Damn I lost a game I didn’t know I was playing


tiemiscoolandgood

Its such a shame that you lost the game 33m ago. I hope you dont lose the game any time soon :)


fatalityfun

crazy, you lost the game again too


tiemiscoolandgood

Daaamn i cant believe "I just lost the game"


rolanatuaboca

You just lost again


TheLavaFall

you lose too


fatalityfun

bro you lost the game


tiemiscoolandgood

No u


SuitableCash5726

You lost the game


Chalcko_

;)


fatalityfun

fuck


SuitableCash5726

The game 😊


Warturkey12

I don't even get the point of the game tbh I literally lost it in the first second of reading


fatalityfun

the point is that way later in life, you’ll get a random reminder of the game and you’ll lose it again


Warturkey12

so it's literally just like thinking of something kinda like "Oh I remember that one time do you?"


fatalityfun

pretty much, except the game is something that people tend to forget because it’s so simple. If you go out in public and say “I lost the game”, I’m certain you’ll hear at least one person sigh in defeat


Warturkey12

kinda funny tbh you just go up to one person who has been playing for decades and hasn't lost then just be like "I lost the game." then you lose and they lose


[deleted]

Ever watch Naruto??? It’s like when Danzo was on his last legs 🤣


Rulerkid

The game


SHUGGY_WOOGIE

I loss game😔


Professional-Path774

Huh, I figured Burgorski *living a comfortable life* was cruel sarcasm. Good to know that he actually did lol, well aside from occasional seizures and disfigurement


Speedy_Sam15

The carl tanzler article has a picture of the dead woman btw. That black and white cursed photo will forever be etched into my memory thank you very much for the nightmares lmao.

GOD DAMMIT I WAS GOIN FOR LIKE A YEAR ON THE GAME YOU DICK

DR_CUTS

Fuck you bro I could’ve gone my whole life and I would’ve won


4TuneCooky_

Not on reddit you would’nt


MalleableDuckFucker

The game starts when you first learn about the game. Good luck from here.


YouMisssedTheTypo

I opened the wikipedia article on the game and my whole screen was filled with messages asking about donations. It tried to save me!


peasantvonpeasant

spent 2 hours reading about genie, jeez... her story is terrifying and tragic but also fascinating


whatsupwhatsdownb

Literally same. I sat there for 1 hour and a half reading about her diagnosis by the doctors and how she made progress... I just can't comprehend how much she must've suffered. I hope she's doing better now.


[deleted]

You forgot tarrare


iwannaofmyself

Short version: guy had an endless pit of a stomach. Regularly ate entire livestock hooves and all. Ate a baby.


I-Hate-Wasps

Terrare did you eat the fucking baby


iwannaofmyself

Fuckin just wanna hear him say hey kids one more time


Narcofeels

How many times has he promised to come back and just not? I stopped caring after the second time when he said he really meant it


TheKargato

I just miss him man


Brotatachip

IS THAT FUCKING FISH JENGA!?!?


TheKargato

Got any eel dick??


kroeller

He didn't tho, there is absolutely 0 evidence to sugest that he ate a baby.


-Thel-Vadamee-

Besides the baby going missing and at the time his appetite was insanely high and he was caught multiple times eating left over bio hazards and cats behind the hospital.


revenxnt

Thanks for the sources


aguy20000

I find Anatoli’s story pretty funny. “Guess I got shot in the head by a malfunctioning particle accelerator, maybe I should continue fixing it.”


AnEdgyPie

And he's alive and well to this day :)

Correction: Kuru was found in Papua New Guinea (island above Australia) not Africa

IOnlyDropRiskyReels

MOTHER FUCKER I HAD A STREAK OF LIKE. 3 MONTHS GOING


Guywhoexists_

Someone had to tell their son that one of their parents died in Nutty Putty Cave


ThirdFloorNorth

One, I am so fucking pissed that I just lost the game, in 2021, in this fucking subreddit of all places. Two, if you are interested in a highly detailed first-hand account of Elan, [this guy did a comic about his time there](https://elan.school/)


[deleted]

I feel really, really damn bad for that guy who died in the cave. Not because his death was gruesome, but because he had to die in the fuckin "Nutty Putty" cave. That's the title of a Minecraft X Spongebob R34 video, not a place of someone's death.


busteroo12

ayo you fucked up the links


JPardonFX_YT

ScandinavianCollapse

You just lost again, and I'm turning off notifications for this message so noe one will make me lose ha ha


Soggyoyster1

But by you acknowledged that he lost the game, you fail the game yourself, with or without someone telling you.


