I've been waiting for someone to do a comparison like this.
The ad whopper versus the sad whopper
There are many more images comparing fast food ads with their real counterparts where I found this one. Be sure to check them out!

Sometimes reality is weirder than fiction. This is one of those cases.
If a painter would ever paint clouds this weird, everyone would think he had lost his mind or wonder what he had been drinking... and how much. Yet here they are, for real.
Who put that big pipe in the sky?
Who has been smearing whipped cream in the sky?
The clouds are oozing down!
Here is the awesome collection of weird clouds where I found these, there are many more there! Worth seeing!

Invisible painter by ruins
Invisible painter... where is he? Can you find him?
This is Liu Bolin, and if there ever would be an invisible man it would be him. He spends hours meticulously painting himself until he blends in with his chosen background like a chameleon. Amazing! Just the kind of weird stuff we like around here.
Follow the link for more pictures of Liu Bolin, the invisible painter .

No, this is not a scene from the Persian Gulf. This aircraft carrier is a work of art by Harry S. Truman that is built entirely from Legos! This beast weighs 350 lbs (about 160 kg) and took about 200,000 bricks to build. The detail of this model is absolutely astonishing!

I usually don't intentionally put broken links here to send people to "404" error pages, but that is exactly what I'm doing now. But this is not your standard boring 404 page. This will be especially funny to people familiar with the hilarious Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
series. (If you're not, better go do something about this glaring deficiency in your culture! )
So, without further ado, I am sending you to a file that doesn't exist on a web server named Marvin .

Sometimes reality is weirder than fiction. After the moose dangling from the power lines
, now here here we have an airplane performing the same trick.
Airplane dangling from power lines
The airplane had been approaching the landing field in Durach (Germany) when the 65-year-old pilot made an error and clipped the high-tension cables on his way in. The right landing wheel got caught and flipped the plane over on to its back.
The pilot and his wife were suspended from the 380,000 volt cables for nearly three hours upside down with aviation fuel pouring over them and dangerously close to the hot engine. A specialist crane weighing over 130 tons had to be trucked in to rescue them.
A video report called "Plane hits power lines " can be found on the BBC website.

I found a hillarious list on the web called "50 things to do on an exam when you know you are going to fail anyway". Here are some of the best ones:
The complete list can be found at 50 things to do on an exam when you know you are going to fail anyway .
