$169 HOT DOG You won’t find this treat at the ballpark. The most expensive hot dog sells for $169 at a Seattle, Washington, restaurant. Called the Juuni Ban, the foot-long hot dog is topped with high-end toppings such as Wagyu beef, shaved black truffles, caviar, and Japanese mayonnaise, all served in a brioche bun. What, no ketchup? —Molly Marcot FINNED MAN CONQUERS HURDLES Think leaping over hurdles during a race is hard? Try doing it with flippers. Christopher Irmscher of Germany can run the 100-meter hurdles wearing swim fins in 14.82 seconds, the fastest on record. Not bad, considering that’s only about two seconds slower than the world record without flippers. So why wear swim fins in the first place? Uh, we have no idea. —B.F.

The Greek goddess Athena and her sacred owl appeared on coins minted over 2,000 years ago. Botswana’s currency is named pula, or rain, which is valuable in this desert nation.

Fibers from the abaca plant, a close relative of the banana plant, are used in Japanese banknotes. In the Netherlands in 1636, tulips were so valuable that some cost as much as a hous.

this or that?

CHOOSE THIS: Stack monuments all the way to the moon’s surface. CHOOSE THAT: Stack hamsters to the height of a famous monument.

amazing animals

Mommy Mix-up Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, South Africa Watch out: Baby animal ahead! While driving through a national park, visitors spotted a newborn wildebeest racing behind a blue car. When the vehicle came to a stop, the tiny calf nuzzled a tire and even tried to drink milk from it. The youngster might’ve been wondering: Are you my mom? Since the calf was probably only about a day old, the newborn likely hadn’t completely bonded with its mother yet, African wildlife expert Markus Hofmeyr says. So when it was separated from its mom, the baby wildebeest had a strong instinct to follow any large moving object. The behavior keeps very young calves close to their mothers and their herd, which can protect them from predators like lions and jackals. The calf followed the vehicle for…
