Which Roman Emperor is supposed to have fiddled while Rome burned?
The answer is Nero. There is a twist in the tale here. The idea of "fiddling while Rome burned" is a way of saying, "let everything be destroyed, I could not care less." Nothing could be further away from the truth. Nero spent 3 days and 3 nights, with his Imperial guards, fighting against the fire. He threw open his granaries so that the people of Rome would not go hungry. He also threw open his gardens and Palace grounds so that the people could rest there. Then he sat in his room and did some fiddling, because he was too tired to go to sleep. There, you have it. Look at this careless Emperor, fiddling while Rome burned!
Potatoes and onions were supposed to be food for the aristocrats in 15th-century France.
You would be surprised at the answer. The answer is yes! A French botanist brought potatoes and onions over from Scotland, so that the common folk of France did not go hungry. They decided not to eat the humble potato and onions, because hey, these tubers and bulbs grew underground, along with other harmful imps and devils. So, he took an area of land and told everyone that he was cultivating potatoes and onions for the king and the queen and the rest of the aristocrats. He then asked the King to wear the flowers of the potatoes and onions as a fashionable buttonhole. The citizenry was so curious about what precious vegetable was being cultivated so secretly, and being guarded by Royal soldiers, that they decided to steal the potatoes and onions at night. That is what the botanist wanted! Since then, potatoes and onions have been a major part of French cuisine!
Why was Gallileo Gallilei punished by the church?

What is the most common bear in the United States?
Answer: Black bear. What would these black bears weigh? 50 lbs, 100 lbs, 200 lbs, 600 lbs? They usually weigh around 200 to 500 lbs. Would black bears eat a Mcdonald's burger? Probably not if there are enough berries, nuts or honey around. Failing that, they'll go for the burger.
Little know fact: Black bears are a little shy and would rather run away than attack you. They find food with their keen sense of smell, they are mainly vegetarian but will snacl ocassionally on a steak or dead animal. So when you are camping in black bear country, "Be Bear Aware!"
