20 buildings that pretend to be something else, including a supermarket in a theater and a school in a mall
Would you like to live in a former prison? And study at the mall? In any case, people were not made any offers before they ended up in buildings that were previously used for a completely different purpose. It is obvious that not all buildings are universal, but this does not stop some businessmen from making a supermarket in the old theater building or converting it into a church into a grocery store. It sounds like a complete fiction, however, these are all real cases that actually happened. 16 buildings that pretend to be something else await you next! Bemorepanda collected some cool pics.

Nowadays, people are well aware of what and how to eat, what food is healthy, which is a rare delicacy. Restaurateurs go off their feet to surprise their sophisticated and demanding customers with new combinations of tastes. But it was not always so. Our ancestors made fundamental discoveries when they found a new way of cooking or found out which fruits are edible and can kill.
Unique and strange products that we eat
We at Bemorepanda have selected unique and strange products that are now well known to everyone. But how did people learn about their properties for the first time? How could one guess what to do with coffee beans, that honey is edible, and poisonous fish can be eaten? Internet users tried to answer these and other questions, and we share their answers with you. How do you think our ancestors learned about edible products? Share your opinion in the comments.
Someone looked at the mucous contents of an accidentally broken shell, and suddenly a bright thought came to his mind: “Let me taste this rubbish! ... Look, it's not bad! — youdontknowme6 / Reddit
What genius managed to pull off an experiment with coffee beans? After all, they first need to be fried. And then to realize that they can be ground ... Still tasteless. What if you add some water and boil it? Well, that's already something! This is how our ancestors came up with coffee in the morning! — OriginallyFromNYC / Reddit
Only a tiny part of this fish of the pufferfish family is edible, and the rest of the features are deadly poisonous! So how did the first gourmets of humanity know which piece of fish was edible? They probably cried and injected themselves, but ... they continued the experiments! — Michael_Stone_UDA / Reddit
Most likely, the fisherman who caught such a lobster decided and took a chance: “Well, he looks terrible with these claws of his. Let me try and see how it tastes...” — quoted / Reddit.
5. Gympie Gympie
The Gympie Gympie tree, or stinging tree, grows in Australia. It is also known as the suicide plant because its burn is so painful that local sources have reported that people and animals have even committed suicide to avoid the pain. This pain can last for weeks, months, or even years.
Stinging tiny hairs cover the entire plant, but someone (perhaps a smart native) discovered that if each hair was carefully removed from a mulberry-sized fruit, it was quite edible! Imagine how much people worked to ensure that the fruit could be eaten! — __hey__its__me__ / Reddit
6. Chili pepper
Imagine that you find this bright pepper pod, bite it with an appetite ... and feel that a volcano has flared up in your mouth! But this does not stop you, and you decide he is perfect! You start adding it to your dishes like a spice. -Edgar- / Reddit
All the sky stars must converge so that someone would be the first to suddenly think of combining the ingredients and baking bread! He took flour and yeast from somewhere, got salt - and here you are not a cake, but a loaf! spheroid / Reddit
When you meet a swarm of aggressive wild bees in the forest, which are so easy to anger, it will forever discourage you from climbing into their hollow. But someone took a chance and climbed in, giving humanity sweet fragrant amber honey! Thank him very much! — coconut-greek-yogurt / Reddit
People have always picked mushrooms. But how can you tell what is edible from what is not? No way - only guided by bitter experience. Take some pretty mushrooms, eat them raw, or even cook them, and you'll die. But if you boil them 3-5 times, everything will be in order! — anon/Reddit
The French must have been omnivores or very hungry since it occurred to them to collect slugs and cook hearty dishes from them! Not only that, but they also declared them a delicacy! — anon/Reddit
An exotic root crop from the South American continent is like our potato. It is common in hot countries, just like our potatoes. There is the same side dish, and they make flour from it.
But cassava is poisonous unless it is peeled and thoroughly cooked. If eaten raw or improperly cooked, one of its chemical components will be attacked by human digestive enzymes and release the deadly poison cyanide. Just two cassava roots can contain a lethal dose. But one ancient Indian from Peru or Bolivia still figured out how to cook cassava properly! — Nuovo/Reddit
Castoreum, or beaver stream, is a sweet-tasting exudate released from the glands of the beaver, with which the animal marks territory. It has a powerful creosote odor and is used as an odor fixative in perfumery. And it is also used by some culinary specialists (though secretly).
For example, Blue moon contains the secret ingredient that gives Blue Moon its vanilla and berry flavors - gourmets suspect the product is spiced with castoreum. Who came up with the idea to add this “beautiful smell” to food? — BCProgramming / Reddit
13. Yogurt and cheese
At first, people drank fresh milk directly from under the cow. But they wanted to save some for later, and that's how sour cream, butter, cheese, and yogurt were born. Or maybe everything is more straightforward - the products turned sour, and I had to strain my brains and prepare fermented milk products. — NCCAM/Reddit
14. Blue cheese
The first one who declared it a cool delicacy, most likely, got hungry and went to the pantry for cheese. There he saw that the cheese was covered with mold, absolutely all! “So what? I’ll eat it anyway,” the gourmet decided and ate it. And so as not to point fingers at him, he declared moldy cheese the most expensive and best. — chayne108 / Reddit
This Viking dish is, in fact, rotten and then dried shark meat. Shark meat is unsuitable for food, but the ancient Icelanders were not at a loss and came up with a way to cook it - do not throw away the caught fish!
The Greenland shark is gutted and decapitated, then placed in a shallow hole, covered with sand and gravel, and pressed down with rocks to drain the liquid. So the shark is fermented for as long as 6-12 weeks, after which the carcass is cut into strips and hung to dry for several months. The crust on the meat is removed and then cut into small pieces and served. — msvivica / Reddit
The plant, which lives in the southern United States, has edible leaves. Well, how edible? Eating them raw will make you sick or even die, as the whole plant contains a neurotoxin that causes respiratory paralysis. The toxin will still kill you if you boil or fry the leaves.
How can this be edible? The Indians found the recipe! If you boil three times, drain the water three times, and only then fry the leaves, then perhaps you will eat and stay alive! — Kulladar / Reddit.
17. Maple Syrup
It was invented where a lot of maples grow - in Canada. A curious mind suggested: "Let's poke a hole in this tree, collect the juice, boil it for three days and see what happens!" — lovelyb1ch66 / Reddit.
It's just a cereal that grew itself and did not touch anyone. But a wise guy looked at a bunch of thick grass and thought: “Let me take these spikelets and dry them, break them, then polish them and cook them. Let's see what happens!"

