We like to believe that our world is made of the strongest stuff, but the truth is that it’s nothing compared to what Mother Nature can do if you just give her some time.
These 11 things were once shiny and new, too, but over time the weather and the elements have taken their toll – and now they kind of look like relics from the distant past.
1. I wonder if those still spend.
Asking the real questions here.
2. Like a scene from The Happening.
Nature will eventually fight back. Ha!
3. You’re telling me that’s not a painting?
I am gobsmacked.
4. This looks super cool.
Obviously, I don’t let my pumpkins rot for long enough on my porch.
5. Removed by who? Pennywise?
I have a feeling this sign is very effective.
6. I honestly didn’t know this was possible.
Are we sure those are the same knife?
7. They tell a whole story.
One that is hopefully changing.
8. Those must be her lucky cards.
You can pry them out of her cold, dead fingers.
9. Those work boots deserve a retirement.
I want to know how many years he wore them (or how hard he works).
10. That’s some workmanship.
Seriously, you could probably wear some of them still.
11. This looks really cool.
I just think about how many hands have touched it over time.
I love images like this. It appeals to my tendency toward existential dread.
