19 Most Guarded Places On Earth



1 (1)                                                      Vatican Secret Archives Despite the church’s attempt at openness, critics say the contents aren’t accessible enough since only qualified clergy and academics are allowed inside the facility, and even those granted entry cannot view items without advanced approval. Thus, the skeptics remain, with theories ranging from the cavern hiding gospels that contradict the Bible, to housing the earliest known collection of pornography, and holding plans to control the world.

1 (2)
Fort Knox
Fort Knox is home to the US Bullion Depository. It not only stores thousands of tons of gold, but, it is said to house important historical documents as well, such as the Declaration of Independence and the Magna Carte. If a bank robber was somehow able to get through the solid granite wall perimeter and past the squadrons of machine-gun wielding guards and armed military, they would still have to contend with a 22-ton vault blast door held shut by a lock so intricate that it requires a 10 person team to unlock.


1 (3)
Federal Reserve Bank in New York
Below the streets of Manhattan sits a vault so impenetrable that it’s entrusted with more U.S. gold bullion than the famous Fort Knox. Security is so tight that men aren’t allowed to enter the vault; pallets are moved around by a team of robots. The bank’s security systems are so trusted that even foreign governments use it for gold storage. And – as if that wasn’t enough – a Jason Bourne level protection force watch the perimeter; their shooting range scores are so good they’re better than marksmen.

1 (4)
Tumen River
This river makes up part of the boundary between Russia and North Korea and also snakes down into Chinese territory. Within a mile, you can go from North Korea, through China and end up in Russia, which makes this a good place for those wishing to defect. As such, it is generally well guarded by North Korean soldiers.

1 (5)
The Iranian Gold Reserve – Location Unknown
What makes the vault holding Iran’s gold reserve impenetrable is that nobody can say for sure where it is. One could assume the vault is either in the Imperial Treasury location or the Iran Central Bank, but you know what they say about assumptions. Iran secretly flew gold into the country from Europe in order to dodge “financial pressure” from the US and UK. Now that the reserves are back within Iranian borders, the location of their holding vault has been very elusive.

1 (6)
Bank of England gold vault
If Britain’s Prime Minister had a secret, he would want to keep it here. More than 4,600 tons of gold are safeguarded in what is the UK’s largest gold vault. A figure that’s second only to the Federal Reserve Vault. The walls are bombproof and the security system is so intricate that it involves voice recognition, 3 foot keys and other security measures that aren’t even published.

1 (7)
The Swiss Vaults
Crime thrillers usually have talk of a Swiss bank account. There’s a reason: Swiss banks are among the safest on the planet. The 3-key safety deposit box in particular has been used by the World’s most wealthy citizens for over 200 years.

1 (8)
The Mormon Church’s Secret Vaults
These secret vaults contain genealogical and historical records. Not only are they heavily guarded, but also, rumor has it that the records are even protected by temperature control as well as motion and heat sensors. Photos of the complex can be a challenge to come by.

1 (9)
Korean Demilitarized Zone
The Korean Demilitarized Zone is a strip of land dividing North and South Korea. It is one of the most heavily guarded borders in the world, stretching 160 miles in length and 2.5 miles in width. Because of the high defense surrounding the border, people rarely dare to cross it, and as such, it has become a nature preserve.

1 (10)
Iron Mountain
What do the charred remains of Flight 93, the original photo of Einstein sticking out his tongue, and Edison’s patent for the light bulb have in common? They’re all stowed under Iron Mountain. 200 feet below the ground, this retired limestone mine houses 1.7 million square feet worth of vaults. The US government is the biggest tenant, and the identities of 95% of vault owners are confidential. We do know that Warner Brothers, the Smithsonian Institution, and Corbis all have vaults there. Thousands of historic master recordings, photo negatives, and original film reels live here. Iron Mountain is also home to Room 48, a data center backing up some of America’s biggest companies. Two waves of armed guards protect the entrance, and it’s said they inspect guests so thoroughly that even the TSA would be embarrassed.

1 (11)
ADX Florence Prison
The Administrative Maximum Facility (ADX for short) is a supermax prison (for men) in Colorado housing the baddest of the bad. These criminals are considered the most dangerous cons in the US and has earned the prison the nickname of “Alcatraz of the Rockies.” Described by one former ADX warden as “a cleaner version of hell”, security measures at the prison include attack dogs guarding the area between the prison walls and 12 ft. high razor wire fences, 1,400 remotely controlled steel doors, motion detecting laser beams, pressure pads and cameras. Current residents include the ‘Shoe Bomber’ Richard Reid, Oklahoma City Bombing conspirator Terry Nichols and many others.

