Did You Know That Russian Tourists In A Polish National Park Mistook A Bear For …

Two Russian tourists were vacationing in Zakopane, Poland when they decided to visit Tatra National Park located in Tatra Mountains. Only they got into the park without buying tickets.
Suddenly, they saw a bear coming towards them but thought it was an employee of the Park, dressed in a bear costume, who was going to charge them for entering without paying. Supposedly, they wanted to “punch him just once so he would keep quite” as the two later told the Tatra Park management. But when employees, alerted by other tourists, came to the spot where the event took place, they found the Russians covered in blood and the bear unconscious.
The bear named Samson got nine stitches on the head and was taken to Krakow’s Zoo, Poland, for treatment. The Russians were sentenced to pay for Samson’s treatment and are going to be sued according to Polish laws regarding nature preservation.

TOP Strange Mysteries you haven’t heard of (p1)

What Happened To Frederick Valentich?
Frederick Valentich was 20 years old in October 1978, when he flew a Cessna 182L light aircraft towards King Island, Australia. As he flew over the Bass Strait, he stayed in touch with Melbourne Air Traffic Control until their communication was cut by a strange noise.
During the radio transmission, Valentich made frequent mention of “a strange aircraft hovering on top of me.” He tells the controller, “It is hovering and it is not an aircraft,” and describes the object further by saying, “Delta Sierra Juliet – Melbourne. It seems like it’s (stationary) or (chasing me). What I’m doing right now is orbiting, and the thing is just orbiting on top of me also … It’s got a green light, and sort of metallic (like). It’s all shiny (on) the outside.”
Over on the shoreline, plumber Ray Manifold had set up a time lapse camera in a bid to catch the sun dropping over the horizon. When the photos were developed, an object travelling at speed was seen to come out of the water, and witnesses interviewed by the Scientific Journal of Exploration reported an “erratically moving green light” in the sky at the same time Valentich was in the air.
Frederick Valentich’s conversation with Melbourne ATC was the last anyone ever heard of him. He and his aircraft simply vanished into thin air, prompting Adelaide researcher Keith Basterfield to state after 34 years of investigation “”The only thing we can say for sure is that the plane and pilot disappeared while he was describing a UFO – which is one of those things that just makes people wonder.”
Overtoun Bridge
The beautiful Overtoun Bridge in Dumbarton, Scotland has a grisly history. Built in 1859, the bridge has become known as “The Dog Suicide Bridge,” referring to up to 600 dogs that have leapt from its parapet in the last 50 years. The dogs all jumped in the same direction from the same point of the bridge, plunging 50 feet to the rocks below. Dogs that have survived the drop have been known to repeat their dive again, resulting in the second fall killing them.
Theories abound as to what is causing the dogs to leap from the bridge, with supernatural forces, depression transmitted from owner to pet, dogs willingly and intentionally committing suicide, and a scent from under the bridge drawing them to their deaths being the main reasons discussed.
Raining Blood in India
During the 2001 monsoon season, residents of Kerala in southern India were bewildered by a blood red rain that fell between July 25 and September 23. Loud thunder was followed by trees shedding leaves with a shrivelled and burnt appearance, and deluges of crimson water stained the land and the clothes of locals.
Scientists concluded that algae spores were responsible for the unusual colouring and the matter was closed until 2006, when the rain returned. A 2008 theory from two Mahatma Gandhi University researchers hypothesized that “The mysterious red colour in the rain is caused by unidentified life form that does not have DNA….The molecular composition of these cells is yet to be identified.” The rain caused further concern on its most recent visit in 2012.

8 Embarrassing Photos of People Who Got Stuck

Man who had to be rescued from a McDonald's high chair

Man who had to be rescued from a McDonald's high chair
An unnamed man in Cork, Ireland stopped by a McDonald's outlet and, for some reason, he sat in a high chair designed for infants and toddlers. When he couldn't get out, police were called. They managed to free the man from the high chair and no charges were filed. 

