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.
You avoid crowds of people, try to go unseen. Every night you stay in different places. You see your face on posters all over the city. You’re everywhere, and they’re after you... No, you’re not some wanted fugitive. You’re loved by every person on the planet!

It was a routine flyover for the Coast Guard. Miles and miles of deep blue ocean. Suddenly, guardsmen noticed a makeshift flag on a deserted island between Key West and Cuba. They lowered from 500 feet to see what was going on there. Two men and a woman were waving hands in distress. It was apparent they needed immediate help. The crew couldn’t land at once because of the bad weather, but they dropped some food, water, and a radio to discover why they were there. They learned the castaways had been there in the Bahamas for a whopping 33 days already. Their boat hit a storm and capsized, and all they could do was swim to the nearest island. They also informed the crew the woman needed help as soon as possible.
We’re so used to the things our body does to keep us alive each day that we barely ever think about the mechanisms of sleeping, talking, breathing, or even blinking. 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?
Friday night after work, you decide to drive over to your grandma’s for the weekend. She cooks you a delicious dinner and listens to all your stories. You mention the office AC must have given you a slight cold — you coughed a couple of times. Grandma says nothing and just nods and smiles like she’s up to something. You go to bed and fall asleep like a baby. The next morning, you wake up with onions in your socks and a tennis ball tied to your back! Grandmaaaa! What’s all that supposed to mean?
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. You and the rest of the inhabitants of the planet are going to board the greatest ship in history.
There are tons of people outside! You’re making your way through the laughing, chatting, shouting, and constantly MOVING crowd. It’s a nice summer night, and it feels as if the entire city has gone for a walk. You decide to take a shortcut through the park. You’re already near the lake when you trip... and the next thing you know, you’re rolling downhill toward the water! Luckily, you stop in time not to get soaked through. Time to estimate the damage. A bump on your head, ice cream all over your clothes, hands, and face. Green spots left by grass on your sneakers. Oh, and dozens of people laughing at your clumsiness. Well, it could be worse!
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.

The incandescent meteorite slowly sinks to the bottom and illuminates the black waters with a green light. Mesmerized by this picture, you approach the edge of the pier. 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.

Let’s go ahead and set an hour for you to wake up consistently every day of this week, say, 7 am.

Next on the list, sleeping hours. This will differ a bit depending on how old you are. Here’s a chart that might help. People aged 13 to 18 need around 8 to 10 hours of sleep.
You check into your hotel room, connect to Wi-Fi, jump on the bed, and post 15 photos of your new window view. When the initial surge of excitement is gone, you notice a suspicious blinking light on your big TV. Could it be that someone is watching you, or have you just seen too many spy movies?
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.
