Sketchy Fact #21: The Mega-est Tsunami

In 1958 a landslide in Lituya Bay Alaska produced a 516 meter (1,720 foot) tall wave, the biggest ever recorded. Five people died, but four others in two fishing boats rode the wave out of the bay and survived. Presumably, they proceeded to complete the most sincere high-five in history.
