Insane Coincidences You Wont Believe Actually Happened America's Freak Luck During the Battle of Midway The Battle of Midway may be remembered as one of the most spectacular naval battles in history and one of the huge turning points in the Pacific theater, but it started out as a pure clusterfuck for the Americans. Despite going into battle with most of Japan's game plan in their pocket thanks to American codebreakers/Bothan spies, the U.S. Navy had little to show for it in the early hours of June 4, 1942. Just about every aircraft that took on the Japanese that day was destroyed, and all without delivering any serious damage. In short, the Battle of Midway started off like the Battle of Endor, only with every fighter in the Rebel Fleet crashing into the Death Star's deflector shield. Where it Gets Weird: There was one squadron of American dive bombers lead by Lieutenant Commander C. His squadron started dropping like flies until, in an act of sheer luck that would make even J.K.

Over or Under? The Great Toilet Paper Debate When you really think about it, most of the things we love most about the modern world have been given to us by engineers. Cars, computers, and even awesomely unstable-looking treehouses have all been achievements of that singular science known as engineering. Some feats of engineering, however, though no less ubiquitous than the others, are overlooked because of their serene simplicity and unassuming demeanor. Toilet paper is one of these inventions. Perfectly suited to its one and only task, toilet paper is the unsung hero of daily living. Unfortunately, the brilliant engineers who came up with toilet paper left one problem unsolved: the problem of orientation. Click for Full-Size Image: [Source:] Embed this Image on Your Site:

Od geocentričkog sustava svijeta do suvremene kozmologije « E-škola astronomije | Zvjezdarnica Zagreb (Dr. sc. Dragan Roša) Premda još uvijek ne znamo odgovoriti na mnoga pitanja vezana uz svemir i položaj Zemlje u njemu, naša saznanja sve su bogatija. Tako znademo da je svemir ispunjen mnoštvom galaktika odnosno galaktičkih jata. Gotovo svaka galaktika sadrži milijarde zvijezda. Gotovo kod svih starih naroda nalazimo predodžbe o izgledu i postanku svijeta. Da bi objasnio gibanja nebeskih tijela, Aristotel prihvaća Eudoksovu ideju o mehaničkom sustavu vrtećih koncentričnih sfera, koje nose nebeska tijela. Aristotel je također tvrdio da su sva tijela unutar Mjesečeve staze građena od četiri “elementa”: zemlje, zraka, vode i vatre. Nepuno stoljeće nakon Aristotela po prvi put se pojavljuje ideja da je Sunce središnje tijelo našeg planetnog sustava. Aristarhova genijalnost možda se najbolje očituje po tome što je nepromijenjen položaj zvijezda tijekom godine tumačio time da je njihova sfera beskonačno velika u odnosu na veličinu Zemljine staze oko Sunca. Aristotelova slika svijeta.

Check this out on our Partner Network Michel Lotito A Cessna 150, one of the more famous items Lotito ate over his lifetime. His performances involved the consumption of metal, glass, rubber and other materials. He disassembled, cut-up, and consumed bicycles, shopping carts, televisions, a Cessna 150,[2] and other items. The Cessna 150 took roughly two years to be "eaten", from 1978 to 1980. He began eating unusual material as a teenager around 16 years of age and performed publicly from 1966. Lotito claimed not to suffer ill effects from consuming the materials, even after consuming materials usually considered poisonous. Lotito died of natural causes on June 25, 2007, ten days after his 57th birthday. Lotito's method for eating all of this metal was to break it into small pieces before attempting to eat it.
