Real “Tardis” Police Boxes in Glasgow, Scotland
Have you ever wondered what the deal is with Doctor Who’s Tardis? What is a Police Box anyway?
Police boxes were real and graced the streets of Britain from 1923 when the first one was built in Sunderland. They reached the streets of London from 1928. The purpose of their construction was so that Police officers could keep in touch with headquarters. Some were also for use by members of the public for calling the Police in the event of an emergency. While almost all of the original boxes are now gone, less than ten remain nationwide with most of them (like this one) on the streets of Glasgow, Scotland.

A government-run website promoting tourism boasts that every day the Dutch eat at least 750,000 slices of bread topped with the chocolate sprinkles called hagelslag(‘‘hailstorm’’), making it the country’s most popular bread topping.

"Chimpanzees, gorillas, orangutans have been living for hundreds of thousands of years in their forest, living fantastic lives, never overpopulating, never destroying the forest. I would say that they have been in a way more successful than us as far as being in harmony with the environment."
