The Deepest Indoor Pools in the World

Nemo 33 (above) is an indoor non-chlorinated fresh water facility in Brussels, Belgium. It held the Guinness World Record as the deepest indoor swimming pool in the world between its opening on 1 May 2004, and the completion of "Y-40 The Deep Joy" at Hotel Terme Millepini in Montegrotto Terme, Padua, Italy on 5 June 2014.

The Deep Joy

Nemo’s maximum depth is 34.5 metres (113 ft), The Deep Joy has a depth of 40 me4trews (131 ft). Both were designed for leisure dives, dive training and photo shoots, with ledges and underwater glass viewing panels for those who don’t want to get wet.



The above black spots may look spiders trapped in quartz but they are mineral deposits called Mannardite phantoms that come in varied forms. Some other examples:


Alien eggs?

What looks like a scene out of Alien of baby aliens waiting to hatch is actually a cabbage field.


Another alien?

Nope, just a pomegranate where it has opened early, the seeds being white rather than red and looking like teeth.



Not the shadows of the twins from The Shining but from the water bottles. Not something you want to see at night.


You take the stairs . . .

Recently, the tourism authorities in Linzhou, Henan province decided to make the mountains accessible to tourists, so they came up with an interesting solution, a 92m/300 foot spiral staircase.

Nicknamed the “Stairway to Heaven", the massive spiral staircase China’s Taihang Mountains allows visitors to see the beautiful natural scenery.

Before going up the stairs, visitors must sign a consent form for their heart and lung diseases and problems such as fear. People over 60 years old are not allowed to climb the stairs.


We’re gonna need a bigger boat . . .

Icicle Ghost:

Just a collection of winter icicles but something you may not want to see at or outside your window at night.


A meeting of the KKK?

No, just folded umbrellas.


The red ghost:

The photographer only realised what ha had captured after looking at the photograph; a woman shaking out a bedsheet but looking like a red Dementor from Harry Potter.