1 (12)
Bold Lane Car Park
You won’t have to worry much about car thieves when you leave your car parked here. This car park (or parking garage) in Derbyshire, England is one of the safest places in the world. You can’t get in unless you have a ticket indicating your exact parking spot. Then once your car is parked, it is protected by motion detectors and other alarms that will go off if someone messes with your car. If the alarm does go off, the whole place goes into lockdown mode.

1 (13)
Cheyenne Mountain
The Cheyenne Mountain complex was, at one point, the command center for the North American Aerospace Defense Command and U.S. Space Command missions. It is so well guarded that the tunnel is protected by solid granite and reinforced. NORAD has since moved its operations to another location. It is interesting to note that the Cheyenne Mountain Complex was also the home to the fictional Stargate Command on the popular TV show Stargate SG-1.

1 (14)
Air Force One
One of the most well built planes in the world and what many consider the world’s most secure moving location,

Air Force One has plenty of security. The United States President travels in a modified Boeing 747-200B series aircraft.

It has the world’s most advanced flight avoidance, air-to-air defense, and electronics technology packages available anywhere in the World, all for the protection of the Commander-in-Chief and his entourage.

1 (15)
Area 51
This top secret air force base in Nevada is guarded so well that no one can get in, and even flying over it is forbidden. The area is covered in motion sensors and is heavily patrolled by all sorts of vehicles. It’s the home of anything pertaining to UFOs and alien conspiracies.

1 (16)
Haven Co
Haven Co was a data-protection company located in the North Sea off the coast of Britain. The only people ever allowed in were authorized personnel, investors, and members of Britain’s royal family. However, it allegedly shut down in 2008. Set into the middle of the North Sea, there was no way you were getting into this place. What data was stored here, and why did it suddenly go defunct without explanation?

1 (17)
The Greenbrier
Spread out across 6,500 acres, this exclusive resort lies deep within the forests of West Virginia. Underneath lies the real secret, however. Underneath lies a 25-ton nuclear blast door, with tunnels behind it which create a nuclear bunker that is filled with supplies for members of the U.S. Congress to weather out a nuclear attack.

1 (19)
The 1960’s Bar
Located 100 feet underground within Britain’s secret subterranean Burlington bunker complex in Wiltshire, England, the 1960’s Bar is a recreation of a pub popular with British Government officials. This top secret base was first constructed during the Cold War and designed to be a refuge for the higher-ups to reconstruct Britain in the event of a nuclear attack.

