Jail house dreams: Someone looking to buy a home in the town of Guildhall, Vermont (U.S.), might be interested in a unique place: a 2,190-square-foot (203-square-metre) home that once belonged to the town’s jailer. Because of that, no one is surprised to learn that an actual jail is part of the deal. Attached to the house, the jail has seven cells that include bars. The house has changed hands numerous times since being built about 1880, but the jail has been left intact. However, the area’s real estate agents say that a renovation could turn the old lock-up into a lovely family living space.
Tattooed teacher: A schoolteacher in Essonne, France, may lose his job, but not because of a lack of teaching ability. Actually, Sylvian Helaine is very good at his job. The problem is that he has tattoos from head to toe, including on his face, and his superiors at his school have received complaints from parents. Apparently, some kindergarten children are afraid of him. In response, Helaine was moved from the kindergarten room to a class with older children. Known as Freaky Hoody on social media, he has a passion for getting tattoos, which he adamantly claims have no bearing on his ability to teach.

Smelly fish: There is a fish dish in South Korea that most people hate, but lovers of the delicacy can’t get enough of it. The dish is called hongeo (or hongeo-hoe) and it is well known in Korea. The fish used is naturally fermented skate, a bottom-dwelling species. Its smell resembles ammonia. The odour even permeates clothing, so some restaurants offer sealed bags to store guests’ jackets during the meal. First-time eaters are coached to breathe in through their mouths and out through their noses when eating it. After a few times, some get hooked on this dish.
Canine protection: Unbeknownst to his parents, a little boy from St. Louis, Missouri (U.S.), wandered away from home one morning. In bare feet and wearing only his pyjamas, Kh’amorion Taylor quickly became lost. However, a stray dog came to his rescue, staying by him as he toddled through unfamiliar streets. An anonymous woman noticed the duo, and started knocking on doors to see if anyone knew the boy. Eventually, after seeing a post on social media, the boy’s father was alerted, and a joyful reunion resulted. The story shows how protective a dog can be towards a human who is in trouble.
“It’s easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.”
- Frederick Douglass

“Great works are performed not by strength, but by perseverance.”               - Samuel Johnson
