7 Secret Places Hidden in Famous Undiscovered Locations

Декабрь 30, 2016

Hidden undiscovered places, maybe underground? With millions of tourists visiting the likes of the Great Sphinx, Disney World and the Tower of London every year.....

Narration provided by JaM Advertising New Mexico www.tasteofjam.com

We all know the Egyptian Pyramids are packed with secret rooms, great treasures and angry mummies who want to chew your face off, but what many don't realise is that the Great Sphinx of Giza is also hiding a few secrets of its own.What most people refer to as the Tower of London isn't really a tower at all, it's a castle, and this iconic landmark has stood on the north bank of the River Thames for nearly a millennia. There are actually two secret places inside the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France, but they both had very different purposes. As you might expect, the future summerhouse of President-elect Donald Trump has a fair few secret rooms which are accessible only by high-command and the President himself. Sadly, Mount Rushmore doesn't contain the secret headquarters of Team America like the movie told us, but it is home to a large titanium vault full of historical documents called the Hall of Records.Ever since German agents caused an explosion in the Statue of Liberty torch room back in 1916, the public has been prohibited from taking a stroll past Lady Liberty's pits to the area atop her outstretched arm. Ever heard of the tennis tournament that takes place beneath Grand Central Station?

0:9 17 Google Map Images You Won't Believe Exist

17 Google Map Images You Won't Believe Exist

From a heart shaped island to a giant bunny these are some of the weirdest google map images you won't believe actually exist!


10 — You’re not safe anywhere!
So besides the vehicles that capture the images for Google Maps, there are also trikes, trolleys, snowmobiles, SUV’s and satellites that capture the images throughout the year. So you are really not safe anywhere!
So when this poor woman needed to go – she really needed to go. What she didn’t need, was Google taking a picture of her doing her business. Granted she did have a whiz on the side of the road in broad daylight – but I doubt she ever imagined that she would be seeing this image online!


9 — How’s this for a “space” ship…
This is the SS Jassim, and it’s one of the largest ship wrecks visible from Google Earth. It’s no surprise really, as the ferry is 80.54 metres long and 13 metres wide.
Just a little bit of FYI, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric administration, there are roughly 1 million shipwrecks at this exact point in time.
It was in 2003 that the SS Jassim sank just off the coast of Sudan.


8 — What do they teach our kids?
Imagine asking someone what school they go to, and they reply – Oh, the school with the giant penis. I’m sure you will be a bit surprised, but it’s the truth. The Clancy Catholic School has been vandalized with the etchings of 3 giant penises.
The school has been struggling to get the image removed from Google Maps, and have had no luck so far.


7 — No joke…
Google Maps has really uncovered many things that some people would rather forget. This image has brought out buried memories for Jose Barrera, who believes that the image he is seeing, is the body of his deceased 14-year-old son, who was killed in 2009.


6 — Speculate away… because there are loads of “unexplained” images just like this doing the rounds on Google Maps.
Sad to say though, there is no alien involvement and all of them have a pretty logical explanation. Desert Breath began in 1995, and is still visible after all this time. It’s over a million square feet, and found in the eastern Sahara Desert, bordering the Red Sea. The team displaced 8000 cubic metres of sand to create these incredible shapes.

5 — We found him…
That’s Wally of course, and this was a project by Melanie Coles. For her final year art project, she created a massive Where’s Wally and popped it on the roof of a building in Vancouver. She challenged people to play using Google Earth, and offered a real life version of the very popular game. She did of course get an A for her efforts.

4 — Sheer beauty
This is the Grand Prismatic Spring, in the Yellowstone National Park, and Google Maps has captured its beauty brilliantly.


3 — Say cheese
There are many Google Map images of faces. There’s an Oprah Winfrey Maze, Pumkins sketched into fields, Suns appearing in crops, the smiling face of the Versailles Gardens, we’ve seen “lips” and bare bottoms appearing out of hay bales and trees… but this image is just so unique. It’s of a native American Indian peering out from the hills of Alberta, in Canada. A mix between old and new, as it appears like she is wearing headphones.


