Things That Exist In One Place, Period

Cracked pays people to make smart memes. Visit the Photoplasty and Pictofacts Workshop to get in on it.

The world is getting smaller, and thanks to the internet it's pretty easy to get your hands on anything, no matter where you are. But there are a few holdouts. Some naturally-occuring things can still only be found in one small, specific spot.

Our thanks to Kalli, who can only be found here on Cracked, for suggesting this contest.
