Russian girl Julia Zlata, who's able to bend herself into the most improbable shapes has broken several world records for her unbelievable flexibility.



It was a viciously cold morning in Lengby, Minnesota, when a man discovered his 19-year old neighbor, Jean Hilliard, lying in the snow. Her whole body was frozen solid from the night before, when temperatures dropped twenty-five degrees below zero. Apparently, Jean was trying desperately to reach her neighbor for help when her car skidded off the road. When her body was discovered she was immediately sent to the local hospital, where her condition stunned the doctors. One of the nurses said that Jean was “so cold, it was like reaching into a freezer” and that “her face was absolutely white, just this ashen, death look.” Jean was also seriously frostbitten, and none of her limbs would bend or move.
The hospital staff did everything possible, yet the situation was dire. Even if Jean were to regain consciousness, she would more than likely have severe brain damage, and she was frostbitten to the degree that both her legs would have to be amputated. Her family gathered in prayer, hoping for a miracle. 2 hours later, Jean went into violent convulsions, and regained consciousness. She was perfectly fine, mentally and physically, although a bit confused. Even the frostbite was slowly disappearing from her legs to the doctors’ amazement. She was released 49 days later without losing a single finger, and sporting only minor scars.

The oldest surviving love poem is 
written on a clay tablet from the times of the Sumerians, inventors of writing around 3500 BD, and was given a very un-romantic name by archaeologists: 'Istanbul #2461'. Not quite Shakespeare.

Bridegroom, dear to my heart,
Goodly is your beauty, honeysweet,
Lion, dear to my heart,
Goodly is your beauty, honeysweet.

Kawhi (pronounced like the Hawaiian island) Leonard plays for the NBA’s San Antonio Spurs. In the age of Stephen Curry, many people forget about players like Leonard, even if they do command $94 million contracts.

Per the March 2016 Sports Illustrated, “he was named Finals MVP in 2014, captured Defensive Player of the Year in ’15 and this season seized the unofficial title of best two-way player in the NBA.” 

If you don’t follow the Spurs, you may not be familiar with Kawhi Leonard. He doesn’t care, and it’s not false humility. He simply doesn’t go for the glitz and glamour and doesn’t feel the need to hog the spotlight. He just wants to play ball. In an interview with Sports Illustrated, Leonard explained, “I don’t like to bring attention to myself. I don’t like to make a scene….I could be on the court for two hours and it felt like 10 minutes. It made time go by.”

Don’t think that he plays ball because he can’t do anything else, though. Leonard loves math and spent two years at San Diego State University before he was selected as the15th overall pick in the 2011 NBA draft. And how have those math skills paid off? The Root notes that he “spends his summers in a two-bedroom apartment in San Diego…[and] drives a rehabbed ’97 Chevy Tahoe, nicknamed Gas Guzzler.” Why? He told SI, “It runs, and it’s paid off.”

While other stars are buying mansions, collecting luxury cars, and dropping “Benjamins” at the casino while bathing in Cristal, Leonard enjoys his modest lifestyle anddropping “Benjamins” at the casino while bathing in Cristal, Leonard enjoys his modest lifestyle and prefers his unlimited supply of wings from his Wingstop sponsors and he isn’t too proud to use his free coupons even if he is pulling in over $20 million a year.

U.S Presidents must pay for food in the White House? You may be asking yourself how one of the most important men in the world can have to pay for his own family's food when almost every desire he could ever want is at the snap of his fingers. It works in a simple manner, whatever food the first family or friends consume is written down on a bill and presented to them at the end of the month. But its not just food; toothpaste, toilet paper and nearly every commodity they personally use must be paid for by Mr. Obama, luckily for the president the bill is only for times that are not official state functions. Nancy Reagan said and I quote " Nobody ever told us the president and his wife are charged for every meal, as well as occidentals such as drycleaning, toothpaste and other toiletries".

Finally, the lost Egyptian city of Heracleion has been revealed after spending 1,200-years under sea. Researchers discovered amazingly well-preserved artifacts 30-feet under the surface of the Mediterranean Sea in Aboukir Bay, near Alexandria that tell the story of a vibrant classical-era port.  According to the Telegraph: "Leading research now suggests that Thonis-Heracleion served as a mandatory port of entry for trade between the Mediterranean and the Nile." Researchers say that the immense weight of large buildings on the region's water-logged clay, combined with sand soil, may have caused it to sink in the wake of an earth!