2 — Hop to it…
If you were to go for a hike in Northern Italy’s mountainside sometime between now and 2025, don’t be surprised when you come across this gigantic bunny.
It’s 55 meters long, and was meant to make its audience feel tiny, like I Gulliver’s travels. It’s made from straw and fabric, and will decompose naturally. The say by 2025 it will be gone.


1 — Just for the love of it…
And our last image – just because we love what we do… here is a heart shaped island, just for you.
Made famous by Google Maps, this 130 000-foot islet is now a lover’s hot spot. Apparently no one lives on the island, so the owner said it would be the perfect place for a romantic getaway.
So book your next romantic getaway now… just be careful that Google Maps doesn’t snap you in the act!

8:15 16 Places You're Not Allowed To Visit

16 Places You're Not Allowed To Visit

These 16 places are highly guarded and mysterious places are not easy to get to and visit like the dangerous radioactive Chernobyl.

Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr

7. The Colonel's LIttle Secret
Similar to the Coca Cola vault, Colonel Sanders really doesn’t want anyone else replicating his mighty fine, fingerlicking good recipe. He has a total of 11 herbs and spices he mixes in there and the recipe is stored in the an upgraded modern security facility at the headquarters in Kentucky. What are they putting in our chicken? According to rumor, even the President of KFC doesn’t know the recipe, so don’t try bribing the drive through to give it up.

6. Room 39
It’s not like anyone would willingly want to go to North Korea but if someone were to try to get into Room 39 it would be extremely difficult. At an undisclosed location, most likely in or near the capital of Pyongyang, lies a rumored headquarter that's in charge of North Korea's underground activities. They are mostly in charge of gathering foreign currency in whatever way possible. Whether it’s drugs, counterfeits arms deals the lists go on. If North Korea were to get a hold of a nuke, it would most likely have to come from foreign counterfeit.

5. Chernobyl
No one is legally able to visit the Chernobyl exclusion zone without permission from the Ukrainian government, which basically means it’s off limits. Some people are willing to take the risk to visit the abandoned city but it’s extremely risky especially for foreigners who don’t speak Russian well. The only way you’re getting in here is with a heavy bribe to the police if you’re stopped. In just a short period of time you might be able to get away with visiting the outskirts without too much bodily damage. The sludge that’s left here after the literal meltdown of the radioactive materials is known as the elephant's foot as you see in this photo is still extremely lethal. Just after 300 seconds of exposure gives you only 2 days to live. It’s actually still melting and could one day seep into the ground water. Good luck!

4. Ozyorsk, Russia
Sometimes entire cities can be completely off limits in Russia. Located in the Chelyabinsk Oblast Region, Ozyorsk is considered a closed town due to how close it is to the Mayak plant. However people do live here, you're just not invited to this one. The Mayak plant is a facility that processes nuclear waste and decommissions decaying weapons of mass destruction. It used to be a location where the Soviet Union would find its source of plutonium. The area is now polluted with industrial and radioactive waste.

3. Svalbard Global Seed Vault
If the world were to come to a tragic end or certain species of plants have become extinct, the svalbard seed vault has got their back! Located only 800 miles south of the North Pole in Norway lies a vault that has a set goal on preserving plant diversity and holding on to large amounts of seeds in the case of an emergency. More than 400, 000 crop seeds are stored here and includes seeds for 32 varieties of potatoes. The Norwegian government spent 9 million dollars on this facility that one besides scientists can go to and maybe some day it’ll be useful.

2. The Demilitarized Zone
Also known as the 38th Parallel, the demilitarized zone was created at the end of the Korean War to keep the two countries at peace. It’s considered to be neutral territory that neither country is allowed to cross and at least a 10 mile wide buffer zone between the two. It’s most heavily militarized border in the worlds Near this zone, you’ll notice quite a few landmines, armed soldiers, watch towers. You can almost feel the tension about to burst. North Korea even built the 4 largest flagpole in the world in order to giver the southerners a view of communism. You’re really not allowed to visit this zone, and some how if you find away, you may bring on another world war.

