Nature is an unendingly complex machine that drives everything on this planet. Just when we think we have part of it figured out, something new is discovered and it changes everything. Other times, nature can be just downright weird. Take, for example, what happened to this poor car parked on the streets of Rotterdam in the Netherlands back in 2014…

Normally, leaving your car parked on the street would be no big deal in Rotterdam. This, however, was no normal weekend.

The owner of the red Honda came back on Monday to find his car was covered in what looked like spiderwebs. Talk about a nightmare, right?

However, if you look closer, you can see that the creators of the web aren’t actually spiders at all. No, in fact they’re moth larvae, aka caterpillars.

And it wasn’t just the car that was covered in them, the whole street was coated from top to bottom in caterpillar webs.

Turns out, this happens when multiple female caterpillars lay their eggs in the same tree. When the eggs hatch, a chain reaction of sorts can occur as thousands of young moths create webs for protection against predators while they look for food.

While the process is completely natural, that doesn’t make it any less freaky. If you’re looking for information about this particular caterpillar growth explosion, make sure to check out the documentary below.

One caterpillar is totally fine with me. It’s when there is a swarming bunch of them that I start to get freaked out. If I were that guy, I would just burn my car for the insurance money.

Is Elvis really dead? According to the widely accepted story, the singer’s unresponsive body was found on the bathroom floor of his Memphis, Tennessee, home on the afternoon of August 16, 1977. He was 58 years old. Officially, the cause of death was organ failure from years of poor diet and drug abuse.

However, not everyone accepts this story of his death as the truth. The more conspiracy-minded people out there believe that Elvis is alive and well somewhere, and that he faked his own death to get away from his life and live like a normal person. YouTuber The Shadow is one of those people.

Earlier this month, he posted a video of an elderly groundskeeper at Graceland (Elvis’ former home). He believes this man might’ve been Elvis himself. I will admit he bears a striking resemblance to the man, who would be 81 this year if he were still alive.

What do you think? While I’d personally love to believe that Elvis is still alive out there somewhere and plotting his comeback, this particular theory of Elvis as a groundskeeper seems especially absurd to me.
