1) Death by Golden Shower was Once Used as a Method of Execution Execution by golden shower was once used by the Pathans (a.k.a. “Pashtuns”). British soldier John Masters, who was stationed in British India when he was 18 in 1933, described this and other methods of execution for captured soldiers in the region, “…if they [Pathans] captured any soldiers… especially if the soldiers were Sikhs or British, they would usually castrate and behead them. Both these operations were frequently done by the women. Sometimes they would torture prisoners with the death of a thousand cuts, pushing grass and thorns into each wound as it was made. Sometimes they would peg the prisoner out and, with a stick, force his jaws so wide open that he could not swallow, and then the women would urinate in his open mouth (taking turns) till he drowned.” 2) 7-Up Originally Contained Psychiatric Medication The lemon-lime flavored soda, 7-UP, was created by Charles Grigg of the Howdy Corporation in 1929, originally named "Bib-Label Lithiated Lemon-Lime Soda", and included lithium citrate in its formula. This is a mood-stabilizing drug that was popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and is still occasionally used today for people with conditions like bipolar disorder. Surprisingly, lithium citrate stuck around in 7-UP all the way until 1950, when research showed it had potentially dangerous side effects. 3) Playdoh was Originally Wallpaper Cleaner In 1933, a young Cleo McVicker was at a meeting with Kroger grocery store executives when they asked if his company, Kutol, made wallpaper cleaner. With Kutol desperately needing money, Cleo told them they did- a bold lie. Kroger subsequently ordered 15,000 cases of the product with a $5,000 penalty if Kutol didn’t deliver on time. Kutol then copied a commonly used wallpaper cleaner recipe and the compound that ultimately would become Play-Doh was born.As coal heat began to go the way of the dodo and vinyl wallpaper was invented, few needed wallpaper cleaner anymore and the McVicker’s product was virtually obsolete. That’s when Kay Zufall, the sister-in-law of one of the executives at Kutol came up with the idea of using the substance as a toy modeling compound. The result was that Kutol removed the detergent from the dough and added an almond scent and some coloring. They re-christen the compound: “Kutol’s Rainbow Modeling Compound”, which was soon changed to “Play-Doh” at the suggestion of Kay. With a little help from Bob Keeshan, better known as Captain Kangaroo, who was promised 2% of the sales generated if he promoted it on his show, Play-Doh quickly became a national hit. 4) Bubble Wrap was Originally Wallpaper Bubble Wrap was invented by two engineers Al Fielding and Marc Chavannes in Hawthorne, N.J. in 1957. The two were not, however, trying to make a product to be used as packaging material. Rather, they were trying to create a textured wallpaper. When this use of the product didn’t pan out, they decided to market it as greenhouse insulation. This idea didn’t sell well either.Then, on October the 5, 1959, IBM announced their new 1401 variable word length computer and a lightbulb went off- Bubble Wrap could be used as a good packaging material to protect the computer while it was being shipped. The pair pitched the idea to IBM, who loved it. And the rest, as they say, is history. 5) Einstein Got His Wife to Agree to a Divorce Him by Promising His Nobel Prize Funds to Her if He Ever Won One In 1919, Einstein was looking to finally divorce his wife who had thus far resisted the idea, despite that they had long been separated. To convince her, he wrote her a letter stating, “Dear Mileva, The endeavor finally to put my private affairs in some state of order prompts me to suggest the divorce to you for the second time... I would grant you significant pecuniary advantages through particularly generous concessions. 9,000 M instead of 6,000 M, with the provision that 2,000 of it be deposited annually for the benefit of the children. The Nobel Prize — in the event of the divorce and in the event that it is bestowed upon me — would be ceded to you in full… The widow’s pension would be promised to you in the case of a divorce. Naturally, I would make such huge sacrifices only in the case of a voluntary divorce. If you do not consent to the divorce, from now on, not a cent about 6,000 M per year will be sent to Switzerland…” Despite that he’d not yet won a Nobel Prize for her to collect the large cash prize, after thinking it over for a week, she accepted. 6) There Once was a Man Who ate an Entire Airplane The eating disorder known as pica is characterized by persistent and compulsive cravings to eat nonfood items. Some people have turned their appetite for these non-digestable foods into a career. Perhaps one of the most notable individuals on this front is MICHEL LOTITO, aka Monsieu Mangetout- "Mister Eats All", who specialized in eating metal. If that doesn’t sound too impressive, perhaps we should mention that from 1959 to 1997, Michel consumed nearly nine tons of metal, including 18 bicycles, 15 shopping carts, 7 television sets, 6 chandeliers, 2 bed frames, an entire Cessna airplane (which took him about two years), 1 coffin, and 400m of a steel chain. 