In this article, we will explore a story that shows how real life can be even more surprising than made-up stories. We have a real story about a wife who didn’t tell the truth to her partner about their upcoming baby. She said it would be a boy, but that wasn’t true. She felt upset and went on the internet to ask for advice from others about how to fix the problem.

“Happy birthday to you! Happy birthday to you! Happy birthday dear best friend! Happy birthday to you!!!” You’re so excited! All your friends and relatives are here! Your adult life has just begun! You’ve graduated from several colleges, got a driver’s license for all kinds of vehicles, and read several thousands of books! You’re full of energy! And you’re only 80 years old! You blow out the candles with this number on your birthday cake.Your parents are here. They are more than two hundred years old. Your best friend has recently celebrated 112 years, and your younger brother is only 75. And you all look young for this age. Welcome to the world where the average human lives 400 years!
While choosing the best metal to use for goods exchanging, our ancestors considered many different types. Gold seemed to be a good choice since it’s resistant to corrosion, and you can melt it over a flame, which makes it easy to stamp it as a coin or work with it in any other way. Gold is not that rare but is not easy to find and extract in larger amounts with pre-industrial technology. Geologists believe most of the Gold on our planet came from space with meteorite storms more than two billion years ago. It’s one of the densest metals on our planet, and humans have mined around 180,000 tonnes of it by now. If you want to tell if the diamond you’re holding is real or fake, breathe out on it. The genuine diamond will remain transparent, while the fake one will get foggy.
Let’s get into the “purrfect” world of felines. From the sand cat that can go for weeks without drinking water to the first cat that went to space. Here are the 10 interesting cat facts for you to enjoy and be informed about.
Oceans cover over 70% of the Earth’s surface, so it comes as no surprise that about 50% of the U.S. territory is underwater. We’ve explored only 5% of oceans. 12 people walked on the Moon, but there were only four manned descents to the Mariana Trench, the deepest location on Earth. Pressure is the crucial challenge of going deep into the ocean. At bigger depths, temperatures are extremely low, visibility is zero, and the pressure is so intense it’s harder to send people to the bottom of the ocean than to send them into space.You can’t see it, but the pressure of the air pushing down on your body in deeper parts is so big it feels like more than one hundred adult elephants or 50 jumbo jets are standing on your head. The pressure is 1,000 times bigger than on the land. Meanwhile, in space, when we pass through the Earth’s atmosphere, the pressure drops to zero. We’re mapping the planets, but it turns out to be easier than mapping the ocean floor. NASA uses radio waves when exploring space, but this method can’t be used for the ocean, since the trillions and trillions of gallons of water get in the way.
You’re playing fetch with your doggie when all of a sudden you see something falling down from the sky. It’s glowing and has a large tail behind it. It’s speeding down at an alarming rate, getting ever closer.You try to grab your pooch to take it inside, but it goes stubborn, barking and growling. But then you look up and notice the shining UFO becoming more like a ball, and it looks like it’s heading towards you! You run around your backyard trying to catch your hound, but this time it thinks you’re playing with it and runs away from you.You improvise and chase it to go inside the house. And great timing too: the object in the sky flashes, so brightly you can’t even look at it, and then boom! It’s like a small piece of the sun just crashed right behind your house. You leap behind a couch and try to take a look at what happened. Your neighbors knock on your door to see if you’re all right. Once you open to them, they all flood in with their cameras.
Wow, you’re zipping through space, in a large ship as big as 3 New York City Central Parks. There’s a lot of commotion going on. No, it’s not some alien invading the spaceship... it’s a very important day. The date is January, 22nd, 2700. You’ve just been born, outside of the Earth’s atmosphere. Happy Birthday!There’s a medical team attending to everything, futuristic gadgets help out with every aspect. And the view from the giant spherical glass ship, is nothing but the incredible vastness of space. You can’t even see Earth anymore, the spaceship is flying to a new destination millions of miles away. ETA on reaching that new host planet, decades.
Is it possible to “put out” the Sun? For example, what would happen if we poured all of Earth’s oceans on it — or even more water? Well, let’s find out. The Universe is a place full of mysteries. Since ancient times, scientists have been arguing about how space works. But none of us has ever doubted the existence of one thing — the Sun. Ah, the center of our Solar system. It’s big, bright, and... immortal? Nah, not really. Actually, the Sun is just an ordinary star. It consists of 75% hydrogen, a little helium, and a pinch of other heavy elements. Gravity holds it all together. But in around 5 billion years, the life cycle of the Sun will come to an end. The hydrogen inside it will run out. Our star will begin to grow gradually. And you can’t even imagine just how BIG it will become!
About 8 billion inhabitants of planet Earth found the same terrible news in one day. Someone saw it on TV. Others heard it on the phone while scrolling through social media or listening to music. Some witnessed this news in a dream while sleeping. Someone’s voice said it in all languages to ensure everyone understood it. “I have good and bad news for you. Let’s start with the bad news. You’re all characters in YouTube videos in which your planet gets into a situation where the Moon breaks in half. For the audience, it will be a hypothetical story. But for you, these events will become a reality. The good news is that... I was joking. There is no good news. But don’t worry, the apocalypse won’t start on your planet. Maybe just a little bit. Have a nice day.”
