Ever since Plato wrote about the allegory of Atlantis, humanity has been fascinated with the possibility of the discovery of a thriving underwater civilization. Fancy joining me on a trip to a few historic underwater sites? Let’s see what we can find out about ancient civilizations! The first one on our list is what is being called the underwater Stonehenge. Scientists have recently discovered a mysterious pile of cairns that stretch for miles under the shimmering waters of Lake Constance at the borders of Switzerland, Germany, and Austria. Archeologists began to explore the site back in 2015, and they haven’t been able to understand yet what it was actually used for. What they do know is that there is a 12 miles line of 170 human-made stone cairns under Lake Constance. Scientists say this was most likely the result of the combined work of several villages. The cairns site was probably used for some collective purpose. The formations are huge! Some of them are several dozen feet wide.

They are superfast, super smart, can defeat pretty much anyone, and only exist in movies and literature. Well, not really — ninjas are among us, at least one of them. Jinichi Kawakami [dzi-NI-ki ka-wa-KA-mi], a 73-year-old engineer, is probably Japan’s last true ninja grandmaster. He’s the 21st head of the Ban Clan. This family has ninja roots going back 500 years. And it looks like Jinichi will become the final one, as he doesn’t have plans to pass his skills over to a 22nd clan head. If you believe the Japanese folklore, the ninjas’ ancestor is a demon that was half man and half crow.

If you think of a prisoner, you probably imagine them wearing an orange jumpsuit. This is true, but it wasn’t always like this. Originally, prisoners in the US were wearing uniforms with black-and-white stripes. In the early 20th century, things started to change. And switching these colors to something else was supposed to cut off the association with gangs. Orange jumpsuits appeared in the 70s. Inmates don’t always wear them: only when being transported or going outside. Why? For higher visibility. Wearing striking orange, an inmate can’t get away and get lost in the crowd easily.

Sometimes people don’t realize how big and diverse our world is, which means that we can’t know everything. For example, in Greece, the tradition calls for decorating a boat on Christmas instead of a tree. Now, not all people follow that tradition, but it’s something unusual that very few other countries know about. So no matter how well-educated someone is, they can’t know every little thing and detail about this planet.

Psychologists believe the drive to celebrate the New Year goes back to our survival instinct. This holiday, like a birthday, reminds us that we have lived another year, and it means that we did a good job. All these resolutions to change our lifestyle are nothing more than bringing our desire to take control of the situation to life. It doesn’t really matter whether we’ll really start running in the morning, saving money, or losing weight in the coming year because even the short moment we believe in these promises gives us a reason for joy and happiness.
