Top Ten Weirdest Websites
The term “weird” is rather subjective and relative, because a weird thing, event, or behavior may be the norm to someone else. In the past, weird things were more of a taboo and often not spoken about outside of a society. Now, thanks to the Internet, where geographical limitations and boundaries disappear, weird stuff has popped up all over the place as the Internet has become a haven not only for odd or eccentric people, but for curious people as well.
Weird stuff is not bad; in fact, to many people, weird things are rather entertaining, amusing, or arouse curiosity. If you are one of the many who loves weird stuff, check out this list of the weirdest websites on the net.
1. Weird Encyclopedia
If you are looking for a website with lots of collections of weird things, events, and stories, Weird Encyclopedia is the best place to explore. The website may seem rather simple in terms of its layout, but once you read the contents, you will forget the site’s 90s design. The site has countless explanations of paranormal experiences and occurrences like UFOs, vampires, ghosts, the Loch Ness Monster, and even Bigfoot. There is also a “True Stories” section there where people can submit their own weird personal experiences.

2. Bash My Ex Dot Com
There are quite a number of people who had trouble with their former partners, and therefore bash them through this website. It is quite entertaining to see names of people who you may or may not know, plus contact information, who have done something bad enough to make their former partner post information about them for all to see. If you have a really bad ex, and you want to find a way to get even, go to this website and join the bashing. You can also post a picture on the site as well.
Break is an online video streaming website somewhat similar to YouTube, only much more focused on certain topics or genres. Just like YouTube, users are allowed and encourage to upload videos (even their own) that are rather strange and funny. Accidents, bloopers, crazy tips, and much more can be found in this website. Once you watch one video on this site, you might have difficulty stopping. A word of warning, though: don’t check out this website when at work, unless you have time to spend several hours watching videos.

This site is creepy but quite amusing to people who want to know when they are going to die. Deathclock asks for basic information like your date of birth, age, BMI (Body Mass Index), gender, and if you are a smoker or not. Based on this data, it “calculates” the day you are supposed to die. The result appears in a small pop-up window that has a cute little counter that counts how many seconds you have left. Obviously this is not a real death clock because nobody knows when you will really pass away. It’s just odd and entertaining to watch how may seconds you have left.

5. Area 51 New Mexico
This is one weird humor website that contains various things that many will find weird yet funny. If you’re bored on a Sunday afternoon, this is a great website to explore to find wacky and outrageous things to do.
6. The Flat Earth Society
At first, you may think this website is an elaborate joke, but after reading through their forums, you will find out that the majority of the members there really believe that the earth is flat. Talk about weird people. The Flat Earth Society is a group of serious individuals that firmly believe that the earth is not an oblate spheroid, but a flat world. They say that photographs of the earth from space are simply made using a computer, and that NASA conspires with the US government, as well as other organizations around the world. If you believe the world is flat, or you just want to test your debating skills by proving the earth is round, join this website’s forum and have fun proving your point.
