We all know that books are made of paper, but this person never knew that they’d find a sheet of Chinese music within the spine. Now they can learn a bit of Chinese while enjoying their favorite book.
Tree Within A Tree
Trees are beautiful, offer shade and other positive actors for the environment. But when a tree dies, it should be cut down to avoid an unforeseen accident. It’s best to cut it down safely otherwise it may fall onto your roof during a storm.
This man decided to cut the dead tree to avoid any possible future damage. But as he cut the tree he noticed something miraculous had happened. A new tree was actually growing within the dead tree.
When someone wants to describe a person that has different hidden aspects of the personality, they’re compared to onions because they’re said to have many layers. And that’s exactly what this person expected to find when they cut open this onion.
When they cut into this root vegetable, they didn’t find the usual uniform layers. What they found was a smaller onion within the onion. It doesn’t look too appetizing but maybe it tasted sweeter than the onion it was encased in.
There’s nothing better than sitting on your balcony overlooking your backyard or the neighborhood with a cold beverage after a long day at work. This guy was doing exactly that one afternoon when he heard an unexpected buzzing sound.
As he traced where the sound was coming from he realized it was coming from inside the railing. As he reached for the railing to get a better look, it snapped open as wasps buzzed their way out.
From The Horse’s Tail
When people buy imitation products, they’re bound to find some irregularities and even defects with it. But when it comes to kids’ toys, buying knock-offs can be a big saving. Especially if your child is too small to notice the difference.
This parent opted to buy a knock-off My Little Pony for their child without realizing what lay within. When the toy broke, they discovered that the manufacturers had used a doll’s head as the pony’s tail. What else might be hidden inside your child’s toy?
In today’s world, people don’t use disposable batteries as often as they used to for everyday items. Things like tablets, smartphones, and fitness devices have built-in batteries that are rechargeable and most other things are electrical.
However, there are a few things that still use such batteries so it’s a good idea to have them on hand for emergencies. Everyone knows what an ordinary AAA or AA battery looks like but did you know that a 6-volt battery is actually made up of four smaller batteries?
Everyone knows that dinosaurs became extinct when an asteroid collided with the earth thousands of years ago. Or are they? That’s what scientists have been telling us for years but this photo may disprove that theory once and for all.
The last thing this driver expected to see that day was a ‘dinosaur’ being transported in the back of a horse trailer. Either dinosaurs still exist or someone was transporting an exact replica to a museum or some kind of expo.
A Big Heart
Dogs are very much like kids sometimes. They love to play with toys, especially soft toys, and if they squeak it’s even better. The only difference is that dogs are capable of ripping their soft toys to pieces when they play a little too rough.
This Cookie Monster was this golden retriever’s favorite toy. One day he chewed it so much that he literally ripped its heart out. Who knew that the Cookie Monster actually had a heart. A pretend heart was sewn inside the toy.
A Strong Rope
Most people think that a rope is made up solely of individual fibers being braided together to create a strong rope. So you can imagine how surprised this person was when they accidentally cut the rope and found this inside.
When the rope was cut, it revealed that the rope was in fact made of recycled diapers. The recycled diapers were covered by a layer of woven fabric to conceal it. Did you know that diapers were recyclable? Let’s hope they weren’t used before being recycled.
Power From Sand?
Mobile phones are very useful for staying in contact, especially for emergencies. But what happens if your battery life isn’t very long? Thankfully, power banks were invented for those instances when you’re nowhere near a power source and your battery is running low.
This person was curious and decided to open one up to see what it’s made of. The last thing he expected to find was sand. Now we’ve learned that sand is conductive and holds the charge within the power bank.
It’s really clever when people invent things that can be used for more than one purpose. Even if it wasn’t intended to be. Like this mouse pad. This guy had had this mousepad for a long time before he discovered what was hidden inside.
When it came apart at the seams it revealed an entire anime comic book hidden inside. So he took his lunch break early to get stuck in. Do you think he sewed the mousepad closed after he finished reading the comic?
Opals are semi-precious stones usually found in sedimentary rocks like claystone. Scientists say that it takes about five to six million years for opals to form. They’re also called moonstones because they’re said to have captured some moonlight in them.
It’s quite beautiful when it’s green and blue tones shimmers in the light. When someone found this fossilized shell, called an ammonite they cut it in half to see what was inside. But they didn’t expect to find rare Welo opals formed inside.
Rattle And Spray
Every can of spray paint has something inside that makes a rattling sound when you shake it. This is done in order to help mix the paint with the propellant so the paint can be pushed out into a fine mist.

