Like poison ivy and many other members of the family, part of the cashew plant contains an oily chemical called urushiol, which is a strong irritant for most people and can even be fatal for some if ingested.

More from TodayIFoundOut The Siberian Family Who Didnt See Other Humans For Over 40 Years https://youtu.be/zwN7UNZIevs?list=PLR0XuDegDqP33-NUx7wuKb-3PDj-gRKgR Adolf Hitler's British Nephew Who Joined the U.S. Navy https://youtu.be/WbvR1VtfShw?list=PLR0XuDegDqP33-NUx7wuKb-3PDj-gRKgR In this video: Leo Major was a French Canadian man born in 1921. He probably didn’t think he was going to be more of a hero than the average soldier when he joined up with the Canadian Army at the start of World War II—supposedly he simply joined up because he wanted to show his father, with whom he had a shaky relationship, that he could do something to be proud of.

More from TodayIFoundOut: That Time a Soldier Was Awarded a Posthumous Medal While Still Alive https://youtu.be/2t9C5GOxZ20 In this video: The pilot community, on the whole, is surprisingly close-knit, with fellow pilots seemingly always willing to extend a helping hand to their winged brethren. This is seemingly the case even during war amongst pilots otherwise trying to kill one another, as illustrated previously in our article on the real Red Baron and in the subject of today’s article- that time a German Luftwaffe pilot risked his own life to save the crew of an American B-17 bomber.

Salomon of the U.S. Army’s 105th Infantry, commissioned as a dentist, single-handedly held off a fierce attack of an overwhelming force of Japanese soldiers in order to allow sufficient time for approximately 30 of his comrades to safely retreat. After 15 hours of terrible fighting, when relief finally arrived, Salomon was found dead upon a machine gun, riddled with bullet and bayonet holes and surrounded by 98 dead enemy soldiers; and yet despite his selfless heroism, it still took 57 years for Salomon to receive the Medal of Honor – due to a misread of the rules of war.

Union General Ulysses S. Grant had broken General Robert E. Lee’s defenses in Petersburg, less than twenty five miles from Richmond. By nightfall, the evacuation of Richmond needed to be completed. At approximately midnight, Confederate cabinet members, officials, their families, and the entire treasury (the mythical “Confederate gold”) were finally making their way south to Danville, Virginia on the only railroad still open. This was April 2, 1865. One week later, on April 9th, General Grant and General Lee met at the Appomattox Court House to sign the Confederacy’s official surrender. America’s Civil War was finally over.

Brand new videos 7 days a week! More from TodayIFoundOut In this video: Back in 1981, in an effort to raise some quick funds, American Airlines introduced a $250,000 pass (about $641,000 today) that would allow customers to fly on its airlines for free for the rest of their lives. In 1990, they bumped the price to $600,000 (about $1.07 million today), and then in 1993 to $1.01 million (about 1.7 million today). Despite the sticker price, the airline has since admitted this is one of the costliest mistakes it has ever made.

Kennedy, at his inauguration in front of the Capital, told Americans to “ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.” Over 800 miles away, in Jefferson, Wisconsin in an institution called “St. Coletta School for Exceptional Children” lived a 43 year old woman, who perhaps was listening to the address on the radio. Her name was Rosemary Kennedy and she was President Kennedy’s little sister.

Charles Schulz’s comic strip character Snoopy famously took on the Red Baron in his imaginary air battles aboard his doghouse, often yelling “Curse you, Red Baron!” Movies and songs feature the German war hero.

Unlike most, however, Danny’s trail to becoming one of the hardest working actors in Hollywood began in prison while facing “three gas-chamber [worthy] offences”.

Despite being famous the world over for his balmy, soothing demeanour, his show The Joy of Painting and his amazing ‘fro, we know surprisingly little about arguably one of the best known artists in modern times.

For starters, Zizka, born in 1360, is generally considered to have never lost a battle. What makes this feat even more impressive is that, whereas the few other generals in history who’ve done this had powerful armies at their command, Zizka was in command of only peasants and rebels.

This signaled to the brakemen, and one would emerge from the caboose and work his way toward the engine, while another would leave the engine and work his way back toward the caboose. At each car, the brakemen would stop and turn its brakewheel with a club. Once the train stopped, the flagman would leave the caboose with a flag, lantern or other visual display and walk back down the track to warn any approaching trains.

