Before we even begin, a word of caution. Don't ever be compelled to go or even browse the dark web, it consists of hitmen, criminals, drug dealers etc. and we'd recommend you to stay away from it. Before we tell you what twisted things you can find on the dark web, we should brief you about it. We're gonna explain the dark web via an analogy of an iceberg.
Have a look!
This part is called the surface web; it consists of all the websites which are openly accessible to the public. Websites such as Google, Facebook, Twitter etc. are here.
This part consists of websites/information which is withheld from the general public. The government classified documents, user's personal information etc. are here. Wikileaks is the best example of the deep web.
This is by far the most twisted part of the internet and it consists of almost anything you can and can not imagine. Top hackers, hitmen etc. operate at this level.
Since the websites are hidden from the public, you'll need a special browser called TOR browser. Why TOR? TOR browser can mask the IP address of the user and hence the anonymity. Now that we've briefed you about the dark web, let us tell you what lies there.
This is by far the most twisted part of the Dark Web. A red room is a room where a human being is tortured and killed. The kill is broadcasted via a live stream in what is a deeply encrypted, members only area. Usually, the people in the chatbox recommend what they want and the executioner obliges. People from Reddit claim they saw executions ranging from via table saws to giant anacondas.
You thought cannibalism doesn't exist among humans? Think again. A Reddit user baconboyloiter reports "One day we ran into the deep web. The most disturbing site we found was a comprehensive guide for cooking women. We're not talking about a short joke here. This page had information on what body types to use for specific cuts, how to prepare these cuts, and how to cook the girl, so she lives as long as possible."
Child pornography is probably the most twisted and the lowest humans can go, but the dark web is full of these people. Under no circumstances does any porn site endorse child pornography but there's no stopping on the dark web thanks to the anonymity.
Unfortunately for the sane part of humanity, people's fetishes don't end at child pornography, in fact, far from it. A Quora answer reveals that options are given with regards to which animal to molest which is purely disgusting.
Want to get acquainted with the Illuminati cult? You got it! The Flat Earth cult? Yep, it's there. The Nazi cult? Yep, you'll surely find them there too. The truth is, the various chat forums in the deep and dark web let people with the same belief system to unite without judgment. What Joker said? "Give a man a mask....."
Since the dark web is inundated with illegal activities, it would be stupid on someone's part to think that things like these won't be sold. Passports and fake Id's occupy a large chunk of the transactions which goes on in the dark web. The payment is barely via gateways like PayPal, instead, bitcoins are used as a medium of exchange.
Want to get someone assassinated? Look no further than the dark web. You can hire a hitman via the dark web, they charge a fee depending on the type of target ie. is he/she a civilian, journalist, politician etc. Hitmen are the last people we'd ever want to contact in our life.
Drugs are the biggest reason people fall into the clutches of the deep web as drugs are easily accessible here. In fact, you can find all types of drugs on the dark web and the sellers even get a rating on the basis of their product. The most popular website was The Silk Route which was later shut down.
