These Bugs Might Look Weird, But That’s Just Because They’re Living Jewelry

These Bugs Might Look Weird, But That’s Just Because They’re Living Jewelry

Blog
I've always thought bug jewelry was cute. As a kid, wearing things like ladybug stud earrings was always fun, but there's no way I'd wear bug jewelry if the insects in question were actually real. Up until now, I assumed that most people tended to agree, but that's definitely not the case...at least not in Mexico, anyway. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DCBP_ATF'); }); There's a huge craze there for really unusual broaches that are made out of beetles. Makech beetles come from Central and South America, where they are found under logs and caught by men known as los maquecheros.

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.

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

Entertainment
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?

This Cat Cannot Get Enough Of His Owner’s Electric Toothbrush

Blog
Getting your pets to care about their dental hygiene is a losing battle, but this cat is an exception to the rule. There's a long list of hygienic necessities that are normal, everyday tasks for humans, but getting your pets to cooperate in these situations is often a lost cause. I've received my fair share of battle scars while trying to trim my pooch's nails, and there isn't enough chicken-flavored toothpaste in the world to get him to open his mouth wide enough to brush those teeth. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DCBP_ATF'); }); But one animal lover has a much easier time. When this cat's owner turns on his electric toothbrush, the kitty just can't seem to get enough. If only my pets were like this... Maybe if I show this video to my dog, he'l...

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...

What This Guy Found On The Beach Could Be Proof Of Mermaids…Wait, What?!

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DTBT_ATF'); }); When I was a little girl, my sister and I always pretended to be mermaids while we were swimming. We fervently wished they were real and that we could become them, but as we grew older, we obviously accepted the fact that these mythological creatures don't actually exist.However, after seeing what one man found washed ashore on an English beach, I have to wonder whether our world holds way more mysteries than I previously thought possible. When Paul Jones and his friends took a trip to the beach in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, they came across this astounding sight. Facebook / Paul Jones googletag.cmd.push(function() { go...

People Came Across This Monstrosity In Australia And Thought It Was An Alien

I don't know about you, but I'm constantly amazed by the diversity of our planet. It seems like every week I'm learning about another animal that I previously had no idea existed. Though it shouldn't come as a surprise, seeing as there are over 15,000 new species reported every year, I'm still caught off guard by unfamiliar creatures that sometimes appear almost alien-like. These friends definitely know what I mean. When they visited a beach in Queensland, Australia, they ran into something they just couldn't identify. Its appearance was so strange that they wondered whether it was even from this planet. I have to admit that it is pretty freaky looking.
