Well, somebody put a big metal monolith up somewhere in Southeast Utah. Like everything else, it's probably gonna end up being an ad for a new Marvel movie. We'd love to say aliens or ancient prophecies aren't off the table, but for now it looks like a big piece of metal some artist or publicity team crammed into the ground.

Eye-Twisting Moments of Strange Perspective

The world isn't always straight forward. Sometimes you're looking at it from the side, or some other angle that obscures your view of someone's face. It's these illusions of eye-defying double-takery that can make us go "waaahhh" while trying to figure out if that's a dog or a boat. Foreground be damned, doubletake inducing photos of skewed perspective are here to stay.

Weird Rules that Exist for Specific Reasons

Just about every workplace has a special rule that exists just because of something one person did. From warning labels to work policies, every strange rule started off as a unique and horrible adventure. Human stupidity is the only resource it's impossible to run out of, so there's a rich deposit of things that exist just because people are dumb.

We may be a few years away from a complete robot takeover of the world, but now we know that when it happens, the descendants of these creepy-ass, bolt-sucking electricity munchers will be able to replace you and your family while making full and completely realistic eye contact.

Strange and Unique Stuff People Tried Selling Online

Online marketplaces connect everyone in a fascinating world of supply and demand, where sometimes the supply is old benches from fast food places, uniquely shaped Cheetos, and extremely realistic horror-themed baby dolls. There's not a whole lot of demand for all the weird and bad stuff people try to sell online, but at least it's a spectacle.

Fascinating Friend is Perplexed by Obvious Stuff

Whether it's a combination of being sheltered, homeschooling, living in an extremely remote place, or being an undercover alien trying to understand earth, this person's friend got some attention for having some serious gaps in their knowledge. It's weird to be reminded that some folks don't get the memo and you have to explain really obvious things to people.

Un-Self-Aware and Freaky Old Album Covers

You can't blame an artist for putting their heart and soul out there and doing their best. But you can totally laugh at weird and awkward album covers that use extremely tacky imagery or have become a straight up double entendre over time. There's no way of knowing if your band name is gonna become a synonym for a sex act, but hey, it happens.

Weird Things Found in Elevator Shafts

At some time in their life, everyone realizes that there's a really little gap in between an elevator and a building's floor. Hopefully they realize it as a precautionary measure. Others realize this as their phone or keys are sliding through. For a fun story, here's a time an entitled mom tried to speak to an elevator tech's supervisor, but he was it.

Intriguing Images of Puzzling Double-Takery

Of all the amazing things our eyes do for us, it's kind of surprising how easily they can be tricked by just a little bit of messing with some light and shadows. Nevertheless, double-take-inducing images of skewed perspective will endure as a quizzical pastime for our beleaguered light-and-movement-sensing optical goo.

Things That Seem to Take Ages

Our perception of time can be seriously altered by what's going on, especially if we're under incredible stress, experiencing uncertainty, or microwaving a burrito in a completely quiet house. Time and space can also change based on where you live, as evidenced by this Tumblr thread on cultures colliding over time and space.

People get upset over the dumbest things thanks to their own paranoia, assuming malice in people, or extremely non-standard view of how people ought to act.
