    Amazing....but true.
    Black cattle painted in a zebra stripe pattern will receive fewer fly bites when pastured outside. They actually announced this recently!

      I told her to keep quiet about that.

        As a kid I managed to get myself accidently pictured in a postcard of Looe Harbour, Cornwall. Amazing but true....

          Total amount of beer consumed at the 2018 Oktoberfest in Munich -- a record 7.5 million Liters.

          Amazing....but true.

            Hello Harry,

            I think you may have misunderstood the title of this thread. It is amazing...but true. Not amazing...and I wish to God it were true.

              Maybe more 'quite interesting' than Amazing...but true, but I recently discovered that mobile homes are so called because they were originally produced by a company in the town of Mobile, Alabama, rather than the fact that they are...well, mobile.

                  They're apparently expecting a hurricane at present (if "Nestor" develops as they fear) so sadly, mobility might be more of an issue than you think...

                    Fascinating stuff. I don't think the Mobile company was the original maker, though, because before they were called mobile homes, they were known as "trailer houses"... (not particularly) amazing, but true.

                      This article from the New York Times details something odd physicists have discovered recently: Some the tiniest particles in the universe are no longer behaving in the way they have been observed to behave. This may mean that The Laws of Physics aren't hard and fast. If so, is the Universe stable??

                      Amazing... but true.

If you recall before the Good Friday Agreement TV stations would not use the voice of Sinn Fein leader Gerry Adams. They showed him talking but his words were always read out by an actor. The actor was Paul Loughran who played Butch Dingle on TV in Emmerdale.

                        and who sounded exactly like Gerry Adams anyways..

                          I guess the moral here is don't believe the book's cover-- or the inscription on the sarcophagus. A mummy of a "male priest" turns out to be that of a pregnant woman, perhaps the first discovered.

                              Physicists at the Lawrence Livermore Lab have discovered that pulses of light inside plasma can go both slower than the standard speed of light-- and faster. This means improved lasers may be possible, perhaps even helping with clean fusion.

                                fascinating but not sure i understand. while light can be slowed down, such as passing through a medium, it cant cant go faster than the speed of light when traveling through space/medium of any kind.

                                The only loop hole ive heard of is the possibility of the universe as a whole expanding faster than the speed of light and the quantum affect of entanglement, where a measurement on one entangled particle instantaneously has an affect on the other entangled particle (Einsteins spooky action at a distance). But this is can be possibly explained by a change in one part of a system (the entangled particles) affects the whole system immediately-but no info is actually traveling from one particle to the other at faster than light.
