Have you ever heard about the Capuchin Catacombs in Sicily? Well, they have some of the world’s best preserved mummies, and one of them belongs to an Italian little girl named Rosalia Lombardo. She’s the most famous of all the 8,000 mummies lining the catacombs beneath the Capuchin convent in Palermo, Sicily.
Little Rosalia died in 1920. According to research, she died of pneumonia at the age of two. Her father, Mario Lombardo was deeply saddened by her sudden death that he requested Alfredo Salafia, a well-known Sicilian embalmer to preserve her. Up to now, Rosalia’s body remained almost completely intact after being preserved for nearly 100 years.
Although little is known about the little girl, many called her as the “Sleeping Beauty” of Capuchin Catacombs, being so well-preserved that it looks like she is sleeping in her coffin. Poking above a blanket, her peaceful face is framed by curly blond hair, while a ribbon is still tied around her head. But, the most eerie thing about her body is that many believe she still opens and closes her eyes many times during the day.
Here’s the time-lapse series of photos:
These photos were captured over the lapse of two hours and had been a subject of many speculations for several years.
However, one man had an explanation for this. In an interview with Capuchin Catacomb curator Dario Piombino-Mascali, he claimed that this spooky phenomenon is “an optical illusion produced by the light that filters through the side windows, which during the day is subject to change.” He further added that Rosalia’s eyes are “not completely closed, and indeed they have never been.” So, people can still see her intact blue eyes. Amazing mummification!

But, is it really an optical illusion? Let us know what you think.
This Mysterious Dog Teleports Out of Nowhere During a Street Race in Chile. Mind-Blowing!
How this mysterious dog appears out of thin air had everyone scratching their heads.
There are only few “must see” videos in the internet and apparently, this is one of them.
Before I decided to share this video, I watched it several times just to make sure this isn't a camera trick. I've also searched about this incident and to my surprise, a lot of people have said this video is authentic. Is this actually a glitch in the Matrix or something? Until now I still can’t give a definite explanation to this fast-paced, jaw-dropping clip.
The video was taken during a street race in Chile. Two cars are racing so fast as it passes by the person who took the video. While the camera pans around, a dog suddenly appears out of nowhere and crossed the road to the other side of the highway. The mysterious dog, instantly appears right in the middle of the speeding cars, apparently unharmed. All these happened in just a split of a second....

Guy’s Death-Defying Profession Will Make You Stop Complaining About Your Job
If you fear heights, don’t watch…
Usually before you apply for a job, you ponder long and hard to consider a lot of things: salary, position, benefits including factors that may pose risk to your life and limb. Some jobs require applicants to show their skills or apply their education on an specific office work, while others require workers to go out of their comfort zones and face their fears like fear of heights.
Take for instance, Kevin Schmidt whose day job requires him to climb soaring-high structures like the 1,500 ft TV tower captured in the video. Schmidt is a project manager of a tower and communication company in South Dakota with an unusual task of simply changing a light bulb on top of a structure that is higher than the New York’s Empire State Building. The bulb is intended to keep aircraft away or afar from the tower.
Watch the mind-blowing video:
Imagine someone designed and built a tall tower and then hires a person that has the ability and the nerve to do menial maintenance work after scaling dizzying structures. That architectural builder might be a sadist making you realize that this is not a dream job that most people would look up for. Yet for Schmidt climbing up and down the tower is just another day at work, he can even go far as taking a usual selfie snap while doing his usual routine....
