This Day in History: 2011 – Osama bin Laden, the mastermind behind the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks in the United States, is killed by US forces during a raid on his hideout in Pakistan.

Fact of the Day:  Based on the computer files and other evidence recovered in the raid to kill Osama bin Laden, it was determined that bin Laden was devising plans to assassinate President Obama, as well as carry out a series of additional attacks against America.

#StrangeButTrue: The largest snake species ever discovered lived during the Paleocene era (66 to 23 million years ago).  It’s estimated that the epicly-named Titanoboa was a staggering 40 feet long and weighed 2,5000 pounds.  Titanoboa’s size has led scientists to believe that it spent most of its time in the water, as getting around on land fast enough to catch prey would have been immensely difficult with all the bulk to carry around.
