No one particular topic today! I came across these gems and couldn’t resist slinging them together. Enjoy!
Did you know:
– The oldest condoms found date back to the 1640s. It was found in the cess pool of Dudley Castle in England.
**A really interesting side note- The castle has had a big increase in the number of tourists due to the fact that they keep snapping photos of a ghost! They’ve dubbed her The Grey Lady who was known as Dorothy Beaumont when she was alive. Dorothy died along with her baby shortly after childbirth. She had two requests. She wanted to be buried next to her daughter and for her husband to attend the funeral. Neither happened. Her spirit is condemned to wander the castle. If that’s not a story prompt, I don’t know what is!
– Everyone of us has a unique tongue print. It could be used to identify people as well as fingerprints.
– A whale has been calling out for a mate for over two decades, sending his song throughout the ocean. His high pitched call is so different from the other whales, he’s shunned. This just breaks my heart.
– Kentucky had a family of people with blue skin! They lived there for many generations. I”M NOT LYING! The Fulgate family lived in Troublesome Creek and developed this very strange skin color through a combination of inbreeding and a rare genetic condition called methemoglobinemia. ……….well, you just knew inbreeding had to be a part of it somehow!
There you go, folks. A whole cornucopia of strange and interesting tidbits just for you. Have one of your characters weave in the fact that kangaroos have three vaginas.
I dare you.