However, witnesses, who say alcohol was involved, managed to snap a picture that went viral. A spokesman for McDonald's remarked that anyone using a high chair in their restaurants should always have adult supervision. (Via)

 Man stuck in a toilet bowl in Claremont

Man stuck in a toilet bowl in Claremont
An unnamed man was rescued from a toilet in Claremont, Cape Town in May 2013. The man had somehow gotten himself stuck in the bowl of a portable loo on a building site. He was so stuck, in fact, that only his legs, arms, and head were sticking out! According to Baydu Adams, a Cape Town blogger who witnessed the bizarre situation unfold, passers-by heard a panicked shouting coming from inside the toilet.

Upon finding the man, it took about 40 minutes for security, police, and some helpful onlookers to find a way to rescue him. “The funny part was that while two or three people were trying to help, others were taking pictures and videos,” says Baydu.

Baydu says that some of the gathering crowd commented that the man's eyes were red and he looked high. He couldn't have been homeless, Baydu adds, because he had an iPhone or iPod with him. (Link)

 Student who needed help from firefighters after getting his head stuck in a chair

Student who needed help from firefighters after getting his head stuck in a chair
In 2005, Jimmy Skufka, a fourth grade student at Turtleville Elementary School, got his head stuck in a chair while "pretending to be Anakin Skywalker trying to battle Boba Fett."

Skufka reportedly poked his head through a hole in a back support and wore the chair like a body shield, madly flailing the legs like a battery of 4 light sabers. It wasn't until study hall ended that Skufka discovered he was hopelessly jammed in the chair. Firefighters from the Turtleville Emergency Squad were called in with bolt cutters and hacksaws to free the boy, who was badly shaken but not harmed. (Link)

 Robber who got stuck in an air shaft

Robber who got stuck in an air shaft
In 2007, a man who was trying to rob a pharmacy wound up crying for help after becoming stuck in an air shaft for 10 hours. It took firefighters an hour and a half to free Jeffery Mumani, 25, from the metal air shaft at a CVS store.

On a Monday night, Mumani removed an air conditioning cover and tried to enter the store via the shaft but became trapped. The man began calling for help at about 8 a.m. the next day. Mumani suffered only minor cuts and was in stable condition. He was charged with commercial burglary, among other charges. (Link)

 Prisoner who got stuck in a wall during an attempted escape

Prisoner who got stuck in a wall during an attempted escape
A Brazilian prisoner's attempt to escape from jail ended in humiliating and amusing failure when the overweight criminal got stuck halfway. Amused guards snapped photos after discovering the portly prisoner wedged in his getaway hole.

Using a metal pipe ripped from a shower, the prisoner and an accomplice had smashed a hole through a concrete wall at a jail in the Brazilian state of Goias. After the smaller man crawled through and escaped, our tubby hero made his bid for freedom. Unfortunately for him, despite the frantic efforts of fellow prisoners trapped behind him in the cell, he was wedged tightly. Guards called firefighters, who used a sledgehammer to free the unnamed prisoner. (Link)

 Teen who was stuck in a Chimney

Teen who was stuck in a Chimney
Here comes Santa Claus? Nope, it's actually a 17-year-old kid trying to come down the chimney. Instead, he ended up being stuck for almost 12 hours! Some might call it karma: The teen was actually trying to rob the house, police say.

Georgia firefighters pulled soot-covered Renaldo Jack out of the chimney and promptly arrested him. His neighbor, Edyn Rodriguez, told the paper that he heard someone yelling for help, so he called 911.

But wait, there's more! The owner of the home Jack tried to rob told the local TV station that she had no idea someone was stuck in her chimney for the entire night. (Link)

An Australian toddler was so determined to help himself to sweets from a lolly machine that he climbed through the tiny dispensing hatch, ending up imprisoned inside four walls of glass.

Cohen Stone, 2, climbed inside the claw grabber machine in an Italian restaurant, where his mother, Kyra, 24, had brought him to celebrate a friend's birthday.

A local locksmith was called to Siena's restaurant to free the little boy, who was released 45 minutes later. (Link)

 Drunken Swedish moose stuck in an apple tree

Drunken Swedish moose stuck in an apple tree
It's not a person, but it's equally bizarre. A moose is seen stuck in an apple tree in Gothenburg, Sweden on September 6, 2011. The moose was trying to eat apples from the tree and the police believe the animal became intoxicated by the fermented apples. The moose was freed by police officers and, after taking a nap on the lawn, he sobered up and returned to the woods. 

