The world is an incredible place with a rich history and countless phenomena.
We could be better off with some things, shocking and surprising as they are, being a mystery to us.
Here are some cool things about the world that you probably haven’t seen before (or wish you hadn’t seen):
#1. I am officially fascinated with owls
Albinism is a rare genetic trait that causes animals to lack pigmentation on their bodies and gives them red eyes. While you’ve seen some albino animals before, these huge red eyes terrify me.
#2. Never underestimate the power of the wind.
This tree is located near Greenough in Western Australia, where the wind blows so powerfully and constantly that trees that are not protected by any windbreaker actually grow sideways.
#3. The first step to buying a neon sign
In the past, street vendors were the main way that companies could sell products to companies. This is what a neon light salesman carried in his briefcase to show potential clients in 1930.
#4. In a very, very distant Galatia …
These leftover pieces from a filming location for the original Star Wars movie, Episode IV: A New Hope, were left in the Tunisian desert. The location was used as Luke, the main character, home.
#5. The coolest version of ‘Twinning’
It is well known that the gene for having twins crosses family lines, so it only makes sense for a pair of twins who married another pair of twins to have children who are twins.
#6. Not your typical Grand Canyon.
This is a photo of the Grand Canyon found in Greenland, which is slightly cooler than Arizona. Its impressive length (more than 466 miles!) Was first discovered in 2013 under a giant ice sheet.
#7. Meet the first therapy dog in history.
This is ‘Smoky’, a Yorkshire terrier who lived between 1943 and 1957 and served in WWII. He conducted 12 combat missions, 150 air strikes, and received eight stars for his service in supporting the troops.
#8. I never realized how small the Earth is compared to the Sun.
Outer space can be very difficult for a person with no experience in astronomy to conceptualize, so this scale model of the sun vs. The planets in our solar system really add perspective.
#9. Imagine that children’s games were still so tall …
This photo of children playing at their local playground was taken in 1912. Compared to the shorter and much safer options available to children in most parks and schoolyards, these really compelled you to be a good climber. .
#10. A sundial that offers readable time like a digital one.
This sundial was 3D printed with grooves so that depending on the height of the sun, the light coming in would create readable time like a shadowed digital clock face.
#11. This is a photo of the Everglades.
Approximately 200,000 alligators live in the Everglades, but more than 1.5 million live in the state of Florida alone! Despite popular beliefs perpetuated by the movies, alligators do not eat humans.
#12. These are ‘Vietnamese moss frogs’.
This species of frog is predominantly found in northern Vietnam and southeastern China. Their fur, which resembles moss on a rock, acts as camouflage from predators, and they curl up into a ball when they are afraid.
#13.This is the rarest pasta in Italy.
Their filindeu is a handmade Italian pasta that only three women in the world know how to make. It’s so difficult and time-consuming to make that it wasn’t available to the public for 200 years.
#14. Well, this statue looks terribly horrible.
This statue completed by Marco d’Agrate depicts Saint Bartholomew, an early Christian martyr who was supposedly skinned alive. If you look closely, you will notice that it is not a robe that he is holding, it is his faded skin.
#15. These are prosthetic fingers.
Most of us have seen a prosthetic leg or arm in our lives, but prosthetic fingers are a relatively new medical invention and have yet to reach popular use.
#16. This is not your average school trip.
This photo was taken in 1959 in Modena, Italy. To go to school these children had to crawl across the river using this cable and pulley system.
#17. This looks a little tight.
The Corinth Canal is a narrow passage that connects the Gulf of Corinth, a deep inlet of the Ionian Sea, with the Saronic Gulf of the Aegean Sea. It is 6 and a half kilometers long and only 21 meters wide at sea level.
#18. This is a very tough tree trunk.
The Old Man of the Lake is an 11-meter-tall tree stump, most likely a hemlock tree, that has been swinging vertically in Oregon’s Crater Lake since at least 1896.
#19. Natural camouflage at its best.
Thousands of years of evolution have made animals extremely well suited to survive in their respective habitats. Owls not only have 360 ° vision, but many also blend in almost seamlessly into their environments.
#20. This cave dates back 10,000 years.
This 10,000-year-old carving of a giraffe was found in the Sahara desert. Actually, it is believed that the Sahara desert used to be a lush green land, which means that giraffes probably lived in the area back then.
#21. The tunnel of German cherry blossoms.
Located in the city of Bonn, Germany, this street lined with Japanese cherry trees is one of the most beautiful in the world. The trees were gifted to Germany by Japan in the 1980s, but they have a short flowering period, so this is a very rare sight.
#22. This is the largest eagle in the world.
This is the harpy eagle, a bird so large that it looks like a person in a bird costume. It is the largest and most dangerous raptor in the rainforest.
#23. A temple cut directly into the rock.
This is the Kailasa Temple located in Ellora, India. Completed in the 8th century AD. C., the entire structure was carved directly into the rock and is the largest rock-cut temple in India.
#24. This computer store has been intact since 2002.
Since the beginning of the digital age in the 1990s, technology has changed at an extremely rapid rate; in fact, it’s hard to believe that the store’s contents were the latest models less than 20 years ago.
#25. This is what the inside of a passenger plane looked like.
It’s shocking to see compared to today’s row of seats that we’re used to seeing on airplanes, but this is what the cabin of an airliner looked like in 1930.
#26. An artist’s interpretation of Pangea.
Scientists believe that all land masses on Earth were originally connected as one large continent – Pangea. An artist attempted to show where today’s borders would fall in Pangea before the continents parted.
#27. To help you understand the terms you hear on medical TV shows
Medical scans are a non-invasive technology that allows doctors to get a better idea of what is happening inside your body. All the different scan names can be confusing, but this diagram shows the difference between each.
#28. Penguin egg whites stay clean when boiled.
I don’t know who decided to boil a penguin egg, and I don’t particularly want to know, but it’s interesting that the egg whites of different birds don’t actually turn white when cooked.
#29. The lately famous “Killer Wasp” being cooked alive by bees.
Killer hornets, which recently made their way to North America for the first time, are apparently not loved by bees. In this photo, they are trying to swarm and overheat this hornet to kill it.
#30. This helmet is from 490 BC
This Corinthian helmet and human skull are relics from the Battle of Marathon, which took place during the first Persian invasion of Greece in 490 BC. C. The helmet survived with the skull of the warrior inside.
