It’s no surprise that wood, under specific instances, can rot away. It may be an insect infestation, fire, or random accident. Everyone knows that wood is one of the most versatile materials when it comes to building structures. You can mold it as you please, and it has excellent insulator properties. The only weakness that it has is that it is combustible and is prone to rotting.
The four factors that cause wood rot are the quality of the wood itself, the level of warmth, moisture, and oxygen. The moment these four elements meet, the rotting begins, and once it hits, there is no going back.

These Are Real Snow Sculptures!
These things happen in China during a celebration they call "The Harbin International Ice and Snow Sculpture Festival." The annual winter festivities occur in Harbin, Heilongjiang, China, and usually differ in theme every time. It is considered to be the largest ice and snow festival in the world.

Different nationalities compete against each other, making it an international competition. In 2017, it had 18 million visitors, which helped the festival generate $4.4 billion in revenue. It also includes the world's most prominent ice sculptures.
It’s a Human Talent, Not Photoshop Skills
What's the initial thing you do when you see someone putting a snake through his nose? You'd probably think why he's doing that, right? Honestly, we think it's talent. Most people can barely hold a snake, much less put it across their nasal cavities; it requires effort and training… that's for sure.
India is a very diverse country as it's enormous that they experience different weathers in different parts. The country is said to house over 270 species of snakes, 60 of which are highly poisonous.

Houses in Mexico City
It's not even virtual reality; it's the real thing! What makes it seem so fake is the fact that hundreds of houses look the same, which only makes it appear that someone copied and pasted the houses near each other while playing Sims.
Believe it or not, it's part of a two-part plan of building 2.5 million houses in the first phase, followed by another 2.5 million in the second place. It's a significant project in Mexico that aims to create employment opportunities, providing business to industries that are in the housing sector, slum area reduction, better living for poor people, and the list goes on.
