Did you know or not


Well it's Monday again, started out wet but drying up, well being Monday that means it's did you know day. So what amongst things do you know?

In 1850 two hundred and twenty six soldiers lost their lives when they crossed a suspension bridge that crossed the Maine at Angers in France. They were marching in step which caused an increase in resonance or vibration to the bridge. Since then soldiers often would cross iffy bridges out of step.

Radio waves travel so much faster then sound waves that a broadcast voice will be heard 10,000 miles away sooner then in the back of the room that it was sent from

The movie “Gandhi” featured 300,000 people

Elvis Presley was a avid gun collector and had 40 weapons including M-16s and a Thomson sub-machine gun.

Leather money was used in Russia up until the 17th century
