- Human teeth are the only part of the body that cannot heal themselves. Teeth are coated in enamel, which is not a living tissue.
- New Coke has a terrible reputation, but before it launched, it actually beat original Coke and Pepsi in blind taste tests.
- The shuttlecock that’s used in badminton today was created by Eddie Bauer, the person, not the store. Before he patented a standard shuttlecock, there was no consistent size, weight, or material for them.
- Walt Disney was so bothered by the movie “Psycho” that he banned Alfred Hitchcock from Disneyland.
- There’s a name for the “apron” of fat that hangs down from the bottom of a person’s stomach: It’s called a “pannus” . . . a term that’s derived from the Latin for “tablecloth.”
