When you think about it, spiders were one of nature’s first true engineers. They make the toughest casters you can find on our planet. The silk spiders use to build webs is stronger than steel. They trap their prey in that web. They use it to dangle from the ceiling in our homes and haunt our dreams too. Their silk is extremely stretchy. Considering how stretchy the silk is, plus the amount of force you need to use to break it — that combination shows the silk is so strong it’s able to take three times as much energy as Kevlar before it breaks.

Also, common people had to be really careful about colors — for instance, it was prohibited to wear purple. As ridiculous as it might seem today, in 15th and 16th century England, the wrong color and fabric choice could land people in legal trouble.
