On display today are two objects that we might take for granted in the modern world. But how they got there...well, that's the curious part.
Luck has a lot to do with the creation of new curiosities. Sometimes that luck is found in a random choice, and sometimes it's entirely out of our control. The results, though, are never boring.
Two well known subjects, two extraordinary stories. All part of today's tour through the Cabinet of Curiosities.

It's amazing how many types of stories can delight us. Some have horrible endings, and some fill us with delight. But either way, they pull us in and build us up. Here are some to do just that.
Some people are just different than the rest of us. They might focus that uniqueness into something great, or they might squander it on petty deeds. Either way, they leave us with amazing tales to enjoy.
Two tales that inexplicably set foot into the same legendary location. Although their individual journeys couldn't be more different.
Humans are so good at making things that those creations can inspire awe or fear, depending on the story. Let's explore two of them today.
Some people are just incredibly skilled at bringing delight to the rest of us. How they got there, and what their work entailed, though, is often a bit more curious.
