Following the twin earthquakes that recently rocked Japan, bewildered citizens have discovered some mysterious foamy substance engulf the streets of Fukuoka city last Saturday, April 16, 2016.

People have been posting images and videos of the said foam on social media which has led to various speculations. Some have speculated that underground water pipes may have burst because of the intense tremor. So far though, no one has come up with an official confirmation about what they really are.

After two strong earthquakes struck Japan, a mysterious foamy substance filled the streets of Fukuoka.

Japan has suffered two tremors and the reports tell us that the total death count is already 41 and counting with over 1,500 people injured. Roads and buildings have been destroyed plus mudslides have washed away bridges. The tragic quake also left 410,000 homes with no water and 200,000 without electricity.

Puzzled residents speculated that the foam may have been caused by broken underground water piping system.

Shinzo Abe, prime minister of Japan, said:

“Nothing is more important than human life and it’s a race against time. Daytime today is the big test. I want rescue activities to continue with the utmost effort.”

So far, no official statement or confirmation from the authorities have been released to address the mystery.

Residents eventually had to line up for food and water at the emergency aid centers set up by the government. Additionally, officials have expressed concern about possible heavy rainfall which may additional trigger landslides and may obstruct ongoing rescue efforts.

For a meager income of $1.08 or Php50, an 80-year-old grandfather known as Manong Lauro walks 20 kilometers every day from his home in Bitukang Manok in Pandi, Bulacan to Real Cacarong.

This Manong (Mah-noh-ng-- a Filipino term earmarked for a person who is older than you), relentlessly walks the streets carrying a bucket-full of bagoong or shrimp/krill paste and sells it from house to house.

Watch This Fearless Man ‘Wrestle’ With His Best Friend, A 1,300-Pound Grizzly Bear

With their big, round eyes and huge, furry bodies, bears definitely look gentle, adorable and huggable. But the only way most of us can come close to hugging these magnificent creatures is by buying ourselves a teddy bear. Of course, we can safely give that one a bear hug and not expect to be mauled, bitten, or ripped apart.

The Revenant is probably one of the movies that illustrated the strength of a full-grown grizzly. Although a stuntman, the visual effects team, and the rest of the amazing staff worked together to make that epic scene appear very realistic, they’ve successfully shown the audience how and what it’s like to be attacked by a huge bear.

Parasites may be microscopic in size, but it’s that very reason why they are among the horrifying creatures that exist on the planet.

This parasite or louse belongs to the same subphylum as crabs or lobster, Crustacea. You’ll be very grateful that it is a parasite that only thrives on fish. Females can reach a length of an inch and males are smaller, about half the size of females.
