This is a pair of bullets that collided during the Gallipoli (Gelibolu) Campaign of the WWI. The bullets embedded into each other were found by a farmer plowing his fields seventy-five years after the battle had concluded in 1915. These bullets are displayed in the Naval Museum in the city of Çanakkale. The odds for collision of two bullets, each traveling close to 1,500 m/sec, are abysmally low. (In 1895 there were only two automobiles in the entire City of Cleveland, and they collided. That probability was much higher, considering the pedestrian speeds that such vehicles could travel in those days, than for two bullets traveling at supersonic speeds to collide.) The factor that must be considered is the astonishing density of bullets flying through the air in that horrific battle.

“Is that high-pitched voice really mine?” “Do I actually speak in such a shrill voice?” OR “There must be some problem with the recording instrument. This is definitely not my voice.” The reaction varies from an embarrassed grin to utter dismay to complete disbelief to outright rejection when you hear your recorded voice for the first time. You refuse to believe that the shallow, ear piercing sound is your own voice, the one you have been hearing all our lives. Sorry. There is nothing wrong with the recording equipment or the speakers. The problem lies in your head. Literally.
Water may be the elixir of life, but it sure can send your health into a tailspin, even endanger your life, if you drink too much of it.

Arnold Schwarzenegger – IQ 135. You can’t make this stuff up.
The typical history textbook has a lot of ground to cover and only so many pages to devote to anything before Jesus. For most of us, that means ancient history is a three-dog show—Egypt, Rome, and Greece. Which is why it’s easy to get the impression that, outside of those three, our map of the ancient world is mostly just blank space. But actually nothing could be further from the truth. Plenty of vibrant and fascinating cultures existed outside that narrow focus. Let’s fill in the blanks.
