30 Times People Ran Across Some Pretty Wild Stuff Out There

There are some pretty cool things out there. Sometimes you have to travel a ways to find it, other times, it's all pretty close to home. And that's not even mentioning the wild and random things you find in your home.

If you're like these people, whenever you find something truly out there, you'll do us all a favor and post it to the internet.

"Landscape mural made with plastic bread tags."

That's... a lot of bread tags. Either someone out there really loves bread (something I can't fault them for), or they'd just had a collection specifically to make an art piece like this. It's definitely a better use of old bread tags than simply throwing them out. And it looks so cool!

"The door into my work casts a solid rainbow for a few minutes in the mornings."

This is definitely one of those right place at the right time kind of things. Except, it apparently happens every morning (or at least every sunny morning).

How cool would it be to walk into the office each day, only to be met by a pretty little rainbow on the floor?

"Barking Roof Dog in Seattle, WA."

Anytime I see an image of a dog on a rooftop (which has happened a surprising amount of times lately), I always wonder, how do they get up there?

Are dogs better climbers than I originally thought? Do people just, like, leave their windows open for their dogs to climb out of? It's so weird.

"My cat fell asleep looking like he's standing up."

There's something so adorably hilarious about the way cats and dogs sleep at times. Why do they always stick random legs out in the air? I've never seen any pet look like it's standing up while sleeping, though, so this one is pretty new to me.

"I saw Mad Max on my commute this morning."

Either the apocalypse has already started, or someone out there really likes Mad Max. I mean, it is a pretty cool, albeit incredibly intimidating, vehicle. I can only imagine that a car like this would use up more gas, though, since that back part looks kind of heavy.

"This book was last checked out 75 years ago."

The fact that it's already been 75 whole years since the last time anyone ever checked this book out can only mean one of two things: one, it's been long-forgotten in some corner of the library; or two, it's so painfully uninteresting that no one bothered to try and read it.

"My (very neglected) rose bush bloomed in the shape of a heart!!"

What are the two things most associated with love and romance? Red roses and hearts, of course. Though these roses are a bit more pink than red, the fact that they bloomed into the shape of a heart is just too much. This is giving me cuteness overload.

"The way this balloon connects with the mountains."

This is so cool! In order to take a photo like this, you basically have to have the best timing in the world.

You'd also have to know of a hot air balloon that has an image of a mountain range on it (which I guess is probably common in a mountainous region). It's so pretty, too.

"I dipped my hand in white wall paint once and it looked like I was turning into a marble statue."

I'm not going to ask why this person decided to submerge their hand into some white paint, but I'm kind of glad they did. The effect of the still-wet paint completely covering the hand looks so cool!

It's kind of like turning yourself into art, since it'd make you look like you're partially made out of marble.

"Natural Aquarium."

From the looks of it, someone put a glass plane at the edge of a pond, allowing us to see what lies underneath the surface. There isn't too much going on (no lake monsters or anything), but it's still really fascinating to look at. Oh so natural and very cool.

"This ivy growing inside a shell."

It looks like that snail shell's been abandoned for a while. Or at least, long enough for a plant to make itself at home and grow inside. That's definitely not something you see every day.

Honestly, if I weren't looking at it, I wouldn't believe something like this were even possible.

"This fort someone built down by the beach."

It's always kind of exciting coming across random structures other people have built. I wonder who built this little fort, and for what purpose.

Maybe there are other random things inside the fort that the builder had left behind, hoping to return to someday. Or maybe I just watch too many movies.

"A golf ball melted perfectly into a sewer drain."

I'm no expert, but I'm pretty sure golf balls don't melt that easily. Still, it's kind of cool how this ball has been pushed to perfectly fit into the grate like that. Hopefully this isn't some kind of trap, and there isn't a murderous clown waiting on the other side for someone to try and pick it up...

"This building looks like a USB port."

The fact that this USB building is really cool. But I'm kind of in awe about where this picture was taken - seemingly in the middle of a random outcropping of trees.

It makes the whole thing look kind of post-apocalyptic, or like this building was built in the middle of nowhere for some reason.

