ADD Brain Food Fun Facts, High Heels, World War 2 and Fat Gladiators


Did you know that Gladiators were fat, World
War 2 hasn’t ended yet, and high heels were originally designed for men? Hi, I’m Amy,
and you’re about to get dosed. I know, ladies, when you think of Gladiators, you
think of….(sigh) yeah. But the truth is, this is probably a more accurate depiction. (shivver) Karl Grossschmidt, a paleo-pathologist from
the medical university of Vienna, released his discovery that Gladiators, though mostly
vegetarian in their diet, consumed massive amounts of simple carbohydrates to increase
their levels of subcutaneous fat. When you think about it, it makes sense. If someone
is about to slice you open, a layer of blubber is basically your last line of defense before
you’re slit open like a taun-taun. However, promoters not only liked the fat because their fighters
died less, but more surface area means more surface wounds means more blood and a better
show all around. Now, it might be more historically accurate,
but please, what woman out there wants to see this Russel Crowe in a toga? Keep lying
to us Hollywood, please. Speaking of lies, high heels are the pride
of many women, but the simple truth is, this calf accentuating, butt lifting, modern day wardrobe accessory actually had more of a practical application and was made for men. Though some believe that high heels were first
used in 1533 in a marriage between the soon to be Queen of France and Henry II,
it’s more likely this claim was the move of some early Italian marketers to make the
destabilizing footware more appealing to mass markets. However, heels were worn by Mongolian
horsemen to keep their feet from sliding out of the stirrups when they rode their horses.
And long before there was any kind of a fashion statement involved, butchers of ancient Egypt
would wear high heels to minimize slipping on the organs and entrails of the animals they
butchered. I guess, I don’t know, a trash can didn’t sound
as appealing as wielding large sharp knives while balancing on little pegs in the blood
and guts on a stone slab floor. That’s not gonna end badly at all! Did you know that we can’t have a World
War III yet, because World War II is still playing out? When Japan signed the terms of surrender
on the USS Missouri on September 2nd, 1945 everyone rejoiced! Well, almost everyone.
The Kuril Islands is a narrow strip of islands that stretch just over 800 miles creating
a dotted line between Russia and Northern Japan. The archipelago that divides the Sea
of Okhotsk from the North Pacific consists of 56 islands; and both countries are laying
claim to them. Of course, it’s understandable that both
countries want to keep the claim, as the marine system surrounding the island chain
is rich, and though it makes up a section of the Ring of Fire, because of it’s tectonic
instability and the fact that the islands are in essence volcanoes, the beauty of the
islands alone would warrant at least a Carnival Cruise excursion and, would attract more than
it’s fair share of celebrities… Oh, okay, never show that picture again, okay? For over 70 years now, Russia and
Japan have failed to come to any kind of terms concerning these islands, and so technically
they are still at war, and have not signed any kind of treaty. Now of course, neither side is bombing the
other or invading, and you can bet the Sony Russian website isn’t there to taunt the
Ruskies on what they cannot have. But the odds of either side conceding, or I don’t
know, giving it back to the Ainu people who still live there, anytime soon,
is as likely as me finding any modern technology that would outlast my original Walkman.
No kidding! It still works. So thank you for circulating 4 liters of Nitrogen-heavy
