Humans have always been ready for conducting experiments, but what happens when people cross the extra limit for conducting experiments which may prove fatal for people and our planet. Here we have assembled a list of 10 most dangerous, most terrifying experiments in the World history.

1. Controlling the Mind

The idea of mind control is a pretty appalling idea in itself. And no, this isn’t science fiction but reality. Jose Delgado a Spanish professor developed a technique for mind controlling. What he did was the first invented a “stimoceiver” and planted it on animal’s brain. It was operated by a remote control which was used to electrically stimulate the different regions of the animal’s brain. If sources are to be believed it is said that variety of results were produced such as movement of limbs, involuntary movement of different parts of the animal’s body. He produced more drastic results later on other animals.

2. Experiments on Newborns

In the 1960s, researchers at the University of California began an experiment to study changes in blood pressure and blood flow. The researchers used 113 newborns ranging in age from one hour to three days old as test subjects. In one experiment, a catheter was inserted through the umbilical arteries and into the aorta. The newborn’s feet were then immersed in ice water for the purpose of testing aortic pressure. In another experiment, up to 50 newborns were individually strapped onto a circumcision board, then tilted so that their blood rushed to their head and their blood pressure could be monitored.

3. Live Again

Could anyone in the world make dead live again? The answer is someone tried to do this, a doctor by the name of Robert E. Cornish. He tried to raise the dead back by first placing then on a see-saw so that the blood would keep moving in them and injected with anti-coagulants and epinephrine. His experiments failed as none of them were able to come back to life. Although he managed to revive only two dogs but they were clinically put to dead later. This is one of the most horrifying experiments conducted in history.

4. Unit 731

From 1937 to 1945, the imperial Japanese Army developed a covert biological and chemical warfare research experiment called Unit 731. Based in the large city of Harbin, Unit 731 was responsible for some of the most atrocious war crimes in history. Chinese and Russian subjects men, women, children, infants, the elderly, and pregnant women were subjected to experiments which included the removal of organs from a live body, amputation for the study of blood loss, germ warfare attacks, and weapons testing. Some prisoners even had their stomachs surgically removed and their esophagus reattached to the intestines. Many of the scientists involved in Unit 731 rose to prominent careers in politics, academia, business, and medicine.

5. Starfish Prime

United States as we all know is a country that just wants to do experiments. On July 9, 1962, United States of America denoted nuclear weapons outside of the earth’s magnetic field. About 1.4 megatons of TNT were used. The aftermath of the experiment was that the explosion altered with the earth’s magnetic field. It generated a huge amount of pulse very far then the United States of America had anticipated. What it did was it disabled the street lights in parts of Hawaii. It also led to disruption of some of the communication systems. The thing was unusual amount of radiations could have destroyed the currents that make the earth stable. The Starfish Prime came at number four in the list of most terrifying experiments in history.

6. The Soviet Poison Laboratories

Beginning in 1921 and continuing for most of the 21st century, the Soviet Union employed poison laboratories known as Laboratory 1, Laboratory 12, and Kamera as covert research facilities of the secret police agencies. Prisoners from the Gulags were exposed to a number of deadly poisons, the purpose of which was to find a tasteless, odorless chemical that could not be detected post mortem. Tested poisons included mustard gas, ricin, digitoxin, and curare, among others. Men and women of varying ages and physical conditions were brought to the laboratories and given the poisons as “medication,” or part of a meal or drink.

7. Hadron Collider

Ever heard of “Large Hadron Collider”? It’s the world’s most powerful particle collider. It is located at an underground facility in Switzerland. It is used in collision of protons, electrons and other sub-atomic particles at very high speeds. This was to done so as to learn more about the particle physics and high-energy physics. It lies in a tunnel of about 27 kilometers in circumference. It’s a high-level project which is being monitored by more than 10,000 scientists from different parts of the world. Many scientists believe that the collider could generate a black hole which in turn could destroy the earth or any other dangerous phenomena could occur because of it. Pretty scary, right?

8. Human Experimentation in North Korea

Several North Korean defectors have described witnessing disturbing cases of human experimentation. In one alleged experiment, 50 healthy women prisoners were given poisoned cabbage leaves all 50 women were dead within 20 minutes. Other described experiments include the practice of surgery on prisoners without anesthesia, purposeful starvation, beating prisoners over the head before using the zombie-like victims for target practice, and chambers in which whole families are murdered with suffocation gas. It is said that each month, a black van known as “the crow” collects 40-50 people from a camp and takes them to an known location for experiments.

