When you think about it, most of the great scientific and technical discoveries were made by accident. Our little experiments at home are unlikely to revolutionize research on artificial intelligence and cancer, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try. Sometimes one stumbles upon it completely by accident while walking through the square and discovering sand struck by lightning or observing a house covered with ice in winter. When these people accidentally created these science experiments, they were shocked at the results. This should make you want to pull out your old chemist’s kit and start experimenting again too. Keep reading this article to find out the fascinating things people have discovered by accident. Prepare to be amazed!
1. When You Grow A Pumpkin In A Silicone Mold
In the United States, people love to dig pumpkins into lanterns for Halloween. This person decided to go even further and grow a Frankenstein pumpkin. No need to waste time digging it. Just grow it directly in a mold with the right shape for this party.
There are silicone molds for anything and everything. You can use it to grow unique shaped pumpkins. Your house will be the real star of Halloween, no one will be able to compete with it. People will be gawking at your house all Halloween week.
Here is the super-cat with its murderous lasers which come out of its pads. He can hit anything with his lasers, so it’s best to avoid rubbing against him. We knew it was only a matter of time before the cats rebelled and took power. We didn’t think the end of humanity would come so quickly.
You remember that almost all toy stores used to sell them. Those plasma balls were so cool back then, although they lack a bit of finesse today. Fortunately our parents have always refused to buy us one.
3. When You Make A Light Up Spinning Toy Around Your Head
It looks like a scene straight out of a festival in the desert. All of these lights are eye-catching, but these sparks are somewhat dangerous. This person thought that tying glow sticks to burning steel wool and spinning it overhead would be a good idea.
We have the impression that he opens a portal to a new dimension and that the aliens will disembark to invade the planet. Inviting aliens to our planet might not be the idea of the century.
This is what happens when you put mirrors horizontally on a cabin in the desert. This creates the illusion of an invisible house with a roof and planks floating in the air. This technique was used for the first Star Wars movie to make Luke’s speeder appear to be flying above the ground.
We imagine that even the birds must have made a mistake and tried to fly through the house. It must be a job to keep all those mirrors shiny and clean in a place where the wind blows sand and dust all the time. In addition, is there not a risk that the mirrors act like a magnifying glass and cause a fire to start?
“My darling, you are resplendent! When a frog eats too many fireflies, they continue to glow and their light remains visible until they die. This frog should be making a harder skin. That way, we won’t see through it and we won’t feel sick to these poor fireflies!
Nature is fascinating, beautiful and cruel. We have the impression that this frog will soon explode like in a cartoon. Maybe it’s a security camera disguised as a frog so thieves won’t notice. She’s taking risks, this frog anyway. Because her predators won’t have a hard time noticing her in the dark.
6.What Happens When You Heat A Ball Before Putting It In Very Cold Water
Marbles are already interesting objects in their own right, but this person decided to make them even more interesting. She heated a marble over a flame and then put it in ice water. It feels like it’s about to explode.
We strongly advise against trying this experiment at home because the ball can explode and become very dangerous. This person was lucky and didn’t have an accident, but that’s really silly. The explosion could make a person blind.
We’ve all seen cold places in life, but not to this extent. The water doesn’t even seem to be water anymore, it is so completely frozen. We imagine that the water must have frozen incredibly quickly to achieve this result. Water created these giant crystals and creates these particular geometric shapes.
You feel like you can walk on it because it’s a lake of stone and no ice. We are cold just to see this image. Fortunately, the majority of us don’t live in such a freezing cold place.
This is typically the kind of photo that we stumble upon on the Internet and are delighted to find. When your supermarket has coconuts, it’s brown, round and hairy. Here, a person took the time to polish one and you can admire the result.
At first glance, we thought it was a chocolate egg. No one is used to seeing a coconut like this. Coconuts are not round but oval like eggs. It is so bright that you can see yourself through it. Is it easier to open now that it’s so smooth?
While walking on a beach after a storm, this photographer came across a strange and interesting sculpture created by nature when lightning struck the beach. We knew that lightning was attracted to water, but we didn’t know that it could hit the sand so hard that it left it as if petrified.