1.Area 51 Nevada
No other place seems to be so secret yet well known at the same time. Also located within the isolated National Nevada Security Site, the government only recently admitted its existence. They claim to use the smooth, dry lake bed known as groom lake as a runway for experimenting with new aircraft. But do to the extreme restriction many wonder exactly what’s going on out there. Motion detectors and thermal body heat detectors are spread across desert and will detect anyone who thinks about coming close. Not to mention the constant surveillance of drones that relentlessly monitor the area for trespassers. Conspiracy theorist claim the government is holding extraterrestrial life forms or even their flying saucers at this location, but it’s restricted, i guess we’ll never find out exactly, will we?

10:56 8 Shocking Discoveries That Made Us Rethink History

8 Shocking Discoveries That Made Us Rethink History

Thankfully, since history is all on computers now it's pretty easy to rewrite when we discover something which challenges are previously held historical beliefs.

When you think of Jesus Christ you probably imagine him as a long haired, bearded gentleman in sandals, a white robe and some sort of fruity red sash as if he's the prom queen or something. It has long been established that Christopher Columbus was not the first European to arrive on the American continent, he just shouted first! the loudest and got the most likes is all. Around 6, 500 years ago the ancient city states of Mesopotamia rose in modern-day Iraq and Iran to form the world's first civilised societies, and we refer to this region now as the Cradle of Civilization. Over the past few years the mummified remains of around 40 Buddhist monks have been found in China, India and Mongolia, including this 200 year old fella found in January 2015This next entry demonstrates just how much our current scientific theories can be blasted out of the water by a single discovery. Marco Polo is thought to be one of the first Europeans to have met and interacted with the Chinese people during the 13th Century, but just like Chris Columbus he might have been beaten by some distance by yet another civilisation from classical antiquity — the ancient Greeks.As an addendum to the discovery of ancient Greek influence in China, we've also recently found evidence that ancient Chinese explorers made it further than we thought too.A discovery which rewrites Earth history is pretty snazzy itself, but how about one which changes our theory on the history of Mars?

7 BIGGEST Underwater Mysteries We Still Don't Understand

7 BIGGEST Underwater Mysteries

From an underwater stonehenge to a picture of a mastadon on a rock to magnetic anomolies in a strange lake, these are the 7 biggest underwater mysteries will still don't understand.

Narration provided by JaM Advertising New Mexico www.tasteofjam.com

Ivan Terence Sanderson was a Scottish biologist who first coined the term "Vile Vortex" to describe areas of unusual phenomena found around the world. He claimed there were twelve such areas, and barring the few on land in Asia, Africa and Antarctica; most of these areas can be found out at sea, with the most famous being — the Bermuda Triangle.

Right now the only people playing "hide the sub" should be Jared from Subway's cellmates, but in 1968 someone or something caused not one, not two, but four submarines to randomly disappear around the world.

Stonehenge is one of the most famous historical monuments in the world, but it is far from the only random arrangement of old-timey stones humanity has uncovered. We've seen similar sites across Europe, Asia, Africa and America, but none of these were ever discovered underwater.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration constantly monitor the ocean for unique sounds emanating from the ocean. They pick up all sorts of strange and weird noises every day, yet whilst most can be explained, the origin of some has never been determined.

With a name like that you know this thing isn't gonna be small. Leptocephalus Giganteus is an eel species of which only two have ever been observed, and on both occasions they were undeveloped larvae. The first sighting was in 1930 off the coast of South Africa, when Danish scientist Anton Brunn captured a 6ft specimen. He recognised it as the larvae of a Leptocephalus, who are typically around one thirtieth of the adult's size, which means if fully matured it could have grown to over 180ft.

There are countless examples of marine biologists estimating the size of an ocean dwelling creature only to encounter one far larger than anyone thought possible. One such event occurred in Japan's Suruga Bay, where Japanese scientists detected a huge 30ft shark, leading some to wonder whether the prehistoric Megalodon, which measured up to 59 feet, could still be lurking somewhere at the bottom of the ocean today.

Southern Siberia's Lake Baikal is the largest freshwater lake in the world, and not only is it incredibly ancient, clocking in at 25-30 million years old, but the lake and surrounding area also contains a rich biodiversity of over 1000 plant species and 2500 animal species, of which 80% exist nowhere else in the world.

