The internet is a fascinating thing. Where as once we had to rely on word of mouth to start, then spread, urban legends, we can now find them on thousands of websites across the globe.
My favorite is, of course, The Slender-Man.
In 2009, a forum called Something Awful held a contest in which user could submit real photos that had been altered to include something supernatural.
Despite the fact that there were a number of truly creative submissions, one concept quite literally rose to the top.
Submitted under the name Victor Surge, Slenderman made his initial appearance.
Described as being an unnaturally tall, and slim, man, this supernatural creature also possesses unusually long arms that supposedly help him to capture helpless victims. He always wears a dark colored suit and has a blank, white, almost featureless face that truly strikes fear into the hearts of anyone unfortunate enough to catch a glimpse of him.
