Monday Facts












As promised, this week's facts are all things Chinese:

The bristled toothbrush originated in China around the year 1498. the bristles, fixed to a bamboo or bone handle, were neck hairs from Siberian boars.
Toilet paper was invented by the Chinese. In 1391, the Bureau of Imperial Supplies began producing 720,000 sheet of toilet paper a year for exclusive use by the emperor. Each sheet measured 2 feet by 3 feet.
Chinese recreational innovations: chess, fireworks, fishing pole nad and hook, hot air balloon, kite, and parachute.

Next week, it will be sports facts!

Monday Facts

















Last week we looked at the wonderful world of bugs. Here some things you might not know about bookworms, books, and the people write them.

Bookworms are actually beetles. They proliferate in libraries, where dust, dirt, heat, darkness, and poor ventilation are prevalent. The mature female lays her eggs on the edges of books or in the crevices of bookshelves, and when hatched the larvae burrow into the books.
Dr. Seuss wrote Green Eggs and Ham after his editor challenged him to produce a book using fewer that 50 different words.
The first chapter of Joseph Heller's landmark Catch-22 was published in the quarterly literary magazine New World Writing #7 in 1955 under the title, "Catch-18." The same issue carried a chapter from Jack Kerouac's On the Road, published under a pseudonym.
In 2003, the personal fortune of J.K. Rowling - best-selling British author of the wildly popular Harry Potter books - surpassed that of the Queen of England.

And now you know!
