If you’re looking for a cat meme, come back tomorrow.

If, however, you’re looking to have your mind blown, stick around for a little while.

Because in this big, beautiful, crazy, eff’d-up world, there’s no such thing as a dull moment. (I mean, have you seen the news lately??)

Okay, so, let’s back up for a second.

It’s pretty safe to say that at any moment in time, day or night, something is going down somewhere. FOMO! YOLO! It’s the end of times! And all that.

Point is, we human beings have seen some shit. Some of it good, some of it bad, and some of it ugly. (One time, Clint Eastwood even showed up).

Let these 28 iconic photos be a reminder that, whatever comes next, at least things (probably) can’t get any crazier than they already have.

1. Bye, bye, Berlin Wall. You will not be missed.

2. Meanwhile, in Chile, the wrath of God made an appearance Puyehue volcano erupted for the first time in 50 years.

Chile’s Puyehue volcano erupts, causing air traffic cancellations across South America, New Zealand, Australia and forcing over 3,000 people to evacuate.

People were – understandably – freaking out a little. Because regardless of your religious beliefs, don’t act like you wouldn’t be terrified to have literal fire and brimstone raining down on you.

Sure is pretty though.
