The internet can be a great place, but one mother had her fears amplified after asking what disturbing thing people thought she had discovered at the end of her son’s bed.
Just like googling symptoms when you are ill, asking any question on the internet can result in some terrifying answers.
One mother took to asking social media users for their thoughts on an odd discovery she made at the foot of her 7-year-old's bed.
Speaking in the Family Lowdown Tips & Ideas Facebook group, the mother hoped to get an answer to the question of what she had found.
Sharing some pictures, she wrote: "Does anybody have any idea what this could be? It's at the end of my son's bed on the floor," she wrote alongside pictures of tiny dark objects, that look like small eggs, sprawled across the floor near her seven-year-old son's bed.
“Not anywhere else in his room, not in his ottoman bed base or under his bed. Just at the end in one spot (I've spread it out a bit to look). Any ideas, please?"
As can be expected, users began suggesting the most horrifying possibilities imaginable.
“OMG, my skin is crawling – I hope this is cereal as I’m about to freak the freak out,” one Facebook user commented on the post.
"Nope ... new fear unlocked,” another user wrote.
Another user offered up the most uncomfortable possibility. They said: “Definitely tarantula black widow scorpion eggs. Extremely bitey, and they bide their time before they attack.”
Thankfully the mother explained the nature of what she had found in an update.
She noted that the debris had originated from a microwavable heat pack that had burst unexpectedly.
She said that she had vacuumed the area a few days prior and there were no sign of the objects and upon returning to vacuum again they had appeared.
She concluded the objects were from a heat teddy that had burst and popped at the end of her son’s bed.
“I hoovered it a couple of days ago, and it wasn’t there. I went back to hoover again, and it was,” she explained.
“I have now found out it’s from a heat teddy that’s popped at the end of his bed.”
Well thankfully, we can all rest easy not having to worry about sneaky creepy crawlies covertly laying their eggs in our bedrooms tonight.
