Being of the first cities in the world to usher in the New Year, the city of Sydney in New South Wales, Australia, never fail to celebrate this occasion with some visually spectacular pyrotechnics.

Holy Cow… This Cow Stands Over 6’ Tall And Weighs As Much As A Car!

Most cows that are bred for their meat are destined for the abattoir. Hardly will they ever escape the slaughterhouse, but there are exceptions, like this unusually large Holstein Friesian, a breed of dairy cattle. This cow dude here has grown, like a lot, to reach a mind-blowing proportion of 194 centimeters tall (6 feet 4 inches) and tipping the scales at a grand 1.4 tonnes (1,400 kilograms, or about 3,086 lbs). The height is well over an average person’s height and the weight there… well, let’s just say that you don’t want to be standing next to it when it is feeling dizzy.

Mind Blown: Impossibly Geometric Icebergs Spotted In Antarctica

Our impression of icebergs are, they are of irregular shape, or so we thought. It turns out that nature is quite an architect herself with the ability to create impossibly geometric icebergs too, such as the one you see here. That’s right.
