Inside An Abandoned Hotel, Once A Famous Place For Swingers In The ’60s

This hotel was once crowded with swingers back in its days.

When a reddit-user identified only as ZeRoCoo1 spent a day exploring an abandoned hotel, empty since the 1960’s, freaky things happened. Eerie Satanic symbols spray-painted on outside of the worn-down building show it has had multiple visitors, and cracks through the floors and walls are the biggest marks mother nature has left on the old hotel.

ZeRoCoo1 took pictures of a crumbling hotel in Rio de Janeiro. The hotel was called The Hotel São Conrado, and was quite known in the 1960s. It was also a famous Swinging Hot Spot during its peak. Indeed, it was a glamorous place during its busy days.

But today, it’s debatable what has been lurking in the empty halls. Bullet-hole ridden walls and burnt-out cars lay on the inside, as do the symbols of the Brazilian Red Command drug and arms trafficking cartel. However, so do the materials used in a witchcraft ceremony of ‘macumba’ often used to inflict pain, physical harm or sometimes, in the most rave of circumstances, death. These symbols of something otherworldly are spread throughout the once beautiful hotel, now marking it with a creepy atmosphere and a sense that something is lurking around the corner.

The hotel’s driveway – Would you go in for a closer look?

I hope the person who drew this satanic symbol isn’t still waiting nearby.

Looks as if Mother Nature had her go at the hotel too – a crack caused by an earthquake.

You’ll Never Guess What’s Hidden in Walls Across the World.

Some walls around the world contains a hidden message.

Aram Bartholl, a media artist from Berlin, has been leaving a special trail from Paris to London for the whole world to discover. Called ‘USB dead drops,’ these USBs have been installed in walls of stone or other public places, hidden in plain sight, waiting for a connection. This project has been ongoing for over 5 years, people in a multitude of countries have gotten on board and started installing them in their hometowns.

Full of unknown information, dead drops work by connecting to a computer - generally a laptop - and downloading the mystery files. What are the files? It’s hard to tell without finding them yourself.

Aram Bartholl, a rather unique Berlin conceptual artist whose works show how digital inventions change our everyday lives, installed the first five Dead Drops back in 2010, in New York City. If you’re more one for mystery, keep your eyes peeled in the streets of New York, the pavements of England and the bars of Indonesia, as these little information-bullets are hiding in the most unlikely spaces all throughout the world. Just imagine the amazing things that could be revealed!...

Everyone of us has a dream and even though some aren't fortunate enough to follow the path towards it, they still carry with them the hope that someday they'll make that dream happen.

Bruce Porter is one of those dreamers yet what he only wants are simple things in life. His lifelong dream is to live in a tiny house on a remote island which led him to buying a small piece of land off the Maine Coast on Ragged Island. He spent the next 30 years hoping that someday he could build his dream home yet they remain nothing but dreams.

Meanwhile, his daughter Alex Scott Porter grew up and may have gotten the passion and inspiration from her father when she decided to be an architect. She made her dad's dream happen by helping him build his dream home, a beautiful tiny house which is only 550-square-foot that qualifies for the Tiny House Movement. The airy interiors and high ceilings of the house make it more spacious despite its size. The energy solutions are quite remarkable as well....

Guy Discovered a Mysterious Door in the Floor of His New Apartment

Would you continue living in this apartment?

This guy immediately moved into an apartment in England without checking it first. He was happy to get a good deal on the rent, but didn’t realize the great value he got till he moved in and discovered something pretty amazing yet very creepy at the same time.
