MINI BELIEVE IT OR NOT –
Sheep farmers in remote Turkish Hills are surfing the internet using solar-powered charging points attached to donkeys.
- The charge points produce between five and seven kilowatts of electricity
- That’s more than enough to charge a laptop
- The shepherds live a very solitary life; the only socializing that they get comes from the Internet or watching TV
- The charge points cost ₺2,800 Turkish liras, or $1,320
“BIONs” – short for Believe It or Not – is the word we use at Ripley’s to refer to anything that is unbelievable and worthy to become part of Ripley’s lore and collection.
