Things Bill Bryson taught me

How did I miss knowing that during WWII Nobuo Fujita flew a floatplane over the Pacific northwest, dropping incendiary bombs to try to start forest fires?

Or that the Japanese tried to float bombs across the Pacific using balloons? (This was a plan of Epic Fail, thank goodness.)

This is why I love history. THERE IS SO MUCH RANDOM.

Okay, the balloons are hilarious.
