20 stories from Reddit users when things made by man rebelled against him

1 year ago

At one fine (or not so) moment, it may happen that equipment, machines or any other device created by human hands may fail. In some cases, this is okay, because if the blender breaks, you can go to the store and buy a new one, but what if the plane breaks down or the train goes off the rails? Of course, in this case, trouble cannot be avoided. It is these stories of rebellious technology and other man-made things that await you next.


On April 28, 1988, a Boeing 737 tore off a part of the fuselage at an altitude of about 8 thousand meters in flight, but the pilot still managed to land successfully


Three days of searching led nowhere, she was never found.

There were reportedly problems obtaining readings from passengers close to the severed section, as almost all of them were instantly unconscious due to the sudden decompression.


On May 7, 2021, a tourist was stuck on a Chinese glass bridge on Piyan Mountain in Longjing City at an altitude of 100 m


The glass floor bridge partially collapsed due to a hurricane wind at 12:45, leaving one tourist trapped. The man was rescued thanks to the combined efforts of firefighters, police, foresters and tourist personnel at 1:20 pm after he crawled to safety. After this incident, the tourist needed psychological help.

The wind speed reportedly reached 150 km / h during the hurricane.


Photo of the bridge named "Galloping Gertie" at the time of its collapse


On November 7, 1940 with a wind speed of about 65 km / h, an accident occurred, which led to the destruction of the central span of the bridge, named "Galloping Gertie". This nickname was given to the bridge due to the fact that in windy weather its roadbed strongly swayed. Fortunately, at that moment the traffic was very weak and the only driver of the car, named Coatesworth, who was on the bridge at that moment, managed to escape. The driver managed to escape, because the collapse occurred gradually until it reached a critical point.


After an unsuccessful stop, the train ended up on top of a giant whale statue


In early November 2020, a Dutch subway train, for unknown reasons, drove through the stopping block at great speed.


One of the cars took off and ended up on top of the statue of a giant whale tail


The moment of the accident happened at night, so there was no one in the car except the driver. The subway driver was taken to the hospital, but nothing threatened his health.


On August 14, 2020, the Swiss city of Olten received "chocolate snow" due to a malfunction in the ventilation system of a local factory


An accident occurred at the Swiss chocolate factory Lindt & Spruengli, located in Olten, as a result of which the factory and its surroundings were covered with real chocolate chips. Due to improper ventilation coupled with a windy day, the chocolate chips were scattered around the factory and beyond.

Perhaps this is the most harmless story of all.


Gas pipeline explosions in the Taiwanese city of Kaohsiung on July 31, 2014


Witnesses to the leak reported seeing fireballs soaring into the sky and flames reaching 15 stories high. The gas pipeline explosions caused damage to 6 km of the road and an accident on the electrical network. There were at least five explosions in the city. After them 23,600 houses were left without gas, 12,000 without electricity, 8,000 without water.


On December 7, 2019, a hexavalent chromium leak occurred in Detroit, leaking into the ground from a chemical storage facility in which it was improperly contained


This became known only when a yellow-green liquid began to leak onto a nearby highway. Chromium reportedly seeped into the ground for at least 3 years before spilling onto the road, as the leak was reported by the authorities back in 2016.

In this case, hexavalent chromium was used in the application of an electrolytic (galvanic) metal coating. Hexavalent chromium products are genotoxic carcinogens. Chronic inhalation of hexavalent chromium compounds increases the risk of diseases of the nasopharynx, the risk of lung cancer.


In 2019, cars transported on an open deck caught fire


Salt water caused a short circuit in the batteries, which caused a fire.

It remains only to imagine how they later explained this case to the car owners: "Your car caught fire because of the water." Imagine the rest of the swim. Just a ship full of burnt scrap metal.



In 2019, a Sicilian winery ruptured an 80,000-liter cistern with red wine


Reportedly, the remains of wine in the cistern were still saved. It is estimated that the equivalent of 2,000-2,600 bottles of wine was lost, and the exposure to alcohol and carbon dioxide caused headaches, dizziness and leg tremors among the plant employees for 24 hours.


