These Are Some Of The Creepiest Spots Around The World!

Visit them if you dare!

Our planet is full of places that worth visiting...some of them are amazingly beautiful, some of them offer a unique way of life, some of them are noisy and popular and there are some that can give you the heebie-jeebies!

Keeping that in mind get ready to embark on a journey to some of the more spine tingling corners of the globe!


1. Muynak, Uzbekistan.
This landlocked ship graveyard used to be a huge lake that dried up after the Soviets diverted its water.

2. Centralia, Pennsylvania
Centralia is a real life Silent Hill. It was once a prosperous mining town — until miners accidentally set the mines beneath it on fire. The coal veins underneath Centralia have been on fire since 1962. Today, Centralia is abandoned except for the smoke that pours out of the cracks in the ground. But thrill seekers still visit the ghost town — just probably not at night.

3. Island of the Dolls.
Is so called because it is littered with hundreds of dolls tied to its trees, hung from branches and scattered along its floor. What makes this even more disturbing is that all of this was done by one man, a hermit named Julian Santana Barrera, who according to legend discovered the remains of a young girl who had drowned off shore. Julian found her doll floating in the water nearby, and in memory of her tied it to a tree. He then began to decorate the island with more dolls he found in tips and the nearby canal, which he believed was appeasing the spirit of the dead girl he found. Julian died in 2001, with the prevailing theory behind his death being that he committed suicide after being driven insane. However, the Island of the Dolls is still accessible by boat.

4. The Door to Hell, Turkmenistan
The Door to Hell is a natural gas field in Derweze, Turkmenistan that has been burning continuously since it was discovered in 1971

5.The Catacombs
Paris doesn’t immediately spring to mind when thinking about the creepiest places on earth. But underneath the croissants and cobblestone streets are miles of underground tunnels. And those tunnels are filled with the bones of dead Frenchmen. When Paris’ cemeteries began to fill up, the French simply began to shove corpses away underground. At last count, there were around 6 million bodies stored in the deep, dank passageways of Paris.

6. The Wonderland, China
In Chenzhuang Village, China, about 20 miles northwest of central Beijing, the ruins of a partially built amusement park called Wonderland sit near a highway, surrounded by houses and fields of corn. Construction work at the park, which developers had promised would be "the largest amusement park in Asia," stopped around 1998 after disagreements with the local government and farmers over property prices.

7. Voodoo market, Togo
The Akodessewa Fetish Market may be the best place in the world to fall prey to a voodoo curse. This fetish market has all of the shrunken heads and mummified remains that the indigenous people of Togo need to practice their craft. But it’s not all mummies and parts. There are bones, cauldrons and mysterious potions as well. Tourists have been officially advised to avoid Akodessewa when at all possible.

8. Hoia-Baciu Forest, Romania
THE BERMUDA TRIANGLE OF ROMANIA!
In the heart of Eastern Europe is a mysterious wood notorious for UFO sightings, disembodied screams, and the inexplicable burns left on those who enter.

9. Cincinnati Subway System, Ohio
Cincinnati was a bustling city at the turn of the century. It was decided that the city needed a subway system. However they ran out of the money for the project as it was being built. So most of the stations and tunnels were built, but nothing was put in them.

10. Mütter Museum, USA
It's the most frightening Museum of America and perhaps of the entire world. From the conjoined livers from a pair of Siamese twins to slides of Albert Einstein’s brain, the Mütter Museum houses dozens of strange artifacts from medical history. Each year the museum has over 142,000 visitors!
Each of these terrifying places must be where nightmares are born. Would you dare visiting them? I know I wouldn't!

Robert Wadlow: The sensational life of the tallest man who ever lived...

He watched the whole world like being the inhabitants of the island country of Lilliput!
Can you imagine being able to watch the world from 8 feet 11.1 inches height without being on a ladder or anything else? For this man who lived almost a century ago the world seemed so small, like Lemuel Gulliver - commonly known as Gulliver's Travels.
Robert Wadlow, the tallest man who ever lived, as an infant he was already 1.5 meter tall, at the age of 9 he could carry on his father and eventually he reached 2 meters and 72 centimeters.
According to the documentary made on his life, Robert Wadlow, born on February 22, 1918 he had normal weight and height, but soon his perky pituitary gland triggered abnormal growth.

When he was 5 years old, he had the body of a 17 year old and three years later had the height of 1 meter and 87 centimeters and weighed 100 pounds.

