I Get By With A Little Help From My Friends

unbelievable-facts:


Ben Gifford and Sean Pears grew up in Newton, Massachusetts, where they both attended Newton South High School. Soon after they met, Ben ran for class president, and Sean voted against him. Ben lost. Despite this, Ben and Sean later became close friends, which they have remained until this day.
As they entered their early twenties, inspired by puns and the prospect of winning big, the two men embarked on a journey of risk and reward. Who said “Double or Muffin” first – or why he said it – will likely remain a mystery forever. What’s known is that from the name grew an idea for a muffin shop unlike any other. One where you buy a muffin and flip a coin. Heads, you get a second muffin for free. Tails, you keep the muffin that you already bought. Double, or muffin.

The red thread of fate is an East Asian belief originating from Chinese legend and is also used in Japanese legend. According to this myth, the gods tie an invisible red string around the ankles of those that are destined to meet each other in a certain situation or help each other in a certain way. Often, in Japanese culture, it is thought to be tied around the little finger.
The two people connected by the red thread are destined lovers, regardless of time, place, or circumstance. This magical cord may stretch or tangle, but never break.
