I know plenty useless things, and one that I can laugh about with history majors is about the jester Triboulet. He is one of the best jesters in my opinion.

They let him pick his death, and the jester said he wanted to die of old age and kept living XD

You would get the greatest effect if all the people in China were brought together in one place, each with their own chair. If we allow them one square metre each, this would require an area of 1200 sq km (470 square miles), corresponding to a square with sides of 35 km (21 miles). The resulting earthquake would certainly register on measuring devices but would not cause any appreciable damage.

There are several methods to trick the cow into thinking they still have a calf, but the oldest method known to get around this natural mechanism was to blow air into the cow's anus or vagina. Today, we know this irritates their cervix and causes them to produce oxytocin (the hormone responsible for both cervical dilation and milk production), but 5,500 years ago, how the hell did people discover this?
