Wondrous landmarks you've seen in history books and in the background of some of your favorite cinema have an allure that makes you want to visit in person.


Seeing something breathtaking like the Grand Canyon or the Eiffel Tower is definitely impressive and simply cannot be taken in by merely looking at a photograph.

And then there are those landmarks that just leave you feeling disappointed and taking the obligatory "been there done that" selfie.

In all deference to Leonardo da Vinci, seeing the Mona Lisa in person was disappointing due to its miniature size. For me, the Louvre Museum itself was more awe-inspiring than the anticipatory main event.

Curious to hear about the impression of strangers, Redditor PSpen88 asked:

"What famous landmark have you been to that was completely underwhelming?"

Four Corners

"The Four Corners in the US. It's just a concrete circle in the desert. Like, idk what else I expected, but I was disappointed."

Grimfey

Plymouth Rock

"Plymouth Rock stinks. Just go to the Lobster Pot and get the fried plate and that will make your day a whole lot better."

Walk Of Fame

"Hollywood walk of fame. Such a dirty place full of homeless people, weirdos and rappers trying to sell you their CD. Really doesn't live up to the hype."

Vegas

"The Las Vegas welcome sign. I thought it would be a lot taller."

Redditor_2017

"Not saying you shouldn't go and make up your own mind, but Las Vegas is very trashy; an entire city devoted to gambling and strip clubs was never pretending to be anything else."

PanamaNorth

Over-hyped Bakeries

"Essentially every famous bakery or restaurant I've been to in the US/Canada with a massive line out the door. The longer the line, the sh!ttier it is."

Copenhagen Mermaid

"The statue of The Little Mermaid in Copenhagen. Seriously, I had bigger action figures as a kid."

WalkTheFleetRoad

Alamo

"I live in San Antonio and everytime I walk or drive by the Alamo its pretty wack."

"Man! I thought the Alamo was going to be a beastly bastard. It's like the size of a middle class house."

People Share TV Shows From Their Childhood That No One Seems To Remember
Hanna-Barbera Cartoons

When I was a kid, I would occasionally watch this show called Big Bag. It went off the air more than 20 years ago and it seemed to only play at five or six in the morning. If I happened to wake up early, I'd catch it. It was targeted toward preschool viewers and was fun and silly, a partnership between Cartoon Network and what is now the Sesame Workshop.

Sometimes I wonder if I'm the only person who remembers it existed. But I'm not the only one with this kind of dilemma.

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor LegitimateMangoHeir asked the online community,

"What's a show from your childhood that no one else seems to remember?"

Finding the right pajamas can be a fairly stressful ordeal.

Which is perhaps why some people choose to forgo pajamas all together, and sleep in the nude.

No doubt saving people hundreds of dollars on what they might otherwise have spent on a pair of pajamas.

But in addition to being economical, people no doubt have countless reasons for their natural choice of sleepwear.

Or lack thereof.

Redditor -TheMidpoint- was curious to hear why people opted to sleep in the buff, leading them to ask:

"People who sleep naked, why?"
