You have no idea how happy I was to see that as the science passage. I already knew what dowsing was (thanks mom for teaching me about it when I was a kid for no apparent reason), so that passage was super comfortable/familiar. I think the hardest part about that one for most people was just how weird of a concept dowsing is. Who tf thinks you can actually find water by walking around with a pointy stick and then jabbing it into the earth
Weird, I learned about this in some history class I think in relation to the Homestead Act and discussion of the Dust Bowl... I thought this was part of history class in general for everyone until some of you were like THAT'S FO REAL? I feel like it was also in Huckleberry Finn which was required reading for one of our English classes in my school...
Oh wait, it might have been grade school history that I remember it from then. No idea. Definitely didn't have to read Huck Finn in school though. Only books I remember having to read (there were definitely others) were Great Expectations, The Scarlet Letter, and Macbeth.
