That's not an ancient meteor strike, men baseball players wearing oakley prizm sunglasses 60 an optical illusion, or another one of those recent Earth farts it's Mir, the largest diamond mine in the world. The now abandoned mine is located in the otherwise unremarkable town of Mirny in the Siberian region of Russia, as any astronaut could tell you . because, yep, it's viewable from space. Thousands of years from now, people are gonna look at that hole and seriously wonder what the hell we were doing. "And this, kids, is where the moon tried to fuck the earth." Diamond deposits were discovered there in the 1950s, at which point the USSR proceeded to thaw open the frozen ground using a combination of jet engines, explosives, and presumably high volume Russian vodka. And then they just kept digging and shoveling out shiny rocks for the next 40 years. The hole is so big, in fact, that it's said that helicopters can't fly over it because they'd be sucked in by the force of the downdraft. We don't wanna know how they determined that. There's at least 30 UFOs stuck down there. So, in case you were wondering who the hell digs a giant hole next to a town, it was the other way around: the town was built around the hole during its excavation to provide a place for the workers to get drunk without risking falling into the Earth's core. The diamonds extracted were then taken to Moscow and used to construct a giant la uh, sold. They were sold. Yes. No lasers here. The laser floats above us and turns towns into craters. We've told you before about Yemen's vertigo inducing cliff side villages, whose creaky old towers were built in ancient times when mankind clearly hadn't fully grasped concepts like gravity or sanity yet. The Spanish town of Ronda is in the same boat, although it has kept with the times in every way except the essential "LET'S NOT KEEP BUILDING HOUSES RIGHT NEXT TO CLIFFS, PEOPLE" one. That's one way to prevent teenagers from sneaking out the window at night, we guess. Note that there is one rickety staircase up to the houses, a pathway without railing so the kids can learn the danger of running down stairs by natural selection. By the way, when we say "cliffs," we do mean that in the plural sense, because the town is actually located on two different (but equally steep) precipices that are connected by a 200 year old bridge: Don't worry, they do maintenance on it. They repainted the street lines just last year. Then again, considering the town has a rich history of bullfighting, maybe this has less to do with poor city planning and is more about just being suicidal dicks. Ronda is not the only European town flipping the bird to Mother Earth, though: Tropea, in the Calabria region of Southern Italy, doesn't just sit near the edge it's part of the edge. Someone always has to overdo it. The legend says that the town was founded by the demi god Hercules himself, who made Tropea his port (read: fuck place). Today, Tropea and the beach below it 1 oakley carbon blade prizm sunglasses are popular tourist destinations, which means anyone can go there and experience the magic of falling off a goddamn cliff. Those white boxes are all rows and rows of tents organized with the tender care and symmetrical proportions of a Sims neighborhood. Alternatively, this is the aftermath of the biggest domino chain reaction ever. So wait, who lives in those tents? No one. You'll only find them occupied five days a year, during Hajj, the mandatory trip to Mecca all Muslim adults with working legs have to carry out at least once in their lives. Since about 3 million people make the trip every year, and since they all need a place to crash and only a few will have local relatives to inconvenience, someone came up with the idea of putting up a tent in the district outside of Mecca. And then another, and then another . and so on, until tent city was born. "All right, kids, we're in the white one with the pointy thing on top. Don't you forget that." The concept may sound simple, but tent city is actually hailed as one of the world's most innovative cities: Saudi Arabia has modernized the whole project, replacing the old, smelly scraps of cloth with 40,000 fireproof, wind resistant, air conditioned tents with convenient access to water and electricity. These babies are the Michael Jordan driving a Cadillac of tents. Of course, they're not the Marriott either. During Hajj the people in the tents practically live on top of each other for the week the prayer ceremonies last, cramped together with complete strangers who may or may not have remembered to pack a deodorant before starting the trip (which not everyone survives).
