The Man Who Made Postage Stamps Of His Face For Years And More Now-You-Know Info
Animals, chemicals and the CIA – just some of the topics on our list of facts today! First up, did you know that a furry convention was hit with a chemical attack in 2014? In fact, chlorine gas was released in a hotel hosting the Midwest FurFest convention. The source of the chlorine is still unknown and no arrests have been made, making this one unsolved mystery. Next fact: America doesn’t have buffalo! There is no such thing as a North American buffalo – they’re actually bison. Buffalo are more similar to long-horned cattle, like water buffalo in Africa. So next time you see something called “Buffalo wings” at your local bar, you can make everybody around you feel awkward by insistently calling the “bison wings!” Last but not least: Area 51 became declassified in 2013 when the CIA officially recognized it for the first time ever by responding to archivist Jeffrey Richelson's FOIA request. Up until then, Area 51 had been shrouded in secrecy regarding its aerial reconnaissance programs. Now we can all rest easy knowing what really goes on out there … or can we?
