Strange Video Game Urban Legends Every Gamer Knows About

The world of video games is indeed an interesting one. There are so many people playing, so many different games that it is really hard to keep track. Nevertheless, there are some games that have created a name for themselves, a culture around them, their own slang, netiquette and folklore. Because every gamer relishes in the full experience of the video game, he has probably attempted to complete all quests, and missions, and inevitably, discovered one of the following video game urban legends.

5. Squall is Dead

The reason why some people will never be able to play Final Fantasy without being dissapointed is Final Fantasy VII and VIII. These two series were definitely the best of their series, way ahead of their time, and with powerful story-lines and characters. One such character is Squall, the quiet, and extremely powerful protagonist, who many believe to have died because in the end of disc one, he is impaled with an ice shard by the main boss, Edea.


From there on, the game stops being a realistic fantasy game, and becomes an over the top suprearealistic games. Many believe that Squall actually died, and everything on disc 2 is nothing but a dream that he has when life flashes before his eyes.

4. Fallout 3 Predicts the Future

Fallout 3 is one of the most cherished open world role playing games. Because it is so enormous, it should not come as a surprise that there are still many things undiscovered, even by the most serious gamers. The urban legend every gamer should know about it, is that there is something in the game that may predict the future. Apparently, the post-apocalyptic game can foresee the future in the real word, by using morse code and hidden messages within the game’s radio station.


Nevertheless, many suspect that you can actually hear a DJ on the station rambling off such cryptic phrases, which are then followed by morse code that can be interpreted as dates. Whether this video game urban legends is true or not, is left for you to discover.

3. Minecraft: Herobrine

What makes Minecraft so bloody brilliant is its simplicity. All you have to do is mine different materials in the world, and use them to build structures, buildings and monuments that your mind can come up with. Nevertheless, certain players have reported bizarre happenings in their game.


It seems that mysterious buildings have a tendency of appearing and dissapearing, and there is also a white-eyed person, which some think is the game’s protagonist. There has been a lot of heated discussion on the subject of Herobrine, some believe he is merely a glitch, while others actually think that he is a ghostly manifestation of the game creator’s deceased brother.

2. Berzerk

Berzerk is one of the classic epic arcade-era games that some people simply couldn’t get enough of. It also had one of the most iconic boss battles in Evil Otto, where you had to destroy a simple smiley face. Another record held by Berzerk is the first video-game to have been linked to the death of a person.

And it didn’t stop there! Jeff Dailey died after playing Berzerk in 1981, and in 1982 another 18-year old boy, Peter Burkowski, also died while playing it. He took a few steps back from the game, and collapsed. Both causes of death were ruled heart attacks.

1. Morrowind Mod jvk1166z.esp

Out of all the video game urban legends out there, the one about Morrowind is the strangest ones. Personally, I am not a fan of Morrowind, but many gamers still consider it the best game in the Elder Scrolls series. This is probably because it has a huge open world, and wonderful community where users mod the game, add characters and armor. As a matter of fact, there is a very macabre mod in Morrowind, that could actually drive players insane. It first appeared three years ago, and people thought it was a virus at first. When players start the game all the characters are already dead, and standing still drains your life. If you die from standing still, your new character will be revealed to you, he is referred to as the assasin. 


He has long arms and legs that can bend like a spider’s and if you pay close attention to him you can see him scurrying on walls. At night, all the NPCs would come out and when you try to interact with them they say Watch the Sky. There is also a new dungeon, which has a locked door, that nobody has managed to open. Many players have tried, and after seeing The Assasin so many times, they have actually lost their minds. Download the mod at your own risk.

So Who Else Was Born Outside the Borders of Traditional Conception?

The subject of the immaculate conception represents the fundamental building stone of Christianity. History also registered a few claims of virgin birth or human parthenogenesis, a birth that occurs outside the borders of traditional conception, which, needless to say, implies exactly what everybody knows it implies, with a few very young exceptions who didn’t reach the subject in school yet. History, also, recorded other births which cannon be labeled as normal, if you’d look at things from a cold, scientific and modern perspective. Go to a doctor and tell him you got your child out of a feather ball that fell from the sky and he will soon transfer you to the looney bin and the child to the social services day care. Now, when we say history, we also imply mythology, because let’s face it, we weren’t there when Horus was born, so everything we can do is to study old texts and archives and believe it or not. While providing a documented history of the claims of human virgin births should be interesting, it also implies a lot of research and other started some projects. We might get involved in this too, but for now, let’s see who else was born outside the borders of traditional conception and by this we mean other prophetic or divine figures present in world’s religions and cultures.

