Bolt Airplane Window

One internet user aboard an Air Canada flight to Vancouver heard a noise mid-flight, and then proceeded to see a screw come loose from the propeller before it headed straight into the window pane by his seat. In Skips_LegDay's own words: "So about halfway through my flight I heard a loud POP, looked out my window at a bolt that flew off the prop and broke through the outer pane." Once other passengers heard and saw what happened, they became frenzied. Fortunately, the plane landed safely. Continue reading for an up-close shot and more information.

Funny iPad Photography

Sure, the iPad is great for many things, but photography isn't one of the, or at least in public. For example, this person at The Louvre in Paris, France apparently forgot their smartphone and / or camera, but happened to have an iPad on them. If you haven't already noticed, the Mona Lisa isn't a very large painting, so by merely holding up an iPad, you're probably blocking the view of 30+ people standing behind you. Continue reading for more reasons why you should avoid taking pictures with an iPad if at all possible.

Worst Day Ever

While we don't know the entire back story, this unfortunate person was probably trying to clear a paper jam, but got a little too close to the feeder. Let's just hope co-workers were around to get there in time to cut off what they could before any serious damage to this person. That is just one of the many situations that could turn an already bay day into the worst ever. Continue reading for more examples.

Lost Ring Flyer

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.

Vetigel Blood

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."

Funny Driving Fail

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. Continue reading to see them all.

Transparent Flower

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. Continue reading for more images.

Secret Door Office

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.

Fiery Object Russia

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.

Strange Pipes Forest

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.
