From the Diamond Maruti Car Circus in India, this act is called the Wall of Death. I would have called it, the Wall of Yiii-Hawwww!

Move over UFC, Alligator wrestling is a sport on the rise to the top, where a competitor dives into a deep pool with an alligator, and has 10 minutes to show off their best wrestle moves. Alligator wrestlers are scored in six categories: aggressiveness of the alligator, difficulty of the move, style, appearance, showmanship and water-wrangling. Apparently this sort of thing has been going on for generations. Chomp.

This place looks freezing! -12 to be exact. These are the Chena Hot Springs outside of Fairbanks. These dudes were told that wet hair would freeze if you ran outside so of course the theory was tested :)


Unfortunately for Ken Block, coming too fast into a corner he crashed into a ditch on the second day of the WRC in Mexico.

Aokigahara is a place at the foot of Mt. Fuji which is beautiful yet dense and is a place where a lot of people commit suicide. Hundreds of bodies have been found here and as an effort to stop people from committing suicides, there are sign posts that tell people to reconsider suicide. As Mt. Fuji is sacred, some probably feel blessed to be able to die here.

The nature of the place is very foreboding and you will hear nothing but the forest when you move in just a few kilometers from the border. It is believed that the unsettled souls come to this place to scream their frustrations into the winds. The foresters have a job of looking for bodies in this forest and they come across them often, either hanging from trees or eaten away by predators.

Japan is bracing itself for bad times after many extremely rare, giant Oarfish have washed ashore and been caught in coastal fisherman’s nets.

Sightings of these fish started after the ‘quake in Chile and the 6.4 magnitude earthquake in Taiwan. The recent tectonic shifting around the Pacific is raising concern that Japan is next.

The Oarfish is traditionally known as a messenger fish from the sea gods, and it’s tidings are usually grim. The fish can grow up to five metres in length and usually found at depths of 1, 000 ft. Long and slender with a dorsal fin that runs the length of it’s body.

According to folklore, the fish will come ashore and beach itself to warn of an impending earthquake and there are scientific theories that bottom-dwelling fish may very well be susceptible to movements in seismic fault lines and act in uncharacteristic ways in advance of an earthquake, although we do have the option to believe that or the constant high-tech monitoring of the tectonic plates beneath the surface. Fingers crossed those fish are just Godzilla and not something worse.
