The Miracles Of Life
I’m fairly certain that every one of us has experienced something in our lives that simply couldn’t be explained away by common sense or rational – like seeing a ghost, hearing noises coming from a vacant house or having Donald Trump be elected the 45th president of the United States.
These are instances that seemingly cannot be explained away via normal reasoning, which is why many people refer to them as “miracles” or “supernatural occurrences.”
But science – always being the voice of reason – set out on a mission to explain why we see things that aren’t really there or why we feel things that truly can’t be explained by the untrained eye.
Here are 5 of the creepiest scientific experiments that were able to deduce the phenomena of inexplicable events.
Except for Donald Trump. Science simply cannot explain that one.
About 78.4% of people hate Christmas and holiday shopping – a statistic I completely made up just now, but it sounds about right.
Between the crowds, the parking, the lines, the incessant music, and the pushy people – shopping around Christmas is nothing short of a nightmare.
Luckily, e-commerce platforms like Amazon, Ebay, and Etsy are taking a lot of the hassle out of holiday shopping. You don’t even have to put on pants to buy all your friends and family holiday gifts and have them delivered right to your house.
And this holiday season, Amazon is breaking out the big guns by offering free shipping to people with purchases under $25 – an incentive they haven’t offered until this year.

Oldest Living People on Earth
Two Bolivian seniors may be the oldest living people on Earth. Zenon and Julia are each allegedly 118 years old, born in the year 1900. If Zenon’s age is verified, that would make him the oldest male ever to have lived.
Meanwhile, Julia celebrated her big 118 in late October. At a party in her honor, Mama Julia serenaded her admirers on the charango, a kind of lute. Then she tucked in to a healthy serving of one of her favorite foods, cake.