1. Horus, the Most Known Egyptian God

Now we know his mother was Isis and his father was Osiris, but when it comes to the paternity test, things get a bit complicated. There is no solid proof of what happened, because you know, very very ancient Egyptian tale, but some speculate that Osiris was killed by Isis jealous brother Set. The killer smashed and bashed poor Osiris body on the battle field and Isis used her powers to gather the pieces, put the husband back together and conceive a son with him. Now if you read historical documents, you will see that this post – mortem melodrama is told in different ways: she either revived completely the husband and conceived Horus traditionally, or she revived her husband (who lacked his … godly instrument) and built him a godly instrument to conceive Horus. Either way, Horus was not definitely a normal kid coming from this charming family and pregnancy story, but he ended up one of the most powerful Egyptian Gods.

2. Huitzilopochtli, the Aztec God of War and Sacrifice

We’d dare you pronouncing his name, but it seems impossible. It is pronounced something like Weetz-ee-loh-POSHT-lee, but we’ll call him Weetz. So he is one of the most powerful and well known Aztec gods who was born… differently. He had, obviously, a mother (few references about the father, though) and his mother was one day at the temple, being a goddess, and while she was there, a ball of feathers fell from the sky. This goddess had about other 400 sons and daughters (who lived in the sky like stars and whose paternity is yet to be established) so bringing another one to the family wouldn’t have been so odd, if the method of impregnation wouldn’t look suspicious to the 400 bunch, who came down wanting to question her kill her. But just when *it got serious, Weetz broke out of his mother’s womb and slaughtered his siblings. Now that is a one hell of a way to get born.

3. Mars, the Roman God

When it comes to Greek and Roman gods, nothing is impossible in their mythos. Rape, incest, immaculate conception, hate, betrayals and blood shed that would shame even George Martin, those were the daily fun activities. So this guy Mars, who later became the God of War has an interesting story to begin with. Since Romans had a soft spot for Greek culture and myths, they wanted a war god of their own, and since Ares was too Greek for them, Mars gained this coolness aura which made him become very popular, very from the hood, so to speak. But Mars has no father, go figure, or he has a step one at most. Jupiter was the ruler of them all, and he was so badass, he gave birth to his daughter Minerva by himself, while the little progeny spawned out if his godly head. Neat trick, but Jupiter’s wife, Juno, got pissed of her husband going separate ways and decided she wanted a child of her own, without his help. So any normal woman at this point would have cheated with another male figure. But Juno was even cooler than Jupiter and went to another goddess, Flora, and asked HER to help her conceive a child. Put your dirty thoughts away, Flora touched Juno with a magic flower and thus she got impregnated with Mars. Now you can all think about it.

Who else was born outside the borders of traditional conception? We have Qi, a Chinese God who popped up in his mother’s womb after she stepped in the giant footstep of the most powerful god that ruled back then and since he had no Earthly father, he ended up yet another deity. Buddha also has an interesting conception story and if you are curious enough, there are many others more.

3 Iron – Full Foods that Would Increase Even Popeye’s Performance

We all know nowadays that spinach is no longer the miracle vegetable full of iron it can turn the thinnest man into the Terminator version of Arnold Schwarzenegger, but let’s face it, Popeye the Sailor Man, the muscle – packed character lied to us for a very long time. Modern science related to nutrition and chemistry proved without a doubt that the iron content of spinach is quite negligible,  not to mention that being plant – based iron, it is quite hard to assimilate. However, behind Popeye’s world – wide success lies the error of Mr. Erich von Wolf, a German chemist who was studying back in 1870 the nutritional benefits of spinach. The man got distracted one day and instead of correctly writing the iron concentration in spinach – namely 3.5 grams, the chemist wrote 35 grams. This turned spinach into a fabulous and miraculous vegetable and starting with 1929 – the birth year of Popeye – everybody was convinced that spinach contained more iron than red meat.

Popeye was conceived for marketing purposes and boy, did he have success! The super – vegetable together with this unlikely, but super – hero (who could shame even Superman once in a while if they were ever to meet) managed to save the spinach industry, as they sky rocketed the sales of canned spinach by 33% back in the thirties. In 1937, two major events took place: the ones responsible with Popeye and the spinach business admitted to the error of the iron concentration and tried correcting it, with no success whatsoever (people were so in love with Popeye they continued to buy spinach and they couldn’t care less about the error), while in the same time, in the city of Crystal, Popeye received his own statue – a monument in his honor for saving a line of industry.

