Have you ever built a tower of Legos? A treehouse? Have you ever put a bicycle together? Building something from the ground up is incredibly difficult whether it is a piece of furniture, a bicycle or a home. Following instructions are often not enough as it takes real ingenuity to understand how everything should fit together. Think back to your Lego tower or treehouse, bicycle or something else. Was your project sturdy and functional? Did you have any missing parts?

It’s no wonder, then, why structures like the Egyptian Pyramids, the Leaning Tower of Pisa and the Eiffel Tower are considered architectural wonders. Aside from their beauty, these masterpieces defy the odds of construction by making it look effortless and easy.

But, despite such beautiful wonders, construction doesn’t always go as planned. As engineers design and contractors build, mistakes happen that usually result in pointed fingers and widespread blame. Most of the time, it’s a missed detail that can easily be fixed but, sometimes, it’s a huge error that drastically effects the project.

Whenever a critical mistake happens, hilariously bad results can occur, although no one laughs when it happens! What, then, are the biggest construction screw ups of all time? Here are the top 28 botched construction jobs that have left builders constructing new resumes for their unavoidable job hunt!

In a world of selfies and duck faces, pouty lips and group photos, photography is simply part of our daily lives thanks to smart phones and modern technology. But, this wasn’t always the case. In fact, the oldest photograph ever recorded dates back to 1840 by Joseph Draper of New York City and was not, by any means, a duck-faced selfie. Surprisingly enough, it wasn’t until the 1950s with the advancement of technology that photography even became popular.

Think for a moment and consider the entire world of events that took place between the 1840s and 1950s: The Civil War, World War I and II, and the Great Depression, for example. These events are widely remembered but were seldom photographed, making the few and extremely rare black and white images of the era some of the most iconic photographs of all time.

But, what if these black and white photos were transformed into exquisitely colorful masterpieces? Take a look at these 18 iconic images that have been revitalized to resemble the true historic events as seen through the eyes of the storied photographers who captured their breathtaking beauty.

Among every age group you and old alike, professional wrestling has always been the most popular faux sport in the world. While the outcomes in professional wrestling may be predetermined, there is still a lot of athleticism involved in the aerial maneuvers and various moves that are performed. While the competitors in wrestling are meant to simulate receiving injuries from their opponents, many of the on-screen injuries are more real than fantasy; these injuries can take years off of an athlete’s life span, and due to this (and other reasons), there have been many pro wrestlers that have unfortunately met their death at a young age.

Steroids have played a major role in some of these premature deaths, but in order to maintain their image, and receive a sizable pay check, these athletes will go to any lengths to stay relevant. It’s no shock that steroids come with a long list of health problems, but until recently they weren’t banned in professional wrestling. But which wrestling superstar’s sudden deaths shocked us the most? Here are the top 16 young wrestlers, who suddenly passed away and left us shocked and mourning. All of these performers unfortunately passed away before the age of 50, and the list does not include Chris Benoit: who took his own life after murdering his wife and son.
