Carefully arranging your used towels isn’t the best thing to do in a hotel. You’re just not helping. The general rule is: dump them somewhere like the bathroom floor or in the bathtub. Then the staff can see that they need to change the towels. If you keep them all nice and folded, the staff may just get it wrong and leave them as they are, thinking that they’re still fresh.
You almost fall down on the floor as you jolt awake at the airport. Surprisingly, it’s the silence that has woken you up. Usually, airports are full of hectic activity. Passengers are in a hurry to catch their flight. Announcements are made every minute. Planes take off and land.

But what would happen to your body if you stopped doing each of these things all of a sudden? How long would it be before it became a problem? Not that I’ve ever considered taking some sort of vow of silence, but I do sometimes wonder what would happen if I just stopped talking altogether. Would I lose my voice forever at one point?

“The hardest thing on the planet is to get out of a warm bed early in the morning. The second most challenging thing in the world is to sit in an office and force yourself to start working. It’s hard to read a big book and cook your own food. It’s almost impossible to earn a lot of money. Do sports? It’s something fantastic. Keeping a dog at home and walking it several times a day is just senseless. How do people live this tough life?” Almost every day, Louis thinks about these things. And he is the laziest person in the world who loves only one thing — watching TV series and movies.
Humanity’s facing the greatest danger ever. Our Sun’s fading. In 500 years, the entire Solar System will be plunged into darkness and eternal cold. To save our civilization, people begin to build a huge spaceship that will accommodate the population of the whole world inside, and go into deep space. In less than 400 years, the construction of the ship is finally completed. The Sun is already nearing its end — it’s much smaller and cooler, making the climate on Earth cold and harsh.

What’s going on? Everything’s blurry. You don’t remember what happened the night before. All you can recall is falling asleep on your couch after a hectic day at work. You rub the sleep from your eyes, get up, and look around. You’re in a tiny studio filled with different trinkets and weird objects. There’s a kitchenette next to the door and a small bathroom. You go to wash your face, and when you look in the mirror, you start screaming. Realizing you’re being too loud, you immediately cover your mouth with your hands. Your eyes in the mirror are unnaturally large, and your skin and hair are perfect. You touch your face to check if this is real.
Night. You and your friends are riding bikes around a small city and notice a meteorite flying in the sky. It burns with a bright green flame and then falls right into a small pond near the town. You instantly dash to the crash site. The water on the pond’s surface is foaming and bubbling.

The green glow is reflected in your glasses, beckoning you. You take a step, suddenly fall into the water, and pass out.
You pull up to a hotel and see a no vacancy sign. But don’t necessarily believe it. Hotels usually do this when they only have 2 or 3 rooms left. Instead, try calling the front desk to see if they have rooms.Hotel star ratings aren’t always reliable as the rating systems vary between countries. In Italy, for example, a hotel can be given 5 stars just for having a 24-hour reception desk, receptionists that speak 3 languages, and rooms that start at 16 square meters. Instead of using stars, look at ratings or reviews instead.Booking late can also get you the best deals. If your stay is not urgent, try booking a room on the day of the stay. If the hotel isn’t full, you’ll likely get a discount. Hotel managers reduce room rates last minute to fill them.

Okay, the next time you feel like complaining that your bed isn’t comfortable enough and the room is way too small, just think of those people who had to sleep in boxes. Until the early 19th century, that was a common thing in Europe. And no, it wasn’t just the way the poorest people lived — even the nobility had to resort to this unusual sleep situation. The houses back then used to be much smaller, with one or two rooms. The bigger room would serve as both a bedroom and a living room, and everyone living or visiting the house would sleep there. Even in larger houses and palaces, servants would often share the rooms with their bosses. So, people were happy to get any privacy they could. One possible option was a curtain around the bed, but that wasn’t enough in some cases. And that’s how the box-bed tradition was born.