Lets also point out the obvious — this is the signature of the treasurer of the united states, as indicated underneath, and this is the signature of the secretary of the treasury... in case you can't follow the pattern. This marking indicates what year that particular dollar design originated and just above it is the treasury department seal, which authenticates the note. On closer inspection you'll notice a balance, which indicates justice, a key, which indicates trust, and an inverted v shape, known as a chevron, which has 13 starts within it. That number 13 is kindaa a recurring theme, we'll explain it soon. On the reverse, back side of the note you will notice that it attempts to encapsulate the ideologies of the new nation that the founding fathers wanted to preserve following the declaration of independence. In the centre you'll see the official US motto 'in god we trust' that was adopted in 1956. The two circles you see on either side are the two halves which make up the great seal. Why are there two halves? Let's start with the heraldic Bald Eagle, which you'll also notice is printed in purple on the five dollar bill. In front of the eagle is an unsupported shield which symbolizes the fledgling country's ability to stand on its own. The eagle is biting on a ribbon which has the phrase 'e pluribus unum' engraved on it. That means 'out of many — one' in latin. Above the eagles head is a load of stars in what's known as a 'glory' — a feature that's made to look like its bursting out of a cloud, symbolising a new nation led by God. The cap, or triangle encasing the eye is separated to symbolise that the United States is still far from finished and the rising sun behind it is supposed to represent a new nation that has begun — it even leaves a shadow to the west as back then that was the direction of undiscovered lands. The motto at the top read 'annuit coeptis' meaning "he has favoured our undertakings" and the motto at the bottom reads "novus ordo seclorum" — thats a harry potter spell. The shield has 13 horizontal stripes and 13 vertical bars and there are 13 stars above the eagles head, each with 13 be amazed logos inside. Alight, maybe not the last one. Anyhow, the number 13 was maybe a tiiiinnny bit special to the founding fathers as it symbolises the 13 original colonies. An owl mark would symbolise the illuminati and a spider would fit with the webbed background theme. Both may seem plausible, but sadly there is an even better explanation for this. After overlaying a transposed section of the web from the bottom part of the bill, it is clear that this is just an unintentional feature.

7 MYTHICAL Creatures that Actually EXISTED

7 Mythical Creatures that Actually Existed

From hobbits to krakens, vampires, things from the game of thrones, to...well...some other scary stuff, these are 7 Mythical Creatures that Actually Existed.

Narration provided by JaM Advertising New Mexico www.tasteofjam.com

In 2003 a team led by archaeologist Mike Morwood conducted an excavation on the island of Flores in Indonesia, when they discovered the skeleton of a human only a pinch taller than one metre. But it wasn't a child, and nor was it a prehistoric Danny De Vito. This skeleton is believed to be an example of the long extinct homo floresiensis, a hobbit-like creature which lived between 50, 000 and 100, 000 years ago.

The number of Dire Wolves in Game of Thrones seems to be diminishing by the episode, but these giant hounds were a real species, and the last is thought to have died out only 10, 000 years ago. Their Latin name is Canis dirus, which translates as fearsome hound, and fearsome they certainly were. It's teeth were capable of gliding through flesh like a sword through Ned Stark's neck — oh by the way spoiler alert, but heck if you've not seen the first damn series then what are you even doing with your life?

If you've seen our mysteries of the ocean video you'll know that Colossal Squids are thought to roam the oceans, but could one have grown to such a size that it could take down an entire ship?

Whilst there's no evidence of any human beings transforming into a bat, or being able get away with having such a clichéd accent without being punched in the face, many of the ailments and qualities vampires supposedly possessed have been observed and diagnosed in humans, leading many to wonder if these conditions were the original source of the vampire myth.

The internet is obsessed with three things — kitty cats, bacon and zombies. If you could combine the three into some sort of café where they serve you the smoked flesh of reanimated felines who sit casually on your lap as you consume their delicious zombie kitty-bacon, you'd make millions.

n our recent video on the possibilities of genome editing we heard about a genetic scientist who claimed the creation of flying dragons was technically feasible, but as most of you who've been to the zoo already know, dragons genuinely do exist, albeit much smaller ones minus the fire and wings. But what you might not have known is exactly how big they used to be.

