The English philosopher Francis Bacon once said, “Who questions much, shall learn much, and retain much.” Naturally, humans are inquisitive beings, and asking questions is ingrained within us. Truly, the questions of the world are endless. 

For those curious folks who reside on this planet, we have some answers to your pressing questions about “what if” this happens. We’re enlightening your soul and spirit with some bizarre things that people were curious about and decided to document. 

The Watermelon Whose Growth Won’t Be Obstructed

When we were kids, we learned that living things adapt to their environment and all the changes that surround them. Plants remarkably grow around anything that’s in their way, and the result is sometimes seeing plants with cool shapes!

Sunlight, water, and nutrients are essential for the growth and survival of plants. This example shows the watermelon that grew around the obstruction, which, in this case, was a fence. It was altered in two parts rather than the full roundness of its shape. 

Taking A Photo While Getting A Vibrating Phone Call

Smartphones are an essential part of our daily lives, and for taking photos. In fact, you don’t even need to purchase an actual camera because the cameras on smartphones are pretty high quality. What happens if you’re taking a photo and your phone starts to vibrate from an incoming call?

Well, this is what happens! The home across the way turns out to be all wavy and appears a bit distorted if you pay careful attention to the details. Luckily, the result is actually really cool. 

This Person Wanted To Know What Heating A Marker Would Look Like

Whoever the person was that took this photo must have been extremely bored. The warning label on the Sharpie clearly said to not expose the marker to any heat…whoops! Obviously, this was an intentional act of both boredom and curiosity.

What’s that black stuff coming out of the marker? It looks like ink steam and is pretty neat, actually. Just don’t accidentally put your face by that steam or the result could be very bad and hard to get off! 

The Soda Can Is About To Pop

It’s a common component in physics that heat causes things to expand because the atoms or molecules would grow apart. But, in this photo, the air molecules are trapped in the soda can.

This clearly happened during the summer when air molecules collect heat and then expand in the can. Because the molecules get trapped, that’s why the can is pushed upwards (hence, the source of the peculiar bump on the lid). While this nifty science experiment can be done by anybody either at home or in their car, be careful just in case there’s an explosion!

Popcorn On A Cob…Looks Like What?!

People typically eat popcorn on its own, out of a bag, or in a bowl. This particular person, however, decided to make popcorn right on the cob itself. Wow, that’s something we’ve certainly never heard about or thought of doing before!

Popcorn is usually bought in the store so not everybody has to make it at home. But, for those that want to get crafty and try this experiment at home, you certainly can. Be aware, however, of flying popcorn that may come off of the cob.

Waterbed On The Basketball Court

There’s a certain natural phenomenon called the grass waterbed that many people probably aren’t aware exists. It’s when water gets trapped in pockets beneath the ground’s surface. However, when this happens to your school’s basketball court, this is far from natural.

Clearly, this basketball game would be called off considering the state of the court. Putting any pressure over that hard-floored waterbed would definitely cause a messy situation! The reparations for the damage would be disastrous, costly, and dangerous if a pipe burst.

Crystals Form In Untouched Play-Doh

Crystals form when Play-Dohs is left untouched for a long period of time because of this scientific explanation. In fact, when Play-Doh is produced, large amounts of table salt are added to prevent them from getting moldy.

Source: onedio

The salt serves as a preservative. If you were an adventurous kid who was curious about tasting Play-Doh, it would actually be quite salty. As the Play-Doh hardens, the salt solidifies and forms these tiny, pretty-looking crystals. They actually somewhat resemble small purple flowers, too!

You’ve Probably Never Seen An Insect This Way Before

We’re very sure that the insect in this photo is not part of the fabric design. This insect was obviously feeling quite adventurous and got himself trapped in the printer. While the printer printed out the design, the insect’s shape also got imprinted, too.

This tiny insect likely didn’t really ruin the entire product, but it’s rather funny. Make sure you show your guests the result because it will guarantee some laughs! Yes, the insect will always be remembered. Gone, but not forgotten.

Freeze Drying Your Gummy Worms

If you are naturally a patient person, then you will be delighted to see the result after waiting for your gummy worms to freeze dry. And, yes, this is another thing to be performed in the comfort of your own home. For those who have no interest in doing this on their own, we will share the details with you.

