Trivia Tuesday

A baby can cost new parents 750 hours of sleep in their first year.
Whoa.
I can believe that.
(But life is so worth it.)
-----------
Different trivia...
When two white-faced capuchin monkeys meet, they say hello
by sticking their fingers into each other's noses.
Well, I couldn't find a picture of exactly that, but I read about it many times.
It must be true.


-------------
The Japanese created a smoke alarm for those who can't hear,
which pumps super-spicy wasabi mist into the air to alert them.




Whoa. Have you tasted Wasabi?!
------------

When the Super Bowl champion Giants visited the White House in 1987,
they dumped popcorn on President Reagan.

--------

If you eat onions you can get rid of onion breath by eating parsley.
I guess that's true. ?
----------

A Scarlet Macaw can live up to 80 years.

-------

Clark Kent (Superman in DC Comics) is also a character in the Marvel universe,
where he's actually just a mild-mannered reporter and nothing more.

 --------

Thomas Edison, the legendary inventor, used a one of a kind method to interview people who wanted to join his team. Before checking any of the interviewee’s qualifications, he offered them a bowl of soup. If the interviewee added salt before tasting the soup, he would not be considered to join Edison’s work. His reasoning: the person had too many assumptions.


--------

In 1945, Dwight D. Eisenhower predicted that people would try to dispel the holocaust as a falsehood, and ordered all possible photographs taken of the Nazi crimes to hinder any such attempts.
These last two weeks my daughter-in-law has been teaching 8th graders about the Holocaust.
She said that one could hear a pin drop in those classes. 

Let us never forget.

--------

That's all my trivia for today.
(Of course, some is not trivial trivia.)

See you next time.
