Millions of bicycles are left abandoned in several cities in China as a result of an oversupply from Bike-share services. At first, these companies thought that this kind of business would boom, but unfortunately, to their dismay, it did not.

Ever since the fall of Bike-share companies, the government is trying to figure out what to do with the bicycle graveyards. See some of the photos below:

This is definitely not the type of thing you want to see when you’re outside your house. However, it’s exactly what greeted Australian homeowner Robbie Knills of Mudgeeraba, Gold Coast one day – a huge python.

According to reports, Robbie was “hanging out his washing” when he spotted the serpent which measures about three meters in length. He took a video of the encounter and you can see how fast the snake climbs.

This will totally scare me!

They say metalheads just don't know how to quit. Two elderly gentlemen proved that when they disappeared from a German assisted living facility. The aging metal fans were discovered at the 2018 Wacken Open Air in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany. Interestingly, the two appeared to be having so much fun that they initially refused to leave the biggest heavy metal festival in the world.

The unidentified men reportedly went missing from the nursing home on Friday, August 3. The staff were understandably worried for the pair and immediately contacted the police. However, nobody expected the men to turn up where they did. These senior citizens turned out to be metalheads who wanted to sneak out and attend the Wacken Open Air.

The summer heat can get unbearable for most people. Not surprisingly, animals also suffer from the humidity and sometimes take drastic measures to keep their cool. One deer certainly had a brilliant idea. The animal was found "doing laps" in a swimming pool and seemed to be enjoying itself too much.

Unfortunately for the deer, the homeowner wasn't so happy about seeing a wild animal doing aquatic cardio in their pool. The police were called in to remove the mammal. Interestingly, the four-legged swimmer looked annoyed that its workout was being interrupted.
