This Land Mine Internet Mystery Is One Of The Greatest Trolls We've Ever Seen

Dating back to December 31, 2015 Redditor KnightofSunlight posted a mysterious photo to r/WhatsThisThing---the forum that asks the internet help for identifying unknown objects. Fast forward a bit and the thread determined that the photo this dude uploaded was actually a land mine, and that he'd been inactive for a long time; and that's when the sh*t really hit the fan.

That just looks like a cute couple right? No! Look again, there's more to it! 



Do you see the face in the window there? Maybe it's a mirror but that doesn't make it okay that a scary version of her face is looking right at the camera from that reflection. 

So what's going on here? Are ghosts real or is this some kind of April Fools day thing?

Via BBC:

The vast plume was initially spotted by amateur astronomers in 2012, and appeared twice before vanishing.

Scientists have now analysed the images and say that say the formation, stretching for more than 1,000km, is larger than any seen before.

Writing in the journal Nature, the researchers believe the plume could be a large cloud or an exceptionally bright aurora.

However, they are unsure how these could have formed in the thin upper reaches of the Martian atmosphere.

"It raises more questions than answers," said Antonio Garcia Munoz, a planetary scientist from the European Space Agency.

In 7,500 BCE, this city in the Mesopotamian region (now Turkey) held thousands of people and is believed by many to be one of the world's earliest urban settlements. But the culture of the people here was unlike anything we know today. First of all, they built the city like a honeycomb, with houses sharing walls. Homes and buildings were accessed by doors cut into the roofs. People would stroll on the streets across these roofs, and climb down ladders to get to their living quarters. Doorways were often marked with bulls' horns, and dead family members were buried in the floor of each home. It's not clear what happened to the culture of the people who lived in this city.
