Young Rainer Maria Rilke's Pretty Dresses
Rainer Maria Rilke's success as a lyric poet may have been predicted by his childhood friends. Rilke's mother, grieving over the loss of a daughter at the time of his birth, treated him like a girl, called him "Sophie," and dolled him up pretty dresses—until he was six years old. [Perhaps to compensate for his early years, at the age of eleven, his father had him enrolled in a military academy.]

The sculptor Lorado Taft left the Art Institute of Chicago one windy day and found himself walking on the opposite side of the street from a pair of nuns whose wind-blown robes offered the perfect model for an effect he had been hoping to create in a classical sculpture upon which he was working. Having observed the nuns for some time, Taft noticed that another strange man was also closely following the pair.

Milt Sosin's Overcoat
One day Milt Sosin was given an assignment by The News which took him away from Miami's warm winter. He bought an overcoat. "He kept turning it in in his expense report, over and over again, and they kept rejecting it," Will Lester, an Associated Press political writer, later recalled. "Finally he stopped. They asked him what happened, why he stopped filing it. He told them: 'It's in there. You find it.'" Broken into little pieces, in the itemized accounts of meals and drinks and taxi rides, was Milt Sosin's overcoat.

Paris Hilton: Spoiled Brat
In 2003, Hilton heiress Paris Hilton was cast to appear in the fish-out-of-water reality show "The Simple Life" (a takeoff on the '60s sitcom "Green Acres"). "I think the biggest misconception about me," she declared, "is that I'm this spoiled brat. But I'm not. I'm, like, the total opposite." For her stint on the show, Paris brought several racks of designer clothes. And to celebrate her 21st birthday, she threw no fewer than five parties for herself—in New York, Hollywood, Las Vegas, London, and Tokyo. [Among Hilton's bonehead comments on the show: "What is Wal-Mart? 'Cause, like, they sell wall stuff?"]
