    This image is of the Lagoon Nebula, taken by the Hubble Telescope. It's a stellar nursery located 4,000 light-years away. The bright star in the center is Herschel - it's 200,000 times brighter than our sun.

    Jarrett Adams was falsely imprisoned for 10 years. He spent most of his time at the prison library studying law and eventually proved his innocence. He then became a lawyer to help free other people who have been falsely convicted.

    We see the name and iconic Bluetooth logo on virtually every device we own - headphones, speakers, even toothbrushes.

    Bluetooth is named after a 10th-century Scandinavian king. Harald "Blatand" Gormsson was a Viking king who ruled Denmark and Norway from the year 958 until 985.

    His greatest accomplishment is that he united Denmark and Norway under his rule. Gormsson was also known for his dead tooth, which had a very dark blue-grey shade. It was so prominent that his nickname was Blatand, which literally translates from Danish to "Bluetooth".

    Fast forward to 1996, when the tech was being discussed, an Intel representative Jim Kardash suggested the name and his reasoning was that like the king who united Scandinavia, Bluetooth intended to unite the PC and cellular industries.

    What nurseries do the saplings come from? Even 350 million is a lot? 350 million seeds is about 1 kg so maybe 350 million seeds sown.

    If you make a crow angry, it won't only hold a grudge, it will fly home and tell all his friends and family what a jerk you are.

    A Chinese city was forced to build a highway bridge around a tiny house after its owner refused to move and rejected every offer. When asked about his interesting living conditions, the owner claimed that living there is “quiet” and “liberating.”
