It's easy to get wrapped up in the hustle and bustle of our own lives, but then Reddit comes along and reminds us about all the other cool, weird, and interesting things that are happening in other countries or areas of the world.
From sea creatures to CT scanners to search-and-rescue equipment, these photos from around the world will absolutely fascinate you.
Every person on earth has looked like this at some point in their life, because that right there is an early human embryo.
It's a self-portrait of 7.5 billion people.
How The 8th Wonder Of The World Traveled The Globe
It's no surprise that a 7 foot 4 man needed two seats.
According to an HBO documentary that used this photo of Andre the Giant from the 1980s, he was so big that he actually couldn't fit into the bathrooms on airplanes.
Time Is Ticking
This looks like the beginning of an action movie where someone is told they have to decipher which of these wires to cut in order to save humanity.
Luckily, we're not in a James Bond movie, this is just a bundle of about 100 26 gauge wires that make up a telephone wire.
Brake For Breakfast
This seems like a fairly inconvenient place to stop to feed your children, but this momma has to make sure her babies are well fed.
So everyone else can wait a hot minute for her to finish.
Nature Stops At Nothing
What do you think could've caused two people to abandon their cars on this woodsy road?
Was there a serial killer on the loose like in an 80s horror movie or did the cars just break down?
Bumblebee, Is That You?
No this is not a transformer, and Shia Labeouf is not about to appear from behind this contraption.
This is actually just a CT Scanner without the cover on it, but it's pretty wicked, right?
These colorful chalets are situated in a holiday village just outside of Arkhangelsk, Russia.
It's easy to get caught up in our own lives and not consider the world around us, but this photo is a great reminder of lifestyles around the world.
The Real Empire State Of Mind
Health and safety regulations? We don't know her.
This vintage photo of a worker in New York City at the top of the Empire State Building shows just how lax they were about safety precautions. He appears to be reaching out to "touch" the Chrysler Building.
The Shape Of Water
Though it looks like a tiny city built out of glass, this structure is actually an ice crystal that was found in Switzerland in an area that's known for its large ice crystals and clear water.
There's a reason why no two snowflakes look exactly the same.
How The Times Have Changed...
As you can see from those guards' glasses, this picture is not a recent one.
It was taken at the 1995 murder trial of Christopher Charles Lightsey, who had to be gagged because he was being extremely obscene, reportedly. Imagine the backlash if guards tried to do this today?
Are there size requirements for driftwood?
This sequoia washed up on shore but it's hard to classify something that big as 'driftwood' considering a dog could never play fetch with this in the ocean.
Brick By Brick
Gone are the days where brick-laying took days of work and multiple people. The Netherlands decided, once again, to be ahead of their time and create this machine.
Seeing it in action does make it lose a bit of the magic though.
Tower Of Lies
The interior of the Leaning Tower of Pisa is all a lie, because there is no interior.
The Tower is actually hollow except for the stairs, which don't go fully to the top of the tower.
They Sliced These On Purpose
It turns out the inside of golf balls actually look like those jawbreakers you used to get from the convenience store as a kid.
Technically, a golf ball could still count as a jawbreaker, it probably wouldn't taste as sweet though...
He Left His Heart Back Home
The "I Viaggiatori" sculpture is one of many created by artist Bruno Catalano.
The statue represents the void that's created by leaving one's country, family, and people for another life elsewhere.
"The Planet Is Not An Ashtray"
At this point, you would think that everybody in the world knows that you shouldn't litter.
Realistically they do, but this is proof that people still choose to ignore that.
Flip Over That Lily Pad
There probably isn't a time where you would flip over a lily pad, so this is a good insight into what nature can do.
It just shows how complicated something seemingly simple can be.
If you're paying a visit to Juneau any time soon, you could have the opportunity to hike directly into Mendenhall Glacier.
The inside of the glacier looks like the heavens are opening up for you.
Plenty Of Fish
There may be plenty of fish in the sea, but none of them want to go near this shark.
Maybe this shark is just lonely and looking for friends? Or he's looking for his next meal, but that's beside the point.
The Control Room
This looks like the control room from Cabin in the Woods but it's actually the traffic control room located in Beijing.
Isn't it weird to think about how we live in a world that requires a room like this?
What It Takes To Save A Life
If you've ever wondered what exactly a fire truck holds, the Geneva Fire and Rescue Service team has the answer to your question.
All of that equipment is used to save someone's life every day.
Now Let's Get In Formation
81 crazy people all decided to jump out of a plane with nothing but a parachute to make this diamond formation.