9. Russian Borehole

You may be thinking whether digging a borehole really an experiment? Not when it’s been dug at about 40,000 ft. It started on 24th May 1970 using various sophisticated equipment’s. The attempt was to dig as much far into the earth’s crust .Till now it is the deepest artificial point on earth. It was a site of various geophysical studies. The experiment could have led to shift in the earth’s tectonic plate which in turn could have led to earthquakes and other calamities.

10. Nazi Human Experimentation

Over the course of the Third Reich and the Holocaust, Nazi Germany conducted a series of medical experiments on Jews, POWs, Romani, and other persecuted groups. The experiments were conducted in concentration camps, and in most cases resulted in death, disfigurement, or permanent disability. Especially disturbing experiments included attempts to genetically manipulate twins; bone, muscle, and nerve transplantation; exposure to diseases and chemical gasses; sterilization, and anything else the infamous Nazi doctors could think up. After the war, these crimes were tried as part of the Nuremberg Trial and ultimately led to the development of the Nuremberg Code of medical ethics.

At present, Democracy is being practiced in many countries around the world. The people get to choose who is to lead the government and who their representatives in parliament will be. But that has not always been the case in the past where subjects were subjected to dictatorial rule. Some nations are still under dictators at present and they suffer under these tyrants. Dictatorship can be defined as a form of governance whereby a country or a state is ruled by one person or a small group of people who exercise absolute power over their subjects.

Let's take a look at top 10 Evil dictators in the World history:

1. Adolf Hitler, Germany

Adolf Hitler was the leader of the Nazi Party. He was the absolute dictator of Germany from 1934 to 1945. He gained support by promoting values like German nationalism and anti-semitism. Hitler was appointed chancellor in 1933 and began the Third Reich. Hitler was power hungry as all hell, hated the shit out of Jews (and others), and wanted hegemony in Europe. The militarization that was needed to complete such a lofty goal led to the outbreak of World War II. Nazi forces engaged in the systematic murder of as many as 17 million civilians, an estimated six million of whom were Jews, and 1.5 million Romanies.

2. Kim Jong-il, North Korea

Kim Jong-il was a modern day dictator. He arrested anyone who opposed his workers party. He would lock them in labor camps where he would overwork them and starve them to death. He demanded total loyalty from his citizens and even demand that they refer to him as the Supreme Leader of North Korea. Those who failed to do so were executed or thrown into the labor camps. He was so obsessed with military warfare that he would commit all government finances into the military. This paralyzed other departments such as healthcare and it was the citizens who suffered the most.

3. Saddam Hussein, Iraq

One of the most well-known leaders of the 21st century, Saddam Hussein instituted mass genocide against the Kurds, Shabaks, Assyrians, Madeans, and other ethnic groups that rebelled against his brutal regime. An estimated 2 million people died at his hand. He used mustard and nerve gas against the Kurdish town of Halabja, a population of 45,000, killing between 3,200 – 5,000 people. He used more chemical weapons against the Kurds during a genocidal campaign, killing between 50,000 and 100,000 Kurdish men, women, and children. No one was safe from imprisonment and torture. He often had the torture of his victims recorded and then replayed during dinner for his amusement.

4. Muammar Gaddafi, Libya

He ruled Libya for over 42 years until his death in 2011. During this time he used Libya’s oil wealth to enrich himself and his close family. He ruled high-handedly such very few dared oppose his rule. Peaceful protesters were often killed by his military officials. This continued until 2011 when the Arabian Revolution was in full swing. This motivated the Libyans to take to the street in armed protest until they were able to kill one of the meanest dictators of our time.

5. Idi Amin Dada, Uganda

Even though Idi Amin Dada ruled Uganda for only eight years from 1971 to 1979, he took full advantage of his time in command to put his wrath on display. Roughly half a million people lost their lives due to extrajudicial killings and genocide during this time. His rule was characterized by massive human rights violations, political assassinations and extrajudicial killings. Anyone who dared oppose his rule was executed mostly without due process. He was so greedy that he would even take the wives of other people and make them his own. Not only was he evil and malicious but he was also a cannibal. He would cut pieces of flesh from those he has killed and eat then raw.

6. Bashar Al Assad, Syria

Bashar al-Assad is the incumbent President of Syria despite calls both locally and abroad for him to step down. By holding onto power he is responsible for the civil crisis currently experienced in Syria. His regime is ruthless and merciless in its efforts to hold onto power. They have even resorted to killing children as young as 2 years old so as to scare anyone who opposes his government. For all these atrocities is therefore one of the Evil dictator in the World history.

