You may soon be able to take the delicious smell of a fast food cheeseburger with you wherever you go. Burger King Japan has announced that they have bottled the aroma of the Whopper and are preparing to release a new fragrance called “Flame-Grilled” so you too can possess the distinctive musk of cheap meat. Before you get your hopes up though, keep in mind that the perfume—which comes with a free Whopper—is being released on the newly minted “Whopper Day”, April 1. The whole thing could (hopefully) just be a weird April’s Fools joke, but, sadly, it wouldn’t be the first time the fast food chain has released a signature fragrance ...
The smell of fast food wafting through the air can be beautiful torture, but how can you capture it when there are no actual greasy french fries in the general vicinity? Burger King Japan may have a solution with a new perfume that claims to smell like Whoppers.

Burger King Japan is rolling out Flame Grilled, a Whopper-scented fragrance. Folks can buy the eau de burger for 5,000 yen, which also comes with a BONUS Whopper. Apparently this is all part of a publicity stunt to celebrate Japan’s Whopper Day which just happens to fall on April 1.…WHY DO YOU DO THESE THINGS JAPAN?!?
Before the United States had a Federal currency, individual banks issued "bank notes" which holders could exchange for silver or gold coins at that bank. This bill featuring Santa Claus was issued in the 1850s by the Howard Banking Company, of Boston, Massachusetts

Santa Clause Bank Note
Issued in the 1850s by the Howard Banking Company, this five dollar bill featuring Santa Claus actually functioned as legal tender. Unlike today, when the federal government issues all of the paper currency for the United States, private banks held that responsibility from the close of the American Revolution until 1861. Now called "obsolete bank notes," the bills varied in design from bank to bank and were often quite colorful. The issuing institutions typically used stock images provided by the companies that engraved and printed the currency. A number of banks made use of Santa Claus illustrations in the 1850s—the most logical being the St. Nicholas Bank of New York City. The Santa who graces this Howard Banking Company bill is descended from Sinter Klaas, a traditional figure brought by Dutch settlers to New York in the 17th century. He went through several significant metamorphoses in America, including features added by Washington Irving in his Knickerbocker History (1809) and the 1822 poem "A Visit from St. Nicholas" ("Twas the Night before Christmas"), attributed to Clement Moore.
Scientists from France and Scotland recorded the aquatic animal "singing" at up to 99.2 decibels, the equivalent of listening to a loud orchestra play while sitting in the front row. The insect makes the sound by rubbing its penis against its abdomen in a process known as "stridulation". Researchers say the song is a courtship display performed to attract a mate.

The "water boatman" (Micronecta scholtzi) is the loudest animal on Earth relative to its body size; it's been recorded "singing" at up to 99.2 decibels, the equivalent of listening to a loud orchestra play while sitting in the front row. It makes the sound by rubbing its penis against its abdomen in a process known as "stridulation". (photo by Jerome Sueur)

The attacks, which covered an area stretching , were said to have been committed by a large beast that had formidable teeth.

I pin this only because it made me think that we should either take pictures with the kids where we know something off or creepy is in the background and they can discover it later and then we can act like we don't see it, or we can photoshop old pictures of us with them to have something like that in it.

This carcass was accidentally caught in 1977 off the coast of New Zealand by the Japanese fishing trawler Zuiyō Maru. Before tossing this creature overboard due to the stench, measurements and a few tissue/bone samples were taken. Analysis since determined it may be a decomposed basking shark

Zuiyo Maru Monster: April 25 1977 - Japanese fishing boat, Zuiyo Maru, pulled up this creature off the coast of Christchurch, New Zealand. It seemed to resemble a plesiosaur (Jurassic period); however, the creature was found to only have been dead a month. (I remember reading about this when it happened!)
The Zuiyō Maru carcass is a creature initially claimed to be a prehistoric plesiosaur that was caught by the Japanese fishing trawler Zuiyō Maru off the coast of New Zealand in 1977. Although several scientists insisted it was "not a fish, whale, or any other mammal", analysis later indicated it was most likely the carcass of a basking shark by comparing the number of sets of amino acids in the muscle tissue.

These are the consequences of the use of an alternative to napalm by Russian army at Fort Zverev, located on the shores of the Baltic Sea in northern Kronstadt. It was done as a test inside of the brick houses. The temperature was so high that it caused the bricks to melt and form such icicles.

This deserted Russian fortress, Fort Zverev, is most likely one of the creepiest places. The cause for it to have such a weird look is because it was used later by Russian army to test the power of Russian option to napalm into the brick houses. Thick brick’s vault has been burned all the way through and scene is a quite unreal. The steady stream of melted bricks runs to the basement.

NAPALM CAVERN Technically, this isn't a cavern but rather an abandoned Russian stronghold that was used to test alternatives to napalm. The tiny stalactites on the ceiling are not the result of natural phenomenon, but are actually caused by the melting of the red bricks under the intense heat of napalm and other weapons of war.

Dyatlov Pass Memorial in the Ural Mountains, near Kholat Syakhl slope (Mansi language for "Mountain of the Dead"). Commemorates the mysterious deaths of an experienced 9 person expedition of ski-hikers who were attempting to trek a set of mountains in the Urals of Russia. The group failed to return from their trip, and investigators found their tents seemingly having been torn open from within, and some barefoot in the snow with significant injuries, yet no outward sign of struggle.