People still buy canned spinach with Popeye’s face on the label and are still convinced this is the superhero vegetable that turns a child into an iron hero. Without undermining the real qualities of spinach and to honor Popeye as perhaps the best marketer the world of business has ever met, let’s see in short three iron – full foods that would increase Popeye’s performance and stamina even better than spinach.

1. Oysters

While never considered something you could eat every day – mostly because they are quite expensive and don’t belong to peoples’ daily grocery list – oysters belong to the category of iron – full foods, with 12 mg / 100 grams – a tough competitor for spinach’s 3.5 grams. Oysters are healthy in various other ways, as they represent a powerful source of vitamins (almost the entire B Vitamin series) and a lot of minerals.

2. Liver

Much more accessible to peoples’ diets, especially if they suffer from anemia, liver (be it chicken, beef or pig) is the doctors’ first choice of iron – full foods they recommend for a healthy nutrition. Depending the animal it comes from, liver can contain from 4 to 12 milligrams of iron. However, it’s hard to believe you’d see a cartoon character sit down and enjoy some liver saute before going to save the world. 

3. Broccoli

Now this is a miracle vegetable but it should be consumed raw instead of cooked and canned, so imagining Popeye chewing on a broccoli branch is fun, but not plausible. People should eat more broccoli, not only because is one powerful iron – full foods, but because it contains more Vitamin C than oranges (and you know iron is fixed better in the organism when associated with Vitamin C), but it also contains more calcium than milk. It also plays an anti – oxidant and anticancer roles, among others, and it has minerals and biochemicals which makes it the ultimate vegetable. This is something Superman should market, provided he loses his powers somehow…

Popeye does indeed live a healthy life by following his spinach diet and even if he is quite old, he still has the moves and the muscles. However, there are plenty iron – full foods out there that should make it to your table and we are sure Popeye wouldn’t take offense if you add some beans, red meat or tofu to your eating habits.

10 Funniest Instagram Users You Should Definitely Follow

On April 9, 2012, Facebook announced its intention of acquiring Instagram, for $1 billion dollars. Soon after the purchase, the number of users skyrocketed from nearly 40 million to over 150 million users. That’s a lot, especially for a three-year-old social network, which had the good fortune of marrying into the Facebook family. If you are not familiar with the app, we will tell you what it does. Basically, you take photos of whatever it is you want (selfies, food, landscapes, vacation, or anything you think is important), edit it with the awesome pre-installed effects, and share it with your friends. Businesses have used it for raising brand awareness, celebrities as a means of staying in touch with fans, and regular people to simply share their life with loved ones. So if you are new to Instagram, or simply looking for an inspiring person, here are 10 Instagram users that you should definitely follow:

1. Jenna Marbles – @jennamarbles

j m

You might know Jenna from her YouTube channel of the same name. She is a beautiful, silly blonde that loves making fun of herself, while also exposing some pretty rough truths about people. She has been producing Youtube videos for over four years, and at the moment she is among the most popular Vloggers out there. On her Instagram feed she shares the occasional dog pictures (she has an adorable Italian Greyhound and a black little pooch) and the funny Photocombs. Her account is definitely the one to visit if you want to have a good laugh.

2. Justin Bieber – @justinbieber


What would the man-child pop singer be doing in our top 10 Instagrammers to follow list? Well, whether you’re a fan or not (especially if you are not a fan), you should follow Biebs, because this is the place where all the gossip blogs get their juice to mock the teenage sex-symbol. Photos like Bieber “riding” a horse, or looking sexy might have appeared in your Facebook Newsfeed, and now you will be able to see them directly from the source. Who knows, your next photo-manipulation might even make it on the front page of 9gag.

3.  Rihanna – @badgirlriri


Not only is Rihanna one of the hottest singers in the music industry, but she is also the ballsiest, most intriguing woman we have ever laid our eyes upon online. This Barbados sweetheart uses her Instagram to post whatever photo she wants, and there’s nobody out there that can tell her otherwise.

4. Hedgehogs – @darcytheflyinghedgehog 


I had no idea that hedgehogs were so adorable. Good luck this funny Instagrammer came along to teach me the error of my ways. Just look at how cute and cuddly these little creatures are.