After the gummy worms are placed in the freezer, they end up expanding, hardening, and being chewier than before. If you are feeling compelled to gobble down an entire pack of freeze-dried gummy worms, you will need to put that patience to good use.

The Aftermath Of Putting A Baby Spoon In The Dishwasher

The contents that comprise baby spoons are vast, and the possibilities could seem limitless. However, they are not made of something that protects them very well from heat. Baby spoons have to be made of soft materials since baby teeth are fragile and soft.

So, if you decided to put a baby spoon (whether it’s on accident or intentional), into the dishwasher, it would probably melt. Glancing at the melted spoon gives us a weird feeling and we feel bad for the son in the scenario.

This Frozen Tire Resembles A Spiky-Looking Wheel

You would be excited about this phenomenon, especially if you hail from a country that doesn’t get a true winter. The water on the wheel froze as it was spinning and the water flung outwards, causing these mesmerizing spikes!

The hard task of removing these icicle spikes would need to be prioritized by the bus driver as soon as possible. They have places to be, and things to do, and they simply couldn’t afford to have their tires destroyed by these dangerous icy spikes.

Putting A Flashlight In A Kaleidoscope Produces Colorful Results

Kaleidoscopes were a fun and exciting toy to use as kids when we were growing up. These toys use mirrors to create remarkable and unbelievable images. What if you placed a flashlight into the kaleidoscope?

Advertisement

Source: onedio

Well, the result is cool and unique! The flashlight’s beam is reflected into the kaleidoscope’s mirrors which form a vast array of colors that are intriguing to stare at. Kids, you can try this at home. Also, kaleidoscopes aren’t outrageously pricey so you can ask your parents to buy one.

What Happens If Antibiotics Are Left Outside?

After we visit the doctor, and, if the case permits, they need to prescribe antibiotics that taste syrupy. We would likely be reminded to shake it all up very well before taking. Also, it needs to be kept in the fridge so it doesn’t go bad – the antibiotics are made out of good bacteria.

Advertisement

Source: onedio

So, this person wanted to know what would happen if they left the bottle outside where it’s extremely hot? The result is pretty gross and made our stomachs queasy. How is this medication that we’re supposed to ingest? We’re supposed to be healed not revolted!

Fire And Plastic Do Not Mix…Obviously

Burning charcoal should only be done when you’re having a bonfire, barbeque, campfire, or an indoor furnace fire. And, it seems to be common knowledge to leave them alone for a decent period of time after the fire dies out, and, before disposing, let it cool. 

Advertisement

Source: onedio

This “intelligent” human being made the decision to dump hot charcoals in a plastic trashcan. Didn’t they know that heat would melt the plastic? No, we guess not! But maybe they were just curious.

This Vinyl Record’s Owner Was In For A Surprise

It should be common sense that objects expand when heat is applied to them. However, what would happen if the object was flat and doesn’t have much room for expansion? The sides would expand in a wavy design, and, thus, your flat object serves no purpose anymore. 

Advertisement

Source: onedio

This idea is more viable when applied to a vinyl record. The absent-minded person who took the photo left his record in the car and was in for a big surprise! This is a PSA to not leave objects in your car during the summer because your car turns into a piping-hot furnace.

When Maple Syrup Crystallizes

There’s nothing better on a Saturday morning than warm, yummy pancakes with some sweet maple syrup drizzled over them. But, what happens if you neglect your maple syrup in the cupboard for an unusually long time? 

Advertisement

Source: onedio

Well, the syrup is made out of various saturated sugars which causes crystallization. This turns the syrup into sugar crystals…literally! It begs the question: if we can ingest medicines in tablet form instead of syrup, perhaps we can do the same with maple syrup crystals. We feel this is a valid thing to give some thought to!

What Your Sleeve Looks Like After Major Wind Damage

We doubt that anybody has tried this experiment before, but it happened to this person! It’s incredible how much damage the wind can do to one person’s sleeve. So, how can our miraculous Earth tear the sleeves of this person’s sweater apart? Always carry a windbreaker with you just in case the weather gets really crazy!