Stunning Photos of Animals


  Stunning Photos of Animals you’ve probably never seen before

1 – Frilled shark
This is a frilled shark. Frilled sharks are found throughout deep waters in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. It is often described as a “living fossil” because of its resemblance to extinct, Paleozoic sharks. They’re rarely seen alive because of their preference for deep water. A dying one was captured near the surface in Japan in 2007.
2 – Red cap goldfish
A red cap goldfish, or “oranda”. These are characterized by a prominent hood that covers the head — which let’s face it, looks like their brains are on show.
Originally from China, they are popular aquarium pets today.
3 – Promachoteuthis sulcus
Meet Promachoteuthis sulcus, a bizarre creature straight out of your nightmares. As you can see, this thing looks like it has freakishly human looking teeth. They’re actually just flaps of skin, but they’re still pretty unnerving! It’s a species of promachoteuthid squid and only one specimen has been found to date. It was captured in the Southern Atlantic Ocean at a depth of 2,000m in 2007.
4 – Crocodile Fish
This is a white-blooded ice fish, or “crocodile fish” (Chaenocephalus aceratus). They lack both red blood cells and hemoglobin, and so have white blood. They have translucent bodies, and absorb oxygen directly from the water around them.
5 – Amber phantom butterfly
The amber phantom butterfly (Haetera piera), found in the Guianas, Brazil, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia and Venezuela.
6 – The Pistol Shrimp
The pistol shrimp is the NOISIEST creature in the ocean. Colonies of them make a distinct snapping noise that overshadows nearly all other sounds throughout the world’s oceans, including the calls of some whales. In fact, they are so loud, their snapping sounds interfere with military and scientific sonar (so much so, that hostile submarines have used large colonies of pistol shrimps to hide).
7 – Lion’s Mane Jellyfish
The Lions Mane Jellyfish is the largest jellyfish in the world. They have been swimming in arctic waters since before the dinosaurs (over 650 million years ago) and are among some of the oldest surviving species in the world. The bell can grow up to 8 feet in diameter with hundreds of tentacles up to 120 feet long. Remarkably, only 6% of the jellyfish is solid matter; the rest is water.
8 – Blue footed booby
Meet the blue footed booby, found from the Gulf of California down along the western coasts of Central and South America to Peru. Their bright blue feet are a sexually selected trait. The brighter a males feet, the more attractive he is to a female. To attract a female, they have an elaborate dancing ritual to display their feet, first lifting one foot and then the other.
9 – The Cardinal Gynandromorph
No, this isn’t photoshopped. This is a cardinal “gynandromorph” – an animal that exhibits both female and male sexual characteristics. As different sexes are differently coloured, each half of the bird is a different shade.
10 – The Mexican walking fish.
“Walking fish” is a pretty general term used to describe any fish that is able to travel over land. Ironically, the Mexican walking fish isn’t a fish at all, but an amphibian. It’s official name is axolotl and as the name suggests, it’s found in Mexico.
11 – Amazon milk frog
The Amazon milk frog, a large species of arboreal frog native to the Amazon Rainforest in South America.
12 – Glass frogs
Glass frogs, a group of South and Central American frogs with translucent skin. Their internal viscera, including the heart, liver, and gastrointestinal tract are all completely visible.
13 – Yeti crab
This is the yeti crab (Kiwa hirsuta). Only discovered in 2005, the yeti crab lives in the South Pacific Ocean and grows to around 15cm long. Discovered at a depth of 2,200 metres (7,200 ft), it lives on hydrothermal vents. Based on both morphology and molecular data, the organism was deemed to form a new biological family, which was named Kiwaidae. A second species in the family was described in 2011. The “hairy” claws of the yeti crab contain filamentous bacteria, which the creature may use to convert carbon molecules emitted by the hydrothermal vents into nutrients. This is a process known as chemosynthesis. It may also consume bacteria.
14 – Alarm jellyfish
This is the alarm jellyfish (Atolla Wyvillei) – and it has a rather unique defence mechanism. When the alarm jellyfish is attacked, it flashes brightly using bioluminescence in an attempt to attract other animals. The idea is to encourage confusion and fights between predators, while the jellyfish can swim away.
15 – Nembrotha cristata is Nembrotha cristata, a colourful sea-slug found in the tropical Indo-West Pacific Ocean. They grow to about 50mm in length and have black bodies with a strange luminous green “trim”. Like most nudibranchs, they deliver a painful sting. They do not produce the stinging cells themselves but incorporate them into their own tissues from their prey, stinging jellyfish.
16 – Leatherback Sea Turtle
The Leatherback Sea Turtle is the largest turtle in the world, weighing approximately 900kg. Contrary to appearance, the leatherback doesn’t actually have a shell. What looks like a shell is in fact a leathery skin supported by small bones. This gives it a flexibility that a solid shell would not provide, allowing it to dive to astonishing depths.
17 -Pink Bottlenose Dolphin
18 – Hermit Crab
19 – Purple frogs
20 – Satanic Leaf Tailed Gecko
21 – Rare Albino Alligator
22 – One of the few albino whales on earth
23 – Stunning Albino Bengal Tiger
24 – Incredibly rare albino giraffe
25 – Pink fairy armadillo!
26 – Tube-nosed fruit bat
This creature was found just a few years ago, and doesn’t even have an official name yet. Supposedly well-known for being the animal that most looks like Yoda…
27 – King of Saxony bird of paradise
28 – Indian Bull Frog
Found in Myanmar, Bangladesh, Pakistan and of course India.The Indian bullfrog is renowned for its large size (some can be up to 15cm in length!) and dramatic coloring.
29 – Albino Lion
30 – Friendly Albino Gorilla
31 – Theridion grallator – the happy faced spider.
32 – Red-Lipped Batfish!

