Extra! Extra! Read all about it! Discover the most bizarre and surprising news stories that are hard to believe but totally true. These wacky gems are taken from real news stories on subjects you might expect to find in your local paper -- world news, sports, science, entertainment, food, travel, and more. Did you know that scientists invented a “salmon cannon” to catapult fish along their migration route? Or that a man traveled 1,800 miles across Europe eating garbage? Or that a herd of flatulent cows in Germany blew the roof off their barn? These amazing real-life stories prove that fact is often stranger than fiction.

                        That's the National Geographic style. In order for it to be attractive to readers, it has a bunch of facts in bold print.
