It's safe to say that the world is full of oddities: from shrunken human heads to pink sand beaches, and scary underwater animals that have recently been discovered. We've pretty much seen it all, haven't we? Wrong! Perhaps you've been around the world, and seen pretty rare things here and there, but we're pretty sure you haven't seen at least half of these incredibly amazing things that surround us.

#1. Sure, go ahead and drink your fifth cup of coffee of the day. But first, take a look at this pic.

This beautiful crystalline beauty is what caffeine looks like after it's been purified and crystallized by sublimation. We're not really sure how the process works, but that surely doesn't look appetizing enough to swallow in the morning!

#2. No need to rub your glasses and do a major cleanup. You're not seeing blurry.

The Rising Sun Redbud plant is a total collector's item, if you're into plants. It typically grows in North America, and has beautiful yellow leaves that turn orange and red as they mature. But fair warning: the very-confusing flowers can make anyone question if they've had a few to drink!

#3. No, that's not a toy egg, or a kinder surprise toy. It's the aftermath of a truly freaky occurrence.

Occasionally, this person's chickens will lay a shell-less egg that's mostly covered by a super soft membrane sack. This probably made laying this egg a total walk in the park for the chicken!

#4. This is what normal plasma looks like on a person with a healthy weight, versus plasma from an obese person.

Apparently, having a lot of junk in the trunk can actually alter the composition of plasma and tissue fatty acids in the blood. The difference between these tubes is pretty abysmal!

#5. These beautiful shades of sand don't come from different places around the world.

Oh no! These exotic shades of sand were all collected in the Sahara desert. But for some reason, we can't help but think it kind of looks like a new bronzer you could find at Sephora!

#6. No, this photo isn't a heavy metal band album cover. We've all actually looked like this at some point!

This child's skull shows a complete rows of teeth just waiting to come out and replace baby teeth.

#7. In Germany, Oktoberfest turns a few stomachs, which is why they have placed "puke sinks" in some public places.

Ironically, this is both totally civilized, and completely uncivilized at the same time, as clearly, they think it's beyond normal to drink until your guts come out. Better out than in, right?

#8. Have you ever wondered what a fire hydrant looks like on the inside?

It's mildly interesting at best, but for some reason, we can't help but stare. Did anyone else expect it to be filled with water?

#9. Here's a photo of what the inside of the Bromo clock tower of Baltimore City looks like.

Sure, the photo is nice, but now we're left wondering if the person who snapped the photo is actually a villain or a super-hero. According to DC and Marvel, those are the only two types of people who go into clock-towers. Just saying!

#10. When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.

So when life gives you a banana with another banana inside, make banana-nade, I guess! Or a banana split!

#11. In Russia, traffic doesn't get jammed by a bunch of cars, oh no!

As usual, Russia takes things to the extreme! Here's a photo of a guy who's probably late to work after running into a freaking fighter jet on the road!

#12. We're used to seeing the Giza sphinx from the front. After all, who would care to snap a pic from the back?

Well, someone from Twitter did! If you ever wondered what the Giza sphinx looked like from the back, then here it is. It kind of looks like they spent all their time focusing on the details up front and totally forgot about the back, huh?

#13. This is what a 1 litter bottle looks like before expansion, but how are you supposed to expand it to its full capacity at home?

You're not. These are inflated in a factory to the shape we are normally used to seeing. Then they are labeled and rolled out on to a conveyer belt.

#14. This beautiful creation looks like an oil painting you'd see on the walls of a hotel.

But it's actually a vivid photo of the polar aurora on the largest planet in the solar system, Jupiter, which is known for its colorful storms.

#15. This person took a pretty cool photo of another plane from the cabin.

But you know what would take this "mildly interesting" pic to the next level? If the plane was actually facing the camera.

#16. Someone sliced this carrot open only to find that it's got some pretty interesting rhomboid holes when cut crosswise.

We certainly hope that these pretty rhomboid holes aren't actually bug tunnels, though!

#17. This dog's ears look like a pretty confusing optical illusion.

If you stare at his ears, you'll quickly find a pretty strange pattern that makes it look like his own face. It kind of feels like Mother Nature was feeling a bit artistic!

#18. Okay, so this gigantic butt-shaped mushroom is truly a rare occurrence, but we have some questions.

How did they get this mushrooms to grow this big? But most importantly, did they resist the urge to spank it?

#19. No, that's not a pretty pendant, or a strange pill. It's a pill camera you can swallow to get a digital endoscopy.

While this is insanely advanced and all, we do hope they clean these up real good, as you know….other patients have swallowed these cameras before…if you know what we're getting at.

#20. Humans really suck, and usually don't give a damn about placing their man-made objects in a forest.

But in this case, we believe that putting this sign was absolutely necessary. What if it could've been warning hikers of imminent danger? Or asking them to take a different road? We'll never know what this sign was supposed to say after this tree has totally grown around this sign.
