Retired flavors: Ben & Jerry’s, renowned for its offbeat ice
cream, adopts a unique approach to discontinued varieties with
their “Flavor Graveyard.” Located at the Ben & Jerry’s Factory
in Waterbury, Vermont (U.S.) and also pictured on a dedicated
page on the company’s website, the Graveyard features granite
headstones with epitaphs honoring the legacy of “dearly depinted”
flavors. The Graveyard started in 1997 with only four
flavors but now lists 35 like Wavy Gravy, Dublin Mudslide,
Economic Crunch, and Holy Cannoli. The Flavor Graveyard
attracts visitors from across the world, allowing ice cream
enthusiasts to pay respects to retired recipes. Recently, the flavor
What a Cluster was laid to rest with an actual ceremony.

Furry heirs: One wealthy woman in China seems to love her
pets more than her three children. The Shanghai woman, with
the surname Liu, has an estate worth $2.8 million and wrote a
will to leave her fortune in the care of a local veterinarian appointed
as the will administrator. The vet is responsible for the care of
her pets. The woman was motivated to make the unusual choice
because she claimed her offspring seldom contacted her and
didn’t visit or care for her when she became ill. Liu had wanted to
leave her money directly to her pets, but that was illegal.

Big find: A diamond about the size of a candy gumdrop was
discovered by a French tourist visiting the Crater of Diamonds
State Park in Murfreesboro, Arkansas (U.S.). The man had experience
panning for gold and searching for ammonite fossils, so he
knew how to go about things. He rented a diamond hunting kit
from the park and set to work. A recent rain had washed away
dirt and uncovered heavy rocks, leaving minerals and diamonds
lying near the surface and making the search a bit easier. He
intends to have the brown, 7.46-carat rock cut into two diamonds,
one for his fiancée and another for his daughter.

Lost wallet: A Chicago woman who lost her wallet during
a visit to Arizona had it returned, 29 years later! A man from
Mesa, Arizona (U.S.), was diving and kayaking in the Salt River
not far from the Goldfield Mine in Apache Junction. He was
with six family members when he found the wallet, about 15 feet
(4.5 m) below the surface. Spending time on the water is the
family’s favorite pastime and they often find rings, jewelry, and
fishing rods. But this time they were glad to see that the wallet
included a driver’s license, which allowed them to search online
for the owner, and eventually return the wallet to her.

correct all our mistakes.” —Euripides

for the greatest numbers.” —Francis Hutcheson
