New inventions are being made every year. Some of them are very useful and popular, while others not so much. Some of them can be quite weird too. Take a look at some of the weirdest inventions of modern times which you might actually be interested in.
1. One-position bed
This bed will force you to only sleep in one position. If you even try to sleep in any other position, you are going to simply fall off. If you have shortage of space in your room, I guess you might be able to use this.
2. Tomato robot
This robot will be placed on top of you while you are running or jogging, and it has only one job – to feed you tomatoes. I guess this might have worked if it could feed other items as well.
3. Clean handshake
How many times have you resented the decision of shaking hands with some other person since your hand will be contaminated with germs? If you think about this often, then try this new device which will allow you to have a handshake without fearing any transfer of germs.
4. Foot-powered bike
This is a bicycle which runs solely on foot power; it doesn’t have any pedals. However, you will probably feel exhausted after moving a short distance on this bike.
5. Pee pocket
This invention is only for women. It allows women to urinate in a standing position. Although it sounds weird, it is quite popular among women in Amazon.
6. GPS shoes
These shoes have GPS inbuilt, you just need to check the LEDs at the tip of the shoes which will direct you to your desired location. Just don’t get into any accidents.
7. Husband Hunting Bra
A model demonstrates the “Husband Hunting Bra” in Tokyo. Under the bra cups is a clock counting down to the date set by the wearer. When an engagement ring is inserted, the countdown stops
8. Female lap pillows
This is the probably the weirdest invention in this list. These are known as “Hizamakura Lap Pillows” in Japan and these should give you the feeling of a woman’s lap if you sleep on them. Source
We have all heard the stories of pirates and lost ships. The fact that all water bodies have some sort of mystery associated with them is not new. And that is why most people are afraid of water. You vision depth gets much reduced in water and you have no idea who’s going to come and attack you any point of time. Moreover, when you are a lone diver, if any mishap happens, you are on your own. Besides, who doesn’t know about the rumours of big monsters like lochness monster lurking in these oceans? However, sometimes things can get adventurous too, and needless to say, one diver probably experienced a shocking night when he dived into the water in the dark.
“Time left for only one dive”
At the starting of the video, it seems that the police officer is informing the diver that he can complete one more dive today.
The diver then jumps in and starts exploring. A bicycle caught his attention, although considering he jumped in a lake that was not an odd thing to happen.
After that he found a few cinder blocks. What was surprising was that there were chain around those blocks as if they were used to drown someone.
No body found
However, in that case there should have been a body lying around, but the diver couldn’t find it anywhere.
Something seemed out of place
The diver also found a baby’s stroller in the lake. How did it get there?

