  1. The punctuation following standard measurements, like 5’7″, aren’t quotation marks, they’re primes.
  2. The French term for brass knuckles is “poing americain,” which means “American fist.”
  3. Only eight people have EVER been granted honorary American citizenship, and only two got it when they were alive: Winston Churchill and Mother Teresa. Honorary American citizenship is more of a symbolic gesture anyway, it doesn’t come with any official rights or privileges.
  4. Migraines are three times more common in women than in men.
  5. Listerine was marketed as a feminine hygiene product in 1932, specifically to clean and, quote, “deodorize” your lady parts.
