#1 Behind the scenes photo of MGM Intro

A photo of a lion strapped onto a machine in order to make the iconic MGM intro of a lion roaring is actually a photo of a lion being diagnosed at the vet’s office. Luckily, the lion made a wonderful recovery and is now completely healthy. Also, an interesting fact is that there have been 7 lions that were used to create the MGM intro, the current one, who’s name is Leo, has appeared in most of the movies since 1957.

#2 A guy creating an amazing fried rice wave

One of the recent viral sensations was the ‘fried rice meme’ that showed a man making an incredible rice wave in his pan. The image quickly received a lot of attention online and people from all around the world starting photoshopping random things into the image. Unfortunately, the photo itself is already fake since the rice wave is a sculpture that is sold in a fake food shop in Tokyo.

#3 A kid sleeping near his deceased parents’ graves in Syria

A photo of a kid sleeping near his deceased parents’ grave in Syria turned out to be completely staged since the kid knew the photographer and the graves did not belong to his parents. Although this type of photography is still completely heartbreaking it proves once again you can’t trust everything you see online.

#4 Astronaut smoking marijuana in space

It’s safe to say that Chris Hadfield is one of the most beloved Astronauts there is. His incredible vlogs from space answered so many questions about life in zero gravity, from cleaning your teeth to sleeping, everything is different in space. Although this form of vlogging is very one-of-a-kind, you shouldn’t think that this incredible guy would use any type of drugs while literally flying in space. Chris was actually just trying to surprise his co-workers with some Easter eggs!

#10 Perfect lenticular clouds

Lenticular clouds are already pretty cool as they are, and there is no need for excessive photoshop to make them look better.

If we could make a list of the internet’s most beloved topics, weird animals would definitely have their place in the top 10. It seems that finding weird and unique species is something everyone thrives in, and although it is a cool thing to come across a unique animal, there is no need to create one with photoshop, or if you’re doing so, please do not try to trick people into thinking it actually exists.
