Then the whalers would row back towards the animal again. For the coup de grace the harpooner would drill a razor-sharp lance into the pulmonary artery: “The whale begins to spit blood, its blowhole transformed into a six-metre high, blood-red geyser,” explains novelist and whaling expert Nathaniel Philbrick.

In the aftermath of the Boston Marathon attack in 2013, specialists collected more than 1,200 pieces of evidence. IEDs are an anonymous threat – it’s only down to forensic scientists that the perpetrators are given faces and names. For Daniel South it’s a belated payback. The former National Guardsman is the only survivor of an IED ambush in Iraq, which only now, nine years later, can be attributed to Waad Ramadan Alwan. “It’s too bad we didn’t catch him at the time, but this is the second-best outcome,” he says.
But how exactly can panic freeze all of the body’s muscles? Neurologists from the University of Bristol, UK, have discovered a kind of secret passage in our brains. For some people, this neural circuit is activated when they perceive a threat. Within a fraction of a second, an extremely strong impulse is sent from the brain’s fear centre to the motor cortex, which switches off all of the impulses to the muscles. The result: the person suddenly becomes paralysed. Researchers still don’t know why this process only occurs in one in ten people.
