What This Guy Does Instead Of Using A Hammer Is Insane...Only In Russia

What This Guy Does Instead Of Using A Hammer Is Insane…Only In Russia

When it comes to home construction (or any kind of construction, really) safety should always be your primary concern. If you’re not taking steps to ensure no bodily harm comes to you or those around you, then that’s just plain dumb. For example, one thing you should never do when building something is use your own hand as a hammer. I wish this was just a hypothetical, but sadly, it’s not, as you can see in the video below. It’s equal parts horrifying and impressive. Well that’s going to leave a mark. Hopefully he has really good health insurance and his employer is all paid up on their premiums!

This Snake Somehow Is Still Alive 16 Hours After Losing Its Head

This Snake Somehow Is Still Alive 16 Hours After Losing Its Head

When you’re a hunter who kills and cooks your own food, the last thing you expect is for your catch to come back to life at some point during the cooking process. That goes double if you happen to be into hunting and cooking rattlesnakes. Sadly, this is a thing that actually happens sometimes. Take, for example, what happened to the guy in this video. He caught a couple of rattlesnakes and was preparing to cook them when one seemingly came back to life…despite being headless and skinless. Mildly NSFW, especially if you’re about to eat lunch. (via Reddit) When this happens with dead animals, it’s usually because someone put salt on them, which can make the nerve endings fire and cause twitching. However, according to the video description, there was no salt or seasoning on the snake when it started moving. On top of that, what this thing did […]

The Concept Of An Underwater River Is Freaky Enough, Even Without The Deadly Gases

The Concept Of An Underwater River Is Freaky Enough, Even Without The Deadly Gases

Considering the vastness (and general creepiness) of the ocean, you’d think that exploring the depths of rivers and lakes would at least be a little bit safer than diving into the deep blue sea. And as you might have guessed, that’s completely wrong. If you look in the right spots, you’ll quickly discover that these bodies of water can be just as horrifying as the ocean. Take, for example, the Cenote Angelita, which is a popular diving destination in Mexico. From the surface, it looks like any other body of water. When divers make their way down, however, they discover the truth. Right in the middle of the river flows a toxic current of hydrogen sulfide. Needless to say, diving experience is required. (source: TecdiveTV ) And this is why I hate all bodies of water indiscriminately. You can never be too careful. Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/underwater-river/

If This Is Happening In Your Restaurant, You're Doing Something Very Wrong

If This Is Happening In Your Restaurant, You’re Doing Something Very Wrong

In the food service industry, there is nothing more disturbing than walking into the kitchen and seeing something gross. Luckily, thanks to stringent health and safety standards, the odds of this happening are actually pretty small. That being said, unsavory stuff does happen now and then. One time, I saw a rat just chillin’ in a restaurant kitchen, and the worst part was that no one seemed to care. If you think that’s a gross story, just wait until you see what this cook found when he started his shift one day. (source: funny people) I think they need the ghostbusters of rat exterminators to take care of an infestation like that. Nah, you know what? Just burn the whole place down. What’s the nastiest restaurant experience you’ve ever had? Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/rat-kitchen/

8 Disgusting Facts About Ancient Rome That Will Make You Nauseous

8 Disgusting Facts About Ancient Rome That Will Make You Nauseous

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DTBT_ATF’); }); Ancient Rome was a pretty amazing place. Between 753 BC and 476 AD, Romans were among the most technologically and culturally advanced people on Earth. Despite them forming the basis of modern society, Romans held a number of pretty insane beliefs and practices, at least by today’s standards. Here are a few of the most disgusting. (If you’re in the middle of eating lunch, maybe you should save this one for later.) 1. The Poop Sponge iStock Rome was one of the first cities in the world to have what we might consider an advanced plumbing system. Public toilets in Rome were commonplace. While this might seem like great news, these public toilets weren’t without their downsides. For example, they were hardly ever cleaned. When you were done, instead of toilet paper, there was just a single sponge on a stick that everyone in the public […]

Did The U.S. Government Poke A Hole In Space And Time? Some Say Yes

Did The U.S. Government Poke A Hole In Space And Time? Some Say Yes

Have you heard of the Montauk Project? For those who aren’t familiar with it, it is a supposed secret government project with the aim of facilitating time travel and ways for us to travel between dimensions. Some of the stories (all of them unconfirmed) about the Montauk Project became the basis for Netflix’s most recent smash hit, “Stranger Things.” googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBP_ATF’); }); While the conspiracy theory of the Montauk Project breaks down into many different individual theories, the main thread is that the U.S. government managed to create an interdimensional portal in the space-time continuum back in the 1980s. Wikipedia googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBM_BTF’); }); But they didn’t do it alone. They had assistance from secret technology left behind by Nikola Tesla (and some helpful aliens, of course). iStock Most of the “evidence” for the Montauk Project comes from a book of the same name written by Preston B. Nichols […]

If You Think Spiders Are Bad, Wait Until You See What A ‘Spider Frost’ Looks Like

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DTAT_ATF’); }); If you think that finding a spider in the corner of your room is a terrifying experience, then you should be thankful that you don’t live in rural Victoria, Australia. Residents there are currently experiencing what can only be described as “spider frost.” If that sounds terrifying, just wait until you see it… Does that look like frost or spider webs to you?

Nothing To See Here...Just An 18-Foot Python Trying To Cross The Road

Nothing To See Here…Just An 18-Foot Python Trying To Cross The Road

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DTBT_ATF’); }); Have we as a society ever definitively concluded why the chicken chose to cross the road? I believe the reason why was to get to the other side. I know that’s a controversial stance on the matter, which is why I’m going to distract you with another question: Why did the 18-foot python cross the road? That’s the question South African motorists are asking themselves after witnessing a giant python cross a highway in the country’s Kruger National Park. Dash cam footage shows the massive snake slithering out into the middle of the road before disappearing into a giant pothole. Luckily, drivers were good sports about the massive snake and let it get where it was going before continuing on their way. (via The Daily Mail) So there you have it. The python crossed the road to get to the giant pothole right in the middle. […]
