If you have a bottle of champagne that has recently gone flat, drop a raisin in it. The carbon dioxide left in the bottle will cling to all the grooves in the raisin and release back into the liquid, making it bubbly again. Source Source 2 Source 3
The New Year’s Eve confetti in NYC is literally made of people’s hopes and dreams. The Times Square Visitor Center wall is open year round for people to put Post-Its up with their next-year’s wishes. Those wishes are made into confetti, and thousands of dreams flutter across Times Square as the ball drops. Source
Privacy Pop has created something to make nap time even better – it’s called The Bed Tent! The Bed Tent is exactly what the name suggest – a tent that attaches to most beds (depending on the size) to create a dark little cocoon to sleep in peacefully. Not only does is block that little annoying light coming from the window, but it also shields you from the curious eyes of third parties! It’s also perfect for anyone who suffers from anxiety or just needs a minute alone. (Source)

According to legend, there was once a widowed father who was so poor, he feared his daughters could never marry and would have to resort to prostitution to get by. Wanting to help, St. Nicholas slid down their chimney one night, saw the girls’ laundered stockings hanging by the fire, and filled them with gold. This act of charity saved the girls from becoming hookers, and that’s why we hang stockings at Christmas. Source Source 2

If you try not to “catch” someone’s yawn, the urge gets even stronger and you’ll probably just end up yawning anyhow. Source Source 2
A movie theater in Paris recently held a screening of “Life of Pi” where viewers watched from boats lined up in a pool. This beats any reclining chairs, removable armrests or 3-D effects you may think are the definition of luxury. It’s like sailing across the ocean with Pi and Richard Parker! (Source)
The sequence where Mei gets lost attempting to deliver an ear of corn to her mother includes her sitting by a row of statues. In Japan, such statues represent the Bodhisattva Jizo, the Buddhist deity who is the protector of children. Thus, the effect Miyazaki is conveying is a subtle reassurance to the audience that Mei, although lost at the moment, is otherwise in no immediate danger while her sister and King Totoro are coming to her aid in the Cat Bus.
