  • - Bet you thought you could go pretty much

  • anywhere didn't ya?

  • uh-uh.

  • So we live in a world that's more accessible than ever.

  • Advancements in technology and travel

  • make going anywhere in the world

  • more accessible for more people than ever before.

  • However, this ease of access doesn't apply to everywhere.

  • In fact, there are some places

  • that no matter how hard you try,

  • you will never be able to visit.

  • These places are so entwined in secrecy

  • that very little is known about their inner workings

  • and what actually happens there.

  • So this week, I gathered

  • the most exclusive and secretive places on Earth

  • that, despite your best efforts,

  • you will never be able to enter, sorry.

  • So here they are,

  • ten forbidden places you're not allowed to visit.

  • Number one is White's Gentlemen's club.

  • Located in London, England

  • is the most exclusive gentleman's club in London,

  • and possibly the most exclusive in the world.

  • The clubs members include only

  • the richest and most powerful of society's elite,

  • including Prince William, Prince Charles, Conrad Black,

  • and even former prime ministers.

  • Originally built in 1674,

  • it's an all boys club only accepting men.

  • It has three stories,

  • including a basement, and an attic,

  • and several rooms within.

  • These rooms are often used to hold private

  • and secretive events that the public is never privy to.

  • And members often use these rooms to engage

  • in other activities, such as high stakes betting.

  • In order to even get close to the club,

  • let alone join it's ranks,

  • you need to know someone that's already a member.

  • Or you could just master their secret password,

  • which is probably just "I bathe in money".

  • Make sure you twist the evil villain mustache or,

  • you're not getting in.

  • Number two is area 51.

  • Located in the state of Nevada,

  • the infamous Area 51 is, by far,

  • one of the most well known

  • and least accessible places on Earth.

  • According to the CIA,

  • the official names for the facility

  • are "Homey Airport" or "Groom Lake".

  • To this day, the bases primary purpose

  • is still publicly unknown,

  • as the government has never disclosed it.

  • The public has never been allowed inside,

  • which has led to tons of wild speculation.

  • Non-conspiracy theorists generally believe that the base

  • is used to develop and test new aircrafts

  • and weapon systems.

  • However, conspiracy theorists generally believe

  • that that's simply a front,

  • and that Area 51 is actually a hub

  • of intergalactic activity, where testing of

  • and communication with extraterrestrial life is commonplace.

  • All of this intense secrecy and theorizing

  • has made it's way into pop-culture

  • through shows like "The X-Files", and "Roswell",

  • as well as several movies.

  • Of course, all of these tin-foil hat freaks need to chill,

  • because aliens don't exist

  • and you should simply stop asking questions.

  • [voiceover] - This message sponsored by the CIA.

  • - Number 3

  • is the Jiangsu National Security Education Museum.

  • Located in Nanjing, China is a very special museum

  • that has some extremely restrictive rules

  • as to who can enter.

  • Displayed here is a range of documents and gadgets

  • dating all the way back from 1927,

  • that have been deemed too sensitive

  • for anyone that is not Chinese,

  • thus foreigners are forbidden from entering.

  • Those who were born in China

  • are severely restricted once inside.

  • No photography is allowed in this museum,

  • which is said to hold spy gear

  • such as guns disguised as lipstick,

  • hallowed out coins that hide documents,

  • and decks of cards that hide maps.

  • Unfortunately, very little else is known

  • about the contents of this building

  • due to China's policy that the museum

  • is for Chinese citizens only.

  • Which is odd, because the Chinese travel, right?

  • So, somebody knows something.

  • Somebody spill the beans, we gots to know.

  • Number four is the Metro-2.

  • Located in Moscow, Russia

  • is the Metro-2, an informal name

  • given to the purported secret underground metro system.

  • It was supposedly built and code named "D-6"

  • during the reign of Josef Stalin.

  • The length of the Metro-2

  • is rumored to exceed that of the public metro,

  • have four lines, and lie 200 meters underground.

  • It's believed to be operated by the Ministry of Defence,

  • and connects the Kremlin to the Federal Security Service,

  • as well as several other important branches of government.

  • Several reports exist

  • as to the discovery of this transit line

  • by urban exploration groups.

  • This has also, reportedly,

  • been confirmed by documents obtained

  • by United States military intelligence,

  • however, it has never 100% been proven to exist.

  • Of course the "Metro-2" is just one

  • of the many names they considered,

  • including the "Rush-In Train", and the "No Stalin".

  • Thank you, I'll be here all week.

  • Number five is Room 39.

  • Located in North Korea,

  • as oh so many shady things are,

  • Room 39 is a secretive organization

  • that maintains the foreign currency slush-fund

  • for the country's leader.

  • They hold as much as five billion dollars in funds,

  • and have been suspected to be involved

  • in illegal activities such as counterfeiting money,

  • illicit weapon sales, and drug production.

