Seeing Is Believing! 15 Things That'll Make You Doubt What You See!


People have done so many things in this world. We've done more bad than good, that's something we could all agree on but some of the things we've done are just plain hilarious. In history, we have lots of these. In this post, we put together some of them to show how far a joke could get or where concepts actually got their names from. Let's read them and have some fun!

1. A 34.5-mile (56-km) line can be drawn with a pencil.

2. The first female mayor of the United States was elected in 1887.

She was nominated by a group of men as a joke, but she became the mayor with more than 60% of the votes.

3. A woman in Ohio managed to not pay a parking ticket with a strange method.

The law lists several types of vehicles that cannot be parked longer than 24 hours, including a "motor vehicle camper," with the comma missing between "vehicle" and "camper."

Ms. Cammelleri said her pickup truck did not fit that definition.

4. A 14-year-old girl in North Korea drowned in the floodwaters while trying to save a photograph of her leaders.

5. In 1965, a four-year-old boy, who was about to drown, was rescued by a woman named Alice Blaise.

What makes this story interesting is that his uncle was shot to death and his suit had a bullet hole in it.

He conducted this experiment to make fun of the absurdity of the quantum mechanics.