10 Most Bizarre People on Earth

1-Ngoc: three decades without sleep

Sixty-four-year-old Thai Ngoc, known as Hai Ngoc, said he could not sleep at night after getting a fever in 1973, and has counted infinite numbers of sheep during more than 11,700 consecutive sleepless nights. "I don't know whether the insomnia has impacted my health or not. But I'm still healthy and can farm normally like others," Ngoc said. Proving his health, the elderly resident of Que Trung commune, Que Son district said he can carry two 50kg bags of fertilizer down 4km of road to return home every day. His wife said, 

"My husband used to sleep well, but these days, even liquor cannot put him down." She said when Ngoc went to Da Nang for a medical examination, doctors gave him a clean bill of health, except a minor decline in liver function. Ngoc currently lives on his 5ha farm at the foot of a mountain busy with farming and taking care of pigs and chickens all day. His six children live at their house in Que Trung. Ngoc often does extra farm work or guards his farm at night to prevent theft, saying he used three months of sleepless nights to dig two large ponds to raise fish. 

Bhagat: had his twin brother on his stomach

Sanju Bhagat's stomach was once so swollen he looked nine months pregnant and could barely breathe. iving in the city of Nagpur, India, Bhagat said he'd felt self-conscious his whole life about his big belly. But one night in June 1999, his problem erupted into something much larger than cosmetic worry. Mehta said that he can usually spot a tumor just after he begins an operation. But while operating on Bhagat, Mehta saw something he had never encountered. As he cut deeper into Bhagat's stomach, gallons of fluid spilled out — and then something extraordinary happened. "First, one limb came out, then another limb came out. Then some part of genitalia, then some part of hair, some limbs, jaws, limbs, hair." 

At first glance, it may look as if Bhagat had given birth. Actually, Mehta had removed the mutated body of Bhagat's twin brother from his stomach. Bhagat, they discovered, had one of the world's most bizarre medical conditions — fetus in fetu. It is an extremely rare abnormality that occurs when a fetus gets trapped inside its twin. The trapped fetus can survive as a parasite even past birth by forming an umbilical cordlike structure that leaches its twin's blood supply until it grows so large that it starts to harm the host, at which point doctors usually intervene. 

Yokoi: spent 28 years hidden after WWII

Shoichi Yokoi was a soldier, conscripted into the Imperial Japanese Army in 1941 and sent to Guam shortly thereafter. In 1944, as American forces reconquered the island, Yokoi went into hiding. 

On January 24, 1972, Yokoi was discovered in a remote section of Guam by two of the island's inhabitants. For 28 years he had been hiding in an underground jungle cave, fearing to come out of hiding even after finding leaflets declaring that World War II had ended. "It is with much embarrassment that I have returned alive," he said upon his return to Japan, carrying his rusted rifle at his side. 

Mehran: lives at the Airport since 1988

Mehran Karimi Nasseri, also known as Sir, Alfred Mehran (yes, including the comma), is an Iranian refugee who has been living in the departure lounge of Terminal One in Charles de Gaulle Airport since August 8, 1988. After he was later imprisoned, tortured and expelled from his country, he applied for asylum in many European countries without luck. 

When he decided to go to the United Kingdom, he claimed that he was mugged, and his shoulder bag stolen while waiting at the RER platform to go to Charles de Gaulle Airport to take a flight to Heathrow. Nasseri managed to board the plane, but when he arrived at Heathrow without the necessary documentation, Heathrow officials sent him back to Charles de Gaulle. Nasseri was unable to prove his identity or his refugee status to the French officials and so he was moved to the Zone d'attente (waiting zone), a holding area for travellers without papers. 

Nasseri was reportedly the inspiration behind the 2004 movie The Terminal. Unlike Tom Hanks' character in the movie, and since at least 1994, Nasseri does not live in the duty-free transit area but simply in the departure hall, in the circular boutiques and restaurants passage on the lowest floor. He can at least theoretically leave the terminal at any moment, although, since everyone knows him, his departure might not remain unnoticed. He does not seem to speak with anyone normally. With his cart and bags, he almost looks like a traveler, so people either do not notice him or ignore him as if he were a homeless person. 