7) Sleeping Beauty is Based on a Story of a King Who Raped a Sleeping Girl The story is called The Sun, the Moon, and Talia, written, or at the least collected and composed, by the Italian poet Giambattista Basile in 1634. The story goes that on a hunting trip, a king stumbles on an estate in the woods where he finds a beautiful young woman that he can’t wake up. So , to quote, “...being on fire with love, he carried her to a couch and, having gathered the fruits of love, left her lying there. Then he returned to his own kingdom and for a long time entirely forgot the affair.”Ultimately the sleeping girl, cared for by fairies, gave birth to twins, then later woke up. It’s at this point the king remembered the girl and decided to go back to the house to see her again... This time, though, he found her awake. After the king explained to her how she’d gotten pregnant, naturally she fell in love with him… (He was, no doubt, dreamy) and he decided he loved her too. The only problem- he was already married. When the queen found out about the affair, she attempts to have the babies fed to the king unknowingly and then tries to kill Talia. Instead the chef hides the kids and the King kills his wife and marries his raped mistress, and they live happily ever after, with the last line of the story being (translated): “Lucky people, so ’tis said, Are blessed by Fortune whilst in bed.” 8) There Once was a Girl Who Had No Vagina but Got Stabbed and Had a Baby Published in the British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, in 1988, there is a rather curious paper entitled: Oral conception. Impregnation via the proximal gastrointestinal tract in a patient with an aplastic distal vagina. Case report. In it, the doctors describes a 15-year-old girl in the small African country of Lesotho who arrived at a local hospital with all the signs of a woman in labor. Upon examination, the doctors found no vagina, only a shallow skin dimple. After a successful C-section resulted in a healthy baby boy, the doctors noted: “While closing the abdominal wall, curiosity could not be contained any longer and the patient was interviewed with the help of a sympathetic nursing sister… The patient was well aware of the fact that she had no vagina and she had started oral experiments after disappointing attempts at conventional intercourse. Just before she was stabbed in the abdomen [some 278 days previous to giving birth] she had practiced fellatio with her new boyfriend and was caught in the act by her former lover. The fight with knives ensued.” The physicians later learned that while performing surgery to repair the stab wounds, the surgeons had found two holes that opened the girl's stomach to her abdominal cavity. Thus, it is theorized by the later doctors in the report that the sperm in the girl's stomach gained access to her reproductive organs through her injured gastrointestinal tract shortly after she ingested it. Interestingly, getting pregnant as the result of sperm originating in a woman’s abdomen is possible enough that in the 1980s, during the early days of fertility treatments, doctors sometimes performed a procedure called DIPI (direct intraperitoneal insemination) during which they injected sperm into the lower abdomen hoping that it would find its way to an egg, similar to what happened in the case report, except obviously not going through the stomach. 9) There Once was a Guy Who Survived Two Nuclear Explosions At the age of 29, Tsutomu Yamaguchi was on his way back home from a three month long business trip to Hiroshima on August 6, 1945. On his way to the train station, he saw a bomber flying over the city and "two small parachutes", then a rush of blinding light, sound, wind, and heat knocked him to the ground. Mr. Yamaguchi had the misfortune of being approximately 3 km from a nuclear blast. The immediate effects of this were his ear drums rupturing, temporarily blindness, and burns over much of his upper body. Three days later he found himself back at home in Nagasaki, and even reported for work… According to Yamaguchi, while discussing with his boss how he got the burns, the air-raid sirens went off and then, once again, he saw a blinding white light… Surprisingly, unlike so many others, the only major permanent physical health problem’s Yamaguchi had as the result of the bombings and exposure to large amounts of ionizing radiation was the loss of hearing in his left ear. He lived to the ripe old age of 93, dying of stomach cancer on January 4, 2010. 10) The Founder of Fedex once Gambled the Company’s Last Funds in Las Vegas to Save It The man is Frederick W. Smith who founded FedEx in 1971. The company struggled in its early days and at its low point, all they had was about $5000 left in the bank. Desperate, Smith made a final pitch for more funding, but was refused, leaving FedEx more or less dead on the ground when they’d not be able to fuel their planes the following Monday.Instead of accepting defeat, Smith flew to Las Vegas for the weekend and played Black Jack with the remaining company funds. Thanks to this, by Monday FedEx had $32,000 in its bank account, which was just enough to cover the fuel for their planes and to continue operating a few days more. When asked what he’d been thinking taking a chance like that with company funds, he stated: “What difference does it make? Without the funds for the fuel companies, we couldn’t have flown anyway.”It turns out, a few days more was all he needed. Shortly thereafter, Smith successfully managed to raise $11 million to keep the company afloat and, by 1976, Federal Express made its first profit of $3.6 million. Today the company employs over 300,000 people and has annual revenues of about $47 billion. 