The owners of a vegan cafe in the country of Georgia say group of neo-Nazis started throwing grilled meat at patrons. It happened over the weekend at the Kiwi Cafe in the capital city of Tbilisi.
The cafe was holding an English-language movie screening when the group came in and started the violence.
They pulled out grilled meat, sausages, fish and started eating them and throwing them at customers before starting to smoke, which is forbidden at the cafe.
When the owners tried to get them to leave a fight started and spilled into the street. The cafe owners say neighbors, who are not happy with a vegan establishment being located there, joined in the fight.
The attackers left before police arrived although the cafe owners say some of their workers were brought to a police office for interrogation.
The owners of the cafe in the former Soviet republic say there has been another recent incident where the group had been asking questions about whether foreigners, gays or other members of the LGBT community had frequented the cafe.
The incident comes amid growing concerns about far-right nationalism in the country. In April a group of masked youth took to the streets to protest immigration and Islamization.
Polybius or the Cursed game
Polybius was a supposed arcade game made in the 1980s that was quite popular. Except it had some...adverse affects on players like causing headaches and other symptoms. There is some conflicting theories about what the gameplay of Polybius actually entailed. Even more eerie was the fact that BZP Lovers would then download the data from the game. It was quite addictive (though to be fair a lot of games are like that) and had very long lines just to play it. This went on for a month until all traces of the game were removed from the arcade.
Sounds fishy right? Well there may be some truth to it. For one thing in the 80s federal agents did investigate quite a few arcades (because of gambling not aliens). And there are actually reports of gamers getting sick from playing video games though due to playing them for a really long time. However please keep in mind that this does not confirm that the legend is true. Instead it just gives us some precedent or whatever.
To be totally honest I'm skeptically of this actually existing but I'm optimistic. I have a thing for straight up weird things so it would be cool. However I will only change my stance if someone brings me an actual working cabinet and after playing it I do experience said side effects.
Please note that the reason for the data collection was for army training and to test the player's mental capacities. This is very similar to the plot of the 1984 moive The Last Starfighter in which a human is recruited to join the starfighters because of his mlg mad skillz at vidya gaemz. So the legend might just be someone liking the Last Starfighter too much.
Real or not it has left an impact on culture as it most famously appeared in an episode of the Simpsons and the Goldbergs as a background gag. If you'd like to see more of this weird stuff let me know in the comments or pm or smoke signal or morse code or whatever. I'm going include some more (read better links) so you can do your own research.
Remember I am only stating the information about the urban legend. I do not support or deny their existence, I only seek to post what is known.