The windbreaker is more than a miracle jacket! It shelters your clothes from being damaged and is supposed to help you “break” the wind.

When Your Driver’s License Gets Stuck In Your Wallet For Too Long

You may want to put your name on something to identify that a specific special item is yours. Or, what about just putting your face on the item itself? Seriously, the joke’s on you if you don’t think that your driver’s license will take on a life of its own inside the wallet’s plastic sheet.

Advertisement

Source: onedio

From time to time, maybe consider taking out your license so that your face doesn’t become imprinted in your wallet. The result is very spooky and it’s as if the wallet is haunted! Although, it is your wallet and it’s up to you what’s done with it.

When Lightning Strikes At A Golf Course

Lightning has a penchant for striking the tallest thing in any area. A golf course is fairly flat, except for the golf flag itself, which is likely where the lightning will want to strike. Clearly, Zeus wasn’t satisfied with his golf score.

Source: onedio

Zeus’s lightning bolt left traces of its trajectory on the course, aside from the missing flag and the sad-looking flagpole. You can also see all the charred marks on the field from Zeus’s angry reign. This is a warning that you should take them out the next time you want to play a golf game while a thunderstorm is raging!

These Light Beams Resemble Something Extraterrestrial

For all of your physics lovers out there, this is probably something that would pique your interest. Because light travels in a straight line, more than one light source behind a door would cause multiple rays of light to enter the dark room.

Perhaps you’ve done cool experiments like this in physics class, so you may already know how this works! You should definitely try this at home and then you can share your close alien encounter with your friends.

When More Than One Type Of Soap Is Combined Together

Different ingredients and levels of solubility make up all the kinds of soaps that exist out there. So, if you mixed these together, the result would be an immiscible soapy blend – which consists of different densities.

Since both soaps consist of different densities and solubility, the final result is a mix of random patterns. It kind of looks like mini mushrooms or small jellyfish! But, the gases could be toxic so be careful to not inhale the mixture.

When A Spoon Lasts Longer Than Some People

It’s no surprise that people have their favorite utensils in the kitchen and ones that they have to use during meals. That being said, it’s not an everyday occurrence to see the same spoon that’s been used every day for this person’s whole life. For the past five decades, they’ve used the exact same spoon.  

Advertisement

Source: Reddit

For a 50-year-old spoon, it’s not in the worst of shape. What happens if the person used that same spoon for the next 50 years? Well, they probably wouldn’t even last – if anything, the spoon would outlive them!

This Lemon And Lime Water Looks Strange

Some lavish hotel lobbies and buffet restaurants may have water dispensers full of spa water. This kind of water usually consists of lemon, lime, and sometimes mint and apples. The extra-observational person who took this photo noticed something rather interesting. 

Advertisement

Source: Reddit

Even though both the lemon and lime are a part of the citrus family, they seemingly have differences in their densities. The lemon floats on the water, yet the lime sinks to the bottom. The reason for this is probably because the lime is denser than water and the lemon is less dense compared to water.

A Storm Tore The Entire Road Apart

This photo is a testament to the fact that nature is often stronger than anything else in the world. While this wouldn’t happen in every country, the particular infrastructure of this road was clearly not very well thought out.

Mother Nature will gladly rip apart any of our infrastructures whenever and wherever she pleases. On the other hand, this is a prime example of how poorly our roads are constructed and that even a storm can tear them apart easily.

When A Stone Surface Erodes

It’s not news that the constant flow of water on a particularly rough surface causes it to erode into a smooth surface. That’s just basic geography, folks! As shown in the photo, the rough stone surface was eroded to create a smooth surface on the sides.

The whole surface, in due time, would turn smooth, but that would be in a matter of years or decades. Science definitely makes everything around us much more interesting and appealing.

Allow Nature To Grow On Its Own

A lot of us truly love plants and have a deep investment in them. Although, some people may not even know that quite a few home plants still require trimming on a regular basis.

But, not all plants need trimming to appear beautiful. In this photo, Mother Nature is doing what she does best and she doesn’t need any human assistance! It’s true that the plant growing out of the big pot is even prettier without trimming.