His clothing required three times the normal amount of cloth, and his size 37 shoes cost $100.00 a pair (a lot of money back in the 1930's).
And he kept getting bigger.... he eventually topped out at 8 feet 11.1 inches at the age of 19, deservedly taking the title of the tallest man in the world!
On July 15th 1940, Wadlow died in his sleep after an infection in his leg. He was 22 years old, weighed about 390 pounds. The coffin weighed 450 pounds and took 18 men to carry him to his final rest.
On October 20, 1985, a life-size bronze statue of Wadlow, sculpted by local artist Ned Giberson, was unveiled on the grounds of SIU Dental School in Alton (Wadlow had attended classes there) offering mute inspiration to those who dare to dream tall dreams.

Watch the documentary about his life below!
This likeable giant must have faced many difficulties during his short life...The world was too small for him!

Cappuccino Coast: Salted Cappuccino Served From The Ocean!

It was as if the ocean has been turned in to a giant cup of cappuccino!
This mysterious marvel seems like someone has poured loads of coffee and cappuccino milk into an ocean, and switched on a huge blender.
A rare natural phenomenon that transforms the shorelines of an ocean into foam, which resembles coffee froth...that must be the dream of every coffee lover!
This display of nature’s occasional freakiness had people scratching their heads in Cape Town, South Africa. Sea Point Beach on the outskirts of the city was transformed in to a foamy mess when the sea suddenly frothed itself into a frenzy.
The rare ocean foam phenomenon happens when ocean impurities such as seaweed excretions, plant and animal material, chemicals, and salts are churned by choppy ocean waves, creating bubbles that get trapped under water. As the bubbles are pushed to the shore they are rapidly shuffled to the surface, and their clinging together in this rapid movement creates a soft foam. The Cappuccino Coast phenomenon ranged as far as 30 miles out to sea and took days to fully clear away. Although no serious injuries were reported as a result of the foam, some ocean foam around the world had been considered dangerous because of its high levels of chemical toxins, including oil after oil spills in the ocean.

Watch the video below where the miracle of nature reaches the coast:
Although, this sea foam beach won’t taste as good as your coffee, your desire of dousing in a coffee bath will be fulfilled by this destination!

You Couldn't Possibly Imagine Where These Wild Elephants Enjoy Their Delicious Snack!

There is a hotel in Zambia that offers its visitors an outstanding spectacle once a year!

Each year at Mfuwe Lodge they have some very special guests that pay them a visit, offering to their human guests a unique experience! Whole families of elephants have been regular guests at the lodge for a number of years, visiting between late October and mid-December to feast on the fallen fruits from the large Wild Mango tree in the lodge grounds.

Wonky Tusk, their matriarch, leads them through the reception area of the Lodge, so that they can reach the mango tree on the grounds of the hotel. She intuitively knows when the mangos are ripe, and brings her family to enjoy their delicious snack.

Wonky and her family, which includes an adorable baby elephant, seem to know that it is safe for them to partake of these treats. Equally amazing is that their human friends leave them be in this incredibly peaceful scene. A mutual trust is evident as they enter the lodge. After they are satiated from the mangos, they peacefully lay down to take a nap. After resting they gently rumble back through the lodge for their leave-taking.

At least three generations of one particular elephant family have returned annually and their unusual dining habits and unique behavior has been the focus of many, a TV documentary, photograph, video, newsworthy article, and even children's books.

No matter how luxurious or spectacular is a hotel; this sight is so unique that no money can buy! Only nature can offer this! And as long as we humans respect the environment and the other creatures of this planet we may enjoy scenes like this!

I Would Have Never Know All Of Those Tattoos Were Under There!

Perhaps the world's most recognizable full-body canvas!

Rick Genest aka Zombie Boy was chosen by Dermablend which has long been known for its heavy-duty cover-up for its new commercial campaign!

The L'Oréal-owned cosmetics brand hired Rick Genest, to prove just how well its makeup can conceal anything.

The undead-obsessed model has covered the majority of his person with tattoos meticulously designed to make him look like a walking, decomposing corpse. However in this video nothing indicates that this guy with the perfect skin is covered by tons of make-up! A man with so many tattoos is unbelievable but more unbelievable than that is the coverage! That is miracle!

His name might not be immediately familiar, but Genest's tattoos should be. He's the guy with the full-body skeleton tattoos from Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" video, and it's really impressive to see him look so "normal"!

When we first see or meet someone, we form impressions, or prejudgments of that person based on our experience with others who share similarities. It is impossible to avoid doing this, but a good lesson we are taught over and over again is that we should try not to judge a book by its cover. This video is a new take on this idea, presented in reverse to show us how much our first impression informs our view of a person.

I must admit though that he looks kinda scary! Although I love tattoos and consider them as a great art I must say that for my taste it is too much, for others it might be appealing. Once again, we are taught the valuable lesson that things are rarely as they seem at first glance!
