A handful of splendid finds from around the worldwide web:

Everything is yours, everything is not yours. "My high school advisor laughed when I showed him my list of schools: Princeton, Yale, Georgetown. He thought I should aim lower. Everybody did. But then I got a letter: waitlisted at Yale." [Matter]

Versailles 1973: How one show changed American fashion history. "On a late November night during 1973, five American fashion designers gathered at the Palace of Versailles to show against the five French designers considered the best in the world . . . . Many who attended remember it as the day American fashion changed as a whole, both in its approach to design as well as in its international perception." [Harper's Bazaar]

A solar-powered plane successfully flew across the Pacific, from Japan to Hawaii, breaking the world record. "The plane was powered without a drop of jet fuel, using only electricity generated from the sun striking the photovoltaic panel across its wing." [ThinkProgress]

44 years after joining the show, Sesame Street's Maria is retiring. The actress was nominated twice for an Emmy award as a performer and won 15 Emmy awards as a scriptwriter. [The AV Club]
