Aerogel, also know as frozen smoke, is the world’s lowest density solid, clocking in at 96% air. If you hold a small piece in your hand, it’s practically impossible to either see or feel, but if you poke it, it’s like styrofoam. It supports up to 4,000 times its own weight and can withstand a direct blast from two pounds of dynamite. It’s also the best insulator in existence.

Giant, awesome ‘tree lobster’ survived 80 years in hiding... In the early 20th century, a British trade ship crashed on the South Pacific island that these stick insects inhabited, and black rats from its hold took over the island and ate all the bugs.

The Sweet Escape by Richard Silvera

Always have eggs in your fridge. You just never know when someone will split their head open, or cut their finger while cooking, and so on. See that membrane there? While the blood is gushing - hold pressure and crack open an egg. Peel that there membrane off and put it on the wound (continue holding pressure). The membrane will harden and keep the wound closed until you can get to the ER for stitches. If you even need them that is. Nature: 1, Band aids: 0

However, it is a very unique and cool piece of art and reinforces the cultural differences to mermaids and their legends.
