Overseen: Black Swan Event

Overseen Victoria, Australia, February 2013

Q. Lady Traveller, where have you been?  Why no posts?
A. 1. Helping to install a new museum.  2. Sleeping.  3. See #1

Q. What is a Black Swan Event?
A. Something that comes as a surprise (that may even have been postulated to be impossible) but, once observed, makes sense in hindsight.  For example, for centuries Europeans believed that it was impossible that a black swan could exist ... until settlers came across the birds in Australia.
