1. What A Shovel Looks Like After Planting 90,000 Trees
You would think a shovel would look exactly the same no matter how much a person uses it, but that is not the case. This is the difference between a new shovel and one that was used to plant 90,000 trees. That's like an entire forest of work for one shovel.
Over time, the metal warps because it is put under so much pressure, and it stretches out. We know shovels aren't the most interesting things, but it is pretty weird that something that is made to be sturdy also wears down over time.
2. The Roots Of A Tree In A Graveyard Wrapped Around A Skull
This person must have had a splitting headache in the afterlife because this ball of tools was found inside a decaying skull in a graveyard. Tree roots will grow around whatever is in their way, and they decided to grow inside of a skull that was in the ground.
How did the roots grow through a casket? Or was the body just placed in the ground? The tree must have thought the skull needed a brain. That is the only logical explanation. How did the skull not crack open, and how did anyone find this? Why were they digging up graves?
3. What It Looks Like To Swing A String Of Glow Sticks With Burning Steel Wool At The End
This looks like something you would see at a music festival because the lights and sparks are mesmerizing, and the sparks are slightly dangerous. This person randomly thought to take a bunch of glow sticks with burning steel wool and swing it around his head for this cool photo.
It looks like he is opening a portal to a different dimension, and aliens are about to come through and real havoc on the planet. Sir, have you not seen The Avengers? You know, inviting aliens to the planet is a horrible idea and only causes damage.
4. When Your Phone Vibrates As Your Are Taking A Photo
There is nothing worse than thinking you took a great picture of the city skyline, and then your hand moves and the picture comes out blurry. Sometimes even if you have a steady hand, your phone will vibrate, and the picture comes out wonky like this.
Why did someone pick that moment to text this person and ruin their great picture? It looks like someone used the stretch filter on the skyline as if they were trying to make the buildings look skinnier, or give them more curves like people do to their bodies.
5. When You Leave A Whole Coconut In The Freezer
Most people don't buy whole coconuts because they are too difficult to crack open. However, someone mastered the art of opening them and left them in the freezer overnight to find out what happens. We didn't know we needed this, but we are intrigued now that we saw it.
Who knew there was so much liquid inside a coconut? We thought that there was only a little bit of liquid inside, not enough to create a whole ball of ice. We can only imagine how much harder it was to open a frozen coconut.
6. When A Black Shirt Gets Bleached By The Sun For A Few Years
Have you ever left something in the sun, and the color begins to fade? Imagine if you left something in the sun for a few years, the color would completely disappear. This person had a crumpled shirt in their car for years, and over time, the sun-bleached the shirt.
This actually looks really cool and like something we would wear. Tie-dye is such a popular trend, so this is something he can wear instead of throwing away. Who knew that your car could make trendy clothing if you leave it there for long enough.
7. A Fully Bloomed Artichoke
When you think of artichokes, you probably think of delicious food that is difficult to cook, not beautiful purple flowers. If people didn't pick artichokes to cook, they would bloom into these gorgeous spiky flowers. Next time someone is buying you flowers, tell them to pick up some artichokes.
These look like something you would find on a mountain and then soak in water for a magical tea that makes you younger. Have you ever seen a color that instantly makes you happier? That is how this bright purple makes us feel.
8. When You Throw Water On A Grease Fire
Everyone knows you are not supposed to put water on a grease fire, but we are sure people have wondered what happens. When you are told not to do something, you are probably curious why people tell you not to do it. Instead of doing something dangerous, we are here to show you what happens.
When you pour water on a grease fire, it makes the fire bigger, and the vaporized water can carry grease particles and spread the fire. You are also not supposed to move a grease fire because it can burn you easily. The best thing to do is smother it or use a fire extinguisher.
9. When Tourists Don't Touch Bamboo For A Few Months
There are bamboo forests where people like to visit, and they carve things into the bamboo. People think that bamboo is always scratched up and partially brown in the wild, but that is not true. While everyone was in quarantine, the bamboo in front grew next to the other stalks, and it looks so much brighter when it is untouched.
The bamboo looks much healthier without all the carvings, and these tourist spots should tell people not to touch the bamboo. We don't know if it hurts the stalks, but it definitely looks much better without all the touching. Why do people ruin everything in nature?
10. A Fully Polished Coconut
We didn't know we needed this image in our lives, but we are glad someone took the time to do this and post it on the internet. When you normally see a coconut, it is brought and hairy, but someone took the time to polish one, and this is how it turned out.
