17 No, This Isn't Man-Made
"I watch you change through your window. All of you."
At a glance, you'd say there are two options for this "man in the mountain" photo: It's either a very quick and simple Photoshop job or a very laborious and complex art project that spent months turning the mountainside into an image of a goateed giant who's about to burglarize the shit out of this town.
But it's neither -- it's a completely natural and coincidental formation on a mountainside near Alesund, Norway. Before you call bullshit, here's what it looks like up close, as seen in this photo by climber Arnt Flatmo:
So, not a man then. It's Satan.
The locals call the man in the mountainside "Sulamannen" (hint: The mountain itself is located in the town of Sula), and he only appears when it gets just the right amount of snow. The folklore goes that each winter, like magic, this man in the sock hat and goatee appears and, once everyone is asleep, swoops down and steals your television to sell it for meth money.
16 Oh God, Please Tell Us He Cropped in That Background
Nothing about this looks real, for about a dozen different reasons. Obviously no human would suspend himself by his fingertips at what looks like 2,000 feet off the ground. And in general the cityscape below him looks like a bad CGI effect. For all the realism this guy achieved, he might as well have cropped himself into a photo of outer space.
But if you're scared of heights, get ready for your palms to start sweating: This is an undoctored photo of a real stunt, done with no safety harness, performed by a real idiot. He is a Ukrainian man who goes by the name Mustang Wanted, and if you want to see him taunt death in video form, have at it:
He doesn't reveal anything else about his identity or his motivation, but from the information available to us, we're going to assume he's trying to save up to buy a Mustang.