The cactus, known to us as prickly pear, whose fruit has been a staple food in Mexico for thousands of years. They still eat it now, cutting off the thorns - it tastes like green beans, and the texture is tender, crispy, and juicy. The first gourmets did not see that the cactus pads were covered with sharp thorns. "It's nothing! I bet this cactus tastes amazing!” — ThePeasantKingM / Reddit.
It is now truffles served in Michelin-starred restaurants for big money, and the first person who appreciated them most likely herded pigs in an oak grove. “What is it that my piglet is rummaging under a tree and eating with appetite? It must taste damn good if pigs eat it!” — anon/Reddit.

Then you put it in lye water for a couple more days. And at the end, you put it back in clean water, cook, and eat. Why so much work to spoil the fish? — anon/Reddit
Five points to the one who first thought of rolling out the dough thinly, then cutting it into long strips. It turns out delicious! buzzbuzzwakeup / Reddit

31. Aki fruit
Even though most of this fruit is poisonous, it is still eaten. In Jamaica, aka is considered the national fruit and delicacy. They do not cook poisonous seeds but fresh hard peel. How was anyone able to figure this out in the first place? Xero-theory / Reddit
It is hard to believe, but there used to be so many sturgeon, beluga, and stellate sturgeon that caviar was the food of poor fishermen. Once upon a time, they walked knee-deep on it ... - jack28415 / Reddit

How did these drinks become popular? They were created by accident, and the sales went: “Look, this is not so bad for our business!” — Zeruvi/Reddit.

