A Guy Casually Rode Down The Street On A Bike…With WHAT On His Back?

Listen up, people. Riding a bike with livestock strapped to your back is a totally normal thing to do.

In some countries, at least. While we don’t see much of this hilarious action in the States, people who rely on bicycles in other places around the world know that if they want to move their furry friends, they have to get crafty. A little ingenuity can go a long way, after all, and it’s a special treat when the solution to a pesky problem looks like this.

Just going to work. Nothing to see here.

Nothing says “I have places to be” quite like strapping a goat to your back, am I right?

This is just excessive.

Okay, I’m about to ask my dog if she wants to go for a ride. She’s going to be real confused when we forgo the car.

These Explorers Found A Makeshift Prison…Complete With An Electric Chair

Urban exploration isn’t a hobby without risks. Those who choose to explore the unknown can expect to encounter a variety of strange situations. Very rarely, however, do they come across homemade electric chairs in the abandoned places they explore.

In the middle of the desert, urban explorer Adamthewoo came across what looked like your average abandoned building. But strangely enough, it was surrounded by barbed wire on all sides. He went in for a closer look, which is when he made the bizarre discovery.

Well, that doesn’t look safe at all. Part of me really wants to know what exactly went on out there, but I know that whatever it was, I probably wouldn’t like it.

This Guy Took A Video Of His Eyeball Getting Tattooed…So There’s That

In 2016, having a few visible tattoos isn’t quite as shocking as it was 20 years ago. That’s partially why those in the body modification community have begun experimenting with even more extreme ways to up the ante…which is how eyeball tattoos became a thing.

Even though it seems really dangerous, you can actually tattoo an eyeball safely if you know what you’re doing. In the video below, one adventurous soul chose not only to have his eyeballs tattooed, but to document the whole thing on film.

I don’t suggest watching this video if you’re in the middle of eating lunch.

While it looks kind of cool, I have a feeling that he’s going to have a hard time finding a job after this.

This Is The Insanity That Happens When You Are High On Crack

I’m sure we’re all aware of the dangerous effects that drugs can have on our brains.

Paranoia, delusions, and the inability to think rationally are only a few, but apparently being immune to feeling excruciating pain is one of them as well.

When a man in Brazil got high on crack cocaine recently, his altered state of mind made him think that it was a good idea to play in traffic. However, running in front of cars wasn’t the craziest thing he decided to do. You really have to see this to believe it.

This is so painful to watch.

This Starving Little Boy Was Accused Of Witchcraft, So He Was Cruelly Abandoned

Danish aid worker Anja Ringgren Lovén has seen some horrible things, but when she came across one little boy in Nigeria, she was beyond shocked.

While working for an aid organization to bring food to southern Nigeria, she came across an emaciated little boy roaming the streets. The two-year-old orphan was naked, riddled with worms and close to death due to starvation and thirst.

In the heart-breaking video of the encounter, the disoriented little boy was too weak to stand after Anja gave him a sip of water. As he kept falling over, she asked why no one was feeding the child. The locals responded, “no mother, no father.”

That’s when Anja pieced together the toddler’s nightmarish situation. Like thousands of other Nigerian children, he had been abandoned by his family after being accused of witchcraft.

Anja took in the small boy and named him Hope.

We’re very happy to report that since his rescue from the streets in January of this year, Hope is now a healthy and happy boy. Being rejected by your own family must be the loneliest feeling a child can experience, but he’s found a new loving family now at an orphanage recently opened by Anja.

Hope is all smiles these days.

There are terribly cruel things in this world, but a kind act like this can restore your faith in humanity.

Seeing an abandoned, starving child like this boy be welcomed into a happy community is enough to give anyone hope (pun intended).

This Shark Broke Into A Cage…With A Diver Still INSIDE

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again — I’m terrified of the ocean.

Of course, sharks play a big role in that fear. While I understand that they aren’t as bad as people paint them to be, there’s no way I’d ever go swimming anywhere near them. I just can’t risk something like this happening.

During a recent shark cage diving trip in Guadalupe Island in Mexico, things went very, very wrong for diver Ming Chan. As he was watching great white sharks that were swimming just outside of his cage, one of them lunged at the bait tied there and broke in.

While the man who filmed all of this says that the shark was likely just confused and couldn’t swim backwards, that doesn’t make this any less horrifying.

Luckily, Chan is a very experienced dive instructor and reacted quickly by swimming to the outside of the cage’s bottom as this happened.

He is completely unharmed and says that this experience has definitely not scared him away from future diving trips. He is a much braver person than I will ever be.

The Anxiety You’ll Feel After Watching This Guy’s Ride Is So Real

Like outdoor and indoor cats, there are outdoor and indoor people. If you’re anything like me, you’re of the latter variety.

Being the sedentary creature I am with my office job and love of books, I can’t say that I’ve ever, ever wanted to hop on a bike and send myself hurtling over a cliff. The closest I ever get to thrill-seeking is watching other people do it for me.

And this guy is one of those people.

If doing a backflip over a 72-foot canyon seems like Hell on Earth to you, welcome to your nightmare!

Yeah, I think I’ll stick to reading. I’m weak and this is too much for me.

What This Teacher Does To Her Special Needs Student Is Completely Inexcusable

I’ve had some pretty rude teachers in the past, but nobody quite as abusive as this lady.

In Mississippi, a student recently recorded a teacher as she pulled a special needs girl across the floor by her hair. It’s not clear how she supposedly misbehaved, but I’m sure we can all agree that she couldn’t have done anything to justify this shockingly violent treatment.

You really have to see this to believe it.

Nobody deserves to be abused like this.

After the video was posted in September, the Greenville Police Department and the Greenville Public School District got involved, and both are investigating the incident.

I sincerely hope that this woman faces charges for her actions. This kind of behavior is never okay.

These Audio Tapes Reveal Jared Fogle’s Sickening Plan To Get Close To Children

Jared Fogle rose to fame by becoming the face of Subway. He lost astronomical amounts of weight by incorporating the sandwiches into his diet, and he quickly became the brand’s spokesperson.

Fogle is now imprisoned in Colorado and serving a hefty sentence for the distribution and receipt of child pornography, as well as traveling to engage in illicit sexual conduct with a minor.

Most horrifying of all are the charges of sexual abuse. These audio tapes reveal how demented and twisted his actions were, since he had a very specific plan that he used to get closer to children.

Sickening is the only word that can describe people like him. Fogle used his star power to get closer to kids, and it’s highly likely that he caused immense trauma to his victims. It’s always scary to see the horrifying people behind the masks we see every day.
