Welcome to /r/woahdude! Please take note of a few things:
We are NOT a "reaction subreddit".
We are NOT a subreddit about content that is merely interesting or amazing.
We are specifically made for psychedelic content, trippy or mesmerizing stuff that will make a sober person feel stoned, or stoned person trip harder!
Here is the full explanation of what belongs here. You'll notice our definition of trippy is more expansive than the obvious fractals and tie-dye concept, but there's a lot we exclude as well. If you post content that doesn't meet those criteria, it will be removed. Failure to accept these conditions is grounds for ban.
If you want examples that exemplify our purpose, check our WOAHDUDE APPROVED hall of fame. (note: list does not load correctly on some mobile apps)

Looks like R2D2 ramming a wolf from behind but I’m high
You may be high, but you are correct. That is exactly what it looks like, supposing they have both been sneezed on by the great snot-monster of Arterion 5, which could easily have happened.
Lmao, I think this may be the coolest representation of a picture ever
Where’s this guys gold? I’ll give if no one else is but it’s my last one
This is the college of winterhold, you can't fool me.
Have you made it there?
That isn't the College. Far too much of it is still out of the water.
People been...talking..about the college. Whispers of Necromancy..
Thank you I was hoping there’d be a winterhold reference
Was looking for this comment, not disappointed.
Been looking for this reply. Got something I’m supposed to deliver. Your eyes only.
At least they fixed the bridge after 80 frickn' years.
Serious question, what do they do after a storm like this? Do they just wait for the ice to melt or do they take flamethrowers to it?
Grew up on the Lake Michigan coast. You wait until spring, unless things have changed.
I would actually pay some YouTuber like Mr. beast to get a bunch of guys with flamethrowers and try to melt the ice off.
Tfw you are so rich you pay mr beast
Actually flamethrowers dont work at all for ice. It just takes way too much energy to melt.
Yea the flames also leave behind carbon to further insulate and pollute the ice. This is why fire being strong against ice makes no sense in video games when in reality it's the opposite.
Seems relative, a flame thrower against that much ice is like tossing an ice cube in a camp fire and hoping it puts the fire out.
Guys, I've told you a million fucking times, they're NOT. FLAMETHROWERS.
No worries nothing has changed
How does the thawing process not kill the lighthouse? Seems like it would rip it apart.
The lighthouse gets smashed by large waves thousands of times per year. I'm sure it can handle some ice thawing.
You just get the scraper from your trunk obviously.
Start your car, turn the heat up, take your shower, get dressed, eat breakfast, have your coffee, and then get your scraper
Must be nice to not have to worry about it being stolen lol. Its illegal to let your car run where i live for that reason.
No one lives in lighthouses anymore for the most part! Source: Am a Michigander
It'll take care of itself. My friends and I used to walk the iced over breakwalls after these storms all the time. Spring comes, it falls off, inspector checks it out, opens to tourists.
I was really confused and then I realized, oh right, michigan, freshwater.
Shit, but what a crazy storm to cause lake water to get that high. Another question, would somebody survive if they were inside the top of the lighthouse?
The Great Lakes are basically inland seas. They're called "lakes" because they are completely freshwater.
What’s funny is I was going to say sea, but I know somebody would correct me and say they’re called lakes.
Haha I feel that. Not to be a stickler about that either. Living in California, a lot people are genuinely surprised when I tell them that Lake Michigan has beaches, or that even an "express" ferry ride across the lake from Muskegon to Milwaukee takes almost 3 hours.
Another not so humble brag about the Great Lakes, is the Sandbanks Provincial Park in Lake Ontario. Often movies will film there because of the resemblance to Caribbean beaches.
Just gave this a google, looks unreal!
I've lived along lake Ontario for 20 years and only just discovered this lol thanks!
I guess if you don't know what a tropical beach looks like it kinda does...
Hence the word “resembles”, you can make the most unlikely locations something they’re not. Winnipeg is a good example, it’s been made to look like Chicago, Kansas, Michigan, Russia and many more in films.
So it works for like 95% of the general population?
Michigan has thousands of miles of beaches, and very expensive homes near most of them. Google 'Sleeping Bear Dunes' or Pictured Rocks or anywhere around Grand Traverse Bay. Some beautiful countryside
How ignorant are people to be surprised that a state made up of two peninsulas surrounded by the biggest lakes in the country has beaches? It's not just lake Michigan, there are hundreds (if not thousands) of miles of beach in Michigan, including some massive inland lakes as well.
Michigan has roughly the same amount of coastline as California, and I don't know if that even includes islands or inland lakes.
Fun fact, Michigan has the most registered boats of any state
Michigan has the most coastline of all 50 states.
To put that into perspective: Lake Michigan is bigger than Switzerland or Denmark and all five lakes combined have roughly the same area as the UK.
Honestly the Lakes are so massive they should be called seas. Mini oceans over here lmao
Yeah, the Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald (and the song about it) on Lake Superior didn’t happen for no reason
Lake Superior is a different monster. The other four lakes get rowdy, but Superior’s weather is on an epic scale.
Also cold as fuck year round. Don’t screw about with Lake Superior, folks.
One of the more challenging songs to strip to and so rarely played in the clubs.
I grew up on Lake Michigan in Michigan and can confirm, the waters can get extremely dangerous. It's just like looking at the ocean it's beautiful. As a kid when I saw Jaws there was no way my mother could make me believe that a giant shark didn't live in those waters!
I always knew they were “big”... but I never really grasped how damn huge they are until I flew over them this summer.
Lake Superior is pretty much an inland sea
its basically an igloo at that point right? should be ok?