"I stumbled across this car that’s painted half black and half white."

People tend to do some pretty unique things to their vehicles. But this is by far the coolest paint job I've seen on a car. The fact that it's perfectly split in half, with one side white and the other black, is just so cool! Also, whoever owns it parked really well.

"A cool looking tree on a beach."

It's always so awesome to see the weird ways trees grow in order to get optimal sun. Any tree that just so happens to be growing in and around a cliffside will always jut out in a really random way. It looks like gravity tried to bring this one down, but it persisted!

"Saw our pilot dangling out the window to clean the windshield."

This probably isn't actually that wild. But as someone who travels by air very infrequently, I can say I've never seen an airplane pilot climb out of the windshield in order to clean it. This definitely isn't something you'd see every day (unless you travel, like, all the time).

"My dad’s tree is swallowing his thermometer."

This is a prime example of how trees will grow to adapt to their surroundings. That thermometer has probably been on that tree for years; for such a long time that the tree is slowly growing around it. And judging by the size of that tree trunk, this has probably been going on for a while.

"Local Mexican restaurant used to be a Chinese restaurant. Instead of painting over a mural, they just put sombreros on the pandas."

I love this so much. It's silly, but the attention to detail is what really sells it.

You see, it's not just that the pandas are wearing sombreros, but one of them is eating a taco and there are chilis growing in the trees.

"Found the cliff this Clif bar came from."

While this is super cool, it's actually wrong. Obviously, any overhang with mountains in the distance could look like the real place.

According to Clif Bar themselves the inspiration was an overhang at a trail called Chain Reaction at Smith Rock, Oregon.

"I bought some suspiciously perfect bananas yesterday."

Those are some beautiful bananas.

That said, the more "perfect" the produce looks, the less flavor it tends to have. At least, that's how it always seems to go for me.

"I got a warning for leaving my laptop unattended in the library."

We'd like to think that our stuff would be safe for the thirty seconds it takes to grab another reference book or a refill of our coffee, but that's not always the case. This is a good method of reminding people.

That said, it would take a ninja to get away an acid green laptop.

"The corrosion on this water tap looks like a map."

It's hard to believe that the pattern is simply due to random corrosion, but it is!

No one wants to deal with this sort of discoloration and damage to their taps, but if it's going to happen, at least this one looks cool.

"I got a whole plane to myself when I was accidentally booked on a flight just meant for moving crew."

This is my dream travel situation.

Is it weird and probably a bit awkward to hang out in a big jet with just the few crew members being moved to a new place, but it would be so relaxing.

"The seal is perfectly illuminated for about one minute on Veterans Day every year. Memorial in Anthem, AZ."

This is a really cool attention to detail and is harder to achieve than it looks. You need to know the exact angle of the sun at that exact time on that exact day of the year.

But the results are worth it.

"This LEGO set has loose change in the couch."

How adorable is this little easter egg built into this Lego set?

Did they need to do this? Of course not! Which is why it's so delightful.

"The Creeping Devil is a rare species of cactus that is not only capable of cloning itself to survive, but also of detaching from its major shoot to move through the desert over time."

Well, the idea of a "creeping" cactus moving across the desert is mildly upsetting.

I'm assuming that the just mean that the cloned plants just shift the "forest" of cacti's location of time and, you know, not that they literally creep across the sand.

"This tree grew inside the STOP sign."

Life will, uh, find a way.

This probably isn't sustainable for the tree (or the sign) since the trunk will eventually be too thick for the pole, but it's pretty cool for now.

"Playing with the kid on the floor when a lightbulb melted and hit me."

I guess this lightbulb got too hot and said, "enough is enough," and melted itself out of its socket. Hopefully the person who posted this didn't get hurt. On the plus side, it's such a cool image; the bulb almost looks like some kind of jellyfish at a glance.

"A Plane Crash I Hiked to in North Carolina."

The one really cool thing about hiking is the fact that you can see so many cool and unexpected things. Like, a random plane crash in the middle of the woods, for example.

I've never seen "Lost," but this is giving me serious stranded-on-a-deserted-island-with-a-group-of-strangers vibes.
