There are 2 hairs on the posterior end of a fruit fly egg.
I read that statement in a Biology textbook studying for a college exam back in 1976 or 77. It was about 4 AM when I read it and it struck me as funny that anyone would waste the ink to print such a useless fact.
Later in the AM that question was on the Exam. I flunked the test, but was the only person in the class to get that question right. Nearly 40 years later that "fact" is still imbedded in my brain.

Now Christmas is celebrated normally on the January 7th (only a few Catholics might celebrate it on the 25th December). The date is different because the Russian Orthodox church uses the old 'Julian' calendar for religious celebration days. The Orthodox Church also celebrates Advent. But it has fixed dates, starting on 28th November and going to the 6th January, so it's 40 days long.|

The feet of the Statue of Liberty are 32 times larger than an average human foot.
If you want to buy the big lady some shoes, you will need size 879.

Although Americans celebrate July 4th as America's birthday the Declaration of Independence was signed on July 2nd. July 4th was the first public reading and even then the Declaration was merely a protest piece.
New Hampshire is the ninth state to ratify the constitution on June 21,1788, thereby putting the Constitution officially into effect. Thereafter the Congress of Confederation soon meets and sets the start date of the new government; March 4,1789. On March 4th the first US Congress is seated and the United States of America is born.
Washington is inaugurated as the first president on April 30, 1789.