7. Joseph Stalin, USSR

Jozef Stalin was the first Secretary of the Communist Party from 1922 – 1953. He became the leader of Soviet Union after Lenin died in 1924, and launched government programs that would make the country more progressive. His attempt to move to the new economy, however, led to the starvation of nearly 10 million people. With many intellectuals and activists not in favor of his leadership, Stalin also launched the “Great Purge”, killing every person who opposed him and his ideals.

8. Benito Mussolini, Italy

He was the ruler of Italy during the Second World War. He was an extreme socialist and exhibited totalitarian rule on Italians by making Italy a one party state. He ruled Italy with an iron fist but sadly enough the Italians still followed him. He collaborated with Nazi Germany during World War II and he was eventually killed in 1945.

9. Robert Mugabe, Zimbabwe

President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe is said to have risen to power via electoral deception and fearmongering. There was even one election where he did not receive any votes in a certain province so he orchestrated the killing of over 20,000 civilians by fabricating stories of rebellion and treason. During his time in office over 3.1 million Zimbabweans lost their homes, jobs, and livelihood due to his “land reform program” aka bulldozing any village that voices dissent.

10. Fidel Castro, Cuba

Fidel Castro is the former Head of State of Cuba who served as president from 1976 up to 2008 when he handed the reins of power to his brother Raul Castro. He treated Cuba like his personal farm yard by assigning himself all the constitutional powers of governance. By denying the Cubans the right to elect the leaders of their choice, Fidel Castro makes it into the list of the Top 10 Evil dictators in the World history. His administration was responsible for countless cases of human rights violation and the mass exodus of over one million Cubans during the Cuban Exile. His stance on communism impoverished Cuba and that was the major reason behind the Mass Exodus.

Nature is known for its extremes. Not every animal is as cuddly as a giant panda or as cute as a teddy dog; some creatures are just plain bad looking – ugly, to be honest. Most people will not even give those extremely weird and ugly animals a second look. But every one of them has its natural role to fulfill with its specifically designed organisms.

Let's take a look at the 10 Most Weird looking Animals in the World:

1. Blob Fish

The Blob Fish looks more like a cartoon character than a fish. This little guy has a gloomy face, so it is often referred to as the "most sorrowful fish in the world." It has very few muscles and moves very slowly, almost floating like a jelly fish. The fish usually waits on the bottom of the ocean for food passing by. It lives at depths between 600-1,200 meters (2,000-3,900 feet) off the coasts of mainland Australia and Tasmania, but due to the deep-sea fishing and bottom trawling, it is currently facing extinction.

2. Red-lipped Batfish

These odd fish are generally found around the Galapagos Islands and near Peru. Divers may meet this fish at depths greater than 100 feet, but they are rare. Scientists judge that the reason they have the bright red pucker of the species is to attract the opposite gender. The maximum length of the red-lipped batfish is about 40 cm long.

3. Naked Mole Rat

The naked Mole Rat is native to some parts of East Africa. They spend most of their lives underground and are well adapted to this underground environment. With most of their skin exposed, they lack sweat glands and subcutaneous fat. These ugly guys use their giant, protruding teeth and jaws to dig extensive holes in the ground. The underground parts of plants serve as their food. They live in colonies like bees and have one queen who is responsible for all reproduction.

4. Monkfish

Monkfish has profoundly ugly looks. For many years, people did not like to eat it because of its weird facial features, but chefs realized that its appearance doesn’t matter if it good taste. Monkfish have giant heads, and their heads are filled with plenty of razor-like teeth. It’s found in the coastal Atlantic area and the size ranges up to about three feet.

5. Alligator Snapping Turtle

This is definitely a creature that you do not want to insult. The Alligator Snapping Turtle is the oldest still-existing reptile around and one of the largest freshwater turtles in the world. It is found primarily in the waters of the southeastern United States. This big guy is quiet most of the time, but bites when threatened. The great strength of its bite can easily break a human finger. Equipped not only with a ferocious mouth, the turtle also has three rows of spikes on its back.

6. Star Nosed Mole

This animal is weird because of its ugly star-shaped nose. It have the most unique noses in the animal world. It spends most of its time in water however it also ventures above ground consistently to feed and often takes departure to a network of infinite tunnels. Star Nosed Moles are found in low wet areas of eastern Canada and the northeastern United States.

7. Chinese Crested Dog

The Chinese Crested Dog is one of a few types of hairless dogs in the world. It looks like a toy dog and normally measures less than 33cm in height. Miss Ellie, a small bug-eyed Chinese Crested Dog, won the 2009 "World's Ugliest Dog Contest" at the Sonoma-Marin Fair in Petaluma, California. She also won Animal Planet's the "World's Ugliest Dog" contest that same year.