When Grass Grows Out Of A Grass Seed Bag

When you buy seeds, the intention is for plants to grow out of them. So, what happens if the plant grows even before you plant them into the dirt? We admit that would be very funny, but it would definitely save you some time from waiting for it to sprout.

At least that person knows the seeds they got worked. Actually, they are so good that they don’t even require soil for their growth. This is the perfect time to tell your friends and family about this brand of seeds.

Melted Asphalt Can Appear To Be Pretty Artistic

Often, lightning is observed from afar during rainy nights. Most people do not know that the temperature of lightning is six times hotter than the sun’s surface. This is much more than the temperature of asphalt which can be 180 degrees Celsius at the most.

When asphalt is struck by lightning, it melts into extremely bizarre and unimaginable shapes. This particular piece of asphalt almost appears to be some sort of decoration that you could put in your living room. Needless to say, your guests would be pretty amazed!

When Lays Get All Shriveled Up

In the grocery store, there’s that special aisle where all the chips are stored. The chips either come in bulk or separate bags or are completely filled to the brim before they’re sealed. And, what happens if you put a chip bag into the microwave? Surely, you haven’t tried that.

Well, this certain person actually did it. Much to their surprise, instead of the expected explosion, the bag turned into a shriveled-up chip. Indeed, the result is rather dramatic!

Years Of Wear And Tear

Shovels, much like erasers, work until there’s nothing quite left. With shovels, the metal fades as time goes on and the amount of use we get out of it. This wear and tear is a natural indicator of how much work you have put into your garden.

Many of us probably don’t have our own gardens or yards to do gardening work (there are such things called apartments, you know). Shovels, interestingly enough, shrink in size depending on how much they’re being used!

Hairless Coconut, Anyone?

We have to wonder what process this person went through to remove all the hair from the coconut. It’s so shiny underneath! Maybe they used an electric shaver – it’s a mystery.

For those who love coconuts and coconut juice, you probably have never given one thought to what it looks like without the hair. If you drilled the hairless coconut with a few holes it would almost resemble a bowling ball and may even confuse the bowling alley staff.

Hot And Cold…Freezing Cold

We’ve wondered about lots of strange things. But, have you ever wondered what would happen if you dipped your head in a pool of hot water and then lifted it into the freezing, glacial air? Now you don’t have to – this picture proves it! The water on your hair freezes and forms icicles…hair icicles.

Actually, this phenomenon is fairly common in far northern countries such as Canada and Iceland. Even more so when there are natural hot springs and bitingly chilly winter air. Would you rather stay inside or brave the weather with a cool experiment?

Remember To Change Your Filters, Folks

If you live in a particular area that is prone to fires breaking out, there will be ashes, amongst other nanoscopic particles in the air. Needless to say, it’s probably best that you try to not inhale this too much. People install air filters for their homes if they live in a fire-prone location.

The stark difference between these two filters is a bit shocking. The used filter is extremely dirty and the unused one is clean as can be, so there’s a noticeable contrast. Don’t forget to change out your filters!

Don’t Try This At Home, Kids

Not all of us are masters in the kitchen. Let’s face it – most of us are too lazy to cook so we just order in. But, almost every modern home has a stove in its kitchen. Have you ever wondered what would happen if you started a fire without a stove? Well…the fire rises upwards just as a candle does.

Light My Fire

The crowd in this photo is actually on fire. Literally! It’s a mystery how the event organizers managed to pull this stunt off so effectively, but it does look pretty fun. With all the sparks and smoke, we hope that there would be some safety precautions put in place.

Because of all the smoke, this is probably not a sporting event. How would the athletes even be able to see? It looks cool, yet very dangerous. Hopefully, nobody was put at risk!

The Wonders Of Shutter Speed

Did this photo make you look twice? It did for us! On the left, the child has his eyes closed, but on the right, his eyes are open in reflection. What is this sorcery you must ask? This occurs due to the speed of the shutter when the photo was snapped, and the speed that the light was traveling to achieve such an effect.

It’s always cool to see science at work! This is especially true since we can’t actually see ourselves blink when we’re not looking in a mirror at our own reflection.

Imagine If A Tree Had Brains

We are all familiar with a skull’s shape, but many of us have likely never seen a skull with something inside of it. Your brain should be in there, of course. And if it’s not, then something’s up.

