Big cell phone: When his newly purchased cell phone arrived on the doorstep in a large, unwieldy box, a young Thai man might have figured that something wasn’t quite right. The fellow had ordered the phone online because the price was so low. Unfortunately, he didn’t read the small print before adding it to his online cart and paying for it. What arrived at his house was definitely not the mobile phone he’d been waiting for. Instead, the box contained a coffee table. But the coffee table was shaped like a cell phone, complete with an on-off button and rose gold edging. The lesson here is to carefully check the details before buying!
Big bug: A woman from Brisbane, Australia, got the shock of her life while on an outing in the surrounding area with her husband and grandson. Pam Taylor discovered the biggest moth she had ever seen on a tree branch. In fact, it was larger than her outstretched hand. She took a photo of the insect beside her hand and posted it on social media. Members of the Facebook group called Amateur Entomology Australia identified the moth as a giant wood moth scientifically known as Endoxyla cinereus. Viewers of the post were amazed at the sight of the beautiful insect, which is common in the eastern coastal areas of Australia, although the specimen found by Taylor was larger than most.
River house: The Loire River meanders its way through France and empties into the Bay of Biscay on the country’s Atlantic Ocean coastline. In the middle of this waterway near the town of Lavau-sur-Loire, a building is tilted and appears to have been caught in a flood. In reality, the structure is a large-scale work of art created by Jean-Luc Courcoult for the Estuaire Art Exhibition in 2007. Known as La maison dans la Loire (The House in the Loire), this building catches the attention of riverbank strollers. The building is secured to the riverbed so it won’t float away. At night, a light comes on in one of the windows, eerily glowing over the waterscape.
Timeline: Two islands in the Bering Sea belong to different countries: Big Diomede and Little Diomede. The former belongs to Russia and the latter to the United States. Although less than five kilometers (3.1 miles) apart, the time on Big Diomede Island is almost a full day ahead of that on Little Diomede Island. So, when it’s noon on a Thursday in Little Diomede, it’s 9 a.m. on Friday on Big Diomede. That’s because the International Date Line runs right between the two islands. So, if someone stands on Little Diomede (“Yesterday Island”) and looks west, toward Big Diomede (“Tomorrow Island”), they are looking into the future, and vice versa.
