It’s impossible to find all the hidden gems on the site, but we gave it a shot, and the results are incredible. These are the strangest of the strange. Some of them are dark, while other’s are flat-out confusing, which will ensure everyone’s satisfaction. Enjoy.
The “Human Lightning Rod”
Roy Sullivan was a United States park ranger who was hit by lightning an incredible seven times. That’s seven different occasions that Sullivan was presumably chosen by Zeus and struck. Kidding, but he did earn the nickname “The Human Lightning Rod.”
