Can we get a spooky/creepy/paranormal military stories thread going? I'll start.
>Be me, translator with the US Air Force in Iraq, specifically Kurdistan.
>On a tiny Army outpost, only American that speaks Kurdi fluently.
>Boring translation work, next to no combat anywhere near where I'm stationed.
>Get pretty close with local militia guys (one even tries to wed me to his 13 year old daughter)
>They tell me stories of they're lives, mostly about fighting Saddam.
>One night, we were going to a nearby village and stopped for the night.
>To pass the time, we told scary stories.
>I told "Tailiepo", I think.
>Everyone tells pretty decent stories, but nothing 2spooky4me.
>Until the last guy, who tells a story of some militiamen who went out to the desert to only to return demented ghouls.
>His descriptions were gruesome, men who looked like corpses, twisted out of shape, filled with shrapnel, riddled with bullet holes, faces melted from fires.
>But the very worst part, he said, was that they spoke with what I can only translate as "insidious demon voices".
>This shook me a bit, as the stories told before were ancient folk tales. This was modern, recent, within living memory.
>So I did what cocky America military men do when they are frightened; laugh it off.
>I told him it was the scariest story of the night by far, and very nearly spooked me.
>No one else laughed, they looked at me sadly, silently, almost guiltily.
>Finally the story teller told me the words that haunt me to this day.
>"Lieutenant, this was not a story."

Ok, /x/, I have a question. What is the scariest thing you've ever found on the internet (youtube, /x/, whatever) that IS NOT deep web/illegal?
Can be a video, story, blog, anything.

Alarm is rising among Manchester citizens that a predatory serial killer could be roaming the city’s streets. Some 60 corpses have been hauled from local waterways in the past six years.
Rumors of an unhinged murderer dubbed the Pusher, who supposedly prowls the city’s waterways, have gathered momentum in recent years.
Locals remain divided on the theory.
Some dismiss the claims as mere urban legend while others are concerned that a serial killer, who allegedly hurls his unsuspecting victims into the city’s murky canals, actually exists.
Between August 2010 and August 2012, a third of all deaths in UK waterways occurred in the vicinity of Greater Manchester. In addition to the 60 bodies found in Manchester canals since 2008, a further 20 were discovered in local rivers.
Head of psychology at Birmingham City University, Craig Jackson, said he has seen freedom of information requests probing the deaths.
The requests, which were sent to sent to Greater Manchester Police by the Daily Star, asked for details about the scores of bodies found in Manchester’s canals.
Jackson said the number of people who had been found in Manchester waterways was disturbing.
“I’m certainly keeping an open mind as to what’s been happening. I can’t disprove a serial killer,” he said
