Don’t Go There!
This linked video talks about “4 Creepy Places You Would NEVER Want To Visit”. Says the poster: “I’m not talking about ghosts and paranormal activity, I’m talking about REAL DANGER, humans with an aggressive and evil agenda.” But then he turns around and talks about places known for ghosts and paranormal activity as opposed to places where you’re likely to get shot. You’ve palmed your nickel, there, pal. Trying to pull a bait-and-switch. There ARE places where it is dangerous to go. But inner city Los Angeles at midnight isn’t what you’re talking about here.
So what are this dude’s “4 Creepy Places You Would NEVER Want To Visit”? The site promises “Here are 4 of those places kind of places!” Alright, then! And “Tonight I’m Gonna Rock You Tonight” is one of my favorite Spinal Tap songs, too!
The places are (1) Centralia, Pennsylvania, aka Silent Hill; (2) the Lalaurie Mansion in New Orleans; (3) the Island of the Dolls in Mexico; (4) the Suicide Forest in Japan.
Right. I would happily go to any of these. I’ve actually been to the Lalaurie Mansion, although I only got to look at it from the street, as Johnny Depp, the current owner, won’t invite tourists inside. And admittedly the Island of the Dolls could possibly prove dangerous, as Mexico City is sadly rife with crime. But as far as being hesitant to visit any of these places because they’re too scary? Please.