Sometimes mistakes can be lucky. One of the most commonly used office supplies, the Post-it note, was invented by accident. When one scientist was trying to create a strong adhesive but ended up with a weak one instead, his colleague created a bookmark that would stick to the page without damaging it. And the yellow paper was used for creating the prototypes just because it was the only paper left. This is how the product was born, and it now makes a lot of things much easier.Inspired by this story, we decided to find more useful creations that can be very handy in your daily life.
Being a mother is a lot of responsibility and, honestly, a difficult job. Some women flatly decide not to bring any child into the world, and they have some solid reasons to think that way. However, there are also some who, even reluctantly, decide to go for it. And that changed their lives forever.
Welcome, fellow homebodies! Whether you’re a newly minted homeowner, a seasoned renter, or just looking to spruce up your space, you’ve come to the right place. Here you’ll find everything from the practical (hello, kitchen utensils!) to the freaky (who knew a cow-shaped jug could bring so much joy?) — we’ve got everything covered. So buckle up and get ready for an exciting trip through the world of wow-inducing home items!
Jupiter’s moon Europa is covered in a thick layer of ice, but underneath it is a vast ocean of water, measuring up to 100 miles deep. Water ice was previously thought to be rare and only common for Earth, but it can, in fact, be found all over the Solar System, even on Mercury and the Moon. Saturn is less dense than water, so if it were thrown into a giant pool, it would float. Space isn’t supposed to be black: there are stars everywhere. Shouldn’t they light up everything around? You don’t see stars wherever you look because some of them haven’t existed long enough for their light to reach Earth! There are eight confirmed planets in the Solar System, but evidence shows there can be a ninth — we just haven’t discovered it yet.
Humanity’s facing the greatest danger ever. Our Sun’s fading. In 500 years, the entire Solar System will be plunged into darkness and eternal cold. To save our civilization, people begin to build a huge spaceship that will accommodate the population of the whole world inside, and go into deep space. In less than 400 years, the construction of the ship is finally completed. The Sun is already nearing its end — it’s much smaller and cooler, making the climate on Earth cold and harsh. You and the rest of the inhabitants of the planet are going to board the greatest ship in history.
Wouldn’t it be really cool if we could collect energy from space and just bring it down to our planet? That means we wouldn’t need to get electricity from wind, water, or other resources available on Earth.Millions of people would charge their phones, store food in the fridge, watch TV, and do so much more thanks to electricity we’d wirelessly get from space. It kinda sounds too good to be true at first. But this idea isn’t science fiction anymore. Not only is it possible, but we might see it work sooner than we think, maybe even by 2040.
You take your seat on the plane and look around. It’s a large aircraft, spacious and new. You look up — something draws your attention to that small compartment above your seat that contains your oxygen mask. Come to think of it, you’ve only ever seen it during in-flight safety demonstrations. “Ah, maybe it’s for the better,” you think and relax into your seat. Screaming and powerful jerks are what wakes you up. One of the flight attendants is saying something in an urgent voice, but, still disoriented after your nap, you can’t catch the meaning of the announcement.
Joseph Walker is about to have an historic flight, but he does not know of it yet. He smiles at his chase pilot showing the “OK” sign and closes the cockpit of his steel friend — the newest unpowered rocket plane, X-15. It’s placed under the wing of a B52 bomber. They take off and go up to 45,000 feet. Joseph is calm and full of joy because he has been getting ready for this moment his whole life. He trusts his steel-winged friend like no other. The bomber drops the X-15. The rockets fire up, and with a fantastic thrust, Joe flies steeply toward the edge of space.
Okay, here you are, in the middle of the ocean. It’s endless, but you can’t see it. Because there’s a thick fog all around you. Dense clouds hide the huge but dim sun. Is it day or night?.. You don’t know. There’s only a gray haze around you. You’re alone. Even if you try to swim down, after several hours, you still won’t be able to see the bottom of the ocean... And that’s a typical water planet for you! I know, sounded kinda dark... But it’s not that bad! These water worlds are more interesting than they may seem, so let’s take a look at them.
If you’re struggling with opening a container or a jar, don’t exert yourself too much. Just run the lid under hot water for half a minute, then dry it for a better grip, and see how it “magically” opens.
You’re driving to your sister’s house when all of a sudden, the sky changes. The cool weather becomes scorching hot in a matter of minutes. People who were going for casual autumn strolls, have now taken off their jackets and are sweating. People who were planning on going for a weekend ski trip have canceled their plans at the last minute to head to the beach. It was sunset, but the sky has become as bright as day. You fish out your sunglasses and continue driving. Nothing seems normal, but people don’t seem to care.