11) Daylight Saving Time Once Thwarted a Terrorist Attack In September of 1999, the West Bank was on daylight saving time while Israel was on standard time; West Bank terrorists prepared bombs set on timers and smuggled them to their associates in Israel. As a result, the bombs exploded one hour sooner than the terrorists in Israel thought they would. Thus, the three terrorists died instead of the two busloads of people who were the intended targets. 12) The Can Opener wasn’t Invented for Decades After the Can In 1810, Nicholas Appert won a prize offered by Napoleon Bonaparte for his method of keeping food fresh by sterilization. Although he didn’t understand exactly why it worked, Appert found that food stayed fresh for long periods of time if you could seal it tightly in a container, in his case a glass jar, and then heat it up. Later that year an inventor, Peter Durand, received a patent for the world’s first can made of iron and tin. Combined with Appert’s sterilization method, long term canned food preservation became possible. Unfortunately, there was no can opener forthcoming owing to how thick the can and lids were. The age old “smash it with a hammer and knife” technique was the common opening method. Ultimately a method for making thinner cans was created, resulting in various can openers being invented, the first patented in 1858, nearly a half century after the can was invented. 13) The Guy Who Invented the Fender Guitar Never Learned to Play Guitar Leo Fender, inventor of one of the most popular electric guitar brands in the world, was an accountant before losing his job in the Great Depression. When this happened, he decided to turn his hobby of tinkering with electronics into a business- “Fender Radio and Record Shop” where he ultimately invented various amplifiers and later guitars. Despite designing the first commercially successful solid-body electric guitar, the Telecaster, and the most influential of all electric guitars, the Stratocaster, and inventing the solid-body electric bass guitar, the Precision bass, Leo Fender never learned to play guitar. 14) Piccasso’s Full Name Can’t Be Posted on Twitter Pablo Picasso’s full name was Pablo Diego José Francisco de Paula Juan Nepomuceno María de los Remedios Cipriano de la Santísima Trinidad Ruiz y Picasso. 15) High Heels Were Once the Height of Men’s Fashion The first high heel wearers are believed to have been Persian horseback warriors sometime around the ninth century. The extended heel is thought to have been developed specifically for riding, to keep the rider’s foot from slipping out of the stirrups. After a group of Persian diplomats visited Europe in the late 16th century, Persian-style high heeled shoes were adopted by Western European aristocrats. The shoes became a status symbol, with ornate designs and ultra-high heels coming into fashion, such as the case of King Louis XIV sporting four inch heels, often decorated with elaborate battle scenes. Not to be outdone, women of the 1600s started copying the fashion. Around the same time, lower class citizens also started wearing high heels, resulting in the elite making their heels increasingly higher. They also began to differentiate heels into two kinds- fat heels for men and skinny for women. By the 18th century, high heels disappeared almost completely from men’s fashion outside of cowboy boots, and not long after women mostly stopped wearing them too. However, the heel came back into fashion for women in the mid-19th century with the advent of photography. Why? Pornographers began dressing models for risqué post cards and other photographs in little else but high heels. 16) Green Eggs and Ham was the Product of a Bet Dr. Seuss, a.k.a. Theodore Geisel, wrote “Green Eggs and Ham” on a bet that he couldn’t write a book with 50 or fewer distinct words. The bet was made in 1960 with Bennett Cerf, the co-founder of Random House, and was for $50 (about $404 today). Green Eggs and Ham went on to become the fourth best-selling English children’s book in history. 17) Al Capone’s Brother was a Prohibition Officer Al Capone’s brother, James Vincenzo Capone, left the family at the age of 16 to join the circus in 1908, traveling throughout the Midwest going by the name “Richard Hart”, in order to mask his Italian heritage. He ultimately settled in Homer, Nebraska, where he became Homer’s town marshal and later a state sheriff. It was then that he chose to seek out more excitement by becoming a prohibition enforcement officer, something he was extremely effective at, though known to be overly brutal in handling bootleggers. Around this same time, his brother Al, was rising in fame as a gangster in Chicago, particularly known for, of course, bootlegging. 18) There Once was a Siberian Family Who Didn’t Encounter Other Humans for Over 40 Years Karp Lykov was a member of a long persecuted fundamentalist Russian Orthodox sect known as the Old Believers. In 1936, while working the fields with his brother near their village, a Communist guard came by and shot his brother right in front of him. Karp immediately grabbed his family (which, at the time, only consisted of his wife, Akulina , his son Savin, and his 2-year old daughter Natalia) and disappeared into the Siberian wilderness. It would be another 42 years before the family would encounter other humans again- a team of geologists spotted their hut when flying over in a helicopter.Karp and his wife (who would die of starvation in 1961 thanks to a cold snap that killed all their crops the summer before), had two more children in the wild, Dmitry and Agafia. For reference, Agafia was 35 when she first saw humans outside of her family. None of the family knew anything of the outside world from 1936 to 1978. By 1988, Agafia was the only surviving member of the family. She remained at her remote home until January of 2016 when she had to be airlifted to a hospital due to severe pain in her leg. After healing up, however, she returned to the harsh Siberian wilderness. 