Like the neutral zone of a magnet’s attraction

On Sept. 20, 1839, a fall of living fishes occurred about 20 miles south of Calcutta, India (A Popular Treatise, p414). A witness in Living Age, 52-186, comments, “The most strange thing which ever struck me was that the fish did not fall helter-skelter, or here and there, but they fell in a straight line, not more than a cubit in breadth.”

–Charles Fort, The Book of the Damned, p87 (The Complete Books of Charles Fort, Dover, c1974).
