Default Odd Facts Thread

Just post strange facts here! They must be facts (in other words, true), and sufficiently bizarre. No Chuck Norris facts.

1. A woman named Vesna Volovic was an airplane stewardess in the 70s. One day, terrorists decided to blow up the plane she was on. In midair. She somehow, although with multiple broken bones and going into a coma, survived both the exploding plane and the 33,000 foot fall onto the mountain below during the middle of the winter. If you need help picturing the height she fell from, take the Empire State Building. Then multiply it by 26. Her first comment out of the coma was "Anyone got a cigarette?" She was paralyzed, but has since regained her ability to walk, and is now perfectly fine, left only with a very dramatic story to tell her children and grandchildren.

2. A man in Oregon was depressed and attempted to commit suicide. So, after picking through his possessions, he found a nailgun. A little bit later, he drove himself to the hospital with 12 nails embedded in his head and complained of a headache.

3. Alexis Goggins and her mother were kidnapped by her mother's boyfriend in 2008. The boyfriend shot the mother twice before Alexis interfered, crying and begging him to stop. The boyfriend then shot her 6 times, at least 2 of which hit Alexis in the head. Alexis was 7 years old when that happened. And she's still alive and well today.

Ah. And also, note the odd part in the name. This is a thread for facts that are sufficiently strange, not irrevelant facts. For instance, there are 1,000+ people who are the youngest on a forum. Almost everyone has a vestigial tail.

11. You can survive (barely) for 7 days in California after having driven off the side of a road on a bottle of water and a package of Tim Hortons doughnuts. Really, I read it in a book.

Helium is the only element to not become a solid at 0 degrees kelvin. It remains a liquid.