Mitsuo: a japanese Jesus Christ

Matayoshi Mitsuo is an eccentric Japanese politician with the conviction that he is the God and Christ.According to his program, he will do the Last Judgement as the Christ but the way to do this is totally within the current political system and its legitimacy. His first step as the Savior is to be appointed the prime minister of Japan. Then he will reform Japanese society and then the United Nations should offer him the honor of its General Secretary. Then Matayoshi Jesus will reign over the whole world with two legitimate authorities, not only religious but also political. 
He has presented himself in many elections but he has not won yet. He has become well-known for his eccentric campaigns where he urges opponents to commit suicide by hara-kiri.

Bihari: most officially dead person

Lal Bihari (born 1961) is a farmer from Uttar Pradesh, India who was officially dead from 1976 to 1994. He founded Mritak Sangh or the Association of the Dead in Uttar Pradesh, India. He fought Indian government bureaucracy for 18 years to prove that he is alive.

When Lal Bihari tried to apply for a bank loan in 1976, he found out that he was officially dead. His uncle had bribed a government official to register him as dead so he would get the ownership of Bihari's land.

Bihari discovered at least 100 other people in a similar situation, being officially dead. He formed Mritak Sangh in the Azamgarh district. He and many other members were in danger of being killed by those who had appropriated their property. Nowadays the association has over 20,000 members all over India. By 2004 they had managed to declare four of their members alive. In 2004 he ran for a seat in the parliament of Lal Ganj.

Icke: our salvation from Reptilian Humanoids

David Icke, is a former professional football player, BBC television sports presenter, and British Green Party national spokesperson. Since 1990, he has been what he calls a "full-time investigator into who and what is really controlling the world.": reptilians.

He dresses only in turquoise and sustains that the world was ruled by a secret group called "The Elite": a race of reptilian humanoids, known in ancient times as the Babylonian Brotherhood, and that many prominent people are descended from them, including George W. Bush, Queen Elizabeth II, and Kris Kristofferson. He believes that descendants of the reptiles engage in child molestation and Satanism. He is the author of 15 books explaining his views. After a five-hour speech to students, he received a standing ovation at the University of Toronto in 1999.

Bawden: the self-elected Pope Michael I, from Kansas

David Allen Bawden (born 1959), is an American citizen who was elected "Pope Michael I" by a group of six Conclavist or post-Sedevacantist Catholics, arguing that the elections of the last 6 popes were invalid because they are all modernists.

Sedevacantists argue that if the College of Cardinals will not or cannot elect a valid pope, ordinary Catholics can do so, under the principle of "Epikeia" (Equity). Acting on the basis of this, David Bawden was elected Pope by six people on 1990 (including himself and his parents). He is still on the job to this day.

Nakamatsu: photographed and analyzed every meal for 34 years

Yoshiro Nakamatsu (born June 26, 1928), a.k.a. Dr. NakaMats, is the Japanese inventor claiming to hold the world record for number of inventions with over 3,000, including the floppy disk and "PyonPyon" spring shoes. He has being photographing and retrospectively analyzing every meal he has consumed during a period of 34 years (and counting). The goal of Nakamatsu is to live over 140 years old.

Lotito: mister eat-it-all

Michel Lotito (born June 15, 1950) is a French entertainer. Lotito, who was born in Grenoble, is famous as the consumer of undigestables, and is known as Monsieur Mangetout (Mister Eat-it-all). Lotito's performances are the consumption of metal, glass, rubber and so on in items such as bicycles, televisions, a Cessna 150, and smaller items which are disassembled, cut-up and swallowed. The aircraft took roughly two years to be 'eaten' from 1978 to 1980. He began eating unusual material while a child and has been performing publicly since 1966.

Lotito does not often suffer from ill-effects due to his diet, even after the consumption of materials usually considered poisonous. When performing he consumes around a kilogram of material daily, preceding it with mineral oil and drinking considerable quantities of water during the 'meal'. He apparently possesses a stomach and intestine with walls of twice the expected thickness, and his digestive acids are, allegedly, unusually powerful, allowing him to digest a certain portion of his metallic meals. 

