The “Hunchback of Notre-Dame” was written mostly just about architecture. But it's not dry or boring, I promise! In Victor Hugo wrote the “Hunchback of Notre-Dame” to inform people of the value of Gothic architecture which was neglected and destroyed at the time. That's why the book is full of beautiful descriptive passages informing readers about this special style of architecture. Next up, we have something less literary but no less interesting: did you know that submarine crew members have special suits they can put on in case of an emergency? It's true! Submarine Escape Immersion Equipment acts as a one-man life raft. If a submarine is downed and there is no submarine rescue vehicle nearby, the crew puts on special pressurized suits which float them to the top. Last but not least, we've got an odd disorder called Rapunzel Syndrome, which causes sufferers to pull out and eat their hair. To be fair, though, only the pulling part always occurs – the eating part may or may not happen.