If you ran into that, would you take your legs around your neck? It feels like the sand is some kind of monster that has come alive. Looks like a superhero managed to beat him by trapping him in ice before he could take over the world.
10. What Happens When Winds Of 80km / h Hit A Lake In Winter
Michigan is known for its very harsh winters, and people who live on the shores of Lake Erie face particularly freezing temperatures. When a storm hit the lake area, winds of 80 km, hours carried spray that the terrible cold changed to a thick layer of ice on neighboring houses.
It is hoped for the owners of this house that they are not inside because they are very likely to get stuck with the doors completely frozen. It is not known how people can endure these harsh winters over and over again each year.
It looks like Elsa from Frozen has been there and used her powers to freeze this magnificent waterfall. It looks like a work of art worthy of the greatest museums. We want to make it our wallpaper so we can admire it every time we turn on the computer.
The temperature suddenly dropped and the waterfall froze quickly, giving the impression that everything had stopped in a second. It looks a bit like the kingdom of the white witch in the world of Narnia.
When wood is burnt with electricity, it seems to form trees on the wood. The high voltage creates these kinds of lightning that look like two drops of water like trees. We wouldn’t be as beautiful if we decided to do it voluntarily. That’s wonderful.
Looks like Chinese wood paintings done in black ink. These incredibly detailed unique works. We want to see this phenomenon happen slowly on video. It must be so relaxing.
13. Cabbage Starts To Bloom When You Leave It Too Long In The Fridge
This is what happens to cabbages when they are left in the fridge for too long. We forget it in a corner and it ends up sprouting and flowering. If left to grow, they will become a superb plant and give even more cabbage.
Looks so much more interesting than the vegetables you find in the supermarket. Cabbage is a vegetable that divides. Many people refuse to eat it, so they will agree to make decorations out of it.
Who remembers with nostalgia the funny experiences at school where you learned difficult concepts while having fun? This little experiment shows us what happens when you put M & Ms in water. We can make interesting deductions about force.
We are a little surprised that the barriers are so regular, but the demonstration is very successful. This kind of accidental experience is very nice and brings back so many good memories of school.
It was first believed to be a designer bag before realizing that it was actually a multi-colored car tire. When you drive in chalk drawings on a hot day, this is what your tires will look like. It’s not that bad as a decoration. It would be perfect for gay pride.
We don’t really know why and how it works, but we imagine that the chalk is so hot that it prints patterns on everything that touches it. Given all the colors present, we can imagine that this conductor passed over a magnificent rainbow.
16. When Lightning Falls On A Flag On A Golf Course
The last place you want to be during a thunderstorm is a swimming pool or a golf course. As you can see, lightning strikes the ground and spreads everywhere, so everyone around will be electrocuted.
Many accidents have taken place on golf courses during thunderstorms. People were severely injured when lightning struck. With such enormous open space on golf courses, golfers are particularly at the mercy of the weather.
Usually when you see wind turbines you see them moving, but you can’t see the air being stirred. On very foggy days, you can see the power of the turbines and how much air they are blowing. We can see the effect they create in the fog.

18. When Nature Resumes Its Rights – The Boat On The River
Many people want to be one with nature. Here, she completely transformed this house. These people wanted their home to be part of the nature that surrounds it and they succeeded perfectly.
Now their home is a floating garden in the heart of a beautiful forest. It is not known how it all started and the boat started to be covered with plants. This is what happens when we let nature take back its rights.
19. When You’re Not Planting Your Carrots Correctly
When you plant carrots, you have to be careful that they are well spaced. You have to leave a lot of room between each seed. If we don’t, we risk ending up with tangled carrots, like in this photo which reminds us a little of the mandrake from the Harry Potter films .
Looks like the carrots all gathered because they were scared of impending disaster. They might not have wanted to be pulled out of the earth to be cut up and eaten. No one wants to end up in a salad, that’s for sure.
There are a lot of people who love to wash their cars. It’s fun to sit in your car and watch the soap bubble and the rollers spinning. This is what colored soap looks like when it spills. It looks like a bit of cotton candy that has melted. It’s appetizing, even if you know it’s soap.
