From people and plants to cars and buildings, time eventually wears everything out. Sometimes it takes weeks or months, other times it can take years or decades, but eventually everything begins to crumble beneath the unstoppable pressure of Father Time.

Check out this fascinating list to see what we mean. Compiled by Bored Panda, the pictures below contain everything from marble floors worn down by feet to kitchen knives that have almost lost their blades due to years of constant use. Don't forget to vote for your favorite, and feel free to add to the list!

Footprints Are Carved Into The Floorboards By Monk Who Has Prayed At The Same Spot For 20 Years

Footprints Are Carved Into The Floorboards By Monk Who Has Prayed At The Same Spot For 20 Years

Reinhard Krause Report

Marlowe Fitzpatrik 1 year ago

Wood doesn't work that way. It would only be worn down if the monk hat moved a lot over that place, but he didn't . Just standing on wood wouldn't make dents - it might lower a section, but not carve out footprints. Especially not the toes! there's no weight on a toe, how would it indent so far down that you would spot the individual ones? Sorry- I call "fake" for this.
