The world is a big place full of crazy, wonderful things.

If that sounds like you, then you’ve come to the right place. Scroll down to find out all the weird and fascinating places in the world you may or may not have known about.

It started with a plan in the 1950s by one Ed Filbin. He dreamed a dream where one day, rubber tires would be worth a pretty penny. Did common sense, logic, and reasoning stop him? No! So what if tires are breeding grounds for mosquitoes, burn for hours, and are pretty ugly?

It didn’t stop Ed! And he collected 42 million tires.

Chernobyl faced a nuclear reactor meltdown, and the radiation left behind countless ghosts of what used to be. The parking lots have cars, and planes, and tanks, all things that were abandoned during the fallout.

Cyclone Gudrun went through Sweden in 2005 and uprooted around 2.65 billion cubic feet of lumber. They didn’t disappear, they were just dead, so they did what was standard practice and piled them up.

#4 Fort Bragg’s glass beaches.

After years of littering and poor care towards mother nature, Fort Bragg got a beach absolutely filled with rubbish. And given that the people of Fort Bragg already proved they don’t care about nature, they decided the litter wasn’t their problem and set everything on fire. The result? Mother nature spat everything out as tiny little jewels.

#5 Cargo ship graveyard.

A storm in 1965 stranded a freighter in Chittagong, Bangladesh, and since then, freighters have been left there to rust. It’s an uber garage.
