10 Photos That Prove The Praying Mantis Is The Most Badass Insect On Earth

10 Photos That Prove The Praying Mantis Is The Most Badass Insect On Earth

Blog
googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DTAT_ATF'); }); When it comes to the animal kingdom, the undisputed champion is the sloth (in my personal opinion, anyway). But what about when it comes to insects more specifically? I would like to nominate the praying mantis for the title of "Most Badass Bug."They might not seem like much at first glance, but they're scrappy and they fight creatures much bigger and stronger than they are (and often win). Just have a look at some of these photos and videos. I think they'll make you understand my logic. When a praying mantis sets its sights on you, you don't stand a chance...especially if they catch you off guard, like this poor lizard. Reddit /...
Someone Thought It Would Be A Good Idea To Build These Insane Statues

Someone Thought It Would Be A Good Idea To Build These Insane Statues

Public statues have long been staples of human civilization. They represent our greatest accomplishments and tell the world that we were here and that we did something. However, in recent years, statues have taken a turn from classically beautiful to downright bizarre. Whether these 20 pieces fall into the category of "art" is up for you to decide. 1. This is actually a hyperrealistic statue of a man walking in the snow. Seriously unsettling. Reddit / ShowingErin 2. Run! Just run! Reddit / Chartreuse_666 3. This one's in the Philippines. I don't want to know what's happening here. Reddit / SharkRancher 4. Superman doesn't fly so well anymore. ...
No Matter How Much You Look At These 20 Photos, You Can’t Explain Them. Seriously, #3… What?

No Matter How Much You Look At These 20 Photos, You Can’t Explain Them. Seriously, #3… What?

The 20 images you're about to see are beyond explanation. These completely random and bizarre photos can best be summarized by one phrase: "You just had to be there." It would almost be impossible to deduce why things happened they way they did. Why is that man covered in bread? Is that chimp drunk? What is going on here? (Prepare yourself. Things are going to get a little weird.) 1.) Hey, tigers like hot tubs, too. 2.) ... I can't even... 3.) I think he had a rough night. 4.) Rough day? 5.) Tigger crossed a line. 6.) Is that Bird Man? Or Bread M...
These Ghost Hunters Triggered The Rage Of A Restless Spirit

These Ghost Hunters Triggered The Rage Of A Restless Spirit

Blog
When it comes to ghost hunting, the most interesting spirits to track down are the angry ones. Sure, they might be capable of injuring you, but they also tend to be the most active. Take, for example, this footage from the 3 Girls In The Dark paranormal team. The group explored the famous Villisca Murder House in Iowa late last year and captured some bizarre footage. In 1912, the house was the site of a brutal murder that left all six members of the Moore family and their two young guests dead. It was after midnight when one member of the team recited the phrase that evidently inspired Reverend Lyn George Kelly to commit the murders. After the women said the phrase aloud, one of their cameras started shaking violently. That ghost wanted nothing to do with being taunted by the living....
What This Guy Saw In North Korea Is Absolutely Insane…I Don’t Get It

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

Blog
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 a few of his pictures when he came across something weird. This picture was taken at Taesongsan Revolutionary Martyrs' Cemetery, which is on the top of a mountain facing the country's capital city of Pyongyang. Reddit / redseedit While enjoying the view, redseedit...

Vantablack Is The Darkest Material Known To Man, And It’s Pretty Trippy

Blog
What some people don't realize is just how amazing the breakthroughs of modern technology really are. This could have something to do with the fact that many groundbreaking inventions and discoveries seem too far-fetched to be real.An excellent example of this phenomenon is known as Vantablack, and it's listed by The Guinness Book of World Records as being the world's darkest substance. This is Vantablack in all its glory. When it was introduced, the company that manufactured it from tiny carbon nanotubes reported that Vantablack can absorb up to 99.96 percent of the light that contacts the material. Wikipedia I know that sounds fantastical, but after seeing a few videos of Vantablack in action, I definitely believe those claims. The ma...

Turns Out, That Giant Snake In Maine Is Actually An ANACONDA

This summer, the city of Westbrook, Maine, has been in the national press for a series of clues left around town pointing to the existence of a legendary giant snake. The most intriguing clue was a 12-foot-long skin discovered by a local river. When we last wrote about this terrifying beast, the skin had been sent in for testing to see just what the heck it really was that Westbrook was dealing with... googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DCBP_ATF'); }); This week, the results came back...and suffice it to say, things aren't looking good. The snake skin belongs to an anaconda, a rather large and deadly species typically found in South America. iStock googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('...

People commonly attribute the phrase "I know that I know nothing." to Socrates. We'll never know if Plato wrote that down correctly, but it still holds true. More of us need to acknowledge just how little we know about the world. It can be a wonderful thing to realize, that we are all learning new things every day. Like these 17 little known, but awesomely strange, facts. 1.) After getting struck by lightning, you can be left with this weird tattoo pattern. It's called a "Lichtenberg figure," a temporary mark that consists of fractals. 2.) Lobsters don't seem to age. They don't die of old age, but external factors. 3.) Neil Armstrong went th...

Exploring A Condemned Duplex Is Creepier Than You Might Think

For many people with an adventurous streak, there is nothing more interesting than exploring abandoned homes and buildings. There's just something about the experience that really gets your blood pumping. It's so interesting to spend time in these spaces and wonder what happened inside those walls before they succumbed to disuse and neglect. Sure, everything is broken down, but you can usually walk away and go about your daily life as usual afterward without being too disturbed. Unless, of course, you're Redditor Asherbaby. Asherbaby and one of his friends decided to explore a condemned duplex located directly behind the friend's house. Reddit / Asherbaby The exploration started innocentl...

Shark eggs are among the strangest eggs in the animal kingdom. In fact, they often don't look like eggs at all. Usually, they look like rocks and turtle shells. Needless to say, they're pretty bizarre, which is part of what makes the following video so disturbing. Just watch what happens when this guy starts cutting away at a weird-looking object with some scissors. (source: Reddit)Didn't see that one coming, did you? The first time I watched it, I cringed so hard waiting for something terrible to happen. I was pleasantly surprised. Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/shark-egg/
