Published 3 years ago

Nowadays recycling and upcycling is becoming more and more popular – and it doesn’t just end with household items. Turns out that the same principles can be applied to real estate too! After all, why tear down a perfectly fine building if it can be repurposed into something else? However, not everyone goes the extra mile to disguise the original purpose of the buildings, often producing some pretty funny results.

The users of the /r/NotFoolingAnybody subreddit are sharing pictures of repurposed buildings that failed to hide their original purpose, and some of the results are pretty entertaining. From churches converted into nightclubs to dead malls turned into college buildings, check out some of the funniest building conversions submitted to this subreddit in the gallery below!

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
