Cats 

French scientists launched two cats into space in 1963. The first cat, Felicette, survived her flight just fine but the second cat unfortunately perished during it’s flight.

Dogs

The former USSR was quite famous for sending dogs into space. They usually found a stray dog and trained them for the missions. The most famous dog was Laika who was sent aboard Sputnik 2. Though she was never intended to survive the mission anyway, she died earlier than intended when the craft took on excessive heat about 5 to 7 hours after launch.

Spiders

The first spiders were sent into space in 1972. Since then spiders have been sent into space several more times to observe if there is a difference in their web building or hunting with no gravity. It was found that a jumping spider simply refused to build webs and just pounced on her prey instead.

Nuclear War

Not only is the tension high between many of the countries around the world, but a record number of them are armed with nuclear bombs: 9 to be exact. And only 5 of them have a Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, leaving 4 countries doing whatever they want with them, including North Korea. Studies have shown that if worldwide nuclear war broke out and 100 bombs were launched it would create a nuclear winter with record low temperatures and severe impacts on the surviving population. If 1,000 bombs were launched, it is estimated that most if not all of the world’s population would be killed in the war.

Supervolcano Eruption

Some scientists actually theorize that volcanic eruptions could have been responsible for the extinction of the dinosaurs and not an asteroid impact and another one was thought to kill about 95% of species on Earth about 200 million years ago. Want to know something that will really scare the pants off of you? There is a super volcano 34 by 45 miles wide under Yellowstone National Park that is due to erupt every 600,000 years and it has been 640,000 years since it last erupted. If and when this volcano erupts, it could emit 2000 million tons of sulfuric acid, blocking out the sun for years and causing the equivalent of a nuclear winter.

17 Times I Would Rather Be Lied To Than Be Told The Truth

mostshared:

When You’re Breaking Up With Me
Don’t tell me you’re leaving because you love another woman or my hands are too big. Don’t tell me it’s because you found someone better or that you’re tired of me. Just tell me it’s you, tell me it’s just not working, tell me anything but just don’t say it’s me.

When I Got A Bad Haircut
It will grow out so for now just indulge me and don’t make me feel like I made the biggest mistake of my life. Tell me it looks good, tell me I rock it, tell me it’s fabulous on me. Because if you don’t, I may just lock myself in my room for the next three weeks.

Snow White: Happily Ever After 

In 1993 there was a movie released that was called Happily Ever After (alternately Snow White: Happily Ever After). Though it was released in theaters, it did really poorly, only bringing in just over 3 million dollars. This sequel to the original 1937 Snow White and the Seven Dwarves replaced the dwarves with their female cousins, the Dwarfelles. There was even a video game for the movie released in 1994.

The Return of Jafar 

There were actually two animated sequels to the Aladdin movies, The Return of Jafar in 1994 and Aladdin and the King of Thieves in 1996. Sadly, due to a contract dispute with Disney, Robin Williams did not do the voice of the Genie in The Return of Jafar.
