What would happen if we didn’t have access to the Internet or worse had no Internet at all? Probably, we would never see the photos of 4000 years old remains of a woman trying to protect and save a child from a massive earthquake and floods in 2000 BC, also referred to as “China’s Pompeii”.
But there are people in this world that still don’t have accessibility to things that we sometimes take for granted. So let’s take a moment to be grateful for all the information sources that we have access to and check out this collection of quite interesting things existing around us!
