Biggest things in the world

A Tank
1. An unemployed plumber made news headlines when he stole an M60 tank on May 17,1995. The man in question stole the tank from the California Army National Guard Armory and went on a rampage, destroying everything in his path. The 23 minute chase by San Diego police (which wasn t exactly the next installment ofSpeedsince the tank could only go 30 mph at top speed) ended tragically, as the thief, who had been suffering several setbacks in his life, was shot and killed by police. .....
A Church
2. A 200 year old church was stolen in Russia. Brick by brick, the villagers of the nearby village stole the church to sell them to a local businessman who would use the material. The church, which has stood near the village of Komarovo since 1809, wasn t noticed missing because it was not currently in use. However, when church officials started to consider resuming services there, they were met with some surprise as only the foundation and a few sections of wall were left. .....
A Fully Loaded Oil Tanker
3. In 2008, Somali pirates stole a fully loaded oil tanker from an oil field in Ghana. The oil tanker contained 4.1 million barrels of oil worth $100 each. This has happened not once, not twice, butthreetimes in eighteen months, leading many to suspect that the Nigerian navy guarding the ships are in on the game. One tanker was recovered, but painted another color! .....
Fighter Plane
4. In 1992 a Major from the Israeli Air Force stole a WWII Mustang Fighter Plane. After spotting the plane in a reserve airfield where it was waiting to be moved to a museum, the major spent some time restoring it before he flew it the almost priceless vintage plane to Sweden where he sold it for $331,000! The plane is still being used by the Swedish companies and was only located when Interpol became involved! .....
3000 Pound Bell
5. In 2005 in Tacoma, Washington a 3,000 pound bell was stolen from a Buddhist temple. The bell, which was cast in Vietnam, was used very rarely and only for special occasions. According to the monks, the bell was priceless but I guess the thieves missed that memo because one year later they were caught trying to sell it for $500. .....
A Bridge
6. In 2007 a 200 tonne metal bridge was stolen. The bridge that was originally located in Khabarovsk in eastern Russia vanished overnight. The bridge was part of the only road that accessed a local heating plant. The company, who relies on the bridge to get their employees to work, says it will cost them $37,000 to replace the bridge. Interestingly, this isn t the only bridge to go missing. Bridges in India, the Czech Republic and Turkey have all been scooped up too .....
A Beach
7. The year is 2008. The month is July. The country? Beautiful Jamaica. You re there to relax under the palm trees and sun and you are just so excited to go to your favourite beach! Except .....
The Empire State Building
8. In 2008, theNew York Dailynewspaper stole the $2 million Empire State Building. According to the paper, the stunt was launched in order to highlight the gigantic loophole in the city s system for recording deeds, that is, the clerks didn t have to verify the information! The papers contained hilarious details such as King Kong star, Fay Wray being a witness and the notary shared the same name as infamous bank robber Willie Sutton. 90 minutes after the documents were submitted, Neots Properties LLC were the new proud owners of the Empire State Building .....
The Peak of a Mountain
9. In eastern India, locals from Mahatma village stole the peak of a nearby mountain called Humta Pahad. The story is a little more complicated than that however, as the unusually flat mountain peak has been chipped away by locals who then sell it to property developers so that they can feed their families. Villagers work eleven hours a day cutting at the rock. One third of the mountain has already disappeared, but with no other industries in sight, the villagers don t seem to be slowing down. The government refuses to intervene, falsely claiming that the village falls under MCC (Maoist Communist Centre) territory, to cover up their ineptitude to provide these locals with other work. The cost of the damage and how much the locals have made off the mountain cannot be estimated. .....
Gigantic Dreaming Girl St Helens England
10. Halfway between Liverpool and Manchester, the 20 metre high face of a sleeping girl towers above the busy M62 highway.

Large Flying Bowling Pins Eindhoven Netherlands
12. The city of Eindhoven found a playful way to turn the commute to its downtown core into a more enchanting journey. Along the park like median at the crossroads of Kennedylaan and Fellenoord Avenues, drivers and pedestrians discover the unexpected delight of a giant game of bowling in full swing. Bright yellow bowling pins take flight in the midst of a successful strike. By converting an otherwise stale, grassy boulevard into a fanciful sculpture exhibit, artists Claes Oldenburg and Coosje Van Brugeen s Flying Pins scores full points. And best of all, two tone bowling shoes aren t required to enjoy this game. .....