Nothing human is alien, even to representatives of the royal families. And if, before the mass appearance of cameras, the ordinary life of monarchs was more of intricacies of myths, conjectures, and mysteries, then with the advent of photography, we got a previously absent chance to look behind the screen and find out how these same monarchs lived and how they behaved in ordinary life.
Photos where the Queen changes the wheel on the car and eats with his hands
One of the brightest representatives of this "life for the show" is Elizabeth Alexandra Mary, better known as Elizabeth II. She was not embarrassed by the camera, so you can still find many photographs from infancy and old age on the Internet.
1. Princess Elizabeth II in a stroller at six months:
2. Walk with your nannies and stroller with your sister, Princess Margaret:
3. Standing in front of her "playhouse" given to her by the people of Wales:
4. Riding a tricycle:
5. Posing with his dogs in a house in Piccadilly, London:
Queen Elizabeth II was a respected public figure, welcoming foreign officials to state dinners, opening parliament sessions, and watching her subjects smile from their banknotes.
His face appeared on Andy Warhol's tape paintings, on towels or cups, was honored by poets such as Simon Armitage, or mocked by singers such as the punk band Sex Pistols. The Queen seemed to be above criticism and public figures such as the Pope or the Dalai Lama. Even the most vocal critics of the monarchy said, "the Queen has done a good job, though."
How did he achieve this feat in his public image? According to Politico, Elisabeta managed to use the virtue of silence. Refusing to express her own opinion, the queen remained silent and enigmatic. Showing the public only a neutral and vague facade, while no one in the general public had access to the honest Elizabeth, she became the most successful sovereign of recent times.
Behind the symbol was a person. Born by cesarean section on April 21, 1926, Elizabeth was the first daughter of a prince who, although second in line, did not look like he would become king. Home Secretary William Joynson-Hicks was present at her birth, as custom dictates that such an official must ensure that the baby is not swapped, by a plot, for another.
Young Elizabeth grew up in the heart of London, in a 25-room palace with a ballroom and an enormous garden. Although in childhood photographs, she appears with her loving parents, Elizabeth and her sister Margaret were raised by an army of servants and teachers and rarely saw their parents. Her first word was not her mother but "Bobo," one of the nannies who raised her.

This was by his side all his life, and he never gave interviews. She was rewarded with a special status in Buckingham Palace for her fidelity. Other people who raised her were practically erased from the family's memory when they spoke to the media. The monarchy came first, before the person.
At 13, in 1939, the young Elisabeta met the man who would become her husband during a visit to Dartmouth Naval College. At 19, the Greek Philip was worldly, exotic, and raised in Paris in exile. He didn't get along with his family: three sisters were married to Nazis, the father threw the family's money into the casinos of Monte Carlo, and the mother had schizophrenia. The young princess fell in love with this rebel, who she said looked like a "Viking god."
We don't know much about their relationship. Elisabeta's mother was initially opposed to the relationship, but the two young people persevered and managed to get engaged in 1947. We can learn something about young Elisabeta's feelings in a rare letter to a friend. Page after page, she writes about how they went dancing together in nightclubs, how they were followed by a photographer - the words of a young woman whose heels were on.
Elizabeth's wedding to Philip in November 1947 was supposed to be a proper, austere party. Sugar in Britain was still rationed, and many British cities were littered with the rubble of houses destroyed in the bombings.
The country was still facing significant financial problems following the war. However, the wedding was an excuse for festivities that swept the country. Thousands of guests worldwide came to London to attend the wedding, including King Mihai.
Finally, a good party - an excuse for the people to forget, for a few moments, the torment of war and recession and put their hopes in a young and beautiful couple. Everything seemed to signal a new beginning, and the optimistic atmosphere grew in 1949 and 1951.
Then, at just 27, Elizabeth became queen after her father died. The years 1952-1953 seem to have brought, with these challenges, quite a lot of misunderstandings in the young couple's life. Philip felt useless and distanced himself from his wife as Elizabeth took control of the country.
Elisabeta became close to one of her childhood friends, Henry Herbert. The four children of the royal couple were raised by servants and sent to boarding schools. On a lucky day, they could see their parents for half an hour.
