"The most common name for privately owned boats is Serenity. The second most common is Wet Dream."

That second one! LOL! Really?


"'What in tarnation!' derives from the expression 'What in eternal damnation!'"

That's a new one!

"The infinity symbol is called a 'lemniscate'."


Did not know that either!

EDIT: Sorry about that! I had a typo and didn't catch it! Thanks Sjhigbee!

"Despite being made famous by Dutch paintings and Spain's Don Quixote, windmills originated in Persia before the tenth century."


Another new tidbit!

"Wedding rings date back thousands of years. The ancient Romans and Egyptians both believed that a vein called the vena amoris ran directly from the ring finger to the heart."


Also interesting!
