In 1957, two sisters Joanna (11) and Jacqueline Pollock (6) were tragically killed in a motor accident in Northumberland, England. One year later, their mother gave birth to twins Jennifer and Gillian. Remarkably, the younger twin, Jennifer, had birth marks on her body in exactly the same place as Jacqueline had them. The coincidences don’t stop there, either. by john

He introduced four pairs of mice, and within a year they had multiplied to 620.

the cap came from a utility standpoint. Lice, scabies and multitudes of other infestations were common in the late 1800s. When the first nurse training programs began, Women were the majority of students and most of them had the traditionally long hair of the day. To keep their hair from becoming infested, they placed it in a bun and covered it with a cap. As hairstyles evolved, so did the caps. Shorter and more easily washable hairstyles dictated that the caps be more looks oriented. by freida

They wanted to record the moments when their children were made aware of gender stereotypes; when they were directed towards a view of the world in which girls and boys inhabit separate, rigid spheres of pink and blue – the first sphere passive, pretty and gentle, the second aggressive, active and strong. The results were tweeted under the title Baby Gender Diary. by liliana
