Here Are 20 Of The Most Bizarre Mailboxes You’ll Probably Ever See

Most of us know at least one neighbor with a strange mailbox.

Unfortunately for me, all of the ones on my street are pretty normal and decidedly boring. But for the people who took the photos below, the boxes they came across are anything but ordinary.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBP_ATF’); });

From microwaves to computer towers, get ready to witness some of the weirdest mailboxes the internet has to offer.

1. I bet the mailman gets really heated every time he sees this.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBM_BTF’); });

2. They prefer getting junk mail in their trunk.

3. This isn’t creepy at all…

4. OM NOM NOM.

5. How is this creepy AND patriotic?

6. Maybe they like reading their mail while sitting on the toilet?

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCI1_BTF’); });

7. Well, at least it’s fabulous.

8. Is anyone else creeped out by that face?

9. This has to be a little freaky for the people delivering mail.

10. Is that an old refrigerator??

11. They must really love lighting up.

12. Somebody’s a fan of “The Walking Dead.”

13. I wouldn’t go anywhere near that thing.

14. Okay, this one’s pretty awesome.

15. This snowman has seen terrible things.

16. This sure is an interesting take on email.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCI2_BTF’); });

17. This mailbox is way cooler than yours.

18. “I like a little toast with my mail.”

19. I have no idea why this manatee is dressed up as a witch.

20. They deserve a little credit for putting their broken gaming system to use.

You have to wonder whether these are funny or just irritating to the mail carriers. Let’s just hope that the former is true so something like this doesn’t happen.

A Mother Picked The Wrong Biker To Judge By His Looks. Here’s His Epic Response.

Unfortunately, it comes somewhat naturally for most of us to judge other people without really knowing them. We’re all a product of our pasts, shaped by our upbringing and experiences. But it’s important to look through all of that and remember that judging someone by their outward appearance truly is like only reading the cover of a book. And maybe the inside flap at best. Here’s a guy’s personal post that drives that point home.

“”

So, there you have it. Don’t make hurtful assumptions about other people, especially those that you are already assuming want to kill you. Because that makes no sense. Share this guy’s experience with others. Spread the no-judging message.

This Guy Appears To Make Short Skits While Playing With A Dead Body

Pretty much everything that can exist does exist in some form online. While this is exciting at some level, it’s also a terrifying prospect. Most of use aren’t disturbed enough to think of all the weird, crazy things that we sometimes encounter on the internet, but the many creeps who call the web home certainly are.

And some sickos are a cut above the rest. Take, for example, a YouTuber who goes by Jake.

Jake’s channel consists solely of disturbing black and white video sketches that seem to incorporate a dead body wrapped in a garbage bag.

Saying that this footage is disturbing is putting it mildly.

All of the short flickers of text that come across the screen in these videos don’t make them any better.

One enterprising Redditor was able to piece together all of these texts. The result is actually a poem.

Here’s a transcript:

There was a lady all skin and bone; Sure such a lady was never known. It happened upon a certain day, this lady went to the church to pray. When she came to the church stile, there she did rest a little while; When she came to the church yard, there the bells so loud she heard. When she came to the church door, she stopped to rest a little more; When she came to the church within, the parson prayed ‘gainst pride and sin. On looking up, on looking down, she saw a dead man on the ground; And from his nose unto his chin, the worms crawled out, the worms crawled in. Then she unto the parson said, “Shall I be so when I am dead?” “Oh yes! Oh yes,” the parson said, “You will be so when you are dead.” Here the lady screams.

This one might be the freakiest of all.

(via Reddit)

Well, I’m never sleeping again. I’d really like to know what exactly is happening in these videos and why, but I would settle for knowing whether or not that’s a real body.

Here Are 14 Ridiculous Jobs That Pay More Than Being A Teacher

Teachers are widely under-appreciated in America, both in how little respect they receive AND in how little they are compensated for their deeds. If kids are our future, we should take care of the people grooming them for the future, right? Well, the average starting salary for a teacher is around $45,000. There are much more lucrative (albeit superfluous) professions out there, let’s examine a few.

