Facts That Will Change Your Concept Of Time Forever....

This one is a follow up post to my previous one where we talked about re-thinking and re-analyzing the timelines of the existence of early civilizations. (Indus Valley, Egyptian, Mesopotamian, Chinese) I found some shocking facts which are hard to believe:- 1. Betty White is older than sliced bread. 2. Harvard University was founded before calculus was invented. 3. The last time the Chicago Cubs won a World Series, the Ottoman Empire still existed. 4. The Pyramids of Giza were built in the time of wooly mammoths. 5. The fax machine was invented the same year as the Oregon trail migration. 6. The jewelry store Tiffany & Co. was founded before Italy was a country. 7. France was still using the guillotine when “Star Wars” came out. 8. Two of President John Tyler’s grandsons are still alive (as of Nov 2014). (Photo by Pixabay) Link to the article:

I did my home job for 7, and it is interesting : the last time the guillotine was used in France was in September 10 1977, and the French version of Star Wars was issued on September 11, but the US version was on air still May 25, so it is a correct information.

@Daljinder My dad was a huge Cubs fan. He was looking forward to going to a game when he passed. He said they did win the World Series when he was a kid. I think that was the only time they did. Certainly not in my lifetime.

@VivaLaDani13 The wooly mammoth and Pyramid of Giza was the one that shocked me and made me second guess these facts. But they ARE true facts! Topffer added more information on guillotine and star wars in his response thread along with the mammoth. He totally squicked me out saying someone he knew ate steak made out of mammoth that was frozen thousand years ago in Vandana's thread. ICK!
