Slippery soap: A silky bar of scented soap is always nice to have in the shower, but a soap maker in Lebanon has taken that idea several steps further. The family-owned Bader Hassen & Sons factory in Lebanon, makes exclusive skincare products, but perhaps none more so than its Khan Al Saboun brand of soap. One expensive bar costs about $2,800 (USD), because it contains gold and diamond powder, along with olive oil, honey, essential oils, and fragrance. 


Big fight: It must have been a whopper of an argument! An Italian man and his wife, who live in a town north of Milan, Italy, had a spat one night. The husband decided the best thing to do was to go for walk to “cool down.” While that’s often a good way to start the process of making up, the man took his walk many steps further, literally! He kept going for about 420 kilometers (261 mi.)! His flight from the fight lasted about a week, during which time he received food from strangers. His wife had reported him missing, and the police finally caught up with him.

Pricey pigeon: A bird lover might buy a parrot or a finch for company, but few will spend over a million dollars for a feathered friend. That actually happened in Belgium, although the bird in question is not a pet. It’s a racing pigeon named New Kim and was owned by the Van De Wouwer family. The respected breeder put New Kim up for auction, and to everyone’s surprise, a bidding war took place before New Kim sold for €1.6 million. Racing pigeons are valuable, both as breeding birds and as racers. In a race, the pigeons are released at a measured distance from their homes. The winner is the first one to return home. 

Leafy talent: Lito, an artist in Japan who has attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), has found the perfect way to focus his active mind. He carves incredibly intricate scenes into tree leaves, spending many hours on each one. Lito imagines playful scenes and then sets out to make them. For example, one portrays an anteater sticking its long tongue into an anthill to find a treat. Another features a rhinoceros brushing its baby’s teeth. Lito has carved a herd of sheep jumping over a fence and a family of fish swimming amongst seaweed, and many more! His work has appeared on social media.
