today i learned – mon 3rd apr 2017

ok, so … today’s blog post is going to be a bit unbelievable but bear with me … because it’s also ridiculous and incredible and totally nuts πŸ‘πŸ» the best collection of things that can possibly happen πŸ˜‚

lets get into it – #tdil that it once rained frogs in mexico 😳🐸. like legit … i know how ridiculous that sounds but it totally did back in 1997 in villa angel flores, mexico.Β 

in fact, after further research into the matter, it isn’t just frogs that have fallen from the sky over the years (in lots of places … not just mexico). amazingly, there are genuine reports – in actual scientific journals and not just the daily mail and equivalent – of everything from baby alligators & fish to jellyfish and crabs πŸ¦€ falling from the sky onto the unsuspecting public.

the reports aren’t exclusive to just recent history either, there are all sorts of stories of it “raining animals” all the way back to ancient greece … that’s around 1,800 years ago 😱

right, i think it’s probably time for me to explain just how this mad phenomenon occurs … the actual reason isn’t all that mental and makes super total sense! (unlike that sentence). any guesses before i reveal all?

tornados and storm winds πŸŒͺ … despite how ridiculous all of the previous paragraphs were, doesn’t it all make total sense now?! (there’s every chance that you’d already guessed that and you weren’t all that amazed by this … i tend to take everything at face value until i’ve read on – i’m a bit naive like that πŸ™ˆ)

but yeah, apparently powerful winds and tornados have been known to be so mad that they suck all sorts of heavy and light objects into the sky (frogs aren’t all that heavy) and later rain then down upon unsuspecting citizens.

the aforementioned mexico 1997 example was supposedly caused by a tornado that sucked up a smeg load of frogs and water from a pond, before subsequently depositing them all over a random neighbourhood.

that’s all folks! pretty light one tonight πŸ‘πŸ» but the alice in wonderland vibes that “it’s raining frogs” caused instantly drew me in and i had to learn more πŸ˜‚. at least you now know that if it ever rains baby alligators, it isn’t the apocalypse … you’ve just been subject to a tornado πŸ‘πŸ» which, to be fair, is actually pretty bad in itself 😳 (although if it rained alligators around here i’d be worried … the midlands aren’t known for their reptilian population).

right, that’s it from me tonight πŸ‘€ broadchurch time πŸ’πŸΌ

charlie mike tango out, over πŸ™ƒ (that’s army for goodbye) #tdil
