Yes, but because fossils, the bodies are buried and you can’t see them on ground level.

Opossums eat ticks, can't get rabies, and have bifurcated penises. They are the only marsupials native to the Americas, and can open their mouths wider than any other mammal.

Some primates have specific sounds for specific concepts. Vervet monkeys for example have about 10 different “words”, including leopard, snake and eagle.

I read about someone who was working on decoding parrot language (I can no longer remember the species) and had figured out that every bird made different sound as its first sound but the same sound for its second sound, which he concluded the bird announcing itself (name) and then saying hi.

Humphry Davy actually invented what is recognized as the first 'light bulb'. Thomas Edison refined and perfected his invention and then went on to successfully commercialize it.

Cotton candy was invented by a dentist.
In 1897, he partnered with candy-maker John C. Wharton to develop the cotton candy machine (which at the time was known as "Fairy Floss"), and it's been bringing kids cavities ever since.

Lol that was a mistake. Naming it fairy floss was a good idea though, … until kids started to floss with it to turn into fairies🧚‍♀️🧚‍♂️! At least he would cash in big from all those cavities , 💸💵💴💶💷💰💳💎 … or was that his plan all along?

You can use belladonna leaves mixed with loose-leaf tea to poison someone, and it'll cause hallucinations. Or you could take some apple seeds (like 1/2 a cup, I think?) and blend them up, and add it to a drink. I learned both of these from shows like "Bones" and 'The Mentalist".

All lives matter. Edit. Please don't misunderstand me. I am not condoning ANY violence. I am just saying that If you ignore the fact that more violence is done by the black community against each other, than by other communities against the black community, or other communities against themselves, you are doing everyone a disservice. Violence against everyone needs to be stopped. In this, I am also talking about my home country of Australia. What most people don't ever like think about, is that our current race of Aborigines (yes, that is both the proper term and the name they have chosen to use), is the 3rd race of Aborigines to live on our land. Geological record and the Aborigines own verbal history tells that when they came here, they killed off all of the previous inhabitants. They are a violent culture.

Was it a single medium? How was it judged? When was it discontinued? It’s mind-boggling to me that something as subjective as art would be an Olympic event.

There was a sect of monks in Japan who attempted live mummification. Sokushinbutsu. They basically starved themselves and once they reached a specific point they'd just consume this posionous tea to try to dehydrate themselves. After X amount of time they were buried and other Monks sat vigil and when they were buried they had access to a string that rang a bell. They'd ring the bell like once a day and then when the bell stopped ringing they'd wait 3 days before exhuming them to see if it worked.

Not many worked. Several did but not compared got the numbers that tried it. The ones that worked were put in a temple and the ones that didn't were put to rest. I want to say the last one that happened was in the 1960's or thereabouts but I might be wrong on that. I know it was recent-ish.

*Is. I put was because they aren't supposed to practice the mummification anymore, however they're still around.
