I few years ago my hubby and I went to Ripleyâ??s Believe It Or Not! in St. Augustine, Florida and I just couldn’t leave the place.Â It was such an interesting and fun place to visit and learn from.Â Really neat things to look at for sure.Â My favorite picture is my hubby standing next to the tallest man in the world.Â Made him look like he was about 3 foot tall.
Recently I was reading about Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Download the Weird book and had to check it our at Amazon.com.Â I had no idea they had an annual book they put it out.Â But there is a twist with the book this year.
When you get the book, you will then download the free app for either iTunes or Android.Â Then you point your smartphone, ipod or ipad at the special oddSCANâ?¢ logos and the book comes alive with extra pictures and videos.Â I love this idea.
Here are a few things new this year:
â?¢ Meet the worldâ??s oddest couple: he swallows swords, hedge trimmers and umbrella handles while she hangs upside down and lifts lead weights by her hair!
â?¢ Learn why a California man has experienced more than 950 violent car crashes.
â?¢ See tourists risk life and limb to get their picture taken with an 18-foot-long crocodile!
And there is so much more.Â A special section just on the Titanic.Â I would love to read more about that.