March 11, 2021: the last seconds of the Ukrainian bulk carrier Volgo-Balt 179 before it sank near the Romanian Constanta


The crew consisted of 12 men and one woman, all of them citizens of Ukraine. Out of 13 sailors, 10 were rescued. According to preliminary data, the Volgo-Balt 179, flying the flag of the Comoros, fell on its side and subsequently turned over, the cause was a strong roughness at sea.


On December 19, 2019, London workers drilled a hole in the ground, but, unfortunately, there were lines of wires in this place, with the help of which access to the Internet was provided


A very costly mistake, but this is not the fault of technology, but of specific people, and not workers, but those who have allowed drilling in this place. Reportedly, about 80,000 people were left without the Internet. Fortunately, the company was able to quickly restore access, and by December 23, Internet access was restored.


The passenger Boeing 777 engine failed at an altitude of 4 km and caught fire. The pilot was able to land the plane, and 231 passengers and 10 crew members were not hurt


Fortunately, modern aircraft have engines powerful enough to keep flying. The very moment when you would be glad that you did not get a seat near the window.


When a video wall with monitors for a total of 300 thousand dollars (≈22.3 million rubles) just picks up and falls


Presumably, when installing the panels, a mounting cable of the wrong size was used, which broke off under the weight of the video wall. It is also reported that the amount of real damage is about 2 times higher.

Very costly technical disobedience.


In 2021, an explosion occurred at an Indonesian refinery located in the Indramayu region

No one is perfect, and mistakes are inevitable. However, over time there have been many mistakes that have cost a fortune, not to mention human losses and environmental impact. If we aroused your curiosity, here are 10 of the most expensive mistakes in history. Bemorepanda collected them to inform you!

1. The explosion of the Ariane rocket 5

On June 4, 1996, the first Ariane 5 rocket started its engines and was launched from the coast of French Guiana. 37 seconds later, the rocket twisted 90 degrees in the wrong direction and in less than two seconds - the aerodynamic forces caused the amplifiers outside the rocket to break. This triggered the self-destruct mechanism and the rocket exploded. The disastrous launch cost about $ 370 million and delayed scientific research on the operation of the Earth's magnetosphere by almost 4 years. The launch of Ariane 5 is widely recognized as one of the most expensive software failures in history.

2. The sinking of the Titanic

The sinking of the Titanic is one of the most disastrous maritime accidents in history. On April 14, 1912, just four days after leaving port, the huge ship was destroyed in the North Atlantic Ocean in a collision with an iceberg, and about 1,500 people lost their lives. A century later, it emerged that the sinking of the Titanic was caused by a navigation error, doubled by a wrong decision. The financial loss was estimated at $ 7.5 million or about $ 168 million today. 

3. Hitler's came to power

Henry Tandey, the most decorated British soldier during the First World War, could change history and stop all the horrors caused by the Nazis, as well as the loss of 60 million lives in World War II.

While on a battlefield in France during World War I, Tandey (a 26-year-old soldier) aimed his rifle at a wounded German soldier who was trying to flee to save his life. , according to Mirror. Out of compassion, Tandey spared the young man. That was Hitler, and he was 29 at the time.

4. SNCF and its oversized trains

With only a few extra inches, the Société Nationale des Chemins de Fer Français (SNCF), the French national railway company, and the Réseau Ferré de France (RFF) angered the French. In 2014, in order to accommodate more passengers and give them more space in trains, SNCF ordered 341 trains that were too wide to pass through certain French stations. As a result, the company was forced to build 1,300 docks at a cost of 50 million euros.

5. The hunter who started one of the largest forest fires in California

 In 2003, a 34-year-old Californian hunter got lost in a forest in San Diego and lit a fire to be found by authorities. Unfortunately, due to carelessness, the fire spread rapidly in the forest, and this mistake started one of the most devastating fires in California history. The loss was about $ 1.2 billion, and the fire destroyed more than 110,500 hectares, 2,820 buildings and killed 15 people.

The culprit was fined $ 9,000 and sentenced to 960 hours of community service.

6. $ 225 million lost due to a input error

A typo cost the Japanese company Mizuho Securities $ 225 million. On December 8, 2005, the brand issued an order mentioning the sale of 610,000 shares for one yen per share. In reality, they intended to sell a 610,000 yen (about 5,000 euros) share on the Tokyo Stock Exchange.

