    Lewis and Clark discovered that blue beads were the most favored in trade with Native Americans along their route of exploration. I love trivia…

    You have to give John Graziano credit. He goes to great lengths to find these oddities.

    I wonder if that millipede gets ingrown toenails.

    The blue came from the lapis lazuli stone.

    In a country of over one bilion people, how can it possibly be known that there is only one female mechanic? And how do you define mechanic, I have no formal training, and I am not that good at it but I do over 75% of the work on my tractors, quads, truck and other equipment. Am I a mechanic or not?

    Being an arthropod, millipedes wear their skeletons on their outside. So no in grown toenails since they wear them.

    In many ways Hindustan or Baharat or as the British called it “India” anot only still sexist in certain areas and the inculcated aspect of an entrenched form of layered and walled off caste system that keeps people from moving up and laterally in their social hierarchies.

    Yes, I would say you are a mechanic. And I suspect you’re also adept at many other skills associated with self-sufficiency.

    Ah, I just noticed that nobody else gets credit for submitting the facts today.
    Here I thought that purple was the most expensive pigment, given its association with royalty.

    Also, I assume that 750 is an estimate. Nature isn’t big on round numbers in the base 10.