  • It's believed to be located

  • inside the Ruling Worker's Party building

  • in Pyongyang, not far from Kim Jung Un's villa.

  • However, it's believed that this organization

  • is critical to Kim Jung Un's continued power,

  • enabling him to buy political support

  • and fund North Korea's nuclear program.

  • Despite overwhemling concern about Room 39

  • from the international community,

  • North Koreans remain unconcerned

  • because as soon as Kim Jung Un flashes that adorable smile,

  • everyone just melts.

  • Or else.

  • Number six is the Coca Cola Recipe Vault.

  • The world of Coca Cola interactive exhibit

  • in Atlanta, Georgia is a destination frequented by tourists.

  • However, not everything there can be seen by the public.

  • Within the exhibit is a dedicated vault

  • that holds a secret held since 1886,

  • the coveted secret recipe for Coca Cola.

  • After Doctor John S. Pemberton invented Coca Cola in 1886,

  • the formula has been kept a close secret.

  • It was only ever shared with a small group of people

  • and never written down.

  • That is, until it was eventually put to paper

  • and kept at Sun Trust Bank since 1925,

  • until it was moved to this new location in 2010.

  • To this day, the full formula is only known

  • by approximately three people,

  • unlike Pepsi's formula,

  • which is probably in the hands

  • of some warehouse manager somewhere named Craig.

  • Craig's a good dude.

  • Number 7 are Google's data centers.

  • Unlike the rest of the places on this list,

  • Google's data centers exist all over the world,

  • and can only be accessed by a select few,

  • and certainly not the public.

  • These massive centers are loaded

  • with hundreds of thousands of servers, colorful cables,

  • and bicycles, so that engineers can get around quickly.

  • Each of these locations represents a hub of information

  • where google processes internet search requests,

  • stores Youtube clips like this one,

  • and distributes emails for millions of its users.

  • They are highly secure locations

  • that store unbelievable amounts of user information.

  • The high security is necessarry

  • as such large amounts of information,

  • if fallen into the wrong hands,

  • could have catastrophic consequences for millions of people

  • in an increasingly digital world.

  • Yet, aside from hackers,

  • the real threat to the data center

  • remains a carelessly thrown magnet

  • that threatens to wipe away

  • all of those beautiful cat videos on Youtube

  • that we've come to love.

  • Or else.Practice magnet safety my friends.

  • Number eight is the Chapel of the Ark of the Covenant.

  • Found in Ethiopia is a chapel that's believed by some,

  • to be the final resting place of the Ark of the Covenant,

  • that holds the Ten Commandments.

  • The legendary ark is protected by a single high priest,

  • who is charged with it's care and preservation.

  • Interestingly, he's the only one who is allowed

  • to actually look at the ark

  • and is the only one who knows how to locate it

  • within the chapel.

  • He's never allowed to leave the chapel

  • and will name a successor on his deathbed.

  • No one from the public has ever seen the artifact

  • and no one is allowed to enter the church to view it.

  • Because of the amount of secrecy around it,

  • many question the legitimacy

  • of the ark actually residing at the chapel,

  • despite all major news sources reporting on it,

  • including CNN.

  • But hey, some guy from Ethiopia said it's there

  • and if some guy says it, it has to be true.

  • Pfft, obviously.

  • Number nine is the Javari Reserve.

  • Located in Brazil is the Javari Reserve,

  • the largest concentration

  • of uncontacted tribes in the world.

  • According to satellite imagery, at least eight tribes exist,

  • with as many as 14 potentially existing.

  • The reserve itself, is a swath of Amazon jungle

  • half the size of Florida.

  • Both the Brazilian and Peruvian governments

  • strictly regulate who may visit the reservation

  • with very few being allowed.

  • But even if somehow you did manage to visit them,

  • they would be threatened

  • by the foreign germs that you carry.

  • You, know, when I think of this tribe,

  • I really can't help but think of the bumblebee tuna scene

  • from "Ace Ventura, Pet Detective".

  • The difference is,

  • that you would pose a serious threat them

  • and they would probably kill you. So, not as funny.

  • And number ten the Bank of England Vaults.

  • Located in London, England is the central bank

  • for the United Kingdom.

  • The model from which most modern banks have been based upon.

  • However, beneath the city is the vault,

  • a massive space greater than that

  • of the third tallest building in the city, Tower 42.

  • There are sever security measures

  • that make sure that the vault is extremely hard to get into,

  • including keys that open it that are 91 centimeters long.

  • Making it even more difficult to enter,

  • is that even if you wanted the keys,

  • you wouldn't know from whom to take them from,

  • because the employees of the vault are kept anonymous.

  • The near impossibility of entering this vault

  • is a necessity, as a near 156 trillion pounds

  • worth of gold deposits exists there.

  • So unless you're psychic or can carry around

  • a few 91 centimeter keys without being noticed,

  • you're not getting in there. Sorry.
