20 Discoveries People Have Made That Prove Wonder Is Always Just Around the Corner

It’s always exciting to find an Easter egg from the universe. A unique genetic feature you’re stuck with since birth but noticed just recently, or a weird ancestral inheritance, or even your own doppelgänger carved of wood in another country. Things like this prevent us from growing disinterested in the world around us and force us to keep our eyes wide open for new discoveries.

Bright Side collected 20 pics showing that you can never guess where you will encounter the unexpected.
