Life is a rollercoaster, and some days it seems like the universe just can’t help but mess with you. We’ve all been there — those days when you wake up and from the very start, everything seems to go haywire. You spill your morning coffee, miss the bus by a split second, and then you step into a puddle that seemingly came out of nowhere. It’s as if the universe decided to play a prank on you, and you’re left wondering if you accidentally walked under a ladder while breaking a mirror.If you’ve ever had one of those days, you’re definitely not alone. In fact, there’s a whole club of “unluckiest people” who have taken to the internet to share their hilarious tales of woe. These are the 21 people who prove, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that sometimes it’s just not your day.Take Sarah, for instance. She was all dressed up for a job interview that she’d been preparing for weeks. Everything was perfect — until a bird decided to use her freshly styled hair as target practice. Or think about poor Mark, who managed to lock himself out of his apartment not once, but twice in the same day. It’s almost impressive how life finds new and inventive ways to keep him out.Then there’s Lily, whose quest for a healthy lifestyle took a hilarious turn when she slipped on a banana peel while jogging. Yes, you read that right — a literal banana peel. It’s like something out of a classic slapstick comedy. And let’s not forget about Alex, who managed to send a text to his boss about how much he hated his job... only to realize he sent it to his boss instead of his friend.But it’s not just individual tales of misfortune that make these stories so relatable — it’s the collective “I’ve been there” nod they inspire. Who hasn’t experienced the sheer frustration of waiting for an important call, only for your phone to die at the exact moment it starts ringing? Or how about that moment when you drop your toast and it lands butter-side down, defying all laws of probability?These stories remind us that life doesn’t always have to be taken seriously. Sometimes, all you can do is laugh at the absurdity of it all. Sure, getting caught in the rain without an umbrella is a hassle, but it’s also an opportunity to dance like nobody’s watching. And yes, accidentally using salt instead of sugar in your coffee is a taste bud nightmare, but it’s also a chance to embrace the unexpected.In a world that often feels like it’s spinning out of control, these tales of everyday misadventures serve as a reminder that we’re all in this together. They bridge the gap between strangers, uniting us through shared experiences of spilled drinks and wardrobe malfunctions. They remind us that perfection is overrated and that the unplanned moments are often the ones that make the best stories.So, the next time you find yourself slipping on a banana peel or realizing you’ve been wearing your shirt inside out all day, take a deep breath and join the club of the “unluckiest.” Embrace the chaos, roll with the punches, and know that you’re not alone in your quest to navigate the hilariously unpredictable journey called life. After all, we’re all just 21 people in a world full of unplanned moments, proving that sometimes, it’s just not our day — and that’s perfectly okay.

Have you ever seen a skyscraper that can change its shape? The creators of the F&F Tower in Panama City had a concept and only $50 million, which isn’t a lot in skyscraper money. So, they couldn’t afford a mistake, and they finished a concrete structure with the 39 upper floors rotating 9 degrees around an axis from the first attempt without spending any extra time or materials. Dubai’s Rotating Tower will look different every time you see it once it’s finished. Each of its 80 floors will rotate 360 degrees individually around the center of the building. The lucky residents will be able to control that rotation, which means they can choose their view from the window. A complete lap should take about 90 minutes. And no, the tower won’t be a huge waste of electricity — it will produce its own energy! Wind turbines between the floors will drive the rotations.

It was July 1954, a scorching hot day: a man arrived at Haneda Airport in Tokyo, Japan. He had recently landed from a plane flying over from Europe.

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.
