Apparently the ability to fly wasn't good enough for bats. They just had to go and take swimming too. The one consolation here is that even though they can swim, they don't seem all that good at it. It's just a slow, floating "W".

Rare And Well-Timed Moments That Went Against The Odds

Given the amount of time we spend just existing, it's pretty likely that we're bound to see a few unlikely occurrences and rare moments in our lives. But thanks to the fact that there's a lot of us all existing at the same time, doing all sorts of stuff, rare moments and unlikely occurrences happen way more frequently than they feel like they should. And that's kind of cool.

In the ongoing war between Apple and Samsung, the battle has turned not towards more practical and useful products and services, but rather which company can impart the most damage on its users.

As has been reported, and even mocked by the president and Grand Theft Auto, Samsung has been the champion of flamable phones for the past few months. Samsung has been an innovator in how to leave their users with burns thanks to the explosive Galaxy Note 7 smartphone.

That was until the Silicon Valley stalwart Apple has had their say.

After falling asleep watching a movie on her iPhone 7, a pregnant Australian woman awoke to several “superficial” burns on her arm, leaving “an imprint of the phone and charger etched into her skin,” according to Metro.

While she’s probably relieved that the phone didn’t blowup, Melanie Tan Pelaez did claim to also “experience sudden pain, pins and needles, numbness and shortness of breath.” Genius Bar can’t fix that.

The burns, Pelaez was told, wouldn’t be covered under the warranty, as Apple “allegedly denied that the phone was to blame ‘as it didn’t have a distinct smell’ and told her the phone usually shuts down if overheating occurs.” The phone has since been sent to California for testing.

Hey, if it doesn’t smell like an Apple burn, it’s not an Apple burn. Now, let’s see Samsung build an explosion with a signature smell. Google Pixel, you smell what we're cooking?
