We all know its Friday the 13th again, and just so you know there are at least two every year. Occasionally we have three Friday the 13th’s in one calendar year. The last one was in 2009 and it will happen again in 2015. Instead of repeating the same old numerological information found just about anywhere and regurgitated every Friday the 13th, how about something more unique like a Freaky Friday montage? Instead of making your brain hurt with math, astrology, numerology or history, eye candy is much easier to digest on a Friday, so here’s your Freaky Friday in Fotos (Photos) to keep your mind off the mirror you broke this morning or the neighbors black cat that almost tripped you walking to the car.
The Bees Knees and Freaky Trees
Literally called the ‘Freaky Tree’ apparently named so for the enchanted looking placement of the knots in the trunk of this tree in Great Britain.
If that’s “knot” freaky enough how about the “Cyclops tree” which as of 2007 stands in the Lower Lydbrook Riverside Park and supposedly follows your every move with its single all seeing eye.
Freaky Fish Tales
This photo was taken by an oceanographer at NASA as a part of a 1999 expedition in search of Giant Squid. The photo entitled “Giant squid strange bedfellows” was obviously taken as a perspective measurement to depict the size of the giant squid, and he looks really comfortable doing so, maybe he needs a pillow or some cocktail sauce.It is still disputed as to whether this is an actual new species of skate, called the Longnose skate “Raja rhina” yet they are listed on the “Red List” of threatened species and since they live around 1,000 meters deep studying the skate species has been difficult in general.
It’s A Sign (But What Does It Say?)
Your guess is as good as anyone else’s. Pictorial signs are meant to defy all language barriers and send a simple warning message, yet some signs make you wonder if you’re missing something?
Perhaps that sign was easy to figure out for you, how about this one? The photo was taken at Mirambeena Regional Park, Australiain 2006.
Cat Got Your Tongue?
The sand cat is extremely rare and very similar in size and appearance to our domesticated house cats. As you can guess they live primarily in sand dunes and have a remarkable ability to walk so lightly that they do not leave footprints in the sand. They also bury their poop in the sand (go figure) which according to scientists makes it difficult to study their diets. There are just 36 sand cats in the US with just 116 in the entire world.
The Sphynx cat is a well known breed of course, but that doesn’t make it any less freaky to see a hairless feline, the perfect solution to hairballs and shedding. The following photo was named “Chicken Cat”, perhaps because of the constant goosebumps from not having a coat?
Fear Is For The Birds
This photo is perhaps the freakiest of all for the pilot of the motorized hang glider who seems to have no clue that he is being drafted.
Hopefully you enjoyed a little change and decided to Forget Friday The 13th, and Enjoy American Live Wire’s Freaky Friday In Fotos (Photos)!
