UPS trucks don’t turn left. Their policy to never turn across oncoming traffic, even when it shortens their routes, reduces traffic collisions and delays, so they plan routes that avoid left turns whenever possible. This reportedly cuts their number of trucks by 1,100, saves 10 million gallons of fuel and emits 22,000 fewer tons of carbon dioxide per year, and lowers the annual distance traveled by 28.5 million miles.  (, , )

A legendary demon cat is said to haunt the Capitol Building in Washington, DC. The cat allegedly appears before major tragedies and was reportedly seen by White House guards shortly before both JFK and Abe Lincoln were assassinated. Though the cat hasn’t been seen in years, some say a set of paw prints in the floor by the Old Supreme Court Chamber are proof of its existence.  (, )
