One man once survived two atomic bombs. Tsutomu Yamaguchi survived both nuclear attacks to Japan when the U.S. dropped atomic bombs during World War II. Yamaguchi, sent to Hiroshima on business on August 6th, 1945, saw the U.S. drop the first atomic bomb. Miraculously, he survived with burns across his face and arms, but made it home to Nagasaki. Three days later, the second atomic bomb hit, flattening Yamaguchi's home. Because his family was out finding ointments to treat his already existent burns, they were safe in a tunnel and miraculously survived as well.

A 23-year-old Texas man arrested for lying about testing positive for the new Coronavirus told investigators he did so as a “social experiment.” Michael Lane Brandin of Woodville, in East Texas, was charged with false alarm or report, a class A misdemeanor. Tyler District Attorney Lucas Babin said Brandin intentionally posted on Facebook that he had tested positive for COVID-19, causing a panic and tying up phone lines at Woodville’s Tyler County Hospital. Brandin allegedly told investigators that he made the post as a ‘social experiment’ to make the point that not everything one reads online can be believed. The district attorney posted earlier this week on Facebook that such claims could be a criminal offense. (https://bit.ly/3bnEZIH)