We know that many people don’t tend to believe in these predictions. If you belong to that group, even then you should read this article. The woman who made the prediction is quite famous for predicting other major events earlier as well, which include the 9/11 attack.
1. Predicted the Boxing Day Tsunami, 2004
Many people would definitely love to believe how this year is going to turn out. This blind woman, who goes by the name, Baba Vanga, has made a terrible prediction for 2016. Note that she is no ordinary person, she earlier predicted successfully the 9/11 attack, the 2004 Boxing Day Tsunami and the rise of ISIS.
2. Lost Eyes at 12
Baba Vanga lost her eyes when she was only 12 by a freak storm. Although she didn’t get back her eyesight, she was gifted something else – the power to predict the future. Unlike others, her predictions’ success rate is quite high, so her predictions need to be taken seriously.
3. Shocking Prediction
According to her, this year, the Islams will invade Europe. The war will start out as a normal one, but will soon turn into a chemical one and finally nuclear warfare. Not only that, but she also believe that the “African American president would be the last acting president of the U.S”. Anyone can understand who she is referring to.
4. Other predictions
She also predicted earlier that China will become the next superpower by 2018. Her earlier successful predictions include the Kursk nuclear submarine disaster, 9/11 terror attacks, the 2004 Boxing Day Tsunami and the rise of ISIS. However, some of her predictions, such as assassination attempts on powerful people in 2014 failed.
Now whether you believe her or not is definitely up to you, but given her past record, she needs to be taken seriously.
The world is a strange place. Every day, so many weird things are going on here. It is almost impossible to predict what is going to happen the next day. This is also due to the fact that we know very little about our own planet than we know about the moon. Did you know that we haven’t even explored 5% of the deeper water bodies?
The world is filled with strange objects and features. Some of them are weird, some of them are strange, some are interesting while some are simply outrageous to believe in. It is true that there are several facts in all fields of science such as history, geography, biology, physics and chemistry which sound completely false because they are so weird and crazy. But whether you believe it or not, these are actually true.
Take a look at these facts below, along with their complete explanation and proof.
Marriages are supposed to be one of the best things that can happen to both genders. Celebrations, cutting the cake, inviting guests, dancing – these are the normal customs and rituals that usually take place in a wedding. But some parts of the world do things differently. These are strange and some are extremely bizarre. Take a look at these rituals below. Note that these might even make you a bit uncomfortable.
East African tribes
In many of east African tribes, there is a ritual that girls in this tribe are forced to stitch everything except a small opening for urine and for menstrual blood in order to prevent them from sex before marriage. Source
In Brazil, men compete to to have sex with women by giving them expensive gifts. Source
In Ghana, widows need to spend a night with any stranger, otherwise the spirit of deceased husband won’t leave her. So widows are forced to stay with strangers in order to keep them away from the spirit.Source
In a New Guinean tribe, they won’t allow girls and boys to share meal together before marriage. But they allow to have sex at age of 6-8 years for girls and 10-12 years for boys. strange ritual na ?Source
In Cook Islands, boys have sex at age of 13 with elder women to learn about it. Elder women will help young boys to learn about sex and to last longer in sex and methods to please their partner.Source
For kreung tribe in Cambodia have a special tradition, special huts are made for young girls to have sex with guys. They spend nights with different guys until they find a suitable partner for them. Then they can live together. Divorce is illegal there.Source
Sambian tribes of New Guinea
The Sambian tribes of New Guinea have a very strange tradition. They keep young men away fro women till marriage. They will be forced to swallow the semen of the tribe’s mightiest warriors. They thinks it’s required for man’s growth.Source
This is probably the stupidest reason. “A lot of blood came out. I am scared” Obviously blood came out. Don’t you know anything about the menstrual cycle?
Even more disturbing is the fact that their parents haven’t informed their daughter about periods. In fact, sometimes they have no idea what is happening. “She is in a lot of pain. Will my daughter be okay?” once asked one of the moms. Lady, have you never heard about periods?
2. Imaginary P00p Problems
This one is probably the most disgusting excuse to visit the hospital. Most of them have the following problem – “I have a tendency to poop soon after our meal. There is something horribly wrong with my bowels”.
Yes, there is a problem. Stop eating excessively spicy things.
3. Bumpy Tongue
Do you know what a tongue scraper is? Apparently, lots of people haven’t heard about it.
A patient came to a hospital stating that he has a problem with his tongue. After a few minutes, the doctor realised that those were the excess taste buds giving his tongue a “bumpy” feeling.
4. The Imaginary Heart Attack
Internet can often increase your knowledge, and can also make you …… dumb. Recently, a patient came complaining that he is having a heart attack. He was immediately taken to the emergency room, where the doctor realised that he was perfectly fine.
Upon asking him what made him think so, he replied that his left arm was in pain.The doctor asked if he goes to a gym, to which he replied in the affirmative.
“Did you work out the left arm more?”
“You know, thatcan cause pain in your arms too.”
5. Ebola scare
This is one of the recent ones. After people came to know how deadly this virus was, they started panicking. Let me tell you some of the reasons why patients think they have Ebola
“I sat next to an African guy on the bus.”
“I had to go to the airport today, where people were constantly coughing.”
“There was a dead bird in my garden.”
“I definitely have Ebola. I can feel it.”
There is only one answer to these – “No one, and I repeat, NO ONE in Michigan has been infected.”
This one was the funniest of the lot. Condoms are extremely elastic but sometimes, they too can break. And this is the reason why a couple once visited a hospital. The woman seemed tensed and was profusely sweating. Her husband gave the reason – “The condom broke. She is extremely worried”.
7. My Vag!na Looks Weird
This one is the weirdest of the lot. Every man and woman should know a bit about their private parts. Otherwise, you might be shocked when you see them after a long time.
Something similar happened recently. A woman came to the hospital because there was something wrong with her vagina. After a “thorough” examination, the doctor realized that she was so obese that she hadn’t looked at her vagina in a long time. “It was her labia”, was the diagnosis.

