The french didn't invent the Guillotine. They adapted it from a Scottish Execution device called The MAIDEN




The Earth has at least seven Moons. Apart from the big one we can all see, there are another six Near-Earth Asteroids which follow the earth around the sun. The first was discovered in 1997 and is called Cruithne, but six more have been identified since and may one day settle down into a regular orbit.




Jaffa Cakes are not made from oranges. They are made from APRICOTS. The famous "orangey" jam is actually apricot pulp, sugar and a squirt of tangerine oil.

James Bond's favourite drink was NOT vodka martini. Of Bond's 317 drinks in all the original Ian Fleming 007 books, he preferred whisky by a long way - he drinks 101glasses of it in all. Champagne is second (30 glasses) but he only ever has 19 Vodka Martinis.

He nicked the Idea from the Scots. :|
it seems you're not so wrong fraidy. but the thing is that the guillotine is inspired by the scot's maiden thing. Guillotine adapted one essential thing coz he changed the razor that was horizontal for a more inclined one to be sure that the head is cut at the first time without any suffering :wink:

The exact numbers and weights of the stone blocks in the Great Pyramid are unknown, because the core of the pyramid is built around an enormous natural rock of unknown dimensions. :)