Giant Pineapple

Airplane
19. What you see in the image above is the AN 225 Mriya, a Ukrainian airliner, giving a piggyback ride to a Russian space shuttle. Yes, the world s largest aircraft is capable not only of delivering hundreds of tons of cargo and complete, arena sized concert stages, it s the aircraft you will need if you re transporting other aircraft a Boeing 737 can fit inside its cargo hold.Built in 1988, it was easily (by 50 percent) the largest plane in the world at the time and remains so today (yes, there is only one of these). Inactive for about seven years after the collapse of the Soviet Union, the massive aircraft was restored and put back into service in 2001, and it gets plenty of use, since it can transport cargo that literally no other plane on Earth can. .....
Outdoor Swimming Pool
20. Most hotel swimming pools are nothing special they re known for being small, crowded, and shallow. In an attempt to keep those adjectives out of their pool, designers of the outdoor swimming pool at San Alfonso Del Mar Resort in Chile seem to have overcompensated a bit.In photos, it looks like some kind of weird, clear lagoon running the length of the resort s main beach. Upon further inspection, yes, it is actually a swimming pool, and the sheer numbers associated with it boggle the mind. Covering 20 acres, the pool is over 900 meters (3,000 ft) long (the second longest, in Morocco, is a measly 137 meters). Its deep end is 35 meters (115 ft) also a world record and it holds 66 million gallons of water. Also, it could engulf 20 Olympic sized swimming pools, took five years and nearly $1 billion to build, and costs about $2 million yearly to maintain. .....
Cave
21. In 2009, a local farmer brought a group of British explorers to the entrance of a cave he had found years earlier in Vietnam s Phong Nha Ke Bang National Park. They were excited at the prospect of finding a new cave system, but what they found was an underground river running along the floor of the single largest cave passage that has yet been found.Take another look at the above image; in case you missed it, there s a caver standing on the rock near the middle of the frame. Note that you cannot see the cavern s ceiling above him. The cave is in a very remote region previous cave seeking expeditions to the area likely came very close to finding it, but the terrain is exceedingly difficult. At least five kilometers (three miles) long, the cavern boasts natural skylights (where weaker limestone has washed away) and spectacular ceilings nearly 300 meters (1,000 ft) high. .....
Vacuum Chamber
22. Vacuum chambers are used to recreate the conditions of space: to see, for instance, how matter clumps together in the absence of gravity or to test components of space suits. There are some very large ones out there, but only one so large that it s capable of performing environmental testing on acompletely assembled spacecraft: the Plum Brook chamber in Sandusky, Ohio. .....
Waterfall
23. Inga Falls, along the Congo in Kinshasa, Zaire, is certainly not the tallest waterfall in the world. Heck, it s not even close its longest drop is a measly21 meters(70 ft). (There are three waterfalls in the world with drops over 3,000 feet, to put that in perspective.) At four kilometers (2.5 mi) wide, it may not be the widest of falls, either but it moves more water than any other waterfall on the planet. A lot more, as it turns out. .....
Salt Flats
24. The Salar de Uyuni ( Uyuni Salt Flat ) lies atop an extremely high plateau in southwestern Bolivia at almost 3,600 meters (12,000 ft), the elevation is twice as high as mile high Denver, Colorado. The salt is as thick as the air is thin (several meters thick, in most places), and the sheer surface area is astonishing over10,000 square kilometers(4,000 square miles). .....
Zoo
25. When it comes to naming the world s largest zoo, there s more than one way to skin a...to calculate such a thing: by area, by the number of species on display, or a matrix involving both. The latter actually makes the most sense at 12,000 acres, Red McCombs Wildlife in Texas could be considered the largest zoo by acreage, but only hosts about 20 species. .....
Power Station
26. For almost 20 years, the Chinese government forged ahead with the Three Gorges Dam project, despite concerns both at home and abroad about its potential ramifications. The threats to the surrounding environment and historical areas, to say nothing of the tens of thousands of locals displaced by the project, were all downplayed by officials throughout the dam s construction. Only after its completion, at an estimated cost of $23 billion, did China admit that perhaps there were somevalid environmental concerns. .....
Video Screen
27. Arena Corinthians in Sao Paulo, Brazil is a big building. Nearing completion at the time of this writing, it seats nearly 50,000 and will be the 11th largest stadium in Brazil, when it plays host to several FIFA World Cup football matches in 2014.
