    5. Unicorns were real?
    Scientists have discovered evidence that supports the theory that the one-horned beautiful stallions of fantasy could have once walked the earth--except that thay are not as beautiful and ethereal as the Lisa Frank illustrations depicted. Researchers from Russia's Tomsk State University found a Siberian skull of a large animal with a single horn growing from its head in Kazakhstan, dated 29,000 years ago. Scientists have referred to them as "unicorns" because of their single horns, but these animals were originally thought to have gone extinct 350,000 years ago. The discovery of the fossils now seems to refute that. These Siberian unicorns look more like smaller mammoths (without the trunk). Think giant furry rhinos with a beastly horn. Um, maybe don't tell the kids. (eonline.com)
