    » 'What's great about this country is that America started the tradition where the richest consumers buy essentially the same things as the poorest. You can be watching TV and see Coca-Cola, and you know that the president drinks Coke, Liz Taylor drinks Coke, and just think, you can drink Coke, too. A Coke is a Coke and no amount of money can get you a better Coke than the one the bum on the corner is drinking. All the Cokes are the same and all the Cokes are good. Liz Taylor knows it, the president knows it, the bum knows it, and you know it."

    » In 1997, Atis Ruchirawat translated the script of the original Star Wars trilogy for subbing and dubbing in Thai. He didn't need the script, he said. He could recite the dialogue more or less by heart. He even knows the words Greedo and Jabba the Hutt say in their fictional language, though he does not care to speculate whether Greedo or Han Solo shot first. His scope of interest is boxed in by the film itself — he isn't concerned about the numerous spin-offs of the movies or unsolvable hypotheses.

    » The Lykov family retreated from civilisation in 1936. For four decades, they lived in isolation, in a home made from scavenged materials. They had no knowledge of World War II, of the atomic bombs, of the first landing on the Moon. They had prayer books and an old Bible to read. When these Old Believers fled into the Siberian taiga, the family consisted of four. The couple had two more children, who before their discovery by geologists in the summer of 1978 had never met anyone else.

    » English designer, sculptor and architect Thomas Heatherwick established the Heatherwick Studio in 1994. He created the Rolling Bridge at Paddington Basin in London, on his own volition. He reinvented the iconic red London bus, down to the fabric for the seats, treating the interior of the bus like an architectural space. Heatherwick then went on to represent his homeland with the design of the UK Pavilion at the Shanghai Expo in 2010 — the Seed Cathedral, a hairy rectangular structure made with 60,000 identical clear acrylic rods, which created a curvaceous geometric interior space holding 250,000 seed samples. Sunlight travelled through the length of each rod, lighting up the space, and cast different hues throughout the day.
