Whoever this kid is, he seems to be enjoying himself. His face has, “look what I can do mom!” written all over it. His sister is definitely getting a kick out of her brother’s vulnerability. Though mom looks a bit concerned, she knows that it will end well, and it does. Unfortunately, he didn’t get any cool battle scars out of it.
Luckily, he does have this picture to prove that him flipping with his bike into a lake where his mother and sister are rowing a little boat actually happened. Now that’s one picture to give you major cool points.
Ship Nearly Loses Its Cargo
This cargo ship was on the verge of toppling over, yet, the rescue boat sailors s were not very worried. Perhaps, the ship was in more control than perceived. However, the good news is that the ship did not flip over, and no one was injured. The scene made for some awesome pictures. Incredibly, only 4 of those
If you’re wondering why the ship's cargo is stacked so unsafely, you’re not alone. Especially for such a long journey?! It’s a miracle only 4 of them hit the waters.
Jared Michael is counted as one of the lucky ones in this compilation. The train conductor saw Jared ahead of time. He was, in fact, able to stick his foot out of the running train and kick Jared away from the train tracks. Such moments are when you learn valuable life lessons.
The train in the photo moves next to the routes of Peru Rail, which travel from Cusco (and other small destinations) to Machu Picchu. Luckily for the survivor, the train moves at an extremely low pace and that is the reason the train conductor was able to save the guy.
On Their Way to Space
In 1986, the NASA Space Vehicle satellite Challenger burst open only 73 seconds post being launched. All of the seven squad members died. In this photo, they are seen, elatedly, getting ready to board the vehicle only a few hours before.
The whole event happened on live TV, with millions of people watching the tragic launch. In addition, in an effort to pull in positive media coverage, there were school students who were invited by NASA to watch the launch with their teachers. This is one tragedy that lives on in the collective memory of everyone old enough to have been alive when it happened.
This picture poses quite a few questions, like why would they place a mirror in such an awkward place? Were the bartender and other staff members aware of how it looked? Or maybe it's for amusement? Actually, I have a lot of questions about this photo.
Regardless of the weird leg-upper body proportions, the bartender is still pretty cute.