With this empty skull, the tree roots managed to occupy the empty space. It’s amazing what person actually discovers these types of things and they are probably just very lucky. However, we don’t want to be involved in the skull-digging process. Thanks!

Your Oil Must Be Changed

Changing the oil in our cars is essential to have it run properly. The oil assists in getting rid of the engine’s sludge, so we should have it changed everytime it needs to be. Additionally, the oil helps regulate the engine’s temperature and functions as a lubricant.

This is an important reminder to change your oil or your car engine will look like the one in the picture. You don’t want this person’s oil residue disaster to be your very own if you don’t take the necessary precautions in preventing it!

An Actual Fork In The Road

If you were to put something in the middle of a road and let it get run over many times, what would happen? Well, it would get flattened to a pulp. Take this fork, for instance – it was laying on a road and this was its impending fate.

Forks are not flat, as we are well aware. They are curved at the base and straight at the top, and were designed this way so we could eat without a hassle. We’ve never seen a flat fork like this sad one, so this is fairly intriguing.

Spray Tan Disaster

The results of this photo should be a warning that if you get a spray tan and cry, this is what will happen! If you are a woman with very fair skin and you want a tan, try to get a temporary tan spray. It will easily wash off after you’ve used it for a day.

Unfortunately, the spray tan for this person was ruined after she cried. The rain of tears did fall for her and the result wasn’t pretty. Maybe give some more thought to getting a spray tan next time.

Too Much Fun In The Sun

Have you ever thought about what would happen if you used the sun to bleach your clothes? It’s actually possible because this is what happened when the sun’s strong ultraviolet rays bleached this person’s black shirt.

While any typical person would just go to the store to buy bleach, using the sun is another interesting method. However, letting the sun do its work takes some time, so you must be patient! After all, patience is a virtue.

Grow Vegetables At Your Own Risk

The vegetables we all consume are plants and their sole purpose is to grow and reproduce. But, when your vegetables start to grow sprouts or something else that looks strange, it’s best to not consume them.

After being left on a table for a long period of time, this artichoke sprouted a beautiful purple flower. When the owner came back, we imagine that they must have been quite surprised! This is something you shouldn’t eat, but put it in a vase with some water and use it as a table centerpiece.

A Strangely Shaped Piece Of Hair

It’s common that when we leave something in a particular place for too long, it takes the shape of its immediate surroundings. In this specific case, the strand of hair got stuck in a zipper and took the form of the zipper’s zigzag shape.

Yes, it’s just a simple strand of hair but we’ve never seen anything like this before! You could try this experiment at home, even though it might be an annoyance to get a hair strand purposefully stuck in a zipper.

An Otherworldly Universe Of Books

Imagine if you saw a library that looked like something out of Inception. Well, today is your lucky day! We wish all libraries resembled this one and would make going to a library much more fun.

Who would have thought that this cool image is the result of empty library shelves? If we had a library card, we would be making daily runs to the library and getting in some solid reading time. Talk about an out-of-this-world experience!

When Tourists Leave Bamboo Alone

During the height of COVID-19, everybody was forced to quarantine inside. Many things changed in the outside world with little to no human interference, like this particular example of bamboo that goes untouched. What if humans leave plants alone and allow them to thrive on their own?

In this photo, we see many bamboo stalks with inscriptions and other words that tourists carved into them. But, when nobody interferes and lets nature do its thing, a beautiful, bright, and exquisite new bamboo stalk grows!

Leaving An Apple And A Banana In A Locker For Six Months

Here we have another example during quarantine of how things change when they are neglected. What if you leave fruit in your locker for months on end? Well, we have the answer.

They get all shriveled and gross looking as this banana and apple did! The apple looks almost like an extra-shriveled walnut and the banana doesn’t look like anything from this planet. It could also be a cool science experiment if that’s your thing. Yeah, quarantine was an interesting time for all of us.

Throwing Water On An Oil Fire

Surely, this photo is also something you could have experimented with during lockdown, but we would have highly advised against it. How dangerous and scary! Perhaps somebody was bored and thought, “Hey, why don’t I just try throwing some water on this fire and see what happens?”

