There used to be hundreds of such bridges, scattered across the former Incan Empire. By some estimates there were as many as 200 of them, braided from nothing more than twisted mountain grass and other vegetation, with cables sometimes as thick as a human torso. These lasted for centuries, but as they wore out one by one, Spanish and later Peruvian bridges slowly replaced them.Today, there is just one Incan grass bridge left, the keshwa chaca, a sagging 90-foot span that stretches between two sides of a steep gorge, near Huinchiri, Peru. According to locals, it has been there for at least 500 years. Since the Incan Empire fell 441 years ago, they can’t be that far off.
In 1970, shortly after being elected Attorney General of Alabama, 29-year-old Bill Baxley reopened the 16th Street Church bombing case. The racially motivated act of terrorism, which killed four African-American girls in 1963, resulted in a fruitless investigation and marked a turning point in the…
That thing in the middle, that’s a warship. After most of the Allied Fleet was destroyed by the Japanese at the Battle of the Java Sea in February 1942, HNLMS Abraham Crijnssen's captain was ordered to escape with his ship to Australia. But, you know, the Japanese were still hunting them. So the crew moored her in a cluster of small islands, and covered her in greens and branches. From a distance, it was supposed to look like the Crijnssen was just another small island. And it worked!
The American Elm used to be everywhere in the US. It was wide, fast-growing, tall enough to leave lines untouched. The elm was the symbol of endurance until it was nearly wiped out by Dutch Elm Disease. Introduced accidentally in the 1930s, the disease spread through beetles and over fifty years killed all of America’s elms — 100 million trees. A Dutch elm disease-resistant tree was introduced since the 1990s. Perhaps one day, American streets will be lined with elms again.
In 1976, a Soviet pilor named Viktor Belenko defected by flying his MiG-25 “Foxbat” jet fighter to Hakodate, Japan. The USSR demanded the plane back. Japan complied but only after letting American engineers examine and test-run it. Japan then took it apart, shipped it back piece by piece, and billed the USSR $40,000 for shipping and labor costs!
