TOP-4 places on our planet with strange laws of physics


The earth is full of places where generally accepted laws do not apply - the so-called anomalous zones, which completely manage without the laws of gravity and physics. When familiarizing with these places, the question arises: how does this work in general?

Hanging rock in Myanmar

The Golden Stone is a granite boulder weighing many tons and balancing on the Chaittiyo mountain peak in Myanmar. The stone shocks people: it balances in the wind, and all the eyewitnesses have the feeling that it is about to fall off, but this has been happening for 2500 thousand years, and the Golden Stone is balancing everything ...

The boulder is not fixed in any way, you can drag a rope under it. For his brave challenge to Earth's gravity, the locals covered the stone with gold leaf. There are similar balancing boulders in the USA, India and in Ergaki, Krasnoyarsk Territory.

One of the hanging stones still lost to gravity and collapsed: it happened in Argentina. Tourists are so accustomed to the stone that the locals decided not to upset them - they installed a plastic copy.

The road at the foot of Mount Aragats in Armenia

At first glance, it seems that the river under Mount Aragats is straight, but if you let the bottle go, it will roll down, and if you ride a bike off the mountain itself, it will go up, not down. This can be explained simply: as the famous character said, "sleight of hand and no fraud". There is no violation of the laws of physics: the road at the foot of the mountain is an optical illusion formed due to the features of the relief.

Such optical illusions are found everywhere: in Greece, Canada and Russia - at the 20th kilometer of the Alushta-Feodosia highway.

Reverse waterfalls

In Hawaii, Australia and England there are waterfalls, the water in which does not flow down, but rises up. At first it seems like magic, but the secret is simple - it lies in the air masses that lift the water in the opposite direction. The stronger the wind, the higher the water rises. Its speed at the time of ascent can reach 15-20 meters per second.

Anomalous zone of the Preiser

Not far from Santa Cruz, California, there is an anomalous place where no one has heard of physics: the compass does not work, objects launched on an inclined plane return, and people physically experience a lack of gravity and disruption in the functioning of the vestibular apparatus. This place is George Preiser's hut.

There are 2 versions of the explanation of what is happening: the first - rational - says that the magnetic field is disturbed here, the second - irrational - convinces that there is a portal to another reality here.

In fact, there is no secret: all "oddities" are a carefully planned advertising campaign, all anomalies are only optical illusions. All buildings are built at an angle of 18 degrees - invisible to the eye, but capable of making noise and deceiving gravity.
