In 1993, lawyer Garry Hoy fell 24 floors to his death while demonstrating the tensile strength of his office windows to a group of visiting law students. Far from being an unusual incident, body-checking window safety was his signature and fatal move.
Hoy’s regular practice of hurling himself at window panels in front of onlookers and harmlessly bouncing off ended disastrously when it accidentally popped the glass out of its frame and sent “one of the best and brightest” lawyers plunging from the skyscraper.

In 2002, U.S. Special Forces were rumored to have killed a giant beast in the mountains of Kandahar with a red beard and hair, six fingers on each hand, and two sets of teeth — and the government’s allegedly been covering it up ever since.
But in 2016, one member of the task force that supposedly killed the giant gave an interview to a YouTuber detailing his experience. The man, called only Mr. K, described the giant as a Nephilim, a Biblical beast said to be the offspring of angels and humans that goes “against Darwin’s evolution” and “points back to the biblical prophetic narrative.” And despite years of silence, he told the interviewer that he chose to speak out once it became clear that the U.S. government had no intention of ever revealing the truth because “giants don’t match with the way we explain our world.”

Ever since the Japanese tsunami of 2011 killed more than 15,000 people, those living in the affected areas have reported countless sightings of “tsunami spirits.” Even when there’s been no rain, cab drivers have been hailed by soaking wet passengers believed to be ghosts of victims still drenched from the disaster.
One cab driver in Ishinomaki picked up a woman with soaking wet hair despite the sunny skies who asked to be taken to an area of the city now abandoned due to the tsunami. After a moment of silence, she asked “Have I died?” And when he turned back to look at her, there was no one there.

Cossack and Kazakhstan come from the same Turkish word kazak for nomad, adventurer or wanderer.
The cossacks were mostly Slavs who escaped serfdom but for a time they could have been anyone even Jews, Germans or Tatars. Anyone willing to live the free life on the plains.
Cossacks were formed around different Hosts like the Don or most famously Zaporizhan, which were like governments for cossacks with laws to follow, to keep the cossacks from descending in to too much anarchy.

Yup, Battle Fever J.

The third Sentai. Or first, Goranger and JakQ were included later as the official first two Sentais. The “Fever” in the title refers to Saturday Night Fever, as it was a popular thing at the time and was about dancing, which was an element in Battle Fever J. Battle Fever J was a coproduction with Marvel, the Red Ranger leader,Battle Japan, began as a Japanese equivalent to Captain America. Influences from Battle Fever J have continued to today, particularly the Red Ranger’s distinctive helmet design.

There’s an urban legend which states that Spongebob creator Stephen Hillenberg was approached by Viacom to make an adult version spinoff of his hit series for Spike TV, the same way that John Kricfalusi was approached to make an adult version of Ren & Stimpy, but he rejected it. This never happened during his lifetime and the rumors are untrue.
