Who says radioactive waste can't be beautiful? The "Siberian Maldives" is a toxic lake of turquoise water. Due to hazardous toxic waste runoff from a local power plant, the waters have an eerie glow. But that doesn't stop Russians from flocking to take pictures in front of it. You might think you know everything there is to know about Game of Thrones, but did you know the dragons aren't actually dragons? They're wyverns! Speaking of Hollywood, Warner Bros., who had the rights to make 'Home Alone,' decided they didn't want to spend $14 million on it and canceled production. 21st Century Fox took over and turns out, people really wanted to see Macaulay Culkin being home ... alone. So if you're ever feeling down because your favorite show got cancelled or a movie isn't getting made, just remember that sometimes things work out for the best in ways we never could've expected!
