Thread: Do you know?

    Smile Do you know?

    Hi guys,
    I came across following interesting facts and thought of sharing it with you all . If you know any just feel free to add it here:

    Barbie's full name is Barbara Millicent Roberts

    Ancient Egyptian women used to wear perfume cones made of wax that would melt in the heat letting out a nice fragrance.

    Chopsticks originated from China approximately 4,000 years ago.

    Frisbee got its name from William Russel Frisbee, who was a pie baker. He used to sell his pies in a thin tin pan, which had Frisbee written on it. When Walter Frederick Morrison thought of the idea of making saucer like disks to play catch, he visited the campus of Yale and noticed people there were using the pie pan to play catch so he therefore renamed his invention to Frisbee.
    Cheers,

    Well, 4,000 years is still impressive if you ask me.

    Yes, but it's not like chopsticks are the most difficult thing to conjure up.. they aren't, say, a radio-active x-ray
