If you ever had too much free time on your hands you’ve probably searched for those little-known subreddits that few people know exist. In case you stumbled across a subreddit called ‘WTF’ you were probably amazed by the collection of the most unlikely, and often bizarre, photos that could be found online.
For those who don’t feel like scrolling through Reddit for days, hunting for the most interesting photos, we’ve complied a list of 50 of the most bizarre, hard to explain, photos ever taken. From snapshots depicting scenes worthy of a horror movie, to quirky natural phenomena and questionable inventions, these photos will make you think.
‘Cabin In Alaska For Rent, Lovely View’
Either he just wanted to say hello to the visitors, or his intentions were less friendly. The latter seems more likely to us. Polar bears rarely look kindly to someone invading their turf. In any case, there’s something disturbing about this photo.
I see you!
This glass eye was found embedded in the rock at a beach. It remains a mystery who put it there and why. Perhaps it was a group of pirates or smugglers and one of them had a glass eye he no longer needed. Finding something like this can really creep you out!
‘My Venus Flytrap Uses All Its Energy To Make 200 Mouths Instead Of Growing Big’
All those innocent flies, mosquitos, and spiders who have the misfortune to wander close to this deathly plant have very slim chances of survival. Us humans are fortunate the Venus Flytrap doesn’t grow too big.
‘This Cemetery Fire From Yesterday Looks Like A Horror Movie’s Climax’
Fortunately, no one was caught up in this fiery inferno. No one alive, that is.
‘Fiat Had A Test Track On Their Factory Rooftop In 1929’
That’s what we call efficient use of space. Why carry out tests on the ground when you can do it on a rooftop?
‘Sinkhole Opened In Cornish Backyard, Leading 300ft Down Into A Medieval Mineshaft’
For a moment we thought we were looking at a really cool graphics overhaul mod for Minecraft! If someone is brave enough to actually descend into this really old mineshaft, we can only hope he doesn’t encounter creepers and skeletons down there.
‘Found This Clown Mannequin Half A Mile Deep Into A Drainage Pipe Tied Like This To A Grate’
It’s IT! One more reason not to ever think about what’s lurking inside drainage pipes. Some questions are better left unanswered!
Judging by the look of that cat, the alligator can count himself lucky he has that door between himself and the beligerent feline. He certainly won’t enter on her watch!
Those old Nokias are indestructible
Thousands of years from now, when future archeologists dig up this wall, they will uncover the Nokia too. Perhaps that was precisely the intention of whoever did this.
‘Ct Scan Of 1,000-Year-Old Buddha Sculpture Reveals Mummified Monk Hidden Inside’
We have a winner of the Most Creative Tomb in the Last Millennium contest. It never cease to amaze you what a CT Scan can reveal.
‘Train After Failing To Brake Finds Itself On Top Of A Giant Whale Statue!’
If it were a real, live whale, it would have been hailed as a hero. While the photo looks awesome, it’s easy to overlook the fact that a major accident could’ve easily occurred.
Pellets inside a patient’s head
When a patient came in to complain of new-onset seizures, the CT scan revealed small metal pellents in his head. As it turned out, his wife accidentally shot him several years ago. We’re as shocked as you are!
When in Rome…
We’re not quite sure what the heck is going on here but it looks like a really creepy storm resembling a scene from a Hitchcock movie. If, by some chance, you ever find yourself outside and see the sky looking like this… run!
A secret in the basement bathroom
A contractor bought a foreclosed home to renovate and found something peculiar in the basement bathroom. Perhaps there’s a rational explanation behind the mystery, someone could’ve been using the house for making a horror movie. The alternatives are too disturbing to contemplate.
‘Raising Anchor Of Your Oil Tanker Only To Realize You’ve Hooked An Unexploded Torpedo’
Earth’s seas and oceans hide many secrets, some of them quite deathly. The Hunt for Red October someone?
‘I Was Driving Through The Back Roads Of Pennsylvania On The Way To A Camping Spot And Found A Mountain Of Ceramic Dishes And Tea Cups In The Middle Of The Woods!?’
Even plates have to be buried somewhere. Who knows what secrets can you discover while driving through those peaceful back roads far from the hustle and bustle of civilization?
‘My Girlfriend Sent Me This From Her Doctors Appointment’
If that wasn’t reason enough for her to cancel the appointment, we don’t know what was. Run while you still can!
‘No Filters. Australia Is Red From Wildfires’
We usually refer to Mars as the ‘Red Planet’ but natural disasters can often transform parts of our own planet into red wastes. Another warning and a lesson to us of the fragility of the Earth’s ecosystem.
‘You’re Not Taking This Grandma’s Purse’
Nobody messes with her! If Joker had taken similar measures to protect himself in the subway, disaster could have been averted while there was still time.
‘My 6 Yr Old: “How Will He Go Poop If His Tail Is Inside His Butthole?!”’
