“I was tossed and pitched about most terribly through the rapids, but that was not so bad as the drop from the precipice. I struck some rocks, I believe, and was hurled about and knocked frightfully. I could tell when the descent began by feeling that something had given out from under me. Ugh! It’s a terrible nightmare. I don’t want to experience it again. I’d sooner be shot by a cannon or lose a million dollars then do that again.” The Buffalo News tells the story of Annie Taylor and the 14 others who have ridden Niagara Falls. This American Life took a look at the town obscured by the mist. Here’s an okay picture (check out the people for scale) that should convey why you really ought to visit at least once.Thanks, Larkfarm.
