20 Times People Made Discoveries That Will Quench Your Curiosity

3 years ago

Because of smartphones, life has noticeably accelerated. There is so much news and so many events that we simply don’t have enough time to pay attention to it all. As a result, our attention span has been shortened to 8 seconds (from 12), making it difficult to notice all of the out-of-the-way things we encounter.

We at Bright Side have found 20 people who were lucky to find real-life Easter eggs that made us wonder how many more surprises there are hidden around us.

1. “My Japanese friend found a game about himself in a shop in the Netherlands.”

2. A real-life Easter egg, only for the most attentive passers-by.

3. “My electric kettle has a hidden video game in its temperature screen.”

4. A door on an abandoned beach, we can only guess how it got there and what its purpose is.

5. The Irish passport has a tricolor binding.

6. “My uncle found a bag of volcano ash from Mount St. Helens with a note tucked in the back of one of his cupboards.”

7. “Found a little surprise in the library book I borrowed.”

“Dear next reader,

When I got this book, someone had left a winning PowerBall ticket worth $100 in it. It was a nice surprise! I figured I’d pass some of it along.

Here’s your share — enjoy!”

8. “My bag of coffee has a map inside. Excited to finish the bag and see the whole thing.”
