Mistaken Identity In 1903, a prisoner named Will West arrived at Leavenworth. The record clerk took the photographs above and, thinking he remembered West, asked whether he had been there before. West said no. The clerk took some measurements, went to the file, and produced this record, bearing the name William West: Amazed, the prisoner said, “That’s my picture, but I don’t know where you got it, for I know I have never been here before.”
10 Most Fascinating Natural Phenomena A natural phenomenon is a non-artificial event in the physical sense, and therefore not produced by humans, although it may affect humans.

Most Extreme Landscapes on Earth Our globe is home to some truly breathtaking and extraordinary sights.

Beatles Conspiracy: Did They Cover Up Paul's 1966 Death? Photo Gallery - Paul McCartney or an Imposter? - Conspiracies on truTV Paul McCartney or an Imposter?

It's all part of an elaborate conspiracy theory that some music buffs have kept alive since Paul's alleged accidental death in 1966.
The Star Wars universe has millions of fans throughout the world, and some of them really invest a lot of time and money into their passion for the franchise. Case in point, a group of German Star Wars enthusiasts who created an almost life-size model of the iconic Tie Fighter spacecraft out of wood, steel and plastic. It took an army of hobbyists two years to complete, but the 1:2 scale Tie Fighter recently unveiled in Eichenzell, Germany, is a true DIY masterpiece. 20 Star Wars fans of different professions, from financial brokers to policemen and architects, put their blood and tears into this 5.30 m wide, 4.80 m long, 4.30 m high and 1.4 tons heavy model of the Galactic Empire’s starfighter. They worked in 12-meter-wide parking garage and spent an estimated €14,000 ($18,500) on necessary materials. The steel and aluminum frame alone cost €6,000 ($8,000), the wood was mostly provided for free, and the giant plastic ball that makes up the cockpit cost €1,900 ($2,500). Pics

But take note! Breaking into these parks is not for the faint of heart (or slow of step). 8 Abandoned Theme Parks Abroad “Open” for Exploration
