Secret cinema found beneath Paris.
In September 2004, French police discovered a hidden chamber in the catacombs under Paris. It contained a full-sized movie screen, projection equipment, a bar, a pressure cooker for making couscous, a professionally installed electricity system, and at least three phone lines. Movies ranged from 1950s noir classics to recent thrillers.
When the police returned three days later, the phone and power lines had been cut and there was a note on the floor: “Do not try to find us.” (via)

Because this is undeniably one of the cutest things you have ever seen. I found out about this from one of Cracked.com’s 17 More Images You Won’t Believe Aren’t Photoshopped. Check under heading 11.
These particular images can be found on the artist’s website.
PS: The images above are from the duck set afloat in Osaka. The artist made a number of these though, and set them floating in Auckland, Hasselt, St Nazaire, Sao Paulo, Elst, Rotterdam, Amsterdam (twice), Nürnberg, and Wassenaar. They all vary in size, but the St Nazaire duck is over twice as large as any other.
