Talk about a textbook perfect ditch. This landing is so dang masterful that it makes the whole process look a lot easier than it actually is. Apparently if the pilot misses the mark by the slightest amount the whole plane can end up being destroyed.

Creepy Signs That Aren't Fooling Around

We live in a world full of unconventional hazards. Random explosions, sinkholes, radiation, chlorine gas leaks, gorilla escapes, sewage tidal waves and mosquitos are all things that we feel need some kind of creepy warning signs for. Oh, also aerated water, poisonous plants, electricity, slippery rocks, angry hippos, quicksand and heavy machinery need some spooky warning signs as well. Also cliffs.

So, somehow this reckless driver was also on the phone while all this was going on. Will be fascinated to learn more about the backstory behind this incident out at Daytona Beach.

Tsunamis are absolutely mortifying. There's something hard wired into our DNA that basically just trembles in fear whenever you see one in action. The sheer power of those tsunamis is at once humbling and traumatizing. We're just grateful that these guys were able to get out of that intense situation safely.

This is one of those videos where it feels like what's happening is far too absurd to be real life. Yet, here we are. A throwback gem which involves a golf course out in Brisbane, where golfers are forced to deal with a hole that has literal sharks swimming around in the waters. Shout out to bull sharks for being so impressively adaptable to their environment.

Just because someone's being paid to do their job doesn't mean that they're not prone to moments of complete and helpless failure. Some failures are more impactful than others. This particular failtastrophe involves a power plant chimney falling across some wires and right on into some poor and unfortunate building storing transformers.

Creepy and Imposing Signs That Aren't Messing Around

They say what you don't know can't hurt you. The "they" in that phrase seems not to have ever heard about dangerous heavy equipment, poisonous trees, and looming monkey attacks. These creepy signs make their message clear about what's coming for whom, and that's probably a good thing. Even though these terrifying signs speak the language of fear, they're still trying to tell us something, and that's better than nothing.

The Most Dangerous Things People Have Eaten

We've all heard stories about stuff like poisonous blowfish, but when you really think about it, there's a surprising number of foods that can kill you. It's not just poisonous foods, but also strange and specific allergies, extremely dodgy and less than hygienically stuff, or just something you might just choke on. There's a wide world of dangerous food out there, and many of us have found ourselves on the wrong end of the spoon. People will also eat the worst things, simply out of politeness.

It's probably not a good idea to smash a superheated metal ball with a hammer without a plan. Okay, we're gonna go out on a limb here and say it's definitely a bad idea to smash a superheated metal ball with a hammer unless you're a blacksmith who know why he's smashing that ball in the first place. And it's probably an even worse idea to do it in a t shirt. That said, the result is some real chaos god/level 60 battlemage material.

We see warning signs every day, and some hazards become more "everyday" than others. These spooky signs go above and beyond when addressing strange, overly specific, or even vague danger. Spooky signs say a lot with their creepiness.

Man Acts Like Tough Guy, Ignores Horrendous Stomachache, Crisis Ensues

Let this guy's harrowing tale about ignoring an unimaginably gnarly stomachache be a lesson to us all. If you have a stomachache, and the waves of pain have progressed to literal tidal waves of pain, then something is definitely not right. You might already know someone who has had to confront the unfortunate reality of having a ruptured appendix. The key with those occurrences is to be proactive in the response, and not let things escalate to a life-threatening extent. 

Man tries to be a tough guy, ignores terrible stomachache, total crisis ensues.

Frightening Signs That Mean Serious Business

With the many threats in this world, we thankfully have ominous signs to go with them. While it's extremely frightening to see a sign that says "falling snakes" or "invisible poison gas area" or "molten lead splatter zone" it's still better that we have the warning in the first place. With all the varied and creative threats to dodge, it's no question why we have all these creepy signs that make their message clear.

Anyone who has ever skied knows that the sport can bring with it gnarly moments where you lose control while ripping down a slope, and wipe out like you never thought possible. Now, factor in the fact that this downhill skier was screaming down the mountain at a measly 75MPH, and then consider the fact that they were still able to make a recovery, and you've got nothing short of a miraculous event.

Creepy Signs That Make Their Message Clear

The world is full of unforeseen hazards, and we can thank creepy sign makers for clueing the rest of us in on all the junk we could step into. Spooky signs say a lot with their creepiness and sometimes the sign itself is scarier than the danger. That said most of us would prefer not to fall into a radioactive mine shaft so we can thank these spooky signs even if they're too dang scary.

Can you imagine what must've been racing through this motorcyclist's brain when he flew through the air, after crashing into the car in front of him, and then miraculously sticks the landing like it was all part of the master plan? I'd guess nothing short of pure disbelief. He looks like he was somehow unharmed. Seriously though, what an unreal turn of events.
