While drilling in 1971, Soviet geologists tapped into a cavern filled with natural gas.The ground beneath the drilling rig collapsed, leaving a large hole with a diameter of 70 meters (230 ft). To avoid poisonous gas discharge, it was decided the best solution was burn it off. Geologists had hoped the fire would use all the fuel in a matter of days, but the gas is still burning today. Locals have dubbed the cavern “The Door to Hell”.

The Door To Hell” may sound like a science fiction-horror movie, but it’s not. It is a real place in Turkmenistan.

Hank Green of SciShow explains that in the 1970′s, Soviet scientists found an amazing depot of natural gas, but while attempting to retrieve it accidentally caused the ground to collapse.

The scientists realized it would be better to set the now free methane on fire than let the dangerous, combustible gas vent into the environment.

They thought the gas would be burn up in a few weeks, but 42 years later the crater is still burning.

A cloud was my mother, the wind is my father, my son is the cool stream, and my daughter is the fruit of the land. A rainbow is my bed, the earth my final resting place, and I’m the torment of man.

Rubber Chicken Life just gets better as you get older doesn’t it?

I was in a Starbucks Coffee recently when my stomach started rumbling and I realized that I desperately needed to fart.

The place was packed but the music was really loud so to get relief and reduce embarrassment I timed my farts to the beat of the music.

After a couple of songs I started to feel much better.

I finished my coffee and noticed that everyone was staring at me.
I suddenly remembered that I was listening to the music on my I-pod.

This is what happens when old people start using technology.

The Royal Netherlands Army testing the brakes on one of its Leopard tanks.

Enjoy!


Leopard Tank Brake Test

How do you test the brakes of your Leopard tank? If you’re mad like the Dutch, you nearly run over 22 people.

I was’t particularly worried about the lives of these 22 be-suited demo people, but it’s still an amazingly dramatic way to show off your machine’s capabilities.
