Conspiracies and dark web stories give me nightmares but at the same time have all of my attention! It’s like eating a tub of gooey, chocolaty ice cream—once you start, it is difficult to stop going back for more. Which is what happens with me every time I look up the internet for weird stories and information about the dark web. I’ve found myself spiraling into the depths of it so many times that it sometimes freaked me out too. I’ve read and watched some pretty disturbing stuff about it and have had endless sleepless nights because of it. So I’d suggest, be curious but also be a little aware as this could end up negatively too.
A lot of people on Reddit confessed about their experience on exploring the dark web and boy oh boy, did I stumble upon some messed up sh*t! Of course, I have filtered out the extremely graphic ones but just to give you a gist of what lingers in that part of the internet, read on these real stories.
The dark web is the darker side of the internet, simply put. It is not accessible to the regular users, so don’t try lurking your way in. It could land you in trouble. The dark web is a portal that can be entered by people who already know about it and engage in it. The website URLs are not known by ordinary people and what goes on on the dark web is disturbing. From torture chat rooms to deadly weapons and drugs being sold and bought, expect the unexpected here.
In CompSci, we often got bored and d*cked around. One day we ran into the deep web. The most disturbing site we found was a comprehensive guide for cooking women. We’re not talking about a short joke here. This page had information on what body types to use for specific cuts, how to prepare these cuts, and how to cook the girl so she lives as long as possible.
Was on Tor, browsing da usuals. Go out to eat foods at the Five Guys. Come back. More Tor. Find a picture of me eating at Five Guys.
I posted a comment on a video, and when I went back to that page to watch the video later, someone replied to my comment saying: “That is very astute of you Mr. (insert my last name).
A website advertising a hitman, his services costing increasingly more bitcoins based on the type of target. I don’t remember the exact amounts, but the order went something like this, from least to greatest: civilians, police, politicians, children. Shudder.
It was my third time on the deep web and I was just looking around at sites. I found this one guy’s home page and on the sidebar, I saw a link that said: “For journalist and people new to the deep web”. I clicked on it hoping that it was interesting and helpful information. A new page opened and a picture started to load. Thank god for my slow internet because all that loaded was the head of an old Asian man with blood on his chin. I quickly closed the tab before the rest of the image loaded. To this day I wonder what the whole picture was but at the same time am thankful I didn’t see it.
On a scale of 1 to holy sh*t, how creeped out are you? Also, if you’ve ever been on the dark web then let us know in the comments below about your experience.
