In 1852, the first ever British public men's toilet opens in London. There's no record on where did people queue before that. Maybe some trees in the city park.
And February 3rd, 1863 marked the first time author Samuel Clemens used the pen name Mark Twain.
While 1892 records the longest boxing match under the so-called "modern rules." Harry Sharpe and Frank Crosby fought for 77 rounds in Nameoki, Illinois. I bet the idea of slow motion came up when a filmmaker saw the fight after 30 rounds. And who knows, maybe it could've gone longer, but some guy clubbed one of the fighters so he could go home.
1894 saw the birth of Norman Rockwell. An artist, like my partner eloquently said, for the common people. He died on November 8, 1978, at the age of 84. Want to see his works? Visit The Norman Rockwell Museum here.
THE UNITED STATES IS ON A ROLL!
Another coolness point for having The National Lawnmower Racing!
From the site's FAQ: "For safety reasons we will never offer suggestions of how to make your family mower faster!"
Dad: This should do it (pushing the gas) WOOOHOOOO! Haha! I told you I can make it faster, didn't I, Honey? ... Honey? HONEY!And on Mower Requirements: "CUTTING BLADES MUST BE REMOVED COMPLETELY FROM ALL MOWERS."
Thank God. If the race was a no-holds-barred, Ben Hur-style action, America would've gotten two coolness points instead. Current standing: America 4 while Indonesia is trailing behind by 2 point. The future looks bleak for our country.