It probably took a lot of effort to coordinate this, but they did it just for you.
Tip Of The Iceberg
The interior of a pool table looks a lot more mechanical than you expected right?
Goes to show that you don't always know what's going on beneath the surface! It's like a duck — chill on top but paddling furiously below the water.
No Filter Necessary
This may look like a photo where someone has highlighted the people in a black-and-white image, but it's sadly not.
This photo was taken in Japan after the Ontake volcanic eruption covered this temple in ash.
The world's smallest computer compared to a grain of rice proves just how far our world has advanced technologically.
It makes you wonder where will be in the next 10, 20, or 30 years.
Smoke Free Zone
We live in a world where you can no longer put up a sign that says 'No Smoking.'
It now has to be a sign that clarifies no vaping, juuling, smoking, or smoking of any kind, just to cover all the bases.
Is this the beginning of a new Harry Potter movie?
No, it's just San Francisco being enveloped in fog and turning into a scene straight out of a sci-fi movie.
Much like golf balls, pearls have a pretty cool inside, but they look more like planets rather than candy.
If you look up how pearls are actually formed, their layered-look makes a lot of sense, but it's not something you really think about.
Everything Has A Purpose
Did you know that if you don't harvest artichokes, they keep growing and blossom into beautiful flowers?
These spiky little dudes contribute to our world in their own way, we just have to let them.
This beautiful creature shown here is a bilateral gynandromorph butterfly, which is a fancy way of saying it's half male and half female.
This condition actually exists in a number of animals, but is most commonly identified in birds and butterflies.
Take The Stage
Most people won't ever have the chance to see this view of a theatre.
Only the cast and crew of a performance will have the opportunity to look out on the crowd and see something this memorable.
That's Just One Cable!
The Golden Gate Bridge features two main cables that run the span of the bridge. This half cut of a cable is as thick as a tree trunk and looks like thick, dense metal.
In reality, one cable is actually made up of thousands of other cables. Each cable is made of 61 smaller cables that are bundled from 27,572 strands of wire.
This Massive Wasp Nest Isn't As Dangerous As It Looks
Wasp nests are made out of tree bark. The wasp will eat the bark of certain trees, chew is up, break it down, and then regurgitate it in a softer form.
The new 'bark' form allows them to create papery nests.
The Mark Twain Tree Is A Reminder Of Nature's Power
Nicknamed the Mark Twain Tree, this cutaway of a stump is from a giant sequoia from the Kings Canyon park in California. The tree was cut down in 1891 and the stump was sectioned off and sent around the world simply to prove that trees that big actually exist.
The slice seen here was sent to the American Museum of Natural History in New York. On the stump, dates corresponding to the tree rings showcase how the tree began growing in 550 AD.
Does This Ruin The Magic?
It might just look like some metal tracks, but this is actually the inside of Disney's Space Mountain ride with the lights turned on.
It definitely doesn't look as scary as when you're 5-years-old.
Nothing To See Here
This is a supermarket in Israel during the Jewish holiday of Passover. In this case, there are laws against displaying leavened products to the public.
Many stores will cover up their leavened products to conform, and make it easier for their shoppers.
When Lightning Strikes
A tree burning from the inside out is not a sight you'd usually see on your daily walk through the neighborhood.
This was a result of the tree being struck by lightning during a storm.
The Ghosts Of Passengers Past
It looks like there's some sort of open grave nearby that all these ghosts have escaped from, but don't panic.
It's actually a long exposure of a crowd entertaining a subway station in Saint Petersburg during the collapse of the Soviet Union.
Edible Stained Glass
You might think at first glance that you're looking at some sort of mismatched stained glass creation or window.
What you're actually looking at is an aerial view of rice fields.
It's Hard To Look At For Too Long
The longer you look at this wall of mugs, the dizzier you're going to feel.
It's like you're looking at some glitch in the Matrix or like you've entered some sort of time warp.
Brace For Impact
The Bavarian town of Nördlingen looks a little different from up above than a regular town.
The town is built inside a 14-million-year-old crater that was formed from a meteor impact.
The Changes Of This Lake In Iraq
This is a photo of a man-made lake "Lake Milh" in Iraq outside of Baghdad. It was created to store excess water but the water level has fluctuated over many years because of weather patterns and dam practices.
In 2018, when the water was low the lake had a high salinity concentration which caused it to get that reddish tint. You can see how the color changes in 2020 as water levels increased and salinity decreased.
