Comedian Rodney Dangerfield's Tombstone


There goes the neighborhood.

Baby Cages


They were designed in a more innocent age and with the best of intentions.

With this wire enclosure, parents didn’t need to leave the house to give their children a healthy dose of sunshine and fresh air. The only problem was that the cage was suspended precariously off the side of a building.

The idea behind the cages was patented in America in 1922 as a means to help parents living in cities who didn't have much space. The cages were also distributed to members of the Chelsea Baby Club who lived in high buildings and had no gardens.

This incredible picture taken in the 1930s shows a baby suspended high up from their parents' window.

Titanic Mystery Solved with DNA


DNA solved a 70-year-old question of whether Loraine Allison survived the Titanic crash. Many have wondered what happened to the two-year-old little girl who disappeared from the crash more than 100 years ago.

The story begins with Hudson and Bess taking their two kids, Trevor, seven months, and Loraine, two years of age, across the Atlantic on the Titanic. At the time of the sinking, it is said that Trevor was rushed to a lifeboat by their maid and that the other three died on the boat. However, only Hudson’s body was found, leaving the mystery of what happened to Loraine and her mother.

The unknown remained until 28 years later when Helen Kramer came forward on a radio show called “We the People”, and said that she was the two-year-old missing girl. Only a few of the distant relatives believed her story, but immediate family members denied the claims and kept her out of the inheritance.

When Helen died in 1992 the claims seemed to have died with her. However, in 2012 the granddaughter of Helen, Debrina Woods, resurfaced the claims by saying she had inherited more evidence from her grandmother and that the truth should be told.

With all of this evidence, and with a desire to solve this case, a group of Titanic researchers put together a project to help unlock the mystery.

They did just that, by convincing descendants from each family to have a DNA test done.

The results from the tests show that there is not a relationship between the two families, suggesting that this was a hoax or a complete misunderstanding.

Why do pools make your eyes red?


A long day at the pool can be hard on the eyes. 

When you emerge from the water after a few hours, your eyes tend to sting and might even be bloodshot. 

Unfortunately, that's not a side effect of chlorine. Nope, it's grosser. It's what happens when chlorine mixes with all the nasty stuff that comes out of people's bodies in the pool.

"The nitrogen in the urine combines with the chlorine and it forms what's known as chloramine and it's actually chloramine that causes the red eyes," Michele Hlavsa of the CDC's healthy swimming program said.

"It's not the chlorine itself. It's chlorine mixed with poop and sweat and a lot of other things we bring into the water with us."

An Asteroid Nearly Wipes Out The Largest City On Earth In 1908


At 7:17 AM on June 30, 1908, a burning hunk of rock blasted across the skies of Russia, finally exploding with the force of 1,000 Hiroshima bombs. 

An area of trees spanning 800 square miles was instantly flattened. People were knocked to the ground over 40 miles away. The blast was felt on the other side of the continent.

The Tunguska asteroid remains the biggest modern impact. By sheer fluke, it landed in a remote stretch of wilderness. Almost nobody was hurt, although a handful of deaths were recorded. 

A tiny twist of cosmic fate, and things could have been a lot worse. While the Tunguska explosion would have been devastating over any town or city, if it arrived six hours earlier, it would have hit the largest city on Earth: London.
