An Eerie Town Where Everyone Wear Gas Masks:

The haunting photo above has, in recent months, taken on a new life. However, few seem to know the story behind it. The image shows members of the Young Pioneers youth group in Soviet Russia donning their gas masks during a civil defence drill near Leningrad in 1937. These days, the image appears to depict a people consumed by fear of war.Children between the ages of 10 and 15 joined the Young Pioneers and participated in sports, games, summer camps, and the like. Though membership was hypothetically voluntary, social pressure ensured that almost every child in that age range was a Pioneer. Whether practicing with grenades or shooting Germans, the Young Pioneers of the World War II era were forced to grow up all too fast.

The train that stops at a station everyday to pick up ONE passenger so she can get to school:

The Kami-Shirataki station in Hokkaido, Japan, is visited by a train twice a day, once in the morning and once in the afternoon, so that a schoolgirl can get to class and home on time. It has been stopping at a remote station for the past three years to pick up just one passenger.

Slap Kings is the top downloaded game in March:

This game called Slap Kings lets you slap your opponent for points. You can use these points to increase your health and power so you can slap better and also withstand a slap from your opponent better. Inspired by the famous slapping matches in Russia, available both on Android and iOS, Slap Kings has gotten VERY popular over this lockdown period, and we totally understand why, and is the most downloaded game for March 2020 across platforms
