Each week on Drive, Bec and Jeziel share a fun fact that’s sound so crazy it will blow you mind! This week they talked about an unexpected meteor shower. Believe It Or Not

Ruth Hamilton was awoken by a loud bang. She was covered in dust, there was a hole in her ceiling and a rock lying on her pillow. The police investigated and it was determined that the rock was actually a meteor, potentially billions of years old. It had crashed through her ceiling and landed inches from her head!

The Titanic film runs for as long as the ship sunk (minus the opening and ending credits. Titanic is 2hrs and 45 minutes long which is also the time it took for the ship to sink in 1912. Additionally, the collision scene lasted 37 seconds, which is also how long the ship collided with the iceberg in real life. “That’s insane! How did they know that specifically?”
