the most unusual sites on the web. The title suggests a website about the technology of some sort, perhaps what the government researches in secret. Visit the website and you’ll find out that it’s not. In fact, you may never find out what the site is actually about. There are literally jittery icons on the homepage that take you to other pages claiming to be “digital poems” of government documents and “entropic texts.” The site is created by a guy who describes himself as a digital artist. Though they’re supposed to be lots of interactive puzzles and games, you can keep clicking forever and not encounter any. If you want to challenge your brain with something completely unfamiliar and nonsensical, go visit this website.
There are loads of freaky zombie websites out there, but this zombie “dating” website just might be one of the weirdest websites ever. It’s 100 percent free to use, obviously. It’s not like the undead can work, now can they? If you are a lonely zombie or a zombie super fan, you can become a member to find the love of your unlife. It’s also for people who have been working on “dead end jobs for too long” that you might as well be dead already. The site also has (un?)lively forums, book groups, and even gaming groups.
The title says it all. This is one of those strange websites that imagine an alternative reality. In the case of this site, it opens up this wonderful world where the Beatles never broke up. The story behind the website is even weirder. The creator of the site claims that he came into the possession of a Beatles album that was never released contained in a cassette tape. The picture of the tape with the supposed album “Everyday Chemistry” is shown on the site. The site owner “found” the tape in 2009, leading him to believe that the Beatles never broke and continued to make music. You can learn more from the “Story of the Tape” section on the site. You can also listen to 11 tracks from the totally authentic unreleased album on the website. Who knows, you might end up believing the story after you listen to the songs.
No weird websites list is complete without one about conspiracy theory. Sure, there’s plenty on the internet, but this one has to take the cake thanks to how compelling some of the conspiracy theories are. The website has “information” on everything from child labor at Disney to Britney Spears’s virginity claims. The latter, everyone can agree, was total BS. Likewise, this site mixes long “essays” about totally plausible scenarios to the impossible, like people who claimed to have seen UFOs at the World Trade Center before the first plane hit on 9/11. There’s an entire section devoted to just how evil Disney is, with disclaimers that corporate lawyers threatened to sue. It’s all fun stuff to read when you feel a little bit too sane.