One more reason to make sure children’s book illustrations are anatomically correct. This 6 year-old may have been clever enough to see something was amiss but we can’t count on other kids being able to do so too.
‘In Algeria We Have These Weird Things In Public Parks And Children’s Playgrounds’
They look kind of mean. Creepy as well. We’d give them a wide berth if we found ourselves passing nearby.
‘Oh, Let Me Just Park My Squid’
Squidward has left Bikini Bottom! Unfortunately, he didn’t do too well on dry land.
‘What, Exactly, Was The Sequence Of Events That LED To This?’
An even larger bird stooped down and… well you can get the idea what might have happened next. The real explanation is probably more prosaic, the bird simply died while sitting on the branch and the feet stayed anchored to it while the rest of the body decayed or fell apart. In case you’re wondering how’s that possible, bird claws enable avians to automatically clench onto branches and stay clenched even during sleep.
’27 Contact Lenses Were Found By Doctors In Woman’s Eye’
That’s just… gross. As if one contact lense isn’t tricky to deal with.
‘So This Lizard Moved Into My Microwave Clock. I Guess It’s His Now?’
If it moved in it can move out, right? None of what we’re seeing here makes sense so we’ll just leave it to you to ponder on it.
‘Got A Complaint At Work About “Very Loud Crickets” In The Bathroom’
Crickets too have to use a bathroom. Getting out can prove to be a problem, though.
‘Camping In Florida Looks Fun’
They’re just looking for some company! Maybe not exactly human company so keep away if you ever come across a group of alligators chilling out in the sun.
‘Sometimes People Stop In The Middle Of A Conversation To Stare At My Eye. Wonder Why’
Creepy as it may look, this is a condition called coloboma, which sometimes involves a displaced pupil but doesn’t affect the person’s vision. Could be a useful piece of information in case you ever meet a person who has coloboma and your first impression is that you’re looking into the eye of an alien.
‘I Really Have No Idea What Happened’
At first glance, we assumed the boys were statues painted in silver. Turns out they are street performers, or living statues who pose as mannequins. These boys, sadly, are Indonesia’s silver painted beggars.
‘Oregon Fires Next To A Golf Course’
There’s something ironic about this photo. Mainly, the contrast between people playing golf and the raging wildfire devouring the forest in the background. A real example of walking a thin line between civilization and chaos.
‘Vandals Painted A Complete Train Silver In A Small Town In The Netherlands 2 Nights Ago’
Sometimes vandals can have an artistic side. We see a very cool looking, futuristic train. Although… the fact that the windows too have been painted may prove problematic.
‘A “Zombie Spider” – Spider Covered In Fungus, Half-Dead, Half-Alive Which Can Crawl Around. Found In My Basemen’
Our theory is that the spider and the fungus covering it have become symbiotic. For all we know, the fungus may even grant the spider special powers. Whatever the case, we wouldn’t want to find a spider like this in our basement.
‘Your Typical First Day Of Your Job As The It Guy’
A typical first day of work can be quite interesting, but hopefully not as interesting as discovering a snake inside a phone company box. Is it just us or you also think the snake enjoys in its popularity?
‘A Humpback Whale Was Found Dead In Amazon Rainforest’
What do the ocean and the Amazon rainforest have in common? Honestly, we have no idea, expect that, perhaps, they’re both quite wet. Jokes aside, the carcass was, in fact, found washed up on a small island near the mouth of the Amazon river, close to the ocean.
‘This Power Line Happened To Be Laid Straight Through The Skull Of An Anglo Saxon Woman Buried In A Previously Undiscovered 6th Century Graveyard’
No one knows what the future has in store for us, even long after our deaths. There’s something deeply touching about how the long-dead woman’s grave has been uncovered.
Goat in a sack
We get the idea. What we don’t get is why.
‘Hail From The Weekend Here In Queensland, Australia’
For a moment, it appeared as if it was a brand new type of tennis ball used at the Australian Open tennis tournament. A hail of this size could easily led to someone getting hurt.
‘Stopped Cause I Thought My Tire Popped, But I’m Pretty Sure Someone Tried To Murder Me’
A close call indeed. Time to seek help from the police.
‘I’m So Glad I Don’t Live In The Same Time As Quetzalcoatlus Northropi’
The largest flying creature ever must’ve looked impressive during its heyday millions of years ago when it ruled the ancient skies. Quetzalcoatlus northropi lived during the Cretacius period and could grow to have a wingspan of 36 feet! That’s approximately the wingspan of an F-16 fighter! Makes you feel small, doesn’t it?
‘I Split Up With My Boyfriend Yesterday. I Fell Asleep While He Was Packing And He Stole My Toilet’
A bitter ex can be quite creative when it comes to taking revenge on their former partner but this guy takes the cake. We can’t help but wonder how on earth did he come up with the idea to steal a toilet?