The South Korean legend of the Imugi talks of a long serpent-like dragon which was not a destructive gold-hoarding psychopath like those from European folklore, this one was actually quite a nice guy. It is likely that this mythical beast was based on the huge reticulated pythons found across Asia, of which largest was a quarter tonne monstrosity which measured 24 feet and was found on a Malaysian building site earlier this year. Imagine finding that on your lunch-break.

8:1 13 Disney Park Secrets

13 Disney Park Secrets

Family's from all over visit Disney, but do they know Disney has many hidden secrets? These are 13 shocking Disney park Secrets.

Subscribe for weekly wacky videos and learn interesting facts about the world with awesome top 10 lists and other amazing videos.

7 — Animal Kingdom – At one point the famous Animal Kingdom was supposed to include a separate attraction within the attraction called “Beastly Kingdom.” This would be dedicated to mythical creatures and probably include some animatronics. Even though that idea never made its way to fruition there is a subtle nod to the project on the sign for Animal Kingdom. In the middle of a rhino and elephant you can see the silhouette of a dragon. We met you’ve never noticed THAT before!

6 — Smellitizers – If you’ve ever visited a Disney park and noticed a certain smell in a certain place, well that’s no accident. Smellitizers are devices that can be found in the tunnels below the parks and are located throughout Disney parks to emit certain smells in certain areas. Some of the most obvious smells are the smell of fresh baked cookies and vanilla on Main Street, fresh citrus on the Soarin’ ride, and a salty smell on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride. Some of the less obvious, but definitely noteworthy smells are the smell of honey on Pooh’s adventures and burning wood on Spaceship Earth.

5 — Cinderella's castle – Cinderella’s castle may be the most well-known landmark in all of Disney parks. Everyone knows what it looks like and everyone knows where it’s located. What not many people know is that hidden inside the castle is a private guest suite, reserved for contest winners only. You cannot book this suite and it is given to families for use about once every two weeks. The suite has only been used approximately 600 times. Not only do you get a car to drop you at the Magic Kingdom, but you also get a personal guide to accompany you around the park acting as a personal FASTpass for rides and giving you all the information about the park you could ever want. Inside the suite are Disney character relics, such as Cinderella’s glass slipper and Captain Hook’s telescope, as well as a television disguised as a mirror that you use a magic wand to turn on.

4 — The Grey Stuff – A line from the song “Be Our Guest” in the movie Beauty and the Beast has the Lumiere sing “Try the grey stuff, it’s delicious – don’t believe us, ask the dishes!” Now you can try the grey stuff too! When dining at the Be Our Guest restaurant at Disney World, you can order the grey stuff, which is some sort of cookies and cream grey mousse. Originally not located on the menu, it’s now a featured dessert and you should really do yourself a favor and try it, because Lumiere was not lying – it is delicious!

3 — Tom Sawyer Island – This ride, located at Disney World, is a boat ride that takes you over to an island with a Tom Sawyer theme. It’s a very quiet, some would say boring ride. Boring, until you realize that you could walk away with a pretty awesome prize. The island supposedly has paintbrushes hidden all over the place, to recreate Tom Sawyers chore to whitewash his Aunt Polly’s fence. If you’re lucky enough to find a paintbrush, bring it over to your boat driver and they’ll reward you with a fastpass to any one ride in the park. Don’t go crazy looking for all the brushes, though. It’s only good for one brush per family.

2 — Club 33 – Club 33 is one of the cooler secrets within Disneyland. It’s located in the middle of New Orleans Square and is recognized only by a plate attached to the building that says “33.” To be allowed entry into the club, you must be a member, and to become a member you need to get on a waitlist that is estimated to be years long and it’s roughly $25, 000 to join plus $10, 000 in yearly dues. Some of the perks to the club, is –obviously, access to the club itself – alcoholic beverages, since the park is for the most park dry except for certain areas, early park admission, valet parking at the resorts and access to private events held at the park.

