These days, more people are more inclined to post things on social media - Craigslist, Reddit, etc. - rather than actual flyers on the street. People who prefer the latter sometimes try to mix things up with pointless flyers designed to make you look twice (like Frodo Baggin's lost ring), or just to film reactions for the next viral YouTube video.

Invented by former NYU student and now Suneris CEO Joe Landolina, VetiGel stops bleeding almost instantly with a two-part process: first is a plant-based hemophilic polymer that grabs onto the blood and 'snaps it back together to seal the wound'; next is a polymer then replicates the skin tricking the body into thinking it is skin. Landolina says, "We extract pieces of the cell walls out of the plant, kind of like LEGO blocks. When applied to a wound, these LEGO blocks reassemble with whatever you put them next to."

If you thought texting and driving was bad, these people will put them to shame, starting with Mr. Saxophone, who decided to play a tune with either no hands (or one hand) on the wheel. Other strange examples include: playing the trumpet, using a tablet with both hands, having two feet outside the driver's side window, putting a sneaker in your mouth for absolutely no reason, and more.

The Diphylleia grayi looks like a normal flower when the sun is out, but its white petals turn transparent when they make contact with water. When it starts sprinkling, the petals turn clear as glass, which have caused some to give it the nickname of "skeleton flower." They're mainly found in the colder wooded mountainsides in Japan and China come late spring, recognizable by its large umbrella-like leaves and small clusters of pearly white blossoms.

When you rent office space, the last thing you'd expect to find is a door that blends right in with the wood flooring. However, that's exactly what this father and son found when they began moving things into the office. Even if you've come across something similar to this in other places, the leasing company definitely should have taken you down (or cleared everything out) there before signing it over. Continue reading to see why.
Residents in Russia's Sverdlovsk region witnessed a gigantic fiery flash in the night sky on November 14, 2014 at approximately 6:39 pm local time. Since many motorists have dash cams (due to insurance fraud) there are lots of amateur clips of the event that have been uploaded online. There are some that capture it head-on, while other people managed to get a side view of the object. Reddit users say it was likely a bright fireball meteor, but officials have not yet stated there was one detected at that time. Continue reading to watch both clips.
You know how some horror movies begin with a group of people getting lost in the woods? Well, this group of hikers in Northern Germany stumbled upon something that would fit right into one of those films. War movie buffs probably already have somewhat of an idea about what those pipes might be, but everyone else who come across them would not even dare get close them. Continue reading to see the creepiness that ensued when these people ventured inside.
You've probably seen, or at least heard, of the 262-foot hole that appeared in Siberia a few months ago, but now researchers have descended into what local residents call the "End of the World" crater. The leader of this current expedition,V ladimir Pushkarev, director of the Russian Centre of Arctic Exploration, says: "I have heard about this idea of a phenomenon like the Bermuda Triangle, but I repeat, our scientists need to work on their materials first and only then draw some definite conclusions." Continue reading for a video, more pictures and additional information.
Here's another look at a few new pages that were just released of the Voynich Manuscript, an illustrated codex hand-written in an unknown writing system. The vellum in the book pages has been carbon-dated to the early 15th century (1404-1438), and may have been composed in Northern Italy during the Italian Renaissance. The manuscript is named after Wilfrid Voynich, a Polish book dealer who purchased it in 1912. No one has yet succeeded in deciphering the text, and it has become a famous case in the history of cryptography. The mystery of the meaning and origin of the manuscript has excited the popular imagination, making the manuscript the subject of novels and speculation. Continue reading to see more.
When you see or hear about 12-inch nails, construction and / or buildings usually come to mind, but in the hands of artist John Bisbee, they become works of art. Many might be wondering what sets his sculptures apart from others, and it's the way he puts them together. You see, Bisbee spent the past 30 years perfecting a sculpting method that doesn't require glue, twine, or anything extra to force the nails to stay together. Continue reading to see more of his work.
