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.
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.

A giant, roiling mountain of a thundercloud is moving towards you. It’s completely black and goes in stark contrast with the bright blue sky right above and behind you. You see a blinding flash and, in a few seconds, a deafening whip-like crack of thunder. And then, the rain starts gushing down from above.

Thanks to paleontologists and fossil records, scientists have been able to reveal more about what walked the Earth long before we did — many of the creatures mentioned below in the article lived around 500 million years ago.
Some things we simply cannot logically explain, leaving us stumped for an answer, like the coincidence of your newborn baby looking exactly like the doll from a parenting class. What really confuses our mind though is the unexplainable, like a tentacled monster appearing from a building or a car filled with grass. Such sights make life even more interesting and imaginative by keeping us guessing.

While there aren’t any official statements on this, it’s known that around 60 babies have been born in the sky, and they’re known as “skyborne” or “airborne.” A plane is not the delivery room a future mother would dream about, but it could happen, and it has in the past — and in some cases, the newborn received special gifts and privileges.
Sometimes people can be completely and utterly unpredictable. We are all guided by impulses or by our intuition and we do things that, perhaps, we would not have done before.

When reading the news or novels or watching movies or series like The Crown, it is common to see princesses, duchesses, counts, and marquises. These distinctions were made in the past, and unlike today, they actually came with a certain amount of legal and fiscal privileges. In modern times, their meaning has evolved into something more discreet. Nowadays, being the bearer of one of these titles does not necessarily imply having special privileges or even land, it’s just meant to be merely an honorary and symbolic distinction.

Cultural differences can sometimes lead to embarrassing or confusing situations. Imagine being born in the UK, India, or Australia and traveling anywhere else.
