FUN FACT FOR YOU:Share this with your friends... they'll think you're really smart!
For 100 years, maps have shown an island that doesn't exist. Almost nothing is known about Sandy Island, a land mass about the size of Manhattan in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Australia. Supposedly, explorer James Cook discovered it in 1876, and it began appearing on nautical maps in 1908. It wasn't until 2012, when a team of Australian scientists set out to survey the island, that they discovered there was no island there at all. The scientists guessed that Cook may have in fact spotted a "pumice raft" of floating volcanic stone and gas. The Sydney Morning Herald even published an obituary for Sandy Island.

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by

Talk about funny money. A New Jersey man faces charges after using a fake $100 bill to pay a clerk at a gas station on Christmas Day. 20-year-old Thaimu Kargbo reportedly drove his BMW to an Exxon gas station on Dec. 25th. According to police, he got gas, then handed the clerk the fake $100. He later told cops he was “surprised” the gas station employee took the bill. While the faux cash does look like a traditional $100 note, on both sides in rather large lettering are the words, “For Motion Picture Use Only.” It also states, in smaller type, “This note is not legal, it is to be used for motion pictures.” During the investigation, the gas station’s owner realized that the suspect also had stolen gas from the station on the day before Thanksgiving. Detectives eventually tracked down Karbo and he turned himself in to police on Feb. 18th. He was charged with one count of theft and one count of fraud. (