At first, we thought this was a chocolate egg because no one is used to seeing coconuts like this. We also thought coconuts were round instead of egg-shaped. It is so shiny you can see yourself in it. Do you think it's easier to open now that it is smooth on the outside?
11. When A Bear Breaks Into Your Car
Although this looks like the aftermath of a horrible car accident, it is actually what a car looks like after a bear breaks in. Sadly, bears can't go to jail, so this one destroyed the car and got away with the crime. It's not like bears need to drive, so why did he break into the car?
They should have arrested the bear because you have to do the time if you do the crime. He bear-ly got away because they couldn't paw-sitively identify him. He must have been looking for a getaway car after he broke into the person's fridge.
12. When You Blink Faster Than The Shutter On Your Camera
It looks like his reflection is showing his inner demon, but he just blinked faster than the camera shutter, and somehow the photo turned out like this. How fast does this child blink to be faster than a camera? It's pretty creepy to see his reflection doing something different than his face.
They were possibly taking a panorama picture, and that is how his blink was faster than the camera. His soul is looking and wondering why his parents are letting him use the stove and a hot pan.
13. When You Heat A Marble Over A Flame Then Immediately Drop It Into Cold Water
Marbles are already interesting without doing anything to them, but this person decided to take it to the next level. They heated a marble over a flame and then dropped it into cold water, and it looks like it was about to explode.
We don't recommend trying this at home because the marble can explode, which could be very dangerous. This person got lucky, and nothing terrible happened, but with our luck, it would explode, and we would lose an eye.
14. A Decade-Old Play Dough Container That Grew Crystals Inside
When you were younger, you probably had play dough, and after you grew up, it was either thrown away, or it sat in a box in your parent's basement. Well, you might want to dig up those old playdough canisters because they will have some special surprises inside.
After going through a box of childhood memories, this person found a decade-old play dough canister that had crystals growing inside it. This looks like something you would see on Jimmy Neutron, but it is just a rock-hard ball of old clay. Would you throw it away or keep it?
15. Refilling A Soap Container With Clear Soap When It Still Had Old Soap Inside
While this might look gross to some people, it kind of resembles a lava lamp or jellyfish to us. When this person refilled their soap dispenser, it had a little bit of the old soap left at the bottom. When they poured in the clear soap, it mixed in a cool way.
Some people have dirty minds, and they might think this is something disgusting, but it is just innocent soap. If the old soap were pink or purple, people's first thought would also be that it looks like a lava lamp.
16. A Mosquito Got Stuck Between The Printer And The Pillow Case In The Factory
If we saw this on a pillow, we would never buy anything from that company again. A mosquito got caught between the printer and the fabric of this pillow, which left a print of it, and that is disgusting. Who knows what else was flying or crawling around in this factory?
This would bug us if we got something home only to open it and find the mosquito print. At least it wasn't a cockroach or a rodent, but it is still really gross. Hopefully, these people asked for their money back because no one should have to pay for this.
17. When The Storm So Intense It Picks Up And Moves The Road
Storms like hurricanes or tornadoes can do some severe damage. This storm was so bad that it literally picked up the road and turned it to the side. We don't know how this is possible, but a self-driving Tesla would be very confused going down this street now.
While some people believe that it was a hurricane, others think the road was moved by a coyote looking to catch a roadrunner. Aren't roads supposed to withstand wind and other environmental factors? The storm must have been powerful to move this large of a chunk of road.
18. A Soggy Stump After A Hard Freeze
When wood gets soggy and can't dry, it usually starts to rot, and the tree dies. When this tree was wet and went through a hard freeze, all the water came out, and it looked like Elsa from Frozen had touched it and turned it into this thing.
This happens because of a fungus growing inside the tree as it rots. It sounds much grosser than it is, but it created this beautiful thing that looks like hair or cotton surrounding the tree. We would have never known this happened if it weren't for the glorious people on the internet.
19. When A Hair Gets Caught In The Zipper
If you have long hair and you are wearing a jacket or shirt that has a zipper, these two can be the bane of your existence. Hair always gets caught in zippers, and it is painful when it gets pulled out.
Most of the time, we lose the hairs that get caught in the zipper, but someone pulled one out that was trapped, and it left the imprint. It looks like it was caught in one of those twisting gears rather than a zipper. This could be the hottest new hair trend; zipper crimped hair.
