Green Children of Banjos. In 1887, 2 children were found at a cave near Banjos Spain. Their language was unknown, not Spanish. They wore clothes of a strange metallic cloth. Their skin had an odd green tint. The boy soon died since it was difficult to get either of them to eat. The girl survived, was able to communicate in Spanish and said they had come from a place that had no sun, a land of perpetual twilight. They heard a loud bang, were pushed through something and then were in the cave.

In 1887, two small children were found alone near the town of Banjos, Spain. But these were no ordinary children who had been lost or abandoned by parents. Upon investigation, they found a small boy and girl, scared and crying, huddled near the entrance to a cave. Their language was unknown to the workers - it certainly wasn't Spanish. More mysterious still, they wore clothes made of a strange metallic cloth... and their skin had an odd green tint.

Millie and Christine McCoy (1851-1912) were conjoined twins born into slavery. They and their mother were sold to a showman, Joseph Smith. Smith and his wife educated the girls; they eventually could speak five languages, dance, play music, and sing. They were known as 'The Two Headed Nightingale'. In the 1880s they retired and purchased a small farm. Millie died of tuberculosis at age 61, with Christine following hours later. They remain one of the oldest-lived set of conjoined twins.

If you are reading this, thank this woman. Her name is Grace Hopper, and she is one of the most under appreciated computer scientists ever. You think Gates and Jobs were cool?

Every single program you use, every OS and server, was made possible by her first compiler.

This boy named Herre died in 1873 at the age of two years and a half. The photo was found in his father's diary, which mentions the following: "We had one portrait made in his bed after he died by Ephraim. Later he put the head on a portrait of his child, wearing Herre's clothes, which became quite good". A very unusual example of early photoshopping avant la lettre!
