The Wal-Mart stores in America may contain items made in China, but don’t forget there are actually Wal-Marts in China (mind=blown). However, after seeing the kinds of things they sell at Chinese Wal-Marts, well… let’s just say it’s very different from the ones I’ve been in.
1.) Crocodiles (ready for roasting, it seems)
4.) Orange juice and cooking oil combos
6.) Bulk, Wal-Mart brand liquor
11.) More chopsticks than you could ever imagine
13.) “Great Value” beef granules (that look like candy?)
15.) Anti-bacterial underwear for men
I’m not entirely sure why the Chinese population requires anti-bacterial underwear or freeze-dried reptile bits… but I’m not going to question it. It is Wal-Mart after all. Source: Imgur I just know I don’t feel so bad for buying chicken broth in bulk at my local Wal-mart.

Modern advancements in medicine and technology has resulted in more educated people throughout the world. It doesn’t mean that everyone is qualified to be a doctor, but in a country like the United States, many people at least have common sense. Throughout history, humans have always had a thirst for knowledge. We have attempted to find solutions to our problems since we began walking upright. However, there were times when our efforts were there, but the science and technology could not find the answers to the most common problems… So, as a result, these strange and downright creepy items were created. Some were used for medicine, others for torture and even more for social reasons. One fact remains the same: they are terrifying.
1.) An 18th century witch’s chair, meant to kill the user via blood loss.
2.) 17th century poison cabinet.
3.) Victorian post-mortem photography stand.
Here, you can see a child’s body held up for a photo with one of the stands.
4.) Blood-letting fleams.
5.) 16th century male chastity belt.
6.) Early 1900s carnival side show prop, a mummy head.

(H/T Ebaumsworld) It seems that almost anything from a certain time period in history is inherently creepy. If time machines were real, you shouldn’t use one to go back in time. After all, you might end up chained to a strange torture device or, even worse, wearing a chastity belt. Can you believe these were actually used? Share this creepy list with others!

There are many stories of objects that are reported to be cursed or haunted. Many of these terrifying objects have brought great misfortune to their owners manifesting themselves in financial and health woes. But what’s even worse, is that some of these items claim to be linked to that which is demonic, with owners claiming to have seen demons, ghosts, and frightful sights. Are these claims real? Some would argue their not. However, when you read the stories behind these 25 terrifying objects that are genuinely linked to freaky paranormal events, you may just become a believer.
20. The Terracotta Army
In 1974, seven peasant farmers in China were digging a well for their village when they accidentally uncovered the 2,200-year-old Terracotta Army. A great find for China, not so much for the farmers since the findings caused the Chinese government to claim the farmer’s lands and to destroy their homes in order to properly unearth this army. Some claim that this calamity was a curse from the terracotta army.
15. The Basano Vase
Legend has it that this silver vase was made in the 15th century and was given to a bride on the eve of her wedding. However, on this night, the bride was murdered with the vase still in her hands. The vase was then passed down her family line but anyone who claimed it died shortly after. It took many deaths before the family finally hid the vase but it resurfaced in 1988 with a note that said “Beware…This vase brings death.” When the Basano Vase was auctioned however, the note was not included in the item description and the pharmacist who bought it died within three months. There would be three more deaths before finally a desperate family begged the police to take it.
10. Robert The Doll
Once owned by Key West painter Robert Eugene Otto, Robert the doll is said to be possessed by evil spirits. Supposedly, the doll was a gift to a rich man by a Bahamian servant later killed in black magic and voodoo.
5. Blarney Stone
While kissing the stone is thought to be good luck, removing any part of it has been said to lead to incredibly bad luck, such as loss of employment, financial ruin and even health misfortune.
