To attract tourists to their obscure locations, cities and towns around the world are building offbeat and often pointless landmarks. These range from the ridiculous, like the Cockroach Hall of Fame in Plano, Texas featuring Elvis the Cockroach (yikes!); to the fascinating Strange Mountain in Puhe City, China where gravity is said to flow backwards. Cult-ish landmarks have been created too, like the future birthplace of Captain Kirk of Star Trek fame in Riverside, Iowa.
