Trivia of the Day for Monday

Every person has a unique tongue print.

The ‘spot’ on 7UP comes from its inventor who had a red eye. He was albino.

315 entries in Webster’s 1996 Dictionary were misspelled.

During the chariot scene in ‘Ben Hur’ a small red car can be seen in the distance.

Most chemical drain openers open blocked drains by eating and boiling their way through the clog. Obviously, chemicals strong enough to dissolve grease, hair, paper, and other items can do great damage to your eyes, lungs, and skin. Accidentally swallowing even a small amount of drain opener can result in grave injuries or death.

    A common urban legend about Charles Leiper Grigg is that he was an albino, and that the red dot on the bottle is supposed to represent his red eyes. In fact there are no official references to Grigg having been an albino, and in (black-and-white) photographs his eyes appear normally pigmented. 7-up logo with the red dot came into use in the 1970s, after Grigg had died.[4]