19) There is an ATM in Antarctica There is an ATM at McMurdo Station in Antarctica, about 840 miles or 1351 km from the South Pole. Not surprisingly, this ATM is the most southern ATM in the world. The most northern ATM in the world is in Longyearbyen, Svalbard, Norway, which is about half way between mainland Norway and the North Pole. The world’s highest ATM is at Khanjerab Pass 15,397 ft (4.7 km) above sea level. Finally, the world’s lowest ATM is in Ein Bokek, near the Dead Sea in a grocery store that is 1381 ft. (420 m) below sea level. 20) The First Woman to Cast a Vote in Chicago Did so with Her Feet The woman was Kittie Smith. Smith lost her arms as a child, after having both her arms and hands burned badly on a kitchen stove. As an adult, Kittie eventually became the first woman to vote in Chicago Illinois in 1913. ”Hold on there!” You say? “The 19th Amendment wasn’t passed until 1920. How was she able to vote in 1913?” In Illinois, on June 26, 1913, women began being allowed to vote on presidential and many other elections. Shortly after, an estimated 250,000 women, with Kittie Smith’s feet leading the way, voted in Chicago Illinois when the first Illinois election took place after that bill passed. 21) Charles Osborne had the Hiccups for 68 Straight Years In 1922, Charles Osborne was weighing a hog for slaughter when he had a little accident. As he stated, “I was hanging a 350 pound hog for butchering. I picked it up and then I fell down. I felt nothing, but the doctor said later that I busted a blood vessel the size of a pin in my brain.” Directly after the fall, Osborne began hiccupping at a rate of around 40 times per minute on average. Throughout his life, this gradually slowed to about 20 hiccups per minute until his hiccups finally stopped mysteriously about one year before his death in 1991.This approximate 68 year stretch of hiccups from 1922 to 1990 is considered a world record for continuous hiccups. 22) KFC is the Traditional Christmas Dinner in Japan In 1974, KFC started a huge advertising campaign in Japan called “Kurisumasu ni wa kentakkii!” (Kentucky for Christmas!), with the idea being that in a land bereft of the customary turkey for celebratory dinner, fried chicken was the next best thing. This campaign was ludicrously popular in part thanks to the popularity of American culture in Japan at the time. Today, the custom of eating KFC for Christmas is so popular in Japan that you’ll not only see lines of people snaked outside every branch in the country, but people even reserve their buckets of weeks, and sometimes months, in advance just to see it on their dinner tables on Christmas! 23) In 1899, 90% of All Taxis in New York City were Electric Cars In 1842, two inventors, American, Thomas Davenport, and a Scotsman, Robert Davidson, separately created the first practical electric cars with rechargeable batteries. By 1899, the technology had improved such that 90% of all taxis in New York City were electric cars. Not only that, but in 1899 and 1900, electric cars outsold all other types of cars, such as gas and steam powered vehicles. Ultimately Henry Ford and the rise of highways killed the electric car industry. Nonetheless, Ford’s wife, Clara, preferred the 1914 Detroit Electric car, which had a range of 80 miles, over her husband’s cars. 24) There Once was a Man who was a Dwarf and Later a Giant Adam Rainer of Graz, Austria reached a height of just 4 feet 6.3 inches (1.38 m) by the age of 18. For reference, the cutoff for someone being classified as a dwarf is usually considered to be an adult height of less than 4 feet 10 inches (1.47 m). According to Rainier, by the time he hit 21, while still barely classified as a dwarf in height, his shoe size had shot up to a European size 53, which would be about a size 20 in the U.S. (for reference, Shaquille O’Neal wears a size US size 22-23).Then his body followed- from his 21st birthday to his 32nd, Rainer went from just under 4 feet 10 inches tall to 7 feet 2 inches (1.47 m to 2.18 m). As to what caused his bizarre growth spurt as an adult, doctors F. Windholz and A. Mandl discovered a tumor on his pituitary gland, which resulted in a condition known as acromegaly, where the pituitary gland produces excessive amounts of growth hormone during adulthood. To try to fix the problem, in 1930 doctors removed the tumor, but he still continued to grow, albeit at a much slower rate. He died at the age of 51 in 1950 at a height of about 7 feet 8 inches (2.34 m), making him the only known person to spend time as an adult officially classified as a dwarf and then as a giant. 25) The Inventor of the Pringles can was Buried in One Upon his death in 2008, just 20 days shy of his 90th birthday, the inventor of the Pringles can, Fredric J. Baur, was cremated. In keeping with his wishes, his family filled a Pringles can with as much of his ashes as fit and buried it. As to what flavor, his son, Larry, stated, “My siblings and I briefly debated what flavor to use, but I said, ‘Look, we need to use the original.’”
