Welcome to the Curiosities Sub-Index

Have no doubt: curiosities are not anomalies. Curiosities are scientifically explainable... but they tend to display some extreme ends of that scientific explainablity! Robert Ripley spent a lifetime finding curiosities, and curiosities have attracted crowds since long before P.T. Barnum opened his museums; and in many cases, it's not that hard to see why people in the past could often mistake some of these bizarre occurences, behaviors, and hoaxes as signs of supernatural intervention in the world!
