25. Human Popeye Arm Wrestler
MEET Matthias “Hellboy” Schlitte, the German arm wrestling phenomenon with one enormous arm.
While his left arm is normal size, Schlitte’s right is Popeye-like due to a rare genetic defect that makes his right forearm bone 33 per cent larger than his left. Schlitte first hit the arm wrestling circuit as a 16-year-old on the advice of his mother, and was ridiculed because of his light 65kg frame.
But what his competitors didn’t realise is that much of that weight was taken up by his right limb.

1. You Got Hit By The Rainbow
The above photo got spread around the Internet earlier this year with that exact title, claiming the photographer had found the exact spot the rainbow “landed” on the highway, as if it’s a goddamned stationary structure rather than a play of light and water particles that changes depending on where you’re standing.
Go ahead and read the countless infuriating comments from people confirming it and talking about the time they also found a rainbow ending in their back yard, with the few dissenters screaming “Photoshop!”
It’s neither, of course, since the rainbow exists only from the driver’s point of view and here is just continuing down through the mist coming off the street (you can kind of see the arc continuing down through the pavement). But don’t let us ruin the illusion! Come back with a jackhammer and dig up your pot of gold!
