National Geographic is lying to us. They say it's a 4,000-foot tall twister in Kansas.
These weird clouds are called rolling clouds and sometimes precede thunderstorms and a lot of soiled pants from anyone on the ground who's never seen one before. This particular one was photographed in Australia.
What looks like a half-done attempt to edit a utility pole out of a landscape is in fact the aftermath of a brushfire in Russia. How exactly they managed to stop the fire right before it burnt out the lines, we're not sure, but we're certainly glad it didn't shut down the market for international brides.
This apparent disaster-waiting-to-happen is on the Island of St. Maarten. The airport has a particularly short runway that ends just 40 feet from beach, leaving large planes just barely enough room to land. So they have to come in low, directly over the beach, making it a prime destination for an afternoon of quiet, relaxing sunbathing. -- THIS IS TOTALLY REAL!!! Not photoshopped!! CRAZY!!
This mile-high tennis match looks like some cheesy special effect from a Nike commercial. But no, it's just Dubai, whose entire economy seems to be based on building enormous things that exist only for the purpose of not making any goddamn sense. In that spirit they hosted this tennis match between Andre Agassi and Roger Federer on a helipad located on top of the Burj Al Arab skyscraper.
