December 2003 this image was caught by the security cameras at Hampton Court Palace, a huge tudor castle near London.
They kept finding the fire door open even when no one was there. Upon viewing the footage they found this ghostly figure who they said resembled King Henry VIII.
A security officer, James Faukes, called the incident “unnerving,” and said they’d ruled out their costumed guides. “In fact, they don’t even own a costume like the one worn by the figure on the video. It was incredibly spooky because the face just didn t look human,” . -BBC

When this Japanese artist learned he was dying from tuberculosis, he decided he wanted to leave a parting gift to the woman he loved. He decided to make her a life-like statue of himself that ended up looking so real it was hard to tell the real Hananuma from the statue when they stood next to each other.
He made each body part separately using dark wood which was painted and lacquered to match his skin tone. He made a tiny individual hole for every pore in his body, then plucked out his own hair (everywhere) and inserted into the exact position in the statue. He removed his own teeth, finger and toe nails which he also placed on the statue. For a final touch he gave the statue his glasses and clothes.
He lived another 10 years and ironically died of poverty (despite his talent) in 1985. You can go see this statue at London Auditorium.
A swiss diver, captured these pictures of one of the six anacondas he saw on his 10 day trip to Mato Grosso in Brazil. This one was about 26-feet long.
"At the first moment it’s scary because you don’t know the animal and everybody says it’s dangerous. ‘But after a while you understand that nothing happens if you respect the snake. ‘I have never been so close to a snake like this before. But I think a small poisonous snake is more scary than a big one. At least you can see the anacondas clearly and know what they’re doing." - Franco Banfi