1) Hot Air Balloon Pilot – $50-60k

2) Tollbooth Worker – $46-50k

3) Butler – $47-55k

4) Radio DJ – $50-65k

5) Pro Skateboarder – $50-100k

6) Bull Rider – $100-500k

7) Truck Driver – $45-60k

8) Stripper – $50-150k

9) Dog Walker – $50/hour

10) Pro Bowler – $45-50k

11) House Sitter – $50-60k

12) Crop Duster – $70-80k

13) Food Tester – $47-55k

14) Clown – $50-60k

Teachers do a valuable service for the community and the world at large.  It is time that we start paying them at least as much as clowns, even if those clowns are in clown college debt.  Share this post if you agree!

Shopping For A New Home? How About An Entire Town Ghost Town All To Yourself?

House hunting is literally the worst. Not only can the process take forever, but if you mess anything up, you might have to start all over again. So might I suggest a new approach? How about looking at a completely abandoned ghost town in the Colorado foothills?

Welcome to the town of Cabin Creek — a ghost town in Colorado that’s not too far from the city of Denver.

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

The town is currently owned by James Johnson. Johnson bought the town in 2000 and funded the sale by selling everything he owned.

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Johnson had hoped to turn the town around and make it into a destination for tourists and travelers the way it was before the Interstate was constructed.

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCI1_BTF’); });

Sadly, Johnson’s dream never came to pass. Now he’s trying to unload the five-acre town via Craigslist for the surprisingly affordable price of $350,000.

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

While Johnson actually has a number of interested buyers lined up, none of them have been able to secure financing from a bank yet. The reason for this, he says, is because of the mixed residential and commercial zoning of the town along with the dangerous conditions of the buildings.

If Cabin Creek sounds like the place for you, you can check out the listing on Craigslist or visit the dedicated website here.

He’s Known As The Dirtiest Man In Europe. And How He Got That Way Is Extremely Odd.

Ludvik Dolezal isn’t your average homeless man. Ludvik, who is from the Czech Republic, actually may be the dirtiest man in Europe. That’s because of his unusual habit. He is absolutely fascinated with ashes and fire. So much so, he sleeps in a bed made of ash. The man burned his mattress and duvet cover just to create enough ash to comfortably sleep in. He believes that fire is one of the most important parts of his life.

Passers by often refer to Ludvik as the devil, like in a fairy tale.

Daily Mail

One day, he quit his job.

Daily Mail

Since then, he has “been with the fire.”

Daily Mail

He burns nearly all of his possessions so that he can cover up with hot ash.

Daily Mail

It’s believed that his obsession with fire and ash is the result of a psychological disorder.

Daily Mail

One of the few possessions he managed not to burn is his radio.

Daily Mail

Sometimes strangers will give the man tires to burn so he can keep warm.

Daily Mail

He’s also a heavy smoker.

Daily Mail

He believes he has breathing problems and by smoking at least one pack a day, it helps him breathe.

Daily Mail

He gets money every month from the Czech government, but officials are afraid to give it to him all at once, in case he burns it.

Daily Mail

(H/T Daily Mail) It’s hard to put yourself in this man’s shoes. His connection to flame and ash is unique, and a part of his life that he simply cannot live without. He wears only a fleece sweater in the winters to keep warm because he is never far from fire. Share this man’s unique habits with others.

These Confessions From Retail Employees Are Both Helpful And Mind-Blowing.

Retail/service sector jobs are a rite of passage. All it takes is a year or two for the real truth to sink in: Retail and service sector jobs suck.

Here are 10 confessions about your favorite retail companies that will enlighten and maybe even enrage you a little bit.

This explains the powerful headache I get every time I’m in there.

Damn. That’s pretty awesome.

I bet they’re not too happy about this little secret getting out.

People actually do this?

Ouch.

Maybe I’ll send everything via USPS from now on.

Sounds like a good way to get some free snacks.

In my heart I knew it, but didn’t want to believe it.

Makes sense, but I’m sure the loss prevention team doesn’t like it.

Oh really? I’ll have to go coupon hunting.

What Does The Inside Of A Can Of Pasta Look Like After 25 Years? Not Good

If you’re anything like me, you have a large stockpile of canned goods somewhere in your home. You know…in case of an emergency. My plan, should the apocalypse arrive, is to become a food merchant and slowly rebuild society with the wealth and power I accumulate. But a recent article I came across might just throw a wrench in the gears.

