The Amazing Sidd Finch: In 1985, Sports Illustrated published a story about a young rookie pitcher who was going to start with the Mets, Sidd Finch. He could reportedly throw a baseball at 168 mph (65 mph faster than the record) because of his time in a Tibetan monastery where he mastered yoga and meditation as well. Mets fans rejoiced until they learned it was a hoax.
Instant Color TV: On the one and only black and white television channel in Sweden in 1962, they announced that you could convert your existing sets to display color by stretching a nylon over the screen. Thousands tried without success.
