13. Two hours after doctors pronounced him dead, a premature baby was brought back to life by his mother’s cuddles.
Kate Ogg gave birth to twins – a boy and a girl – at 27 weeks. When she was told that her son, who weighed 2 lbs, had not made it, she could not digest what had happened.
She picked him up and pressed him to her chest, told him that his name was Jaime and that he had a little sister and held him close to herself for two hours, when he miraculously started breathing.
A mother’s love brought her baby back from the dead.
14. Nature’s many mysteries! A species of frog, found in Alaska, completely freezes during the winter. While frozen, the frog stops breathing, its heart stops beating, its blood stops flowing, and it cannot move at all. However, when spring sets in, the frog’s body thaws and normal life continues.
15. Just a spoonful of matter taken from a neutron star would weigh more that Mt. Everest or 900 pyramids of Giza. That’s more than 5,500,000,000 mammoth tons.
16. A sheep in China gave birth to a ‘sheep dog’ that sharply resembles a dog and even plays like a hound!
Chinese farmer Liu Naiying was shocked when one of his sheep gave birth to an odd looking creature. The lamb looks a lot like a dog, despite being covered in wool. Mr. Liu admitted he was frightened at first, never having seen anything like this in the 20 years he has been raising sheep.
However, experts believe that it is unlikely that sheep and dogs can mate and that this is, instead, a one-off, miracle ‘abnormal lamb’.(source)
17. A prison in Brazil uses geese as an alarm system.
An overcrowded prison in Brazil has put in place a rather alarming security detail. It has employed two geese to alert security guards when convicts try to escape, as well as when violence breaks out.
Sobral prison warden Wellington Picanco said that the geese make a lot of noise when they sense ‘strange movements’.(source)
18. The school of your dreams actually exists. The Sudbury Valley School in Massachusetts, U.S., has done away with a prescribed curriculum and does not conduct tests or assign homework. In fact, no classes are held unless they are requested for, by students.
But here’s what’s surprising – 82% of these students get accepted to college, as opposed to the 63% national public school average.
