Strange news from London:

https://nypost.com/2019/11/30/london-bridge-attack-narwhal-tusk-wielding-hero-luckasz-is-polish-immigrant/?fbclid=IwAR2dNlvfGFgTnItunjGfNnGd_joopUNzSk1ouJ25PlmFwgIKL7EN1PTdoDQ

A Polish immigrant used a norwhal tusk to repel an Islamic extremist who attempted a knife attack near London Bridge.

I am reminded of a historic event I recently heard of. In the 19th century, two samurai on a sea voyage were crossing Panama (pre canal) when they were attacked by a local bandit. One of the samurai killed the bandit with his katana. The event was witnessed and recorded by a descendant of an Aztec emperor. You might have thought that nothing that weird could happen today, and today, you would have been proven wrong.
