hello everyone, i was recently looking around the Internet for weird stuff until i stumbled on something:

Black Eyed Kids

they seem to be kids with totally black eyes, people who encountered them say that there eyes mimic emptiness and they get the feeling of unexplained terror and fright when they look in the kid's eyes

the kids seem to come in numbers to a lone driver in his car and they ask if they can come in and that they are lost

they also seem to come in a mature form, asking for your phone if they can use it.

here is the link to the whole story: http://mysteriousuni...-in-the-making/

what do you guys think, i don't know what to think about it, can't say if is fake or plausible

thanks, cata

Black Eyed Kids were created by Texas reporter Brian Bendis in 1998 on Usenet's alt.folklore.ghost-stories.

It was creepypasta before there was creppypasta.

Nothing more than an internet scary story that became an urban legend, i.e. Slenderman, smiledog.jpg, etc.

Fortunately not much "thinking" needs to be spent on this story.
Whenever I see wierd stuff like this I research for the "fake" behind it, sort of like Scientology and Ron Hubbard.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

It is a hoax. It was started by a story a guy wrote in '98.

It seems a little uninspired and lacking as an urban legend set of creatures, you could say beware The Crimson Eyed Old Hags that descend from streetlamps if you look outside of your bedroom window between 3am and 4am and it'd be much creepier!

Overhead the albatross hangs motionless upon the air and deep beneath the rolling waves, in labyrinths of coral caves, The echo of a distant tide comes willowing across the sand and everything is green and submarine...

I dunno theres something awfully creepy about children with black eyes coming up to you asking for a ride, or to use your phone. and showing utterly no emotion at all.

Of course it sounds creepy, I certainly would rather avoid such an encounter! Though it just reminds me of that weird kid off The Grudge :D I'd find it creepier if it was kids with a big hook for a hand that stood beside your bed or something lol.

Just did a quick Google check and you can get the contact lenses for less than $20.

So the next time someone counters your explanation with "those things cost hundreds of dollars.  kids can't buy them" you now know what to say.

A BEK bunny - don't let the fluff and fur fool you, look at the eyes....

I just needed to say.. That is one of the cutest bunnies ever!

As far as BEKs go, I think what is so frightening to so many is just how unnatural it seems.  The whole "the eyes are the windows to the soul" idea, so black eyes = no soul, no soul = unholy/menacing.  From all of the supposed accounts I've read, and I've really read more than I can count at this point, no one has ever just said to one of them, "Dude, what's your deal?  You planning on trying to kill me or what?  And, what exactly ARE you?  Would you like a hot pocket and a frosty beverage while you explain?"  IF these accounts are real (I doubt that these folks have had encounters and I believe that they just want to spin a yarn.. or most of them, anyway), I get that they're "scared", but c'mon, these "encounters" seem to last at least long enough for someone to recover his or her faculties, once they are through peeing themselves.  I don't believe in them, but they are definitely fun to ponder.  Brian Bethel would probably be uber surprised and/or happy to see versions of his initial creation not only still around, but increasing in number.  Or maybe he does know, and the spreading of the legend pleases and/or amuses him.  I bet he wishes he had put his creativity to better use and just wrote a novel.  He'd be more successful and a darn sight richer.  BTW, Brian Bethel is still alive and well and apparently he has a blog for anyone interested.  However, he hasn't published any new entries recently.  There is a rather in depth posting titled A bit about ... me   And if you read that, you'll see how his interests may have given birth to BEKs.  Check it out here:  http://brianbethel.com/
