10 impossible and creepiest stories from the Deep Web

10 impossible and creepiest stories from the Deep Web

The Deep Web, the place where everything is possible!
Thanks to Reddit, we collected up to 10 impossible and creepiest stories happened all over the world.

1. No Love Deep Web Alternate Reality Game
I was a part of the No Love Deep Web Alternate Reality Game where we had to do a deepnet scavenger hunt which culminated in me driving to New York to answer a pay phone at 3:00AM. That was cool.

2. Mind the gap
I once found a forum dedicated to sharing recordings of the automated messages that tell you the next stop on trains. People would post the recordings that they presumably made themselves and then they would discuss them.
It haunts me to this day. I have so many questions.

3. We see you
This was back before Google. Web pages were, for the most part, still very basic HTML with Javascript. Hardly anyone used CSS. Only discussion boards and some banking sites had anything approaching mature front-end/back-end combinations. Etc. Early 'Net. Real "deep web" story, not just one about illicit activities on-line.
I was browsing random blogs, Geocities sites, and the like, just going from link to link. Eventually I came upon an odd page - it appeared to be random thoughts from different people, but for the time, it was very well-designed. The messages seemed to be cryptic in nature, like several people trying to pass secret notes. I started through the source, and hidden in the comments of a javascript were various IP addresses.
I gathered all of the IP's in a text file and began enumerating. Some were routers with banner messages I could telnet to - almost all at universities ("Warning! This is a secure system at University of Bla Bla...."). The default Cisco credentials from back in the day worked on most of them, but I didn't poke around. A few of the IP's were web servers with little to nothing on them, mostly Apache on Linux or some BSD, at least one IIS server I can recall.
I finally came upon a web server with a huge directory of HTML files and TIFF images, with a few smaller sub directories containing the same. nslookup returned no reverse records for the IP. A VisualRoute traced it as far as Colorado. The HTML files appeared to be records a psychologist or similar mental health professional would keep. The images were of faxes, apparently of both military and medical nature.
As I browsed from a sub directory back to the parent, at the top of was a new HTML file named something like "1-.HELLO-THERE.html". The time stamp was from right that minute. I opened it, and in plain text was the message "we see you". No quotes, all lower-case. About 15 seconds later the server dropped.

4. I know you
I posted a comment on a video, and when I went back to that page to watch the video later, someone replied to my comment saying: "That is very astute of you Mr. (insert my last name)"
I didn't internet for like a week. my last name is not a common one.

5. DIY stuff
DIY vasectomy kit on SR. it was a kit of weird dentist tool looking hooks and some tube thing. $20.

6. Crazy stuff
A few years ago I went searching for rhino horn for a story, one guy said he had a couple of whole horns he'd sell for six figures. I had to pass.

7. Mind-blowing Experience
Silk Road. Circa 2013. Purchased what was promised as a "mind-blowing" experience. Received a Dust Buster two days later. Strangely, no complaints on my end.

8. Nice guy
Back when IRC was on its way out and P2P was in its infancy I tried to download the sims via a private FTP. The guy I downloaded from found a Trojan on my computer and walked me through how to remove it. I would take a bullet for that dude.

9. Finally some food #1
Found a guy selling carrots. Like, it wasn't code for anything, he was literally just selling carrots for bitcoin. 10/10 would visit again.

10. Finally some food #2
There was a german man selling pretzels, just pretzels.

10 Reasons why Bitcoin is better than PayPal

10 Reasons why Bitcoin is better than PayPal

Today I just found out this website: http://www.paypalsucks.com/ defined as "the world's largest eBay and PayPal consumer gripe site network!"!

It's a collection of stories about account locked, high fees, payment delayed, customer service compliants and much more. 

Briefly I'll post my 10 reason why Bitcoin currency is much better than Paypal system.

1) Fee

Paypal fee are about 3%, but there are case with fee up to 15%! On the other hand, Bitcoin could be zero-fee, but a minimum fee is required in order to include the transaction in the next blocks. With Bitcoin, the amount of the transaction is not relevant: if you send 1 cent or 1 billion’s, the transactions fee is the same (https://bitcoinfees.21.co/).

2) Decentralized

Bitcoin is a decentralized crypto currency. You have everything under your control, there is no bank or entity with the control of the network. Bitcoin made real an automated payment process which doesn’t require you to trust anyone.

3) Open source

Bitcoin is open source. Do I need to say something else?

4) Full control

You are the only owner of your founds, you are your own bank. With PayPal account, users are at mercy of the service providers.

5) Privacy

One main feature of Bitcoin is focused on security. With bitcoin you are anonymous, you don't need to verify your account by linking it to your bank account, you don't need to send personal information. You just need to keep in mind your private key!

6) Versatile

With paypal or other payment system, for example HCE (Host card emulation), you need an internet connection, a smartphone, a credit card etc. With bitcoin you can send transaction offline, via SMS, via mail or even via the indestructible Nokia 3210! This is an innovation and could help people in developing country with lack of infrastructure.

7) No chargeback

With Bitcoin, once a transaction is sent and confirmed, cannot be reversed. If you want your money (BTC) back, you need to ask the output of the transaction (if you know him) to create and sent a new transaction. With paypal, the chargeback is a daily "Feature", lot of Merchant gone in trouble due to bad consumer that take advantage of chargeback feature.

8) Accessible

What if you haven't a bank account, but you keep your money under your bed? You can't use paypal! With Bitcoin, you only need to remember your private key! Bitcoin is fully accessible all over the world, there are no country that can "ban" bitcoin usage and spread!

9) Global

Bitcoin is available all over the world. Paypal is banned on some country. What else?

10) Asset

Bitcoin is a potential asset. If you had purchased 1BTC one year ago, now you almost have the double amount corrispective in dollar. It's an investment. Buy it :)

Monero is becoming more popular thanks to its anonimity and usage on the deepweb.

What will happen in 2017? During the first days we saw a bull trap with the BTC price increasing and suddenly dumping about 200$. Now BTC seems to be stable at 900-920$ and we must wait the 20 january: Trump president and Megaupload 2.0. Infact, KingDotCom announced bug surprise for Bitcoin during the 2017..  let's wait! Keep calm and don't panic!
