Each of today's stories offers us a chance to answer the same question: how much of yourself would you be willing to give up in exchange for an extraordinary life? One of our subjects had no choice, while the other rushed in head-first.
On our tour of the Cabinet of Curiosities today, we will meet two unique individuals. One spent his life looking for fame, while the other wanted to escape it. Whether they each achieved their goals is up for debate.
Sometimes people try hard to fool those around them, while others find themselves being fooled by someone else. Either way, the stories they create are wonderfully entertaining, and delightfully unusual—perfect additions to the Cabinet.
Some people welcome limitations as a way of testing their prowess and endurance. Others have those constraints forced upon them. This tour through the Cabinet will give us a glimpse of both kinds of people.
Some people just aren't who they appear to be. Some of them hide their past deep beneath a layer of deception, while others wear their duplicity in plain sight. Either way, they make for great additions to the Cabinet of Curiosities.