Venus has exceptionally high temperatures, hot enough to melt lead. It’s the hottest planet in our Solar System, with a high-pressure environment and super-strong winds. The winds there are 50 times faster than the planet’s rotation. It’s getting stronger over time, and scientists don’t know why. But they did find something interesting in the planet’s clouds — a potential sign of decaying biological matter. Could there be life then? Not quite, since Venus has a dry, windy atmosphere and doesn’t have enough water for life to develop.
Sometimes, commercials are so effective that viewers start craving things they had never even heard of before. And later, they realize that these things don’t have any outstanding characteristics. This is why many people have a bunch of items at home that only collect dust.
Howdy partner! Have you ever been driving through the countryside and seen a boot hanging on a fence? No, it’s not some kind of weird new fashion statement — there’s actually some pretty special symbolism behind it.
People come up with the craziest ideas, don’t they? I mean, candies on a stick? How did we even get there, and why? And how about the name “lollipop”? Let’s look at some of the history and facts of the popular treat.
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.
Ever wondered what it would be like to hear the sound of a black hole? NASA has got you covered. Here is a screaming black hole. “Screaming, in space?” I thought in space, no one can hear you scream. Well, let me explain. Using a telescope, NASA examined the movements of hot gas in a cluster of galaxies in 2002. Then they converted what they found into a sonification. The sound — how should I put it politely — wasn’t appealing, but that’s okay. After all, you’re able to hear the noise hot gas produces in a cluster of galaxies 250 million light-years away. Hey, would you like to hear the sound gas produces right here on Earth? Uh, never mind.
Under the burning sun, among the sand dunes, somewhere in the Sahara Desert, you’re walking in search of an ancient treasure. Finally, you find a strange rock in the sand. It’s big, looks like a large piece of black coal or rock, but something shiny on its surface makes the rock unusual.This unique find is the oldest thing that has ever been discovered on our planet. This rock was born long before Earth appeared in outer space.
Something’s moving towards our planet that could end all life on Earth. It’s a regular needle weighing about 5 grams. You’re probably wondering why it’s so dangerous. Can something that small really do any harm? It’s hard to say, because it’s moving at the speed of light, and we don’t really know what will happen when it hits.That’s because the idea itself is hypothetical, so it leaves us with a bunch of questions. Here’s the first one: What happens to a sewing needle in space? Could it actually accelerate to the speed of light? The short answer is no. But it’s not that simple. In our universe, nothing that has mass can reach the speed of light. It takes energy to make any object go faster. Since there can’t be an infinite amount of energy, nothing can ever accelerate that much.

You’re standing on the bridge of your super-modern spaceship. Today, your mission is to fly to the uncharted areas of space. You travel past beautiful nebulae, spinning pulsars, and black holes. Soon, you’ll arrive at the planet where life might exist in the most unusual forms. You’ll “shake hands” with a strange bug the size of an elephant and maybe even establish diplomatic relations with it. This might happen in the future. For now, humanity is just trying to get farther into space.People first took to the air in 1783 when French engineers built the world’s first hot air balloon. But it only rose above the ground for a third of the height of the Statue of Liberty. In 1903, the Wright brothers made the first flight in a controlled airplane. Since then, people have been reaching higher and higher. These days, modern airplanes can climb to an altitude of 8 miles! It’s like 34 Empire State Buildings stacked one on top of another.
Hold on to your space helmets because NASA’s Curiosity rover has just stumbled upon the wildest rock formation ever! And on April Fool’s Day, isn’t that just the weirdest coincidence? The device captured some images with some rocks that look like dragon bones.Now, let me take you back to 2012 when Curiosity made its grand entrance on Martian soil. It was like the queen bee of rovers, the biggest and most capable one at the time. And boy, has it been making waves since then! It’s even discovered evidence of water and organic molecules on Mars. These findings were giant leaps in our quest to find out if Mars ever had its own little creatures.
50 ships and 20 airplanes have gone missing, many people have disappeared, and mysterious forces might have... Oh no, wait. The wrong script. This Bermuda triangle is located in Transylvania. My bad. So, once upon a time, in the heart of Transylvania, there was a mysterious place that people named “the Bermuda Triangle of Transylvania” [Hoia Baciu Forest]. Look at these twisted trees and their tangled undergrowth! It seems like some evil creature may appear from behind a tree at any moment — there might even be ghosts and mysterious creatures that came from space, as stories said.
Your kitchen sink is filled with dirty water. You’ve just washed the dishes, and you pull the plug out of the drain hole. Do you see how the water forms a funnel, and all the pieces of food get into its center? This is a small whirlpool. Now imagine that this is not a kitchen sink, but a sea with a several feet wide whirlpool. And it draws in not pieces of food, but a small boat. And you’re on this boat! You jump off the side and try to swim away, but the whirlpool is stronger than you. It attracts you despite your attempts to swim away. So, the first thing you should do is calm down. Yeah, it isn’t easy when the deep sea is trying to swallow you up. But if you don’t save your strength, you won’t be able to survive.
We dream of having a clean and tidy closet, but for some reason, it gets cluttered at times, and it’s hard for us to think about organizing it since it’s tedious. Here are some of the best tips and ideas to utilize every space in your closet so you can properly organize it.
