The Siberian Times recently released a video that shows some strange things in Siberia’s Belyy Island. The video features Russian scientists Alexander Sokolov and Dorothee Ehrich exploring the island. However, they stop when they encounter a patch of grass that seems to be protruding from the ground.
When Sokolov and Ehrich are shocked when they step on the patch of grass. The ground underneath it seems to be moving. Its effect is described as “like a trampoline.” In the video, Sokolov is shown repeatedly stepping on the spot. It appears to be bouncing back from the force of his foot.
At first, the bouncy patch shocked the Russian scientists.
All in all, Sokolov and Ehrich discovered 15 bouncy patches on the entire Belyy Island. Naturally, they further examined several of them. They managed to puncture them. As the The Siberian Times reported, “When punctured they emitted methane and carbon dioxide, according to measurements, although so far no details have been given.”
There been a number of scientific speculations about the phenomenon so far.
When punctured, the underground bubble emits methane and carbon dioxide.
Siberia is known for its subzero temperatures. Thus, some researchers say that the so-called underground bubbles may have formed when abnormal heat caused the permafrost to thaw and release gases.”
Permafrost is defined as “a thick subsurface layer of soil that remains frozen throughout the year, occurring chiefly in polar regions.”
Watch the underground bubbles make the ground bounch.
The Siberian Times went on to explain, “Scientists have warned at the potential catastrophic impact of global warming leading to the release into the atmosphere of harmful gases hitherto frozen in the ground or under the sea. There’s a possibility that the trembling tundra on Bely Island is this process in action.”
Girl With a Snake Phobia Agrees to a Snake Massage with Burmese Pythons
If you were afraid of snakes, would you dare to be massaged by 4 18-foot Burmese pythons? That’s what one brave girl from the Philippines did!
Fear is the mind's natural reaction to potential threats. People fear heights because falling could kill them. They fear lightning because it's not exactly pleasant to get struck. They fear wild animals because being mauled by a bear or attacked by a shark would most likely leave them dead (unless they're Leonardo DiCaprio in The Revenant).
One way to conquer fear, according to many therapists, is to face it head-on. Which is exactly what this young 19 year-old girl from the Philippines did.
Sunshine has always been afraid of snakes.
17 Shocking Ways You Could Actually Get Pregnant
Is avoiding pregnancy as easy as using condoms and going on the pill? A doctor at Yale University says not!
Ah, the gift of life. With so many sexually active and fertile individuals on the planet, you'd think that most of them would be well aware of what it takes to create a baby. Yes, almost all of them are aware that when the sperm cell meets the egg cell, a baby can be formed. But unfortunately, there are a lot more ways for those two cells to meet than most people know.
Just so you know, this info comes from Dr. Mary Jane Minkin, who is a reproductive health professor from Yale School of Medicine.

8 Funny Dads Who Miserably Failed At Dressing Up Their Babies The Right Way
#3 is a win. LOL!
Being a parent for around 4 years now, I’d say figuring out how to be a good one is mostly a trial-and-error experience. You see I grew up without a dad while my wife grew up without a mom, so for the most we were left to our own devices to learn parenting on our own. Fortunately, we have good friends, we have good books, and we have the internet so we eventually got the hang of things.
Still, I wouldn’t say we had things easy. For once, carrying an infant was a lifelong fear I had to overcome. I thought babies were really fragile and so I never held one my entire life – until our little boy was born.
Plus there were so many other things to learn such as changing diapers, bathing, burping the baby after feeding, and more. It definitely felt overwhelming and there are instances when I was clueless about what to do....
