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. There was nothing unusual about him at first glance: he was elegantly dressed, with no distinguishing features. He was just a simple man sporting a beard. He made his way to customs, just as all the other people surrounding him. The customs officer picked up this man’s passport.

Or a spy? Or, most intriguing of them all, a time traveler?
Leaving your valuables or a chocolate bar in a car is a no-brainer, but there are other things people often overlook. Here’s what to watch out for before leaving your car.Number one is aerosol cans: hairspray, deodorant, spray paint, household cleaner, and sorts. On the back of these cans, you might notice a storage temperature recommendation. Well, stick to that. Here’s what can happen. Since these cans are pressurized, they become more sensitive to temperature. What’s inside the aerosol may expand, and this may result in a crack. And then, the can can blow up. Temperatures above 120 degrees Fahrenheit are already alarming. And it can easily get as hot as that in your car on a warm summer day.

Microstates are surrounded by myths. For instance, many people believe that only multimillionaires live in Monaco and only the priesthood lives in the Vatican.

When Botox and fillers were unknown to us, and plastic surgery was not as widespread as it is now, everyone was aging at the behest of nature. However, wrinkles and gray hair can never spoil natural beauty, since attractiveness has nothing to do with the age indicated on your passport.

From the moment you enter the airport building and until the moment you land, you are constantly watched. All your pre-flight procedures are a compromise between safety and speed.
