One unintended consequence of the digital age is the constantly-growing library of photos on our smart phones, laptops, and social media accounts. No longer tethered to expensive rolls of film, we're able to snap until our heart's content.
But in going back through all the shots that didn't make the Facebook cut, you might find something interesting lurking in the background. From creepy stalkers hiding in the shadows to couples caught red-handed, these 20 pics are guaranteed to make you laugh, totally freak, or at the very least squirm a little in your seat...
Although it's difficult to ascertain the relationship between the two girls, the good money says that they're sisters and not exactly on the best of terms.
From the crazed look in the brunette's eyes, you can bet that a serious catfight went down after this selfie got saved.
Just who or what is that red-faced menace lurking in the tropical foliage?
We're pretty sure that's either the devil himself, one of his supernatural henchmen, or at the minimum a crazy masked weirdo. Any which way you slice it, we just want to yell to the young lady in the picture, "Girl, get outta there!"
While we wish we could say we knew who took this picture or even where the image was taken, it came to us without any description or backstory. And because of the shot's questionable pedigree, we think it's all the more interesting.

Up next, we've got a super spooky snapshot from a storage room! This one is a real creeper, y'all...
While it might take you a few minutes to notice Robert Halford, once you do, you won't be able to un-see him. When his sister Janice opened the door to her parent's backyard storage shed, she had a very strange feeling.
About that time, her brother Rob jumped out from his hiding spot and scared the wits out of Janice. He had been waiting in the cramped darkness for fifteen minutes.
Truth be told, moms and dads of the modern era are under-appreciated, over-worked, and perpetually stressed. Well, apparently these moms have figured out exactly how to chill, enjoy some well-deserved Starbucks, and let their hair down.
Although their method is unconventional, they do seem to be having a lovely time. Ladies, just don't let Child Protective Services get ahold of this picture!
When Abel Hernandez decided to attend a costume party at his brother's frat house back in 2005, he knew he was in for a good time. But when he looked at all the crazy photos the following afternoon, this one stood out as particularly entertaining.
"I was really hung over, but this one made me laugh out loud," he said. "What's funny is we didn't even know she fell when we were taking the pictures. It was so loud in there."
Alex Poe, Ethan McDaniels, and Parker Sorensen were having a blast at their freshmen mixer costume party. But out of all the costumed University of Texas students, the plant with the bad attitude really made the picture.
"We're not sure who that guy is, but he looks like one pissed-off shrub," said McDaniels.
Up next, a dad gets busted with something a little extra in his shopping bag...
Unfortunately for boob-loving dads everywhere, most shopping bags are made of razor-thin, see through plastic these days. And in this case, it doesn't leave much to the imagination.
And while the photographer was ecstatic to get a shot of this professional athlete with his son, the true thrill was realizing what else the photo had captured.
Eric Banta just wanted to make a copy of his old high school graduation photo to upload to his Facebook account, so when he quickly snapped this shot and hit send, he didn't think anything of it.

And next, a high school football game becomes a "hands on" experience...
From the drunken, hand-holding couple in the foreground to the enormous cup of Tecate beer, this photo just screams alcohol-induced debauchery. But leave it to the chick in the background to take college-age flirtation to the next level.
We can't decide if her male companion is happy, just wasted, or really uncomfortable.
When Bill Gates decided to retire and focus on his philanthropy, he left the day-to-day operations of Microsoft to Steve Ballmer. It was this guy's lack of vision that allowed Apple and Google to dominate the 21st century of tech.
And speaking of Apple, from this epic photo fail it's clear that even Microsoft royalty know which platform is superior. From a public relations perspective, you would think someone would have had the temerity to stick a piece of duct tape over the glowing Apple logo!
But this next one is definitely our personal favorite...

Up next, a politician literally takes a photo of his killer...
Filippino politician Reynaldo Dagsa was taking a picture of his daughter, wife, and mother-in-law when he captured something else: the visage of the gang member who was about to end his life.
Sadly, Dagsa passed away at the scene, but his three relatives were not harmed.