Sometimes we may need to use words like ‘Bizzare’, “crazy”, ‘Weird’ and ‘Fetish’ etc to describe mental state of some people.
Like, when a crazy man stays 5 hour hiding under a narrow gutter on the pavement just to take upskirt pictures of ladies. What do you even accuse such a fellow with ? Only vulgarity of plain craziness?
Well such was the difficulty confronted by Japanese cops with the Hyogo prefectural police when they captured Yasuomi Hirai.
Yasuomi, 28, allegedly squeezed himself in a section of a gutter 28 centimetres (11 inches) wide, with his head under a bit of iron grating, a police representative said Wednesday.
“His hair got caught at the edge of the grate, which drew the attention of some pedestrians,” the representative for the police reported.
The offense occurred in the port city in August, however the arrest was recorded just this Monday; after a long examination.
Police did not expound but rather the Sports Hochi tabloid reported Tuesday that Hirai kept himself in the little space for around five hours, holding an advanced mobile phone to take photographs from under the mesh.
Local reports said it was not the first run through Hirai has been captured for the same offense, which violated a local ordinance preventing nuisance acts.
He was seized two years prior subsequent to pressing himself into a canal professedly for the same reason, Sports Hochi said.
Yasuomi even said the police that he needed to be reborn as part of pavement in the next life.
parental discretion is advised….. As is the case with many of us, I really can’t resist taking a glimpse into the frightening, the supernatural, the downright creepy. I mean, my compulsion is usuall…

The “bridge of death” in Pripyat following the Chernobyl disaster.
People of the city flocked to this bridge and watched in awe as the multi-colored flames burning from Reactor 4 grew higher. They were told radiation levels were minimal and that they were safe. Little did they know there was an enormous spike in this very spot, thus every person on this bridge died due to fatal doses of radiation
This photo was taken in 1925 of a little girl visiting the grave of her twin sister who had died the year before in a house fire.
Hopefully he isn’t claustrophobic.
I have no idea what to make of this terrifying scene…
This photo was taken on the day of the ladies’ mother’s funeral.
My right mind tells me that there’s some artistry behind this photo, but then again, who really knows?

This photo, taken in Boston in 1975, records a 19-year-old woman and her 2-year-old goddaughter who were trapped in a burning building.
Although authorities were working to save them, the platform collapsed causing a 50-meter fall. The young girl survived because she landed on top of her godmother’s body.
10 Are 19th century photos just inherently creepy? Well, many of them are at least…I’ll let you create the story on this one.
This is the body of a Soviet soldier which was set up this way by Finnish fighters in order to intimidate the Soviets in 1939.
I suppose the original tenants didn’t think about nature vs. nurture.

Every year, alot of people dying by snake bites. Actually all the snakes are not dangerous like we think. Some snakes are venomous but some others are not. Even in venomous snakes, most snake bites are not fatal for human being. Here is the list of most dangerous snakes in the world
5. Inland Taipan
Inland Taipans are mostly found in Australia. Their venom is enough to kill 289 humans in a venom dose.
4. Tiger Snake
They are found in southern regions of Australia, including its coastal islands and Tasmania. They are 10ft in length. The tiger snake uses venom to dispatch its prey, and may bite an aggressor; they are potentially fatal to humans.
3. Blue Krait
Also known as Indian krait or blue krait. Average length is 3 ft but can grow up to 9 ft. Kraits are nocturnal, so it is very rare they encounter humans during daylight hours.
2. Black Mamba
They are found in sub-Saharan Africa. Typical length ranges from (6.6 ft) to (9.8 ft). Its bites can deliver about 100–120 mg of venom on average and the maximum dose recorded is 400 mg. It is reported that before antivenom was widely available, the mortality rate from a bite was nearly 100%. The bite of a black mamba can potentially cause collapse in humans within 45 minutes, or less.
They are mostly found in American continents. Rattlesnake bites are the leading cause of snakebite injuries in North America. However, rattlesnakes rarely bite unless provoked or threatened; if treated promptly, the bites are rarely fatal.
