Two identical snowflakes found

Defying the long-held belief that no two snowflakes are ever exactly alike, Rev. Smith yesterday found two snowflakes that were exactly alike. “Two snowflakes fell from the sky right onto my gloved hand,” stated Smith, “and I examined them: they were both exactly alike.” Smith was preparing to bring the snowflakes to a lab to verify his finding when both snowflakes unexpectedly melted. Scientists believe that the identical snowflakes may be the result of low-level radiation in Smith’s hometown, or that he may be lying.
