7 Creepy Urban Legends That Happen to be True

Cracked has posted the fifth in a series of urban legends and the true tales behind them. The stories are all plain weird, like the guy in Japan who started noticing food in his apartment was disappearing.
Was he losing his mind? Being messed with by a shy poltergeist? To find out, he set up a series of spy cameras around his house. The next morning, he ran back the footage on the camera and that's when he saw it. A strange woman crawling out of a cupboard like it was the TV in The Ring. And if you think that's terrifying, imagine what happened inside his stomach when, at the end of the video, she crawled back into the cupboard. The one that was just a couple of feet away from where he was standing, watching the video.

Presumably in an effort to maintain bowel control, the man assumed the woman was a burglar who was only temporarily hiding in the cupboard, and had since left. He called the police, who pointed out that all the locks on his doors and windows were undisturbed. There was simply no evidence whatsoever that anybody had broken in -- in other words (cue dramatic strings) the woman had been in the house all along.

I got my dress caught in an escalator one time. Ripped it up real good, twisted me around and backwards and I nearly fell hands down on the grate. The store ended up paying for a new dress. I stay off those things, now.

I had a friend that was on an escalator and it broke apart and she fell down between the steps and broke her leg.

And I had a friend get shocked by lightning through her phone during a storm. She doesn't hear so well, now.
