Only 3 world trade center style buildings were ever built in the entire world. The only remaining building is the Nationwide HQ in Columbus Ohio.

As this Tumblr post says, Osamu Tezuka supposedly worked at this bakery in Yanaka, Tokyo, Japan. It's called "The Atom Bakery" now and sells Western-style baked goods, such as croissants, and is decorated with several Astro Boy knickknacks. Also, their oven is made from volcanic rock from Mount Fuji.

If you take a green onion and snip off all but the bulb and put it in water (not submerging it) it will grow another green onion within 3 weeks. I have been doing this for months. I will never have to buy green onions again!!!

If you can smell it, it's airborne molecules are in your nose.

When you brush your teeth, you're not supposed to just brush your teeth; you are supposed to brush your entire mouth: inside your cheeks, the roof of your mouth, tongue, under your tongue, your lips and gums. Most people just brush their teeth and gums and neglect the rest of their mouth.

Also, floss.

Back in 2013 when I wrote my story "Dragon Rider" I had imagined SpaceX taking over the Apollo launch complex 39. Well, it seems that prediction came true last year, and for the very same reason that I dreamed up.

Spooky! It's ironic how those things can happen.

Martin Luther King Jr and Anne Frank were both born in 1929, though many people consider them both to be originally from completely different generations.