Known as the Siberian taiga (meaning “forest” in Russian), its harsh, cold climate greatly discourages human habitation. Its steep hills and difficult terrain makes it nearly impossible to travel through it, much less live there. It’s filled with pine and birch trees, nearly undisturbed by humans for centuries. Bears and red foxes wander through the forest during the day, while wolves hunt at night. It’s freezing cold with the average mean yearly temperature at negative five degrees Celsius. Stretching east to west, from the Atlantic Ocean across the continent to the Mediterranean, and extending up north to the Mongolian Arctic border, the Siberian taiga is the largest of Earth’s nearly uninhabited wilderness. Nearly five million square miles of barren land sparsely populated by a few towns containing only a few thousand people.

When he was 20 years old, he was called to join the Japanese army. He promptly quit his job and headed off to training in Japan. At a certain point in his training, he was chosen to be trained at Nakano School as an Imperial Army Intelligence Officer. In this specialized military intelligence training, he was specifically taught methods of gathering intelligence and how to conduct guerrilla warfare. He was being groomed to go in behind enemy lines and be left with small pockets of soldiers to make life miserable for Japan’s enemies and gather intelligence in the process.

Since the invention of the battery, there have been a pretty amazingly diverse number of battery types used with different sizes/shapes/voltages/storage capacities/etc., and also named a variety of things. This gave rise to the need for an industry wide standard, particularly as the lack of an international or even national standard during WWI was problematic for the military.

As the first appearance of this legendary comic strip shows, Calvin sets a trap for a tiger using a tuna sandwich because “tigers will do ANYTHING for a tuna fish sandwich.” Sure enough, hanging by one foot and munching on the sandwich, Calvin’s freshly caught tiger confirms this, “We’re kind of stupid that way.” Want the text version?: http://www.todayifoundout.com/index.php/2018/02/calvin-met-hobbes-story-iconic-comic-strip-elusive-creator/ Sources: http://www.slate.com/articles/arts/culturebox/2005/11/calvin_and_hobbes.html https://www.salon.com/2013/11/13/dear_mr_watterson_remembering_the_last_great_newspaper_comic/ http://www.cleveland.com/living/index.ssf/2010/02/bill_watterson_creator_of_belo.html http://www.cleveland.com/living/index.ssf/2010/02/fans_still_pine_for_calvin_and.html https://books.google.com/books?id=50mEYVVdB1QC&printsec=frontcover&dq=%22Looking+for+Calvin+and+Hobbes&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjIusbg5qDZAhVJGt8KHXXbA8AQ6AEIJzAA#v=onepage&q&f=false http://www.angelfire.com/wa/HOBBES/info/press1.html http://content.time.com/time/specials/packages/article/0,28804,1902376_1902378_1902435,00.html http://articles.latimes.com/1987-04-01/news/vw-770_1_calvin-and-hobbes https://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=5007825 https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/comic-riffs/wp/2014/06/06/exclusive-calvin-and-hobbes-creator-bill-watterson-returns-to-the-comics-page-to-offer-a-few-pearls-gems/?utm_term=.2c09c19f580b https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calvin_and_Hobbes https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Watterson http://mentalfloss.com/article/53216/mental-floss-exclusive-our-interview-bill-watterson Image Credit: https://www.bigstockphoto.com/ru/image-219071002/stock-photo-roasted-peanuts-with-peanut-shells-isolated-on-white-background https://www.bigstockphoto.com/ru/image-229164241/stock-photo-the-cat-looks-at-his-reflection-in-the-mirror-it-sees-a-tiger-there https://www.flickr.com/photos/stacyherbert/4742504895 https://www.flickr.com/photos/actualitte/16229499478 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Potomacwatershedmap.png https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Cuyahoga_County_Ohio_incorporated_and_unincorporated_areas_Chagrin_Falls_highlighted.svg http://www.creative-commons-images.com/highway-signs/f/failure.html https://www.flickr.com/photos/yusaku/6450756501 https://flickr.com/[email protected]/6272173262 https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/23303834473 https://niffniffcastor.deviantart.com/art/Calvin-toaster-243804191 https://www.flickr.com/photos/yugen/6935635843/ https://cdn.pixabay.com/photo/2016/03/23/15/26/books-1274964_960_720.jpg https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/31743421122 https://racheledare.deviantart.com/art/Calvin-and-Hobbes-plus-Perks-of-Being-a-wallflower-459332076 https://www.flickr.com/photos/cluefree/3950683448 Music from Jukedeck - create your own at http://jukedeck.com.

