I love history, I love random facts, I love just sperging through wikipedia. You know what it's like to read stuff on wikipedia though, you start with an interesting topic and a few hours and numerous clicks later you end up at a weird article that you think is totally made up. Take for example the article about the franco-prussian war of 1870, wich brought me to Strasbourg which brought me to this article:

Dancing_Plague_of_1518

Yes, you didn't misread that, the dancing plague of 1518.


Now, I don't know about you, but I've never heard of that before and at first I thought this has to be made up, but it looks legit.

What other strange but true historical events have you found through wikipedia or whatever that you couldn't believe really happened?

That would be the first known case of doping the local well with a half ton of e.