7. Piper Alpha platform explosion due to a valve

The explosion of the Piper Alpha platform is listed as the worst oil disaster to occur offshore. The event took place on the night of July 6, 1988, as part of maintenance operations. The safety valves were replaced, but the technicians made a mistake and forgot to replace a single valve. Because of this, when an attempt was made to activate the liquid gas pumps, the 90-meter-high platform was engulfed in charcoal and exploded. As a result of this disaster, 167 workers lost their lives and the material damage was estimated at about $ 3.4 billion.

8. The 1982 invasion of the Falkland Islands

The war in the Falkland Islands (also called the Falkland Islands) - located about 500 km from the coast of Argentina and 13,000 kilometers from the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, lost by Argentina, cost the country 850 million dollars . But in addition to the material losses, more than 700 young soldiers lost their lives.

9. The Chernobyl nuclear disaster

On April 26, 1986, the number four reactor at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant suffered a catastrophic explosion of its steam-fired boilers, which triggered a fire, a series of additional explosions and radioactive leaks.

Radioactive material spread through the atmosphere has severely affected the health of millions of people. It is estimated that the radiation released into the atmosphere was 100 times stronger than that emitted by the atomic bombs in Nagasaki and Hiroshima.

10. Russia sold the territory of Alaska to the United States

In 1867, Russia sold Alaska to the United States for $ 7.2 million (currently about $ 132 million) - and this is listed as one of the most costly mistakes in history. Faced with major financial problems and the fear of losing the colonies without any compensation, Tsar Alexander II decided to get rid of his North American territories, which at the time did not bring him much benefits.

No one then imagined the protos that the Americans will get from this acquisition. Alaska is indeed rich in natural resources such as gold and oil. Oil and gas reserves are worth $ 200 billion, according to economists.

Memory is one of the most important functions of the psyche. It allows you to accumulate experience, navigate the past and the present. According to the calculations of neurophysiologists, the human brain can remember from 5 to 20 petabytes of information. 


This is comparable in volume to the entire global network. However, we are often able to forget where we just put the phone and whether the iron was turned off when we left the house. Bemorepanda has compiled a list of amazing memory facts that will help unravel some of the secrets of how our brains work.


Memory is the total amount of what we remember, it is the ability to learn and adapt previous experiences to present situations. Memory is the brain's ability to encode, store, and later recall information, sensations, feelings when needed, automatically or consciously. In other words, it is the ability to use learned or experienced situations from the past to solve and anticipate present and future events, respectively. Memory influences behavior and is part of the continuous process of adapting to the environment with all that it entails.


Facts about memory are really interesting that’s why you need to know how memory works.



1. Memory reserve can be increased. 


2. Human memory continues to develop until the age of 25. 


3. On average, the peak of its capabilities falls on 19-20 years, and the first signs of attenuation appear after 50. However, with regular exercise, this process can be slowed down. To improve the characteristics of memory, there are a variety of techniques, methods, and technologies, the totality of which is called mnemonics.


4. Photos are erased from memory faster. 


5. Scientists at the University of California have proven that photographed objects are erased from memory faster. 


6. The fact is that when we photograph, our brain concentrates on the very process of photography, and not on the object that we are photographing.


7. Depression erases memories. In a person who is depressed for a long time, the formation of new nerve cells slows down. This deforms the memory, and some of the memories from our past are erased.


8. The first memories appear even before birth. The embryo begins to remember some events already in the womb. A similar phenomenon is observed already at the 19th week of pregnancy.


9. Memory must be enabled. Memory and attention are closely related. 



Etymologically, the word memory comes from the Latin memoria. It is a cognitive, logical process, representing the ability of the human brain to encode, store, store and then remember acquired information and past experiences. It is essential for human development and depends on learning processes because the association of data will stimulate and perfect the memory process.


On the one hand, memory depends on conscious learning, but it also exists in its absence. On the other hand, learning depends on memory, but also on the brain's exceptional ability to make connections between lived and learned experiences. For example, we consciously learn words from a foreign language, but when we use them, we use memory to reproduce them. Memory is related to the learning process, but it differs from what is in itself the mechanism by which man acquires knowledge through the conscious action of the learner.


