  • The 15 Most Dangerous Roads in the World

    There is nothing more relaxing than a slow ride through the countryside. These roads are nice due to the absence of fast cars. Apart from the calm countryside roads, there are the dangerous roads that turn your knuckles white.

     

    It’s hard to compare driving on dangerous roads to anything else. Some of them are hand-built, others are completely hidden by water or rocks.

    Fasten your seat belts, because the Bright Side put together a compilation of 15 craziest roads that are worth exploring.

    Zoji La, India

    Ladakh and Kashmir are connected by this 9-km-long road. On top of everything, this road is extremely narrow, although it has to fit in both drivers and livestock.

    Transfăgărășan, Romania

    This road is located in the Carpathian Mountains and pierces the Făgăraș massif. It reaches a 2034-meter height and is the tallest road in Romania. Transfăgărășan is known for its gorgeous sights and its danger.

    Dalton Highway, Alaska

    Dalton Highway is the most isolated highway in the world. It is 666 km long, and only connects 3 small villages. This road is considered the snowiest highway in the world.

    Khardung La, India

    According to officials, this road is 5602 meters tall (practically taller than Mount Elbrus). Guinness World Records and National Geographic recognized Khardung La as the tallest pass road in the world.

    Yungas Road, Bolivia

    This highway is one of the most dangerous roads in the world. It takes 200 — 300 lives a year. Steep mountains are on one side, and a cliff on the other (about 600 meters tall). It is scary to think about driving on this road!

    Atlantic Ocean Road, Norway

    Atlantic Ocean Road connects small, coastal villages. By the way, this road is really meant for tourists, because the sights there are breathtaking.

    Guoliang Tunnel, China

    Guoliang Tunnel was built by the locals. A road cut out of the mountain was the only way of communication between the village and the outside world. Later, the government built a 1200-meter tunnel to help the locals with transportation.

    Le Passage du Gois, France

    Weirdly enough, this road is only open for a few hours every day. The road is hidden underwater for the rest of the day. Before entering the 4.5 km highway, read the schedule of tides. Otherwise, your car will simply sink.

    Tianmen Mountain road, China

    This road is 10 km long. It has 99 steep turns, and the difference in height between its beginning and its end is about 1,000 meters. Drivers here definitely need nerves of steel.

    Hana, Hawaii

    This 112 km road connects Kahului and Hana, on the Hawaiian island Maui. The narrow sinuous road connects 59 bridges, 46 of which only have one lane. The road is often closed due to the landslides.

    ’Kolima’, Russia

    The official title of the road that connects Yakutsk and Magadan is ’Kolima’; however, people always call it ’the death road’. The first 90 km were built by 1932 by prisoners. The construction was complete by 1953.

    Col de la Bonette, France

    This dangerous mountain pass is located on a 2000-meter height in the French Alps, right by the Italian border. This road has steep and unexpected turns.

    Gotthard Pass, Switzerland

    This is one of the tallest mountain passes in the Alps. A 64-km-long road goes from side to side and surprises passengers with its scenic views.

    ’Caucasus’ road, Russia

    This narrow road connects Sochi and the Ritsa lake through the mountains. It is scary and impressive at the same time. It’s worth seeing at least once.

    Eshima Ohashi bridge, Japan

    Although it is just a bridge, it is as dangerous as the roads we mentioned above. The bridge connects Sakaiminato and Matsue. It is about 1.7 km long, and 11.3 meters wide. From the far, the bridge seems impossible to climb. This height allows large ships to pass underneath.

    A bridge in Island County, Washington

  • Man Waited YEARS To Have Sex With Bride. Then He Learns She’s Having Another Man’s...

    - A new husband got a huge shock after he thought his wife-to-be had been faithfully celibate throughout their courtship.

    - Apparently the reason for that was because they were both devout Christians.

    - It turns out that after they got married, she was found to be pregnant with another man's child

    The new husband said that only weeks after celebrating their marriage vows, his wife announced that she was pregnant - four months' pregnant!

     

    He says that he can only assume that she had been unfaithful, as he swears that he kept up his end of the deal and remained a virgin - as he expected she would.

    It has not been reported the nationality of the couple, but there are not many cultures in which this extreme form of 'celibacy before marriage' still exist.

    The husband has said that trust has been broken and he is considering opting out of the new marriage due to the lack of faith in his spouse and his extreme religious beliefs.

    There are many men in this world who have taken on their beloved's children by other fathers and brought them up as their own, but this is still taboo to others.

     

    It would be interesting to find out the outcome of this complicated story.