20. When Wood Gets Burned With A High Voltage
When wood burns at a high voltage, it looks like it is forming a tree. Was the tree electrocuted, and the lightning created a mini tree? Or someone purposely did this, but we don't know how they safely used high voltage to carve wood.
It looks like those Chinese canvas drawings that are done in ink and have so many intricate details. It is unique, but we wish we had a video of how it was made because that seems very relaxing.
21. What It Looks Like When A Sphere Of Aluminum 1 Cm In Diameter Hits A Block Of Aluminum At 15,000 Mph
The European Space Agency was testing hypervelocity impacts in space and how to protect spacecraft, and during one of their experiments they used a small aluminum ball to it hit a surface at 15,000 mph. This is what would happen if space debris hit a spaceship.
These impacts are dangerous because they can cause destruction to the aircraft, which would be fatal for those aboard. People can't survive in space without special suits, so if the aircraft gets a hole in it, they are done for.
22. What Happens When Lightning Strikes A Beach
While walking down the beach after a storm in Scotland, this person stumbled across a hole where lightning struck the beach. We knew lightning was attracted to water, but we didn't know it could strike sand and leave burn marks.
If you saw this, would you run in the other direction? It looks like a small meteor landed on the beach, and the aliens came out, destroyed the evidence, and found a home to plot their world domination. Although we know it was just a lightning strike, we are still a little suspicious.
23. An Apple And A Banana After Sitting For 6 Months In An Office Locker
When these people were told the office was closed because there was a lockdown, they didn't think it would last very long. However, the office turned out to be closed for six months, and they came back to find rotting fruit in their locker.
If you have ever wondered what fruit looks like after six months, here is your answer. How were there not a million fruit flies swarming around these things? It looks like these were stuck in an incinerator because they are so black and burned.
24. Someone Put Dish Soap In A Fountain
If you want to pull the ultimate prank, take a few drops of dish soap and put them in a fountain. As the water flows, the thing will fill with bubbles and suds and continue to expand the more soap you add. Someone must have added an entire bottle to this fountain.
The maintenance people had trouble containing the foam and keeping it away from the busy road. The fountain was expensive, and it took a while to get rid of all the bubbles and repair it. If you try this, don't get caught.
25. When Fog Gets In The Way Of The Windmill
Usually, when you look at wind turbines, you can see them spinning, but you don't see air moving. On foggy days like this, you can see how powerful the turbines are and how much wind they create. You see their effects from the wakes they create in the fog.
These are things we would never think of, but someone thought to capture it on camera. Who knew they needed to see the wakes created by wind turbines? Now that we know, it gives a better perspective of how much energy they create.
26. Birdseed After Going In The Microwave Looks Like Popcorn
Would you ever think to put birdseed in the microwave? Probably not, but this person did it to sterilize the seeds, and they ended up popping into what looked like popcorn. We wonder if it tasted the same as popcorn or if it was not as good.
It looks exactly like the remnants at the bottom of the bag, so you would think it would taste the same. We are sure the birds would like it just as much as the regular seeds. It would be like a special meal for them.
27. What It Looks Like When Lightning Strikes A Flagpole On A Golf Course
The last place you want to be during a lightning storm is in a pool or on a golf course. As you can see, the lightning strikes the course and spreads out through the ground, so anyone standing there would also get electrocuted.
There have been plenty of freak accidents when people were on the golf course and lightning strikes, and they get severely injured. With all the open space on golf courses, golfers are at a higher risk of being electrocuted when there is a storm.
28. What It Looks Like When A Pipe Bursts On A Basketball Court
Although it is probably not sanitary, it looks like it would be fun to swim on this basketball court. After a pipe burst on the court, it was flooded with water, and it made the court look wonky like it had waves.
This would probably destroy a basketball court, but it looks cool for the picture. It's really hard to tell how much water is there. Is it two feet or two inches? That's the interesting thing about water, you can't see the truth from a photo.
29. When You Spend A Lot Of Time In The Water And Your Index Finger Has A Severed Nerve
We all know that your body starts to get pruney if you stay in the water for too long. If you have a severed nerve in your finger, it apparently doesn't get pruney like the other ones. The finger doesn't get pruney because if the nervous system isn't functioning, it doesn't tell the blood vessels to shrink.
Only half of his finger is waterproof. Although having a severed nerve is not a good thing, it seems like it would be useful not to get pruney fingers if you stay in the water too long.
