If there ever is a tourist town worth a visit, it’s the municipality of Bulls.
What’s so special about this small town sixty kilometers (37 miles) north of Wellington, New Zealand?
It’s a town of full of bull puns.
It welcomes visitors with its first round of wordplay, a sign that says:
The town is named after an English settler named James Bull who opened the settlement’s first store back in 1862.
No one knows when it started but the residents of Bull Town seem to be inordinately fond of puns. They admire puns so much, they have named their local businesses, churches, and even administration buildings using puns.
Bull puns, that is.
Like the police station, library, boutique, and information center.
While there’s not much a worldly tourist can see in Bulls, except the usual small town buildings and shops, visitors with an eye for the quaint will enjoy quite a word-y sightsee.
Like the public toilets, trash cans, the bank, and a cafe:
The town does have museum housed in turn-of-the-century stables. It contains artifacts used by early settlers, and an extensive World War I rifle collection. The museum also boasts of an art gallery selling local artists’ work, gifts, and antiques.
Confused visitors need not worry about directions, though.
The street signs are clear for anyone to see.
Visitors wanting a look-see at the town’s administrative buildings can take a gander at this cheerful sight:
For socia-bull people only.
In the meantime, no one needn’t worry about illness.
The medical clinic guarantees a solution for every ailment:
It’s a place where even the advertising gets bullish:
And street art subjects display e-bull-itions of color.
The municipality even has a sister city in England. It’s name? Cowes.
Well, that’s just unbelieva-bull!
Questions that No One Knows the Answer To
These are the questions that not even the most brilliant minds can answer!
We've come a long, long way as humans from being absolutely clueless about the world around us to being hyper-aware of the mysteries of our planet, space, time, and all those fun concepts that both scientists and philosophers wonder about. In a span of about a hundred and fifty years we went from a society that just barely scratched the surface on electricity to one that has the Internet right in the palm of our hands!
But despite how advanced we are in technology, there are still a lot of unanswered questions that we're getting no closer to finally answering. Here are some questions that have stumped even the most brilliant minds that have ever existed.
Keep in mind that this is a TED talk by TED curator Chris Anderson that's quite long. But we guarantee that after watching this entertaining and strangely enlightening video, you'll feel some semblance of an existential crisis settling in - and yet, it will make you feel more aware of the world around you....
