25 Years ago Chernobyl was headline news. On April 26th 1986 at 1:23 A.M. reactor number four at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, near the town of Pripyat, ruptured a vessel during several extreme power spikes. Several explosions followed and these caused the graphite moderator components of the reactor to be exposed to air, setting them on fire. The fire sent a plume of radioactive fallout into the atmosphere. It drifted over large parts of the Sovjet Union and Western Europe. 50 People died as a direct result of the disaster and it is thought up to 4000 people have died as a result of being exposed to the radioactive materials which entered the atmosphere. Over 350.000 were evacuated from contaminated areas around Russia, Ukraine and Belarus.
A ghost town is an abandoned village , town or city , usually one which contains substantial visible remains. A town often becomes a ghost town because the economic activity that supported it has failed, or due to natural or human-caused disasters such as floods, government actions, uncontrolled lawlessness, war, or nuclear disasters. The term is sometimes used to refer to cities, towns, and neighbourhoods which are still populated, but significantly less so than in years past; for example those affected by high levels of unemployment and dereliction. [ 1 ] Some ghost towns, especially those that preserve period-specific architecture, have become tourist attractions. Some examples are Bannack, Montana ; Calico, California ; and Oatman, Arizona in the United States; Barkerville in Canada; Elizabeth Bay and Kolmanskop in Namibia; and Pripyat in Ukraine.
People generally place the natural world in high esteem. Property values are high near parks. “Getting back to nature” is considered a good thing. Even our screensavers and desktop backgrounds show vistas of rolling hills, sunshine or the aurora borealis. But we usually gloss over the fact that while Mother Nature is normally a very sweet lady, she can sometimes go off the deep and blow your mind … or ruin your shit, as evidenced by this nonet of natural madness.

Thing in a Jar 7 inches by 4 inches, mason jar Pictured above is the Thing in a Jar that's usually sitting in my office at work. The coolest thing about the Thing is that everyone responds to seeing it by asking questions. Where did I find it? Is it an internal organ?

Before I start on the list, I feel that I should advise that a couple of the items here are quite horrific and I would recommend that those who are weak of heart or who have a nervous disposition avoid them. The items I am referring to are marked in the text. The items are not in any particular order as it is very hard to rate the historical importance versus the just plain weird value. NOTE: If you click the “download the MP3″ link, it should (for most modern browsers) open in your browser and stream. 1. Alessandro Moreschi The only recorded true castrato Wikipedia
The Principality of Sealand is an unrecognised entity, located on HM Fort Roughs , a former Second World War Maunsell Sea Fort in the North Sea 13 kilometres (7 nmi) off the coast of Suffolk , England , United Kingdom . [ 6 ] [ 8 ] Since 1967 the facility has been occupied by family and associates of Paddy Roy Bates , who claim that it is an independent sovereign state. [ 6 ] Bates seized it from a group of pirate radio broadcasters in 1967 with the intention of setting up his own station at the site. [ 9 ] He established Sealand as a nation in 1975 with the writing of a constitution and establishment of other national symbols. [ 6 ] Bates moved to mainland Essex when he became elderly, naming his son Michael regent. Bates died in 2012 at the age of 91. [ 10 ] While it has been described as the world's smallest nation, [ 11 ] or a micronation , [ 12 ] Sealand is not currently officially recognised by any established sovereign state .
