Or that the remains of a deceased loved one can be turned into a diamond? Or that the loudest known sound in history was made by a volcanic eruption in 1883, with the echoing blast circling the planet more than three times?Welcome to Two Truths and a Lie: Forces of Nature!

Don’t be fooled by the photos that accompany each story–it’s going to take all your smarts and some clever research to ferret out the truth.From a man who gave himself an appendectomy to radio signals from other planets to eagles that have been trained to take out spy drones, the stories in this third installment in the Two Truths and a Lie series will amaze you! Just don’t believe everything you read. . . .