8. Turkey Vulture

The worst thing about Turkey Vultures is their facial features, which only a mother could adore. Its among the ugliest animals on our planet. When you look at those knife-like eyes, their bald head and wrinkled neck is enough to make you flinch. These birds travel thermals in the sky and use their sharp sense of smell to find fresh corpses. It flies low to the ground to pick up the smell of dead creatures.

9. Philippine Tarsier

Living in the Philippines, the Philippine Tarsier can fit in the palm of your hand. It measures up to a mere 15 cm (6 inches), making it one of the smallest primates in the world. Its big eyes and friendly face make it sweet, albeit an oddly kind of cute. Its bulging eyes are even bigger than its brain. The hands and legs of this little beggar resemble human limbs and they can leap as high as 3.3 meters (10 feet). Coming into the world some 45 million years ago, the tarsier has now become an endangered species.

10. Proboscis Monkey

This long-nosed monkey is found in the South East Asian island of Borneo. Its obtrude nose makes this rare living thing easily identifiable. These monkeys are born with a blue face and a small nose. The face color changes and the nose become bigger and bigger making them look uglier. These Proboscis Monkeys survive mainly on leaves, seeds, and raw fruits, but they sometimes eat insects too. For more than 40 years, Proboscis Monkeys populations have dropped. They are presently protected and listed among endangered species.

The cars that everyday people see and drive look very similar to each other. A bulky box on four wheels is exactly what most of us get. But if you love cars which are out of ordinary, few cars of this list might be your dream. These 10 cars certainly broke all the molds. Have a look at some of the most weird looking cars ever made.

1. 1970 Ferrari (Pininfarina) 512 S Modulo

Design firm Pininfarina has produced more famous works, but the Ferrari 512 S Modulo car, which it created for the 1970 Geneva Motor Show, didn’t aim for beauty. Designer Paolo Martin put the bizarre body on the chassis of the Ferrari 512S race car.

2. 1955 Chrysler (Ghia) Streamline X "Gilda"

Some of might say that this is a coolest car ever made, but, we say it is the weirdest vehicle ever created. This car seems to be inspired by some kind of spaceship, and one can tell that there must have a wacky inspiration behind. However, developers of the car designed it to achieve better aerodynamics. But the design never caught up, hence, this car landed on this list as one of the weirdest cars of all time.

3. 1953 General Motors Firebird 1 XP-21

To describe today's supercars, we fall back on likening the Koenigseggs and Paganis of the world to jet fighters. The 1953 General Motors Firebird I XP-21 was an actual jet fighter, with four wheels, a tail fin, and a bubble cockpit. The turbine engine spun at up to 26,000 rpm to generate a whopping (for the time) 370 horsepower.

4. 1948 Tasco

Tasco is one of the oddest vehicle human brain has come up. There are plenty of people who still love it, but they are hardcore lovers of classic cars. However, for the rest of us Tasco is a weird looking vehicle. Tasco was a prototype for a post-WWII American sports car and featured airplane inspired controls, designed by Gordon Buehrig, it was also the first car in the world with a T-top roof.

5. 1932 Ford Speedster

The 1932 Ford Speedster, packing a flathead V-8 engine, came with a starter button, decades before the feature became standard automotive fare. The low, long roadster was the brainchild of Henry’s son Edsel Ford and designer Eugene Gregorie.

6. 1965 Peel P50

We must admit that this car is kinda cute. The Peel P50 was a three-wheeled micro-car which was originally manufactured by Peel company from 1962 to 1965. It holds Guinness World Records of the smallest production car ever made. But we think it is also one of the most weird looking cars ever designed.

7. 1942 Oeuf electrique

The 1942 Oeuf électrique, or electric egg, had three wheels and ran on batteries decades after gasoline became the dominant way to power cars, and decades before Elon Musk decided to make electricity cool again. Its designer, Parisian Paul Arzens, worked as a painter and designed railway locomotives before moving on to cars. The bubble is made of hand-formed aluminum and curved Plexiglass, a novel material at the time.

8. 1936 Stout Scarab

Stout Scarab was designed by William Bushnell Stout in 1932. Marked as the world’s first minivan, this traveling vehicle was envisioned by its creator to be an office on wheels. Unlike other cars of that era, Stout Scarab features a small nose and a long wheelbase to maximize the accessible space. But, this weird yet amazing vehicle didn’t go to mass production, only about a dozen cars were made and up to five Scarabs are reported to survive today.

