They weren't dirty. He knew the Pap's would be waiting outside the stage door of EQUUS every night, so he'd bring the same outfit and wear it home every night.I'm pretty sure he had it washed.

The US national anthem's melody is based on an English song, BTW. (Another fun fact: the melody of "My Country Tis of Thee" is the same as "God Save the Queen" which is taken from a Prussian song, "Heil dir im Siegerkranz", 'coincidentally' the British monarchy is an extension of various German monarchies. So WWI was nothing more than a family feud, using millions of people as pawns.)

The divers were using an underwater communication system and the captive male beluga imitated their order to get out of the water and the diver surfaced thinking it was real. He had learned to imitate the patterns and frequency's of human speech, after several years he stopped doing it. Belugas rock :) they also shout like children in the wild, and the bump on their head is used for echolocation and scientifically called its "Melon"

This is a good one. And nowadays, for people who can only wear a shoe on one foot, there are groups/stores who sell single shoes, while only able to wear for example the left shoe. They let others buy the right shoe and vice versa. At least I know this is a (small though) thing in my country.
