A surprising phenomenon: there are 8 places on the planet where gravity works

Planet Earth lives according to the law of gravitation, which was opened by sir Isaac Newton. But there are gravitational anomalies, where this law is not working: there are plugged, the car goes uphill, the waterfall against the logic flows upwards, and a multi-ton boulder rests on top of a cliff under the unrealistic tilting, wobbles but doesn’t fall down. This writes Adme.ru.

On the floor is impossible to walk – must cling to walls or poles, otherwise blows, as with the ship rolling. But the broom, on the contrary, it is short.

Sell excluded: many tourists would take a level to measure slope.

Standing on the dam with a height of 221 meters, it is possible to conduct an experiment: try to pour water from the bottle.

6. Mysterious road in South Korea

Empty bottles and cans left on the road on Jeju island, will obediently slide into the mountain tourists not checked. And resourceful the authorities quickly made this place attractive to tourists and even put a sign indicating where it begins a gravity anomaly.

Covered in gold leaf stone seems ready at any moment to break down, but stands on the site already 2,500 years old. The height of the boulder together with the built on it pagoda is about 15 m. According to legend, the stone rests in the balance of the Buddha, which is bricked up inside.
