What are your favorite weird, but true facts?
« on: September 12, 2017, 01:41:36 pm »
I've seen this question get a lot of interesting responses on other sites, so I figured it wouldn't hurt to share here.

I wish more people would talk about the 1932 Emu War. There was an attempt made to control the population of emus, and the people sent were armed with military weapons. Regardless of this, the emus still "won."

Epcot (the Disney theme park) was originally supossed to be a functioning city. It's just a really weird concept and idk how it would have worked but that's what Walt envisioned before he died

The ocean has more dead bodies than every cemetery in the world combined.

There is a Marvel character named Death's Head who has made appearances in Transformers and Doctor Who, connecting the three universes.

Butterflies don't only eat (drink?) fruit, but they also feast on blood, feces and tears! o:

There have been numerous cases of people dumping loved ones ashes at various spots in Disney world. The most popular for some odd reason, being the haunted mansion.

In Salem, Massachusetts, there was a pirate who was killed after being struck by lightning. He was buried beneath a tree, and since then the same tree's been struck by lightning three times.
