Ever been to a museum and realized that the public is just a few steps away from the valuable artworks and artifacts on display? I mean, sometimes it’s just a silly velvet rope, and other times, there’s nothing at all to keep people at bay. But, let’s imagine for a second that you’re walking by, minding your own business, and you accidentally trip and knock down a shelf filled with priceless Etruscan urns. Not only would the urns obviously shatter into a million pieces, but what would happen to you? I mean, can you picture yourself standing there covered in broken ceramic, trying to play it cool like you didn’t just cause a major disaster? If it were me, I’d likely pull out my best Urkel impression and say “Did I do that?”

The Statue of Liberty wasn’t always the iconic green color that we know today. The statue originally consisted of copper skin over the iron framework, making Lady Liberty appear a bright bronze color. Over the years, the copper began to oxidize, forming a protective layer called patina and creating a bright green hue. It took 30 years for Lady Liberty to turn fully green.

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.

People say that “time flies” and this is something we all notice when our children, pets, and parents grow older. But nothing escapes the passage of time. Think about those stairs that people have used to go up and down for decades, maybe in a public library, or in a museum. And what about going to the same hairdresser and using the same hairbrush for years and years. If we want to find the true meaning of “time flies,” the best thing we can do is to look around and try to recall what some of the things we use every day looked like when we first bought them.

Children haven’t had enough time to learn the laws and rules of this world which is why they make up their own. For example, read the story about the glasses that cost $400 but got thrown away by a kid because “they were dirty” or the one about children who only pick up the toys they want to keep. Each of these stories is absolutely mind-blowing but totally true.

Surely you’ve thought about what your dream house would be like. There are actually many spaces that can inspire you, for example, the houses of celebrities. Their homes are usually full of fascinating details, and some appear to have come out of a fairytale. However, some stars decide to sell them out of nowhere, and at very high prices. Despite the costs, when a house like this is available, it usually sells very quickly, except for some cases where no one wants to purchase it, and it ends up abandoned.

Customer service is hard. You need to know how to properly answer each client’s questions, provide them with the best possible assistance, and handle complaints when they aren’t satisfied with your product or service. But what happens when these claims are so peculiar that they even make us doubt if they’re serious or not? A Twitter user who works in a museum shared an unusual experience that she had at her job when a woman went in expecting to see a live saber-toothed cat (and Jurassic Park is likely to blame).
