    The world’s largest chocolate Easter egg was about twice as tall as an adult giraffe.

    I hope no one is eggsagerating. It sounds eggcellent.

    When did giraffe become a unit of measurement? Why not three stacked elephants or seventeen thousand hamsters?

    In 1945 the US Presidential Seal was redesigned so the bald eagle faced away from the arrows, symbolising turning away from war. Churchill commented that it’d be better if they put the bald eagle’s head on a swivel.

    80 years later and Churchill still has a point.

    Don’t they change the seal on the carpet of the Oval Office, so the eagle faces towards the arrows if they are at war?

    The arrows are based off of Haudenosaunee tradition regarding peace.

    Thomas Cook offered tours to public executions in the 1800s..

    Bet they made a killing.

    There's quite a few people that would sadly still pay for seeing this sort of thing today... They largely make up the readership of The Sun & Daily Mail.

    So popular that  people were losing their heads over it.

    Per Craig...

    2 Stacked Giraffes = 3 Stacked Elephants = 17,000 Stacked Hamsters

    PT Barnum would have hired him to display those measures to an audience for sure.

    In 1896, the 937th most popular name for a boy in the US was Josephine.

    Easy on the mustard, ya butterfingered pony-soldier.

    I guess the question to ask now is what was 938th?

    probably Daphne...

    Slow night?

    More gold is recoverable from 1 tonne of electronic scrap from personal computers than from 17 tonnes of raw gold ore.

    In a similar vein (hehe) it takes less energy to mine a dollar worth of gold than a dollar worth of Bitcoin. 

    Interesting nugget.

    The people who really run organisations are usually found several levels down, where it’s still possible to get things done.

    Like - the two most important people in any school are the head secretary and the head custodian. One of them makes sure you can actually do your job and get paid for it, and the other makes sure you have loo paper.