1 — Walt’s Apartment – When Walt Disney was designing and constructing Disneyland he wanted to build a special apartment hidden from the chaos of the park, but still within the park. He built the apartment above the Main Street Firehouse. The Disney family would spend time in the apartment, entertaining guests or Walt would do quiet work – his desk was set up against a window overlooking Main Street. A lamp in the window would be left on when Walt was present in the apartment which was a fun thing for guests to see. Since his passing, the light is always burning in the window as a tribute.

List of weirdest things on google earth:
Ghost Island
In 2013 researchers went looking for Sandy Island in the Coral Sea, east of Australia. Scientific databases showed the island to be about the size of Manhattan. Discovered in 1876 by a whaling ship, Sandy Island has been included on maps for more than a century, including, obviously, on Google Earth. When the Australian scientists arrived at the location, the only thing they found was open ocean. There was no other island that could have possibly been Sandy in sight. It just wasn’t there. So what happened to it? Did it sink beneath the waves? Was it just a figment of our imagination? It's possible that what the whaling ship had seen was a pumice raft, a floating raft of frothy light rock produced by volcanoes that can float around for years before breaking up. The island had gained so much fame it actually had an obituary published for it in April 2013. In it the researchers explained how the phantom island could have remained in geographical mind and maps due to human error. This "undiscovery" made headlines around the world and reminds us that despite modern technology, there are still mysteries to be solved in the ocean. Google and National Geographic quickly removed Sandy Island from their maps.
Pentagram
One thing's for sure, this is no crop circle or accident, this pentagram was placed there on purpose. Located in Kazakhstan, this is sure to lead any suspicious mind to the devil’s door. The 5-pointed star surrounded by a circle measures 1, 200 feet (366m) in diameter. Located on the shore of a desolate lake, the pentagram shows up crystal clear on Google Maps if you wanted to look it up yourself. When the image first rose from the underworld to the internet, many were quick to link it, and Google, to devil worship. The pentagram is an ancient symbol used by many cultures and is not always satanic. It turns out that it is simply a park. Archaeologist Emma Usmanova has worked in the region for years and explained that its pathways were purposefully designed to create the shape of a star. The star is marked by roads lined with trees, making the shape stand out. The star was a popular symbol during the Soviet Union and many guessed that the site may have been an abandoned Soviet campground.
Desert Spiral
Google maps has frozen this double spiral in time. When people first saw the formation located in the Egyptian desert near the coast of the Red Sea, all kinds of theories arose. Crop circle, alien message, even a portal to an alternate universe. It’s too large and perfectly designed to have been created by any one person. Well, it was actually created by three women. Known as the Desert Breath, it is a super sized art installation created by DAST Arteam, a trio of Greek artists in March of 2007. The piece covers an area of about 10 hectares (25 acres). According to the artists it’s meant to "celebrate the desert as a state of mind, a landscape for the mind.” The spiral is made up of cones made from sand and is subject to natural erosion. Over time it will disappear and become part of the desert plain once more.
Syrian Holes
Images of the current civil war in Syria is by no means new to the internet. While the destruction on a human level has been caught by photographers and news coverage, satellites have also recorded the damage to hundreds of archaeological sites. All six of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the country, which are considered widely to be one of the oldest occupied areas on Earth have been damaged or destroyed. You can see the destruction for yourself if you were to look up Apamea via Google Earth. The location of the ancient Roman city is now a sea of pockmarked holes stretching over the entire area, left by looters since the start of the wr. Looters and treasure hunters have dug over 4000 holes looking for uncovered treasures to sell on the black market to finance the wr. These holes are about 2-3 meters across and in some cases are used to store weapons.
Airplane Graveyard
This might be one of the biggest, and coolest, graveyards you ever see. Located in Tucson, Arizona, the Davis Monthan Air Force Base is where U.S. military planes often find their final resting place. The cemetery stretches 2, 600 acres and has been nicknamed “The Boneyard.” While the site is closed to the general public, modern day technology holds nothing sacred, not even the dead, and images of it are available for all to see on Google Earth (and other interactive maps). And it is something to see indeed.