The ability of humans to draw on memories to imagine their future and to determine the course of future actions was the key to human development as an intelligent species. Phenomenon and state alike, it is intangible, being a concept that refers to the process of memory, a complex and complicated process. Also, memory contributes to the experiences of the individual and stimulates his imagination.


Some have described memory as a file cabinet, others as a supercomputer in the brain. Closer to the truth is the idea that memory is a continuous process (including during sleep), which takes place at all times in the whole brain. Human memory stores, creates, processes information, to provide what is coherent thinking.


Memories are what make us able to read, drive a car, solve math problems and they are also what make us an identity. An example: if we think of an object, a pen, say, the brain takes the name of the object, its shape, its function, and every detail comes from another part of the brain. The image is reconstructed almost instantly and is sometimes accompanied by moments related to this object, all associated with images, emotions, and sensations. This whole process, which we do not yet fully understand in all its complexity, is memory.



10. To start learning new information, you need to concentrate and set yourself up for the memorization process. Passively perceived information is not deposited in the head and is quickly forgotten.


11. Bad memories fade faster. Forgetting is one of the main functions of memory. It helps to erase irrelevant information and protect the nervous system from overstraining. 


12. At the same time, the brain quickly replaces negative impressions, leaving in memory the most pleasant and desirable moments.


13. In the brain, the zones responsible for smell and memory are nearby. At the same time, thanks to this close connection, the smell can evoke vivid memories in us, which in turn return as soon as we smell a certain smell again.


14. Memory depends on a person's chronotype. Larks perceive information better in the morning, and owls - in the evening.


15. Vitamins of groups B, C, E, and fatty acids contained in various foods help improve memory. In the brain, there are cells - neurons that are responsible for the process of memorization. 


16. Food rich in beneficial minerals promotes good brain function and memory.



Short-term memory is also called working memory, with the ability to retain a small amount of information in the short term. It is separated from sensory and long-term memory. The ability to retain certain sequences depends on the conscious effort that the individual makes.


Without repetition and active maintenance, the information is retained for only a few seconds. For example, to understand what we are reading, we need to remember the beginning of the sentence as we go through it. Short-term memory has a limited capacity in terms of the amount of information that can run and decompose quickly.


Repeating information activates long-term memory, but the process depends on how long the working memory is stimulated and the amount of detail. The process of transferring from short-term to long-term memory involves encoding and consolidating data, hence the need to repeat information to retain it in the long term. The emotional content of information contributes to the activation of long-term memory, in which case we are talking about a special component of long-term memory, called affective memory.



17. Some mistakenly believe that caffeine improves memory. First of all, thanks to this substance, there is a concentration of attention for a while. 


18. Memory directly depends on the proper rest and sleep of a person.


19. Clutter is bad for memory. Discipline is the key to success in everything, and memorization is no exception. To retrieve memories at the right time, memory needs organized storage.


20. Memories "live" everywhere. Different parts of the brain are involved in the process of memory. 


21. Recent studies note that, for example, memories are not stored in one or more of them, but are scattered through a system of neural connections.


22. Lefties have a better memory. Only 10 percent of the world's population are left-handed, and scientists have proven that this small part of people remembers information much better than right-handed people.



23. Trick to remember: close your eyes. By closing our eyes, we get rid of all distractions, allowing the brain to focus on recent memories.


24. Memory works better outdoors. Even one hour spent outdoors improves memory and attention span by 20 percent.


25. Some types of lies are better remembered. Everyone lies, but we don't remember every lie well. As it turns out, false descriptions—complex figments of our imaginations—are easier to remember than false negatives, where you deny what happened.


26. A short nap helps retain new information. If you are preparing for an exam for a long time and want to memorize a large amount of information, experts advise a short afternoon nap.


27. Physical exercise improves the ability to remember new information. When we train, not only our physical fitness improves, but also our mental abilities. 


28. Physical activity has a positive effect on the work of the hippocampus - the part of the brain that is the center of memory.