We want to roll in and mix all the colors. Looks a bit like unicorn tears. We imagine that they cry rainbows. We would like our tears to look like this too.
21. This Is What Happens When A Pipe Explodes Under A Basketball Court
It’s probably not very healthy, but you really want to play and swim on this basketball court. After a pipe exploded under the court, the court was completely flooded and the floor became corrugated.
The basketball court is probably destroyed, but at least it makes for an interesting photo. Difficult to say how much water is present, but another hour or two and we will not be far from transforming the land into an Olympic swimming pool.
22. What A Garden Table Looks Like After A Snowstorm
This is what a garden table looks like after a massive snowstorm. Water flowed through the small holes in the table and formed these magnificent stalactites. One has the impression of admiring a huge crystal chandelier, but it is indeed made of ice.
We want to shake it and see all these stalactites fallen to the ground. It would be a mess, but so satisfying. It’s almost a work of art. One could imagine designers taking inspiration from this photo to create candlesticks.
Usually people read tea leaves, but this person is able to read the future in coffee grounds. Looks like a painting of Bob Ross at the bottom of this mug with these adorable little trees. We wonder what we can predict when we see this cup.
This is probably not a bad omen. They certainly have a great adventure in the great outdoors awaiting them. Probably a hike. They should go on a trip to Canada or Alaska to see this kind of scenery and fulfill their destiny.
24. Proof that 8-year-old children’s hands are disgusting
We know that children’s hands are nests for germs and this photo is proof of that. When we did the experiment with the hand of an 8-year-old child, we saw all the bacteria that proliferated on it. The number of bacteria on this hand is impressive. We understand better that mothers always insist that children wash their hands.
How can you have so much bacteria on one hand? It’s normal to have germs on your hands, but this looks like a biological attack. Someone has to bathe this child in an infection control suit.
Have you ever wondered what would happen to raclette in a -70 ° fridge? Apparently, your cheese would become an icy sculpture saying enough to support the weight of the outdoor skillet. We knew that Antarctica was a cold place, but now we realize how much.
This scientist works at one of Antarctica’s most remote bases and when he’s not busy with his research, he tests how long it takes for food to freeze. The results are quite impressive and he posts them on his twitter account.
26. When You Forget A Bowl Of Beet Juice On The Countertop
We don’t know about you, but this vision makes us cold in the back. After making beetroot juice, this person left the bowl on the counter overnight and found that all wavy skin the next day. He is strongly advised not to eat it, but it makes for an interesting scientific experiment.
It happened because of a type of yeast in beets similar to what is used in kombucha. Don’t watch it for too long or you’ll be uncomfortable too. We just hope they get rid of it ASAP.
It’s almost a little Japanese-style miniature garden. When this person left their bike outside for a little too long, the inside of their saddle turned to foam. It is the beginning of a mini-forest. In most countries, when you leave your bike outside for that long, it gets stolen.
If you take a picture of this seat up close, people might think it is a real forest. We wonder if the owner of this bike has invested in a new bike or if he still rides in town with foam under his buttocks?
Until now, it was not known what happened when lightning struck the asphalt. Looks like some kind of giant mushroom covered in cement. You can really find everything on the Internet these days. We never would have thought of that until someone posted it online.
You can learn every day just by looking at pictures on the Internet. We would be a little apprehensive at the idea of touching it, because it looks like something that comes to us from another planet. We pity the worker who will have to fill this hole.
For some time now, candles and candle holders that have a funny shape have been very trendy. They are found everywhere. We can therefore say that this object is at the forefront of decoration. It’s as if the character of Lumière in Beauty & The Beast came back from a too drunken evening.
We know that there is a drug to fight this problem, but it is only on prescription. Maybe if they light the candle it will straighten up and come back to life, that would be an interesting experience.
Sometimes we tell ourselves that people must be really bored to try such crazy experiments which can be dangerous for their health. But who can have the idea of putting a highlighter in the microwave to see what happens? Between the toxic fumes and the risk of damaging the microwave, we would not feel comfortable.
This person didn’t bother with all these questions and had their highlighter warmed up. The result is pretty cool. It feels like a creative new way to reveal the gender of an unborn baby at an American-style baby shower.
