      In 1834, an Ohio physician named Dr. John Cook Bennett declared tomatoes to be a universal panacea that could be used to treat diarrhea, violent bilious attacks, and indigestion. Pretty soon, Bennett was publishing recipes for tomato ketchup, which were then concentrated into pill form and sold as a patent medicine across the country.

      ^Interesting.

      A few more random facts:

      - The Ottoman Empire’s Sultan Ibrahim I had 280 of his concubines drowned in the ocean after one of them slept with another man.

      - Ice age Britons used skulls of the dead as cups.

      - After Pope Gregory IX associated cats with devil worship, cats throughout Europe were exterminated in droves. Ironically, this sudden lack of cats led to the spread of the bubonic plague because infected rats ran free. The bubonic plague, or "black death" as it was called, killed 100 million people.

      - In ancient Egypt, servants were smeared with honey in order to attract flies away from the pharaoh.

      - People were buried alive so often in the 19th century that inventors patented safety coffins that would give the “dead” the ability to alert those above ground if they were still alive.

      - In the 15th century Wallachian ruler Vlad III (often referred to as Vlad Tepes or Vlad the Impaler) impaled 20,000 Ottoman Turks on long, sharp poles on the banks of the Danube River.

      Yes. The king in that story was King Shahriar. He would marry a new bride each day and have them executed the following morning to prevent them from betraying him. (The Thousand and One Nights is one of my favourite stories actually).

      The caduceus is often used incorrectly as a symbol of healthcare organisations and medical practice (especially in North America) due to confusion with the traditional medical symbol, the rod of Asclepius, which has only one snake and is never depicted with wings.

      I recently read about a rather interesting historical figure, Princess Olga of Kiev. She's known for her aggressive campaign against the Eastern European tribes and avenging the death of her husband. It seems like history is often much stranger than fiction.

      When husband, Igor of Kiev, was murdered by an Eastern Slavic tribe known as the Drevlians, she took over the rule of Kiev and the surrounding provinces. However, the Drevlians were not accustomed to and did not want a female ruler, so they sent twenty of their most eligible men to persuade Princess Olga to remarry and give up her rule of Kievan Rus. The suitors were carried by boat to the courtyard of her castle, and then dropped into a large pit where they were buried alive.

      She then sent word to the Drevlian capital of Iskorosten that she had accepted the proposal and would remarry, but required that the most distinguished men among the Drevlians be present in order to formally accept the offer of marriage. The Drevlians agreed and sent the most distinguished ambassadors and nobility. Upon their arrival, Princess Olga bid them welcome and after they entered, had the doors locked and the building set afire, burning them alive. Ironically, she then held a memorial for the victims of the fire and once the Drevlian guests had arrived, ordered her royal guard to kill all 5,000 of them.

      ^ What I find crazier is that she was declared a saint by the Easter Orthodox Church.

      #Coffee's original purpose was to aid in worshiping God. It was thus banned in Europe and called "the Muslim drink".

      Saint Patrick's Day, or the Feast of Saint Patrick , is a cultural and religious celebration held on 17 March, the traditional death date of Saint Patrick , the foremost patron saint of Ireland.


      To celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, today’s Google Doodle takes us to the mystical Skellig Michael, a remote island just off the coast of County Kerry, Ireland. The breathtaking destination is a World Heritage Site and home to many species of seabirds — like puffins, gannets, and razorbills If you’re brave enough to scale the 600 steps to the top of the rocky precipice, you’ll see a magnificent view of the mainland and the Atlantic Ocean from 714 feet above sea level.


      Each year at least four boat licences are granted to tour operators who run trips to Skellig Michael during the summer season. For safety reasons, because the steps are rocky, steep, and old, climbs are not permitted during very wet or windy weather


      On Mar 17 The Search engine Google is showing this animated Doodle for the St. Patrick's Day .
