Now that nearly everyone has a cell phone, not much happens that isn’t captured in a photo or video. Each of these amazing pictures captures the moment just before or after something went horribly wrong. Talk about being in the right place at the wrong time.

Jenga with shipping containers

Looking at this picture, you might assume these containers were stacked too high or improperly secured. The truth is, containers carrying too much weight can cause instability and, sometimes, the toppling of cargo overboard. Amazingly, it wasn’t until 2016 that the International Maritime Organization (IMO) amended the Safety of Life at Sea Convention (SOLAS) to require that the declared weight of shipping containers be verified before loading onto ships.

I’m outta here!

This looks like an accident, and the crash, of course, is. But the launching of the pilot into the air is totally intentional, and thanks to a device most military planes have: an ejection seat. To activate the seat, the pilot pulls a lever between his legs. Once in the air, and a safe distance from the aircraft, a parachute opens and the pilot floats to safety.

I don’t what’s scarier – the clowns or whatever that guys got on his baking rack. What that is anyway?

It’s so unfair. One minute you’re going to clown college to become an entertainer, the personification of fun; and the next, people are calling you “creepy.” Meanwhile, bakers are considered perfecyly harmless – even as they continue to peddle things like fruiitcake and anisette biscotti.

Rollin’…rollin’…rollin’ on a river…

Study the faces of the women in the boat, and you’ll see surprise, fear and amusement. The cyclist’s face is inscrutable, which is too bad. It would be great to know what he was thinking.

Hope it was worth it!

Everbody’s done this – the looking part, I mean. It’s human nature. However, it would be nice to think few have been quite so absorbed in the sight they beheld as the guy in this picture. Imagine him explaining his black eye to his wife.

Why is the dude in the back laughing???

Sting rays don’t normally attack people, except in defense when they’re stepped on. Certain types of rays do, however, leap through the air. Most likely, the ray in this picture meant no harm to the woman he landed on. Scientists speculate rays jumpt to communicate, attract a mate, shake off parasites and or have fun – like the guy behind her.

Macho macho man

In Florida, it’s a third-degree felony to injure or kill an alligator. Police do occasionally shoot them, but these incidents are throughly investigated to make sure the officer’s action was justified. The police officer in this photo was almost certainly bluffing, and the alligator looks like he knows it!

Moby duck! Or, better yet, drive away really fast!

The average whale watching trip includes a lot more watching than whales. In fact, it’s not uncommon to take such a voyage and not see a single whale. The question is: which would you rather?

Elephants never forget? These people are gonna never forget!

Unfortunately, the world’s largest mammals have been known to attack cars. Elephants are most aggressive during musth, when their testosterone levels are at their highest. Musth most frequently occurs in winter, so plan your safaris accordingly.

This sucks.

They say the best thing to do if an octopus latches onto you (and you’d rather it didn’t) is to touch its mantle. The mantle is the part many think of as the head of the octopus. These cephalopods are very protective of this part of their anatomy and will often let go of what they’re grasping when it is touched. Hopefully, the man in this picture knew this.

Don’t bite my head off!

This is no joke. Camels bite and the injuries they cause can be very serious. Considering their height, maybe it’s no surprise that they often target people’s heads. Beware!

Just another day on the New York subway

According to Big Apple locals, eating and drinking on the sobway is considered bad manners. Pole dancing, on the other hand…totally fine.

Ignorance is bliss

I love how Sunglasses and the kid in the front row don’t even seem to notice the baseball bat flying in their direction.

I’m just guessing this guy has a beer in his hand. Probably his 20th of the night.

As if his choice of costume weren’t strong enough evidence of his terrible judgement…

Whatever you do, don’t let go of you giant Harry Potter wand, or whatever the h*ll that is…

Judging by the rider’s perfect “sitting” posture, this photo was taken less than a second after her hind quarters left the saddle. So, to be fair, she hasn’t had time to think.

There are bad ideas…and then there are really bad ideas…

Parents are always telling their kids to be careful. But are they really the ones that need supervising? Here’s a scary thought: these guys may even be parents themselves!

Cats will be cats, won’t they?

Ever wonder why cats seem to like being in spaces that are explicitly not designed for them? Especially places that are too small to accommodate them without causing an accident like the one about to happen here? Cats feel more secure in confined spaces. It’s also in their nature to hide while watching their prey. Not that knocking a bunch of glass stuff off a shelf is a brilliant way to go undetected…

Hmmm.

Did this guy doubt his skill with a saw? It’s hard to imagine any other reason for the placement of his ladder.

Goodness gracious, great balls of fur!

Who needs superheroes when we’ve got cats?

The difference between mothers and fathers

Mom’s mortified. Dad’s having the time of his life. The boy in the middle?

It’s not nice to point.

This is what is known as a nature fail.

Why You (Should) Need a License to Drive

Oh, who are we kidding? There are probably hundred of pictures out there of licensed drivers doing even sillier things on ATVs.

Ice ice baby

Good thing children’s bones are much more flexible than those of adults. There may have been a few tears shed, but then it was right back to business: getting to that playground!
