The Thread of Useless Information

"In Hong Kong, a betrayed wife is legally allowed to kill her adulterous husband, but may only do so with her bare hands. The husband's lover may be killed in any manner desired."

"People in Siberia often buy milk frozen on a stick. Milk is technically considered to be a food and not a beverage. Containing almost 250 chemical compounds, it is the most complex food on earth."

"In Poland, a brewery once developed a plumbing problem in which beer was accidentally pumped into the incoming water supply. It meant that the residents of the town got free beer on tap for one day." (Is it bad that I thought of Tom when I read this?)

"The world's most expensive coffee, at $130 a pound, is called Kopi Luwak. It is in the droppings of a type of marsupial that eats only the very best coffee beans. Plantation workers track them and scoop their precious excrement."

Just a few of my favorites.

In Australia, it's "illegal" to sing in the shower. Also, in Michigan, it's "illegal" for a married woman to cut her hair without her husbands consent. Which I find it funny because these laws really can't be inforced.

In America, it's illegal for married men to sell land and property without his wife's consent;however, a married woman can sell land and property without her spouses consent.

In Saudi Arabia, a woman reportedly may divorce her husband if he does not keep her supplied with coffee.

The first man to distill bourbon whiskey in the United States was a Baptist preacher, in 1789.

Leonardo da Vinci could write with one hand and draw with the other at the same time.

An apple, onion, and potato all have the same taste. The differences in flavor are caused by their smell. To prove this - pinch your nose and take a bite from each. They will all taste sweet.

Peter Karpin, a German espionage agent in World War I, was seized by French Intelligence agents in 1914 as soon as he entered the country. Keeping his capture a secret, the French sent faked reports from Karpin to Germany and intercepted the agent's wages and expense money until Karpin escaped in 1917. With those funds the French purchased an automobile, which, in 1919, in occupied Rurh, accidentally ran down and killed a man, who proved to be Peter Karpin.