There are many different types of rocks in the world and you can find them anywhere from mountains to the coastlines. Some rocks are more interesting than others, and some can even reveal some beauty. Like diamonds for example.

No Value For Your Money
Anyone that has an electronic device like a mobile phone or a tablet or iPad will know that they’re not very cheap, and neither are the accessories for it. Especially if you buy the original case for it. But what is it that you’re paying for?
Just because it’s more expensive it doesn’t mean that it’s better. This guy found out the hard way. He opened up the iPad case because it didn’t feel sturdy and saw it was made with recycled toothpaste boxes.
A Story To Tell
Those that enjoy the sport, hunt in densely wooded areas across the country during hunting season. But before they head out for the real thing, most hunters tend to do some target shooting to make sure their aim is on point.
During the off-season, this guy went into the woods to chop some wood. When they sawed down the logs to make firewood, he found a bullet lodged inside the trunk. These trees could sure tell a story about what goes on in the woods.
A Handy Lighter
Trying to light your grill with an ordinary lighter can be quite dangerous because your hand is so close to the flames. That’s why someone invented these lighters with long necks that can reach the flames much easier without putting you at risk.
But have you ever wondered how it works? This person opened up the long lighter because curiosity got the better of him and he was surprised to find a regular lighter inside. Apparently they used normal lighters because the company had a surplus.
Great Balls Of Bocce
Bocce is a ball sport closely related to boules. It involves a small ball called the pallino and eight larger balls. The aim of the game is to hit the pallino with your bigger bocce ball.
The team whose ball is closest to the pallino wins. These bocce balls are relatively heavy and can be made of wood, metal, or plastic. This person wanted to see what it was made of and smashed one with a sledgehammer to reveal billiard balls inside.
People that love freshly brewed coffee prefer to buy their own coffee beans and grind them at home. That’s why they invest in a good coffee grinder to ensure that they’re never out of coffee. What happens when the grinder doesn’t work though?

Most people practice brand loyalty when they find a brand that they’re happy with. But is their loyalty being reciprocated? People are even prepared to spend a little extra to remain loyal to a trustworthy brand.

In the times when Kings, Queens, and Emperors ruled lands, people who tried to tamper with money, they were dealt with severely. Some tricksters would melt down silver coins, make coins out of tin, and plate those with the melted silver.
If caught, the punishment in most cases was death. But these days it is said that many countries doctor their own currency because of the huge demand. This quarter’s outer layer was peeled to reveal that it’s actually made of copper.
Rags To Punches
Sometimes clothes that are donated to goodwill aren’t in good condition. So what happens to those clothes? The items that are torn or stained usually become rags and those rags get used as stuffing.
Most people believe that punching bags are stuffed with something weighty like sand. This guy wanted to prove a point and discovered that they’re actually stuffed with clothes that were turned into rags. It’s compacted so tightly that when you punch the bag you’d never guess it was full of rags.
A family heirloom is an object, usually a piece of furniture or jewelry that is passed down from generation to generation. The item is usually stored away in a safe place to prevent it from getting damaged or lost.

This person thought they would do everyone a favor and reveal the secret to these snapping bands. They opened one up to reveal a metal measuring tape. Now it made sense. Whoever had thought of recycling measuring tapes was a genius.
A Shell Treasure
This young man and his father were busy doing some work in the garden and found a big boulder. It took up a lot of space and it didn’t add any aesthetic value to the garden so they broke up into smaller rocks.
They didn’t expect to find anything interesting when they smashed the rock into pieces. So they were shocked when they saw this massive fossil shell hidden within the rock. This fossil had been in the backyard all along and they had no idea.
Bean Boozled Tomatoes
Have you ever forgotten a vegetable or fruit at the back of the fridge only to find it has spoilt? This person thought they’d found the tomato just in time before it spoiled. But they got a big surprise when they cut it open.

