1. The Most Beautiful Abandoned Railway Station in the World
This is an abandoned railway station in Abkhazia, former Russian territory. It stays untouched since the collapse of USSR – the railway connection of Abkhazia and Russia stopped and railway station left out of demand so nature could take over the left-overs of Soviet architecture.

3. Guilt Free Egg Fried ‘Rice’
Substitute rice with finely grated Cauliflower! Yes, it’s Cauliflower, but it tastes just like a lighter version of rice! A very yummy recipe (healthy hangover food) found on The Londoner. I didn’t have any coconut oil or any of that, just added soy sauce and some worcestershire sauce. [Proof that it was tried & tested by Messy Nessy].

9. Guy finds Military Ordnance Hidden in his House
I had bought the house in April of 2005. Three months later, I was considering running a new cable tv drop. So I grabbed a flashlight and went to a closet in the basement where I was considering drilling the hole for the cable, when I noticed something shiny behind a random and oddly placed small section of peg board. I pulled the peg board back and noticed 3 silver cylinders a little bigger than a cigar. I took one and read the label. To my amusement, they were military issue parachute flares that I assumed were used in Vietnam. It wasn’t until then that I noticed the much bigger black cylinder. One of my favorite movies is “Saving Private Ryan”. I am not a military man, but I know what Comp B is! So naturally, I freaked out. I rounded up the family, told my wife to take them to Grandma’s. I called the police and explained the situation and the officer that answered seemed a bit amused by my story, he told me to hold on while he spoke to his colleague and I heard him say: “I want to go, I gotta see this”. So while I am waiting for them to show up, I took down as much info as I could without disturbing the cylinder because I wanted them to see the cobwebs attached to the mortar, thus proving that I was not the owner of this device. When I found out that it had a 15m lethal blast radius, I decided to spend the rest of the evening outdoors. So the police show up, I took them to the basement, they took one look at the ordnance and decided it was best to stay outside. They opted to communicate via cell phone instead of radio because they did not want the news outlets to get wind of the situation. The officers contacted the county bomb squad. They would not touch it because it was a military ordnance. So they contacted Selfridge Air Force base ( I live in SE Michigan) and while they waited, they were discussing possibly evacuating some of my neighbors (who I hadn’t even met yet) and closing the entire block. At this point, there are about 3 police cars in front of my house and the neighbors are getting curious. It is 11PM on a Thursday and every neighbor within 10 houses is on their porch. One neighbor decided to walk his dog in front of my house trying to eavesdrop on the conversation between myself and the officers. It was then, that 3 black unmarked Suburbans with US Government plates pull up to my house. About 12-15 men exited the vehicles in Military Fatigues and spent the next 45 minutes walking in and out of my house. Needless to say, at this point almost every neighbor on the block was outside, trying figure out what was happening. Some were on their cell phones. I could only imagine what they were thinking. After all, we were the new unknown neighbors who kept to ourselves. So the military took the mortar and the parachute flares. They checked the rest of the basement and found nothing, then left. The house was built in 1970, I assume the mortar and flares had been there since the 1st owner.

11. A Secret Cold War Bunker under Brooklyn Bridge?
The Brooklyn bridge, one of the oldest suspension bridges in US, was also one of the sites to be used as bunkers in case there was an attack from USSR during the height of cold war era. A few years back a group of workers conducting their regular inspection found a secret vault in the foundations of the Brooklyn Bridge, near the East river shoreline. The supplies, almost 45 years old at that time, consisting of medicines, water containers, blankets and almost 350,000 packets of crackers were safely sealed in airtight containers. Some containers were marked 1952, the year when Soviet Union launched its first satellite, while the others were marked 1962, the year of Cuban missile crisis. The huge cache of food and medicine suggest that the government had prepared safety bunker at the basement of the bridge in case there was an invasion or attack from the Soviets…
