Anyone think adding Category:Lists of things considered unusual would be appropriate or inappropriate for this article? Either adding it as a see also link or adding it as one of the categories. -- œ 07:12, 22 August 2011 (UTC)


Do we really need the cat listed twice? Jmohler1970 (talk) 07:33, 24 November 2011 (UTC)

The second listing, under "inanimate objects", is actually for the barrel in which the cat travelled. You're welcome to reword it if that gets rid of any ambiguity. matt (talk) 08:21, 24 November 2011 (UTC)
Thats nonsense. The objects are already mentioned with the persons. --Eingangskontrolle (talk) 19:48, 19 June 2012 (UTC)

Joseph Avery[edit]

On July 17, 1853 a man named Joseph Avery was stranded on a log in the middle of the Niagara River just above the falls. He and some other men were on a boat in the river, and there are several theories regarding why they were just above the falls in the boat. The boat was smashed and the other men were swept over, but Avery managed to cling to a rock or log for 18 hours in the rapids just above the falls. Several desperate attempts to save him were unsuccessful, and he finally weakened and was swept over the falls to his death. A photo taken of him in the middle of the river remains one of the earliest examples of American photojournalism. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mrb1980 (talkcontribs) 21:48, 3 July 2016 (UTC)

article name[edit]

just a reminder: people are NEVER considered objects. we are the observer, always, and other things can be objects. animals are marginally considered objects, but never people. Mercurywoodrose (talk) 04:37, 3 November 2017 (UTC)