Matt over at DinosaurDracula.com recently came across an old can of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Chef Boyardee from 1991. I remember eating this back in the day and it was delicious. But how does a can like this age? The answer is not very well.

The glorious can itself!

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBM_BTF’); });

The moment of truth. I can imagine the smell wasn’t very pleasant based on what comes next.

The contents of the entire can managed to dehydrate down into one small clump.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCI1_BTF’); });

That does not look appetizing at all.

It was apparently pretty solid. It took Matt a while, but eventually, he was able to split the ball in two.

He decided to make a label and keep it forever.

(source DinosaurDracula)

Well, that really makes me question just how durable and valuable my canned goods would be in a post-apocalyptic world. I guess it’s back to the drawing board for me.

It Might Seem Like A Normal Temple From The Outside. But Go Inside And… AHHHH!

You can’t argue taste or religion. Everyone is going to feel and believe different things. Be that as it may, when you find out what these people near Bikaner, India, are worshipping you’ll have a hard time not being shocked (or at least a little creeped out). There’s a temple there called Karni Mata Temple in the town of Deshnoke that draws worshippers from all over the region. There is something special inside, called “kabbas,” that you can’t find anywhere else.

Karni Temple is special for one reason…

Rats. It’s full of rats.

But these aren’t ordinary rats.

Devotees who flock to the temple believe the rats are holy animals.

They call them “kabbas.”

They are fed, worshipped and protected.

The rats are literally everywhere.

The rats literally cover every surface.

And you must tread carefully there. If you were to step on one of the holy animals, you would need to replace it with one made of solid gold.

To keep the rats safe from predators, there are grates and grills in the courtyard.

Priests and caretakers live at the temple with the rats.

Not only do they protect them, but they also clean up after the rats.

With 20,000 rats running around, there’s a lot of excrement to sweep up.

The temple honors Karni Mata, or Karniji, a female Hindu sage.

The local folklore differs, but most rat origin stories revolve around an army of 20,000 soldiers.

They fled to the town seeking refuge and Karni Mata offered them shelter at the temple, knowing the punishment of deserters was death.

So, from that moment on, the grateful soldiers lived inside the temple as rats.

Whether you believe the rats are holy animals representing 20,000 soldiers, or you just believe them to be rats, seeing thousands of them inside of this temple must be impressive. (Even if it would seem at least a little unsanitary.) Source: amusingplanet.com They’re actually kind of cute, when you’re not thinking about how they outnumber you by the thousand.

What They Found In The Desert Using Google Maps…Well You’ll Want To See This

Since the alleged UFO crash of 1947, Roswell, New Mexico, has become the unofficial Mecca for alien enthusiasts. As such, the land, especially the desert near what is now Area 51, is subject to quite a bit of public scrutiny. At any given time, there are dozens of people using Google Maps’ satellite photos to check for signs of anything unusual.

Normally, these folks don’t find much, but recently, it appears that they discovered a very odd shape in the desert near Roswell…it looks an awful lot like a swastika.

The symbol in question can be seen from the air about 70 miles from the town of Roswell itself. Let’s zoom in a bit….

This particular symbol’s location has been known for a few years, but it’s back in the news again after being picked up by a number of paranormal blogs.

While explanations were short on facts, some people speculate that the symbol could be anything from a location beacon for UFOs to an ancient symbol created by Native Americans to communicate with aliens.

Sadly, the more likely conclusion is that the symbol was dug out as a marker for pilots to practice their bombing runs during World War II.

The truth is still out there, it’s just not in an abandoned field 70 miles outside of Roswell.

Better luck next time, guys. Keep looking!

If You Do Any Of These 13 Ridiculous Things, You’re Going Straight To Jail. Well, Technically Anyway.

As countries develop, sometimes the governments need to make strange-sounding laws to allow for the safe growth and development of cities. However, sometimes those laws, when taken out of context and left on the books for decades, may begin to sound a little bizarre. For instance, any law about cheese and pie can’t possibly have made sense at any point… right? Here are 13 very real, yet surely unenforced, laws still in existence today. Photographer Olivia Locher decided to demonstrate them in visual form in these brilliant photographs.

1.) In Alabama, it is illegal to have an ice cream cone in your back pocket at all times.
