The world in which we live has so many secrets that we will probably never know. We’ve been living on this planet for 6 million years or, at least, our early ancestors have and we still don’t know much of what is going on around us. That is why, from time to time, we need some reminders of the wonders and cool things and curiosities that are among us. Whether they are made by our own hands or they’re simply nature’s way of expressing itself, we will present you with 17 cool things to know in the world that you might not know about. Ready? Let’ go!
1. Balcony of floor 103 in Chicago – just like flying
2. The same balcony from the outside – creepy
3. Danxia landform. Only seen in China, the colours are the result of red sandstone and other types of rocks that have gathered there for millions of years.
4. Morning Glory or a gathering of clouds in the Gulf of Carpentaria, northen Australia. Probably, having a chat
5. 260 kilometers of traffic jam. For all of you who suffer from traffic jam and have no experienced this kind of traffic jam, just shut up!
6. Buford, USA. Population: 1. He’s also a mayor and a janitor
7. Haus Rizzi- Germany. It’s about having a laugh
