Alumni of Radboud University which is in Nijmegen, a city in the Netherland, has come out with a solution to students' examination pressure by digging a grave where students could meditate.

According to Citinewsroom.com, the grave is supposed to remind the students of the reality of death and make them value the time they have left on earth.

This, in turn, helps cope with the pressure that examinations bring.

One of the students named McLaughlin said that the grave experience has been greatly wished for by many students as there is always a tall list of people waiting to enter.

In the grave, there is a yoga mat and each person can only be allowed up to three hours to stay in it before the next person comes.

Ironically, the grave is located right behind a chapel which makes it interesting as chapels are where life is supposed to be given.

An inscription in the grave carries a rather interesting set of words that reads, "stay weird".

The grave, which is also known as a purification grave or a meditation grave, continues to give young people an idea of the last thing they usually think about- death and equips them with the ability to handle exams pressures more easily.

Meanwhile, a male police officer has been spotted in a viral video dancing with all his energy as though he would get paid handsomely, or better still, it would send him to heaven.