30. White Roses Change Color When You Put Food Dye In The Water
31. What Happens When No One Trims Ornamental Cabbage
You might have seen ornamental cabbage outside, and wondered why people would use that as landscaping decoration. However, it looks much prettier when people stop trimming it and let it grow upwards.
It looks so much more interesting instead of looking like a cabbage growing out of the ground. Who really wants to look at cabbage? Most people don't even want to eat it. The ornamental cabbage is supposed to be more beautiful, but we have different opinions.
32. Proof That 8-Year-Old's Hands Are Disgusting
We all know that children are crawling with germs, and this picture is proof. When an 8-yer-old put their hand in a petri dish of agar, this is what grew. Look at how many types of bacteria were on this child's hand. We would not want to be near a child's hand until they thoroughly washed it.
How can they gather so much bacteria on one hand? Having good bacteria on your hands is normal, but this petri dish should be treated as a biohazard. Someone get this kid a bottle of purell and a hazmat suit because they need to learn some rules about cleanliness.
33. What Happens To Lemons And Limes In Water
You might not have noticed this before, but when you put lemons and limes in water, the lemons will float while the limes sink. It might seem strange because they are both citrus fruits with similar characteristics, but they react differently in water.
Why are lemons much more buoyant than limes when they look almost identical, just different colors? It is because the rine of the lemon is more porous, while the lime rine does not have the same material. Limes also have a higher density than water.
34. If You Use The Same Spoon In Coffee For 45 Years
If you have ever wondered how a metal spoon would wear down over time, here is what it looks like when the same spoon is used every day for 45 years. The tip of the spoon went from being rounded to almost flat from all the stirring over the years.
We usually switch the spoons we use with each cup of coffee and rotate them, but this spoon must have been very special because she used the same one every day. In everyone's lifetime, they will eat 1/8th of a spoon, which seems like a lot of metal for one diet.
35. When Blue Hair Dye Gets Through A Broken Glove
You should always wear gloves when you dye your hair, whether you are bleaching or adding color. Hair dye can stain your skin for weeks, depending on how much gets on you and how long it is left there before washing it off.
This person's glove had a hole in it, and they didn't realize it before it was too late. It looks like their hand will be stained blue for a few weeks, It's like they got bit by a smurf, and they are slowly turning into one. At least their hair probably looks good.
36. Water Flowing Through The Cement For A Long Time
Over time, things wear down, especially things that have water flowing on them continually. When rocks are in rivers for years, they get smoother over time, like that, the cement wore down to reveal and the bottom layer where the water was flowing.
Underneath all the cement was another layer of rocks. Over time, those will probably get smoother from the water. It would be interesting to see this same spot in another ten years. It would probably have more of an indent from the water.
37. When Water Freezes On A Spinning Wheel
It must have been freezing outside for the water to instantly turn into ice as the wheels were still spinning. It looks like these wheels can be weapons to pop other people's tires if you get too close to them while driving.
Where ever this person lives, we want to stay far away from there because we don't do well with those extremely freezing temperatures. It would be much more aesthetically pleasing if the ice wasn't covered in dirt. Then it would be like a piece of art.
38. If You Put A Highlighter In A Microwave
Sometimes we think that people get so bored at home that they are willing to try anything even if it is dangerous to their health. Who would think to put a highlighter in a microwave just to see what happens? We would be too nervous about toxic fumes or breaking the microwave.
This person had no fears and decided to see what happens when you heat a highlighter. It actually turned out pretty cool. It's like one of those gender reveal smoke bombs that gives off pink or blue depending on the sex of the baby.
39. Charcoal From A Hot Grill Burned Through The Trash Can
This one is kind of obvious and most people should know what happens when you put something hot in a plastic container. However, there are people who forget to use their brains after a day of barbecuing in the sun. These people didn't realize that heat and plastic don't go well together.
After grilling, someone decided to take the hot charcoal and put it right in the trash bin because that seemed like the right thing to do at the time. Instead of letting them cool off, they threw them away, and it melted a hole in the garbage can. Most people would have seen that coming.
40. What Happens When Lightning Strikes Asphalt
We didn't know anything happened when lightning struck asphalt until now. It looks like a cluster of mushrooms covered in cement. You can really find anything on the internet these days. We would never have thought about what this looked like until someone posted it online.
You can really learn something new every day just by scrolling through photo galleries. We would be nervous to touch it because it is like something from another planet. Also, was the asphalt still wet? Because that would be annoying for whoever has to repave the spot.
