    Before the era of modern astronomy, a star that appeared suddenly where none had been seen before was called a nova, or ''new star''.

    The origin of the word "mustard" comes from two Latin words (mustum ardens) which means "burning must" because in ancient times mustard was prepared with must (unfermented grape juice). This word then gave rise to the word "mustard" in English.

    Blorenge rhymes with a lot of words. Will your response hinge on the cringe factor of witnessing a sureshsbinge???

    Babies are born with 300 bones, by adulthood, we have only 206 in our bodies.

    In the late 19th century, millions of human mummies were used as fuel for locomotives in Egypt where wood and coal was scarce, but mummies were plentiful!

    One study found that men who received oral sex before measuring their erections (no, seriously, this was a real study), reported significantly larger members than men who measured after fantasizing or giving themself a hand.
