Did You Know...

In 1857 toilet paper was invented by Joseph C. Gayetty of New York City.

(and I thought of having Jayde do this but didn't want to teach her bad habit's, she can figure this out on her own time)

The average person has about 10,000 taste buds and they're replaced every 2 weeks or so. But as a person ages, some of those taste cells don't get replaced. An older person may only have 5,000 working taste buds. That's why certain foods may taste stronger to a child than an adult. Smoking ("they say") also can reduce the number of taste buds a person has.

This is a copy of the first telephone "book" ever issued, it contained only 50 names, and was a single page. It was published in New Haven, Connecticut, by the New Haven District Telephone Company in February 1878.
