* Lloyd’s of London insured Bruce Springsteen’s voice for 3.5 million English pounds.
* Physician Amynthas of Alexandria, Greece, performed the first known nose job in the Third Century B.C.
* Military toilet paper is printed in a camouflage design, since white could attract enemy fire.

* It takes the energy from 50 leaves on an apple tree to produce one ripe fruit.
