There is a page on FB with tons of "unbelievable facts" I wanted to share some of the ones that I enjoy, for those that need a break, or just for
fun, and a bit of information... enjoy and relax!
Lichtenberg Figures: The Fractal Patterns of Lightning Strike Scars.
Being struck by lightning is a dangerous and scary experience and can even be fatal. Sometimes, the electrical discharge can leave a tattoo-like
marking or scar known as a Lichtenberg figure. The patterns created are known to be examples of fractals.
Lichtenberg figures are branching electric discharges that sometimes appear on the surface or the interior of insulating materials. They are named
after the German physicist Georg Christoph Lichtenberg, who originally discovered and studied them. When they were first discovered, it was thought
that their characteristic shapes might help to reveal the nature of positive and negative electric “fluids”.

Earthworms form herds and make "group decisions", scientists have discovered.
The earthworms use touch to communicate and influence each other's behaviour, according to research published in the journal Ethology.
By doing so the worms collectively decide to travel in the same direction as part of a single herd.
The Devils Pool.
There are some freaky currents going on at the Victoria Falls which make it possible to sit/swim right at the edge. It's called the Devil's
A famous feature is a naturally formed pool known as the Devil's Pool, near the edge of the falls, accessed via Livingstone Island in Zambia. When
the river flow is at a certain level, usually during the months of September to December, a rock barrier forms a pool with little current and some
people swim in the pool.Occasional deaths have been reported when people slip over the edge of the rock barrier.

The Hutchison Effect refers to the number of eerie phenomena that occurred when inventor John Hutchison attempted to replicate a few of inventor
Nickola Tesla’s experiments. Some of the strange events witnessed include levitation, fusion of objects completely different in matter (such as wood
and metal), and disappearances of some smaller objects. Even stranger is that after his experiment, Hutchison was unable to repeat the project again
with the same results. This experiment was so popular it even sparked the interest of NASA and the Military, both whom have failed to produce the
Lincolns Secret Message.
Lincoln carried around a secret message in his pocket watch
The Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History announced it has found a “secret” message engraved in President Abraham Lincoln’s watch
by a watchmaker who was repairing it in 1861 when news of the attack on Fort Sumter reached Washington, D.C.
In an interview with The New York Times April 30, 1906, 84-year-old Jonathan Dillon recalled that he was working for M.W. Galt and Co. on Pennsylvania
Avenue in Washington, where he was repairing Lincoln’s watch. The owner of the shop announced that the first shot of the Civil War had been fired.
Dillon reported that he unscrewed the dial of the watch, and with a sharp instrument wrote on the metal beneath: “The first gun is fired. Slavery is
dead. Thank God we have a President who at least will try.” He then signed and dated the inscription and closed the dial. Dillon told The New York
Times in 1906 that to his knowledge, no one ever saw the inscription.

AND THE WEIRDEST ONE YET......
Around 14 people get raped by Dolphins each year.
Researchers studying dolphin behavior have been noticing an alarming trend in recent years. They have discovered rogue packs of adult male dolphins
gang raping swimmers in open waters. Human decoys fitted with tracking devices have been dumped in open waters and observed from helicopter.
Scott Randleston of the Dolphin Research Institute of Boca Raton, has been studying dolphin behavior for 17 years, and came up with the decoy program.
“In every case the decoy was set upon in a short time by groups of dolphins ranging from 8 to 20 young males. It seems there are gangs of dolphin
predators roaming the open waters looking for humans to sexually assault. The dolphins in each case were observed circling the swimmer as one of the
group grabbed them with their penis and dragged them under, then the others followed. You see dolphins have a prehensile penis, it is full of powerful
muscles and they can wrap it around objects, such as a human wrist, ankle, neck, or waist. One could compare it to a boa constrictor or an elephant
trunk….The decoys never resurfaced in any of the studies…. We tracked one of the decoys to an underwater cave where it had been repeatedly raped
and torn apart by the dolphins. ”
There are at least 14 cases of dolphin rape reported each year in the United States, these usually occur near the shore where victims are able to
escape before they can be dragged into a dolphin rape cave.