29. We are bad at remembering sounds. Approximately 65 percent of the population are visual, meaning they must take in information with their eyes to learn it. 



30. At the same time, we remember only one-fifth of what we hear. By adding visual data, you can significantly improve the assimilation of information.


31. You better remember what you say out loud. If you need to memorize a report or facts, try to read the important information aloud. Scientists have found that this action helps to store words in long-term memory.


32. Depression erases memories. Against its background, part of the memories simply disappears.


33. The first memories appear even before birth. The embryo already at the 19th week begins to remember events.


34. Memory must be enabled. To begin to assimilate information, you need to concentrate and set yourself up for the memorization process.


35. The brain first of all displaces negative impressions, leaving in memory the most pleasant and desirable moments.


36. The parts of the brain responsible for smelling and remembering are nearby, so smells can trigger vivid memories.



37. Memory depends on a person's chronotype. "Larks" are better remembered in the morning, and "owls" in the evening.


38. Memories are not stored in one or more areas of the brain but are scattered throughout the system of neural connections.


39. Lefties have a better memory.


40. Closing our eyes, we stop being distracted, allowing the brain to concentrate on memories.


41. Even one hour outdoors improves memory and attention by 20%.


42. A short nap helps you remember new information better.


43. Exercise promotes good memory.


44. Most people remember visual information more easily than spoken information.


45. A person remembers more easily what he says out loud.



46. Memories "live" everywhere. The process of memory involves different parts of the brain. Recent studies note that, for example, memories are not stored in one or more of them, but are scattered through a system of neural connections.


47. Lefties have a better memory. Only 10 percent of the world's population are left-handed, and scientists have proven that this small part of people remembers information much better than right-handed people.


48. Trick to remember: close your eyes. By closing our eyes, we get rid of all distractions, allowing the brain to focus on recent memories.


49. Memory works better outdoors. Even one hour spent outdoors improves memory and attention span by 20 percent.


50. Some types of lies are better remembered. Everyone lies, but we don't remember every lie well. As it turns out, false descriptions—complex figments of our imaginations—are easier to remember than false negatives, where you deny what happened.

Everything in the world is relative and is understood in comparison. For example, you can photograph an ant so that it looks like a giant, but a skyscraper photographed from a distance can seem like a toy mock-up. You can assess the true scale of things in the photo only if you compare them with something whose size we are familiar with, for example, with other people. We want to show you a collection of really huge things, whose size is so large that people stood next to them so that you can fully appreciate their greatness.

The modern world is literally overflowing with thematic literature on self-knowledge, and Internet publications daily publish excerpts from scientific articles by specialists: psychology is increasingly becoming the subject of our interest. After all, each of us wants to be in harmony with our own “I”, make the most of the possibilities of the mind and build harmonious relationships with friends and loved ones. Bemorepanda prepared for you 50 entertaining facts that will help you understand yourself and better understand the people around you.

Human psychology - internal features that distinguish one person from another.

Each of us has our own characteristics: a different amount of memory and a different reaction rate, since childhood, boys love to play with cars and fight, girls play with dolls and slander, with age, we all change values ​​and interests.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Human psychology includes his abilities, skills, including managing his emotions, his worldview, attitudes and beliefs, his self-image, his goals and values, character and temperament , needs and such different feelings ...

"From below" human psychology is determined by the genetics of a person, the structure and pattern of his body, "from above" - ​​by the social environment in which a person socializes, from where he takes patterns of behavior that somehow builds and educates him.

Human psychology is also the internal causes of human behavior, making it go beyond logic, expediency or reasonable social expectations. When a person's behavior is rational and expedient, fits into the social framework and logic, the question of psychology is not raised. It is not lifted by people with a business approach. For people who love to talk about psychology, there is always a reason for this.

And when something does not fit into the rational, when states, feelings and other unpredictable internal features begin to influence a person's behavior, a conversation begins about psychology - human psychology.

Human psychology can be studied scientifically (this is what psychology as a science does), or it can be described mystical, esoteric, or simply worldly: then we get a mystical, religious, worldly psychology.

For a large number of people "psychology" is a favorite pastime. Such people who are keen on psychology are looking for psychological content and psychological background where there is no “psychology” at the level of common sense.
