There are more female millionaires than male millionaires.

Egg white consists of four distinct parts - the inner part which surrounds the yolk, the runny outer part which cushions the inner part, and two parts at the ends which anchor the yolk and keep it in position in the centre of the egg.

Ever since the Lindbergh Baby's body was found, serious doubts have existed as to whether it was really him.

The identification was supposedly based on a sterling silver thumb guard, placed on babies to prevent thumb-sucking.

No DNA testing will ever be done, because the little skeleton was supposedly cremated, and the ashes supposedly scattered from a small plane piloted by Charles Lindbergh, alone in the plane.

Honey never goes bad. A 2,000 year old (sealed) jar of honey was found in the ruins of Pompeii and it was still edible.

Salt and sugar are natural preservatives.

Nutmeg is also poisonous when too much is eaten.

And people can die from drinking too much water at one time.

Piffle.

No dinosaurs were scientists.

They didn't have colleges to earn degrees from.

The following is so weird that I have to post it here.

First write a T, then write either U or UU, then either L or LL, then either E or EE, and finally add an N or don't add anything. You get 16 combinations of letters, thus

TULE
TULEN
TULEE
TULEEN
TULLE
TULLEN
TULLEE
TULLEEN
TUULE
TUULEN
TUULEE
TUULEEN
TUULLE
TUULLEN
TUULLEE
TUULLEEN

All sixteen of them are real words in Finnish. Never mind their meaning, the principle itself is stunning.

The only national flag in the world that has any amount of gray in it, is that of Malta.

One of the early American flags was yellow, and had a snake on it.

The State of Rhode Island's full official name is the longest in the U.S.: It's called "The State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations".

Another Canadian football fact: While the end zones are now 20 yards long, prior to 1986, they were 25 yards long.

According to eye-tracking devices, dogs and NTs read human faces the exact same way. Dogs do not read other dogs' faces the way they read human faces.

Every country's flag is a quadrilateral except for Nepal's flag. It is shaped like two stacked triangles, representing the Himalaya Mountains and the two religions of Hinduism and Buddhism. The crescent moon represents the Royal House, while the Sun is the symbol of the Rana family of Nepal.
