FACTS

 

Another Monday means more facts, so here you are................


In 1943 American bakers were ordered to stop selling sliced bread for the duration of World War 11, only whole loaves were allowed. The reason for this was never explained, how it helped the war effort no one knows.


Karl Benz invented the car in 1885.


In the Stone Age people who didn't feel well someone would cut a hole in the persons body with a sharp stone to allow the pain to escape.....Really how does anyone know that.


The ancient Romans had shows called Pantomimes hundreds of years ago, a man would read out a story while silent actors played the

parts behind him.


A Flemish artist is responsible for the worlds smallest paintings in history, including a picture of a miller and his mill painted on a grain of corn.
