English teachers can either be the coolest teacher you ever had or the worst thing ever

"The reason we stare at the car crash across the street or why we can’t stop watching reality t.v shows, is because of one daunting thought: “at least my life isn’t like that.” Maybe you wake up everyday miserable, suffering with the crippling thought that your life isn’t going to make an impact on this big world. But at-least you’re not that man who may not be able to walk again. Or that face too heavily caked with make-up that everyone loves to laugh at."

Welsh house painter John Renie died in 1832. The unusual inscription on his grave takes the form of a grid, 19 squares across and 15 squares high. In each square is a letter.

You can make out some clear words. “Here” and “Lies” are in that in that string above, and you can see the start of “John.” But why the jumble?

After 170 years, a local TV station finally analyzed it, determining that it was a type of acrostic puzzle. Starting at the H in the very center and working outward, the sentence “Here Lies John Renie” can be read in 46000 different ways!

Some say he was trying to keep his soul safe from the devil by confusing him. Others say he was just having a bit of fun.

Koko the gorilla, is a female gorilla who is able to understand more than 1000 signs on the the American Sign Language system and over 2000 words of spoken English. 

Koko had a pet kitten, which she received on her birthday on July 1984. It was noted that Koko cared for that kitten as if it were a little baby gorilla. The kitten one day escaped from Koko’s cage and was hit by a car.

When she was told of what happened, this is how she responded.

It was also noted that afterwards she made weeping sounds like a human.
