They say curiosity is lust of the mind. The more you see, the more you want to know. There are so many ways to view things around you; you can look at them from the side, you can look at them upside-down, and you can even look at them through rose-tinted glasses.
The modern world is full of so many cool things, but how do they actually work? We might not know how these things function, but we can at least know what they look like inside by cutting them in half. Here are 30 photos of objects cut in half to reveal their hidden side.

Harpy Eagles Are A Cool Reminder That Mythical Creatures Actually Exist
These awesome birds are terrifyingly majestic!
Anyone who has ever seen a harpy eagle will immediately be taken back by the creature's beauty. These gorgeous birds are known for their size and curious name. Interestingly, harpy eagles are named after the mythical monsters for a really great reason: they are somehow mythical creatures themselves.
Harpy eagles were first described by Linnaeus in his Systema Naturae in 1758 as Vultur harpyja. The species name harpyja comes from Ancient Greek harpyia in reference to the Harpies of Ancient Greek mythology. Harpies are wind spirits that took the dead to Hades and were said to have a body like an eagle and the face of a human. It's a fitting name for the harpy eagle indeed.
