70% of of the world

At one time, there were millions of Saiga antelopes roaming the plains of central Asia. Over time, their numbers were brought down by disease, hunting and oddly, the landing of the Soyuz capsule from the International Space Station. Still, the population held steady at a quarter-million antelopes until six months ago when 70% of the population mysteriously died.

Photo of a mysterious ghost city floating in the sky above Foshan China

Thousands of Chinese residents reported seeing a “floating city” in the skies above Foshan in the Guangdong province of China this week. Similar reports occurred in China in 2011 over Huanshan City. In both instances, the apparition shocked and terrified witnesses but only lasted for a few minutes before completely disappearing.

Huge cloaked UFO photographed over China and India by many witnesses

Some claim they are a rare type of cloud but many believe these UFOs are huge cloaked, alien motherships veiled behind some sort of advanced, semi-transparent cover. This week, pictures poured in from China’s Sichuan Province after residents along the Heilongtan Reservoir spotted a huge cloaked-UFO travelling across the horizon.

Did a major cyberattack force the shutdown of the New York Stock Exchange on July 8, 2015?

“Where there’s smoke, there’s fire”. Words to live by in our modern-day world where media faces make up the news and world leaders speak from behind a smokescreen. Case in point – there may be more to last week’s one-in-a-million coincidence where three separate software glitches brought down the Wall Street Journal, United Airlines flight systems, and the New York Stock Exchange – all at the same time. After wiping the sleep from their eyes, many are now wondering if there were more to these cyber incidents than meets the eye.

Hong Kong smuggler caught with 94 iPhones taped to his body

On January 11, an wily immigrant from Hong Kong drew officials’ suspicion after they noticed the man walking funny, as if he had joint stiffness or sore muscles. They noted that the man looked like he was weighed down even though he was only holding two plastic bags in his hands. They directed the man through the airport-style metal detector and to nobody’s surprise, the alarms sounded.

Odd orb-like UFO captured in Google Maps satellite photo over Zhumadian, China

Taken on April 11, 2013, this satellite photo, available on Google Maps, shows an odd white orb UFO flying over Zhumadian, China. All of the aircraft in the photo are heading north and two are easily identifiable as military aircraft. The third craft however, a white orb-like object in the upper left-hand side of the frame, is difficult to explain.

Photographer accidentally captures couples

The Wahuan Yangtze bridge, located in the Hubei province in central China, has been dubbed a “lovers’ leap” after the number of people who commit suicide there each year. In 2013, a photographer standing on a viewing platform was snapping pictures of the bridge, which was shrouded in an eerie fog, when he inadvertently captured these memorable photos of a couple’s suicide leap. As he said after the incident, he never even realized the tragedy he had captured on film.

WTF? Huge car-vending machine in China – customer inserts coins and out pops a car

// January 24th, 2014 // No Comments » // Unusual Places (you can visit)

Cars in the vending machine are housed on robotic-controlled platforms

Can’t say we blame them. With some of the worst pollution and only 10% of the population owning cars, a vending machine that dispenses cheap electric rental cars seems like a no-brainer to us. Wait a minute – a *vending machine* that dispense cars?!?! In Hangzhou, China, citizens walk up to the multi-story Kandi Car garage, insert their credit card, push a few buttons, and viola, a fully-charged electric vehicle is retrieved via robotic arms, tracks, and elevators and deposited at their feet.

Coffin Apartments – underprivileged residents of China forced to live in tiny-sized stacked boxes

// December 17th, 2013 // No Comments » // Bizarre


Called “coffin apartments”, they’re Japan’s and China’s solution to cheap housing for the poor and underprivileged citizens. Designed to fit a single bed and not even tall enough to stand up in, these tiny apartments are stacked atop each other to maximize space – and profits. Hidden amid the multi-million dollar high-rise apartments in Tokyo and gleaming skyscrapers in Hong Kong, they are not for the claustrophobic.

At least 42 dead and hundreds injured during wave of giant hornet attacks in China

Asian Giant Hornets (Vespa mandarinia)

Forty-two people have died and thousands have been injured in a wave of giant hornet attacks in central China. Victims of the bizarre attacks, which began about three months ago, described being chased for hundreds of yards by the creatures and stung as many as 200 times. The giant hornets can grow up to three inches in length and as thick as a human thumb. Their stingers can reach nearly ½ inch in length. In the city of Ankang alone, 18 people have died from the stings which, like America’s “Killer Bees”, are highly toxic and can lead to anaphylactic shock and renal failure (as if you wouldn’t die from sheer terror alone).

Forgotten migrant workers live cheaply in bizarre Chinese “shipping container city”

// August 21st, 2013 // No Comments » // Unusual Places (you can visit)

Shanghai, China Shipping Container village

Soaring property values in China have some Chinese living like hamsters in tall stacks of shipping containers. For less than $80 a month, rural migrants can rent out a stark steel metal container on the outskirts of Shanghai. In 2001, officials tore down a similar container village in Pudong, consisting of over 100 “homes”, because it was “too dangerous”. The teetering stack of containers in Shanghai has been housing Chinese migrant workers for over a decade.

Damage to nose cone of Chinese Boeing 757 after collision

According to admittedly sketchy and incomplete reports, on the morning of June 4, 2013, a Air China Boeing 757 on route from Chengdu to Guangzhou was flying at an altitude of 26,000 feet when suddenly it was struck by an unknown flying object. The collision occurred 20 minutes after takeoff, soon after the aircraft reached cruising altitude. There were no injuries aboard the aircraft but the Boeing 757 suffered major damage to the nose cone of the aircraft. Pilots chose to turn back to the airport in Chengdu where they made an emergency landing, stepped outside, and were stunned to see the extensive damage caused to the plane by the collision.

Chinese man carries his home around on his back like a snail

Looking like someone out of the Flintstones, 38-year-old Liu Lingchao is the human equivalent of a real-life human snail, carrying his 132 pound (60 kilogram) house, made of bamboo poles and plastic sheets, on his back as he travels throughout China. A veritable travelling salesmen, he earns money for food and supplies by collecting plastic bottles and metal cans along his route that he sells when he passes through a new Chinese city along his way.

These kids in China have to scale a dangerous 195-foot cliff each day in order to get to school

// April 17th, 2013 // No Comments » // News


What are these crazy kids up to now? They are going to school! In China, the youth of Zhangjiawan village in Long Tianping County have 195-foot (60 meter) cliff they have to climb in order to get to school. There is a safer route but it takes three hours to get to school via the roundabout path so parents have their kids climb these custom-built ladders each day. The ladders are built by the parents that live in the area and are replaced every few years for, ahem, safety reasons.
