If you are a frequent user of social media, you’ll see different photos going viral from time to time.
While some of those photos may be shocking, the truth of the matter is that not everything you see online is true. There are many images out there that are simply products of digital manipulation created by people who just have too much time on their hands.
Case in point, these 8 viral photos you’ll see below are nothing but fakes. If you’ve seen them before and thought they were real, then you’ve just been fooled by Photoshoppers.
#1. Seconds from 9/11
This photo of a tourist standing at the top of World Trade Center was allegedly taken just a few seconds before the terror attack. The truth, however, is that this Hungarian man just edited the photo as a joke for his friends. The photo itself was taken in 1997 – that’s four years before the tragic incident occurred.
#2. James Bond Island
Obviously, this image of a castle on top of a Thailand island is also a fake.
#3. New York Apocalypse
A looming wild storm is always a scary sight. Unless, of course, it’s just a doctored photo such as this one.
#4. The Hands of God
Rumors had it that this photo was taken during the wake of a destructive hurricane. Not!
#5. Highway Sharks
During a flood in New Jersey, this terrifying photo circulated online. Fortunately, it was not real.
#6. Tree of Life
This one didn’t require any Photoshop manipulation but the reality is that it is an engraving found at Florida’s Disney Animal Kingdom. So yep, it’s not true that the figures grew naturally.
#7. Plane Crash
If you’re an avid fan of the TV series Lost, then you’ll instantly recognize this. Otherwise, you’ll be led to believe it was real – like a network n Bolivia that run the image on their news show.
#8. Tsunami In Chile
Although clearly a fake, many were led to believe that this photo was real when it went viral in 2004.

In Japan, There’s Such a Thing as a Noodle Bath
Feel the broth on your skin!
If you love baths and you've tried everything, from scented aromatherapy baths to lavish milk baths, why not try bathing in noodles and pork broth? Yep, you read that right. Noodles and pork broth!
At the Yunessun Spa House in Hakone, Japan, there exists such a service in which customers can take a dip in a tub filled with hot broth and noodles. The spa actually used real noodles at first, but when the local health department banned edible noodles due to obvious concerns, the spa resorted to using synthethic noodles instead. The pork broth, as far as we know, is real.

Hikers Run For Their Lives After Trickles Of Stones Become A Massive Landslide
The mountaineers narrowly escaped death.
It started as a trickle of stones but it quickly turned into a huge, terrifying landslide that could have badly injured or killed a group of hikers who were incidentally trekking the Andes Mountains that time.
Julian Insarralde, one of the guides, captured the shocking incident that occurred on the border of Argentina and Chile and released the footage online.
In the video, you’ll see members of the mountain trekking team assist the backpackers one by one, as they leap over a three-foot torrent of rocks....
Guy Sleeping at a Dairy Farm Receives the Most Disgusting Prank from His Colleagues
This will make you think twice about sleeping at work.
You've probably had friends or colleagues play a prank on you while you're trying to sneak some snooze time at the workplace. Maybe they tried to place a paper clip in your openly snoring mouth or maybe they took a picture of your I-look-drugged-and-out appearance and posted the image on Facebook for the entire office to see.
Whatever it is that they did to you, we're pretty sure it's not as bad as what this poor fella got when he fell asleep on the job.
While he was slumped on the chair taking a nap at the dairy farm, his colleagues placed the very cooperative cow behind him and positioned the creature's arse right above his head. You can probably guess what happened next......
