Good news for history buffs – a network of ancient tunnels has been found running under the city of Puebla, Mexico.

Rumored to be used by churches communicating in secret, the tunnels are estimated to reach 10 kilometers in length, with four entrances already uncovered. The discovery was entirely accidental, as the tunnels were unearthed during public works.

 

Puebla is one of the oldest cities in Mexico and is a UNESCO World Heritage site.

According to the manager of the Cultural Heritage and Historical Center of Puebla, Sergio Vergara Bermejo, the tunnels were part of the city’s foundation, with its construction date estimated to around 500 years ago. An old bridge has also been found, which was buried due to ancient floods.

The tunnels were covered in mud and silt and needs further excavation.

What Happens If You Throw Meat in Piranha Infested Waters

Imagine accidentally falling in there.

If there's one place that I'm deathly scared of, it's murky water. Just thinking about the number of creatures lurking in the depths of the sea or river is enough to give me an anxiety attack. The stuff of your nightmares can be as big as great white sharks or as small as a transparent jellyfish, the one that can kill you by the merest touch.

What about this little creatures with teeth that can tear you to bits?

Heroic Dog Saved a Premature Baby from a Dumpster in Thailand

This dog is a total hero!

Dogs are man's best friend not only because they are there to accompany or protect us but because they can really care and sometimes even exhibit humanitarian characteristics.

Pui, a dog in Thailand, just proved how dogs like him can care like humans do by saving a premature baby which he found in the dumpster. He was just wandering around their community when he found a white plastic bag and handed it to his owner Gumnerd Thongmak. Gumnerd, then, immediately opened the plastic and saw a newborn baby girl inside. Gunmerd brought the baby to a hospital which the doctors found to have been born prematurely.

It′s lucky that Little Pui found the baby. It was a surprise to us, since Little Pui never brought anything home, only barking at strangers when he’s out and about.

Fascinating Video Shows Painstaking Process of Creating Handmade Globes

With painstaking attention to detail, this company produces handcrafted globes that are as beautiful as they are educational.

Remember how fascinated we were with globes as a youngster? I myself have fond memories to share. I can recall I used to sit around with my friends as we look at the globe displayed in our classroom. We’d test our young minds’ knowledge, trying to locate countries for fun.

Fast forward to the future though, globes are no longer as interesting as they used to be. Many adults see them simply as classroom or office objects that are added to make a table look less dull. Globes, especially the store-bought ones, have become boring.

Well, Peter Bellerby of Bellerby & Co. begs to differ. If you will look at the globes they produce, you’ll probably agree with them that globes are actually far from boring.