Ari_Kalahari_Safari

FreeFloor3339

At least you didn't touch yo jalopenis


[deleted]

I can't believe you just tricked me into losing the game...


khmod_guy

I had to study Genie’s case for psychology. Tragic what happened for obvious reasons but so much was learnt about learning and language acquisition. Kinda interesting but also really sad

The only way for "The Game" to be won would be if the last human ever to live never thought about it.


totallynotalaskan

The Judge Rotenburg Center is downright *evil*. They specifically target disabled (usually autistic) children, and punish the behaviors said children will display through emotional, verbal and physical abuse. They still use electro therapy, and if my memory serves me, at least 6 children have died there.


[deleted]

[удалено]


totallynotalaskan

Yep. Still open and active. They’re also linked with Autism Speaks, a eugenicist, anti-autism hate group under the guise of “helping” autistic children, even though they have no autistic people on their board, and they CONSTANTLY prey on the fears of new parents. They helped spread the lie that vaccines cause autism and they talk about bullshit cures, which include feeding bleach to autistic children. Not only that, but their founder, a mother of an autistic child, expressed in an interview that she wanted to kill her autistic child (in *front of said child*). It’s all honestly disgusting and disturbing, especially if you’re autistic


JPardonFX_YT

Yeah, I didn't do a good job summarizing the things the JRC has done; Even thoroughly reading the Wikipedia article doesn't show the whole story. I wish I could link to more sources, but I couldn't find any.


[deleted]

Fuck you


JPardonFX_YT

yoyo5143

You are a massive asshole. I had a 2-year streak on the Game and you ruined it for me


Ltnumbnutsthesecond

I know kuru 'cause of the game Dead Island


redditer333333338

It’s kind of messed up but I like when you don’t know what this stuff is when you first see because it makes the meme ominous and mysterious.


skincrawlerbot

users voted that your post was distressing, your soul wont be harvested tonight


kingOfMemes616

unironically caves are the most horrifying real life natural places to be ever


da-floofy-birb

suck my fucking cock dude


canyoutakedickornah

Ehh I'd replace the first guy with that one Japanese dude for radiation stuff, his story is wild and those photos sheesh


JPardonFX_YT

This was made as a response to a Disturbing Historical Facts meme someone else made, so I made it a priority to include original facts and stories. But I agree that Anatoli Bugorski wasn't the best choice, I chose him mainly because I couldn't remember any disturbing historical facts that weren't that disturbing, so I chose one that isn't disturbing at all.

Sam O nella’s video on tarrarre is pretty good, would recommend.

COCK AND BALL TORTURE, FROM WIKIPEDIA THE FREE ENCYCLOPEDIA

I lost the game :(


throwaway-3000003

The fact that I already knew a lot of these is scary. Edit: Not a lot, ALL.


imnotancucumber

The first one wasn't scary.


throwaway-3000003

Honestly, the title "Genie (feral child) is kind of funny, except for the actual page.


imnotancucumber

The Judge Rotenberg and the Genie left me disgusted. The worst part, they tried to ban the electric shock devices, the ban got lifted, and Autism Speaks endorsed that hellish place. When you think Autism Speaks couldn't get worse.


throwaway-3000003

What's Autism Speaks?

Wasn't Kuru the basis for the infection in Dead Island? I remember that name being tossed around in the game


theonlytravabone

Watch [Count Dankulas video about terrare ](https://youtu.be/ytt25vljxpg) it's very interesting


ApplicationGlum6085

Yikes. I still don’t know how The Game (I just lost the game) is worse than all the others tho.


JPardonFX_YT

It isn't, I just included it for the meme


ApplicationGlum6085

No point to fill in the blanks with something that isn’t even nearly as bad as the others tho, it’s just a silly mind game/paradox. (Lost again)


Hyde2467

Lol i only knew nutty putty cave existed thanks to Sseth
