The world we think we live in is almost certainly not the world we actually live in .

Scientifically speaking, there are numerous examples which would illustrate Nietzsche’s point: the Sun appears to go around the Earth…and yet many of the stars that we see at night time are actually greatly changed or even dead.

In colonial America, lobster wasn’t the delicacy it is today. In fact, it was so cheap and plentiful, It was a staple for prisoners and servants.

One group of servants from Massachusetts actually grew so tired of eating lobster that they took their employers to court, where a judge ruled that lobster was to be served to them no more than three times a week.