Packing tape can be used for many different things as it’s extremely sticky and adhesive. Bet you’d never guess that it could be used as an insect catcher though? Well, this photo shows that in some cases, it can be.
This person bought a roll of ordinary packing tape and found a mosquito trapped within the layers. So maybe tape can be used at an insect catcher after all. We’re not sure how this happened but it’s pretty cool anyway.
A Hard Interior
When you see a soft toy, you’d expect it to be stuffed with soft materials such as sponge or cotton. So you can imagine how puzzled this pet owner was when his dog tore the stuffed toy open and revealed what was inside.
Instead of soft stuffing, they found a muscular looking rubber pig inside. It doesn’t make sense that manufacturers would put something like that inside a toy but then again maybe that was their way of repurposing that rubber pig.
This chess enthusiast had bought this giant chess piece at a yardsale as decoration for his home. They placed it in the lounge and suddenly realized that there was a cigarette smell in the room that was never there before. Where was it coming from?

When this guy accidentally dropped his car charger he discovered that there was an extra USB port hidden inside. For some reason, the manufacturers chose to conceal the second port. It turns out both ports work well so it was a good thing he dropped it.
A Chemistry Lesson
In high school, every student was expected to learn the periodic table to pass chemistry. You had to be able to identify every element, its symbol, and where it was on the table. Jeans like this would have been a huge help back then.
At least the youth of today will be able to take advantage of this. This denim manufacturer decided to help students out by incorporating the periodic table inside their jeans. We don’t encourage cheating, but this can certainly be helpful.
A Buddha Mummy
So far we’ve seen some pretty weird discoveries of things hidden inside other objects. But this is by far the most astonishing! This statue of a sitting Buddha seemed to be just like thousands of others ever made.
But when researchers decided to put the statue in an MRI machine, it revealed something they didn’t expect. Inside, was the remains of a 1,000-year-old monk. It seems they mummified his body after he died and then sculpted the statue around it.
Fresh From The Sea
Everyone knows that you’ll find the freshest seafood at restaurants located by the sea. And if you live by the sea, you’ll also have access to fresh seafood on a daily basis. So if you enjoy seafood then this is ideal for you.

When they took the bread out of the oven they had to take it out of the tin to cool. That’s when they discovered that they’d dropped their glasses inside the bread dough. At least they know that their glasses are oven proof.
A Natural Greenhouse
Greenhouses are structures built to mimic a certain climate to create the perfect condition for plants to grow. They’re man-made and vary in shape and sizes according to how much space you have available.
This photo shows how nature sometimes has a plan of its own. Without any human intervention, this discarded bottle housed a plant and it grew perfectly even while surrounded by dry, hard soil. This just shows that if you look hard enough you’ll find life among dry, barren land.

Vivid Bowling Balls
Ten-pin bowling is a great pastime for kids and adults alike. The ball needs to be considerably heavy in order to knock the pins down. Have you ever wondered why a bowling ball is so heavy? What is it made of?

In The Rough
In golfing terms, when they say that the ball has gone into the rough, it means that it has disappeared between the trees or it landed on high grass. Ideally, you should aim to land your ball on the fairway.
Here we can see how someone hit the ball so hard that it lodged itself in a tree trunk. If that’s not enough, the tree’s unique layers have formed the image of a hand holding the golf ball, which makes this photo even more interesting.
When you see big rocks and boulders you imagine them to look the same on the inside as they do on the outside. But that’s not always the case as we can see in this picture.
This person stumbled upon this unique looking rock when they were taking a walk along the rocky coastline. We’re not quite sure how this happened but it looks like the brown rock swallowed the grey rock. Maybe scientists will have a logical explanation for this.
Trees can live for hundreds of years and their bark can reveal many hidden secrets if you know how to read their markings. This photo is proof that this tree has experienced much in its life before it was chopped down.