Well, if they had half a brain, they’d know that water would make it even bigger. The result looks like something straight out of a fiery underworld – it’s a place you wouldn’t want to be.

A Bear Breaks Into Your Car

Upon first glance, it seems as if a tornado or some other natural disaster ripped this car to pieces. What if…we told you this was all the doing of a mischievous bear?

This bear was either seeking vengeance or extremely hungry (probably a mixture of both). All of the wiring, upholstery, and pretty much everything else was torn out of their places. We’re unsure as to whether the ravenous bear found what he was seeking, but he sure made a big ol’ mess in the process.

Putting Dish Soap In A Fountain

Again, this is another instance where we can’t help but wonder what was going through the person’s head. It seems that it posed quite a hazard, especially for the one truck that probably went to investigate the situation.

The inner kid within us wants to go and play in that world of soapy fun. We also couldn’t imagine what the people driving by were thinking when they saw a giant soapy fountain leaking out onto the grass. Surely, they were perplexed.

Lightning Strikes Dornach Beach In Scotland

Lighting is a fascinating natural phenomenon that is visually striking and also very dangerous. It’s good that nobody else was in the immediate vicinity of this Scottish beach when lightning struck its sand.

Your Neighbor Uses The Longest Drill Possible

We’ve all probably experienced annoying, difficult, and noisy neighbors. This person’s downstairs neighbor maybe had no idea that their drill would be so long and it would interrupt their upstairs neighbor’s space. Or, perhaps they didn’t care!

Imagine if you’re going about your business and all of a sudden you see a massive drill come up from underneath the floor. What would your reaction be? We would be surprised and a bit shocked, but also irritated. That truly is the longest drill we’ve ever seen in our lives.

Taking A Photo In The Carwash

Carwashes are neat places. You can stay in your car while you get it washed and feel like you’re on an awesome ride at the same time. We wish there were more photos out there of what happens when you go through a carwash, so we’re glad this person caught one.

Spinning A Basketball For Two Weeks

All sports equipment gets worn down after a long time of being used extensively. We love that shiny new look of a soccer ball, basketball, or volleyball that is freshly purchased from the store. But, what would, for instance, a basketball look like after spinning for two whole weeks?

Trying To Make An Eggshell Permeable

This “What if” is one of those examples that intrigue and baffles us. Who would have ever thought to do something like this? It’s actually possible if you wanted to try it out yourself.

What goes into making an eggshell permeable? Soak it in vinegar for 24 hours, another 24 hours in corn syrup, and, lastly, 24 hours in distilled water. That’s what 72 hours of soaking does to a previously normal egg! We kind of want to try this experiment.

Leaving A Glass Of Red Wine Outside Overnight

We all love some red wine once in a while, especially after a long day of work to unwind. Sitting outside with our glass of wine and looking up at the stars sounds really relaxing. But, then you fall asleep pretty quickly. You awaken out of your slumbered stupor and stumble inside to get into your warm bed.

After a good night’s sleep, you go outside to retrieve the wine glass that you actually didn’t even finish! You find that a host of little gnats have tragically fallen inside the glass.

Forgetting The Avocado Pit

Avocados are really delicious and full of nutrients. They’re best put on sandwiches or even plain toast. The avocado pit seems a mysterious yet integral part of the fruit. While we all know the green part is good for your health and goes on many things, what about the pit?

This person decided to put the pit inside a shot glass and forget about it for a bit. It seemingly took on a life of its own and even sprouted roots!

Putting Blue Food Coloring In A White Rose’s Water

Roses are already vibrant and gorgeous flowers on their own, but it’s interesting to see what would happen if some food coloring was added to the water. We’ve seen artificially dyed flowers at the grocery store before, although this person did it all by themselves.

Food coloring is a versatile item that can be used for lots of things. The result that this rose experienced after sucking up blue food coloring is quite beautiful and mesmerizing. We just want to stare at it for a long time.

Leaving Out Peppermint Schnapps

If you’ve ever tried Peppermint Schnapps, you’d know that it’s a very tangy and sweet liqueur. It’s a versatile spirit that can be used to mix with other flavors and alcohol. The person who tried this experiment ended up with an incredible result.
