    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.

    In the Spanish language there is no word for toes. They are called "dedos del pie"
    This translates as "fingers of the feet"

    Protocol dictates it but from time to time they breach protocol only when the next in line is a toddler or a baby. They are not exactly like the 9- year-old King Tut.

    The first revolving door was used in Rector's Restaurant in Times Square, New York in 1899 with a catching tagline: ''Always open always close.'' ...because the door keeps it sealed even when you go through it.