DID YOU KNOW As you walk up the steps to

the building which houses the U.S. Supreme Court

you can see near the top of the building a row of the

world’s law givers and each one is facing one in the middle

who is facing forward with a full
frontal view … It is Moses

and he is holding the Ten Commandments!

DID YOU KNOW? As you enter the Supreme Court courtroom, the two huge oak doors have the Ten Commandments

engraved on each lower portion of each door.

DID YOU KNOW? As you sit inside the courtroom, you can see the

wall, right above where the Supreme Court Judges sit, a display of

the Ten Commandments


There are

verses etched in stone all over the Federal

Buildings and Monuments in Washington ,


James Madison, the fourth

president, known as ‘The Father of Our
Constitution’ made the Following

‘We have staked the whole of all our
Institutions upon the capacity of mankind
Self-government, upon

the capacity of each and all of us to
govern ourselves, to

control ourselves, to sustain ourselves according to The Ten Commandments of God.’

DID YOU KNOW? Every session of Congress begins with a prayer

by a paid preacher, whose salary has been paid by the

taxpayer since 1777.

Fifty-two of the 55 founders of the Constitution
were members of the established Orthodox churches in the colonies..

Thomas Jefferson worried

that the Courts would overstep their authority and

instead of Interpreting the law would begin
making law an

oligarchy: the rule of few over many.
How then, have we gotten to the
point that
everything we have done for 220 years in this
Country is now suddenly wrong and
Lets put it around the world and let the world
see and remember what this great country was Built on The Holy Bible
and belief in GOD!

Where is the world’s   wealthiest city ?
Tokyo   , Japan   ..
That tower might as well be made of gold since Tokyo tops the charts
with a GDP of $1,520 billion, beating New York City by a mere $310 billion.

Where is the world’s   poorest city in the poorest country ?
Kinshasa   , Congo   ….
it is the poorest city in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, which is also the   poorest country in the world, at a GDP of $55 billion. Many of its residents live on less $1 a day.

What is the most photographed place   in the U.S.?
Surprise:  the Guggenheim building in New York…
Photos have always told stories, but in today’s world of cell phone cameras and social media, that story is relayed as data to companies who monitor everything we do.    Geotagged data was culled by Sights map using a Google-based image sharing software,  and can show us the most photographed places in the world, right down to this landmark.   The strange winner is this building in New York City.  Guess it impresses a lot of visitors.

Where is the wettest spot on Earth?  (and it’s not the Amazon!)
Mawsynram   , India  
In this city in India, it rains an average of   467.35 inches per year, and has a record of 1000 inches in 1985…much more than any rain forest!

The overweight United States …
We eat an average of 3,770 calories a day each.
Shamefully, obesity is becoming more of a problem every year.

Where is the world’s   oldest city ?

Men in Monaco live an average 85.3 years, and women live longer to an average of 89 years.

Which country has the   shortest life expectancy ?
Sierra Leone   ?
On the opposite side of that coin, the population of Sierra Leone live only to an average of 47 years.
The men of Sierra Leone live to an average of 47 years old, whereas women live a little longer, an average of 48 years.   Poverty plays a big roll in their short life expectancy.

What country would qualify as the most stressed-out nation in the world because of their living conditions?
By looking at the homicide rate, the GDP per capita, continued income inequality,
corruption, lack of education opportunities and unemployment numbers, one thing is clear: Nigeria’s people are, hands-down, the most stressed out population in the world.

Which city has the highest average IQ?
Hong Kong  
There are a lot of factors that affect an IQ score, ranging from national and personal wealth, to simply what test is used.
As a result, these findings are highly controversial, but suggest that Hong Kong has the highest IQ level, at an average of 107 points per person.

Which foreign city is the world’s most well-connected one for Internet use ?


Seoul   , South Korea
Surprisingly, despite China’s 618 million Internet users who spend an average of 18.7 hours a week surfing the net, China   didn’t even make the top 10 for Internet connection.    Seoul   ,Korea   is a different story considering the average connection speed, availability, (including free access), openness to innovation, support of public data, and privacy/security, Seoul   , South Korea   is the champion of Internet-connectedness.
With 10,000 government supported   free WiFi spots dotting the city, and an Internet speed that goes unchallenged globally, Seoul is an Internet junkie’s paradise.

Wasn’t that interesting?  I’ll bet you learned something new.