9. 1935 Bugatti Type 57S Competition Coupe Aerolithe

The original example of the 1935 Bugatti Type 57S Compétition Coupé Aerolithe, which debuted at the Paris Auto Show in 1935, was lost after the unveiling — the popular explanation is that Bugatti disassembled it for parts to make the Type 57 production car that followed. The model on display is a recreation produced in 2007, based on recorded specs, photographs, and an oil painting by a Bugatti engineer.

10. 1947 Norman Timbs Special

Norman E. Timbs was an influential engineer during 1940s who worked with Tucker automobiles. At that time, he took a project in his hands that would take over 3 years to get completed. The target was to build a vehicle which would be later known as Norman Timbs special. This car is one of the more elegant, streamlined and swooping custom cars ever created. The long front nose and slimmed down design without doors of any kind, make it one of most weird looking cars ever created.

When it comes to design, it’s inevitable that, along with some stellar results, there are gonna be some…not-so-stellar results. The mobile world is no exception to this rule. So we took a look into the history of and rounded up the strangest and sometimes outright horrible cell phone designs we could find.

Let's take a look at 10 most weird looking Cell Phones you have ever seen:

1. The Golden Buddha Phone (2009)

This wacky phone is one of the most expensive phones developed in China. It sports a piece of real jade, pearl powder lacquer and a 24 karat gold plating that makes it the most expensive cellphone in China, at $1,750, though we’re still unsure who would want that amount of money for this weird product. This holy phone wins the race of being the most unique, weirdest and perhaps the most useless phone ever made.

2. Nokia 7280 (2004)

Conversely, the Nokia 7280 was seen as fashionable, but it faced its own challenges. The lipstick-shaped phone didn’t include a number pad or touchscreen, instead relying on a wheel for all input. This made texting and writing numbers an absolute pain, making it a better choice for calls and MP3s than anything to do with words. Still, the phone was well-regarded and even won a design award in 2004.

3. Haier P7 Pen Phone (2004)

Is there anybody who wants a phone that has the capabilities of writing on paper? There you have it, the Haier pen phone. This pen is little bit different than others because, it can be used to make calls, send texts and do anything that an standard cell phone does. P7 Pen Phone may not he the most successful phone ever made, but surely is one of the most peculiar one.

4. Samsung Serene (2005)

The phone came with an unusual jewellery box design, designed by Bang & Olufsen. The circular keypad was a pain to use (a common flaw in this list), and despite a helping mechanism the phone took some time to open. The battery and SIM card required a screwdriver to access, and the camera was mounted on the side, which made lining up photos difficult. Despite its shortcomings, the Serene was a memorable smartphone design.

5. Monohm Runcible (2015)

The premise is to develop a smartphone that resembles centuries old pocket watches. This circular shaped phone has a display in front, a camera on the back and other necessary features for today’s consumers. The smartphone sure does look unique and beautiful, but can also be considered one of wackiest phone of all time.

6. Nokia N-Gage (2003)

The Nokia N-Gage is well remembered by teens of the 90s as an incredibly hyped but ultimately disastrous gaming-focused phone. The phone-style buttons were awful for gaming, and the bulk and extra buttons required for gaming made it a clunker of a phone. The phone quickly garnered a bad reputation amongst gamers, and despite an effective redesign the platform was abandoned by Nokia two years and 50 games later.

7. Samsung Juke (2007)

As the name suggests the phone was targeted to music lovers. It has support for wide range of music formats, and 2GB storage for music. But the most interesting part of it has to be the design, which is both unique and weird. It has the functionality to rotate the display which expose the keypad. For its time it was a genuine attempt to satisfy the needs of music lovers, but failed hard design wise.

8. Nokia 7600 (2003)

The Nokia 7600 takes weird to the next level with a strange teardrop shape, with the display centred within and buttons surrounding. The handset was one of the first from Nokia to feature 3G connectivity. The phone was light, but the weird button arrangement required two hands for most tasks, and the design was never revisited.

9. BlackBerry Passport (2014)

BlackBerry Passport was an attempt to serve new wine in old bottle. It is primarily made for people looking to buy old school BlackBerry phone with latest hardware specifications. BlackBerry successfully pulled off that challenge with this unique phone. However, it is the most weird looking smartphone today available in the market.

10. Motorola V70 (2002)

The Motorola V70 has an odd rotary design, with the keypad hidden underneath a cover that rotates 180 degrees around the display dial. The look was iconic, but the movement took some time and decreased the phone’s reliability too. Still, the slim design made it a popular choice when its price reached reasonable levels.