Hobbs boarded the steamship Washington bound for Southampton, England. His official duty was to sell the New York City-based company Day and Newell’s newest product – the parautopic lock – at a trade show – London’s Great Exhibition. But Hobbs had something a bit more nefarious up his sleeve, or rather in the small trunk that accompanied him on the ship. In it sat a large assortment of picks, wrenches, rakes, and other slender tools. You see, Hobbs wasn’t just trying to sell his locks. He was trying to prove that his competitors’ locks were, quite simply, not good enough. He had the tools, skills, and charisma to do just that. Alfred Hobbs was about to launch the Great Lock Controversy of 1851.

The payout? $546 million (about $3.8 billion today), estimated by some to have been about 1/3 of his net worth.

However, unlike other businesses, cemeteries, particularly ones in heavily populated areas, can only operate for so long before they run out of their main product- usable space to put bodies in. The people who buy a burial plot generally purchase the land once and then never move out. So how do cemeteries keep from themselves going under and what happens when they run out of money?

His family immigrated to South Africa when he was quite young, where his father headed a small Jewish community. As a young man, he initially attempted to run his own business in Cape Town but quickly went bankrupt and started working at his father’s ship chandlery instead.

In their early days, the Amish and other Mennonites in Europe were often persecuted by these groups. In addition to that, the Amish, being a pacifist group, didn’t want to associate themselves with those who waged war, so strictly forbid their members from growing mustaches. Today, few men in the Western world choose to grow mustaches, but this tradition remains among the Old Order Amish people, which number about 200,000 in North America.

Shizo Kanakuri is an apparent exception to that rule because he’s fondly remembered for having the worst official time of any Olympic marathon runner in history, taking over 54 years to finish a race he started in 1912.

However, between the 16th and 18th centuries, pineapples were so expensive and rare that they were often displayed like fine works of art.

Wages were also extremely low, so workers themselves often needed to work these long shifts just to get by, including often sending their children to work in the factories as well, rather than getting them educated. With little representation, education, or options, factory workers also tended to work in horrible working conditions to go along with the bad hours. The typical work day at this time lasted anywhere from 10-18 hours per day, six days a week. This all began to change in the 19th century.

More from TodayIFoundOut Using a Charge Card to Buy $170 Million Painting https://youtu.be/QtRfPcrreFA?list=PLR0XuDegDqP0GESJ0DgpgTcThLJVEbFs8 In this video: During the 19th century, there were many freed slaves that went on to lead extremely noteworthy lives despite all the adversity they faced in their lifetime, such as the world famous Frederick Douglass, who not only played an important role in fighting for black people’s rights, but also championed women’s rights, particularly playing an important part in the fight for the right for women to vote. Not everyone can be so accomplished as the great Frederick Douglas, but that doesn’t mean they don’t at times do noteworthy things. This brings us to the subject of today- one Jordan Anderson, a former slave who received a letter from his former master requesting he come back to work. Jordan’s reply was a deliciously satirical letter in which, when reading between the lines, he essentially told him in the most polite and eloquent way possible to kiss his derriere. Widely published throughout the United States and parts of Europe, the response made Jordan a media darling overnight.

But very rarely do the insects come out for a meal during daylight hours unless the sky is cloudy. So where do mosquitoes go during the daytime?

(All total, about 20% of Americans play the lotto). Despite the high number of lotto tickets purchased annually, when playing the lottery (in all its forms), you’ll win an average of just 53 cents for every $1 you spend, making it one of the lowest return rates of any form of commercial gambling, and thus extremely profitable for the various government bodies who run the lotteries.

Brand new videos 7 days a week! In this video: Great question! For those not familiar, I’ll start with a little background on the subject. The Library of Alexandria was founded by either Ptolemy I or his son, Ptolemy II, sometime in the third century B.C. Libraries were nothing new to ancient civilizations, though places to keep etched clay tablets might not be what we would consider a proper library today. The initial goal of the Library of Alexandria was most likely to flaunt Egypt’s enormous wealth rather than provide a place for study and research, but of course the library transformed into something much more.

Another unusual thing that occurred was the capture of what initially was assumed to be a Japanese soldier in a German uniform by American paratroopers. As it turns out, this soldier was neither Japanese nor German and was in fact a young Korean man who, through a bizarre series of incidents, had been conscripted to fight for the Soviets, the Japanese and the Germans during WW2.

However, there is actually a really good reason to have a horizontal crossbar on a bike; namely, the horizontal crossbar ends up adding quite a bit of strength to the frame of the bike. This was particularly important in some of the early bikes, which were often made of significantly weaker materials than modern day frames, occasionally even being made of wood.
