It's safe to say that the world is full of oddities: from shrunken human heads to pink sand beaches, and scary underwater animals that have recently been discovered. We've pretty much seen it all, haven't we? Wrong! Perhaps you've been around the world, and seen pretty rare things here and there, but we're pretty sure you haven't seen at least half of these incredibly amazing things that surround us.
#1. Sure, go ahead and drink your fifth cup of coffee of the day. But first, take a look at this pic.
This beautiful crystalline beauty is what caffeine looks like after it's been purified and crystallized by sublimation. We're not really sure how the process works, but that surely doesn't look appetizing enough to swallow in the morning!
#2. No need to rub your glasses and do a major cleanup. You're not seeing blurry.
The Rising Sun Redbud plant is a total collector's item, if you're into plants. It typically grows in North America, and has beautiful yellow leaves that turn orange and red as they mature. But fair warning: the very-confusing flowers can make anyone question if they've had a few to drink!
#3. No, that's not a toy egg, or a kinder surprise toy. It's the aftermath of a truly freaky occurrence.
Occasionally, this person's chickens will lay a shell-less egg that's mostly covered by a super soft membrane sack. This probably made laying this egg a total walk in the park for the chicken!
#4. This is what normal plasma looks like on a person with a healthy weight, versus plasma from an obese person.
Apparently, having a lot of junk in the trunk can actually alter the composition of plasma and tissue fatty acids in the blood. The difference between these tubes is pretty abysmal!
#5. These beautiful shades of sand don't come from different places around the world.
Oh no! These exotic shades of sand were all collected in the Sahara desert. But for some reason, we can't help but think it kind of looks like a new bronzer you could find at Sephora!