8 Creepiest Facial Treatments

1- Buccal Facial

For those unfamiliar with this procedure (and I'm guessing there are many of you), the Buccal is an intense facial massage performed inside the mouth. That's right, inside the mouth. A trained therapist actually puts their hands inside your mouth and massages parts of your musculature where tension is stored in order to promote blood circulation and oxygenation of the skin. Purportedly, this undoubtedly hilarious-looking technique will give you a smoother, tighter complexion and help with jaw issues from teeth grinding to TMJ. Apparently, it's also incredibly painful. Popular in the U.K., Buccal facials haven't spread by word-of-mouth just yet, but give it time. Celebrities including Angelina Jolie, Scarlett Johansson, and Kate Moss have reportedly already opened their mouths and tried it. (Link)

2-Fire Facial

What if you were promised fewer wrinkles, younger-looking skin, and even slimmer thighs … if you set your body on fire? While that sounds totally dangerous, the Huǒ liáo treatment, or “fire facial," is gaining serious traction in China, where the spa service originated. The idea behind Huǒ liáo is to place a towel soaked in alcohol and a special "elixir" on the face, legs, or other parts of the body, and then light it on fire for a few seconds. This action apparently stimulates the skin and addresses dullness, sagging and wrinkles. Huh. (Link)

3- Slapping Facial

A Thai natural health practitioner claims she can turn back the clock simply by "face-slapping." The traditional technique is said to erase wrinkles, shrink pores, and tighten the skin without surgery by using slapping, kneading and massaging of the area instead. Rassameesaitarn "Tata'" Wongsirodkul, who was trained in Thailand, says she is the first face-slapping beauty therapist in the western hemisphere, and charges $350 for each 15 minute session at her San Francisco salon. (Link)

4-Vampire Facial

For years, we've been hearing about the "vampire facial," a skincare treatment that involves drawing blood from a patient and reinjecting it under the skin in order to achieve a healthy, youthful glow. The made-for-horror movie cosmetic procedure is gaining popularity in the U.S. because it's an "organic alternative to those that require chemical injections," according to Dr. Sam Lam, a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon based in Dallas, Texas.

We still can't see ourselves trying this blood-sucking beauty treatment. However, one brave soul finally took the plunge so we could all see the results: Kim Kardashian. The reality TV star, who's currently pregnant with Kanye West's baby, was caught on camera crying out in pain as the doctor drew blood from her arm and re-injected it into her face. (Link)

5-Bird Poop Facial

Yes, you read it correctly. It's a facial… using bird poop as its main ingredient. 

Nightingale excrement, collected from the Japanese island of Kyushu, is being hailed as the hottest beauty wonder product. Part of the Bird Poop Facial at New York's Shizuka Spa, and the rather more romantic-sounding Geisha Facial at London's Hari's, the unique ingredient is said to leave skin with a healthy shine as it acts as an exfoliant.

Dried under UV lights, the excrement is mixed with rice bran and water in the spa and applied as a face mask. The £135 treatment is nothing new to the A-list, however - both David and Victoria Beckham have long been fans. (Link)

6-Bee Venom Facial

This new anti-wrinkle cream is creating a big buzz in the world of cosmetics - because it's made from bee venom. Cosmetic maker Rodial has just launched a new skincare line called Bee Venom, which is clinically proven to halt the damaging effects of menopause on the face.

Kate Middleton supposedly received this facial prior to her wedding day. Although it's been hyped as a needle-free alternative to Botox, in reality the bee venom acts as a natural skin plumper, temporarily increasing blood flow and giving skin a healthy, English rose glow. (Link)

7-New York Post Page Six Facial

No, you're not left with the New York Post lying on your mug for 20 minutes. Named after the famed gossip column Page Six, which runs daily in the New York Post, this customized facial gives the spa-goer a specialized treatment that focuses on the client's particular needs.

This treament has no connection to the Post's gossip column, except for the fact that clients who have this facial might want to look like the celebrities it chronicles. This facial is specifically customized for each client. The price is $125. 

8-Solid Gold Facial

Why not add a little bling to your beauty routine? Now you can -- if you live in Florida and have enough cash to dish out for the, wait for it, 24 carat gold facial. Yep! Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach offers spa patrons the opportunity to have their entire body painted in gold. The thought is that karats can help stave off cellulite and prevent aging. (Link)
