  2. Isaac Newton believed the world would end in 2060, not based on his scientific studies or findings, but based on the extreme religious beliefs he developed late in his life.
  3. There’s a place called Inaccessible Island in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean and, because of weather patterns, it’s only possible to get there one week a year.
  4. The world’s first cyberattack happened in 1988 when a student at Cornell University wrote a program to detect how many computers were connected to the Internet and he wound up clogging up the entire thing.
