Modern Mummies / Resurrecting the art of arrested decay MP3

Happy birthday to us: Incredible but true: Interesting Thing of the Day is 10 years old! We have all heard of people who had their bodies cryogenically preserved after death in the hope that some day, medical science will be able to bring them back to life and cure whatever illness caused their demise. That hope may be overly optimistic, but I can at least respect the logic behind the decision. Unlikely though it m... Source: itotd.com

    Giving Away the Razor, Selling the Blades / The curious strategy of loss-leader marketing MP3

    Happy birthday to us: Incredible but true: Interesting Thing of the Day is 10 years old! One day I opened up my mailbox, and there inside was a box from Gillette containing a brand-new Mach3 razor. It turned out that the box was addressed to my neighbor, which is just as well: the idea of shaving with a triple-blade razor seemed a bit—excuse me—over the edge. That was just a few years ago, and since t...

    One-Log House / Northern California's famous redwood attraction MP3

    I’ve always wondered about the expression “famous for being famous.” It seems to denote someone or something with no intrinsic appeal but with a high level of self-replicating buzz or hype. I can think of examples of famous people and things that seemingly don’t deserve to be famous, but what has always puzzled me is how that buzz about nothing gets started. In other words, how could I beco...

  • Light Pollution / Urban assault on the night sky

    Light Pollution / Urban assault on the night sky MP3

    I used to go for a walk every night. It was a pleasant habit—exercise, fresh air, quiet time alone to think. I made a point, whenever possible, of walking in an area away from the city lights, where the sky was dark enough that I could get a good look at the stars. I knew how to pick out some of the constellations, though I could never quite understand how anyone could see a goat or an archer in the patterns o...

    Pittsburghese / America's most underappreciated dialect MP3

    Happy birthday to us: Incredible but true: Interesting Thing of the Day is 10 years old! The city in which I grew up is a suburb of Pittsburgh—in the southwest corner of Pennsylvania, less than an hour’s drive from both Ohio and West Virginia. Decades ago, the region’s economy was largely based on the production of steel. Pittsburgh was a busy, thriving, industrial city, and the residentsâ€...

    Palais Idéal / The postman's palace MP3

    The topic of weird, elaborate structures built by wealthy eccentrics has come up repeatedly here at Interesting Thing of the Day—think of the Winchester Mystery House, Neuschwanstein Castle, and Hearst Castle, for instance. Today we add to that list a palace constructed in its entirety by an eccentric of modest means: a postman named Ferdinand Cheval. The story begins in 1879. Cheval, then 43 years old, had b...
