Fun Fact

Some planets produce diamond rain.

Saturn and Jupiter are gas giant planets that produce a truly unique form of weather. Recently, scientists discovered that there is plenty of carbon in these atmospheres. When carbon soot gets hit by lightning, it hardens into graphite and falls downward, where the pressure of the atmosphere hardens it further, until it becomes… a diamond! Storms on these planets may literally rain diamonds as big as a centimeter across.

It's Illegal to Dance in the Dark After Midnight in Japan

Japan was like the country version of the movie "Footloose." Dancing after midnight was banned for generations, as it is just too sinful. Well, it was really just too American. Enacted in 1948 while U.S. soldiers occupied Japan, the ban was placed to stop liberal Americans from corrupting the good citizens of Japan.

Finally lifting the ban in 2105, you can dance after midnight, as long as it's not in the dark. Revelers wanting to get their groove on after the clock strikes 12 need to do it in well-lit nightclubs.
