HGG- Ripley's Believe It or Not! Unlock the Weird!-US Only-Ends Dec.15/16

Have you ever seen a Ripley's Believe it or Not book or maybe even visited a museum? There sure are some fascinating things in the book. The book has been named a Mom's Choice Awards winner, a distinction that the company is very proud of. The book is a mind-blowing collection of fantastic, fun, and even freaky stories from around the world. Sections include Animals, Pop Culture, Feats, Art, Food, and Beyond Belief. What they all have in common is that they’re all true and handpicked by Ripley’s Believe It or Not!—the authority on all things unusual and incredible!

Here are some of the stories there is in the book for you to enjoy:
**Read about one man’s attempt to take a break from reality, spending three days climbing the Swiss Alps on all fours as a goat!

**Soar on jetpacks above the deserts of Dubai with breathtaking aerial imagery.

**Meet Birdman Ted Richards who had his ears removed and his face and eyeballs tattooed to look like his pet parrots!

**Savor the flavor of sheep dung spitting, an Irish event that is just as unappetizing as it sounds!

**See double with Twin Strangers’s Niamh Geaney, who has found multiple doppelgängers that look exactly like her!

I really must warn you that some of the photos are a bit nasty like this the dung spitting for one.
In an annual festival in Ireland, sheep dung spitting participants take sheep excrement into their mouths and attempt to spit it the farthest. Some even source dung directly from the sheep!

Others are pretty neat. This first photo is Birdman.

Some of the photos are quite pretty and interesting like this one:
In Wujin, China, a unique government building takes its name and form from the lotus flower.

This is a hard cover book with hours of enjoyment. One lucky person will win a copy of this same book. US Only.
Good luck everyone.
