Most people know that smoking is extremely harmful to your health, but even with all the warnings and the graphic photos of what cigarette smoke does to your body, many continue to smoke. But that may change if they watch this short video – it’s the most convincing case we’ve ever seen against smoking, and shows the difference in lung capacity between a smoker and a non-smoker.
While on a walk by Estonia’s Lake Kurtna Matasjarv, a little boy spotted something very odd: there was a deep trough in the ground where nothing seemed to be growing. The strange path led down into the water, but there didn’t appear to be anything on or in the lake. Yet closer inspection revealed bubbles coming up from the bottom in a continuous stream.
The child alerted some nearby adults, and an investigation was launched. What they found is unlike anything ever seen before.
While walking near Estonia’s Lake Kurtna Matasjarv, a little boy spotted something strange.
The path, which appeared to have been gouged into the ground, led into the water, and there was no vessel or body in sight. But there were bubbles coming from the bottom of the lake in a steady stream.
He alerted nearby hikers who came to investigate. After a little digging, it became clear that they would need some help, so they called the authorities.
With the proper equipment in place, the mystery would hopefully be revealed.
Shortly after they began to dig, they struck the side of a metal object.
It appeared to be some kind of craft.
After a while, they found a hatch.
Captivated by the mystery, they kept digging.
After what seemed like forever, the strange object finally revealed itself.
It was a tank from WWII in nearly perfect condition.
The tank appeared to be a Soviet-built T34/76A.
It is now believed that the tank was abandoned in the lake to keep it out of enemy hands.
The tank, which weighed over 27 metric tons, had been at the bottom of the lake for 56 years.
This all took place just one thousand feet from what is today a disc golf park!
Watch the footage of the tremendous effort it took to get the old tank out of the mud:
