Interesting History Facts!

Post  CicelyS on Sun May 04, 2014 11:27 pm

Some fun facts about history:

1-) Some thing you might never really think, but after reading might be quite obvious is that in the time the Great Pyramids of Giza were built, Woolly Mammoths still roamed the earth!

2) Most of you will know the jewelry store Tiffany & Co. but what you might not know is that this jewelry shop was founded before Italy was even a country! Can you figure out how long ago that was?

3) Most people don't address this as the same time period, but Martin Luther King Jr. and Anne Frank lived in the same time. For some strange reason, most people have been found to think that they were born in completely different eras!

4) In the last 3,500 years, if you sum up all the time that there have been absolutely no wars on earth, you will get a grand total of.... 230 years. That is seriously sad.

5) Tea bags were invented accidentally in 1904. A tea merchant thought to send tea in silk bags instead of boxes to customers would make lifer easier. Through a misunderstanding, customers thought you had to put the bags in the water too!
