These Quotes From Apollo Astronauts Might Make You Believe In Aliens

When Americans first landed on the moon back in 1969, it inspired a wave of excitement about space travel. Many believed that this excitement would lead to settlements on the moon, which would make mankind an interplanetary species. Sadly, that never happened. Could that be because the first men on the moon weren’t alone up there? It sounds like an outlandish claim, but judging by these NASA transcripts from the Apollo missions, there might be some truth […]

Nothing To See Here…Just A Giant Python Swimming With A Small Child

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DTBT_ATF’); }); Most of us would be lucky to live our entire lives without having to swim with a snake, accidentally or otherwise. However, not all snakes are like Sumatra, an eight-year-old Burmese python. Sumatra has been around children and small animals her whole life and she has never killed or harmed a living thing, even if it’s her dinner. Her owner goes ahead and does that as humanely as possible before she eats. In […]

Some species of mantis shrimp smash prey with claws that can literally strike with the force of a bullet fired at close range.

What This Guy Saw In North Korea Is Absolutely Insane…I Don’t Get It

North Korea has a reputation for being the most reclusive country on Earth. Because of that, there’s so much about daily life in North Korea that we don’t know, and what little information we do gather comes from refugees and the very few tourists who are permitted to visit the country each year. One of those tourists was Redditor redseedit. He visited North Korea during the summer of 2012. When he got home, he was going through […]

What This Canadian Funeral Home Does Instead Of Cremation Is Pretty Gross

Cremation is becoming a popular alternative to burials, not just for the price point, but also because of the environmental impact of modern burials. However, even though cremation is better for the environment overall, the process is not without its drawbacks. For one, cremation releases large amounts of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, which is one of the gases responsible for climate change. Because of this, a new body disposal method has sprung up in Ontario, Canada. […]

This Guy Loves His Bees So Much He Took Them For A Ride Around Town…WTF?

Humans are very social creatures, so it only makes sense that we love having pets to care for and keep us company. While it might not make much logical sense to spend thousands of dollars and years of our lives loving a creature of a different species, we do it anyway. For some, though, when it comes to pets, cats and dogs just aren’t enough. They prefer to keep more exotic company. Take, for example, Redditor Texas_Beekeeper. […]

Just When You Thought It Was Safe To Ride Your Dirt Bike On The Train Tracks…

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DTAT_ATF’); }); Remember in school when adults would tell you not to play near train tracks? They did this for a reason: Because trains can be really dangerous if you’re not riding them. (That should go without saying, by the way.) Even though trains are not as popular as they used to be, this piece of advice still holds true. It actually goes double if you’re a dirt bike enthusiast looking to shoot some cool […]
