Regarding Banach-Tarski, I think the result isn't so surprising anymore once you consider that the "pieces" of the ball are not pieces in the usual sense but rather very scattered sets of points.

We all know that infinite sets often have counter-intuitive properties. For instance, we can take the natural numbers, divide it into two sets, the even and the odd numbers, and end up with two sets that are both just as big as (and isomorphic to) the natural numbers, see also Hilberts Hotel.
