The Greek myth on the soulmate
According to Aristophanes in Plato’s Symposium, humans originally consisted of four arms, four legs, and a single head made of two faces, but Zeus feared their power and split them all in half, condemning them to spend their lives searching for the other half to complete them. And once they found each other their greatest wish must be to be wealded together for good.
“[Primeval man] could walk upright as men now do, backwards or forwards as he pleased, and he could also roll over and over at a great pace, turning on his four hands and four feet, eight in all, like tumblers going over and over with their legs in the air; this was when he wanted to run fast …Terrible was their might and strength, and the thoughts of their hearts were great, and they made an attack upon the gods … Doubt reigned in the celestial councils. Should they kill them and annihilate the race with thunderbolts, as they had done the giants, then there would be an end of the sacrifices and worship which men offered to them; but, on the other hand, the gods could not suffer their insolence to be unrestrained. At last, after a good deal of reflection, Zeus discovered a way. He said: ‘I have a plan which will humble their pride and improve their manners; men shall continue to exist, but I will cut them in two and then they will be diminished in strength and increased in numbers; this will have the advantage of making them more profitable to us. They shall walk upright on two legs, and if they continue insolent and will not be quiet, I will split them again and they shall hop about on a single leg.’ ”
—Aristophanes, Plato’s Symposium
UK designer Duncan Shotton aims to relive the tradition of milk delivery with his Full-Fat Milk Doorstop.
This simple design is made from a glass bottle filled with solid white resin that looks like milk. The top is sealed with a re-enforced foil and the base is held in place with a transparent anti-slip disc. The whole piece weighs a hefty 1.2kg that keeps doors in their place.

Everybody must have had a discussion at one point in his/her life about why those sneakers were hanging on wires. Some says, in memory of a friend who died at that spot; some say to spot where dealers are… Yet, this urban legend has never unveiled satisfactorily.
