Some experimenters noted that hot water freezes faster than cold water -- others scoffed and it was sort of ignored by scientists (beyond earlier philosophers and observations) until 1963, when it was proven true. It still defies logic and physics a bit. We have theories why it might happen, but no proof (or conflicting evidence) as to the actual cause.