31. When The Light Passes Through The Blind And Hits My Trash
When the sun managed to pierce through the blind and bounce off the trash can, the reverberation created these mysterious circles. A bit between a Wi-Fi signal and those weird circles in the wheat fields in Kansas.
Perhaps this is a signal to call a superhero. Maybe the next Marvel hero? We don’t want to be spoiled. His name is definitely Trash-man or some other trash pun.
You can’t even imagine the temperature outside so that the water immediately turns to ice while the wheels were in motion. One has the impression that it is a weapon, like on ancient tanks, to puncture the tires of opponents who pass too close during a race.
You don’t want to live in the same place as the owner of this car and endure such extreme weather conditions. It would be so pretty though if the ice wasn’t covered in dirt, it would almost be a work of art.
33. At Least They Have Enough Ice Cubes For The Whole Evening
Have you ever wondered what would happen if you remove the ice maker tray from an American style freezer? Well, here is the result. The entire freezer got filled with ice and now they’re not likely to be drinking under-chilled soda anytime soon.
They will be able to organize a big party and not spend a dime on ice cubes. We wonder how they did to get rid of it, it must have taken them a long time and a good pair of gloves.
Have you ever stayed in your bath for too long to notice your fingers starting to wrinkle like a plum? Well if you fall asleep in your bath, this is what your hands will look like. It’s pretty awful as a sight. If there is a phobia of that, we want to know the name because we’re pretty sure we have it.
We imagine that the hands of the mermaids under the ocean must look like this. It is very dangerous to fall asleep in your bath, you can easily drown, this person is doing well, even if the result is not beautiful to see.
35. They Tried To Take A Photo Of A Plane’s Propeller
When this person tried to take a picture of this moving airplane propeller, they created this perfect image. It looks a bit like the head of a new species of unknown shark that we would not want to meet in the water. But the photo is very cool.
If someone is playing the guitar and you take a photo, you’ll see a bit of the same effect on that photo. Cameras find it difficult to cut out a photo of a moving object. It is a good concept for taking original and artistic photos.
36. When You Forget Your Spring Roll On Your Desk For Four Days.
This person ordered spring rolls on Friday for lunch at the office. She forgot one and back after a long weekend, she found that the bean sprouts had sprouted through the rice cake. You almost wonder what it would look like after even more time.
Maybe they should plant it in the ground and see if they end up with any plants. Every week, people in the office could take turns watering it. It would be a fun experience to try with office colleagues, why not?
When people don’t harvest their salads on time, they start to sprout upwards. This person let their lettuce grow and now they have more leaves to eat. When the lettuce reaches the clouds, they will be able to climb it and go in search of the golden egg of the goose and the giant.
We always thought that “Jack and the Beanstalk” was just a fairy tale, but we realize that it is ultimately possible. We don’t know if it’s a good idea to go disturb the giants that live in the clouds. Maybe when the giants play sports or bowling, that’s what sets off thunderstorms in the sky?
If you open a dollar or euro banknote in Photoshop, a message will appear telling you that the application does not allow banknotes to be edited. It can therefore recognize the images you open and prevent any illegal activity.
Printers and fax machines will give you the same message if you try to print a banknote. How many currencies in the world can they recognize? If they let people change tickets, one wonders how many people would attempt to counterfeit, like in the Good Girls series .
We would never have thought of freezing the famous sour candies in the shape of worms. We are not bored enough or we are certainly running out of time. In any case, if you like your candies to have a crunchy side, here is an unstoppable tip.
It’s intriguing to see that they’ve gotten bigger. It looks like choux pastry after cooking. We would really like to taste them, just out of curiosity. We imagine that the banknote is there so that we realize that their size has increased, but it is enough to put them next to a normal candy.
40. When You Take A Photo With Your Iphone At The Same Time Another Flash Fires
If you take a picture of someone when a flash goes off, this is what it will look like. This is because Iphones take a photo very quickly and this is the result when it falls in full flash from another camera.
We learn about it every day on cell phone cameras. Even though the photo is spoiled, it’s fascinating how accurately the phone managed to capture both the bright part and the dark part of this photograph at the same time.