Wouldn’t you run out of oxygen? Also I’m now imagining being trapped in a lighthouse igloo and it’s terrifying
in that structure? Oxygen would last a long while.
also igloos do not use solid ice, but rather that settled snow a few days in. So there is still some trapped air, better insulating, easier carving
A properly constructed igloo also has a raised platform for sleep that is higher than the entrance so that heat can rise and gather while leaving an opening for fresh air to enter.
I would guess that even though the ice looks all-encompassing there are enough cracks in it to let in oxygen.
They are automated. No one is in them
I'm glad to know this now, I was anxious at the thought of anyone being trapped like that.
I was actually contemplating how cosy it would be.
Actually carbon dioxide poisoning would kill you before oxygen loss. For every 400 cubic feet of air in a room you have about 1 day. That's a 7' x 7' room with standard 8' ceilings. You would last about 4 days in a room that was 14' x 14'.
Water didnt get that high. It's a spray. Freezing little by little. I think if someone were occupying that lighthouse, they would fight it off as it built up on entry way/exit. Like on a fishing boat. Chip it away as it forms.
That's what the elevated walk way was for. To tend to the lighthouse in the winter. There is usually a living quarter further back from the end of the pier
The lighthouse is not as big as you think.
Honestly the storm probably wasnt super significant.
I grew up near this lighthouse in Petoskey and I would see massive waves crash over that cement walkway just on a fairly breezy day. A few years before I left there were a few storms in a row and eventually ice, big waves and time ended up creating a massive break in that walkway, something like 20ft I think.
The same thing could happen if it were salt water. The freezing point is a only a few degrees below that of fresh water.
Happens regularly during noreasters in New England. Sideways salty icicles.
I'm pretty sure that's where the Ice King lives... Steer clear princesses, he's a TOTAL CREEP...
No one sucks the life from my penguins except me... and maybe polar bears, because that's just nature, Gunter.
Hey now. Simon got over his whole abduction fetish eventually.
Thought someone carved a dwarven statue.
Too much warhammer TW
That means the Ice King lives in Manistee, MI. Which is fairly surprising
Not really. Ooo is more than likely in America.
Yep, in Daddy Daughter Card Wars you can see Charlie crossing roughly half the planet before arriving in Egypt. Of course that could be wrong considering the continents we see don't look like the ones we know, what with the GIGANTIC hole on the planet.
Ok Elsa, calm down
Who is that?
Everyones favorite step-sister.
Google her and enjoy
You thirsty mother fuckers...
I’m just playing, I’m totally going down that rabbit hole tonight
A lot of holes will be gone down upon.
I can’t watch professionals anymore. Amateurs have ruined porn for me.
Let it go.
Ain’t that from thor ragnarok
Ice shield, activate!
Oh boy i get to post my photoshop of this again!!!
For sure thought it was going to be Randy Marsh splooging.
This was better than anything I was expecting.
As a Michigander I can confirm that this is a lovely summers day
As a fellow Michigander, if it truly were summer there would be far more orange cones and road construction present.
Orange cones, yes, but actual road repair, no. Im pretty sure they just put up the cones as a decoy to make people think they're fixing them, because they never actually seem to get any better.
I always presumed they “constructed” the pot holes during that time.
It’s like negative space art.
TIL Michigan and Pennsylvania are the same state.
Obviously the picture above is of an average sized pothole, not a lake.
Seriously, how does all of the additional weight not compromise the integrity of the whole structure? That thing must be absolutely rock solid. Looks like the weight of the thing must have doubled.
I would imagine the freeze and thaw would do some damage, with different materials in the lighthouse expanding and contracting. But the weight might not be doing that much damage. The coverage is so extensive that the ice could be supporting itself.
Just a guess though.
Photographer is John McCormick from Michigan Nut Photography , a very good family friend and excellent photographer.
I know this post is old now but please make sure he gets the visibility he rightfully deserves.
Link to actual photo on his website for further proof.
You can’t fool me! There’s a quest item in the Keep of the lower picture.
Real question- does the lighthouse go out of service if this happens?
I don't know but since another redditor said they let it melt, I think it does.
Although, they could try to melt the important parts like the windows and access, lighthouses are not that important since the invention of GPS.
most if not all lighthouses in the us are no longer required because of gps and weather reports, they are usually just for display now.
I think this is St. Joseph lighthouse in Benton Harbor Michigan.
Also, higher res image of the ice https://imgur.com/a/bo71GMF
Not Benton Harbor, city is St. Joseph.
It is in St. Joseph. My friend got married at the museum/cultural center. And I knew these photos looked familiar. Beautiful area. I need to go back some time when the weather is nice.
I live about a 5 minute walk from this lighthouse!
My nephew was married there in August and yes the lighthouse is in st joe on Benton harbor
Gotta kill the Colossi, save my girlfriend.
Well if I have a sledgehammer and want to let off some steam, now I know where to go
Looks like the biFROST
The college of Winterhold
It demands a sacrifice.
Where’s the rod from the top of the first picture on the second picture?
Or or every road in Michigan after it rains anytime between October and May
This is reminding me of dark souls for some reason
This is the lighthouse is South Haven. My grandma lives there and I've walked on the pier since I could walk. I've walked on the frozen lake out to the lighthouse, but only ever seen the lighthouse like this in pictures. Please don't come to the beach in the summers haha. It's gotten crazy busy in the last 10 years and the beach is half the length due to higher water levels.
Edit: It's the lighthouse in St. Joe. I always confuse the two.
Actually this is St. Joseph.
It’s St. Joe, and the beach is at half length due to erosion, at least along most of the beaches there.
Looks like a crazy hairy dude holding onto the bridge
How the hell did lighthouse keepers clean the ice from around the light? Ice axe and a sledgehammer? That'd be one miserable ass job.
The fact that the ice looks wind swept is preety cool. I need to do some more traveling around michigan during the winter. I've lived here my whole life but haven't been to the shores during mid winter.
