What They Do At This Spanish Festival Is Absolutely Bizarre

What They Do At This Spanish Festival Is Absolutely Bizarre

Blog
To Americans, some cultural traditions practiced in other countries seem odd (as ours do to them). We just didn't grow up with those traditions, so we have little to no understanding of their origins or why they are so important. This is often the case when people from different cultures are exposed to other people's customs for the first time.And this Spanish tradition is certainly one of those strange activities. On the Catholic feast day of Corpus Christi, Spanish mothers bring their newborns into the streets and place them on mattresses so that men can jump over them. It's a huge celebration, but what does it all mean? The festival is called El Salto del Colacho, or the Devil's Jump. To carry out this tradition, mothers first line their babies up on comfy mattresses. ...

They Were Honoring Their Deceased Grandfather When This Craziness Happened

Blog
Different cultures have different ways of honoring their dead. While some dig up their bodies and give them makeovers, others simply burn their country's flag in order to pay their last respects.When this family's grandfather died, they decided to honor his memory by lighting an Icelandic flag on fire, as is tradition in that culture. However, things quickly took a turn for the worse when one family member wasn't being very careful. I have to admit that he had a pretty smart reaction.

What He Found In His Home Will Make You Feel Happy You’re At The Top Of The Food Chain

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DTAT_ATF'); }); We humans don't know how good we have it being the dominant species at the top of the food chain. Sure, other animals might get a few of us every once in a while, but we don't have any natural predators to speak of. To illustrate my point of just how good we have it, I'd like to show you what Redditor RicarduZonta found inside a couple of wasp nests while cleaning his home... RicarduZonta's mother noticed a couple of wasp nests situated in a particular doorframe and tasked him with removing them. Here is a picture of the wasp that made them before the great cleaning.

They Caught This Creature Climbing Buildings In Russia…But What Is It?

Blog
If there's going to be a bizarre, otherworldly-looking creature spotted scaling the side of a building, why wouldn't it be in Russia? After all, Russia does tend to attract more than its fair share of paranormal activity. But just because it could happen doesn't mean that it actually will.The video below started circulating back in 2013. It reportedly shows a monster climbing an apartment building somewhere in Russia, and the worst part is that it kind of looks like Slender Man. Although it's freaky, there's an overwhelming amount of evidence that points to it being fake. (source: GloverX )First of all, what would a monster get out of climbing the side of an apartment complex? That feels like a major plot hole to me. That being said, I'll still be drawing the blinds tonight. Re...

Gingerbread houses are a huge part of the holiday season, but have you ever wondered where exactly the idea came from? Gingerbread first became a tradition in Nuremberg, Germany, after it was introduced to Europe during the Crusades in the 11th century. Monks began baking "lebkuchen" cookies in the 14th century. They quickly became a well-known delicacy. The city was so serious about the quality of the treats that it created the "League of Lebkuchen-Bakers," which followed strict guidelines when baking them. These baked goods eventually took the form of houses sometime during the 16th century in Germany. Wikipedia However, gingerbread houses didn't actually become popul...

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DTBT_ATF'); }); Sharks have been the nightmare of fishermen and beach-goers for ages. When I picture a shark, it's usually a great white or a hammerhead, because that's what I've grown up seeing in movies and nature documentaries. But lurking down in the deep sea is a truly terrifying creature that really lives up to its name: the goblin shark. Dianne J.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DTBT_ATF'); }); There's no shortage of paranormal hoaxes on YouTube, but this security camera footage from an office in Manchester, England, is especially perplexing. In the early morning hours of November 1, 2012, security guards witnessed a bizarre chain of events as they monitored a supposedly empty office. The following is the actual footage from that day, and it's insanely unsettling. Consider yourself warned. Watch as chairs slide across the floor, door handles jiggle, and papers fly out of filing cabinets in this "empty" office. How do you explain the movement of this chair?

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DTBT_ATF'); }); Although industrialization has enabled humans to attain a living standard that we'd never known before the Industrial Revolution, it also continues to play a big role in destroying our environment. The natural beauty of a region is sadly no match for a wrecking crew and a factory. No place on Earth puts that fact on display better than the Russian city of Norilsk. Norilsk began as a labor camp for Soviet prisoners in 1935. The first waves of prisoners were forced to dig mines high in the Putorana Mountains, which are known to have some of the largest nickel deposits on Earth.