5. Chelsea Peretti – @chelsanity

paul scheer

Paul Scheer is hilarious by nature. He is a writer, TV guy, and comedian who loves to turn street sightings into gold mines for laughter on his Instagram feed.

7. Satire Gram – @satiregram


Considering that Instagram is a platform heavily-reliant on visual information, it would sound counter-intuitive for a user to post only written stuff on it, right? Wrong. Satiregram has learned to exploit the magic of Text-only Instagram. He uses clever clichés and well-written jokes to entertain his followers.

8. CashCats – @cashcats


Everybody loves cats, and money, so if you put them together, the only thing that could result would be something awesome. CashCats is arguably one of the funniest Instagram accounts you could ever dare follow.

9. Ke$ha – @iiswhoiis


The pop singer and songwriter Ke$ha is definitely very strange. As we all know, she loves to party, so her Instagram account is full of surprisingly funny photos, including one in which she is dresses as a giant ding-dong. Oh, and in case you didn’t know, she took a selfie of herself while peeing, so there is literally nothing more embarrassing that she could surprise us with.

10. Ludacris – @itsLudacris


Have you ever wondered what the life of a rap-star could be life? If you did, then you should definitely follow Ludacris on Instagram, assuming you can keep up with it.

Famous Little People With Huge Luck in Tall Women

According to the National Institute of Health, dwarfism refers to a person with a height of 4 feet or under, while there are over 200 genetic forms of dwarfism exist, with achondroplasia being one of the most common forms of this illness, “which results in an average-sized trunk, shortened arms and legs and an enlarged head“. There are many people in this world presenting one form or another of dwarfism and if you are thinking famous and badass Peter Dinklage, then you are right, today we are going to talk about famous little people with huge luck in tall women and striking movie careers in Hollywood.

Verne Troyer

Verne is famous all around the world for his personification of concentrated pure evil Mini-Me from the Austin Powers movies, but you also spotted the big man in business in movies like Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone or The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus. Small sized but huge personality, Verne won the heart of former Playboy bunny Playboy Genevieve Gallen and married her. Among the most famous little people with huge luck in tall women, Verne is also known for his acts of bravery when he gets a little tipsy, not to mention his name is associated with wild parties and bad behavior.

Danny Woodburn

You know he is an one – man show and a special breed of entertainer only by looking at his resume, comprising the movie industry, television, stage and live shows. You may probably remember him best in Seinfeld (one of Kramer’s special friends), Mirror Mirror, Conan, Death to Smoochy or Employee of the Month. This superstar is also the lucky husband of Amy Buchwald, a woman twice his height, but their relationship seems to work just great.

Gary Coleman

You can’t have a list of little people with huge luck in tall women in Hollywood without mentioning late Gary Coleman, an actor quite famous in his youth, a man quite troubled in his adult years and the victim of a nonsensical house accident that took him away from us back in 2010. According to IMDB, Gary was THE child TV star of the late 1970s and early 1980s and while his fame faded along the years, he was lucky enough to marry Shannon Price in 2007.

Hervé Villechaize

This actor is no longer with us, unfortunately, but he was one of the most lucky ones when it came to tall hot women to have a relationship with. Hervé’s name is probably best known from James Bond’s movie The Man with the Golden Gun, TV series Fantasy Island or Two Moon Junction. He was married to Camille Hagen and had a long term relationship with Kathy Self, yet another gorgeous actress.

Peter Dinklage

He must be the most famous Imp in the history of cinema and television, as Peter is not only one of the most beloved characters in the Game of Thrones series, but a man with an outstanding career, personality and taste in women. Before becoming an awarded and world – famous actor for his unique interpretation of G. R. R. Martin’s Tyrion Lannister, Peter had a good history with theater and the film industry too. Titles like The Station Agent, Escape Artists or Knights of Badassdom may be familiar to you, but for all it’s worth, our beloved Imp will bring us joy with his part in X-Men: Days of Future Past. But let’s see how lucky he is in the women’s department, and if you take a look at his wife Erica Schmidt – a theater director – you will realize that Peter is a very lucky man both personally and professionally.

If you know other famous little people with huge luck in tall women, please let us know! We are certain that love doesn’t care about genetic mutations or illnesses, and if we take a look at little angry Jackass Jason “Wee Man”, who is a bad boy in his private life just as he is in front of the camera, we also understand that sometime, it’s the size of the attitude that matters and not that of the man’s.
